Possibilities by Jennifer Bloom.

Poet, singer and scholar Jennifer Bloom, shares powerful messages delivered with clarity and deep meaning. I invite you to sit back and enjoy this writing as sung by the author. May you take a moment to look for your rainbows today.

This poem is a powerful message that demonstrates how humans  create a concept of themselves based on the  experience of the caregivers or in this case the lack of caregivers in our lives. It speaks to how we can chose to pay attention to what serves us.

Poet’s EMOTIONAL Letter To His Dad MISSING From His Life!
Brandon Leake

Whilst not a poem, this writing invites us to reflect deeply…

Stories are not abstractions from life but how we engage with it. We make stories and those stories make us human. We awaken into stories as we awaken into language, which is there before and after us. The question is not so much “What do I learn from stories?” as “What stories do I want to live?”.

Insofar as I’m nondual with my narratives, that question is just as much,
“What stories want to come to life through me?”
