Thinking Out Loud

I am thinking out loud

It is just me all alone

Family and friends I love

In distant dreams or at home

Where I live and where I stay

With my world all the way

I find thoughts

A saving grace

Existing here in time and space

Strategy for peace in this place

Want us all just to be feeling

Hearing

Seeing

More concern for our well-being

*

I am sinking down proud

It is just me all alone

Everyone I love

In driving dreams, bright at home

Where I work and where I play

With my world all the way

I find words

Right in my face

Listen here to time and space

Strategy for peace in this place

Need us all just to be feeling

Hearing

Seeing

More confidence in our well-being

*

I am thinking out loud

Speaking with this tone

I am sinking down proud

Into the river like a stone

Where we’ve all been thrown

By everyone we’ve known

Not feeling

Hearing

Seeing

What we’re feeling and clearly being

Existing in time and space

Where’s the strategy for peace in this place?

Or is it just me all alone?

*

Diving down to the river bed

Bottom of the day

I rest my head

Calm alone

Tears we shed

Rushing past like all I’ve said

Blending in

Resting here

We may stay, never moving

Or in time

We may tumble

Rolling years can be soothing

But for some

Faith we’re losing

Way down low, egos bruising

Resilience looks up

With vision choosing

Optimism instead

*

I am thinking out loud

It is just us all alone

The world that we love

In distant dreams and at home

Where we live and where we stay

With our world all the way

Let’s find thoughts

A solid base

Existing well in time and space

Strategy for peace in this place

Want us all just to be feeling

Hearing

Seeing

Way more care for our well-being

True Justice

Things are tight
It’s still alright
If we keep in sight
Caring for humanity is
True Justice
*
Totally
Promoting social missions
Celebrating
All our caring visions
Making calming
Peaceful sounds
Reach to every corner of the town
We are all
Getting down
Try to
Make it alright Now
**
Things are tight
It’s not alright
It’s quite a sight
The way folks fight against
True Justice
*
Loaded and
Corroded social missions
Corrupting
Many of our Visions
Making hurtful
Lying sounds
There’s nasty feelings all round town
We are all
Getting down
But it’s
Just Not alright Now
**
What’s not alright
Is preventable harm
Work hard to avoid that
With care and healing charm
Instead of turning a cold shoulder
Say something
Take action
At least take small chances
To improve life here
To get more satisfaction
For all involved
Communicate with reason and ration
To get more problems solved
Treat true justice as a passion
**
Things are tight
It can be alright
Even out of sight
But we must work hard to find
True justice
*
Showing more devoted social missions
Clearing up and sharing visions
Making connections
Engaging sounds
In the country and in the town
We are all
Getting down
*
Judge less for more truth
To make more lives alright now

The Truth Won’t Hide

The sun way back in outer sky

If too dry

We fry

Smoke rising high

Sun goes away for shorter days

Freeze us up

To another phase

To keep us safe I try and try

If I lie

I die

Way down inside

To save this place 

We all try and try

To just get by

Don’t ask why

Just save face

The truth won’t hide

*

The clouds come back

The sun gets shy

Passing by

So high

Low waters rise

Rain comes to stay for too many days

Pleases us in other ways

To clear the haze I try and try

If I lie

I die

Way down inside

To save head space

We all try and try

To just get by

Don’t ask why

One saving grace:

The truth won’t hide

*

The truth of the matter

is what as you have before you

Sense the reality

That matters the most

Every time I see you 

You are out of this world

Sharing all your values

As we are getting so close

Some things are hidden

Like sun behind the clouds

Emerging

Glorious and ever-lasting

The truth you learn to know

is what matters most

*

The sun is back in outer sky

Clouds try to

Apply

Cloaks rising high

Clear skies appear for a moment that stays

Speeds us up in subtle ways

To keep the pace I try and try

If I lie

I die

Way down inside

To win this race we all try and try

We just get by

Don’t ask why

Clear cut case

The truth won’t hide

A Week’s Worth

Calm blanket of clouds

A quiet awakening

Peering out

to welcome the week

The sun is not shy

Just has yet to shed

That grey robe

Glowing w/ vibrant shapes

Of drifting dreams

Sinking into the day and

Landing loudly in our life

Or vanishing into

Waves of the future

To be seen again

Tomorrow

*

We stay shining and proud

And never forsaken

No fear and doubt

Only kind goals we seek

The sun will not lie

But hides for the best

Across today’s globe

We row on oceans and lakes

Drift calm on sunbeams

Each moment sunlight breaks

Truly thirsting for light

Aim to relish all the

Days of the present

That the future

Will borrow

*

Work week passes by

Living poetry

Look up to the sky

Endless possibility

Chasing stars

Connectin dots

Dreams go further

Sharing thoughts

Energy travels

From origins intense

Resting light or expanding

If we spare more moments

Common sense to share

Stars, moon or sun

Strength in understanding

I hope your weekend is fun!

Lover of Life (Love Builds Life Strong)

Lover of life

We need you so much

No other as wise

You have a caring touch

Some folks ignore loving feelings

And think at times, that’s so smart

But we protect

Ourselves and each other

By keeping love in our heart

With sea and Earth clutch

Kindness keeps dreams high

Bad attitude just a crutch

Lover of life

We feel your colours

Let us see through your eyes

A view that is all yours

But in time realize love’s worth

We learn from

Ourselves and each other

The joy of laughter and mirth

Discover the sky

The sun and moon fuller

Kindness keeps spirits high

Being mean is just dim and duller

We feel your colours

Lover of life

Where you won’t be inspired

And everywhere you go

You are the one that inspires

With your love and desire of life

If we desire Peace and Love

Why do we always start

With the push and shove?

And think at times

that they are gone

But we can save

Ourselves and each other

By caring more

We Challenge Fate

Sometimes

A day comes crashing down

Sometimes

I blast off like a rocket

Every day changes

Not entirely dangerous

Just once in a while

We challenge fate

And good love stays with us

Our life comes in stages

At times

completely outrageous

Every now and then

And again

The world wants to play with us

*

Sometimes courage

Comes crashing down

Sometimes

I cast off ‘cause I’m shocking

Every hour changes

But there’s always a strain on us

Just once in a while

We challenge fate

Good love always stays with us

Our life comes in stages

At times we must be extra brave as

Even now and then again

The world can be saved by us

*

We challenge fate

To cut the losses

Come out ahead

Bearing no crosses

We follow society

Sometimes too blindly

I can’t grow so high and free

Without a world behind me

But I have to think for myself

The known best way to survive

To confirm with the world

that’s grown with me and through me

Act kindly and wisely

The only way to survive

*

Sometimes courage

Comes crashing down

Sometimes

Light flashes like a ghost in the socket

Every second changes

Darkness like chains to us

Just once in a while

We challenge fate

Good love always stays bright for us

Our life comes in stages

At times

So much for our brain just

Every now and then again

The world fuels the flame for us

*

We challenge fate

To fight bad bosses

Come out ahead

Real world dice tosses

We follow society

Sometimes so kindly

Our care shows jut like hide and seek

Finding the world behind me

Now I have to launch myself

The known best way to survive:

To confirm with the world

that’s grown with me and through me

Act kindly and wisely

The best way to survive

Perfect Storm and Breaking Light

The perfect storm

can seem

exceedingly normal

But in an instant

it can become

completely difficult

*

When it’s thrown into the mix

It’s nothing you can’t fix

*

The driving force of my nightmare

Sifts for a good dream

With a twist

*

The source of my delight

Or the bane of my existence

When crashing down like this

*

I have never missed

*

A perfect storm

Can be totally unusual

But in an instant

Can become all reality

*

House of straw or wood or bricks

Pull no punches and no tricks

*

The pounding rain of darkest clouds

Shifts to gentle steam

When sun-kissed

*

A healing light eternal

Cleanses pain from existence

When reaching out like this

*

Releasing a clenched fist

*

All is calm    

Relax now

Roll with waves as they charge up

*

The perfect calm can seem exceedingly chill

Within instants

It can stretch out

Deep into forever

*

Still play hard and get our kicks

Work to get in all our licks

*

The soothing voice inside our head

Lifts us past each sun beam

You get the gist

*

Faith happens day or night

The main part of our existence

When chasing dreams like this

*

Each day we can find bliss

*

Perfect storm

Relax now

Roll with eternal waves

All is calm

Just ask how

Roll with waves as they charge

Then surge with clouds

As they open

Crashing down

Till we are soaking

Crackling lightening

Silence broken

Thunder above

Clear words are spoken

*

An intense change of energy 

Arrives day or night

The calm we know first is

The breaking light

Our Image of Time

Communication urges change

With a certain intensity

in the atmosphere

We are changing gears quickly

May seem like organized chaos

Except for the daily pay-offs

We need to get ahead again

And be who we are

In today’s rush

Each one of us:

An intense soul

Should try to stay in touch more

Your image is elusive

Conversation produces change

With a certain intensity

But we may need an entire day-off

Before we can offer our pay-off

Just so we can get ahead again

And be who we are

In today’s rush

An Intense soul

Should try the truth so much more

Our collective image is elusive

Moments alright

When we realize life

Where we are connected

And can think to ourselves

“This will work out fine

Forever this time”

And together our interaction means much more

Truly staggered like trees

Along rivers that wind

Peace can be elusive

The image we find

Is what matters

We are changing gears quickly

May seem like organized chaos

Peace can be elusive

Our image of time is what matters

The Trouble with Peace

Thinking vigilant

On thousands of days

Even when there is mostly peace

In sight

*

Surrounding us

Fences to protect us

or them

If we had an understanding

We wouldn’t be

Glaring at the possibility

Of trouble

Like a turn in the road

And oncoming traffic

Or a distant train harmlessly passing

*

The world seems so volatile

In thousands of ways

Even when there is mostly peace

In sight

Right here

*

Surrounding us

People to protect us

or them

If we had an understanding

We wouldn’t be

Staring at the possibility

Of trouble

Like a well-written code

And oncoming traffic

Or an unbreakable chain

Forever lasting

*

The road to the future

Has two sides

And it’s fine

So long as we get there

and

Don’t cross the line

If we can make our turn safely

Or go on straight through

We don’t need to always worry

Or have a negative view

We work hard to beat the odds

and

Don’t sweat the small stuff 

Trouble with peace is there isn’t enough

*

In thousands of days

In thousands of ways

Peace is in sight

Within reach, so hold tight

Surrounding us

Confidence protects us

There is no ‘them’

if we have an understanding

We won’t be

Carrying the possibility

Of trouble

Like the heaviest load

And oncoming traffic

That is empty again

And thinking of crashing

*

Trouble with peace is there isn’t enough

There’s way too much conflict

We do need to be tough

But we need more compassion

And consideration

Not fierce disregard

No lack of attention

That comes down too hard

No drawing of lines

Unexplained

that confuse

We need a better understanding

Sharing more of our views

*

The path to the future

May show or hide

And it’s fine

So long as we get there

And share our fair time

If we live and learn when fate leads

And enjoy some times too

We don’t need to always worry

Or have a negative view

We work hard to beat the odds

Stick together when life gets tough 

Trouble with peace is there isn’t enough

Our Quotient (Kind Urges)

There’s no holding back

These feelings inside

It’s never easy to wait

And for more seconds hide

With joy to anticipate

*

True love always splurges

Every ounce we carry purges

Then the growing hollow soul

Fills again

Overflows and merges

As oceans make us whole

Love’s wave reflects and surges

**

There’s no keeping track

Of all of our mind

It’s never easy to rate

Every moment in time

With care we hesitate

*

Society converges

A new shared-view emerges

Then the flowing shallow soul

Is found again

Quickly grows and burgeons

As the sky makes us whole

Love’s rain fills us with kind urges

**

Kind urges are smashing

No matter how dashing

They can turn out beautiful

Or end up crashing

*

Depends on the view

Of society and you

Thunder rolling

And lightening flashing

*

Open skies and rolling oceans

We should hide less emotions

Cause no problems

That’s the notion

With true love and soul devotion

**

Don’t give people flack

For trying to be kind

It’s never okay to hate

Let calm open your mind

And with patience elevate

*

In true love

Only kindness urges

And every move we make emerges

Then the knowing fellow-soul

Connects again

Starts to show in surges

And the Earth becomes more whole

Love’s ground awakens new kind urges

**

Kind urges are smashing

No matter how dashing

They can turn out beautiful

And end up crashing

*

Depends on the view

Of society and you

Mountains rolling

And seasons flashing by

*

Open minds and rolling notions

We should dig more emotions

Cause no problems

Good life our quotient

With true love and soul devotion

A Mission

Building blocks for the future

Plans piled up from the past

Optimism forged in brighter days

Soul-fire not forgotten fast

Passion for life and the living

It takes just one kind thought to make a difference

One crucial moment to care

Say what you want

And think the same

Every thought carries a lot

As they grow and remain

Thoughts can be shared

And lead to many actions

Thoughts can make people well

As we conceive every last one

Realize that a better future

has a lot to do with

our decisions

Like bricks that we build with

Kindness a mission

One Step at a Time

On the doorstep

A shy little spider

Want some more webs

Can I come inside yet?

*

We climb the walls

Or crawl under the floor

And always want more

What the corners are for

The ceilings and halls

The creepy critter crawls

Creating a family

As the future falls

Tightly wrapping us up

Between the cracks 

Timid creature dives down

The world attacks

The other side of town

While we’re underground

We climb through rocks

Try to get to the core

And always want more

Beneath the surface

Ignored

Our feelings seem small

The creepy critter crawls

Craving a fantasy

As the future falls

Including all of us

*

In such a hurry

To make good things happen

We hope to never worry

I think I see a pattern

It would really help us out

If you share the benefit of the doubt

If you accept our effort

Where will the moment take us?

I think that’s what it’s all about

It is how we take it

One step at a time

Deeper into our mind

Thinking things out

While we’re hanging around

No shred of doubt

When the sky is our ground

We climb through thoughts

Flying high for a score

And always want more

In and out through the door

Engine never stalls

The creepy critter crawls

Cradle no fallacy

As the future falls

Sticking to all of our plans

*

Raising such fury

To make good things happen

We never have to scurry

If we stick to the pattern

It would really help us out

If we share the benefit of the doubt

If we make the effort

Where will the moment take us?

I think that’s what it’s all about

It is how we take it

Feasible Plan

Falling away from the future

That they had planned for me

Once beaten by words

not deserved

I made my plans long ago

I’m wondering 

but I’m not sure

How they still

Can not see

I made it clear with no fear

Still they think that they ought to know

What is possible for me

And the way it should be

Pulling away from the past

Finally found understanding

Time created with words

We now observe

I made my plans

clearly shown

I’m wondering

but I’m not sure

If they have

Just been seen

Love stays near with no fear

Life should show what it ought to show

What is possible

And the way it should be

The way it should be

Is no one left behind

No one should be left out

In the search for peace of mind 

The love we have

should

Extend to everyone it can

by Realizing that

Progress together

Is the

Only feasible plan

Anything is possible

A thought that we ought to know

and Understand

*

Hauling into the current time

Leaving ways that don’t stand for me

Don’t exaggerate with words

Or throw a curve

Those plans hard as stone

Never wandering

I am so sure

That we can

Still be free

Peace grows clear with no fear

Be sure you know what you ought to know

What is possible

And the way it should be

The way it should be

Is no one left behind

No one should be left out

From discovering peace of mind

The balance we have

should

Extend to everyone it can

Including each other

Everything is possible

A thought that we ought to know

New Days

Brave colours emerge

As the shadows of winter have retreated

Today is the face of new life

Like a new wave rippling

Past the clouds

To challenge the sordid storms of yesterday

Striking with intense rivulets of life

Unearthing buried dreams

Flourishing in our mind

and in our heart

*

Appropriate attire?

We dress for success

But a name itself 

Can rise from battling stress

Clamber to safety

or descend to our calm place

We are never too far from finding our ground again

Bitter days struggling lead to

New occasions

We shine again and at least contemplate peace

*

Stare through the protective darkness

Of the trees

Branches of life between us

Shelter eyes

Or fully shade

Days otherwise

Bare to the blinding brilliance of

Our closest star

Life-giving

And healing yet

Dangerous if too direct

Energy flowing

Impossible to live without

Like water and

Our thoughts

*

Laughter from above

Joined by a chorus far below

Rumors of change

Echo in the sun’s plans

But from where we stand

Excitement remains sparse

Onlookers still shiver

Fretting unseasonable weather

As if we are unprepared

And make light of the situation

Smiling full-heartedly

And with optimism

Hoping others follow

*

Some look down on

Spring flowers

Frown on the significance of

Sharing color

Frilled and flowing shapes

Reach out with the

Serious aesthetics of

Optimism and whimsy

Extend far past the sardonic rumbles of cynical critics

The detrimental frosty grips lose their touch as

Warmth arrives

*

Holding fire

And isolating energy

Waves reflect light

Intense like spirit

Through forever changing seasons

Heated vision comforts

Days impacted by neglect

Cold shoulders of the shore

Fade in and out of existence

New days

Trees rise as

Years submersed

Shapes drift

High and low

Bobbing until washed up

Or sinking till the end of time

Find Heaven Past All Hell

I cannot forget today
Yesterday: Maybe
But the future ahead
Is carried by the river
*
All things past
Even those left for dead
Can still strike a note
Make me shake and shiver
Excitement
Good or bad
But now I summon the energy
To bring tomorrow’s joy
For all of us waiting here
We hope life will deliver
*
The strangest thing I said
Went right to your head
And I’ll never get to explain how
The river bed rolls
And now the ground starts to move
The skies are shifting for the world we choose
I want to say
One time for sure
I am reaching out to you
I want you to be well
Find Heaven past all Hell
*
We can’t forget today
Yesterday is fading
And the future ahead
Is carried by the river
*
All things last
Once they get in our head
And can still strike a note
Time, gold or an old wood sliver
Fragments, Good or bad
Cleanse or craft connections
Now I summon the energy
To find tomorrow’s peace
With faith waiting here
We know life will deliver
*
The strangest thing I said
Seemed to go over your head
And I’ll never get to explain how
The river rocks roll
And now the ground starts to move
Vast skies are shifting for the world we choose
I want to say
One time for sure
I am reaching out to you
I want you to be well
Find Heaven past all Hell
*
Heaven beyond Hell
I thought it would never drop
Future stories to tell
Today must stay on top
I can’t get down
Without the sound
Beauty and movement
The river never stops
I want you to be forever well
The river starts to swell
Taking us straight through
Heaven past all hell
Find Heaven past all hell
*
I can’t forget today
All these current changes
And the future ahead
Is carried by the river

*
We will never know
How the river rocks roll
Until the river comes flowing through
And now the ground starts to move
Life’s skies are shifting for the world we choose
I want to say
One time for sure
I’m reaching out to you
I want you to be well
Find Heaven past all Hell

And a focus closely tied

To our deepest dreams

*

Ideas 3-2-1

Launch spontaneous compassion

Elevate what we do

Based on our pure empathy

Riding high above

Storm crashing moments later

Life has calm and chaos

If today is any indicator

**

Develop your good love

Better focus is a rushing breaker

Waves rolling high above

And crashing moments later

*

Washing over the dry shores

Then reaching back to the sea with their hands out

Waves change when energy transfers

A new day once our dreams’ waves have fanned out

*

Awake to the world

**

Plan the day ahead 

With a good attitude

Focus on your dreams

And remember what’s new

*

As the tides recede

Take all you need

And share good vibes with

Everyone you can think of

*

Awake to the world

Like a natural reaction

And a focus closely tied to our deepest dreams

Mood of the Day

Living in these times

Each day moves

Slow and deliberate

Towards survival and the mood of the day

*

Living in these times

Each hour improves

The flow when we’re into it

Of course, life-changing

With the mood of the day

*

I’ve reached the peak

I can’t be

Constantly

Out of my head

Out of my mind

Without soul

**

Be real and speak

I can’t be

Constantly

Out of my head

Out of my mind

Without soul and without connection

*

Living in these times

It’s these social grooves

The flow when we’re into it

Slow and delicate

Brings us our perspective

The mood of today

*

Find ways to get better

Together

For a better mood today

*

Don’t bottle-up emotion

Freedom is not just a notion

Be real and speak

Truth is not a freak

I want to say

Constantly

What comes to my head

What’s on my mind

From my soul

Living a lie is no way to grow old

We can’t be

Constantly 

Out of our heads

Out of our minds

Without soul and without connection

**

Living in these times

Each day moves

Slow and deliberate

Towards survival and the mood of the day

Living in these times

Each word we choose

So indefinite

Should be more engaging

For the mood of the day

I’ve reached the peak

I can’t Be

Constantly

Out of my head

Out of my mind

Without soul

Without All of you

Rock Bottom of Your Giving Heart

Floating and anchored

In the midst of a channel

A network to generate

Years of energy

*

Lifetimes of building

It helps when the plan gels

A connection to include

The insight of many

*

We flounder if unheard

We can sink unseen

The sound of the bottom

A call progress must heed

**

Rocks on the river bed

Need attention to be handled

With each step anticipate

Fluid energy

*

Lifetimes lining up

Sure ground is spanned out

The connection that we choose

Can affect so many

*

We wallow if unsure

We may drown if fractured

Care for the bottom

We must manufacture

**

Work for the river

Work to stream dreams

Listen for the ones you love

With no one in between

*

Hold our devoted life

Work to share our dreams

Look out for the ones you love

With no one in between

**

Find new days

Fully charged

Feel the feeling of all involved 

Take care and share 

Live life large

Open up to all the world

*

Be open to a lot more

And start living smart

Hear the sound all around

Be open to the bottom

Of your giving heart

**

Coasting way past shore

Turning wheels:

You won’t stand still

A future to generate

Pure life energy

*

Lifetimes supplying

Freedom that’s planned out

A connection we can’t lose

We’re counting on so many

*

We wind down if unheard

We wash away unseen

Bump the bass

To unburden the bottom

And build it into our dreams

**

Work for the river

Work to stream dreams

Listen for the ones you love

With no one in between

*

Hold our devoted life

Work to share our dreams

Look up to the ones you love

With no one in between

**

Find new days

Fully charged

Feel the feeling of all involved 

Take care and share 

Live life large

Open up to all the world

Be open to a lot more

And start living smart

Hear the sound of all around

Be open to the rock bottom

Of your giving heart

Just Stay True

Maybe I seem all over the place

Maybe I crossed the line

But there’s no other way to live my life

And I know I’m doing fine

*

We walk a fine line

No matter what we do

We can walk the straight and narrow

But have a hard time getting through

*

You are you

Do what you do

Just stay true

Don’t change

*

Maybe I seem like I’m from outer space

Maybe I’m out of time

But there’s no other way to live my life

And I know I’m doing fine

*

We age like fine wine

With all that we do

Like going over the falls in a barrel

Our best flavours coming through

*

You are you

Do what you do

Just stay true

And get better

*

You are you

Do what you do

Just stay true

To your very best

*

Hold on tight to what you think is right

Just take time to weigh the options

Use your common sense

Don’t be too tense

You can be bold and brave

Choose the world you save

But with any fine line

It’s usually best

To remain somewhat cautious

*

Maybe it seems like I’m caught in the chase 

Maybe I’m falling behind

But there’s no other way to live my life

And I know I’m doing fine

*

We make up our mind

It’s what we have to do

We can build our dreams like a Pharaoh

So time will forever run through

*

You are you

Do what you do

Just stay true

Life matters

Night’s Music

At night awake in my bed

Sound of rain coming down

Like an orchestra

Full of enthusiastic emotion

*

Light has forsaken the dead

Whipping branches thrashing

Blustery eavesdrop splashing

Twigs in chorus claw

Percussion

The gutters’ devotion

*

High pitch notes

All they know

Fast finger tips flow on

A wild and wet winter piano

*

Night awakes in my head

Now a train’s familiar sound

With it’s focused blasts

Fast wheels whir and hum with emotion

For miles shaking the dead

Whistling past each crossing

Twisting, turning and tossing

Tracks squealing metal

Each car shudders

Nightmares and dreams in motion

Soothing notes

As they roll

Like on a moonlight stroll

Sinking into sunrise and my mind’s goals

*

Day and night

Bright sound

All around

Mighty music moving fast

Emotion always coming down

Rain

A symphony

Sunshine

Comes down in blasts

Emotion coming from the sound

The mood in our mind often lasts

Awake at night

Bright sound all around

Mighty music moving fast

Emotion always coming around

Get up or down

The spell is cast

*

“Can’t take the night,” I’ve never said

Found my pain is calming down

The torch is passed

Now I can celebrate emotion

Just can’t fake it to get ahead

After days we’re crashing

A positive attitude is smashing

This life is such a blast

No rushing

The independent notion

The purest notes

We’ll ever know

When our dreams grow and flow

Into the optimistic tomorrow

To survive

Must compete

When we’re a team and minds meet

Calm care can’t be beat

Now look ahead so fiercely

I find myself in some heat

Fire moves my machine

So alive

Time we meet

Sky and steam tastes so sweet

Nightmares to defeat

Live the dream to succeed

And that’s how we’re

Complete

Whatever happens

It gets easier

For all of us  to win

Up against the world

We strive

To succeed

For us all to have a chance

For us all to have a chance

In this wild romance

Love to sing and dance

You had me at first glance

Movement- A Dance

Frozen as if in the deepest, winding dream

In the farthest corner of the swirling room

Trying hard just to reach out

Caught fast as distant, inviting eyes gleam

My body still can’t make a single move

The music plays, breaching loud

For moments that seem to last forever

I’m cemented tight, locked in my spot

Suddenly released, shy chains are severed

As my temperature rises, rocking hot

Breaking clean, Pulled by the freedom machine

Outside gravity and into this grooving scene

Every ounce of energy focused on the soothing beat

Shaking, stretching, pumping limbs and my entire core

Leaving absolutely no question as to what movement is for

What Matters Most

Let’s talk about what you want

What matters the most?

Improve quality of lfe you say?

I hold this thought very close

Life we should cherish

Share energy

Towards comfort and joy

Let only feelings of misery perish

And may minor differences never annoy

We breathe, we grow

We think, we know

Life and the way it goes

Really?

Let’s talk about what you want

It matters most

Improve quality of life this way

With key words that you chose

Life we should salvage

Extend energy

Towards comfort and joy

Respect feelings of misery and wreckage

And may rebuilding keep us fairly employed

We breathe, the flow

We think, we know

Life and the way it goes

*

We do know a lot

About how life goes for us

Sometimes people think

We don’t know much

You are different and

When you talk to me

You share a piece of your mind

I hold these thoughts close to me

Because they are wise and kind

Words are a great thing when they help

The life that we know

We breathe fast or slow

We think

We know

Life and the way it goes

Words are a great thing when they help

Words are a great thing

When they help

The life that we know

We must breathe, the undertow

We act we know

We breathe soft and low

We speak and we know

About life and the way it goes

Comfort and Peace

The most amazing and breathtaking nature

Compels me to stay forever

A goal that will never go away

Time delivers a memory that will stay

The vision of life

The best times

Will always thrill me

The breeze lifts my spirit

Feels magnetic

Enhances my experience

It’s a feeling that I savour

*

The most devastating and crushing situation

Feels like it will last forever

A truth that will never go away

Time introduces a memory that will stay

The vision of life

The worst times

Will always kill me

The horror traps my spirit

Feels pathetic

Circumstance of experience

It’s a feeling of intense labour

*

High life or rock bottom

In between feels okay?

Top prizes we spot them

Tough times, please go away

Crawl through days of anguish

Get back to where we are okay again

Then one day, the sky’s it’s bluest

We climb up to be on top again

And down below where people suffer

We offer things

They can’t get enough of

Comfort and peace

What happens then?

High life or rock bottom

Want to get up high to stay?

Top prizes we’ve got them

Tough times must fade away

Fly through days so vibrant

Get back to the ground and Earth again

Then one day when worries are fewest

We climb up to be on top again

In between if people suffer

We offer things

They don’t have enough of

Comfort and peace

Until the end

Mind Over Matter

I want to share my dreams with you

Mind over matter

as I walk across hot coals

I want to build strong teams with you

Life on a platter

As I talk the talk

For our top goals

A level playing field?

Make money flatter

Mind over matter

Flooded deep

Or on fire

Spread resources

OUR need is dire

*

I want to share my dreams with you

Mind over matter

as I walk through hard card walls

I want to build strong teams with you

Life doesn’t shatter

As I walk the walk

For our cold calls

Fair deals come to the table?

Make money flatter

Mind over matter

All classes stable

Maxed-out desire

Sharing resources

To take our game higher

*

How can I share my dreams

Without a level playing field?

They ask for so much more

As if I have a perfect basic yield

How can I share my dreams

Without fair deals coming to the table?

They want so much more

They often want more than we are able

With no fair pay for hard labour

They want us to climb the ladder

My dreams are for our best world

With heart and soul

And mind over matter

*

I want to share my dreams with you

Mind over matter

as I walk across water

I want to build strong teams with you

Life of a mad hatter

As I rock the rock

For hard core hotter

A mountain ahead to climb?

Make money flatter

Mind over matter

We’re losing time

Down to the wire

All share resources

To help us all rise higher

*

How can I share my dreams

If they don’t seem to matter?

They want so much more

Like we are all some grand slam batter

How can I share my dreams

If they just crash and clatter?

The world demands so much more

The system needs way more chatter

That’s why I offer my dreams of a world

Where money gets much flatter

All it will take to make it happen

Is to use more mind over matter

A Better Spin

Sometimes we put our feelings

Out there

If they are ironclad

We don’t mind doing that

The weight is heavy

But we are protected from the arrows of

Question

Ridicule

And most opposition 

We hang it out there

Our hearts softly vulnerable

But metal gears

Poetry in motion

Musical beat

*

Rolling rock is

Charging on

Down the road

Totally original

History explains to us

why one is

not just another freak

Could not explain

The reach of the amazing juggernaut

Driven directly down

And blazing as we dug her hot

Sunny thinking

Shadows’ memory

Mere moments fade as

Tomorrow glows

*

Sometimes we put our feelings

Out there

Sometimes out on a limb

Soon: a bird on a wing

The heights are wild

But we are protected from the talons of

Apprehension

Nervousness

And higher opposition

We spread it out here

Our hearts hardly vulnerable

Now flying free

Poetry in motion

Musical beat

*

Soaring hawk is

Charging on

Above the road

Totally original

History explains to us

why one is

not just another freak

Could not explain

The reach of the amazing juggernaut

Ascending straight up

And shining as she has her shot

Now sun is sinking

Earth’s memory

Lost moments return

As tree tops pose

*

Musical beat

like feet on a branch

Walking the street

or coming in to land

A juggernaut

She’s the time we’ve got

The sun goes up

The sun comes down

To stay on top

We follow right around

Poetry in motion

It’s the way we look at it

We can’t getDown

If we don’t give in

We get straight up

With a better spin

*

Sometimes we put our feelings

Out there

If they are in tact

it’s best to do that

Sharing connects us

And we are protected from all times

No comparison

Stereotypes

or tiresome opposition

We climb over the hill

Our hearts mutually vulnerable

Machines appear

Poetry in motion

Musical beat

Lucid talk is

Charging on

Up this road

Totally original

History explains to us

why one is

not just another freak

Could not explain

The reach of the amazing juggernaut

Heading right around

And staying on course with her spot

For calm thinking

Today’s memory

Moments to make peace

Find future so close

Musical beat

like heating up plans

Perfectly complete

For the causes we stand

A juggernaut

She’s the time we’ve got

The sun goes up

The sun comes down

To stay on top

Poetry in motion

It’s the way we look at it

We can’t get down

If we don’t give in

Stormy Night

Hope is on the horizon

The future is alive

But it’s a stormy night outside

Such a stormy night

Faith is placed in tomorrow

Our future will arrive

But it’s a stormy night outside

Another stormy night

Don’t mistake a calm bright day

As a break from the action

And don’t forget your peace of mind

If the storm has no distraction

Hope keeps us dialed-in

For future dreams we strive

It’s a stormy night tonight

A harsh and stormy night

Faith, you may have to borrow

Friendship helps us thrive

Optimism finds the light to get by

Every stormy night

Aim for no conflicting desire

What do we all really want?

Storms rage on endlessly

There’s a wicked storm tonight

No damage taken

The life we’re making

Stands up to any storm

The others took it

While we weren’t looking

We share feelings

Now our connection is warm

Now we’re living up to it

As we try to keep

Giving for the greater good

Won’t hit rock bottom

But the thunder is rolling

Just like we knew it would

Stormy night

And bright lights to pull us through

Stormy night

Can make our dreams come true

If we can get through hard times

We find a better point of view

Can change our point of view

Brace for the worst

Strive for the best

Alright Again

Sunset to sunrise

Deep dreams in minds’ eyes

We find our world

And in daytime we rise again

*

Sunrise to sunset

Day dreams, a safe bet

We search for our world

In our minds’ eyes

Until it is prized again

*

For moments or even hours

We may miss life’s special powers

But when we seize the day and the night

Life’s dreams hit

New highs again

Sunset to sunrise

Passing dreams, the night hides

Till we find our star

And daytime finds the light again

Sunrise to sunset

Waking dreams we always get

Immersed in sun

In our minds’ eyes

Until their demise again

*

Smouldering in evening hours

Into night, blackness devours

But when we seize the day and the night

Life’s dreams hit new heights again

*

Whether we embrace

Darkest night

Or challenge the brightest day

Dreams can remain forever true

And never go away

They may seem to fade

Disappear out of sight for a while

But if we hold on tight

And have a caring style

They come surging through dull clouds

Lighting up the skies

Growing like trees and towers

Through any sunset and each sunrise

*

Sunset to sunrise

Deep dreams in minds’ eyes

We find our world

Each daytime we rise again

*

Sunrise to sunset

Day dreams we just met

We develop in our world

In our minds’ eyes

Until they are wise again

*

Over years or in even hours

We invest in life’s special powers

And when we seize the day and night

New dreams hit life’s skies again

*

Whether we embrace moon and stars at night

Blue or grey throughout our day

Some dreams become forever true

And always choose to stay

They may find the shade

Become unclear or less bright with a smile

Then when we hold on tight

And keep a caring style

They emerge from dark clouds

All nightmares subside

Storms ease to breeze and showers

We face any sunset and each sunrise

*

Like a waterfall

Stars and moonbeams play

Sunshine splashes down

Now true dreams stay

*

Sunset to sunrise

Deep dreams in minds’ eyes

We find our world

When we find our light again

*

Sunrise to sunset

Daydream a sure bet

We see day and night

With our minds’ eyes

Until life feels alright again

Holding on to our dreams

With a caring style

Helps life to be quite alright again

Move and Soothe

One by one

Click off the sun

Wondering more than anyone

What the night will bring

When we dance and sing

Our mood won’t be left in silence

Sharing and caring

Being more aware and

All of us staying in a groove

We all feel known

All on our own

As the energy of the room

Moves and soothes

And you move and soothe

One by one

The days are done

Our time in the light

Was so much fun

Now a star’s voice in the night rings

And we dance and sing

Approved daily-grind defiance

Sharing and caring

Being more aware and

All of us staying in a groove

We all feel known

When we take that tone

Derived from the energy of you

And with music

We move to the moon

We move to the moon

Sway with the stars

Our favourite tune

In cars or in bars

Underneath our feet

And above our heads

Reality in streets

And dreams in our beds

The music can’t hide

If we find it inside

Hard-core on the road

Soft spots that have showed

We all want

The music to shine through

*

One by one

The moon

We have won

To win night and day

We take the long run

We do the Night thing

When we dance and sing

The moon and stars our only guidance

Sharing and caring

Being more aware and

All of us staying in a groove

We all feel known

Down to the bone

As the energy of the tunes

Moves and soothes

And we move and soothe

Pretty Wicked

You said in your head

“That’s pretty wicked”

I said “You haven’t seen anything yet”

You raised me to be fair

I’m always aware

Of your brilliance

The star of our dreams

You’ve given me all I need

Naturally being and seeing

A goddess who’s got all of me

Goddamn or God Bless!

All so very wicked

And you are pretty wicked to me

*


Tantalising

Not compromising

Anything for taste

Working harder than a

Truck motor

Winning any race

To keep it even you’re a steamroller

And I’m just keeping pace

If I ever stepped out of line

I know you’d put me in my place

And when we both step it up together

There’s nothing we can’t face

*


You said what you meant

That’s pretty wicked

You said I haven’t seen anything yet

You raised me not to stare

I’m always aware

Of your beauty

The world of our dreams

You’ve given me all I need

Naturally being and seeing

A goddess who’s got all of me

Goddamn or God Bless

All so wildly wicked

And you are pretty wicked to me

*


Strategizing

And improvising

Anything for peace

Working smarter than a computer brain

Human energies increase

To keep it going, you’re a freight train

Our love will never cease

The way we connect on the line

I know the brakes we can release

And when we both get rolling together

Pure kindness is our grease

*


You said it again “That’s pretty wicked”

I feel we haven’t seen anything yet

You raised me to take care

I’m always aware

Of your resilience

The rebirth of our dreams

You’ve given me all I need

Naturally being and seeing

A goddess who’s got all of me

Goddamn! GodBless!

You are pretty wicked

In fact: Totally wicked to me

Seasons Rolling with the Wind (Etched into Eternity)

Quiet now

Except for poetry

Sprawling seas of Winter

Before us

Frozen like thoughts

Criss-crossing in alternate dimensions

Storming through the yard

Covering all the bases

The run home is celebrated

As a marathon

With banners of all colours

Rolling with the wind

And etched into eternity

*

Loud sound

It is my heartbeat

Breathing into the Spring

to follow

Waking like ideas

Roots rising through immaculate ascensions

Bursting into all time

Until standing for the ages

The highest branches

Bearing gifts

Ripened for the gods

With promise of all colours

Rolling with the wind

We catch them with eternity

*

A sign of the times

A door to the future

We express ourselves

Out here on the fringe

The stars guide us

As the handle turns fast

Moving our dreams on the hinge

The year here rotates

Around the sun

No need to be subtle about poetry

The music you share helps everyone

They say:

I love every note you devote to me

*

Quiet no more

In favour of poetry

Living fields of Summer

Before us

Dancing like thoughts

Swaying through allternate dimensions

Heating up the moment

Wavering mirage replaces

The far road that’s anticipated

As a brand new song

With a myriad of all colours

Rolling with the wind

And stretched into eternity

*

Loudness in store

This is my heartbeat

Pounding right through the Fall

to follow

Raking in ideas

Souls rising with whirlwind ascension

Versing all time

Constantly flowing through the ages

The highest branches bearing gifts

Enlightened by the gods

With mixing of all colours

Rolling with the wind

In touch with eternity

Opening Their Eyes

If we don’t look back

They may never attack

Still all the same

Let’s stay ahead of the game

*

I am quite sure you know

About the truth in my life

Except from their angle

They brandish it like a knife

*

There’s no cure more pure

Than opening their eyes

A drop of rain wakes

Or sunshine through the blinds

**

If we don’t look back

We can still lead the pack

Still with the blame

We may have to clear our name

I am quite sure you know

That the truth is most wise

Except from their angle

They benefit from lies

There’s no cure more pure

Than opening their eyes

To stop the pain breaks

Illusion in their minds

I’m dedicated to the truth

More intense than the scenery

I’m betting we make it through

I’m dedicated to you

I’m dedicated to me

I’m dead to the world

And I don’t want to be

The cure for the situation

Is for all of us to be free

Free from harmful close-minded vision

And open to total equity

**

If we don’t look back

We will miss out on fact

We all find fame

If we can stake each claim

*

I am quite sure you know

That the truth still can shine

Except from their angle

It seems like a fine line

There’s no cure more pure

Than opening their eyes

The path lightening takes

A bright past to the future binds

Clouding over the sun

With faith in myself

Feel the sun or the rain

Until life’s better again

And to make it best

I love the rest

Hold tight until we’re ready

Mind slammers

Wise, true days

Inspired hearts

Are more than a phase

*

Moving parts

In my head

Got it all figured out

When the world comes along

Without a doubt

Clouds fade in the sun

A star for everyone

We can never go wrong

If we know what life’s about

Hardwired (Kind Mission)

You think I don’t do much

And that I’m so far out of touch

I’ll tell you right now

I’m hardwired to the system

*

It’s not my kindness that’s a crutch

And my honesty is clutch

I think that somehow

We should find new ways

to connect for a better system

*

Always speak our mind

Whatever comes to us

Always care enough

and always and forever

share and listen

*

You think I’m a pushover

And I’ll fall hard for a joker

I’ll tell you now

I’m hardwired to the system

*

It’s not my way to be a floater

I’m strapped in this roller coaster

I think somehow

We must find sure ways

To promote a better system

*

Always speak our mind

Discuss what affects us

Find ways to prepare enough

And always and forever

Share a kinder mission

*

Say what you want to say

Just find ways to care enough

About the future and the past

And the present day, calm or rough

*

Say what you want to say

Just make sure to care enough

For the people and the life on Earth

And all the righteous stuff

*

Say it loud

Say it proud

Say anything to promote

A kinder mission

Always share and look and listen

To connect for a better system

*

Inside we each

Think that we are right

And push

For our own causes

We all want more

Victories

But still

We all

Have losses

Weigh our defeats

And balance our wins

Compare the battle of everyone here

Suffering to begin with

Should be eliminated

Share peace to be absolutely clear

In sharing kindness

We should never have to fear

*

You think I’m all for show

Or that my softness has to go

I’ll tell you right now

I’m hardwired to the system

*


If it’s not kindness that you know

I may just go with the flow

I think somehow

We should find

Better ways of connecting

To the system

*


Always speak our mind

Nothing to come between us

Always fair enough

And always and forever

Share and lsten

What’s Next?

There’s always something

It’s inescapable!

We hope to catch a break

As we patiently wait

And with faith

We unknowingly shape it all

*

What’s Next?

There’s always something going on

It’s our fate and calling that moves us

In between

The good times and hard times

Break of dawn

And another night

Every passage of time includes us

*

Each day we live will have it’s trials

The rest of time

should be

filled with smiles

We search for peace

We search for glory

We work for the best parts of the story

And for you

Absolute Best of

Wishes

I hope with you

The next piece we choose

Makes the quest

Just so delicious

Order up!

It’s undebatable!

The future takes the cake

As we patiently wait

And with faith

We won’t ever forsake it all

Whats Next?

There’s always something going on

It’s our state of mind that moves us

In between

The good and hard times

Hours gone

And a new day’s light

Every second of time

Can improve us

*

Each day we live, we walk the miles

On the way, we find our own true styles

We search for peace

We search for glory

We do our best

So there’s no need to be sorry

And for you

We will find ways to

Not seem suspicious

I hope with you

Life’s challenges prove

Fair as dreams

And never vicious

Top of my mind

Front of the line

Next!

Catch the Keys

Holding the keys to reality

Digging through the day

I can see the gears turning

But also many heads

Turning far away

Best intentions crumpled up

and thrown away like trash

Humbled by a lack of interest

Discouraged by the cash

The lack of engagement

The lack of care

For basic humanity

At every level of society

It seems so hard to believe

*

Holding the keys to reality

Twisting through the day

I can hear the gears turning

But also wheels

Turning far away

Best intentions all mixed up

Miss the targets and crash

Jumbled by a lack of communication

Discouraged by the cash

The lack of engagement

The lack of care

For basic humanity

At every level of society

It seems so hard to believe

*

The door to the universe

Is opened by the keys to reality

We all have them on our chains

If we can get them free


Locked out by being close-minded

or expressing negativity

All we really need

Is optimistic vision

And total empathy


*

Turn the key to reality

Unlock each day and night

With calm optimism

And far-reaching empathy

*

WTF you say

Yah me too

It seems like hypocrisy!

Doing all that we can do

Watch a big screen show

See their views, you know

Empathy, Optimism

And buy a brand new day

Go as far down as we can go

Act with kindness

As far as we can stretch

You want the keys to reality?

Here!

Can you catch?

*

Told that the keys to reality

Are always with us through the day

We are the gears turning

But also timely hands

Turning far away

Best intentions thrown straight up

In hopes that you will catch

Fumbled by lack of synergy

Discouraged by no cash

The lack of engagement

The lack of care

For basic humanity

We all need optimism and empathy

What do you believe?

The Undertone

1

Bellowing rhyme

Breath to the flame

Harrowing time

No death for our name

Celebration of life

Crackling branches’ doom

No concentration on strife

Or for disagreement, sulk and fume

*

Awake to the sea and fire in the sky

Land full of vital forests fading fast

Pray for rain

Living pyres, on Earth quickly die

Suddenly the sea rises

Quells life’s blazing blasts

2

Come what may

Seize the day

Make our way

To centre stage

Can’t refuse

Social cues

Still we choose

Our own sage

Never standing all alone

Never leaving Earth our home

Have no fear

Show the rest

Each day cheers

Kindness best

Find the mindset to reach the zone

Where deep-seated comfort’s known

Strong as a rollng stone

Lightening, the undertone

3

Harvesting words

Top of our claim

Hardest thing heard

Propels us to fame

Actualization of life

Branches weighed down soon

Cutting edge of the knife

A history bent, Spoon to consume

*

Awake to our need, Inspired to get by

Plate full of vital chorus raises fast

And fills again

Heavenly choir

Star-birth season high

Sudden cloud rises

And stalls life dreams, so vast

4

Come what may

Seize the day

Make our way

Out of the cage

Don’t refuse

Social cues

But we choose

Our own stage

Never standing all alone

Daily leaving Earth our home

Have no fear

Show the rest

Each day here

Health we test

Find the mindset to reach the zone

Where deep-seated comfort’s known

Strong as we become known

Inviting the undertone

5

The farthest from the truth

And from our space here

Is a moment away

Clearly

In the universal mirror

Look into our seasons

Don’t change our mind

Release the chains of future fear

Put everything into the day, and year and time

Turn over a new leaf

Pay attention to any colour

Be sure to let the good times roll

And work hard for every other

6

Reciting ritual

Breath to the same

Igniting habitual

Routine to keep us sane

Weaving magic of life

Doubting branches loom

No hesitation to new sight

Or miss a dream, Sent by the moon

Awake to freedom higher than the sky

Days full of Vital shores, So wade fast

Hours wane

Life dire on Earth, Let’s ask why

Sudden question rises

A spell, for life’s answers cast

7

Come what may

Seize the day

Make our way

To a fair wage

Won’t refuse

Social cues

We must choose

A new page

Never standing all alone

Never leaving work, our home

Have no fear

Show the rest

Each day clear

Hot off the press

Find the mindset to reach the zone

Where deep-seated comfort’s known

Strong as a body’s bone

Black and white the undertone

8

The closest to the truth

In all space far and near

Each moment we live

Clearly

In the universal gears

Look into our reason

You may change your mind

Release the chains of future fear

Put effort into the day, and year and time

Turn over a new engine

Pay attention to Any make and model

Work to get good times rolling

And if it’s best for the world:

Be sure to hit full throttle

To save this place

And take a bow

Nothing we do

Should be taken for granted

Help us get better

For the bottom line

Dream Smart

Break of day is running free


Has to be insanity


That’s just the way it seems to be


Although quite clearly


The truth is more surprising

*


Make our way


Have fun with me


Think you get causality?


Things aren’t always what they seem to be

*


What we think is only science


When broadly understood


Just for you is fantasy


Dream smart to keep it good

**


Breaking day is crushing me


Why use the word “insanity?”


Is that the way it seems to be?


Because quite clearly


The truth seems too compromising

*


Make your way


You are done with me


Think you get causality?


Things may turn out the way you see

*


What we need is an alliance


Where we care like we should


Follow through on plans we need


Work smart to make life good

**

I remember the days of my youth


And the truth


I couldn’t have told anyone else


Then you took my hand


And I still understand


This is something


I’ve always wanted and calmly felt

*


We should work hard


AND work smarter


Do both until we can


Rely on the day


To take care of itself


and Everybody else

**


Break of day is drowning me


It’s what you call ”insanity”


Look deep into the way it seems to be


Quite clearly


Truth is more than all the mind sees

*


Find our way


Get blunt with me


Challenging causality


Include synchronicity

*


What we think is still science


But just may be misunderstood


Get up to take the stand we need


Dream hard to make life good

No doubt about it

We need each other

Don’t want a random

Don’t want another

We start the day

Get on with the hours

Make our own way

With special powers

Patience

Perseverance

Rock

Metal and flowers

Finish the day

No doubt about it

We want each other

Don’t need a random

Don’t need another

Driving down the street

Feeling totally complete

The sky and roads are clear

Radio sets the beat

Music in our ear

Going where we’re going

We are calmly chatting

About everything we’re knowing

Love is all around

That’s what matters most

In the city or the country

And from coast to coast

*

Never stop at all the stops

But we stop at many

Feeling good is what we’re after

We want our days and we find plenty

Hop on a plane

Or the highway

Or stay where we are staying

Endeavoring together

We are never lost again

No doubt about it

We need each other

Don’t want a random

Don’t want another

We start the day

Get on with the hours

Make our own way

Finish the day

Our energy towers

Life remains ours

Here’s a day

Let’s take it

Dedicated bees to the hive

Behold the queen

Driving us out on our journey

Some triumph

With great pots of gold

Entrusted to the scoundrels of the classes

Who would think to hoard and deprive?

Just like a king

Of time

Providing new routes for our journey

Some triumph and

With great thoughts grow old

Some may be forever hurting

When I think of the world that I live in

I consider the place of my birth

But it’s not just me

It’s all of us living here

It just makes sense to care for our Earth

When we think of the home that we live in

We consider what’s needed and treats

But it’s not just me

It’s all of us living here

Some in buildings and some on streets

Think Home

Thrust into the quarrel that passes

Who would think to hoard and deprive?

Not me

I’m sure

but all the while…

We are all

Bickering like kids to survive


The future is ours

Our child

Of Love

Caring about all of our journey

Some triumph

With myths, great, taught and told

Some will be forever learning

Over the Bridge

***

In the forest


Past the edge of town


A Troll lives under a bridge


A nasty hopping troll


No tourist here


Hops fast over the hedge


He frowns and furrows his brow


And examines tracks in the dirt

Says to himself


“Who passed here?!


How’d they get by


Without me knowing?


It makes me mad


and I feel hurt”


*


A hunched and greasy Troll


Squished through branches of the hedge


Claw caught his arm


Tree-nails scratching flesh


But the plant didn’t care


“Home needs repair”


He seethed and scrambled down the bank


Attacked the cliff as if it was stairs


“Why won’t the passerby help me out?


It really isn’t fair”


*


The troll seemed unsettled


For all of time


Follows uneven ground


Down to the stream


He shuffled and slid


Rocks tumble and skid


Chasing the forest


Madly into a dream


Found some refuge


Curled in the base of a tree


No one amused


They thought his rock free


As if he used grime


As a ruse to confuse


*


Grime and filth of roads


We creep along


Folk jump lines


Squashing trolls like toads


Can’t wait for a new day


“More! More!”


Humans cry


Glazed eyes


Troll stares


into a thoughtless sky


Reaching out to catch clouds’


Gold and silver lining


Grace finds


Fallen angels flying


By sharing psyche


Divining


*


Out of the sky


As if from a cocoon


The grim Troll was greeted by wings

On fire


Inspired


To take him higher


And never again to sink


Was it truth, justice or human equity?


Or was it another wild delusion?


Free living or a dragon


Or someone to flag down


To share Love


With food and kinder amusement?


*


The mood had to do


with the attitude


All loose


Unrefined


was nothing to compare to


Sailing heights he could find

and deep insights


Rising from finding beauty in the world


Something that shouldn’t be disguised


And Never would be compromised


No matter how far down he climbed


The angel revived him


*


Above all and winding higher


No one anticipated such a fire


Melting candles


We must acquire

Illuminate shared desire


Day and night a glow on


The horizon


Words bestow way more pride on


When society reaches out


To help one stay strong


Fly through life fast and fair


And calmly stay aware of


Which side of life’s road


Light might shine on


And stay right on


*


Problem with angels


Timelessly old


Robbing angles


Of folks


Like this hopeless troll


Certain light


Helps his fight


And at times makes it right


But in blackest night


Even divinity struggles


No affinity for his social bubbles


Beauty of a butterfly


Form of psyche


Can’t occupy seclusion


Troll looks down says


“No one likes me”


*


“But I like you”


Came a voice booming from above


“Your choice is


Doom or true blue love”


The bottom dweller and bridge-haunting fiend


Thought about it and did not want greed


“Damn it all!

If this is the end


This is my last call


I take Doom”


In giving up hope

That was his fall


He lost all scope


and swung his rope


*


All twisted and tangled and totally misled


Tied up tight


Troll then turned and said


“I must get free from this tumultuous thread!”


He gazed up

with the beast


Flying over his head


And thought for one moment


Soon he’d be dead


Then the sky seemed to open


Yet when predator’s eyes turned to red


Kind guardian overlords took over instead


*


The force of fierce friends


Takes shapes that can shift


Lends assurance of life


So his energy lifts


Pigeons around Troll’s home


Under the bridge


Gave him spirit to rise up


Past any cliff


Past self-doubt


And fear


Past moods that can drift


And past any predators


That have caught a whiff


*


Down on the grass


Sitting ducks launch


Into the water


To get off the raunch


The stench of the Troll


Like water off their back


Attracts the worst in people


Not kept on track


Even wild friends swim to be clean


The black of the unknown


In kind light grows to green


Death of shared hope


is the most obscene


*


Then seeing the Troll under the bridge


Folks walking by were still having fits


“He’s creepy


Dangerous


And coming over the ridge


Push him down


He’s a clown


He fakes weeping


To prey on us


Quick


Save the kids”


But what they didn’t know was this:


The troll was one of them


Yet they threw him down in the ditch


*


Most folk spite him


Though he’d been enlightned


Life under the bridge:


So very frightening


He knew inside


His ideas were alright and


All their lies so up high still


He worked on his pitch


As they closed their eyelids


And gave him mountains to climb


They’re rich yet deprived him


No matter what good he did


His insight never would find them


*


“I think I’m here because of my luck


Some things I do

Help me on my way


What I started with


And the structure of the system


truly landed me here


in every single way”


The path laid past the true person


As he made his way down the line


He gained energy

from the joy in life he could find

with survival and kindness in mind


*


As he struts down the path


And shares passion in a breath


It’s as if no one cares


Except those that have wrath


Or others that laugh


With but not at


Those that do


Are so few


Put him to the test


Though he’s already stressed


It’s confessed that he’s blessed


And he worries about the rest


*


Typical adventure


To wish the best and be prevented


From doing what he meant to


Redemption


That never went through


But when he tried again


Friendship felt heaven sent


His words are gentle


The passerby didn’t comprehend them


Until they reached their potential


to blend in more mental health


As intended


*


“Oh my God


The hand I’m dealt”


the Troll-Person sighed


And deeply felt


“If they could share my thoughts


And into my dreams melt


To build mental health


There is no greater wealth!”


The Troll’s ability to adapt


Moved him past the bridge


Into the world he aimed to help


Their indifference was the only hitch


*


Regarding moving on


Some ties were hacked and severed


Not by his own choice


His pride: never in fact that clever


Those most annoyed


Slightly


Impacted by the weather


Forever but in the instant tethered


to the acting soul


Like a feather in his cap


Blowing as fast as


The brevity of wit could ever


*


Though certain trees had fallen

along his walk out of the forest


He knew to make his home here

To build each day up


With kind morals


And when his friend came out of the sky

To help with his chorus


The adventure was just getting underway


And honesty opens doors best


While patience is the core test


*


Reaching from the sky


Partly reflected from the past


A sign of things to come for sure


With changes coming fast


All around him today dropped down


So numb the skies were overcast


The world in metamorphosis


The old year still to pass


Shapes hidden cold and grey


Bursting through all shadows


Into a sudden place to stay


Everyone that’s glad knows


*


Before he could reach that place to bide


Where warmth


Comfort and companionship hide


He trudged through hills and mountains wide


And thought of the days under the bridge

he had lied


Where many folks had quietly died


And until now no one had cried


And when his icy tears were dried


He twisted the knob and went inside


*


Opening the door


Stumbling into the house


After such a long journey


He no longer had doubts


The Person


Not a Troll


Never screams and shouts


like a grouch


Found life and had past

for which he could vouch


Moments of truth bringing joy


still hide and crouch


Until in front of him


A fierce beast on the couch


*


Hunger they shared was


Insatiable


Showing no fear

Though death was near

Respect kept him clear

Teeth glistening

Hair or their necks bristling

Tongues whistling

Taste of love dripping life

They gave it all


Quite scared

but effort made both their lives savable


All the demands to be strong and courageous

They digested in stages


Both must be appeased


To keep their world safe as


Under the bridge places


In most cases


Truly cruel and outrageous


Despite both being


Totally capable


*


Run across the galaxy


Hold onto gravity


When the world throws us storms and fire


Look ahead


Life will inspire


Whether under a rock


Or far under the road


When optimistic


A prince shown from a toad


Dig for kindness and find it


Different light


Don’t mind it


Failure is a fallacy


New experience is all we need


*


The beast and the person


In total immersion


Of life’s changing ways


There’s always new days


The loss of one


Brings another


Into time and space


They follow the river


And go under the bridge


Find light under the sky


or black as pitch


If to each other


They have aversion


Time to move on


Or work it out


Take another excursion

That’s life

To be sure of


*

An emotional sunshine


Climbing to new highs


Or falling through the skies


ON understanding they balance


Between peaks and branches


The person we see


Pure and free


or caught up could be


the Troll or a Beast


or you or me


Time takes it’s toll


Yet if the dynamics roll right


Pain loses the fight


And comfort takes over the light


*


Descending towards night


Or rising for all days


Our breath


The Earth


As we travel


Changes


Under and


Over


Ancient archways


As to the sun and


Wretched disparity that’s


Done


There is always


Light


Hold all life as one


Aim for respect and empathy


Never shun


Better understanding


And with optimism


There are resources

For everyone

Only then our bridge is won

And no Person or Troll

Is left with none

Ot under the gun

Or on the run

Growing cold and old

With no love or fun

Or what folks want

Not bought or sold

Without dignity

Or stunned

Fairly allowed to live like anyone

A tale to be told

Or spun

Only of peace

Love

and new Freedom

Just

True

Freedom

Something in Between

* This is one of the first lyrics I wrote, written in the late 1980’s or early 90’s. I did some revisions recently and have the guitar ready to go for my next podcast…. Dark but with ideas of brightness.

***

Sky is endless black and

Stars are forever bright

My eyes fill with fire

Burning in the night

Dancing demons

or Singing angels

These timid strangers lead to unseen dangers

*

My mind drifts deep

As I close my eyes tight

My body falls asleep

As I’m pulled into the night

Spirits fly high

But my body waits below

I fight to free my soul

With everything I know

*

We use our love to conquer all fear

We have gained control

 so We are safe here

Now we lie awake

 but our dreams seem real

The sun

the moon

the Stars

All have our seal

*

Sky is endless black

And the stars are forever bright

My eyes fill with lights like fire

Burning in the night

Dancing demons

or Singing angels

These timid strangers bring our greatest changes

*

My mind journeys deep

Visions glow in the light

My body

I can’t keep

as I’m pulled into the night

Rivers run high

Flames burn far below

I fight to raise our souls

 with everything I know

Listen to the Wind

Before I begin

I stop and listen to the wind

Sweeping through the trees

Cleansing all the leaves

To my core reaching deeper

Into my heart

And in my head

Orange and yellow

And bright red

All now swirling

Winter clean

Into the Earth

Till spring grows green

*

History awakes

A new day breaks

*

It starts to sink in

A cold winter wind

Ripping through trees

Barren of leaves

Now souls reach deeper

Into kind hearts

and into our heads

Wishes we follow

Thoughts left for dead

Moon overturning

Forgotten dreams

Outside the Earth

No season is seen

*

History seems fake

As new stars awake

*

No precedent found

For the sky or the ground

Break through days

Sharing fair ways

No causing pain

For personal gain

No attacks on our peace

Just because movements cease

Support the vulnerable with care

Stay more aware

Difference on the surface

Should not be feared but reassure us

We all deserve to live well

Our shared life has begun

And with the river run

Swept into the sea

Surging mystery

Vision getting clearer

Into my heart

And in my head

Once thought shallow

Now deep instead

Ages swirling

Cross-currents mean

Within the Earth

Kind channels clean

*

History is at stake

As a new day breaks

Love from Above

We are all fast

We won’t come to a stop

We hold on to some of the past

While the future’s on top

My love please help me keep moving

Right now

Right now keep me moving somehow

Fast

*

We are so alive

Hold on to what we’ve got

For every goal we strive

Love means quite a lot

Come on Love

Help us out

*

Fast as fire

Fast as a river

Fast as our skin moves

if we shake and shiver

At the peak of the moment

Fast as release

Fast as times go by

when we can find peace

*

There’s nothing faster than action

Driven by love

There’s nothing more for sure than

Love from above

And still the world

Can’t get enough

*

Fast as lightening

Fast as hard rain

Fast as thoughts move

If we’re going insane

At the peak of chaos

Fast like a beast

Fast as times we hide

And hope to find peace

Theres nothing faster than dreams

Driven by love

There’s nothing more for sure than

Love from above

And still the world

Can’t get enough

*

We are all fast

We won’t come to a stop

We hold on to some of the past

While the future’s on top

My love please help me keep moving

Right now

Right now keep me moving

somehow

*

We are so alive

Hold on to what we’ve got

For every goal we strive

Love means more than a lot

Come on Love

Come out on top

Worth Mention

Where are all

the people that care?

I know some do

But in the big scheme of things

Many seem unaware

Or unable and preoccupied

I try to reach out to help

The world seems to hide

It’s like we need wicked pride to just get attention

As if when we’re not elected or promoted

We’re not even worth mention

*

Where are all the people that care?

I know some do

But in the big picture

Many seem so unfair

Or unfocused and mystified

I try to reach out to help

But the world denies

It’s like we need a famous light to just get attention

As if public intelligence without spectacle

Is not even worth mention

*

So I keep shouting

And make a big production

If you can’t hear us now

Maybe soon you will

What I can’t understand

Is all the deep doubting

To cause health reduction

To other’s words you’ll never bow

Maybe soon you will

Realize you can understand

Ways to learn about being

Safe and well

with our kind introduction

*

It’s about peace of mind

We can’t find it without you

It comes from inside

And it is all about you

The outside world depends on your action

Now that they’ve found you

The energy grounds you

Together now

or alone

A healthy mood with Peace in mind

Determines everything that’s known

*

Where are all

the people that care?

I know you do

But when it comes down to it

Many will not dare

So unstable and stupefied

Stop and stare

Try to reach out to help

But the world has lied

It’s like we need to be crucified to just get attention

As if when we’re not subjected and devoted

We are not even worth mention

*

So I keep praying

And make a big production

If you can’t hear us now

Maybe soon you will

What I can’t understand

Is why kind plans are decaying

This is Peace reduction

To equitable words you’ll never bow

Maybe soon you will

Realize you can understand

Ways today to start being

Safe and well

with our kind introduction

*

This is how good things happen

Yes we protect our world

But we reach out to others

Keep our sacrifice healthy

Until we can make another

Introduce the current moment

Stay true to who we are

Don’t jeopardise the future

Instead build it up

The more we keep it together

The better life we share

***

Together We are Here

We live here together

Every last one of us

We don’t know anyone

Outside of the atmosphere

*

We think we are so clever

On top

but that’s none of us

We should not leave out anyone

In our time here

That seems clear?!

*

Some have more wellness

And when stable should

help all others

Our lives are diverse

But together we are here

**

Build us up stronger

The whole’s greater than

the sum of the parts

Don’t wait any longer

For our true value

To heal more breaking hearts

Here’s where it starts

*

We live here together

Every last one of us

We don’t know anyone

Outside of our Earth here

We may compete against or resent each other

But together we love more

And build all that life’s worth

**

I’m going to post like this

And write poetry

I could care less about the alternative

I try to be heard

Whether or not I am

My thoughts are put together

To create a state of mind

And give my goals a word

To make a big difference is a whole other story

Connected philosophy is something I hope to find

☮️

**

We think of this endeavour

Every last one of us

And we don’t know anyone

Outside of the atmosphere

*

We try to climb the ladder

Up top

There’s only one of us

We shouldn’t leave out anyone 

We should share time fairly here

That seems clear?!

*

Some have more wellness

And when able should

Help all others

Our lives are diverse

But together we are here

The Fate of Progress (A Goal)

You’ ve got what you want, Fate

We fought for it together

Now I languish waiting here

Through wet, cold and wicked weather

I once championed the sky

And battled through the Earth

I fight as hard and fair as I can

And you know what it’s worth

*

I love your mind and your body

And I’d love to know your soul

But the harder I fight for all of us

The higher up you raise the goal

*

The world we want

Waits in our plans

Moving with the days

Sometimes falling out of reach

Days flinch

And just miss

Steady patience pays

Accidentally falling

Misunderstanding

And we may go our own ways 

but then we finally connect for real

We burn through the misty haze

Resilience in sun rays

Clouds are just a phase

*

You’ve got what you want, Fate

We caught up to it together

Now I’m in anguish waiting here

Behind walls of hot and wicked weather

I once championed the sky

And battled through the Earth

I fight as hard and fair as I can

And you know what it’s worth

*

I love your mind and your body

And I’d love to know your soul

But the harder I fight for all of us

The farther back you set the goal

*

The world we want

Waits in our plans

Choosing all new days

In time learning what we teach

Days sink in 

We take risks

Steady patience pays

Words of wisdom calling

Open rejection

And we may go our own ways 

but then we finally agree what’s real

A basic understanding stays

Truth can awake and amaze

Conflict is just a phase

*

You’ve got what you want, Fate

We bought into it together

Now I’ve been challenged

Waiting here

In ever-changing wicked weather

I once championed the Sky

And battled through the Earth

I fight as hard and fair as I can

And you know what it’s worth

*

I love your mind and your body

And I’d love to know your soul

And the harder I fight for all of us

The more clearly I can see my goal
