Plan
Put the details
all in a line
step by step
act by act
to find
the nirvana
of fulfilment

So many days
So much of my life
listed
minutiae
documented
And now,
more than ever
my feelings
are laid bare
for all
to see
and this makes me
happy

There is no light
no single point
to signify
the end of the tunnel
for the road is never straight
and the tunnel does not exist
the only light you'll find
is the breaking waves of dawn
at the end
of the night

The dawn
Divided
Clouds to the west
Sunlight in the east
yet beneath the clouds
a gift from the sun
Under the gloom
a bright spectrum
with a pot of gold
'neath its elusive foot
Walk under the line
between rain and sun
the dividing meridian
between east and west

Silence
still heart
still mind
unmoving
barely breathing
let it all
flow past me
as I
rebuild
to face the world
Let the flame
burn away
all the falsehoods
and let me
be real

Lay my head
on my pillow
and let this day
come to a close
it's had its ups
and its downs
and swings
and roundabouts
but now it's done
and I close my eyes
until the dawn
brings light again

Let another day
bring its gifts
and challenges
to me

I share snippets
small parts
fragments of facets
of a wounded soul
Hidden darknesses
shadowy recesses
are never released
into your view
Only the happy
the friendly and shiny
ever comes
to these pages
The door is opening
inch by inch
I'm letting it go
freeing the night

This is flux
This is change
This is me
Now

Man
A wondrous machine
blessed with faculties
that border on the infinite
and yet
so simple and predictable
A race of kings
Godlike in their own eyes
And yet
a simple speck on a planet
that they seek to tame

Tick
The second hand
quivers
to a halt
a breath
exhaled
a light
flickers
a bird flaps
its wings
a picture
caught
Tock
the hand
moves again
Time
only moving
when the hand
quivers
from point
to
point

Words
hurting
stinging
piercing
like arrows
attacking
purposeful
hateful
They come
incessant
unfeeling
remorseless

Why?

Little one sleeping
grow at your own pace
Daddy will watch
And pick you up when you fall

Little one sleeping
enjoy this time
Daddy will love you
whatever you do

Darkness looms
threatening
to wrap me up
in cold embrace

within me is a torch
a burning flame
ready to shine
and banish the night

I strike my flint
to light my tinder
and let the flame
engulf me

I am a light
a star among stars
and I will shine
just as brightly

Let it flow
let the feelings form
their own river
and flow out
into the sea
of life

Let it flow
release the dam
walk tall and proud
of how you feel

Above the layers
of nurtured anger
long held resentment
fear of the past
and of the future

Among all the doubts
of self and abilities
fear of failure
and masks worn
to hide myself

Somewhere in me
is a light burning
bright and joyful
wanting to scream
I'M HAPPY

A drop falls from the sky
shattering
breaking
singing

fragments roll with gravity
joining
merging
flowing

More droplets join the stream
strengthening
building
growing

A mighty river is formed
carving
living
feeding

Join hands

Join together

We are mighty

O the machinations
of simple fools
as they prance and dance
to their odd little tunes
Observe their whirling
with a sense of detachment
and what you will see
qualifies only as comedy

O the machinations
of the drama queens
join me and laugh
at their silly game

Here at my side stands a group
from all of life's many roads

Among them are the strong
the intelligent and the true

I feel proud that they count
me as friend or brother

I am honoured by their support
they advise without rancour

And I am blessed to be loved
by a singular miracle among them

Friend is a title I may give freely
but it's meaning is a priceless one

There may be others out there
who weigh that title cheap and light

But they cause pain with every footstep
on their lonely and selfish road

I have many blessings around me
and each one, I can name

My only wish as I look around
is that my friends never depart

What is your truth?
Is it the same as mine?
Would you use
the same words as me
to tell it?
Would you paint it
in the same colours
as I?
How well do you know me?
How much of your truth
is just your opinion?
And how much
of my truth
do you know?

Fly
try to reach
all points
at the same time

Fly
around in circles
faster and faster
spreading yourself

Fly
cover all things
that need to be
for a slice of time

Fly
looking insane
yet somehow
getting it done

Words
so limited
so plain
Yet they drive
they hurt
they inspire
and scare

Words are used
every day
in every emotion
but too few
seem to respect
the power
of a word

Fall
Fall
Fall

Can you stop
before you crash?

Do you have to lose it all
to truly want to climb?
Or can you just be stubborn
and reach out your hands
and find a way to slow
before beginning to climb?

Fall
Fall
Fall

Reach out
before it's too late.

Feel
Whatever emotions have been hidden
Whatever moods have been suppressed
Whatever love you have in your heart
Whatever it is that hurts you

Feel it

Feel alive

Live, don't just survive.

There are no easy roads
no simple way
to reach a goal
that is worth attaining.
There are many ways
to choose from
and many examples
to follow
It is one thing
to admit your flaws
but another thing
to heal them

Strive
to be impeccable
Say all you mean
and mean all you say
Each word uttered
has the power to make
or break
your world

Free
your own world
into this world
Never assuming
the minds of others
and never taking
their words
personally

Live
fully in reality
Always doing
the best you can do
taking each moment
knowing yourself
Be aware
of all you can do

One hundred days
a century of slices
of my mind
and my life
sharing feelings
maybe inspiring
hopefully giving
food for thought
one hundred facets
of my mind and soul
shared here
for all

Time
No matter how it ticks
even the length of the tick
and the tock
can change
linear it may be
to measuring instruments
but to a soul
time is fluid
from long moments of boredom
to the flying hours of joy
so let the clock tick as it will
and let the waves of time
carry you

Day 98

As we approach
the final stretch
let the magic
of the setting sun
fill your heart
with joy unmatched
and let the light
of your spirit
shine through your eyes
and rival the sun

You know the hardest thing about being smart?
I always pretty much know what's gonna happen next.
There's no suspense.

Things are falling
the way I predicted
and yet a surprise
found its way to me
Smart I may be
but even I
cannot predict
the winds of fate.

Italicised is dialogue from the movie "Bandits"

Day 96

Let love in
let it fill
everything
when it comes
once you feel
sensory overload
open the door
to the deluge
of emotion
a tidal wave
of joy
take the plunge
before it
overwhelms you

Day 95

Whatever happens
Now
is the time
to make your dreams
come true

Whatever the road may bring
Now
is the beginning
of a new and brighter
journey

Whatever obstacles come
Now
is the moment
to start a smile that will
always return

Whatever the past has taught
Now
is when the lessons
should be put into practice
forever

Let him sleep
he's not needed
not now

He will need
all his energy
soon

But he's silent
in peaceful slumber
right now

Yet he knows
all that happens
to me

A whisper carried on the wind
sings of shifting climates
where once was rain, sun will shine
and clouds will cover clear blue skies
listen to the whisper
for she is your friend
and her voice is such a welcome gift
heed her words and prepare
for whatever the weather brings

The end of a shared road
came sooner than expected
but somehow
it was expected
some wounds cannot be healed
some rifts become too wide

fare thee well fair traveller
my road was brightened by your presence
and may it be brightened still
by the presence of so many others
and the memory
of a once shared journey

Day 91

God is in the rain
I look up and see
a shard of eternity
in every drop
that falls from the sky
to nourish the land
and provide the body
for mighty rivers
to be born
and the food
for giant trees to grow
eternity's shard
finds its way into
every living thing
becoming a part
of all of creation
there may be God in the rain
but there is God in everything

Italicised is a line from V for Vendetta.

Let a little light
shine through
from your spirit
to set your skin aglow

Let a little light
illuminate
the path before you
for those you love to see

Let a little light
reach up
to warm your heart
and heal its every scar

Let a little light
reach from
your heart to another
connecting in love

Questions
Spinning around
inside my head
is what I've been told
true?

They've been spinning
all my life
and one by one
I find my lessons
weak

The strong ones were held
true very quickly
but the weaker ones
are still in my head
spinning

One day all
of these myriad queries
will find their way
to an ultimate
resolution

Day 88

Jul. 29th, 2006 02:28 pm

Find joy
in the light
of the sun
and let it shine
even from
behind the clouds
let it fill you
with hope
and warmth
it will lift you
into its arms
and protect you

Find joy
in the heart
of a star

I'm not lost
I've found me
I know where I am
and I'm waiting
to be discovered
waiting for you
to find me
peel through the layers
of memories, lessons, and flesh
and look into the heart of me
I'm not lost,
just undiscovered

Day 86

Where am I going?
What do I know?
I will find out
for I'm not alone
I see the light
it wraps around me
so bright
I leave no shadow
I walk
in that light
to my destination
knowing that I
am watched over

Day 85

Listen
to my voice
how does it
make you feel?
how would you
describe it?
is it warm and comforting
or cold and fearful?
where is it coming from?
tell me
does it wrap around you
comfort you?
you can hear me
but who
am I thinking of?
Listen
then tell me
how you feel
