Welcome to the Machine

 

It shouldn’t be shocking to anyone that we have people in this country that will fight animals to the death for money.  The only difference between them and our govt is that our government uses our kids instead of dogs.  not for money but for oil and control.  The amazing thing is that they’re able to get the American people to agree to it.  The dog has no choice. I personally support the troops were and disgusted in the way their lives sacrifices are being wasted by this heartless greedy militarized monster.  That we call home. 😦

Decision

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.

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.

Just a Thought

Just a Thought

We are bombarded with so much information every day especially

Through the media that many of us relinquish our power to the aggressive and just go the way of the hypnotized masses

We have forgotten it is possible to love and support the people in the military  but loath and stand up against war.

It is possible to be proud of your country but have disdain for the antics of its government.

Controlling how much others affect YOUR life doesn’t make you a control freak

That there is a difference between having boundaries and having walls

You can face negativity without perpetuating it.

Peace by negotiating to mutual satisfaction is REAL Peace

Peace through aggression or war is merely dominance

Forced respect is an illusion.

You can fight without aggression.

You can love without submission.

See fear as a challenge to be conquered Instead of an excuse to submit.

If you defer without participation to someone else to solve a problem that affects you, then you are part of that problem.

Remember that the Universe has the information but the truth is in you.

 

 

 

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.
