Make Peace, Release

With the New Year comes days of struggle but just as many, if not more, days of peace and satisfaction. Already this year, a project is developing from within. It is called, BREATHE AND RECEIVE, Challenge Confusion. It is a way to look for ways to balance a lifestyle committed to well-being-ness!

A poem came to me yesterday. I’ll share it with you. I put it to music and gave it a read. Kind of reminded me of the late 50’s in Berkeley, where coffee houses hosted practicing poets who read on stage with an occasional bongo playing in the background. — a great memory. I have recorded this poem with this memory in mind.

Have fun with your interpretation!

MAKE PEACE, RELEASE

Long ago I gave up.
Urged to be generic.
Breath, Air, Body, Soul, Spirit,
Food, Job, Money, Family, Rules.
What manner of life have I found myself in?
So I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.
So I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.

Am I happy or am I sad?
Of that I am not certain.
Heart beating messages of love.
Why this great despair?
Am I doomed to this confusion?
Yet I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.
Yet I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.

Time is closing in each day
Like fog I cannot stop it.
No other can see my Secret,
spoken between my breath,
Am I adrift, alone, forgotten?
Yet I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.
Yet I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.

A sudden breath inspires Me
It is I who knows the Secret.
No longer in fog, lucidity lights the way
I am at peace and divulge what was hidden:
All you need is love. All you need is Love.
And I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.
And I breathe and I breathe and I breathe and I breathe.

— Barbara Dean Aliaga
