Day 10: The Journey

Footfalls as questions

Destinations as answers

Pitfalls of chance, traps of desire

Attacks upon fires we tend.

Lessons we learn in the way.

A path all must tread

It goes on without end.

Seldom we know where it leads

Solutions to be found in just being.

Drifting among all the levels

Embracing the core of ourselves.

For surely as we fit into roles,

Square pegs will be found in round holes.

Relationships ebb and flow

Surely as water does go

Casualties in love, reflections of heart

Life’s intricate dance

The story of romance.

So be in love with the world,

Ride with banner unfurled.

And always remember the roses.

The Eye That Sees Most, Speaks Least

seated on mountains

where wildly they did play

only ghosts remain

unearthed by moments

lost in time’s rushing current,

sharpened edges fade

standing silently

witnessing the light within

breath catches in awe

dimensions sliding

collapsing into realness

of observation

shifting perspective

infinite in mirror flow

along streaming life

staring into voids

opened in mind’s eye

is blindness overcome

elusive as life,

poetic satisfaction

attained in pure words

Where Blows the Wind

winter wind whistles

blowing snow into grey boughs

swaying in the dark

undecided fate

offered by warring factions

calling her nightly

black moon setting

slowly guided by the sun

revealing night

often i wander

wondering among shadows

whither lay the mind

labyrinthine paths

set by demons eagerly

devouring peace

contemplating now

life unbound from destiny

jubilant seizure

loftily rising

aspirations of freedom

fed on sacrifice

An Experiment

Going to try out a new concept here that I’ve been wanting to pursue. Basically just taking beats that move me &  putting up some verse to go along with it. Ill throw in the time signatures so you can get an idea of the cadence. This first one goes at a bit of a machine gun pace, which well matches my mood this evening. Cheers

:11

why can’t it be seen,

in pure liquid stream?

I’m just blowin steam

in the rhyming scheme.

too much time for pain

not enough for change.

living life so fast you,

know this ish won’t last.

it’s time to break on free

it’s time to live that dream

i know that there is  more,  ’cause I’ve seen it be

we gotta live in love

we’ll  fly in skies above

beyond the face of things

damn it  all just makes me scream

all the waste, all the hate

gotta change, let’s elevate,

the mind, free yourself from time

before your ass end up in pine

find your song & let it shine

never let them say its crime

got so high i lost my mind

better that than lost to cash

i know at least that i will last

the beast is cash

the beast is cash

i will outlast

:46

1:01

never cared ’bout the rat race

always gone by my own pace

wouldn’t you just love a taste?

I’m beasting kings  just call me ace,

building scenes, a whole new place

it’s here inside, called outer space

once you’re there it feels so great

the magic clear , don’t hesitate

we all are god so lets create

before time runs out &  its too late.

the greedy pigs cant shake us down

we’ll drown em in the clouds of loud

then go in for the triple crown

1:20

love light & peace, freedom released

ain’t y’all sick of being sheep

trapped in pens, so dead asleep?

so come on now, uplift those brows,

open eyes, and stand up proud

the time is now so stand your ground

’cause when it happens, some gon drown

but some gon float, so be up on that boat

stack the bricks, do your part

1:40

show em your heart, live life art,

live life art

make your mark

through the dark

live life art

Our Place

Our place in the sun, never-ending fun,

Once the work has been done, its time to .

Things that we’ve won, games just begun.

The prize is a piece, smothered in grease,

That came from above, covered in love,

I’ll walk with you now, no lazy ass cow, 

Don’t ever dare frown, we’re happy as clowns.

Forever unwound, freed dogs from the pound.

As earth spins around, my feet hit the ground.

i’m moving at pace, covering space,

Never seen by the world, my banner unfurled.

We came seeking peace, we come for release. 

As time ticks on by, I dream of your thigh,

Covered in night, always in flight,

Not running away, I’m here to stay,

Not ever betrayed, or we’re lost in the maze. 

I know it seems crae, the stops in the way.

The road made for travel, lest we unravel.

I love you the most, that’s no idle boast.
