LP No. 05_2021_One

without pause or
doubt,
or fear of what may,
i pull
inexorably
to you.

the threads
of my life,
between nimble fingers,
tangled and knotted-
but we,
so far from besotted.

no way but up,
to fall into open arms.

no way but down,
to where we belong.

no way,
but the way
we forgot.

one path
to
a Love
destined.

one fall
to an
Oblivion
guaranteed.

one soul,
afire with hope &
purpose &
love.

songs of destiny, revealed

ringing out
in the silent corners of my soul:
a joyous cacophony of love
and pain.

mothers call
and fathers cry….
over a future turned inside out.

looking back
across the storm


we must not fear.


we must not fail.

we sail upon
their very tears…


we must not fail


we must not fear

let us,
together,
take our struggles
and our hate,
and our fear….

let us bond these pieces
with love’s joy.


let us make our fathers
and
our mothers proud,


let us, together,
put them to rest
in peace

we must not fear.

Rise

fresh
and new.

tested and
true.

the future
awaits no one,
but you.

time fails
the uninitiated,
drowning young souls
in longing,
and want.

where are your
shiny scars
bearing lessons
ne’er forgotten?

where are your hopes,
but swinging strangely
like black fruit
in the empty breeze?

come lay your head
on this bed of ash feathers
and arise again;

remember
fearlessness.

come give yourself
unto your birthright,
come dance within my flame.

never quench
your rightful desire,
come learn your true name.

come,
and rise
again.
