Go Back

My Words

I've been dabbling with poetry for a long time now. Trying to rhyhm my thoughts in a meaningful way can be a great struggle, but the occasional easy jem eventually shines through, making the Challenge more than worth it for me.

Here are a few of my favorites...

Universal Eyes

We ride about on this mystery train
We see the sights going by
We do our best to relinquish the pain
Of living life as a lie
Most every stop we remain in our seats
Too petrified for outside
We sit and pine up some marvelous feats
To take the place of our lives

But rather than living with dream and regret
Why not take a little stroll outside
And put away all of these sensible bets
And let us take another ride

To a place where we all know what?s right
And can see it through our mind
The state of being the radiant light
A state above and beyond time
The human organism acting as One
Feeling Peace from all sides
Brothers and Sisters embracing as One
No longer national pride

And then we will finally realize the joy
That lead us in to newer land
We?ll laugh and sing as we see through the ploy
And find we have a better plan

And then we?ll understand there?s more to this life
Then sense of security
No longer needing a placating fight
To live Peacefully Free
We?ll live Peacefully Free
Oh so Peacefully Free

And all we?ve had is all we?ll have
If we never find another train
And realize that these lives we have
Are more than some economic gain

I?m trying hard not to rationalize
This living life in disguise
I?m trying hard just to trudge through the Lies
And look through Universal Eyes
We?ll look through Universal Eyes
We?ll look through Universal Eyes

Of This and That and That and This

Of this and that and that and this
We run about react we miss
We think aloud inside within
And bunker down to hide in skin
We close our eyes outside of us
Confuse bemuse refuse this fuss
It cannot be a part of me
These misconstrued realities

How could I be low be high
Be day be night be all in I
When all I see is split in two
Divided up a bit askew
But when I close my eyes my mind
And take myself right out of time
I become a better place
A calmer me with less disgrace

My wants my needs become no more
A simpler me a few less scores
To bring this me to everything
Of all I know to you I sing
I wish for all a simpler life
Of good and bad accepted strife
Unite inside within without
And find the need to scream and shout

Endless Unity

Some choose death and some choose life
The later of those meander in Light
Would you may or would you might
The former you stay forever in strife
To look within while looking out
An endless grin you'll scream you'll shout!
Together you'll see together you'll be
Together in you the same in me
Release receive believe relieve
The choice is yours I know you'll see
That you and I will always be
Forever and ever endless unity

What is Love?

What is love?
Is it the lump in my throat?
Is it a rock that can float?
Is it a smack in the face?
Or maybe a woman dressed in lace?
Is it a stomach pain?
Is it the falling rain?
Is it a sense that I lack?
Or possibly the itch I can't reach on my back?
Is it something you can teach?
And if I catch it, can it be sucked out by a leach?
Does it taste like sugar?
Or like that of a newly found bugger?
When it comes, does it ever leave?
Or does it stay like the stain on my sleeve?
Is it something to be questioned?
Is it something not to be mentioned?
Is it something I should forget?
Is it like the pain of a newly formed zit?
Is it a disease to be caught?
Or is it something to be sought?
Will any of these questions I've given,
Be answered before I stop livin'?
Or is it better that I go on not knowing?
So that my mind keeps going and going and going?
Curiosity may have killed the cat,
I'm not questioning that.
The answers I may never find,
But the questions will always be on my mind...
