we are all born with a divine fire in us. our effort should be to give wings to this fire.


Why is there moonlight

in the darkest nights

there is moonlight

In the brightest days

there is sunlight

but why am I missing my moonlight

the harsh reality

the cold stares

the dark mind numbing truth

in it all I am lost

in the dark 

an orphan

a loner

a child

alone wishing

upon a star

for a lighted path

out of the darkness

a moon rises

stars surround it

and others praise it

but I

I follow it

as it warms my heart

and blesses me

with a home

calling me forth 

and making sure

I am protected

This is my

moonlight


The author's comments:

This is a reference to God, I use this to  show that I found God and he found me, as the moon/sun is referenced as God. This is a story of my travels and my pain and how God took me in as a parent does a child.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

You got this girlfriend.
