anderkant die stilte

18 Junie 2009

Tyd. Stilstaan. Omdraai en weer begin.
Terug na God.
Terug na myself.

Ek slaan my oë op na die berge,
waar sal my hulp vandaan kom?

Van die Here.
Van Hom alleen.

ek wou seker wees voordat ek op hierdie punt kom
soos met ander groot besluite wat ek moes neem
ek kan nie nou stop en onthou nie
ek kan nie nou sin of rede probeer vind nie
no regrets
geen hoekom
geen nostalgie
net vergeet
sluit die gedagtes
girdle up en lewe!

Weer ‘n oorbegin.
Al verskil hierdie keer is dat alles verskil.
So, ek hoef nie te vergelyk nie,
Want hierdie is voor.
Daar is niks om te volg nie,
Niks wat ek doelbewus najaag nie.
Net ruimte vir vrede,
En nog ‘n groter ruimte vir myself.

van mense, van bure,
van self-opgelegde bande,
van skuldgevoelens,
net okay.

i am not ready,
dis al

2 Januarie 2013

Vandag voel dit asof die hekke van my siel oopstaan.
Asof ek weer in voeling kom en kans sien.
Ek wil dinge van nou af anders doen,
Meer authentic.
Nuwe alignment.
Accountable, reflective, curious.

As dit nie vir ander mense se woorde was nie, het ek vandag nog probeer om myself uit te figure…hier is ‘n paar favourites…
