Always believe in YOU..Listen to your heart. Trust your instincts. Know you can see your own strengths. Dream it, dare it.Do what you are afraid of.Keep the Faith.Follow your vision and remember anything is possible if only you BELIEVE...

Itís like Iím chasing my dreams; barely moving, in slow motion.

Stuck behind my own thoughts; too much commotion.

Haters hating; my thoughts, their self-promotion.

Got me, forcing my own hand; dealing with all these emotions.

Learnt that; Love is pain, mixed together; a strong potion.

People buying love; turns out, the people around you; will surround
you to crown and ring you- claim to fame, use the same to bring shame
to your name too.

One wrong move; they check you in; under the deck, and bury your
mate too.

Blood thicker than water, paper trumps the two.

Everything comes with a price; the cost they expect it to be; You.

So donít trust people, whose nature is to consume; it's will be your
doom.

Thereís no telling what they will do.

The people that you love the most Ė have a different point of view; the
closer they are; the more they assume; the quicker they are to move.

Killing you over nothing; I know Ė Iím so confused.

Eventually, the truth bleeds through; warranted, your heart breaks too;

Part two. Set the stakes too high, your right hand guy, will turn on you.

Leaving you wide open; your back with an open-view.

Those dollar bills, In God we Trust; one hell of a bluff- spending as we
lust; because enough is never enough.

Life is tough; Friend or foe; their all the same when shit happens; so itís

all good until the going get rough, then being good ain't good enough.

Excessive Jealousy doesn't tell someone how much you love them..it tells them how much you dislike yourself, and no amount of love, or promises, or proof from them will ever be enough to make you feel better. For those broken pieces you carrry, are pieces you must mend for yourself..

MY OWN WORLD KEEPS SPINNING&#8207;

Yes it does do that whether we are ready or not!
Have to pinch myself & say this quite a bit ,UP then down & sometimes all around ,in my own zone with my own tone ,asking myself how the he##
am I smiling instead of just bitc# ing to to hear myself moan.
Somedays are always long Mondays ,ripping & tearing going astray days ,while others centered ,focused with a new way to play days.
It's spinning on it's own axis but always asking us do we make our OWN gravity. Rick

A REASON

The perpetual wait until a next day,a burning cinder a never ending hope
we are easily lost in a spiral of gloom or doom if we choose to wait in an empty room.
A glimmer of light can shine through a granite wall if we allow a tiny crack
A hidden rainbow can bring about hope,the beauty of life can be so blind.

We only take notice to the burning & the bleeding.so quick to react
Passing by the others ,it is not noticed when the struggle or blight is internal
So many feel they could be heroes,or one will save them leaving them intact
we never stare at their despair ,such simple feelings can hide a huge fact

When it's internal, casually hiding, maybe just laying in wait, never noticing normal
We may never ever fear until it's to late,sometimes more than beauty is laid on our plate.
Broken souls, feeling thrown about ,never knowing,rude & crude not being formal
Our eclipse or the dawn, that bright light, will the mind be at ease when it meets it's fate.

Those souls we meet everyday, do we ever notice whats happening inside
Do they even know they teeter on edge, walking such a thin line
We often never confess from fear or maybe losing our pride.
An exterior upright & groomed ,the skin hiding thoughts known only as mine Rick

This forest shares its secrets with the wind,

Its whispered acorns; deeply buried prayers.

Where ferns glow green and stretch out spongy limbs,

And lichened rocks are holy altar stairs.

Black beetles genuflect and flash their shells.

Mothís tattered wings reach out to supplicate.

The breath within the soil gently swells,

And lifts up cantillations to the day.

A tree trunk lays itself in feathered moss,

While rings of ivy lash it to the ground.

The ancient Oak knew nothing of itís loss,

And wears the vines as Hera wears her crown.

I knew all this when I was still a child,

When God still showed His nature in the wild.

The game is always the same,
the roles never change.
I walk into the supermarket,
store detective comes to life.
He has eyes for me,
but tries to remain cool.

And then....

...we Dance.

Waltzing through fruit and veg,
quickstepping past fresh meats,
foxtrotting down to the cereals.

He plays a shy game, keeping his distance.
He has no rhythm, is easily wrong footed.
He is persistent, always finding me again.

Nuts.
Crackers.
Cheeses here we go again.

The chase continues, he thinks it's a cakewalk, but I think,
"saucy salsa, mashed potato, funky chicken, hey macaroni"
I'm done and cha cha slide to the checkout
where I know he'll be checking me out.

As I leave, he finally looks me in the eye, he seems dejected.
I smile, say hello and shake, shimmy, shuffle out the door.

It began in a foyer of evenings
The evenings left traces of glass in the trees
A book and a footpath we followed
Under throat-pipes of birds

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me...to the end of love.

Dont kiss me during the fireworks..Kiss me after and give everyone else something to look at once the chaos has passed.
Dont kiss me when you dont know what else to say..kiss me when that's all that needs to be said.
Dont kiss me at all the right times..kiss me mid sentence because my lips were moving and you were jealous of the air because they werent moving on yours.
Dont read up on old fairytales..I dont want a fairytale..I want real and in the moment..
So kiss me when you're up in flames and about to burst
Kiss me when the tears are doing all the work
kiss me hard and kiss me good.

SIMPLE SILENCE&#8207;
The silence can be deafening .
Do we await the internal ping of neurons bouncing on the hardness of our cranium ,is the scream to break the silence, it's hanging weighty glow
Are the awaiting voices an illusion a delusion or will they become the conclusion
Many would be aghast & how long the silence can last ,most do not have the model in memories of their past.
The rambling ,pitches & tones, languages,a word for every movement,object color or sound never to realize how the simple silence can become so profound. Rick

I've been stabbed in the back by those I needed most.
I've been lied to by those I love
and I have felt alone when I couldnt afford to be
but at the end of the day I had to learn to be my own best friend
because there's going to be days where no ones
going to be there for me but myself.

Poetic verse does not sleep contently within your bones.

You are not made of Shakespearean sonnets.

Metaphors do not cling to your teeth like snowdrops,

and similes do not lurk like assassins behind those false psychic eyes.

Your veins bleed nothing but red.

And your whispers,
they will never leave galaxies
along the length of spines.

So, Dear Heart,
you can take your stars,
your full moon romances,
the many, desperate love letters,
the gag-worthy cliches-

and eat them.

Till it happens, I'll be happy
Till it happens, I will wait
Till it happens, I'll be patient, just as long as it may take
I will hope, for I'm expecting
I am sure though I dont see
for the power whom I'm trusting
is much bigger than me
Till It happens, I'm contended, for nothing escapes Faith
and I know my answers coming
because God aint never late.
