Sometimes it’s right to bend & give.
Other times it seems good to defend (maybe):
Be strong but not rigid, soft but not smushed.
Love yourself when your buttons are pushed!
The truth is out. The Muse is in.
If you are lost, remember your friend–
Inside your heart, waiting for you
Just show up and love; she’ll pass you a clue.
A little spontaneous blurb of Truth
Will appear to you while pondering the…
Roof of your head, the wisdom inside:
How to live life with nothing to hide…
C’mon now–Get going! USE this sweet chance:
Jump up and create. Sing! Dance!
Open your heart, spread joy to those friends
Who turn to you when needing a mend.
Look IN here. Look UP! Your own love will heal
That wound in your SELF you’re afraid to feel.
Thank goodness, this GIFT! … Bless the Muse in me…
Without her, I’m simply
………………………. . . . Asleep in the Dream!
(I wrote this poem a few months ago, but I think of it often. It came to me kind of “all at once” as many of my poems do. I was thinking about what a gift creativity or “The Muse” is in life and especially in the growth-and-healing process. She really can help us find BALANCE. And also remind us that love, especially for one’s self, is the key to whole game…)
