The Beauty of Now

beauty now marvia davidsonI love the writing community, Story Sessions!  Women are taking up their brave on a daily basis, owning the beauty of brokenness, and sharing the story – healing words spilling from their souls.  These words are beautiful.  I met Jamie through Story Sessions and as a part of Story 201.  She has been a shoulder of calm and confidence.  She has inspired me to keep pressing in to the business of finishing out my memoir.

I know you will be encouraged by her poetic words on pressing in to the Beauty of Now.  And please take a listen to her lovely, musical rendition.

The Beauty of Now

One day
I was carried away
Into a world on a screen.
I gazed in suspense
And I held my breath
Waiting for the next scene.
Suspended oxygen
For the time in between
A dramatic resolution.

Breathe in, and find your rhythm.
Breathe out, and find your freedom.

Don’t hold your breath for a better time than today.
I know it’s hard- things won’t always be this way.
Time is moving and change is sure.
The beauty of now is worth searching for.

A girl trapped
Behind the glass-
“Free me!” is there in her eyes.
She’s holding it in,
Shrinking back in her skin,
Hoping I’ll recognize
I’m the one to set her free
To breathe out, breathe in,
Because that girl is me.

Breathe in, and find your rhythm.
Breathe out, and find your freedom.

Don’t hold your breath for a better time than today.
I know it’s hard- things won’t always be this way.
Time is moving and change is sure.
The beauty of now is worth searching for.
