My Reflection ( a poem of inspiring thoughts)

as a butterfly, to set it free...
as a butterfly, to set it free...


I have a domain that remains within me, and no matter just where I may go,

Each day it guides and to oversee, is so influential, my every move to know.

It does not allow an unfinished task, my being lax, nor any waste of time to be,

So does have a hold on my life, I wish it were a butterfly, and I'd just set it free.


freedom
freedom


Never a single temptation or any dare, escapes this thoughtful genie, of its care,

Oversees every opinion, to be fair, influences my decisions to give and to share.

Always with me in all seriousness or mirth, helping to prepare my life, its worth.

Derives powers without consent, at times to appear heaven sent, from my birth.

helps me to brave the storms...
helps me to brave the storms...


My inner self, helps me to truthfully see, to stay as calm or just when to flee,

If a moral affair, helps me to be aware, a decision to accept or to disagree.

Poses questions, makes me think, as when we're thirsty gives water to drink.

Warns me when my boat's to sink, and reminds me life may be gone in a blink.


Reminds be not to forget to take pause and smell the flowers...
Reminds be not to forget to take pause and smell the flowers...


As life gets harder and to bring us all down, says listen to music, its only sound,

Never fail, in taking pause, to smell the flowers, a worthy cause, to be unbound.

That little voice we each hear inside, within our hearts it does abide, it is found.

One's own finest self-esteem, brightest spirit to make hope gleam, goes around.

An understanding of ourselves is the best gift. I think so many never find a way to understand themselves, because they cop to pressures of their environment and society's opinions more than sitting back and taking in just who they really are and what makes them happy.

Beautiful verses that inspire, but also can make a reader stop and think, and as always; beautiful pictures.

Beauty has always been in the eye of the beholder, and luckily, every time I go out, I smile to think about what I can see.

Conscience, common sense and the five senses are personal guides we should always allow to be free to roam.
