I find my courage even in my deepest fear…
I step forward when my heart cries to hold back. Stepping on to an unseeing path, but moving my feet forward, my souls calls me to be brave.
We all meet these crossings in our lives, when we feel like falling to the ground and staying there, but we stand up and rise and be brave. From the depths of our beings, even when fear tries to paralyze us, we find our bravery deep within us, it calls to us, in our darkest moments.
|'The Stranger' by digital artist Paree Erica|
oh soul of mine-
when shadows consume,
when darkness covers your way-
your flickering that comes,
from your glowing
will light the way.
even when your foot,
slips against rock-
even if you fall on your hands,
touching cold ground-
lift up, and be brave.
Your courage is your surrendering,
rising and reaching,
even when you feel,
you can't anymore.
for the colors of life,
the brightness that you are,
as the love of the Divine keeps you,
whispers to you,
Maureen Kwiat Meshenberg: About 3 years ago, I was awakened from my slumber, though it was a devastating breaking point in my life, I was reunited to a true relationship with my spiritual self and my gift through poetry. It is my intention to reach others by sharing my story through poetry and touching theirs. I am the Page owner of Heart’s Calling .I am also the Visionary Poet for the Facebook Magazine "Women as Visionaries with Lore Raymond" here. I recite spoken word at different venues and also host a monthly Creative Writing Circle using the space for women to bring out their inner release through written word. I am currently working on publishing a book of my poetry. I can be contacted through my Heart’s Calling Facebook page here.
