Change Your Behavior

Unreal
How-far-apart
We-seem-to-be
In-our-minds.

Layers
And context
And stories
Of all kinds.

Perspectives
And focus;
Attention,
Here and there.

It’s when we focus
On others
That that we show
That we care.

So, try dropping your thinking,
And learn just to be.
With attention on others.
And just see what you see.

Observing’s the practice.
Non reaction’s the game.
If you try this, I promise,
You won’t be the same.

You’ll be growing awareness
Of what life reallly is;
A blessing to live.
You’re a child of His.

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.

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.

Our Walls, From Within

Things are as they are.
Notice your own responses/ reactions.
When you’re holding something against someone, let it go, and try an act of kindness towards that person.
When you decide you’re right, do you stop listening? If so, decide not to be right, but to listen and to be open minded. You may just hear something and learn something new.

Awareness of our own thoughts, perspectives, and behavior is critical if we are to grow and to evolve the best version of ourself.

We must notice the walls we put up, and decide to breathe and break through them.
