A Poem From the Other Side

 

“I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.”
— Vincent van Gogh

 

With half my heart
I took a step
and faltered
unsure of direction
I didn’t feel it
and so was frozen in place
I didn’t want it bad enough
and withdrew.
Life happened and years passed
Half-heartedly I lived them all
yet nothing called to me
and then something called to me
with siren’s voice
I could not resist
I threw myself in
with all of my existence striving
and striving
no holding back
I jumped
Falling in yet enjoying the ride
and still the call goes on.
— G A Rosenberg

For Us All

 

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
― Paulo Coelho

 

For you
I will become better
My words chosen with more care
My actions will flow with my words
I will be kinder more meditative
and strive to love the other
in everyone I see.
For myself
I will become fulfilled
I will find my purpose
and seek my will
My being will flow with the all
I will be truer more honest
and strive to live the truth
that I have yet to learn,
For the All
I will become integral
I will find the patterns
and seek the divine
in everything I see.
I will be compassionate more hopeful
and strive to teach the heart
that beats in each of us
