The Emptying

Lives are lived in pain

Chastised and often small

Truth profound yet plain

Arising above it all

 

Now there is less past

Thoughts by others drawn

Shards of shadows cast

Cast upon an empty dawn

 

Piece by piece removed

Humility fills the space

Places lies once dwelled

Empty without a trace

 

A journey of one step

Passing through a door

Taken with no regret

Now and ever more

Here Too Much

You should never be here too much

Be far away without a care

You should never be here too much

In the other place, that no one can share

 

You should never be here too much

Rest in the void beyond the door

You should never be here too much

Beyond the grasp of wanting more

 

You should never be here too much

Where they will try to change you

You should never be here too much

Where they force their point of view

 

You should never be here too much

Forced to see and think like they do

You should never be here too much

Open the door and step on through

Old Coats

I wear the past

An old coat, tattered and torn

Long in tooth

I should have long ago shorn

 

Yet it finds me again

All this lifetime to be worn

Taken off sometimes

Never far from hand to adorn

 

I wear the past

This old coat, tattered and torn

Bones broken and bent

Memories tattered and torn

 

 

Breathe

 

Sunlight through trees and I breathe
Cares of the day just fall away
A book cradled gently, words to believe
Speak and tell me what I must say

Yet I am still here in spite of it all
Alive to what I still need to do
And though I may stumble and fall
Somehow I will make it through

 

 

 

Surrender

To truth, I offer what I used to be

This shell I once thought was me

 

To your grace I bow and offer this

This burden, which I will not miss

 

Be mine in act, in word, and thought

To take to heart what you have taught

 

And as I lay me down to rest

Embraced I know I am truly blessed

A Simple Riddle

Why do we make everything so hard?

 

I am: You are within my dream, nothing more

There is only I, one, and no one else

 

But…

 

You are: And I am within your dream, nothing more

There is only you, and no one else

 

But…

 

There was never I nor you

It is a game we play without end

 

A puzzle without resolution

 

A game I play with myself

A game you play with yourself

 

Together we play

 

Yet we are one and not two

And we were never alone, nor apart.
