at the end of the day, all we have
is the night and
the solemn promise of a tomorrow
pledged in the wisps
of smoke
of a candle.

I hope to never see another wind-tumbled gravestone on a sea of astroturf.
I hope to never hear another child beg for their life from the impartial visor of a computer screen.
I hope to never feel the secondhand shame of a mind lived without thinking.

A second generation of human rolls in its infancy,
eyes of service,
blood of lightning,
skin of steel.

You have lived to see man-made horrors.
I will live to see horror-made men.
The children are our future, they say, because the future they've built is terrifying

I climb mountains of emotion
Ride the downhills
Trying to sync
Trying to flow
With the unpredictable path of life
On my soul-cycle Of love.

Exerting true power
I bloom
Into the flower
Of the present.

There is this deception
That I always tend to believe
The past is great
The past is the golden age

But as I wonder,
What makes the present day?
Isn't lovely?
Isn't magnificent today?

And now I reflect,
And remember Your faithfulness
The present accumulates
The wonder of Your grace
He is faithful.

You can control
The quality of your time
With your mood
Nothing has to truly ****
If you can open your mind
See past the 3D
And enter the present groove.

I don't need anyone to keep me company
When the Universe is with me at all times
Paying attention
Keeping me accountable
Being present
When I feel lonely inside.

My emotions get the best of me - intermittently.
I preserve them in poems,
like fluffy dinosaur feathers in amber,
because emotions never last,
as our present becomes our past,
they flicker, like lightning bugs and disappear.

Melting into the warmth that is you,
Melting into the dream that came true.

I am in understanding
That I have no control
Over all the thoughts, sensations, and feelings
That I experience
At any given time
I accept this fact
To give me power
Over my reaction
To enable my ability to reply.
