It never ceases to amaze me when a person gets emotional while meeting another human being. I am not talking about when a baby is born to the family I tear up a bit there too. I am talking about when they meet someone and lose their composure merely because of the title or status they hold in the world.
We are all human beings no one better than anyone. Just because someone holds a high-ranking job or is born to a particular family why does that illicit extreme emotions or at the very least performance tears.
We are supposedly a country of people equal to each other yet many people insist on putting others on a pedestal.
I just had the unpleasant experience of seeing a news video of a bunch or folks coming unglued over meeting Michelle Obama. I admit she is a great looking woman of obvious intelligence and poise, but she is only a woman. I believe she wrote some minor selling book but mostly her claim to fame is that she sleeps with the president.
So where is all this emotion coming from. Why do these people believe that simply by virtue of her marital connections Obama or anyone else should to be revered?
It isn’t until this type of belief and behavior ceases will people actually live in peace and equality.
If you think our government’s foreign affairs are being handled right. try this experiment pick out someone that doesn’t like you ( it is easier than you think) than realize if they were to go nuts or are nuts and can come after you and hurt or even kill your family how would you handle it? If you do what our government does you would go to their house, tell them they have to give up their guns. Baseball bats, or any sharp objects that can potentially hurt you. You of course will have all of those things yourself and if he doesn’t, you kill his or her family.
How would you be treated? You would be pitched down into the bottomless put that our prison system has become and never have a decent life again. Can you/ Do you still agree with what we are doing in Iran or around the world?
Your mind starts spinning with logic and fear
You feel yourself slipping, insanity near
Conflicting emotions are now in your path
You know your irrational but how long will it last.
You try to understand this pain that you feel
Your mind tells you something but in your heart it’s not real.
You reaction is first to just stop the pain.
You get control for a moment but start slipping again.
This could last for an hour or a few days or so.
What happens when it is over for sure you don’t know.
Now you are in your right mind hysteria’s past
You understand the confusion your sanity’s back
You look around feeling embarrassed and shamed
Are your friends still your friends will they let you explain.
Will they feel the real you had finally came out
Did you lose their respect is your friendship in doubt.
Can they really understand what just happened to you?
Will they remember the time when they were there too?
Have they ever felt confusion or been riddled with pain?
Will they remember a time when they too felt insane?
Though this feeling is fleeting it can change your life
You can lose a husband or boyfriend a girlfriend or wife.
If this occurs and you lose your best friend
Just dust yourself off and start stepping again.
The strength comes from understanding what just happen to you.
Just figure out the real problem and what next time you’ll do.
Now you say you know how to keep hysteria at bay.
You’ll just block your feelings so the pain stays away.
I admit this is one way but it comes with a price,
You’ll never have understanding of love or of life.
So walk through this life with your compassion maintained
Be there for your friends when their hysteria reigns
I gaze upon and eagle while standing at the door
I look again behind me not sure I want this anymore.
The eagle’s life I knew to be tranquil and so free
I look behind me once again it’s sure not that way for me.
I remember my flight with the eagle flying high above the crowd
Detached from turbulent emotions and egos screaming loud.
I watched as people attacked each other aiming for the heart.
I noticed the people that professed their love quickly torn apart.
I asked my friend the eagle why do you think they act this way.
He said they crave protection they don’t know any other way.
You see they never rise above and see the world I see.
They feel a life of beauty for them can never be.
They just need to relax their mind and follow their own heart.
For if they did this one small thing their lives would have a better start.
I listen to him intently and then asked what am I to do
Do I go back in to my path my friend or stay out here with you
He looked at me a second, thinking of what to say
Your mission of life is not about keeping things away
You’re here to live among them and help them to see the light.
To show a way to live their lives with out a constant fight
You can do your best to understand and help them find a better way
But if you choose to join them, then fighting will fill your days.
Remember the sights you’ve seen flying here with me
Take it with you now my friend and help them all to see.
Tell them of the sight you’ve seen the beauty from above
That they to can see this too they just have to rise above.
I pondered what the eagle said as I stepped back inside the door.
I think I’ll live my life from now on not fighting anymore.
I’ll try to live life gliding the way the eagle does.
To do my best to live my life balanced, with strength and with love.
I looked around with this conviction amazed at the sight
The world that looked so dark before had completely filled with light.
The sight of brightness helped me put my hard feeling down to rest.
So now my path is clear I understand my Quest.
To help people find their way to the future that they seek
To help them find a way out of pain and strength for when they’re weak.

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.

Its 2 am and I’m sitting here typing on these keys
As visions, words and scenarios spin inside of me.
Sleep thus far evades me as I think of what they mean
I know I’ll never sleep a wink, till I’ve told you what I’ve seen.
I see treachery and bigotry, poison food in all the stores
While people we hired to keep the peace use lies to sell us war.
Our children are used as pawns, as their lives were about to start.
They are sacrificed there needlessly leaving families torn apart.
Health care only for the wealthy, justice bought and sold by phone.
Schools teach competition, but understanding is never shown.
They teach pride in school and football plays.
But a class for tolerance is not the way
If you’re not happy take your pill today.
It is a robot you will be one day.
That’s just the way it goes.
Then the disasters came and millions died for them help would never come.
Then the economic tapestry began to come undone.
Corporate thieves and politicians pretend each other is to blame.
The society has destroyed itself like a Phoenix in its flame.
During this vision I wondered why it had to be this way.
A voice said, people won’t make a stand, they’re afraid to have their say.
They find their peace in ignorance, false images in their eyes.
They find solace in political rhetoric as their planet starts to die.
Vote for change they’d always shout, our needs you have to meet.
The only change that’s ever made is who occupies the seats
Then the scene began to change as dust settled on the land.
A world of understanding came as new leaders took a stand.
The voice said these leaders, are nothing like the ones you had
They have no greed or prejudice they know why things got bad.
When they saw the changes coming, they tried to warn and educate.
All they could do was share what they knew and then stand back and wait
They addressed the abuse of animals and came to their defense.
They tended the needs of the common man, and put injustices to rest.
They fed hungry people the best they could.
Collecting donations from whoever would.
When a protest was needed that is where they stood.
They did their very best.
Now they will lead this world to the place it needs to be.
A place that compassionate behavior is what people expect to see.
No more will virtue, be seen in cold and greedy acts.
When the masses show integrity the will be no changing back.
The scene disappeared completely
but the voices went on to say
you saw a piece of the future but the work must start today.
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
On a mountain precipice an old man stood
thinking about his life
He took a pen and paper out and
quickly began to write
He wrote I faced my inner demons; I stood
strong through every test.
It has been a long hard road to get
here ; I have done my very best
To my kids I love you deeply, beyond this life that love will stand
You birth gave me life, your life
gave me strength to be a stronger man
You were taught to stand strong
against adversity; though it’s hard to tell just when.
Are you standing strong on stubborn
ground? Or should you step back and start again
I watched you face your challenges my
hopes and prayers with you
I listen through your painful nights
wishing there was more that I could do.
The years went by so quickly not
enough time to keep you close
Of all the things I’ll miss in this
life I’ll miss you both the most.
To friends and lovers that’s come and
gone I hope that you can see.
No matter what happened I did my best
, I was the all I knew to be.
To god please send this letter to the ones I love; something I know that you will do.
People I met who cried for help, I
gave a message to them from you.
He wrote “my health is failing, won’t be useless in this life.
So he tossed his letter to the
Universe and stepped into the light.

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
