You can

every day is a test
every life has its challenges
when you have come back to a
set of circumstances that you recognize
you can have belief that you will perservere
because you have learned much since
you have been here before
and the road is not the only thing that
has been run over before
you have strength even if you do not feel it sometimes
you have abilities even if you do not feel like it
find your best way to recharge your battery
and never forget
you are the connection to the energy flow
and always remember
there are people you inspire
even if you do not know it
and the tallest tree in the forest may be power
yet was once a tiny seed

Deep stories

during the night, the world had

ended our comfort level, and when our

easy life finished dying we had

placed far too much trust in the

empty midnights that every house

remembers when waking up to,

some days remind you how much

the night is where you prefer,

on those occasions you ponder the sorrow of

realizations you have never gotten over, confused

instances of a far more innocent year,

evade the crushing desire to

stay far away once you go on vacation,

numbers never have as big an impact as lessons,

organisms of every sort learn instincts;

when will humans learn thier consequences?

Insistences

after the “once upon a time” you dreamt
up while we were or weren’t here again
but now onto a mountain you grow slow groove like
maybe you knew you were or weren’t supposed to
be coming
over the times listed the person and where they
were meant to go and be
whenever a modern likeness has
shown you whereupon the elevator was and
“only” was a word we endured as well as “should”
on the roof in the basement or out by a park
not a single time we went out and i doubt you
of an often leaning tower of
meaning to be there or a
should have, could have, would have
type of late night free style
that gets there
but then
beware, beware, beware

Having agreements…

hope is a friend not everybody knows
after all that has happened to the
vital corners of a heart so bruised
impatient to reach out to a time so crushing
near the end of the bridge
getting a sign that the flames are right behind
as people rise up to fight for what is right
gears grind in the machines behind the scenes
rolling cogs now see more than they did before
even the forests are a place we cannot hide anymore
every place you thought you could escape to is in danger
move the drive to get things done to right up front
effort counts for a lot when
nobody can predict you
take a moment to be thankful then
stomp that negativity into the ground

Shadows

sure would be as unusual as
possible to have recieved
the kind of treatment
that happened and when you ask
that the ones close to you
have been able to be there for you
but in an unusual fashion
the way that they disappeared
was only so far from what was
you were always told should happen
and if
you can heal
but the hurt
the pain
the feel
the fight
and a wonder
a worry
and i do not want to die
unless i am in a place that
does not even know where i am
coming from
or my name

Deep currents

a place of peace, a shot in the dark

bleeding and breeding, plotting, supplied not denied

who you are is the person waiting calmly in the world

of those who see the country change and make no mistake about it

such are the city dwellers and the country fellers

telling time by those who make a day so long

as if sleep were an unwanted commodity

as the priests play on

in their happy and guilt laden song

and the circles go round and round

as if we played in a similar tone

if not the same

orchestra

                      ..

Advance

taking the moment
over the trees the small lights
like dots of shining revolutions in the sky
because a lesson has to be learned
there are people who dig for years to work and
find the one piece that many answer the question
and show them the path to thier learning
in whatever it is they finally uncover
and there are people who look
through tubes of glass and metal and calculations
to find out about the past that was
a group of energies that are no longer living
but still reach out and get a teachable experience
down to the opening eyes of a few who search
and all of them are doing what you need to do
by exploring the illuminations that your own past
can reveal to you if you can just be open to
the understanding of your own buried or far away
incredible personal nature
then you shall find exploring yourself
is the wisdom and lesson to guide you best,
take heart in the fact that if they can do it so can you

Okay, so, listen.

Life will give you roadblocks.

And there will always be side trails.

And shortcuts.

But always remember that you knew where you wanted to be when you started this path you are on.

That you choose and have chosen.

Please please please do not forget,

you are uniquely you and made your peace with yourself when you began this direction.

Do your thing

Make your dance.

You know who you are.

Distraction

facing the way that i know it should be
inside this decision that you made
needing rest and relaxation to continue
during a night which can decide everything
including final choices of the beginning of this year
nevermind what wishes you have brought out
getting out those words which have boiled inside you
definitely time to have this fiesty conversation
incredibly quiet and full of fire as you become
show the feeling which you have anticipated
through a wait which showers the mind with questions
ready for whatever revalation you will show me
after this month all the query time can
come back strong and bring along some friends
timing is important when the walls of heat are crumbling
i am not sure what the news will be
out of patience and not wanting to stay but
needed desire to be inquiring in a slow fashion
so i will do anything as long as you are happy

Impacting us

if it was last year at
this time exactly then all of the
ingredients which led up to this
moment would be the mudslide that
people never saw coming
and this was as far as the
campers knew after it was
taking too long to be the kitten day
information that helps you
not keep up with the times that
getting to know you even knew
unless we just keep together and at that point
some of the best times of our life lie ahead
