I got more bold
and more careless of cold

Built upon the losses
of all we tried and failed
The loss turned into learning
and that’s how we prevailed

I’ve made the mistake
and suffered the price
Now let the guilt go
or pay for it twice

Persist through the droughts
Move forward and know
Where dry desert ends
Green grasses grow

Has a book ever stopped you in your tracks and changed the direction of your thoughts thereafter? One mind-changing moment for me came from the book…

Looking back at the loss
While wearing the bruise
Am I victim or hero
…with my actions I choose

Either conform
into what you can see
Or transform
into what you can be

Feedback is a diamond
freshly from the earth
Hard to see the sparkle
in that state
Yet polish off the edges…

Grasping for love
propels it away
Giving with love
attracts it to stay
