An Inspired Poem: Words Create Worlds


Words create worlds, from nothingness, they bring

A universe of meaning with each syllable they sing

They conjure up images, both vivid and clear

And transport us to places far and near

With a word, we can inspire, and light up a flame

We can comfort the weary and heal those in pain

We can make sense of the chaos, and find order in the fray

And turn darkness to light with just what we say

Words build bridges between hearts and minds

They help us connect across cultural divides

Awareness is the Greatest Agent of Change

An Inspired Poem: Tales from The Campfire


Gather 'round the virtual campfire,

Let's share our tales tonight,

Of journeys, struggles, and desires,

And the sparks that gave us light.

In this human, humble space.

Some of us may come in search

Of guidance, hope, or peace,

While others offer a listening …

An Inspired Poem: Breath of Renewal


Breathe in, breathe out, the rhythm of life

Inhale the future, exhale the strife

With each breath, a chance to renew

To let go of what no longer serves you

The past is gone, a memory to cherish

But holding on too tight can make you perish

The future awaits, it's almost here

Inhale the possibilities, exhale the doubt

Let go of the worries that make you devout

Breathe in love, breathe out hate

The present moment is yours to create

With every breath, a …
