I searched for you and me
I looked high and low, in front and behind every tree
I glanced off the cliffs below
I searched long and hard, did you know
In the clouds and in the lakes
I searched rivers and mountains with no breaks
I called for you and no one replied
I cried for you inside
I drove miles and miles looking for a glimpse to pull aside
I longed for you and knew you longed for me
To find you was beyond my reach
I was looking for you
Missing every queue
I looked for the depth of what I should be
Who someone else wanted to see
I lost sight of my own dreams
I thought I was lost where I once was found
Then one day courage stood its ground
Vulnerability spoke with a fierce sound
Wherever you go, there you will be
I’m you and me
When we experience life, life is also experiencing us, I believe. When we go farther and faster and search for ourselves instead of the experiences that creates our selves ,we miss the queues that it is ourselves we are escaping.
When we run from ourselves, we run from our faith, our beliefs, our dreams and our core foundation. When we deny our own existence is not enough because of someone else’s opinion or judgement, then we deny our ability to grow, to serve, to lead, to inspire, to be driven, to reach, to grasp courage with all your might and LIVE beyond limitations set by ourselves or others.
We become stuck within another or others lives and deny our own growth waiting for another growth. The best gift you can give yourself and another is the freedom to be loved at the exact place you are so they have room to move forward. This is courageous!
LIVE WITH COURAGE!
