i am the Atlantic,
i run deep,
life can survive in the darkest parts of me,
i run in different directions,
but my waves follow the moon,
i run into other oceans,
that i can never stray from,
i love everything from myself to infinity
i believe in oceans and worlds beyond me,
with the moon as a guide and the stars as companions
believing is just as easy as knowing,
and i know that i am a soul as deep and as beautiful as the ocean
seemingly endless self – g.c.
the persona in my dreams,
a hidden part of me:
“you are not just a nook in time,
a chasm in the infinite
swallowing a reality
embodiment of it’s totality
in works created
sure of divinity
commemoration of soul
discovery and realization
a dream chaser
each day she will grow
goddess – g.c.
my eyes to see,
my nose to smell,
my elephant ears to hear,
my hands to create art,
my legs to travel,
between them to birth life,
my hips to carry,
my tongue to express,
my lips to soothe and heal,
my arms to hold.
this is a body.
it deserves love,
but not adulation,
and most certainly not condemnation.
this is a body.
i am grateful to have one.
i am grateful to experience life in its form,
but this body began,
and this body will end.
i know no beginning and no end.
because i am not a body.
i am a soul.
nothing to separate the night from the day
i never tire
excited for life
time isn’t there
i don’t age
i am a soul thriving
my perception draws what surrounds me
it draws stars and universes in passing eyes
from my soul
i will not allow my intuition, my voice, my answers to be shut down
so ideals and lies can speak
my perspective will remain positive
as my life grows and I change
the truth isn’t harsh, if you have the right mindset – g.c.
just as nature
we all appear so simple
but looks deceive
we are all so vast and complex
you are someone only you can fully know
don’t ever look for the answers to another’s mystery
give up your desire to know
because like nature
no one is just one answer
too many to manage
too many to make sense of
but to break it down
make it simple
we are infinite
and that is all that matters
chemistry – g.c.
if you have felt warmth from the sun,
felt the gentle handshake of the wind,
the caress of the skin,
you are not alone.
you can feel safe knowing the world,
like a mother,
will care for you,
its arms are always open.
run into them.
feel the world wrapped around you.
its love is infinite and always there.
it is up to you to feel it.
it is up to you to forgive.
control is yours.
you own your decisions.
you can decide to love and feel loved,
or you can close your eyes,
and hide the world’s beauty and love,
decide that the world has hurt you,
and that is all you will ever feel,
so choose love.
do not hurt yourself.
love is the option you gain, when you surrender your security – g.c.
i must learn to love you,
for i do not know how
you take away the day,
make my bones shiver,
then constrict my body in so many layers of clothing,
that i lack the freedom of movement
you keep me hidden inside,
you steal the ability for my feet to dance across the bare primitive earth,
for two old souls to say hello
i must say,
on the rare occasion that i do say hello to you,
i am in awe of your beauty and wish to meet again
when i was a child,
we used to meet so often in the layers of the pristine white blanket that you lay,
you’d nourish my soul,
when you’d land on my begging tongue,
watching pearly flakes melt from their crystal shapes
i hide from the colorless confetti,
because i have lost my taste,
and only crave warmth
wishy washy – g.c.
no one has got it all figured out,
never feel lonely,
find peace in the messiness
we are not one dimensional,
we are infinite and infinitely capable
surrender your ego’s desire for perfection,
perfection is unobtainable,
something you can not strive for,
because you are already presently perfect,
and will continue to be,
as you grow and change,
and all the different layers to you,
begin to bloom
nobody’s perfect- g.c.
you can not be spoken
you can not be solved
you are felt deeply
you can not be hidden on the surface
you can be seen so clearly
yet sometimes you are beyond what my eyes allow me to see
you are everywhere
yet hard to find
when i look outside of me
you are the twinkle in an eye
the breath that has been stolen by the stars
you are the warmth of gentle lips
the toes that dance in the sand
you are the finger that points to the clouds
the hand that pulls the curtain back to let the sun in
you are the loudest laughter
and the tiniest giggles
you are the tongue that meets the snowflake
the hips that sway to the music
you are infinite
you are a billion analogies
and a trillion possibilities
you are love
i am love
i think the best way to gain compassion and understanding is through loving yourself,
you come to the realization that we all experience our own worlds,
other’s pain becomes transparent,
and once you love yourself,
you come to understand your own inner pain,
you become connected,
and do not wish pain onto others
it is the realization that we are the same at the core,
seeking a sense of wholeness,
in a fragmented world,
ruled by separation
