Save The Underdog


Right now

We’re learning how

To save this place

And take a bow

Nothing we do

Should be taken for granted

Our words are true

Written or chanted

Dip down low

Admit the advantage

Life’s for show

Doesn’t mean we planned it

Give us some credit

For setting things right

Help us stay steady

Bring our dreams to the light

*

Right now

We should learn how

To save this place

Fallow fields plow

Good things we do

Should not be taken for granted

Kind words that are true

Care for when planted

Cradle till high

Promote the advantage

Life we know

Should get more help standing

Give us some credit

For fighting the fight

Help us get ready

Till our life’s in the light

*

Ease our mind

With adequate resources

Don’t leave us behind

Use all your forces

If you stockpile, hoard and sit on surplus

You’re not being fair

No matter what your discourse is

Change the system

Change the taxes

Top dogs ignore us

That’s what the fact is

Change our mind

So people don’t suffer

Help us get better

For the bottom line

*

Right Now

We should all learn how

To save this place

For love avow

All that we do

Wouldn’t be taken for granted

These words are true

Offered not demanded

As far as we go

Care has the advantage

No one we know

Should go empty-handed

Give us some credit

For efforts out of sight

Help us keep getting

Dreams for life to the light

If time goes slow

Still let Love show

Follow your good sense

Follow just true friends

Follow a kind way

Lead the day

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

True Love Empowers

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

Our energy towers

*

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

With special powers

Patience

Perseverance

Rock, metal and Flowers

Finish the day

Our energy towers

*

No doubt about it

We want each other

Don’t need a random

Don’t need another

*

However we make it

Life remains ours

Here’s a day

Let’s take it

True love empowers

Think Home

Disgusted by the morals of the masses

Who would think to hoard and deprive?

Not me

I’m sure

but all the while…

We are all

Dedicated bees to the hive

*


Behold the queen

Our mother

The Earth

Driving us out on our journey

Some triumph

With great pots of gold

Some may be forever yearning

*

Entrusted to the scoundrels of the classes

Who would think to hoard and deprive?

Not me

I’m sure

But all the while…

We are all

Politicians aiming to thrive

*

Just like a king

Our father

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

Fast as fire

Fast as a river

Fast as our skin moves

At the peak of the moment

Fast as release

Fast as times go by

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

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

Different

Sometimes if we’re different

We make unusual comments

like how we make it through

to get past our hard days

With more than a few

We may challenge social norms

If in life we feel injured

We try to choose smart ways

But in a mood that’s incurred

Karma’s conflicting storms

Can consume all our days

*

Sometimes if we’re different

We have unusual visions

that help us make it through

to get past our bad days

Although it’s nothing new

We may hope for more warmth

But in life run through the wringer

We strive to choose ways to save

With tones calm and cool like a singer

Karma’s kindness forms

Stays true for all our days

*

You tear apart differences

as if searching for a truth

The only difference

is what you’ve learned

Keep it together to improve

One helping clue:

We ARE together

Caught up in the moment

Mood builds from philosophy

And new perspectives we haven’t known yet

Now coming into vision

Just because we’re different

*

Sometimes when we’re different

We make unusual choices

to try to make it through

We get past some tough days

But if we miss a cue

We can fall thru open arms

And life slips through our fingers

It seems we choose rough ways

But in truth illusion lingers

While Karma’s coping charms

Get us through all our days

Love All, Serve All

Each day I awake

and before my eyes open

I think of You

You are the LOVE of my life

EVERYONE

EVERYTHING

EVERYWHERE the sun reaches

*


REAL LOVE

That starts like a spark

Breathes life in my heart

And grows in the dark

As it teaches

No preaching

Just feeling

*


REAL LOVE of

EVERYONE

EVERYTHING

EVERYWHERE

*


Real Love is just to care

Find ways to share

Always be fair

*


In a world that is often “Go go go”

Real Love can move

Fast or slow

It grows with our actions

Never just for show

*


Real love is about being aware

Sooner or later

We all win when we care

For Everyone

Everything

Everywhere

*


Deep within the unchecked silence

There are sirens ringing

People suffer neglect or violence

Build Real Love for

Defiance clinging

*


Rules and Ideas of compliance

Like hard-edged diamonds stinging

Fools and Egos deaf and blind as hell

While the alliance of Real Love singing:

Love all

Serve all

*

Each day fades away

And as my eyes close

I think of You

You are the Love of my life

MY ONE and ONLY

EVERYTHING

EVERYWHERE the night falls

*


REAL LOVE

Intensely good path

Breathes Peace in our heart

Lights up the dark

As it reaches out

To all needing

Good feeling

*


And to reach within

Past any fall:

Love All

Serve All

Seems to me…

Words deemed flavorless

Out of a raven’s fist

Offer potential

To rise to new heights

One awkward statement

A downward spiral

No denial

Then one quick turn

Now looking up again

Sky in our sights

*

Feeling normal

Acting grand

No name or fame

Wisened flier at times admired

Seems to me

it’s all been planned

*

Of time oblivious

Caught in a lover’s kiss

Lifelong potential

To rise to new heights

One awkward statement

Carry for miles

Eased by smiles

More we learn

More we look up again

Our life invites

*

Feel stable

Take a stand

Mind the flame

Body and brain

Our desired fire is

Designed Inspired

Seems to me

it’s all been planned

Puzzle piece falls into place

Finds a perfect fit

An unsettling breeze blows over this space

Awkward instant tears us to bits

Dedication builds us back up again

At times in starts and fits

Be kind

There is no risk

*

Focus on the moment and the moment finds us

Nature we share

Help us take care of things

*

Be kind

There is no risk

As we understand

Share calm words

Be overheard with a consistent caring plan

Focus on the moment and the moment finds us

Nature we share

Helps us take care of things

Start opening our mind

To working harder at being kind

Save grace when we can

Seems to me its all been planned

*

You seem more than curious

about some kind of eternal bliss

Dream of potential

To rise to new heights

One well-placed statement

End of the trial

Finish with style

Time to burn

Till things look up again

We all have our rites

I’m feeling able

To lend a hand

Times seem dire till we rise higher

Seems to me

it’s all been planned

*Bright Depth*

Depth to the depth

When shallow I’m hollow

A breath in and out

Time moves and I follow

Then in the West

We call out Apollo

His best must be left

In grooves that we follow

Daybreak has all of my plans

At night dreams start all over again

Lighting the way everyday

A test to the test

In fire I wallow

A splash of wisdom

A dash of defiance

I aim to be close to

Established compliance

I can’t complain

but we do need change

To challenge the system

And set a new stage

*

So today, I buck history

of mine and the world’s

Try to redesign meaning

Of words we’ve unfurled

Bright ideas, dark days

My optimism is pure

Work and believing

*

Confess to the rest

When shallow we’re hollow

A breath in and out

Success proves how to follow

Guessed to be best

The world shouts a loud call out

The rest must be blessed

In grooves that we follow

*

Daybreak has all of my plans

At night dreams start all over again

At the height of day

I work and pray

Success at the test

In fire I wallow

*

Smoke is rising

Flames are twisting

I waver like a leaf in the heated breeze

No surprise

I’m resisting

To get past pain and find progress beneath

*

Our future is uncertain

and alternates positions

Staying strong in only one:

The stem of cool and calm visions

Passion Branching Out

Day melts like anger


channeled into steam


Breathing in the logical conclusion


of today’s fiery turmoil


The slope of a mountain we climb


Shines red with rivers of


Passion branching out


tomorrow hardening to form our resolution and


Calm


becoming grey as concrete


Plumes to ease our mind’s tension

*

Fuel for flame falls

Through night and day

Hues of red and orange idle

Locked for now or forever

in calm grey and green

Of waking dreams

Crawling over years

like clouds roll into vision

Tears preserve future life

Growing resolution to move forward in new days

Breathing heights of tomorrow

Fanning flora not fire

*

Excruciating loss

Again and Again

Maybe not for each of us

But for one time in a life

We should make a difference

when we can spare resources

If we can’t accept the rain

Sorrow thundering down

We may surrender to beauty

In another waking day

Strain comfort from humanity

Black out the darkest pain

One Word

One word

can change the moment

Change the day

Change our Life

*

Just one word

or a sentence or two

Changes everything

The world and our mood

*

Watch what you say

Careful what you do

Say what you mean

And what’s right for you

In the big scheme of things

It’s best to be true

Share what makes sense

From your point of view

*

One word

can drop very fast

Change our mind

And change our Life

*

Just one word

With some follow through

Changes everything

Understanding and Attitude

*

Watch what you say

Careful what you do

Say what you think

And words helpful for you

In the big picture

Each second is new

Share thoughts for progress

We can’t misconstrue

*

Every word means something different

from where we stand

And how we think

Each word should be well thought-out

but sometimes we act on impulse

And sometimes we don’t have the facts

or the most logical link

We should aim to choose our words carefully

the best we can

just in case they sink in

*

Any word

can change our train of thought

Change a little

Or change a lot

Just one word

Or a message

False or true

Can change everything

If it makes it through

Watch what you say

Goes for me too

I try to help out

Sometimes we have no clue

This is life

Reality right on cue

Share our energy

It’s all we can do

A Walk in the Park

I can’t always say

Things I want to say

*

To keep our lives together

We have to be smart

I can still love

The way I want to love

Even if I can’t say it loud

From the bottom of my heart

One day at a time

Chip away piece by piece

Tear down barriers

Try to make it right

Even pure words don’t always do justice

That doesn’t mean we can’t still win the fight

*

Look at who we are

Conscious beings

Different folks and creatures

All born from a spark

No matter where we came from

Or how life is going

We can find brighter hopes and features

To get past nights that are dark

Quiet or loud we win

When care and love are on the mark

*

I’m right on target

Arrow splitting arrow

Maybe you can see it

But you just can’t speak

The bullseye we’re looking at

Is the aim of our hearts

Incomparable

Maybe you can feel it

When this thought is complete

*

Say a word for peace

Say what you want to me

Don’t leave anyone out

Aim higher to help us all live better

*

We can’t always say

Things we want to say

*

To keep life together

We have to work hard

We can still love

The way we want to love

It can be best to say it loud

From the bottom of our heart

One day at a time

Chip away piece by piece

Tear down barriers

Try to make it right

Even pure words don’t always do justice

Doesn’t mean we can’t still win the fight

*

Look at who we are

Conscious beings

Special folk and creatures

All born from a spark

No matter where we came from

Or how life’s going

We can climb over higher slopes and detours

To get past days that seem dark

Quiet or loud we win

Caring

Way more

A walk in the park

Time to Meditate for Peace

Can we find some time to meditate

Or at least feel Peace in the moment?

Please give us signs of well-being and Wisdom

Look at a symbol of nature

that is calm

A flower or a fence

No vision out of place

If you can embrace opposition and then face

The world with a smile

that overrides the system

*

Can we find time to meditate

Work to create peace for more moments?

Recognize signs of sacrifice and progress

Accept symbols of nature

that are known best

A flower or a friend

Everyone in this place

If you can keep pace with contradiction and then base

Our world on the light

We have inside that grows blessed

*

To find peace inside

and clear our mind of gross pride

Are the first steps that will guide

Peace in our life and worldwide

But we have to believe it

Cleanse our minds and retrieve it

From the most chaotic days

Dark and dirtiest ways

Find the light that stays with us

Through all time that won’t hide

When we conceive it

Peace

*

Can we find time to meditate

Be allowed peace for more moments?

Follow the signs and find more sense and meaning

Worship symbols of nature

Now convening

A flower and face

Won’t feel out of place

If you can save grace with protection and then chase

A world out of sight

We make alright with a mission of peace

Intervening

Achieve Every Breath

The view that I maintain is born with me and the world

As a no-name knock-off

I know just about nothing

But when we put our heads together

Oysters holding wise pearls

Beauty in our vision

And grit in our Soul

*

Share the sands of time

Exploring Land so fine

Sea and Sky forever

Achieve every breath

*

It’s easy to scrutinize

But it’s not fair to capsize me

They should really know by now

I aim to do my best

Anxious moments

Melt into acceptance when we get well

I’d like to prove to you that I can pass every test

*

Hold onto empathy

As we look past to the bottom line

Don’t let a few nerves

Unravel all the rest

*

Believe Believe

Achieve every breath

Achieve nothing less

Than our absolute best

*

From conception

Our dreams are all that we imagine

The view of society

Determines how they grow

I will hold my confidence

in the heart of my dense brain

And keep myself connected

To life’s ebb and flow

*

The view of myself is born with me and the Earth

As Sunshine Superstars

We all see something certain

And when we put our heads together

Trees shimmering with mirth

Beauty in our vision

And for everything Life’s worth

*

Share the branches of time

Exploring Land so fine

Sea and Sky forever

Achieve every breath

*

It’s easy to criticize

But not fair to penalize me

They should really know by now

I aim to do my best

Toxic moments

Melt into acceptance when we get well

I’d like to prove to you

Accidents made the mess

*

Hold onto empathy

and Look past to the bottom line

Don’t let a few safe swerves

Cause me to fail the test

Believe Believe

Achieve every breath

Achieve nothing less

Than our absolute best

Are all that we imagine

The view that we share

Determines how they grow

Let us hold confidence

Kind & Compassionate Fusion

Love we have

Hides beneath the seas

And above the skies

Within hidden hearts

And behind dedicated eyes

*

Dedicated to a way of life

And important causes

Dedicated to what makes us different

As we try to avoid losses

*

Could we share this love

Without conflict and confusion?

See eye to eye without so much

competition-driven illusion?

*

I mean well

You mean well

So why does it all go to Hell?

*

Why do people go hungry

living on the street?

Why do we wage war

when we’re the one we defeat?

Why don’t we say hello to everyone we meet?

*

How can we change things up so there’s less need to compete?

For basic needs and Safety

Money should be beat!

*

Love we have

Resides with friends and family

And can at times surprise

Common smarts

Catching dedicated eyes

*

Dedicated to being nice

Press play with few pauses

Dedicated to compassion and light

To join us in important causes

*

Could we share this love

With only care and communion

See eye to eye with clearly the most

Kind and fair solutions?

*

I mean well

You mean well

We each have a story to tell

*

That’s why some are lonely

And thrown to the street

That’s why we wage war

Looking for differences to defeat

Since we’re unable to learn about people we meet

*

How can we change things so there’s less need to compete?

For basic needs and safety:

Barriers should be beat

*

I mean well

You mean well

Still our lives can go to Hell

*

No way to get fired up without taking heat

When kindness is handled badly it brings defeat

Living is work yet we’re treated incomplete

*

When can we put these hours on the big time sheet?

For basic needs and safety

No one should have to beg, steal or cheat

*

Love we have

Hides beneath a deep freeze

And above fiery cries

Within false starts

And behind dedicated eyes

*

Dedicated to a better life

And best of causes

Dedicated to what makes us unique

As we become our own bosses

*

Can we share this love

Without competitive collusion?

See eye to eye with much more

Kind and compassionate fusion?

Kind Scary Spirits

In some ways an uneasy brain to begin with

As I look through an autumn window

I see faces in trees plainly grinning

Yet stuck into an unforgiven limbo

I look up to dark clouds boiling

We reflect on the sheer touch of madness

That we are one with the storm rolling

And manage to clear so much of the badness

*

Hair rises high on Lucy’s neck

Pumpkin hides under the table

Halloween is creeping up on us

Seems our psychic ability is totally stable

Can’t keep clean

Rats deep in blood and guts

Black cat hunts nightly as willing and able

Fat feline, nasty human, vermin and muddy mutts

All of us given a label

*

How does my isolated vision compare

To true death and evil that impacts real people?

First please note: I’m in some way aware

Of the last breath and steep hills causing upheavals

We all live life

Some suffer way more

Imagery poking at strife is tougher at our core

And all efforts are meant for true love retrieval

*

Different people

Labels

Unfit or redeemed

Do all I can to include

Kindness and keep it clean

Fuss on one thing

Intense

About productivity

Can’t bear a gruesome grudge of flawed activity

If I’m feeling strapped

Our world can seem rather mean

I get through days better with a hard-working kind of sheen

*

Endeavour seems like a part of life

We all push for our goals

But without kindred spirits

It can be like

Walking across hot coals

Alone can feel like it lasts forever

Together feels like a stitch in time

My soul reaches out to you to harmonize

Together we are all

Truly sacred and divine

*

We must reach out to the children

Who hold our future dimensions and draw out all our moods

There’s no other world to live in

So let’s boldly ensure attention to all these dames and dudes

Far beneath the surface

We all have the same life-goal

To exist happily here on Earth

No matter how young or old

*

Where is the web that catches all of us?

I know it is there

There is care

That watches over us

If we live with support like a spider

We could feel better and brighter

We should not deny

Connections inside

Or have to decide

When fear is the only divider

and Love is the steadfast rider

*

Year round

Seconds we play

Fly by fiery and fast

I work hard as I can and as I say

“Nice guys finish last”

Me, I do heavy lifting

of spirit and morals each day

Reach from low to high above ground

Rules and reason may shift, drifting away

But injustice can’t hold good souls down

So how do we get around?

*

We have patience through the seasons

Endure changes that are timeless

Bow to the phantom of causality

Appreciate random acts of kindness

We start with a similar seed

And the Earth all around

Shaping us as we grow

To our brains and bodies bound

Determined worthy faces

Rise up from the ground

*

How do we get around injustice?

By aiming for peace and love

For those that don’t know what the fuss is

It’s about working together to get above

Above hate and fear and anger and stigma

Above cruel ends in fate and greed and danger

The smile on my face should be no enigma

I send joy to every friend, family and stranger

*

I have just eaten some brains

And would like to eat some more

Maybe I’m licking my fingers again

Because there’s some heart inside this kind skull’s core

I wander around aimlessly

Looking for a piece of mind

If you really want to give one to me

I’d be glad as it’s all I can find

*

Look deep into my eyes

And I will mesmerize you

I won’t bring bad luck

The days won’t suck

No one in the world will despise you

There are no hitches

Not even the witches

They know I’ll stay true to who I am

As we fly the skies

I wear no disguise

This kind magic we have is no sham

*

On a holiday from sanity?

A helpful view of MacroMichael

Even though I proclaim it’s clean

I use profanity like “Psycho”

The word is over-used on people

that are really just diverse

Special vision doesn’t mean we’re in the movie scene

Stereotypes we choose for people

Often are much worse

*

Welcome to our house

I’d suggest you come inside

But there’s several zombies here

And werewolf dogs that bite

The gnome will not be vicious

If you suggest you’ll do the dishes

If you’re looking for a guide

Invoke oracle warlocks and witches

Follow the prophetic light

That answers secret wishes

*

Once we set our goals

And nurture them till full-grown

We can share light in what we dream

Down low or more well-known

The spirit of the times rises

from the ground where it was buried

Death of past life supplies us

Energy found and then carried

In forms calm to some

And to others very scary

*

Can’t compare our face

Or light from within

Must accommodate

So work together can begin

Help save society

Stand out for good causes

Scare the Hell out of the devil for sure

And all other bullying bosses

At least get them to admit their wrong

With a shallow scream

Remind them to fear our spirit

Every Halloween

Cruel Bluff

I’m a day late and a dollar short

So many of us could use more support

Some just to survive

Or begin to make

Our world get so much better

Mental Health doesn’t just come off a shelf

Yet to find good help

We often need wealth

I see that to live good lives

Books and medicine can be

Exclusively clever

*

Ironic we call it, “A wealth of knowledge”

Because we study

And did college

And live with such crime

All of the time

Ignorance causing

Poverty

Illness is judged

by those with a grudge

And not many budge

or take a fair nudge

To save hard case lives

And lend resources to stop

Costly misery

*

No fault but your own yet

You blame us for mistakes

You say that you’ve grown

But your inclusion is fake

How can we get through

All the anger and hate?

When you’re mad at the poor

Their contribution you negate

To be human and have feelings

Has to be more than enough

But easing pain to you is not priority “stuff”

*

You’re a day late and a dollar short

So many of us could use more support

Some just to survive

Or begin to make

Our world get so much better

Mental Health doesn’t

Have a fixed price

Yet to find good advice

We can’t roll the dice

I see that to live good lives

Money and planning can be

A great measure

*

Self-serving, why suggest

“Money can’t buy happiness?”

As we work all days

Without rest

Face dirt and grime

All of the time

Striving to get past

Poverty

Food has a cost

Clothes and shelter are lost

If dollars not tossed

To you by your boss

To help get through life

And provide resources to bring

Ringing success

*

Where’s the reason?

You blame us for mistakes

And imply that it’s treason

But your evidence is fake

How can we prove

Our contributions are great

When you are mad at workers

Who don’t even get a living rate?

To be human and have our own needs

Has to be more than enough

But your “fair” sharing of resources is a

Cruel bluff

Focus Our Dreams

With well-planned tapping

of the brain’s

Unquestionable

Raw potential

There’s new power and energy

Beginning to form plenty

*

We understand mapping

of what’s sane as

Unguessable

Consequential

Our few hours are merging

Spinning into so many

Time spent to comprehend the mind

Better spent to focus our dreams

*

Nothing’s quite as it seems

The concrete truths that we stand on

And the beliefs that shelter us

Can save us from storms

but wash away with the past

*

If we hold onto our dreams

Completely choose what we plan on

The relief that’s felt by us

Can create the new norm

And crush bad days with a blast

Lifetimes grappling

With the brain’s

True dilemma

So existential

Infinite power an energy

Give us strength to go on

*

We fly high tackling

One sand grain

Showing the gem

Of all that is mental

Richest towers splurging

Grind peace till it’s gone

Time spent to figure out the mind

Better spent to focus our dreams

*

Through all time our light gleams

The studied truths that we land on

The beliefs that are dealt to us

Can lead to good days

Yet disappear with the past

*

If we follow our dreams

Muddy blues bring a grand dawn

The griefs that are felt by us

Can meet warmth in the haze

And with calm care clear up fast

We Are Who We Are

Can’t fix tricks

From many years ago

Don’t know what they’re thinking

I don’t go that low

We are who we are

Since you and I were kids

Couldn’t be any kinder

No matter what we did

I can’t explain the pain

Or what caused it

Yet we felt it

Certainly didn’t mean it

Here’s some ice

Now let’s melt it

*

Can’t always appeal

To everyone we know

Stories I find wholesome

You can find below

We are who we are

Taken by highest bids

But don’t put on the blinders

Open our soul’s eyelids

If we describe the vibe

And the causes

that have held us

Certainly we’ll see it

Share advice

Let sure words tell us

*

Believe Love

It makes sense

Skip lies and false pretense

Rumor

Corrupt messenger clouds vision

Dirty waters stir

Makes truth hard to see

And we judge carelessly

Stereotype we assume

Misleading label

Seals the doom of

Any other person

And confusion worsens

Don’t decide fate

Or put an unfair curse on


Wake up to the vision

Of fighting for the same cause

Yesterday won’t change

And the present we Live

Won’t pause

Face the future knowing

we are all here together

It’s not like only a few should succeed

In numbers we are clever

The vain must concede and

Leave their greed

And join our great endeavour

*

Can’t find the kind

At times it doesn’t show

I’m looking for true love

Everywhere I go

We are who we are

Passion: a thing we hid

Pressure packed side-winder

Surprise corner screech and skid

I can’t articulate fate

and All causes

Yet it rules us

Certainly can’t cheat it

Calm care will suffice

And grow and cool us

The Least We Can Do (Find Peace of Mind)

I’m leaning on the future

Like a pool cue on the table

To find peace of mind

We can’t be on the ropes

It helps to have a calm world

Combinations when we’re able

To find peace of mind

We must work on how to cope

Chalk up every effort

And cover all the angles

At least what we can

For the time we can devote

*

I’m sticking with the past

Like an over-used label

To find peace of mind

We can’t gripe and mope

It helps to find a calm world

And remain completely stable

To find peace of mind

We must develop hope

Make a name for ourselves

Don’t lose much time idle

At least do what we can

With contributions to promote

*

No one has the time of day

To be missing any

But this is what they ask of you

To spend lifetimes fot a penny

Seconds of peace are few and far between

But should be way past many

These hours we need

To live well and dream

Best to share so we all get plenty

And not be missing any

It’s the least that we can do

*

I’m focused on the present

Like an unfolding fable

To find peace of mind

We can’t think we’re woke

It helps to make a calm world

Keep up to accounts payable

To find peace of mind

We must broaden our scope

Keep an eye on fantasy

Yet practical life cradle

At least do what we can

To help float our only boat

Compassionate Teams

Rushing through the day

Trying to survive

Years carve the way

Integrity alive

Life of people coursing

Through rapids and channels harsh

Economy forcing

Physical damage and mental scars

If we fairly pool resources

Instead of hoarding excess

We’d see each tree in the forest

And build collective success

*

Glimmer of hope reflects

River runs through the country

Dim clouds the world elects

Injustice spoken bluntly

Intelligence must outshine dull visions

Science should triumph in waves

Logic should make all decisions

Not toxicity that rants and raves

Bright reason we must work to save

*

Clouds are not always dark

In still-water beautifully reversed

Truth in our skies at times stark

More welcome if evenly dispersed

Families of trees reach up with joy

Yet may hide views of those under-paid

Though blocking sun can annoy

With sure shelter we have it made in the shade

*

In barren trees souls reach the sky

Twisted shadows cast

Nothing hides from scanning eyes

Vulnerability is found out fast

Protected by Justice intertwined

With chance and fate and reach of vision

If we can protect and extend our mind

We can succeed in any mission

Patience is a decision

*

From high above

We have love

And we can ask for more

If we are tough

And find enough

We can live safe at the forest floor

Shelter of trees

And sight of the day

We can exist as we need

Swelter or freeze and nighttime to pay

Lightening won’t miss in words we heed

Heightened bliss in calm signs we read

*

We achieve more

if we get through the mire

Use what we are born with

And what we acquire

One thing I’m sure of

Life is a road school

We learn on our tour of

Sights like a toadstool

Psychedelic dreams

Sustenance or a quick end

We make it through days

Attack fast or defend

And make life our best friend

*

We meet for moments

Meek make fast friends

Chatter of fallen years

Celebrate new chances with tail-shaking dances

With a squirrelly chirp choose to say cheers

We chew and chomp

On the fat of a nut with a gnat

Then romp up a tree for a tweet

As a matter of fact I’m all jacked

That you’re sharing your life with me

*

From the far side

Making tracks

We have to get back

To our world that makes much more sense

Fast as we go

We may still be too slow

Danger on side streets way too intense

As I make my way

This very day

See creatures facing new trouble

Look to humanity to find sanity

And don’t let anything burst our bubble

*

Fierce beasts turn out not too ferocious

To yawn now might seem precocious

Life’s not boring

So why are you snoring?

I guess we all need some more rest?

Time to ourselves

To take books off shelves

And focus on the cause at hand

No reason to cry

If we all give a try

And for wellness we all take a strong stand

*

At the same time

It pays to be careful

Face to face with a bear could be terrible

Protect all our space

Don’t get caught up in the chase

Best to be aware and respectful

The bottom line

We should all be fine

But truth is that we’re not

If I jump up and down

And wear a massive frown

It might be because I feel caught

*

Uprooted trees

Cannot displease

If naturally they’ve fallen down

Let’s just face it

We did not displace it

And nature’s completely all around

But we have a choice

And the human voice

Don’t blame the world for falling

We should rise up high

And with our best try

Fill our duty for nature that’s calling

*

The sun sets again

Some are in pain

And some could make more of an effort

I do what I can

And work for a plan

Drives me daily to consider the F-word

Come on people

What are you thinking?

Let it slide and others suffer?

Today is the day

To make our work pay

Of your lack of compassion

I’ve had enough of

*

Puzzle piece lands at night

Then I have words to say

I hope you’re all feeling alright

Tomorrow’s another day

With signs of progress

Time passes fast it seems

I know for sure this is no test

As chance flashes past I hold dreams

Please wake with me to new light

Hold together in compassionate teams

Is Justice deceased?

**

I write about you and my

Story to tell

My world and life

Dedicated to my

Loving Angels

Kind folks

Family and wife

*

I address truth carefully

Or it just spills out

Wellness should always be

With no demands on the route

Synchronicity and cause

Help choose

Space and time

With certainty I call my muse

Both worthy and kind

**

Words on words

Together they’ve thrilled

Sentence to live for

Inspiration-filled

I call on my muse

The universe to me

Institutions confused

Immersing in them isn’t free

*

Fight for humanity

Wellness and peace

Stifled

Ignored

Answer me please!

Question is:

What do you believe?

With more words

Our love will increase?

Day to day

We make our way

When I’m at home

We love and play

And still WORK hard so health will stay

Thru all TIME

With just my MIND

I have to wonder

Am I alone here?

Or are you always here?

Let’s be wise

With no disguise

We are all here together

The rain comes down

Relentless but nourishing

Nighttime cries

Tears for PEACE

Soon the moon

We are worshiping

The sun comes up

With resilience

Our LOVE is encouraging

Day to day

We make our way

When you’re with me

Life makes sense

Let’s surmise

With no surprise

We are all here together

The rain comes down

Common sense should be flourishing

Lifetimes fly by

Wings for PEACE

And true blue

Seems the perfect scene

The sun comes up

Calmly intense

Our LOVE is the most certain thing

Day to day

We make our way

When your with me

Life makes sense

**

Common sense says

“Do the right thing”

But what’s right to one

Might not be to the other

*

So instead of the common push

Let’s think of wellness first

Push for Health and good Mood

To support one another

*

Be aware that close together

Mood means more

And In every case

Health should be the focus

That we’re looking for

I’m NOT alone here

We’re always together

And we should stay that way

Days Can Always Get Better

If heights make us dizzy

And lows are rock bottom

With a change in the current

It can always get better

*

Change comes fast if we stay busy

No blues if I fought them

It just goes to show

Days can always get better

*

High above clouds

We don’t feel pain

Spiral to Earth

Dizzying hurricane

*

Deep below ground

We suffer in pain

Reach for the surface

Our efforts in vain

*

Try holding energy from high in the sky

And still stay grounded below

For our life here on Earth

Pain is consuming

Days are confusing

Find the path of your choosing

For all it is worth

Days can always get better

*

Edge one step closer to a better day

Hold onto dreams so that

Nightmares go away

Don’t get lost or forget what matters the most

Stay high above ground

And hold peace very close

*

If heights make us dizzy

And lows are rock bottom

When we change the current

Days can always get better

*

Change comes fast if we stay busy

Pay dues if I’ve got them

One thing that I know

Days can always get better

*

High above clouds

We don’t feel pain

Care for those that do

Bring a soothing rain

*

Deep below ground

If we suffer in pain

Reach for the surface

Till we breathe calmly again

Make life better by joining to care more

I can’t tell you

How much we need your vision

I must say for a better world

We should all see eye to eye

Smoke obscures connection

Hides who we really are

Without time to make it clear

And feel the heat

Soak in the bright flames

Contained by the beat

Smoke clears with time

Rises far above us

No fear in our mind

The sky starts to love us

Calmly we speak

I invoke your name

Plainly ask what we need

Woke dreams are kind

And won’t push and shove us

Our world tries to love us

I Aim to Find Peace

In chaotic times

I aim to find peace

Every day in my mind

To stay at ease

Everywhere I go

Share warmth with people I meet

With every person I know

Find moments

Calm and complete

If you are running out of patience

Walk back down

Pathways new or ancient

Preconceptions release

*

In political times

I aim to find peace

Every day in my mind

To get past the grief

Everywhere I go

Promote leaders who don’t cheat

With each person I know

Find moments

We don’t fight and compete

Hold tight to patience

With a smile not a frown

To overcome the outrageous

Kindness wears a crown

*

Emotion swarming

Buzzing loud are my feelings

Seems quite normal

In everyday dealings

I brace against a flood

Calm moods much more appealing

Torrents of anger and sadness won’t steal me

Instead I breathe deep

Think of the real thing

Life is survival

Peace and love bring us healing

Logic revealing

*

In these crazy times

I aim to find peace

Every day in my mind

A cool flowing breeze

Everywhere I go

I look for comfort to please

With every person I know

Find moments

Stress can’t defeat

It pays to be patient

My heartbeat the only sound

Adrenaline starts racing

Take time to focus

And peace can be found

Open Door Policy

They say I’m way too overboard

But I know I’m ahead of the game

I’m off the wall

But on the ball

And everyone knows my name

*

I’ve got one foot out the door

And one foot on the gas

Scoot far past the corner store

Save our whole world fast

I’m off to work

Such a perk

Hey brains: Just keep pace!

*

Energy together

Better watch it

People

We’ve got

One chance

Forever

*

Need to be who we are

Feeling need deep inside

To share strong connection

Harmony or dissonance

Realize selection overrides

*

Don’t fight others because they’re different

Only if they’re cruel

Peace is powerful logic to me

Love is powerful fuel

*

Staying far away from a distant shore

I’m unaware so it’s just the same

But I’m on call

To fight for all

Got no one to blame

*

Got a foot in the door

And one just past the line

Work so hard in life to score

To stay on side and stay on time

Hey!

I’ll be your friend

Until the end

It’s our future that we face

*

Good days come and go some more

Did our best but hard times came

Hear our call or

Prepare to fall

Then rise higher for fortune and fame

Put one foot through the door

Mouth words that never rend

Don’t let your towel hit the floor today

Time is on the mend

You are a true godsend

Love for you won’t go away or ever ever end

Communication Affects Me, How About You?

Don’t say too much

Or not enough

It’s your decision

In favour of the rush

*

Hope things work out

Clutch the connection

Gears changing fast

Trigger our suspicion

So we pile on affection

Until truth shines through

Of all we have done

And all we can do

Communication affects me

How about you?

**

Don’t think too much

But just enough

It’s your decision

When life gets tough

*

Hope they understand

Bridge the disconnect

Our fuse can’t last

When their power’s corrupt

So we beg for attention

Until truth breaks through

Of what should be done

And all we can do

Anticipation isn’t best for me

How about you?

What can I say?

Feels like I already said too much

I hear your words

And hang on every one of them

*

What am I supposed to think?

This life is so out of touch

In conformity we’re immersed

Held back hard because we stand out

*

The super natural is scorned

Angels treated like deranged criminals

I must say:

Compassion seems ignored

And in society so minimal

Now I have to think

I’m punished for being kind

*

What can I do

If I have only one thing on my mind?

*

To make life better for us

Leave neglect and suffering behind

*

What can I do?

I’m so in love with you

The world refuses to change

It’s up to me and you

I say too much

But not enough

It’s not my decision

In favour of the rush

When things work out

We trust our connection

I aim to share what I’ve learned

With everyone else

So I pile on affection

Until Health shines through

With all I’ve done

And all I can do

No Help for Us All

I awake nameless

With no purpose

Caught in a world

That churns out

Stagnant visions

We are driven to conform

Just fit in

And suffer as required

In order

to confirm to others

We have paid our dues

Even when

We pay more

Because we are different

Again and Again

Without fail

and without credit

*

Calmly stirring the pot vigorously

My goals are set

My mind

The handle

Opposition to my lead triggers me

They get upset

Though I follow their plan out

Just a little bit better but more personalized

They don’t focus on the person

Only stereotypes

I say “Peace and Love”

They say

“Don’t believe the hype”

*

Since I was young

I’ve swallowed my pride

Years follow years

still my feelings I hide

Then people challenge

my intense kindness inside

I’m going to say

“Get F’n with it

Has your conscience died?”

No mincing words:

I’ve been put thru the wringer

Chastised for being me

Stereotypes linger

*

I awake nameless

With no purpose

Caught in a world

That churns out

Stagnant visions

We are driven to conform

Just fit in

And suffer as required

In order

to confirm to others

We have paid our dues

Even when

We pay more

Because we are different

Again and Again

Without fail

and without credit

*

Stormy worry leaves dirty puddles to splash

I’m prepared in my boots and coat of years

How do we get past a day that’s been smashed?

One less patient may wallow in tears

Any colder and I would’ve died

They don’t focus on the person

Or look for strengths that hide

I say “Peace and Love”

They say

“You are not our type”

*

Since we were young

Strong

Not allowed pride

Years on years

Hoarding praise

They criticize

Then they challenge

Our intense kindness inside

I’m going to say

Don’t be so jealous

We’re on the same d@mn side!

No help for us all

That’s the real stinger

We achieve and struggle

You sit back

Point your finger

Take Each Other’s Views into Perspective

We start out

Knowing moves

And learning more

How to live in peace

And fight off war

*

We should step into any space

And learn together

Make each place get so much better

So we can be so

Glad we met there

*

Connect and Understand

Share a vision of the land

And take each other’s views into perspective

*

Following grooves

Deep from the core

Then to keep peace

they barricade the door

*

We should step into any place

Turn the key together

Make each space that much better

And be aware we’re

Deep in debt here

*

Respect and Understand

Share a mission if it’s planned

And take each other’s views into perspective

*

Finding peace is like finding time

Try to shape the moment calmly

Don’t fight the dreams that arrive in our mind

Maintain composure

Stay future ready

Either calm or excited

Be sure and steady

*

Our engine won’t quit

Rumbles loud and reassuring

The story won’t fade

Kind and quiet yet enduring

*

As we start

Find what soothes

We don’t need more

Just to live in peace

No need to keep score

*

We should step into any day

And work together

In many ways get so much better

Try to remember

How we get there

*

Reflect and understand

Share our wishes when they’re grand

And take each other’s views into perspective

*

Finding peace is like finding time

Try to shape the moment calmly

Don’t fight dreams that arrive in our mind

Maintain the kindness

Be sure we’re ready

Either calm or excited

Be True & Steady

Our network won’t quit

Ideas loud and reassuring

Our story won’t fade

Kind yet wild and enduring

I’m in a Far Away Place…

https://anchor.fm/mike-scott11/episodes/Im-in-a-Far-Away-Place-e173qup

I’m in a far away place

A stay away place

I never get to say

what I want to say

*

Left for dead

Because they’re over my head

Can’t even get a word in edgewise

*

The dreams that I chase

Are considered passé

Hey person out there can you listen?

What I’m missing in life is any advice

About how to overcome superstition

*

The mood I’m riding isn’t changing

The world refusing rearranging

The meaning in life comes to me

Here and gone

Time moves on

Through new stages

All ages are racing

Slow or fast through our ultimate moments

*

The truth I’m finding

Is blinding

I must get behind it

**

I’m in a far away place

Stay away place

Never get to finish what I’m saying

*

Left for dead

By things I could’ve said

By higher-up rules and

Worn-out lies

*

People are tense today

Positivity,

A better way

Hello out there can you listen?

What’s missing in life is

Care to suffice

and more Optimism in vision

*

Mood I’m hiding is enraging

World refusing kind engagement

Meaning in life comes to me

Here and now

This is how

Perspective gauges

Consciously we’re facing

Each second here

An ultimate moment

*

The truth I’m finding

Is grinding

But I don’t mind defining

What we need to survive

as kindness

**

I’m in a far away place

Stay away place

Why won’t they hear us out?

*

They act like it’s all been said before

Can’t say this

No time for that

Rules, way too hard core

We all have a story that matters

 *

I’m on a mission to

Buck the system

That won’t listen

Hurts people and

Leaves Justice in tatters

Sunny Dreams

I am one with the sunshine

I won’t complain about the rain

Nighttime can be divine

Nice to go around

with the world again

I’m hot for my love

And on fire when it’s down to the wire

Fortunate the circuit’s made

Lights are brighter up higher

And still top grade

Even down in the shade

I am one with the current flow

Energy staying in pouring rain

Sun shows how we can grow

Nice to go a round with the world again

I’m hot for the love of my life

And on the go is all I know

Fortunate our work is paid

Though under tow still moves slow

Fast hours await

Past days that fade

I’m hot for you

My

True

Love

Like the sun heats up

In our sky above

*

When the dark and grey

Takes over the day

We are on task for the crops

And bask in the drops

*

When the night is stormy

And channeled like streams

We grasp tight to calm heights

And flow with our dreams

*

Then sunshine redeems

*

I am one with the fun times

I won’t complain about the pain

The timeline is just fine

Nice to go around with the world again

*

I’m hot for our love

And on fire as the sun gets up higher

Fortunate games we have played

No fight is dire while you inspire

In battles we wade

Got it made in the shade

*

Hot for you

My

True

Love

Like when the sun comes out

Can’t get enough

*

Any day

With no sun ray

Our mood will still not stop

No doubt to reach the top

And when the night is blinding

The moon’s resilience gleams

Without lights will be alright

Till it’s back to warm sun beams

Then more Sunny Dreams

Unconditional Love

100% Serious about

Unconditional love

Not always easy to tell

If I say something off

Or rub the wrong way

Maybe the situation for me went to Hell

More often the case

Read it on my face

Caring more is not too good to be true

I wear my heart on my sleeve

And Hope you try to believe

Our intentions are good through and through

A road to Hell is paved with good intentions

The way to better times is about the follow through

The path to Peace transcends all dimensions

How we learn to love life is about good things we do

We can work to save grace

Make life feel alright

Help save this whole place

There’s nothing I’d rather do

100% Excited about Unconditional love

Not always easy to tell

If I shoot my mouth off

Don’t take it the wrong way

It’s not like I’m raising Hell

More often the case

If I seem out of place

My focus is not seen by you

I wear my heart on my sleeve

Some refuse to Believe

Intentions are good through and through

If the road to Hell is paved with good intentions

The Way to better times is about the follow through

The path to Peace transcends all dimensions

It’s how we learn to love life

And good things we do

Easy to tell

If my focus is off

I’ll still find my way

If mad like a storm

Think things out

Tomorrow’s World

Under tomorrow’s world

Awaits all of our plans

Pinned to the future

Until we can stand

Sit or crawl

Get the weight off of our shoulders

If it rolls back fast

It will crush us like boulders

Walking now with a plan

We should all understand

Get a grip on life

Let’s all lend a hand

*

Build our goals till they wedge

the world toward wellness

Roll through time together

I should not have to sell this

Our vision of Atlas

Supports all the Earth

Each of our feelings

Carrying the same worth

And when we’re considerate of

All others

It lifts great pressure

that mistakenly smothers

*

Chip away at the truth

It’s right here before us

Try harder to get through

So no one ignores us

Try every time

just a little bit more

Minor details or major

Reach down to the core

If we all dig down

One shovel deeper

This extra-care gets us past

Hills that are steeper

*

We blindly climb

through another day’s hour

Reaching higher to find

Plenty and Power

Ignoring connection

Beneath the surface

Money is worshipped

Compassion seen worthless

This is not just a game

To roll laughing in the dirt

Those soaking in excess

should help ease the hurt

*

Incremental Help

*

Add it up

Every time

We make a kind caring effort

More and more things work out

Exercise of the best sort

Instead of rushing situations

to be the most self-serving

Take time to do our best for all

No case should be unnerving

Each person has feelings

and deserves the same chance

Make sure we give our most

Prepare with sharing plans

*

Not giving away my fortune

I don’t have one anyways

But I’m being nice to who I can

And encouraging better ways

Safety’s always first

and I’ll stand up to a bully

I’ll call people on what is wrong

and try to share

Fair friendship fully

*

I offer the same

Grace to supervisors

Be friendly, honest

and I despise wars

But I will declare

If their actions aren’t fair

“These rules we share!

Yet you act unaware?!”

Convention blocks personalities

If we stigmatize

Discrimination and gross hypocrisy

wreck people’s lives

*

So I take a stand

Again and again

The future I plan:

the same but less pain

All the weight is coming off

as we climb to the top

Spun back round to the bottom

And it will never stop

Until wellness is prime

And our best efforts achieve

Spreading unconditional kindness

And in a fair world we believe

Dig the Mountain

I chip away at a mountain

Move rocks to make my life

Some of the stones I’m smashing

Have an edge as sharp as a knife

*

The world has an understanding

Break through to share the truth

We need empathy

Not trashing

Comforting words

Not piss and abuse

*

So competitive and insecure

Ignorance blocks off the mine

Treasure of the mountain

Hidden by selfish design

*

Misguided masses fuel the volcano

Won’t take kind offerings from our type

Workers, Freaks and Different souls

Thrown into hell

and told to believe the hype

Instead let’s make it right

*

On the mountain

Digging down

Streams and trees

Leaves on the ground

Drilling sound:

All we know

All we compete for

More than show

Feel and Explore more

Be honest

How we think and Live

Share efforts

Try to help and Give

Break oppressive surface

Barriers we find

We dig best together

Staying Caring and Kind

Testing Fate

I’m Testing fate

Just by living

Taking chances

No one’s giving

*

Believe

Believe

If we don’t we die

*

Why can’t we believe

Or even try?

*

Rocking out

Being who we are

No one else

takes us as far

*

We only see

what we Learn to believe

Open our mind’s eye

Find new worlds to see

Logic to conceive

Integrity

Believe

*

I’m testing fate

Just by living

Making angles

Live and written

*

Believe

Believe

If I don’t I’ll die

Why can’t we believe

Or even try?

*

Rocking out

and Being me

As No one else can ever be

Today We Ask for More (What do they have against it?)

Today we ask for more

Someone is up against it

Have mercy and show care

Tears are on the way

*

Fire fills the sky

Smoke makes the day turn grey

Now Joy for us arrives

when we breathe

Fresh clear air

*

Today we awake

And the world may seem fair:

The moment we engage with life

Peacefully aware

*

Today we ask for more

Now we’re up against it

Mercy shines as we care

Your smile lights up the room

*

Rain hits the window

Wind plays our favourite tune

Joy we always know

as we hear

Sounds to share

*

Music in our groove

Makes the world so fair:

The moment harmony starts to glow

Intense and aware

*

Grey sky boiling

And we ask for more

Let’s give all we’ve got

*

For life to be fair and to enjoy more

We have to stir the pot

Richest flavours must come through

Mixed together cold or hot

There’s nothing

Love can’t do

To get us through this spot

*

Build a shelter

Mercy feeds

Combine efforts for basic needs

Love

*

Today we ask for more

What do they have against it?

Mercy shows how to care

A Voice for every day

*

Lightening bridges a gap

Thunder echoes words we say

Joy to be given back

As we speak

Plans for care

*

Maybe turned away

Life’s not always fair

The moment we crash

Get back on track

Calmly more aware

Functioning Paradox

I stare into space

Think of

Everyone

Everything

Everywhere

I pray we come together in a

Functioning paradox

of all inclusive love and care

All goals met

Totally aware

People may think I’m crazy

Stark-raving mad

With a closer look

Most Ideas I share

Aren’t even half bad

Aiming for harmony

*

Before and after

Power surges

Focus flashes

Madness merges

*

It may not make sense

Except through my eyes

Trying to explain

Not always advised

*

No trouble at all

Except for the fall

Intense moments call

I’m still on the ball

Fast in the stream

*

I’m mad when time opens

And forgets the dream

*

Before and after

Resource splurges

Conscious crushes

Truth emerges

*

Quite plain common sense

Except through your eyes

I try to explain

You think it’s pure lies

*

No trouble at all

Except for the fall

Intense moments call

Tales told are not tall

Fast in the stream

I’m mad if coping

is

Sabotaged by my team

*

I stare into space and

Think of

Everyone

Everything

Everywhere

I push to come together in a

Functioning paradox

A co-operative economy

that cares

All goals met

Totally aware

People may think I’m crazy

But dreams are iron-clad

With a closer look

Ideas shared

Are not at all mad

Aiming for harmony

*

Before and after

Darkest dirges

Nervous laughter

Natural urges

*

It may not make sense

Except through our eyes

Trying to explain

Under grey boiling skies

*

No trouble at all

Except for the fall

Intense moments call

We won’t hit the wall

Fast in the stream

*

I’m mad when time opens

And forgets the dream

Like It Or Not

Like it or not

I’m always caught

Being me

Wild and free

Still feels like

I’m over-preparing

Makes my life less daring

Yet people seem less caring

So then I speak my mind

Stretching out to be kind

Climbing out of my brain

Not working for show

Yet becoming a pro

With good news

We should never be sparing

Even with naysayers staring

*

Like it or not

Love can’t be bought

Being free seems to be

What it feels like

When we’re most caring

*

Make life worth sharing

And people much better fairing

By speaking our mind

Reaching out to be kind

Jumping out of our brain

To give to the show

We all become pro

And choose to please

Whomever’s not wearing thin

On the play of the day

We are blaring

*

People don’t always agree

There’s many sides to a story

There’s playful opposition

Or fierce competition

We may be

Forever sorry

If we always want more

Try to understand

Like it or not

We’ve got what we’ve got

Don’t get upset

If you have a lot

We like and we love

There’s want and need

Don’t be too opinionated

Or deluded by greed

*

Like it or not

I’m always caught

Being me

In obscurity

Feeling like

I’m over-declaring

To make my thoughts worth sharing

For people that are more caring

Speaking my mind

Stretching out to be kind

Climbing out of my brain

Not working for show

Yet becoming a pro

With good news

We should never be sparing

Even with naysayers acting unfairly

Yours is the Only Promise We Need

I wrote this about artistic inspiration. I am inspired by so many. The folks I invoke here have played a special part recently and for many memorable parts in my life.

I’m here

and listen for more

Imagining life in peace

The world is at the door

And through a certain slant of light

Yours is the only promise we need

*

As we trade our hours for dimes

Your spirit

Feeling and kind soul

Turn dark days into beautiful times

Weave notes and words into hours mindful

The future is at the door

Sent direct

Today is the messenger

Yours is the only promise we need

John Lennon and Jim Morrison

One day I’ll make a name for myself

Being true to my nature and fighting for causes

No talent will do the same as

Our Incredible losses

But others share powerful music

Our enduring heart crosses

Bif Naked and The Tea Party band

Working miracles for today’s many bosses🇨🇦

The old man down the road

could see the River bending

And in a moment of weakness

gave his soul to the

Commotion

Of all the kaleidoscopes

the best I’ve seen is in

Experimental cost

Focused on wellness

No matter what

And

Free for

Many hours we share together

Loving on

This crystal ship

Forever I remember your name
