Welcome to my thinking out loud…



Posted on 9 February 2021 by Iain under Thinking Out Loud


I stood in the rain and let it cleanse me
The rain matched my mood
The rain was my mood

I am the rain

The sky’s tears were from my soul
Running down the cheeks of the world
falling onto my upturned face

I am at one

I tasted my tears and knew them
I saw my wounds and owned them
I felt my heart slip, and I held it

I am my reality

I breathe deeply and touch the source
I exhale & link my soul
I relinquish my desires & meditate

I am home

There is no pain in my house
Love is the essence of every welcome
The door is open to all those who can see me

I am my future, my past, and my present
