Be Brave

She said, “be brave”.

Today she dreams
of what will be
her vibrant heart
beating free.

Her thoughts they shine
beneath the sun
glowing brightly
in everyone.

When it was dark
in pasts gone by
she battled her way
she challenged her why.

She said "be brave"
be the one
who strives to make it
until it's done.

No other path
could take her where
the heavens opened
soul stripped bare.

She gives her mind
to this cause
silence in love
kind self-applause.

She raised her spirit
embraced inner beauty
to achieve her purpose
she made it her duty.

Who is She?…. She is me!!

Be Brave

Sometimes you just have to be brave in the darkest night…..when challenges keep coming….this is your time to be strong, this is your opportunity to shine.  I wrote this poem (below) a few weeks ago…..reflecting, thinking…..putting my self-belief to the test.  I can do it, YOU can do it, WE WILL DO IT!! Here is an original poem from me to YOU.  Just believe……BELIEVE IN YOU.

Who is She?….She is me!!

Sometimes she’s scared,
in the darkest night.
Trembling for hope,
seeking the light.

Questions run riot,
in her mind.
What is she doing?
What will she find?

I think I know her,
I’ve felt her before.
Wrapped in the secrets,
She don’t dare explore.

But I see she is brave,
fighting her war.
Doing her own thing,
What’s it all for?

Her spirit is high,
unusually so.
Because she wins every battle,
Tough tests when she’s low.

I see she is grateful,
in the now.
When all seems lost,
she doesn’t ask how.

For her desires are stronger,
than the fear she feels.
She knows she can win,
positive belief heals.

So she shares her story,
because all can relate.
She frees her happy spirit,
and dances through the gate.

I Am Here

Being Brave

This is a breakthrough day for me today, a day where I put my energy and heart out there to the world.  I say this because I am being brave and courageous and putting myself out there to the Universe in a different way.  I am sharing with you one of the songs I wrote recently for my new Album called “The Becoming of Me”.  This is the first time I have ever sang on video with the intent to demonstrate the power and unfolding of making my dreams come true.  This passion has indeed been locked inside of me for over 30 years and now I am embracing the moment and creating opportunities for myself.  I have no idea where this may lead to, all I know is that it feels right to share with you today.

TRACK 1:  “I AM HERE”  

This song is about the loss of a loved one (my father) and also about having a loved one who lives very far away from you, like in a long distance relationship or family living “Across the Miles”.  It tells the heartfelt story of the strong innner desire to have them so close to you, in that very moment, imagining them so close that they are actually there, then feeling the heartbreak of the reality that they are not there and are never coming back or will not be back for a long time.

Here is the YouTube video of me singing the song in acapella, I do hope you like it.

Here are the song lyrics:

Verse 1

The night is cold tonight
I feel you here
And I just want you now
I want you near
But you are far away
From me
My heart is silenced now
It’s history

 Chorus

And I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

Verse 2

The starry sky so bright
Watches me
I feel your presence here
Let this be
You may be far away
From me
My heart is open now
Set me free

Chorus

So I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

 Encore

I once had hope
That I held you
Tight in my arms
Loving you
I see your smile
I see your eyes
Loving me
Beyond the skies

Chorus

And I am here
For you
I am close
Can you feel me too
Your love
Is all I need
Heaven open your gates
This I plead
Heaven open your gates
This I plead

To Have Faith in Your Heart

What does it really mean to have faith?  Faith is taking the next step without seeing the whole staircase and ‘Faith is the bird that sings to the dawn while it is still dark’ [Tagore].  Beautiful words and very true, without faith in ourselves and without faith in others, where would we be? The following poem is about love and believing in faith, whatever that maybe for you.

Motion pictures, in my mind

Broken heart, love was blind

Where is the stage, that I do seek?

Empty soul, I feel so weak.

Excited thoughts, of what could be

Embraced together, that’s you and me

But now the gap, swells up inside

I let it go, because of pride

My mouth was dry, I lay on the ground

The words got stuck, just silence, no sound

My dreams of white, as you lead the way

Are lost forever, what do I say

What do I do, is there hope at all?

Let me break these chains, kick down the wall

The audience awaits, with tears in their eyes

The curtain is called, to my surprise

There you stand, with a smile on your face

Is this real, as I stand in this place

The universe was listening, the whispers were loud

It brought us together, out of the crowd

To have faith in your heart, to believe and see

That together as one, we were meant to be
