Smiles, humor, sarcasm
Numbing facade
Looking up, looking in
Masking, masking the pain

Each day
Promise made
‘I’m OK’
“I AM OK”!

Each night, defeated
Demons crawling
Raging discontent
Useless numbing

Hard to swallow
Impossible to cry
Heartbeat imploding
Mind hurtling

Tools employees
Moments of relief
Comfort appreciated
Gratitude known

Yet recycled
Each day the climb
Survival unknown
Too hard to keep letting go

So in need of sharing
Just a little kindness
Just a little care
Making the infinite difference

Holding close
My worthiness
Confronting the change
Keeping light in sight

The seeds well sown
The need too great
Incremental changes
Alls in motion

Grasping at any strand
Any tendril of hope
Blowing my way
In the wind of life

The task at hand
Seems so huge
Yet greater still
Is Divine’s own call

The course is steep
Summit hard to reach
But I will,  without a doubt
Just so long, as I keep it all in sight

Destiny, Fate and Luck

The scientist believes,
And serves to prove
“Cause and effect”
Every action has a reaction.
Your reality is direct
Causal effect in form…

The philosopher thinks,
And serves to explain,
You are not what you see
Nothing is what is appears
So search and debate….

The artist creates,
And serves to stimulate
Pushing you out of your box,
Sometimes with delight
Sometimes with a certain discomfort…

So who tells you
And serves to show you
You are you,
Complete, fortunate and free!!

Who guides you to you,
The depths of your comfort
Finding serenity and your home?

How beautiful then
When Destiny is where you are
Fate is your privileged existence
And Luck is your acknowledgement…

So be sure to hold supreme
That which guides and ushers,
You to You….
