As bad as thinking of you,
Is the thought of oneself,
Before learning how to think of others,
And how they want to help,

The cause that is precious to everyone,
But aren't aware that it is the case,
That all that's required is some kind of systematic,
Collaborative management of others' space.

Invested with one's own identity,
For accountability is the key,
To honest and well-intended motives,
And community.

And it's not alright,
If you don't really get it.
This is what taking it to the next level's about,
And it requires all participants.

Faking It

It's easy to feel like a fraud,
But you must ask yourself,
How it is you are in this situation, at all,
If not from having delved,

Into life more deeply than where you started,
And by virtue of doing anything at all?
Everyone you meet started off knowing nothing,
And ultimately, themselves, are small,

And insecure beneath the shell that they're showing,
And it may be that their talent is just,
Learning the lesson of a tact that ensures,
That nothing said can be construed as useless.

And it's alright,
If that means nothing actually is said.
Sit back and observe the world that you're in,
Until you're ready to sit at its head.

What Happened

Everything works out for the best,
For things could not work out any different,
Whether better or worse, you'll never know,
To what extent,

That circumstance would lead to something even better,
Or a tragedy to lament.
Think of the best thing that could happen to you,
And it could end up as something never meant.

And moving forward requires an acceptance,
Of what has come before.
Is this all something rudimentary,
Or do you know what it's being said for?

And it's alright,
If you don't.
Just because your mind is failing you,
Doesn't mean your expectations won't.

Is it really possible,
For the righteous to defeat the failed,
Even when the latter's managed,
To keep its power availed,

For centuries behind the veil of virtue,
And built itself up to such a size,
That even David would have fallen many miles short,
While, by no one else, is the advantage recognized?

The answer lies in the people existing,
In the world at a given time.
If virtue is still something valued by most,
Then physics proclaims the virtuous more sublime.

And it's alright,
If it doesn't seem possible.
In fact, it's even better if that's the case,
So display the power of community council.

Mental Health

Motion is not constant,
Sometimes you must stop and think,
And ask yourself if you are embedded deep in your believes,
Or cruising close to the brink,

Of leaping into an abyss foreign to,
The way you know how you must live,
And though it all seems very exciting,
Experience tells you your beliefs are not yours to give?

But you must remember to start up again,
Once you have your bearings,
For depression will quickly replace your focus,
And make you adverse to sharing.

And it's alright,
If you need to go to others for help.
Everyone's learning the same lessons at different times,
And sharing them's how we keep our mental health.

Community is what's important,
And you may wonder why,
When all one knows is that they alone exist,
And that they must survive,

Or there will be no community to speak of,
Or anything at all.
But, even Crusoe created a community,
Despite living behind a hidden wall.

And how else can two people connect with each other,
Except to create a personality in which to share?
Maybe you're not sure who else exists,
But for your own good, you better care,

About others, alright?
Or you will soon find you are actually alone,
And separated from the community,
That you refused to admit is your home.

The Absolute

One cannot find the Absolute,
And can be destroyed by trying to find it,
With an obsession that forgets all else,
Rendering him illegitimate.

For the spark that lights the fire,
Is born of life itself,
While the obsession changes you from a human,
Into something else,

Something that has no longer any ability,
To choose where you go next,
Whick is a condition for even recognizing,
That the Absolute might exist.

And it's alright,
That it can ever actually be found.
The point is that we can think of it at all,
Because, as humans, to it we are not bound.

Where You're Going

To just keep things rolling,
You need to be rolling, yourself.
But here's the snag, you have to find yourself in a rut,
That maintains your mental health,

That sends you directly to where you want to be.
So, the question is now begged:
Do you try to anticipate the route of that rut,
Or do you make your goal the place where you're led?

And what good can you do in any old place?
Well, can you do just what you wanted where you wanted to go?
Take yourself seriously and acknowledge your abilities.
Half the battle is just to know.

And it's alright,
If it takes a lifetime to learn this.
You just have to accomplish it once,
To understand what this life truly is.

Staying true to the truth,
Means understanding yourself,
And understanding that you just know it,
And you cankt get it somewhere else.

Truth is an instinct even if you think,
It requires analytic thought,
For the final place you get after deconstructing,
Is a purely personal spot,

Where there is absolutley no explanation,
For the place that you find yourself in,
Except for the fact that you're wholly sure,
That it is free of misinterpretation.

And it's alright,
If you misstep every now and then,
As long as you proclaim it to the world,
As a universal lesson.

No one person can do it all,
And no one person should,
For no one person understands it all,
Or represents the whole neighbourhood,

Or even a portion, the point is,
That one person possibly can,
Organize enough other one persons,
To create a democratic opinion,

Through actually not holding any opinion,
But to sacrifice one's own one person voice,
For how else can one person be a conduit,
Than to defy Mill's preferential choice?

And it's alright,
For in the end, everybody wins:
Everyone else for actually being heard,
And you for being their voices' conduit.

Keeping Up

Take the time to look around,
And you will find that things move,
In such a circular but varied way,
It's hard to keep track the way you should.

But if you sit and write what's important to you,
And list the motions related to that,
And ignore the things that don't matter,
Won't that make you sad?

Because nothing is isolated in full,
And everything of important's related to,
Something you might not think of that much import,
Until it is to someone important to you.

But it's alright,
There's a remedy to that,
Embrace all and everyone,
There is a truth nestled in every fact.

Saturday, November 15, 2008


It doesn't matter where you are,
It's where you want to be,
Which is never where you find yourself,
Even if you had an eternity.

But there are certainly certain roads to be on,
That at least seem to be leading you,
In the right direction and when you're not,
You don't know what to do,

Because life does not offer redos,
Or even make it easy to try again.
Your life is so tangled up with those around you,
No departure can't affect them.

But it's alright,
Maybe this life isn't your only chance,
To do what you feel it is you should be doing,
Even if you find that you can't.

Soap Operas

Though you don't realize it,
Your movement through this world,
Is filled with so many adjustments,
As if a ball's been hurled,

At you and you need to muster all those,
Famous muscle reactions,
That allow you to catch it as if it's nothing,
Though an impressive collaboration,

Of senses, instinct and awareness,
Though you can try to bring them all to the forefront,
And be aware of them in dealings with people,
Until you blow up.

And it's alright,
Sometimes you need that view,
To recognize that others do it often,
Just trying to understand you.

Thursday, November 06, 2008


Just speak what you are thinking,
Just plain as can be,
Though, be sensitive to the feelings of others,
And what they might be,

And do say anything negative,
Put a positive spin on it,
And try not to speak too much,
Lest you bore everyone to death.

And maybe try to not say anything at all,
Because you never know,
If you might offend someone,
Somewhere you don't want to go.

And it's alright,
If you don't even think of it,
Sometimes it's better not even to think,
So you're not frustrated.

Wednesday, November 05, 2008


It's the spirit of the people,
It's the belief in something new,
And if that is not what's changed things in the past,
Then there's no use talking to you,

Then there's no use doing anything at all,
For then our movements are determined not by,
Our hearts' desires, but by cause and effect,
And that is a lie,

Not because you can think of doing something,
And you do it,
But because life is so full of uncertainty,
And humans continue to live it.

And it's alright,
If there is disappointment.
There can't but fail to be that regularly,
For success to be imminent.

Catching Up

There is no more time to dally,
The world's moving and though it can't,
Leave you behind, it can leave you watching,
While you sit there and rant,

Too afraid to put money on your mouth,
And action where your money is,
While the New Order happens all around you,
And your chance for happiness.

But don't you worry for there's plenty of others,
Willing to hold the torch,
History is not discriminatory,
As long as it always moves forth.

And it's alright,
Though this is a once in a lifetime event,
You can continue living in the past,
Until you figure out what you meant.

For Love

The moment you decided,
To change the life you love so well,
For the duty no one else would take,
You promised yourself a certain hell,

Self-imposed, and yet unavoidable,
For no one else was willing to take the torch,
For it would show them too much truth about life,
And distract them from their feeling of going forth,

And from the very things they use to distract themselves,
Is nothing a straight forward thing?
Even when following your heart, that most precious friend,
You are still compromising.

But it's alright,
For life is hard whether hard or not,
And the harder the more you tend to reflect,
On life, which is a luxury most hardest bought.

One Shot

Every moment proves to you that,
Every moment is unique,
And that every moment's a lost opportunity,
To find what you seek,

Not because you can't get it back,
But because seeking denies the find,
Take a moment to think of what you want,
And then leave it behind,

But don't waste away, waiting for that,
You have other things to do,
Things that people call responsibility,
That just mean life to you.

Because it's alright,
Until someone tells you to stop,
Dreaming of getting what you want,
Because you only have one shot.
