Now Bloom! 🔊


You ask how I am

I tell you I’m broken

You wish I had lied

You don’t like the broken

So you want to fix me

But you’re too busy running

Running for perfect

You don’t want imperfect

So you should really fix me

But you can’t, you don’t see me

You’re too busy dying

Dying to heal

Green smoothie in one hand

Your thoughts in the other

No hand free for helping

And now you feel guilty!

You tell me you’re busy…

I exhaust you.

“It’s the full moon”

You say

As if that changes anything

All I said

was that I’m broken

The rest was in YOUR head!

I just want you to see me, and know there is nothing to fix!

I just want you to feel me, and ask what I need!

Because for some reason

Your words are important to me

You’re me

I am you

We are whole

We are broken

Don’t fix me

Just love me

Just see me in pieces

Broken by life

And inside there’s a flower

Don’t fix me

I’m perfect!

Don’t close what’s been opened!

You’re me

And you’re broken

You’re perfectly broken

Now bloom!

The Art of Fighting and Forgiving 🔊


yesterday we had a fight
I screamed at you that I love you, but I don’t like you lately
we have VALUES!!!
what happened to those?!?
what happened to integrity?!?

I cried as you tried to explain yourself
because I know the stories, too
and yes it’s been hard
but still, we have VALUES!!!
who are we if we allow them to be compromised?!?
regardless of what happens in our life

I gave you a hard time
I told you my disappointment, my anger, my sadness, my frustration
and you took it like a man
you let me rant until I was done
and then you held me
and we forgave each other and promised to do better
to be honest
to be intentional
to live our values
to trust each other

yesterday we had a fight
and today
what was broken is whole
what was shattered is one
what was out of alignment is balanced in the centre

the clingy past has let go of its grip
the present is calm and loving
the future inviting with its shimmering light
and I am filled with gratitude
that we have learned the art of fighting and forgiving

Myself and I

the most important relationship
the most important love


The Three Guardians Of The Heart 🔊


You tell her that she’s guarded
She nods and says “I know!”
You tell her she should drop that guard
“Just have some fun, let go!”

Your comment makes her feel like
her cautiousness is wrong
She blames herself for letting
her three guardians come along

⚔️  ⚔️  ⚔️

Yes, three men guard a female heart
Ensure that it is free
Protect it from all enemies
and that’s how it should be!

The first one is her bodyguard
That big guy you can see
His arm’s around her shoulders
He’d hurt you if need be

The next one is her strategist
Her future’s in his hand
He kneels there on her left hand side
drawing battles in the sand

The third one stands behind her
One never sees his face
He whispers words like passion, joy,
connection, freedom, grace

They’re warriors, they’re spirits
They help her find her way
They only want what’s best for her
and if that’s fun, well hey!

But you ask of her to ditch them!
You say they keep her closed
But if you’d tried to look for it
you’d known her heart’s exposed

There’s nothing closed, these guards will bless
whoever dares to try
to touch her heart with true intent
But you don’t have that, why?

⚔️  ⚔️  ⚔️

Oh little boys of summer town
You talk of truth and light
You want the world a better place
You ask why people fight

And then you play your games, which feed
insecurity and fear
How shall we fill this world with trust
if we can’t do it here!

No, you think that you must trick her,
pretend, to get your way
I tell you, honesty and trust
will get you further, any day!

⚔️  ⚔️  ⚔️

Oh little boys of summer town
when will you ever learn
You’re all the same, too scared to show
your true intent and earn

the trust of those three warriors
that guard the female heart
No, you tell her that she’s safe without,
then leave her in the dark!

You do it out of fear
because you too have let them go!
A man with warriors by his side
would never treat her so

Yes, little boys of summer town
grow up and be those men
that earn your women’s trust and help
their guardians in again
