When Something Feels Right

If you are human, most people know the difference between right and wrong. And if you are lucky enough to get to be my age, you have done things that you knew felt wrong. The flip-side of that coin you gain experience and you know when something feels right. Often from taking the wrong path sometimes we have put up personal walls to protect ourselves. We don’t want to get hurt, and we get jaded in our feelings. Hopefully, you understand the walls you have constructed to protect yourself can also stop you from following your feelings when something feels right. You need to trust the vibes you get—energy does not lie.

When Something Feels Right
When something feels so good, feels so right,
Lower that personal wall and give up the fight.
Don’t think; more often than not it complicates things,
Free your heart – give your inner soul angel like wings.
When something feels right—it is something to look at,
If it feels like home—you need to go with that.
People souls do not have calendars or a clock,
Embrace the feeling, enjoy the ride, let it rock.
Your soul, their soul know nothing of time or distance,
Enjoy the discovery, the journey, give up the resistance.
Nothing is ever wrong if it feels so good,
When it feels right run with it—you really should.
Do in your heart what you feel to be right,
Free your thoughts and let your feelings take flight.
Take off that mask that you want others to see,
When something feels right—go with it—that is the key.
If you let it, often it is an inner sight that will direct you,
When something feels right—let those feeling come through.
When something feels so good, feels so right,
Lower that personal wall and give up the fight.

    Kurt I would like to apply this poem to my feelings towards TCE. Awhile ago, I want to say a few years now, I decided that this group of writers was where I belonged. I felt in my heart that this was the perfect fit and right for me. I am sticking with my heart and breaking down a few walls and writing my heart out. Thank you for this poem.. Jamie

    I have to agree Kurt. if something feels right it usually is. Don’t question it, just go for it. Though on the other side of the coin there is the saying “if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.” Good write as always.
