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,

miracle being.”

a chasm in the infinite

swallowing a reality

embodiment of it’s totality

reflected valiantly

in works created

sure of divinity

empowered being

living abundantly

commemoration of soul

discovery and realization

truths told

a dream chaser

each day she will grow

goddess – g.c.

I Am

1495835570912

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 grows.

it changes.

 

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.

but i,

i know no beginning and no end.

because i am not a body.

i am a soul.

– g.c.

nothing to separate the night from the day

i never tire

always awake

an energy

excited for life

time isn’t there

i don’t age

i grow

i learn

i live

i am a soul thriving

i see

my perception draws what surrounds me

it draws stars and universes in passing eyes

i speak

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

in actuality

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

but many

too many to manage

too many to make sense of

but to break it down

make it simple

we are infinite

infinite love

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,

hurt.

so choose love.

love yourself.

do not hurt yourself.

 

love is the option you gain, when you surrender your security – g.c.

winter,

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,

under covers

 

you steal the ability for my feet to dance across the bare primitive earth,

for two old souls to say hello 

 

but,

winter,

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

 

winter,

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

 

now,

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

– g.c.

i think the best way to gain compassion and understanding is through loving yourself,

knowing 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,

battered souls,

seeking a sense of wholeness,

in a fragmented world,

ruled by separation

– g.c
