In Remembrance

Enlarge poem

In Remembrance of my ancestors
I seize the day

In Remembrance of my ancestors
I heal the pain

In Remembrance of my ancestors
I find a way
The way to my heart
That was once lost
In the skies above

Queen Lariuskus

Featured Poem:

I Am

Enlarge poem

I am the Queen
The King
The Boss
Of my own,
In my own… piece of land
Piece of land which represents the Universe
For it is what I represent… I am the Universe
I am the Universe
A lifelong book filled with new possibilities
Enough faith in the world to push it forward
Monster mind which elaborates love, love and love
For I am what I think I am

Love is the truth
Love is the answer
Love is the secret never revealed,
for it can never be revealed
… love is what we experience inside when,
when a stranger smiles at us when we need a friend
Love is so great and in the same way mysterious that mankind’s symbology
cannot yet truly define it
And maybe it will never be truly defined by mankind

Why do we tend to define, structure and/or categorise every single thing
that comes our way, which suddenly happens to us?

Love, life
Life, love
Have no definition
No structure,
No category
it’s all about living in love and loving your life.
