As long as they like us

We don't have to be strong
The world's natural condition is peace
At the bottom of the wishing well
Are all those who thought hostilities would cease

If we simply gave in
Or went along with
If we just believed hard enough
We could make come true the myth

That one of the pillars
Is sufficient for balance to reign
But to leave out Body Mind or Spirit
Is to most certainly invite in

A rain of pain

Before it's time to die

How does one quit living
Before it is time to die
What words does one say to pray
When they have no soul to cry

What vast barren wasteland
Convinced you it's where you belong
How did you ever lose your place
Next to sacred grace and your favorite song

How many tears was it that fell
From your eyes and streaked down your cheeks
Before your dreams were lost to the silent scream
That comes from having no mouth to speak

Where does the Sunset go
When there no longer is a tommorrow
What great sadness is inside beauty
What great beauty is inside sorrow

Have you forgotten the promise that you made
How was it you lost track of what it takes to believe
Don't you recall the words that you said
Yes I know I know

If I am ever allowed to come back
I will always remember I must leave

Riding The Edge

I like riding the edge
Because that's where life and passion are
I like to look up into the night sky
Because that's where they keep the stars

The world is always playing music
But sometimes we can't hear it if we don't dance
How can we ever get to know each other
Unless we give each other a chance

I like making my move
But I never try to make it too soon
Sometimes I like to sit quietly
But I'm not above doing

Some howling at the moon

I like riding the edge
Even when I'm talking to you
I like looking up at the night sky
You never know when you'll see

A rogue comet streaking through

#369 in the brand new old saying series

You Know:

If you're talking about me
More behind my back
Than you are to my face

Maybe you should shut the fuck up

Love is not

Love is not endlessly tolerating

Those that berate criticize and demean
Is not endlessly putting up with ridicule
Is not always coming away feeling unclean

Sometimes fire is necessary
To take it all back down to the source
Sometimes lightning and thunder
Are part of walking a courageous course

You do not have to lose control
To put an end to degradation and shame
You may have to risk and take a chance
You may have to with faith face the pain

Stand up for yourself stand up for truth
Stand up for those for whom you deeply care
Draw the line say it straight out
Sometimes we are only as free as we dare

Unspoken Triangulation

Not losing isn't winning
Not getting caught isn't innocent
And just because you smile when you say it
Doesn't mean best wishes are being sent

Ignoring results doesn't mean
That they are not there
And isn't it odd how cold shoulders
Are often kin to hot air

And what kind of witness is it
That buries their heads or closes their eyes
And then wants to say they saw the truth
Because they did not see the telling of lies

What does a miracle
Look like now a days

It might be cans of chili
With a dozen eggs
It might be some fresh coffee
Instead of warmed up dreggs

It might be somebody sayin yes
Instead of could be should be or maybe
It just might be some dog food
For my tail waggin babies

It might be some chicken and red meat
It might be rice and bread
It might be a bag of groceries
That takes the worries right off my head

It might be Saturday's sunshine
Shining down out of the blue
Miracles might be a lot of things
But nobody's tellin me

That one of them ain't you
