if i could visit my younger self
i would go back to the day
when the laugh of lions
didn’t scare me away
into a world

i was trying to leave astray

a world that once;

smoked me up whole
making swimming pools
out of my tears
that’d be dusted
off of my cheek
into ashtrays

just for the narcissist’s
around me
to feel at peace
drinking from the sea
of pain they ripped me apart in
because they only knew
what they had bled into me

Our love fills the imagery..
Of life secrets its colony.
A restful place of destiny.. happiness that is complete.
His excitement splashes from his soul like glitter ever so unsteady.
I apply sounds of stability, that steady the floors of common grounds.
Steps at finding partners' toes. hellos like liquid Golds.
Rich in this. Throne of humble homes.
Laughter going and going strong.
Mentally appealing...
His smiles,
His joys,
with fires.

It's okay. To be unfinished or unpolished.

We seek variety, but exclude vulnerability, when it's all part of culture and living.  We are members of  a transforming world  where similarities and opposites come together in unison.  

There's always opportunities...

Remember this
Don't let the issues or worries
Ruin another bound to be successful day.

You may have encounters, that will make you ill with hardships between a rock and cold, cold 🥶 hard place, on a nice plate. That's your entree, pity for an appealing appetizer, I suppose. For dessert it's rough times!

Beautifully stated, something to look forward to hmmm?

That's the thing to remember ...
There's always something to look forward to in case you ever get lost in the past.

Simple as matter of believing

Seeing everything in a heightened perspective in terms of creating light even from mistakes, and having an eye for the good, although the bad may linger for your company.

The titanic was not built in a day.

If you not going to try, then leave it alone.

Can't cry over spilled or spoiled milk.
It will not aid in cleaning the mess in process or reverting it to original freshness.

However it's more than okay to cry.

When has it ever caused problems for another soul?

It's okay to feel helpless, because it does not mean you are hopeless beyond repair.

Take everything with a grain of salt.

Yes, some days will be more rewarding than others.

You, are worth more than what money can afford. If nobody informed you.

I don't care if your parents never had faith in your spirited accomplishments.

This proud father here, wants to see his own, all children and YOU succeed!

Yes, times will come where you get frustrated or upset.

I believe our very evolution lies within our emotions.

My inner me, believes in the you that can do anything imaginable or extraordinary!

There's no escape, from the obstacles.
I offer these words in terms of you achieving your destiny

I believe in you!!!
Words from a wise man I have never received the honor of meeting, along with my own grandfather, may paradise bless them both in their departure. I am forever grateful fot the lessons provided to my love for me to revisit and learn.

a poetic and musical monument
weaved in harmony clear and fluent
for God life liberty and love
love is true ***** the flying dove
for a love blossomed felt so free
from a life lived in liberty
for a life that is  God blessed
if not for God then what would?
life in liberty wills true love
a prayer wish to all from above
God bless life liberty and love
a poetic and musical monument
remind inspire why it wouldn't?

In the nightmare
we lose ourselves
not wishing to look in each other’s eyes
left versus right
only millionaires and billionaires can afford to fight
male versus female
drop the hate to relate
life sold cheaply over internet wars
our nation
a nation of locked doors
and hate driven speaking drivel
I love you all but your minds locked into
Facebook culture wars
media ******
ratings soar
go viral be the virus
or inspire us
it’s your choice
war is afforded to the rich
if your poor dig your grave or ditch.

Upright, bipedal, con-fi, see, come saw
I saw thee under the mulberry tree,
when the wind stirred
the upper branchings
one who strives with truth in life's wild way,
rests - while watching, waiting for next
if I may, the past-tenseness of guiled, is guilt.
Hold no shame, having to do, and suffering so
painless, once used, patience always workd.
No guile, we waited for the point to go. Dotdotdot
-speak of that daemon and who should appear,
the daysman on duty, Mercutio's nearkin,
- was he one told to come and see?
a stranger in whom is no trick,
a confident man, selling his wares, for worth
to the buyer made ware by chance, lost in thought.

Something seems off when a person
knows with whom he agrees,
but I do not, ah, poorer in knowledge accrual, am I

So I, learn if I am as well agreeable,
does this trek into familiar detail seem allusive,
or useful, universal,
state of un-been-guiled, once too many times.
Bogus Science, and Ponzi Economics,
we climbed the dung hill, and found it comfy, warm.
- some sense from bovine ilk, Rumi-nated
- clover over rye, a pre-ference, cud-wise.
- The after taste, time to think,
- why do we use so many nursing cattle?
- What have we become, now that we can
- drink dead milk.
-back to the quest for a we for today-

Frankfurt determines that ******* is speech intended to persuade without regard for truth. The liar cares about the truth and attempts to hide it; the bullshitter doesn't care if what they say is true or false, but cares only whether the listener is persuaded.[1]

From <>

Where I was reared, nobody tells you
of a tattoo
on their back,
beneath covering clothes.
- but now, the layer of cool, coming on
- after all psy-sci-psi sense converged
Some folks do, for some unspoken reason,
- see, I wish you could see raw me, the art.
- forcing me to keep this skin.
- Possesion first, first right to claim, I know.
- BTDT- an imp experiencing samsara for me.
now, where were we, like like likest…
A person is presenting purpose,
proposing we have lost our links
to recovered tattoos - meaning hidden
not on your face, intending to make you see
Salience, a leaping roe, perhaps, saying see me,
perhaps saying I can leap the hedge row,
or it seems
so so salient, as if coming to attention,
tuned to the whole, boom
- lackachuma-fuma
salience the word is said again, by the fellow
with the deeply meaningful ta-toos
- a silly syllable enabling- bling
to which my attention attracts, salience
catches my at- tension, hooks me,
pulls me in, gnosis whispers know me,
deceive your grip,
accept my hand co-mand-astory manual labor,
I snap my fingers, we
receive my salient happenstance

fool me once, sell me an invisible tattoo,

a tool used to mean something,
meaning- full fashion affectations,
- as when a law is fulfilled -
put it there, where ladies show their spots.

Imagine we know it means something
distracting to the winds in- twisting my senses
sh, shush
shushing soothing, as might a 4-H kid,
nurse a stolen calf, and learn the price of knowing.
Live and learn, grands in a country school.

I'm just sitting,
Hoping for a day,
I don't have to face,
A blank page.
Any tips for inspiration?

If those mountains could talk, they would
If those sculpture could talk, they would
If your walls could talk, they would
If the mirrors could talk, they would

They are there
To witness
To console
To listen
To reflect

They thrive
In silence

So do you
Genre: Observational
Theme: The Purpose
Author's Note:
To be aware
Of every thing
Is the best gift of life

To be unaware
Of anything
The second best
