Tear Stained Faces

Tear Stained Faces
(real life raising a child w/SN)
your tear stained face
your hair all a mess
your wild eyes peering at me
wondering if I see you
wondering if I understand
oh how I try
patience comes and goes
but love abounds
tears begin to stream down my face 
I turn so you won't see my hurt
my heart all a mess 
my eyes must mirror the doubt
both of us carrying such strength
the bond between us immense
our hearts' emotions are entwined
thoughts are portrayed with a simple look
our tear stained faces gaze back at one another
your questioning thoughts and my doubtfulness has vanished
replaced by a peace filled love
I see you
I understand

Road Map of My Mind

Ever feel like you're not sure where you're going? You get the map out, Google probably, and find your direction. Life doesn't offer a map, or Google. In our minds we plan our futures. Others help add to these intricate ideas. We start out thinking we have it all together because there's a plan of sorts. Lately I've realized how inconsistent life's travels can be. I've also been brought to a turning point-  there doesn't have to be a map. In fact finding your direction means following your instincts, leaning on your intuition, listening to your heart, accepting mistakes, and learning to love yourself. Meditation, prayer, a beach walk are just a few ways to rid yourself of the negative thoughts that will continue to hold you back from where you're meant to end up. Never allow others to determine how you feel, or to impose their own insecurities onto you.  Not everyone is meant to wander onward with us. Hard truths hurt, but if we allow lies and disrespect from ourselves just think what we allow others to do; past or present. Trust yourself enough to make those tough decisions that will lead you where you are going.
