poem about love and faith


Like Scenes
Each with a strength
Holding our tree of life.
Stacked up against nature
One body that’s all we have
Standing at the bottom
Looking up the ladder
Waiting on that first step
One by one, to the top
Climbing each stone
Conquering your inner fears
Heart is the purest power
The air gets clearer
Sweet daring dreams
Your best ingredient
To your tree … of life.

Working on a summer time
In better frame of mind
Catching every single episode
Floating about in a time forgotten
Don’t miss it now, bounded by
That one fear in your climb
It’s what sweetens the drop
Circling in an unknown place
Barking alone on your climb
To your house of fearlessness
Now, in your adventure learning
There’s more in you to believe.

There are no pictures to take
This view, up here is your place
Redesign it for you created the climb
Realizing that each stone was taken
Below your feet was the best thing to happen
Falling undertook strength of the inner fear
Look back at it thankfully and laugh
The sky’s blue and who knew
It was as easy as the sun setting
The clouds are white and what a sight
Never again will there be a better place
Now let life fade as you take on a new way.
