There Is A Force

Recommended Posts


There Is A Force

Within each of us never dormant there beats a heart

That keeps us alive but as for living it is just the start

There is a force that wells up from within each human the young and old

The meek and the heroic it does not matter if you are fearsome to behold

The simple fact is that there is within each a burning desire

And it is this force that always kindles and maintains the fire

You have heard tales of someone who burns so bright

That their very presence lights up the darkest night

What is it that sets them apart from me and you

While we sit and make plans to try they only do

How do we become these fearless types full of flame

While we sit doing nothing just being timid and tame

Look deep within yourself find what it is that you truly desire

Realize that it is all up to you for there is no one you can hire

You alone possess the fire that essential component to kick start the drive

Enabling the engines of life to move you from mere existence to being alive

Your lungs have always breathed in the air

You can feel all of that power so take care

The first steps are tricky and might cause you to stumble

Do not stop with just one misstep to lie there and grumble

You must press on for the stakes are far too high

Stay bound to Earth or choose to soar to the sky

That fire has burned within you and caused wonder as a child

But as adults we bank it forget it and fear that it might run wild

Rekindle that flame for it is the link to the past

To childhood and those wondrous days at last

The fire is an extension of a flame that was burning before we arrived

It has laid dormant in so many breaking out in only enough to survive

Let loose the powers of the ancient world where we dared to explore

Find new challenges and conquering one always searching for more

The mind of a child does not know of fear or how to fail

Taught by their parents to be meek to be afraid and frail

Look at your feet and remove those heavy shackles and run

Never stopping to think of what might go wrong just have fun

Living life as though still a child

Thoughts of wonder running wild

We all have within us the power to be kings

But so much better if put to simpler things

No need to fight for power or for wealth or for fame

Looking forward to each day for no two are the same

Love ya,

      Good morning everyone,🐈   Happy birthday STACIELEELAH! Hope you have a terrific day!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf 🐾

      I think I'll do it. I'm overdue a check up anyway having missed a couple of regular appointments because of Covid etc.

      Put on a shirt girl! This isn't that kind of site!   You look fine. I've seen cis women that look less like a woman than you do while I'm out running errands. With a little makeup, you could be a knockout.   Hugs!

      Shawna is magic? What did you have to rub? (Suggestive eyebrow wiggle.)   I'm not sure what the situation is out West, but I hope you get a sympathetic judge. The kind that says, "And?" when your wife starts outing you like it makes you some kind of monster. I've only heard bits and pieces but your ex... she sounds like a real piece of work. Good luck! Fingers crossed!   Hugs!

      I've heard that you can lose a little because of spine curvature from a rotating pelvis, but three inches seems like a lot (insert crude joke here). I'd get myself checked out just to be sure.   Hugs!

      That's unacceptable behavior @_x.anime.x. Vicky is absolutely right. You were assaulted by someone who should have been loving, supportive and accepting. You're better off without him.   Might I suggest a therapist or a sexual assault survivors support group? I'm on the wrong side of the Atlantic, so I don't really know what's available in your area. The big takeaway is that this is all on him. You were frightened and you were attacked. You didn't do anything wrong. He's the bad guy.   We're always here if you need to talk (in a PG-13 manner because rules).   Hugs!

      I have got a degenerative spinal condition that my doctor knows about. 3" is a lot to lose in seven months though. Nobody told me to expect anything like it.   Maybe I should make a GP appointment to see if they can tell me what's going on.

      The early days were hard for me.  Most folks were great but a few were a bit of a pain despite all i could do or explain.  Susan is spot on.  A bit of time was all it took and then i was just another person and no longer an oddity.  Hang in there it seems you are doing everything right!  One day you will realize its no longer an issue at all.   Hugs,   Charlize

      thank you Kay  have to tell you a little story about  Kansas  the first time i saw them was not longer after their first album. they and Queen were double billed at my college U of Toledo. i was working on the college newspaper and guitarist Ric Williams came in our office asking how to get to the dressing room. we told him and as he was walking out, a drunk college kid asked him where the bathroom was and he told him to just stand in the corner of the hall and piss. no onw would notice .

      i am crying because the support you ladies are ging me...and it is too early to be coming from the hrt....it is coming from my heart tgat is mending because of you. Thank you so much and mental hugs, Heather Shay

      I am pretty sure I want to start HRT at some point (but therapy first).  I am currently not considering bottom surgery but I assume it could possibly change later.  I am more like @SaraAW and that I would want to be on HRT long enough to feel/see the results before I commit beyond. But great question Shay.  Thanks for asking!   One of my all time favorite bands.  I saw them in concert back in the 70s in their heyday.  It was awesome❣️
    • Shay
      you are on your way... oncw i bottomed out and realized i need to love myself before i could love others i think the aura of that drew others to me and things got better and thank god for that or i am certain i would no longer be on planet earth. i am so glad to hear your progress.  mental hugs, Shay (Heather)

      Did someone take a few inches out of the middle of your tape?  Over years (72) i've lost perhaps an inch due to aging and spine compression.  I have never heard of skeletal changes due to HRT.  I would recommend seeing your doctor as this is perhaps a medical issue.   Hugs,   Charlize
