Today

Life isn’t easy

But there’s always a way 

to bring light into your life.
There’s always

a way to get through anything.
There’s always light 

at the end of Dark tunnels. 
There’s the Almighty that we trust

That present feeling

That we must focus on
Getting stuck in the past or the future is never a good idea
Then you keep missing the present moments
Those moments that you can create into the best moments of your life
There’s the moment you get up in the morning 

and you tell yourself 

today will be the best day of my life 
today I will be present 

I will focus

I will choose to be happy

Today I will have faith
I will try to overcome my fears

Today is priceless 

What I do with it is my choice.

Life…

Grey clouds

Light shines

Still waters

Uncovering
Unveiling

Peaceful

Questioning

Challenging 
That inner strength

That meaning

Purpose

Is not 

Tangible
I reach out 

In the thin

It is not 

Reachable
Pain

No meaning

Clarity and Confusion

Seems to blend
Peace 

Hope

Ashes 

Flames

Blue skies

Drained
Shallow deep

Confusion speaks

Terror fear

Understanding 

Dispair
Holding on 

To the song of joy

Of peace 

I held onto 

From before
Remembering 

I have only one 

Higher power

Who is all knowing

Not human
Its times like this 

I take out my violin

Play strings 

And cords

Feel my soul
Play the four stanzas 

Feel the holiness

Enter my room

Enter my apartment

Filling the void

Like a vaccume
I bless you all

With peace

Joy

Love

Happiness

Light

Serenity
Amen!

Trusting G-d

Dear G-d,
I know your with me

Right now

And always
I know you’d 

Be here 

To wipe my tears

To calm my fears

You are here always

I just don’t feel you

Always

Your gentle 

Presence

Pain 

Is sharper

Sometimes

Then my knowledge

Of you

But I am determined

To hold on

To my trust

In you Oh G-d

I will let go

And let you 

Fix the world

Run it 

In the way 

You’ve done so 

Well 

Till now

Peace

Search For Clarity 

G-d 

Play those tapes

Shape 

My soul
Write your script

And let you players

Fill your molds
Let your angels sing

In despair

Hovering over 

Where here
Let me cut the rope

Of control

Let go 

Of the thoughts

The fears

Of getting hurt
Let my dreams 

Drive me

Fill me with life
Let the truth lie

Within the depths 

Of my soul
Goals be filled 

With everlasting 

Sweetness
Vision

Reality

Toil

Sensitivity 
Let me mourn 

And move on

Let me make mistakes

And get stronger
Live lighter

Unhook from problems 

And solve mysteries

Challenges
Let my soul 

Crave knowledge of your will

Oh G-d
Let my soul thirst 

For you

Thirsting for knowledge

For humility

To see your 

Truth

Your grace
Your hand 

Holding me 

Even when inside 

I feel so alone

When I feel like

The world 

Is against me
Like my efforts 

Go into an empty void

Oh G-d 

It’s your world

I am doing 

Your mission

So give me strength

To do the task

You gave me

Good Life

Summer

Makes my eyes shine

The sun 

Brings me happiness

It gives me

Freedom

To run in the grass

Climb those trees

Ride my bike

Paddle my boat

I miss you summer

I cant wait for you to be back
Now back to the cold

I guess I can do some Journaling

And painting

And play my piano

And violin

And dance

To my fav music

And spend time with 

My good friends and 

Loving family
So much good 

In my life:-)

New poetry video

​Yippee! I made a video of me reading my unity (3 weeks) poem with expression and rythym:-)
Link to video: https://youtu.be/V5bQF4IpXZA
Now is the the 3 weeks which many years ago the Holy Temple was being destroyed so I try not to listen to music but it’s really hard for me. I tried to express in this poem how I feel often in the 3 weeks.
Unity
Music is my Oxygen,

It’s like my blood,

Pumps my heart,

It’s my love
So the lack 

There of 

At this time 

So long
It pushes me 

Backwards 

As I lean forward now

I see the world
I see it dry

I see it cold

How different 

Untold 
It’s what I’ll sacrifice 

For the pain

The mourning 

Of my ancestors 
It’s how I look 

Into myself 

And feel 

The destruction
And though 

You may not know 

What I’m saying
It’s the Holy Temple

Which was burning 

In flames

Ashes 
Three weeks 

It all took

While the world shook
G-d’s home

Below

Was gone

None to show
Just deep pain 

And shock 

So many slain
And some say 

The trigger was

Lack of unity

Lack of love
So let’s hold hands

Lets proclaim 

We will unite

And sanctify

G-d’s holy name
We will hold strong

And sing this song

Of unity and love

Just because
To fill the void

The pain

Un-named

Amen
