No escape

No escape

It’s the strongest cage that exists
The prison you can never escape from
No matter how hard you fight to resist
You can not stop the way your heart strings strum

You can’t escape the Alcatraz in your head
A prison made with bars of strongest steel
And every time that you go to bed
You will not be able to help but feel

The loneliness seeping into your heart
The emptiness creeping into your soul
But it doesn’t matter, you will do your part
You will stoke the fire and tend the coal.
It’s not about you: it never will be,
You don’t want it to. This way you are free.

Transience

Transience

The meteor streaking across the sky

Through the dwelling place of uncountable worlds

The rainbow sphere bubble that floats and flies

Tracing invisible currents as they whirl

 

The flower that is all too quick to wilt

But leaves its fragrance lingering in the air

The laughter of a child, musical lilt

Lost in the moment, joyful beyond compare.

 

Balance is best achieved in motion

But we can’t stop chasing after eternity

Never stopping to pierce the commotion

To find the truth that will make us free.

 

Sometimes in life the things most beautiful

Pass through most swiftly, that’s why they’re special.

Beliefs

Beliefs

I believe in passion and determination above talent.
I believe in effort above absolute success.
I believe in health above aesthetics, above weight.
I believe in meaning above happiness, above comfort.
I believe in experience above material goods.
I believe in collaboration above adversarial competition.
I believe in the value an action provides others above what advantage it lends me.
Above all these things, above wealth, above power,
I believe in love.

Best moments

Best moments

Some of my best moments are in black night

With you, dreaming of our life together

Heart overflowing with joy, overflowing with light,

Certain that I will love you forever.

 

I think fondly of the countless moments shared

The feeling of transcendence in your presence,

As if about the rest I never cared

While our hearts beat in perfect resonance.

 

Life’s trivialities falling away

One man and one woman, time standing still.

Then I wake up and am steeped in dismay;

I’ve not yet met you. Could be I never will.

 

Until that day I will struggle and serve;

I will fight to become the man you deserve.
