This Stargazing Youth

As I look upwards
Orion’s belt reminds me
This stargazing youth

So many memories, laying in the grass, eyes skyward, my dreams moving at lightspeed. 


Fearing to Launch

A challenge of mine
As with so many others
Launch my idea

I, for one, find it hard to actually take my ideas, my dreams live. The action of making it real has risk, the chance of failure. Lately, though, I’ve read so very much about the value of failure. I need to work at controlling those fears, ensuring I’m effective and moving forward with accomplishing my dreams.

Abandoning All We Are

Abandon all that we are
So we can become
All that we might be 

I see myself trapped by my past, by the barriers erected from fear, insecurity and doubt. “Grow past them…” I counsel myself. “Push past them. They are but vapor, illusion, less real than the dreams. Dreams create! So I shall focus on them.
