*** it's one step forward, and three steps back
don't even have enough energy to light a candle
but i would like to watch a couple things burn
I'm lost myself all the time,
but when I get all of part of me
I just have one percent energy.
I think that is funny.

Raise your head
Raise your hand
Raise your voice
Speak it.

Shut your mouth
Close your eyes
Find your fear
Seek it.

Claim the place
Within yourself
Don't feel ashamed
Claim it.

Take your rage
From these past days
Take it.
Feel it.
Scream it!
The wayward divinity
flows through us all,
speaking to our missing piece,
divided we might fall.

When community is true,
we help each other through,
by the knowledge of one,
we can't be torn in two.

The love of humility
can open anyone's heart
and  intent to be honest
unites when we fall apart.
Thanks to my friend Chris Choi for co-writing.
You're trapped in the same wheel, despite all your cunning;
too meek to wield energy, the pain keeps you running.
A pit of darkness outside is what you perceive,
and what you feel is deserved, ye shall receive.

When you fuel the hate, it is stronger than love,
you hear it ripple like thunder through the air above.
And oh my, dear, I cannot disagree,
what sets you on fire once burned in me.

Life without healing amounts to zero.
The greatest secret is, you are your own personal hero.
Yet you could never see it, while hiding in your shell,
because you believed the world offered nothing but hell.

Hate does not have the Energy
Capacity
or Determination
to Extenguish
Love
Africa, your time has come
To increase your prosperity
And unlock your wealth

Through cooperation
And innovation
Your time has come
To remove obstacles
And create life abundantly

Your energy keeps building...
So many hopes and dreams
In pattern and matrix form
Ready to be clothed with
Physical matter

The ideas and technologies
Now safeguard personal identity
And bestow economic identity
To people and nations
That prosperity may abound

This poem was inspired by Charles Hoskinson, the genius mathematician who is also the founder of Cardano.  Charles and I both were inspired by Kiva, the micro-loan lending group that helps so many people worldwide.

Cardano is a cryptocurrency, but it's much more than that.  Charles has in mind to use it to establish economic identity for millions in Africa who do not have this blessing.  They need a safe and secure way to transmit money, own land with deeds, borrow money, and much more.

The projects are in the incipient stages but developing rapidly - especially in Ethiopia.  So I wrote this poem as a tribute to the people of Africa - and to Charles for helping establish systems to unlock the prosperity of the African nations!
As you hold me in your arms
Our fingers entwined together
A current of energy
Flowing from your body to mine
So strong and exhilarating
I melt into you
My heart racing
My breathing erratic
I feel like I could explode
From this overwhelming feeling
Your energy and soul
Connecting to mine
I have never felt you like this before
And I can’t wait to feel you like that again

Where’s your faith for me?
Where’s all that energy transferring from you to me?
What ever happened to
“I believe in you Zay”
“Let’s go Zay”
“Praying for you Zay”...
It’s so funny how I can cheer you on in your darkest hour
When your light becomes dimmer & dimmer into the pitch black void
When your demons surround you in your bedroom attacking you in your dreams.

I can lead us in prayer & God, himself, gives us power to overcome obstacles together.

Yet, when I’m down
I receive a closed mouth full of sand & a mind of emptiness from you.
You are only here to absorb energy
