The Winds of Change

Can you feel it?
the energy changing form          

Can you see it?
the vortex of your storm

Lower consciousness
gives way to higher state of mind

Letting go of restrictions
negative ways that bind

Seeing the world in a clearer way
Don't need your approval of what I think or say

Before the winds of change came
she was an obedient 'Yes' girl

Until life-blood drained 
and caused sanity to unfurl

No more people pleasing
out of fear of rejection

Now acceptance of authentic self
Mirrored in strong woman's reflection

Gone are days of tireless trudging                           
in darkened muck of oppression

I choose a freedom dance
that lifts me from depression

Shedding the unproductive layers
breathing in a new liberation

Letting go of old baggage 
brings about soul in celebration

Can you feel it?
the transformation it can bring

Can you see it?
no more puppet on a string

Being a Twin

It's hard to fathom
a life without you

Your my heart and soul
a friend that is true

Your my rock
when life's tough

Give me hope
when it's rough

What a miracle it is
we were sent here together

A bond like ours grows
and goes on forever

Traveling life's road
on this earth is our fate

It's a gift from God
having you as my soul-mate
