Going with the Flow

Amicalola Falls.jpg

Maybe it’s the rush,

Or possibly the glow;

I can not help but deny,

Going with the flow.

I was made to stand,

Or possibly to show.

I can not be like everyone,

Going with the flow.

I must take a leap out;

Step where I don’t know.

I can not make my choices,

Going with the flow.

Be who you’re supposed to be,

Go where you need to go.

You will never find your purpose,

Going with the flow.

Don’t turn back to the crowd.

Carry good seeds you must sew.

Remember, greatness isn’t achieved

Going with the flow.

Living Life with an “Enlarged Heart”

Print

I realize that an enlarged heart is a medical term used to described someone whose heart is pumping too much blood and has a tendency to make it beat too fast. However, on a grand, metaphorical scheme it sounds like a pretty good way to be known.  You ever think about that?  When people think of you, what do they think?  My hope would be that people would look at me and think,  “I wish I had an enlarged heart like her”… By saying that, I mean that I wish people would view me as one who cares for others and leaves open spaces in her heart to care for others.  However, I know that if I do leave those open spaces, I also leave the space to get hurt… which the enlarged heart “effect” would come in handy then (more room to love and heal.) I may be a totally weird and illogical thinker…I just can’t imagine going through life and not making it the best life ever…I love God, I love people and when I breathe my last breath, I will be one satisfied, enlarge-hearted individual.

If Love…

Love

If Love could take your hand,

Would you let it?

If Love could understand,

Would you fret it?

If Love never turned away,

Would you face it?

If Love decided to play,

Would you chase it?

If Love needed a ride,

 Would you take it?

 If Love was honest with you,

 Would you fake it?

If Love decided to hide,

 Would you find it?

 If Love walked by your side,

 Would you mind it?

If Love was sick,

Would you treat it?

If Love was a stranger,

Would you greet it?

If Love was for a season,

Would you risk it?

If Love was but a moment,

Would you miss it?

If Love was a puzzle,

Would you complete it?

If Love hurt you once,

Would you dare to repeat it?
