don’t be afraid to show
what you know
what you hold inside

whats kept hidden
suffocates, slowly dies
or worse what you make visible
will be perceived as a lie

only the truth that is burning well
will help you survive
a deeper knowing, a fearless thought
a feeling that consumes alive

say what is on your mind
while you’re still full of life
let go, love, express, ignite
it is definitely worth a try

my love, don’t be shy
no breath comes out of a dead self
not even a sigh!

        Yes, actually I liked all of your posts…

    Reblogged this on Laesia~ and commented:
    Egyrészt mert rímel az Andi barátnőm által ma reggel megosztott sorokra, másrészt meg mert így, ahogy van tökéletes.

    Elnézést azoktól, akik (még) nem tudnak elég jól angolul ahhoz, hogy élvezhessék.

    Dear Himani,

    Thank you for this beautiful poem.

    What a powerful statement…”no breath comes out of a dead self.”

    This poems brings alive that fact that that we may step out of the way of the River, letting her flow as she wills.

    I very much like the art.

    I remember (I believe it was Mawlana Rumi) the teaching, “Be as you are!” Your beautiful poem brings this to mind, with the “are” being a deeper are than just the skin of our heart.

    All good wishes,

    robert

      Thank you dear Robert, for your kind words and beautiful insight 🙂 What a great reminder from Rumi! Being an introvert, I have struggled with communicating my feelings..still a work in progress as you can see from this self-talk 😉 Appreciate you here, as always!

      p.s. you were a little late in stopping by and leaving a comment and believe me, for a moment, my heart skipped a beat 😛

        We all need to step away from here once in a while, Himani. I don’t do it enough. When I get my gardens up and going, you won’t see me as much on here. So, I am enjoying my friends while I can. Gardening is very time consuming. And once in that world, I really don’t want to be here. If you know what I mean. Love, Amyi
