"It's best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes."
"I tell you the past is a bucket of ashes, so live not in your yesterdays, no just for tomorrow, but in the here and now. Keep moving and forget the post mortems; and remember, no one can get the jump on the future."
"That which you create in beauty and goodness and truth lives on for all time to come. Don't spend your life accumulating material objects that will only turn to dust and ashes."
I have returned from the underworld
Paid the fare with my heart
I crossed the river sorrow on a boat made of feathers
Soft & humble love lifted those wings
beyond the shadowed lands
carried me on the winds
Released me from the cloak of darkness
while I slept in your arms
bound by your deception
tied by your hands
hands that created
the most beautiful charms
how they warned me
I was blinded by your love
by your stories
by your presence
My devotion carried me on soft wings
through the primordial fog
Deep into the core
where universes are birthed in flame
and stars are born.
