You love the things you love
For what they are
Theres no such thing as worth
No less no more

Your flaws most of all sparkle
Only your concepts regard them
As marginal
Partial to right or wrong

Your best qualities
Are these imperfections
It's our gift to the rest
If we could just express them

In essence, what connects us
Discovering together
Our pilgrimage
To loving transcendence

Like birds of the air
Drifting so gentle
Not against the wind
But with its trajection

We collide at odds
Such harsh, vitriol
Without honest awareness
That we're all in the same boat

Floating in the cosmos
We're all made of stars
Yet we can not revolve
Without another's orbit

So harness your form
Take course and shine
So bright we light up
The entire night sky

Scaling Mountains

Difficult issues come up
Tough stuff but
It's a matter of opinion
What is considered cumbersome

What holds as momentous
Isn't unanimous
So why we waste our stamina
Adding up damages with an abacus

Flattering our judgements
Undertaking solutions with sledgehammers
To crack a nut
Statutes and acts established but

In backwards fashion
Actions and practices reactive
Don't have to act indifferent
To have acceptance impassive

Sadly bad things happen
Must we act so indignant
And dignified to gratify
Individual resistance

And erase and tear up
Like grammatical errors
Trying to categorize 
Like the encyclopedia britannica

Pulling hair right out of our scalps
To control outcomes
But how come we make ant hills
Insurmountable mountains.


Demonstrating presence
Readily comprehensive
No exceptions
Shedding any past pretensions

Recommendation suggest
That everyone in attendance
Be exactly as they are
No less, no more

No foregone molds
No forewarning be told
The total unknown
In every moment to behold

Embrace it as it comes
Grateful as it goes
No labels bestowed
No chasing novels

No way better or inferior
Not past, nor foreseeable
Future that's fueling
Your path through material

Being a miracle
Perspective isn't retrospective
Let it be in acceptance
Being is luminescence.

Meant to Be

You had to go through
That which happened to you
That trajectory was meant to be
The need absolute

Each avenues 
That you've traveled through
On review the value
Shrouds the palpable

But do not doubt
The amount you have
Amounted to
Mountain views

The bountiful gaze you've made
The traits accumulated
To make great migrations
With vibration to shake nations

Or maybe just aid the change
For a single gracious patron
For the sake of creating
The occasion for revelation.


Tend to rest on our laurels
Like it's all moral
To let forethought and cause
Be orchestrated by our royals,

Of oratorical and written history 
Our fore founders and traditions be
Fixed rigidly,

Little heeding to meaning
Or purpose we just serve
As servants surfacing
With little to no coercion

We all discern the rowboat
Isn't propelled by it's own wake
Awoken we hold sway
The oarsman hold the pace,

Keep it straight and afloat
Know when to coast or start stroking
The founders are foundering
Letting the boat overflowing,

We're sinking or capsizing
Forecasters denied the rising
Massive tidal wave
Do we act rightly or behave.

mice & men

The heightened schemes
Of mice and men
The two species meet
With equal means to an end

The selfish needs
To get the cheese
And keep it
Complete disregard for indecent

Keeping what isn't ours
With boundaries cowardly
Shrouded we scour
Reaping and devouring

Outwardly spreading disease
With negligent ease
Our pedigree seems
We're an identical breed.

Non duality

We live duality 
In our reality
Backwards opposites
Distracted cognizance

It can't be that if it's this
White can't be black
Sad can't be bliss
There's no passion as a passive pacifist

Tragedy can only breed misery
Sensitivity turns pity
If you've lived with these griefs
You believe a bit differently

These hinderances we keep
Intrinsically in everything
To shelter our naive comforts
Against uncertainty ascending

Acceptability to what is
Without measuring metrics
Or separation, segregation
Life is gray yet iridescent.

Productive for what?

You must be productive
Plethora things you haven't done yet
You bumbling unstructured bum
Bottom bunk bed incumbent

Hurry up and do something
Anything in conjunction
With motor functions
Your borderline horizontally structured

Uh uh, nope, not good enough
Your putting up humble numbers
You must muster the chutzpah
You should be batting one-hundred

This judgement sure helps doesn't it
Impetus without rest
Nothing like continuous thrust
To nudge you over the edge

Silence is golden

All of humanities ills
In our inability to sit still
In tranquility, we feel the need
To impede and fulfill relief

Of tedium with instability
Debilitating the stillness
Like trying to instill peace
By drilling heavy artillery

Into the breeze
Our vulnerabilities
Are too much to will the need
Of rest, to test our sensibilities

Instead we fill the ease
Ceaselessly we intervene
But the beauty in music
Is in the stillness in between

Rhythm isn't rhythm
Without the division of emission
Into nothing but silence
It's a big mix jambalaya

You might be one
To speak with a a silver tongue
But silence is golden
Priceless is solemness

Only the lonely know it
Like Orbison notioned
How much the outspoken
Could notice if they'd just hold lips

For a moment only
intermittently hold hush
Inevitably unfold
Whatever's closed will open up.

Respect Yourself 2

I've heard you can't get respect
Unless you earn respect
The reverse is just as correct
When self-worth gets neglect

You can't give respect
When it isn't in you to give it
It can be reciprocal
But love lives within intrinsic

The dividends aren't divvied
Through difficult hard-living
We all wither regardless
So harness equanimity

We've got equality
Whether you like or not
We're of this Earth plot
We all rocking the third rock

We walking in birkenstock
Or whatever you trodden on
Down-trodden or lost
I regard you, let your guard drop

Does not serve anyone
Or anything
Steadily make pedigree
Develop empathetically

If we respect ourselves collectively
We get the temperament
Of reverence for everyone
Become one connectedness.
