The Answer is Very Simple

We clearly don’t have the answer figured out, or we’d be investing much more in education; helping our youth as much as we can and teaching them how to be better than we are.

Think about it. It’s really that simple.

Massive change is needed. Educating the next generation the right way is the quickest path to meaningful, lasting change.

And, this starts with leaders, acknowledging on behalf of the people, that we’re all fucked up; our system, and the majority.

Perfect Circle

So what do you see?
What are you workin on?
Do things look good,
To you?

Lemme see that weight?
Your pain.
I wanna hold it.
Give it here,
My dear.
It’s ok.
My love.
I wanna show you somethin.

Turns out, it’s not the dark,
But the brightest light
That makes it hard to see.

But, look.
Your reflection

Next to you the sky’s are blue.
Can you see it now?

Perfect circle.
Around the sun.
There’s been no rain
Above the clouds.
It’s always there.

We just can’t always see it.

On My Way Back to You.

Kinder thoughts
As you come and go.
From my mind.
All the time.
Wishing for that better space;
Open.
Fine. No problem, as the past fades away
In its place.

Connected, right, the light comes in,
Like the wind,
For a time.

Just want it to stay.
For always.
For us.

Just want you to stay
With me.

Why did you have to go
So soon?

Come back to me.

I’m on my way
To you.

How to be Going Forward

In a way
That weighs,
I’m in the way.
Encroaching on space
Of others.

I consider my place.
I’m mindful of others.
But I’m often not what they want.

Expectations of me.
Some i can’t see.
Some others, i disagree (with).

So, what should I do,
But fight-through these things,
And Stand-for what i am about?

Just being here, or just walking by you, can insight the deepest of fear. I can cause you to flee; your reaction to me. You may listen, but my truth you can’t hear.

Through The Fire

If we only knew
How it was
And can be
We would see
What I’ve seen
And I know.
And, i know
It-can be-better
Right here and right now
Is forever
And Heaven is here
But it’s fear
That keeps us from there
As we stare
And believe
This is something it’s not
Is hell
Here on earth
Is the way it will stay
Til we change.

So close
Yet so far
We dont know
Where we are
But the fire
Will clean us
As long as we need it
Til we-have come through it.
It’s backwards
Yet progress.
We’re moving towards light
Then we’ll see…

What we couldn’t.

As Far as You Know

In and out of my head.
In and out of the past.
In and out of the moment.
Member of your cast.

If you want the best of me,
You’ve got to let me be.
You don’t know what you want,
But I can help you see.

But focus is on you.
You must adjust your sight.
It’s just a thing that happens,
For those who’re living right.

It comes with letting go,
Of control; that which you hold.
You’re wired but you don’t know it.
You do how you were told.

Taught to see a certain way,
But there’s much more to see.
Awareness has the answers.
Observation is the key.

Just noticing what is.
And, being thankful you are here.
Imagine you’re a captain.
You’ve a boat that you must steer.

And, the weather’s changing constantly.
Some days there will be storms.
Calm waters will not last.
Roses have their thorns.

He said that we are “Stiff Necked”,
Which is to say, we stare.
What is it that you’re minding?
Move on, That is my dare.

Move on.
