The Ameliorist

So you haven’t had it so easy

For yourself you had to fend

How do I get over my feelings of abandonment?

As a child I had to pretend

Sometimes it takes a lifetime

For you to work things out

If you never take any action

HD Thoreau’s quiet desperation

May surely come about

The ameliorist must make decisions

An ever changing environment we face

How do we improve our situation?

How do we stop running in place?

The path to reach any piece of mind

The thinkers must make amends with the past

Those who feel deeply must forgive any trauma

And mediate the iconoclast

Ipso Facto

We are drowning in information

While we starve for wisdom

EO Wilson was right

We must synthesize input with our central nervous system

The Buddha once said

I never see what has been done

I only see

What remains to be done

And with this said

I give you my worth

Ipso Facto

We must act on our reason perpetually after our birth

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

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

We All Need Inspiration

I like that you inspire me

A breath of fresh air- the oxygen for my soul to feed

I thrive when your influence

Allows my heart to again be freed

Some people irradiate an energy

A silent nurturing for a receptive soul indeed

Allow me to show this open heart

One you can easily read

We all need inspiration

A positive agency for a planted seed

And so I pay homage to my muse

One that helps me to proceed

DCG

The ambivalence of affection

If you act with reason

Generous acts can never be misplaced

Love is never wasted

Love cannot be debased

The failure of recognition

If only one in seventy-seven see

A change in the culture

A change in the apogee

A resource of human potential

Escaping many only actualized by the few

Love will permeate conflict

Those who love know this is true

Love has no expectation

That many fail to comprehend

Their understanding is divided

They fail to apprehend

The world needs practitioners

The broken-hearted on the mend

The ambivalence of affection

Consumes only those who pretend

DCG

For Me This is Clear

There must be a reason why I’m still here

I’ve escaped death so many times

I must have unfinished business

For me this is clear

Don’t get me wrong

I’m not trying to die

I don’t have a death wish

I’m not ready to say goodbye

Life is precious

If we ever figure this out

Influence the lives of others

And what we can cast about

W. Somerset Maugham’s the razors edge

Larry Darrel discovered a rarity

No longer a captive soul

Now on the course of prosperity

Live like there is no tomorrow

Rage on with enthusiasm within

Do it with love

Do it with a grin
