I Will Not Be
Chased Into The
Hourglass

Those days have left me behind
I told them to run
Run as fast as they can
I will not follow
I will not be chased into the hourglass
Trapped by seconds so fast
That race to find a future
Race to the edge of a cliff
Overlooking an endless valley
Of unknowns
While the very thought
Of pausing creates a tidal wave
Of anxious wonder
Of questioning why I’m here
And what I do
And who I am
I will not have the past
Laugh in my face
I chose this space
I love what we create
And I choose to live here
Right here
Right now
With our hot wet breath
And salty oceans of eyes
That see more than the disguises
More than costumes that cover creation
That cover the foundation
Of the moments in time
That mean everything
The moments in time
Frozen by the acknowledgment
That this single breath
Right here
Right now
Is so special

Beautiful Powers

Such beauty in the battles
Such power in the process
Trust yourself

Waiting For Something
To Change Changes
Nothing

Restless awakenings
Frightening realizations
Of how very little we have traveled
And how very far we are
Still
From where we want to be
Ironic smiles longing for restoration
A new destination
A new consolation prize
Hours and hours searching for an answer
Anxious flapping on internet and tv screens
Worthless emotions wasted on stories that do not inspire you
This cannot go on forever
Not if we want to make waves in this silent solid state of matter
Waiting
Waiting for a hero
Waiting for a discovery
To be discovered
For unanswered questions and answers uncovered
To cover you like rain
Taking away all the insane thoughts and curiosities
That might actually make a difference
If you followed them through
Everything is nothing
Nothing will not come to you
That is one thing that will never change
But everything will change eventually
If I cannot move a mountain
I will still try to move stars
Cause that’s how hard
How very hard
I believe in you
But I believe
It is time to change

Focus On
The Glow

Just know there is a glow
A glow alive inside the darkest caves
Of heart chambers
A glow alive and leading you
Guiding the way
Across massive waves
Trying to turn you over
A glow that knows the real you
Knows all the places
You go in your mind
And wants to show you
How divine you are
Wants to remind you
You are never lost
You are on a journey
And that is where all the fun is
Focus on the glow

We Can Only
Laugh At These
Indecisions

We can only laugh at these indecisions
This bowling ball in one hand
As we jump into the sea
It pulls us down
And all we have to do
Is let it go to survive
Why do we hold on for life
To the one thing holding us back
We can only laugh at these indecisions
The balloon in the other hand
Could lift us high out of the waters
From where we cannot see
To where we could float freely
And soar
Why don’t we follow the one thing
We know could be our hacking
Of reality
We can only laugh at these indecisions
In an effort to keep it light
Despite we are drowning
We can can only laugh at these indecisions
For to not to decide
Is to decide
Is to keep both hands full
And the bowling ball will always win
Over the weight of the balloon
We can only laugh at these indecisions
In an effort to keep it light
While we drown drown drown
We can only laugh at these indecisions
Or no
We can decide
I choose balloon

High Above The
Downpour

Trying to catch your breath
When the very thought
Drenches you in a suffocating
Downpour
Sooo
Swallow it
Down your throat
Let it go
And look to the sky
Or into someones eyes
Or drive to the mountains
Run naked through the trees
To free thyself
From that thought
Fill with new sensations
That lead to new thoughts
Launching new desires
And best of all
New emotions
Where you are not suffocating
Not drowning
But flying
And gliding
High
High
High
Above the downpour

No Matter What
Happens

I have no expectations
Only control of how I want to feel
So no matter what happens
I know I will have a great time

Patterns Of
Patterns

Patterns of patterns
Do you see yourself
In the maze
Baby you are not crazy
You are just trapped
In patterns of patterns
There is a way out
The walls of the maze
Can be melted away
Once you see them
For what they are
Once consciousness
Takes control
You can challenge
The patterns
You can change
The patterns
You can break the walls
Break out from the haze
Of the maze
And be free

Unplug

Let’s go inside us
Let’s turn everything around
Turn everything off
And turn ourselves on
Let’s turn off the clutter
The lights glowing in hands
From gadgets we love
And just set them aside
Let’s go inside you
Show me what is in there
What you fear
What you care for
What you dream
What you dare for
Show me who you are
Behind that computer face

The Only Dimension
Of Time We Can Truly
Appreciate

Catastrophic tremblings
Energetic waves as destructive as corruption
Demanding our attention
Our condolences
Our hearts
The pendulum will rule
No democracy no president
Unless you are awake like a projectionist
When disaster strikes
People die
It is truth of life
I look at the conflicting chickens
With no heads and thus no brains
I feel no pain
The suffering drips of rain
Sweetly cover my wounds
And my gratitude swells like the scar that will not heal
Pulsing with the life inside
Like the burn that keeps you up at night
Galvanized into the only dimension of time we can truly appreciate
To truly appreciate our life
This time
This moment
This very breath
