Timing, Tamed

Timing determines fate
just as much as effort
But timing can be tamed
if fear becomes severed
from minds.


Give me an inch of space,
and I’ll line up to take my aim.
This jump shot is deadly,
so your D better be the same.

Swish, nothin’ but twine.
Nothin’ but a long-range blast.
The sky is rainin’ threes.
Damn, I’m droppin’ bombs so fast.

The score is runnin’ up for me,
eleven to zero, twenty to five.
This winnin’ big never gets old.
I take the ball, just one more driveā€¦

The Point

the point when one
stops worrying about
what other people think

is the point

at which true freedom
of soul can begin
its journey again

Another Page

A stiff expression,
no hint of grace.
Unlike her smile,
the warmest face.

He brings her down,
sometimes succeeds.
But I know she will
rise from his deeds.

She’s growing now,
I see the change.
Standing in awe,
my heart feels strange.

Beautiful words
about her written.
On another page
I admit I’m smitten.

The First Act

Blowing smoke is much too easy,
so why select that tired path?
Abandon all your fearful speech,
and this time choose to act.

Without Strings

I choose to love you
without strings,
but that doesn’t mean
they don’t exist.
I’ll give you my all,
my everything,
even though my
feelings do persist.

Peace Internal

praying in silence
even as the noisy world
goes on arguing
