Control Yourself

It’s that simple… but like signs this will mean something different to most who read this.

Self Awareness is the key.

Make it a practice to notice your feelings, and how they affect your thinking, and ultimately your actions; how you react and respond to situations and people.

Then, make it a priority to focus on your life and your day.

And, stop ranting about things and other people.

See that for what it is… a distraction from yourself and proper focus, and peace of mind.

Passing Through

I’m passing through.

I’m on my way.

I don’t get stuck

Throughout the day.

On a path, within the road. No avoiding getting old.

Certain things I need to do. Ensuring that my dreams come true.

Clearer now, the way to be. I’ve learned to learn the way to see…

Things and stuff, they come and go. See past those things and you will grow… the way you should.

Hooked

Sometimes it’s the bait.

Sometimes it’s the Hook.

Sometimes you have no choice,

But to turn the page of the Book.

Where you at with this?

Have you Evolved?

Or, are you that same kid from High School,

That thinks he has this Solved?

Where do you think you are going?

You gotta slow Down.

Forget what you’ve learned,

And just look Around.

And, then just keep looking,

And get outta your Head.

You’ll begin to see things differently,

Despite what you’ve Read.

Or Without

Think about it. Think about it.

if you without it, you ain’t with it.

What’s the reason? Now you get it.

For a second, then it’s lost.

Where’s it at? What’s the cost?

Give em more. Watchem take it.

Don’t blame me. I didn’t make it.

Make him? No sir.

Never saw it.

All a blur.

Now. See. You and me.

He was. I am.

Not me. Uncle Sam,

Be trippin. I’m just slippin, down a path, from way back.

Long ago, from where I came. Insane, the brain.

Fishing for Answers

it could be the bait,

or the way that you Reel.

I’m happy to listen.

How do you Feel?

It may be the season,

Or perhaps where-you-Cast.

One thing’s for sure…

This will not Last.

Not today nor tomorrow.

Yesterday’s Gone.

Do you still want to talk,

Or is it time to move On?

Embrace all the changes.

Learn as you Go.

Enjoy every moment;

The highs and the Low.

Honey for Lori.

She’s content… but she’s a little bit anxious. Happy, but a little unsettled. And…. she’s ready to play…. but she’s happy to lay… around… in the sun… or the shade. She loves the breeze.

She just wants to be… with what’s good.

Like a hike…. taking the path of joy… by choice… though the trails of pain are there. The trails of doubt, and with the fear and unknown.

Gotta leave it alone. Gotta live with the music. The good song…. where we’ve left behind and alone the weight and shame. Where that game has faded away.

She didn’t ask to be made to walk with pain. She’d have never done what she did. So many times, when once is too many, for anyone. Just a kid. So unbelievable sad…. to be hidden from love the way she was. Ohhhhhhh Lori. Lori. Lori Lori. My sweet sister. I’m so sorry for everything. We didn’t ask for this, and now you’re gone forever.

I wanna sit here in the shade with you, and the breeze, and just be with you… again.
