Rebel Truth

Would you, if you could,
start a revolution in your heart?
Sit still and write the manifesto
seething in your blood, filling veins,
Can you find the courage
to tell the true story of what you want
and thereby set the world alight?

Is it in you?  The hot core of life
a sphere of molten desire to know,
to manifest in another's gravity
is perhaps the true rebellion
in a reality seeking to pervert you,
to melt you into a corruption.
Fight back! Live the love within you!

  2. As a wise man once said to me, "Love is in the essential nature of us all . . . We have to work at seeing the path, the way." I agree with him. So? Live the love. Be a rebel.

  4. As I read this I am listening to Adele singing, "willing to take the risk." Funny, that.

    I love this poem: starting a revolution in one's heart -- what a concept. We talk about cultivating love, compassion, etc. But an actual revolution in the heart? Great concept!! A warrior in the world.

    Bravo.

    I AM LOVE..

    We are all love, the pure energy, and the word, just cant cover, what I`m talkin`of...

Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."

Tell me what is in your heart...
