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

The Balance of our Temperament

Be honest with your feelings

You must decide how to engage

Use reason with emotion

Don’t act as if all the world is a stage

If you are not authentic

You hide the truth and thus deceive

The worst is not in deceiving others

But rather it is when you deceive yourself I believe

One can argue

They are both forms of the same deceit

In any case one must have a moral compass

For one to take a receipt

Be true to the heart

It is best to feel deeply

That is to say

You will embrace your values completely

To be authentic

Is to be free

Escape from a double standard

Escape from hypocrisy

If you are ever wrong

Your logic and reason are put to test

No matter how strong the feeling was

Your course will change to settle the unrest

There is no contradiction

Be true to heart and feeling – let your conscience be your guide

One to balance the other

So that the truth should never hide

I have been hurt deeply

My heart left open to enjoy

But feelings aren’t always mutual

And so the story of a heart used as a toy

Yet I would do it again

Given lessons that I have learned

The balance of our temperament

Is now what is yearned

My Poetry is my X-Ray

The universe is mysterious

Connecting to messages we send and receive

Responding to what is positive

Or that to which we grieve

Somebody living in Boise

Relates to someone in San Diego

Somehow a connection through the ether

Slips out of the shadow

I know you’ve experienced loss

But in loss we can also find our way

There is a purpose in our healing

Pain is a teacher but it does not have to stay

Even 953 miles

Does not seem far away

Something I can’t really explain

So my poetry is my X-Ray

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

I Have Never been More Certain


I write to tell of my feelings

I write to try and understand

Sometimes we need to hear ourselves

Not listening to what’s in the hinterland

I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it

The world changed in the dark gloom

I was alone but I still fought for a life

I kept my faith, I didn’t presume

Taken by surprise

You brought my life vitality

Something I did not expect

But I was attracted to your personality

I was receptive

I wanted to strive

Because of you

I wanted to thrive

I seem to think that your story

Just might be similar to mine

You didn’t know what to think of me

But somehow we connected

Over these months that we have spend time

The many wonders of the universe

We have much to figure out

I have never been more certain

With the girl from Los Reyes Michoacan De Ocampo I am devout

I Wanna Visit Sacramento

I wanna visit Sacramento

Your family is not far from mine

My mom lives off of the river on Cadillac

Your dad lives near the road Calvine

I’d like to meet him if we ever pass through

I’d like to tell him how I feel and this is what I’d say

Your daughter is kind, smart and beautiful

And I am falling for her in these ways

I promise I will always treasure her heart

I am committed to serving her till the end of my days

I wanted to tell you this face to face

I wanted to tell you this man to man

I am interested in your daughter sir

And I would like your blessing for her hand

I seek to grow

With you in my life

I love my girl from Mexico
