Unbalanced World


Where what is taken
Means more than given
Where gain is more
Than sacrifice

Where another is less
And then forsaken
Where keeping score
Becomes the price

Where love when tallied
Means what is breaking
And Love costs more
Than the sacrifice




Simply This


Sometimes, just sometimes, we stop
We simply look out the back door
And what do we see?
A world that goes on without us
A noisy road that is not our own
And we see,,,,I truly pray you see..
All of Life, is exactly this
You are Life,
Choose well



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.

The Final Step


They say I am an odd one

Never fitting the square hole

Dismissive, and done


They say I am disconnected

Alienated to the world

Maybe mentally affected


Yet I am only this

Seeing beyond the words

Never a detail do I miss


And I love this world

Never so connected

The foundation unfurled


Every moment

I live to the last

Never did I own it


I used to see

I used to know

I used to watch


A simple shift

From watching

To being


One step


Now I am










Seeing something bigger

Beyond you

Is humbling


In perspective issues fall


A life so full of beauty

Calls to one and all

If we but heed the call


And I am here


Witness to creation

A world forlorn

Every sun and moon rise


A heart reborn





In secret places seeds may fall
Fertile soil beyond the wall
Planted in time they will grow
Yet we may never know
Anger’s weeds are fast to bloom
Fear allows the growing room
Shame to feed the subtle shoots
Pride digs deep its roots
Slowly sometimes roses bloom
Pushing up from the tomb
Vines climb from deep within
Atop a wall to begin again

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
