Move

Hey. You! Yeah! You.
Move. Take a step.
Take a chance. Move.
Buy a new pair
of dancing shoes.
Find a different
groove. Don’t be
afraid to lose.
When you play,
pay your dues.
Move. It’s much
better when you
get to choose.
Keep on dancing
for your love is
everlasting. Move.
There is nothing
for you to prove.

No Pain

When the pain comes,
I don’t hide. I show
myself. The pain comes
in waves – to say hello
and goodbye. I wave
back. I tell myself;
it will be okay. Today,
I go without feeling
pain – with nothing
but good thoughts –
inside my brain. Now,
I feel good. I feel free
as I walk today’s path.
I walk to a distant tree;
I take small steps to
a new life and I forget
about the pain I felt.

Transcendence 

The steps I’ve made

and the years I’ve seen

Allowed me to appreciate

the time in-between.

The days go by;

my clock keeps ticking

Faster and faster

to match my thinking.

Thoughts and memories

fade into the abyss,

Leaving behind

what will be missed.

But the changes

that I see help me

Envision a new

place to be.
