A selection of quotes/words from

from the THE LIFE POEMS project.


Our
Endless
Expansive
Existence

All of my attention
To the center of the action
The center of the volcano
To the center of it all
Where we are hungry and alive
Pulling our future towards us
All the missiles launched
All our exploding eruptive hearts
As we are cosmos
Creating life
Beyond who knows the distance
Beyond and within
Our endless expansive existence
All of our nighttimes
To the center of the city
The center of the dancehall
To the center of it all
Where we are sweating and moving
Reaching for each other
Gravitational pull
All our imploded exploded desires
Bodies intertwining
Creating life
Beyond who knows the distance
Beyond and within
Our endless expansive existence
All of our lifetimes
To the center of our expectation
In and out of resistance
For the defining moments
If I told you it was a mountain
Would you believe it as such
Monstrous depths of dimension
Complex beauty in a simple life
We are rising
Creating life
Beyond who knows the distance
Beyond and within
Our endless expansive existence

Bombs

I will find you
Perhaps in dreams
Here it begins
Unseen things
How to express
How I ponder
May I undress
The hidden wonders
Bombs in the distance
Dancing in the twilight
Walking through the fields of our illusions
Cover the tracks
No one knows
Don’t look back
They still won’t
How to emote
Without theatrics
I want us
To be the hidden wonders
Bombs in the distance
Dancing in the twilight
Walking through the fields of our illusions
Deep cuts are a prize
Not a fog in your eyes
A galvanized impulse to change
A chance to realize
A choice to actualize
An opportunity for every unwritten page
Bombs in the distance
Dancing in the twilight
Walking through the fields of our illusions
Bombs in the distance
Dancing in the twilight
Walking through the fields of our illusions

Our
Magnificent
World

Adventures in creation
And discovery
Understanding who you are
And choosing who you want to be
Dreams for a magnificent world
Enjoying the journey
Playing with destiny
Shaping reality
Believing in the infinite
And eternal beauty
Pulsing through all things

Small Yet
Luminous

I get lost
I get found
I am bound to a heartbeat
In the warmth
In a hold
I am strong within the wind of change

Where do the stars go in the city
Won’t you take me away
Take me where I can lay
Without the worries of the world
I will come back renewed
And we will share what we learned
We will dance under showers of stardust

Everybody gets so worked up
I thought I had control
But no, I am not immune
I still feel so small under the moon

Small yet luminous

Feel Me Out,
Feel Me Up

I’m looking for something
I cannot tell
I cannot tell you
Follow me in the well
The rain is clear and warm
Drops of waterfalls
Taking our calls
Telling us to go home
But we just go on
Cause living it ain’t easy
If you wanna see bold colors
Baby do you still love me
Is this the way it’s supposed to be
Is this how you feel me out
Feel me up
Feel me up some more
I want you home with me
But I’m not going home
I’m looking for something
I’m looking for something
I cannot tell
So I cannot tell you oh no
Cause I don’t even know
But I still love you
And I’ll make it how I want it to be
I’ll make it how you want it to be
Be patient with me
Lay with me
Feel me out
Feel me up
Feel me right baby
Feel me tonight
Cause tonight baby
It’s all alright baby
Tonight baby
It’s all alright baby

Peace
Dreamers

The world has again
Been split open
Like a bleeding wound
Overflowing pain seeping as rivers
Our eyes weeping tears
As shivers arise
From the depths of our spines
As we cry out to the highest high
Oh why, Oh why
We want to hide
To close our eyes
From the blinding truths
That pervert our beautiful planet
But we shall not shrivel in fear
Cursing the ones behind it
We shall not hate
From behind the gates
Of what once was our perceived freedom
We shall look through the eyes of all that is
And all that ever was
And ever will be
Through the eyes of possibilities
Of where humanity can go
A divine idea as mysterious
As the skies that flirt with our planets
In the galactic perfection
Of a most curious dance
A divine idea as mysterious
As the ferocious drumming that beats
Over 7 billion human hearts
We can love you, perpetrators
We can weep for the pain in your hearts
The incomprehensible lives that we rarely realize
Are calling you to a purpose
Beyond yourselves
A purpose to perhaps live for
But more boldly
A purpose to die for
For what other purpose have you grown to know
What has the world shown you?
You’ve seen more devastation
Than we could ever imagine
We can show you love
Despite how you stole the breath
Of so many of our human brothers and sisters
We understand
You have watched your own brothers and sisters
Perish right in your arms
Perish in horrific clouds of experiences
There are no words for
Where the majority of us
May have only heard about it on tv
We will rise beside you and show you
You are still loved
We shall stand strong together
We shall lift the fallen from their knees
We shall show them how to believe
In love again
In good again
We shall open doors to those in need
To refugees who sing of long nights
Of lights at a never ending tunnel
We shall sing for the good fight
For leaving them to drown in raging waters
Will only perpetrate the cycle
Let us stand together
Those who believe in the future
Where everyone knows their value
And their purpose in light
Inside their destiny
To shine
And use their one precious life
To honor and value and uplift
Every precious breath
Every precious heart beating
Of every precious living being
And understand we are all in this together
No matter the differences that seem to divide us
And this will bring us even closer
As a wall against evil
We will erupt in volcanoes of blinding light
Throughout the canyons of chaos
And when we cry
Oh why, Oh why
We will know why
So we can realize our need for more forward motion
Towards our path for PEACE
So we can further experience and embrace our love for PEACE
So we can we deepen that desire of PEACE
And drive more power behind the idea
Of love and P.E.A.C.E
And a life worth living for E.V.E.R.Y.O.N.E
And for those who have the power to empower ourselves
To use it for good and empower others
Who may have been born without our good fortune
Believe in this indestructible love
Unconditional love that radiates
Even within the exploding skies
Crying tears of bloody rain
Even within the the bombs in hearts
The bombs in hands
The fear in lives
This love will overcome
We will find you
And we will love you
And we will show you
And the world
That anything
Is absolutely possible

The Breath
Of Freedom

Fill those lungs
With strength
With courage
With glorious guidance
Of universal mystery
For it is the power of life
The breath of freedom
For your voice can sing
To change the world
