By Toni O’Keeffe
We need not look beyond our own lives, our own hearts, our own curious souls to find the answers.
We are the echos of wisdom left behind by all those that came before us.
We are the foot prints leading towards greater understand of all that is.
We are the songs that ignite passion, tears and dance.
We are the deep whispers that exhale in the night guiding each other home.
We are the chapters and
the puzzle pieces in each others lives.
We are raindrops, heartache and the cover that shelters one another from life’s storms.
We are mountains, forests, oceans, and the wide open spaces that call us to explore.
We are fear, joy, unsettled thoughts and lies. We are the peace, the war and injustice that surrounds us.
We are the colours of our own lives, the magic, the madness and the miracles. We are all the things we seek.
We are the masterpiece we crave to create.
Look inwards my dear ones, that is where you will find the answers to all questions, all pain, all life.
I am the rhythm and the words that will set you and I free.
We are the poetry
