Simple Math, Just Out of the Way

Working intensely

on the edge of nothing

Speaking boldly

into a void

The triumphs I celebrate

are recycled in the archives

Taking up space like expired days

*

Why can’t they hear me?

Is my time hiding?

Or did they place it

where it can’t be reached

Just out of the way?

**

Scrambling up a hill

Breaking into a run

Breathing heavy

Into my lungs

The patience I demonstrate

Is ignored

By the roadside

Not recognized

By those going my way

*

Why don’t they give a F**K

While they are comfortably riding?

Should I just face it

There are so many creeps

Too many empty seats

Expecting to be paid?

**

We are scary

Who is caring

While we bust our a$$?

I don’t have a million dollars

But feel higher

Than those that are

Inconsiderate

In the supposedly

upper social class

Folks suffer here

And much further below

To me it seems obvious

There should be a better flow

Against the grain

To fight pain

In simple ways that clearly show

**

Be kind

Whenever you have the chance

Simple math

To help wellness advance

If everyone tries

We will reach new highs

Some folks always dodge out

On what I’m talking about

No effort or attempts

Dragging us down

No doubt

So let’s make plans to enhance

Take the chance

Be kind in life

Help wellness advance

**

Working intently to get something going

Speaking freely

Into the day

The success I celebrate 

Many miles ahead of exile

This saving grace

is a desired phase

*

Why can’t we take the moment?

Is our time hiding?

Or did we place it

where it can’t be reached

Just out of the way?

Serpent Desires

The river of life

Holds gold and ice

Everyday look twice

Fortune in the pan flashes

*

Yesterday on fire

Not what we desired

In our dreams, Look twice

Through the smouldering ashes

Out of the grey

A new flame

Twists and thrashes

*

Like questions

The serpent of the river and fire

The future desire

Will ask us

**

What do you want?

What do you need?

How much will you pay?

How much will you bleed?

How can you survive

and better yet succeed?

What do you want and

What do you need?

**

Delivered to life

Sold a cold price

Every day look twice

For your sale-day door-crashers

*

Tomorrow a buyer

By our fight inspired

In our dreams, Look twice

Cool light

Drops down and splashes

Out of the night

A new light

Storms and crashes

*

Like questions

The serpents

the seller and buyers

The futures inspired

Just cash in

**

The snake in the road

Curves of life that guide us

The twisting, turning episode

that invites and delights us

We lead or follow

down the hard path

And with vision follow through

It seems clear

With no fear

Our tongue tells lies or the truth

It’s for you to decide

A taste you cannot refuse

We are all slithering

Where we are

It is what we do

**

What do you want?

What do you need?

How much will you pay?

How much will you bleed?

How can you survive

& ultimately succeed?

What do you want and

What do you need?

**

The giver of life

Old boldened skies

Everyday look twice

The sky shines or rain lashes

*

Today climbs higher

To find what we desire

For our dreams, Look twice

Through downpours and dry patches

Out of the grey

A bright day

No venomous clashes

*

Just answers

Of the serpent

the rain, sun and sky

Our immediate desire

Quickly flashes

***

All the Life that’s Known

A billion pounds of pressure

Underneath the sea

Or at the centre of the Earth

Or wherever we may be

The future falls from the sky

We are thirsty to be free

The wait of a million years

Is fast only for the stars we see

*

A speck of dust in outer space

A galaxy full-blown

The storm of our global economy

Energies we can hone

Protect all the life that’s known

**

A billion dollar blessing

To people like you and me

Words can’t say the worth

How much better it would be

The future falls from the sky

We are dying to be free

The wait of a million years

Is what it might turn out to be

*

A moment of time

A mile in our shoes

Empathy known

A key to success for humanity

Energy we can hone

A movement towards

All the life that is known

**

The onslaught of opinions brings

A deluge of demands

To justify our existence

We are forced to take a stand

In our common sense

We must invest

The best people lend a hand

Why can’t the other side get it?

Why can’t they understand?

It pays to be a kind soul

It’s smart to have

Well-being of all life

Always in the plans

**

And if you have excess

Holding surplus in your hands

You must be aware that

Sharing should be

More fairly spanned

Across the needy world

Easily

A sustainable

Million seeds

Times a grand

If your way out is to

Hurt, bully and lie

You are becoming less human And

You should really

Change your brand

For your own and for all of our wellness

You really need to take a stand

**

Stars spinning

Constellations distant

Spanning all eternity and time

Find empathy and decency

Or lose the best part of your mind

Karma is so plain to see

Stay on the safe side towards

Healthy harmony you find

Keep your calculations circling

Then sign the bottom line

**

With billions of lives: A lesson

Just above the sea

Working on top of the Earth

~Wherever we may be

The future falls from the sky

Work together to be free

The wait of a million years

Is fine when life’s kind

Right back to you and me

*

A rock flying through outer space

A destiny unknown

The connection we create from empathy

-Energy we can hone

Enrich all the life that’s known

Protect all life

As best we can

It’s the right thing to do alone

What might mean most to you

is that

All life connects to our own

And this is our only home

***

Safe to Say

Every day I think of life

Where I am

And what I am doing

I want to say one thing

About how it’s going

That seems true here

*

But I’m not sure

Is it safe to say that?

*

Who am I talking to?

What will they do?

I could be misconstrued

*

We can make it better

*

Is it safe to say that?

**

It’s safe to say

It’s another day

And it will work out

Either way

One way or another

Usually for the better

If you’re a real go-getter

I think it’s safe to say

We can make it through the day

*

If you are feeling ok

Doing it your way

And good feelings stay

It should be safe to say

There is no other way

**

Every day I think of life

Like who I am

And what I am doing

I want to say one thing

About how it’s going

That seems new here

*

But I’m not sure

Is it safe to say that?

*

Who is listening to me?

When will they start to see?

Why can’t they believe?

*

We can make it better

*

Is it safe to say that?

**

It’s safe to say

It’s another day

And it will work out

Either way

One way or another

Usually for the best

If we can pass their test

I think it’s safe to say

We can have a better day

*

If you are feeling great

Doing it your way

And good intentions stay

It should be safe to say

There is no other way

**

Feel the powers

Optimism and flowers

Don’t be sour

About such kindness

It may not seem tough

Is it not rough enough?

Can we just push through

Until the good sense finds us?

I think that it is safe to say

All the stuff in our way

Fades away every day

When our connection to the world

Is at its finest

Discuss Belief

I get it that

I’m an out-there guy

But I can still

Look you straight in the eye

In fact when you

Seem a little bit shy

It’s my best try

Let’s make it fly

*

Will you engage?

Please talk to me

Simple question

A complex feat

I’m tangled in dimensions

To make it concrete

Experience to explain

Discuss for release

**

Do you get it that

I’m an all-out guy?

And I can always

Look you straight in the eye

In fact when you

Seem a little bit shy

It’s my best try

That we feel alright

*

Will you engage? 

Please walk with me

Simple question

A complex feat

I’m tangled in dimensions

To make it concrete

Experience to explain

Discuss and repeat

**

I’m strange

Engaged

Out on a limb

*

Take a page

On the stage

Talking to Jim

*

Nothing you can say

Will take me away

From this transcendental win

*

There is a new phase

Just for days

Do you want to begin?

*

We are learning together

What the world is about

Full of connection

Not full of doubt

No need to be shy

Today we need to speak out

**

It’s been staged

They’re so brave

The lights are getting dim

*

Take a page

So you can gauge

If it’s more than just a whim

*

Nothing you can say

Will take me away

From the world I have within

*

I’ll show my face

In this place

And wear a giant grin

*

Smile alright

Be bold despite

The pressure to survive and win

*

We are learning together

What the world is about

Push for connection

Avoid fear or doubt

It’s not hard to be shy

But we need to speak out

**

Will they finally get it

From an out-of-this-world guy?

From far away

I can still

Look you

Straight on in the eye

In fact when you

Seem a little bit shy

It’s always my best try

To share healthy insight

*

Is it not quite right?

Look at it in the light

I’m adding up

What’s more than luck

Deep inside

A true mind

Fight

**

Will you engage?

Please rock with me

Simple question

A complex feat

I’m tangled in dimensions

To make it concrete

Experience to explain

Discuss and believe

Be Heard, Listen First

Our profile picture

Is just one angle of us

The visions I post

Might not be

Me at my most

We are getting up close

Can we be  true to  ourselves?

*

All strong and kind

Sharing our mind

Caring about time

And knowing what a picture’s worth

We are down to earth

With a thousand words

That won’t be heard

Unless they listen first

**

You have listened to me

I know that you have

Or we wouldn’t be going down this avenue together

Through any kind of weather

If there’s sunshine we’re glad

When we enjoy time, it’s better

**

So unrefined

Expressing our mind

Caring about time

Consider the big picture first

In our lives we’re immersed

We know what it’s worth

We need to be heard

Saying only fair words

**

Its not absurd

Fair words in context

Should not be obscured

By a little blue bird

We must have some say

We will make our way

Don’t think worse

Break the curse

I’ll push the verse

Wish I could just

Be less pressured

And the world was cured

So that each one of us could

Please rest assured…

**

Our nature picture

Is just one piece of life

The visions I post

Might not be

Something to toast

But I’m getting up close

I work hard to be true to myself 

*

All strong and kind

Sharing my mind

Caring about time

And picturing peace on Earth

For what it is worth

No bubbles burst

But we won’t be heard

Unless they listen first

***

A Reflection

The day is only a reflection

of what you think it might be

Fiery truths

Are obscured

by the night’s long cloak

My thoughts are being pulled from my brain

And in the fall season soak

Like wilting leaves

That crumble

Now happily replaced by their own shining colours

A new tomorrow

Freed from the worries of passing clouds

**

The night is much more

Than what you think it might be

A returning shadow

That has allure

Rhythm pure as day’s best tune

My thoughts start to see through

the envelope

of a darkened room

Earth’s certain moves

So revealing

Now reading the mood of

Distant stars shining

A new today

Freely spinning with

Fast and famous sounds

**

In the deepest darkest night

Music restores our sight

The vision in our hearts

Becomes clear

At least in parts

And we put it together

With an intense faith in the horizon

*

In the clearest brightest day

Music shows the way

The magnetic pull on our soul

Defines our main life goal

And it comes together

With lead

Rhythm and bass

in our new sky’s song

**

In between sun rays and moon beams

are thoughts that can calmly take over

Some heralded as brilliance

Reflecting the sun

Some deemed

quite clearly as mediocre

We all do our best

We are who we are

A shooting star

A teacher or joker

If we look up to the sky

With a song that won’t lie

Our dreams 

Surely will go far

**

The twilight is often a projection

of what you think it might be

A deciding haze

Connects nights to days

Reality we invoke

Our thoughts

At these times come through most

The sun on the moon thrown

Paint on a stone

That stays or fades

And plays in the window

*

Intense moments of rock

A new forever

*

Free to change time

With each heavy thought

The Money Machine

Feeling ill for a couple of days

Bounced back today

I’m hoping for a good sleep

*

Work and toil

Energy coil

Forever loyal

Takes a lot out of us

Kindly

Giving us back days again

Where we work and toil some more

A little break

Some rest we take

Hopefully get to celebrate

I love my jobs

I’ll just keep going

You just say when

**

Feeling low like you see me sideways

Anyways

The angle seems way too steep

Stress and problems

We struggle to solve them

Society evolves them

Takes a lot out of us

Kindly

Give us credit for our days again

Avoid stress and problems but don’t ignore

A hot take

Give me a break

Hopefully find some peace of mind

I love my life

I’ll keep going

You just say when

**

We work in the money machine

I like it fine

but for a long time been seen

On the fringe of the material

Never feeling too inferior

I’m all wound up

A charge of energy

Let me see

Everything

That we need

Free from greed and be

Loyal only to a true source

All at once and sum more

Share the labour and rewards

Plug us in like electrical cords

What ever you can afford

**

Feeling bold

We fight through hard days

Bounced back today

I’m hoping for a big win

Daily grind

Energy spikes

Use our body and mind

Takes a lot out of us

Kindly

Giving us back good days again

Maybe we need to grind some more

Records we break

For God’s sake

We need

A reason to celebrate

I love my world

I’ll just keep going

You just say when

**

We live in the money machine

By design

but for a long time unclean

On the hinge of the material

Oiled but not too superior

All tuned up

A charge of energy

Let me be

Everything

That we need

Free from greed and be

Loyal only to a true source

All at once and then sum more

Make neighbours aware of their hoards

Light us up on our handheld billboards

What ever you can afford

**

Fear and greed

Try to shut down the good hearts

Hide the connection

To shared empathy

If we’re low

They think we can’t be that smart

or capable of feeling anything

Useless rabble, happy to vex them?

Will become found souls

When

they find our angle

A dimension of feeling

in the money machine
