Abandon the past

abandon the past
leave it behind
just where it belongs
for the future
hold opportunity
if your path is clear

In Harmony

we floated on wings of sound
moved with it, fed our souls
in harmony

Fuel

fuel your dreams with possibility
all it takes is imagination
and they can come to be

Thursday, July 28, 2016

What you will

the future is in the making
so dream big and bold
seek love
and the world with change

Crossing Paths

everything you want or don't want
lies ahead, waiting for you
to cross paths

Golden Days

Memories are for us to make
like the golden days of summer
treasures for years to come

Monday, July 25, 2016

Erased

we erase ourselves daily
lost lives, lost memories
dying by the breath
until we're no more

Surprises

If we let our days be filled with surprises
we just might surprise ourselves

Saturday, July 23, 2016

Look forward

Our youth passes away
that moment we let dreams die
leaving yesterday
all that we look forward to

Let me be

I was swimming, trying to decide
if I felt sick or great
whatever the case, I didn't care
I was slipping into the unknown
fearfully trying to hold myself back
to remain with my distraught companions
to ease their fatigue and fear
tension and disbelief was keeping them here
I was fading, arms clutching me
to seize the waning life
of an overdose
meant to set me free
oh, how I wish they'd let me be

Don't belong

the day will come
you'll feel it in your bones
that you don't belong here
that this is not your home

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Hang Around

Life is a balance of reality and dreams
destiny and fate hang upside down
leaving faith to get us through the day
while we figure out what it all means
so we stick around
until it fades away

When the smoke clears

By the light of day
when the smoke clears
we glimpse the future
and find our way

Waiting Room

You can sit in life's waiting room
but you may find yourself alone
as you wonder
what it is
you're
waiting
for

Tea Time

tea time for the soul
nourished in solitude
where all becomes whole

Building Bridges

Our differences a river
we can learn to bridge
given the desire
for peace
and
understanding

Youth

 The sounds of youth
follow us into obscurity
it's nothing to cause worry
it's just a fact, a fading truth
so plain to see
over in such a hurry

A better future

we must face ourselves one day
let's stop running away
let's discover who we are
and put a better future on the radar

Monday, July 11, 2016

Headed to shore

heartache headed to shore
lost love to explore
another parting, another end
before another begins


Sunday, July 10, 2016

Walk Away

the waters of yesterday
grow stagnant and murky
dying days of memory
and what we wanted to be
walk away and set yourself free

Discovery

Henry was dying to meet himself
somewhere between here and there
it was his destiny
the ultimate discovery
to become who he was meant to be

Where I roam

most were wiser than me
and took shelter before the storm
what chance it would find me
regardless of where I was
so keep the streets empty for me
just because
they're much easier to roam

Again and Again

It's the 82nd year of a century of discontent
destructive decade after destructive decade
into the cities we poured to live an industrialized life
no more rural chores, just two world wars
oh, what bloody fun, muddy trenches, boys with guns
and when all was said and done
no lesson learned, the future abandoned
to history repeat we're doomed
again and again
unless we take our love
and set ourselves free

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

More Love

a hush fell over the room
silently we stood, pondering
what future we wanted to build
perhaps the world could use
just a little more
love

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

traded away

funny how we celebrate freedom
we no longer really have
we traded it for safety
yet, we don't have that either


Monday, July 4, 2016

Show it

our companions pass through our lives so quickly
sharing precious moments just briefly
then they're gone before we know it
if you love them make sure you show it

Sunday, July 3, 2016

Life of ease

arm and arm the lonely stand
facing their future uncertain
smiles carried on the breeze
their's no life of ease

Saturday, July 2, 2016

Setting Sun

we journey from east to west
following our own setting sun
from the day our life began
until we're laid to rest
to become at one
as was planned

sans dreams

dreams don't always work out
the way we'd like
but imagine a world
without them
