The real you

Life can be a dramatic show at times, a stage full of actors, pretending to be someone they aren’t. Lights, camera, action. When the curtains raise we seem to always be searching for the right mask to hide behind. A fake smile to present to the world so everyone thinks we are okay, trying to be the perfect person society wants us to be. Perfection is only an illusion that tells you you are less than. It’s the false representation of life and yourself. None of us are perfect.

You are meant to walk the path that makes you feel whole. Whatever that path is in your eyes. You don’t need permission from anyone to be your true self. Do it unapologetically. Shatter those expectations of society. Plant the seeds within yourself and watch them bloom into something that is so beautiful and has always been so beautiful. Your true authentic self.

I want the real, honest and raw YOU. The one that is perfectly imperfect. The one with scars, pain, darkness, struggles, happiness, sadness, hopes and dreams. That’s the YOU I want. The real you.

Let go and dance before the song is over.

Hidden Secrets – A Collaboration

Had the extreme pleasure of writing again with my best friend Christopher. It’s been such an honor to have been able to write so much with him lately.

Please go check out his blog https://divingdeepwithchristopher.wordpress.com give him some love and follow along on his journey.

you begin
to rake
your aching
fingers
the anticipation
burning
slowly
working its way
towards my
warm soul
electric heat
finally
reaches inside
of my desire

caressing all the
hidden secrets
of my soul
your love fills me
gliding through
the shadows
of every part

of my being
every inch
every seam
of my deepest flesh
your lingering
obsession
Is only now
my lingering question
of when will you
reveal these
hidden secrets
to me
that only you
can see
all over again?
