(Poem #12) Contemplations


What is to be found outside that’s not within? Still we look around to afraid to realise That we don’t need it the hunting, the looking, the demanding Of what was never ours to begin with. You can never fill a void that is in you With something else that is not yours. Go back inwards Go in backwards Just feel your body It’s your responsibility to realise You have always been complete.

(Poem#11) The false belief of need for clarity

The false belief of need for clarity

There’s so much alive in me So many feelings that want a voice   The wisdom of my soul The sensitivity of my body The loyalty of my mind   I wish their voice was unanimous But it isn’t   Their needs are different And I want to know it all Understand each little piece   As if I’m a jigsaw puzzle Waiting to be completed   But that’s not me   I’m ever expanding Contracting Expanding Contracting   Breathing through it all   I don’t know Who I am Tomorrow, or what to do In each situation   Part of me believes I should Another part doesn’t Ambiguity   Can I find peace Rest In the not knowing?  …

(Poem#10) When bad news comes

When bad news comes

Can you allow yourself to feel Even if it’s just for a moment Not holding back emotions tears sound Feeling the emotions rage through you Call it pain anger sadness grief rage Or simply observe feel The body’s response to what is alive in you Can you cry and love it? Can you scream and enjoy it? Can you freak out and watch yourself doing it? Breathe this aliveness inside you It’s okay You are loved More than you might ever know It’s okay You are allowed to break down to step up Like a phenix when the dust settles down You are alive.

(Poem#7) Life

Pure Wilrieke - Horses2

Through these mists of reflection Is it the past or future Stories that distract the soul or mere entrances for action Healing beyond the mind The body aching Longing for love is there peace to find In every connection a kiss an embrace of deep penetration Life, break me open! Reveil my sweet as well as my wild Show me the path and I’ll have the courage to take a step beyond my horizons That once were close so I couldn’t see But as they grow vast my world shows The beauty that was always surrounding me.

(Poem#6) Shattered Dreams

Shattered dreams

The dreams I had of you Lay shattered on the floor I smashed them into pieces When I finally saw clearly.   I thought I was nothing Insecure and afraid I believed you were perfect The flawless example for me to strive for.   I’d put you on a pedestal A ivory tower of ‘this is who I should be’ And I couldn’t stand beside you As I made myself small.   You didn’t make me to. You didn’t want me to.   But now I grow stronger Letting go of these shells that don’t fit anymore Letting go of the filters that color my sight Making me see That filter that consists of projections, assumptions and fear.   You’re…

(Poem#5) Dancing for the Dolmen

Dancing for the dolmen

Sharing my feelings with my feet in the grass Dark sky soothing emotions Of fear Of pain Of joy for feeling what’s alive in me.   The forest embracing My lonely inner child Of abandonment Of misunderstanding Of heart-opening love that’s alive in me.   When a dolmen appears In the nothingness Of clear mind Of truthful knowing Of barefoot dancing that wakes up what’s alive in me.   Answers come Questions come Of new knowing Of new forgetting Of remembering what always has been alive in me.

(Poem #3) The Surrender to Life

What would happen if I give up the war inside me? What would happen if I give up giving names to Right and Wrong? What would happen if I give up striving for a goal that seems out of reach? What would happen if I give up to try to fulfill projections, assumptions, images, expectations that were never truly mine? What would happen if I give up the neediness to solve all questions? What would happen if I give up trying to understand it all? What would happen if I give up all that no longer serves me? What would happen if I give up the idea that everything is complicated and I need to work hard to earn valuation?…
