How can you communicate,
With someone?
I know the test is to ask them to do something,
And they understand you if that something's done.

So what if later they don't do it,
Or if they promise that they don't understand?
Is communication a random event,
Or are the requested actions simply chance?

'Cause let's be honest, how obedient is,
Someone who is not a slave?
Of course, ask someone and he'll say there is no other,
Kind of relationship made.

Oh, it's alright,
How much can't you do for yourself?
If no one understands a word that you're saying,
Why leave what you need done to someone else?

Nothing Today

I don't know what to say,
So let's leave it at that,
Because without the fuel of anger,
Thoughts are simply flat.

And without the fire of passion, also,
Meaning will really lack,
Of course, a void can say a lot but let's not forget,
That for meaning you also need fact,

And fact is so dependent on perspective,
Let's just forget Iraq,
'Cause if I offer up just one proper noun,
Let it be one that is not fully packed,

By - oh, it's alright,
Let's not get into that,
I really don't have anything to say,
And I want to say it with a little a tact.

I just want something to work,
That does not work for me,
And if I had the choice, I would not despair,
And work on it eternally,

But life's not like that and every moment,
I use up trying costs money.
So, 'is it worth it?''s a question I must ask,

Because if we accept that cash is the guage,
We use to assess people's worth,
(And don't tell me it's not) then let's not stop,
At salary, let's just look at that first.

And it's alright,
If we start carrying it under our skin,
It will become such a part of us,
It may as well be disappearing.

Go Ahead, Be Happy

How happy can you get,
And how annoyed can people be?
I'll tell you that it's quite possible,
Annoyance has been caused by me.

So what's the point, is it about being bitter,
And fulfilling your life that way?
I wouldn't put it past humanity,
To not desire happiness, say,

Because it stifles progress because why,
Fix something that ain't broke?
I'll tell you another thing, you can still be happy,
Creating new things, folks.

So it's alright,
If you want to be happy.
Even if you want to scream it to the skies,
You won't hear any guffaws from me.

How I Know More 'n Say

Now that all that is over,
And I can stop being positive,
I'd like to turn over a new leaf,
And begin ceasing to give,

The type of advise that might make someone say,
"Man, is that guy gay."
Not to say anything is wrong with that,
But I always thought one day,

I would be as raunch as a Henry Miller,
Like when yesterday I was called 'dickweed' by some guy,
Who asked if I was going to let him through,
And I turned to him and said, 'yeah'.

And it's alright,
I will get my day,
Maybe once I have stopped caring what,
Other people say.

It takes very little,
To beat down a man,
If you compare it to the energy needed
To be all you can,

Against the resistance of the world at large,
Not just against your own instinct,
To suppress desire, because more than your own health,
You worry about what other people might think,

Though, what you think they think is actually,
Very powerful.
So, think that they're thinking wonderful things,
And you'll have elimated your greatest foe.

And it's alright,
If you can't let go of the thought,
That everyone is really out to get you.
You're probably not that far off.

Falling Asleep

Filling up the time,
Might be harder than one thinks,
And having a job to occupy you,
Might be the acme of ingenuity,

And deviousness. I am just saying that,
Because society demands it.
Okay, it's more like what is expected,
From a social commentary poet.

But between you and I, there is a problem,
And it's that problem that keeps us all from,
Investing time in denying ourselves,
A well-deserved revolution.

And it's alright,
If you really are satisfied,
Take some time to acknowledge it,
Because most people wait just before they've died.

Tired Again

You can never know,
What the future will be like,
And whether all your dreams will really come true,
Unless you commit your life,

To understanding what the universe needs,
In order to work its magic.
That is, knowing what it is you actually want,
And then being noninterferic.

What am I saying? I guess it's based on faith,
And a desire not having to,
Navigate all the motives of everyone,
Who might want to interfere with you.

It's alright,
Just like my mother said,
Just make a wish and let it go,
But make sure to get your ass out of bed.

End of Vacay 2007

Here I go again,
Back to where I started,
And if you asked me if I'm any different,
I'd have to go back to where I parted,

From the self that does all I must do,
To allow myself the freedom,
To go where I want until I have to get back,
To the life of tedium.

Which isn't that bad because at least I like,
The things that I have to do,
But, of course, if I were to have the choice,
I'd be doing something new.

And it's alright,
One day I'll figure it out,
And be doing the things I want all of the time,
Probably by changing my mind, no doubt.

Sunday, July 22, 2007


Take your lead from other people,
Not that they know much more than you,
But their risks and mistakes will be good examples,
Of what and what not to do.

But don't get jealous because every journey,
Is dependent upon,
So many factors outside your control,
No two people can take the same one.

They can take the same tack, though,
Catching the same wind,
Which is really only motivation,
The expression coming from within.

And it's alright,
To never let your sails up,
That is if you want a life filled with regret,
And with no accomplishments.

Dreams Come True

Every moment that's wasted,
Is one not wasted by someone else,
And every thought not made reality,
Is a negation of self.

Just do it's what I say,
And no one wants to believe,
That just creating something in this world's,
One step closer to being free.

But think about it, freedom is power,
And power can come from size,
That comes from proving your existence from effects,
And better yet if it's things people buy.

Even just reading isn't really anything,
If the generated thoughts just spark and die.
Without the fire to impose your ideas,
Your sleeping dogs will forever lie.

And it's alright,
If you only ever dream.
That can be a whole world unto itself,
That you can escape to and be free.

Pursuit of Happiness

When you're having fun,
And the world's having fun with you,
And you have no worry in the world,
And you have your health, too,

Make sure you find something to bring you down,
Because, god forbid, your happiness lasts,
'Cause if it does people will beat you down,
And the world will turn on you fast,

Not because you don't deserve what you have,
But because no one else does,
Because if they had it it would not be,
To them advantageous.

And it's alright,
If you want to be happy on the sly.
That's probably the best way of having your cake,
And eating it before you die.

Despite It All

Greatness does not fade,
With circumstances,
Because the point about being great,
Are the logical dances,

You can do around the obstacles,
That everyone experiences in life,
And if you think you've had a bum deal,
Then with self-pity your mind will be rife.

But if you're ready to do all that you can,
Regardless of the things that,
Get in your way, or that you've chosen to take on,
Then, you may be great, as a matter of fact.

And it's alright,
If you let life get you down.
That's just the way that some people are,
Without whom, others would seem less profound.

What you think of nature,
Is what nature is.
If you see the beauty in cruise ships,
It can be glorious.

If you can't help but talk,
About the beauty within,
That is only ever seen by you,
Well, that's legitimate.

And life can be about life,
And not about the things outside,
That one might call beautiful,
Even though they're things she hides.

And it's alright,
Wherever you find nature,
Is where nature is,
You can be sure.

The Miller

Someone has been telling me,
That you have to reach the soul,
And how you do that is through self-reflection,
Through the images of the world,

And sensations, because without those,
You're not living on a plane,
That has any relation to reality,
Because it's all in your brain.

So do the things that make you feel guilty,
Because those are the things that are wrong,
Not by nature but by your upbringing.
Without it, life would be too long,

To be alright.
You know, I just have to say,
That when I'm older I hope I can look back,
And say, 'I'm better for it, today'.

Feelings that come from being,
Not what you'd call honest,
Can burn deep inside you, even if you,
Only feel a tinge, at best,

Because that energy has to go somewhere,
Even if you think this sounds like fluff.
You believe in things you don't see everyday,
When someone explaining it to you is enough.

So, just be clear with yourself about the science,
Of reactions for every action,
And believe that it will all even out in the end,
And that you'll one day be the cheated one.

And it's alright,
Even if you're cheated unproportionally,
When things settle down you might find,
That you come out ahead eventually.

Rotting Ovaries

The closer you are to despair,
The closer you are to truth,
Say some people but if you ask me,
It's when you learn something new,

Which really is the same thing, but more inclusive,
Acknowledging position rather than feeling,
Which is more universal to humans,
At least as an understanding,

Of what you're looking for if you want to see,
The nature of reality.
Actually, bowing only to how you feel,
Obscures the true object of understanding.

Oh, it's alright,
If you only use your personal guage,
But don't confuse others by trying to say,
That everyone is then on the same page.

Saturday, July 14, 2007


Things are mostly fluid now,
There's no need to understand,
The structure of society,
Because it's stretching as much as it can,

To elude understanding 'cause it's figured out,
From the viruses that confound science,
That evolution's really the key to survival,
If you do it quicker than the rest.

Like robots built to serve that become the master,
Humans have created something out of their control,
A Frankenstein that was meant to improve its life,
That has taken on a life of its own.

And it's alright,
You don't have to be scared,
You may be one of the lucky ones in society,
And die having been treated fair.

If you have a heavy burden,
Just remember that one day,
You will either be able to let go of it,
Or build the strength, so it's okay.

And while it's heavy it's good to think about,
The fact that if it wasn't important,
Enough to warrant sacrificing yourself,
You wouldn't even be carrying it.

And in those moments when you feel it must drop,
Or you will have to stop in your tracks,
Just sit down and smell the roses.
Recuperation comes when you just relax.

And it's alright,
If you decide to just leave it behind.
Your body would never let you let go of,
Something that keeps your peace of mind.

Thursday, July 12, 2007


What is it this time?
Is there something missing,
That you can't find with some self-reflection,
And some heavy drinking?

I think the problem is you don't understand,
That to be happy now means to be happy now,
Not as if it's all that easy, really.
What's it like to be happy, anyhow?

Well, it means you're not caring so much about people,
Or rather, about what people might think.
It's been written before, but that's my opinion.
Reality and perception don't share a link.

And it's alright,
If you have to know what other people say,
And if you run your life according to that-
Well, it's your life at the end of the day.

Saturday, July 07, 2007


There is never any guarantee,
That anything will last.
I have to remind myself because,
Nothing yet's changed from the past.

And if I lose it all there will certainly be things,
That I won't miss,
But damn, if the universe stops surprising me,
It better replace it with some tenderness,

The kind that makes you feel that you're taken care of,
Because right now I'm relying on the faith,
That what I need will come to me,
And, so far, that's always been the case.

And it's alright,
I guess if everything changes,
I'll still be the guy that takes it as it comes,
You know, you how is you came is.

Friday, July 06, 2007


You can only move forward,
Even if it's back,
Goddam it, even when you're going forward,
There's shit that you lack.

I guess that's motion when you couple it with,
The fact it can't last forever.
How many times can do the same thing,
Before you die without a future?

Not to be prescriptive, but do what you like,
Before you're too old to do it,
And not just that, but don't not do other things,
Because you think that they'll never fit.

It's alright,
There is plenty of time,
To do everything you've ever wanted,
Even if it's only in your mind.

Offend Me

It is almost over,
I don't even have to think.
But, if I don't I'll have a hell of a time,
When I make it to the brink,

Of all bullshit that is left over,
From the bullshit of everyone else,
And if you think I'm talking about you,
You better take a look at yourself,

And at the reasons you come up with,
For feelings you would have anyway.
What, 'you can't give, you can only take offence?'
Well fuck you very much, and have a nice day.

And it's alright,
You'll never offend me,
Unless you put in to question my decisions,
Because I never make them with any certainty.

Wednesday, July 04, 2007

I think we all have dreams,
Whether we like it or not,
And whether what we dream is what we want,
Or whether we have a shot.

Last night I had a dream I'll never forget,
Because my anger overcame me.
I was screaming about how people become assholes,
When it comes to money.

And when it comes to money, I would love it,
If it all came to me.
I would take a match and with one strike,
Create inatant equality.

And it's alright,
I don't really think it'd be that easy,
To destroy that much cash,
I'd probably need some gasoline.

Just Living

Just a little closer,
And the line will be crossed,
Though, I don't know if that's what I want to happen,
Because with it comes a cost,

Like, maybe, what about relationships?
They will never be the same,
And I'm not just talking about the ones I'd lose,
But the ones that would remain,

And that would be tried by what I had to do,
To be where I am today.
Though, what I had to do was be myself,
And I couldn't have been any other way.

And it's alright,
It can't end up any other way,
Than how it will, because I refuse to be,
Other than what I am today.
