These are some of my random writings. I thought I would keep them here in this blog and share them! They are fictional but as you know every fiction has some reality in them!

A long path ...

I start my travels as any other traveller.
I pack my belongings, taking a few personal items
that I cannot bear to be without and step out into
the unknown.

I turn left then right then head straight.
I take the path that is less travelled.
I run through a maze of trees only to find more trees.
I walk through the cities, on the dirty streets.

On these streets I see humanity in all of its glory.
I see the poor, the homeless, the rich and successful.
They all walk the same road, a few, but only
a few truly know why they are lucky enough to
walk the true path. Does that man in a business suit
know? or does that woman pushing a shopping cart
down an empty alley know? Do any of us know?

I continue on my travels... holding my belongings
close to me I walk down a path filled with insecurity
and indescision... 'what should I do?' This questions
keeps plaguing my lately.
Indeed what should we do?
Do I continue on the path I am currently on? Or
should I suddenly turn right and start on a whole
new path? What should I do?

I am about to turn on this path, not knowing exactly
where it will lead to.
I walk with my head up and my eyes open wide
not to miss a single moment of any scene that
comes before me.
As I walk past the man in the business suit I see
he hands the woman with the shopping cart
a few dollars and gives her his coffee.
I smile and realize that we are all on a path of our
I hold my belongings and I look into the eyes of
another on the same path as he says...
"Where shall we go today?"

Prayers I

I seek forgiveness from the One True God
I seek forgiveness for my sins, for my
thoughts, sayings and actions.

I ask for patience
I ask for courage
I ask for mercy
I ask for strength

I pray for my family & friends
I pray for the believing people of the world
I pray for the sick and weak
I pray for the children
I pray for the elderly
I pray for all people past and present

I seek forgievness from the One True God

The soul of the earth

There inside the ground beats the heart of our world
hot molten core pulses endlessly
it pushes through its veins the waters from the ocean
it heaves with tremors that rent its surface
exposing a new landscape, hills become mountains,
valley’s become gorges and so the earth changes
but its heart beats

Time is meaningless to this earth, its changes take
place in hundreds of thousands of years what is a
few hundred years to wait for the creation of a new
landscape? Its shape designed and created now made
possible and so the earth changes but its heart beats.

Its heart beats, veins run with water, its limbs are
the trees, its skin made from rock and sand,
its eyes and ears the animals who populate its surface.
All parts know their function all work together in
harmony to sustain and increaseits vastness
and so the earth changes but its heart beats.

The earth existed in unity with all, like a great machine
its parts working flawlessly with each other.
But the world was not a machine for it had a heart
and with a heart came a spirit, a soul.

A soul: the central or integral part; the vital core.

But where is the soul of the earth?

It is in all of us.
We are the ones who give meaning to this earth.
In all we do we honour this world by giving it
a reason to continue to evolve.
