Where Was Your Peace?

Where was your peace?

Did thou look for it deep?

Was thou unable to reach?

Did thou relax when emotions were at their peak?

Or did the wave hit you to hard, sweeping thou of their feet?

Before you raised your hand, did you observe the ripples you could cause in eternity’s sand.

To loose your peace was never the plan, so where was it when you when you did the unspeakable.

When thou spoke words out of anger that caused sadness to one of God’s angels.

Unable to take them back they are forever intact. You lost your peace and paid the price for your lack of presence and your lack of awareness of how your actions were so selfish.

But pain is growth so grow dear one grow, the deeper you dig, the more room you have to know.

The Burning Truth

You lived your whole life being told the grass will be greener on the other side.

When you finally made it you realized to trap you they lied.

The emptiness in a heart is masked by the fullness of wallets and digits in a bank account.

Is this what life’s truly about?

Gaining money without a true purpose and selfless aim. Forsaking the love given true from a heart for changing and ever fading fame?

Living in luxury loosing touch with the the reality that there’s someone not to far away experiencing great suffering?

And where was your hand?

Grabbing for more I’m sure, I feel empathy for you. I see you don’t realize your predicament, moving forward with every step unaware you’ve stepped in a pit of quick sand.

Where was your ears?

As the cries for help echoed throughout the world, unto you they fell upon deaf ears.

For did you not see?

Tragedy after tragedy, Injustice after Injustice you’ve become blind unable to bare witness to man’s mass corruption.

It shall all pass and melt away. For on it’s journey to the light, the Truth burns through all illusions appearing to be in it’s way.

Beating Heart

My heart is hurting, but I am unsure of it’s cause.

I feel pain, pain that is sharp. Digging deep, deep as the piercing of flesh by a bear’s claws.

I do not speak, for there isn’t much to say. I hear word all day, in them there’s emptiness, theese words are hollow. What more should people say?

I see the sun rising, to me it brings hope as well as life. Hope to my heart, hope to my heart. That she may beat in peace and experience death without perishing. To be still in the center where there’s no end and no start.

Unclear Deathstination

Look up or look down and you may be found.

Coming ever closer, ever nearer to reality beyond it’s physical appearance of what the two eyes can see.

Searching within you find yourself in unexplored waters, making aquintance with parts of yourself that you never have met.

Never even knew existed.

Closing the door to numerous closets afraid of realizing your unfathomable depth.

To distract your mind you may find that you past the time by collecting invaluable valuables aquring insurmountable debt.

Not realizing the silly cyclic nature of living your days in and days out, in search of ways to get your greedy hands on fatter checks.

Until you wake up.

And you see the real.

Peaceful Times

Compassionate courage, to fight without raising arms

The biggest action is non action, to fight in the name of peace

Is to truly fight for the self and selfish desires, this is not the way

The only war that can bring peace is no war

Let’s learn to effectively communicate instead of terrorize and mutilate

Other human beings, who may have an opinion that’s opposing

Openness to all sides is the key and the doorway to higher learning

Once we can put all the petty differences aside

Think of our children’s paradise, we could create if we would unite

Come together for a common goal instead of self seeking individuals

This point it’s critical, humanity to become whole, one unified mind

Imagine operating as one human body instead of all these severed extremities

The future lies hidden in the present, in order to survive and thrive we must learn the past’s lessons.

Let’s Be humble be truthful and always remember to count our blessings.

Where to Turn

Driving my brain to the brink of insanity unable to grasp this perishable reality

I’ve been up, I’ve been down, but how do I walk straight, & be free now

Where to turn, for a sign of the light Where to turn, I look, it’s out of my sight

But I feel the heat rising inside of me, growing, guiding me on life’s eternal mysterious sea

If I keep turning, and turning, when, when shall I stop, I must stop in order to begin.

I must rise, I must rise, I must rise. There’s no more turning, stillness I’ve realized is life

I must rise, I Am forever ascending. Stillness in motion is my inner essence, I am alive now, ever living ever present, growing ever more aware of life’s beauty and all her blessings.

Sri Taris

Tides of Life

Surviving these times, riding the tides of life.

All of the lows and all of the highs.

Knowing no beginning unaware of any end.

There’s no need to cry just smile and grin.

The pain won’t last, it’ll pass in time.

Making us stronger and adding depth to life.

If you stay a float or if you let yourself go into the deep.

Either way you must ride the waves because the wave is you the wave is me.
