Child Race

  

                                                  The Child Race

The human race seems to be a child race. Instead of looking for ways to be free and self-reliant, a devastating majority of the population seems to be looking for a replacement for mommy, daddy and big brother or sister. They are caught in the belief that without someone else holding the future of their life in their hands they will perish or be over taken by evil. They lack the guts to face life and its trials based solely on their own beliefs. They believe the lie that tells them if they acquire things and the “illusion” of power than they are self-reliant. While in reality the power they have can be snatch from them by the sociopaths they have put in control.

The government can take your wealth, your property, your freedom and even your life with the stroke of a pen. We have to pay for money they borrow not only without our consent but even without our knowledge. We have to pay them to own a house, land or just to park or drive a car. They level laws on us that cost us huge amounts of money and we have for the most part no clue it is happening. They tell us what we can put in our bodies, who we can marry; they try to legislate our beliefs and behavior. Much of the time they use their own religion as a basis for these ridicules laws. How can you make a law based on religion, when religion by definition is actually only theory that is different from one person to another? When religion doesn’t work as a reason for a law then they resort to fear tactics and subliminal information. Why is this so out of control? 

We seem to be a population that craves rules and rulers. We have a ridicules situation of having to have so many levels of rulers and “authorities” It doesn’t seem enough to have an out of control federal government but we also have state, county, city rulers. Some folks are force to pay to have someone tell them how the can live in their own home, in the form of H.O.A’s. When are we going to grow up enough as a race that we don’t need this kind of nonsense? When are we going to stop searching for someone to worship or a daddy , mommy or big brother to protect us and tell us what is right. We live in a society that allows and even promotes the idea of someone controlling us and then complain we are controlled.

I hear so many republican politicians say they are for freedoms but seek to limit the freedom everyone else can have. Republicans aren’t alone, Democrats also try to pass bills forcing someone to do things they don’t believe in based on the needs of someone else.   These self-proclaimed demigods tempt young men and women with the title of “hero” “fighting to protect our freedom” but they are made to destroy people that cannot and do not pose any threat to our freedom at all. How can we believe that these are moral, family oriented people with a love for life and peace when they order the murder of innocent men women and children all over the world for no verifiable reason? Ask yourself if the politicians or their family members were to have to fight these baseless wars themselves would there ever be a war at all.  This out of control hypocrisy would be funny if it wasn’t so devastating to the lives of so many people.

When will we devise a rule of law that is based on protecting liberty and the rights of all individuals instead of being the inept race of hypnotized cowards that we have become?

rhetoric

I recently came across a post with this picture in it. The comments following were of course “he is so cute” , I just love his cute little face” and “I am kissing him in my mind ”to name a few with about 20 comments after that along those same lines. NO ONE sad anything about what this little guy was going through. Think about it, he is approximately a 25 pound animal wedged in a tree at the shoulder. Put yourself in his place what would you feel? Would it be how cute you must look or how much pain you are feeling with all of your weight supported by vise like pressure on your muscles and skin, You think he could have been afraid of falling?. I commented this on the thread and as was to be expected a guy reached deep into his bag of new aged rhetoric and pulled out the usual catch phrase said “seeing the bad is a sign of a negative self-image” or something like that.  It is sad how often a person will say what they think they are supposed to say to be seen as a loving thoughtful person when what needed to be said was the fact that the photographer was callous enough to pup this little guy in such a position as to cause him considerable pain. I am pretty sure instead of knowing he was being kissed in someone’s mind he would have preferred to be let out of the damn tree.

Cross Roads

Cross Roads

The spirit of a man began to stray

From within the body in which he laid

It traveled the ethers and rested where

There was a sleeping woman with silken hair

He stroked her hair, she made a gentle sigh

A smile returned, among the tears she cried

He stroked her cheek, she dreamed he cared.

She snuggled close, she felt him there.

Her heart was full her love was back

She dreamed her world was bright, her life intact.

He said, my love it is up to you

The time has come. What will you do?

My love is here my body’s not.

We both learned the lessons the spirits taught.

We know our love is strong and true

Time is now love, it is up to you.

She felt the truth as he explained

It is time to stand up and make a change.

He held her close, made her heart melt

She reveled in, the love she felt.

Then with a start she felt the lack

a weak, cold hand had touched her back.

The gray world was back the spirit gone

Her lonely tears continue on.

A Captive Heart

     A  Captive Heart

 

Through miles of darkness I see you love

In a dark and icy place

Your hearts locked in an icy prison

As tears run down your pretty face.

What can I say to tell you?

That it’s you that holds the key

I can show you the way to a life of love

Just listen close to me.

Your beauty is unmistakable

But you refuse to see

Your heart and mind completes you love

You’re as beautiful as can be.

Your sterile world you must leave behind

Just stand and walk and you will find

That love is more than just in your mind

Your world you live in can be warm and kind

Just trust it and you will see.

Just whisper into the darkness

When you’re lonely or your scared

Just open up your heart and mind

And you will know that someone cares.

I will help you along your path to love

I will do all that I can do

I’ll show to a world of love and light

The rest is up to you

My Girl

Thank you for the gift my girl, you gave me years ago

Through an injured arm and broken hearts you let me watch you grow

I watched you grow into a woman as you took your life in hand.

I feel anyone you choose my girl will be a lucky man.

As you move through the years my girl the truth will always be

I honor the gift you gave me my girl, the gift of sharing your life with me.                                                                                           R.CARUSO © 2011

Angel

Angel

 

Angel went to her husband and said “Rob, I have it bad

I used to look like the girls you see in Victoria Secret ads.

I remember the way you looked at me in awe of what you’d see

You acted shy and stuttered a bit the first time you talked to me.

You couldn’t wait to hold me close when we would go out on a date

You called me just to hear my voice; no longer could you wait.

Now when I look in the mirror I see changes that I can’t bear

I cover wrinkles in my face and wash gray out of my hair.

My breast aren’t pointing out they way they did those years before

Now if I go without a bra they point right to the floor.

There are other changes I have seen too depressing for me to say.

I worry with me looking this way how long you will want to stay.

Maybe I need a doctor to make me look like I used to be

Just a few thousand bucks for some lifts and tucks so you can worship me.

Just a couple of little implants and maybe some Botox for my face

And then when it’s over and I have healed, twenty years might be erased.”

Rob looked intently into her eyes thinking of what to say

He held her close and whispered “Love, it’s really not that way.

You’re right I was drawn to you because the way you looked before

But the time we’ve been together has uncovered so much more.

You are right I was really nervous the first time you talked to me

But now your soft and soothing voice helps to comfort me.

I don’t call you daily to hear your voice but it’s not that I don’t care

Your voice is always in my mind and I am grateful that it’s there.

You want the doctor to make you into what you were before

You say you want to do it so that I will love you more.

We’ve been together most our lives but it’s like you don’t know me

Listen now to what I say; there are things that you don’t see:

You never see me watch you, as you lay near me fast asleep

You never look deep into my eyes and see the love I feel so deep.

Or feel me gently touching you and stroke your soft dark hair

I touch your soft smooth skin, thanking god that you are there.

When you are away you never see this thing I often do

I hold your pillow close to me wishing that it were you.

I see you hide your body ashamed of what I see

You never believe me when I say you always look good to me.

I would never leave you; where on earth would I want to go?

You’re part of me and I am part of you; I love you more than you could know.”

negative thought

When it comes to negative thought or energy you have two choices

1.you can stand strong and face it with the strength of the light which always conquers the dark.

Or you can weakly hide behind you hands like a two-year old and pretend it doesn’t exist.

Lady in the Mist

I saw your face in my mind many years ago

Thought I’d love you in future time but how I didn’t know

I felt your softness through the mist of the dream that you became.

I felt I knew you for a real long time but I didn’t know your name.

I thought of the life, that I lead then and the change I would have to see.

While lying next to the one I promised that with her I’d always be.

I asked the spirits for the answer to ease my troubled mind

They answered soon relax my friend it will come to you in time.

I remember that with patience things seem to happen as they should.

When I am ready to meet the girl in my dream I know I surely would.

Then one night I saw the answer to the thing that troubled me.

I saw my wife; follow her path and how happy she would be.

I remember the relief I felt as we eventually parted ways.

Couldn’t help but feel we both were in for better days.

Little more than a week went by, till you spoke to me.

Though tears of pain you asked me please just tell me what you see.

My life has taken a sudden turn; I lost the love I thought I had.

Am I wrong, what could I have done, that could have been so bad?

I held you close in my heart as we talked about your past.

I told you of love that was coming soon but wasn’t sure how fast.

I thought of the closeness that I felt, for this woman I’d never seen.

I still hadn’t seen your face I didn’t connect you to the dream.

I could hardly believe, when we met my dream was in front of me.

Your beautiful eyes and soft sweet smile was all that I could see.

I thought what should I say, that I saw you in my mind.

I thought not giving you time to heal would really be unkind.

I convinced myself we met to let me help you with your strife

Like an eagle is what I should be, solitary in my life.

I told you I was wrong for you that I’d only be your friend.

We made a pact that we would be close friends until the end.

I watched you grow in heart and mind your spirit touching me.

I realized that only friends is something we’d never be.

You’re the woman from the mist, my dream from long ago.

Becoming stronger every day a love I need to show.

I love your loving spirit in my heart you’ll always be

Your loving softness soothes my soul your voice just comforts me.

I hold you close with in my heart every time you are away.

I touch you from the mist my love, several times a day.

I caress the soft skin of your cheek, I whisper in your ear

I love you more than you could know and wonder if you hear.

I look forward to the next time we touch, and share a gentle kiss.

I love you; you are in my heart my sweet lady from the mist

Hope

I watched you though the haze my love and held you in my heart.

My spirit will keep you safe my love even though we are apart.

Even though we were pulled apart by life’s torrential winds

The storm is clearing now my love, and then life will start again.
