Find Something

Find something to do –
to keep you busy –
to keep you sane.
Find anything to do –
just don’t do nothing.
Nothing can keep you
from doing something.
Anything is better than
nothing. Don’t stay
still – fill your time
finding something
to do: be quick, but
don’t hurry
. Don’t
worry. You will find
your way: yourself.
You will find some –
thing that keeps you
going – living. You
will find something
that will become
nothing. You must
create resistance,
listen, and lessen
the distance between
Hell and Heaven.

We Will See

One day, we will see.
We will see everything
we have done unfold
in front of our eyes.
We will see life and
death walk side-by-side
our entire lives. We
will see seeds become
trees, boys become men,
men become husbands,
husbands become fathers,
fathers become grand-
fathers, nothing become
something. We will see
something become no-
thing. One day, we will
see that we should be
happy the way life is.
One day, we will see
that our life wasn’t free.
I believe we will see
everything that we need.

The Willing

Are you willing to fight
and risk your own life?
Is your will strong enough
when times become tough?
Are you willing to love
those who’ve hurt you?
Are you willing to risk
losing your ego to find
the meaning of your life?
Are you willing to fail
when hate might prevail?
Okay, now ask yourself:
Am I willing? Am I
worthy?
Before you think,
know you are. Don’t worry.



Another Day

What’s another day? It depends
on who you ask. It’s all relative.
Go ahead; ask a relative. Sure,
it’s just 24 hours: 1,440 minutes.
Some may say, it’s another day.
Others say to not think ahead.
Today is a day and tomorrow
is another. That is where it gets
tricky. Who knows if we will
see another day? I guess we
will have to see another day
for any of us to confidently say.

Spring Healing

Sunshine will soon shimmer.
The scorching sun will remind
us that we are at the mercy
of Mother Earth as Father Time
takes its course. It’s cold now,
but you just wait. Not before
long, the cold will grow old
and be gone. I see us feeling
more free in the coming weeks.
I can see new beams of love
coming from above. I know
there are good days ahead
with more light to be shed.
