Where can I go?

What can I do?

Where is my haven I cried?

Who stands by me?

Will my spirit be free?

Why ever once denied?

How long the pain?

When will stop heartache’s reign?

My yearning to never defeat?

Where tomorrow may end?

Will torment amend?

What loves long-lasting will I meet?

But knowledge the tool,

Seldom used by the fool,

Will ever protect the wise.

With love’s power replete,

The challenge to meet,

Our future together will rise.

Emergence

At winter’s end, comes awakening call,

Arise, arise, friends and all.

Tis time to stir, to shake out mist,

Your faces blurred from season’s kiss.

Reach out your arms, to grasp the light,

Your bodies to strengthen, renew their might.

Let hands present, your fingers splay,

Stand tall, in splendor to salute the day.

Your arrival conceived, rebirth in mind,

First of season, your status defined.

With grace and poise, aligned at will

Emerge to us, treasured Daffodil.

Control

That sound you hear,

Assailing left ear,

Strong; it’s power compelling.

Be it spirit voice,

Or mindset choice,

Answers already indwelling.

For your struggle within,

Borne of chagrin,

Control the fixated issue.

Do not to deny,

Nor cast evil eye,

The fear begins with you.

To love without chains,

It only remains

To face the demon inside

Accept that your foe,

Is one that you know,

Stop controlling; learn to abide.

Knowledge Belongs to We

Youth may not Narcissus be,

Nor elderly own Solomon’s ken,

Ideas once forbidden fruit,

Egos may never bend.

When sought in need,

Misfortune often cause,

Must want of years for evermore,

Give advantage call for pause?

Does time endured warrant right,

To defeat untested opponent,

Could knowledge new,

Sound argument be component?

Scales of Justice, decisions to make

Choice belabors the mind,

Is discord bred by lack of skill,

Or patience left behind?

Let none who seek wisdom to gain,

Deny the facts at hand,

For knowledge is gifted to one and all,

Throughout the ages spanned.

You Never Said I Love You


When first we met, you smiled,

Meaning transparent, sincere.

No spoken word was shared,

            Yet missive loud and clear.

The pain that once possessed you,

            Now gone, your heart is free.

Strength became your lover,

            Wisdom your soul’s key.

Today we stand together,

            As one we do unite,

Facing our new tomorrow,

            We walk in greater light.

Let those who would assail us,

           Their poisons once to spread,

Confront their own illusions,

            Confined within their dread.

With no impure thoughts to impede us,

   Choices our only guide,

Love must be our power,

   Hatred never to abide.

For our love of one another,

Warmly, as we nourish,

Will one day rise above,       

            Our spirits ever flourish.      

Your love my inspiration,

            Our power beyond compare,

Bonds of devotion strengthened,

Hearts eternally care.

What voice may raise in protest,

            What words beset our day?

You never said I love you,

Yet proved it in every way!

Love of Self

You struggle to accept,

            That which you cannot see.

You deny a real essence,

            Unique to you and to me.

You say you know me well,

            But fail to realize,

You know only your vision,

            It is you to recognize.

You refuse to accept life’s burdens,

            Those we all must face.

You reject the simplest facts,

            To continue to self abase.

You must know yourself, my friend,

            Your spirit in decline.

You must defeat your poverty,

            For the pure love of self, is divine.

The Scent of You

Mystery overwhelms,

          What primal instinct besets?

Has true being been revived,

          Will there be any regrets?

Chains of promises secure,

          Their links crafted from desire.

While sensuous mist surrounds

          With hints of exotic fire.

Scarlet shades of promise,

          Bouquets without flower.

Announce coming presence,

          As though thru Jasmine bower.

No secret to reveal,

          Nor hidden course ensue,

The gift to this world,

          Is the scent that is you.
