Where is Freedom to be Found?

Fear is binding
Yet fear shall not bind me
Peace is the keeper who's only employed position
Is to free those that are bound
Our only limitation
Is our inability to sustain inner peace
We have all tasted it at one point
But to welcome it in
And entertain it through any imposing storm
Is strength
That strength begins at the heart of
Perfect Love for
Ourselves, our situations and all of those
That we share it with
Living this is FREEDOM!

Does my life mean anything to anyone

I may not be everything to everyone nor nothing to no one but at the very least I know I am something to at least someone and that one is me!

Battles of the Mind....STAR TESTING

Pads of silence
Panters of glares
Hoping for retrieval
Gasping for air
Fletching of shields
To guide the light
Swords deface
To shield the fright
Treading softly
Loftily so
Yearning for victory
While enemy in tow
Breathes chill hearts
Awaken the neck
Capture their grimace
On this destructive trek
The foe became friend as the end did near
As the enemy lines woefully veered
No one had thought with test in hand
This fractured mind could conquer the land
Student and test could have become one
If they had entered a truce before the game had begun

One day, oh it was quite a late one, I saw a turtle strolling down the street with a roll in his step. His neck had a permanent crick for it was so rigid from fearing his past for so long. As days passed, he no longer looked into his past with fear and soon not long after he stopped looking back all together. It hurt so he stopped. He decided to only face what trampled in front of his path and as soon as it passed, so did his memory of it. This freed turtle up so much so that he noticed not much held him back. The weight of his shell seemed to lighten. Friends began to see a change in him. His gate changed from a hobble to more of a glide. Soon, he was so free flowing in his movements through life that he went places he never could have before. He was finally able to flail past the rabbits that have taunted him for so long. But, soon, life seem to be passing by so quickly. Turtle was not seeing or hearing much, just rushing around because he could. Moving so fast made his life a bit shallow and cold, so he chose to slow and glide with the creatures that had evaded him not so long ago. Friendships were made, laughter exchanged and soon turtle found himself free to be anything he wanted, most of all to just be and smile. For living in the now requires one to pace their moments, enjoy them for what they are and let them go so you can wring out the joy of the moment that is yet to come!
