Here I will share my love of story telling…sit back and enjoy. Though be warned…some of them are not what you think they are going to be!

Know your place.

 

Below is my latest ditty, written over the last week or so after realising my place in anothers life. #SoWhat #itaintovertillitsover 

 

Know your place . ..

Fair weather friend

Know your place…

Compliant friend

Know your place…

Don’t ever disagree  with me friend

Know  your place…

Unsullied waters and resonable friend

Know your place…

Always forgiving and giving  friend

Know  your fucking  place. ..

Never question me friend

Know your place . . . 

‘Yes mam’ me friend

Know your place…

For once you stand up to me

Challenge my behavior 

Call me out on my drama 

I’m going to drop you like you never existed . ..cos thats what I do

To those who forget their fair weather  place.

So What!

“If you say: “So what?” to their face, they are powerless.” – Salma Hayek

 

IT IS.

The following is a poem I wrote a long time ago, it reverberates within me strongly at the moment witnessing what is happening at Standing Rock Indian Reservation.  

I

IT IS

THE SUBTLY OF NEGATING AND QUIET ERODING,

IT IS 

NOT THE BLACK AND WHITE,

IT IS 

THE BLINDING GREY  TO BE FEARED.

 


 

 IT IS

THE SHADOW OF COMPLIANCE,

IT IS

THE ENTWINING OF BELIEF,

IT IS

THE DARKENING OF UNIQUENESS.


 

IT IS

THE MIND GAMES OF ’NORMALITY’,

IT IS

THE DEATH OF  NATIONS,

IT IS

IGNORANCE BREEDING SUSPICION.


 

IT IS

SLY  ANNIHILATION,

IT IS

FEAR FILLED  INTERLOPERS,

IT IS

ASPHYXIATING ALL WITH A WAISCU  MINDSET.


 

IT IS

INSIDIOUSLY INSTIGATING  THE  SCHISM OF INDEPENDENCE,

IT IS

INVADING, PERVADING,OVERWHELMING ALL,

IT IS

THE ENDING IF ABSORBED.


 

IT IS

THE  ERADICATION OF LIFEWAY  AND INTERCONNECTEDNESS,

IT IS

THE ALONENESS OF SELF RELIANCE THAT FRACTURES,

IT IS

THE ‘LITTLE DEATHS’ THAT KILL THE SOUL.


 

                                                        II

 

 IT IS

THE CONNECTEDNESS THAT WILL BREAK THE STRANGLEHOLD,

 IT IS

THE OPENNESS OF HONESTY THAT IS CORRUPTIONS ENEMY,

IT IS

THE KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTH THAT FREES THE PRISONER.


 

 IT IS

THE PURENESS OF HEART THAT ENLIVENS,

IT IS

THE INTANGIBLE AND TANGIBLE,

IT IS

THE RESOLVE TO BE  HEART  TRUE.


                            

IT IS

THE SOUL’S BREATH,

IT IS

THE SPIRIT SPEAKING,

IT IS

THE INNATE KNOWING.


 

 IT IS

THE BEGINNINGS,

IT IS

THE ENDINGS,

IT IS

THE BELIEVING.


 

IT IS

UNDERSTANDING THAT COMES FROM THE SILENCE,

IT IS

REACHING DEEP INSIDE AND EMBRACING OF IT,

IT IS

THAT CLARITY OF VOICE HEARD.


 

IT IS

REACHING FORTH TO ENFOLD,

IT IS

THE INTERDEPENDENCE OF  COMPASSION,

IT IS

THE FEARLESS FREEDOM.


 

IT IS

THE FATHOMED DEPTHS,

IT IS

THE LIFEWAY OF BEING,

IT IS 

THE INTERTWINING  OF ALL.


 

IT IS

THE HUMANENESS OF LIVING,

IT IS

THE BEAUTY OF TRUTH,

IT IS

THE UGLINESS OF LIE.


 

IT IS

OVERCOMING  INSURMOUNTABLE ODDS,

IT IS

EARS COMPREHENDING THAT WHICH IS UNSPOKEN,

IT IS

WORDS SEEN THROUGH EYES UNBLINDED.


 

IT IS

TOUCH, SPEAKING MORE THAN THOUSAND WORDS,

IT IS

THE QUIET REALITY OF HUMBLENESS AND WISDOM,

IT IS

INTERCONNECTEDNESS MENDING THAT WHICH WAS BROKEN.


                           

IT IS

THE INTERDEPENDENCE  OF BEING ONE THAT HEALS AND FORGIVES,

IT IS

IN THE REMEMBERING, THAT REMEDIES AND RESTORES.

IT IS

LOVING UNCONDITIONALLY WITH HEARTS STRONG AND TRUE.

 

 

 

Its Time!

“From where you sit, it may seem that certain people should know better. People are who they are and do what they do whether or not you like it or agree with them. We each have different lessons to learn. We each take a different path to our lessons.” ~ Iyanla Vanzant

So true, we each walk our own path. Sometimes, it is completely alone. Often though, they journey alongside us for a time.  Teaching us, loving us, challenging us, hindering or stopping us for a time.  Our mission is to keep moving though…we are significant!

How that significance plays out depends on who we know we are inside,  That when we reflect it outside we bring a depth of personality/character that changes all who come in contact with us.  We choose! No one else has that right or power over us unless we give it to them.

How many times in my childhood….how many times in YOUR childhood when we did not have a say in what was said or done to us, were we so diminished, demoralised and burdened by  other peoples  view of who we should be?

I struggled with this, my perception of who I knew I was and who I was told I was could have enslaved me in such a negative way.  I chose to stand alone and be different, not part of the ‘in crowd’ and it was lonely, hard slog and behind my smile a heart aching to be loved for me and accepting that some people never would. What a revelation! It  was that which gave me the courage to just be me, I’m ok, a strong woman who is a survivor  but also a resolution to always be true to myself.  That is the essence of true freedom!

When you go against who you are…it causes such an unease to your Spirit…It WILL destroy you and you will become a shadow of someone elses creating.

Who did you see as a child? What dream was given you? Are you living it? If not…Why?

Remember that people will reflect back who they see themselves to be on the inside, they will not all have chosen to be significant and so will be threatened by you. Shine anyway! Recognize those ‘words of advice’  and weigh them thoroughly before accepting them as your truth.

I have learned to love them even though I don’t agree with them.  That is the key. To love and always show kindness to all.  I’m not perfect, I have my times of deep hurting but I have also learned to not carry/accept others emotional wounds/scars as my own. Learn from them…yes  BUT do not allow yourself to be a dumping ground.

#StandStrong and become all you know in your heart, in your core self that you are meant to be.  I believe in you!  I ❤ You.

#Dream #Create #Be
