Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Trial by fire

Words that play
Around in my head
They go away
But leave me truth
About how friends
Are doing

Words in my heart
Caress the pain
I am a small part
Of what is needed
Or of what
Seeks to continue

When life is demanding
And I’ve no words
Of understanding
A mix of praise and song
I have no fear of walls
Just lots of questions


  1. Hi Dixie,

    Your poem offers a lot of great advice. Our thoughts and the feelings that come from them do go away if we let them. Our pain often comes from not letting them just pass.

    One of my favorite questions when fear strikes is just "what is this". It helps, sometimes, to remind me that "it", is just a thought.


  2. Hi Roger,

    I am exploring as usual. The decisions that make for positive living are foremost in present thought; touching on the moment.
    I shall try yout "what is this"; thank you for sharing strength and wisdom!


  3. Hi Dixie,
    Thanks for sharing this poem. Your own continued exploring and the moving on beyond the walls; will bring you further wisdom as your questions will discover answers.

  4. As you know, Gary, having previously discussed 'walls'... it is not my own I would penetrate.
    It is difficult viewing life through my 'rose coloured glasses'; I need them off and let things be. Let people go and do what they've waited to do; planned their goals toward, and not transpose my own onto theirs.
    Instead with my incessant questioning I fail to respect their privacy. It has been a month, so far, of giving up. When I give up, life seems to flow the way its supposed to flow.
