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.

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.

Amazing!

Unbelievable! Life!
The fact that we’re here!
Are-you-in-touch with-this-gift?!
Or, are-you mired-in-fear?

What’s your story,
And thoughts of this place?
Seem as though
You’re in a rat race?

Chasing possessions?
More and more?
Buying stuff
You don’t need from the store?

Blaming someone
For something that’s done?
All work? No play?
No time for some fun?

Always behind?
Never ahead?
Chasing retirement?
Leading or led?

Not sure we remember
Living with Joy,
We are lost in our story.
Mine began as a boy.

At some point, some wake
To a dream or a nightmare
Something happens.
Like, life starts from there.

And, we’re looking back,
And holding on.
Questioning life;
Right and wrong.

Blessing or curse?
Eye of beholer.
Perspective changes
As we get older.

And, through it All?
Awareness, the gift.
Insight into change;
That life’s about shift.

And, knowing that balance
Is achieved in mind;
When you let-go control,
And leave past behind.

When you can stand in the moment,
Honest with you,
About who you are,
And the things that you do.

Knowing that
We have time and space.
And, that it’s our duty
To move beyond what we chase;

Desire born,
With pleasure and pain.
Taught by leaders
Confused by gain.

So, to wrap this up,
It’s left with you.
Consider your heart
And what you do.

Follow your voice.
Believe in Love.
Trust in yourself
And in God above.

Know, you’re his child.
He’s guiding the way.
Take time to listen.
There’s only today.

Meaning, do right, right now.
Time will show.
Dare to give of yourself.
Your efforts will show.

Like footprints in sand,
Will reveal where you’ve been.
Walk proud with purpose.
Right now, we begin.

O.K.

What did you think
Of tbe thing that you saw?
Were there conclusions
That you could draw?

Could you make it out
From where ya sat?
Do-you remember
The guy with the hat?

Takeaways? Answers?
Where are things now?
If you had to guess,
Could you tell me how?

Or, why that was
The way you thought?
Bet you could tie it
To the way you were taught.

Do ya know what i mean?
The way that it was.
As if being guided
By a particular buzz.

Hum and a click,
A chirp in the sky.
As if only you heard it,
And we all wonder why.

Because it’s just so;
Your place in this life.
We all have a back.
We’ve all taken a knife.

To the gut, to the heart,
Comes a matter of feeling;
Wounds from the past,
Forever healing,
Comes a time
Why we’ll reach
For the top of the hill,
Only to get there,
And to find ourselves still.

Still with ourselves
From the day that we came,
But now looking back
Because we have someone to blame;

For something.
For some reason.

For some reason.

Still
Moving on.

Live your Dream

You fit just so;
Just by being;
Regardless of past
And of the future you’re seeing.

Do you know who you are?
Do you know what you’re doing?
Are you at peace with yourself,
Or do you sit around stewing?

Do you work on yourself?
Do you have a plan?
Whatever it is,
Do you believe that you can?

Do you understand,
By now, how things go?
You must be open to learning,
And trying to grow.

Just a step at a time;
That’s all we can do.
Start with a small goal,
Then see it through.

Then move on to another.
Make the most of the day.
Refuse to give up,
And you will find your way.

Think of buckets of time.
Make a plan for each hour.
Your effort’s like sun;
You’ll grow like a flower.

Slowly but surely,
But not without rain;
This comes from thought;
Seeds of your brain.

So be mindful; aware,
Of all that you do.
With focus and practice,
Your dreams may come true.

From a Dream

I woke in a funk
From a dream that I’d had.
I don’t recall it,
But it must have been sad.

But-i-don’t-sit and wallow.
I keep ThinkingAhead.
I stick to my plan
When-I get outta bed.

Excellence takes grit.
It’s a matter of habit.
Eliminate distractions.
Go out and grab it.

Stay the course
Then-in-time you will find
The weight of your fears
Was left behind.

With intention and focus,
And consistent routine,
You’ll find yourself
As the person you’d seen;

The best version of you,
Emerging through trial.
It doesn’t come easy.
It takes a while.

And, along that road,
Most give in;
Unwilling to do
What it takes to win.

Keep believing in you.
Fight harder each day.
You will grow stronger.
You will find your way.
