Before You’re Dirt

How-do-you approach the day?
Go through the motions,
So you can get paid?
Can’t wait for five o’clock?

What a sad way to live;
Uncommitted to purpose;
Like a boat that’s tied to a dock.

You’ve got to break out
And follow your heart.
And make the most
Of the time that’s here.

You’ve more to give.
You know you do.
The time is now
To address your fear.

This change means leaving comfort.
The steps you’ll take may hurt.
But-give-yourself some credit
Before-you become the dirt.

Wake Up

The day begins before-sunrise.
It-doesn’t-start when you hear your ALARM.
You choose the time, when you want to get up,
And-when to-begin tending the FARM.

A-healthy-farm gets consistent care.
The-farmer controls what he CAN.
He learns and adapts as the seasons go by;
With-unwavering execution of PLAN.

Giants

I’m in your corner,
Whether you know it or not;
Ready to act,
And to give-all that I’ve got;

Filled with love;
The strength of ten men;
More strength than an army
That’s fighting from sin.

An American man,
Behind the scene.
Walking in truth.
You know what i mean.

Above the boss,
That climbed in greed;
Beyond… All the Way Up;
Different gear. Different speed.

It’ll blow your mind,
Like a bomb to your brain;
Born from a path
That began with pain.

Trial throught fire;
Now forged like steel.
Driven by purpose
Like a mouse on a wheel.

No quit in the journey.
No stop in my fight.
It’s-for the-greater-good;
Hundred percent right.

I’m the guy you want ;
The guy you cheer-for;
The man you need
To bust through the door.

Calling out the pink elephants
That you’ve learned to ignore;
Pulling the rug;
Exposing the floor.

Shinning-a-light on the holes,
Calling-out the-foundation.
Once and for all,
Bringing-together a nation.

Right where it hurts;
Straight to our pain.
Walls must come down
For progress and gain.

So that we may move forward;
The truth will come out.
We’ll all look inside,
And see what we are about.

Much greater, the way,
Than we’ve ever known.
Children of light.
Where no one’s alone.

We are one.
Here together, for one another.

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.

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.

Where We Are

1. We go as we like it.
2. We see differently.
3. I’m a part of your story
a. Just as you are for me.

As with personal space?
Check yourself at the door.
I know of my own house.
Show respect. Know the lore?

Know where you are?
Know where we come from?
We’re-all-from the-same-place;
The King and the Bum.

Outside and Within

Enjoy watching-birds
Because you can.
That’s-what Saturday’s for.
Spending time with no plan.

You can take in the sounds,
While enjoying the breeze,
While feeling the sun.
Take-time-for-yourself, please.

One day, try headphones;
The next, go without.
Mix it up how you like.
Change is-what-it’s-about.

Taking time for yourself
And finding some space,
Will bring peace to your weekdays,
When you’re in the rat race.

Because peace is a feeling,
That we find from within.
And, we can share it with others.
Starting now, let’s begin.

Start just by sitting,
Or go for a walk.
And, see what you find,
You may hear a hawk.

I promise you this.
Its worth it, and free.
And, will help with your balance.
Try it out. You will see.
