Life Journey – Born to Love and Learn

What is love if not for appreciation of all life forms,
And to know the one soul who can add so much
Beauty and the deepest of tender caring
To heart and soul, whether in physical life or in the spirit,
We all appreciate that one person who can help us
Be all we can be, to grow ever more spiritual
In body, mind and soul.

To be in touch with nature is part of
My spiritual growth and peace of mind,
For it is in nature where the Mother
Shows us harmony and balance,
To help us live a full life of love and kindness,
It is love and kindness, the core of life,
Which puts us in touch with our Self and all others

We were all born to love and learn as we travel
Along on our life journey,
We are all in this together, for we are all one,
All part of this chance to learn, love and grow,
We may take different paths, each to our own,
Yet the destination is the same,
To reach the end of this life with more wisdom.

Our life may be fraught with anxiety and stress,
Or other undesirable events. sorrow and loss,
Yet if we fear not death and embrace life,
Then we can live each moment of each day,
With the inner knowledge we are accepting
The lessons we need to learn,
To become all we can be, in physical and spiritual life.

Tony’s poem, Fear Not Death and Embrace Life, is the inspiration for this poem of mine.

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
