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

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

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

Awareness Imposes a Social Contract


With social graces I’ve played the fool

Expecting we are purveyors of the golden rule

Despite my failures in past relations

We hold some people in our hearts

Disregarding our lamentations

The outcome is not contingent

And repeat I would do it again

To give of yourself

I would not have to pretend

After decades of experience

I’ve rendered some conclusions

Without contradiction

Without any delusions

I only speak for myself

And so I say

This works for me

With no dismay

I know I am different

Take ego out of self and you will see

The intrinsic value to share

Sometimes we can overcome reciprocity

Always use reason

Take care guiding the soul

Don’t let surface defects

Detract you from your goal

Awareness imposes a social contract

And with this responsibility

We can heal the scars

We do have opportunity

There is no perfect world

No utopian society

Hard work and sacrifice

Overcome the ignorance and set yourself free

The Archer and the Crab


I wasn’t looking

But then you came upon me

I didn’t expect what would happen

Somehow my heart is now full of glee

Maybe I was receptive?

Maybe I was under a spell?

But unlike anyone before

It was only you that I fell

You the Sagittarius

Shot me with Cupid’s arrow

The Archer and the Crab

What-do-ya-know?

I don’t think I’m crazy

What’s a poor boy to do?

I found love

I found it with you

I care deeply

Listen to what the heart will say

Having you in my life

I know now God has listened to me pray

I want only to make you happy

I’ll work hard to show you everyday

The passion we bring to each other

The passion that won’t fade away
