For The Animals

Dear Reader, This poem is about a cause that is very close to my heart. Compassion starts with ourselves and then extends to others around us and then to ALL living things.  We share this world with other beings who have their own purpose and reason for being here. They are definitely not on this…

Suffering

Dear Reader, Why do we suffer? I believe that suffering is inevitable, just as Buddha himself once discovered.  How much and how long we suffer, is up to us. I noticed that I suffer more when I start to think about all the problems in this world and I feel so helpless and overwhelmed.  This…

Being Real

Dear Reader, How many of us can say that we are at all our times, our authentic selves?  Society and conditioning has taught us to believe that we should always look our best, paste on that fake smile even if we are dying inside.  Heaven forbid that anyone should see our true feelings because everyone…

Forgiveness

Dear Reader, Forgiving ourselves and others is such a powerful and liberating act, yet it is also sometimes very difficult to let go.  I think that this poem pretty much sums up my experience and my awakening to the path of forgiveness.  I  don’t think that I have fully recovered from this experience yet but…

To My Heart

Dear Reader, how many of us still believe in Love?  In this New Age world filled with disillusions about what Love actually is, how do we recognise true Love?  If someone hurts us, we feel the heartache and put a ‘band-aid’ on to make it better.  However, that pain never truly goes away, instead it…

I Am Enough

Dear Reader, I have been a bit quiet the last few days, mainly due to my focus being drawn elsewhere.  However, I am back and glad to be :)) My poem today talks about the internal struggle that many of us, if not all of us go through on a daily basis.  My belief is that…

My Soul

Dear Reader, What is a Soul?  Do you believe that you have a Soul?  This poem accurately describes my experience with my Soul.  For a time, after I learnt this, I had written on my mirror with a marker pen, the following: ‘How may I serve?’ to remind myself everyday that I do have a…

My Angels

Dear Reader, Happy Valentine’s Day.  Let us not forget that the most important person to love is yourself.  The poem I am sharing today, reminds me of how important it is to love ourselves, happiness is not external to us, it comes from within. Everyone goes through a hard time at some point in their…

My Path To Enlightenment

Dear Reader, I am sure that many of us are desire to improve, heal and lead the lives we were meant to live.  I have found that in seeking this ‘elusive golden path’ called Enlightenment, I was under the impression that all my troubles would simply melt away and that I will be problem free,…

Can You See Me?

Can You See Me?   I feel so lonely, Even though I am not alone I feel so invisible, It is as if I am already gone   I reach out to you, Can you see me? But you look right through, Its as if you don’t hear my plea   I feel so rejected…
