Where stillness lays, how do I move?
You slowly slither till you improve
In silence, am I really small?
Quite the contrary, you’re alive with all

Every step becomes your road map
Are labels just my little mind’s trap?
A force inside pushes my crawl
What if this road leads to a fall?

If I lose fear then can I stand?
Taking a chance helps strength expand
Does courage come, or is it a chase?
It’s a paradox divinely guided by grace

I breathe and rise with every day
But in this journey, have I lost my sway?
So many questions hold me back
Will destiny keep me on track?

Do guided steps lead to a run?
Lessons you learn all mean you won
Was I born where this Universe begun?
As the stars whisper through the shine of my sun

In a place, through a life, and within my soul
Is this a journey of finding home, while becoming whole?
An infinite light brightens my obstacle course
If I look within will I find this light source?

    Yes indeed, labels are mind traps! Whatever keeps us boxed or caged, the opposite of how we are born in sovereignty of spirit. We can either be builders of walls and fences or we can enter the love flow that ignores or these traps. Beautifully written, yes my dear, let’s go beyond!! We are wild and free❤💃🎆🤸‍♀️🌠😇💖

  21. Another seamless collaboration between you Ace and your fellow poet, Grace.
    I loved the pondering and questioning and this is one of my favorite lines,
    “In a place, through a life, and within my soul
    Is this a journey of finding home, while becoming whole?”
    Fear is our obstacle on this journey..and that resides within us…
    Faith, trust and putting one foot in front of the other…will surely get us on our way..all the rest is part of the unknown, beyond our senses…that awaits us.
    Be courageous and be joyous!
    ❤️🌟🤗
