“fear” – [random thoughts by G.D. Grace]

You glare at me through a dismissive gaze, as if you have triumphed over me and my inadequacies, like you know me on some personal level.

Disquised as truth you size me up as though I were the most basic equasion, less than one and empty as zero.

From an underlying angle, you remind me of every uncertainty that has ever dared stand between me, my passion, and all my reasons for keeping the faith.

I suppose you’ll always try testing my courage, because it’s what you do.

Fear.

(Random thoughts by g.d.grace)

“Light” – a poem of deliverance by Author G D Grace

Light…

While immersed deeply in the darkness we cried out to you, praying for deliverance

during that relentless cycle of years, and there were several moments when we tried

giving up, yet we were compelled to stagger on…

Broken…

Doubtful…

Weary…

Insecure…

Uncertain…

About how…

Not knowing when…

Without any direction of where

Desperately clinging to what if….

And then one day our cries were heard and our tears were dried…

And the heavy weight of burden was lifted.

We emerged resound with peace and rich with wisdom,

For we had overcome by faith and did proceed triumphant. ~GD

“..but I do know the difference…” (reflections of a writer) GD

I don’t know it all. I never professed to knowing it all, but I do know the difference between bigotry and hate. I will never let anyone dictate to me who is and who isn’t relevant. I am so glad I am able to see the beauty in all cultures and races. I do not fear difference, but I do fear guns, bombs, and mindless killings. In my heart, all I can see is how much more prosperous this world with be if everyone lived their own lives and stopped trying to cram their beliefs down the throats of others. And these are the…

“Curious & Confused” written by Author G . D. Grace

Yours…

Sweet without asking for  more…

Than I can give

Closer to complete

Regardless of how I looked…

In spite of the mistakes I made

Real without critique

Minus judgements

Lighter than the air breathed

You entered the realm of me

Afraid to reveal your true self

So afraid of what they whispered

Too weak to stand on your own

You hated me because I knew

As if I were the reason why…

Blaming me for what had been revealed

Dismissing those times we shared

As if they didn’t exist

And I took it without a challenge

Because as long as I knew

Why should it matter…

And when we came back together

We were strangers

Looking at each other differently

As if to forget

But that was your reaction

I just looked at you bewildered

Wondering why you buckled

Puzzled by why it even mattered

And where are we right now?

So close to done

I sit across from you

I see

I observe

I notice

I play the game too

Why bother when denial infects you

I was the scapegoat

It was all on me

You were an unwilling participant

Yelling and spewing deception

For probing ears

As if it could erase what I saw

Like it could void the role you played in this

There was no reluctance

There was no resistance

You watched my eyes amused

We went back and fourth for days

Teasing and taunting for weeks

Suppressing our desires for months

And here we are years later

Playing the same games

With different rules

I don’t hate you

No

I adapted

Like I’ve always done

But lately I’ve grown tired

Weary from your show

Burnt out from watching you

Ignore

Resist

Look past

Look to the left

Then to the right

Catching that stolen glance

The whole charade

Frustration is full

I’m geared to walk

Leave you here

Alone in this space

Right where I found you

Curious and confused

Hoping you’d meet

Someone like me

Back to square one

I’ve traveled as far as I can

With you

It was

Almost

But now

It’s a done deal

I had to get to this place

For whatever reason I had to

Go this far

Yes…

Perhaps one day I’ll understand but for now…

I’m gone.

“Spirit” written by Author G. D. Grace

Recognize…

Comprehend…

Analyze…

Understand…

Who…

What…

Why…

See it for what is…

Accept it as nothing more…

Learn but lightly grasp…

Dwell but depart fast…

Rise with every fall…

Dissect the vast and small…

Proceed forward in spite of pain…

Find solace in every minute gained…

Emerge stronger from lowest low…

Progressive strides align with go…

On wisdom’s wall outline your worth…

Translate your purpose while here on earth…

Be not afraid to see outside…

Exist beyond common without the chains of pride…

Decree optimism as an action verb…

Declare the opposite as obsolete unheard….

Inhale essence from the meaning of life…

Exhale balance and let in seep into right…

See who you are and not what some see…

Know that independent thinking is the key to free…

Accept what it is and know what it’s not…

Understand how it is and step from the dark…

Delete judgment and remove a burden not yours….

Then watch how it flies, how it zips, and the heights it will soar…

Spirit

“Pre Autumn Reflection” by Author, G. D. Grace

Night sky of summer, my eyes are drawn upward toward the beauty of your brilliance.  I’m always more sensitive around this time of year knowing that August starts the decent to autumn where cooler mornings and shorter days reclaim time zone.

Last year around this time I was in the center of a relationship that quickly disintegrated and become part of memory.  I am sitting at the helm of yet another summer gone by, longing for that which was never mine, yet I feel stronger than I have ever felt before in this life. Perhaps it is because there is strength gained from hurt and pain for those of us who survive and stay in the lane of progression.

I have become an ardent supporter of embracing self worth and it has allowed me to sidestep spiritually draining potholes in the road.  Since heartbreak, I can identify “not-good-for-me” quickly and dismiss it before it ever gets to become that anchor.  A spirit that settles for anything is too heavy to fly and I find solace in staying airborne in pursuit of my dreams.

Discouragement tugs a bit to aggressively at times, but a mainstay in the forefront is a vision of what lies ahead.  There are periods where I am just wandering aimlessly in the center of the creative crossroads wondering when, where, why, & how, but it never reaches that fever pitch where I want to toss up my hands and run in defeat.

I’ve locked horns with many overbearing bulls over the course of time, and even with all of their brashness I have still been able to sidestep and avoid the impact of their charge.  In wondering, I have been able to see life outside the realm of pessimism because optimism has become a part of my spiritual core.  The brighter side of life can be seen if you have honed your ability to focus and see things as they really are, as opposed to how someone else dictates it for you.

I hear a lot of grumblings about health, politics, religion, finances, occupancy… the list goes on and on.  All I know how to do is to appreciate what I’ve got.  Fancy clothes, money, a dwelling equipped with top of the line extravagances doesn’t satisfy my spirit as much as love and kindness.  I’d rather see as much good in everything around me because I always remind myself that this world doesn’t belong to man…

It belongs to the grand scale and divine.

Yeah, the grand scale and divine.

I’m motivated by the joy of simplicity and until the day I die I will invest in reaching that level of thinking that supersedes all materialism.

I know no other way to be.  When people try to pull me backwards I rebel and shut them down.  Not with words though.  I achieve this by limiting their access to me.  In order for me to remain in a state of progression I set healthy boundaries for myself.   If you allow them, people will push you to the limits of patience.

I have no time for that at my age.

So, as I wander around at these crossroads I am filled with ambition, knowing that my evolution is still very much in progress.
