Everyone Who's Anyone Judges Everyone


These people;
Those people;
We the people
Are just people -
Red and yellow,
Black and White -
Judging everyone in sight.

On Fulfilling My Life's Purpose


Somewhere between here and where,
The truth is hushed tonight.
Sometime between now and when,
I know I'll see the light.
Somehow between who and what,
It will fall into place.
Someday between because and why,
You'll see it on my face.

Living Like Sea Glass

Living Like Sea Glass
by Rachel Hoyt

image by Rachel Hoyt

Right now I live between the waves
Of hope and desperation,
Biding my time amongst the grime;
Dreaming of destination.

My edges are still a bit rough,
Some surfaces unpolished.
I feel as if I've had enough,
Like hope's all but abolished.

But, sometimes, in between the waves,
I catch a glimpse of light -
A sign that timing is divine;
Of nature's perfect sight.

I know someday a storm will come
To push me to the surface
And I'll shine underneath the sun
With perfectly imperfect purpose.
