poem ~ the results of pressure

I know you are going 
through a difficult time too, 
But what if you remembered
it's part of the process of making a beautiful you?

What if you changed 
your perspective of pressure, 
And saw the results 
as added benefits to measure?

When you glance around at life
and review the things that you see,
Like the butterflies that come 
from a caterpillar pod up in the tree.

You can't help but reflect
on all the changes and effects, 
That come from the process 
from being a cocoon in a nest.

What if you stayed there all scarred
as to what you would be,
If you shed the comfy pod
surrounding your body?

Would you wanna stay there
wrapped all in a pod,
Or would you wanna be more
beautiful and vibrant abroad?

Yet the beauty that comes
when we give into the pressure,
Is one that produces 
so many experiences in the future.

So no matter if you are
a diamond or a pearl,
Remember that there's more 
when there's pressure to the core.

Don't stay stuck
looking at this view, 
When you can be transformed
into something brand new.

poem ~ you ask

You ask for wisdom
and I give you a sign.

You ask for courage
and I place a spark deep inside.

You ask for hope
and I show you a glimpse of how I'm gonna take care of it for you.

You ask for direction
and I close the door.

You ask for understanding
and I answer 24/7.

You ask for peace
and I ask for you to let me have it.

You ask for results
and I show you the choice to be disciplined.

You ask for more
and I reveal how you can do with less.

You ask for love 
and I give you more then you could ever want.

You say you need answers now
and I help you to see the value of giving it more time.

You ask 
and I say let's look at it with new eyes.
