Time was I believed you believed me.. thinking you knew me heart and mind.. knew prize externalized acted in display.. hope will know love true cannot be blind..
Something deep and blue when just in high school.. races run between image and sound.. radios with legs pulsing color.. television perfect sky to ground..
Last week when my memory brought us story.. something bout how kindness stood and said.. survival is foundation for your glory.. painted story folks sensed as they bled..
Going home a gnome snuck cobblestone in my boot.. as we spoke of social times that night.. saw you patronize leaving me alone.. quiet anger.. never have to fight..
Second later felt senseless direction.. angry path a lesson bound in sense.. love.. social support.. bedroom erections.. karma strong shows in love’s recompense..
Inside love strong is good purpose.. years together honor and love ring.. never trip on one another.. always with a smile.. today is love.. today is when we sing..
Thought.. ‘yes.. as our species.. rather new to building society.. slow to repair found mistakes and fearing change in prideful stubbornness.. defer to greed and fear.. time and again.. transferring responsibility to fairy tales.. justifying bad decisions at just about any cost..
in our world.. our ‘Eden’.. every time is the first time.. our ten thousand or so years of historical content.. stands small when compared to the billions of years survived before..
simple?.. sure.. however I ask.. do our ‘social rules’.. address who we are or what we want?.. think we need?.. ‘Mother Nature’ by any name has me bowing in respect to her the ‘ultimate artist’.. as I.. humble as my skills will employ humble.. think we as species are doing okay..
I see blame a potential extortion many times blocking truth.. bravery.. and ultimately trust.. accepting that creature in the mirror.. approving of what it does.. and why.. brings one necessarily to themselves.. their beauty.. shined and sparkling.. realizing their own unique self.. to share peacefully..
