Remember That

 
Darling one day, should you push
Away years of fantasies you chased
The dream you thought you’d never find
When comfort pretends to never lie
Remember that

We made promises to the person we were
And not to who we will become
So when one day you find yourself
On your knees bleeding
Your organs cave and instincts crawl
Promise me you won’t wait
Don’t you dare wait til skyfall
Remember that

Feeling when your heart drops
And your skin swells
To the past tastes and faint smells
Of love and belonging and dreams come true
Oh darling, please let
New dreams become too.

The poor advice of past voices
Leave them behind
And void of the new
Let them shake and let them stir
Remember that

The light in the cracks
It must pass through
And when it does, get after it.
Leap, my darling, and don’t look back.
Until the wind breaks your face
And the branches take your skin
And let the waves of ocean
Cleanse the palette within.
Let the sweat-built armies
Free fall off your chin
As suns from different universes
Bless you with the same power
The gods built you in.
Remember that

Running is not a sin.
But how we begin,

 "Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."

Leonardo Da Vinci

The Ultimate Proposal From One Being To Another

One of the most beautiful readings I've ever encountered; I resonate with these words, particularly with the limitations of true alignment in the transactional nature of human  relationships, and surrender of ego and all it means to be human in our outer vibrational forms. I must clarify that I am not a follower and do not support the group's activity beyond this piece of writing.
