vatic voice

once we have acknowledged our responsibility
owned authorship of every action and word

only then will we be inspired to learn and grow
for knowing our own mind and emotions

is authentic emotional maturity
as we become kinder to ourselves

and each other
we live in harmony

totally at ease
for anything less is dis ease

it disturbs our sleep and our psyche
yet still we repeat our errors

blaming this and that
time to drop the façade

become genuinely caring
for when in harmony with ourselves

nature and each other
then our world will flourish

greed hatred and insecurity will abate
love harmony and trust grows!

d’Verse, Vatic voice, Lisa – this how I try to live my life and pray others may also see the sense of it!


  1. “totally at ease
    for anything less is dis ease” ..this hits me kate… so true.. if you can only see me nodding here and smiling…
    thanks to poetry and to all my lovely poet friends like you, this lockdown/pandemic journey has become easier.

  2. Everything you write is so true, Kate, and something that the human race should have learnt by now. Sadly, there are those who only think of themselves, of what they are entitled to, and never acknowledge responsibility – small-minded human beings who never learn and grow. That disease is worse than the corona virus and helps to perpetrate it. We must love them all the more to show them how it’s done.

  3. I, too, try to live this way…no other way works for me. And it does bring peace. 🙂
    We must love ourselves, treat ourselves, and talk to ourselves like we do to those people we love the mostest. 🙂 When we love ourselves, we can love others even more…even better than before! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  4. I love the message coming through here through your Vatic voice: we need to take responsibility for ourselves and our actions, love ourselves enough to do this and miraculously we will find that we can share that love with others!

  5. Disease is literally the lack of ease. When disease is present in mind or body we find ourselves at odd with the world… All of humanity, from the earliest recorded times, has been in search of means to put us back in balance. We’ve tried everything from drilling holes in skulls and letting blood to prayer and ingesting herbal concoctions. We are still searching with pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, crystals, meditation, acupuncture, diets and distraction. There is no one right way that works for everyone. Seems to me we’ve come up short. Perhaps we should try love for a change… I’m willing to give it a try!

  6. Yes, yes, yes! Emotional maturity is vital to love and trust. As well, peace. It really comes full circle with that idea, since emotional maturity means the capability of being rational, taking responsibility for our actions, and learning from our mistakes to be able to grow. You describe this perfectly in its essence. Fantastic piece!

  7. Kate, your poem is a framework for peace and contentment. The baggage of fear and always looking to the future as if we can know what’s going to happen — we can’t — drains a lot of energy that can be applied to that unflinching look in the mirror. I raise a glass to you. Cheers!
