What’s that skin you’re in


We live in a body and confuse ourselves with it.

The body is a body when nothing is in it.

Its made of clay or at least that’s what they say,

but the essence inside it most certainly isn’t.

We forget what we’re made of,

not a singular thing.

Our body is a skin suit we wear like our bling.

The soul that occupies this body we live in,

is immortal and loving though we often forget it.

Be nice to your body we can’t yet change sleeves,

but cooperate with it and then do as you please.

This body has a once in a lifetime use,

so use it well there is no excuse.

 

 

 

declaration


images-2.jpg

let’s make a declaration

let’s make a clarion call

let’s choose to listen to our voice

our wisdom great as their’s all

we each were born with power

it’s ours to use or lose

but why give away your birthright

why let someone else choose

so I stand on the side of the righteous

to lift their voices high

to stop the madness of those who guide us

away from our kingdom in the sky

so make your declaration

let your word become as gold

let it be your aspiration

go on just be bold!

 

 

 

the noise in your head

Noise

there is too much noise and nothing is being said

you see the tongue wag but hear nothing instead

our ears are bombarded with a constant stream

but the stream is not clear its filled with dread

try to be alone for just one little minute

and the noise will likely drive you to drink

you call it silence and hates its sound

but you wouldn’t know silence if it was the only gig in town

most of the noise comes from your head

thinking of this or that or something that is dead

a thought a dream a well wish or two

that noise is your disappointments raining down on you

we think we know truth for ourselves at least

problem is we don’t we just believe as we please

we believe we are victims or victors over “them”

we are no different actually we are “them”

our power lies in truth no, not yours the actual truth

the way to truth is to dim the noise

discern for yourself through that destructive voice

you are not bad, or worthless, or worse

you are a radio with your station stuck on morose

it seems simple to say just change your mind

but it will change that station that makes you blind

clear the stream that bombards your head

listen to a joyful station instead

you are fine take it from me

really, we are all fine

just wait and see

Sunday

Make Sunday a funday especially if it snows

for a Sunday that is a snow day isn’t a funday you know

its a make for cover day

a where is my coat day

why yesterday was a sunny day,

what happened to today?

so rather than a sad day made wet by bossy snow

make it a funday by exploring parts unknown day

read a book day

see a film day

go look at painting up close day,

sit with your kids day

listen to your partner day

look up say thanks and pray

tomorrow maybe a sunny day

there’s always hope for another day

 

Love Love Love

Oh Saint Valentine pack up your bags and go

love isn’t just one day you know

to the fake lovers and the sellers of wares

that day marked for love will always be theirs

but for those who carry the forces of light

they rule with a different kind of a might

for them it is each day that is filled with delight

for true love is forceful when its used right

I love you now and I’ll love you then

there’s nothing you can do to make it end

I love you today and again tomorrow

your heart’s not a play thing and cannot be borrowed

So I’ll stand by the gate and send St Valentine away

what you need is real love that kind that does stay

Awaken beloved

Awaken beloved and hear my voice

there is more to this world than you know

Awaken beloved and open your eyes

there is much more to see than this

Awaken beloved and tune your ears

there is much to hear beyond the sound of crying

Awaken beloved and lift your heart

There is so much love so feed your soul

Awaken beloved and reach out your arms

there is much freedom in releasing your grasp

Awaken beloved to all that you are

there will be no more fear just the awakening of awe

Awaken beloved

Awake
