Countless Skies

Posted: September 30, 2011 in Music, Uncategorized

Countless times below me
Rivers rose and fell

Ageless stones eroding out
Across the endless swell

Songs to pave the seasons
Wounds to follow birth
Cries to carry through the night
Wombs to feed the earth

Countless skies above me
Each unlike the next
Lines of more than moon and sun
Glimpses of a text

Countless hands have sought me
Reaching out in vain
Permanence observes without
Compassion or disdain

Flames to greet the harvest
Storms to face in awe
Winds to weave through every wood
Walls to dull the road

Purpose lost to frailty
Craning blades of grass
Strength and weakness on and on
All that is will pass

Countless hands have sought me
Reaching out in vain
Permanence observes without
Compassion or disdain

Flames to greet the harvest
Storms to face in awe
Winds to weave through every wood
Walls to dull the road

Countless waves around me
Strong until the last
Leaning into dimming dreams
All that was has passed

center

wandering to the center of the universe, stars drift by like leaves in the wind
observing beautiful chaos, in an orchestrated disaster,
destructive intentions with constructive results, the creation of a masterpiece
hidden in the deep, masked inside of nothing, right before your eyes, yet unseen to all
swirling into forever, bringing me infinity, and always inches out of reach
out stretched arms will tremble, the clueless with follow and take their place
fitting together like pieces of the puzzle, without effort and only by chance

unfinished

with the sun at my back, and my reflection ahead
i stare into my eyes and question these days…

is there such a thing as truth and honor…and if so, to what does a world of thieves give this value?
if true lives were worn as a sleeve, with you would i confide?
with a glance of lies on your shoulders, and deceit in your back,
should i listen to your words, without turning away?
and as if turn to leave, would the shame and pain be enough to force a change?

when all is said and done, does this heart have worth?
do we stand in our place of honor to any reprieve?

being

Posted: March 8, 2011 in Brainal Leakage

i try to be, but there is nothing inside
killing, feeling, healing
as suns will rise, this fire will burn

i reach to find, but feel this heart unkind
grinding, binding, finding
as leaves will fall, this face will turn

i turn to look, but see this reflection not mine
fleeing, seeing, being
as stars will shine, this soul will yearn

i walk through this door that i find
leaving, grieving, believing
as minutes will pass, this man will return

a man not knowing

Posted: February 16, 2011 in Brainal Leakage



in this life we all have our place, in this place we have our purpose,and in this purpose we find our home- but to find this place, comes a long journey where we must gain the will.

and on this journey we have our experiences, and in these experiences we gain skills, and with these skills we find our ability to make this journey – but to get our  experiences for this journey, comes many lessons to learn and much pain to endure

and to come upon these lessons and to feel this pain, we must come with curiosity and courage -but to know that you must take this course, is fates choosing…?

a man not knowing, will encounter his pain, and learn his lesson, with much struggle and tears.
quickly he moves on.

a man with new knowledge will encounter his challenges and fail, face his fears and cower.
yet he moves on.

a man with new wisdom will learn the path to his home, and endure the journey with weary feet, for days on end.
determined he moves on.

a man with nothing left, will reach his home with nothing more to gain, but knowing he is at home, with a lifetime to give. and that is his purpose…and he is fulfilled.
and there he stays.

piece of mind

Posted: February 15, 2011 in Brainal Leakage

while some waves may still ripple, and uncertainty still remains
the waters may yet rise, as black skies still threaten rains

but from here things are clearing, the sun breaks through
storms move off into the distance, the clouds no longer block my view

that which seemed to be taken, and drifting out of reach
has returned with sanity, and brings new wisdom to speech

with it come the comforts, inspiration and strength, to lead
the confidence  and courage, when faced with adversity, i need

no longer the panicked grasping, at a skillfully painted mirage
no more is the fear to cross the dangling bridge, or to scale the crumbling walls

for within every struggle, a valuable message is given
and i am reminded of who i am, in this life that i live in

in retrospect, you see, the storm was real and the war was true
but the enemy was not… i now know, ‘this battle is within you

that which was my anchor, was never the disturbing force
all this time, moving away, it was i who had drifted off course

with every accusation that this life was pushing me astray
truth is, it has always been me, who was just wandering away

only as winds were changing  and the currents had shifted
did i see, i could get closer, the less that i resisted

as days passed and nights went by, with many a helping hand
stability was returning, and rock replaced the shifting sand

so now with renewed spirit of an unmatched kind
i come back to my true place, i got home just in time

returning from this unforgettable journey, to find a piece of mine
i retake my position with determination, pride and peace of mind

+LOVE+

Posted: February 13, 2011 in Music

Just live in love.
Believe in love.

In my life I have seen all the ways that man destroys mankind.
Break society’s system, chase the mercy, there’s no compromise.

Through all this condescend compassion for weakness,
It takes so much more strength to be selfless and live in love.
Strive to live in selflessness, and live in love.
Through all your days, just live in love.
Through all your pain, believe in love.

Love.

All that you think you know; it’s just a fraction of this world,
Take the time to think about your life.
Live righteous.
Strive to live in selflessness, and live in love.
Through all your days, just live in love.
Through all your pain, believe in love.

The words we speak, the ones we don’t say.
Power you don’t know you can sing.
Through all our days, believe in love.

Don’t you see we are all.
Don’t you see we are all the blood brothers and sisters.
We are blood brothers and sisters.
We are one.
We are one.

And I pray this is not in vain!
All that you know about, all you can hide,
All that you feel inside (Live in love).
All that you know about, all you can hide,
All that you feel inside (Live in love).
Through all our days, Live in love.
Through all our pain, Believe in love.

Times of Grace
