In a World Full of Sorrow


In a world full of sorrow 

Think of these things 

when someone thought of you first

Sharing laughter 

The kindness that it can bring 

In a world full of sorrow 

Raise yourself up to see 

Recognize the potential for goodness 

In all of us to be 

In the law of attraction 

A conversion of energy 

Positive frequency aligns the soul 

Aligns with positive identity

Blind Master Po points to the grasshopper at Cain’s feet 

Cain says master how is it that you can see?

Master po says how is it that you cannot?

Where is your sensibility?

In a world full of sorrow 

The burdens are too easily seen 

We must change our orientation 

Cleanse the spirit keep it clean 

Cling not to heartache 

It will give you pain 

And with reflection

 You will relive it again and again

In a world full of sorrow 

Understanding is key 

Embrace only the positive 

And not calamity 

Emotional pain can be a teacher 

We can learn humility 

Attach and become sorrowful 

Or learn empathy

The Dawn of Humanity’s Twilight


City is burning

Embers fall throughout the night

Burnt ashes of a homestead

Human flesh fertilizes soil after it sails through the air on its flight

Who has the authority?

Who has the right?

Machiavelli in The Prince

Endorsed it from his sight

The imposition of law

Governance to make things right

Can still manipulate the laws

 And still make us fight

As in a society

A military uses its might

So does a single person 

wronging another out of spite

An eye for an eye

The two wrongs that don’t make a right

Only love can conquer the world 

Not a soldier and his smite

Whosoever dwelith in this world

Look back and use your hindsight

If we continue on this path

Till be the dawn of humanity’s twilight

Divide and Conquer 



Johnny can’t read

Sister Eve is autistic

Growing up with entitlements 

Have we now become masochistic?

Put a stop to these despots

Before we fall too far under control

Remember Orwell’s boot in the face

Was also on his patrol

Weaponized society

With anger and fear

Inequality and biogotry as the narrative

Logic soon disappears

Listen to the liars

Over and over again

Repeating begats believing

Adults like children

Continue to pretend

The trouble with a population

That will be torn up from within

If you continue to fight amongst each other

How soon the end will begin

Beat up ourselves

Not knowing the Masters pulling the strings

So keep your eyes on the ball

Do not fight over nonsensical things

Ask a Buddhist 

How to be clear

They will give you an eight fold path

One that is real- one that is sincere

Ask a Scientologist

How to be clear

They will give you a lifelong membership

With the price tag only a cult member will endear

The feeble minded members

The majority of the masses

The weakest link of the chain

In the chain of all the classes

Daddy please tell me

Did you fight for liberty?

No little girl

I fought for climate change and the Paris agreement

I spent all my time in this tirelessly

Nonsense is nonsense

To not see is foolish, I’d hope you’d agree

The corruption of public office

Our forefathers did foresee

The Camouflage of Ego



The stories in my life

We reminisce driving down memory lane

The house we grew up in

Sometimes causes me bane

King of the neighborhood 

I command all that I survey

Once smoked pot at that guys house

Once had a girl in that one and got laid

We measure looking backwards on how we might have been

Nostalgia distorts reality

Think you have a perfect memory

Bet some friends will disagree

Funny how we paint

With broad strokes on our canvass

Memories that are more forgiving

Selecting ones that take fewer chances

So we continue to repeat

This remembrance now faded

Pointing to the parts

That we’ve embellished and paraded

This process we use

On how we express

Accurate or not

It’s not really what we’ve done, but rather how we confess

Master and commander 

Our pride on sentry

Telling our tales

In line with our gentry

Talk it up kids

Tell us of those deeds

The camouflage of ego

Will rarely ever concede

A Foundation for the Subdued: An Ethics Fable


Honesty

A hard notion to share

When you look at yourself

Even harder to square

When we have skill to discern others

We become adept when we look about

The trouble with this activity

When we peer within ourselves we tend to hideout

The fear of rejection

The worry of disquietude

The dismay of our failures

A foundation for the subdued

Clever is the Captain

Take the helm and lead

Using the Sextant to navigate

Never inclined to secede

The problems of holding back

We impede a possible instruction

Without others as an audience

We avoid finding any obstruction

The temerity of our influence

Upon the golden mean we impose

Whereupon lies the answer

In the delivery of what we chose

Break not away from truthfulness

Cast not your pearls before swine

But to this I will implore you

Be honest and draw a straight line

Whom Among Us


It’s pretty tricky

This life that I lead

Haunted by the memories

Unforgiven for past misdeeds

I think it’s safe to assert

I am not alone

The honest disenchanted

And those who must atone

The mind will resist

All the internal pain

Faulty logic diverts from guilt

Faulty logic diverts from shame

The intolerable truth

That some may make claim

The sociopathic’s proclivity

On the affected one’s disdain

To face the world again

The twelve steps you take

Only save a few

From their self-imposed heartache

The fact to consider

The fact we can take away

The challenge for every heart to give of itself

And forgive each other st the end of the day

The complexity in life

Often exposes us to threats

Some we escape from

Some we may have regrets

Learning by trial and error

Mistakes will be made

Some sorrows will accumulate 

Some sorrows will fade

Before you cast your judgements

And all witness accounts are in

Whom among us will forgive?

Whom among us will begin?

Am I a Patriot or Am I a Fool?


Am I a patriot or am I a fool?

For those of you 

Who bleed the red, white, and blue

History will show

The heart of a country has gone askew

Right and left

Pointing the finger across the aisle

The silent masters watch with their Cheshire Cat smile

Simply look to the historians

You’ll find the commonality

We once said In God we trust 

Now we argue over gender identity 

In the cult of persuasion

A party will make decrees

Are they ones that are vigilant?

Or ones that deceive?

We the people

Trained to expect less

Conditioning our serfdom

The real human game of chess

Orwell and Huxley

Visions of gloom

The war on humanity

Continues and resumes

Our liberty and freedoms

Are now shadows of the bicentennial past

Erosion of the social contract 

Poverty for the middle class

Failures of education

America’s economy under attack

The rise of the ignorant

Now becoming amnesiac’s

Don’t be seduced

As the government gives away

Other people’s money

Social engineering

The construct of our decay

There is no incentive

For a community that wants free things

Communism or Socialism 

Feed off a body politic pulling all the strings

Rewarding the nonproducer

 The lazy man’s dream

The lowest common denominator of our society

It may seem 

If you are caught in this dilemma

And this is unforeseen

A market system controlled by the state

Are you on the right side of history?

Or do you fall somewhere in between?

It’s not a loaded question

For those of you in doubt

Just look to the central banks

The evidence for our sellout
