Illusions

Illusions shatter
Images are just that.

Who am I behind the projection
Of a desire, a need
Have I become a parody of
A self, seeking expression.

Am I more
Will I disappoint
Do these doubts reveal
A self fearful, unrealised.

Illusions vanish
Reality beckons.

A self contented
Flowing with the river
Floating, relishing
The rush of life water

Each moment complete
Each moment exquisite
Each moment a wonder
A reality that just is.

Good enough

aging hands

 

Looking at these hands:

– the years of wiping tears as they fall

– the years of holding, soothing the child to sleep

– the years of caressing with deep pain within

– the years of toiling with illusions of happiness

Enough.

No more.

You are good enough, more than this.

Be gentle with yourself

Today has been one of those days, where I have demanded lots from myself, produced little and judged myself a little harshly.  This is a reminder to self, and for those who do the same at one time or another.

 

Doing the best
