Living in the present moment
attempting to lock mind’s door
I hear them entrap with their chatter
perceive them seduce and lure
“lets take a bus to the past”
“Leave me alone!” I respond
“I’m residing in the now…”

Notice how they tantalize you
detect them attempt as they dare
like pop corn in mind they explode
some leave but others come
“fly with us into the offing”
I discern, but just ignore!

Random narcissistic babble
seeking to abduct your mind
engaging you in useless gossip
steering you away from life
filling your head with deception

I discern, and just ignore!

In pain and suffering, we feel the lash of correction
At times we don't understand why?
We see others laugh and carry on.
Yet we only see outwardly, what they wish us to see,
but they too have gone,
or will eventually go through the refining fires.
None of us can escape the molding hands.

The more we go through the easier one
-can relate to other's suffering and pain.
Pain educates the spirit if open to change,
conserves us humble and compassionate.

It is such a gift to be able to express your deepest feelings.
This is a special world of poetry with many dear hearts,
it's an oasis that keeps us sane.  To be part of those who have
loving hearts unspoiled by the harshness of the world and those
who dwell in it,  it's truly a blessing from above.

For those of us who are constantly challenged in many ways,
I send you my sincere prayers and love.
May you always be at peace, no matter the storms.
That no illness, person, situation or abuse
-can ever separate us from His loving and saving grace.

Changing our circle is helpful in growth.
Most avoid the naked truth, but dress it up.
They tell us what we like to hear.
"There, there..., you are so wonderful..."  
"Why, thank you!, so are you!"
We resort to ego stroking
We fib and stretch veracity
therefore we stagnate.

Sometimes God or Life will push and kick us in the rear
specially if we're too comfortable,
that we may learn and realize.

These are not mine, but worth sharing.  If it's one of yours
I hope you don't mind me sharing it, thank you.

"Looking for the bad, while surrounded by the good."

"I can afford to lose a friend to our world's views.  Because
I only have a few of you."

"I'm living in all the worlds and I constantly have to put on
the right mask."

"Life is actually a lot easier than it seems to be, if you just get
the fuck out of the way."

Sent with love
Tango with love
Camouflaged by love
I escaped my cage
Not a soul on earth
can ever trick me
into going back
Regardless what
you tell me
I am free.
I never quite understand why people fear being loved!

You need the spot light, the fans, the applause
Smiles, shining and charming persona
To live your dream, smoke and mirrors
It was all good, till your mask dropped off

I can't deny it, I had fun while it lasted, I enjoyed the ride
But I can no longer be there, for I've downed the red pill
I need the brutal truth and reality, my freedom, my peace
For all the said, unsaid, for all I did or failed to do, I apologize
Is not that I didn't love you
It's that I woke up
Luz Hanaii Jul 11
Because my love was true, I could detect what was not
Like a counterfeit bill that still gets undetected by some
I pretended you loved me and stayed by your side

I pretended to see what I wanted to see
And felt what I wanted to feel
I went along with your act

Perhaps you didn't know how to love?
But your acting was superb
I closed my eyes and went along for the ride
