Knowing who we are

@ Marie Kleber

Each experience in life gives us a chance to know who we are. We are learning every day. We may fall. It happens to me many times. And I feel like all the steps before mean nothing. I am like this. Falling hard. And then standing up again. Darkness put aside. No more clouds around. Ready to enjoy every minute of every day. There is no time, then, to ponder on things I can’t change.

The world today does not want to hear that you don’t feel right, at one given time. It says to you that you have nothing to complain about, as long as you have a roof, money and health. So if you do so, be ready to face their wrath.

And if you don’t feel right today, what will become of you tomorrow? You ought to be grateful and let go. That’s simple, isn’t it?

But in truth, far from reality. Cause we are humans. We have emotions. We have to deal with people, our past, our fears, our personality, our dreams and our personal history. We have to compose with all these pieces of our lives every day. Feeling blue once doen’t mean we are on the verge of depression. It does not mean we are lost forever.

It just means that we are ready to face whatever feelings are coming our way. Not saying all is right when it’s not. Not burying our problems. But finding solutions. Before moving on.

The world has its own opinion. Of what is right or wrong.

We know there is no right nor wrong. That makes all the difference!


Unadorned and loved

@ Marie Kléber

You leave me
So many times

Just you
The way you are
The way you are with me
The way you include me into your life

I feel like
A child
Catching the wonders of life
Coming with nothing
But everything to discover

In awe when you put your arms
Around my messy flaws
When you set your eyes
On my secret yearnings

You turned my world upside down
And up again
Showing me the way
To love without the turmoil
Of dependance
Without the craziness
Of becoming somebody else
To fit in a world
Shaped by others

You sccatter pieces of beauty
On the path
Where flowers are growing
Between the weeds of a past
I am learning to let go
To empty my mind
Of the pain caused by
Never being enough for someone

Step by step
You welcome me
In a space free
Where I can be
And still loved

Writing Prompt#1

Emerging from darkness, she is standing in front of the sun. Her heart, her guide. Always, she knows where to go when tides are high. Retiring inside.

Love is as pure as nature. Blooming in spring. And retiring when winter’s dreams are on the way. A time to be and a time to reflect.

She would never betray what she believes in. She is a queen, a women in armor, an authentic version. She stand still as the world is moving to fast speed.

Love is. She can never be defeated.

This is my entry to the Writing Prompt by Manic Sylph.

The best for them

We may want for
Our kids
The best

We may want for
Our Kids
To erase
All our wrong choices

We may want for
Our kids
Better jobs
And greater dreams

But we can’t make them be
Who they are not

We can’t make them change
So they can fit
In the perfect picture
We built
To keep us sane

We can’t ask them to be
Before our world collapsed
Because of our regrets

We can only wish
For them
To find their truth

Your Magic

@Marie Kleber

I made a wish of you
Night moving across a sky
Full of ghosts

You were somewhere
Loving someone
Where would we meet?

You are
Wherever I am
Feeding my soul
Peacing my dreams

I feel you
Finding your way
Bringing my flesh
To life again

My hands moving
The sweetness of my skin
The depth of my desire
My senses burning
The tremendous need
Of our bodies to melt

Your respect
Your love
Magic into motion

I made a wish of you
And I believed
It would come true

Overwhelming feelings

A little thing – that will be nothing for others, or close to nothing – can make me shiver. And then I dive into a space where I can only see my flaws.

I feel like a child, looking at the world for the first time and thinking it’s a magical place. No harm around. I feel safe. And then it happens. And like a child, I feel overwhelmed. My emotions are raw, deep. I feel squeezed between so many feelings.

Like a slap on my face, my balance is at stake. If only there could be somebody to hold me so I won’t be falling. But I crash and I soon feel empty. Like I only deserve what I got. Like I got punished for believing in something that don’t exist.

The world is not always that place where you can be and feel free. Freedom is a beautiful world. But it comes with a price. If you are not aware that you have to pay it, you find yourself lost half-way.

I can’t change the world. I just have to learn to take my place in it. Not that easy. Cause I have a hard time seeing it as it is.
