Be your own superhero…

superheroes-costumes

Growing up I thought that it was be awesome if I could fly, walk through walls, change the weather, etc. I wanted to be a magical being with superpowers. I would defend the world, one villain at a time. How awesome would it be to like one of the X-Men or maybe the Avengers perhaps?

I have come to see now that all you need to do to be a superhero is to lend a helping hand, be a good friend, treat the world with kindness, and touch people’s hearts. And well hey, sometimes I think just getting out of bed and tackling the day ahead is a superpower. 😉

Many think, “I’m just one person, what can I really do?” But all it takes is one person, a spark to change things. So be that spark, set things ablaze. Go be that superhero, though many of them who wear masks….don’t be afraid to show the world who you really are.

A Mother’s Heart

Image

From the very beginning, something changes within

Feelings & emotions new & difficult to understand begin

As a tiny life begins to grow within, you begin to see

It’s not just about you anymore, it’s now mainly about that little baby

 

As your body changes & your hormones rage out of control

You still know that this life inside you is now a part of your soul

Rough nights, so little sleep, cravings, and wait that’s just the beginning

As the end draws near, your head is just spinning

 

The awaited day inches ever closer & then it finally arrives

As the pain takes over, you begin to wonder how you’ll survive

For some it’s just a few hours & for some, labor goes on for days

And then comes that moment that completely takes your breath away

 

After the doctor has done a quick look over & cleaned up your little one

Your baby is placed into your arms & now you see who has your heart won

Looking upon an angel’s face, touching their tiny hands & ever so little feet

Vowing from that moment on that you’ll protect them from all dangers they will meet

 

As they grow, each phase presents great challenges & wondrous blessings

There are moments when you want to scream, but moments too that make you sing

From the late night feedings to the terrible twos, and beyond

You also remember their first baseball game & helping them get ready for prom

 

It doesn’t matter whether your child is two or fourty-two

You know in your heart that there’s nothing you wouldn’t do

To see your son or daughter healthy, successful, & happy

The love within that you feel for them is easy for all to see

 

How truly magnificent it is that someone so small can mean so much

That teaches you the meaning of unconditional love from the very first touch

And while it’s never really easy to one day let them make their own fresh start

You know that no matter the distance, they’ll always know they’re in their mother’s heart

A Request From a Sensitive Heart

Image

When watching a movie I have seen so many times

I still cry when it gets to the emotional scenes

It was only a harmless joke, so my friend did say

Yet it still got to me in such a profound way

 

I often hear phrases like, “Why does that bother you so much?”

And another common one is, “Don’t take things so seriously.”

Berated for wearing my heart on my sleeve is a common occurrence

It’d be nice if now & then people instead offered respect & reassurance

 

I’m not necessarily asking you to walk on eggshells around me

My skin isn’t that unbelievably thin, I am not as fragile as I seem

So don’t hold the truth from me because you think it’s more than I can take

Highly sensitive I might be, but know this tender heart of mine won’t break

 

I just ask that if I take something more to heart than you might

To not put me down, to not sit there & call me weak

My sensitive nature isn’t really a bad thing after all

It helps me help others, once they’re ready to break down their wall

 

My compassionate nature & sensitivity go hand in hand

I am not ashamed of that, nor of who I am

We’re all made the way we were meant to be

So please stop trying to toughen my skin, stop trying to change me

Voices That Won’t Win

The voices inside my head have got me so paranoid

Leaving me feeling quite annoyed

I wish that I knew how to silence them for good

Oh how I would if I could

 

Sometimes the things they say frighten me

Twisting everything that I see

Other times they tell me I’ll fail at something I want to do

“Oh girl, why do you try? You surely haven’t got a clue.”

 

Sometimes they feed my anger, egging me on

Telling me to do bad things, making me their pawn

Now most times I don’t give in

I have sworn not to let them win

 

Every now and then, they comfort me like a dear friend

Each insecurity, they find a way to mend

I often feel so torn inside

In whom can I truly confide?

 

Many would say I am a freak

I fear there’s no one to give me the solace I seek

I wish these voices within never existed

They leave me feeling so torn apart and twisted

 

Within the darkness inside, there is one light

One that helps me get some sleep at night

When I pray to God up above

He conquers the voices with his love

 

Now and then I forget to seek His hand

Thinking that alone I can make a stand

Then the voices pull me into waters deep

Gnawing at my soul, causing me to weep

 

I wonder at times if this will ever end

God, your help please send

Don’t leave them for me to conquer on my own

“Oh child, don’t you know, you’re never alone.”

 

Some days are a difficult for me, I must admit

Though overall I am usually able to keep my wit

I tell this to you all now because I’m no longer ashamed

To tell you about these voices within that can’t be named

 

They don’t define me

That is something I finally see

I hope you can see that’s true

Let my heart show you with the things that I do

Dance to the music that life creates….

Given a writing challenge, I decided to be one to accept and this challenge came from http://nostroviawriting.wordpress.com/2013/02/13/writing-prompts-and-blog-promotion-poetry-writing/ Check it out, would love to see what you have to say!!! 🙂

One can use many analogies to describe life. It can be compared to art, a book, nature, food, and in this case, music. Music is a very important part of my life. I feel it resonating, echoing in my soul. I try to let it pour from within my being and let it spill out into the world for all to see, to hear. My life’s song has been a bittersweet symphony, full of highs and lows. If you listen closely, you might just be able to hear it. I feel it is important to quiet your mind and take a good listen or other noises might get in the way of what’s being sung.

Some can’t hear the music, but I feel we all have a song within our hearts, beating our own beat. It should never be the exact same melody as another’s. We’re all unique, perhaps some of our tales are like that of people we come across, but the song in its entirety will not match another. Some struggle to find their song, to know their own identity. I have been lost before, wondering who I was, where I was headed, what I wanted to do. It’s a hard thing to live with, trying to figure out who you are. If one stops listening to others, what they say we should think, how we should feel, what we should do, and who we should be and become…it then becomes easier to hear what’s going on inside our own minds.

Within our minds is the rational and thinking side and also the emotional and feeling side, otherwise known as our “heart”. Getting the two sides to be on the same page is difficult to say the least, but it is possible. I tend to follow my emotional and feeling side more often, but sometimes the rational and thinking side takes over. When the two butt heads, it can be a struggle. I have over the years found a way to deal with the two siblings fighting within me. I decided to never again lose myself within myself. I wanted to know my song, feel it as it changed. As I grow, it flows in different directions. Bright and vivid colors swirl within the melodies and harmonies, taking one to not just a place of sound, but one of sight as well. I want one to hear my song, but see it and feel it too.

So, close your eyes. Quiet yourself from all the noises that surround you, even your own whirling thoughts and emotions. Let your senses take over. What do you hear within yourself? Can you feel your song beating within your heart, pulsing within your veins? Will you share it with others? Will you share it with me? Will you listen to my song? I don’t hide it from anyone, so join me if you’re brave enough. 🙂
