I have travelled with a map
I became lost in this sea
Where charts failed
Floundering

Sailing into unknown waters
Adrift upon the tides

I learned of unknown lands
I found shores never seen
Where tales were born
Resounding

Sailing, the back broken
I now reside

I visited and left
I found no solace
Where legends promised
Fists pounding

Sailing berthed for now.

Never Me

1363855475_94144927j_vpQl

 

When what we do for others

Matters more than ourselves

 

We have finally gone home

 

When we fade, and become

Everything to another

 

No accolades, no praise

 

Never sought, never wanted

Given without contract

 

Of ourselves we give without limits

 

We are of this world and more

With my heart I wish

 

Another to care

 

When my time has come

And I want to go home

 

Stoic.

 

 

Lessons Learned

Each of us, we know some things,
gathered stories from the past.
Convinced of what the future holds,
we cling to them true and fast.

Standing up for what we believe,
a deaf ear too often we turn.
To every other point of view,
So many lessons we never learn.

Every person we will ever meet,
unique and perfect in their own way.
Can teach a truth we do not know,
if we only hear what they have to say.

If I Were

 

 

If I were sane, I maybe could explain,

What it is you want from me.

 

If I were blind, I could maybe find,

The words to tell you what I cannot see.

 

If I were weak, I maybe could not speak,

My mind and my thoughts.

 

Beyond your scope, beyond your hope,

Things that cannot ever be taught.

 

You are you, and I am not you,

Why can’t you see?

 

I maybe blind, but I can find,

The truth where we can just be.
