A Million Tomorrows

elementaryschoolYou’re alive in a body full of
baggage and wiring.  Turn away from any voices that whisper lies.

Protect the hope in your pocket.
Warn those who reach for it. Don’t let dissapointments throw you to the muddy ground.

Slowly reveal your scars.
Pick at them carefully, without letting
them bleed.  You’re a grown up for God’s sakes.  Never give up the child inside, or you’ll be lost forever.

Be obnoxiously curious.  Find the answers built on an endless list of ignorant questions. Don’t be afraid to ask.

Build your life on what could be.
Your dreams can fill a million tomorrows.

Time and Treason


Look in the mirror to
see the terms of your journey.
Time and treason have tried to
lead you to other conclusions.
Negative thought is the
predatory of joyful memory.

Try to recognize yourself in the
form that you’ve become.
Sagging and wrinkles are the
result of hope, fear, laughter,
heartbreak and joy.
Embrace yourself, and never
let go.

Don’t let gravity anchor the
spirit of who you once were.
Dance to a new song that was
written for you today.

A life well lived is the gift that
you wear openly.  A face does
not lie to please the vain.
The scale can’t stop my fancy.
My reflection is a map showing
each stop along the way.

I am beautiful.
