If You Ask the Silence

I’ve learned to breathe fire.

Do you ever scream into the world, the silence, the noise, universe, all of creation,
“INSPIRE ME!”
And it whispers back,
“Open your eyes.”

Sometimes I forget that inspiration is already here, right here. Everywhere I want to find it. All I have to do is open my mind to it, search it out.

There is no defining moment. We must break free, we must live, of our own accord, designing each breath with the purpose of our souls.

And don’t you ever forget it.
When you do, you lose a small piece of yourself, that joy, that intangible happiness you cannot express via anything but a smile, the all exuding ‘this moment is perfect’ glow. It’s rare, decide it is important to you.
Hope.

The world doesn’t wait on us. Die, and it continues on.
But it watches. It knows.
If you could ask the silence what it hears of you, what would it say?

Poignancy isn’t a monster. It’s a guide. Sweet isn’t vibrant unless the pangs of adversity first show you sour.
You can find beauty in everything. If you look. Use it.

Don’t be blind to what is in front of you, surrounding you, filling you.
If you’re broken, pick up the pieces you like and create others.
It is impossible to be saved in ignorance.

Become you. Find you. Create you. It’s all the same.
You remain ever changing.

Open your eyes to the flame inside, all around.
You are good enough.
Decide you are important.

Smile.
Find a way to mean it.
Open your eyes to the inspiration surrounding and within you.
Don’t fall at the wayside, cold and automated, a product of those around you, using you, molding you.
Breathe fire into your soul, your life.

I’ve learned to breathe fire.

Do you ever scream into the world, the silence, the noise, universe, all of creation,
“INSPIRE ME!”
And it whispers back,
“Open your eyes.”

“Tomorrow you promise yourself will be different, yet tomorrow is too often a repetition of today.” – James T. McKay

Do you embrace inspiration or sometimes forget to see it?
