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

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 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

*

Discover the sky

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

*

Some folks avoid loving feelings

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

**

Lover of life

We need you so much

Lover of life

With your caring touch

Lover of life

We feel your colours

Lover of life

The view is all yours

*

Discover the sky

With sea and Earth below

Discover the sky

With sun and moon higher

There’s nowhere you go

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?

*

Lover of life

We need you so much

No other as wise

You have a caring touch

*

Some folks bury their loving feelings

And think at times

that they are gone

*

But we can save

Ourselves and each other

By caring more

Love builds life strong

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
