A Grateful Rider

I’m guided by
A higher force.
Like I am rider
And it is horse.

Should I decide
To take a nap,
Please let me rest.
Get off my back.

I ride a path
That is my own,
But I know that
I’m not alone.

I trust that we
Are here as one,
But let me ride
And have some fun.

We all have ego.
Many, vice.
Is this making sense?
I won’t say it twice.

I’m moving on.
Unclear’s the road.
But, one thing’s sure.
I have a load.

My burden seems
That which I’ve carried.
Pain I’ve held
From those I’ve burried.

But i ride on
And go my way.
Not up to me;
The horse’s say.

Out of Business

Holy Cow!
To put it politely.
You haven’t a clue.
Not even slightly.

You’re not even aware,
You don’t even know.
You’ve got to see this.
C’mon! Let’s go!

Can you believe it?!
What do you think?!
We never thought
It would actually sink!

But here we are
And there it is.
That’s it. It’s over.
It’s no longer his.

We knew he sucked.
We believed he was lost.
A matter of ego.
And here’s the cost.

The price to pay.
His business is gone.
He wouldn’t listen.
We were a pawn.

A cog in the wheel.
The machine couldn’t last.
He never learned
From the lessons from past.

He ignored the truth
And saw what he wanted.
Karma has spoken
And now he’ll be haunted.

And he’ll move on.
But you know he won’t learn.
Despite the scar.
In spite of the burn.

He’ll just blame it on others,
Like it wasn’t his place.
Those others were fat
And a total disgrace.

Funny not funny.
Dissapointing and sad.
He’ll never know
What we knew that he had.

It Melts Away

Know that I’m Aware.
Where not, please know I Care.

The issues are so many.
Just so much I can see.

But, I walk, to take my Time.
I slow-down with a Rhyme.
Con si der ing
The life around me.
Thankful for this time.

I’ll often seek the Hawk.
I’ll sometimes find her Feather.
Just my time, just for a Walk.
Just me within the Weather.

Lovely is the sunshine.
I too enjoy the Rain.
Always tied to suffering
And managing our Pain.

And I’ve found that it’s O.K.
To just enjoy the Day.
To leave things as they are:
That Bullshit melts Away.

Peace on Earth

It’s another time
Around the globe.
Somewhere sits
A man in robe.

Hungry are a many.
Disease and war and peace.

But there’s no peace that lasts.
Ripples are the way.
We’re all connected here on earth.
Togther. One. Today.

Now.
Hear this.
Loud and clear.
Our heads are in our ass.

Be not content.
Do not ignore
The lessons from our past.

We’re holding everything.
And we’re held by want is here.

The things that we ignore
Are wrapped in all our fear.

But, we must follow hope.
And, love will light the way.
It’s up to us to see it.
We only have today.

Rise up

Minimal
Chemicals.
Gunna give myself
The good stuff.
Tough enough
With my brain
With insane
At the edge;
Like a bubble
Where trouble
Slaps you
In the face
Where disgrace
Is a race
To forget.
Confused
We lose sight
Of the Light,
So we fight
In defense
To protect.
Erected
And projected
Are ideas,
Just thoughts
That we consume.

With costumes
We play a role,
And, explore
A finite space
In time…

So take this rhyme
As love.

Be filled;
Full with love
To the top
And break through.

Unbound.
Above and beyond the fight.

Stand
With love.
For love.

Tend to your pains
And the pains of others.

You needn’t disguise,
Or hide.
Rise
Up.

Be Yourself

This about it.
It’s how you take it.
Is how you see it,
And step forward
Can’t ignore it.
Movin on.
And holdin on,
And Not.
What it is,
To you.
Ain’t to me.
Can’t see.
That I’m beyond you.
But, in reach,
So I teach.
Ain’t wrong.
Then it’s gone,
And won’t come back.
And, you’re seen
With lack of tact,
But the fact is
You’re hacked,
So you help
The way it is,
By the way you see his.
And, more than you take-in,
You ain’t fakin
What you make of this place,
Like a race
That won’t end,
After you move on.
Gone.
So you gotta leave it better
Than you found it.
Surrounded
You find it,
Reminded by what happened
Saddend,
Yet struck,
And compelled to duck
The way you are.
Far from how you perceive
They want you to be.
But you can only be yourself.
