Nice. Glad you’re here.
Seems you’ve time for some thought.
I think you’re exploring…
The way you were taught.

How you found this.
Why you are here?
A chance encounter?
No way. That’s clear.

Like, meant to be.
In our place.
The folks we meet.
The things we chase.

Guided by
A higher force.
We are our parents
And theirs of course.

We know that we
Have no idea.
That life is more
Than we can see.

Give thanks now
For this little rhyme.
Good on you.
You took the time.

So as this ends
Move on with Love.
And, know you’re safe.
Loved from Above.

Be proud and well.
Give of yourself;
One big-key
In having health.

In touch within.
Your spirit grows.
We rise above
Our highs and lows.

As we move towards
A better place.
A deeper love
That’s one with grace.

Where compassion rules
And peace is guide.
Where darkness fades.
No one can hide.

The truth is out.
Secrets gone.
The sick are healed.
It’s on and on.

Eternity.
The way it is.
The way it should be.
We are His.

In the light.
All that can be.
Together. One.
We finally see.

That We’re Here

If your energy’s tied
To all the wrong things,
Then you’re out of touch
With all that life brings.

Connect with the earth.
And get to know love.
That He loves us
Is the gift from above.

That you have life
And are here with me.
That we have breath.
That we can see.

That we can touch.
That we can smell.
That we’ve been told
Of Heaven and Hell.

That we wake up
Each day from Dreams.
That we may question
The way life seems.

Our place and time
Will have an end.
Thank God for this.
For Love, Amen .

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.

The Ball’s in Your Court

It’s one thing to think
And to let your thoughts run.
It’s another to share them.
“He’s come undone”!

What is he thinking?
That’s not how I think!
He must be crazy,
Or into the drink!

And yet, I know
What you can not.
You’re lacking context.
You’re reading what’s not.

You’re reading words
Through a limited scope.
That you enjoy this and think…
That is my hope.

These words are not here
For you to figure me out.
But, they may help you question
What you’re all about.

From my brain to yours.
Like, Tag. You’re it.
This meditation is over.
Do you think it was shit?

Ignorance

Better alone with my thoughts,
Than letting them fly.
So much to consider.
Plus, I’m a white guy.

Shit. That’s two strikes
In many a book.
Sucks we can’t all
Help he way that we look.

And, why should I say
What needs to be heard?
I’m not taking the blame.
That’d be absurd.

So many layers of bullshit
And money’s the tie.
Yet, most are confused
And are living a lie.

So, I’ll hold my tongue
It’s self preservation.
I’m not buying
That we’ve free speach in our Nation.

There’s always a cost;
A price to pay.
In a world filled with morons.
That I can say.

Woke Up This Way

That feeling has left.
It just lasted a day.
I feel so much better
Now that its gone away.

Not sure where it came from,
But it was a feelin of dread.
And, with the unease
Were thoughts in my head.

Something seems wrong.
What could it be?
I’m worried that something
Will happen to me.

Have I not been mindful?
Not followed through?
Will life throw a curve ball?
What can I do?

Thank goodness it passed;
that nothing bad came my way.
It may have come from a dream.
I feel better today.

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.

Reflections

It can be hard to see what’s behind the reflection; impossible for some.
It takes refocus; an adjustment of sight for one to see beyond the surface.

In many cases though, that’s not enough.
But, with time, reflections too change.
Eventually, the clouds will part, and the water will be clear. Then, it becomes more a matter of perspective.
And, you may then simply need to get out of your own way, if you wish to see what lies beyond the surface.

At the Edge

What do you make
Of the field
And the Forrest?

Of the shadows,
And the light of the day?

As darkness falls,
What do you do?

Are you at peace,
Or are you running away?

Dreams are closer,
And thought of with sleep.
Unawake, we-fall-into-unknown.

Seasons pass.
Yet we carry the past.
I wonder when-i’ll-be-grown.

My child inside
Says, “let’s-go-for-a-ride”.
And, “I-want-to-live-without-pain”.

But-i-soon-forget
As I’m dealing with shit;
Pulled-by material gain.

Called by the future.
Confused by the now.
I move with belief in what’s right.

A trip that will end,
Just as it began.
With pure, unfiltered light.
