We Play

I know this,
But you knew that,

So I play along.

Got a song now;
I’ve always had,
That I want to share with you.

Gimme your ears.
I’ll find your heart.
That place I said you knew.

Brighter than you’ve seen before.
The way that things should be.
As if we’d never learned the world;
Never taught to see…

Relativity

Context is King.
What do you see?
What are you hearing and learning?

The Ego’s a wall.
Most men will fall;
Blind in their roles, yet while yearning.

Lost, yet so close to the truth.
Affraid; the other end of the ego.
We believe what we see.
There’s a story we feed.
And, then there’s the truth that we don’t know.

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.

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.
