Only we Hold the Key


Imagine what you could do

If you took off the chains

Set free a potential

Releasing the reins

The artifice of ego

A coming of age

No need of narcissistic reinforcers

Time to open the cage

Forgiving past failures

Not repeating past mistakes

Adopting better behaviors

Not worrying about any bad breaks

Resolution

A better me

Opportunity is yours

Only we hold the key

We Must Follow our own Lead


Routines are healthy

But if you are caught in an unhealthy routine

The delivery from your situation

May be hidden and unforeseen

Don’t expect others to help you

Your loved ones may not know

The disparity in your life

Is something we often will never show

Recognition is crucial

The self-aware will trip over the pain

Not just once

But again and again

If we pay attention

In order for us to succeed

We must follow this simple rule

We must follow our own lead

I Heard it from the Dali Lama


I heard it from the Dali Lama

It was also JC that said

For those that do you wrong

Return with goodness and love instead

We do not have to agree with others

We may have a different point of view

But we should not personalize emotional attacks

It is this animus we must see through

If you shine light on any darkness

You may be surprised at what you see

We must rise above our own egos

Respond with kindness to truly be free

Change a mind with kindness

You will work good deeds in belief

Change a heart with kindness

You will forever cast away any opportunity of grief

Just a Mad and Bitter Chant


So you’re angry at the world

A passive-aggressive rant

Condemning those around you

Just a mad and bitter chant

Ironically you claim to follow the Buddha

Clearly you know not what he was about

Your moral turpitude alone

Leaves me with no questionable doubt

The rage you give this power to

Will consume any goodness within

The sooner you put this behind you

The sooner you can again begin

Before you lecture others

Resolve the issue from within your own heart

If instead you cling to this venture

You will slowly tear yourself apart

Your Actions Become your History


 

 

Have you ever followed your thought

Out to its conclusion?

Don’t live in the past

Only the present holds the solution

I’ve found out a lot about myself

The feedback from friends that I forgot

Exhibits my selective amnesia

Equivocation of an afterthought

We makes choices

What if I am not who I think I am?

If my memory serves to hide me from truth

Where does the scrutiny begin?

Take a good look at yourself

Become what you want to be

Never forget where you came from

Your actions become your history

It’s a Hard Line to Walk


It’s a hard-line to walk

When you put faith in your belief

Others not doing right by you

No sigh of relief

What is widely criticized

Within the books of faith we preach

This voracity is never equally distributed

With a revisionist history and the scientific method we teach

Thanks to Bill Gates and his foundation

K-12 is under siege in public education

Only a generation away from critical thinking removed

Common Core and it’s mandate of federalization

Another nod to Rockefeller influence

Another nod to Vanderbilt’s treachery

Infiltrate the University systems

Denigrate a liberal education for over a century

We All Need Inspiration


I like that you inspire me

A breath of fresh air- the oxygen for my soul to feed

I thrive when your influence

Allows my heart to again be freed

Some people irradiate an energy

A silent nurturing for a receptive soul indeed

Allow me to show this open heart

One you can easily read

We all need inspiration

A positive agency for a planted seed

And so I pay homage to my muse

One that helps me to proceed
