The Social Justice Warrior

How splendid are we

The Social Justice Warrior will plea

They argue in ignorance of the free

A constitution recognized only for their need

SJW you bite the apple, the forbidden tree

Are there secrets you refrain to see?

The devil does not exist

Safe to say you agree?

SJW you do what you’re told

Don’t disregard the facts

Don’t put logic on hold

Please chalenge authority

Don’t always believe what’s been sold

SJW beating the drum so loud

Stirring the divisions

Stirring the crowd

It validates the agendas

Of which you are so proud

SJW a proxy to a disease

The average man now on his knees

Prince or pauper; who will you appease

A nation of laws

A constitution now under siege

Parties that point the finger

Often become the bullies

We all want accountability

We should all want honest debate

Because we disagree

Should we not seek common ground to conflate?

To the libertarian…an individual is important

To the Progressive… the collective is the vital thread

From culture to cult

Yes that is what I said

We the people

Live with tolerance and controversy

What values do you support?

Is it left only to subjectivity?

SJW speak up and speak loud

Are you sure of what you believe in…

Is not covered in any shroud?

Conduct ourselves with integrity

Conduct our behavior with etiquette

Forget the hive mentality

The mob may not always rule, not yet

Consider the issues wisely

Don’t listen to the gang of fools

Know who are the puppets

Know the operating tools

The republic is not perfect

The truth written in our decree

We the people

in order to form a more perfect union

established justice secure domestic tranquility

provide for the common defense

promote the general welfare advance

secure the blessings of liberty

to ourselves and posterity

do ordain and establish this Constitution

for the United States of America

It Starts with a Hello

 

It starts with a hello.  If you want to begin a conversation with people dear to you, but because of a misunderstanding or some miscalculated past communication fall-out our pride and thinking keeps us from contacting the other person.  We fade and lose contact with those once close to us.  We will inhibit our motivation to re-connect with that person and fail to meet the other person on a level grounding.  This level grounding can only begin with hello and engage each other once again.  We must stay in the present, and not stay in the past.  We cannot control other people, we can only ask and try again to reestablish a relationship with those we lost favor with.  There are forces that we cannot control, influences we could not mitigate.  If we are not allowed to spend time with them, then they may never change their minds.  And if indeed they begin to spend time with us again, we can enable ourselves to re-connect a broken communication.

The most painful illustrations come from broken family relationships.  Even more devastating examples are in the broken parent/child relationships.

 

“To forgive is not for the “sole sake” of relieving another of their guilt, but rather for the “sake of the soul” that had been perpetrated upon!” —DC Gunnersen
“To invest into a memory that will only take you down a road that cannot be traveled is futile and counter-productive. It takes us away from the here and now, and it only impedes our well-being when we give nostalgic cadence to this venture.”
DC Gunnersen

 


It starts with a hello

So much time has passed

I hate to see you go

In younger days, we trusted and loved each other

But somehow in today’s world

You have no words to utter

I do care how this came about

I can only fix what I know

If you don’t talk

I become an exile with nothing to show

The judge, the jury, and the sentence

Does this fit the crime?

I think of twinkle twinkle

I think of the twinkle twinkle nursery rhyme

When the blazing sun is gone,

When the nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Then the traveler in the dark,

Thanks you for your tiny spark,

He could not see which way to go,

If you did not twinkle so.

In the dark blue sky you keep,

And often through my curtains peep,

For you never shut your eye,

Till the sun is in the sky.

As your bright and tiny spark,

Lights the traveler in the dark.

Though I know not what you are,

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

How I wonder what you are.

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

How I wonder what you are.

How I wonder what you are.

It starts with a hello
It starts with the willingness to re-connect
If we are correct, than it is only a matter of time before we have confirmation
If we are wrong, we may miss out on a once treasured relationship
We may have impeded what should not have come to pass
We may have misjudged someone and our own thinking can be corrected
If we don’t forgive them, than we should at some future point forgive ourselves

 

From Peasants to Kings


From peasants to kings

We all need the same things

How we measure our wealth

And the value we place on our health

Teaches us our utopias

Are just thoughts away from our dystopia

Seekers young and old

Must remove the decoys of blindfolds

The distractions that we face

Are all too much commonplace

In 1513 Ponce de León sought the fountain of youth

A never-ending desire, a never-ending truth

Jason and the Argonauts sought the golden fleece

But in the end Prince Jason, would not find any peace

Sir Perceval and Sir Galahad; Knights who sought the Holy Grail

Another illusive search, another illusive tale

Dorothy and Toto finds a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Lion in Oz

Only to find out that a happiness, can only be self-caused

A quest for a better life is not as hard as you think

We separate our reality by story, to awaken to this truth in a blink
