Orange Colored Poetry
By Clara Hembree

 

 

God speed. When the obscured path is revealed. Each step leads to the next like a well-rehearsed ballet. With your purpose determined and your intention clear, you bear in mind the ideal image of prayer. The water flows with you, the birds speak to you, and all of nature becomes your kingdom although you don’t rule anything. While you are realizing this, wishes in the air whisper to your subconscious “All humanity can feel God speed. All of it.”

You know there’s a bowl inside each of us that holds our happiness. But there’s so much pain on the top; it will take such a long time and so much work to get to the good stuff. But if you really want to be satisfied, the bottom of the bowl is what you’ll see. They say the bottom of the bowl is endless, so lets drink up! And pray for God speed.

Velocity

Pray for velocity
Pray for velocity
I don’t want anything from you
I’m digging up my own
Wish you could be here now
Digging up your own
No one can see you now
Rate you on how deep you go
I don’t want anything from you
I’m digging up my own
And I pray for velocity
Pray for velocity
