And Then


Pummelled
by our own resistance
the turbulence
of change
can leave us
bruised..

let go
let go
let go

let all things happen
and then..

gently flow.

Centrifuge


I’ve tumbled through
my centrifuge again..

you know the one..

that separates
good from bad;
bad from good..

if only I could
remember
the code
to unload..

the debris..

It’s Alright


Stop
enjoying the pain..

feeding
this
shadow..

blocking
the light..

let your
ethereal beauty
shine..

it’s all fine

it’s alright..
it’s alright.

The Undoing


Wake up
to..

the phoney
altruism;
the schisms..

the do’s – the don’ts;

the lying
by omission..

the blame – game
shaming
control..

the taming
of our
screaming

souls.

Why


I don’t know
why..

birds migrate
and rivers run
dry..

why fate unfolds
like a story
told..

of rising high;
falling
low

rising high..

I don’t know
why.

Solace


Light
fades;
hidden
from view..

this world’s
parade
of pain
keeps passing
through..

can
we find
some lasting
solace
here..

and start
anew.
