If you see my face I’d smile in the space Would you see the real me? Either way, I’ll be free If you deal with my phase I’d fall in your gaze Would you then be afraid? I’m more than reflection’s shade If you read my phrase I’d still be traveling my maze Would you frame what I feel? I am me, always real If you stitch with colorful threads Wound tight, my love still spreads Would the patterns be revealed? I’ll be courageous, take down my shield If you look in darker clouds I stand apart from the crowds Would you shine the pure energy? I am my own galactic synergy If you sea me dead I still exist, never fled Would I fly in the sky consciously? I’d be at home, honestly If you smell the essence I’d absorb love’s fluorescence Would you inhale the serenity? I’d exhale fear’s identity If you sense with grace I dream the rest of this chase Would you be divine synchronicity? I am infinity’s electricity

I’ve thought about this poem all day There’s just too much to say Won’t be perfect, but I’ll let my heart splay Hoping it’ll take away confusion’s stay I love when I can play in mystery Because clarity is history Most days I love the up and down Today, that love has yet to be found This world is a cage Perpetually lying on its stage People are being controlled Free thinking has been sold Listening to what they’re told Love, power and freedom is old Maybe I’m the weird one For stepping out of this stun The world isn’t all of it Simply just a bit I don’t live in this world, I live in mine Reality is missing my design And not quite ready to re-align When the clutter ends I’ll remember it’s meant to be Presenting themselves as friends Tests are what I choose to see I’ll miss you on this specific date We used to walk through this very gate I hear your voice As I make every choice I know you’re still watching It’s not that shocking We get to talk in my dreams Then our realities split at the seams Thank you for being on my path Today it feels so new, the aftermath I knew this wouldn’t be flawless At least I could sit in my solace Emotions are gifts Embracing my shifts
And here’s the image version 💛. This piece is a mixture of my state of mind, remembering the tests are meant to be and missing a soul who’s passed on. I hope it reminds you to be fearless and free in embracing all your shifts -Ace
I wish this page could write itself. Maybe it would tell me the answers to my never-ending questions, maybe it would speak the future, maybe it would be one line or maybe it would become alive in a way I’ve never known. But, maybe this page has always been writing itself, because I’ve been on adventures I never knew existed – adventures through the beyond.
It’s funny when there is so much on my mind, that it’s tricky to write about one single thing. I wish I could get it all out, or maybe the page could do it for me. I’m starting to realize the page has always been me, the keyboard has always been me, the delete button has always been me, the space button has always been me – the expression has always been me.
I can’t shake this weird feeling that I’ve written this before. Maybe in another land, maybe in a dream, maybe in a past, maybe in a different time, but for sure as this me. I love riding every impossible through the vast oceans of daydreaming, I love watching my beliefs dance in the wind and drift off into each sunset. And then a little bird rests on my shoulder and grounds me in the roots of truth once again, then I feel at home in the meadows of my wonders.
When I write, this page listens. When I write, this page speaks. When I write, this page is. There’s a beauty to the beingness of this page, it goes beyond the divine. I can feel its thoughts as I type and delete something, I can feel its smile as I keep writing through my “mistakes”. I wish I could feel its future, I wish I could feel its clarity. But that’s one thing about this page, it is never crystal clear because crystal clear takes away the adventures.
So, would this page be truly whole if it had an ending? Would this page be complete if it had a concrete beginning? Or is this page cemented in time because the unknown flows through?
For now, this is just another musing of a curious soul who lives in the adrenaline of the beyond.
A little caterpillar on a big oak tree, Falling in love with the hide and see, (finding the best spot for shade, blending in with the bark, making a small mark). Turning over a new leaf Or at least trying, adding belief. Tumbling from branches, hitting the ground, Life’s great adventure lies in playing around. (No creature could have been stiller when it came to pursuing the big dreams)?
Inching to crawl, Hearing the call, (Beyond words and thoughts, it was coming) Something so deep, A cry to evolve, a deafening weep. (A dance within, change was looming in place).
With another slither, The cocoon whispered, “come hither” Everything became s l o w, Sky and sight disappeared. (All was blank, in this blanket’s show).
Hugging its skin like gentle fluff, The cocoon became soothing, Breaking the warmth, becoming rough, Cold air brushed the new body – blooming. Like a flower that came to life, Testing its wings like they were petals, The butterfly took a flight, A new world went into view, The flapping wings appeared blue, Something ineffable, only divine, As if nothing could take away its sun-kissed shine, It floated over the trees, Tasting nature’s nectar, finally free. Ready to make another leap, Fear started to weep. The adrenaline of truly being alive, Was such a magical dive. Something inside was afraid fear would arrive, But through a smile of the eyes, And a breath of love, So many more surprises Awaited these wings delicately above.
Thank you to my awesome pal, Aarushi for doing this collaboration with me!!! We had a vision for this post and it came to life so beautifully…better than I could’ve ever envisioned! Which piece is your favorite? Which image do you like best? We’d so love to hear!!
