Ways and Ways

Seems-like most-answers lie-within.
Yet, many seem to hide.
Only-to-be revealed-in-time.
As-if they serve as guide.

Coming through;
Completes the circle;
Once we’ve walked a trail.
Not always ours;
Assisting others;
An interwoven tale.

Just Say, Yes.

Why wouldn’t you go?
What’s there to lose?
Not up for it?
Just can’t choose?

Whatever the reasons,
Start saying, yes.
Drop the excuses.
Don’t second-guess.

Make it a habit.
Just say yes more.
Think of each chance
As you think of a door.

If you never walk through,
You’ll never know.
If you don’t try things out,
Then how can you grow?

Break the routine.
Just say, I will.
Because it won’t be that long
Till you’re “over the hill”.

Grains of Salt

They say-that numbers don’t lie,
But people sure do.
Data’s just there.
People skew.

Ob-jec-tivity…
Is a tough thing to find.
There’s usually bias,
If-not agenda in mind.

Intentional or not,
We’re shown part of the truth;
Rarely full context;
Like banner at booth.

Looks-good at-first-glance;
Designed for buy-in.
But, facades don’t last.
They’re far to thin.

We can see through many.
Good ones confuse;
Tying in issues,
They know what we’ll choose.

Us against them;
Political sides;
Lines that divide.
They’re foolish guides.

So, it’s also been said,
Believe half what you read.
Let this serve as reminder;
A warning to heed.

The Point of No Return

What’s the point,
Of No Return?
How’d ya read it?
What’d ya learn?

What do ya hold?
Can’t let go?
Worth the weight
As you grow old?

If now is right
In front of you,
And we have choice
In what we do,

Then choose to move
Into the light.
The point is not
To prove you’re right.

See? Drop the story;
Move along.
Feed the past
Then-makes you wrong.

Non reaction
Is the way.
It’ll help you to
Enjoy the day.

Try it out;
It’s, Don’t Feed In.
Catch yourself
When you begin.

You take the bait
If you should stay.
It’s better to
Just walk away,

Pondering

Ain’t memory somethin?
And, what comes to mind?
And, what of the details
That we can’t seem to find?

Past situations;
It-was-now,
Then,
At that point.
But, now the point’s lost
At a point that’s past then;
Now.
How?
That’s not the point.
That’s a question.

Wow.
You got it?
Then now
You had it,
And got it
For now.

Better and Better

Let-life come to you,
As with cat to your lap;
Else you’re lost in the issues
Where each story’s a trap.

How do we do it?
Our eyes must adjust.
They’ve been locked in a tunnel;
It takes-time to-learn trust.

Where do we start?
Well, right here and now.
Just let your eyes wander.
Don’t worry about how?

Of course you wonder,
But your mind’s in your way.
Let your thoughts go
To become one with the day.

May we find peace with the way things are.

Long Gone. Still Here.

Same ol thing.
Same place.
Same pain.
Wish you were here.

Got lost in movin on.
Longest trip there’s ever been.
Never ends
Unril it does, and then I’ll know…

If I can be with you again.

If so,
Will I remember how it was?

Will i feel what i felt?
I wonder.

And, where will we go from there?

Wonder if it will end.

Wonder if i
Will lose you again.

I know I’ll keep wondering til then.
