Refuse! Resist!

refuse to accept violence as a viable solution to any problem!
refuse to accept hatred as an acceptable response to anything!
refuse to let terror strike fear into my heart!
refuse to let hatred into my heart!
refuse to let my love and compassion be drowned in blood!
refuse to give up any more freedom under the disguise of security!
resist temptation to follow their lead, to follow their ways!
resist to follow the crowd into revenge!
resist temptation to fuel the hate!
resist to follow into violence for it will foster nothing more!
I know I can do better, and I know, so can you!
Should you choose to!

Random Encounters

Just a smile, was where it began,
another random encounter,
unlike the majority, running deeper,
feeling strangely close and comfortable
was it just a figment of my imagination?

a kiss, up high in the night sky,
a million lights, and even the full moon
outshone by your glow, the light in your eyes
shot up high into the sky,
the moment where gravity is unreal;
feeling free with the desert wind,
ephemeral moments in time;
memories to be cherished

so surreal, and strangely real
when time spent is too short,
when there is a million things to say, to ask and take in;
and yet nothing has to be said or done,
random encounters that touch the soul
can they ever last long enough?
and how random are they really?

Worth remembering?

3:30 am, as the birds start to sing,
madness is still in full swing
letting it out, breathing it in.
what words are worth remembering?
most likely all those that we forget

time and space are crumbling on each other
circles with no ends, and no bridges to get over the gaps
deep black holes, drawing us in
where have we gone, the you and I
we knew
or are they still here with us?
spinning in our graves ?

madness in full swing,
whirling like the wind
already overstimulated, aren’t we ?
pushing to keep habits alive!
there is no more
room for error
cause we already fucked it up so many times!

what words are worth remembering?
probably those that we forget!

Run on down,
you have to break lose!
cut all your ties,
every now and then.
Stay in your flow;
stay the one you chose,
find the balance between the two.
it’s not too soon, and not too late.

Come on, run on down,
you have to break lose!
let go of all your ego,
go back to when
you still had your glow;
bring it back with you,
here and now in the blue

It’s your choice to remember and move, move as you, run on!

the grip

You cast no shadow,
the darkness in you
is not your own.

You have your own,
held captive by someone or something
who’s hiding inside of you

Can you break their grip and
cast your own
shadow and light of only your own

That’s the beauty of your soul
your own yin and yang
complete in your own

Can you break the grip
of whatever is feeding on your soul
cast your own shadow in your own light!

Fit in?

Do you want an ordinary life?
Do you envy those that don’t see past what their eyes perceive?

How can you crave so badly just to fit in?
How can you aim to be but an average John Doe?

When there is so much magic in your soul!
Is it the old craving for what you haven’t got?

Don’t you want to push the envelope?
Don’t you want to embrace the magic all the way ?

Same Shit? Please ??!?!!??

Please give them the same over and over;
please shove it down their throat
that’s the way they seem to like it.

Please repeat the same shit all the time,
please stay ordinary and in line
that’s what gets them going.

Are they really only pleased
by the mundane comfort of the known?
Please set them free!
Please let them open their mind!
Please let them appreciate something new!

Lost Love - Love Lost

Finding you in this mad world,
let me step into heaven on earth.
You just blew my mind,
until I found myself shackled to the ground

If you love me, leave me
so we can be one freely!
Oh if you love me, leave me;
as I leave you,
free to be with(out) me

Obligations became the order of the day.
and where did our fire go?
Ashes turned to diamond bars
holding my mind caged like an animal.
Or was it just me, blinded by the fury that was your love?

If you love me, leave me
so we can be one freely!
Oh if you love me, leave me;
as I leave you,
free to be with(out) me

You let me, past the gates,
let me into your heaven!
why oh why did I end up behind bars
harder than steel, yet subtle like the wind;
when you knew I long to run freely
right beside you.

If you love me, leave me
so we can be one freely!
Oh if you love me, leave me; as
I leave you, free to be with(out) me

Force of Habit

Circling and cycling ideas in my head,
but life confronts me, over and over with the same challenges.
I wonder:
Am I in charge through;
or am I a victim of:

Force of habit,
forced by my habits?
forced liked the sea by the moons gravity;
first I’m pulled in,
and then I push back out

They say a good mule hits the same wall but once!
but what if this time the wall breaks?
Just like me, keeping up my habits coaxed by desire,
going for a different end.

Force of habit,
forced by my habits ?
forced like the leaves blowing in the wind;
first I’m flying,
and then miserably I end

Or is it just my nature?
and what if things turned out different, just this once!
and what if, though unknown to me the only thing to set me free is ….

(true love)

these eyes,
can they lie?
all they want to?

the tower of self-destructive
the ego's become
master in command

absolute it wants to be
forever alive
it cries
at the sight of its own demise

fed upon lies
until natural death
or the self-initiation of the warrior
resolves it

giving in, letting go,
know there is nothing to loose!
