Whatever You Call It

Setting an example for someone else to follow

 

To inspire

 

To encourage hope

 

To try

 

To obtain inner peace

 

Chasing it to distant corners

 

Tasting it

 

In short, sporadic intervals

 

Maintaining a light in a hurricane wind

 

So that others can see it

 

Sometimes they notice it lit

 

Even when you let it go out

 

Time is always going to continue

 

With or without you

 

What you do with it is what matters most

 

Talking is important

 

But trying can be life altering

 

No matter how you ‘use it’ or ‘lose it’

 

The eyes of others follow you everywhere

 

Physically, digitally and spiritually

 

You can say that you don’t have a spirit

 

But when you feel like the clock is running out

 

When time is terminal

 

When your light is low

 

You do what you can to nourish it

 

To raise up your own voice

 

To spark your light

 

To lift your spirits high

 

Let others in

 

Those who watch your light flicker in the distance

 

The ones you provide encouragement

 

That person you instilled hope in

 

You family

 

Blood related or not

 

A stranger who picks you up

 

Cradles you and collects your tears in the sleeves of their arm

 

Balance can only occur when you let it happen

 

Let in the strengths of others

 

To absorb their kindness

 

To sip their bitter tea

 

Who will tuck you in

 

Until you are able to try again

 

To regain your hope

 

To lead you back to ‘spirit’

 

Or whatever you call it
