Judgement Day


Judgement day

You used to think you were a good man

What does the evidence show?

If you take all of your accounts into hand?

It’s a slippery slope

The failures of the past

More mercy shown

For those who learn fast

So when will we learn?

With every move that we make

The opportunities that flourish

The ones that we stake?

When do you realize?

When do we wake?

The ripples we cause

From our mistake

Are we reflective?

For a punitive sake?

Is it just another angle?

Are we on the take?

When there is resistance

Our actions are pointed out

When there is none

We rarely have doubt

The foundation of western civilization

Was based on a moral code

One we have once forgotten

What will we forbode?

DCG

Asking questions that never fade


Deeply troubled child

Asking questions that never fade

Never fully brought out into the light

The kind of suffering that remains in the shade

Some children don’t feel love

Less than their sibling with needs

Some parents don’t know how to show

Some parents never know how to lead

Unresolved issues

Channeling trauma from the past

Interwoven into the present

Never knowing the root of the tears that they cast

Sometimes the child

Will grow into the man

But the inner child remains

Often playing hide and seek or catch me if you can

The age of the body

Does not mirror the age of the mind

Some experiences we have as a child

We never leave behind

DCG

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 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

DCG

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

DCG

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
