The endless division to reconcile

The foundation of trust

Lies in our honesty

Not only on the personal level

But in all of society

Truth permeates culture

Despite all of our reasons to lie

If you never ask the questions

You will never know why

The laws of man

Were meant to be applied

Equally for everyone

But only a free moral people can decide

The problem with the laws of man

The endless division to reconcile

The minds of men are compromised

The same minds that are used in the trial

Without any Purpose

Without any purpose

Without family, children, and a wife

Without God

There is no meaning in my life

There is no substitute

For these things that I say

J.P. Sartre, Soren Kierkegaard, and Albert Camus

All have yet to persuade me as I will not stray

The older I get

The more I see

To humble myself

Under the bodhi tree

A vessel must be empty

Before it can be filled

Broken down and beguiled

Now ready to rebuild

Solomon was a pragmatist

His wisdom was renowned

His rulings were just

His rulings would astound

This is not an existential rant

This is not a misplaced soliloquy

This is just a story

This is just my testimony

Manifest

Troubles got you down

It’s time to invest

Elevate your thoughts

Time to manifest

If you’re feeling blue

Time to shake the pest

It’s up to you

Manifest

Especially on an uphill fight

There is no time to rest

Better to compose yourself

Take time to manifest

So if and when

Times get tough

If indeed

You’re impelled to say “Enough”

We must learn discipline

When we confront our concerns

No matter how much it hurts

No matter how much it burns

Think not about the worry

Think not about the strife

Focus on the positive

To create a better life

It won’t be easy

You’ll have work to do

You can negotiate a better destiny

Just between me and you

You may not believe me

What works for me may not work for you

You’ll only know if you resolve to practice

You’ll only know if you resolve to do

The Charm of the Romantic

The charm of the romantic

Is a very powerful attraction

But we risk our objectivity

When we romanticize all of our transactions

Emotions are readily manipulated

Much like fantasy and the fairy tale

An audience not reliant on reason

Is often seduced by this veil

Feelings are dichotomous

If used alone they can mislead

But when used with reason

You are much more likely to succeed

This is not to say

That emotion has no merit

They embody the human condition

An essential part of living well that we will inherit

Emotion and spirit are subjective

Only with reason

Will they become transformative

If we look to anger

Petulance never resolves

If under a cycle of exasperation

Few actions will ever be solved

DCG

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 Indictment of Human Reason

If you aren’t able to change the mind

You force our will to subjugate to a ruling class

You criminalize ideas you can’t win

You circumvent the impasse

You want to bring down a nation

You defile the populous from within

Indoctrinate and dumb down the children

A cultural original sin

All the judges of history

Will not be silent

Even if you re-write the history books

We will never exonerate the violent

You can change the language

Make it all about hate speech

Attack the first amendment

For those who follow I will beseech

You cannot get inside my head

My reason is sound

If you put my body in jail

My mind will never be bound

The indictment of human reason

Liberty under attack

Who will tow the line?

Who will double back?

The Travesty of a Generation

So you think you know about the world

Espousing something you read from a book

Something that a liberal arts professor said

But did you research it yourself and take a good look?

So if you’re going to make an argument

You better learn how to make your case

Only the rules of logic

Is what you must embrace

Do not trust the sophist

Nor the emotionally manipulated mind

Not the religious scientism cult

These are all of an ignorant kind

I have pity for the indoctrinated youth

I have contempt for federalized education

A travesty of an ignorant populace

The travesty of a generation
