Will You Ever Be Enough..

far away ~
long gone
my father
comes to me
in dreams
whispering reminders
of my compromises
and my failings

shall I be pleased
that he still cares
enough
to nudge me
beyond my fears
or will I allow
the waves of my inadequacies
churned into a froth
by his memory
wash over me
leaving me half-drowned
and gasping
clinging tenaciously
to my small accomplishments
against the receding years
pulling at my life

will I ever be enough
in his brown dominant eyes
or in my own
recessive blues
almost 60 years later
haunted still by
the measure of
whom he believed
I should be
and my own yearning
to be worthy

The only difference is in our sleeping state format we view our dreams thru the eyes of our soul. Which in my experience sometimes feels like I’m looking at one of those ornament water…

Challenge, Faith, and Inner Conviction

Challenge, Faith, and Inner Conviction

Challenge in the dictionary has many meanings. One of them says, an invitation to a contest or trial of any kind. It is interesting that in the midst of a challenge, it is hard for us to remember that it is an invitation. An invitation rather than a threatening, unwanted reality, which ultimately will define…
