poem ~ coaching

Coaching will challenge you
and rock you to your core,
And test every belief 
you've held onto before.

Coaching will force you
out of your comfort zones,
And ask you to acknowledge 
the feelings you've given a home.

Coaching will create in you
a path to go deep,
And inspect all the information 
you harbor and keep.

Coaching will show you
the light in the dark,
And give you a perspective 
that's a realization to mark.

Coaching isn't easy
and necessarily fun,
And though it's productive 
there's a price to be won.

Coaching is awesome 
even when it's hard to do,
And see all the reasons to continue
when there is deep pain inside of you.

Coaching will help you
unravel your dreams, 
And give you a purpose
beyond any one thing.

Coaching will focus on
all the things you ignore,
And help you discover 
the life you want and so much more.

Coaching has changed me
over and over again,
And given me the keys
to unlock the greatness within.

Coaching is one of the reasons I can be
living a life that's abundant and free,
And so though I'm at a crossroads today
I'll keep pressing on towards healing always.

poem ~ the beach walk

I walk along the path
not knowing where it goes,
Content to just enjoy each step 
that leads to where the water flows.

Along the path I see
sandunes piled on each side of me,
The plants that grow up from the birms
loom bright green through sandy turns.

The path is sprinkled with shells and such
discarded by the waves they've touched,
It's hard to believe this exists 
around the world just like this.

Emerging up from the brim
I see the ocean in front of me,
How can I not gasp my breath
and be thankful for this day of rest. 

The endless sea is calling me
to come and sit with its beauty,
And watch as the waves toss and roll
one of top of another in an endless flow.

The roar of the waves that crash towards me
are a blissfulness to witness, 
As I watch them do their thing
I feel a peace settle beneath all I see. 

The meaning of such times like this
no words can convey the depth of it,
It's something that lives in your soul
and gives meaning to the world you know.

poem ~ the volatile life

Part of me is angry 
that after all the work that I've done,
That there is more yet to do 
in finding true freedom.

Part of me is hurting 
at the work coaching brings,
And the things it tears up
that are hiding in me.

Part of me has cried
at all this has done,
To stomp on the beliefs
that I have held onto like a gun.

Part of me is flabbergasted 
that you can find it so fast,
Even when I've let go
of so much awful trash.

Part of me wants the pain
just to go away,
Because I feel
it's too much to deal with today.

Part of me knows
that to deal with the light,
Means humanity must be discovered
through the darkest of nights.

Part of me gets
that truth can really hurt,
Because it will cut through
all the tough spots of dirt.

Part of me resents 
the threads of abusiveness,
That threaten to torment me
and makes this a volatile mess.

Part of me hates
when you tell me to let go,
Because I know what has come 
from staying true to my soul.

Part of me is irritated 
when you tell me I'll be just fine,
As if you know what I am going through 
in this quest of life that is mine.

Part of me wants to run 
oh so very far,
From everyone and everything
that's been a part of my journey thus far.

Part of me understands
that to get to this place,
I've got to face all the demons
that haunt my beautiful face.

Part of me wishes
there's a place I could leave, 
All this baggage I have to sort through
to become freer indeed.

Part of me feels
through all of this mess,
I'm gonna find deeper beauty
that gives more strength not less.

Part of me is grateful
for what others see,
And how they help me uncover
who I want to be.
