Living

Written by: Gale Greenwood

Great is my desire to know this life
of passionate days under a golden light.
Walking in to arms that are held wide open,
I believe there is an acceptance which is as deep as the ocean.
With my heart breaking free, I am now ready to feel
single moments of release while I stay true to my belief.
Rejecting a past that had turned sour the mind
with learned perceptions from spoken words delivered and unkind.

What is the cost to find this place?
It is a race I endeavor to finish with grace.
Where my dreams are fulfilled under the eyes of a lover,
and the world remains open ready to be discovered.
Giving and taking come in equal measure
with a treasure received from the found eagle’s feather.
In surrendering to this desire I am gaining on this life,
riding passionate waves found under the moon light.
