As I sit at gate 22, terminal 5 in JFK Airport – I am waiting for the flight to board, I wonder…How many things are we waiting for? And how many things are we simply procrastinating about? There is always something that I am putting off, but why?

I usually will give myself an excuse – be patient, don’t hurry things, it will happen when it is the right time. That is what I tell myself, many of us aren’t sure if it is the right move or the right time. We wiggle around uncomfortably trying to navigate through the thought process that is “taking action”.  It is terrifying sometimes, certain decisions will affect you in the long term and those around you. You mull over what to do, how to do it, what you need to do to and how do you know of this is the right path.

A few years ago, I heard the term “dark passenger” on the Dexter series. It was something that didn’t leave me, the term that is – what is it that is riding around with you? It could be a person, a trauma, an experience or a conflict. You carry everywhere you go and it is to heavy a load.

What did they give you? What did they leave you with? Like clouds in a night storm, you try to see through to the sky but you can’t – their shadow continues to cover you. You have trusted them to guide you, you had no choice. They became your eyes because you only saw them…

There is nothing wrong with forging your own path. Sometimes the traditional,  popular,  tried and tested journey isn’t for you. You simply are perfectly fine with having ice cream for breakfast,  go ahead and do just that. Carve away your own story, make it as unique as you are and allow the manifestation of your vision be true to you.

Scary,  the thought that you are about to embark on a path that many don’thave the audacity to walk, the path to self discovery, fulfillment and joy. Don’t allow fear to stop you from taking it all on, you are smart enough to know that allowing yourself to stop the stagnation in your life will supply you with the satisfaction you have denied yourself all this time. What are you afraid of? Maybe it isn’t fear at all.

It is comfortable,  to ride along without having to change up what…

Do you know
where he has gone
wise one?
Did he tell you
I would come?
Do you know

Did he tell you about me?
Do you know

Please tell him I was here.

They see raindrops
glisten on
rose petals.
They don’t realize that
those are my tears
clinging to the beauty
that was our love.
My tears will keep
flowing if it will keep
our love alive so that
it doesn’t wither
away and dies.

I see her
I feel her
when no one else does.
I hug her
I cry with her
when no one else does.
I know her because
we were together for 9 months
she is my twin.
She gave up her life
so that I could live.
I love you always
my sister
when no one else does.

I am not a twin, but I can
only image the bond they share always.
