be YOUR Light!

so easy it is to climb into yourself and give up

crawl back into that cave of self-pity, fill the cup

allowing the voices of the distant past

take up rent and killing you fast

penetrate your being, tearing you down

making you feel the fool and the hopeless clown

refuse to give up the fight

climb back out and be the light

they never understood

they never could

you couldn’t play the game

the stakes  too high for you to claim

you felt the passion deep

for truth you would seek

refuse to give up the fight

climb back out and be the light

maybe not everyone understood you

maybe not everyone could be true

it does not mean that what you valued was wrong

they just were playing a different song

they did not understand the passion that drove you

they did not understand you cared for more than a few

they did not understand you were only expressing an insight

they did not understand you’re being part of the light

they could only shut you down and throw you out

for then they could continue without a doubt

refuse to give up the fight

crawl back out and be the light

if only for a second the truth did shine

it was worth it all to be YOU on the line

somewhere, some day someone will find you

until then, believe in the light and all that is true

    yes and yes, living your life with passion and most importantly look for THE Truth. Living a lie or living believing in lies limits you and holds you back from amazing things you could do. And the worst – lies hold you back from everything you could become if only you would let yourself be and live an authentic life…

    Beautiful, Jane. I do encounter some users who follow me doesn’t have email and wordpress link at their gravatars. How to solve this?


    • I do not know how to solve it but to hope that they see they have to manually set it up. That is WHY I have begun posting the message on the bottom of my posts, in hope that those who do not have a link, establish the link. Arigato for visiting my blog…your presence encourages me to keep writing, Yoshiko!
