Does not the braggart remain the fool?


You can build an intellect

Upon which you shall discern

The merit of a liberal education

Applied to that of which you shall learn

When you place yourself above others

Citing knowledge and facts you claim you know

Setting yourself up as authority

Isn’t it sad that this is what the braggart must show

Social media as an echo chamber

Test the water with politicized debate

But if you never look at critical evidence

You will only achieve a stalemate

What is morally reprehensible

Using ad hominem to attack

Belittling any opposition

Wrongly deposing any rendering of fact

When moral turpitude is not taken into account

Your only attempt is to try and school

You miss the forest for the trees

Does not the braggart remain the fool?

Careful the mind does not Daunt


It takes motivation, will, and determination

And to want it really bad

But to manifest a goal in sight

You must develop the behaviors you once thought you had

As dedication and discipline

Comes with a price

Don’t rest on your laurels

Make the sacrifice

It will not come easy

You must persevere

Navigate any resistance

Keep the mind clear

Illuminate the purpose

The heart wants what it wants

You cannot serve two masters

Careful the mind does not daunt

Just Put it on the Marquee


 

The damning judgements

That some friends and family members make

Often disrupts a healing

For a soul’s sake

Maybe they are not all wrong

Maybe they only see just one part

However if not being careful

You can persuade a person to depart

Separation from friendship

Separation from the family

Separation from supportive voices

May lead to uncalculated calamity

Do we make haste?

Do we look beyond our own need?

Do we project our own views?

Are we open to concede?

Are you giving advice?

Are you listening to me?

Do you like to hear yourself talk?

Just put it on the Marquee

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 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

Be You of Conscious Mind


The moment before

You drift off to sleep

A memory comes to you

One that is buried deep

Memories often populate

And integrate with your dreams

Leaving with you a communiqué

To unravel the schemes

The mind has a way

To process the unrest

Perpetuating those feelings

You may have suppressed

A subconscious attempt

To resolve any dissonance

A conscious mindfulness

The conscription of imminence

Be you of conscious mind

Be you one to search your soul

I present to you

Our cognitive tool for quality control

Or is it just Possible


Where is the accountability

If you think you have done no wrong?

Is it better to ignore our input rather than our need to belong?

Perhaps I beleaguer

Over the inconsequential?

Perhaps I easily consign to the mere existential?

Or is it just possible

I may wake and become a better me?

Manifesting a vast potential

If and only if I allow myself to see?
