All I Want for Christmas Are Answers

Updated on January 4, 2011



We give, we question, we wonder why

Is there a way for unity without a goodbye?

People come onto our path for a reason

The hope is there, that it’s for longer than a season.


Yet at a time when the world wants to celebrate

We still look outside ourselves to decide our fate

What’s returned in a relationship not satisfying our needs

Did it change, growing apart, or are they continuing unanswered pleas?


Our purpose in this life is to balance out karma

The questions plague us as we search our dharma

Without owning and understanding our baggage

Our authentic selves lost, living a mere facade or mirage.


Intuitively we feel and know our truth

Is it ego that prevails, or trying to fix our youth?

We often settle for less than what we deserve

Following our sole/soul path, do we have the nerve?


Too seldom realized it’s not about them or what we see in the mirror

We either hold back or fear our demise, wishing we could see clearer

Yet the answer is always within

Everything a gift, for us to begin…


THE MONTH OF HONOUR: Dec. 31st through Jan 19th

      Honored you'd choose to spend time reading my poem while at the library Jean :) Thank you for your appreciation. The book I mentioned by Carolyn is "Sacred Contracts". It includes a way to figure our "12 houses" - how we relate to people in relationships, our career etc. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it rang true to be sure, not just with me but many others as well. Next time you're at the library, might be worth checking out :) Hope your power returns soon! Metaphysically I'd take a look at that if I were you - anything you feel in the dark about? Life has suggested I take a few days off myself but with all the modern ammenities, communication is probably why. Pleasure to hear from you and if we don't talk in the meantime, Merry Christmas :)))

      Hi SEM Pro,

      What a lovely poem! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am currently experiencing a 6 day power outage here in NJ, and had to come to my local library as I'm experiencing computer withdrawal. I had a really upsetting phone call from my bipolar brother before the outage, and wrote a poem because I had to put those feelings somewhere. I will fix it up when my computer at home is up again. I met someone in my new Metaphysics class who also suggested Caroline Myss, I got one of her books. It's not the one you mentioned on True Love Transcends Time, and I can't think of the title now. I can't read in the dark, so if this lasts another day I'll be sitting there with a flashlight.

      Thank you so much James :) From another so talented, your comment warms my heart - especially knowing you're not much of a poetry fan :)

      Interesting to see that all who've responded to this are the ones whose truth truly shines - perhaps realizing what others perceive as "settling" is an illusion negating the lessons we've attracted?

      Thanks for coming by and your comment James. I very much hope you have a warm and loving Christmas season this year :-)

      ...well, it isn't the Christmas season, however your brilliant poem, sends a beautiful message for all seasons. I have never enjoyed reading a profile as much as I did while reading yours. It felt as though you were talking directly to me. You are one talented, gifted lady and what a treasure to discover. I've a feeling you will be seeing alot of me. Oh, I too lived in Hawaii - 9 years. Stay close by - Aloha and Mahalo...vocalcoach :)
