Spindrifts, 14,000 feet at dawn
Ride a Devils Backbone
Where few have ever gone

A step across the great divide
The Continental Rift
One foot on either side

Thundering voices all around
Wind, granite, sage
In wonder without a sound

Sights beyond words, I have seen
Awed to stand before
These places I have been

Through The Years

66cd54ff-f01d-4e36-9ba9-0bcd15d4ee72

In time all things fall
Insanity softens to understanding
It was not that, ever
Simply a Truth, beyond its time

Embraced, reconciled
Never apart, but finally accepted
Maybe known before its time
I was, am, that I always was

Now to feel more, and think less
Silence is no longer boredom
It never was, yet was unheeded
I am finally enjoying the play
And I applaud

Stoic.

 

I Was

playing

I was a boy throwing sticks
The chestnut tree so tall
Hours every day
The prize that would not fall

In driving rain before school
I would try to hit
The autumn’s last prize
Never doubting it

“Conkers” was the game
On a string to split
Oven baked on a string
That final hit

And I remember that
A life so simple and pure
So free in innocence
That life endures

Breaking Point

Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc. (Official Video)

Today I found it!
That point we all ignore, but…
We know it is there.

When we are done
The point of no return
And I am free.

Shackles gone forever
Cares mean nothing
Floating on a breeze.

I will ever be the little guy
Guitar on a ledge
Beyond the world.

Feel Good!

Stoic.
