Fifteen - A Place to Begin - B - Another Step Forward on this Journey, My Life

Life is a miracle, you got it, now what are you going to do with it?

For a moment time stops - the world shuts down, my midnight arrives, the tears do not come, I am alone, but I am not lonely.  I stand nude but I am not naked, and in that moment I find myself, and I begin.  I know I will not fall without getting up.  I will be safe when the sun fades away.

I have come from a place so far from where I began.  My life has been a journey.  Everyday I look in the mirror and I know I am the most beautiful girl in the world.  I will define who I am.

I want dreams, I do not want nightmares
I need to know the truth
to believe in angels and miracles.

I look at my reflection and I love who I am
I will do what I have to do to hold on to me
and suddenly I realize, I am not perfect, I am me.
I will believe unconditionally that my tomorrow will come
I trust, and I will believe in this life
I have listened, I have learned and I have loved.

Faith is who I am
I close my eyes and I find my soul.

This is my truth
I will step forward even when I fall.

I don’t want magic
but I want to know this is not as good as it gets.

I don’t want make believe
but I want to believe in fairytales.

Somehow my tomorrow will be
hope and courage will once again emerge
life will be bigger than me.

I will stand in dignity and grace
I will make my music and dance
I want to feel joy and I am not afraid of pain.

My journey is and my voyage will continue
and all the while until I reach home,
I shall laugh out loud.

Fourteen - A Poem - Dancing with Dostoevskij - Two

Dancing with Dostoevskij

From that far away place, she beckons me
Whispering softly
Her words flow across the white pages
Subtle... tempting words, my life, my history

Bathed in the moonlit night
I begin once again
The timeless journey of love and life

My heart, my soul
Words engraved in that old book
My life

Those sweet tragic words of promise
Immersed in a whirlwind of emotions
A wave of hope and I have come home

One step, then two
The music ignites, the orchestra of life
Playing the song of midnight
My song, our song
The song of moonlight and tears

Once again like old friends, knowing lovers
Embraced in trust
If only for one moment

The silence of our truth
We dance

Our histories, our suffering
Disappear into the night sky
Remarkable this journey has been

I find again, my faith
The joys, the sorrows
Of life and of death

The tears and the smiles
Our passion, our life
Love is life and Life is

Bathed in the moonlit night
Entangled in our histories
We dance in Grand Square of Humanity

13 - Dancing with Dostoevskij - One

Dancing with Dostoevskij is where I want to be 
in the rhythm of my life
so selfless and so free
I pause as I wander
through the love and the pain
I glance back at yesterday
so sweet the memories I shall hold
I remember and I forget
I leap into tomorrow
dancing with Dostoevskij is where I want to be
in the rhythm of my life
so selfless and so free
I pause as I wander
I become me
