i see a path
so clear now that
these tears only serve to
magnify the sight

once they would have
drowned me for
my lack of vision

Love is the poetry of direction.

© Tamara Natividad | | Written 18 January, 2013


Each branch
of my life-giving tree
provides a path
my heart can follow

where its direction
and connecting purpose
lead outward (always)
to infinite beauty:

to a scope beyond that
which its blind roots
and captured leaves
might only dream exists

“When there is nowhere to begin, it helps to reason why one should even start. A direction is never clear at first since it’s all expansive and all encompassing – the narrowing of ideas is what creates a path. Taking the first step to anywhere for any reason, is reason enough for any creator to begin whatever it is that one’s potential decides to exhibit.”

The only path that one should follow is wherever one’s path does lead.

One can’t look ahead if being behind is blinding.
