End All Fear
It's crystal clear why I am here
I am here to end all fear and
Like an eagle.....Soar
was born in scarcity
Conceived in pain and doubt.
The doctors pulled and yanked at me
I was sorry I came out.
For years to come
I did resent the childhood days I
With scarcity, pain and doubt,
They never did relent.
Now, I know it's not their fault
they gave but what they had...
Yet I was filled with
a love and truth
unknown to mom and dad.
For years, my love and truth and I
withdrew into my room.
Holding back the gifts I had was like
living in a tomb.
A Voice spoke through my dream
said: "Life is but a play; and the morale
the story is not the role
But the way in which it's played.
Now, it's crystal clear to me,
I remember why
To share my love and truth with you
Put an End to Fear.
Perlie On Safari: A Short Story about Her Adventures
Perlie woke up wondering what character she could be today.
up with a brilliant idea as she was listening to and
watching T.V. while eating breakfast. A program about
adventure trip, known as a safari, which includes seeing and
experiencing members of the plant and animal kingdoms,
her attention. Perlie thought: "Gee, I'd like to go on a safari trip to
a far away place and see
many animals, forests and plants." As she
was getting ready to dive into her preparation for her fantasy
and engage with this pretend world, Perlie was enjoying the music
associated with this special televised program.
She was wondering
if music plays a part in safaris, or if it was just an additional feature
of the program
in order to attract viewers. Perlie came to the
conclusion that music was for advertisement purposes, to attract
audience attention. Now that she is ready for her fantasy life, she'll
have fun going on a surfing safari
for starters on the clear waters of
Australia, the "Land Down Under." She is having a good time shopping
for some bikini swimsuits to wear; she found what she was looking for,
all three of them, purple, red and blue
ones. Perlie's favorite bikini is
the blue one, so she'll wear it going to Australia's seashore. The Quantas
airline trip was lots of fun for her; it took nine hours to get there from
Hawaii though, but there was food and entertainment
on the plane.
Perlie watched closed circuit T.V. and movies, ate pasta and salad,
had iced tea and read some
magazines, so she would not become bored,
even though she had a window seat, since there weren't very many
on this flight. After this plane trip, Perlie's eyes opened wide
when she first saw the beauty of Australia. It's
forests, plant life, flowers,
red soil, and animals, such as kangaroos roaming about, were magnificent,
it's oceans and shorelines. She picked up a few pretty sea shells from
the wet sandy beach and heard the Beach
Boys' rock and roll hit from a nearby
radio," Surfing Safari."
Perlie's Safari continues!

Perlie was thinking about this song as it was long over with;
Surfing Now, Everybody's Learning How, Come On Let's Safari With Me."
This stayed with
Perlie; she loved the words or lyrics and melody. It
really fit the occasion of what she was about to do soon. She asked some
beachcomers which areas were best for
surfing and where to rent her
surfboard. Once she got her answers, she was on her way to fun in the
a glorious vacation time. Perlie tested the water with her feet
to see how warm it was, and to her surprise, she
was delighted. It was
comfortably warm, just right for surfing and swimming. She was
watching the huge
waves and thought they would be a good place
to start with her surfboard. There were no warning signs posted
about shark dangers or no swimming, so she was thankful for that.
soon as she walked into the water, she found a calm area before
a wave and got onto her surfboard and began "shooting
or "surfing safari", in other words. Perlie was having so much fun
riding the the waves;
spending hours each day on her vacation
doing this was so joyful to her. She didn't want to do anything else.
When the waves did break, she managed to swim in between each time
she surfed, or "hung ten", as another way of saying it. Realizing
only one more week left of her vacation, she wanted
to see the other side
of Australian life - plants and animals.
So she figured she could always go
surfing back home in Hawaii, when she returns there......to
