Oath of trust

Monday 18 February 2008 4 responses

I am the light in the shadows.

I am the vessel to housed the spirit of kindness and trust.

I am the rock that balance's
the gift of friendship between
two souls.

I am the honor that binds the
faith and trust you have in me.

And finally, you are the mirror
that reflect me and I am the mirror
that reflect you, be at peace
my friend.

A Significant Day for Australia

WITH just 361 words, the Federal Parliament will today seek to heal the hurt caused by past decades of state-sponsored ill-treatment of all indigenous Australians - not just those forcibly removed as children from their families.

More than 10 years since the story of the stolen generations was told in the Bringing Them Home report, the declaration of the apology will usher in a new era of recognition and reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous Australia.

The Reason Why

Friday 8 February 2008 0 responses

It's more than passion..

The melting of two bodies..

Bonding to become one..

It's the site of her..

Standing with wry smile..

Eyes lit with a twinkle..

It's the sound of her stirring..

In the back ground with a hum..

Of her favorite song...

It's the scent of her...

that whiff of woman and perfume..

When you come in the door...

It's the look of concentration..

She has with eyebrows bent..

A touch of her hand given with out thought..

It's all of this and more...

That stirs your heart and moves the soul...

Road of legacy

Monday 4 February 2008 4 responses

I walked down a road, a path
to discovers my roots, my plans,
my own soul.

I look around to see others peoples
with others dreams in their hearts.
Some to befriend me, others
to teach me and others yet to

The past, the present and future,
have no meaning here, time
stopped and space vaste.
Looking for answers to understand myself and the world around me.

I may never get the answers that I seek but I know this, this path I take, I leave behind seed of my life so one day they will grow to be trees of knowleged and give people renewed strengh to seek out their dream.

That is the legacy I leave behind, HOPE and COURAGE.
