“Be strong my warrior, be strong”

I wrote a little poetry today. Definitely something new for me and yet something I felt inspired to do. So here it goes….

“Be strong my warrior, be strong” 
Listen to the whispers of the wind and let it blow your worries away. 

Adapt to the life of a tree. Stand firmly grounded but remain flexible without breaking so that you can bend and sway with the times, weathering life’s lashes while reaching for the heavens. 

Listen to the rhythmic waves of the ocean and let them calm your soul in the same manner they will give you the strength to embrace violent crashes ahead. 

“Be strong my warrior, be strong”

Allow yourself to feel the sunshine and enjoy the warmth on your skin. Let it fill your heart with peace and soothe your mind. Let her be your guardian to always keep within your heart and to create an environment that will never allow an iceberg to grow. May your heart stay warm and strong against the fight of hardening, of becoming bitter, of becoming ice cold with nothing left to feel. 

May the air you breathe, inhale hope with every breath and fill your soul with wonder and magic. 

And finally, let Mother Earth allow you to always feel connected. Let her remind you of your wild and wolffish nature, for you are unique and a force to be reckoned with.

“Be strong my warrior, be strong”


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Your writings have always reflected how positive and gentle a soul you are. This poem will definitely instil a courageous vibe among all those who are undergoing some sort of rough patch in life. Very inspiring words. “I will try to be a strong warrior, my friend, I will try”.

    1. Thank you very much Sherry, your kind words mean a lot. We all encounter rough patches from time to time and you give me the reassurance to continue to share my journey in the hopes to inspire and perhaps make the load a little lighter for others. And as yourself, you don’t have to try and I already know that you have fought and won some battles my dear friend. Xo ❤

    1. Luca, im beyond touched and what a wonderful gift to wake up to. I feel so honored by your post and I can only convey how much this means to me. Your kind and thought provoking words as always speak from my soul and you are so right.
      The feeling is mutual and even we have never met (yet), there remains a connection that continues to grow as I feel that my soul has known you forever. I feel the understanding that requires little to no words and I acknowledge how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life.
      I know that you have seen pain in your life and yet your beautiful spirit continues to shine through as those who don’t see eye to eye could never diminish the amazing light you are.
      Thank you so much for this, I’m truly touched. ❤🌹🌹🌹🌹

      1. You’re welcome, but as you said phisical realm isn’t important when you resonate with someone, so even if I’m slow as my snail running buddy from Cremeno’s Mountains I kept remembering I owe you that post and I finally got to it eheh… I’ll see your mountains through your eyes and hope to get there one day to see them through mine. 🙂 Have a wonderful day and a big hug from Madrid!!!! :)🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

      2. And maybe we even see some mountains together some day and visit. You are right about the physical realm and I know that I feel more connected and closer to some of the people I was lucky to have met on here, vs. the ones close to me in flesh.
        We share a connection of being like minded souls, having shared some of the same life experiences and having most of the same qualities and values. It is a little bit like in the movie “Avatar” when Neytiri looks at Jake and says “I see you” meaning that no explanations are needed and that she gets who he is. And with that said my wonderful friend, you never owe me anything but I am beyond honored by your friendship and dedication. It means a lot.

        And last and most importantly

        “I see you” ❤

  2. Friend, I’m in love with this poem!!! Truly, it does touch my heart. I love the mantra of “Be strong, warrior,” and I also love all the beautiful references you make to nature and how it should be affecting our souls. (If I didn’t have to work, I’d definitely be outside the majority of my spring and summer days, for sure!) Your words are lovely to read.

    This is marvellous, wonderful piece of writing, so beautiful and strong and gentle and stirring.
    Yes, you are a Shaman alright! Now I’m thinking you either were a Native American in a past life or you have a Native American spirit guide….? You are certainly channelling that Earth Spirit energy really strongly here, Rainbow Warrior. xx

    1. Awe, thank you so much my dear soul sister. Your words soothe my soul as always. I do have a strong attachment to Native American wisdom. I can’t explain it but there is a calling. Plus I have the head dress to channel inner warrior. You are already know how much I love Mother Earth and nature itself. Xoxoxo thank you for your kind words. Xo

      1. Yes, there is a photo of you with the headdress on I think, I can’t see it properly, just the beading around your forehead. You always look amazing in photos, but that one I would have to classify as truly stunning. With your love of America and love of the Earth, it is no wonder the Native American wisdom speaks to your heart. xx

      2. Awe thank you so much Amanda. I checked and yes it’s me wearing the head dress walking in the snow. The picture is actually from the back and shows the long feather plum. I wear it from time to time and have fun with it. I have a post scheduled wearing it with a quote I liked.

      3. That’s not the photo I meant, it’s a head shot front view in your bottom widjet of you looking stunning and you can’t see the feathers, is that the headdress too? Now you point out that it’s you in the headdress walking through the snow, wow, amazing, I didn’t realise, you look fabulous and that is some headdress! xx

      4. Ah yes, I know what picture you are talking about now. The actual to that picture is called courage to live and you’ll get to see a better picture of it. There is another post called Merry Christmas that shows the headdress too as well as a few others I don’t remember the tittle to right now.
        All pictures posted are mostly my own unless I state it. Thank you so much, I’m glad you liked it. Xoxo
