We’re Alive

Nevermind what you said

Nevermind what you did

Honey, I choose love.

 

Nevermind what happened

Nevermind what we had to go through

My love, I choose us.

 

Here and now

I stand with faith.

For You and I,

A path illuminates.

 

All is forgiven

For there is only love.

All is forgotten

For we are intoxicated with love.

 

We’ll get through all the moments

Of nail biting anxiety,

As the action movie of our lives

Will bring more challenges, I guarantee.

 

So flow into me, my darling

Together life has begun

We’re alright, we’re alive

We’ve survived, we’re eternal love.

Glue

People do things.

Stupid things.

Destructive things.

But everything can be forgiven – 

Perhaps not forgotten.

Everything can be worked upon.

And healed.

Before you know it,

You’ve gotten through another hurdle.

Together, emerges stronger than ever.

– Ramona Arena, 21st December 2015.

Good Morning Heart of Mine.

Good morning heart of mine,
I wonder if you’d fancy a walk with me,
On cobblestone roads, secret wooden paths
Illuminated by the warmest rays, piercing through leaves and bark.

Where gentle, the breeze of silence,
Promises you undivided attention,
Where serenity grants you security
To unabashedly reveal your affliction.

I’d like to hold you if you’d let me
So I can lead you to trust
It’s a place where you’ll be loved for who you are,
Not for what or for benefit or lust.

Abuse was only a teacher,
That showed up to help you grow
But you seem to be touched so deeply by her,
You refuse to let her go.

Believe again oh dear sweet heart,
Plant seeds of forgiveness and fly,
Amongst the eucalyptus and wild chamomile,
Dance forth to the beat of your own creation,
For you are still alive!

Yes.


To all the flaky people in my life
This one is for you
You think I don’t know who you are
So sorry, but I didn’t get fooled.

For the times you did pretend,
To be my friend,
Taking as much as you could.
For the times you wished me ill,
Secretly hoping
I’d fall to the ground as you stood.

For the hidden hopes
You harbored within;
For me to give up and fail.
For taking all you could
By sucking me dry;
For your own entertainment and gain.

For all the lies you spread about me
Swearing to the world its true.
For all the gains you used me for
I still gave as I saw through.

I’m really not half as stupid or blind
As you like to believe is true.
I choose to keep giving, hoping and forgiving
The insecurities that you’ve been reduced to.

I’ve obviously done something right in my life
To have made it so relevant to yours.
Thanks for your efforts, I’m way stronger now
May your life find real purpose, a true cause.
