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 Must Follow our own Lead


Routines are healthy

But if you are caught in an unhealthy routine

The delivery from your situation

May be hidden and unforeseen

Don’t expect others to help you

Your loved ones may not know

The disparity in your life

Is something we often will never show

Recognition is crucial

The self-aware will trip over the pain

Not just once

But again and again

If we pay attention

In order for us to succeed

We must follow this simple rule

We must follow our own lead

DCG

I Heard it from the Dali Lama


I heard it from the Dali Lama

It was also JC that said

For those that do you wrong

Return with goodness and love instead

We do not have to agree with others

We may have a different point of view

But we should not personalize emotional attacks

It is this animus we must see through

If you shine light on any darkness

You may be surprised at what you see

We must rise above our own egos

Respond with kindness to truly be free

Change a mind with kindness

You will work good deeds in belief

Change a heart with kindness

You will forever cast away any opportunity of grief

The Road to Hell


The road to hell

Is often paved with good intent

Our miscalculations and prejudice

Weighs in on our consent

We say our belief

Is divinely inspired

Whether divinity or dogma

We continue with ways to conspire

To whomever we will give our praise

Our actions are mortally bound

Herein lies our salvation

As the eternal will never make a sound

We have perfecting philosophies for a reason

We are flawed and can only aspire to be divine

Yet our arrogance and our natures

Often distort what we think is benign

DCG

Enrich a life to Survive


Ethics should have a deep root

In everything that we do

Our treatment of other people

Of ourselves

And of politics too

We have all been wronged

But there are many who don’t know why

Disassociate from yourself and others

The amoral have no need to lie

What happened to our culture and people?

A devil’s ego that lives within

Excludes themselves from others morality

This herein lies the sin

A destruction of family and values

An educational system designed to fail

America’s literacy rate of 17 percent

The proof in the pudding of this tale

The greatest threat to western society

When migrants do not assimilate

If they care not of liberty yet demand equality

There defines the cultural checkmate

So if these words reach you

Keep our values alive

Educate and teach to others

Enrich a life to survive

Motives of the beguiled


Motives of the beguiled

Often hidden from the meek

Considered safe to prey on

The non confrontational are who they seek

The vapid souls

Who bring about discontent

Harm themselves

The insolent

In every interaction

And with every exchange

We have a chance to better ourselves

We have a chance to change

A pattern in our behavior

Not always self-evident

Sometimes the questions of others

Can extrude the eminent

We are not just the animal

Not just the beast

Nor are we an insect

As human reason can be released

I don’t see the truth

In the words that you speak

Only in the behavior

And the actions which you seek

Part of the human condition

We are able to reflect

Think about our past

And begin to dissect

Only the conscientious

Only the awake

Examine themselves to reconcile

Better for them to give then to take

DCG

In Ignorance We Consent


It’s not about being right

We are not the authorities of moral high ground

What matters is our actions

I claim this argument sound

The discovery of ego

Elude many it will

Distract and misguide us

The ego is a shill

The ethics in human behavior

Does not represent justice for the masses

In ignorance we consent

Representative of all classes
