Refinement in Confinement

In this time of confinement We are forced to be released of our normal routines of escape Our addictions, our anxieties appeased Those outlets we regularly used To escape our troubles and our fears Those crutches we thought we needed forever Have been broken We left home to relieve our stresses Turmoil and pain Of jobs and marriage troubles Of loneliness and self doubt … Read More Refinement in Confinement

These Times They are a Changing

Nothing is the same, all will be made new It was only yesterday we knew what to do But these days they are dragging It’s a tornado with no compass But you will be lifted out of and into The way things will be as we renew Don’t get caught up in the panic and ensue Rather hold your torch up high in the … Read More These Times They are a Changing

Leave the Circus outside the Circle

With every passing decade I learn I grow from the experiences Hardship or Triumph Makes no difference They both produce fruit Because I am watching Observing the actions and responses Feeling my soul deep inside How else to measure the growth But to look into others eyes Hear their words Or lack of them Do they turn to me Or fall away Was it … Read More Leave the Circus outside the Circle

Wonderland Awaits

  I stand back and am amazed By things I do not understand Those who have tread upon paths I have not Who learned lessons I do not know or understand I am willing to see Albeit sometimes It makes me faint I do not know if I can catch up You know so much I am so far behind But I grasp with … Read More Wonderland Awaits

Us and Them?

Us and Them Truly words to make you stop Think about the meaning Shall we stay here in the USA Or is the world the platform To try to understand the dilemma We battle and set to war Everyday a quagmire Each to their own understanding So sad but so true We cannot control the perceptions Nor the responses to Differentials between us Some … Read More Us and Them?

In the Still of the Morning

Ideas awaken the mind Creativity flows in the wee hours Most are sleeping I’m awake Connecting dots Between past and future I am the gateway Here in this present moment I decide what to leave in What should be shed like a skin Past is gone but it teaches Future can be wildly exciting If only I choose right Which way to go Before … Read More In the Still of the Morning

Mind Bending- Rapid Growth

  From conception to 8 years of age The brain develops at lightning speed We are led, as in a hypnotic trance At the mercy of others guidance What we feed it, will grow Starve what you do not want to live there What we do then and from there Makes us who we are body and soul The mind is the power behind … Read More Mind Bending- Rapid Growth

The Hope Of New

There is a time for everything under the sun There are decades and eras They bring with them trials Tragedies and Triumphs The best of times The worst of times The lessons learned To only give up when the ship Will take you down So you must jump Jump and the Universe will catch you Stubbornness may serve you Or it may drown you … Read More The Hope Of New

I Can Feel It

Somehow nostalgia gripped me tonight I remembered things best forgotten But all those memories brought me here today I had made a breakthrough yesterday I realized secrets of the heart Not clouded anymore by fear Doubt or worry When the heart is open And the mind is too It is a powerful tool for advancement In a world that rewards For all the wrong … Read More I Can Feel It

The Seed of Transformation

A mustard seed is the most humble of all So small, so unassuming It does not know that its destiny is to be GREAT and TALL When it fell to the ground it worried Many birds came and ate many seeds But this little seed had a destiny It was trampled upon Dirt covered it Darkness consumed it It wondered whether It would have … Read More The Seed of Transformation

All Creatures GREAT and small

I don’t care where you are in the food chain Or on the social plane From mole to elephant From shark to sloth There lies one truth All desire to live free All want to feel safe The hierarchy of needs must be met In order to reach the highest level Of pure, unadulterated creativity One’s true self uncovered By shedding survival mode By … Read More All Creatures GREAT and small

Come on, and take it Just one more step I know you can’t see Where you are going is a mystery And it’s been so hard But try with all your might For one second to believe That I am trustworthy To lead you on To where you won’t need A guide to rely on You will have an epiphany I know, I have … Read More Take it to the limit
