The Cycle

These eyes look as vision fades Into darkened, dampened forest glades Russet hues and yellows burn As Fall takes its three-month  turn Towards the dark of winter’s cold The cycle of life to death to life The way of all things we are told In myth and legend’s that foretell strife We are but passing flotsam Cast upon a naked shoreline Silently mouthing the words ‘I am’ Consciously murmuring in time To the mood-swelled tidal forces In an early primeval dawning As the heated blood now courses Pumped through growing limbs entwining Our everlasting souls soaring To find the Sun and its nourishing light In which to find our way through second sight Back home

The Millennial

I remember going to school to get an education Now they go for an indoctrination Freedom is besieged by the enemy within The key to acceptance now is judgement To crucify another’s rights to a life style What right have you to do this? First off, judge yourself and understand Ideology has poisoned the waters of your life An unwillingness to think No idea how to face the truth A focus on the outer other As opposed to your personal inner And in the cleverness of your stupidity You have condemned yourselves With confidence in your idiocy You have marked yourself out As a follower, a zealot Pushing an agenda Earning brownie points Your rottenness presented As morality posturing For all to see

Islands

  The music floats on aural highways Conjuring a mood and kindling memories A certain sadness creeping in Knowing only I experience this feeling In exactly this way in this moment Since slowly passed away Your words linger and may charm or sting Depending on the mood you bring The body language can also be read You are a book that emanates from a hole in your head But I cannot truly understand you No matter what words you say I am an island, a castaway I am God’s joke – I hear him chuckle Knowing that I can never share Never know how you truly feel Never know if you really care You are an island, faraway A distant shore seen through the haze Untouched save by the waves

Value Who You Are

I am a thought in the mind of God. A ripple of consciousness in time and space. I am making it up as I go along gaining in wisdom, experience and versatility as I go. My value is that I am. We must all value who and what we are. Unique as we all are, the death of a person takes with it countless life lessons and experiences……. Be yourself. Live! Do not be afraid. You are a well of experience, inspiration and yes, magic. So frolick in the Sun, laugh, be merry… and love with fury!

Vitriol

They tell me on the radio Repeat it on TV They tell me what I should believe Convincing words and stories Switch the channel for an alternate view The scientists say it, so it must be true False news is everywhere What can I believe?   Bitcoin will make you rich Hot girls in your city waiting Get a date with me, I’m hot as hell And if you want, I’ll sex you This spam is everywhere Ubiquitous across the web False news is everywhere What can I believe?   Reality is hard to find The truth harder to discern We are bending with their words Dancing within their stories Playful play things controlled and abused I am no longer amused False news is everywhere What can I believe?

The Fates

I’m sipping my red wine Slipping back through time Memories of a life well-lived No regrets, but I miss those days The past is gone and one cannot dwell On what might have been But rather I learn through loss And look forward with hope A life I could never have imagined Complete in every way And lived every single day Blessed Im not where I thought Id be But wisdom extracts a price And when you roll the dice And follow the fates Life takes its course And your future awaits The key is gratitude Having learned the lessons That they threw at you The cackling laughter Of the Fates in their glee And yet without them I simply couldn’t see And the wheel of life Turns, turns, turns

My Personal Ecdysis

So strange That moment When you realize You never lived at all It was a life for sure But what was it all about? Strutting on life’s stage All sound and fury Yet signifying ‘not nothing’ Rather lived as expectation Being what you thought You should be But what do I want to be? Who am I really? I’ve masks upon masks So deep, I forget Which might be the real me I begin to peel Layer after sticky layer I peel so deep It really hurts And even now I’m unsure If I’ve reached the core Or, am confused myself As to where my skin Ends and really begins Have I reached my true insides? Is that why I’m feeling sore? I shed each skin And then begin To

My Virtual Reality

Last night, my daughter and I watched a movie about Katy Perry. As I stepped away for a smoke, these words suddenly came to mind…… Not sure what it means.   Come with me Into my virtual reality Come with me Feel the depth of my insanity I’m sliding away, headed anywhere I’m skipping this insane reality I’m easing on through to be with you I have found my pastures new I’m in my own world of pain and memory Trapped inside some slick pop melody It’s like living a Katy Perry song gone wrong I’m losing my mind inside this silly song I saw you just the other day as you turned away A flash of anger, and then the hell to pay Is this a virtual world, a

Politics

It’s hard to believe in the world today It’s hard to believe in your humanity It’s hard not to lose all hope Amongst all of this bitter insanity Have we forgotten so soon? Has history lost it’s relevance? Where is your heart, your soul? How easily you are led By all the hate and lies That you are now fed Progress made, but going backwards Unsubstantiated opinions expressed Read it on my Facebook page I can imagine most of the rest Call it politics Call it fake news Call it whatever you wish It’s giving me the blues Better wake up Better stop the rot Before someone Nukes the lot Have we forgotten so soon? Has history lost it’s relevance? Where is your heart, your soul? How easily you are

Dreams for the Dreaming

I’ve searched my entire life In the darkest of corners I never found that thing I sought In the end it was a fleeting thought And I forget what it was I was looking for And so I am left wondering If I don’t know the question How can I find the answer? It’s in my dreams And my imagination So it seems An endless world A universe I seek it while it seeks me Together we are one And I would be eternally free But I am alone chasing my tail An errand in which I always fail What am I looking for? What could it be? And night after night I dream these dreams In which, all is never what it seems There are no ways out Though
