How do you measure the sorrow?

Trauma induced suffering

The most pernicious malaise of man

How do you measure the sorrow?

Ask the Buddha if you can

Emotional scars are lasting

Intelectual scars can be treated

But it will take much effort

When the soul has been depleated

There are many who live in quiet desperation

Sometimes they do not even identify

Only the courageous will discover a path

Just how many will comply?

DCG

Through mind and body

Some of my fondest memories

Lie on a Southern California beach

Sand between my toes

The Sun I beseech

The oil on my skin

Turns me dark and brown

After this relaxing day

I’ll turn back to town

Like the Sun

Irradiating my body physique

Ideas from a great book

Stimulates the intellect I seek

Through mind and body

The spiritual realm on display

Easiest to be seen

In the picture of Dorian Gray

If you nourish the body

If you nourish the mind

If you nourish the soul

Than maybe you will find

A noble truth

A better life

Reduce the cause

That leads to strife

DCG

From whom shall we hide?

If you kneel at the alter of your sin

And bow down to the path of your destruction

Than you must eventually face

A self imposed abduction

How many of us

Compromised our common sense?

Subdue our better judgement?

Just what side do you stand on the fense?

If and when you awake

Upon self-realization

A chance for change

With self-indignation

Light eviscerates darkness

Forgiveness will always atone

The highest form of love

Is that we are never ever alone

My brother once told me

The universe will provide

To whom will we seek absolution?

From whom shall we hide?

If we are pure in vision to see

An afterthought of reflection

Little did I know at the time of this transaction

As my luck would have it

I would be forever compromised in my satisfaction

In many cases of human bondage

Attachment is not always clear

Even more astonishing

We are the architects of our fear

The guardian angel

In our life there can be

Many chances to nullify

If we are pure in vision to see

DCG

Tell me if you can?

It keeps my sanity

Seeing a beautiful smile

Keeping a sense of humor

In the madness all the while

Don’t be easily offended

People do stupid things all the time

Even pond scum rises to the top

Just be ready when the yuppies climb

Most of our absurdity

Is found in the reason of man

Anyone have any answers?

Tell me if you can?

DCG

Peel back the social veneers

Peel back the social veneers

You posit on media as real

Strip away these shiny objects

Aligning with how you want to feel

The picture of Dorian Grey

Is something most cannot see

It must be reconciled from within

Who wants to be a nobody?

Maybe an enhanced photo?

A status symbol revealed?

Boasting about a life event?

Not something you still want concealed

The problem is not what you show

The choices you make are yours

It defines much of your character

Just what happens behind closed doors?

DCG

When the pride in your belief

When the pride in your belief

Is stronger than the truth

Come Hell or high-water

The survey might say you’re long in the tooth

We may often conflate the issue

When it comes to hand

Indefensible arguments made simple

So one can understand

Do not be fooled by deflection

The premise will always remain

Don’t tread down a path of false narratives

Not unlike Crossfire Hurricane

History will not be suppressed

The information always comes out

Those once protected

Will whimper silently or they will fight and shout

The plan to save the world

The deep state now under attack

The people can now see the criminals

And yes the Patriots will double-back!

postscript:

Some may not understand me

I write fully awake

The sleeping giant is again upon us

The culture war is now at stake

 

 

 

Or are we just brutes?

Rise in the East

Set in the West

The human perspective

In continual unrest

As sure as the the Sun is observed in the sky

The people will debate

And always ask why?

Let me count the ways

Religion and tribal paganism

Had us all in a hold

The newest authority scientism

We do as we are told

Copernicus, Ptolemy and Galileo

Like Da Vinci wrote in a code

Steven Meyer meets Darwin

Which paradigm will implode?

So if we left the Garden

Harnessed knowledge from the fruit

Are we not gods?

Or are we just brutes?

DCG

Just where do I begin

We lay awake at night

As our insomnia kicks in

Our overthinking in silence

Just where do I begin?

The darkest hour

Before the dawn

Before the twilight

When all illumination is gone

Sometimes our expectations

Will not come to pass

Before our actions in a new day

Show us that we are crass

Don’t live in the future

It has not yet come to be

Stay in the now

All else is futility

DCG
