What Matters

 

Why can we not begin each day as if it was our first?

Why do we carry, a dead past forward?

That is gone, and this is this

I greet you anew, as you do too

 

Past never was

Only now

Face to face

Matters

Land Of Dreams

Nothing is, as it seems

Veiled and false

In this land of dreams

 

Beauty covers pain

Deeply hidden

No one is to blame

 

What you may want

Others become

Farther from the Fonte

 

Cut the subtle vein

The horror within

As life yields to pain

 

And awaken, please

From this play

You have the keys

Life In The Shallows

Sparkling and bright

Reflections always abound

Beauty is all around

 

Apparent glory

Enamored and lost

 

We are bedazzled

 

Maybe we feel the tide

A slight pull to Openness

We blindly resist this

 

And it is gone

We continue

 

Closed to possibility

 

Life in a Tidal pool

Safe in a familiar place

The Truth not yet faced

 

The Ocean waits

The Great Unknown

The Dark Abyss

 

Some may venture

Into the depths, the deep

Others rest in sleep

 

In sorrow, we feel

The pull of the unknown

 

Into Life beyond, freedom

 

To understand it all

As it truly may be

As it reveals we may see

 

Not what you thought

Could ever imagine

 

All of Life.

 

 

 

 

In A Dream

I once had a dream

I wore my favorite flannel shirt

In a mall store

People all around

 

I talked, to someone

Asking for help

The details fail me

But they were confused

 

In a mirror, I saw

Myself, yet I was

Other than I am

Bent, but still someone

 

A stranger ignored

Disabled and twisted

Words that I spoke

Others could not hear

 

So clear I tried

To tell my side

But ears never heard

Any of my words.

 

Note:

 

In this world, I work with and support, Vulnerable Adults, those with MR, Cognitive disabilities, Developmental defects, Mental Illness, and TBI, (Traumatic Brain Injury,) and so it has become a large part of who I am. I have learned more from my friends than from the mainstream world. I smile more, laugh more, and take life a little less seriously…simply happy to be here.
