If we are pure in vision to see

An afterthought of reflection

Little did I know at the time of this transaction

As my luck would have it

I would be forever compromised in my satisfaction

In many cases of human bondage

Attachment is not always clear

Even more astonishing

We are the architects of our fear

The guardian angel

In our life there can be

Many chances to nullify

If we are pure in vision to see

Being mindful in the present

It’s funny when you remember

Mistakes that you have made

Moments with your past loved ones

As time moves on they usually fade

But sometimes in a dream

The mind will reflect

Reviewing the old memories

You now seem to neglect

Awaking to what is here and now

Can benefit you greatly

Being mindful in the present

We can extinguish “What have you done for me lately?”

Life is too precious

I embrace the joy

When I see the things line up in place

Time spent together

Sharing the world as I look upon your face

Knowing there is no expectation

Knowing only these feelings that stand

Part of the uncertainty

Is built into the hand

I don’t rely on criticisms

They only detract from the moment

One can spend a lifetime

To that which is unspoken

That which is meaningful

Is better when it is said

Never leave the heart unopened

Never leave it only in your head

Life is too precious

Rejoice in what life can offer

Too many of us never act

We leave it in an unused coffer

Father Time is undefeated

Stuck in the past?

Lived a life already gone yet?

Again to relive?

What had taken so long to forget?

Can’t help it

Caught in this mess

Turning away only helps for a bit

But sooner or later

Gotta make good on your wit

Unprocessed trauma

Runs silent runs deep

Not much to discover

When it’s held in its keep

Father Time is undefeated

Self-Reflection

Self-Reflection

The razors edge

To better myself

I’ve made this pledge

The search to improve myself

On the lessons of my life lived

Can benefit me

On the perspective that it gives

Yet I’m chasing a ghost

When I dwell on the past

I no longer serve myself

As the cost is vast

You heal from wounds

Not by attaching to the grief

Reliving a memory over and over again

There is no relief

One must move forward

I must create a new me

Build upon a new foundation

On how I intend to be

DCG

A Fish out of Water

A fish out of water

I only want to belong

Ever since the childhood playground

I’ve sung this song

Introduced into the schools

You eventually swim along

Slowly learning to mingle within

From what you get wrong

With every age

We can learn and grow

Still a need to belong

Into what we forego

But there may come a time

When our values will exceed

These fundamental drives

This fundamental need

When looking back in reflection

Upon the skills I have acquired

I appreciate self reliance more

Than that need to belong that was once desired

Valentine’s Day

I saw your picture today

You could be a million miles away

But I’d still feel you close

I know this sounds so cliché

You never cease to amaze

A heart that is generous

A heart of gold

You make it look so effortless

I wonder how this will unfold?

What’s a poor boy to do?

I want to tell

I want to show

Just how I fell

That last domino

There is something

I only know

I ask for your company

Because that’s when I glow

I ask for your permission

For me to participate

Showing you the difference

In your life that I can make

It’s really not that silly

Sometimes we connect on wavelengths

Others do not notice

Others do not appreciate

In this case I recognize

I think It’s fair to say

A healing is among us

For me everyday is Valentine’s Day

día de San Valentín

Sans Vis a Vis

Here I write my thoughts for the day

Telling of my feelings

As I will share with you in this way

You can come here to learn

You can come here to see

Find out what I’m feeling

Find out all about me sans vis-a-vis

I’m an open book

Expressing here without reservation

Visit here anytime

Expressing here without hesitation

I might not tell you everything face to face

But you can always come here

To find my thoughts and heart in this place

I pour my heart into these pages

The truth is my aim

Balancing my struggles

You will find here what I proclaim

No matter how personal

The gentleman I wish to be

I document this pledge

And attend to privacy

DCG
