The Path

I am always looking for ways to express myself.  It’s a huge part of my M.U.D. life.  It’s a way for me to get out of my head.  Expressing yourself artistically is full of Mindful, Unique, Decisions and finding what works for you in that moment.  Whether it’s expressing myself through writing, poetry, art, music… it’s all different ways for me to get out in a positive way how I am feeling.  It’s a way to share those feelings.  It’s a way to connect.

Last night I wrote this poem.  It’s an interesting poem because, after I wrote it, I realized it was almost like two different mindsets being merged together.  It starts off with me acknowledging the hopelessness and darkness I have been experiencing lately, but somehow, in-between, it merges into a positive outlook where everything will be ok.  It’s almost as if I am talking myself off the ledge.

I didn’t mean to write it this way.  I had no intention of how this poem would be.  It just happened.  And that’s what I love about art.  It’s organic.  And sometimes it can help you realize things you hadn’t realized before.  This poem just reinforces to me how I look at life, that although things might get dark and stormy, there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel.  There is always hope.

The Path

I can’t keep pretending

That I am ok

When inside I’m always

Doubting my way.

I can’t keep on smiling

When all I want to do is cry

I can’t stop asking questions

To find the reason why.

And some days I find

My feet firmly planted

On the ground,

And other days

My head is in the clouds

And I’m waiting to be found.

Somewhere, somehow

I might have lost my way

But I’m not giving up,

No definitely not today.

Because I will

Keep on searching

And keep on finding

Why things are the way they are,

And I’ll never stop wondering

And discovering

And I’ll find my dreams aren’t that far.

Life is worth living

Even through the darkest days

So I will keep on following this

Unknown path

And eventually

I will find my way.
