Don’t Fall for the Doom & Gloom

When the world turns into anxiety

Closing in on me

I let it be

Then get my mind to

Set me free

To help me shine through the days

*

Don’t fall for the doom

Wake up

Fight off the gloom

Embrace ideas of hope

With thoughts that will roam

And bring peace back to the room

And all of our shared spaces

*

When the world causes toxicity

To harm you and me

I must compete

Make great efforts to

Set us free

End corruption and find grace

*

What would I do

What would I do if

The world caused anxiety

To close in on me?

I won’t let it be

But get my mind to

Set me free

To take us through hard places

To good days

*

Don’t fall for the doom

Dial in

Fight off the gloom

Embrace the idea of hope

With thoughts that will roam

With resilience back

We find true

Peace in our internal personal spaces

*

When the world’s inherent toxicity

Aims to harm you and me

I just compete

Increase my effort to

Set us free

End deception to

Set the pace

*

Don’t fall for the doom

See through it

Dissolve the gloom

Embrace plans with hope

Extend what we know

Thoughts to

Bring peace back very soon

To all times and to all places

Arms Outstretched

Days of work left

As I prepare for the holidays

I drift through the hours

Falling playfully

Here

Then there

Dropping fast

A flashing pinball

Into a field of silver

Spheres extending arms

Like rigid feathers

Or old school t.v. antennae

Connecting in a blanket of visions

And of sounds of crisp crackling goodness

*

Ways to see the good

May be far and few between

Sometimes they’re very clear

Sometimes they can’t be seen

Here

Or hiding

Anywhere

The elusive wildlife

Is always there

Every being is wild

In our habitat, Outstretched

Awareness results from our senses

Starting simple

As a sketch

*

We develop feelings

Many times

With dots that we connect

With no choice assuming

Other times

Requiring a good effort

To solve mysteries with poise

We find an understanding

Of what we hear and see

Strut our stuff

And use our voice

Value hides

Assumption presides

Until our best sense is deployed

*

‘Best sense’ can be what we see

Like a million snowflakes on a tree

Then gone into another form

Another place when It gets warm

Sometimes our best sense can be heard

Like when we share a friendly word

Hello

The day is up to you 

Best wishes you are happy getting through

I’ll keep saying what I say

It’s all on me

It’s what I do

***

Accept Emotions

Explosion

The notion

Blasting from my head

The emotion everlasting

Connected by a thread

*

Joy

Love

Connection to Life

Tied to other minds

A web that holds us tight

These strands are caring

Aware and

Allowing freedom to move and explore

Vulnerable 

For moments

But still strong to the core

*

Corrosion

Erosion

Crashing in my head

The emotion that is clashing

When I’m left for dead

*

Fear

Doubt

Difficulties in life

Blind to other minds

Discarded fast in fright

Their alarm is scary

Unaware

Without a view

They choose to ignore

*

Oblivious

For moments

Enough to start a war

**

Before we meet that moment

And fight for all it’s worth

Before we base it all on an opinion

We should first

do all our research

We all share the earth

*

Fear and doubt

Get out

Get out of our minds

*

Find courage in time

Bring on joy and love

And no worse

In emotion:

Find today immersed

**

An ocean

Devotion

From my heart fast to my head

The emotion surpassing

Everything I said

*

Before or after

Or right now in our life

We need time for other minds

Their visions out of sight

These thoughts are caring

Aware and

Allowing freedom to

Achieve and want more

Comprehend in moments

On the level, what’s in store

**

When we meet that moment

And fight for all it’s worth

When we base it all on hard cold fact

We should then

Share all our research

We all live on earth

*

Fear and doubt

Should get out

Get out of our minds

*

Find courage in time

Bring on joy and love

And no worse:

Accept emotions

And the start of the first verse

Caring is All that is Needed

Every day

We walk a fine line

Some moments are so easy

Other times just grind

But I don’t mind

I still try to be kind

And work

for an outcome that’s pleasing

*

In another moment

Stress may catch us

I still try to feel fine…

More of the time

**

Every hour

We can design time

Some plans work out so easy

Other times just grind

But I don’t mind

I still try to be kind

And work

for an outcome with reason

*

In another moment

Stress may reach us

I still try to act fine…

All of the time

**

Life changes with

An event

A mood

A feeling

*

One false move

And a day

Comes crashing down

*

Watch each step we take

On the ground we pound

Stay real and

Make it better…

Through any kind of weather

*

Find ways to feel fine

More of the time

We can find a way together

**

Life can rush fast

Don’t lose control

even though

Some moments are speeding

The times fly by

Savour every breath

We must know

Caring is all that is needed

*

Be strong and hold on

When life gets wild

Love hard and rock on

Use logic and reason

We can go with the flow

Or the time of the season

Compared to many

Our life is easy

**

Every second

We have chances to shine

It might not seem that easy

Some times just grind

But I don’t mind

I still try to be kind

And work

for the outcome we’re needing

*

In another moment

Stress tries to beat us

With good mental health I find…

No matter the time:

Life can not defeat us

No Superficial Truth

Shown up

By superficial truths

I don’t look cool

Because I’m too real

*

Blown off

With no immediate use

Treated like a fool

Because they can’t feel

*

They can’t get a hold of empathy

They would rather ignore everything

Kindness cramps their style

I love them still

Try to make them smile

And share goodwill

**

Grown up

To superficial truths

I don’t make the rules

It’s not my deal

*

Thrown off

With no immediate use

Treated cruel

To break my spinning wheel

*

They can’t get a hold of words I speak

They would rather ignore

Everything

Kindness is not their style

I love them still

Try to help them smile

And share goodwill

**

Sure I’d like to break them down

The superficial truths

The oblivious goofs

Help us see what we can see

With empathy

So we can learn to function better

If they take advantage

They are indebted

If they are cruel anyway

I’ll still work on my own

To be okay

**

With breakthrough moves

Immediate truth

And endurance to prove

This kind of love may dissipate

But won’t forever stay away

*

I want to crush

Bad attitude

Or meet halfway with a strong, calm mood

Then if darkness should intrude

We get down to the truth

**

We may forever go our own ways

Someone may win

Someone may pay

But the rules and views

Should not be misused

Based on

Deceptive

Superficial truth

**

Stone is

No superficial truth

Beneath is a Jewel

That is such a steal

*

Hone in

On an immediate use

Treat me like a tool

Functioning to heal

*

They can’t get a hold of all I see

They would rather ignore everything

Kindness is more than style

I love them still

Try to earn a smile

And share goodwill

Moonlight Vision, No Problem

No Problem

We caught him

Before he got too far

Like a balloon flying away

Or a shooting superstar

*

No problem

We saw him

Just after the show

Like a super natural vision

Intense emotion glows

*

Nobody can argue

There’s something wild about him

“No problem,”

He said as he reached through the sky

*

Nobody can argue

And no one ever doubts him

“Hold on,” he said, “For a Moonlight Drive”

***

Get Through to the World

Save the date

It means more than

Anything

You know you are the one

One in eight billion

You are the exception

*

It would mean

Everything to me

if you could be here

Everything

Everything will be alright

If we just hold tight

We can all make it together

If we fight the fight

**

SpeakingFreely

*

I made a mistake

And it could have cost me

Everything

*

I didn’t hurt anyone 

When all is said and done

But they took exception

And could’ve cost me

Everything for sure

I have to be clear:

Everything

Everything will come to light

That was out of sight

Virtues come through no problem

Just have to right the right

**

The situation is changing

All of the time

If the wrong stuff stays the same

Go to your mind

Think faster

Think further

Don’t draw the line

*

You may think you know better

Know more

Know best

Make no exception

In all lives invest

*

Get through to the world

Care for everyone

Work on

Everything

To eliminate stress

**

The perspective is changing

All of the time

If the wrong stuff

Stays the same

Focus your mind

Think calm

Think bright

You are one of a kind

*

You will think you know better

Know more

Know best

Make no exception

And you will find no less

*

Get through to the world

Care for everyone

Prepare for

Anything

And then pass the test

**

Save the date

It means more than

Anything

You know you are the one

One in eight billion

You are the exception

It would mean

Everything

Really

If you could be here:

Everything

Everything will hit new heights

Faraway stars

Still get through nights

Here we stay

Bright each day together

Open our minds

With kind insight

Feel energy for everything

Kind spirits shine forever

For everyone

Keep our visions tight

With love to guide

And never hide

Speaking freely

We light the light

And

Get through to the world

Stand-alone Nation

Another grueling day

To make our pay

But there’s no other way

In our situation

*

Those at the top of the line

Think it’s all fine

To have cheese and wine

Every day

Without earning their pay and wages

*

Yes the line tows the name

But there are

Rules to this game

Share the load fairly

Between everyone

Workloads and payoffs

Towards our elation

**

Just your usual day

We make our pay

When there’s no other way

In our situation

*

There are

Those that will fight all

To prove they’re entitled

Live decadent despite all

Every day

With some imaginary

stand-alone nation

*

But the fight causes pain

For those who

Work hard and strain

Please treat our labor fairly

Each and every day

Risking safety and health

Yet forced to be patient

**

Waiting for the pay-off

Waiting to be

shown consideration

When we work all our days

Work hard to share

The strength

Of our own stand-alone nation

*

Consistent effort

To boost health and wellness

With more understanding

Less frustration

More people working together

Pitch in

And care about

Improving the situation

**

Another super cool day

Do what we love and get paid

There should be no other way

In our situation

*

Those that won’t

Give us the time

Think it’s always fine

Try to mess with our mind

Every day

When we all should be

Tuned into the same station

*

Each has their claim to fame

But there are

Rules to this game

With all that we say

Contracts fulfilled

Conscience creation

**

Share your words fairly

Waiting for the pay-off

Waiting to be

shown consideration

When we work all our days

Work hard to share

The strength

Of our own stand-alone nation

*

Consistent effort

To boost health and wellness

With more understanding

Less frustration

More people working together

Pitch in

And care about

Improving the situation

What They’re Saying

What did you say?

Did you really mean it that way?

Usually where we’re at

makes a difference

How they take us

*

What do you mean by that?

Is that a matter of fact

Or something

off the top of your head 

You just said

in the moment?

**

What did I say?

I didn’t mean it that way

Usually my point gets across

There’s no way

that I can fake it

*

What did I mean by that?

It is just a matter of fact

Or something

That came to my head

that I just said

In the moment 

**

Two events

Two courses of action

are not connected

by any driving force

but somehow

they connect in meaning

When I say it

It makes sense

When I do it

I can’t comprehend

When I say it

Freudian slips

Sinking ships

When I do it

I feel less tense

When dreams commence

There is no power as immense

**

What  is there to say?

Is there any other way?

Usually where they are at

makes a difference

How they take us

*

What do you mean by that?

Is that a matter of fact

Or just something

Stuck in your head 

You have said

Since the beginning

*

What did you say?

How should I take it?

Say it again

And until the end

And I will never fake it

***

Rushing is Wrong

Rushing is wrong

But sometimes

A raw reaction rules

Like when we open up honestly

And surprise all the fools

*

Fools fight truth

And plain decency

Fighting for lies

Causing pain they can’t see

Because their heads are filled with pride

And they think they know best

Embracing abuse

And misinformed ties

Never put to the test

**

Could this be me

Or could this be you?

I realize what I think

is not always true

*

I’m a fool for love

And for an off moment too

Not saying I’m off target

Sometimes it’s hard to get through

Could we get further

with better

understanding

Without hesitation to improve

Share a little more

with everything we do

**

Rushing is wrong

And reckless moves can

wreck everything

Like when we act without reason and

Mess up times in our life

*

Life finds truth

With innate empathy

Guiding more lights

Easing strain we can’t see

Together heads are filled with more might

Shared perspectives know best

Avoiding abuse and needless fights

Helping pass any test

**

This could be me

Could this be you?

I realize what I think

Sometimes makes it true

*

I want lifelong love

And for every moment too

Not saying I’m so far gone

Sometimes it’s hard to get through

Could we get further

with better

understanding

Without hesitation to show virtue

Share a little more

with everything we do
