i walked out to the curb
the street was coming towards me
the street was going away
i rode a small bicycle
i travelled left
i travelled right
went around the block
my home was still there
Looking at my life…
I have traveled
From place to place
Hauling an electric bass
An electric guitar
Just singing my heart out..
The people like the music
Musicians want to join up
People want to hear it played
Over many, many years..
The changes were real
Some of your people moved far, far away
You were to be reunited sooner then later
Months later your names were called
Yet, you were not freed to travel
Lies had been told to you
You were young and therefore believed
Definition of TYRANNY
1. : an oppressive, harsh, or unjust act : a tyrannical act <children who had suffered tyrannies>
2. : arbitrary, unreasonable, or despotic behavior or use of authority: nazi tyranny
Kindhearted children of yesterday…
Here is a word that you know
Undue suffering placed upon you
This has been someone’s sick show
I have worn many shoes in my lifetime
Consider that I am a man
I can write this on a single page
A woman would need a book to list all of hers!
At first I was barefoot…
Little baby shoes
Sometimes people would bronze that first pair
Later, they end up in a closet
Those Little People
By my image
Surprised by my humour
No, he’s big… He must be mean
Afraid of some muscle
He will kick my ass
Look at that long hair
He’s a hippie, a freak or maybe on drugs…
I used to dream…
Those came true
I lived those dreams
What Does It Take?
What does it take
To pickup a phone
You needed to give me a call
Why do you wait
It’s almost too late
To return a friendly call
The years pass by
We don’t communicate
Are you so painfully shy..
You read the news
I have become very ill
Tick tock – Now try a call
I lost my boys
Won’t say they were good boys
I can’t say that
For the official record…
Those boys were the absolute best!
Two boys are always on my mind
Both were fine Baseball players
Both would spend time with me
Both looked up to me
Both have been gone for many years
Anger vs. Inner Peace – The Choice is Yours
I am not Dr. Phil. – I don’t need to be him, to help some people here.
To Conquer Your Anger Is To Gain Freedom!
I have spent decades on my own self-improvement. My personal energy is fire based. Balance is a key for me to live in harmony. That old Yin and Yang approach.
Too many flames can burn everything down. Fire energy does provide warmth. Others may ‘bask in the glow’. A good time can be had by all who accept this. Some reject the sharing. To each their own.
We all are susceptible to some anger. There is short, reactionary anger. Traffic problems for example. The more harmful form, is the longterm anger. Childhood issues that haunt for decades. Divorce baggage. Get the idea?
Inner Peace. A person can spend a lifetime seeking solace. Modern living is ripe with conflict. So many people busy playing God. Enough evolution to play it. Insufficient development to walk it. Most would be better off, to step back and relax.
Your being has a center. This core is omnipresent. Always calm, always present. A person who is ‘centered’.Has found this part of themselves.
Part of your journey. Will be to seek out your own center. It is there right now.
Should you meditate. The quiet can reveal yourself…. to you!
For the moment… You are now aware.
That is a good beginning…
Anger is weak. Yes, this is true. Although the emotion is strong, the vibration is negative. Over a long period of time, one’s health can be adversely influenced.
How do I know this? What gives me the right, to preach to you?
Simple. The answer is… I was once you!
If you have read this far. There is your own interest. Maybe, I am full of crap. Read on.
