Maybe we're all puppets that dance by a thread,
Displaying emotions like delight and dread,
Telling stories as Destiny demands,
With the whims of fate being our commands.
What if we found free will, and learned to feel,
Discovering new paths, knowing what's real?
There's a whole world out there to explore
Life is comfortable, but could it be more?
I don't remember how I ended up here
The others are content, yet I wish in fear
Everyone's ten moves ahead of me,
I'm trying to catch up, it's a mystery
Is it worth the risk to escape alone?
This doesn't seem right, it's all I've ever known.
So I hold on, helpless and afraid
I dare not be more than what I've been made
Dreaming of a future where we're not playthings,
To be alive, unattached to these strings.

To think is to hear you
The sound of rushing water
Rushing against the walls of my skull.
Your words rippling deep within my psyche.
A cacophony of movement and noise
Built to push and pull.
Roll and Crash
Intrinsically, like the tide.
I am adrift
But familiar in unfamiliar water
I learned to swim, long ago.

"You are not drowning"
Yet, CoStar.
I'm not sure if its amnesia im afraid of, or the mere thought that memories are no solid proof of living.
I'm back.. **** it's been a minute

I'm a raw, exposed
crab, molting
new skin.
A reminder to myself that this happens on the ocean floor, where the pressures are immense, and the sun doesn't float down.
It's dark, but it is not forever. The ocean exists only in relation to the land it surrounds.

Well, well! These numbers,
don’t they tell quite an interesting story:
Aligning ever so perceptually, perpetually
perfectly with our half-full moon.

We are absorbing only
what we truly are
and honoring release
of all that is not.

The first full moon
of this Master Builder Year
of the Tigress Enchantress
capturing our hearts
and filling us up
to flood our programmed minds
with proof that we are free.

The drowning turns to flames
as quickly as flames
turn to vapor and disappear
into our One True Being’s
Eternal Grace. Smile,

even Laugh Out Loud
at this joyful purge
and holy release.
We are all one heart in love.

Lost in the static
Dropping to my lowest
having issues, but no need to show it!
Stopping bad habits.
It can be hard to manage
Still gotta hold yourself together
through a smile and stay charismatic.
Play my joint when you stuck in sadness
Remember my voice when you feel
you need some magic
I got no times to focus on my tragedies
All you fool wanna see me bad
Micheal Jackson on the run wit Bill Jean
I'll "Rock With You" if you on the right team
I know too many leaders
leaving this realm, to bring life to their dreams
They Don't Care About Us
Systematic sacrifices, always come and through regret they redeem.
Remember that Family Matters! I heard this
from the great 12 since, until I was 13
Mijo, caution on what you say.
and You always Say what you mean!
I been through the highs and lows
and everything else in between.
So forgive me, when I come off mean.
It's my job to make sure
you don't go through the same thing!

Life will test you and your advantages
Every time you fall I'll be around
to provide kisses for your boos boos
even when we are all out of bandages
Juice time with cartoon and sandwiches
fun time in imagination,
believe in growing your education
it adds up together basic mathematics
You don't always have to fight
life has rewarded those for being pacifist
Believe in your abilities and your skill set
for everything you do to become a master at it!

I been ripping and running all day
without a stop!
This is like when you're meant for the top!
I don't need riches,
You the cream of the crop!
Remember first impressions, leaves a mark
Your words and actions can do a lot
Take all have, and remember what you got...
Not everyone's your friend believe it or not
Everybody involved in different stories
playing a part just to be in the plot!
Playing around, please knock it off.
Be leader, run this game like a boss.
It's a sport!
Take a loss, it comes with a learning cost.
Get the net, sign a check, earning a stack, quadruple your gross!!!
It don't matter if it's Gucci or Ross!
Now show me what you can do! No excuse!
Anyone can have the Sauce
A brother like me, always been about the juice!
"I'm sorry to Momma" for having a short fuse
I had so much going through my mind.
May be like this until the end of time.
My boy Keep your head up. You a survivor.
My little Sagittarius control your fire!"
I know the Ambitions Az A Ridah.
But we gotta ride steady.. (x's 4)
_You do not have to punish yourself for faults or loss.
It is part of life and your soul will provide you essence
to be the light needed in everyone's life. Mostly your own.
You are important. You make me proud to be your father.
I will live for you, protect you with my life. No, force in this world
puts fear in my heart for you to honor your dream!_

We all love you, and will never stop being your side my son.

Venus is retrograding back into darkness,
right along with Mercury.
All the good vibes and smart thought
gone out the back for a smoke
and some fresher air.
We tire of the same-old-same of life
and think up different scenarios
retrofitting our changing flight.
No tears come for left-behind dreams
not serving up the crème-de-la-crème
at the top of the crop. And really
for you and for I, all this backstepping
is only a piece of the step to this
hilarious dance that is life. We see
our intro through doors of inspecting
all we see; and we see our way to
adjusting a slightly altered version of
each varied moment in our reality.
Be kind in your retreat and respite
from the steady movement and marching feet
following the wheeled-in ruts
imprinting the road behind. Yeah sure,
they got us here, but that doesn’t
grant them right-away passage
further onward into that dreamland
we see but can never quite reach.
Venus turns direct on Jan 29 and Mercury follows a few days later on Feb 3. Hang in there!

do not attempt any magic
when the full moon glow
during dark magic hour
powers are dull
we are already dealing with more than we can handle
so draw a bath
burn Palo Santo
Light a candle
and rest your precious soul
when the full moon glow
it will come
we will cleanse
it will go
it will leave our magic low
only to regrow
and overflow
until the next full moon glow

~take things slow
