Be Mindful of the Disenchanted


Don’t give up on yourself

When you think all is lost

Giving up all hope

Is too great of a cost

Sometimes we are awake

Sometimes we are asleep

Never telling ourselves the truth

That we are consciously willing to speak

You might call it denial

Or a self-defense from pain

Self-medicate to escape reality

How far must we fall before we can reach for the sky again?

I’ve had some set-backs

I have also loved others if it’s all the same

Not unlike the Johnny Mandel song Suicide is Painless

There are many who will not refrain

If you are compassionate

Having a willing moral compass to share

Be mindful of the disenchanted

Heal a heart that is woefully bare

The Indictment of Human Reason


If you aren’t able to change the mind

You force our will to subjugate to a ruling class

You criminalize ideas you can’t win

You circumvent the impasse

You want to bring down a nation

You defile the populous from within

Indoctrinate and dumb down the children

A cultural original sin

All the judges of history

Will not be silent

Even if you re-write the history books

We will never exonerate the violent

You can change the language

Make it all about hate speech

Attack the first amendment

For those who follow I will beseech

You cannot get inside my head

My reason is sound

If you put my body in jail

My mind will never be bound

The indictment of human reason

Liberty under attack

Who will tow the line?

Who will double back?

The Many Signposts on our Path


You tell yourself a fantasy

The expectation is defined

If you are able to see the truth

A reality is refined

You will never see the light

If you continue to look in the dark

How can you correct a wrong?

If you never attempt to embark?

Do you ever question your motives?

Take the time to examine your spin?

Do you always come out on top?

Does your justification always win?

By definition we are not perfect

But only some are receptive to see

The many signposts on our path

Will remind us but with no guarantee

The Travesty of a Generation


So you think you know about the world

Espousing something you read from a book

Something that a liberal arts professor said

But did you research it yourself and take a good look?

So if you’re going to make an argument

You better learn how to make your case

Only the rules of logic

Is what you must embrace

Do not trust the sophist

Nor the emotionally manipulated mind

Not the religious scientism cult

These are all of an ignorant kind

I have pity for the indoctrinated youth

I have contempt for federalized education

A travesty of an ignorant populace

The travesty of a generation

The World keeps Turning


Do you change your mind?

Or do you stay the same?

When your arrogance fails

And your vanity remains

Are you quick to point the finger?

When a misunderstanding takes place

Are you prone to have an argument?

As you get up into their face?

Are you thoughtful of an opposing opinion?

Another point of view?

It’s not about proving who’s right

It’s not all about you

We are not the center of the universes

No matter how much we want to be

The world keeps turning

Learn to get along with those whom you disagree

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
