Is it Love?

Heart Pathways

Bit by bit,
block by block,
I’ve constructed a fortress to protect my vulnerable heart.

Bit by bit,
block by block,
I’ve collected my arsenal of defense.

Bit by bit,
block by block,
I’ve forgotten how it feels to connect.

On my path to righteousness
I’ve discovered loneliness.
Places within me have closed down
and my heart is in need of rerouting.

So I call upon gods and angels
to mend my wounded heart.
I’m in need of a pathway,
an opening for love to traverse.

The moment is now!
It’s time to choose.
I surrender my heart.

Vulnerable, I stand before you,
open, naked and exposed.
I choose truth.
I choose peace.
I choose love.

My life’s blood,
my truth force,
swells from a trickle to a stream,
singing its sweet melody,
ebbing and flowing into a heart-song.

I breathe my breath of love.
It’s swirling and rippling,
creating new patterns
on its synchronicity tour of my heart.

Love is the answer.
Love knows the way.
It is the voice from deep inside,
persistent and unwavering,
walking in steadfast footsteps
and carving a new pathway through my soul,
a deep passageway that even 50 million years cannot erase.

The embers of my heart have been stirred
and my flame burns strong,
guiding and directing
like the beaconing morning star.
Here I am
and I choose truth.
I choose peace.
I choose love.

I’ve found my way to the promised land.
I AM the peace I’ve been waiting for in the valley of my heart
— and I have a dream.  — by Sherry Puricelli
