Fire Walking


I've walked on coals
during fiery times
in homelessness, sickness
and hopelessness
of drink and unthinkable actions
( my own and others)

But Ive always had this certain
contentment- an inner peace
that what was now 
wouldn't be my tomorrow 

And when relationships
went wrong, and dirty
I sailed along on a new song.
People are imperfect as I am.

Nothing can be all rain
all of the time….
turn your umbrella upside down
dance in the puddles…
take a walk down the sunny side
and when the heats on,
well baby, pull up the shade...

What matters most is
how well you 
walk through the fire.
