Layers of Our Soul

Our soul,id-100358932
our conscious mind.

Has layers
on layers of emotions.

Compassion
followed by love.

Peace,
friendship,
feeling safe.

All layers in our heart.

At times,
life pulls these layers apart.

One after the other
they peel away.

Until love reveals pain,
pain turns to anger.

A soul beaten down
being raw in pain,
will only feel
anger and aversion.

Sustain your soul
every day.
Sustain a friend’s
soul every day.
With love and
compassion.

Dark Nights

Sitting casual, id-100252875
talking about his
drug addictions.

Four times
he overdosed.
Four times
he came back.

“No, I don’t
want to die.
But,
I don’t know
how to live,
either.”

Waiting for
divine voice,
giving strength
to break
addiction.

Every day
a new start
for change.

No more chasing;
finding happiness
and joy
without the needle.

Tomorrow,
tomorrow
enlightenment
will come.

A love affair

Seeing her,
leaning at the wall,
eager to please.

My desire;
feeling her
between my thighs

Straight lines,
curvy at the right
places.

You would call her
slick and powerful.

My heart starts throbbing
seeing her waiting
for me.

Thinking about her
all day.
Hiding pictures
on my computer.
Sneaking a peek
when nobody watches.

She is mine now,
Ready and eager.
Mounting her,
feeling leather
on my crotch.

Here we go,
up the hill,
my Bianchi,
an Italian beauty
of carbon.

Eagerly taking me
on my evening ride.
Leaving the day
behind.

Feeling wind
and freedom.
May the sunset
lullaby us into
an evening
of rest.

One Nation

Election hangover,
grieving sorrow.

Elated success,
beating the odds.

Division through
the core.

One Nation?

Nothing in common.

Painted into corners,
worldviews collide.

Where to go?

Egos larger than life.

Speaking hatred.
Hearts filled with fear.

Change, for the sake of it.
Protecting the status quo.

Transitions into unknown.
People fill the streets,
demonstrating to defend.

Where to go?

One Nation,
trusting middle ground.

Words, are past now,
actions count.

Symbiosis!

One Nation!

Where to go?

Hope,
hope the goodness
in people wins.

Stronger together
makes America great again.

Hate & Love

Two beasts
are sleeping
in your soul.

One beast
feeds on
anger.

Ready
to roar
and destroy.

Likes
tasting
blood,
and pain.

The other
beast:
love

Ready to
forgive,
to build.

This beast
desires
hugging
the world.

Harmony,
shelter,
compassion.

Both beasts
sleep
within
your soul.

Ready
to be
fed.

The one you
feed
will
dominate.

Be careful
whom
you
nourish.
