Let’s get going,
Don’t you stop.
Keep your head up,
Beep beep bop.
See the goal,
In your eyes.
Feel and believe,
It’s your surprise.
So soldier on,
Break through it all.
Imagine your life.
Over the brick wall.
At the rainbow’s end,
Celebrate your glory,
This is your life,
This is your story.
Let’s get going my friends, you and me, let’s get going today!!
Expect the unexpected in life, it can shoot you down and leave you in the gutter of despair. I want to tell you something, because I’ve been there and there is always hope, there is always faith and I want you to believe that if you’re feeling like that right now, hold onto the truth of your heart. Work on improving the most important relationship in your life first and that is the relationship with yourself – be your own best friend. I like to pray when I’m feeling like this, so I made up this prayer to share with you in the hope that it may help you during tough times. Prayer truly works for me, I believe and know this and I hope that it works for you too. Lots of love to you today and always, Clarabelle.
Prayer of Courage of Strength
I say this prayer, from the bottom of my heart. And I ask you to help me to stay strong in this time of need. Please help me to overcome these difficult challenges, And become a better person from the lessons therein. Help me to build a loving and empowering relationship with myself, So that I can turn my life around for the better. Give me the courage and strength to forgive and to be forgiven. Let me see the open door in the darkest night Let my heart grow with true love, faith and hope. And may my inner light shine and guide me to all good. I pray that I raise my self belief in my own capabilities and potential. And may this lead me into a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. Thank you for answering my prayer.
The tide is turning, EVERYTHING is changing for the better, 2014 welcomes you with open arms, get ready to rock ‘n roll and take the challenge on…..success is on the horizon, I feel it for you, BELIEVING is seeing, make sure you do that. This next poem is inspired by just that and it is for YOU. Love Clarabelle.
YOU Are Gold
In every challenge, there’s potential in you. In every thought, in all you do.
Believe the hype, believe it’s true. You are special, So loved through and through.
A broken heart, drowning in the sea. Mind swirling around, Set yourself free.
As the high winds howl, like a wolf in the night. Look for the stars, They are your guiding light.
When you are the bottom, the only way is up. When shattered dreams, feel heavy in your cup.
But one year on, You’ll look back on this day. Success was in the failure, because you found your way.
The path of life, never goes straight. One day lost in the maze, One day finding the gate.
The way out is clear, you can’t see it with your eyes. It’s from deep within your heart, Its whispers are wise.
The people on your road, are here for a reason. Some for a lifetime, some just for a season.
But remember this, YOU are gold. A precious stone, No one can mold.
So when darkness falls, and you have no light. Remember your heart, will always shine bright.
Like an angel in the wind, Floating by your side. She appears in many people, Being your silent guide.
All of my poetry is based on my life experiences, some amazing ones and some really challenging ones. This next poem was written by me from a challenging time in my life. I didn’t realise it at the time, but I know now, that the pain I was feeling, was the releasing of negative energy that was not serving me well. I call this poem, my breakthrough poem, the reason being is that I opened up my heart and asked for help whilst feeling in such a vulnerable state of mind. I remember this experience so very clearly, it was 3am and I couldn’t sleep, I felt really tearful…..I asked for help and I truly believe I got it – from myself. This poem is a true reflection of that night, I believe some kind of inner miracle happened and I know the power of the universe was listening to me. I share this very personal poem with you, in the hope that if you are facing a similar tough experience, it will give you faith and knowing that your current difficult experience will gradually pass with time and maybe just maybe the first step to that happening is accepting the situation for what it is and asking for help. I believe that help will come from within, for you can truly help yourself and turn any negative situation around. May you take courage and strength from these words, “The next message you need is always right where you are.” (Ram Das) and I feel my true life experience told in this next poem proves that. Stay strong, you can do it!! Much love to you today, Clarabelle.
It was 3am, I just couldn’t sleep;
With tears in my eyes, the message came deep.
I was all alone and I repeated out loud;
“Help me, Help me”, I’m lost in the crowd.
Give me a sign, that you hear my cry;
I don’t know what to do, or what to try.
A few hours passed by, but nothing came my way;
I felt abandoned, and full of dismay.
When morning did come, I searched all around;
Give me a signal, then a book beside my bed I found.
I had been clearing out cupboards, the night before;
And this book fell out, and onto the floor.
Little did I know, for in my time of need;
The answer was there in advance, disguised in this good deed.
I picked up the book, and to my surprise;
The answer was there, in front of my eyes.
“Help is here if you need it” – words marked in bold;
Someone was listening, this answer they told.
I smiled inside, for I knew what to do;
The fact that I asked for help, was the start of mybreakthrough.
That day I found comfort, for the universe heard my plea;
When someone close to us dies, often prayer can help us to see through each day until we become strong again and are ready to face the world. I wrote this prayer after hearing about the loss of a friend’s loved one, I hope its sentiment brings strength to anyone who is going through this deep sadness at this time in their life. Love to you Clarabelle.
Prayer for the Loss of a Loved One
I pray that my loved one, is now held gently in your loving arms.
May their soul now be free and abundant with love and light.
Let their happy loving spirit, shine and guide us here on earth.
I pray that my close family and friends, remain strong for each other.
May we continue to be blessed with your loving presence, every moment of every day.
To all you creative writers out there, who share your passion with the world, this next poem is for you. Inspired by creative flow, written in creative flow. Wishing you all a day full of creativity and imagination. Lots of love Clarabelle
Passion Keeps You Strong
To all my fellow bloggers, passion keeps you strong;
Expressions from your heart, that’s where you belong.
Creativity flows, when your soul talks to you;
Mesmerized in the moment, defining what you do.
I hear your calling, I feel it in your words;
The writing is on the wall, beneath the flight of birds.
Magic comes from you, you’re mystical for sure;
Your posts are like gold dust, to your audience they are so pure.

My brother was made redundant from his job the other day and with my Human Resources background I have been offering him some very much needed support. I know that he doesn’t feel like being positive about the situation right now, and I fully understand it, but I hope, through time, he will realise the opportunities that he can now create for himself. I am now reminded of this quote, “When one door closes another one opens; but we often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” (Alexander Graham Bell). This next poem is inspired by this situation and I hope that it instills some hope and encouragement for you and anyone you know who is going through a similar experience. Raise your thinking to a higher level and build up your courage and confidence to help you achieve what you want in life. Lots of love Clarabelle
