Happy Place 2

A familiar tune
Loose and free
A good book
With new places and lands to see.
Smells and yells of a new city 
Where the people are witty.
Food good for the soul
An unfamiliar bowl 
A slow  walk 
Path wide and narrow.. A place to rest feet... on a dock.
A willow tree tall and strong
Taking a nap oh so long 
Happy place 
Take me to a sacred space
Where the trees grow freely 
Where the birds never stop singing.
When evening comes
The Stars show off some 
I close my eyes
Make a wish
To take me some place 
Find it
Feel it.

The Mirror

I feel the glass slide down my fingers.
Smooth and seamless.
Yet my hands leave a mark.
Like some how a piece of me is left.
It's clear, but I can't see through it.
I can see someone staring back at me.
Bright blue eyes,
Brown hair pulled back,
Some strands hang down framing the face.
Which is white, but not like porcelain.
A few freckles here and there;
Pimples there and there. 
Lips plump but a dull red.
The glass reflects
What is shown in its frame.
What I see, I rather shatter the mirror
In pieces. 
Because my true beauty comes from my heart.
Those who can't, see what the mirror shines.
Only a meaningless reflection
Hiding who you really are.
So raise your fists! 
Shatter the glass!
That echoes what you see.
As worthless and being a nobody,
Unvail like a bride at her wedding
And show your true beauty.
What is on the inside
Is kind and warm,
Joyful and couragous,
And outrageous.
You're not the person in the mirror,
That glass can't tell you who to be.
So what's it going to be?

Before you read, I have tried to post as often as possible. I know I've been busy, but I miss my audience. I apologize for that. This piece is a message from a dear friend of mind. Whose brought my heart back to life. I love you dear friend. Thank you. Boondocks, I hope you get the same love from someone in your life.

Precious Heart,
Oh, what a joy you are in the world
I love having your presence
Loved doing life together:
Sharing laughter, study time, and watching you grow
In who you are.
I am proud of what you have become
Precious Heart,
You have crumbled in the face of brokenness, spiritual battle, physical and emotional pain.
Precious Heart, You have conquered all the trouble.
You're an honor to be called my friend.
You have trusted me with your deepest fears
I have welcomed you with my arms.
Make time for joy little heart,
Make time for laughter,
Make time for your journey
For your second chance has begun. 
Precious Heart, 
dont be afraid
of the quakes,
crackes and hurricanes. 
Those storms will blow on
The sun will begin a new dawn.
So Precious Heart,
Farewell. Till we meet again.
