Where is it, My Sweet?

Where is it?
The jubilation?- The wonder?- The exploration?
Where is it?-
The fire in your heart, the light in your eyes?
Where is it?-

That part of you that dares to dream…
to imagine all that you want?

Is it squished? Is it non- existent?
Suppressed by the voice of reason in your head?
Where are you, my love?
Where have you gone?-
That spark, that life within you?
When did you leave yourself?
Come back home… come back
And gently rest in here, the deep….
Fight a little for that stirring within
That knows ‘there’s more….’
Stand up when you are on your knees
And say, ‘I am willing…’
And when your demons arise,
Meet them and learn from them.
Dare to know yourself deeply
To better feel when outdated
Ways dictate your life and lead to suffocation-
Squeezing the life out of you….
Leading to swallowing deep truths,
Self sabotage, doubt and lack of confidence…
Staying small, ¬†and existing to live only for others…
When here you are, a vibrant spark-
Don’t let the ways of the world dull it.
Live, my sweet…. Live your life with spark and fire.
