Tomorrow is full of sorrow
how do I know?
Because I feel the ice beginning to melt
and the vibrating sting
by the corner of my eyes
I hear the future cries ringing in my ears
life may end tonight
but I'll never know
not till the snoring stops
and her body lies dead in her bed
her bald head will still be on her fluffy pillow
but her soul will be up in the heavens
and perhaps they will hold hands
my dear sweet daughter
she is nothing but innocents like a spring day
she never... Read More

When you look at the sky what do you see?
Birds in the wind,
Or clouds floating by?
Can you still see the sun
When it’s dark all around?
When you look at the clouds what do you see?
A rabbit or an angel,
A horse or a devil?
Can you still see the blue
Through the clouds above you?
When you look at the stars what do you see?
Or hydrogen burning
In the vastness of space of time –
The origin of all life.
When you look at yourself what do you see?

Too many times I've stood before a mirror
And gazed into Eyes I did not recognize as my own
Evil eyes. Angry eyes. Eyes full of hatred.
The dark and the light collide into one space
As I long to bring myself into the existence I know
Wholeness makes my heart beat fast;
Adventure within my soul, yet--
The elation of airiness has me float like a marshamallow
Beyond this world and back
Light as a feather, stiff as a board.
It's not the temptation I shall fear,
But its leader that I follow--
The devil masquerading... Read More
