Society Flying

Intelligent social creatures

Bursting freely into an open space

Flooding into branches and roosts

Never reckless or consumed by haste

*

Greed is not real when

They fight for their life

Wanting what they need

It’s how they feed

Competition within the light

Wild creatures come into sight

**

Every day keeping it real

We think we have a feel for it

They have their world

With appeal

They have to steal

every meal for it

*

They are heard

A loud bird

Caw and call intensely

But our unfair words

Make us sure

Of the rise and fall we are sensing

A flock of crows is a murder

So sinister

With our false pretences

**

Soaring high above

Almost any single story

Truth or fiction

Each outcome can be so important

When they hold bold wisdom

For our future glory

In lives we are adoring

We always want more

But when we see through biased eyes

Key views that we ignore

Prevent us from sharing

Resources we are storing

*

Like when we hold back love

from a certain group of people

Because they seem different

We label them

Trouble or evil

They may not be bad at all

Often just trying to survive

In the methods that they’re accustomed

We all have ways to stay alive

We put our heads down and drive

We should be trying harder

To help all of our worlds jive

**

Dancing intertwined

falling through the atmosphere

By chance we are inclined

All together without fear

Intolerance, an unkind calling

Cleansed quickly, the air is clear

We enhance the mind we haul

by looking in the mirror

One glance and we find

We are all so similar here

The stance to take is kindness

Call off every single tear

*

Crows may divebomb an eagle

In their fight for territory

An eagle arrives calm

Demands respect

Would never have to say sorry

Eagles rise much higher

Known as an honourable bird

Killing machines demand more praise

Sometimes I think it’s absurd

Unlike the hard-working crow

A common super-smart scavenger

**

Don’t get me wrong

Precision is cool

An eagle is regal

And rarely a fool

Their carnivorous skill

Sometimes so impressive

Yet the crow we all know

Can seem way more aggressive 

If we listen closer 

their voice is suggestive

Of ancient wisdom

From sunlight or shadows

Of the illusions and insights

That we always have had close

***

Raise a Pyramid

I must say

I’m on a mission

To accomplish what I’m wishing

It’s just too bad and I can’t see why

But nobody will listen

*

It seems what I’ve said

has been written down

Words I can’t live without 

Turn the pages

Make your wagers

On what it’s all about

*

Simple as a circle

Straightforward as the seasons

**

I must say

I have a vision

To harness more precision

It’s just so sad

And I can’t understand why

 the things we need are missing

*

It seems what I thought

has been said out loud

Words I can’t live without

Help me through life’s stages

Like daily wages

For what it’s all about

*

Simple as a square

How we stay aware

**

I must say

I have made a decision

About this intense world we live in

I should say what I want to say

Why keep it all bottled up?

*

Calmly catching on

Words hitting full throttle

In this classic model

Mind before body

We don’t want to hit the wall

*

Let’s see the road clearly

And our brains won’t get startled

By any metal friction

It’s just the gears turning

Join in this intuition

And join this peace-loving journey

Look into today’s mission and vision

Because they’re absolutely worthy

Just because we are stars

Doesn’t mean we are unearthly

**

I must aay

I am on a mission

To accomplish what I’ve envisioned

Is it too wild and I can’t see why?

Am I headed for a collision?

*

It seems what I’ve found

has been driven out

Words I can’t live without

Land on the same page

We are in a cage

This is what it’s all about

*

Simple as a triangle

Let’s raise a pyramid

***

Inclusive Patience

I make it through the day

Talk to people all the time

Face to face

I am known

On the phone or on line

I must say

Every day

It has been shown

that I’m prone to being kind

*

It is debated

I am questioned

I am constantly

put on the spot

I am inundated 

Won’t get frustrated

Patience keeps me cool

When I should be hot

**

We may fake it through the day

Talking to people all the time

Face to face

We are known

On the phone or on line

I must say

Every day

No matter what’s shown

I’m full-blown being kind

*

It is debated

I am questioned

I am constantly

put on the spot

I am inundated 

Won’t get frustrated

Patience keeps me cool

When the world does not

**

People that don’t believe in kindness

have lost their mind 

They have let their soul

become detached

But kindness comes back

*

Sure

We have to kick ass

Have a blast

And do what we have to do to get by

But we keep the edge

when we consider

everyone in the process

It’s not even about “Try”

*

It’s about

keeping standards high

Just by default: extra effort

Saying “Hello” and “Hi”

We have to profess

We know less

When we can’t find ways to help out others

*

We can be one

Have fun

Learn how to be less careless

Without protest

For the best interest of all of us

Inclusive patience

Until we’ve won

**

I make it through the day

Talk to people all the time

Face to face

I am known

On the phone or on line

I must say

Every day

Feelings are shown

And I know I’m feeling kind

*

It is debated

I am questioned

I am constantly

put on the spot

I am inundated 

Won’t get frustrated

Patience keeps me cool

When it’s all I’ve got

Today

Today has turmoil

We are buried

Under a thousand troubles

They keep on adding up

But if we are tough enough

We can

Make it to the end of the tunnel

We won’t let the world

Abandon us in the dark

**

Today has toxicity

We are blasted

By a million aggressive moves

They keep on multiplying 

But if we can make the grade

We can

Find the best ways to overcome and soothe

We won’t let the world

Lose our human touch

**

Today has the meaning of life

Let’s bring it to the light

I’m going out on a limb

I hope we all are in

I’m glad to be alive

In the morning let’s begin

All day, let’s thrive 

When it’s night

Let’s dive

And swim through starry skies

until tomorrow arrives

*

We won’t get lost in clouds

In darkness and in doubts

**

Today has context

We are blinded

By a billion personal views

They continue expanding

But if we keep an open mind

We can find more of the most valuable truths

We won’t let the world

Confuse our best of intentions

**

Today has the meaning of life

Let’s bring it to the light

We are all trying to win

I hope we all are in

I’m glad to be alive

In the morning let’s begin

All day, let’s thrive 

When it’s night

Let’s dive

And learn from starry skies

until tomorrow arrives

*

We won’t get lost in clouds

In pressure and in crowds

Aware of Ideas Churning, Emerging

I am aware

of the world around me

The life that’s out there

That runs through

*

I can get inside

deep consciousness

Get into the mood

And get behind your causes

*

I love to share

what I’m learning

Writing in earnest

Expanding ideas churning

From the source of the fire

At the bottom of the pile

**

I am aware

of the world around me

The life that’s out there

That runs through

*

I can get inside

deep consciousness

Get into the mood

And get past all the bosses

*

I love to share

what I’m yearning

Fighting to turn past

Outlandish ideas churning

Like ignored wild fires burning

It’s getting down to the wire

**

I have no answers

When you have no questions

What are we after?

Is it how it seems?

*

Who knows best?

It seems we all do

*

We fight for ourselves

Consider the rest

To be complete

**

I have an answer

If you ask the question

To avoid disaster

Play for the same team

*

To get what we are after

Move smarter and faster

*

Towards what we each want

Aim for what our whole world needs

**

We are aware

of the world around us

The life that’s out there

That runs through

*

We can get inside

deep consciousness

Get into the mood

Wild thoughts and actions cautious

*

We love to share

What we are learning

And we work fast

Good plans and ideas emerging

We protect and fuel the fire

Sharing goals of our desires

***

Extra Effort

The cold day is made colder

By people who don’t care

I’d say they are oblivious 

But actually they’re aware

*

They refuse to change their ways

Instead they set them fast in stone

They assume that hoarding money is cool

Booting humanity from our shared home

*

Planning for the future

They pack too many bags

Expensive stuff

they’ll never need

while some folks dress in rags

It’s like

Do you really need that item

for that moment

yet you won’t even know when it’s gone

Or do you need

the world that you keep spare

Someone could be using all along?

*

I am guilty too

I don’t want to share all my stuff

But the truth is

Every step I take

I stretch to try enough

All the time

I live in my world aware

And sometimes

enjoy my own intense excess

But by making

that extra effort to care

I help kind folks with less

Avoid some moments of stress

*

I am alive

A hypocrite

I preach all I want

It’s not like that

It’s like this:

Living life the fullest

Doing what we can

Steady enough

Not rocking the boat

Banging our heads to plan

Ready to cast our anchor

down to the deepest base

The water’s surface

High above

An even breathing place

*

Try by default

To stay kind

Keep that goal

locked in our mind

Intentions pure

Shared air refined

Refreshed with one key push

Much less rush

More in touch

And cleansed by time

The world can be a friend

of yours and mine

When we lay it on the line

Come through in the clutch

Build our trust

We are warm by design

Humanity defined

The Immediate Moment

Patiently waiting for the sun to rise

There has been no sound since I opened my eyes

Behind the glass windows of modern times

Outside clouds hover

the morning seems idle

*

Famously facing the bright one in the skies

There has been grey clouds since I dawned my disguise

Behind heavy doors of barricaded days

Night’s proud cover

Opens to dreams that are vital

**

A volcano bursting into rivers of gold

Years shake and shiver until brought into the fold

Blazing sunlight heats my heart and warms up my soul

The immediate moment never grows old

**

Patiently waiting for

Hell to freeze over

There has been no sound since the bees in the clover

Behind the glass window of summer’s keen chauffeur

Fall flies by quickly

the fickle year shifts gears

*

Earnestly facing fast changes in the climate

Planting patches around frost

in lines and we time it

Behind the heavy weight

of the cold earth and snow

Winter’s sleeping engines

stay silent in drifting years

**

A mountain shimmers

with fields of glowing ice

Like fire from summer’s wheels

Each seasons’ flowing lights

Spring sunshine

Will grow green

past year-end’s frozen price

The immediate moment

Always hits new heights

**

The immediate moment

Is the apex of life

The peak of

Days and nights

The summit of

Sights

and sounds

*

The immediate moment is completely unbreakable

Totally inescapable 

We must

just take it all

Now

**

Patiently waiting for the sky to fall

No earth-shattering sound when it breaks through the wall

Behind glass houses they still hear our call

Rain crashes down

It is how we all feel

*

Graciously facing each moment we crawl

Rivulets on the window

Winding streams enthral 

Behind heavy doors of impenetrable glaze

A storm’s proud front

Opens to dreams that grow real

**

The top of the day looks past morning’s fog and mist

Tomorrow’s dream runs through the trees

Writhes and twists

Yesterday’s battles shake their heads and their fists

The immediate moment is all that exists

Free

No problem here

Nothing to see

I’m climbing a mountain

I’m chained but I’m free

Rules get old

And then get broken

Challenges imposed

Will not be spoken

Carrying a weight

Heavier than harrowing boulders

Holding it all

on my narrow shoulders

*

No problem here

Nothing to see

I’m climbing a mountain

I will always be free

**

No problem here

Nothing to see

I’m swimmimg an ocean

I’m anchored but free

Truth can get heavy

When it gets spoken

My word disclosed

Will not be broken

Carrying a weight

Heavier than sunken treasure

Holding it all

Just for good measure

*

No problem here

Nothing to see

I’m swimming an ocean

I will always be free

**

I am always me

So in this sense I am free

To think what I want

Whether the world is for

or against me

*

I am always me

There’s no one else I can be

So I think what I want

Get past any pain

and anxiety

I can always be free

To get by and achieve

No problem here

It’s what I believe

**

No problem here

Nothing to see

I’m soaring through the sky

I’m grounded but free

Visions are best

Fully awoken

Solutions exposed

Let’s all invoke them

Carrying a weight

Heavier than

Blackened storm clouds

Holding it up

For our glorious crowds

*

No problem here

Nothing to see

I’m soaring through the sky

I will always be free

***

Embrace

Plan for the future

Plan for the day

Think of what we’re going to do

And what we’re going to say

*

First

Let’s resolve our basic needs

Work to care for our health

Let’s share ways to succeed

Learn how to share the wealth

Ideas, plans and resources

Extend to all

To make it work

When we move ourselves together

We move all of the Earth

*

My back is breaking

My heart is shaking

Bursting for you

I can’t ignore you

We are carrying the world

How can I support you?

*

My head is aching

The time it’s taking

Immersed in you

I want more of you

For all the world

I adore you

I implore you

To embrace all of the world

*

Plan for the new year

Plan for the day

Think of all we’re going to do

And all we’re going to say

*

Next

Let’s resolve our greater needs

Work to care for our life

Let’s share ways to achieve

Learn how to shine our inner light

Ideas, plans and resources

Extend to all

To make it work

When we move ourselves together

We move all of the Earth

*

Move all of the Earth

For all it is worth

Spinning on its axis

*

Bring people together

Overcome all of the weather

Make sure

Caring and compassion

Are active

Convey understanding

Of our basic needs

How we survive

What we are demanding

When patience leads

To keep us alive

Find content

With each day standing

*

My back is breaking

My heart is shaking

Bursting for you

I can’t ignore you

We are carrying the world

How can I support you?

*

My head is aching

The time it’s taking

Immersed in you

I want more of you

For all the world

I adore you

I implore you

To embrace all of the world
