All We Are

I follow a thinking
That I know to be right.
Many trains;
All day and all night.

I’m riding a wish
Of one kind or another.
Somewhere in mind
Is my sister and brother.

All this
While running away;
While looking back
To a horrible day.

While looking ahead;
Forward to rise;
With a dream in the dark
That I’ll meet the surprise.

The kind that you know
Before you get there.
The word was let out.
You pretend not to stare.

You can only imagine
The way it could be.
Yet, by holding the thought,
You can never be free.

And, the time keeps on ticking,
While asleep and awake,
As we question the why,
And the who we forsake.

Comes back to the reason;
Cycles to end;
Own your story;
Be as One with the Wind.

Different

I see what I see,
And I feel what I do.
In-some-ways we’re the same,
Yet I’m different than you.

I take my time,
And I don’t worry a-lot
You stress about things
That I do not.

And yet I think and think
About lots of stuff.
I’m just getting started,
When you’ve had enough.

We all go places
In our mind.
I like to dive deep,
And to see what I find.

I question perspective.
I like to ask, Why?
You say I’m aggressive,
But-you’d rather not pry.

I say, let’s see the cards.
Let-chips-fall where they may.
What are we hiding?
It’s not right this way.

What’s the point,
Of just playing a role
When you can’t be yourself?
When you can’t be whole?

Seems like I’m going in circles,
But you can’t hear me.
I suppose you do in your way.
You just don’t see what I see.

Failing Employers

A string of words held up, high,
Over the heads of others;
Within… ideology… mantra…
The leaders are trapped…
Driven to force a short-sighted vision.
Drawn from greed, believing in a machine, of people; an unnatural energy, made up of unique minds, uncontent accepting roles within a far less than great place.

Unbelievable

We’re all guided
By a force
That we don’t understand.
It’s not by chance
You’re reading this.
This moment has been planned.

You’ve sensed this many times.
You’ve thought,
“There must be more”.
We’re slowly waking
To the truth,
And then we’ll WANT no more.

We’ll know the way Life is.
The weight will melt away.
The world we’ve known
Will be no more.
The golden light will stay.

Prayer

The day is through.
It’s time to Rest.
No need to worry.
I’ve done my Best.

Thank you, God,
For all your Love,
And-for your guidance
From Above.

Please help me dream,
That I may See
And know the love
You have for Me.

That i may wake
With-out Fear;
With courage knowing
You are Here.

Amen

Fight for it.

Clarity comes
To those who persist.
A light can come on
When you’ve swung and missed.

That certain thing clicks
At the end of the day.
Once you’ve said, I’ve got more;
When you decided to stay.

Shut-it down though,
And you cannot learn.
The lessons lie
Just ahead of the turn.

You got to face
The fears of now
In order to know
The way; the how.

So challenge yourself
To find your way;
To never give up.
Your effort will pay.
