Baffling and Battling

Reach, stretch of a ballerina in the flow with rhythm of the music

Visualizing world peace and harmony but society is so unkind to those with less

Less understanding or growth or money or wisdom or circumstances

How does one love with the sorrow, pain and confusion

Through faith, surrender, detachment and tons of grace and hope

The holy instant where the world shifts will create a new vibration of love, peace and joy

There will come a day when all this will fade and the new will emerge

But who will lead us and why aren’t you taking me there yet

Closed you off and out but you keep sneaking your way through into the heart of me

This forward motion baffles and battles me and I give in to it again letting you go

Seeing you gone eases my mind and fears but having you near is all I ever wanted
