Needful, Way Back When…

I experienced hearing the Music of the Spheres
in an altered State of Mind
Saw many wondrous sights & insights
from all the little lights

From patterns in everything
I found laughter for the first time
hidden in my psyche
for as long as I could remember

From a tragic youth, I blossomed
and found release for my inner voice
dying to be heard

Speak-Easy

I learned that speaking to god is easy
but the response sometimes hard to fathom
For god has a difficult mind
and it’s often hard to follow
when he strays from my decided path
leaving me in total confusion
ever changing the rules of misconduct

Seeker

I knocked but no one had an answer
I hypothesized but no one read the formula
Like tempered glass I shattered
Like the rain I fell from cloud nine
and nourished new growth
I bet on the ponies and lost my shirt
Standing naked I bathed in solitude
I tried to bake a cake but misplaced the recipe
I only know a little but I’ve learned a lot
… tell me, where lies the truth of the universe …

The Appendage of One to the Other

Your bias has best-expressed the dishonor of our existence
where I wear you like a well-fitted glove
with the thrust of impassioned rejections & misconceptions
seeking a medical advantage to undo this bondage
clearly a hoax of enormous proportion

Look in my tired eyes, where sure to meet wrath’s blinding glow
stoking the fires of subjectivity seeking relevance, asking
how then, men, does one address the distress
when encountering an unwelcoming-mat
guarding the entry to Valhalla?
