WikiPsalm #Three


With Compassion we recognize

The mutual connection of the human being

We transcend our differences

We liberate ourselves- the process of valuable healing

With proper care and attention

A planted seed will grow healthy and strong

Teach your children well

In compassion lies our need to belong

Piety of the Cynic


 

You keep thinking that your life’s gonna change

But what do you do?

Did ya think it’s getting any better?

Did ya think it’s a deja vu?

How much can you trust your ego?

At what cost, at what worth?

Consider it serious?

Or just consider it with mirth?

Did I turn into a cynic?

Did I write my decree?

Place myself above others?

Or put myself down on a knee?

When did I stop caring?

Or do I care too much?

Do I put myself before others?

Or am I out of touch?

Quell my faith in sincerity

Disbelief in the goodness of Humanity

Where am I to go?

Belief in wisdom, or is it mental profanity?

I must help myself

I must begin with me

Careful of my intention

Suspect of all that is carefree

I begin with an ending

I begin with a choice

The circular reasoning

Now bedevils my passive voice

The piety of the cynic

echoes bouncing inside my head

Is it my salvation?

Is it my Spearhead?

Paid my Dues


Paid my dues

No one owed me anything

Earned my way

Maybe sometimes under the angels wing

I roll with the punches

Don’t always get what I want

But when it comes down to it

Do or die on with the hunt

Don’t know if you can teach this

Don’t know when I was taught

Boils down to character I guess

Either gifted or sought

But let’s be honest

I’ve tumbled many times with scars still there

I pray to be humble

Not too salty

When balanced I’m aware

The darkest of times

Lies not in the absence of light

But in the absence of faith

Thinking there will never ever be any cessation of night

Call it a miracle

Call it chance

Swear into the wind

Or stay in a trance

Become the person

Your past self will appreciate

Inspire by beating adversity

Get on with the Chase

Love conquers all

See with your heart

Heal the wounds

Make a new start

Police Car One-Zero-Nine


Message in a bottle

Sending out an SOS

Perplexity for Felix

His identity has become detached

Aligning himself with poor choices

Police car one-zero-nine now dispatched

Pent up feelings

Will never cease to rest

Boiling water turns to steam

The heat will burn when this vapor is expressed

Ticking time bomb

The clock tick’s away

Part of the human condition

Tick-Tock; what more do I need to say?

Our capacity for emotion

Great love or great hate

The worst kind of human experience

Apathy eradicates human fate

Both the heart and mind must guide you

Especially of what you feel

The wisdom of this harmony

Is precisely in its appeal
