Paths

 

Until my last breath
My last gasp
I will be here
Trying to explain

The simplicity
We have lost
In the mêlée
We maintain

And to say Adieu
As I go from here
I will shed no tear
As I will see you soon.

A sigh revealed

Too long covered

Virtue and sin

Melded to one

Earth and sky

Taste of life

And knowing is

The return of love

 

 

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

 

Stoic

Missed

 

What will I miss?

 

Not the travesty of life

The uncaring hordes

Those trampled underfoot

 

Not the mindless cruelty

Levelled on the innocent

By those clad in ego and suits

 

Not the anguish every day

That I was here, and others not

That I could not save

 

I will miss dawns filled with mist

Soft silence, in wooded places

Solace in solitude

 

I will miss all mankind

In all their degrees

Praying they may learn

 

I will miss the pain

The pain that taught me

That I lived

 

 

 

In This Time

I find myself here

Never by choice

As no one does

 

Day to day

Arise and we do

What we must

 

I often question

What I have become

And I try to trust

 

That I am guided

By some hand

Knowing what I was

 

This turn of the wheel

Pray I clean the slate

Of what I am

 

Retribution is harsh

Yet I accept the price

And do as I must

 

Joy is within this

Life as it is

This game of trust

 

And I bow now

To one who was

Always, a better man.

I am unseen

the unknown

meekly I live alone

by choice, I live

as I will die

no legacy left

no one to cry.

 

If by chance

I choose to act

in charities pact

I take no thanks

I am unseen

as never here

A bow in a dream.

 

I was you

as you were me

the One ever free

I never came

you never went

though it seems

A life was spent.

Stoic:

 

The Dark Night

 

We all know it

Have felt it

Have lived it

 

The Dark Night

 

No matter what we do

Never enough

And we recede to

 

The Dark Night

 

We do our best

Give our all

Our life divest to

 

The Dark Night

 

One day, just once

We may see

Clearly, just once

 

The Dark Night

 

And John knew it

Falling down, down

It is okay, really

 

Within the Dark Night

 

When you do

You finally see

Finally understand

 

Within the luminous night

 

That you are fine

You have always been

We have always been

 

In Pure light

 

So, we do what we do

With understanding

We are still here

 

We are light

 

And we accept, all

Because we are all

And we live

 

We always have

 

And the Crucifixion is

A simile, a guide in life

What we die to; this

 

Because we are

 

We die to averice, to need

We die to the past

We live, we live, we live

 

Because we have always been

But we have forgotten. _/|\_
