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

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

The Three Little Pigs

  The first little pig lived in a straw house He had no worries about anything He wanted a quick start He wanted to go about life Hating to worry or fuss Not a strategist was he A live by the seat of your pants one he was A shared thought by the young Until life smacked him down a notch When everything went … Read More The Three Little Pigs

Take it to the limit

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

Inspired

I am at one with myself I am a teacher I am a listener I am a pro-claimer I want more So much more I want to follow The path that leads me to it I am standing on the high board Not sure if I know how to swim But I want to trust That my soul knows the way Fueled by my … Read More Inspired

Night Musing

This is new for me Writing while the news is on Good test to see Can I think and feel myself While all the world is running a muck The media frenzy pursues Relentless and persistent The narratives compete Push and pull Rip and tear We are in a war for the mind But who will take the time To do the work to … Read More Night Musing

Born to be Free

I am breathing hard as my steps are pulling me forward Winding through the trees my heart races I left the path seeking adventure Always needing to explore to find the unexpected There is just so much more So many live by the rules Safe in a ritual of obsessive order Stifled by a strict regiment I ran out the door Freedom is power … Read More Born to be Free

together forever, goodbye

It came so swiftly that no one had any idea There were plans There was excitement A new life is coming You and I are one We had created this little one to come Something has shifted What is this intuition I cannot pay attention to anything else Something deep is calling to me I must pay attention Something is wrong It is too … Read More together forever, goodbye

You’ve got to carry that weight

Like an egg in a shell My heart has been sealed away It’s so much safer in there But when its time to grow the egg must be cracked There is a time for everything For some the time never comes It takes great courage to look deep inside It’s so much easier to avoid To drink from the waters that blind Soothing is … Read More You’ve got to carry that weight
