Within

Within - Jina Wallwork

In times of difficulty I look deep within myself, because I know there I will find a light. I can see it glow within each person that surrounds me and I know they would offer me their illumination, to guide me through the night. However, their light contains its own direction and I cannot be sure whether it is right for me. So I sit within the darkness searching for my inner light and within the heart of my being I locate my navigator.

The Line

The Line - Jina Wallwork

I will not be silenced. My expression will not be contained within a tomb. Give my integrity the space to breathe, so my speech can rise higher than a whisper. I cannot be asked to alter my words because I am revealing my personal truth. You cannot ask me to cease, because this is who I am.  Every cell within my body will resist the silence, joining the front line, they will fight. Peaceful but resolute they will form a line that you cannot cross, because everyone must have the freedom to speak.

The Folds of a Rainbow

The Folds of a Rainbow - Jina Wallwork

There are dark days when it appears as though the storm will never end. We travel onward facing each obstacle, struggling to overcome every challenge. Tears fall like rain but we must accept that times of sorrow are necessary, if we are to experience a life full of diversity. 

Every Storm eventually comes to an end. As the clouds part we stand within the wisdom we have obtained, knowing that we have grown to become something more. As peace enters our life, we unfold our newly found wisdom, allowing it to stretch across the sky. The storm is over and the rainbow stretches beyond every sound we make. Express this new growth because every storm might lead to a rainbow; every difficulty might lead to a new understanding. Within the folds of a rainbow is the pure gold of true wisdom.
