Wildflowers grow

I didn’t know
Where it would go
From the corner
Of 5th and Grove

When the wind blew
A chance to choose
This much I knew
Instincts pursued

I seldom travel
These streets of battle
A life once handled
Without being trampled

Mindful on old roads
Where wildflowers grow
Sowing seeds of hope
In destitute zones

Disruptions 🦠

Isn’t it all strange
We go about our days
Promoting change
Then it comes our way

Changes the entire game
Impacts our day-to-day
As we struggle to stay sane
Secure most basic things

Some are calling names
Others are placing blame
Witless, we’re filling graves
Isn’t it all truly a shame

March 8, 2020

We have this day, International Women’s Day
Yet in many ways, we remain chained
Still fighting for gender equality of our own
Outside of primary caretakers in the home

Fastened to ridiculous ideological beliefs
Our unwritten bylaws objecting power seats
The rest in the world has had proven success
US fails precedence to elect a woman president

Rough roads ~ #poem

 

May your path be deliberate
As you travel the forsaken roads
Following intuition where it goes
For a chance at something different

May you have all of your faculties
As you consider the pros and cons
Avoid being played as someone’s pawn
Restricted and taken as a casualty

May the benefits outweigh the risks
As you enter the uncharted territories
Navigate competition with your lorries
On adventures you don’t want to miss

May you have the courage to go
May you have the wisdom to know
May you have the endurance to grow
Until you’ve made it, your very own

2020 A new decade ~ #poem

Golden shiny Happy New Year

A new decade
Is on its way
Beckoning change

At the end of the day
No need to look away
Let alone be afraid

It’s time to strip away
Pretentious charades
Hate that pervades

Let go of the shame
Relinquish any blame
Allow animosity to fade

Until all that remains
Is yours to take claim
In humanitarian gains

Give out accolades
Watch what you say
Hear what’s conveyed

It’s as easy as A B C

Stock photo, We heart it

When I’m struggling to see
All the happiness you bring
Best harness that energy
Then focus it solely on me

Let’s see if I can make it easy
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything
It’s like A B C and do re mi

Do you get what that means
A B C, easy as one, two, three
Doe Ray Me Far Sew La Tea
The loving basis of everything

If we are truly meant to be
We’re all we’ll ever want or need
I already know that you agree
Show me and make me believe

Be greedy with your responsibility
Make me your number 1 priority
Protect and honor me as your queen
For respect & servitude as my king

What sets us apart

ART BY JUN CEN

Everyone has a story to tell
About how hard they fell
In and out of loves’ peril

The masses seem to give-up
Rather than hold-on they breakup
While we continue to makeup

How do we hold it together
When others dismiss their forever
During ominous, stormy weather

What sets us apart
When lost in angers’ dark
Our strong and forgiving hearts
