Go Far

Forgive yourself
For you live with yourself
Dismiss past tenseness
And live for the now

You have a perfectly
Permissive disposition
Exquisite distinction
Individuality to fulfill in an instant

Start to tell your heroes tale
With your past avails to
Passages to brave passed
Himalayas to scale

Castaway at seas to sail
Gail force breeze wails
Unyielding terrain
Unequal travail

Blazing desert plains
Hypothermic glacial nights
Accolades amass at you lap
With each flag, each sight

You keep riding
Knightly dragons slain
Castles made and break the same
As you blaze with no blazon displayed

Anomalous you remain
Stardust rebond
You belong across the sky
You've already come so far.

Steadfast And Yet Relaxed

We don't know our own strength
The toll we take
From toes, legs, torso
Abdo, throat, face

The whole framework overstrained
Over-paced behavior
Whole array misshapen
Til it erodes away

Slowly frayed, flayed daily
From greed and shame
We retain
Each bait we proceed to take

Facebook, tweets, dm's
Social media snakes
Can leave a cheap
Fleeting remark a screen away

Harming the cohesion
Our weave like yarn texture
Our coat of arms tears apart
Like polyester

Mustn't fester
Over the sorry folly of others
The effort to judge
Is much easier than to serve

So rest assured
And set forth the steps towards
Your bettering incrementally
Beckon those against that course.


Our Home

Why do we force the course,
Of source, performing "reformance",
Against the forms of nature,
Natural organisms,

Transforming terraform,
Our born worldly existence,
Insistent on controlling it,
As if it's opposition,

Consistent resistance is causing us,
Chronic sickness,
Dismissing authentic growth,
Oblivious to it's ripple effects,

It'll be a bitter pill instilled,
When it comes time for swallowing,
Our life energy starved,
From gobbling up with gluttony,

We'll swallow it like arsenic,
Poison, toxic biotics,
What it causes,
Honestly we're probably already absorbing,

Absolving all of us,
We got the disease of disregard,
The earth wants us,
To be a part of it in all of it's art,

Heartily we must accept,
Our connection,
Acknowledging our extension,
And pledge to better our collective residence.

Allow Growth

Allow what is sown to grow
The fertile seeds to sprout
To sturdy trees flourishing
On the forest surface throughout

Shedding offspring on the ground
For chipsmunks and squirrels to prowl
And spread around
And burrow where the sun sheds down

Against pockets of mountain pine
White oak, striped maples
Climbing with quiet determination
The heights they are able

To find day light
In their wake make shelter for critters
Vertebrates, birds and insects
Catepillers hatch to flitter

In color, a subtle beauty
Becoming truly enticing
In every nook and cranny hiding
The canopy is so inviting

Let it strive.


Modesty

Why do we believe our ego so?
It sneaks in, reaches, seizing a deep hold
When we feel low and oh so vulnerable
To believe we are sheep concealed in wolves clothes

We're only deceiving ourselves
Our hell is our own making
That we create to keep at bay
From the traits we deem forsaking

A tall tale from a small frail
Part of us
That was once in arduous hardship
But honestly isn't the heart of us

We are love
Like artemis we must guard and protect
Our innocent marvelment
Before impressionable judgements scarred them

And hardened our skin like marble
What's wrong with being unremarkable
With open arms, in all that we go through
To remain modest is honorable.

Tilting At Windmills

We're still tilting at windmills
For the thrills it rekindles
Acting from will, attacking at will
The hilt reveals the willful

Without it victimhood
Fear materializes 
This fear of deprivement
This us or them mindset

If not triumphant I'm nothing
I can't live without the gumption
The harvest is my bounty
Without I become stunted

A runt scrounging
While they exceed and outreach
Without me, I must release cowardice
Unsheath and joust steel

Mount my steed for honor,
Democracy and valor
Against hyprocrisy, can't you see
Pronounce, avow you serfs

Usurpers, I'm the rightful colonel
Your service falls in accordance
Divide and conquer over the course
Of history I'll be rejoiced in

With boisterous applause
Marble carvings hoisted along
The roads I've tarred
Paved with blood sweat and heart

When it's all said and done
And I've become omnipotent
Above all else 
At all others hinderance

It may finally dawn on me
My own inferiority complex
Lead to encompassing conflict
And I'm left still uncontent

All I had to do was self-accept.

No Pretensions

Got to negate the case
To chase what I'm capable of
Whats attainable
Straining worst case scenario

Hysteria
Best case expectations
Is just a waste as well
Imagination does not straight foretell 

I'll navigate the netscape
Gladly stake henceforth
Furthermore with contentment
More important than moving towards

Success or prevention
No pretending, no exceptions
No head held intention
Of excellence or less then

Just moving in the direction
Of reverence and ethics
Lament pretensions
Need no end to begin.

You’re The Balance

Nothing is forever
Impermanence is the only
Certainly doesn't serve to be
Immersed gripped in holding

It isn't worth it
There was never a time it was perfect
There surely won't be
Let your imperfections surface

You're doing nothing wrong
You haven't lost some charm
Some spotless quality
To be everything to everybody

As you shouldn't be
You are who you are
Flaunt it unguarded
In stark self homage

It connects us all
Whether we're aware of it or not
Subconscious, unconcious
Authentic embodiment bonds us

We all long to shout it
So don't doubt it or shroud it
Be proud with the gifts
You have to give boundless

It balances our assorted
Absorption distortion 
Against majority proportion
Enforcement

What lay dormant before
You were contorted
With what others told you
Deemed more important

Your core knows for sure
That tingle in your pours
When you adoringly feel
Love for self be restored

Earnest and Honest

Penchant for pent up
Aggression and resentment
Hell bent on penitence
For offenses and transgressions

Against ones ends
A heavy debt, a dead load tolled
Over the shoulder bones
Holding it like the mythoic globe

Of vulnerability no ability to surpass
Atlas grasp
Passion and valiance alas
Do not reveal the path

Heeled in crap, so we don't take crap
Sad we've got it backwards
We only take it because 
We actually just make it up

Theres actually no atlas task at hand
No mandatory command
Branded or demanded
It's our own stand-alone mandate

Cultivated from past shame
Conditions fabricated
Gradually from pleasure and pain 
Dramatic intimidation

Placing self against status
Competition established
With differences and classes
That realistically just doesn't matter

Rather be free and modest
Than be the coolest or the smartest
Consumer of the products
That marginally boost our own regard

Or be the ruler of commerce and audience
All of that
Harness total dominance of laws
Like the magna carta offered

We're not honorable all days
In all ways
Caught up in small losses and gains
Not comparable to what others obtain

The sway of time will long wash away
Your made up doppelganger
But it can't knock reality
Of living earnestly and honestly always. 

Life Within

What we're against
And take umbrage in
With offense and begrudging
Is just an encumberment

Who are we to pass judgment
Or pass the buck and the blame
Lay the burden
On scapegoats to graze

In our quest to acceptance
Oneness and wholeness
Love and devotion
With unconditional ends

We're mostly too busy
Proceeding to be critics
Living with the privilege
To size others up inch by inch

We cannot distinguish
Individuals equivalence to
What is or isn't
Intrinsically "you"

People are not
What we define them to be
Don't be blind to see
The entire life within each.
