Grateful New Horizons

When is it possible to find a little time

Solely to sit and respectfully listen?

A momentary pause in a breakneck pace

To see our reflection in dew drops glisten

 

We wake to the sound of life in high gear

After a night of fitful meandering dreams

Grinding our way through monotonous days

Continuously stifling glass shattering screams

 

Solitary warriors in a seemingly hopeless battle

Our pride fights alone until fatigue wins the day

Weary minds grasp at our fractured shards of sanity

We are overwrought as more battalions join the fray

 

Needless is the only word for such cerebral bloodshed

When a cease-fire can be close at hand within our mind

Seek out the silent warriors of tribe and spiritual nation

Guardians of such beautiful new horizons we shall find

 

A powerful armada wielding strong protective unity

Will keep us wrapped in a peaceful crystalline energy

 Never again will our negativity abscond with all the light

If we humbly accept the guidance of a newfound synergy

 

We must now find our place to sit in perfect silence

Giving thanks to our spirits, guardians, and guides

Knowing in full faith and complete gratitude

That it is they who help in turning favorable tides

 

A quiet mind’s eye can see into infinity

Only if it is truly grateful for the ability

Do you believe in Angels?

 

Not the kind spoken of in fairytales or myths

I speak of the Angels in direct charge of our spirit

Burdened with the task of seeing us through it all

Guiding us over every self imposed obstacle

Pointing in one direction or the other ever so subtly

Letting us believe that free will led us to where we stand

 

Do you believe in Angels?

 

Those with very specific knowledge of our individual needs

Ones that would go to war with a myriad of Demons

Before letting a dark day turn ominous or oppressive

Angels that have walked alongside us from our beginning

Oftentimes holding our hand or providing a pleasant whisper

Just to make us smile inside and out with comfort and joy

 

Do you believe in Angels?

 

Celestial providers of divine direction straight from above

No proof of their existence but for the warmth of the sun

No voice to give them except for the familiar tones of childhood

Much like the soothing voice of our Mother as dark clouds rolled in

I am convinced that this is exactly who our Angels have always been

Just as I am certain there are now two in direct charge of my path
