Darkness

Love, loss, pain and suffering.

Such is my understanding of times of woe and distress.

Darkness, despair, sorrow and sadness dance despicably paired.

Chained and imprisoned sentenced to death.

Wisdom of the ages, revealed to you in mystery, do with it what you so will.

Revealed to you plainly one message for all.

All who hear take heed. The time is upon us in the now and here… nowhere… now here.

Sweet kisses meet with death daily.

A poem by Anna De Snyder

Connection

Every action has a reaction 💜

Freedom, like the push and pull of the tide.

Give and take, make no mistake.

All in order, all in connection.

Whispers of the ocean breathing in and out like a

pulsing heart, gentle rhythmic motion, powerful.

Every breath connects to the next, like the sun rise and sun set.

Connect to the source of life to experience true freedom.

Endings

It no longer serves you,

close the door,

don’t look back.

Respect you,

say goodbye.

Life is short,

make it count.

Live each day,

yay the cliché;

like the last.

Make a stand,

speak your truth

with conviction.

Don’t even sweat

the reaction.

Done is done.

You have all the answers;

to all that troubles you,

you know what to do.

Don’t let fear mislead

your judgment.

Fear misguides,

disguises solutions.

You know for sure,

be still and know.

Unknown

I walk the path unknown,

unfamiliar.

At ease, I trust my steps are aligned.

Destination is destination.

Every step, perceived mis-steps.

Lead to where you need to be.

Precise, no accidents,

all in order.

Knowing and acceptance become

freedom.

Be honest, most of all be honest

with yourself. And then,

wherever your path will take you,

you’ll know it’s headed in the right direction.

Saturday thoughts

Celebrate the person you are.

You’re not the opinions of others.

You’re uniquely you.

You don’t need to agree if you disagree.

You don’t need to follow the crowd.

You don’t need to please others, to the

detriment of yourself. You need to

speak your truth and be the real you.

Speak and act in a way that

celebrates, appreciates, all of

who you are. Do it with love.

Part 2: No Regret

No regret

Regrets linger mixed in with sadness and sorrow.

Heavy shoulders burdened.

Sadness and sorrow swirl:

sinking, slowly, deeper.

Silently drowning.

Slow motion, everything is still.

Heartbeats fading into the deep  

Revive me…

Revive me, resuscitate me, fill

me with your joy and inner 

peace…

Lift me from the darkness;

dark night of the soul

I rise up

Happy 2022

A New Year, a new day, a new you

Time to start over, no time like the present

to begin a new chapter.

Turn the page, it’s a new day, time for reflection.

Release expectations or pressure.

Make an exception, for any time spent,

no time is wasted, only much lived.

Live to be alive and thrive,

live to love and love some more.

Live to give each other compassion,

make no exception, start with yourself.

Do it today without delay.

It’s time to start over.

Old skin is shed, renewed and healed.

You’ve come so far, be kind to yourself.

All moments are special,

whether they’re good or their bad.

Start that project you keep putting off

ignite those ideas you keep on having.

Believe in yourself

It’s okay to stop right here, and right now

and start over.
