Freedom.

Calm as the ocean of glass

Blank of ripples

A slumber of the mind

Easy as the earth rotates the sun

I write these words

Without need for purpose

Like life itself

Simply freedom is enough.

Free; A short story.

Anime_Princess_Butterfly_anime_099889_.jpg

She was a princess; and a queen; and a leader

She was stunning and punctual

A poetic goddess with a gleaming smile

Anything and everything at her fingertips

Although she never asked for it

So beautiful and yet so sad and lonely

Its true that money can’t buy you happiness

Nor can beauty define your soul

She wept many nights and days

Wishing she could be swept off her feet

And taken far, far from here

For the constraints of her life were a world of hell

She wanted so badly to see outside these walls

The walls built to protect

Yet desecrated everything sacred

The walls circled her like vultures

Awaiting her death to finally close in

She stayed awake late nights to watch the constellations

Every shooting star a wish

And many tears that followed

One late night on a full moon s

Guards tending to other things

Her royal queen decided she can no longer stay

She fastened bedsheets to a tree

And fell hard on the ground outside the walls

The wind whispered through the trees

As she walked along a path to unknown

And when morning rised

She was on her own

The princess had never felt so alone

So vunerable; but she continued to walk

The sun continued to rise

And the birds began to chirp

Like the birth of a new world

And the sun kissed her skin

And the world finally made sense

That she was finally vulnerable

Finally independant

Alone and on her own

Peace and serenity

It all began.

When I Ran Away With The Night.

In the sweet dark of night;

The blanket of black comfort

Watch over me with eyes of moon and stars

We’ll be going and going and going

So far; from this hole

This time we’re never coming back

And Im ecstatic

I waited my whole life

To disappear into your arms

Its finally time for us to go away

There is no love left

And no reason to stay

I calmly walk on down the lane

Counting my money

Nose runny

Tears of joy;

Streaming down my face

Avoid Both – The Great Middle Way

There are two extremes that are not to be indulged in

by one who has gone forth. Which two?

That which is devoted to sensual pleasure

with reference to sensual objects:

base, vulgar, common, ignoble, unprofitable;

and that which is devoted to self-affliction:

painful, ignoble, unprofitable.

Avoiding both of these extremes,

the Middle Way realized by the Tathagata

—producing vision, producing knowledge—

leads to calm, to direct knowledge, to self-awakening, to liberation.

―Buddha Shakyamuni, Dharmachakrapravartana Sutra

From the moment we are born…. via Under The Blue Door

“From the moment we are born, people tell us that the world is like this and like that, this way, that way. It is natural that – for a certain period of time – we end up believing what we are told. But we must soon push these ideas aside and discover our own way of living reality.” ~Paulo Coelho, Warrior of the Light
