Hendrix and Havens - my soul rejoices, happiness is mine

Sat, 09/27/2014 - 14:46 -- munnfan


School Monday through Friday

Work Friday through Monday

Chores at home seven days a weeks

Never a day off, never a day away

Senior year the best year ever?  Oh the lies!!!!  

My future my future, yes I understand.  But get off my back.  I've started to lose myself.  

Not allowed to stop, not allowed breathe from 6 a.m. until vet school graduation

Nine years of not breathing

That might be tough

So I stop

I have a magic time

I found my joy

I lock my door and I light my incense

I breathe

Jimi Hendrix, Richie Havens, my personal medation guides

Incense and those guitars - restoration, peace

Voices of deep love and hope, you know me

I pick up my guitar and I play along

I hear their notes; it's as though they have come from the past to guide my fingers

They have taught me well

I know all the words and I sing

In my mind, we are Hendrix and Havens and Henderson

They play and I play and the universe relaxes

I am happy

I have found myself again

I am reborn

I have peace

I am happy
