Stepping Back From the Chaos (Poem)

In the quiet of the night, 

Where everything is still, 

And dark 

Behind the misty sky,

The world shuts down, 

Stops, 

And dreams, 

Looks so real 

As we ponder 

The night time visions

Of above, 

Giving us glimpses 

Of our daily thoughts

As we contemplate, 

Breathe,

And Rejuvenate.

 

When we get up, 

Like the quiet of the night,

Solitude Needed At Times (Poem)

Solitude is my friend,

My place of zen

Where I enter

When frustrated 

Indecisive 

Or angry.

I look within,

The only power 

I’ll ever have 

To change within 

So I can change 

The course.

When I enter within 

I can conquer mountains 

In front of me.

And I can enter the world, 

And be happy and at peace, 

Despite the chaotic world 

Of our nation.

Face Life the Real Way (Poem)

He came into this life,

 

With atrocities of every kind,

 

As all he wanted was a life

 

Free of trouble 

 

And heartache.

 

As he was looking for freedom, 

 

And inner peace,

 

He was bound by beatings, 

 

inferiority 

 

And abuse. 

 

He then reverted to alcohol, 

 

All day and all night,

 

As he was looking for stillness,

The Swim to Victory (Poem)

As I swim in the deep cold blue,

Beneath remains squids, sharks, stingrays

And 30 feet deep. 

I stay focused on the sandy shore,

About 500 meters away, 

As the current comes sweeping my way,

I gasp for air, 

In these 10 feet waves,

From the shoreline grace,

Completely focused on my destiny,

Completely focused on my victory,

I’ve pulled through in my mind,

Harmoniously With the Divine (Poem)

The more I separated from the divine,

I was clouded by the misty wall.

The misty wall was all I could see,

Without your lenses through the deep.

The more I pursue despite the lies,

I can see you and me harmoniously. 

As long as you’re here with me,

There’s nothing and nowhere I cannot be.

And as long as you’re here with me,

Overcoming and Thriving (Poem)

Without mountains to shake us deep,

We are merely sheep wondering in the field, 

Merely existing but not living, 

On flat ground as we wonder around. 

No opportunities to strive for,

No burning desire to reach for,

No journey, 

Merely existing, wondering around,

With no desire to strive for.

We condemn what unfolds the journey,

And condemn what creates triumph,

Seeing Past the Misty Fog (Poem)

As I pull through in the misty fog,

Everywhere is blurry 

But the forefront. 

I put my backpack on my back,

I open it, 

Let the trash drop. 

One by one 

The trash drops, 

As I steadily gaze at the forefront,

Fully immersed on this present moment, 

To bring me all I love and need, 

Fully immersed on this present moment, 

To unfold my path and destiny.

Needy for Love (Poem)

Stacey was a kind hearted soul,

 

Wanting to make her mark in the world.

 

Happy and seemingly carefree,

 

Perky and everyone adored her.

 

Though she was upbeat at first, 

 

She craved attention 

 

And affection,

 

So much that it became her only obsession. 

 

Her dad was a drunk,

 

Would get home from work, 

 

Drink all night long.

Future Changes With Perspective (Poem)

I look at you, from a distance saying,

How will you unfold from this distant smile?

Will you live in the moment, as the Buddhists do? 

Will you embrace the moment, 

Be you, and chase your dreams? 

Will you press pause, 

Stand still, despite the pain? 

The moment I choose, 

The future changes,

And the moment I choose, 

From a state 

Of grace, 

The future changes....

I Forgive You Because (Poem)

I forgive you because, 

Holding on to hurts of the past 

Is being shackled to the ground

With no escape 

But the sound of your voice belittling,

With your sarcastic remarks.

 

I forgive you because,

If I don’t,

I will sleep walk my whole life,

Never getting anywhere 

But listening to your voice

Condescending and obstructive.

Searching From the Core (Poem)

We’re always searching for more,   

Through the highs or lows,

We have a burning desire, 

To feel more 

Inside our soul.

 

Life is a series 

Of seasons, 

To discover ourselves anew,

In a process of love, opposites and desire.

 

We all seek expansion,

To escape the boredom and latent,

In the upbeat, chaotic world of our nation.

Despair Made Me Stronger (Poem)

My deepest moments of despair, 

 

Brought about my strength,

 

And perseverance and faith.

 

The moments I so wanted an escape, 

 

Were the moments I prayed and praised

The moments of despair   

 

Reconciled me into appreciation.

 

It’s what pushed me to be grateful,

Love is a Compass (Poem)

Love is a compass,

Though we may not know it,

 

Every loved one brings us closer,

True Love is Inevitable (Poem)

True love is inevitable, 

 

Like a magnet 

 

That never ceases to attract.

 

Like a roller coaster ride, 

 

That never ceases to die.

 

A true connection,

 

More than lust,

 

A reunion with a soul,

 

That we need for expansion as a whole. 

 

A reunion that never ceases to exist, 

 

As they imprint their name in our heart,

Seasons Changing (Poem)

Every season,

 

Brings its own mission, 

 

To pursue 

 

An unending trail,

 

With mountains, 

 

And fields, 

 

And open space.

 

Weaving and turning,

 

As we find our compass  

 

To carve the way.

 

Pushing through uncertainties,

 

And doubts,

 

As we feel our fears 

 

And declare our wants,

 

And don’t give in.

He looked into her dying eyes,

 

And saw the dreadful anguish

While death is staring face to face.

Why does it have to be this way?

 

What’s the point of all of this?

 

In a state of disarray, 

 

From watching his loved one

True Meaning of Courage (Poem)

The most courageous of them all

 

Is the one

 

Who declares his faith, 

 

Despite appearance 

 

Contradicting his faith. 

 

The one who perseveres, 

 

Despite reality pushing him down.   

 

He seeks compassion, 

 

Despite the cruelty 

 

Imprinted in the world.

Seeking Yourself First (Poem)

I met a girl,

 

Confused and afraid, 

 

She had insecurities of her own,

 

The most beautiful woman I met,

 

Yet she couldn’t see it herself,

 

So she went looking elsewhere.

 

She was always looking for love,

 

In all the wrong places, 

 

Thought she would meet a man,

 

Then all would fall into place.

One man had it all,

Love irreplaceable,

As if it wasn’t enough,

 

Always looking for excitement and fun.

 

Temptation and lust kept on creeping his way.

 

As he was confused

Fearlessly Face the Unknown (Poem)

There’s a whole world and vision in front of me now.

 

Behind remains status quo, and chains keeping me down.

 

Shall I dance with what lies in front of me now,

 

Or look up to the sky and depart.

 

Exhilaration is calling me, 

 

From a stand of nothing

 

But my father’s hand.

A journey through the mist and sand.

A new world of different facets.
