If I can offer you any piece of advice it would be this:
Live now. Life is too damn short to simply wish things were different.

This poem was created from a fantastic day of texting word associations back and forth with a dear friend of mine.  The words are listed at the top with the poem created from the words below.  Thank you for the inspiration jm :)

Cloud, Lavender, Breeze, Ease, Trees, Swing, Free, Surrender, Release, Receive, Believe, Commit, Fear, Time, Mind, Find, Strength, Wisdom, Truth, Exposed, Vulnerable, Silence, Death, Peace, Friends, Home

clouds of broken promises
fill my skies
mimicking the tears
that fill my eyes
laves of lavender scents
swim with ease
like a cool breeze between my joints
bending and breaking like branches
of trees 
just to make a point

to swing free
truly free in what we’ll call
this tree of life
it will take far more than surrender….
it takes surrendering the release
of all that you give and receive…
of all that you believe

to be free
to the core
through so much more
than how you appear
you must submit
take the time
and face the fear
free your mind
before you find
strength that is born through the wisdom
through the years
seek the truth
inside you
demand the hidden become exposed
become vulnerable
become sincere

silence and solitude through mind
and soul
can create life from death
peace from war
a circle of love
in the form of friends
the very place…
if lucky enough….
you will call home
in the end
