Who is transforming who?

In light, in spirit, who is transforming who?
Holly books bathed in ink, in tears, teach us to believe
Is this your path? Is this what you want to achieve?
Or are you deceived or manipulating too?

Since the beginning of time and words
We balance between faith and knowledge
Aware of the cross, the snake, the swords
Always advancing, always on the edge

As life sunsets, shadows retire
For our wisdoms progress, aspire
Even when your light flickers, whither
You know, everyone dies, all philosophers

Ask: Who am I to give you advice?
For my life unspoken could be your shadow
So run, move on, throw the dice
As I do, before it is you who sucks my marrow

I still have no claim to sanity nor folly
For in myself the truth lies, all Godly, all Christ
I just don't know which is the truth, which is holy
But I live open, all loving, all spiced

I can change myself if I listen to an inner light
I can't change you, nor should I do
For such wisdom starts all fights
And in the end, who is transforming who?






To the man without faith

To the man without faith
I say to thee
Keep on living, keep on leaving
For your own is in simplicity

Faith is mostly born in passion
For life, for love, for others
While most can keep your attention
Few will make you take orders

Orders require a heart with a mission
Whether in the night or in the sun
Few of us carry such intention
For we live like if the day hadn't begun

Are you immortal in faith?
Or simply faithfully mortal?
Keep the questions under your breath
Who knows, they might just take you to the portal

To the man without faith, I say to thee
Stay you way, keep your course
No one can tell what is privy
Unless you're ready for the discourse






The Rose and The Blood

From the beginning we knew not
That our destiny lies hidden
In a Rose without a thought
Born in blood and linen

Had we known, we would trust
That two half stars
Will touch each in a thrust
Showing that none is far

We so want to be close
But many barriers we erect
For the life that has me clothe
Make me believe in no defect

We sin with every breath
Without thinking or malice
For whom we are in depth
Is but the result of a chalice




Of Stars and Eagles

We all sleep under stars abound
And yet few ever see the eagle
A fresh mind receive all light around
Without thinking of the horrible

For detractors fear the bright
Yet explain it in terms unknown
Foolish we are to think tight
Yet to limits we are drawn

The soul will never be satisfied
To know few stars and one eagle
We desire a life electrified
Always joyful, never feeble

I will pass on, I will move up
But never those stars will see again
As for the eagle, without refrain
I tell you farewell, never give-up





Mini Ode to Stupidity

The storm brews its own filth
So few of us truly know why
And yet all involved in the pain with
That we can't help but cry

With words so violent
That each express sadness
And tempers no longer silent
Brings us all to madness

Can I question this reality?
Or into my life do I let it set
Even if it makes obvious my frailty
Cause on others I have to bet

I claim knowledge and wisdom to survive
And yet in this stupidity I get involved
So much so that both no longer strive
Forcing my soul, unfinished, to dissolve




Love and Life are the same mysteries

I spent my life looking for love
And only found live repeated
Within the few years before the above
I've never felt defeated

In this search, I do not claim sanity
As in life no one has
If we did, we would see clarity
As life and love always was

I aim to live and love in one time
Not making difference of the two
For what I aim is the life prime
Screaming and thinking of you

I shall live and leave until I die
Cause to find a mystery
You need to keep an open eye
Unless you prefer misery

I might never find what I seek
And no matter, the search is fun
A fun not for the meek
For to succeed, always run







Lost in Life

Loosing oneself in life is not for all
You need to think, love and dream
But without it, you can't know all
For loosing oneself in life is a stream

You start in life young, unaware,
You walk a path ever shifting
Often you see joy or even despair
But at no time should you loose the ring

As you age, challenges abound
But all you need is trust
Trust in you, in life unbound
As everyday would be discussed

Your future never was written
For if it was you would be gone
It's up to you, by it to be smitten
For you need to be lost in life, to be done




Try

A word of hope, taken for granted
Try. Take a feeling that we can
When yet to be enemies, hated
Turn you into derision, a Pan

In one word, learning our potential
Better than a whish, opening a mind
Coupled with commitment, brutal
Serves without making us blind

All start in crystal beginning
Without shame, nor with fear
Trying great rather than dying
To the test they hold clear

Should I choose a life destined?
Aiming to listen to all but I?
Or with thinking, life pristine
Giving my all, in all, always try



I read

I read a lot, to learn all
Out of which come questions
So plentiful, I often fall
But they do keep my attention

In learning all, joy come forth
Never alone, always with sorrow
It is however my worth
That I push to tomorrow

For in the delays, I learn some more
Finding solace in the minute
Is not what I seek, what I adore
I need the future to be astute

So I live to the fullest
Either in rest, or at a Ball
I have no fear, no hate, no haste
As I learn all, question all





Friendship of a thousand flowers

Once, flowers would rule the world
they talked, dance and stood pretty
Their role, for all eyes would unfold
Without speaking they showed their destiny

Some were blue, out choice of passion
Others were red, without any sense
The yellows shined without definition
And the rest were simply in colour, dense

For all their lives, one reason stood
Needing nothing, just the sun, the earth, survive
And their passion, without being understood
Required them to talk, to befriend, to be alive

I've met many along the years, as a doer
Never seeing what I was missing
Was the friendship of a thousand flowers
Unfaded, undestined, always kissing





Cosmic Spring

Cosmic spring comes into fashion
Once a year without fault or notion
That it is here, present, alive
A pre-condition for us to survive

Springs never comes in silence
It explodes and overtake your sense
Its beauty resides in the light understated
For who are we to claim that it can be rated?

I hope to live many such springs
When my life, my soul, rings
And one day when the cosmic calls
I hope to remember not to fall

A spring is magical, caustic
For it reminds us the last antic
Calling us to the forefront of our lives
Telling us to go forth, to strive




Changing into Gold

Of the few years we've left with, once born
Very few will deserve to be lived in pity
Don't ever grow as you're told, never mourn
Sometimes you'll feel alone but never lonely

At the beginning of time, seeking the stone
You faced doubt, joy, both linked, always
Today, to date, you've changed, a life to hone
Cause you'll discuss, argue and live in days

There has never been a time better, stronger
When once faces destiny, palms upward for ever
How to take it, no one can gather, you're older
And time who heals will never remember

Your award lies in your course, your path
For all five-roses blooms, express and pass
With few eyes ever contemplating, ever seeing
That you have changed, evolved, gold turning




Chained Potential

Of all the people on earth, far and near
Few realise their depth, their potential
The reason? From lack to fear
Abound when you ignore the dial

We're all born with many destinies
That we choose to ignore and follow
All are good, but among the manies
Choose those that lead to joy or sorrow

The question that you need to ask
If you believe yourself unworthy
Is as simple as the end of the task
Will you go there or be whinny?

There is no two ways about it
It's though, it's rough, it's you
Whether you live, die or ignore it
Either way, your potential is in you




Another's eyes

If you see your future in an another's eyes
You see life, you see your soul, often questioned
Another is always the centre of your tears, your cries
But without them, life remains unlived, undestined

Even though we don't know each other yet
And age tears into the fabric of our worlds
Your eyes says that you should feel, bet
That another's eyes is friendship bold

Your life is ahead, your past behind, forever
What you've written can make you, break you
But as you move forward, in hope of the better
There is nothing to stop you, to frame you

See your life in stride, explore your heart
Cause few of the friends you cross along the path
Will know you, will love you, and all will part
In the end, strong you'll stand, without wrath




You lead me, light

You lead me, you fill me, light
In Christ, the path you show before me
Without fear, hate, pretense, fight
I fulfill every dream, every destiny

I refuse to believe in hate, in tears
Their value has no defense, no role
For me, for all, life will not disappear
Unless we forget the light, the pole

I've waited forever to defend my life
To eternity's relentless dismissal
That we don't matter, whether husband or wife
For we are, in colour, in beauty, eternal

In light, can you see the truth?
Pretending, ignoring, forgiving
For I tell you, I beg you, youth
Your life thought in vain, yet never ending



Ordinary Angel

Ordinary Angel, you live a life
Of tortured joy, of joyful pain
You see daylight not as a wife
But as a maiden without an aim

You claim ignorance of destiny
Clinching in your heart, how awful
Be aware, don't you know you're not ordinary
For in God your are made, you are full

In the morning of your days
You cried, we all did, a first breath
Your soul finally uncovered, finally ablaze
Your destiny showing its depth

But today you go about, you walk
Thinking how bizarre, how odd
That all go towards a destiny, all talk
As you remain silent, without a nod

Ordinary Angel, your mind a fool
Shows you a life that is not yours
Remove one word, change the school
For an Angel you are, never poor





Life

Life is not a school, there are no classrooms
But it's the best teacher I've ever had
Listen, the wind tells you to bloom
Look, the sea eternal shows you not to be sad

Each encounter teaches something about you
Even if you don't see it, absorb it, or make it yours
Few days pass with such learning, too much ado
We take for granted tomorrow's doors

I've met many, and yet few have mattered
Not of their choice, blame the uncontrolled ego
Had I given attention, keep a mind unbothered
More would have I learned, less would I forego

The world is coming to end, everyday
Without tears, passion or hate, time controls
Our life, visions, emotions, it is payday
Should you have paid attention? Played many roles?

I don’t know about you, nor would you about me
But the universe in us is questioning, agreeing
That we’re here to change it, to make it free
Isn’t that worth living? Isn’t that worth dying?





The Meaning of Life

Going into my past, I saw myself contemplating the moon
As I made my way back, I saw someone saving brothers
No doubt, in two images, life showed me her tune
It's meaning is in me as long as I love all others

There is no place for fate, for doubt or regret
When all you think about is if your place in time
Brings about love, change, passion, respect
If this is your truth, then turn and say 'I am'

Life has a meaning, of that we are sure
For all alternatives, are just not appealing
But what is it? What do we have to endure?
To know such truth, to know such glowing

I know mine with certainty, I've seen it, am living it
That meaning that keeps me up, shows me daylight
In every step, every thought, I open my eyes and say 'that's it'
It's a meaning for all to share, one too easy, one so bright

You see, your life in all others belong, that's the epiphany
In an orchard it came to me, stopped me, blinded me
I swirled and changed, looking at all, for all to see
That's the meaning of life, your life, in all simplicity




Black Parade

Of any sight, any single scenery
Seeing the black parade in all its glory
Has to be the single point, the single memory
Where all beliefs stops, all doubt vanishes, finally

Each procession transports hope and despair
Of time passing by in all justice
Just as blind, balanced, and ultimately unfair
For you are a child, still believing in the fleece

Through the eyes of our youth, that black parade
Seems slow, heavy, literally unworldly
How can someone you love lay dead?
Since in the morning you were both bubbly?

How to understand the loss? The sorrow?
You are a child, what you know lies ahead
In this sunset your life still leads to tomorrow
Not in today, and never in that black parade





A Stranger’s Smile

We react more to a stranger's smile
Than to those from whom we love
A reality, a truth, you've known for a while
Beyond your control, beyond the dove

Strangers offer comfort away from time
They offer split-joy in that second
And fade, join oblivion, leaving but a dime
Of untamed desire, of unanswered questions

They see you mainly as you see them
Just passing, diving, ignoring your reality
And yet thinking your thoughts, your love, your blame
And at the threshold, they fall without a worry

In the wisdom of old, in ancient thought
Strangers are like shadows on that cave's wall
They are you, moving forth, ignoring the naught
In fact there is no one else, no one at all





That old barrack

That old barrack sitting on the hill
Has seen roaring battles and life in glory
Covered in light, darkness, human will
It sits unashamed of its past beauty

What has it seen that can't be spoken?
Or known by mere mortals? mere men?
The tribulations of squares and circles unwritten?
Or the daily life, ordinary, without mayhem?

It is unclear as its walls remain silent
And the memories all but contradict
A story that is better left to the indifferent
Who see it day in, day out, mainly ignoring it

That old barrack sitting on the hill
Is in our lives, is our lives, is us
Never repenting, never lying, somehow tranquil
Blessed and cursed, as we are thus








Gender War

There is a war at hand that no one should win
It's been with us in all seconds, under our breath
Based on differences of opinions, mainly from within
We're all part of it, cheering, fearing, till we part death

It's the disconnect that attracts us, keeps us alive
Of the many dreams today, none is truly stronger
Than the search of a companion to live, to thrive
Walk alone, yes, we can. We just don't know the error

Since the garden, with one language for thought or desire
We've changed, lost our ways and found another
We're still searching for a soul before we pass, retire
For beauty in all nature is mainly in the other

I'll never know your truth, how could I seek it?
Like an unknown Grail, it stands before me
My sunset eyes searching from universe to whit
Is it you? Is it me? Always at war? Always we?





Part Devil, Part Angel

I live as an angel, as a devil, without hate
And yet, I have no reason to doubt that I'm either
Some know it's fate, some know it's faith
But to know, you need to weather

We're born to be innocent at all ages
But in us resides a double meaning
That makes us act, mostly in stages
Sometime winning, sometime loosing

Admire those with certainty in their heart
For they know the unknowable without
Search their path, explore their thought, fast
As life gives you all, often with a touch of doubt

At the gate, certainty will arise
Not because but in spite of you
Based on your love and how you despise
The other, for they are in you too





Everyone a Philosopher

Destiny forces us to become wise with age, no less
A stream yet at odd with universal law, with nature
For isn't wisdom universal, timeless?
If that we knew, we'd be one, able to endure

The world shows us its way, from east to west
Deciding, if we let it, our fate, our future, all
Never asking, never doubting, never at rest
Dragging us forward, against Will, till we fall

Few know that truth, of day and night,
Rest in the knowledge circle, to the point
And yet such truth resides in books, bright
Available to all, always open, never disappoint

Wisdom is a wheel, turning in eternity
Forced by timeless eon, sparking activity
Recognised once past, never before, pity
For should we see it coming, evolved we'd be




Better Star
Who is born under a better star?
The other it seems, without fault
But your claim, your star, is far
Days are better than you were taught

Choosing rather than letting heaven
Decide for you, whether high and low
That your path goes left, right, uneven
Take the road on high, and never bow

Life is green, no matter which field you run in
Your call deepened in your mind, in your state
And in the relative absence of within
Your decision stands alone, always on test

We're told not to question the above
Never test, never judge, for it is returned
Your wish dies, your soul melts, in that stove
And questioning, at which point the wrong turned

A better star calls for your dream
To be stated, defined and boasted
For should you not select your stream
That star will remain alone, bright, unphased






Age and Time

In delusion, we keep Age and Time connected
Lead by the silence of a deserted mine
For the one who owns his thought, all life is united
In the struggle to aim, reach for the sublime

In age, we advance with steps enchanted
For the future remains fore, forever
A mystery, by the Gods, was granted
Which we swear never to sever

In time we promise to deliver
A remembered life, proud in insight
For the future, like our past, a river
Brings forth the best, the light

Few are true to the day of their birth
Glowing in awe through loved eyes
When at the door we enter the earth
Living behind all but some cries

In Age and Time, most regret
That the two are true friends
Showing us that we matter yet
Only if, of our sins we cleanse





The Mirror

Near where I stand, stands a mirror
Reflecting someone I once knew
We were friend, living in honour
Till sin took us away in its brew

Our eyes in tear cross each other
Wondering who is wrong, who betrayed
The child full of life, knowing better
But we are he, shameful and dismayed

Reflect on a mirror, see you soul exposed
Few actions in life can be so revealing
Even a friend can only offer a view, imposed
The mirror wins, cold, bright, frightening

Our eyes have stopped, glaring back
They are the same, looking, deepening
Overshadowing the other, no one fights back
For no one wins when you're mirroring





Admiration

Admire the one with a relentless desire
To explore, live and forget that tomorrow
Will come discreetly, to those who admire
One who will never another's life borrow

Admiration placed, misplaced, often engenders
A flat world where none are the wiser
Keeping souls and minds enticed to wonder
Why others can't see what they admire

In turn, to those not under that spell, I pray
That logic and questions rule your day
For if it wasn't in the search that you seek
You'll be lost, undesired and best among the meek

Admire flowers, trees, family and friends
Without being lost in certainty, without question
You'll wear the future in pride till it ends
As it never does, you'll rule your dominion




The Rose to the Bee

The Bee and the Rose debated life
In a spring sun, bright yet hallow white
A discussion strange, heated, possibly rife
Where each viewed nature in its own rite

I fly all day scenting, searching for you
And here you stand with your mother
Pretty in armour, but what do you do?
Your role is to serve me, to make me better

You are right, I stand in family, holding five petals
Holding secrets of old, hidden thought, lost in time
Secrets that life's worthy seeks, secrets of metals
Heed them, to transform you, to make you sublime

I see, the work I do while you bend in the wind
Serves a purpose greater that our lives combined
A secret of procreation where each intertwined
Are defined as individuals, yet free, yet kind

Holly Bee, Light you see when in such talk you enter
And I see yours with each First word pronounced
Our lives are separate, gendered yet, in centre
Both great, both humbled, both announced





Promise

Promise yourself that you'll live
A time worthy of your descendants
Showing colours, standing attractive
To you, to fate, without being absent

Promise you'll be true to your soul
Listening, talking, yet often ignoring
Knowledge that will make you whole
From morning to the scarlet evening

Promise yourself a future to remember
Designed in my arms, oh happy dreams
You're eyes wide opened, thinking forever
Breathing, touching, holding your screams

Promise you'll pass on wisdom and hope
Surrender to laughter and admiration
To the new soul, in dream you thought
Now sitting in your arms, now your bastion




God, Family, Friends

We all fall into a trilogy, of angles, of Lis
Centered in God, Family, Friend
No flower, no triangle, expresses this
Better than what we can't defend

A triangle without end, strongest in universe
Each angle, repeating itself, ever forming in three
All human emotions, in a simple verse
Leading to our end, shameless, unique but free

White Lis with petals of colour sweet
Intrigued, seeing us wondering, no! Regretting
That no life, short or long, ends without wit
As a heart strives when it smiles, when laughing

We ponder life's meaning without thinking
Where angles, petals define each step, each second
First among the bests, without ever yielding
A trilogy well defined defines us, makes us strong



Old Stones

Old stones contain the life of all
Sitting on each other's top, a family tree
Of dissents, arguments, love and recall
Deep in tradition, focused on destiny

Each stone a corner, six faces opinion
A voice like thunder, piercing by swords
Breaking the silence of time, without definition
But one given by each stone, given in hordes

Olds in earth facing up, young in clouds
Each a force in the dynasty, an individual
Yet meek, weak like no other, but proud
Chasing a dream, always in reach, tall

Ancient principles form the foundation
Of a story disappearing in each birth
Replaced by new stories, a new opinion
A library in stones, young to old, made of earth



Tree Divinity

Trees are divine, in their own rights
Living, procreating, turning a leaf
Editing out the pain of our fights
Against ourselves, minds still stiff

A tree’s wisdom equals each root
Silly, we trample with each step
Unaware that under each foot
Stands wisdom beyond us yet

As the tree bends in the talkative wind
It listens and learns, argues and convinces
His brothers, his sisters, for all to find
That soundless truth, our sins rinses

I roam the forest among divine trees
Thinking how great we are to realise
That without majesty, without breeze
We're but imagining that this is paradise




You Are

We met around a feast, tabled, in people
Focused on each other, life at its best
We talked much, we were able
Listening sometimes, ready to test

We exchanged dreams, refocused a thought
Prayed that the night stayed with us yet
But the moon, another lost scene, well fought
Gave birth to light, we felt we needed rest

Remembering a smile, a scent, and spark
That you brought, that your voice gave
When far in country, when light grew dark
You let me talk, express, often forgave

Keeping your fight in your heart
You show others how to be bright
Without thinking that your Art
Is what defines you, give you sight

Claiming ignorance whether real or not
I wasn't there when life gave you turn
But remember, that heart of yours in knot
You are loved, desired, you always burn



Standing Soul

Very few souls know their Time
For to be so, listen-in you ought
But for you, a struggling mind sublime
Showed the rest a battle to be fought

In nineteen starry earth revolutions
You discovered a world not to regret
But how can you? When the notion
To be whole, to be old, resisted the test

Forgive our limits in knowing true
For such test, we never knew
We listened to a heart deep blue
Reframed impressions steadily grew

You killed time, painted a coloured notion
That all are divine, for all have that option
To express fear, youth, possible intention
Without claiming sanity, free in admiration

Fighting impressions, the breath had talked
Of knowledge tainted, did we judge really?
Realise that at leaving, before all walked
We thanked a standing soul, for eternity



Of Graceful Time

When a name states a state
You appear all Angelique, all true
In force and strength, a fate
You chose, nothing can subdue

Beauty in deep reaches far
A voice strong and sweet
Manners of a knight, a star
Strength of a dame, asking wit

What do you seek in such quest?
A friend, a soul, a mirror of you?
Don't you know that you test
All that pass, all that are close too?

Be still, reflect on your life timeless
Never seek, never stop, remain in you
For never alone you can be, unless
You chose grace over time, over you




A Sister in thousands

Born in our hearts, never to you
Carried to terms, without sun, forever
It's not fair, not right, what did you do?
Love was not the issue, life was over

You lived in thoughts, a soul of many starts
And ever since you came without a name
I've been searching for you in a thousand hearts
Asking questions, finding no one to blame

Seeing your eyes in everyone's colour
Your voice reaches me in all but one tongue
You walk pass in another's odour
Your soul connects to all, like a song

You're my sister, and yet I pass alone
If one lives in others, memories carrying on
Then you are still here, smiling, anger prone
Close to each other, an angel, never down

We meet again and again, Star bound
Finding similitude in discussion
That we never had, till you I've found
In a separate heart, left without reason



Trusted Time

Looking back to our people of old
Our sense deepens, a need for home
Love unquestioned, always bold
Between ages, written in tome

A library of emotions, of stories
Passes on with each crossed threshold
Few daring to realise that worries
Yet to one another in life we hold

Eternity lives on, in passed-on eyes
Thought remain forever in that book
By all thoughts, all dreams, ever wise
A question forever silenced, in one look

We knew them in trusted time
Both older, seen by a child
Who's heart stood still, sublime
Each time they spoke, with each smile



Crowded Orchard

Walking among apples, pears and others
One can never be lonely, not slightly so
Unless by choice, to punish, why bother
Realise you're one in many, and grow

In the crowd with time rises an epiphany
That all you see, live for but one
In sadness, joy, sometimes felicity
Where noise is but a song, a swan

Should you question your soul
More often than your mind
Keep a secret so sweet, so whole
That your life you'll spend to find

That secret, few to none can tell
Resides deep in depth, often dark
Hidden from wish, or a bare spell
That to find, just make your mark

For you see, in the single star
Crowded in blue, darker still
You live among giants, and afar
You tower over them, braver still



Wisdom Wheel

Among the souls of ghosts past
Reside a point, all blinding
In which we blend, we fast
Believing, feeling, often dying

That point, that circle, that zero
Forcing us to evolve in thinking
To a point when no return, no hero
Can search it without learning

In second pass, dense thoughts
Evolving knowledge, one understands
That to win a game of draughts
You need to call on you, wit in hands

Reach back to the point, angel white
We've evolved where wisdom and heart
Surrounds our soul, without fight
We surrender, we are at our start



Spirit and Things

Evolving between two truths
Our mind chooses convenience
Over reality, believing our youth
For it is easier than penance

Few truth give joy and pain
Than accepting who we are
Divided between sun and rain
Living away from our soul, afar

The material attracts our mind
Without shame, calling us real
Absent for a second, blind
We follow the siren downhill

The spirit with shame strength
Reminds us in that same second
That all we need is within, a length
We often refuse to take, to bond

Between spirit and things, the choice
Is always easy, for never undecided
We go forward, thinking in one voice
This is me, this is mine, unabridged




So Few Words

An expression called, can tell you
What a person thinks in deep
With a few tears, without ado
You guess the song, fall and weep

But without hesitation, nor fear
Words can break walls, wash fire
Carrying in their hearts, dear
The soul of one, a hidden desire

Oh, words devoted to passion
Few carry your weight, your life
Than those spoken in devotion
In hate, love, to no one, to a wife

A Family carry the belief that feelings
Unexpressed, hidden, far from sight
Can be replaced by words, of all dealings
Without trace, a sound, never fight

Life remain in words unspoken, undead
Deep in the silent soul of the deaf
Who before sight would claim, they said
To a man of few words life gives the clef



Why did you draw a flower?

From your depth in mismatched height
Asking questions, many of which burn
In all fairness, often taken aback
Admiring your simplicity, your turn

In drawings and songs, a life you take
Dancing to colours, singing to self
Awakening with each breath you make
Learning all, questioning all, an elf

I ponder if you've realised the future
That each thought, fleeting, entrenched
Creates in each second, all to endure
Your core, your soul, your life drenched

Sitting at the table, a day among others
Expressing yourself, in words of all power
Puzzled by a drawing, a shape, a colour
But, you said, why did you draw a flower?




Love Much. Laugh More

Falling is the first step
Living it, the second
Leaving it, the third
Recovering, the fifth
Falling again, the sixth

Love is just as life, evolving
Eternal for one year, then gone
An early childhood, teething
Ending in pain, all but done

Seen by an eye fleeting
Never searching, often seeking
The one believed, to be deserving
Of a fall, joyful but never ending

That step taken leads to days
In which each soul in truth tells
Of a better world, without daze
Where each heart is as bells

Time talking fast, taking toll
Takes the dove away, or dead
For without caring, a grand Ball
Always end-up alone, enough said

That same clock gives us hope
For one day, those painful chests
Will lift, sun and stars taking note
And you'll rest, then take those steps

For you can't stop, it is written
That if you want to be alive: Love
There is no other way, be smitten
Love much, laugh more, but love




The Grass Blade

At the end of a garden
Lives a grass blade, strange.
Thinking, isn't grass even?
Not so, for here we change

Bending tall in the azure wind
Proud to be, aware of its age
The blade talked, to a twin
Alike in colour, yet each a sage

Hear him on a light bright day
Telling you to live as he does
Deeply rooted, with a clear way
A better wizard, better than Oz

Wisdom and fun in stride, our blade
Talking to neighbors, to a friend
Repeating all thoughts, as said
When the blade speaks, fend

I saw him last on Tuesday, wait
It could have been his twin yet
Strangely, joy or sadness weight
A heart without him is a day unset



Honour Soldiering on

Why does honour closes when tested
A deep sentiment of fate, a burden
Follow a thought tranquil yet blamed
As failures occurs, we regret often

As shoulders covered in symbols
Express honour more than wishes
For the mark of a soldier, falls
In our heart when it switches

The rest, without clouds to protect
Live in deepened sorrow, why work
With no sense in its core, we object
To be taken for granted, to burk

Standing tall in line, headstrong
Covered in memory, forgotten history
Of past gents, whose pains never wrong
Showed us to refrain blaming glory

Honour is for all who seek, value it
A taking unquestioned, never undecided
For at every cross road, we either sit
Or we live, we die, always honoured



Starry Death

Few hurts live in one's heart forever
Than the death of love, of a loved one
Passing through heaven, sweeter
Without memory, dying of a swan

Since life rolls in music, crescendo
The lonely soul aims for more
A scent left alone without you. So?
Do we care when one takes the door?

There is no excuse for little thought
In taking care of one's own, one's flow
Lonely in our water, a future bought
In torn thoughts, with tears, without bow

All passes on, from dust to star
Of all nights, mightier, ever brighter
Without death life doesn't go far
But every shadow is hated, how clever



Divine Reality

It is the claim of all fields
That to attain divinity
One must seek, yield
A soul imperfect, sorry!

Standing unfinished
Life's aims is destiny
Relatively undiminished
In unity with all Glory

What if one doesn't want
To reach perfection but
Rather prefers the swamp
Of knowledge uncut?

Starts with choosing
Knowledge or unity
Rather than granting
All in impunity…




Name on the Door

What's a name on the door?
A statement of eternity
Limited in time, what for?
As all end rather politely

Few possessions so clear
Than a paneled wood
With colour obtuse, oh fear
Shallow we are, grave food

The door made a symbol
Of life, libertine passions
Unless it's the cloudy fall
To whom we give discussions

The name made a symbol
Of a foolish divine spark
Fighting with all our soul
To make the world less dark

Oh, name on the door
Fade away faster than I
Cause I go away, I soar
Loudly, not even a sigh



Blood Sun

It's an old country tale, infinite
A red sun, before the day next
Tells of a breeze strong in spirit
Made to laze, just a pretext

Or does it refer to war, in Mars
Where blood lying in blades
Rise to the morning, scars
Full of passion, by brigades

Or is it simply an effect, crudely
Of evening angles, our earth
Relating to other planets, cruelly
Just physics, no cause, no birth

In truth, it's all. What we see
On such evening, a blood sun
Powerful, majestic, its glory
Is ours, is yours, all sudden




Knowing Late

Why do we know
That we need to
In time rather slow
Later that we ado

To know for certain
One's destiny
A gift that begun
Early, all in Eden

A privilege of trust
Giving clarity
No matter if just
To one's destiny

Only age, only time
Gives us all a view
Of who we are, I am
Active, claiming virtue

Why can't we have
Knowledge inborn
To live not a half
But in full, if borne

If asked, questioned
I need to know before
I act, often unthreatened
Yes, I need no more


Standing Poet

Standing there, wondering
If this was Hell, was Heaven
Yet sure of your doing
You changed. Now even

Black on black, daughter
Of our civilisation eternal
Your words shine brighter
Than our hearts fraternal

Open to vibration unknown
Still in soul, fired in heart
You claimed without a frown
What pushes us apart

Never despair, seed of life
Your fight is one, never afar
From your senses rife
Speak, think, as you are



Sometime Alone, Never Lonely

Which star in the night
Belongs to the other
None, they all fight
For life, for a corner

Yet, peaceful dark
Contrast of a day
When brilliant spark
Question its way

Each alone, strong
Dependent on none
Starry eye, wrong
To fear being done

Sometimes alone
Never lonely
A creed drown
To all glory



Peasant or Knight

Why would I seek, or fight
For a condition not my own
At heart, peasant or knight
Do I decide? Is it in stone?

In both states honour resides
For no man in truth, sincerely
Can be blamed, God abides
None stronger than yours truly

Seeking solace in an ignored title
That can't be bought, only given
In such condition, my heart idle
Wonders what if? Am I taken?

If in honour you truly live
Worry not on your nobility
For your actions, never furtive
Are your title, your destiny



Claiming Sanity

Are we for real
Can we truly
Before we heal
Claim sanity

Passing for a fool
Living all senses
Giving you a tool
To think in tenses

A hundred years
Of analysis given
Cannot, all swears
Make us less driven

Few if truly wise
Can claim sanity
I for one, my eyes
Prefer, sensibly, folly

Tiny Ballerina

From your height endless
You twirl so your heart
Remembers truth selfless
Learn by birth, never part

Mixing fun, discipline
You make friends of all
Yet aware, a laugh unseen
Will never make you fall

Trust the dance wisdom
Serving a higher purpose
One when you and om
Merge, in life repose

You will grow, never worry
For your soul connects
To all, as one, no mystery
A fact of life in all aspects


John & Jesus

Was one before the other
An order destined, timed
So no message truer
Among believers passed

Just as a thought, a belief
Ultimately a matter of faith
Take a truth, render it brief
And turn into your breath

If a teacher knows the truth
Like John and Jesus honoured
In faith, such trust, such youth
Forgive us our thoughts unlimited

Who of the two deserve life
For neither queen, neither king
Saw their name as their wife
Taken by fear, not by wing

They live in all, in soul granted
An eternity to forgive, to forget
Than all error past, so tested
Will always be yours, it is set.




False Spirituality

If time presents itself
Each spirit will soar
Without regret, safe
Knowing how to adore

Yet, the light of a word
Carries the power to kill
Any soul as a bird
Unable to stay still

Such ironic poesy
As it all started
With a word, free
Bravely ended

Talking without thought
Gives birth to conflict
Forget what you sought
Each idea is strict

Open your mind to gold
Each stone unsearched
Will gravely stop you cold
Before you spirit's birthed

False spirituality abound
In each word untested
By life coming around
In a circle arrested




Town of the Hill

Town of the hill
Standing still
Few know you
Few love you

Souvenir gone
To a past done
Of time given
Better, worsen

Jewel in the light
Quiet and bright
Carrying dreams
With all screams

Summer cool
Winter fool
Once a week
Friends I seek

Town of the hill
Love fulfill
Rest in peace
Part Art piece




L'inconnue

Sitting nearly far apart
Seeing your reflection
I wonder how to start
Guessing your decision

You rest in a dream
Calm, still, angelic
Unknowing the scream
Lying to the critic

Should we talk insight
Or let our lives drift
Away from the fight
That comes as a gift

Your life is your own
Stay your course
No one can frown
You are the source

Never to meet
We rest unknown
Taking in the week
Hearts have flown




Christmas Morning

Eager anticipation
Of a feast of passion
Christmas is love
Of but one above

Knowing full well
All should dwell
On white Snow
Heart in flambeau

Truth brightly told
Morning full and bold
All in Christmas being
Rejoice in the coming

Families of one kind
No colour, one mind
Awake to the power
Of the true sower

The year is in sight
Days away, write
Your life on the wall
Just as you recall

Christmas morning
In daylight cleansing
The night before
For all to adore



Going Nowhere

Far from the end of the road
A sign with words abashed
State of a past so broad
Yet untold, mostly cached

Thinking aloud why it is so
Realising, few know the truth
None die of reason, nor bow
Yet all dream, if uncouth

Going nowhere is a gift
For with nowhere to go
You can't miss, nor shift
Never needing to know

With few years to live real
Waste not each first second
Open your heart, deeply feel
The walls marked, crimsoned

Own more than one path
Fulfill a cherished destiny
Ignore another's wrath
Trust your soul, closely

Going nowhere is a gift
Should you really see
For a nation to uplift
All you need is to be



Sister of two Gods

Sister of two Gods
Do you truly know
When time is at odds
You only can grow

On morning full
Bright in light
Your heart dull
Chose to fight

Bearing the scar
Of betrayal real
From nations afar
Testing your will

Go forth and thrust
In depth of the soul
One who is just
Will turn you whole

Apollo to Athena
Truth is so wise
Soul or beauty saga
Trust not your eyes

Fear not others
Their short thought
Full of bothers
Equals to naught

Sister of two Gods
Decide who you are
Live without nods
Only you can go far



Not Knowing

Is it a matter of reflection
To know who you are
Or a desire for attention
Leading us sadly afar

One is, that's all there is
With few words known
The soul aims to be his
Yet unknown, alone

Oh, knowledge evolving
How much was lost
For time, in birth till dying
Not knowing the cost

Our Ancestors knew more
So much more than we
For their soul came before
The will we so adore

The present wisdom
Is temporal, often wrong
A mere page in an album
Of thoughts not yet Song

Not knowing is a bliss
Cherished by fools
Claiming wisdom amiss
In a library of tools

The future simply belongs
To those who remember
Truth's past in many songs
Unlearning today in wonder



The Silence

Is life better lived
In silence, unafraid
Of words unfinished
Of thoughts betrayed

Silence expressed
By a lack of words
Tear a soul blessed
By many cowards

Silenced by the light
Away from a thought
That vision without sight
Is of a mind distraught

Silent yet thinking
That few in the world
Know life would bring
Many days that twirled

The silence you hear
Sounds of your thoughts
Destines you to clear
All doubts, all footnotes

Stay clear of silence
If you can't face distance
Nor truth without absence
Nor words without patience



A Soul So True

A soul so true
Facing such pain
Without a clue
It's only a chain

True, fierce friend
Swayed by flesh
Having to fend
For a life afresh

Ever searching fate
In books unwritten
Till a cheerful date
Offers a sun smitten

Alone, proud, still
Keeping the key
To a sole freewill
Till we all agree

Without distance
Far enough to lose
Your own absence
Nor any virtues

Stranger beware
There is strength
In a mind aware
Of its own length




Names Remembered

In time forgotten
A name was all
To avoid Eden
Let a name fall

Naming the child
Sets a lifetime
Of love, often exiled
Till all say 'I am'

Families have fought
Battles for a crest
A land, a spouse besot
Their names now rest

If for a second
A name you forgot
Emotion blazoned
Stay still, worry not

Simply never forget
An old friend's name
For all friends unmet
Your lives reclaim

A name for your soul
Full in clear destiny
Claiming more and all
A name is eternity



The Cheerful Philosopher

In the light of wisdom
Stood a bright soul
Looking for a poem
To listen, to console

Seeing the limits
Of talking, of writing
Focused all his wits
On tomorrow's spring

Facing the wind
With an open mind
Two thoughts twinned
Showed Eden designed

Trust not the flame
Flickering in the wave
But more what became
Of you after the grave

Many a friend today
Prefer to obey, to pray
Forgetting that doorway
Leading them away

In truth, the word
Began in the arc
Deeply centered
Around the dark

Is it truly possible
For a philosopher
As a cheerful symbol
To never show anger

The answer is simple
For the love of the wise
Began inside the cycle
Deep inside the skies



Village of Soul-trees

In an old, far way, part of the land
Stand a village of no resting place
Each person in his last stand
Is given a tree to rest in grace

Ancient tradition lost to all souls
Created calm, bucolic streets
Lined with trees, a sign of roles
Reflecting elites and cheats

With every returning spring
Each street in beauty explodes
Full of colours, scents, masking
A life passing many crossroads

Each tree an owner's soul
Each leaf, a inner belief
Good and evil truly whole
A moment full, so brief

In all stands a question
A deep sense for legacy
Ages blind with no mention
Of what would your tree be



Tired

Too tired to reach
I stand empty
Facing the breach
Of a memory

Missing past ghosts
Bathed in honour
Acting as hosts
Without true power

Tired to live, to die
With much time left
To cry, to glorify
Time, guilty of theft

Letting most days
Pass with passion
Fearing many ways
To think without reason

Tired yet not empty
I will come to finish
The life I so carry
Before all vanish



Search Constant

Searching for a life constant
Same as searching constantly
Neither truly, fully pleasant
Both required to be happy

We all start with the same second
Yet each card given is different
Some will take it and respond
Others will hate or be indifferent

The search is on for a future
Based on faith, on philosophy
Both sides avoiding a rupture
Our ancestors paid for dearly

Each individual a god, one’s son
Whose omnipotence, often ridiculed
Is rather obvious, and has begun
Ignore limited minds obscured




Righteousness

Fear the righteous
Who knows well
His thoughts anxious
Have gone stale

Given, not learnt
Such poor thinking
In them burnt
Leads each doing

For right or wrong
Leading a crusade
Against the strong
Yet dying as a blade

On few ever dawned
Seeing death abound
Their way beyond
A shallow God bound

Oh, righteous beware
To enter life unaware
Of others whose glare
Shadow your heir



The Secret

'Can you know something
And never repeat it?'
This is a stolen writing
Yet this truth is all wit

I know a secret of fools
One that everyone knows
It stays away from all rules
Used to keep your woes

'We are what we think'
Wisdom of the ages
Stolen from one's ink
Buried in black ashes

A secret so unknown
Not the word, its power
Cause you, you alone
Can make it The answer

Spread it like it’s yours
For few will understand
That this thought cures
All there is in your hand


On Being Right

Few truths hurt more
Than being right
As those you adore
Will give-up the fight

What makes me think
What I know is true
As without a blink
I forget your view

Why do you take for real
The knowledge you hold
Daughters of how you feel
Yet rarely stand you bold

We think mainly alone
Lost in a world so bleak
Proud of a logic prone
To failure for the weak

Whether I, you, or we
On being right we fear
For others' limits we see
Of ourselves, we're unclear



The Blessed Crow

In old past days
Stood a blessed crow
Whose glorified ways
Made all to bow

Old, bright raven
Brought wisdom
To our heaven
To our bosom

He lived before
Time had opened
The coloured door
We all entered

Thinking wholly
To void Man's folly
Giving faithfully
Hope without mercy

He is still here
Mainly unseen
By eyes undear
To all but Win

In time the Crow
Will come to shore
To still the sorrow
Few truly adore

Keep your heart open
When his scream heard
Will give trust and then
Freedom of the bird



The Flag

Blood born in battle
A flag brought glory
To its Knights brittle
Changing each destiny

To die for any flag
Of unconcerned nations
Which politically brag
Of lost sons for dominions

But each flag a symbol
Of trust and honour
Not a leader, not an idol
Truly know the horror

Honour and horror
Living in a hero's heart
A battle none are for
Yet all need to restart

See the flag drenched
For what it is today
Symbol of a life wretched
All dying for the way



Saints and Sinners

In time Saints and Sinners
Will walk hand in hand
Proud of what others
Have written in the sand

A Saint once claimed
To know the truth
Forgetting the blamed
He met in his youth

The sinner saw clarity
In his life unfettered
By all forms of charity
Yet sadly, oddly, centered

Both dripping much blood
Of victims unconcerned
By the sight of the flood
Spread by the learned

But which to choose
A path straight, clear
Or another to loose
Your soul, yet not fear

A sinner is a Saint, and
All Saints are sinners
Better grand than bland
Ask all known winners

When the trumpets call
Your decisions will stand
At the door or the wall
Depending on your strand

Choose well every minute
For each counts in the end
As you turn back to dispute
Each thought, each friend



Your Fault

You left before Christmas
Not even completing your life
Who on earth would pass
And live a world rife

I blame you always
With all my heart
For not being in days
Taking the road apart

You were my brother
As only the single child
Could be with another
Friends to death, how wild

Living in a land of Legends
Undisturbed by reality
Forgetting that in our hands
Resides life, lives our destiny

Oh, I blame you still
For living us alone to be
Since then our still will
Has been reviving its glory

We moved on without
Your gifts, your voice
Unforgotten son of doubt
Forever now rejoice


Bells of Destiny

In the evening before God
Rings the spiritual bells
Giving all the time to nod
To one, ignoring all hells

Smile not, for their melody
Resonates deep within you
Tuning you with eternity
To be, without further ado

Smile yet for that same reason
As from within you are without
In this is, is a simple lesson
We truly are what we think about

The bells my father heard
On the eve of his birth
His knowledge conquered
Claiming life over earth

It is the same bells humanity
Will listen to on the last day
Bells of deliverance, of unity
Born in a fire burning today

Listen to each of their voice
As you open your mind
In the morning, rejoice
As they make you less blind




Beware the Tyrant

The tyrant with one sweep
Takes lives, hearts and souls
In his name glorified, all weep
None is safe from his cajoles

Son of peasants, barely common
Or son of the highest order
Each tyrant claims to summon
God for himself, for the better

Few think such honour
To know well your path
Against good, or all other
Is worth facing his wrath

Yet many in caves darkened
Will fight his strength, his will
To live a life envisioned
By prophets before the chill

It's bizarre that such tyrant
Never living from without
Lies deep inside the patient
He is within, yet we shout



Stop Talking

What is the use
Of a voice unspoken
If you'd be a muse
Say it unwritten

Why did Adam speak
The language of God
Yet fell, became weak
No longer of real blood

Since that tongue
Now forgotten
We speak strong
In sounds stricken

And today our eyes
Open to a world
Filled with goodbyes
Said and twirled

Choose silence
Over words
Blessed in trance
Love entered

Stop all talking
Before life's lost
Prefer praying
Over the frost



The Devil's house

In a forgotten village
Deep behind a forest
Stands with courage
An angel on test

Guarding One's house
By the door's threshold
Where not even a mouse
Would see his life unfold

An Angel never sins
Hence you may wonder
Why such fate it wins
But to him, it’s Honour

The few who dare pass
Often lost or on purpose
Will see an empty house
Feeling lonely but jealous

Of the seven gates
This one fear most
In shadows it waits
To your sins be host

And do remember
That past that door
The devil is a doer
Awaiting to roar




Rainmaker

How to be sad
When it rains
Nothing bad
In watered drains

Yet making rain
Is a gift of God
Taking a brain
Turning it odd

A word change
Removed the gift
Made it dange'
More than swift

Today with talk
Of money goods
Where to walk
With no woods

The rain has gone
From high above
To a life done
Buy a golden dove

Pray yet
As somewhere the rain
Pours on a life truly set
On a spiritual reign


Knowing it all

We've met before
I'm the one who knows
Everything you adore
On which it snows

Knowing it all
Is a gift, a burden
Leading all to fall
Foreseen, yet sudden

Is it truly possible
For one to know all
Without being able
To create its own wall

It is rather obvious
That all know all
Without being devious
Ask the records' hall

Do you seek such power
Of being more than being
If yes, then climb the tower
Each step will be your undoing

But fear not white foal
Heed your own speed
For you must loose it all
To know all that you need



Crazy but Sane

Never claim sanity
Fools will love you
Remain yours truly
Stay colourfully true

Sanity is not bad
After all many are
Yet seeming sad
Their dreams afar

Balancing in between
A life seems worthy
To those who win
A fight truly crazy

Our progress for sure
The result of madmen
From whom each venture
Seemed rational again

If choosing you must
Gear towards crazy
For can you really trust
One with all his sanity

How many chose
To be crazy or sane
When life's woes
Forces you to blame

Whichever way you go
It's your choice, none other
A decision in which to grow
Or perish alone, sadder


Who do you pray to

Who do you pray to
Before you sleep
Who do you pray to
Before you weep

A prayer misused
Forgets its power
A prayer is abused
If to change another

A prayer changes
Those who pray
Not mere wishes
But the true way

No words needed
For the true God
Help those blinded
Even the flawed

No words needed
For God knows
What each wanted
Even before their egos

Whether you chose
Or received your God
Pray and compose
A life to be awed

Who do you pray to
Matters truly not
And in all you do
Pray, as all forgot


January First

January First
Nothing rehearsed
Nothing worst
Than never be first

Playing a year anew
All among the few
Noting a real debut
When life you pursue

What will become
Of dreams awesome
Unless you welcome
A time to blossom

Four seasons unique
Leading to your peak
Eternity you can peek
As long as you seek

Twelve months in line
Each made to define
A soul truly divine
Destined to shine

Fifty-two seven days
Resting ablaze
Knowing you amaze
With your gaze

Days and a quarter
Each aimed to alter
The man-made border
Of the censor

January First
Nothing rehearsed
Nothing worst
Than never be first

Enough

Enough of the sound
That kills our souls
In which we're bound
To create walls

Enough of the site
That stands away
Making us take flight
When we should stay

Enough of the smell
That makes us regret
Heed a stronger spell
Before we forget

Enough of the touch
That's makes us dance
We need not much
Just romance

Enough of the taste
That Bacchus leads
We need not waste
If we trust all seeds

A sixth we need
For to sense real
Is a gift indeed
Yet so few will


Heavy Words

We've all said them
Words to regret
Yet none to blame
Each word an asset

Few really master
The soul's sound
For none are better
Than a fool crowned

Yet we live as if
Each word dies
In thoughts stiff
And unsaid cries

The trivial pursuit
Of knowing more
Hurts the astute
And all you adore

Recall the day
When fathers cry
Cause of the way
You let love die

Words are alive
Treat them well
Each will dive
In a heart pastel


Waiting

Waiting is for the strong
Others gratification seek
Though neither wrong
One is for the meek

Is waiting a virtue
As we seem to think
Not to the waiting you
Who hates the fink

Waiting to die
Shows no passion
For a life gone awry
Preferring oblivion

Waiting for a turn
That may never be
Should you adjourn
Go forward and see

What about Godot
Will you wait for him
Or your life below
Is better on a whim

What about tomorrow
Will you still be there
Or having left long ago
Before you were aware

Waiting is not for all
A sage once said
Sourced in your role
And the price you paid

Elemental

Life in itself is basic
We fret for things
Making us weak
Neglecting our wings

The Earth mother
Still believes in us
Children of ether
Proud to discuss

The Air so humble
Strong in its winds
Calm as an Angel
Before it rescinds

Fire a true symbol
For good or purity
Deleting the idol
Stealing our divinity

Water a real flow
Cleaning the path
We take to glow
Even in its wrath

Elemental world
Of nature and Man
From gold be hurled
One Stone in plan



Friends

So many regrets
All made to forget
But one that begets
More pain yet

That of a friend
Left on a road
A life descend
In stride and toad

Life is a trilogy
Of friends proud
A close first truly
None yet bowed

Never a friend leave
Let them go first
For all soul weave
A net immersed

See friends in all
Trust before doubt
And if one should fall
To you let them shout


Believe

Of all the secrets
Believing stands
One which effects
All it demands

Your inner beliefs
Barely false or true
Manages your griefs
Yet not all a virtue

Try to believe more
A little everyday first
Then life you'll adore
And no longer thirst

Once you transform
And know beyond
You will be born
Into a life dawned

Believing is courage
Yet few prefer to loose
A soul of no outrage
Folded in white abuse

This knowledge hidden
To those who seek
Without action given
Will stay closed, unique


Celebrating Death

Why on earth
Would God
Sowed birth
Then yawed

An image we are
Omni and true
Yet limits afar
Slowed the brew

Priests, sages and men
Search to reconcile
What happened then
This will last a while

If we are that image
Then why we pass
Praying a glory age
Forgetting life, alas

All celebrating death
As if it is necessary
Us to use a breath
Made to be witty

Death we celebrate
Not for what's there
But for today's date
To be all, anywhere

Fail Freedom

Fail freedom, expire
Few truly realise
Even as a desire
Unfulfilled, it dies

Being selfishly human
Isn't freedom my own
Focus on your omen
And leave me alone

Freedom's a word
Unless we fight it
Life to the absurd
Finds soul bit by bit

In symbol and in life
We strive to be free
In apathy or rife
All a cross to carry

But free at what cost
Thinking not of others
We die before we're lost
Unknowing of neighbors

For life to have meaning
On others we shall bet
For love is all blessing
Be free of that regret


Out of Sync

The world vibrates
A truth eternal
Preceding fates
Before our fall

Leaving in reality
In dreams needed
I take sanctity
Absolving my deed

So many minutes
And short hours
As life distributes
All true powers

Clear vibration
Of life more real
BE in slow motion
Ignoring the wheel

To truly know you
In synch I have to be
With a spirit so true
That I can only see

Jail Free

Curiosity kills
Cats not mice
Paying all bills
With one dice

No one knows
What jail is
Till it shows
A dark breeze

For most, lucky
We live in today
Trusting and free
Each his own way

Many live enclosed
In jails of their own
No apple disclosed
To confuse me alone

Tell me not
What you know
Unless you forgot
To listen to ego

I choose to be free
Of facts and trees
Trusting wholly
In life and fairies











We met on a glance

We met on a glance
Words so unnecessary
Fast turned into dance
Of life, spirit and beauty

So many minutes spent
Exploring thoughts, deeds
Knowing each a God sent
Of what are they the seeds?

Loving life as you know it
Yet it wasn't always so
Tested deeply in spirit
Your soul still in limbo

If in life we meet again
Will it be that beautiful
Can a man, a women
Be friends, oh Devil

Thank you for your truth
For being who you are
Forever in your youth
An angel yet a Star


Roma & Amor

Unique or dual
Life is not real
Only in plural
You truly feel

Two chapels
Each a seal
Of past battles
Fighting in zeal

Destroying each
Truth wisdom
Divine breach
Of love blossom

Which be mine
For I know not
Unless sublime
I never forgot

Roma or Amor
I choose thee
For each adore
Their divinity

Son of God
Tell us clear
Without fraud
Not to fear


Jail Free

Curiosity kills
Cats not mice
Paying all bills
With one dice

No one knows
What jail is
Till it shows
As cold breeze

For most, lucky
We live in today
Trusting and free
Each his own way

Yet living enclosed
In jails of our own
Having proposed
To be truly alone

Life is funny
If you choose
To live in unity
None can refuse

Break your jail
For it is yours
None be so frail
As to let


Joy

Life's a desire
Playfully given
Made to aspire
To the eleven

Trust the star
Of your birth
As all so far
Gave worth

Each day
Is a promise
For the way
Or the abyss

Chose alone
As none other
But God known
Would bother

Give your heart
Seek passion
It is a true art
To forget reason

Joy is life
Life is joy
Avoid strife
Don't be coy


Heaven & Hell

Bound by omnipotence
Heaven and Hell fall
Each for dominance
Of the other, of all

Opposed triangles
Of the same faith
Each truth fumbles
With each breath

Do we decide
Our way to go
Do we divide
With each ego

No one knows
If they exists
Yet each flows
In sublime fists

It is a choice
Never easier
As each voice
Hates the lesser

Heaven & Hell
Exists in hearts
Before they fell
Before he starts


The Tree and the Druid

Working in the forest
Is not what it used to be
Then a twenty-year test
Was all you had to see

I remember the days
When each tree talked
Telling of all the ways
We saw and walked

Each a friend in heart
Giving meaning to our Sun
Blessed yet never apart
From where all had to run

The Willows bows to life
Follow the Oak in season
Trust the Holly and be rife
While Hazel turns you beacon

Each tree in us belongs
For in him we strengthen
Clearings all wrongs
We gave to our brethren

Walk among them
Feel their voice
Listen to their poem
And make your choice

Want

I want
You want
They want
We want

It can't end
Till we know
Till each hand
Takes it slow

Seek the wise
In mind or soul
See the faith
Become whole

Want or need
Two faces coin
Each the seed
Unneeded to rejoin

The heart's desire
Knitting passions
Into a bonfire
Of petty actions

Yet the true heart
Needless, unwanting
In all of us impart
Our soul's deepening


Give me the power to read

If God asked me today what I needed
I would have to say, read
If God asked me today what I wanted
I wouldn’t dream of changing my request
I want the power to read and live beyond my eyes
I need that power to enter realms beyond realms
With few years in which to learn it all
All can be learned in a second
Yet if we want to truly stay true
In a world where truth is ever changing
We need to love another's words
And write our own in ink and blood
I've never thought about the power of words
Until they reaped my heart apart
When a stranger with no attachments
Said a truth that disturbed my soul
Stay your course he said
Yet change if you dare
For none posses the power so divine
At the one who chooses to go somewhere else
Their is sickness in that thought
For I was well and ignorant as I stood firm on my land
Once those words were proposed
I had to redeem my heart and start walking
Reading, talking, thinking and dreaming alone among others
I've been on all roads ever since

Awaken

Life awaken
Death awaken
Fear not brother
You're no other

It takes a life
To know it all
Without strife
Can I stand tall

Yet we seek
Calmness indeed
Away, not weak
Fools in deed

A light true and far
Awakes the senses
Unwilling we are
To drop defenses

Asleep always
I stay awaken
Dreaming of days
Free, unbroken

In life or death
Why can't I see
Truth and faith
And be free

Choice of Faith

Are we born in sin
Unaware of its cause
Bathing and clean
To all applause

For each day we see
What truly we are
In dreamic apathy
Lost to God afar

Not choosing yesterday
Doesn't absolve the sin
Of choosing any a way
As long as we win

That church of mine
Deep within my soul
Tells all that I am fine
Alive, strong and whole

Trust the universal faith
Its choice of beliefs
Yet so real is a wraith
Life must have many leafs

Descend into you
Climb into God
Either one pursue
And be awed

Corner of my eye

I see enough in the corner of my eye
To know that life can pass me by
To live I have to be willing to die
To an unnecessary faith or sigh

The true future starts in the heart
Combining hope and dreams we steer
Avoiding confusion that takes us apart
Involved in the world we hold so dear

I know who I am, I have been told
Here lies the irony of life few realise
For if I knew that, would I hold
Beliefs that gives life after it dies

In front of us is a future
We mold with every thought
Real or imagined we endure
A style that can be bought

Yet from the corner of my eye
I see a life I want to live
Where nature asks me why
Did I ever want to leave



Conspiracy Theories

A world full of secrets
Some known, some not
Many create dull regrets
And some aim to plot

A gathering of brethren
Aiming to bring light
To a few sons given
Yet leading to midnight

Are the chosen few
So bright, so cunning
As if at morning dew
All knew of the coming

Or is History but truly
Random events unclear
With but one God solely
Knowing beyond fear

Can a group of men
Like a beast unseen
Fight for strife again
And die unclean

No one knows truly
If our lives controlled
Sometimes unwillingly
Are better unsold

But we sons of God
Truly know better
Even if we’re flawed
Truth is our altar



Narrow Pathways

In cities unknown and medieval
Narrow pathways protected
Nobles and peasants, all
From enemies undetected

In a war falling unto Gibraltar
Iron horses with narrowed shoes
Saved Latin heroes from a star
Of unclaimed blood and no virtues

Yet life itself requires more
No matter which God you adore
For narrow pathways to your heart
Will block you at every start

Each such pathway if unchecked
Will lead you, fine soul, unprepared
To a crossroad that will connect
Your life to God or his angel spared

At each crossroads that devil stands
For it’s his house not matter how odd
He will question all your demands
And offer his help to make you flawed

Thank him all heartily for his invite
But you can say no without thinking
You already are an imperfect knight
And the right path is of your choosing

Open you heart, mind and soul
To life itself via wide pathways
And each time you’re on a roll
Trust you inner guard, always


Duty or Pleasure

In time of doubt
Two paths appear
One for the devout
Or else the seer

Duty or pleasure
A question deep
Made to reassure
Those who weep

The beauty of all
Is you can choose
Unless taken to fall
You prefer to loose

There is no man
To whom such choice
Left him to be damn
Of his own voice

Neither leads to hell
But which to heaven
Of that I can't tell
Being odd, uneven

Yet choose you must
For the path foretold
Will make you trust
You're one in the fold


Kingdom of Heaven

Oh! kingdom of heaven
Never real, never unreal
Are you a God, a maiden
Oh! all hearts you steal

Will you surrender the secret
Of your name to a brethren
Owner of paradise's debt
Carried to a land barren

Heed that word, that name
That fools and wise alike
Have searched to blame
No fault would ever strike

From words to conflicts
Your kingdom falls daily
Yet, it rising again depicts
Nothing known, nothing earthly

This secret opens hearts
While locking truth inside
Often seen in all true Arts
Yet hidden in paint applied

Kingdom of heaven, hear me
I'm weak yet often strong
And in deeds I pray to thee
Don't make me always wrong

Dependency Kills

Learn a truth: Dependency kills
No matter how good it feels
A fact you'll learn against you will
Even if you decide to remain still

Yet, let's put this in perspective
There is nothing like to live
For another in a loving weave
Together yet ever suasive

Do strive for togetherness
Alone or with someone else
Life lived is truly priceless
Let others stand heartless

The dependency spoken here
Is of love struggling so dear
Submerged in passion unclear
Seemingly open, rarely sincere

But who can give such advice
Except for those deep in vice
Whose soul tricked twice
Only seek to all entice

Dependency kills it’s true
Yet noting better than being two
Let’s die in its embracing brew
And forever that mistake value


In a Whisper

In a whisper she departed
Surrounded in white walls
With strangers animated
Unknown to all Gauls

Her figure who raised
An infant to a man
Trusting, often amazed
Yet a odds with the clan

Loved beyond compare
Shattered by the earth
Frantically pursuing the air
That removed her birth

That night unsung
When all hearts died
In cooper unstrung
Father and son lied

In a coal field she rests
Among those of the clan
None fulfilled their quests
Their lives truly began

In a whisper of love
She remains a soul
That left in life above
A love eternally whole


Knowing the Secret

A name so powerful
Dead to the faithful
So searched by all
Known if so noble

Such name unknown
Written in blood alone
Hidden in the darkness
Of a lineage flawless

The days of the bear
Of a search in prayer
Answered by a book
Lost when they look

Seek it where it lies
Before the Heart dies
Neither forest nor lakes
Will show your mistakes

The only true Secret
Of the index prophet
Belongs to all worthy
Of life’s real beauty

Questions all your deeds
For if your search succeeds
Would you use that name
For life or worldly fame

The Gate

Why wait at Heaven's gate
Wondering if you belong
You loved and had to hate
As none knew the true song

In life we passed along
Unaware of our neighbours
Both possibly were wrong
To miss so many answers

From time to time a flash
An epiphany if they exist
Showed us that in a dash
Life is in who you assist

No one is truly selfish
For every life matters
You’ll see at the finish
Friends, fathers, mothers

To be judged at the gate
Is a plus, for who cares
What was your fate
Not even your heirs

Heaven’s gate opens to all
There are no exceptions
Once this truth you recall
You’ll be joining legions


Thoughts are

Thoughts are things
In black & white
Left alone their wings
Will give us sight

Thoughts are people
In all colours
They'll rise and fall
With full honours

Thoughts are dreams
Useful and not
Playful in extremes
Most you forgot

Thoughts are trees
Deeply rising
In lands and seas
Never aging

Thoughts are us
Teaching forever
In divine chorus
How to be better

Thoughts are healers
In words and sounds
Mixing humours
Each truly astounds

Thoughts are you
So try to think
For each will renew
You're life in a blink


A Child

None has life more than a child
Questioning all that there is
Dancing, diving, running wild
Taken by nature's quiz

Trust him, cherish her always
For their time in innocence
Goes faster than our days
Involved in life's dance

A child's life is beyond a promise
We make ourselves early on
As they dream without malice
A future they've already won

Life is their school, their teacher
Just as it was ours in other days
Sharing each victory, each error
From each other, learning their ways

We all remember our youth
Whether happy or angry
It is the source of our truth
One we need to live freely

Life is a Miracle

Die into life
Die into spirit
No matter
Can hold you

Life is truth
Unaltered
Undeterred
By falsehood

Pray or think
Either way
Leads life
Into itself

Choose wisely
Or not
Either way
Leads to life

Day in or out
Never wait
Always act
Always trust

First light
Then sunset
Take you
Make you


Future's History

You who perpetrated the future of History
Who never felt much for polite society
Dancing in the sun and moon’s beauty
You left us all, what a true pity

Facing your fear until hated
By minds of lesser destiny fated
For you knew we all faded
The day your words came shaded

Those free words you blessed
None and few truly addressed
Many works of depth varied
All one, often sadly married

Yet the mechanics of God
Disturbed by churches in cross
Rarely dared to listen to an ode
Written by who else but logos

The true future of history
Lies in a past unwritten
Forgotten by man unashamed
Of the life before Him

Truth in Symbols

A dot, a circle, a triangle
Enters the life created
Against a wishful devil
Of God truly entrusted

Each image sublimed
Source of truth blessed
Of wisdom expressed
In black half-whitened

For life is in the dot
Unaware, truly naught
Seeking what is taught
In twice negative thought

Eternal time is circle
Beginning in an angel
Ancient pagan cycle
Forgotten but annual

Three sides equal
Brothers of old fables
Against their own evil
Stronger in couples

The truth is in symbols
A vision beautifully fated
As dots, circles, triangles
Born of earth undated


The Blueberry's Brutal Attack

Evidently one must pay attention
To the blueberry's brutal demeanor
When unaware, the poor visitor
Encounters a fruit's dominion

A simple act of two enemies
One wiser than necessary
The other believes in deities
Neither sure of their destiny

As the sun opens a new day
Among others, each sway
Thoughts disturbing vibrations
Reminds all, they are cousins

Standing on white with friends
The encounter is truly unfair
Each knows how it ends
A battle, an epic warfare

Between metal and burned clay
Focused on what the animal needs
One crushes and has his way
The other fights and bleeds

The moral of such tragic story
Is so simple than none worry
As each participant survives
To the sound of united lives


Life is a Rhythm

Life is a rhythm
Life has a rhythm
In each second
In each sound

Turn and listen
See and widen
Your horizon
Your definition

Ignore each sense
In life immense
Born in oblivion
In God's dominion

Ask and receive
For none deceive
The trusted heart
Whose life's an Art

When life turns
In new patterns
Follow your soul
Become whole

Listen and think
Life goes in a blink
Yet each is eternal
Even before the fall

Life is a rhythm
Life has a rhythm
You're blessed in it
More than you admit


Timeless Thinking

I want to stop thinking
And know what life's about
I want to start dreaming
Open my soul and shout

I fear for nothing but life
That's been wasted on me
For I should know the strife
I cause when I ignore beauty

The storm I create in words
Stays in hearts unborn
I am the King of cowards
Living ignored, forlorn

Yet it is painfully clear
That I could use such power
To trust all life so dear
To love the soul in the hour

Think of it, it is easy
All I need is to choose
The right path in a hurry
And walk its virtues

Thinking is a but a step
I need to follow to its end
Yet I know that to be an adept
I must stop thinking and ascend

Life is a Myth

Life is a Myth
One to live with
A dream for sure
In itself pure

We know we're alive
A thought we derive
From thinking deeply
About ourselves mainly

As we see another
Pretending to be blur
We claim, poor fellow
As above, so below

For a Myth is truth
Adapted from our youth
Set in such a dream
Woken-up in a scream

Yet taking that long road
From home to abroad
With hope in our head
Preferring to be dead

Few wake-up to the bit
Of a heart at your feet
Stranded in a life unaware
Of its power in prayer

Life is a Myth, a secret
One you shouldn't regret
Know it and pass it on
Until your days are done

Infinite Belief

We know more than we're told
Yet, to be so bold
As to say such a thing
Means we're dreaming

To believe is divine
Facing a reality sublime
Trusting a greater force
Unseen as the last recourse

Why would a belief
In itself simple and brief
Would last for ever
Never to die nor alter

Unless we're its host
Living in us, well almost
Passing by more truly
For we are here but briefly

All beliefs are recorded
And only our soul halted
Is unable to retrieve
What it is needs to believe

Each belief your project
Stays with us and affect
All others, yet it's funny
For none are new, truly


The Single Tear

The single tear rolls
A sign of your humanity
Or betrayal of emotions
Expressing your inner life
To someone other than you
In this moment of cruel eternity
You relinquish your destiny
For the benefit of another
For you see, that single tear
Is seen by a world aware
Who now thinks you're real
Worthy of living among others
Having also failed and cried
And taken their single tears
Turned them it into a cross
Worn with pride and distinction
To ensure that the next one
Is followed by hope and redemption
Worship that first single pearl
That comes from within deep
A place you're surely unaware
Where your demons and angels
Live side-by-side in unison
Creating your daily thoughts
Each making you better, or worse
But all creating who you are
And every one attaching an emotion
To every second you're in motion
Keep alive and well in this earth
For the longer you stay
The more you can help others
Share that famous single tear



Anonymous Animosity

All haters are anonymous
For their hatred of others
Makes them shy and vicious
Uncertain as all zephyrs

To hate a stranger is easy
Especially when you're lonely
Throw yourself into friendship
And let go of all hardship

One must wonders about hate
How God could have late it slip
Past his, or hers, pearly gate
And left us alone in this trip

Yes both sides in the hate
Often claim the same lord
Both holding the same sword
Both leading to the same fate

If you hate, stay unknown
For your name will be lost
And it's easier to be alone
Than have your heart tossed

For you see, friendship and love
Requires you to be blinded
And in so doing, you raise above
Being anonymous, being hated


Stranger in my own soul

As stranger in my own soul, I was born
Ripping two worlds apart, I felt torn
From that second on, I knew I'd belong
I believed that I could do nothing wrong

I came into life without a stain
No matters who tells me to refrain
I play each second in full, not in vain
For we all are of the same vein

Each step taken reminds us
Of the wisdom we had thus
In time when we were conscious
Oh! Were we humble and humorous

That deep sense of unity I'm afraid
Seems to have been lost, decayed
Aggressed by a sense conveyed
From the One we should dissuade

It is a fight we all must clearly win
And in each day, the struggle will begin
Bringing two worlds in an endless spin
Showing to all that it is in us that we sin

I've failed more than I can remember
In truth, all fights started in anger
Yet nothing would make me braver
Than to offer the win to the better

I am a stranger in my own soul
Not just by birth or love of control
But since my mind forgot its role
I have to seek to remain whole


Divine Love

Love can only be divine
A truth made by design
For if it wasn't true
Nothing could we do

Such a search however
Brings us to light, closer
With a faith to respect
And eternity to expect

For love is eternal
Accessible by all
To let yourself in
Never try to win

To some, it's a choice
To others, a simple voice
But what is it for you
A truth, a wish to undo

No one can help you
Unless in love with you
You are in all days
In every possible ways

And here lies the true light
For divine love is a birthright
Unperceivable, it is in you
In fact, beware, it is you


A Question Without Reason

A question without reason
Seems like high treason
But when it is asked
Away the masque

In a world of numbers
The gifted slumbers
For only in words
Numbers are wizards

What about intent
What did one meant
Where in one voice
He gave you a choice

Questions are true power
For in the oddest hour
They seek an answer
Past beyond the prayer

So the question is
Do you aim to please
Or in life, ask a question
In all real intention

Question without reason
For in this dimension
Your truth is exposed
Your soul reposed


Facing Mirrors

In a small room unclear of its use
Two mirrors reflecting like a muse
Each arguing in their self true
Ever forgetting their own value

You can't stand in between
Without thinking of them twin
In each both self appear
Reflecting your soul clear

Yet, as you turn to face them
You're opposite feels the blame
And in the twirl of twisted fate
Neither knows if to love or to hate

The irony is not lost on the brothers
For to them you are, or not, as others
They've seen the like of you before
But themselves they can only adore

It's neither private, nor personal
So don't pretend to know them at all
For each time you close the door
They see themselves forever more



The Puzzle

All own a piece of the puzzle
Either adept, or most inept
Born of evil or truly angel
Yet few get the real concept

Born into a light unknown
Carrying an unbroken chain
We start life rarely alone
Never seeking in vain

Each step a lesson in nature
Each step a decision taken
In fear or love we murmur
Words deep or barren

Whether traveling a same path
Or going our separate ways
Whether again we’ll repass
Make the most of all days

The world is deeply complex
Each views as valid as the next
Yet often destined to vex
Ensure we learn the context

This life of yours is a puzzle
And the piece you need I hold
As our lives are destined to fizzle
Share what we know, let it be told


The lone singer

He stands alone in a tunnel
Singing his heart out to all
Thanking each that appreciate
His voice, his passion, his fate

Giving him money is so small
As he turns a second into a ball
His song brings us in balance
Sending strangers into a trance

The gift of his song is eternal
As we go forward we cancel
That moment of clear ecstasy
Forgetting how to be happy

Yet coming back along the way
We hear the fate of a familiar day
As we go forth without a choice
We conclude we are one voice

His voice is yours, is mine
Entangled in a joy divine
Sensing the end of sadness
We know for sure it’s endless

Oh, we wish to be like him
Free of fate, but unknowing
That his song given freely
Is his toil to survive daily



The Labyrinth

To know God start on the path
With one end, without time
The true One who without wrath
Shows you patience in a rime

They’re is only one entrance
Just as the end is the same
Yet along each step, balance
For others have that aim

Going in is easy, just one decision
Moving along takes an eternity
And as each step brings reason
Never forget, it’s all in spirituality

Reaching the end is meaningless
And that’s the ancient paradox
For each labyrinth truly express
That it is the end that life unlocks

Short Attention

Starting this poem
Was more difficult
Than to claim
A fate occult

All truth suffers
When false sayers
Ignoring answers
Declare life is prayer

Suffering in silence
Of many a pathway
Living many a dance
I stand in my way

To focus is divine
Yet life is in possibilities
So I drink of the wine
Of so many realities

Jealous of all brothers
Born with a single purpose
I befriend each who suffers
And bring love to their opus


The Ancestors’ Table

I must have sat there many a time
My father before me probably more
So did his father, until time sublime
The table was brought to the fore

Every cut, scratch, or blood mark
Alive and well on a rectangle wood
Where the same blood before dark
Gathered where once others stood

The patriarch always at the head
Matched equally by his bride
Surrounded by those well fed
Ungrateful, only able to deride

The echo of each voice long dead
Resonate with each sitting, each meal
For some ghosts were known in bread
Others, subject to how they feel

It now sits proudly in the same room
Each generation unequal to the next
One will surely take us to our doom
As is written in another ancestor’s text

The Ancestors’ Table is a life parable
Eternal in itself, we see it as finite
Stuck on memories, forgetting life’s cycle
It can only be seen when we see its light



The Tree

Deep below our seas, deep within the earth
Stand the tree alone no one has ever seen
Each leaf a person, its root, a record of our birth
It's trunk, the unity in which we can only win

Raised in our first birth, dying in our first death
Life like, each follows our lives till the end
Every belief, every thought, every breath
Every relationship, every love, every friend

Look at them, they are in your palm
Defined by themselves and their past
Relentless in their growth, yet calm
The teach us to be one without cast

This tree is knowledge shared in light
Bringing solace to our souls unlit
It is the record of all but one right
The one to declare others unfit

It was in the twilight of the night
That I saw the tree as clear as day
And no matter what I felt was right
It stood and showed me the way

I have a wish for you to see
That tree in your early morning
Once you’ve watched its glory
Your life will truly be fitting

Harmony

Harmony disappears with every thought
It can't be real if you think about it
Yet how can you make it what it ought
Unless it lives in you with every heart bit

Harmony is an ancient mystery we seek
Trusting that in the end, when all is all
We'll all reach it, the strong, the meek
As we cross the ultimate wall

Harmony is but a fantasy we believe
Without it, we would experience folly
So one can't be blamed to live
As if it was the only thing to envy

Harmony is the only destiny we have
Not by choice but by ultimate design
A voice so real, so strong, so suave
We surrender, in ourselves we resign

Harmony is but you, but me
A truth so deep we can't forego
Yes with each breath we see
As we ignore what we can't know

The Hero's Journey

Starting in blood, the Hero's journey
Ends up in sacrifice, or life, everyday
Which is punishment, which victory
It depends on who you want to be

How do you tell who is a hero
In whose honour do you take a blow
Can you face trust and ignore your ego
Can you seek what someone else saw

Everyday sings the song of unknown heroes
Those for whom life comes uneasy
And yet with unmistaken faith, take it all
Once done, sleep on it, and restart it all

We all wish to meet one, to be one
But never let your passion run over
For wanting to can only close
The doors meant to be opened

Heroes are elusive, born of a simple life
They take the path that no one wants
Then one day, having arrived at the gate
They turn around to smiling flowers

They will leave us just like you and I
But for a glimpse in white eternity
We know them for who they truly are
One and only, many but few

Never claim to be a hero, for few truly are
Those who do so rarely prove their worth
While the true, rarely claims to be
So do, be one and keep it in your heart






That Old Apartment

Leaving behind souvenirs
In that old loved apartment
Standing alone without years
Gone is his old tenant

But he's left behind
His spirit, his essence
And never will it find
The light of its absence

For with each departure
We leave part of our soul
Only to gain, in the rupture
A new view making us whole

Many rooms with painted walls
Reminds of the passing life
That dreamt in all night falls
Cutting all hopes like a knife

Each strand of untouched time
In which we live till the end
Brings us closer to the chime
That rings for us till we mend


Soulless Life

Life without a soul brings sadness
To the joyless, the emotionless
For life without you I confess
Feels like hell, full, but pointless

Once given the soul taste
No one can truly haste
No matter how blessed
No matter the distaste

All soul chose their life
None in vain, or strife
Mainly to know passion
Their last fight, last bastion

Their is really no reason
For them to join this dominion
Unless in each dream or vision
We take life without derision

For like the butterfly free
Knowing its real destiny
We’re unaware if we are he
And he, conscious of this reality


Gate of Hell, Gate of Heaven

From the depth of Hell I descend
Rising in contradiction to Heaven
I feel myself no more
Why do either have gates
For you need not to enter
Both are in every second we leave
Both are in our hearts ever present
Neither master seek my soul
For it's mine to bring forth
With every choice unspoken
Written in stone unturned
Can I only ascend by rejecting
The one that offers so much
Accepting a truth not my own
I thirst for a knowledge forgotten
Dreaming of wisdom existing
Never lost in time but in our minds
Connected we can through our souls
I'm not ready to transcend my life
Yet see God in all time
The day will come when the Master
Will show me the path to myself
Until then I trust far beyond life
In an mixed representation of Truth
Where each one of us believes we fathom
Our uniqueness eternally connected
Thinking than in the others we serve
We reach closer to those skies
Yet unknowing that in tradition written
Whatever we do leads to glory
Pray for me at the Gate of Hell
Pray for me at the Gate of Heaven
For when these doors finally open
It is you, you will see coming in


Black & White

No issues are always so clear
That you can't find grey in them
Yet in all that you hold so dear
What's black & white you blame

In a reverse position taken
No morale can be so brilliant
As the strength forsaken
Of an ungodly argument

It is a slight common fallacy
That we all take for granted
As truth that our personality
Is what God commanded

Why then all discussions
Not destined to contribute
Result in the absolution
Of the one we pay tribute

In black & white one lives
Till life catches his breath
Then in a thought it forgives
Till we're born into death

Brightness

None so bright
As the sun
Yet all yearn
To be right

Who cares earns
A life defined
True and aligned
With he who learns

As wisdom burn
In heart alive
Before we arrive
We chose to run

Bright as a flash
Our lives tested
Bring the rested
To the cache

Brightness falls
In eyes blinded
To a truth aged
As each recalls


The Love Letter

Never show your love letters
To one who knows love not
He will trample what matters
And before soon forgot

Such words are secret
Coded in a life of another
Expressed without regret
In the passion of the hour

Blessed are you if you write
Such love, such music
To be lived with delight
Eternal beyond logic

Everyday practice your life
Just as you would write
Words of love to your wife
Or a poem for your knight

Love’s passion and decision
We all need to take side
One a flame, one a vision
Both united, so decide



We’re all Merchants

Trust the free hand that feeds
Nations of poor and rich alike
Regardless of all the deeds
Put on those they don't like

A need for food before destiny
Makes a limited world go round
And for many, the smell of honey
Turn their sad souls around

Silver and gold in itself not evil
Can easily take us from reality
For as soon as we are able
We turn time into money

Yet why that search stumbles
When riches fully accumulated
Bring us in full view of angels
Showing us what we planted

We’re all merchants,
In that you can trust
As you fall to judgments
Keep your soul off lust

Your Scent

It’s the pure love of an animal
Transcending time and reason
Bring our deeper self sensual
Unstopped by social convention

You lie in full length facing far
Smooth back breathing in a wave
Skin barren shining like a star
Glistening sweat we both crave

Lips approaching in certainty
Following endless legs till
The depth moist and free
Calls for nothing but a shrill

Touching curves in a caress
Your hips quivering in unison
The breasts of you, goddess
Pointing in sensual perfection

Eyes in eyes, our lips engaged
Each first contact of your scent
A perfume sensibly undamaged
Leaves us shivering yet content

Ending in a interlaced kiss
Of six and nine in rapture
Reaching first true bliss
Over and over, so pure

A Word

Can a word make a difference
When each kills or loves equally
A look, in the word's defense
Can be as promising, as deadly

But asking to have a word stands
An expression truly unloved
Hiding behind a veil that offends
As soon as it is mentioned

What about words unsaid
Do they carry such power
When in fact they are dead
In the heart of the thinker

The right word is a blessing
Yet so few want to speak it
Unwillingness or bad timing
We blame facing the killed spirit

Words evolve with our thoughts
To match a civilization unwilling
To accept its role in onslaughts
Of the next genius’ killing

A word of wisdom is truth
Orally told since ancient time
So many exists to sooth
Each life claiming ‘I am’

Chose your words carefully
They carry your soul to all
Never dream of beauty
Unless you can stand tall


The Knowledge

Know little, know too much, but know
For any knowledge is as above, so below
Trust that such savoir of who we are
Is a reflection of ourselves from afar

A link to our past, present and future
The desire to know is your banner
Carry it proudly in rain and snow
Bring it where no one else can go

To know more is simple, desire it
Feel it deeply until you know it
Without question or shallow doubt
It will make you what you are about

Start with data to be turned into info
Carry on till it is something you know
Then use it in life and make it wisdom
This is the wheel of a new born freedom

Once you’ve started to learn from life
Realise soon you can learn from strife
For booth good and bad are teachers
Pay specially attention to failures

Knowledge is a true beauty sublime
For its value is as yours as it is mine
And when we share it among others
We know that others is all that matters









It Doesn't Make Sense

It has finally downed on me
The world doesn't make sense
If it did, none would follow thee
Nothing would be truly intense

Logic and its enemy live closely
Misunderstood each fear the other
Yet with just one, we die slowly
For each is an unwilling brother

Seek one and you'll soon find
That they always come in pair
Isn't illogical that such a bind
Is what we need to be aware

Making sense is over rated
Who knows what we’re fated
Until such day, I fear sanity
Especially of those too brainy

Regal in a world senseless
Where each is so bless
That reason must be lost
At all known but one cost

It Doesn't Make Sense
And from now on hence
Let’s live with certainty
And love logic and folly

Beauty

Beauty in all myths lives
But in your heart captive
To thoughts eternal and old
That no one can uphold

Behind another’s shadow
With pity you follow
What others thought
Unaware, untaught

Your life alone is beauty
No other has your story
Stop and watch the soul
That made you whole

You long for recognition
In the crowd’s absolution
Yet you, without a mind
Can sadly be so blind

The beauty you seek
Is the domain of the weak
Ignore it and truly lust
For life or God if you must

For life will love you
Respect as we all do
Your inner beauty
That gift of deity

You are a goddess
And in your prowess
We’ll all love you too
Without further ado


Flash of Truth

Every second counts
In each, life flaunts
Are you ready to live it
Or are afraid to commit

In many such moments
A truth of all constants
Passes in a divine flash
Hitting our soul with a clash

Honestly, it’s hard to see
For we prefer the fallacy
Of a shivering reality
Sealed in familiar obscurity

Yet in your daily question
Some without any reason
You feel life blossoming
In you, you are becoming

No one knows when such a flash
Will come and your life wash
So live as if your tomorrow
Could only exist in the flow


The pain will go away

The pain will go away
This is your first tear

The pain will go away
It is not that severe

The pain will go away
An angel is near

The pain will go away
Your Mummy will cheer

The pain will go away
Your daddy is here

The pain will go away
We love you so dear

The pain will go away
Don't ever fear



Strange, weird even

It is strange, weird even
That we see our lives
Less deserving of heaven
Less deserving to survive

There is beauty in oddity
No one knows why for sure
But we’re attracted to folly
For hate or even pleasure

Life itself is truly strange
Mainly to the untrained eye
Without measure, love change
As it happens to all who fly

Having never met a sane one
It is hard to judge who’s right
To those wishing they’d won
Be driven by the desire for light

We’re all strange to another
So many views or opinions
Some attractive, some sadder
But all are relevant, all are options






Depth of a limited mind

In the depths of my limited mind
I see all that there is to see
Beauty, ugliness, and frankly
It’s the blind leading the blind

Possessing all knowledge there is
Yet knowing absolutely nothing
I live in all that joy can bring
Forgetting all real civilities

I am a fool you see, with ambition
To ridicule both learned and stupid
With wisdom truly rancid
And mold the world to my vision

And what I know you live daily
Trusting a shallow god
Whose perception is so broad
That no one can be happy

There is a gate we can all take
But who’s ready to close their past
Preferring to lie and have a blast
Rather than dealing with their mistake

I have depth in this mind of mine
And an expertise in ignoring it
Waking simply to what we admit
Is wrong but feels so divine

I might learn something today
Use it to confirm my ignorance
As you would when in trance
And yet knowing it’s the way



Believe

Believe in God almighty
And the power of the tree
For whatever your destiny
You write you prophecy

Of all the knowledge
Even one of usage
Trust in the privilege
To be in his image

Yet in us we forget
Thinking life is set
In a past we offset
To a future we regret

Many can teach you
To believe in you
But only one can do
As others would do unto

It is hard to believe
That we can achieve
What we can conceive
What we can perceive


People who smile

People who smile have a beauty
That those who don't, have not
Smiling to all brings true reality
To hearts who've lost the plot

People who smile are refreshing
Always a step ahead of all of us
Trusting in their instinct, believing
Life’s better when you’re gracious

People who smile see daylight
In ways we can only imagine
Perceiving with divine delight
Life in the scent of a jasmine

People who smile never fear
What the common man does
For to them the end is so clear
If we knew, we’d make noise

People who smile can never fade
For in our heart they’ll forever be
Giving us solace we want to evade
As such blessing makes us too happy

People who smile are within reach
They cross our path against our will
And deep inside we know they teach
All to smile and to stand still


The Dichotomy of Good and Evil

How do you cope with the constant dichotomy
The will to do good and ability to be evil
Wrapped into one soul, one mind preferably
With little room for anything but being on the level

These two sides of the same lives unwritten
For destiny belongs to those who take it
Yet the choice of the path unbeaten
Is yours, is mine, even if we never meet

Suffering in silence, keeping the shame alive
We fight good, we fight evil, without thinking
Our hearts dying to see their end arrive
For then the questions will start dying

Of the seven we all fall guilty without prejudice
Each powerful enough to destroy all hope
Yet we let each one in turn face the justice
Of a mind that aims to cut our only rope

Good and Evil are forever brothers in arms
Strangling the last bastion of life we have
Constantly destroying all with their charms
Giving us hope, and yet making us starve

There is irony in such an immemorial fight
But are you truthfully ready to accept it
For it will shatter your very birthright
I have to admit, neither truly exist



Delayed Gratification I

Delaying gratification
Even for no reason
Than to enjoy later
What we’re after

Waiting for pleasure
In a minute, in an hour
Seems hedonistic
What makes you tick?

As a child with passion
All I needed was action
Now and never later
Or it’ll be hard to capture

As time brought reason
Hurting that notion
That to be happy
I must behave selfishly

Now refraining daily
From a life ungodly
Feeling often elated
Yet not as the departed

Delay gratification
A true life canon
One rule to live by
Even without a why


Delayed Gratification II

Delaying gratification
In itself a simple joy
Few have the reason
Preferring to annoy

Physical or spiritual
In this life or the next
Pleasure is eternal
Often used as a pretext

Chose the experience
And liberate your soul
You’re without defense
When facing it whole

So go forth and trust
With a clear mind
That this ancient thrust
Belongs to all mankind



Light of Reason

Can the light of reason be trusted
When the spirit is so strong
Neither holds life undefeated
Till both accept to be wrong

Logical emotions abound
In lives mimicking nature
Stunned by a truth profound
Each a past of its future

When did we see that facts
Plain, strong and purely white
Never explained why we act
Against all we believe to be right

We think we act rather sensibly
Each time we destroy another
Aiming to please egoistically
The façade that makes us braver

Never rely on reasoning alone
The chant of a siren long dead
Who voice doubt has sown
In a heart that all souls dread


Who’s who

This life wasn’t designed
For angry unpleasant idiots
Who in wisdom are resigned
To act has forgotten helots

We are one among all
Unique yet unimportant
Unless we walk tall
Claiming what’s dormant

Possessing all there is
In a soul and a mind
We prefer to appease
Gods who are blind

It would take little
To express our power
Given by an angel
At the birth hour

For this you must search
Your talent, your gift
Or be left in the lurch
Passing a life swift

Who is who is the list
Composed of all souls
Who know they exist
To lift-up their goals




Each Tree, Each Rock

Under each tree, each rock
Sits a little angel, little devil
A member of its own flock
Leading us to be beautiful

There is a spirit in all things
A force stronger, weaker
Destined to pull strings
Turning man's affairs blur

You don't see them really
But their strength is felt
In all that you blindly see
As you make your life melt

They were here before us
Yet we live as this was ours
Being wise, they don't fuss
Knowing we're short in hours

Nature is our teacher
In all that we need
Helping us to go deeper
In all that we bleed


Mission

Why don't I know why I am here
Can't we born with our mission
Why do we need to learn to fear
To establish ourselves within reason

We come naked in a world unknown
With a spirit tainted by a past forgotten
Yet when life comes to be full blown
We start again with thoughts unforgiven

What would life be if all its souls
Would be aware without questions
Living, not searching to be whole
Being the light, not sinking into oblivion

Are you jealous of the child so clear
That he knows which road is his
While we struggle and die a martyr
To a cause blown by the breeze

Oh, I which to know my path
Without seeking a darken light
That a lost mind brings in wrath
Punishing all in a last fight

It is written that to know your mission
You need to know your passion
And in the end, it's the reason
That to know such, make a decision

Pure Derision

Is everything so serious
That we'd be so devious
Why don’t we let things roll
Enjoy life and have a ball

Where is the real balance
Between reality and trance
When we live a life pious
Turning us into a beast furious

The reality of all logic
Is that time is frantic
Never ending its course
Taking all as a source

Trying to be pure ourselves
Even if few know themselves
Feeling lost at every turn
Yet each a chance to learn

Life is nothing like we think
Yet in the mind hides the link
Connecting us to all there is
Shaping shapeless destinies

Live all days in pure derision
Meet all and make a connection
For once that second is gone
We’ll all be second to none


Love Blind

In each thought I undress
Your soul to my mind
What would God bless?
As we make love blind

By whatever name
A feeling never lost
Buried deep in blame
At whatever the cost

Love all and always
There is nothing else
Not the end of days
Could a heart caress

What do you see
When love dies
But the humility
Of tears and cries

Love is a decision
So choose wisely
Make it a mission
To love blindly

We Know Less

We know less today than we did before
Yet we’re halfway to bring it to the fore
Unashamed of a past we ignore
It is time to let that knowledge pour

Why did we forget what we knew?
Unaware that for each word we argue
A trace of wisdom paid its due
To a kind that regrets what was true

Most believe that we know so much today
‘Forget the science and folklore of yesterday
They were from minds mostly laid astray
By superstition and beliefs’ they say

Yet every time my mind expends
I feel a source that life transcends
Something taking me to all ends
Letting my true self ascends

In each of these moments of vision
The old knowledge enters into friction
With a reality that gives little option
To stories and dreams of passion

But to deny or keep on living as we do
Does not erase what was once a virtue
None can subdue the Akashic clue
Especially if life we want to renew

We know less today than we ever did
That much is true, none can forbid
That you should trust all but the id
Known by none but a kid

Fleeting Moment

We met again on a fleeting moment
Destiny's hand or careless thought
Brought us together, rather silent
A pair of stranger than neither sought

Longing to connect and explore our lives
Counting minutes till they reached the hour
Hesitating hope, what if the heart arrives?
But for you, searching is a lone endeavour

You are someone who's only fault, if any
Is to notice, reach out and disappear
Can a relationship be formed in envy?
Or is short term loneliness the true fear?

One can never know what you think
And the question arises in the same bit
Do you know what makes you click?
Or believe life to be a knowing spirit?

That fleeting moment is now long gone
I’ll never know what you felt that day
Or if those hours seemingly withdrawn
Will ever happen again someday

More Beautiful

Hate's never more beautiful
Than the day you stand accused
Of something you’ve lived in full
Knowing that you’ve been bruised

Love’s never more beautiful
Than when overcome with sorrow
We realise that to be truthful
We need others more than they know

Life’s never more beautiful
Than in yourself you trust
Forgetting what’s awful
Tasting what’s purest

Death’s never more beautiful
Than when none remember it
Moving like a born old angel
Into oblivion as death we cheat

You are never more beautiful
Than when you know who you are
Seeing in you what’s crucial
Knowing we’re of the same star

Forest of Errors

Each error that we make
Is like a tree with roots deep
Keeping us grounded, awake
In the moment, yet asleep

Keep your heart open to errors
Know that when you stop trying
You are invisible as all traitors
Slaves to their souls dying

Life is in the errors we learn
Knowing full well that we yearn
For success, love and respect
In as much as we can expect

My mind is a forest of errors
Unaware that so many trees
Aren’t at the centre of horrors
But beauty that life frees

Each defining an experience
But none alone define me
All simply part of the dance
That brings me to reality


Wrongly Accused

I stand wrongly accused
With not reason to escape
Facing a crowd amused
By those who play to wait

I’ve been accused before
Of deeds truly forgotten
Often guilty at the core
Accepting, denying often

Yet there is nothing worse
To be found guilty wrongly
Knowing that such curse
Comes from a soul ugly

Alas, to be in such position
Positioned by prior acts
Forcing an unfair decision
Despite the latest facts

Worse still would it be
If I accused wrongly
Another just like me
Leaving me guilty


You can never go home

You can never go home
Words so true, so real
Even an author phantom
Still knows how we feel

Crossing paths I once knew
Remembering the same corner
Seeing with a different view
Hard to believe we’re one sinner

Here is the road our mothers took
It was as real as the picture is to me
A moment in time, a glance, a look
Warm yet frozen beyond all eternity

Here is my house, my father’s love
Empty of promises yet standing
I sense all the seconds far above
Any pitiful sadness of its reality

These are stones that no one wants
The home I belong to is simply me
With time that my family still haunts
Deep inside our own true trilogy

You can never go home
So the wise believe
But what we truly own
Is what we truly live


Comedy of Errors

Aim to control your universe
Simply ask for what you need
And it will bend to your verse
As long as you know your creed

For you see, it is precise and orderly
Everything is in its place, always
And for those who wake early
Life cannot cease to amaze

Beware though not to hurt
Others even an unknown
For whatever your subvert
Will never leave you alone

Beware also not to ignore it
For all days will seem wasted
Remain upbeat, join the elite
Of the tested and the trusted

Never forget a truth so basic
That life is itself a comedy
Where an error, if truly unique
Shows to all that you’re ready



The Shallow of Death

Enter my domain he who life wants
Will you dare realise your true self
Dying to old habits or each flaunts
As the shallow of death is in itself

Death into life, life into death
Circling each second, each soul
As a phantom’s stinking breath
Hovering around us whole

Why fear what we don’t know
When it was said before time
We would disappear and follow
Into ourselves, hence the crime

Fear nothing but the dogma
That teaches hate as love
As from Alpha to Omega
All is the same as above

In the shallow of death we meet
For none alone is truly another
Living the same life as we greet
God in every action we bother


My Grandparents

They were here before us
Learning life as we should
Never faltering and thus
Teaching us as they could

Their thoughts and tears
Live in us, happy or sad
Washing away all fears
We never thought we had

I carry them deep in me
In words gentle and awful
They were human and godly
And now, simply beautiful

Why do call them grand
And treat them with disdain
Ignoring their life bland
As there is nothing to gain

Wise beyond thoughts
Knowing life as itself
They pass into naught
Before we know our self

I know they are here
In every child’s laughter
In each thought so dear
Yet I miss them only after


Chemistry

Chemistry is the start
Nothing happens without it
What are you looking for?
What's beyond it?
Where do souls touch?
Can you command it?
Once you’ve answered these
You’ll know love as it is
In life and pain
In hate and passion
It’s often one sided
But works better in pair
With no one to blame
You are however bland
Till you’ve met a soul
Whose resonance is yours
And in every beat of your mind
You’ll feel truth in your heart
Unless what you felt
Disappears as you go
Leaving them untouched
And you in heart-rehab
Unaware that love
Is better in your past
Thank never in your future
Be as you are, whole in all
For you can’t fake chemistry
Neither can you trigger it
It comes when it wants
It goes even faster
But at every turn
The truth is simple
You need to be alive
Fully in the game
To find it true
Leading to love
Or deep insanity
Either way you prefer
Always go beyond
You and I



The Artist

Few lives will ever touch you
Like the fate of the artist
Who in colours of songs knew
Shows what it is to be a purist

In a song, they’ll paint our lives
In deeper meaning than we can
Aiming simply to feel alive
As we live without a plan

With a few strokes of colours
They bring us to be others
Whose dreams and closures
Mark the sand with our prayers

We all should aspire to release
The artist that we all must be
If in our fate we trust with ease
Then let your talent be free

Why kill the spark before it’s born
With poor attempts to please all
Don’t you know you can’t forewarn
A dying talent waiting to be whole


Forgive the lie

Forgive the lie meant to hurt you
As I know not where it came from
With such thoughts ugly and taboo
Baring witness to what is torn

A lie of any colours, even white
Can only come back to haunt
Those who started the fight
Those who know not their want

When is a lie acceptable then?
To save the child forced to die?
To save the genius from madmen?
Or simply never, don’t ask me why

In a dogmatic world, black and white
No one knows if lies or truth rule
No priest, no man, no knight
Owns it, yet each is so cruel

There is no excuse, you see
To forgive the lie we flaunt
Baring your soul politely
To a desire we want

Is forgiving so divine
That few truly do so
For a life truly sublime
Wouldn’t you be a hero?


Pointless

Nothing in life is so pointless
That all will claim it to be so
In a moon, a sun, so restless
Each wanting to be their hero

Yet there are many such time
Where our action are a little less
Irrelevant when in your shrine
You are the God, the Goddess

Some knows in their heart
Life can seem a pointless path
That without first to depart
We would be but a farce

There is not point to argue less
Than what we’re truly here for
To change the lives of those we bless
To pay respect to all forevermore

So here is the end, the beginning
In which each lives to their fullest
With each road a mere crossing
To a point where you can only rest

And the love you give in all that
Is the gift you receive in return
For a bit of trust and a chat
Regardless of the point you earn



Disappointment

He who disappoints rarely knows
For such self-knowledge, it is said
Will teach you to reap what one sows
And show what you truly dread

To live with disappointment is a gift
For unless you leave your heart open
You'll never know the love swift
As friends, lovers and family deepen

Fear, if you've never felt this way
As you do not love at all
You hide behind a life all day
And make loneliness a call

Disappoint if you must but avoid
Blaming the other for such mistake
It's not their fault if you're so devoid
Never to see, never to ache

Best though to live by your word
Even if such choice is your pain
Than to break a bond by the sword
And die in ignorance, in vain





In the Balance

In the balance between good and evil
We choose to be fairly undecided
Chasing the thrill of the first missal
Lost in the thought of the full blooded

Each act, each dream we transmit
Balances between two worlds
One we can barely admit
The other, at us hurled

Yet there is beauty in choosing
As we are an animal of the kind
Preferring destiny to killing
The idea that we could be blind

Should we live in the middle?
Would that be a life balance
Never to experience the riddle
Never to experience the dance

I hold your life in the balance
For without me you wouldn’t be
A without you I have no essence
I need you, to be able to see
Shouting

Nothing can be solved by shouting
Yet it often feels like a release
Good and bad in a single voicing
Satisfying the bringer of disease

But if done alone on a mountain
Screaming a your lungs' top
With no one to ever blame
Feel the strength of the yawp

Then, and only then, shout
Let it all go into the breeze
Bring it all like a devout
Let your soul be at ease

But never shout at a loved one
For both will feel such regrets
One, to have killed the swan
The other, that you ever met

Shouting is an inner gift
Bringing the dream into life
Letting all souls go adrift
Away from the sea of strife

Isis

Of earth shallow and deep
Stands the Goddess of old
Without tears, we weep
For Isis so fragile, so cold

She’s our mother, our home
Blessed in all nature’s beauty
We can’t live, we can’t own
What we are in earth’s destiny

Oh Isis, take my hand
Show me your ways
In every wheat strand
As in all flower ablaze

Know me in every step
As I know you in all days
Trust me when you wept
The loss of Sundays

Let my soul rest in you
Forever one in all
All of you will not do
If we don’t block the fall

Isis, sister, mother, lover
Child of the single spark
A moment in strange hour
Take us away from the dark

Sail on

Of earth, fire, wind and water
We sail far from the truth
That to resist the sad hour
We drift away from youth

Such beauty in earth’s end
Never reaching its limits
As you get it in your hand
You’re back to your habits

The wind is in your soul
Softly speaking, lamenting
Wanting to make you whole
Even against God willing

In the circle of true earth
Lies each of our destinies
Source of so many births
Life of so many glories

Sail on, never look back
Extend, expand your horizon
Never consider the track
That takes away your demon



Sail Forth

Sail far from your horizon
To the lands of dreams
Is it true reality or fiction
As nothing is what it seems

Sail the globe once at least
See how it’s all different
Even make your own list
Learn why we’re all brilliant

Sail far from a life ignorant
Where you know it all
Discover what’s blatant
Before it leads to your fall

Sail with so many hearts
Seeking what is real
Take away the charts
That make you kneel

Sail, go forth and regret
To not have done it before
Why did you wait so late
To bring your soul to the fore

Sail among the sky and sea
The same colour rules all
It never was what you see
It’s what you seek, that’s all

Ignorance

So little do we know
Yet we ignore the fact
That for all to grow
We need to act

Ignoring that truth, I swear
Is not good for all life
As we ignore, we bear
The fruits of bloody strife

Ignoring ignorance kills
As each passing thought
Let a poorly set freewill
Avoids what it ought

But how do we know
If we are ignorant
Will you tell me so?
Or is it blatant?

Learning is a right
Squandered by most
While others fight
Ignoring their faults

Let ignorance be
A word we forget
As we finally see
It’s not hard to brake


To Kill a Crow

In the ascent of the sun
Following the daily path
A crow stood, didn’t run
And died without wrath

He, she, now lives in me
Part of my sold destiny
The folly of his psyche
Is now my cross indelibly

The crow is but a symbol
Of uncertain, dual meaning
Whether you believe in an apple
Or seek your spiritual being

But the crow in this story
Is personal, he is mine
As I am now his, for eternity
Two lives in the same line

Never was it written
That today we would kill
One another, then smitten
In lives dynamically still

This is not luck bad or good
For his short life means more
Than superstition as it stood
In front of me, proud forevermore


Mixed Feelings

When do you like a soul
When do you like not
Feelings mixed, not whole
As in someone you forgot

Can you please everyone
Should you even bother
Do you focus on anyone
Or on you, would you rather

We meet so many in life
To choose a true friend
A God, husband or wife
Let your heart ascend

In each such relation
Feelings are often mixed
Lost in the short elation
For ourselves we fixed

There is but enough time
To focus on one trilogy
Made, it’s rather sublime,
Of God, friends and family


Love Springs

Love springs when you least expect it
Look for it, seek it and it will elude you
There is no explanation for such logic
Yet we all know it to be universally true

Love is a fountain without beginning
It ends never, none can own its charms
It’s a siren eternally blessed in seducing
All that comes and fall into its arms

At least once, you must have met
Thinking this was the real world
Yet as the door closed on a sunset
You must have in life been hurled

Love is the bed-sister of pain
If you let it destroy your core
Be yourself yet never be the same
And the dawn Goddess you’ll adore

Love springs when you least expect it
Showing earthly beauty in all its glory
And if one day should you show merit
It will be you that she will marry

Lyrics

Listen to the lyrics of some of them
And you'll never be the same
They speak of a time of despair
When joy could be found everywhere

Songs are a gift of the God unknown
A present that saves all lovers forlorn
A sound celestial in all its blessings
Giving hope, thanks to one who sings

Yet in the those magical minutes
We forget that a hurt soul disputes
All that we stupidly take for granted
Before our hearts stand arrested

Words give life to a few notes
That each soul faithfully emotes
Given entirely to a self higher
Than the one in one another

Lyrics in their fake simplicity
Are the birth of our reality
Played over and over again
When from ourselves we refrain


No longer friends

We were friends once, but no longer
We were four, always together
Each different but trusting the other
We knew the town in all its power

Then the day came, uninvited
One had to go, all saddened
Then the second, departed
Until two were left, unwanted

We were brothers yet unaware
That such link hurts those who dare
Open a vein, use blood and swear
That nothing can ever that link tear

The scar is not as deep
As the pain felt when I weep
On my lost brothers' wit
Never to be seen at the sit

We’re no longer friends
As a shooting star would end
We live apart, never to defend
The bond that had to end

Talking too much

Can one truly talk too much
There’s so much to be said
Can two listen as such
That neither will be afraid

We often talk with so little
Neither wit nor thought
Can save us in battle
If we forget what was taught

We wait for the baby to speak
Then wonder if he’ll ever stop
For children love to seek
The fable world of Aesop

Then we ask the question
Unaware of the lost reason
That we once had the notion
All could be solved in discussion

Speak, it is your birthright
Give your opinion to the stars
Every thought, even when right
Enjoy developing your own scars

Don’t take others with you

Kill yourself if you must
But others do not take
If you’ve lost life’s lust
Do it alone, for our sake

In the act, see no shame
For it must be courage
As we take the blame
For your poor message

Yet, isn’t it the coward
Who stops dead in its path
Rather than move forward
Afraid of his own wrath

Neither is right nor wrong
It is the way of a soul
Deciding it’s not strong
And moves to its next role

And here it the only rule
End your life as it came
Alone, for you are cruel
If the life of another you claim


Do no wrong

Do no wrong, a law so pure
That few really comprehend
For the reason to endure
In it you must stand

In a lover's eyes, the other
Can never do any wrong
Reality simply doesn't matter
When feelings are so strong

Yet to live in such a principle
You must know the difference
Between chaos and the simple
As nothing's left to chance

But what is wrong, what is right
If what you think counters mine
As we unwillingly enter into a fight
With the same thought divine

Do no wrong, a simple law
Given to us to cherish
As we ignore the ego
That would make us perish


Sub Rosa

Can you keep a secret?
Knowing you'd regret
The decision as soon
The sun meets the moon

There was once a rose
Whose five petals arose
To show us the way
That takes us away

Our earth shadow
Won’t let us know
The meaning of God
In this simple abode

In a sense of five
One less to be alive
The rose explodes
As life itself decodes

Believe in both brothers
For their will be others
Ready to teach sub rosa
As love ignores the dogma



Loosing a friend by choice

How can the loss of a friend by choice
Hurt so much, cutting deep within my soul
How can I let pain have a voice?
I’m bored confused, yet enjoying it all

Lost a friend today, a friendship rather
To no fault but sheer ignorance
That an opened door like no other
Can shut faster than silence

No more friends. It's simpler
A new motto for the happy
Staying alone with no other
Never to say you’re sorry

Within second of that thought
We can all see the fallacy
That for others we have fought
So true friends we need, absolutely

Killing a friendship is like dying
We turn around and think
Why on earth did a small sting
Made us change in a blink





I've broken all commands

I've broken all commands
Used up all sins
And no one can tell me
If who I am is bad or wrong
For everyone that judges me
Has sins to account and attune for
There is never been a better time
To express one's fault
To die for a cause unsacred
At the altar of pain, of sanity
Where few stay but all languish

I've broken all commands
There is nothing to retain me
No one to hold me back
And no one to hurt anymore
Today, each step is but forward
Unable to see what was yesterday
Its value gone forever
And no knowledge gained from it

I've broken all commands
Rejoicing in the choice
Never despair in mistakes
They come, they go
Often to realise
That such idiotic behaviour
Was a blessing
Often but not always disguised
In truth, I fear making none
Living a life so dull
In which I can never say
I've broken all commands



You shall be known

You shall be known by your questions
And how well you pay attention
To each thought, each word
As you live by a pen, by a sword

You shall be known by your thoughts
Are they helping the one they ought?
Or each increase your separation
Form the divine, from your mission

You shall be known by your intentions
Whether they stay or lead all to action
For nothing can be worth it today
If you don't do what you say

You shall be known by your friends
Even those whose life doesn't depend
On you to stand proud till the end
Safe with head deep in the sand

You shall be known by each mistake
Whether they make you awake
For with each fork in the road
You’ll see the prince in the toad


Your Philosophy

Loose yourself in your own thoughts
Never let anyone in who shouldn't be
In this mirage of life we thought
A perfection of others we never see

Is what you say written in deeds
Or do you excel in empty oration
For all words are but the seeds
Of a thousand and one questions

Develop your own philosophy
As you ensure it’s never stale
But if you are aiming for glory
Your thoughts will be to no avail

Is your culture rooted in time
Or an excerpt of a minute
Each moment rather sublime
Aimed to never stay put

Each man before you
Thought what you know
You have to be of value
To all and you also




Unwritten, Unspoken

Say no more
All has been said
Write no more
All has been played

There is wisdom
In what's unwritten
And no boredom
In what's unspoken

For a simple word
Men died in trove
In the absurd
Of the lies they wove

Each of us know
Not all can be said
For we all grow
When we are dead

Say no more
All has been said
Write no more
All has been played


Controlled Destiny

Do you believe in your star
A dark single point of light
With the power to take you far
Or do you wait and sit tight

Whether destiny controls you
As you decide your own fate
There is nothing you can do
Till you reframe your mindset

Can your life be in the sky
Unable to change as you go
Slave to a master's why
Pupil to nothing that is so

Yet we are fools to believe
That we control anything
For every thought is the sieve
Of a light that needs to sing

And here lies the beauty
We must aim to control
What none can see
To release our soul


Lux et Cognitio

Light is true knowledge
Just as in each sun ray
Resides a seed, a pledge
Of each season we pray

Knowledge is the light
Of each soul's reason
Overwhelmingly bright
Incapable of treason

For every idea you learn
Stand a future given
For reason we yearn
Till we take to heaven

Give light to every soul
There is not truer calling
As each turns into its role
Aware of their blessing

There is a paradox yet
To know, you can't learn
Lest you truly forget
And be ready to listen


Thinking Alone

Sometimes alone, never lonely
Thinking of things otherworldly
Most of them rather silly
Aiming to simply be

Using foolishness or logic
Thinking can be dramatic
Thoughts healthy or sick
Nothing’s real, all’s cryptic

We can never think alike
Not all will you ever like
Let your ego take a hike
Never to be the first to strike

We can hold evil and good
Doing more than we should
Thinking less than we could
Never to reach sainthood

You can only think alone
Whether young or grown
From birth to your stone
Your thoughts are your own



I don't have the will

I don't have the will
To ignore how I feel
To let another's reason
Erase my passion

I don't have the will
To remain bland, still
In the face of time
Killing all in their prime

I don't have the will
To make an evil deal
Simply to ease the pain
Of an act I could refrain

I don't have the will
To stand here and chill
When children cry
As we let them die

I don't have the will
To be anything but real
For to be your friend
I have to be till the end



Think, Speak, Act

Think
For there is no greater truth

Speak
For there is no greater gift

Act
For there is no greater reality




I sat there

I sat there all afternoon
Chocked, distraught
I sat there all afternoon
More alive than I ought

I said nothing to no one
And felt their lives passing
I said nothing to no one
Some aware, some dying

I look into their eyes
And saw nothing I knew
I look into their eyes
And felt a distance anew

I ignored the foolish few
Who thought I’d cared
I ignored the foolish few
For none would have dared

I lost myself and just sat
For reality needs no action
I lost myself and just sat
As my life’s at a junction

I’ll do it all over again
For now I know
I’ll do it all over again
As I reap what I sow


Emotions

To be a fool with emotions
To succumb with no reason
A dent in the face of time
A tear all but sublime

Our first breath is in pain
Ravaged by the slain
Of a timeless state
As we enter our fate

Our first feeling drives us
Makes us slaves and thus
To feel is to trust
That you are the wisest

Surely you might say
There has to be a day
When we will control
All but our soul

Yet look in our past
See that nothing last
But for what we feel
Today and we’re still

Please, never forget
Happy or upset
Leave the door ajar
As you emote, you are


Frozen Wall

It stood erect on a hill top
Once strong and forbidding
To barbarians put a stop
To its villagers protecting

Now standing open, fallen
A shadow of its glory
Stuck in time, frozen
A sad but lost memory

Built in strength for love
Stone by stone, by men free
It brought pride in strove
To all living in drudgery

It failed to a different cross
To beliefs not unknown
Cursed or blessed, in chaos
Like a belief we condone

Look in and see the past
Look out and the future lies
You will not be the last
The wall has made wise




Lies and liars

Does the liar lies
If the truth is his
Unbound by ties
That is our disease

Yet what is a lie
A truth unknown
For which you die
Before you've grown

Why be a liar
Is it by choice
Or to go higher
To change his voice

As for you hear
Are you better
Or do you fear
The flatterer

Try not to lie
Cause you can
On you, rely
Be a freeman

I know a liar
One I might be
Never wiser
Always friendly

But if you must
Do so for others
Kill the lying thrust
Don’t let them bother



Can't Resist

I can't resist talking nonsense
Nor to tell what's on my mind
Between the two I prance
Not knowing if I am blind

There is beauty in giving in
To five senses entrenched
Souls and mind in between
Where nothing is far fetched

Taught to obey the laws
Aimed to make us civil
Saying nothing of our flaws
As we become a god, a devil

Who can resist the folly
Of words and songs
As we cry to the beauty
That says nothing's wrong

Yet to resist is divine
As we know that love
Is in the bread, the wine
As we look in us above


Regress

One questions puzzles me more than most
Do we know now more than we did before?
Or do we spend the time as ghosts
Seeking what was once to the fore?

Imagine that today in fact we regress
Moving away from all there was to know
That each idea we take as progress
Takes us away from the true flow

The more we learn, the less we know
Seems to be the curse of all who learn
Who spend a lifetime in a path narrow
Realising they'll never reach what they yearn

Enjoy the irony that our lives seems to bring
We claim to be giants among lesser species
Yet we can't reach the simple chaotic harmony
Our lesser brothers experience without wishes

We are regressing as long as we believe
That we can learn our way out of this
While the real truth of adam and eve
Lies in simply being aware of what is

Be Careful of What You Know

Be careful of what you know
As it closes the doors of perception
Your ability to see true beauty
Requires the risk of unknowing

Knowledge is a true miracle
No one loses when it's shared
It is the source of all debacles
When ignored by he who dared

Yet we know less than we believe
And more than we dreamed off
We seem to forget how to live
If at the other’s power we scoff

It is a true alluring siren
Offering the promise of fate
To each who forgets and blame
Instead of owning their weight

But the biggest danger of all
Is to think we know what's right
And we realise, not until our fall
We know nothing worth to fight


The Truth Lies

The truth lies
Never saying what we want
But what is

The truth hurts
Not all of those who use it
Not even most

The truth seeks
You and I in all days
And finds nothing

The truth spares
Those who kill for it
And the others too

The truth screams
To be let free for all time
And hides in our heart

The truth thinks
Just as long as we love
We’ll be free

The truth knows better
Than to let us decide what is right
As we pass judgment

The truth lies
Never saying what we want
But what is

Give it all

Give it all whether you have it or not
Give it all whether she loves you or not
But for the love of God, give it all
Life's truly too short for half measures
A warm heart is simply not enough
Have passion. Or don't
If you don't, don't do
Let it go and seek
Seek for what makes you alive
Seek what few truly understand
That the life that you deserve is in you
Waiting to spring, waiting to turn you on

And this the point where most falter

Once you know what you're alive for
Give it all
Do what you have to do, alone if you must
With friends if you dare, with a loved one if you can
Never stop, never let another still your path
Never let your fear slow down what you are
And never let a god tell you what to think

No one but you will ever know if these words impact you
But they represent my whole philosophy
I have little to give you for my life is my own
But these words to burn you:

Give it all


You're the one you're looking for

You're the one you're looking for
No one else is who you are
Whether this life you hate or adore
It's the one that will take you far

We have so little time to live
So why change another
When all you need is forgive
And let go of the anger

Very few of us know it
But all we do is seek
And as you finally commit
In Godliness you'll peak

In your instincts trust
As much as your ego
As each moment adjusts
The path of your own flow

No one will ever think
In the way you deserve
If from mistakes you shrink
Don't expect to serve

You're the one you're looking for


Too Many

Too many screams
Too many dreams

Too many words
Too many swords

Too many reasons
Too many treasons

Too many possessions
Too many seasons

Too many people
Too many temples

Too many sights
Too many lights

Too many sounds
To many pounds

Too many feelings
Too many ceilings

Is that horrible? Is that wonderful?


Simple Truth

It's a simple truth
It is who we are
Known since youth
Need not look far

It is so simple
That many died
Asking the devil
To let them slide

Truth be told
Can never be
To be so bold
Will bring envy

Already aware
Of its power
To ask and dare
Shortens the hour

A truth so simple
None can know
Not even an angel
Not even the ego



The Voice

There are voices all around
But only one that is sound
The one you hear in your head
Telling you what has to be said

Do you hear a morning voice
That offers a different choice
A small word or a full speech
Listen, it's trying to reach

Don't be fooled, everyone
In our soul, we all have one
Whether to it you listen
Or its beauty you chasten

Pay attention for it is you
Who will pay what is due
The voice's only counsel
Is to show you are able

Yet we simply ignore
Its advice for we adore
Our mind in a sound
Where love abounds


Opinion

Keep you opinion to yourself
Yet share it with all you meet
They might put in on a shelf
Or use it to be complete

Do you have a friend
Who shares his opinion
On how you should fend
In life, love and passion

We all have such a soul
Who admires his views
Sharing beyond his role
With sole aim to confuse

While others truly matter
What you think is divine
Not worse, nor better
Than those you outshine

So what about you?
What is your opinion?
What would you argue?
If you talked without caution

Fear the Inner Journey

Fear the Inner Journey
Full of knights and dragons
Loosing and winning daily
Against your inner demons

Know that to touch God
We need to look inside
A thought rather odd
By which we must abide

So take the journey
And face your fears
Unless you're a phony
Who hides behind tears

It takes a mighty heart
To launch in the unknown
Very few actually start
To scared to be alone

Yet the path is never lonely
No matter which way we turn
Facing the ugly, the beauty
Of a mind learning to discern

So fear the inner journey
As it's the only pure way
To turn away from the baby
Who would rather stay

To Those Who Die

To those who die I say calmly
Remember us who stay behind
As we in hell are just too busy
Just as you were, unkind, blind

To those alive I say calmly
Remember not those who die
But think of their beauty
In a way that makes you cry

To those in between I say calmly
Choose now or forever be quiet
For very few are that unlucky
That another decides their fate

To those born today I say calmly
Live as if you were immortal
Whether as an eagle or a bee
Stay away from being normal

And to those who die daily
Never remains calm in adversity
Decide or find who you are
And embrace the bizarre

It Doesn't Matter

It doesn't matter what you believe
If you will never do nothing about it

It doesn't matter what you think
If you haven't thought it through

It doesn't matter what you say
If you don't believe in it

It doesn't matter what you do
If you don't have a purpose

It doesn't matter who you know
If no one remembers who you are

It doesn't matter who you are
If you don't love yourself

It doesn't matter where you are
If you don't know how you got there

It doesn't matter where you're going
If you're not aiming for the horizon

It doesn't matter what this poem says
If you don’t believe it

But most of all...

It doesn't matter



Fallen Flowers

Fallen flowers in the sunset
Memories of a time to be
Have we grown out of life yet?
Disinterested in what we see

A fallen tree once told me
Cry not, for this is the day
To create a new ancestry
As I live life's way

The majestic bird once shot
Wonders not of its future
But of his family’s pot
And the fate they'll endure

The fox hunted for pleasure
Wonders of our stupidity
Accepts its fate of the hour
One day it will be his glory

And a fallen man once declared
Forgive them for they know not
As the day break on us crossed
We know less than we thought


Stop Judging

Stop judging we're told
Is the only way to live
Yet from young to old
We judge all as thieves

They rob us of ourselves
Of the time spent on us
As each of us delves
In a fame truly bogus

How dare they steal minutes?
Better spent in self pity
How dare they, the brutes
Ignore our depraved reality

Truly, they should realise
Few actually know me
As my importance defies
Even the soul I carry

It's my time, don't judge
I waste it as I please
As I focus on the urge
To be happy, to be at ease


Can't tell you

I can't tell you what to do
Nor should you do the same
I can however give you a clue
As to what constitute our shame

I can’t tell you what to think
Even if I think I know better
For we’ll never be in sync
Unless we accept the other

I can’t tell you what to love
For this is your own destiny
No one can, even from above
As you’ve been given liberty

I can’t tell you where to go
Even if I know my own path
Don’t ask. I really can’t, even so
I might face your own wrath

I can’t tell you what to believe
Only you know your faith
Whether you’re happy or grieve
Choose, before all see your wraith



What would I give

What would I give to see him so
Proud of the feast, among friends
Surrounded by a pagan glow
Being alive in all weekends

He loved me. That I’ll always know
For so he said everyday till the end
And as life decided to forego
His soul keeps on making amend

I remember the days when we fought
For an idea than no one remembers
Yet to us, it was the goal of the naught
That made us ancient secret members

And for a rose unknown to all
We claimed a legacy without end
A power to host till the fall
The idea that all are God-sent

I loved him. That I’ll always know
Regardless of ghostly faults
As the state of the widow
Became too hard to exalt

What would I give to walk again
With a father that was here for me
Yet to be a giant among men
I better do the same for Marie


Your Cross

There is a cross out-there
You were born to bear
No one knows where
But it is yours to wear

Be proud for very few
Know what they must do
Lost to what is true
Seeing nothing through

Among ideas you must seek
Even if they believe you weak
For what’s in you is unique
So tell the truth, speak

Once found you must pray
For the strength to stay
On a course not your way
And we’ll meet you halfway

This is the cross’ message
That you must have courage
To seek and pay homage
To what will give you passage



Mad

The world is truly mad
To not think as I do
But what's really sad
I don't even know you

Who can claim to be sane
When we let others die
Why focus on fame
When so many sigh

I thought I was mad
As I chose to be free
It turned out to be a fad
That only I could see

Madness is a sane choice
And the beauty of it all
Is we can truly rejoice
Knowing we're so small

This doesn't make any sense
Unless you believe nothing
And it is without pretence
That I leave you breathing

Genuine

Blessed the man without sins
Truly rejoice in his demise
For as he finally begins
We drown in our own lies

Do you know someone so genuine
That his every thought counts
While our lives lie in ruins
Every pain he surmounts

What about the one who's right
Without malice or evil thought
Bringing the sun to the moonlight
He teaches what has been taught

And the one with a vision so clear
Investing his life in fullfilling it
While we spend our lives in high gear
Spinning endlessly, dying bit by bit

I can only dream of such a state
I was born with doubt in my soul
And as I try to control my fate
I know I can never be whole


Hold on

Hold on to your life
For it is yours
In joy and strife
In white, in colours

Hold on, never let go
Trust yourself always
Never let a shadow
Steal any of your days

Hold on alone if you must
There is no shame in it
Or hug someone you trust
And in them never quit

Hold on, never despair
You're never alone
When life seems unfair
Simply stand on your own

Hold on, a great advice
And if in life you care
Subject to hate or vice
Dream if you dare


Waiting

Waiting for those who never came
Wasting seconds of a life limited
Why be patient if you have no aim
What to say to those you doubted

Waiting for nothing is a sentence
Worse than death, worse than pain
For no one noticed your absence
As they had nothing to gain

Yet convention praises patience
As a gift from God to the lost
But how can he know silence
When he's never been crossed

So wait, or not. Who really cares
After all it is your death you live
But don't bother with your errs
If you’re incapable to forgive


Can you

Can you come to the truth
From two different ways
As nothing can truly sooth
Better than the same daze

And here lies certainty
We're all children of God
While we stand happy
We still like to be awed

Yet it's not a free ride
All share in the work
Regardless if you hide
Or even check the clock

We all can do what we need
There is only one secret
You have to make it a creed
And love what you get

Thinking you can is all there is
There is no other advice
And never forget to say please
To be polite is the only price



Random Acts of Life

Life is but random
No act was written
All seconds come
Some not too often

Is life truly random
How can we know
Whichever outcome
Will make us grow

But if it's written
Let us be unaware
Of the path beaten
Unless we like despair

It's not always easy
Anyone would attest
But we're all free
To react to each test

What did you think
When life passed by
Did you just blink
Or stood and said 'I'

Life is always fair
Even in hard times
So stay truly aware
And live in rhymes

Books

Burn the books that ignore your thoughts
Ignore the wisdom the elders brought
And as you believe in your simple intuition
You might reach the same higher reason

True knowledge is a gift of experience
A meditation in the realm of balance
Some believe that no books can suffice
Others, in it you'll find the right advice

In your life, a few books will truly matter
Among thousands, regardless of the author
Those that do, your life will redefine
In a way that will make you shine

Whatever you do, never a book judge
Against it, never hold a grudge
For one writes for himself first
And for others who in life thirst

There is a book for you out there
Written, or for you to write if you dare
It sits on a shelf or dwells in your dreams
Either way, no word is what it seems


Blame

Oh, how easy it is to blame another
To find solace in all their faults
Oblivious to our own anger
To the reason the pain assaults

Why should we be responsible
For their lack of common sense
Ah, the rats, the scoundrels
Can't they realise their offence

So we live our lives blaming all
Unaware than in each complaint
We become insignificant, small
Running away from our inner saint

When will we stop this stupid game
Realising that for all that we have
We're the source of what we became
No one else can be the salve

So today, let's change our fate
Take responsibility with every dawn
And decide what you will create
Aware, that on all you can rely upon

Lost it all

Had you lost it all
You'll never know
What you've missed
What you've left
What you've ignored
What you've hurt
What you've killed
What you've destroyed
So do not worry
What you need is here

Had you lost it all
You'll be sorry
You'll be confused
You'll be angry
You'll be hateful
You'll be revengeful
You'll be suicidal
And no one will know
If you'll ever be all right

Had you lost it all
Know that
You'll search again
You'll breathe again
You'll live again
You'll think again
You'll feel again
You'll dream again
And finally
You'll see again

Respecting jerks, rejecting wimps

Respect the jerk, for he knows who he is
Reject the wimp, as of that, he's unaware
In life you'll find them both with ease
Everywhere, as they often come in a pair

Why would I say such a thing to anyone
After all, shouldn't we chose our friends
To be as an Aphrodite or a suave Don Juan
Not as someone no one wants to defend

Yet among themselves, they love life
No one truly cares, so they're unaware
That they are the source of strife
That to be with them is to err

Yet, do we, the righteous ones
See a bit of ourselves in them
Suddenly aware that all at once
We are the jerk or wimp we condemn

So fret not as you go by your day
You might even see it as a perk
To meet your counterpart and say
You are a wimp, you are a jerk

Practice God's Presence

Finding God is easy
Accepting is hard
Finding God in reality
Is its own reward

Next time have a look
At a flower, a tree
A friend, a book
Till you finally see

It's in all in the practice
Of trusting God is there
Being at your service
Even when you err

Or is to his glory
that you live today
With nothing to worry
With nothing to say

One question remains
What will you do
Should God explains
That all is in you

Making Memories

As you turn to see
Where you have been
Will it be a memory
Of a life lived within

Surely not, for each destiny
Includes the lives of others
Unless each second was empty
Without even a laughter

What do you remember most
A scene, a sea, a painting
Or a friend who was a host
When you were left wanting

Neither is wrong, neither is right
Live as you would, without constraint
Simply remember, when comes the night
None of your choices can be a complaint

For your life to matter to all
Live it fully and create memories
As each experience will recall
All that is good in our stories

Violet Sun

At the threshold of colours
Where the invisible merges
The violet sun in all honours
Removes all personal cages

When two auras meet
As the nexus starts to form
In a negative or positive beat
Each begins to transform

The violence of such a feast
Provides life to all involved
Into the heart of the artist
Then in science all are dissolved

On each side of the violet range
Lives the same soul unaware
That even if all will change
Nothing steps out of the square

The violet sun in the centre
The triangle comes right next
The perfect circle in the outer
And the square in context

Here comes the ultimate symbol
Transcending life and death
Exuding what is truly noble
In each of our violet breath


Born with a sense of the divine

All born with a sense of the divine
As you see life in all that matter
Know each sun passing is the sign
That life is truly for the better

As the tree grows without a noise
Among his peers and family
With an ancient majestic poise
How insignificant is our destiny

As the bee's search to survive
For its own kind's greater good
Shows us that to really thrive
We can't think about Godhood

As the greed grows in all our hearts
We claim dominion over all things
We learn science and all the Arts
Hoping to be queens and kings

Turning each thought into religion
Thinking God made us discover truth
But in reality, oh lost sons of Sion
Nothing we do is truly smooth

Maturity

Why be mature?
When you have an inner child
Why do we endure?
What stops us from being wild

Isn't there joy
In all that we do
With or without a toy
In everything we renew

I was aware too soon
Of life's painful experiences
And today I attune
To the wisdom of the ages

Grow, but never forget
That in you lies the child
Willing to take the bet
That seriousness should be smiled

So

Why be mature?
When you have an inner child
Why do we endure?
What stops us from being wild

In a Moment

Life passes in a moment
And few remember why
They lived each instant
Without a single sigh

In a moment all changes
What was once a lively scene
Turns into macabre dances
As the songs become unseen

When that second turns forever
Never to exist but in our dreams
Reminiscing in the crucial hour
That can never be what it seems

I wish I knew what life was
Without so many corners
With dead flowers in the vase
Traces of family members

In a moment I'll give it all
To live again those seconds
Unaware of what would befall
If I'd unearth those diamonds



In The Moment

Without a future or past
I live for today fast
As the second leaves
The next one grieves

To be in the moment
You can't be absent
Do pay attention
To every action

For the moment you stop
And miss a single drop
Someone else moves on
In a breath, they're gone

There is no tomorrow
Worth living in sorrow
And no yesterday
Worth any delay

Be in the moment
Lead the movement
Never surrender
To the hour


Certainty Kills

Certainty kills without a doubt
Those who without reason
Unaware of their treason
As they follow their route

How can you be certain?
Of anything you think
The truth of the weak
The plea of the broken

What if you're wrong?
And your brother's not
Who's the better of the lot
If no one comes along

What is certainty?
But the thought of a fool
The creed by which rule
No one can be happy

Be certain of one thing
Love and don't look back
There is nothing you'll lack
No regret worth dying

So let certainty be the muse
Of those without a past
For nothing will last
Not even their virtues


Thinking Free

Think as you wish, for no one can say
Your thoughts are better, are worse
As we realise in our own dismay
The way we think is often a curse

So let go of the past, ignore the future
For there is nothing in this world of yours
That would force anyone to live and endure
Another's thinking that not even he, ignores

Search for the thought that will make you free
A single word a fool says without thinking
Its meaning will burn in you an epiphany
That none will ever dream of asking

It all started with a single thought
We can never hope to comprehend
Even when the lives we fought
Finally stop with our own end

Think free, there is nothing left
No is there anything right
As you acknowledge the theft
Of your own pure insight

Uncertainty

Give me one word that will set you free
And I'll say, it will have to be uncertainty
Its meaning reaches beyond the beauty
Of an unknown future we'd love to see

Of circular logic its strength remains
That few are so aware to explain
It's in pleasure and certain pain
We search for what we cannot gain

As you rewrite your past History
Pledge to remain true to the story
Dead in the heart you hold firmly
Full of lies no one can ever query

There is meaning in not knowing
What lies ahead of our being
And when it comes for the taking
Give us the strength to stop begging

Uncertainty is without a doubt
The sum of what we are about
And if you try to do without
You'll never get out

Searching For a Cause

Unless you know who you are
You'll spend a life searching
Within the realm of the bizarre
What could be your meaning

As the child opens his eyes
To be loved, his only path
Even if you would baptise
Of a God full of wrath

As time takes its due
Our convictions fail
We suddenly argue
What we should hail

So if you know not
What you stand for
A seeker you ought
To become, to live for

And know for sure
The cause you seek
Is of a love so pure
You can never be weak


A Book Once Told Me

A book once told me to trust in my salvation
While another, with the same intention
To rely on another, one I'd never meet
Even if I stood endlessly at his feet

A book once told me to read more than ever
Even though knowledge is never better
Than we you ignore all that you've learned
To love without thinking it can be earned

A book once told me to follow its way
While keeping my thoughts at bay
To ensure an eternal bliss
In all the things that I'd miss

A book once told me to listen to myself
I put it straight back on its bookshelf
Who would want to listen to his voice
When the truth offers more than one choice

A book once told me all I needed to know
About our past, our future, even though
That book was still being written
By all those who in life were smitten

Left Wanting

I want my family
My daughter always
My wife forever
My father at all times
My mother incessantly

I want the noise
That no one else hear
I want the tree
That no one else sees

In all the days I have
I want to pray
I want to do
I want to sit
I want to be

I want to know
The ancient words
The books of life
The mind of others
The will of the wind

I want all there is
Inside of me
Outside of me
Yet, the world is wise
I'm left wanting



A Love That Can Never Exist

Of all the people you know
Do you love them truly?
Really so, in joy and sorrow
How much of you can they see?

Love is but a loose word
To define all matters of sin
An ancient hall of records
Written by those who win

Yet poet and singer praised it
Lost in its hypnotic stare
No one will ever admit
Loosing their soul to be aware

And in the depth of time
Resides the truth about love
A sublime word, truly a crime
Shinning from below, from above

So there is one love so forbidden
None can truly say it exists
To know it is your burden
Are you able to resist?

The Altruist

Altruism is a matter of selfishness
For who else would help another
Should you be truly selfless
You'd let them be their own author

Yet the world is made of good souls
Who work on their lives effacing
That each of us can be taught its role
To the benefit of the one following

We must cherish the unselfish
Glorify in this world his place
Without turning him into a fetish
Often falling short of true grace

As your life enroll others in a journey
Remember those you've left behind
Among them could be God on a donkey
So don't be proud, don’t be blind

Who knows, when you reach the crossroad
Meeting the one who holds a destiny
You could decide to live by his code
Or take the right road out of many

Lesser Wisdom

Of the Ancient and modern wisdom
Which is greater, which is lesser?
Who's to say what one will fathom
When life comes in its own hour

Of the truth you claim so readily
Without ever thinking of the other
Can you trust what you hear, or see
Unaware of what comes after

Of the life you build on your spirit
Would you claim to be alone or original
Believing to simply be God's favourite
Who can you trust when you're in denial

Of the family you lead into oblivion
Crushing a child's right to his story
Have you forgotten your own vision
The same one that would set you free

There has never been a lesser wisdom
For each truth past, present or future
Can lead you to your blend of freedom
As long as you recall you true nature

Word of light

There is light in this word

It's the word that you say
When nothing goes their way
A simple gesture remembered
By all whose days are numbered

It's the verb that you choose
To comfort another's bruise
When he sees nothing worthy
In his soul, life and destiny

It's the noun that you forget
As you forgive a friend's debt
Knowing full well that tomorrow
You could be the one in sorrow

It's the simple sound you scream
To encourage your child's team
As her life can only evolve
With each fault you absolve

There is light in this word
When everything seems absurd
So you use it as you please
Even when your mood varies


The Right

You have the right to live
As I have
You have the right to give
As I have
You have the right to forgive
As I have

You have the right to pray
As I have
You have the right to say
As I have
You have the right to stay
As I have

You have the right to raise
As I have
You have the right to amaze
As I have
You have the right to Sundays
As I have

You have the right to cry
As I have
You have the right to sigh
As I have
You have the right to die
As I have

We all have the right
To everything

Knowledge Weakens

The certainty of fools
Is found in many tools
In religion and philosophy
In politics and especially TV

Knowledge weakens the character
Of those who keep their vision blur
Enamoured in one book, one God
Believing that questioning is odd

In this truth lies a paradox
At your door, dogma knocks
You can answer if you dare
Lose the chance to be aware

No one question the priest
Who claims to chase the beast
Banning the learning of ancient wisdom
For the benefit of an eternal kingdom

Knowledge weakens all who stop
To ignore God in every teardrop
Preferring to live in the uncertainty
Of a question that will make them see



So Little to Cry For

So little to cry for
So much to rejoice for
In everything I adore
There's nothing I abhor

A life of a little joy
There's none I annoy
As a day's but a toy
To every schoolboy

Rejoicing in each second
That we'd have reasoned
To live for a thousand
Never to be saddened

So why cry for a lost thought
When nothing can be bought
Being more than what we're taught
Nothing can be anyone's fault

The only cry worth our time
Is the song with a bad rhyme
The agony of a lack of sublime
In a life that's destined to shine


For You

I will give you all the knowledge of old
You shall know the secrets of the earth
As your life continues to unfold
You'll learn the reason of your birth

You were born to be who you are
Unattached to unproven ideas
Destined for the forgotten star
Far beyond any existing dogmas

As each moment is but an experience
Turning your mind into a free spirit
You'll know deep in your essence
Without a purpose, you have no merit

Forge your soul into the iron of truth
Temper its blade with a millions roses
Learn to be old, never forget your youth
And you will know the wisdom of the ages

I will show you that with every step
You will make a choice for the better
Unaware that all the tears you've wept
Were the diamonds of your next summer

Yet I can only tell you what I know
Everything that matters to you however
Will be inherited from what you sow
For you are the ultimate ever after


Hating Life

None are born hating their lives
It's a skill we learn, we're taught
And every time we feel life's vibes
We choose a feeling or a thought

Would you hate life if you knew
That you exist for a deeper reason
Than your own point of view
Than your own shallow passion

As a tidal wave washes the sand
Our emotions dictate what we feel
We can hate and love the land
While blaming our watery will

So hate as much as you can
But follow quickly with love
As the cycle again will ran
You can only but look above

As reality of the night sets in
One wonders why we're here
Were we meant to simply win
Or to hide beyond one fear



Define Hell

Define hell for me
You who knows better
Same for paradise, tell me
You who's so clever

Hell might be in your future
As you waste your talents
Leading to a life bitter
As you blame your parents

It could be in your past
Without you being aware
And as time runs fast
There's nothing you'd dare

Yet

Hell can be here today
If it's what you desire
It could go its own way
If your dreams were higher


Insignificant Moment

It was an insignificant moment
In which time didn't make a dent
It was a time that none foresaw
The day we all died in awe

It started with a bang, who knew
For no one really had a clue
A spark could create so much
A simple act of God's touch

Since then nothing grand
A few things planned
And in the greater scheme
Nothing worthy it seems

Yet one creation stood apart
Claiming to be really smart
Establishing a dominion of fools
With order and a thousand rules

It was an insignificant moment
The day we became absent
Creation kept on going towards
Itself, as its own reward



You Shall Know More

You shall know more than I ever will
And even if time stood eternally still
I will not know what you'll learn
I'm not you, that, I haven't earned

For in this life you crave for wisdom
While in another you simply starved
As they pass to what you'll become
Your thread is finally carved

Until then you'll evolve both ways
As you seek each worthy experience
That will take you to another phase
Whose fate depends on your balance

Rejoice in a simple fact you must heed
That neither good nor evil truly exist
It doesn't matter what you concede
As long you keep, as long as you persist

You shall know more that you ever will
For each elementary wisdom you distill
Know that we're the same sand in time
We can't help but be sublime


Dream Camp

Welcome to dream camp
Where reality and truth
Live side by side
Countless before you
Masters and slaves alike
Have taken that path
Fourty days in the wild
With no other choice
But to dream or survive
With nothing to sustain
Neither mind, nor soul
As your only companion
Will you take being alone
Knowing that only you
Has the key to your dream
Is the master of your destiny
For the dream is truer
Than the thought that escapes
A mind unprepared
To the reality of itself
Behold the one who knows not
For he might hold the secret
As for the one who knows too much
Let him realise his foolishness
So dream and go forth
Extend your mind's reach
Into the reality of your visions
Knowing that one day soon
Neither truth nor falsehood
Will matter


The Rose and the Cherry

The Rose, in all glories
Declared herself Queen
The princess of the Cherries
Was stunned by what she'd seen

The Rose without hesitation
Stated the end of the bee reign
For without pollination
She'd stay young and vain

A thought without fault
For no one could argue
That life would halt
At the morning dew

The Rose in her elated state
Forgot the meaning of life
Unaware that all would hate
Living blissfully without strife

The princess finally spoke
To all of nature who'd listen
A speech that passion awoke
Words not heard that often

Nothing can be controlled
All will live as they see fit
The bees will return to the fold
Nature will take back her spirit


What's Another Year?

What's another year?
A collection of days
Some full of anger
While others amaze

Did each matter?
To you and all
Full of wonder
None truly small

Did you cry?
For an injustice
As none knows why
There is no peace

Did you rejoice?
To a life reborn
To another's voice
Even as it mourns

Did you evolve?
In soul and mind
Did you involve?
Left none behind?

So here is another year
Full of life, of challenges
Yet nothing can prepare
One who takes chances

As I Say

As I say, I love you
What do I mean?
As if I really knew
What can't be seen

As I say, I understand
Do I truly believe so?
Am I just lending a hand?
To a mistaken ego

As I say, see you again
Is that a promise?
Or words so vain
As they fall in the abyss

As I say, trust me
Would you do so
If you were angry?
Preferring to say no

As I say, I'll wait
Is that a weakness
Or simply my fate
To step into darkness

As I say, take my hand
Are you aware?
That until the end
I truly care


Let Me Be

Let me be
Do not close the door
Through which I can enter
Do not open the door
Through which I cannot

Let me be a son of God
In the glory of days past
Without fear of the future
Without pain that last

Let me be a song of light
Carrying my true self
To the end of reality
To the beginning of life

Let me be a sinless soul
Blessed in restful bliss
Without awareness
Without knowledge

Let me be a human saint
Full of errors even when right
Proud and ashamed of any thought
Tested longer that I was alive

Let me be
Do not listen to what I say
Forget the laughs we shared
Remember in you dark hour
That you too, will ever be

Unlikely Hero

We stand each day alone
Facing another minute
Walking into the unknown
Without any merit

We talk our way out
Of dire responsibilities
Thinking without a doubt
We aim to please

Yet each time we accept
To help another in trouble
We learn a life precept
We are simply all equal

In that illuminated second
We touch the hand of God
As we clean another's wound
We experience a life broad

We stand each and every day
The unlikely hero of an old tale
As everyone before us fell prey
To life's challenge and prevailed

An Hour

Dream the last hour
Before I knew you
When I was braver
With nothing to do

It didn't take long
For life to turn
A simple song
An hour to burn

Now I have to mature
Take life seriously
Eve if you're sure
It's not my destiny

Life is a succession
Of moments we dream
Thinking without opinion
We understand time's stream

Whether I praise or curse
That hour before you
I don't know what's worse
The past the future outgrew...

Evil out of Good

Can evil come out of good
As the other is often true
Loosing grip as one should
Truth is but a point of view

Are they really different
When both truly matter
Both we always want
As we leap in the fire

With a single belief
Exaggerating their power
Sensing the depth of grief
We ignore what's better

For both is a choice
Made at a crossroad
Where both rejoice
Whichever way we bowed

Evil comes of out of good
And in the next day of glory
The reverse will be as it should
Regardless of what will be

Why

Why did I do that
Why being so stupid
Why being a brat
And regret what I did?

Why did I answer
Why did you ask
Why are you better
Than me at the task?

Why did I praise
Why did you worship
Why did I raise
Away from friendship?

Why did you cry
Why did I feel
Why would you die
Knowing it's unreal?

Why did I stay
Why did you choose
Why did we pray
Unafraid to loose?


Wasting Time

As the hour disappears
I wonder what happened
Mixing hopes and fears
Of a future darkened

Each hour that I loose
By choice or mistake
Shows that I abuse
My power to awake

Yet I can never stop
Wasting my life away
As the pleasure to flop
Takes my destiny away

It is so painfully easy
To waste the time given
Killing the mystery
Of a life unproven

So I waste the present
To the before, to the after
None so brilliant
As the one who gets better

Not lost

There is a deeper knowledge
That all thought was lost
It survived in the language
In all impure thought tossed

It never was, it can never be
Lost to anyone who seeks
The ability to truly see
And listen to whoever speaks

It circulates in our behaviour
It's the essence of heroism
We sometimes call it culture
It is what we want to become

The ancient lived by it
While we took a wrong turn
And till the truth we admit
We can only hope to learn

That knowledge was never lost
We only forgot its meaning
We'll rediscover it at a cost
Are you ready for the awakening?


Not For You

The bird does not sing for others
It does not strive for you
The bird sings for his pleasure
As no one knows but the few

The sun does not rise for you
In itself it burns for eternity
Giving life a chance to renew
Unaware of whether you agree

Your friend does not live in you
Even if both destinies are tied
His own life he has to rescue
From your incessant tide

Our own destiny is not for us
As we selfishly, without a clue,
Believe that all should be joyous
To know us as we know ourselves too

Nothing in this life is really for you
And here lies the beauty of existing
We must strive without further ado
To help others in themselves believing


Imagination

Can you keep a thought unchanged?
While life passes by without a thought
As you stay behind with the deranged
Those who in their opinions got caught

Imagination rules the heart
Leads the soul, ignores the mind
Taking us to the real start
Where our dreams turn us blind

Imagine all there is to see
If you can, then be the God
That you were meant to be
Before you knew you were flawed

Imagine who you truly are
Each time you are destroyed
By a word, a voice from afar
Who knows not you're annoyed

Imagine what you could do
If you let life shine out
You'll always have a clue
As to what you are about

Give Me a Pen

Give me a pen, I shall change the world
With words unseen, even heard before
Speaking of hate, love, a flower, a bird
You will be challenged, internally at war

A careless, a careful word, will kill
Hurt like you'd never been before
Destroyed against your simple will
Pain will not be felt anymore

Another word will elevate your reality
Show without pretense how hard it is to be
Bringing your soul beyond your own identity
Where God meets us among the absurdity

So with a pen I'll make and break your day
Expend your horizons with such intensity
That no one will truly question my way
For none will need to move for all eternity

So give me that pen I so deeply require
Let me express the feelings of being
Never to more hope can one aspire
Leave me alone, leave me ascending



I Don't Need Anything

I Don't Need Anything
I probably never will
I want it all without asking
That, I can never fulfill

I might need air, maybe water
To simply be alive, everyday
I don't need to know the hour
That passes along my way

I know deep in my heart
That I long for love
Each time we're apart
I need it too from above

There might be other things
That I need for sure
In all of our beginnings
We use them to endure

But I don't need anything
Beyond what I have already
Why do we need everything
When we can't share passionately


Opinion

Give me your thoughts
I'll prove you wrong
Even as an afterthought
Truth always comes along

For all we think is an opinion
Forged from our many lives
Often beyond our own reason
Said even before it arrives

We all now what is real
Nothing we say is mistaken
As each word a soul fulfills
Something deep is awaken

As a member of a kind most noble
I give my views without absolute
If I was truly knowledgeable
I would refrain to so pollute

So let's give our opinions freely
While keeping them to ourselves
Life should be lived absentmindedly
Ignoring all full of themselves

You Should

You should eat your vegetables
You should look for the silver lining
You should think thoroughly before talking
You should pass the bread
You should give back
You should sleep
You should listen
You should do what you said
You should wake-up early, no matter what
You should pray
You should learn constantly
You should call your friends
You should marry for love
You should not hurt people
You should defend others
You should answer
You should clean-up your mess
You should write more than others
You should pay attention
You should give respect
You should talk when necessary
You should be silent more often
You should trust
You should think
You should be


Incantation

King of all, let me be
Queen of all, let me see
I want to love absurdly
And think relatively

I wish all to be free
Where none would agree
As to the painful finality
Of a life spent in ambiguity

I need to be angry
Without any animosity
Towards you, towards me
Simply feeling arbitrarily

I wait by the clock to be happy
Aware that I'd need to be witty
If I wanted to live effortlessly
Without any useful activity

I hope to one day learn beauty
As it resides in each heart freely
To let it come out without blasphemy
My words be told unknowingly


When Asking

When asking for a gift
Beware it might be granted

When asking for help
Be ready to return it

When asking to know the future
Pray you'll be able to change it

When asking to be forgiven
Trust that it has already happened

When asking to know it all
Be aware it already is so

When asking someone to wait
Remember it's never easy

When asking to be wealthy
Define your role in life

When asking to know God
Forget all that you've been

When asking to destroy me
Never forget where you will be

When asking to glorify me
Never forget where you will be

So when you ask to simply be
Simply be


The Universe

The universe conspires to help you
If you let it behave the way it needs
For every time you control or argue
It negates the smallest of your seeds

Pay attention to the cosmic law
It is written in the stars at night
Many have been able to foresaw
What for them would be right

It's a pretty big place out there
What happens to your questions
Do you wait, even if unaware
If your request will lead to action

Here is the secret to the universe
Ask what you need and trust
That it works, in manners diverse
To answer the idiot, the cleverest

And here lies the main issue
Do you know what to ask for?
Are you precise in your views?
Or speak only in metaphors

So begin to know yourself
A step everyone should take
Then ask the universe itself
Make sure you're awake



Tired

Tired to be someone I'm not
Tired to be who I am at all
Tired to do things I cannot
Tired of life, need overall

Tired to listen to idiots
Tired to learn from experts
Tired to hear even one bigot
Tired to talk with a convert

Tired to impress anyone
Tired to suck-up to others
Tired to search for the one
Tired to answer an accuser

Tired to search for any cure
Tired to forgive my mistakes
Tired to have to endure
Tired to have what it takes

Tired to write useless words
Tired to think beyond the box
Tired to reach upwards
Tired to wear my sox


Silent Knowledge

Do you know something
Without of it thinking
Aware of another
Without even blinking

Here lies true wisdom
Knowing without words
In this, is real freedom
Moving, with you, onwards

Knowing in pure silence
The thoughts of God
Fighting with violence
An ego who knows it's odd

As you learn, you ignore
A truth once common
For knowledge to soar
Forget books and devotion

Silent knowledge is in you
It was then as it is now
The only truth of value
Everything else I'd disavow

Spiritually

Life is a spiritual adventure
Deeply rooted in our nature
We develop our own future
Beyond any single scripture

In the spirit of things
We strive for blessings
Ignoring so many callings
As we die in all evenings

Each soul is a powerful spirit
Responsible for its own wit
Destined to walk in opposite
Simply searching its limit

Do you believe in such belief?
Nothing in life can bring you grief
For a lifetime is all so brief
A second passing like a thief

Spiritually speaking, I now know
That all is the same as below
For none even God can bestow
For what I am is what I sow


When The Songs

When songs meant something
Each would to tell us a story
Of a life spent adoring
Of a second spent sadly

They would awake our spirits
Make us sore beyond mediocrity
And for a second without limits
We'd live without any guarantee

In each we would see deep within
Blanding all our aches, all our dreams
To a note, a word, that could only begin
Never ending, never leaving, or so it seems

Each moment of our lives marked forever
With a tune that would stay buried inside
Giving each memory past its own flavour
A souvenir of a time that'll never subside

Where are those songs I long to hear
Those words and notes that made me cry
Taking care of every single little fear
They live to help others, they'll never die


In the Forest

Oh forest! Oh ferns!
Silence at every turn
A symphony of sound
All senses unbound

Towering everyone
Enters the swan
Master of the lake
Symbol of heartbreak

Walking in silence
Just as in a dance
Fearing every tree
Nothing I can see

I continue bravely
Fighting actively
Thoughts of pain
Death in the rain

Down the pathway
Life will betray
My life, my love
Curse all above

Yet the forest
Gives me the rest
I need to survive
Forcing me to be alive

Seven Sins

Of the seven sins
Which a bell rings
Have you thought
Which you sought

Luxuria for all there is
In itself, is but a tease
Bringing a thief, a noble
To lust like an angel

Gula is truly endless
Unable to assess
The value of bread
Even for the well read

Avaritia is sad seed
That simply is greed
Unable to really see
The value of liberty

Acedia brings no value
To anything with a debut
For nothing can start
Unless in it you take part

Ira brings all the danger
Of life spent in anger
Many bear the scars
Of the war God, Mars

Invidia is just so sweet
Envying its own wit
Unaware it is flawed
Inside its own abode

Superbia turns us fools
Too proud of the rules
We set for all others
As we lead the accusers

Know your sins
As your life spins
Out of control
Of its own role

With Ease

With ease, I tease
Each who agrees
With what I say
To their dismay

With ease, I create
My own fate
As I decide
What's inside

With ease, I cease
To love and live
As it is my turn
To die and burn

With ease, I forget
What I came here to get
Lost in my own lust
With nothing to adjust

With ease, I write
Of love and right
Nobly presiding
What all are avoiding

With ease, I pray
That we all stay
For a little longer
In the arms of a lover


Backward

I shall foresee the past and read about my future
In a world going backward from death to birth
I rule supreme, blameless, having to endure
That I'm going backward for all I'm worth

I would come unto this earth aware
Of my thoughts, action and place
I'll have everything I need to wear
And a sense of my own grace

Instead I'm born naked without a thought
Full of pain, full of joy, with no control
Forced to learn what is taught
Even if it's not in my soul

In this world backward life would make sense
We'd be in it, opinionated from the first day
Knowing that with each day from then hence
We'd forget a little till we loose our way

Is it a painful truth that to evolve
You sometimes need to reverse
Unwillingly or of your own resolve
For fear of becoming worse


Calling the Faithful

As the bells rang, their echo floating on the hills
I stop my toil, bowed and started to pray
But pray to whom? For what? To kill the ills?
Had I lost my faith by praying away?

Blessed are those who faith is strong
As for the rest of us, we cling to hope
Believing that the future can't be wrong
For it is the only way left to cope

I hear them now, thinking how foolish
If I only knew their God, I'd be saved
Safe in that belief, with no anguish
As the Saints of past, all well behaved

Here lies the irony of such a lie
For their God is yours, is mine
An omnipotent God can never deny
A belief that is truly out of line

So in the hills, the bells will ring forever
Stopping everyone in their evening
For even the empty promise of a saviour
Has to be better than slowly dying


Centre of Attention

Craving the limelight is both a gift, a curse
As those leaving in the shadows despise
The joker's pleasure, rather perverse
To bring all back to him, even the wise

Yet in that love, ourselves we glorify
Wishing for but a little limelight
Yet unwilling to comprise even slightly
Our polite laziness and lack of fight

Being the centre of another's attention
On your sense of self will put a toll
As you can lose, with all that tension
Your real identity, your only true role

Deep inside we all feel the need
To be loved, wanted, simply noticed
In that sense, our ego truly leads
In that sense, we're all artists

So pay attention to the centre
It's where the Gods play us
Giving us safety, even danger
Inviting us to be jealous


Desire

What do you need that truly matter?
For which God does your heart beat?
When nothing is real at this hour
Even the desire of another's deceit

Yet our soul craves for more
Our mind pleads for pleasure
While deep inside we swore
Not to fall without an answer

It consumes all that we are
Like a fire with no flame
Taking us away, leading us afar
From those we love and blame

Yet we must not live without it
It's the spark of life that creates
A need to never quit, never admit
Not to be less than what life dictates

Cherish your desire to be more
Learn from those who stray
Nurture your passions to ignore
Stand firm and live life's ballet


Destination

Do you know where you're going?
Or simply live day-by-day, aimless
Is their purpose in your thinking?
Or each day leads to distress

Choose a point in your future
Give it a name, a skill, a task
There is nothing more pure
Than to do what no one asks

That fateful first step you'll take
Is internal, a figment of the mind
Of others dreams, you'll forsake
That dependency of the blind

Once on your way, never forget
To arrive, you must keep going
On your way, you might get help
But only you will be arriving

It doesn't matter where you go
As long as it's your choice
No one else but your ego
Will know your real voice


Gratitude

What are you grateful for?
As you wake-up alone
Is there one you adore?
Is it hate you condone?

Of all the skills in our lives
Gratitude is the hardest
To be thankful revives
All sins, even the crudest

You'd have to be a fool
Without a conscience
To be truly grateful
With all that defiance

And truly fools we are
For we thank our God
To have come so far
Feeling like a fraud

Be grateful for who you are
For you are truly unique
Forget the internal war
Simply know what you seek


Language of the Birds

Once spoken for all to hear
Now lost to all even the few
Its meaning yet all so clear
Buried in words anew

The language of the garden
Used by the first keepers
Many might call it Eden
Now shadows of whispers

Commanding in every word
A sound all life knew
Moving forever forward
Without having to renew

Spoken by all in unison
It was friendship at its best
All equals without seasons
Never needing to even rest

It dissapeared in a question
Unspoken in the fruiftul tree
A friendly foe with a reason
To give us a chance to see

Not knowing what was known then
As the words even escape me
They were given as well as ten
Forgetting they were deadly

No Books to Buy

No books we have to buy
What we need to know
Is already inside our eye
Far beyond our ego

Yet books give us more
If you're ready to change
To be twisted to the core
Where nothing is strange

With limited time at hand
What is worth reading?
Taking a story till the end
Is no longer gratifying

We seek knowledge in all
Pictures, sounds, or touch
Often having to face a wall
Guarding nothing much

We already know it all
Books just remind us
That before the fall
We use to be joyous

Nostalgia

Longing for someone past, for a story
Is a gift of God, even a sinful pleasure
Reminiscing in the charms of eternity
We long for a past better than our future

With little to rely on but our effacing memory
We remember a world without extremes
Where either rain or pain, in all their glory
Transformed a second into a novel theme

We glorify moments than meant nothing
Purge others than changed our lives
We re-write our past before dying
Leaving a world with tainted archives

Oh, we nostalgic lot, slaves of our memories
Will we ever move beyond their power?
Thank God we forget so many histories
Yet not able to lose what makes us wiser

It is the curse of time we all live by
We move from life to life, endlessly
Able to learn with each goodbye
That it is up to us to design our story


Of the Elements

Of the four elements
Which would you be
Which holds the sacrament
That will make you free

The earth stands firm
Below our feet and soul
Being the final urn
It knows its role

Water is as fluid as ever
Full of life and promises
For poorer, for richer
The bride of all ages

In passion burns the fire
The son of humanity
In secret we admire
Its ability to live simply

The last sustains us without air
Omnipotent, even omniscient
In the wind we learn what is there
As we can only be when absent



Spiritual Quest

What do you seek that others have not?
When did you know there was more to life?
Was it death that showed you what you've got?
Was it faith that lead you away from strife?

We all search for a reasonable answer
Why am I here? What's my purpose?
As we balance between hope and anger
We question all in search of a compass

Yet, when did you last listen to your spirit?
Heard the voice that might know it all
Or is that voice the real culprit?
The one that made you fall

Did you read the books of old?
Those that speak of true knowledge
A power we stopped being told
As we fear our own courage

And in this quest, here lies the irony
We will all seek for more than there is
No matter what was our destiny
We'll question the life that flees


The Ladder of Light

In the beginning was data
It started as a dot, a spark
Nothing more than an Alpha
To take us out of the dark

Developing into information
It took life and made it is own
Turning all that was common
Into what would soon be sown

Knowledge became the force
For good, yet often blessed as evil
Showing the path to the source
We're no angels after all

As to the few who stayed the path
Enlightenment came with no surprise
And for you, check your heart, do the math
Can you, in this life, arise?

For to climb the ladder of light
Several lives are necessary
From mistakes, we become bright
Let's face it, it's our destiny


The Sound of Light

Did you hear the star cry in the morning sun?
A pain so bright, few noticed the tears
For when a star's life has its course finally run
Nothing will ever be as it appears

So listen to the sound of light
Heed its voice, not its beauty
For to see is forever finite
While to hear, is actually empty

Blessed the many who cannot fathom
That light in its unwavering glory
Turns all but the spring blossom
Into a note on a scale of three

If we can hear with our eyes
We can see the good, the evil
That beauty makes when it talks
About a future that nothing can rival

And if you can see with your ears
Then you'd have yourself outgrown
Equal and first among your peers
Light will finally make a sound of its own



Valentine

Do you remember why you love her?
Do you remember why you love him?
This question's meant to deter
People who use love on a whim

In a world where all is commercial
Stand a concept that keeps us sane
Even though it gets us into trouble
We come for more, rejecting the pain

Is love the reason of a single day?
Especially when they are no reason
Shouldn't it be the only true way?
No way to live, but with such passion

So choose your valentine carefully
Ignore the pressure of the gift
May I say, never forget how easy
It is to destroy, to create a rift

On this day nothing really matter
Just a feeling carrying eternity
In a thought, a word, an hour
A responsibility, a destiny

Book of Unknowing

We could write books
With what we don't know
For wherever one looks
There's only wasted info

In an age of too much
What should one learn
As every book we touch
Seems so hard to earn

In all the world libraries
Lies words that save
Hidden in many stories
Each leading to your grave

To unlearn is the greatest gift
To let go of useless ideas
Taken by a thought so swift
You'll see the end of an era

In the book of unknowing
That you can never read
Find your life disappearing
And finally know. You're dead


The Wind

Without pretext or shame
The wind carries our faults
Even our hopes without aim
In an ever twisting waltz

Silently passing through our minds
With all the might of a tornado
Ravaging our soul as it unwinds
A thought that happened long ago

The wind is but a friend, a foe
A strength we know we lack
Yet unable to let it all go
We cling to a life out of whack

Drop everything, climb a mountain
Stand on the edge of a precipice
Look down to what you can't attain
And let the wind bring you peace

The wind is but air that moves
An action beyond its own destiny
Bringing a thought that proves
You need to live with a dose of folly

Loosing Touch With Music

During three long spiritual years
While loosing touch with music
Following another's orders
My life became but a mimic

Little did I know that the word
In all its glory, a world creator
Could become so awkward
Could negate the gesture

And the prophets of the new age
Those merging words and sounds
I knew nothing of their rage
Oblivious to what they'd found

How could I miss such a secret
How could I live without a rhythm
Lost forever, with no regrets
For I knew life wasn't random

One day came the question
Do you know the power of a song?
I realised that I had no option
But to open to what I sung all along


Ghosts

Where are the ghosts of my past
They who haunted my youth
Who showed me life can't last
Whom I thought knew the truth

They entered my story every year
Once full of joy, sorrow and dreams
Now but to be missed forever
No longer able to take me to extremes

I knew their faces well, loved the smiles
They taught me to walk, to work, to cry
They defined my world, my lifestyle
Each a philosopher who had to die

For decades their influence grew
Living my life as if it was my own
Every time I thought I saw anew
They reminded me I was alone

Where are they now those past faces
They evaporated as I started to realise
I was who I was not by their wishes
But by simply severing the ties


Echoes of the Sun

My shadow plays tricks on my soul
Reflecting my eternal darker side
Never assuming but another role
Than the one of a misguided pride

In the dark I often forget her role
Unaware that what you can't see
Is yet visible to your inner soul
A reflection of the truer me

In the man created temporary light
She splits into its own lonely shadows
A poor copy of the original insight
Piercing the night that life foregoes

As awake under the morning sun
I turn and face the daily reality
That as I long as my light's uneven
I'll face the shadow of my destiny

Yet fear not the echoes of the sun
For they will open your undying eyes
To the meaning of your shadows' burden
That you are one till your own demise


Death

There is nothing after death you say
We are destined to live again you say
It doesn't matter which way I take
For I'll only know once I'm awake

Since the beginning of the first thought
We tried to understand a death we fought
Creating tombs and rituals to the Gods
It is death we should praise, as us, it lauds

There is an irony in seeing another pass on
We finally understand what went wrong
In our lives, and the lives of those we love
Yet unable of ourselves to rise above

And with each end we face in our lives
We must learn what it takes to revive
The eternal soul that chose to learn
That few of knowledge truly yearn

Between what you know and what is
As you believe you do as you please
Realise that no amount of wisdom
Opens the door to the kingdom

Be Childish

Be childish, immature as you please
Work on it till it comes with ease
For we all are unawares genies
Lost in a field of flowery lilies

As I think more and more as a child
Finally aware of the beauty of the wild
Yet what maturity as insanely defiled
Could one day be forever exiled

And if today you don't start to fight
For what we all know is truly right
And if we forget that little insight
We will better of to fall into the night

For I'm afraid, you the thinkers of the day
That you're cleverness stands in the way
Of a child who has learned to pray
And destined himself to never delay

So be childish and stand accused
By those before who have abused
A nature we should have left unused
As opposed to in a state where it’s confused

Bruises

Would life be worth living
If not for the bruises we get
Each hit truly bringing
A memory, a lesson, a regret

Without a thousand pains
None can truly feel alive
For all the joys we feign
In hurt we always thrive

A scar is like a word
Written in your blood
By another's sword
As friends applaud

Here lies a truth real
That for each bruise
A friend's will feel
You've paid your dues

Seek a life of your own
Never refrain to try it all
Forget those who disown
A way to train your soul

Her Voice

Her voice is in the background
A sound of life, small and subtle
And every-time she's around
I feel her love pure, gentle

In a minute, she'll be next to me
Claiming complete attention
There is nothing else, you see
When she shows her devotion

She sings as she's learning
Each word has its own music
For nothing is ever boring
As by itself, everything is magic

She moves in words understood
Claiming the story as her own
Making it up better than it could
As she's now sitting on the throne

Her voice is a life continued
An extension of her ancestors
Displaying each of their moods
In the tones she uses as altars


One More Minute

One more minute
That's all it takes
To be a destitute
Or one who awakes

Yet that eternal time
Feels like forever
As it can be sublime
To be missed after

It's the simple difference
Between the right word
And another left to chance
One divine, the other, absurd

It can never be faked
As it comes from within
It's never half-baked
As it leads to win

One more minute
That's all it takes
To bear the fruits
Of your mistakes


Dare I Say

Dare I say what I think?
Dare I listen to you?
Dare I even blink?
As you do what you do

The freedom of speech
Bastion of those who preach
Seems so out of reach
When dictators want to teach

So to those before us
Who fought to let us talk
I thank you for your lives
Given for our words

When my mind has an itch
To speak itself, even bitch
Let me forget that to be rich
One often has to switch

So today I dare say
What's in my mind
We'll always find a way
To give sight to mankind


Silence

Few experiences are harder to take
Than a silence, deep and pronounced
It is in such state that one becomes awake
Without reality ever being announced

Yet we fear that would help us grow
Preferring to be filled with empty noise
Knowing perfectly that what we sow
Will end-up as but mere toys

Sitting in silence is often a torture
We impose on the young, thinking
It seems important for their future
Not to disrupt another's schooling

Yet it is that same boost of creativity
That one day will be required of them
To ensure they fulfill their destiny
That same creativity silence will inflame

So the logic of today cannot but fail us
Silence is needed for the truth to prevail
Remember the harmony of an opus
It's in the silences that it tells the tale


Talking

What have you got to say
That has not been said before
Do you really think your way
Is the only one to explore

I have to say, we talk too much
We let words go without thinking
Yet each is a cure that can touch
Or a disease that needs feeding

We talk, it goes without saying
For a reason. At least, it seems
Of all the sentences we're using
How many respond to a dream

We only say one word at the time
But we mean often so much more
With double-meaning, or a rhyme
We give them the substance of a whore

As talking is cheaper than a thought
We forget the real price of silence
In evil words we often get caught
As in our heads, angelic sayings dance

Judge Me

Judging is a divine gift
That none can possess
For as our finite lives shift
We are subject to excess

There is comfort in judging
For we ignore our flaws
When we focus on seeing
How others break the laws

Yet we throw the stone
To another's mistake
For they should own
In what they partake

We judge without mercy
A fault we'd never do
Yet we are not free
Of those we get into

Judge me if you have to
For you truly know not
And as I judge you too
I know less than I thought


Friendship

It's in turbulent times that friendship are born
And in quiet ones that they are truly tested
It comes as no surprise that no one is forewarn
As we realise that none of them lasted

It takes a second to trust someone for life
And an eternity to kill that passion
As reality cuts our emotions like a knife
We forego all qualities of reason

We need friends just like we need air
Searching constantly for another soul
And often we're caught unaware
As whoever we meet can play that role

Choosing the friends with whom we agree
Unaware that no one actually decides
What in others we can actually see
In us they see the same as it collides

So it is time to reveal another secret
No friend exist in the people you meet
Until you stand and remain quiet
Ready to listen to their heartbeat


Initiate

As an initiate of the order of the dumb and the wise
I say to you, without fear and certainly not prejudice
Of all the ideas I've learned from others, one defies
What I know inside, made truly alive through practice

It started all well, through a cry and a gentle slap
I emerged fully formed, yet incapable of seeing
That all that I knew was now philosophical crap
And the truth buried in the inner recess of my being

When you think that it takes a lifetime to remember
Everything that you should already know by heart
For the knowledge we seek was of the same author
That gave us the life we enjoy ripping apart

I know not the reason why I have to relearn all wisdom
From life to life, from crushing thought to enlightened idea
It is puzzling to never know what we can truly become
Unless we let ourselves die into the caprice of another era

So until then, I'll read everything, I'll meditate all day
I'll explore the inner corners of the world I was given
I'll decide which road to take, often going the wrong way
And I'll pray to access the truth that was sadly hidden

Nature's Silence

Before we silenced nature
It was full of a life of its own
But it took but one creature
To unbalance and disown

To those who don't speak
This kingdom is truly yours
For in the word we seek
We forgot we're all saviours

We search to tame a beast
That has sustained us till today
Thinking we are the artiste
That gave meaning to the clay

Nature still speaks to us
Who's listening to its cries?
Who is really conscious?
Of a future each denies

Nature's silence will be
The last thing we hear
Before we finally see
We are what we hear

Oh Snake, Oh Serpent

Oh Snake, Oh Serpent
Praise me as I praise you
Glorify me as I glorify you
Think me as I think you
Dream me as I dream you
Pray for me as I pray for you
Act on me as I act on you
Fool me as I fool you
Defend me as I defend you
Create me as I create you
Destroy me as I destroy you
Cry for me as I cry for you
Laugh for me as I laugh for you
Dance for me as I dance for you
Speak to me as I speak to you
Oh Snake, Oh Serpent
Hate me as I hate you
Love me as I love you

Normal

I need to feel normal to be exceptional
This is not out of the ordinary for me
For all my life has been a battle
Between good, evil, and a query

Of all the people you know
Do you call any of them normal?
Is it an insult, a praise, a flaw
Or is your friendship too casual?

What is normal anyway?
We all define it differently
Even a fool knows his way
Thinking we're all acting weirdly

Why does one wish to be one of the other?
Why is no one satisfied with his position?
Is progress the domain of the fool who alters
What everyone else believe to be within reason

So, everyone must live exceptionally
Or in normality, find their exception
Either way, stand clear of a reality
Forcing you to another's reason


Agreeing

It doesn't matter if you agree with me
For I am not you, nor will I ever be
My opinion reflect my history
To forever be my own reality

This is my world, reflected in my eyes
A view honed in truth and a thousand lies
Learnt in trials, errors, and a surprise
That I relearn every time someone dies

Why would we want to agree with each other
For diversity creates the most magical banter
Yet, it's true, it's the source of so much anger
That all know what to do to with the other

If we could only agree on one thing
Would it be the inevitability of dying
Or simply our craving need for living
No. It's our inability to agree on anything

I don't really care if we are destined to agree
As long as we work faithfully to be less angry
And if that takes for the two of us to agree
Then we might need to realise we are free

Now

This time is sacred
There's nothing like it
It should be praised
Never forgotten
For now is all we have
A second dispensed freely
Will never come back
Unless it is to haunt us
As we forgot to live in it
Swayed by tomorrow
It's beauty and promise
Makes us forget that today
Is but yesterday's tomorrow
We often long for a day gone by
While we can grasp this moment
Are we fools unable to think
Or thinkers without folly
For it seems that when you do
Life and time merge endlessly
Or feel like an eternity
Either way we're wasting time
Each time we seek our past
Or claim a future we long to see
Unable to again realise our gain
Every time we stop to love


Fallen for Love

Putting your heart out there
Fighting in the greatest battle
Yet no one is ever aware
Of the devil so subtle

Search and you will not find
Live, and it might happen
Ask, and simply stay blind
Be, and it will deepen

For this is the mystery of old
Never to be answered
Why weren't we told
Life would be altered

Knowing the joy and pain
Would seek this destiny
Search for a pleasure vain
Absent of every reality

Love is truly a fallacy
Yet who in his right mind
Would live without a story
Based on love all so blind

Life Takes Nothing

Life takes nothing
That you didn't give
And what you bring
Someone will forgive

Life takes nothing
Praise yourself
For surviving
Life itself

Life takes nothing
Pour all of your soul
For before dying
You'll need to console

Life takes nothing
Without permission
Stop blaming
All but your passion

Life takes nothing away
So give it all you can
Live day by day
Even have a plan

White Cat

On the ledge sat the white cat
Proud of his fur and passion
Born noble, some say fat
Of parents without reason

Watching the moon all day
Never thinking of others
It praises his own way
Unaware of all the actors

Between the earth and sky
Lost in a deep meditation
Surely, it can never die
If there are no questions

They should all praise him
For his coat, for his dedication
Ascetic, but not on a whim
Having gone beyond caution

As its pride met its ego
Life as we know it
Disappeared in an echo
As it could not admit

Ah, to be a white cat
Full of raw instincts
Never to know defeat
As we become extinct


Path

I hold wisdom about your path
Wouldn't you like to know
Without having to do the math
Gain the benefits of such info

But let's start at the beginning
That's where most path begin
Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you've been?

So if you don't know either of these
What makes me think I can help you
Do let me put your mind at ease
I don't always know what to do

Yet, if we met by chance or plan
Those few seconds will show
That we were meant to outran
Any of your pitiful status quo

So take a chance and let's meet
I'll give you my undivided opinion
And who knows, in a heartbeat
You might refine my vision


Born On A Good Day

We're all born on a good day
For with each life, joy appears
If no one would show the way
We'd still love our tears

So why is it downhill from here?
Who told us life was to be though?
Isn't it enough to face our fears?
Should every word be rough?

Truth has a funny way to laugh
At our pursuit of happiness
It knows what it is to be well off
Even though we but think less

Of all there is you need to learn
One thought above all else stands
Each day that you proudly earn
Belong to those who gave you a hand

Each day is a good day
Whether in birth, in death
Never live one halfway
It could be your last breath


I Shall Be

I shall be known by my words
A truth I can no longer deny
I'd have to live the herds
That kept me in their lie

Don't get me wrong, it's fun
To be one among others
To share a voice, a burden
To be one of the brothers

I'd have to find my voice
To live without comfort
Questioning every choice
Probably till I hit the dirt

I could remain alone forever
To only be known once dead
Lost between passion and anger
A toy of life inside my head

I shall be known by my words
A truth I can no longer deny
I'll move away from the coward
I've been without knowing why



If A Master

If a master came today
Would we recognise him
Or deny him his way
As we did in an hymn

What would he look like?
Would this master be a she?
Would he be more warlike?
Would she make me free?

Would the master talk of trinity?
Knowing we forgot its meaning
Would this dogma be deadly?
Killing all found to be disagreeing

Should we call him a guru?
Oblivious to race, preaching love
Would he write with virtue?
As we know not what's above

If a master came today
Would it change our destiny?
Would I mend my ways?
Or stick to my own reality?

Maybe we've already met
And I was too busy to know
That what makes me fret
Was solved long ago



In The Moment

You're not in the moment
Unless you see the glory
Of every gesture, every want
Even if it's not your destiny

It's easier to live in the past
Cherishing a love long lost
A memory disappearing fast
Sometimes forgotten at all cost

It's as easy to live in the future
When the only limit is a dream
Even if you're missing the picture
Of a life without any theme

To live in the present is a gift
We seem to ignore with pleasure
Preferring to be ever so swift
Making sure we miss the hour

Be in the moment, it's all there is
Every thought is but life's shadow
What you see will leave with ease
Just as you did so long ago


Misunderstood

Talk is cheap, silence golden
Both a ridiculous burden
We carry as a mantra
When all it is, is dogma

Let's talk and understand
Our thought can't be grand
Unless we both get into
Each other's point of view

Why do I often fail to see
That when I judge quickly
My words loose their power
Yet I can't face my failure

So why do I blame you
For doing what I do
When I've told you before
So much you should ignore

Here lies our major flaw
As I have told you so
We're only misunderstood
When to our truth we elude


Cry

There is a little boy crying right now
For a father who died in a lost war
For a mother who knows not how
To keep from running out the door

There is a daughter crying right now
For her family’s undivided attention
As she angrily allows herself to vow
To kill her love with extreme reason

There is a father crying right now
For a son whose future was taken
Questioning why would God allow
To leave him behind forever broken

There is a mother crying right now
As her life is going against her will
Hoping her children will never bow
To the power of death standing still

Do you cry when life goes awry?
Or keep those sissy tears inside
Never allowing anyone to see
Your broken dreams thrown aside


All is a prayer

Every act, every thought
Is a prayer in waiting
A battle to be fought
As you free your thinking

The words you utter
Without even believing
Praise of kill another
As you pray to the dying

Every gesture you let go
Out of pain or pleasure
Is like a gift you borrow
Against the will of the giver

Your life is a prayer
To a God so personal
No other has the answer
To your own survival

All of nature is a prayer
Us, a rock, a tree, a bee
All in their view differ
On the value of their destiny



All that you know

All that you know
Always changes
All that you sow
Always deranges

Fear the unknown
If you must so live
Yet nothing's grown
Unless you believe

To know is eternal
Yet you’re lost in time
As the word on the wall
Crumbles in the sublime

Learn all there is
Yet there is nothing
You'll learn with ease
If you're all knowing

In this simple paradox
Wisdom plays tricks
Awareness it unlocks
As you cross the Styx

To know or to believe
That's the only question
That would relieve
The deepest reason

Beauty

So subjective, yet recognized by all
Beauty is in the eye of those who behold
Unconnected to the sit of our soul
Unified in an unclear dream so old

There is beauty in every single soul
Aware that it was always whole
When betrayed by those who cajole
It still knows what in life is its role

Do you possess the gift of reality?
Being aware that all is true beauty
Seeing God in everything crazy
Especially when you behave wrongly

What of the beauty of tomorrow?
Entangled in its own eternal sorrow
Why do we cry, it was so long ago
That yesterday took our ego

In return, what about the memories
That every old men with him carries
A glory that each of us only sees
As we turn away from those lustful orgies

So beauty, behold the man, the woman
Who cherished you when you began?
And now can only let go of the plan
To keep it forever, as you still think you can

Classic Music

Listen to the heavenly notes
Of gifted souls, of sinful men
Of the mistakes they wrote
As they play it again, and again

Have you ever been stopped
By an endless crescendo
Until it finally had to adopt
A reason in tune with its shadow

So strange, a music so classic
Would resist the test of time
And bring a message rather cryptic
To crowds who don't give a damn

In each note the instrument expresses
Resides a lifetime, even a world of beauty
Where in sequence it actually dances
Within the hearts of those who don't have any

Music is the sound of an eternal magic
The remain of a God who saw its light
Broke his heart in a moment so dramatic
We still live in its shadow, forever finite

I Am My Evil Twin

I am my evil twin
My own son of Satan
All souls I must win
Even if you're a charlatan

There is nothing in a name
That would protect you
For all the souls I blame
Of the one they all grew

I fear nothing but myself
Being truly selfish and dark
I'd sell you for more wealth
If I only knew how to bark

Each owns a dual side
A self-complement
Often taken for a ride
To my own detriment

I am my evil twin
A duality in trilogy
You can never win
Unless I'm free

If

If I do the right thing
The beautiful thing
The really real thing
For that second
The world is better
My world is better
I need not be altruistic
Forever focused on others
I just need to do the right thing


Kumara

Kumara, the sound of love
Daughter of the four twins
Teacher of us in trove
Have you fallen in ruin?

Love unconditional you taught
Spread in a thirteen schools
Growing in what we taught
Moving away from the fools

You awaken the heart
A chakra run by fools
None of us are apart
If we know the rule

Today as children you pursue
An ideal we all long to own
For all knew without a clue
It couldn't be you we'd atone

Sanaka, Sanatana,
Sanandana, Sanatkumara
Sages of a world so ancient
Make us forget love this instant


Violence

There is violence in me
A hate I cannot tame
I often have to flee
A thought I cannot blame

Such a dark power
For such a small mind
Not even a glimmer
Of a hope so blind

I am truly deranged
To think I can let go
Of a life estranged
By what I know

Should I fear violence?
Take it as liberation
Just like an evil dance
Without destination

No matter what I do
It's in me, it's me
I should be a fool
To ignore its beauty


Anticipation

Anticipation is the mother of all desires
A force in itself so strong none can resist
The split second before we lit the fires
That makes reason cease to exist

Striving to relive such moment forever
None of us truly know why we wish it so
To see the time when life will turn sour
Confirms, we anticipated this long ago

Every wish, every experience, even action
Speak of a truth that we foresee in our future
A state of mind that goes way beyond reason
When all dreams will lead to a single desire

Why are we so blind to endlessly ignore
That we’re not driven by a logic we possess
We play in life to simply love and adore
The moment we always wanted to repress

To give-in to anticipation is but a sin, a temptation
And to seek the goal we so cleverly designed
We have to live repressed, even without caution
Before we reach the divine climax we were assigned

It's Dark

There is a side in us all
Darker than our thoughts
A desire so primeval
It’s always been fought

An archetype of a lost past
Few realise its true power
Yet we succumb to it so fast
It feels like we’re the author

Like a perfect circle cut in two
We live between two sides
Angelique, and evil too
Following our emotional tides

Am I good cause I know bad?
Do I pursue the rightful path?
Will I ever be truly glad, sad?
Can I ever escape this wrath?

Of the questions we must ask
We can’t forgive the reality
That in us is a side so dark
We need it to reach our divinity

Of Truth and Lies

I speak my mind, for that's all I know
And for every lie I say to you also
I realize that the truth will not grow
Unless we realise, we all know it so

There is a paradox in our unified mind
To be all the same, in thought aligned
We need a diversity that cannot but bind
Even if such love will forever be blind

Yet lying is a goddess, a sweet sorrow
Taking us to a place that we, alone, cannot go
Showing a world full of our broken ego
With regrets and shame as our shadow

How to chose among the truth and lies
Unless a God has made us so wise
Where is the middle, that compromise
That I often see in the other’s eyes?

Of truth and lies I’ll speak forever
Falling between the question, the answer
To what can only be called a prayer
I’ve never been so sure of my future

Illusion

I see God in everything
Oh, bright, terrible illusion
Why do keep on coming
Ah, to be one with reason

I’m like a fool with a dream
Constantly seeing the best
Like a forever recurring theme
Never in me, always in the rest

Not by choice, nor sacrifice
This illusion’s driving me mad
Nothing I do will ever suffice
To a God who’s declared me bad

What quality will redeem
A wretched soul who’s only sin
Has been to live to the extreme
Unaware of the balance within

For in or out, stands an illusion
Call it you, another, even God
Regardless of your passion
This reality is already flawed


Knowing God

Will I ever know God
In this life or the next
Why does it seem odd
To live life as a pretext

If his presence is everywhere
His existence without limits
In his thoughts in cannot err
Why can’t we live as if it exists

Not tomorrow or the day after
But today, now, in every second
We are God as it lives for the better
Knowing we will come around

No one should wait for salvation
There is nothing, no one to save
We are who we are for a reason
To know that truth is to be brave

We know not God because we can
Whether by faith or sheer will power
We know him in this life’s span
Cause we are to be the answer

Expectations

Don't put your expectations on me
Why would you think I asked for them?
Don’t ever expect anything of me
You’ll have to be the one to blame

This is not a testament to the lazy
It’s a manifesto to those who live
No one has a life that’s really easy
Why should I be your captive?

I expect nothing from you, I can’t
I have no right to tell you what to do
Even if I’m wrong and even repent
It would be worse if I was your guru

What would you inflict the same pain?
Pretend your care and carefully judge
Another who’s only fault was to slain
An entrenched evil that wouldn’t budge

So be careful what you expect of me
The worst curse is to think you’re correct
I could return and preach the same idea
And expect you to be always perfect

Loving

It must be easy to love
If you possess the gift
But to do so at all time
Takes much out of you

Beware of all the givers
Who take without fear
They will descend on you
Like if it wasn’t tomorrow

It is often a classic truth
That to love a stranger
Is easier than a brother
Despite nature’s order

Love is such a burden
When the other decides
That you should give more
So they forget their own pain

To be loving is a choice
Few make for they pray
That the love they need
Will be given to them



A Friend She Was

For a brief slice of life
We knew her as a friend
Loaded with joy and strife
She was never bland

She came into our lives
As only a woman knows
Friend to husband, to wives
We forgot to grow close

In a thousand ways
Showering her life to all
Alive till the end of her days
She left standing tall


How do you remember
Someone you can't forget
Do you keep the better
And ignore what to regret

A friend she was
That's all there is
No more hurrahs
She is at ease


An Image, A Sound

Did you see the sound
Did you hear the image
Aren't these words profound
When you mess the verbiage

In our futile wisdom
Stand a bunch of words
Spoken in ageless rhythm
By clueless wizards

We barely dream well
So why bother thinking
We build our own hell
When we stop imagining

The beauty of an image
That we see or hear
Matches the homage
As the sound appear

What you see, what you hear
Is the fantasy of your own destiny
No one else controls your fear
As long as you know it's all clear


Awareness

Let's start a school
For awareness alone
Where all but a fool
Will call it home

We'll teach wisdom
As if it was a topic
And to kill boredom
We'll try to be meek

We'll discuss masters
Think of their thoughts
Pointing their errors
Before we're caught

And of the wrong masters
We'll try to grasp ideas
Pointing to their errors
In each of our faux-pas

We'll talk in parables
Hiding the reality
To the undesirable
Who thinks truthfully

If it could be taught
We'll all be the wiser
Relying on thoughts
To be more clever

We'll all become aware
Of the little we know
Especially when we dare
To question the status quo

Awareness is a present
We often don't deserve
Unaware that the present
Is the only place we can serve



Ball of Old Fools

As we watch our elders dance away
A life that was once theirs to waste
We can't but wonder, if that elder sway
Will be one day but ours to taste

Praise the young who can only believe
That they know all there is to know
Ignoring advice believed to deceive
As they no longer need to grow

If experience is but a teacher
Then know that we're all fools
From victory to a bed of errors
We lie without knowing the rules

Life is a dance that will one day stop
Until then, we dance with others
Even if alone, we'll reach the top
When the second reaches the hour

Oh, God of time, you spirit away
Our hope, our dreams, our fears
Nothing can ever stand in your way
As you wipe away all frontiers



Day Break

As day breaks the monotony of night
We will not wake up without a fight
As we sleep to keep the dream alive
No strange event will be kept alive

As day breaks our forced solitude
We complain with force and attitude
We'd rather be lost in a dream
Than alive in live-less scream

Day break wins every time
And looses a few hour later
There's nothing more sublime
Than the war of the hour

Of which are you the knight
Of the day, do you claim favour
Of the night, do you claim sight
Know that both are forever

Never loose control over time
For the day will come quickly
You'll redeem every crime
And might even feel sorry


Did to you

Fascinating
I just did to you
What you wanted
To do to me

But what did I do
That was so bad
Since you thought
The same thing

Now you blame
Gods and friends
For a fault
That is yours

While I claim
Innocence
In a battle
We share

I did to you
What's right
In my view
Not yours

You did to me
What's right
In your view
Not mine



Life's a circle

Life's a circle
Or a square
I see double
But where

Life's a square
Yet a circle
To be fair
All is whole

Life is a line
Coming to nil
A dot sublime
Of the one will

Turn ahead
Don't look back
Never be afraid
To miss the track

Life's a circle
We live linear
Happy trouble
We don't go far

Loves Hurt

Loves hurt, there is no doubt
With or without expectations
But unless you take that route
You'll never know its reasons

For love to be true, know this
No expectations is required
What you love is all there is
It can never be acquired

True love has no reason
And therefore cannot hurt
Yet we fail with each lesson
And expect love from a flirt

The worse cross we all bear
Is that when bruised, we fight
And kill another's prayer
Cause we hate not to be right

Who knows love without pain
Show him to me, the coward
Who has never been slain
By a feeling moving forward


Pointless

Do not resist time
It will liberate you
Show you the sublime
Teach you to be you

Fight against your will
As if it knows you
It won't remain still
Let you sin on cue

Nothing matters
Yet at this second
With nothing to offer
You can only pause

Why take the dream
A point, nothing less
Of another's theme
Of another's chess

Resist the pointless
Give it a bad name
Know that you posses
The right not to blame

Slave To No one

Slave to no one
Master to none
None have won
Till we are gone

Never depend
On another
Even a friend
Can turn sour

Be fiercely you
Stand alone
If you have to

Trust nobody
Doubt even less
You are as free
As you confess

Never be a slave
By force or choice
Always be brave
Use your voice


Strange, Weird, Bizarre, Odd Even

This world is strange

Weird, bizarre, odd even
Maybe all must change
As little of it is given

Does the will exist
To transform it all
Who wouldn't resist
A force that makes us fall

Needless to say
Mankind is at fault

Arguing our way
Till our ego exalts

It is odd, no question
That the weird, the bizarre
Attracts more attention
Than who we truly are

No point in arguing
We have to shed
This life unending
To the soul instead


Victory

There is but one victory
The one over your ego
There is but one ennemy
The one we believe so

To win or loose is a choice
But who should we believe
The world? Our inner voice?
Which God will let us live?

With so few hours left in us
We'll win this battle over death
For in passing we are victorious
Over the hold of our first breath

Here lies a truth so real
We know not how to win
Going through life with zeal
We hold on to every sin

Victory is for us to make
Out of errors and little wins
To be true, nothing to fake
Or, again, it'll all begin


Victory

There is but one victory
The one over your ego
There is but one enemy
The one we believe so

To win or loose is a choice
But who should we believe?
The world? Our inner voice?
Which God will let us live?

With so few hours left in us
We'll win this battle over death
For in passing we are victorious
Over the hold of our first breath

Here lies a truth so real
We know not how to win
Going through life with zeal
We hold on to every sin

Victory is for us to make
Out of errors and little wins
To be true, nothing to fake
Or, again, it'll all begin



Strange, Weird, Bizarre, Odd Even

This world is strange

Weird, bizarre, odd even
Maybe all must change
As little of it is given

Does the will exist
To transform it all
Who wouldn't resist
A force that makes us fall

Needless to say
Mankind is at fault
Arguing our way
Till our ego exalts

It is odd, no question
That the weird, the bizarre
Attracts more attention
Than who we truly are

No point in arguing
We have to shed
This life unending
To the soul instead

Betrayal

Betraying is not an option
It will happen, has to happen
For the most stupid reason
For our faith to deepen

A loved one, a friend
Will suffer your decision
Carry it till the end
It's their greatest treason

For they'll hide their pain
Unaware you're unaware
Thinking this new rain
Can only be yours to bear

Ourselves we punish
When we speak not
Let a betrayal flourish
Destroying all you've got

Speak with all your might
It is the only way to live
The temptation to be right
Might never let you forgive

Faithful's Call

See them walk to the square
At the call of the fading bell
They're the faithful who dare
Believe what he has to sell

Admire their faith unshaken
By a knowledge so unreal
A religion to us was given
Asking nothing but zeal

Do not question your faith
Martyr evil with questions
In your belief, be relentless
Kill all others reasons

Convince they who are wrong
Give what they know not
Use peaceful words to the strong
Or hatred to the undecided sot

If you listen to the faithful call
Do it out of a heart so pure
None will question your fall
As you face what you'll endure


Free me

Free me from pain and I'll forget
Prayers and promises I've made
But free me from any heartache
And to your will I will abide

Free me from thoughts unwanted
Give me control over my dreams
Leaving behind what's not needed
Let me select among my whims

Free me from the dependence
That others place upon me
Even though I have the chance
To ignore them and be free

Free me from a future written
In stars that I know nothing of
By a God, maybe you, smitten
Seeing his own creation takeoff

Free me from my own desires
To be more like you, perfect
Let all the fault I acquire
Be the life I truly select



Love By Any Other Name

Friendship
Closeness
Hardship
Sadness

Humour
Hate
Furor
Fate

Hope
Talk
Thought
Walk

Dance
Book
Trance
Hook

Beauty
Opinion
Free
Reason

Love by any other name
Can never be the same
This duality of emotions
Is the nicest of all prisons



See Through You

I see through you
I'm your mirror
Nothing to do
It's no error

We're each other
In this comedy
Joy and horror
Are what we see

What you do
Is what I say
And for me too
You're the way

No reason to fight
Or be at peace
You're often right
I’m but a piece

You see through me
Each other we adore
Of life we're free
That's what love's for



The Grey Rose

Facing a thousand year of pain
Any angel would give his soul
To the grey rose whose heart slain
Holds our thoughts most whole

Born in the fire of love and hate
A gift even the Gods didn't want
The core of our languishing fate
This rose, any wishes grants

Reading us before we are
Brings our secrets for all to see
Your petals reach deep and far
Making us troubled but free

Tell us this, oh Grey rose
Would you kill our hopes
If our lives would arose
Higher than your thoughts

Of the Gods who made you
Do you keep their madness
Greyed by jealousy too
Lost between joy and sadness



It's Not In Me

I don't have it in me
To live any other way
To see what I see
To say what I say

To give-up on fate
Even before hope
I'll need to so hate
A life unsought

Faking emotions
Crying till the rain
Stands out of reason
Eliminating the pain

Why shying away
From who I am
When the only way
Is to be damned

It's not in me to be
As I need to dream
To act out of folly
To die with a scream

More

You've done more for me
Than I've done for you
Without asking for a fee
Sans demander un sou

With less to our name
Than a dream of hope
We long less for fame
And more to be taught

Yet, this world of ours
Is more than we need
Our lives it devours
After we succeed

There is always more
Than we aspire to
It is deep in our core
If it's not we, then who?

For the other's at fault
As we justify our lives
Greedy without halt
Barely able to survive

You'll always do more for me
Than I can ever do for others
It is a deplorable destiny
To depend on your favours


Temptation

Lead me into temptation
Foolish Gods of this age
Make me forget reason
Me, the unwilling sage

Tempt me with your soul
Show me what it takes
To forget my sad role
To live as a true fake

Forgetting my opinion
It's value so unproven
Ignoring my position
I stand deeply uneven

It would be so easy
To see another's view
Nothing would be free
To us who nothing's due

To tempt is to want
What we can't have
Even if it will flaunt
Any pleasure we derive



Time Makes No Sense

Time makes no sense
To the untrained eye
A random sequence
Forcing us to die

To the religious
It leads to liberation
Yet they're envious
Of those with reason

To the intellectual
It's but a measure
Of that we know all
Without any pleasure

As for the rest of us
It's the sun, the moon
It makes us anxious
As it running out soon

Time makes no sense
There is only now
Yet in its defense
To pass, I'll allow


We Have

We have a power none possess
A vision of the world ours alone
What we do in our mind's recess
Is but ours to know, to own

We have the power to hurt
Ourselves, even another
Yet to love endlessly, to flirt
It is our right, our honour

We have the power to kill
With a careful thought, a word
And as our lives stand still
We are orphans, often cowards

We have the power to help
Those we love, we hate
For each emotion felt
We seal our life, our fate

We have the power to know
What no one else knows
Without restriction, nor bravado
We ignore what another shows



A Taste For The World

Develop a taste for the world
Be materialistic till the end
For life has to be hurled
To know the way to ascend

Criticise no more the pagan
Who makes love to the earth
Aware that he is a brahman
In the eyes of your birth

Try everything there is
Learn all you can learn
From health to disease
Reclaim the right to burn

Let your passions come out
Remove the barriers inside
Destroy the smallest doubt
Let the bland step aside

This taste for the world
Will follow you forever
It might feel awkward
As you are who you were


Fallen Heroes

They live in ours memories
Those who died as heroes
Marching to greater glories
Or helpers in the shadows

Ah, to be a hero in your eyes
To feel an embracing glare
So dependent on the prize
So attached to the air

Do you know such a person
Who gave life and possessions
To follow another's reason
To the highest missions

What about the simple soul
Who helped you in time dire
Without questions, nor control
Forgetting even his own desire

Those heroes who have fallen
Lead armies or a life simple
Both never to be beaten
By our ungrateful wrangle


Change

Words change my soul
That's their main duty
To reveal my life's role
And make me free

You change me further
Revealing a side of me
That none with rigueur
Can respect or agree

Changing with a thought
Following a shallow whim
Our actions have but taught
Nothing's stronger than a dream

It's in taking a different path
That we learn who we are
Where lies the greener grass
Often in a field forever afar

Change for real or to please
Another soul with whom you are
But change, never stand at ease
For you'll die before your star



Silence Speaks

Silence speaks to me
In a way words can't
Unable to even see
Their double slant

All real wisdom
Is gained in silence
Can you fathom
Such a wild trance

Silence doesn't exist
Without some noise
A twin each resist
In search of its voice

Silence actually speaks
To those ready to hear
Its soft voice, soft music
Plays without fear

Open your heart, your soul
To the role of silence true
Stop, admire, take a stroll
Take it in, as the wise do

Chance

Chance favours the ready
Or so the lucky ones say
Enjoying a life we envy
From risk we stay away

Taking a chance in life
Whether we act or learn
Unable to limit strife
Never to kill all concerns

Is there any other way
But to listen to chance
Who can truly say
The result of romance

Chance is a love affair
With a life full of wonders
Of each moment to be aware
To learn for all those errors

Take a chance, don’t give up
Stand tall and claim your right
Make mistakes, do not backup
Life is the best of all fights
Finish

Finish school, finish what you've started
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise
While by freedom you'll be tempted
To be dependent on others isn't wise

From start to finish, we stumble
Often sleeping, sometimes awaken
To a glorious role all but humble
Jeopardised by an ego unshaken

It’s easy to start anything no one needs
Giving your life to prove them wrong
Going against all odds, all good deeds
Showing them who’s truly strong

But to know what the world needs
Despite its claim for what it wants
To give it all, reframing all creeds
Ignoring pains that forever haunts

For your own sake, start doing
And once in a while, finish a few
For it is easier to be dreaming
Than to come-up with something new
Sacrifice

What would you give to get what you want
How much of your soul would you sell?
Would you bargain your life to be savant?
Would you willingly enter the gates of hell?

We want it all, without a single sacrifice
We give what we have to have more
As to evil we come of our own device
Pushed by a force we often implore

Yet sacrifice requires a belief
For with no faith in anything
Life and death can only be brief
A thought in the eyes of the dying

Feel no shame if you never give
Who’s to say that this is the way
For no one knows your true motive
Even a sacrifice can lead you astray

If you believe in sacrifice for the greater good
Pray to your God, repent your sinful ways
Use your will to seek and achieve sainthood
For your faith will not survive the end of days


The Worst, The Best

We are the worst
And yet still the best
Exploding in a burst
Of our ego’s unrest

Fleeting between the two
Living in complete insanity
As in fact we have no clue
Which one is our destiny

If you’re the worst there is
Then choose to be the best
Ignore morale for it carries
The potential to be blessed

If you’re the best in all eternity
Then learn from the worst
For in darkness lies the reality
A good thought is easily cursed

For all with no choice in the matter
Seeding the worst with our silence
Knowing that we could be better
As we live in imperfect balance





My Friend The Sun

Waking-up in the morning
Shedding the night for glory
It's a sight that few are seeing
Caught-up in their own destiny

Ah you, my old friend the sun
Growing stronger as you fade
As you start another sky run
Nourish man, each grass blade

We see you in all the shadows
Dressing our streets, our fields
In every single seed that grows
In every darkness that yields

Here before us, once a centre
We finally saw your circle
No longer the god of the hour
Yet the seal of an angel

I praise the day that saw your birth
In four spoken words you came atop
I am thankful to know your worth
And pray to never see you drop

Joy

Joy is in all moments
To realise this power
Be in the same instant
Do not think of the hour

Write about joy always
Even in deepest sorrow
It's a feeling that stays
Even with no tomorrow

It is hard to never doubt
To find joy everywhere
Yet in every word you shout
Plant a seed to kill despair

Joy is a choice we make
With our lives, our thoughts
Nothing can make us break
If we accept to be taught

Rejoice in the love that abounds
When you open your heart
To others, to the world around
See the beauty in every fart


Spiritual Overdose

When is enough truly enough
When the spiritual has no appeal
When philosophy feels like bluff
When life has nothing to reveal

Too much inner searching
Makes me forget who I am
What is it that I’m dreaming?
Why does it feel like a sham?

Reaching a point of no return
Lost between two beliefs
With no difference to discern
Isn’t it time to turn a new leaf?

But without a spiritual slant
How to live a life of meaning?
No stories to a day enchant
Is life truly worth living?

Here lies the hypocrisy
To reach such discontent
I took a path so uneasy
And lived with intent



Mundane

Behold the mundane flower
Who owns a terrible secret
The knowledge of her power
Will feel you with regrets

Behold the mundane face
Who we scorn at every turn
As she’s trying to efface
A passion that all will burn

Behold the mundane bee
Carrier of the old word
Busying herself silly
A sister well mannered

Behold the mundane thought
Carrying the essence of creation
Originating in the eternal naught
Source of the power of question

Behold the mundane
Let’s not judge what we see
It would make us insane
To be unable to foresee


Nothing

Nothing you can say
Nothing you can feel
Leave me alone today
I will find a way to heal

Why try to help me
I know who I am
One day, you'll see
I won't give a damn

But right now is mine
For a love lost, crying
Or maybe I am fine
Am simply sleeping

Either way, be gone
The strength is in me
To learn and be done
With what you can't see

There is nothing for you
It is really all about me
I will come out anew
I love life, I'll be ready


Blame

I'll never blame you
Even for that thought
You did what you knew
It's nobody's fault

Quite the contrary
Your life I admire
Being there for me
At every hour

Did you blame me
For not answering
Unwilling to see
What I'd be missing

I am to blame for all
A responsibility I fear
It's easier to build a wall
And let others be in tears

Often we blame others
For a fault of our own
Everywhere are mirrors
That easily condone


Faults & Virtues

Between fault and virtue
Choosing should be easy
Yet when nothing's due
We balance freely

Virtue has good morals
A simplicity strenuous
For all of us mortals
Nothing is so serious

Each Fault has its beauty
Cherished among Gods
How to deny them really
As they are, against all odds

Mistresses of us fools
Twin sisters of time
Evolving without rules
Your control is sublime

Oh fault, oh virtue
Do not make us choose
Give us what is true
Do not let us loose


Be a Friend

If you want friends
Be one they say
Be one till the end
There's no other way

Yet there are days
Best spent alone
As what one says
Can't be sown

And what of those
Taking for granted
That their own woes
By us be waited

What is a friend
But our own mirror
Of a different hand
Of other joys, horrors

Be a friend
Nothing matters
But the joy you send
Received by others


Failed Yet Again

Failure is not an option
It is but a way of life
A gift far from reason
The end of endless strife

To fail is to try, isn't it?
Two words many hate
Nothing is so sweet
As to win against fate

How many time must you
Before you learn reality
There's nothing to do
But to admire its beauty

Failing despite ourselves
Just as we succeed
A book full of shelves
Of all the mistakes we need

Failing is a curse
Killer of the soul
Nothing disperse
The giver of role


Jaded

There is nothing interesting
No questions really answered
All Gods eventually disappointing
No words truly meaningful
No thoughts actually challenging
This is the end of the world
Jaded to death, not ready to die
How to find the magic of life
To keep on living with hope
When all dreams are gone
No reasons left to progress
Not even a spark of sadness
Can keep us truly alive
A long list of pseudo-reasons
Keep us from moving on
Even such euphemism
Carries no meaning anymore
No pain, no joy, no present
Days are timeless, endless


Time Less

Less time makes sense
We spin around forever
Always in the past tense
We loose life in the hour

For the now is all there is
Just as yesterday was now
Tomorrow will be a tease
Another now we will allow

Timelessness is such a curse
Yet, the source of all we are
So many angels are perverse
Turning demons into a star

What is a mission without end
When the second has turned
Will you remember the hand
That was never returned

Logic and emotions fail
When time is less than it is
For every life we derail
Death comes with such ease


Place Your Faith

Place your faith in another
And you will be disappointed
Yet you might a lost brother
In the secret of a life wounded

Place your faith in the material
And you might even be fated
Yet despite annoying trials
You life could be boosted

Place your faith in the spirit
And you could be anointed
You might even have merit
And live a life enchanted

Place your faith in God
And you could be forgiven
You might even find it odd
That your sins lead to heaven

Place your faith in you
And you could be right
Between evil and virtue
You might win without a fight

But for the life of me
Your faith must be placed
None of these roads will be easy
At least, your soul won't go to waste



No Name, No Stone

How many have passed away
Forgotten, no name, no stone
Souls with nothing left to say
Lives gone, cut to the bone

Each but a library of emotions
Crushed between joy and hate
Surrendering always to passions
To their death they were not late

Remembering some in thoughts
Countless lost to the depth of time
In what dream were they caught?
Forgetting them is not a crime

Yet they made us who we are
Their simple lives mattered
They're in us, how bizarre
They silent prayer, answered

No name, no stone for the common
Only remembered by their children
They're presence was a summon
Let's live as if we were in heaven

Creation

How could the one, perfect
Create such an imperfection
Unless we are but the subject
Of the theory of the question

To create is divine for sure
Making things up from within
There is nothing more pure
To express the yang, the yin

We can all create whatever
With or, often, without an aim
To toil at it all day with ardour
Let our mind go without refrain

So we are perfect by default
Born in this state unwilling
We ignore that blessed salt
In favour of endless babbling

This given life, we created
Playing God for the fun of it
Till we realise it's enchanted
We'll praise the wrong culprit


Battles

No one wins a war
We only lose people
When we go so far
We forget our role

Battles of the many
Decided by the few
No one else can see
The reason in folly

Training, re-training
Till nothing's left to learn
Ultimate goal, winning
Even if we burn

We battled everyday
A cunning enemy
Who wants his way
We are it, you see

Listen to the call
Before the fall
So for one, for all
We battle our soul


Death Takes So Much

Death takes so much
Yet gives us so little
Unless you touch
A God so brittle

Is it the beginning
Or an end so dark
What of our being
What of our spark

Is there nothing
Is heaven waiting
For us to be dying
Of a soul never ending

Why can't we remember
What we've forgotten
Was it much brighter
Than this role given

Death has already taken
Those we loved so dear
It can wait till we're broken
To alleviate our fear


Rules

We live by rules
Or die by them
We must be a tool
In our own poem

Timeless edicts
Lost in our past
Each critics
Ideas so vast

Rules saves us
From stupidity
Never anxious
To behave badly

God or man made
They are the same
As in us we fade
When we blame

The gift of rules
Evades logic
Taking the fools
In tragic magic


The Unwritten

Some thoughts better left unsaid
Many stories, better left unwritten
As for each, the price to be paid
Is never worth the lesson given

To those living in quiet folly
As if the sake of another
Mattered more than your story
Either to not be repeated ever

If you live under codes so secret
That you know not whom you serve
One day, you will wake-up to regret
Always, getting what you deserve

To those shadows of history
You lives mattered in the end
Without you, this reality
Will not be so grand

So live as if you counted
Express you deeper opinions
Each light cannot be wasted
We are, after all, legions

In Death

In death, I cry not for the departed
I cry for my own selfish sorrow
For I bare not to be cheated
Of those who listened to my ego

Yet in it, I see the life I had
Good, bad and in between
None can truly make me sad
As I know it’s only a scene

All one we are supposed to be
Yet I can only take life selfishly
Centered in my desire to see
And judge all, ever so brashly

So everyday I see my own God
Treasuring the power he gave
Thinking that everyone is awed
By a creation that can’t behave

And in this day, I prepare death
Learning all that I’ll never need
Each as a symbol of the breath
Taken by another who breast-feeds



Meaningless

When the greatest words
No longer take you forward
When the best intentions
Are to be seen with suspicion
You know it’s the beginning
Of a life without meaning

Why fight what is inevitable
All our thoughts are brittle
Unable to resist time’s fate
As we feel not love nor hate
Towards ourselves, or the other
Unaware that we become weaker

In the days we’re meant to live
We avoid thinking, yet stay active
As we prefer not to know too much
Should reason reach us and touch
Giving our soul its true meaning
To go forth, even when dying


I am Evil

I am evil
I know that now

I am divine
I know that too

My thoughts, words, acts
Are here to serve no one but me

Your happiness, as it happens
A by-product of a misplaced will

Yet my happiness depends on you
Here lies the unknown paradox

For to know you are evil
The divine light has to be burning

I am evil
I know that now

I am divine
I know that too



The Future

Keep an eye on the future
It will soon be yesterday
In an unforgiving gesture
Time erases the way

Is it written in the stars
That you shall pass on
Should you travel far
To start, as in ‘once upon’

Is your past the source
Of a tomorrow you hate
Or but another course
In the life that awaits

Thinking only of tomorrow
And forgetting the present
Brings a reality full of sorrow
For loosing such a moment

The past , the future live today
Nothing will ever matter more
Than the second giving way
To another, a sister, a whore


What the...

What the fuck am I doing here?
Why did I forget what I'd learned?
Nothing I see is as it appears
My memories, weren’t they earned?

Why don’t I have a map, a goal?
Why aren't we working together?
To reach the ultimate whole
The one who made us actors

Where on earth is this heaven?
Than the chosen ones talk about
We constantly have to outrun
The feelings that make us doubt

Where am I going at such speed?
Will I be better off once there?
Why am I judged by my deeds?
What of thoughts and nightmares?

What the fuck am I doing here?
Why come if it’s to go back?
There, there was nothing to fear
Here, everything is rather black


Listen to Nature

Listen to nature, it speaks not
Yet its every word transcend
Everything we thought we forgot
From the beginning till the end

Nature was here before us
As a planet, a god, a goddess
As we remain fearful, anxious
We know it knows we’re careless

We’ve forgotten the words in the wind
They’re truth has gone from our lips
The old contract we chose to rescind
And live by the wit of our quips

Of all the problems we’ve ever faced
Nature had the answer all along
As the sons of the fallen, the disgraced
We thought we would never be wrong

Listen to nature, to God, it’s the same path
In the Garden of Eden we already live
And to those who believe in its wrath
Never forget nature’s capacity to forgive



Without Sound

Life is sound
Words are sound
Music is sound
Life is sound

Sound of life
Plays simply
Endless strife
Our glory

Words vibrate
Dance eternal
Forever eight
Nothing final

Music lives
In all hearts
All captive
Divine Art

Without sound
We cease
Nothing abound
We decrease


Connected

How are we connected
You I know nothing of
What string enchanted
Can never keep us off

You are my mirror
As you sit facing me
It’s not an error
We are who we see

Each thought you claim
Belongs to me, to another
As we are but the same
Yet we’ll never surrender

As we watch our lives differ
Unaware we think the same
We couldn’t be prouder
Of the one we’re about to blame

We are children of the same thought
A word we have long since forgotten
We strive to ignore what we’ve taught
To ensure no one will ever listen



Don’t

Don’t let me destroy you
In my thoughts, in my words
With you, I want nothing to do
Rather than act as a bastard

Don’t even think of the same
For I’ll fight till the bitter end
Realise, this is not a game
It’s for our lives that we fend

Don’t criticize what you know not
Embrace it, ignore it, pass it on
For an idea could save our lot
Unless killed by a moron

Don’t let me define you
For what do I know
I barely have a clue
Of my own ego

Don’t, simply don’t
Yourself you must build
As others won’t
Stop when fulfilled



The Fourth Day

On the fourth day
The sun shone
The moon gave way
Greater, lesser, alone

Since such elusive lights
We’ve learned much more
Yet we still keep up the fight
Uncertain of what to adore

The fourth day lights
Of such outer dimension
Gives us no insights
Not even a reason

This truth we seek
Makes us mad
For we are weak
Possibly sad

As what you seek
Comes in three
A trinity mystique
Inwards, we’re free



Giving-up

Giving-up is a strange sensation
Lost between a reason, an emotion
It feeds upon itself without aim
For a life we can no longer claim

To give-up is a sign of weakness
A gift we own, often senseless
A reason to take another road
An excuse for a logic flawed

Yet it also demonstrate strength
As we often go to great length
To justify one way or another
A reason we chose for the better

Yet in the many crossroads we face
To let go of a way without disgrace
We need to decide which to take
And choose the one to forsake

Choices make us who we are
Our hearts are constantly at war
Between giving-up or taking
The right road without asking


More Than One

Can you love more than one God
And still be faithful to one only
Would such belief be really odd
Against what we know of reality

What about a friend, a spouse
Wouldn’t you be split apart
Such feeling would arouse
A confusion without a start

For one, the heart wasn’t meant
It belongs to all who truly love
One another without restraint
Without any fear from above

Yet, to learn such a lesson
We need to face heartaches
Without the fear of treason
Ready to make every mistake

For more than one, we were made
As time passes for such reason
To experience a life that evades
Those choosing to ignore the lesson


Nature of Light

It is the real nature of light
To change the mind of nature
Opening the doors of delight
Showing our true future

Darkness would have us endure
A life devoid of the true light
In order to simply ensure
That we die without a fight

The simple candlelight
Can take a sad, dark room
And turn the wrong to right
Chasing forever the gloom

Open your eyes, see the sun
Burning in each other’s heart
Ready to take off and run
Away from what keeps us apart

Such is the nature of light
AS it changes our nature
Giving us that god given right
To be who we are, to nurture



Nothing

There’s nothing I want
No one I want to meet
No foolish pride to flaunt
Nothing won, no defeat

Nothing has meaning
If you’re alive but alone
Come to the beginning
Live what we’ve known

Nothing makes sense
Today or tomorrow
Not even the sequence
Of the time we borrow

Nothing can be felt
If you have no heart
As you’ve been dealt
A soul unable to start

The world was nothing
It will become again
We are but a plaything
Not even the son of men



The Answer

The answer you seek is not in books
It resides neither in words nor in symbols
It’s not written in the stars, don’t look
It wasn’t even written by angels

The answer resides in the question
The one you ask as you wonder
Is this life I own without reason
Does it lead to something better

Here lies a truth we have forgotten
We read without being challenged
By the very thought that’d christen
The new life in which we’d plunged

To search the answer you seek
You need to change your words
Learn reality and its mystique
Listen to the language of the birds

Every question brings its answer
Not in the new idea you received
In the process which got you closer
As you learn not to be deceived


Everything We Know

Everything we know matters not
Let’s face it, knowledge is futile
The end is not what we thought
We can keep a life so fragile

As you search to know more
Often more than you need
But creating an idol to adore
Knowledge becomes a creed

We are simple mortal beings
Fearful of the everlasting limit
Searching a different ending
To a life all too often pathetic

How do we grow out of such a rut
Do we take the left or right path
Staying honest or prone to shortcuts
An atheist attacked by God’s wrath

And here lies a paradox ancient
We’d forgotten our true way
Relearn to be a being sentient
Then you’ll know it’s child’s play


God’s Work

Are we free to do God’s work
Or is Satan a better employer
In my life, am I but a clerk
Or the star of the morning hour

God’s work seems so far fetch
No knowing where to begin
Our souls we need to stretch
Dead to what we could’ve been

Should we choose the evil glory
Even if for but a moment in time
To be on top, never to feel sorry
Till the call of the angel sublime

If we are of the same blessed image
Why don’t I know right from wrong
Why do I need to become a sage
To understand where I belong

God’s work might be our curse
As we aim to become one again
Tempted by what is perverse
Yet both have the same aim



Heal

Heal thyself, Son of God
Learn the ancient ways
Decide when to be awed
Set your heart ablaze

You own your medicine
In strength, in weakness
Wherever you’ve been
Teach what is ageless

Deep within the recess
Of your soul eternal
Find the word priceless
The sound verbal

Once you’ve learned
What all have let go
Repeat in pure pattern
As above so below

And within no time
You will be at ease
Aware of the sublime
Owner of the lilies


Journey To Madness

I traveled the senseless road
To the eternal end of time
Where reason was flawed
And folly taken for sublime

I passed the valley of fantasy
Unaware that I was in it
I would have walked slowly
If I knew where were my feet

Climbing the mountain of hope
I found the unheard off-reality
Where the mirror had to elope
To reflect on its silly destiny

Following the river of dread
Where all I knew drowned
Of myself, I stayed ahead
After all, I was going around

In the end, nothing stopped
Starting again the same journey
I had to decide what to adopt
Madness, folly or to never be



Sphinx

Answer the eternal riddle
Show me the ages of man
Our civilisation’s cradle
Where it all began

On all four we start
Of mind and soul
Neither is apart
Two in one whole

As we reach the two
We think for ourselves
Where nothing is new
Books are on shelves

When the third appear
We comfort our destiny
Open our hearts to hear
The call of this reality

Finally, the sphinx reappears
Ready to listen to our answer
Did we waste all those tears
Waiting for the ever after


Wanting Nothing

Out of life, I want nothing
To simply give my whole
Reach the eternal ending
Where I will know it all

In those years in between
Tearing out the book of days
To re-write what I’ve seen
Teaching all in my ways

Listening to my own voice
I’ll repeat the word of Adam
Taking control of each choice
Repeating it ad nauseam

When all would have heard
We’ll stop thinking differently
Humanity finally centered
All able to see so clearly

Then I’ll let go of my ego
And stop learning everything
I’ll experience the true zero
I’ll be wanting nothing



Cloudy Sun

Cloudy sun in morning glory
You’ve taken away our hope
Yet your are strong, without pity
Your light shines down our slope

It was a morning like any other
Yet a few knew it was the end
They had prepared for that hour
While the rest talked among friends

Life will never be the same
Without the gold and blue
We’ll strive without aim
Mildly aware of what we knew

Our paths will cross again
As they did yesterday
Trying to remember in vain
What it felt like to know the way

Oh cloudy sun, how cruel
You stand in perpetual motion
I shall miss this eternal duel
As you’ll win without questions



Time and Time Again

The secret of life is not in love
As the opened heart sees
It’s in time below and above
That we learn life’s degrees

Time gives us a simple joy
To experience in sequence
All that we truly hate, enjoy
From the mild to the intense

Allowing us to think through
What we want to do next
To ignore or follow the queue
Of events within their contexts

Without it we can’t appreciate
The romance of a love lost
We wouldn’t be able to wait
Till we’ve paid life’s full cost

Time and time again we gain
An extraordinary chance to live
And eventually, to humbly attain
The ability of our love to give



East to West

Move along, the east
A soul never rests
It’s no small feast
To reach the west

Born in the east
Afraid of the west
Where the beast
Is wholly obsessed

Born in the west
Thinking the east
A thought expressed
Doesn’t even exist

From east to west
We live in agony
Dying without rest
Intertwined destinies

Move along, the West
It’s no small feast
For a soul to not rest
Till it’s in the east


The Evil Carnival

Dance, twisted marionette
Never stop, never give-in
You will one day forget
Where you have been

Star of an evil carnival
Led by a hidden master
Fighting the eternal rival
Source of this disaster

Drawn in the same image
Resembling a lost puppet
Unaware of the damage
Caused when you’re upset

You move rather awkwardly
Through thoughts and ideas
Thought to behave badly
As you ignore their dogma

All the clowns, the animals
Join you in an eternal dance
The moral of this evil carnival
Is you don’t stand a chance


The Ochre Tree

Standing in majesty on the hill
The ochre tree knew its place
In elated destiny, it was its will
To face the sun’s embrace

In the burning morning sun
In the evening disappearing
Can’t see where each begun
Married in colour blurring

Many came to rest and pray
Faced with a life unnerving
Twirled in its endless ballet
They came to finally begin

Sleeping under its shade often
I knew peace’s true meaning
A lack of needs that threatened
The livelihood of the dying

It is still there, the ochre tree
Majestic and always inviting
I shall return to pray and see
A friend always so forgiving


Of this World, I Know Nothing

Of this world, I know nothing
Passing through seven gates
I catch a glimpse of me dying
Watching stages of my fate

In this world, I know even less
Passing through cycles of seven
The many sins I should confess
None can close the door to heaven

This is a world of many failures
Each teaching what we need
With every word, a soul conjures
The destinies that’ll make it bleed

No matter what spirit you claim
You are bound in a machine
That has but no other aim
Than to teach the unseen

In this world, of this world
Pray to know the difference
A simple yet powerful word
Can change your balance



Less Than That

To be less than what you could be
Is an insult to the spirit within
No matter what you say or see
Life needs you to change, to win

Born with an infinite potential
We squander our gift of time
Thinking tomorrow will be special
We forget to live in this lifetime

We learn who we are from others
Seeking validation in another’s eyes
Yet all along, we seek answers
Already within us, under disguise

From time to time, an epiphany
Shows the truth that was there
We are one, of the same destiny
Even when opinions are everywhere

Divine you are, to be less than that
Is the biggest sin you can fathom
Choose to be an eagle or a rat
Either way, the end is in freedom



Solomon's Mission

Solomon's mission
Shows the way
Carried by masons
One stone a day

Leading mankind
Into its own body
The flame entwined
Let the spirit see

In degrees three
The light opens
A mind to study
A road to eleven

Start with a question
Surrender the answer
There is no real reason
In becoming better

Solomon's mission
Knows the way
Carried in passion
One stone a day


The Seer

A seer sees what’s not yet
Predicting what to avoid
Showing a life at the onset
Allowing us to fulfill the void

We remember the past
Molding it to our desires
Yet the future’s so vast
We forget as it expires

What special skills
Must I learn to see
A mission to fulfill
The end of a journey

I am no seer, for sure
Yet I often foresee
Everything I endure
In pain, in glory

What if the seer told
About the life to be had
Ah, to be so bold
Ah, to be so bad

We are Raindrops

We are raindrops
Of the same cloud
Screaming all the way
Joining our essence

We’re born in conflict
Strong and fulfilled
Broken into pieces
Falling together

As we fall, we live
Separate but together
Time, speed, increasing
Hitting our destination

Once there, our soul
Goes back to origin
Lighter, brighter, simpler
Alive, purest sense

We will come again
Different but the same
Raining as we must
Alive and well meaning
The Brethren

Thirteen we met first
Under Napoleon's beams
Scotland quenched our thirst
This wasn’t a dream

Lying around in disorder
Talking it all without logic
We were the creators
Of our world of magic

Each word we shouted
Fell on rather deaf hears
For each other we courted
And rally all to our fears

Nothing secret nor worthy
Came out of our souls
For we were quite unruly
In establishing our goals

The brethren is a society
Of fouls, not of strangers
We carry on our destinies
Until we’re all victors

The Music we Say

In the time an hour take
I heard the sound of life
The music we all make
Notes of love and strife

Some words, a melody
Noise of many thoughts
On the stone of eternity
Imprint what we’re taught

An hour without music
We’ll befriend even death
There is no other magic
Than the sound of our breath

Not all will appreciate
Such cacophony
In unison we vibrate
Makers of a sound reality

The music we say
Pray that it will last
It’s the price to pay
It will go so fast


Effacing our Street

Effacing a street’s name
Is but killing our History
We will never be the same
When loosing our own story

Just like effacing one’s name
To destroy his soul, his goal
Even a Pharaoh is to blame
In this forever pointless control

Every day, officials play God
With a town’s unique memory
Written in tears, joy and blood
Listen to their ephemeral glory

Forgetting what it was named
We remember where it lead us
We will always be blamed
For losing many wise elders

The grass will grow again
Thoughts will come back
It can never be forgotten
We’ll walk again in its track



The Bed

The bed is so comfy
It keeps on calling me
It’s all that I can see
I am so very sleepy

We mate, we dream
We cry, we scream
We go to extreme
In the bed supreme

We part with sorrow
So that we can grow
In the day’s dying glow
We return to what we know

We lie without pretense
Alive in a dream so dense
We are without defense
We loose in every sense

There is but one bed
As my ancestors said
In which you’ll play dead
In which you’ll be wed


Odd Friends

I have as my better friends
The oddest of characters
For each I would die, defend
Against all sorts of wankers

To be part of such an elite
I can’t claim any sanity
We live to the same beat
Truly devoid of your reality

To be odd, just see differently
Ignore convention and dogma
Decide that the true beauty
Lies beyond this closed vista

I question everything they say
Aware they don’t mean any of it
It’s a circular illogic game we play
Endlessly made-up as we see fit

We are odd, but we’ll be friends
When you lay cold, alone and flat
For in our mind, there is no end
To this brotherhood under one hat



Anthem Nation

Listen to your anthem
Think of those before
Feel words so solemn
They sing forevermore

Speaking of freedom
Gained on battlefield
In spring, in autumn
A destiny revealed

An author like you
Sat and thought
What would we do
If no one had fought?

Would we be free, alive
Ready to face destiny
Or simply able to survive
Under another’s glory

The struggle of a nation
Plays in the hearts of the dead
Every time you cry with passion
Those words that can’t be left unsaid



Nothing Good

Nothing good came out of being honest
A truly peculiar and surreal philosophy
Spoken in a moment truly earnest
When questioned about this reality

Nothing good came out of telling lies
On the same day, same train of thought
We accept it without questions, yet it defies
The real stories of those who need your vote

Do you know the old hypocrite’s oath?
Claiming truth to be universal, blameless
Are you aware that we must have both
To truly understand our own noblesse

So, will you think on your own terms
Or accept without a doubt that word
Are you ready to let yourself learn
What everyone else has already heard

Nothing good came out of being honest
Nothing good came out of telling lies
Why question it? Can’t you let it rest?
In doing so, you might finally rise



I Not Understand

What’s with languages?
And their constructions
Some birthed in the ages
Other as new as fashion

What’s with their constructions?
Their rules, grammar, accents
Some have their own reasons
Others are sons of events

We think, we speak, we write
We write as we pretend to speak
We think what we say is alright
In that way, as a kind, we’re unique

We spell the same word differently
Among ourselves, even ourselves
We change and mold reality
In books lost on bookshelves

I don’t understand
I do not understand
I donot understand
I not understand


Mind

My mind’s no longer mine
I lost it on the way here
It won’t make a headline
I know it’s somewhere near

It’s such a fleeting thing
Neither here nor there
Sensing it without asking
We know we are aware

I can argue my case well
With another, as an equal
Yet everything that we sell
Is rarely true or factual

As I supposedly grow wise
The certainties of my youth
For which I’d let you die
They’re no longer the truth

Why is it here, with us?
Easily confused with a drink
I suspect I am conscious
What do you think?



One Hundred Steps

Everyday, for so many years
I climbed a hundred steps alone
For the right to learn, to culture
For the right to be my own

No questions, it was the path
Between home and school
No hatred, no common wrath
They sat, facing me, the fool

Each step but a short barrier
Taken in stride, all the way
To reach the ultimate altar
The top, where all would pray

Climbing-up started our day
The same way down, closed it
A temporal ritual, an ancient ballet
Where all kids were getting fit

I miss those stones without end
That’s how it felt before the first
Just as an initiation would intend
We learned by being immersed



The Supreme Cause

Fighting our way through a life unwanted
Spent focusing on the value of a stone
Forgetting the supreme cause of the gifted
To develop a spirit we can call our own

As nations separated from religion
It’s time for faith to create its own rift
To leave dogma, regain its passion
To truly understand, it is its own gift

No matter whether you’re rich or poor
Your supreme cause is the same as mine
To develop your spirit and truly implore
Your own divinity, and stop being so blind

It is far fetched to search for it outside
When all along it was entrenched inside
Sometimes buried, often willingly denied
In some cases, even killed by pride

The supreme cause is for us to take
To make it ours, to love and cherish
It nourishes our soul, turns it awake
No matter if you follow a god or a fetish


I Fight

I fight the intolerant
Teachers who crush
The less than ignorant
The infant in a rush

I fight ignorance
In me and others
With faith, science
I test our valour

I fight the words
That kill innocents
Speaking like a bird
Often barely decent

I fight weakness
Mostly just mine
Avoiding blandness
In the thoughts I design

I fight my own battle
With no one else
It’s my cage I rattle
I fight myself



Greed & Faith

Greed so tempting
Faith so fragile
What’s winning
Isn’t it futile

Desires rule
Unchecked
Make us full
In all aspects

Faith’s a choice
Without thinking
It is the voice
That’s asking

We sway all day
One’s natural
The other, a way
We’re so fragile

Aim for balance
Or choose either
Both the essence
Of this creature

Hate

The urge to hate is strong
A river of lava in the veins
In an instant, all's wrong
Hating everything in vain

The world has changed
Taken over by pain
A joyless sun is blamed
For such a sinful stain

To hate with a passion
Rarely seen in nature
After losing all reason
The night we must endure

No one truly knows why
We suffer such a fate
Yet at the moment we die
We know it's not too late

To hate can't be divine
As such we assume
Unaware the sublime
For it, make room


Expensive

Oh, wasted life, so expensive
Costing its owner, and you
Working without reprieve
Yet so little we truly do

A second is an expense
Against life's account
Arrogance, even pretense
What do we want?

We loose a life given
Wasting time joyfully
Yet the gift's uneven
As we steal mercilessly

Life is a precarious balance
As we take, so we must give
It's almost like a romance
The middle is to forgive

A life wasted doesn't come back
We might as well invest it all
Feeling, loving, being out of whack
We might as well have a ball



Creature of Midnight

I'm creature of the night
I prowl in search of a fight
Creating an atmosphere so tight
I see you, my prey, finally in sight
Innocent victim, sleep tight
Under a moon silver and bright
Striving in the absence of light
Reflecting shadows give fright
You know not what you ignite
As you cross to the twilight
Whether wrong or right
We dance a soulless rite
Who knew that what we unite
Are an Angel, a Devil, tonight
Everything will be all right
As you know, it is midnight



Demon's Whispers

Are my thoughts all true?
Are they a demon's whispers?
The truths I know are few
Some even belong to the hour

When I calm my confused mind
Do I hear gods or angels talking?
A noisy chatter of the blind
Unaware of where I'm walking

If it sounds too good, is it truly so?
Is it disguised to make us fall?
Is this the path we must follow?
What's the answer? Is it a riddle?

Though we know how to question
The answers are most uncertain
Doubting the source and its reason
Unable to see who’s behind the curtain

What is a demon’s whisper?
When the words are so familiar
We’re not that good a reader
Often taking the truth of a liar



Universal Moral

One universal moral
Has to exist in time
A word that says it all
A thought sublime

Searching eternally
For a truthful reason
Nothing exist really
Life’s but a prison

Yet to deny reality
Is a waste of time
For we are, really
Children of I am

As of the original word
No one ever thought
To keep a record
Of what was taught

Why do such a thing
As it is universal
So it’s in your being
In the good, in the evil


Another Day

It was just another day
As the few who cared
Had simply passed away
Finally, eternally spared

Yet it’s never a simple day
For in all, all is possible
As there is but one way
To define the unreasonable

Tomorrow, today, yesterday
Three days in which we live
Two can lead you astray
One can leave you pensive

Tomorrow, will you be there?
To see the sun rise again
Or will you finally be aware
That no light shines in vain

There will be another day
For our children to see
If we come back this way
Let us remember happily

The Night

The night leaves traces
That the soul remembers
Wearing a million faces
We have to surrender

Living in an altered state
Just as real as the past day
We can take risks, tempt fate
If we only knew the way

Life we can't control
Dreams even more so
In both we play a role
In each we must grow

Initiate of the night
Remember the lessons
That you can't be right
If you're pure reason

Respect the night
As it takes you whole
Tomorrow, the light
Will give you all




In The Moment

To be in the moment
Is to miss no one, nothing
Beyond being content
Life finds its meaning

In that eternal second
You are indivisible
Passing beyond
All are equal

Wisdom is revealed
Not by words or songs
But a light unsealed
Nothing is wrong

You see it all
Life’s true sense
Truly adorable
Sincerely immense

The past, the future
Exist no longer
Nothing to endure
Nothing maters


Thank you for…

Thank you for…

The days gone by
The lives, the loves
The screams, the sighs
The bees, the doves

The young, the old
The mistakes, a few
The stories we told
The idiot, the guru

The passion, the sex
The food, the drinks
The words of an ex
The eternal sphinx

The work, the money
The truth, the doubts
Chocolate covered honey
And those darn trouts

But most of all, I have to say
Some things could not have been
Without the ultimate birthday
So thank you for my passing



Thinking It’s all Me

Thinking it’s all me
Would be arrogant
Denying, you see
A God so ancient

Thinking it’s all me
Would take you out
We wouldn’t agree
Each on his route

Thinking it’s all me
Would claim the life
Of an innocent baby
As it shies from strife

Thinking it’s all me
Would make me bitter
Of all I had not be
Oh, to have been better

Thinking it’s all me
Removes the divine
No one will be free
No one will be fine


Remember

Who will ever remember
Who fell in love, who didn’t?
Who’s worse, who’s better?
Who’s an idiot, who’s brilliant?

The memories of man are shallow
We mold them to suit our needs
We forget what we don’t want to know
We keep what we need to succeed

The same thought, the same action
Is remembered differently by all
Balancing between fact and fiction
We teach the truth on what we recall

Yet all we are has been recorded
For all to see today and forever
Our sins and all we hold sacred
Kept in a stone truly stellar

Who can read from this book
But the one who’s writing it
For we all know where to look
Inside, where the soul sits

Last Sun

Seeing the sun for the last time
Sadly aware that in the morrow
Life will finally become sublime
As we forget our fear and sorrow

It was a sun like any other day
Round, brilliant, edgeless
Always ready to give way
To the Goddess moon no less

Though this morning it was back
Unchanged, just as we remembered
We knew something wasn’t quite right
As if all questions had been answered

Yet the last day passed without doubts
Somehow everyone knew their destinies
Without a word, a cry or even a shout
We marched into the night with ease

The last sun will not be our end
No dogma can convince us of that
It will be just like an old friend
Ready to listen, ready to chat



Killing Destinies

Starting every forth century
With a renewed sense of hope
We sense the end of reality
As a knot in a mystical rope

Shattered on the battlefield
Cause we think we think better
Such hope we’d better conceal
Till it’s time for the thereafter

The thoughts of tomorrow
Bathed in faith and joy
Always find their echo
In what we can destroy

To protect our own destiny
As we fear all new ideas
We kill and shield bravely
Those with different auras

In their death life resonates
Ready to forgive the few
Who‘d leave all to their fate
Letting them be true


Forgiveness

To forgive would force me to judge
Anyone who would comes to me
I often think my way, I do not budge
A dogma made from what I see

I think I’m right rather than not
Who could argue with my logic
My truths, my beliefs are all I got
You don’t believe me, oh cynic?

I’m told forgiveness is divine
By good thinkers and well doers
For those who cross the line
Expect nothing from such actors

Here lies a fallacy in thinking
To forgive you must have judged
Doing therefore the evil’s bidding
Your reputation forever smudged

Do not question my authority
And I will not question yours
Leave me to fail beautifully
Let me not close any doors



Small Things, Big Things

It’s in the small things
That big ones are born
It’s only the beginning
Of a story well worn

We tend to make mountains
Out of so many molehills
Yet aren’t we the captains
Of our souls, our minds, our wills?

Some see the devil in details
Others see God in all splendour
Breaking free of dogmatic tales
Is the only way to become better

A small light will shatter darkness
Though it’s easy to kill it soon
The right idea will do no less
No one can ever be immune

A big thing today shrinks tomorrow
We never live in the same world twice
A small thing blows-up tomorrow
Seek both, it’s the only price



Crossroad

Am at another crossroad
Unsure of turning where
Choices are all so broad
Success, all so rare

How did I end here again?
Lost among uncertainty
It’s all confusing, all so Zen
Even not choosing is a reality

Though I can turn around
Look or walk in my past
Hoping that this time round
I’ll make choices that last

Should I turn? Go straight?
Call the Devil for advice?
After all, nothing dictates
That my mind will suffice

I’ll choose eventually
To but move forward
Waiting ever so eagerly
As the road turns inward



The Lost World

The past is all but lost
Like a world forgotten
We want at all cost
To come back often

Time goes but one way
Our mind cannot fathom
That any of the old days
Could again become

So a story is made
To remember them
And as they fade
They leave a poem

Yet but once is time
An eternal second
A timeless crime
Against reason

A second has passed
And that world is lost
It’s but life’s impasse
It’s the price, the cost












An Innocent’s Death

What makes us kill children
Without even an afterthought
Are we so lame, so broken
That we’re no longer distraught

Spare me the taint of an apology
How do we know how one feels
When a loved one is taken from thee
We will know the depth of the ordeal

Innocence cannot be learned
It’s a birth gift we all possess
No one returns to be burned
We come to show noblesse

So why kill the innocent?
What could they have done?
Showing hatred to an infant
Forces us to go on and on

Are you innocent, son of sin
Didn’t your god tell you so?
Is your patience’s wearing thin
In the light of another’s halo



Shadow On My Soul

There is a shadow on my soul
A sense of satisfied despair
Unsure of what is my role
I know what should be fair

Was I born with this defect
An ancestral affliction
Passed to sons as an object
A heritage beyond reason

I live with it as my shadow
Follows my every moves
I noticed it so long ago
I no longer of it disapprove

It is with me often for worse
Tainting any sound judgment
Some would it call it a curse
Yet it looks like a talent

There is a shadow on my soul
Yet it affects only my mind
Perfection remains whole
Free of what makes me blind



Trying Not To Hide

Trying hard not to hide anything
I hold the deepest secret of old
I know a word so soothing
It will turn lead into pure gold

You know it well, heard it before
Felt it sounded rather pleasant
Unaware that it would restore
Any soul that became absent

Know that it was never truly lost
It traveled in speech and stories
Hidden from the useless frost
Of frozen hearts and memories

You might speak it rather often
Thinking it must belong to you
It’s universal, next time listen
You might learn a thing or two

I try hard to hide absolutely nothing
Yet if I told you what that word was
You’d think that I must be kidding
You knew it before it ever was



Ripped

A heart ripped apart
Bleeding from the soul
Aware from the start
This wasn’t the goal

It began open ended
With nothing to hide
Talking as if haunted
By a joy without pride

Growing into passion
Lost in world unaware
We lived beyond reason
Letting everyone stare

I didn’t see it coming
It ended without a word
It was just a morning
Yet a sunset so absurd

My heart is eternally ripped
Nothing can replace that
One day I’ll change the script
And regain what you spat



The Moment

Take the moment seriously
So you can have fun in it
Not all that passes as reality
Is painful, or even sweet

Is the moment all there is?
Cause we seem to flow
In each second with ease
We can only but follow

In a moment life has passed
Years in a frozen second
Every action crumbled
Into one eternal sound

The moment is a gift
That stays in the present
Forever still, forever adrift
Only a God can grant

So, yes, we only have a moment
To express our love, our feelings
To regret for being absent
To forgive and be life giving



Same God

We pray to the same God
In our houses of stones
Yet others seem odd
As we judge the unknown

Their books are our books
Ancient, given from above
Different paths we took
To reach the same love

We fight each other
Over a finer point
Yet in that funeral hour
We’ll end in the same joint

Religions and philos
Rise to your teachings
Let go of your egos
Count your blessings

We will not wait for you
To evolve and mature
We’ll create without ado
A spirituality that endures



The Dream of Death

The dream of death is powerful
It decides on the fate of religions
It creates the belief we need to rule
Over others, over our passions

Faultless in his eternal progression
Inevitable from the very first start
We over thought its primal reasons
Thinking we’d never take it to heart

Yet a dream is but a dream
Never to decide our fates
An endless thought stream
Irresponsible in what it creates

Death is the ultimate door
Shared between two realities
Each thinking there is more
On the other side of the key

The dream of death will not end
Nor will it start to make sense
It matters not if we make amends
It’s all but pure nonsense



Evolved Descent

We're not monkeys
They behave better
They hold the keys
To our real nature

We think we’re evolved
Yet we lost so much
Wisdom has dissolved
In the hands of a church

Behaving like animals
We shame our cousins
Preferring not to battle
Watching over our coffins

Our words are complex
Having lost all senses
We’re so far the apex
Where it truly commences

Our evolution is descending
We know what we’re doing
The beasts will keep breathing
As we argue our undoing



A Good Day

A good day is one when I barely sin
When everything seems normal
No temptations shows within
I’ve lost the will, the desire to fall

A good day is when your smiles
Refresh my reasons for living
They’re like decorated tiles
On the wall of time never ending

A good day is when we trust all
Aware that the world we see in
We designed to rest our souls
Teaching others a life never ending

A good day is when I let God
Reach deep to the end of me
As I realise, isn’t that odd
That he is me, that we are he

A good day starts with you
When we share thoughts, ideas
There is nothing we can’t do
When we’re unprotected by dogma



The Unlake

We swim in it often
The unlake has no end
Its shores are beaten
Just like an old friend

We walk it never alone
Surrounded by soul mates
Who are ready to condone
Our deeply rooted hate

Many lives are hurt
By its unnerving waves
Relentless yet in concert
Erasing even the braves

We all have to cross it
To reach the same shore
We might even commit
To its endless rancor

If you haven’t guessed
The name of the unlake
Prepare to be a guest
As despair for you waits




Word Power

I know the words to melt you down
And others to hurt you forever deeply
I use them precisely, they're sound
That vibrates your soul unwary

Front the first, second and last
They shape your life, your destiny
Just like time, they pass so fast
Never to retain your memory

They are evil in their beauty
Unable to forgive, nor forget
They remind us of our frailty
In each of the seconds we regret

We were here before they were
We made them what they are
We forgot that it was in anger
We created words to go far

They’ll go when we remember
That we think best in images
Conveying the secret we’re after
Eternal wisdom of the ages



The Gift

Nothing, you are saying
Until you are singing
To the living, the dying
Only that has a ring

It’s your voice we crave
Your thoughts so brave
Why would you deprave
All those you can save

Speak often and loud
Make us so very proud
That you’re allowed
To know this crowd

Carry all of us far away
With sounds that sway
So that maybe, someday
We’ll know the true way

What you have is a gift
With it, any soul you’ll lift
Do not let it ever go adrift
Make us ready for the shift



Too Many

Too many words
Not enough flowers

Too many thoughts
Not enough trees

Too many discussions
Not enough horizons

Too many viewpoints
Not enough reason

Too many clowns
Not enough laughter

Too many philosophers
Not enough wisdom

Too many dancers
Not enough dancing

Too many actors
Not enough life



Ego Minister

I minister to myself
I am my biggest flock
I stand on a bookshelf
To listen to me talk

I write my own sermons
As I preach to me alone
I cast my own demons
I’m the angel who’s flown

I give my own blessings
To my every thoughts
I am the eternal being
Who no one has fought

I create my own rituals
Facing the true mirror
Eating the only apple
Unleashing my horror

I am the minister of my ego
I listen for I speak the truth
There’s no one I can follow
I’m the fountain of youth


Stop

My mind often tells me stop
And I sometimes listen to it
Thinking she’s lost the plot
That annoying little twit

I carry-on often illogically
Going so far out of reason
Even if she doesn’t agree
Let’s get out of that prison

So I live balancing between
Logic and sweet emotions
Knowing neither can ever win
They are too many options

After all, why stop when it’s fun
What dictates what I should do?
Society or experience makes me run
Yet do they really have a clue?

Thinking my mind was my own
I pass my days in the clouds
Looking down on the unknown
Of my own personal crowds



Everybody's worthy

Everybody's worthy
No exceptions
If you disagree
You have reasons

Yet you are worthy
Even if your actions
Can make you weary
They are common

Truly, what we do
Counts little finally
We have no clue
As to this reality

Yet in the moment
Simply do unto others
What to you is pleasant
We are all beggars

Everybody’s worthy
A truth hard to accept
We think so surely
We’re a better adept



In its Absence

In the absence of truth, we have humour
Here lies another eternal irony
For in humour, rests the truth’s odour
As we laughs, recognising its verity

This is not a poor substitution
It’s its essence distillated in words
With faces, sounds or actions
To laugh is the way only forward

Truths is not always present
We miss it only when it’s gone
So to survive without resentment
We crack jokes till the new dawn

It’s also hard to accept from another
So the master creates a story
Hiding reality behind a blunder
Till you accept its undeniable veracity

Having a sense of humour is a gift
Cherish it, nurture it, even share it
Do not let the righteous go adrift
Thinking it’s a sin we should omit

Descent

I had my descent into he'll
And it was good, fulfilling
I found something to sell
That was never ending

There was everyone I knew
It felt like coming home
It was finally all so true
I would never be alone

Some had been there so long
They'd forgotten everything
There, nothing was wrong
That truth was appealing

I'd still be there I believe
If not for his intervention
To belong here you must believe
As it is beyond any reason

This was a dream, not a reality
I had to face this painfully
Hell only exist in our destiny
When we imagine it faithfully


No Longer

Unable to appreciate the moment
Preferring the past, even the future
Finding no solace, becoming distant
Each second is a pain to endure

Unwilling to love, to get angry
Afraid to hurt, scared of being so
Yet enjoying the fragile reality
That in being alone, you can grow

Unafraid of staying forever silent
Letting my opinions disintegrate
Living life with no one's agreement
Finding joy without entering the gate

Unsoiled by another's frailty
I see mine without judgment
Praising the same reality
That made me so reluctant

No longer the fruit of another tree
I create my own forest sublime
Eliminating the moment to be free
Living all seconds at the same time


Self-righteous

How wonderful it is
To be on truth's side
Life comes with ease
With 'nothing' to hide

How many self-righteous
Have sinned and hidden
Some are even famous
In their role God given

Convinced without doubt
In the truth of their words
Their thoughts they tout
Covering others in turds

The self-righteous denies
Our right to think freely
Seeing dissent as unwise
Theirs is the only reality

None of us should judge
One with a different opinion
We should focus that urge
On knowing our mansion



Life's Though

Oh little one, so pure, so brave
To prepare you for life's challenge
We should deny you the love you crave
Yet we must give it, we can't change

Life is though you see, even scary
You'll face dangers of all kinds
A friend will turn in an enemy
Others will pretend, rob you blind

Not even death should scare you
As you learn life's endless mysteries
Wisdom written in everything you do
Stamped in nature for all eternity

Listen to the wind speak his mind
Let the fire burn your passions
Rest on the earth, let your soul unwind
Drink from its source beyond reason

Trust others but don't be fooled
Listen much and speak often
Obey sometimes, never be ruled
See God everywhere, have fun



A Sign

Whether waiting for a sign
Or deciding your fate
The two forever divine
Life you can never negate

A sign means nothing
If you’re not ready to see
That life’s only meaning
Is to give your all freely

What is written in the stars
Is drawn from your blood
You’d be going very far
If you knew what you’ve got

Signs are everywhere
Waiting for interpretation
You just need to be aware
Of being in this union

Listen to the sound eternal
Watch the light so bright
Touch a life so fragile
Smell your birthright

Signs develop subtly
From dawn to sunset
Some clear, others blurry
Watch, never forget



Absence

Death doesn't exist says the mystic
Yet we feel the pain of absence
Every second so much more realistic
How can we be without that essence?

As long as we live on this side
We'll know the power of distress
Here, there is so much to hide
Everyday we feel a little less

Love in your absence goes away
Cruelly, little by little, day by day
Nothing we do can make it stay
Yet, somehow, we’ll be ok

We’ll remember joy and pain
Aware that we were in love
That feeling we can’t explain
Will disappear here and above

It is true, love cannot exist
Yet we claim it to be eternal
Only the pain will persist
As your absence is final



Senseless words

Sitting all afternoon
Talking about nothing
Doing it again soon
This is true living

Senseless banter
With no purpose
But to enjoy an hour
Without any fuss

Wasted away today
Gone tomorrow
No creation, no decay
No joy, no sorrow

Speaking endlessly
With no other reason
To enjoy effortlessly
Each other’s passion

Senseless words
Mean nothing
Yet we’re wizards
Of never ending


No Certainty

There is no certainty
For sure, not even death
As we are, but truly
Sons of our faiths

Yet we speak surely
As we know it all
Giving ever so freely
What we can’t recall

Tomorrow will come
Even we’re not here
Yet we can’t fathom
It actually disappears

We’re certain we’re right
We own the right thinking
So we argue, start to fight
Finding solace in forgiving

There is no certainty
Though we claim to differ
We think ever so passively
Choosing another’s answer


For the first time

For the first time
I wouldn't miss this
The endless grime
The eternal beauty

Magic in everything
In pain and sorrow
Doing the right thing
Standing in a shadow

Being awed always
Jaded beyond repair
Setting a heart ablaze
Freezing in despair

In each first time
We know reality
Feeling the sublime
Even in the nasty

Everything’s a first
Nothing’s repeated
Keep your thirst
It can’t be defeated



A Son

A son’s always born noble
No matter his ancestry
Need not to prove he’s able
To anyone but he

Live not through your son
It is not his destiny
Achieve your own union
Claim your destiny

Let him develop at will
Create and destroy
Though you can instill
The will to learn, to joy

Guide, never direct
Show the end, not how
Let him stand erect
And experience his now

A son reports to none
But his soul ever perfect
Just as you had done
So give him respect


To Be Loved

To let yourself be loved is hard
It's easier to love without rewards
For to accept another's regard
You must let down your guard

You must let the other see you
As you are, without being uneasy
Your faults will be in plain view
Yet you'll be followed blindly

Of another's love, you are worthy
It doesn't matter who you are
It is one of life's greatest mystery
Someone sees your star

You might be seeking such road
Or following a preset destiny
Along the way, life will explode
Taking you away from reality

To be loved is a gift eternal
Yet so few of us can accept it
For it's a fire so harsh, so final
No one knows if we are fit


Wait No Longer

Wait no longer, choose your path
Select the role you want to play
Stomp on the forbidden grass
Ignore those who decide your way

There is nothing you need to wait for
It's already all in your heart, your soul
Needing to just let it come to the fore
Do not fight what makes you whole

The more you wait, the harder life is
As you do what you weren't meant for
Your suffering comes with relative ease
As you forget the child you were before

Waiting serves no one, it's for the weak
Time never comes back, it moves on
Should you choose to be unique
Regrets and fear will all be gone

Wait no longer, claim your heritage
For everyone that made a mark
Is your ancestor in this voyage
It is now time for you to embark


Life's Crime

A life not lived is a crime
Against all who've fought
To make it ever so sublime
By the same simple thought

Aware every single second
To live, you must be alive
Always able to respond
To never stop, never arrive

Making a mistake is a present
Given to a perfect yet restless soul
To grow, declare your talent
To a lost world without a role

Claim this birthright so ancient
That no one knows its origin
Why do seek the coiled serpent?
Couldn't we live the earth virgin?

We are who we are because we can
A life not lived is a sad testament
To a creator who made us free-men
So we could become brilliant


Lost Friends

We loose friends from time to time
We don't know where we've put them
One second, we're playing till past nine
The next, we can't remember their name

It was a joy to know them, sadness to not
We might meet again along a different path
Exchange memories of the battle we fought
Then move on, enter our own impasse

For those moment we shared, I cry alone
I knew not then what they were, what they are
They are my life condensed to the bone
It was I, it was they, life's so bizarre

Everyday was an experience, a test
Decisions taken with little thoughts
We were alive, no time to rest
Running across time's empty lots

We were friends, we'll stay that way
Time is nothing in this equation
We talked then, we have more to say
Friendship is eternal, always in motion

We Know

We know it all, so we think
At an early age it seems
As life passes in a blink
We loose that insipid dream

Mankind aims to be better
Yet looses what it once knew
At the whims of a pope, a Caesar
We forget what once was true

To know that we know nothing
Is pop psychology at its best
We know a little something
On that we build the rest

Strangely, knowledge is immutable
What was once known, still exists
It needs to be found by the able
Those capable of following the twists

So what you know is just that
You may seek more at all times
Stay ignorant, it's your right
Do not complain at nighttime


Bruises & Scars

Bruises worn with pride
Scars, badges of pain
There's no point to hide
It doesn't always rain

Each a proof you're alive
Ready to fight, to act
Against odds, you thrive
Always in full contact

Taking risk in your hands
A choice to never be bland
At home, in different lands
At least once, to be grand

Some will fade, others eternal
A right of passage for the brave
Each impact your seeking soul
They'll join you in the grave

Marking the episodes
Of a day full, beautiful
This is your code
A need to rule

Many Paths

Many paths lead to the same end
As many Gods will give you advice
Some even promising you'll ascend
Into heaven, if you pay the price

Many paths bring me to you
No matter how lost I am
There is nothing I can do
We're pawns in this scam

Many paths take me away
Tempted by every crossroads
It's like an indecent foreplay
As I listen to the devil's code

Many paths lead to nowhere
Existing in my mind only
To be Frank, it's not fair
It's not even my name, really

Many paths are but circles
Leading back to their start
It's like an endless cycle
As we're never far apart



A Sinner's Joy

Can a sinner experience joy?
At least for a moment it seems
The pleasure of the flesh destroy
Every fantasy, even all our dreams

Yet to sin is forever tempting
We were designed to succumb
To a life forever ending
In the pleasure of the tomb

We reveal ourselves in sin
Our hidden thoughts arise
The without is the within
We are one in disguise

The righteous will claim foul
To the idea that we could enjoy
What comes from our bowels
Where pleasure is but a toy

Yet a sinner's joy is in the mind
A star storm triggers ecstasy
And if you are so ever inclined
Join us in our sinful humanity



A Song in the Morning

A song in the morning
I pray, I beg of you
A few words that ring
As the day becomes anew

A rhythm, a note, a voice
It's all it takes to be free
After that, it's all a choice
Though it's time to boogie

As you sing, life disappears
Your pains are left behind
They might even reappear
But not before you unwind

So sing till you can no more
Then sing one last song
Till you finally find the cure
To all that's gone wrong

Life is but a melody
We, the singers
A musical reality
Born in laughter


Don't

Don't leave me alone
I might not like myself
I'm stranger of my own
With no sense of self

This is not a testament
To an insane dependence
It's just when you're absent
I can feel your presence

I can stand on my own
I've been there before
But now that I've known
I simply want more

It's with you that I'm alive
That I feel for tomorrow
That I push, that I strive
To be your true hero

Two souls, one purpose
Entangled eternally
In the dance of the rose
Oblivious to finality



A Thousand Windows

A thousand windows
In a thousand worlds
Who on earth knows
What had been hurled

Through each, a face
All of us as one, peaking
At the future of our race
Claiming foul, blaming

An unbalanced word
Closes just another
Now, looking inward
Cursing that hour

While its opposite
Brings about a smile
Pushes the limit
But just for a while

A thousands windows
Must stay open always
So that everyone knows
We are life set ablaze


Swept With Violence

Swept with violence
My mind fights back
Searching a balance
That none can attack

Peacefulness is a myth
For we strive in extreme
What evil lies beneath
This potent insane dream

Blessed with a choice
We define who we are
We cry, even rejoice
Just a star with a scar

Searching for harmony
As we fall among ideas
Each true to his own story
Lost into an eternal drama

I’m swept with violence
In every thought, action
Burning with brilliance
I have no reason


Behind a Smile

What's behind a smile
A pain immeasurable
We have joy for a while
In this world so unstable

It’s a mask to avoid pity
As we prefer to be alone
When it comes to our reality
We know what we’ve sown

But to you, I say safely
I’m happy, even elated
You smile, you agree
We’re not yet defeated

Everyday, we balance
Between love and hate
Giving a voice to silence
Giving orders to fate

Behind a smile, I’m alive
Burning in a hellish paradise
I’ll do anything to survive
Knowing that I pay the price


As Shadows Cast

As shadows cast their wisdom
Unto this unforgiving light
The flowers mature, blossom
Ready to make everything right

In this world of light and night
Our shadows are reminders
That to achieve eternal delight
We need not to find an answer

We are light, we are darkness
We are not good, we are not bad
We choose our own weakness
We can be happy or truly sad

The shadows do not speak
Yet they mark a certain path
They are part of our mystique
Giving us a darker advice

If we stand under the sun
Apart for one another
Our shadows just run
To connect with its brothers



Out of Nothing, Into Nothing

Out of nothing, into nothing
There is hope in this message
For it is there that we’ll be asking
Is this wisdom or a presage?

Out of nothing we come
As if we could know
It’s the key to a kingdom
That a few souls foresaw

Into nothing we go
A rather empty promise
For a better morrow
Full of joy and bliss

Yet between the two
Stand a now eternal
Where nothing is due
To be carnal, spiritual

We come from a place
That we’ll return into
Choose evil or grace
For both are so true



Forever Lost

A fleeting idea passing through
Unrecorded and so, lost forever
There is nothing you can do
It wasn’t its time to make us better

All ideas are funny that way
Claiming dominion on their time
Only when we’re ready to play
Waiting till then for the right clime

Even stranger, you can save it
Publish it, tell everyone, scream it
No mind will register nor benefit
For the time it came didn’t fit

Since the beginning of time
Ideas have been expressed
Some are still in their prime
Others, have been put to rest

For those we were not ready for
They wait for us all to mature
Then they’ll be brought to the fore
Through a poem in itself so pure




No One's Coming

No one's coming to rescue you
It's up to you to find your way
To let your soul die anew
Even let your mind go astray

Are you lost on the right path?
Or going fast on the wrong road
Did you start it out of wrath?
Or fell into what you’d sowed

Seek not another’s views
You followed a different river
Both of you will be confused
You own your own answer

Search or wait if you must
Do not lose sight of reality
There’s no one you can trust
To take care of your destiny

Everything is a choice
Even the state you’re in
Even if it’s bad, rejoice
For no one is coming


Too Long

You’ve waited too long
Afraid to be so wrong
She will never know
That you loved her so

Is this the love you want?
Unclaimed, to forever haunt
Your tortured soul, sadly
Who needs such a reality?

It is much better to fail
Than to hide behind a veil
Of excuses and reasons
Every single one a treason

Be bold and claim your due
To your heart, just be true
It is your birthright to love
A gift from the Gods above

Time matters very little
Go forth, propose, hustle
Tell her your dreams
Let her your heart redeem



Oh, Pompeii

Oh, Pompeii, my love buried
You’ll know not my pain
Why do I alone bleed?
As you died under the rain

Oh, your street bleached by the sun
Will never see the light of day
As that God will take another run
You’ll freeze in eternal dismay

Oh, do I long to see you again
Why did I leave to cross the bay?
I was truly happy, especially then
For I knew I’d be back your way

Oh, to be wrong without forgiveness
A punishment stronger that hate
My lame words, I can only confess
Describe my haste to join your fate

Oh, Pompeii, so imperfect
You were the right bride
I’ll be your eternal subject
A wanderer without pride




Needed To Learn

What I needed to learn, no one taught me
I bit the hell out of books and tested it all
Daily, I wrote each page of my destiny
Nothing I truly believe in can make me fall

Some taught me what I didn't need to learn
Others, strangers it seems, did the opposite
Few showed me the wonderful world I could earn
If to their self-righteous will, I could only submit

Yet in everyone I met, wisdom was imparted
Often against my will, but always to my benefit
I can only wish, with all the words I chanted
Some touched you and felt truly sweet

As you learn constantly without prejudice
You can fail and move on without a scratch
Finally aware of the true meaning of peace
You find life fascinating, finally abl



Who is transforming who?

In light, in spirit, who is transforming who?
Holly books bathed in ink, in tears, teach us to believe
Is this your path? Is this what you want to achieve?
Or are you deceived or manipulating too?

Since the beginning of time and words
We balance between faith and knowledge
Aware of the cross, the snake, the swords
Always advancing, always on the edge

As life sunsets, shadows retire
For our wisdoms progress, aspire
Even when your light flickers, whither
You know, everyone dies, all philosophers

Ask: Who am I to give you advice?
For my life unspoken could be your shadow
So run, move on, throw the dice
As I do, before it is you who sucks my marrow

I still have no claim to sanity nor folly
For in myself the truth lies, all Godly, all Christ
I just don't know which is the truth, which is holy
But I live open, all loving, all spiced

I can change myself if I listen to an inner light
I can't change you, nor should I do
For such wisdom starts all fights
And in the end, who is transforming who?






To the man without faith

To the man without faith
I say to thee
Keep on living, keep on leaving
For your own is in simplicity

Faith is mostly born in passion
For life, for love, for others
While most can keep your attention
Few will make you take orders

Orders require a heart with a mission
Whether in the night or in the sun
Few of us carry such intention
For we live like if the day hadn't begun

Are you immortal in faith?
Or simply faithfully mortal?
Keep the questions under your breath
Who knows, they might just take you to the portal

To the man without faith, I say to thee
Stay you way, keep your course
No one can tell what is privy
Unless you're ready for the discourse






The Rose and The Blood

From the beginning we knew not
That our destiny lies hidden
In a Rose without a thought
Born in blood and linen

Had we known, we would trust
That two half stars
Will touch each in a thrust
Showing that none is far

We so want to be close
But many barriers we erect
For the life that has me clothe
Make me believe in no defect

We sin with every breath
Without thinking or malice
For whom we are in depth
Is but the result of a chalice




Of Stars and Eagles

We all sleep under stars abound
And yet few ever see the eagle
A fresh mind receive all light around
Without thinking of the horrible

For detractors fear the bright
Yet explain it in terms unknown
Foolish we are to think tight
Yet to limits we are drawn

The soul will never be satisfied
To know few stars and one eagle
We desire a life electrified
Always joyful, never feeble

I will pass on, I will move up
But never those stars will see again
As for the eagle, without refrain
I tell you farewell, never give-up





Mini Ode to Stupidity

The storm brews its own filth
So few of us truly know why
And yet all involved in the pain with
That we can't help but cry

With words so violent
That each express sadness
And tempers no longer silent
Brings us all to madness

Can I question this reality?
Or into my life do I let it set
Even if it makes obvious my frailty
Cause on others I have to bet

I claim knowledge and wisdom to survive
And yet in this stupidity I get involved
So much so that both no longer strive
Forcing my soul, unfinished, to dissolve




Love and Life are the same mysteries

I spent my life looking for love
And only found live repeated
Within the few years before the above
I've never felt defeated

In this search, I do not claim sanity
As in life no one has
If we did, we would see clarity
As life and love always was

I aim to live and love in one time
Not making difference of the two
For what I aim is the life prime
Screaming and thinking of you

I shall live and leave until I die
Cause to find a mystery
You need to keep an open eye
Unless you prefer misery

I might never find what I seek
And no matter, the search is fun
A fun not for the meek
For to succeed, always run







Lost in Life

Loosing oneself in life is not for all
You need to think, love and dream
But without it, you can't know all
For loosing oneself in life is a stream

You start in life young, unaware,
You walk a path ever shifting
Often you see joy or even despair
But at no time should you loose the ring

As you age, challenges abound
But all you need is trust
Trust in you, in life unbound
As everyday would be discussed

Your future never was written
For if it was you would be gone
It's up to you, by it to be smitten
For you need to be lost in life, to be done




Try

A word of hope, taken for granted
Try. Take a feeling that we can
When yet to be enemies, hated
Turn you into derision, a Pan

In one word, learning our potential
Better than a whish, opening a mind
Coupled with commitment, brutal
Serves without making us blind

All start in crystal beginning
Without shame, nor with fear
Trying great rather than dying
To the test they hold clear

Should I choose a life destined?
Aiming to listen to all but I?
Or with thinking, life pristine
Giving my all, in all, always try



I read

I read a lot, to learn all
Out of which come questions
So plentiful, I often fall
But they do keep my attention

In learning all, joy come forth
Never alone, always with sorrow
It is however my worth
That I push to tomorrow

For in the delays, I learn some more
Finding solace in the minute
Is not what I seek, what I adore
I need the future to be astute

So I live to the fullest
Either in rest, or at a Ball
I have no fear, no hate, no haste
As I learn all, question all





Friendship of a thousand flowers

Once, flowers would rule the world
they talked, dance and stood pretty
Their role, for all eyes would unfold
Without speaking they showed their destiny

Some were blue, out choice of passion
Others were red, without any sense
The yellows shined without definition
And the rest were simply in colour, dense

For all their lives, one reason stood
Needing nothing, just the sun, the earth, survive
And their passion, without being understood
Required them to talk, to befriend, to be alive

I've met many along the years, as a doer
Never seeing what I was missing
Was the friendship of a thousand flowers
Unfaded, undestined, always kissing





Cosmic Spring

Cosmic spring comes into fashion
Once a year without fault or notion
That it is here, present, alive
A pre-condition for us to survive

Springs never comes in silence
It explodes and overtake your sense
Its beauty resides in the light understated
For who are we to claim that it can be rated?

I hope to live many such springs
When my life, my soul, rings
And one day when the cosmic calls
I hope to remember not to fall

A spring is magical, caustic
For it reminds us the last antic
Calling us to the forefront of our lives
Telling us to go forth, to strive




Changing into Gold

Of the few years we've left with, once born
Very few will deserve to be lived in pity
Don't ever grow as you're told, never mourn
Sometimes you'll feel alone but never lonely

At the beginning of time, seeking the stone
You faced doubt, joy, both linked, always
Today, to date, you've changed, a life to hone
Cause you'll discuss, argue and live in days

There has never been a time better, stronger
When once faces destiny, palms upward for ever
How to take it, no one can gather, you're older
And time who heals will never remember

Your award lies in your course, your path
For all five-roses blooms, express and pass
With few eyes ever contemplating, ever seeing
That you have changed, evolved, gold turning




Chained Potential

Of all the people on earth, far and near
Few realise their depth, their potential
The reason? From lack to fear
Abound when you ignore the dial

We're all born with many destinies
That we choose to ignore and follow
All are good, but among the manies
Choose those that lead to joy or sorrow

The question that you need to ask
If you believe yourself unworthy
Is as simple as the end of the task
Will you go there or be whinny?

There is no two ways about it
It's though, it's rough, it's you
Whether you live, die or ignore it
Either way, your potential is in you




Another's eyes

If you see your future in an another's eyes
You see life, you see your soul, often questioned
Another is always the centre of your tears, your cries
But without them, life remains unlived, undestined

Even though we don't know each other yet
And age tears into the fabric of our worlds
Your eyes says that you should feel, bet
That another's eyes is friendship bold

Your life is ahead, your past behind, forever
What you've written can make you, break you
But as you move forward, in hope of the better
There is nothing to stop you, to frame you

See your life in stride, explore your heart
Cause few of the friends you cross along the path
Will know you, will love you, and all will part
In the end, strong you'll stand, without wrath




You lead me, light

You lead me, you fill me, light
In Christ, the path you show before me
Without fear, hate, pretense, fight
I fulfill every dream, every destiny

I refuse to believe in hate, in tears
Their value has no defense, no role
For me, for all, life will not disappear
Unless we forget the light, the pole

I've waited forever to defend my life
To eternity's relentless dismissal
That we don't matter, whether husband or wife
For we are, in colour, in beauty, eternal

In light, can you see the truth?
Pretending, ignoring, forgiving
For I tell you, I beg you, youth
Your life thought in vain, yet never ending



Ordinary Angel

Ordinary Angel, you live a life
Of tortured joy, of joyful pain
You see daylight not as a wife
But as a maiden without an aim

You claim ignorance of destiny
Clinching in your heart, how awful
Be aware, don't you know you're not ordinary
For in God your are made, you are full

In the morning of your days
You cried, we all did, a first breath
Your soul finally uncovered, finally ablaze
Your destiny showing its depth

But today you go about, you walk
Thinking how bizarre, how odd
That all go towards a destiny, all talk
As you remain silent, without a nod

Ordinary Angel, your mind a fool
Shows you a life that is not yours
Remove one word, change the school
For an Angel you are, never poor





Life

Life is not a school, there are no classrooms
But it's the best teacher I've ever had
Listen, the wind tells you to bloom
Look, the sea eternal shows you not to be sad

Each encounter teaches something about you
Even if you don't see it, absorb it, or make it yours
Few days pass with such learning, too much ado
We take for granted tomorrow's doors

I've met many, and yet few have mattered
Not of their choice, blame the uncontrolled ego
Had I given attention, keep a mind unbothered
More would have I learned, less would I forego

The world is coming to end, everyday
Without tears, passion or hate, time controls
Our life, visions, emotions, it is payday
Should you have paid attention? Played many roles?

I don’t know about you, nor would you about me
But the universe in us is questioning, agreeing
That we’re here to change it, to make it free
Isn’t that worth living? Isn’t that worth dying?





The Meaning of Life

Going into my past, I saw myself contemplating the moon
As I made my way back, I saw someone saving brothers
No doubt, in two images, life showed me her tune
It's meaning is in me as long as I love all others

There is no place for fate, for doubt or regret
When all you think about is if your place in time
Brings about love, change, passion, respect
If this is your truth, then turn and say 'I am'

Life has a meaning, of that we are sure
For all alternatives, are just not appealing
But what is it? What do we have to endure?
To know such truth, to know such glowing

I know mine with certainty, I've seen it, am living it
That meaning that keeps me up, shows me daylight
In every step, every thought, I open my eyes and say 'that's it'
It's a meaning for all to share, one too easy, one so bright

You see, your life in all others belong, that's the epiphany
In an orchard it came to me, stopped me, blinded me
I swirled and changed, looking at all, for all to see
That's the meaning of life, your life, in all simplicity




Black Parade

Of any sight, any single scenery
Seeing the black parade in all its glory
Has to be the single point, the single memory
Where all beliefs stops, all doubt vanishes, finally

Each procession transports hope and despair
Of time passing by in all justice
Just as blind, balanced, and ultimately unfair
For you are a child, still believing in the fleece

Through the eyes of our youth, that black parade
Seems slow, heavy, literally unworldly
How can someone you love lay dead?
Since in the morning you were both bubbly?

How to understand the loss? The sorrow?
You are a child, what you know lies ahead
In this sunset your life still leads to tomorrow
Not in today, and never in that black parade





A Stranger’s Smile

We react more to a stranger's smile
Than to those from whom we love
A reality, a truth, you've known for a while
Beyond your control, beyond the dove

Strangers offer comfort away from time
They offer split-joy in that second
And fade, join oblivion, leaving but a dime
Of untamed desire, of unanswered questions

They see you mainly as you see them
Just passing, diving, ignoring your reality
And yet thinking your thoughts, your love, your blame
And at the threshold, they fall without a worry

In the wisdom of old, in ancient thought
Strangers are like shadows on that cave's wall
They are you, moving forth, ignoring the naught
In fact there is no one else, no one at all





That old barrack

That old barrack sitting on the hill
Has seen roaring battles and life in glory
Covered in light, darkness, human will
It sits unashamed of its past beauty

What has it seen that can't be spoken?
Or known by mere mortals? mere men?
The tribulations of squares and circles unwritten?
Or the daily life, ordinary, without mayhem?

It is unclear as its walls remain silent
And the memories all but contradict
A story that is better left to the indifferent
Who see it day in, day out, mainly ignoring it

That old barrack sitting on the hill
Is in our lives, is our lives, is us
Never repenting, never lying, somehow tranquil
Blessed and cursed, as we are thus








Gender War

There is a war at hand that no one should win
It's been with us in all seconds, under our breath
Based on differences of opinions, mainly from within
We're all part of it, cheering, fearing, till we part death

It's the disconnect that attracts us, keeps us alive
Of the many dreams today, none is truly stronger
Than the search of a companion to live, to thrive
Walk alone, yes, we can. We just don't know the error

Since the garden, with one language for thought or desire
We've changed, lost our ways and found another
We're still searching for a soul before we pass, retire
For beauty in all nature is mainly in the other

I'll never know your truth, how could I seek it?
Like an unknown Grail, it stands before me
My sunset eyes searching from universe to whit
Is it you? Is it me? Always at war? Always we?





Part Devil, Part Angel

I live as an angel, as a devil, without hate
And yet, I have no reason to doubt that I'm either
Some know it's fate, some know it's faith
But to know, you need to weather

We're born to be innocent at all ages
But in us resides a double meaning
That makes us act, mostly in stages
Sometime winning, sometime loosing

Admire those with certainty in their heart
For they know the unknowable without
Search their path, explore their thought, fast
As life gives you all, often with a touch of doubt

At the gate, certainty will arise
Not because but in spite of you
Based on your love and how you despise
The other, for they are in you too





Everyone a Philosopher

Destiny forces us to become wise with age, no less
A stream yet at odd with universal law, with nature
For isn't wisdom universal, timeless?
If that we knew, we'd be one, able to endure

The world shows us its way, from east to west
Deciding, if we let it, our fate, our future, all
Never asking, never doubting, never at rest
Dragging us forward, against Will, till we fall

Few know that truth, of day and night,
Rest in the knowledge circle, to the point
And yet such truth resides in books, bright
Available to all, always open, never disappoint

Wisdom is a wheel, turning in eternity
Forced by timeless eon, sparking activity
Recognised once past, never before, pity
For should we see it coming, evolved we'd be




Better Star
Who is born under a better star?
The other it seems, without fault
But your claim, your star, is far
Days are better than you were taught

Choosing rather than letting heaven
Decide for you, whether high and low
That your path goes left, right, uneven
Take the road on high, and never bow

Life is green, no matter which field you run in
Your call deepened in your mind, in your state
And in the relative absence of within
Your decision stands alone, always on test

We're told not to question the above
Never test, never judge, for it is returned
Your wish dies, your soul melts, in that stove
And questioning, at which point the wrong turned

A better star calls for your dream
To be stated, defined and boasted
For should you not select your stream
That star will remain alone, bright, unphased






Age and Time

In delusion, we keep Age and Time connected
Lead by the silence of a deserted mine
For the one who owns his thought, all life is united
In the struggle to aim, reach for the sublime

In age, we advance with steps enchanted
For the future remains fore, forever
A mystery, by the Gods, was granted
Which we swear never to sever

In time we promise to deliver
A remembered life, proud in insight
For the future, like our past, a river
Brings forth the best, the light

Few are true to the day of their birth
Glowing in awe through loved eyes
When at the door we enter the earth
Living behind all but some cries

In Age and Time, most regret
That the two are true friends
Showing us that we matter yet
Only if, of our sins we cleanse





The Mirror

Near where I stand, stands a mirror
Reflecting someone I once knew
We were friend, living in honour
Till sin took us away in its brew

Our eyes in tear cross each other
Wondering who is wrong, who betrayed
The child full of life, knowing better
But we are he, shameful and dismayed

Reflect on a mirror, see you soul exposed
Few actions in life can be so revealing
Even a friend can only offer a view, imposed
The mirror wins, cold, bright, frightening

Our eyes have stopped, glaring back
They are the same, looking, deepening
Overshadowing the other, no one fights back
For no one wins when you're mirroring





Admiration

Admire the one with a relentless desire
To explore, live and forget that tomorrow
Will come discreetly, to those who admire
One who will never another's life borrow

Admiration placed, misplaced, often engenders
A flat world where none are the wiser
Keeping souls and minds enticed to wonder
Why others can't see what they admire

In turn, to those not under that spell, I pray
That logic and questions rule your day
For if it wasn't in the search that you seek
You'll be lost, undesired and best among the meek

Admire flowers, trees, family and friends
Without being lost in certainty, without question
You'll wear the future in pride till it ends
As it never does, you'll rule your dominion




The Rose to the Bee

The Bee and the Rose debated life
In a spring sun, bright yet hallow white
A discussion strange, heated, possibly rife
Where each viewed nature in its own rite

I fly all day scenting, searching for you
And here you stand with your mother
Pretty in armour, but what do you do?
Your role is to serve me, to make me better

You are right, I stand in family, holding five petals
Holding secrets of old, hidden thought, lost in time
Secrets that life's worthy seeks, secrets of metals
Heed them, to transform you, to make you sublime

I see, the work I do while you bend in the wind
Serves a purpose greater that our lives combined
A secret of procreation where each intertwined
Are defined as individuals, yet free, yet kind

Holly Bee, Light you see when in such talk you enter
And I see yours with each First word pronounced
Our lives are separate, gendered yet, in centre
Both great, both humbled, both announced





Promise

Promise yourself that you'll live
A time worthy of your descendants
Showing colours, standing attractive
To you, to fate, without being absent

Promise you'll be true to your soul
Listening, talking, yet often ignoring
Knowledge that will make you whole
From morning to the scarlet evening

Promise yourself a future to remember
Designed in my arms, oh happy dreams
You're eyes wide opened, thinking forever
Breathing, touching, holding your screams

Promise you'll pass on wisdom and hope
Surrender to laughter and admiration
To the new soul, in dream you thought
Now sitting in your arms, now your bastion




God, Family, Friends

We all fall into a trilogy, of angles, of Lis
Centered in God, Family, Friend
No flower, no triangle, expresses this
Better than what we can't defend

A triangle without end, strongest in universe
Each angle, repeating itself, ever forming in three
All human emotions, in a simple verse
Leading to our end, shameless, unique but free

White Lis with petals of colour sweet
Intrigued, seeing us wondering, no! Regretting
That no life, short or long, ends without wit
As a heart strives when it smiles, when laughing

We ponder life's meaning without thinking
Where angles, petals define each step, each second
First among the bests, without ever yielding
A trilogy well defined defines us, makes us strong



Old Stones

Old stones contain the life of all
Sitting on each other's top, a family tree
Of dissents, arguments, love and recall
Deep in tradition, focused on destiny

Each stone a corner, six faces opinion
A voice like thunder, piercing by swords
Breaking the silence of time, without definition
But one given by each stone, given in hordes

Olds in earth facing up, young in clouds
Each a force in the dynasty, an individual
Yet meek, weak like no other, but proud
Chasing a dream, always in reach, tall

Ancient principles form the foundation
Of a story disappearing in each birth
Replaced by new stories, a new opinion
A library in stones, young to old, made of earth



Tree Divinity

Trees are divine, in their own rights
Living, procreating, turning a leaf
Editing out the pain of our fights
Against ourselves, minds still stiff

A tree’s wisdom equals each root
Silly, we trample with each step
Unaware that under each foot
Stands wisdom beyond us yet

As the tree bends in the talkative wind
It listens and learns, argues and convinces
His brothers, his sisters, for all to find
That soundless truth, our sins rinses

I roam the forest among divine trees
Thinking how great we are to realise
That without majesty, without breeze
We're but imagining that this is paradise




You Are

We met around a feast, tabled, in people
Focused on each other, life at its best
We talked much, we were able
Listening sometimes, ready to test

We exchanged dreams, refocused a thought
Prayed that the night stayed with us yet
But the moon, another lost scene, well fought
Gave birth to light, we felt we needed rest

Remembering a smile, a scent, and spark
That you brought, that your voice gave
When far in country, when light grew dark
You let me talk, express, often forgave

Keeping your fight in your heart
You show others how to be bright
Without thinking that your Art
Is what defines you, give you sight

Claiming ignorance whether real or not
I wasn't there when life gave you turn
But remember, that heart of yours in knot
You are loved, desired, you always burn



Standing Soul

Very few souls know their Time
For to be so, listen-in you ought
But for you, a struggling mind sublime
Showed the rest a battle to be fought

In nineteen starry earth revolutions
You discovered a world not to regret
But how can you? When the notion
To be whole, to be old, resisted the test

Forgive our limits in knowing true
For such test, we never knew
We listened to a heart deep blue
Reframed impressions steadily grew

You killed time, painted a coloured notion
That all are divine, for all have that option
To express fear, youth, possible intention
Without claiming sanity, free in admiration

Fighting impressions, the breath had talked
Of knowledge tainted, did we judge really?
Realise that at leaving, before all walked
We thanked a standing soul, for eternity



Of Graceful Time

When a name states a state
You appear all Angelique, all true
In force and strength, a fate
You chose, nothing can subdue

Beauty in deep reaches far
A voice strong and sweet
Manners of a knight, a star
Strength of a dame, asking wit

What do you seek in such quest?
A friend, a soul, a mirror of you?
Don't you know that you test
All that pass, all that are close too?

Be still, reflect on your life timeless
Never seek, never stop, remain in you
For never alone you can be, unless
You chose grace over time, over you




A Sister in thousands

Born in our hearts, never to you
Carried to terms, without sun, forever
It's not fair, not right, what did you do?
Love was not the issue, life was over

You lived in thoughts, a soul of many starts
And ever since you came without a name
I've been searching for you in a thousand hearts
Asking questions, finding no one to blame

Seeing your eyes in everyone's colour
Your voice reaches me in all but one tongue
You walk pass in another's odour
Your soul connects to all, like a song

You're my sister, and yet I pass alone
If one lives in others, memories carrying on
Then you are still here, smiling, anger prone
Close to each other, an angel, never down

We meet again and again, Star bound
Finding similitude in discussion
That we never had, till you I've found
In a separate heart, left without reason



Trusted Time

Looking back to our people of old
Our sense deepens, a need for home
Love unquestioned, always bold
Between ages, written in tome

A library of emotions, of stories
Passes on with each crossed threshold
Few daring to realise that worries
Yet to one another in life we hold

Eternity lives on, in passed-on eyes
Thought remain forever in that book
By all thoughts, all dreams, ever wise
A question forever silenced, in one look

We knew them in trusted time
Both older, seen by a child
Who's heart stood still, sublime
Each time they spoke, with each smile



Crowded Orchard

Walking among apples, pears and others
One can never be lonely, not slightly so
Unless by choice, to punish, why bother
Realise you're one in many, and grow

In the crowd with time rises an epiphany
That all you see, live for but one
In sadness, joy, sometimes felicity
Where noise is but a song, a swan

Should you question your soul
More often than your mind
Keep a secret so sweet, so whole
That your life you'll spend to find

That secret, few to none can tell
Resides deep in depth, often dark
Hidden from wish, or a bare spell
That to find, just make your mark

For you see, in the single star
Crowded in blue, darker still
You live among giants, and afar
You tower over them, braver still



Wisdom Wheel

Among the souls of ghosts past
Reside a point, all blinding
In which we blend, we fast
Believing, feeling, often dying

That point, that circle, that zero
Forcing us to evolve in thinking
To a point when no return, no hero
Can search it without learning

In second pass, dense thoughts
Evolving knowledge, one understands
That to win a game of draughts
You need to call on you, wit in hands

Reach back to the point, angel white
We've evolved where wisdom and heart
Surrounds our soul, without fight
We surrender, we are at our start



Spirit and Things

Evolving between two truths
Our mind chooses convenience
Over reality, believing our youth
For it is easier than penance

Few truth give joy and pain
Than accepting who we are
Divided between sun and rain
Living away from our soul, afar

The material attracts our mind
Without shame, calling us real
Absent for a second, blind
We follow the siren downhill

The spirit with shame strength
Reminds us in that same second
That all we need is within, a length
We often refuse to take, to bond

Between spirit and things, the choice
Is always easy, for never undecided
We go forward, thinking in one voice
This is me, this is mine, unabridged




So Few Words

An expression called, can tell you
What a person thinks in deep
With a few tears, without ado
You guess the song, fall and weep

But without hesitation, nor fear
Words can break walls, wash fire
Carrying in their hearts, dear
The soul of one, a hidden desire

Oh, words devoted to passion
Few carry your weight, your life
Than those spoken in devotion
In hate, love, to no one, to a wife

A Family carry the belief that feelings
Unexpressed, hidden, far from sight
Can be replaced by words, of all dealings
Without trace, a sound, never fight

Life remain in words unspoken, undead
Deep in the silent soul of the deaf
Who before sight would claim, they said
To a man of few words life gives the clef



Why did you draw a flower?

From your depth in mismatched height
Asking questions, many of which burn
In all fairness, often taken aback
Admiring your simplicity, your turn

In drawings and songs, a life you take
Dancing to colours, singing to self
Awakening with each breath you make
Learning all, questioning all, an elf

I ponder if you've realised the future
That each thought, fleeting, entrenched
Creates in each second, all to endure
Your core, your soul, your life drenched

Sitting at the table, a day among others
Expressing yourself, in words of all power
Puzzled by a drawing, a shape, a colour
But, you said, why did you draw a flower?




Love Much. Laugh More

Falling is the first step
Living it, the second
Leaving it, the third
Recovering, the fifth
Falling again, the sixth

Love is just as life, evolving
Eternal for one year, then gone
An early childhood, teething
Ending in pain, all but done

Seen by an eye fleeting
Never searching, often seeking
The one believed, to be deserving
Of a fall, joyful but never ending

That step taken leads to days
In which each soul in truth tells
Of a better world, without daze
Where each heart is as bells

Time talking fast, taking toll
Takes the dove away, or dead
For without caring, a grand Ball
Always end-up alone, enough said

That same clock gives us hope
For one day, those painful chests
Will lift, sun and stars taking note
And you'll rest, then take those steps

For you can't stop, it is written
That if you want to be alive: Love
There is no other way, be smitten
Love much, laugh more, but love




The Grass Blade

At the end of a garden
Lives a grass blade, strange.
Thinking, isn't grass even?
Not so, for here we change

Bending tall in the azure wind
Proud to be, aware of its age
The blade talked, to a twin
Alike in colour, yet each a sage

Hear him on a light bright day
Telling you to live as he does
Deeply rooted, with a clear way
A better wizard, better than Oz

Wisdom and fun in stride, our blade
Talking to neighbors, to a friend
Repeating all thoughts, as said
When the blade speaks, fend

I saw him last on Tuesday, wait
It could have been his twin yet
Strangely, joy or sadness weight
A heart without him is a day unset



Honour Soldiering on

Why does honour closes when tested
A deep sentiment of fate, a burden
Follow a thought tranquil yet blamed
As failures occurs, we regret often

As shoulders covered in symbols
Express honour more than wishes
For the mark of a soldier, falls
In our heart when it switches

The rest, without clouds to protect
Live in deepened sorrow, why work
With no sense in its core, we object
To be taken for granted, to burk

Standing tall in line, headstrong
Covered in memory, forgotten history
Of past gents, whose pains never wrong
Showed us to refrain blaming glory

Honour is for all who seek, value it
A taking unquestioned, never undecided
For at every cross road, we either sit
Or we live, we die, always honoured



Starry Death

Few hurts live in one's heart forever
Than the death of love, of a loved one
Passing through heaven, sweeter
Without memory, dying of a swan

Since life rolls in music, crescendo
The lonely soul aims for more
A scent left alone without you. So?
Do we care when one takes the door?

There is no excuse for little thought
In taking care of one's own, one's flow
Lonely in our water, a future bought
In torn thoughts, with tears, without bow

All passes on, from dust to star
Of all nights, mightier, ever brighter
Without death life doesn't go far
But every shadow is hated, how clever



Divine Reality

It is the claim of all fields
That to attain divinity
One must seek, yield
A soul imperfect, sorry!

Standing unfinished
Life's aims is destiny
Relatively undiminished
In unity with all Glory

What if one doesn't want
To reach perfection but
Rather prefers the swamp
Of knowledge uncut?

Starts with choosing
Knowledge or unity
Rather than granting
All in impunity…




Name on the Door

What's a name on the door?
A statement of eternity
Limited in time, what for?
As all end rather politely

Few possessions so clear
Than a paneled wood
With colour obtuse, oh fear
Shallow we are, grave food

The door made a symbol
Of life, libertine passions
Unless it's the cloudy fall
To whom we give discussions

The name made a symbol
Of a foolish divine spark
Fighting with all our soul
To make the world less dark

Oh, name on the door
Fade away faster than I
Cause I go away, I soar
Loudly, not even a sigh



Blood Sun

It's an old country tale, infinite
A red sun, before the day next
Tells of a breeze strong in spirit
Made to laze, just a pretext

Or does it refer to war, in Mars
Where blood lying in blades
Rise to the morning, scars
Full of passion, by brigades

Or is it simply an effect, crudely
Of evening angles, our earth
Relating to other planets, cruelly
Just physics, no cause, no birth

In truth, it's all. What we see
On such evening, a blood sun
Powerful, majestic, its glory
Is ours, is yours, all sudden




Knowing Late

Why do we know
That we need to
In time rather slow
Later that we ado

To know for certain
One's destiny
A gift that begun
Early, all in Eden

A privilege of trust
Giving clarity
No matter if just
To one's destiny

Only age, only time
Gives us all a view
Of who we are, I am
Active, claiming virtue

Why can't we have
Knowledge inborn
To live not a half
But in full, if borne

If asked, questioned
I need to know before
I act, often unthreatened
Yes, I need no more


Standing Poet

Standing there, wondering
If this was Hell, was Heaven
Yet sure of your doing
You changed. Now even

Black on black, daughter
Of our civilisation eternal
Your words shine brighter
Than our hearts fraternal

Open to vibration unknown
Still in soul, fired in heart
You claimed without a frown
What pushes us apart

Never despair, seed of life
Your fight is one, never afar
From your senses rife
Speak, think, as you are



Sometime Alone, Never Lonely

Which star in the night
Belongs to the other
None, they all fight
For life, for a corner

Yet, peaceful dark
Contrast of a day
When brilliant spark
Question its way

Each alone, strong
Dependent on none
Starry eye, wrong
To fear being done

Sometimes alone
Never lonely
A creed drown
To all glory



Peasant or Knight

Why would I seek, or fight
For a condition not my own
At heart, peasant or knight
Do I decide? Is it in stone?

In both states honour resides
For no man in truth, sincerely
Can be blamed, God abides
None stronger than yours truly

Seeking solace in an ignored title
That can't be bought, only given
In such condition, my heart idle
Wonders what if? Am I taken?

If in honour you truly live
Worry not on your nobility
For your actions, never furtive
Are your title, your destiny



Claiming Sanity

Are we for real
Can we truly
Before we heal
Claim sanity

Passing for a fool
Living all senses
Giving you a tool
To think in tenses

A hundred years
Of analysis given
Cannot, all swears
Make us less driven

Few if truly wise
Can claim sanity
I for one, my eyes
Prefer, sensibly, folly

Tiny Ballerina

From your height endless
You twirl so your heart
Remembers truth selfless
Learn by birth, never part

Mixing fun, discipline
You make friends of all
Yet aware, a laugh unseen
Will never make you fall

Trust the dance wisdom
Serving a higher purpose
One when you and om
Merge, in life repose

You will grow, never worry
For your soul connects
To all, as one, no mystery
A fact of life in all aspects


John & Jesus

Was one before the other
An order destined, timed
So no message truer
Among believers passed

Just as a thought, a belief
Ultimately a matter of faith
Take a truth, render it brief
And turn into your breath

If a teacher knows the truth
Like John and Jesus honoured
In faith, such trust, such youth
Forgive us our thoughts unlimited

Who of the two deserve life
For neither queen, neither king
Saw their name as their wife
Taken by fear, not by wing

They live in all, in soul granted
An eternity to forgive, to forget
Than all error past, so tested
Will always be yours, it is set.




False Spirituality

If time presents itself
Each spirit will soar
Without regret, safe
Knowing how to adore

Yet, the light of a word
Carries the power to kill
Any soul as a bird
Unable to stay still

Such ironic poesy
As it all started
With a word, free
Bravely ended

Talking without thought
Gives birth to conflict
Forget what you sought
Each idea is strict

Open your mind to gold
Each stone unsearched
Will gravely stop you cold
Before you spirit's birthed

False spirituality abound
In each word untested
By life coming around
In a circle arrested




Town of the Hill

Town of the hill
Standing still
Few know you
Few love you

Souvenir gone
To a past done
Of time given
Better, worsen

Jewel in the light
Quiet and bright
Carrying dreams
With all screams

Summer cool
Winter fool
Once a week
Friends I seek

Town of the hill
Love fulfill
Rest in peace
Part Art piece




L'inconnue

Sitting nearly far apart
Seeing your reflection
I wonder how to start
Guessing your decision

You rest in a dream
Calm, still, angelic
Unknowing the scream
Lying to the critic

Should we talk insight
Or let our lives drift
Away from the fight
That comes as a gift

Your life is your own
Stay your course
No one can frown
You are the source

Never to meet
We rest unknown
Taking in the week
Hearts have flown




Christmas Morning

Eager anticipation
Of a feast of passion
Christmas is love
Of but one above

Knowing full well
All should dwell
On white Snow
Heart in flambeau

Truth brightly told
Morning full and bold
All in Christmas being
Rejoice in the coming

Families of one kind
No colour, one mind
Awake to the power
Of the true sower

The year is in sight
Days away, write
Your life on the wall
Just as you recall

Christmas morning
In daylight cleansing
The night before
For all to adore



Going Nowhere

Far from the end of the road
A sign with words abashed
State of a past so broad
Yet untold, mostly cached

Thinking aloud why it is so
Realising, few know the truth
None die of reason, nor bow
Yet all dream, if uncouth

Going nowhere is a gift
For with nowhere to go
You can't miss, nor shift
Never needing to know

With few years to live real
Waste not each first second
Open your heart, deeply feel
The walls marked, crimsoned

Own more than one path
Fulfill a cherished destiny
Ignore another's wrath
Trust your soul, closely

Going nowhere is a gift
Should you really see
For a nation to uplift
All you need is to be



Sister of two Gods

Sister of two Gods
Do you truly know
When time is at odds
You only can grow

On morning full
Bright in light
Your heart dull
Chose to fight

Bearing the scar
Of betrayal real
From nations afar
Testing your will

Go forth and thrust
In depth of the soul
One who is just
Will turn you whole

Apollo to Athena
Truth is so wise
Soul or beauty saga
Trust not your eyes

Fear not others
Their short thought
Full of bothers
Equals to naught

Sister of two Gods
Decide who you are
Live without nods
Only you can go far



Not Knowing

Is it a matter of reflection
To know who you are
Or a desire for attention
Leading us sadly afar

One is, that's all there is
With few words known
The soul aims to be his
Yet unknown, alone

Oh, knowledge evolving
How much was lost
For time, in birth till dying
Not knowing the cost

Our Ancestors knew more
So much more than we
For their soul came before
The will we so adore

The present wisdom
Is temporal, often wrong
A mere page in an album
Of thoughts not yet Song

Not knowing is a bliss
Cherished by fools
Claiming wisdom amiss
In a library of tools

The future simply belongs
To those who remember
Truth's past in many songs
Unlearning today in wonder



The Silence

Is life better lived
In silence, unafraid
Of words unfinished
Of thoughts betrayed

Silence expressed
By a lack of words
Tear a soul blessed
By many cowards

Silenced by the light
Away from a thought
That vision without sight
Is of a mind distraught

Silent yet thinking
That few in the world
Know life would bring
Many days that twirled

The silence you hear
Sounds of your thoughts
Destines you to clear
All doubts, all footnotes

Stay clear of silence
If you can't face distance
Nor truth without absence
Nor words without patience



A Soul So True

A soul so true
Facing such pain
Without a clue
It's only a chain

True, fierce friend
Swayed by flesh
Having to fend
For a life afresh

Ever searching fate
In books unwritten
Till a cheerful date
Offers a sun smitten

Alone, proud, still
Keeping the key
To a sole freewill
Till we all agree

Without distance
Far enough to lose
Your own absence
Nor any virtues

Stranger beware
There is strength
In a mind aware
Of its own length




Names Remembered

In time forgotten
A name was all
To avoid Eden
Let a name fall

Naming the child
Sets a lifetime
Of love, often exiled
Till all say 'I am'

Families have fought
Battles for a crest
A land, a spouse besot
Their names now rest

If for a second
A name you forgot
Emotion blazoned
Stay still, worry not

Simply never forget
An old friend's name
For all friends unmet
Your lives reclaim

A name for your soul
Full in clear destiny
Claiming more and all
A name is eternity



The Cheerful Philosopher

In the light of wisdom
Stood a bright soul
Looking for a poem
To listen, to console

Seeing the limits
Of talking, of writing
Focused all his wits
On tomorrow's spring

Facing the wind
With an open mind
Two thoughts twinned
Showed Eden designed

Trust not the flame
Flickering in the wave
But more what became
Of you after the grave

Many a friend today
Prefer to obey, to pray
Forgetting that doorway
Leading them away

In truth, the word
Began in the arc
Deeply centered
Around the dark

Is it truly possible
For a philosopher
As a cheerful symbol
To never show anger

The answer is simple
For the love of the wise
Began inside the cycle
Deep inside the skies



Village of Soul-trees

In an old, far way, part of the land
Stand a village of no resting place
Each person in his last stand
Is given a tree to rest in grace

Ancient tradition lost to all souls
Created calm, bucolic streets
Lined with trees, a sign of roles
Reflecting elites and cheats

With every returning spring
Each street in beauty explodes
Full of colours, scents, masking
A life passing many crossroads

Each tree an owner's soul
Each leaf, a inner belief
Good and evil truly whole
A moment full, so brief

In all stands a question
A deep sense for legacy
Ages blind with no mention
Of what would your tree be



Tired

Too tired to reach
I stand empty
Facing the breach
Of a memory

Missing past ghosts
Bathed in honour
Acting as hosts
Without true power

Tired to live, to die
With much time left
To cry, to glorify
Time, guilty of theft

Letting most days
Pass with passion
Fearing many ways
To think without reason

Tired yet not empty
I will come to finish
The life I so carry
Before all vanish



Search Constant

Searching for a life constant
Same as searching constantly
Neither truly, fully pleasant
Both required to be happy

We all start with the same second
Yet each card given is different
Some will take it and respond
Others will hate or be indifferent

The search is on for a future
Based on faith, on philosophy
Both sides avoiding a rupture
Our ancestors paid for dearly

Each individual a god, one’s son
Whose omnipotence, often ridiculed
Is rather obvious, and has begun
Ignore limited minds obscured




Righteousness

Fear the righteous
Who knows well
His thoughts anxious
Have gone stale

Given, not learnt
Such poor thinking
In them burnt
Leads each doing

For right or wrong
Leading a crusade
Against the strong
Yet dying as a blade

On few ever dawned
Seeing death abound
Their way beyond
A shallow God bound

Oh, righteous beware
To enter life unaware
Of others whose glare
Shadow your heir



The Secret

'Can you know something
And never repeat it?'
This is a stolen writing
Yet this truth is all wit

I know a secret of fools
One that everyone knows
It stays away from all rules
Used to keep your woes

'We are what we think'
Wisdom of the ages
Stolen from one's ink
Buried in black ashes

A secret so unknown
Not the word, its power
Cause you, you alone
Can make it The answer

Spread it like it’s yours
For few will understand
That this thought cures
All there is in your hand


On Being Right

Few truths hurt more
Than being right
As those you adore
Will give-up the fight

What makes me think
What I know is true
As without a blink
I forget your view

Why do you take for real
The knowledge you hold
Daughters of how you feel
Yet rarely stand you bold

We think mainly alone
Lost in a world so bleak
Proud of a logic prone
To failure for the weak

Whether I, you, or we
On being right we fear
For others' limits we see
Of ourselves, we're unclear



The Blessed Crow

In old past days
Stood a blessed crow
Whose glorified ways
Made all to bow

Old, bright raven
Brought wisdom
To our heaven
To our bosom

He lived before
Time had opened
The coloured door
We all entered

Thinking wholly
To void Man's folly
Giving faithfully
Hope without mercy

He is still here
Mainly unseen
By eyes undear
To all but Win

In time the Crow
Will come to shore
To still the sorrow
Few truly adore

Keep your heart open
When his scream heard
Will give trust and then
Freedom of the bird



The Flag

Blood born in battle
A flag brought glory
To its Knights brittle
Changing each destiny

To die for any flag
Of unconcerned nations
Which politically brag
Of lost sons for dominions

But each flag a symbol
Of trust and honour
Not a leader, not an idol
Truly know the horror

Honour and horror
Living in a hero's heart
A battle none are for
Yet all need to restart

See the flag drenched
For what it is today
Symbol of a life wretched
All dying for the way



Saints and Sinners

In time Saints and Sinners
Will walk hand in hand
Proud of what others
Have written in the sand

A Saint once claimed
To know the truth
Forgetting the blamed
He met in his youth

The sinner saw clarity
In his life unfettered
By all forms of charity
Yet sadly, oddly, centered

Both dripping much blood
Of victims unconcerned
By the sight of the flood
Spread by the learned

But which to choose
A path straight, clear
Or another to loose
Your soul, yet not fear

A sinner is a Saint, and
All Saints are sinners
Better grand than bland
Ask all known winners

When the trumpets call
Your decisions will stand
At the door or the wall
Depending on your strand

Choose well every minute
For each counts in the end
As you turn back to dispute
Each thought, each friend



Your Fault

You left before Christmas
Not even completing your life
Who on earth would pass
And live a world rife

I blame you always
With all my heart
For not being in days
Taking the road apart

You were my brother
As only the single child
Could be with another
Friends to death, how wild

Living in a land of Legends
Undisturbed by reality
Forgetting that in our hands
Resides life, lives our destiny

Oh, I blame you still
For living us alone to be
Since then our still will
Has been reviving its glory

We moved on without
Your gifts, your voice
Unforgotten son of doubt
Forever now rejoice


Bells of Destiny

In the evening before God
Rings the spiritual bells
Giving all the time to nod
To one, ignoring all hells

Smile not, for their melody
Resonates deep within you
Tuning you with eternity
To be, without further ado

Smile yet for that same reason
As from within you are without
In this is, is a simple lesson
We truly are what we think about

The bells my father heard
On the eve of his birth
His knowledge conquered
Claiming life over earth

It is the same bells humanity
Will listen to on the last day
Bells of deliverance, of unity
Born in a fire burning today

Listen to each of their voice
As you open your mind
In the morning, rejoice
As they make you less blind




Beware the Tyrant

The tyrant with one sweep
Takes lives, hearts and souls
In his name glorified, all weep
None is safe from his cajoles

Son of peasants, barely common
Or son of the highest order
Each tyrant claims to summon
God for himself, for the better

Few think such honour
To know well your path
Against good, or all other
Is worth facing his wrath

Yet many in caves darkened
Will fight his strength, his will
To live a life envisioned
By prophets before the chill

It's bizarre that such tyrant
Never living from without
Lies deep inside the patient
He is within, yet we shout



Stop Talking

What is the use
Of a voice unspoken
If you'd be a muse
Say it unwritten

Why did Adam speak
The language of God
Yet fell, became weak
No longer of real blood

Since that tongue
Now forgotten
We speak strong
In sounds stricken

And today our eyes
Open to a world
Filled with goodbyes
Said and twirled

Choose silence
Over words
Blessed in trance
Love entered

Stop all talking
Before life's lost
Prefer praying
Over the frost



The Devil's house

In a forgotten village
Deep behind a forest
Stands with courage
An angel on test

Guarding One's house
By the door's threshold
Where not even a mouse
Would see his life unfold

An Angel never sins
Hence you may wonder
Why such fate it wins
But to him, it’s Honour

The few who dare pass
Often lost or on purpose
Will see an empty house
Feeling lonely but jealous

Of the seven gates
This one fear most
In shadows it waits
To your sins be host

And do remember
That past that door
The devil is a doer
Awaiting to roar




Rainmaker

How to be sad
When it rains
Nothing bad
In watered drains

Yet making rain
Is a gift of God
Taking a brain
Turning it odd

A word change
Removed the gift
Made it dange'
More than swift

Today with talk
Of money goods
Where to walk
With no woods

The rain has gone
From high above
To a life done
Buy a golden dove

Pray yet
As somewhere the rain
Pours on a life truly set
On a spiritual reign


Knowing it all

We've met before
I'm the one who knows
Everything you adore
On which it snows

Knowing it all
Is a gift, a burden
Leading all to fall
Foreseen, yet sudden

Is it truly possible
For one to know all
Without being able
To create its own wall

It is rather obvious
That all know all
Without being devious
Ask the records' hall

Do you seek such power
Of being more than being
If yes, then climb the tower
Each step will be your undoing

But fear not white foal
Heed your own speed
For you must loose it all
To know all that you need



Crazy but Sane

Never claim sanity
Fools will love you
Remain yours truly
Stay colourfully true

Sanity is not bad
After all many are
Yet seeming sad
Their dreams afar

Balancing in between
A life seems worthy
To those who win
A fight truly crazy

Our progress for sure
The result of madmen
From whom each venture
Seemed rational again

If choosing you must
Gear towards crazy
For can you really trust
One with all his sanity

How many chose
To be crazy or sane
When life's woes
Forces you to blame

Whichever way you go
It's your choice, none other
A decision in which to grow
Or perish alone, sadder


Who do you pray to

Who do you pray to
Before you sleep
Who do you pray to
Before you weep

A prayer misused
Forgets its power
A prayer is abused
If to change another

A prayer changes
Those who pray
Not mere wishes
But the true way

No words needed
For the true God
Help those blinded
Even the flawed

No words needed
For God knows
What each wanted
Even before their egos

Whether you chose
Or received your God
Pray and compose
A life to be awed

Who do you pray to
Matters truly not
And in all you do
Pray, as all forgot


January First

January First
Nothing rehearsed
Nothing worst
Than never be first

Playing a year anew
All among the few
Noting a real debut
When life you pursue

What will become
Of dreams awesome
Unless you welcome
A time to blossom

Four seasons unique
Leading to your peak
Eternity you can peek
As long as you seek

Twelve months in line
Each made to define
A soul truly divine
Destined to shine

Fifty-two seven days
Resting ablaze
Knowing you amaze
With your gaze

Days and a quarter
Each aimed to alter
The man-made border
Of the censor

January First
Nothing rehearsed
Nothing worst
Than never be first

Enough

Enough of the sound
That kills our souls
In which we're bound
To create walls

Enough of the site
That stands away
Making us take flight
When we should stay

Enough of the smell
That makes us regret
Heed a stronger spell
Before we forget

Enough of the touch
That's makes us dance
We need not much
Just romance

Enough of the taste
That Bacchus leads
We need not waste
If we trust all seeds

A sixth we need
For to sense real
Is a gift indeed
Yet so few will


Heavy Words

We've all said them
Words to regret
Yet none to blame
Each word an asset

Few really master
The soul's sound
For none are better
Than a fool crowned

Yet we live as if
Each word dies
In thoughts stiff
And unsaid cries

The trivial pursuit
Of knowing more
Hurts the astute
And all you adore

Recall the day
When fathers cry
Cause of the way
You let love die

Words are alive
Treat them well
Each will dive
In a heart pastel


Waiting

Waiting is for the strong
Others gratification seek
Though neither wrong
One is for the meek

Is waiting a virtue
As we seem to think
Not to the waiting you
Who hates the fink

Waiting to die
Shows no passion
For a life gone awry
Preferring oblivion

Waiting for a turn
That may never be
Should you adjourn
Go forward and see

What about Godot
Will you wait for him
Or your life below
Is better on a whim

What about tomorrow
Will you still be there
Or having left long ago
Before you were aware

Waiting is not for all
A sage once said
Sourced in your role
And the price you paid

Elemental

Life in itself is basic
We fret for things
Making us weak
Neglecting our wings

The Earth mother
Still believes in us
Children of ether
Proud to discuss

The Air so humble
Strong in its winds
Calm as an Angel
Before it rescinds

Fire a true symbol
For good or purity
Deleting the idol
Stealing our divinity

Water a real flow
Cleaning the path
We take to glow
Even in its wrath

Elemental world
Of nature and Man
From gold be hurled
One Stone in plan



Friends

So many regrets
All made to forget
But one that begets
More pain yet

That of a friend
Left on a road
A life descend
In stride and toad

Life is a trilogy
Of friends proud
A close first truly
None yet bowed

Never a friend leave
Let them go first
For all soul weave
A net immersed

See friends in all
Trust before doubt
And if one should fall
To you let them shout


Believe

Of all the secrets
Believing stands
One which effects
All it demands

Your inner beliefs
Barely false or true
Manages your griefs
Yet not all a virtue

Try to believe more
A little everyday first
Then life you'll adore
And no longer thirst

Once you transform
And know beyond
You will be born
Into a life dawned

Believing is courage
Yet few prefer to loose
A soul of no outrage
Folded in white abuse

This knowledge hidden
To those who seek
Without action given
Will stay closed, unique


Celebrating Death

Why on earth
Would God
Sowed birth
Then yawed

An image we are
Omni and true
Yet limits afar
Slowed the brew

Priests, sages and men
Search to reconcile
What happened then
This will last a while

If we are that image
Then why we pass
Praying a glory age
Forgetting life, alas

All celebrating death
As if it is necessary
Us to use a breath
Made to be witty

Death we celebrate
Not for what's there
But for today's date
To be all, anywhere

Fail Freedom

Fail freedom, expire
Few truly realise
Even as a desire
Unfulfilled, it dies

Being selfishly human
Isn't freedom my own
Focus on your omen
And leave me alone

Freedom's a word
Unless we fight it
Life to the absurd
Finds soul bit by bit

In symbol and in life
We strive to be free
In apathy or rife
All a cross to carry

But free at what cost
Thinking not of others
We die before we're lost
Unknowing of neighbors

For life to have meaning
On others we shall bet
For love is all blessing
Be free of that regret


Out of Sync

The world vibrates
A truth eternal
Preceding fates
Before our fall

Leaving in reality
In dreams needed
I take sanctity
Absolving my deed

So many minutes
And short hours
As life distributes
All true powers

Clear vibration
Of life more real
BE in slow motion
Ignoring the wheel

To truly know you
In synch I have to be
With a spirit so true
That I can only see

Jail Free

Curiosity kills
Cats not mice
Paying all bills
With one dice

No one knows
What jail is
Till it shows
A dark breeze

For most, lucky
We live in today
Trusting and free
Each his own way

Many live enclosed
In jails of their own
No apple disclosed
To confuse me alone

Tell me not
What you know
Unless you forgot
To listen to ego

I choose to be free
Of facts and trees
Trusting wholly
In life and fairies











We met on a glance

We met on a glance
Words so unnecessary
Fast turned into dance
Of life, spirit and beauty

So many minutes spent
Exploring thoughts, deeds
Knowing each a God sent
Of what are they the seeds?

Loving life as you know it
Yet it wasn't always so
Tested deeply in spirit
Your soul still in limbo

If in life we meet again
Will it be that beautiful
Can a man, a women
Be friends, oh Devil

Thank you for your truth
For being who you are
Forever in your youth
An angel yet a Star


Roma & Amor

Unique or dual
Life is not real
Only in plural
You truly feel

Two chapels
Each a seal
Of past battles
Fighting in zeal

Destroying each
Truth wisdom
Divine breach
Of love blossom

Which be mine
For I know not
Unless sublime
I never forgot

Roma or Amor
I choose thee
For each adore
Their divinity

Son of God
Tell us clear
Without fraud
Not to fear


Jail Free

Curiosity kills
Cats not mice
Paying all bills
With one dice

No one knows
What jail is
Till it shows
As cold breeze

For most, lucky
We live in today
Trusting and free
Each his own way

Yet living enclosed
In jails of our own
Having proposed
To be truly alone

Life is funny
If you choose
To live in unity
None can refuse

Break your jail
For it is yours
None be so frail
As to let


Joy

Life's a desire
Playfully given
Made to aspire
To the eleven

Trust the star
Of your birth
As all so far
Gave worth

Each day
Is a promise
For the way
Or the abyss

Chose alone
As none other
But God known
Would bother

Give your heart
Seek passion
It is a true art
To forget reason

Joy is life
Life is joy
Avoid strife
Don't be coy


Heaven & Hell

Bound by omnipotence
Heaven and Hell fall
Each for dominance
Of the other, of all

Opposed triangles
Of the same faith
Each truth fumbles
With each breath

Do we decide
Our way to go
Do we divide
With each ego

No one knows
If they exists
Yet each flows
In sublime fists

It is a choice
Never easier
As each voice
Hates the lesser

Heaven & Hell
Exists in hearts
Before they fell
Before he starts


The Tree and the Druid

Working in the forest
Is not what it used to be
Then a twenty-year test
Was all you had to see

I remember the days
When each tree talked
Telling of all the ways
We saw and walked

Each a friend in heart
Giving meaning to our Sun
Blessed yet never apart
From where all had to run

The Willows bows to life
Follow the Oak in season
Trust the Holly and be rife
While Hazel turns you beacon

Each tree in us belongs
For in him we strengthen
Clearings all wrongs
We gave to our brethren

Walk among them
Feel their voice
Listen to their poem
And make your choice

Want

I want
You want
They want
We want

It can't end
Till we know
Till each hand
Takes it slow

Seek the wise
In mind or soul
See the faith
Become whole

Want or need
Two faces coin
Each the seed
Unneeded to rejoin

The heart's desire
Knitting passions
Into a bonfire
Of petty actions

Yet the true heart
Needless, unwanting
In all of us impart
Our soul's deepening


Give me the power to read

If God asked me today what I needed
I would have to say, read
If God asked me today what I wanted
I wouldn’t dream of changing my request
I want the power to read and live beyond my eyes
I need that power to enter realms beyond realms
With few years in which to learn it all
All can be learned in a second
Yet if we want to truly stay true
In a world where truth is ever changing
We need to love another's words
And write our own in ink and blood
I've never thought about the power of words
Until they reaped my heart apart
When a stranger with no attachments
Said a truth that disturbed my soul
Stay your course he said
Yet change if you dare
For none posses the power so divine
At the one who chooses to go somewhere else
Their is sickness in that thought
For I was well and ignorant as I stood firm on my land
Once those words were proposed
I had to redeem my heart and start walking
Reading, talking, thinking and dreaming alone among others
I've been on all roads ever since

Awaken

Life awaken
Death awaken
Fear not brother
You're no other

It takes a life
To know it all
Without strife
Can I stand tall

Yet we seek
Calmness indeed
Away, not weak
Fools in deed

A light true and far
Awakes the senses
Unwilling we are
To drop defenses

Asleep always
I stay awaken
Dreaming of days
Free, unbroken

In life or death
Why can't I see
Truth and faith
And be free

Choice of Faith

Are we born in sin
Unaware of its cause
Bathing and clean
To all applause

For each day we see
What truly we are
In dreamic apathy
Lost to God afar

Not choosing yesterday
Doesn't absolve the sin
Of choosing any a way
As long as we win

That church of mine
Deep within my soul
Tells all that I am fine
Alive, strong and whole

Trust the universal faith
Its choice of beliefs
Yet so real is a wraith
Life must have many leafs

Descend into you
Climb into God
Either one pursue
And be awed

Corner of my eye

I see enough in the corner of my eye
To know that life can pass me by
To live I have to be willing to die
To an unnecessary faith or sigh

The true future starts in the heart
Combining hope and dreams we steer
Avoiding confusion that takes us apart
Involved in the world we hold so dear

I know who I am, I have been told
Here lies the irony of life few realise
For if I knew that, would I hold
Beliefs that gives life after it dies

In front of us is a future
We mold with every thought
Real or imagined we endure
A style that can be bought

Yet from the corner of my eye
I see a life I want to live
Where nature asks me why
Did I ever want to leave



Conspiracy Theories

A world full of secrets
Some known, some not
Many create dull regrets
And some aim to plot

A gathering of brethren
Aiming to bring light
To a few sons given
Yet leading to midnight

Are the chosen few
So bright, so cunning
As if at morning dew
All knew of the coming

Or is History but truly
Random events unclear
With but one God solely
Knowing beyond fear

Can a group of men
Like a beast unseen
Fight for strife again
And die unclean

No one knows truly
If our lives controlled
Sometimes unwillingly
Are better unsold

But we sons of God
Truly know better
Even if we’re flawed
Truth is our altar



Narrow Pathways

In cities unknown and medieval
Narrow pathways protected
Nobles and peasants, all
From enemies undetected

In a war falling unto Gibraltar
Iron horses with narrowed shoes
Saved Latin heroes from a star
Of unclaimed blood and no virtues

Yet life itself requires more
No matter which God you adore
For narrow pathways to your heart
Will block you at every start

Each such pathway if unchecked
Will lead you, fine soul, unprepared
To a crossroad that will connect
Your life to God or his angel spared

At each crossroads that devil stands
For it’s his house not matter how odd
He will question all your demands
And offer his help to make you flawed

Thank him all heartily for his invite
But you can say no without thinking
You already are an imperfect knight
And the right path is of your choosing

Open you heart, mind and soul
To life itself via wide pathways
And each time you’re on a roll
Trust you inner guard, always


Duty or Pleasure

In time of doubt
Two paths appear
One for the devout
Or else the seer

Duty or pleasure
A question deep
Made to reassure
Those who weep

The beauty of all
Is you can choose
Unless taken to fall
You prefer to loose

There is no man
To whom such choice
Left him to be damn
Of his own voice

Neither leads to hell
But which to heaven
Of that I can't tell
Being odd, uneven

Yet choose you must
For the path foretold
Will make you trust
You're one in the fold


Kingdom of Heaven

Oh! kingdom of heaven
Never real, never unreal
Are you a God, a maiden
Oh! all hearts you steal

Will you surrender the secret
Of your name to a brethren
Owner of paradise's debt
Carried to a land barren

Heed that word, that name
That fools and wise alike
Have searched to blame
No fault would ever strike

From words to conflicts
Your kingdom falls daily
Yet, it rising again depicts
Nothing known, nothing earthly

This secret opens hearts
While locking truth inside
Often seen in all true Arts
Yet hidden in paint applied

Kingdom of heaven, hear me
I'm weak yet often strong
And in deeds I pray to thee
Don't make me always wrong

Dependency Kills

Learn a truth: Dependency kills
No matter how good it feels
A fact you'll learn against you will
Even if you decide to remain still

Yet, let's put this in perspective
There is nothing like to live
For another in a loving weave
Together yet ever suasive

Do strive for togetherness
Alone or with someone else
Life lived is truly priceless
Let others stand heartless

The dependency spoken here
Is of love struggling so dear
Submerged in passion unclear
Seemingly open, rarely sincere

But who can give such advice
Except for those deep in vice
Whose soul tricked twice
Only seek to all entice

Dependency kills it’s true
Yet noting better than being two
Let’s die in its embracing brew
And forever that mistake value


In a Whisper

In a whisper she departed
Surrounded in white walls
With strangers animated
Unknown to all Gauls

Her figure who raised
An infant to a man
Trusting, often amazed
Yet a odds with the clan

Loved beyond compare
Shattered by the earth
Frantically pursuing the air
That removed her birth

That night unsung
When all hearts died
In cooper unstrung
Father and son lied

In a coal field she rests
Among those of the clan
None fulfilled their quests
Their lives truly began

In a whisper of love
She remains a soul
That left in life above
A love eternally whole


Knowing the Secret

A name so powerful
Dead to the faithful
So searched by all
Known if so noble

Such name unknown
Written in blood alone
Hidden in the darkness
Of a lineage flawless

The days of the bear
Of a search in prayer
Answered by a book
Lost when they look

Seek it where it lies
Before the Heart dies
Neither forest nor lakes
Will show your mistakes

The only true Secret
Of the index prophet
Belongs to all worthy
Of life’s real beauty

Questions all your deeds
For if your search succeeds
Would you use that name
For life or worldly fame

The Gate

Why wait at Heaven's gate
Wondering if you belong
You loved and had to hate
As none knew the true song

In life we passed along
Unaware of our neighbours
Both possibly were wrong
To miss so many answers

From time to time a flash
An epiphany if they exist
Showed us that in a dash
Life is in who you assist

No one is truly selfish
For every life matters
You’ll see at the finish
Friends, fathers, mothers

To be judged at the gate
Is a plus, for who cares
What was your fate
Not even your heirs

Heaven’s gate opens to all
There are no exceptions
Once this truth you recall
You’ll be joining legions


Thoughts are

Thoughts are things
In black & white
Left alone their wings
Will give us sight

Thoughts are people
In all colours
They'll rise and fall
With full honours

Thoughts are dreams
Useful and not
Playful in extremes
Most you forgot

Thoughts are trees
Deeply rising
In lands and seas
Never aging

Thoughts are us
Teaching forever
In divine chorus
How to be better

Thoughts are healers
In words and sounds
Mixing humours
Each truly astounds

Thoughts are you
So try to think
For each will renew
You're life in a blink


A Child

None has life more than a child
Questioning all that there is
Dancing, diving, running wild
Taken by nature's quiz

Trust him, cherish her always
For their time in innocence
Goes faster than our days
Involved in life's dance

A child's life is beyond a promise
We make ourselves early on
As they dream without malice
A future they've already won

Life is their school, their teacher
Just as it was ours in other days
Sharing each victory, each error
From each other, learning their ways

We all remember our youth
Whether happy or angry
It is the source of our truth
One we need to live freely

Life is a Miracle

Die into life
Die into spirit
No matter
Can hold you

Life is truth
Unaltered
Undeterred
By falsehood

Pray or think
Either way
Leads life
Into itself

Choose wisely
Or not
Either way
Leads to life

Day in or out
Never wait
Always act
Always trust

First light
Then sunset
Take you
Make you


Future's History

You who perpetrated the future of History
Who never felt much for polite society
Dancing in the sun and moon’s beauty
You left us all, what a true pity

Facing your fear until hated
By minds of lesser destiny fated
For you knew we all faded
The day your words came shaded

Those free words you blessed
None and few truly addressed
Many works of depth varied
All one, often sadly married

Yet the mechanics of God
Disturbed by churches in cross
Rarely dared to listen to an ode
Written by who else but logos

The true future of history
Lies in a past unwritten
Forgotten by man unashamed
Of the life before Him

Truth in Symbols

A dot, a circle, a triangle
Enters the life created
Against a wishful devil
Of God truly entrusted

Each image sublimed
Source of truth blessed
Of wisdom expressed
In black half-whitened

For life is in the dot
Unaware, truly naught
Seeking what is taught
In twice negative thought

Eternal time is circle
Beginning in an angel
Ancient pagan cycle
Forgotten but annual

Three sides equal
Brothers of old fables
Against their own evil
Stronger in couples

The truth is in symbols
A vision beautifully fated
As dots, circles, triangles
Born of earth undated


The Blueberry's Brutal Attack

Evidently one must pay attention
To the blueberry's brutal demeanor
When unaware, the poor visitor
Encounters a fruit's dominion

A simple act of two enemies
One wiser than necessary
The other believes in deities
Neither sure of their destiny

As the sun opens a new day
Among others, each sway
Thoughts disturbing vibrations
Reminds all, they are cousins

Standing on white with friends
The encounter is truly unfair
Each knows how it ends
A battle, an epic warfare

Between metal and burned clay
Focused on what the animal needs
One crushes and has his way
The other fights and bleeds

The moral of such tragic story
Is so simple than none worry
As each participant survives
To the sound of united lives


Life is a Rhythm

Life is a rhythm
Life has a rhythm
In each second
In each sound

Turn and listen
See and widen
Your horizon
Your definition

Ignore each sense
In life immense
Born in oblivion
In God's dominion

Ask and receive
For none deceive
The trusted heart
Whose life's an Art

When life turns
In new patterns
Follow your soul
Become whole

Listen and think
Life goes in a blink
Yet each is eternal
Even before the fall

Life is a rhythm
Life has a rhythm
You're blessed in it
More than you admit


Timeless Thinking

I want to stop thinking
And know what life's about
I want to start dreaming
Open my soul and shout

I fear for nothing but life
That's been wasted on me
For I should know the strife
I cause when I ignore beauty

The storm I create in words
Stays in hearts unborn
I am the King of cowards
Living ignored, forlorn

Yet it is painfully clear
That I could use such power
To trust all life so dear
To love the soul in the hour

Think of it, it is easy
All I need is to choose
The right path in a hurry
And walk its virtues

Thinking is a but a step
I need to follow to its end
Yet I know that to be an adept
I must stop thinking and ascend

Life is a Myth

Life is a Myth
One to live with
A dream for sure
In itself pure

We know we're alive
A thought we derive
From thinking deeply
About ourselves mainly

As we see another
Pretending to be blur
We claim, poor fellow
As above, so below

For a Myth is truth
Adapted from our youth
Set in such a dream
Woken-up in a scream

Yet taking that long road
From home to abroad
With hope in our head
Preferring to be dead

Few wake-up to the bit
Of a heart at your feet
Stranded in a life unaware
Of its power in prayer

Life is a Myth, a secret
One you shouldn't regret
Know it and pass it on
Until your days are done

Infinite Belief

We know more than we're told
Yet, to be so bold
As to say such a thing
Means we're dreaming

To believe is divine
Facing a reality sublime
Trusting a greater force
Unseen as the last recourse

Why would a belief
In itself simple and brief
Would last for ever
Never to die nor alter

Unless we're its host
Living in us, well almost
Passing by more truly
For we are here but briefly

All beliefs are recorded
And only our soul halted
Is unable to retrieve
What it is needs to believe

Each belief your project
Stays with us and affect
All others, yet it's funny
For none are new, truly


The Single Tear

The single tear rolls
A sign of your humanity
Or betrayal of emotions
Expressing your inner life
To someone other than you
In this moment of cruel eternity
You relinquish your destiny
For the benefit of another
For you see, that single tear
Is seen by a world aware
Who now thinks you're real
Worthy of living among others
Having also failed and cried
And taken their single tears
Turned them it into a cross
Worn with pride and distinction
To ensure that the next one
Is followed by hope and redemption
Worship that first single pearl
That comes from within deep
A place you're surely unaware
Where your demons and angels
Live side-by-side in unison
Creating your daily thoughts
Each making you better, or worse
But all creating who you are
And every one attaching an emotion
To every second you're in motion
Keep alive and well in this earth
For the longer you stay
The more you can help others
Share that famous single tear



Anonymous Animosity

All haters are anonymous
For their hatred of others
Makes them shy and vicious
Uncertain as all zephyrs

To hate a stranger is easy
Especially when you're lonely
Throw yourself into friendship
And let go of all hardship

One must wonders about hate
How God could have late it slip
Past his, or hers, pearly gate
And left us alone in this trip

Yes both sides in the hate
Often claim the same lord
Both holding the same sword
Both leading to the same fate

If you hate, stay unknown
For your name will be lost
And it's easier to be alone
Than have your heart tossed

For you see, friendship and love
Requires you to be blinded
And in so doing, you raise above
Being anonymous, being hated


Stranger in my own soul

As stranger in my own soul, I was born
Ripping two worlds apart, I felt torn
From that second on, I knew I'd belong
I believed that I could do nothing wrong

I came into life without a stain
No matters who tells me to refrain
I play each second in full, not in vain
For we all are of the same vein

Each step taken reminds us
Of the wisdom we had thus
In time when we were conscious
Oh! Were we humble and humorous

That deep sense of unity I'm afraid
Seems to have been lost, decayed
Aggressed by a sense conveyed
From the One we should dissuade

It is a fight we all must clearly win
And in each day, the struggle will begin
Bringing two worlds in an endless spin
Showing to all that it is in us that we sin

I've failed more than I can remember
In truth, all fights started in anger
Yet nothing would make me braver
Than to offer the win to the better

I am a stranger in my own soul
Not just by birth or love of control
But since my mind forgot its role
I have to seek to remain whole


Divine Love

Love can only be divine
A truth made by design
For if it wasn't true
Nothing could we do

Such a search however
Brings us to light, closer
With a faith to respect
And eternity to expect

For love is eternal
Accessible by all
To let yourself in
Never try to win

To some, it's a choice
To others, a simple voice
But what is it for you
A truth, a wish to undo

No one can help you
Unless in love with you
You are in all days
In every possible ways

And here lies the true light
For divine love is a birthright
Unperceivable, it is in you
In fact, beware, it is you


A Question Without Reason

A question without reason
Seems like high treason
But when it is asked
Away the masque

In a world of numbers
The gifted slumbers
For only in words
Numbers are wizards

What about intent
What did one meant
Where in one voice
He gave you a choice

Questions are true power
For in the oddest hour
They seek an answer
Past beyond the prayer

So the question is
Do you aim to please
Or in life, ask a question
In all real intention

Question without reason
For in this dimension
Your truth is exposed
Your soul reposed


Facing Mirrors

In a small room unclear of its use
Two mirrors reflecting like a muse
Each arguing in their self true
Ever forgetting their own value

You can't stand in between
Without thinking of them twin
In each both self appear
Reflecting your soul clear

Yet, as you turn to face them
You're opposite feels the blame
And in the twirl of twisted fate
Neither knows if to love or to hate

The irony is not lost on the brothers
For to them you are, or not, as others
They've seen the like of you before
But themselves they can only adore

It's neither private, nor personal
So don't pretend to know them at all
For each time you close the door
They see themselves forever more



The Puzzle

All own a piece of the puzzle
Either adept, or most inept
Born of evil or truly angel
Yet few get the real concept

Born into a light unknown
Carrying an unbroken chain
We start life rarely alone
Never seeking in vain

Each step a lesson in nature
Each step a decision taken
In fear or love we murmur
Words deep or barren

Whether traveling a same path
Or going our separate ways
Whether again we’ll repass
Make the most of all days

The world is deeply complex
Each views as valid as the next
Yet often destined to vex
Ensure we learn the context

This life of yours is a puzzle
And the piece you need I hold
As our lives are destined to fizzle
Share what we know, let it be told


The lone singer

He stands alone in a tunnel
Singing his heart out to all
Thanking each that appreciate
His voice, his passion, his fate

Giving him money is so small
As he turns a second into a ball
His song brings us in balance
Sending strangers into a trance

The gift of his song is eternal
As we go forward we cancel
That moment of clear ecstasy
Forgetting how to be happy

Yet coming back along the way
We hear the fate of a familiar day
As we go forth without a choice
We conclude we are one voice

His voice is yours, is mine
Entangled in a joy divine
Sensing the end of sadness
We know for sure it’s endless

Oh, we wish to be like him
Free of fate, but unknowing
That his song given freely
Is his toil to survive daily



The Labyrinth

To know God start on the path
With one end, without time
The true One who without wrath
Shows you patience in a rime

They’re is only one entrance
Just as the end is the same
Yet along each step, balance
For others have that aim

Going in is easy, just one decision
Moving along takes an eternity
And as each step brings reason
Never forget, it’s all in spirituality

Reaching the end is meaningless
And that’s the ancient paradox
For each labyrinth truly express
That it is the end that life unlocks

Short Attention

Starting this poem
Was more difficult
Than to claim
A fate occult

All truth suffers
When false sayers
Ignoring answers
Declare life is prayer

Suffering in silence
Of many a pathway
Living many a dance
I stand in my way

To focus is divine
Yet life is in possibilities
So I drink of the wine
Of so many realities

Jealous of all brothers
Born with a single purpose
I befriend each who suffers
And bring love to their opus


The Ancestors’ Table

I must have sat there many a time
My father before me probably more
So did his father, until time sublime
The table was brought to the fore

Every cut, scratch, or blood mark
Alive and well on a rectangle wood
Where the same blood before dark
Gathered where once others stood

The patriarch always at the head
Matched equally by his bride
Surrounded by those well fed
Ungrateful, only able to deride

The echo of each voice long dead
Resonate with each sitting, each meal
For some ghosts were known in bread
Others, subject to how they feel

It now sits proudly in the same room
Each generation unequal to the next
One will surely take us to our doom
As is written in another ancestor’s text

The Ancestors’ Table is a life parable
Eternal in itself, we see it as finite
Stuck on memories, forgetting life’s cycle
It can only be seen when we see its light



The Tree

Deep below our seas, deep within the earth
Stand the tree alone no one has ever seen
Each leaf a person, its root, a record of our birth
It's trunk, the unity in which we can only win

Raised in our first birth, dying in our first death
Life like, each follows our lives till the end
Every belief, every thought, every breath
Every relationship, every love, every friend

Look at them, they are in your palm
Defined by themselves and their past
Relentless in their growth, yet calm
The teach us to be one without cast

This tree is knowledge shared in light
Bringing solace to our souls unlit
It is the record of all but one right
The one to declare others unfit

It was in the twilight of the night
That I saw the tree as clear as day
And no matter what I felt was right
It stood and showed me the way

I have a wish for you to see
That tree in your early morning
Once you’ve watched its glory
Your life will truly be fitting

Harmony

Harmony disappears with every thought
It can't be real if you think about it
Yet how can you make it what it ought
Unless it lives in you with every heart bit

Harmony is an ancient mystery we seek
Trusting that in the end, when all is all
We'll all reach it, the strong, the meek
As we cross the ultimate wall

Harmony is but a fantasy we believe
Without it, we would experience folly
So one can't be blamed to live
As if it was the only thing to envy

Harmony is the only destiny we have
Not by choice but by ultimate design
A voice so real, so strong, so suave
We surrender, in ourselves we resign

Harmony is but you, but me
A truth so deep we can't forego
Yes with each breath we see
As we ignore what we can't know

The Hero's Journey

Starting in blood, the Hero's journey
Ends up in sacrifice, or life, everyday
Which is punishment, which victory
It depends on who you want to be

How do you tell who is a hero
In whose honour do you take a blow
Can you face trust and ignore your ego
Can you seek what someone else saw

Everyday sings the song of unknown heroes
Those for whom life comes uneasy
And yet with unmistaken faith, take it all
Once done, sleep on it, and restart it all

We all wish to meet one, to be one
But never let your passion run over
For wanting to can only close
The doors meant to be opened

Heroes are elusive, born of a simple life
They take the path that no one wants
Then one day, having arrived at the gate
They turn around to smiling flowers

They will leave us just like you and I
But for a glimpse in white eternity
We know them for who they truly are
One and only, many but few

Never claim to be a hero, for few truly are
Those who do so rarely prove their worth
While the true, rarely claims to be
So do, be one and keep it in your heart






That Old Apartment

Leaving behind souvenirs
In that old loved apartment
Standing alone without years
Gone is his old tenant

But he's left behind
His spirit, his essence
And never will it find
The light of its absence

For with each departure
We leave part of our soul
Only to gain, in the rupture
A new view making us whole

Many rooms with painted walls
Reminds of the passing life
That dreamt in all night falls
Cutting all hopes like a knife

Each strand of untouched time
In which we live till the end
Brings us closer to the chime
That rings for us till we mend


Soulless Life

Life without a soul brings sadness
To the joyless, the emotionless
For life without you I confess
Feels like hell, full, but pointless

Once given the soul taste
No one can truly haste
No matter how blessed
No matter the distaste

All soul chose their life
None in vain, or strife
Mainly to know passion
Their last fight, last bastion

Their is really no reason
For them to join this dominion
Unless in each dream or vision
We take life without derision

For like the butterfly free
Knowing its real destiny
We’re unaware if we are he
And he, conscious of this reality


Gate of Hell, Gate of Heaven

From the depth of Hell I descend
Rising in contradiction to Heaven
I feel myself no more
Why do either have gates
For you need not to enter
Both are in every second we leave
Both are in our hearts ever present
Neither master seek my soul
For it's mine to bring forth
With every choice unspoken
Written in stone unturned
Can I only ascend by rejecting
The one that offers so much
Accepting a truth not my own
I thirst for a knowledge forgotten
Dreaming of wisdom existing
Never lost in time but in our minds
Connected we can through our souls
I'm not ready to transcend my life
Yet see God in all time
The day will come when the Master
Will show me the path to myself
Until then I trust far beyond life
In an mixed representation of Truth
Where each one of us believes we fathom
Our uniqueness eternally connected
Thinking than in the others we serve
We reach closer to those skies
Yet unknowing that in tradition written
Whatever we do leads to glory
Pray for me at the Gate of Hell
Pray for me at the Gate of Heaven
For when these doors finally open
It is you, you will see coming in


Black & White

No issues are always so clear
That you can't find grey in them
Yet in all that you hold so dear
What's black & white you blame

In a reverse position taken
No morale can be so brilliant
As the strength forsaken
Of an ungodly argument

It is a slight common fallacy
That we all take for granted
As truth that our personality
Is what God commanded

Why then all discussions
Not destined to contribute
Result in the absolution
Of the one we pay tribute

In black & white one lives
Till life catches his breath
Then in a thought it forgives
Till we're born into death

Brightness

None so bright
As the sun
Yet all yearn
To be right

Who cares earns
A life defined
True and aligned
With he who learns

As wisdom burn
In heart alive
Before we arrive
We chose to run

Bright as a flash
Our lives tested
Bring the rested
To the cache

Brightness falls
In eyes blinded
To a truth aged
As each recalls


The Love Letter

Never show your love letters
To one who knows love not
He will trample what matters
And before soon forgot

Such words are secret
Coded in a life of another
Expressed without regret
In the passion of the hour

Blessed are you if you write
Such love, such music
To be lived with delight
Eternal beyond logic

Everyday practice your life
Just as you would write
Words of love to your wife
Or a poem for your knight

Love’s passion and decision
We all need to take side
One a flame, one a vision
Both united, so decide



We’re all Merchants

Trust the free hand that feeds
Nations of poor and rich alike
Regardless of all the deeds
Put on those they don't like

A need for food before destiny
Makes a limited world go round
And for many, the smell of honey
Turn their sad souls around

Silver and gold in itself not evil
Can easily take us from reality
For as soon as we are able
We turn time into money

Yet why that search stumbles
When riches fully accumulated
Bring us in full view of angels
Showing us what we planted

We’re all merchants,
In that you can trust
As you fall to judgments
Keep your soul off lust

Your Scent

It’s the pure love of an animal
Transcending time and reason
Bring our deeper self sensual
Unstopped by social convention

You lie in full length facing far
Smooth back breathing in a wave
Skin barren shining like a star
Glistening sweat we both crave

Lips approaching in certainty
Following endless legs till
The depth moist and free
Calls for nothing but a shrill

Touching curves in a caress
Your hips quivering in unison
The breasts of you, goddess
Pointing in sensual perfection

Eyes in eyes, our lips engaged
Each first contact of your scent
A perfume sensibly undamaged
Leaves us shivering yet content

Ending in a interlaced kiss
Of six and nine in rapture
Reaching first true bliss
Over and over, so pure

A Word

Can a word make a difference
When each kills or loves equally
A look, in the word's defense
Can be as promising, as deadly

But asking to have a word stands
An expression truly unloved
Hiding behind a veil that offends
As soon as it is mentioned

What about words unsaid
Do they carry such power
When in fact they are dead
In the heart of the thinker

The right word is a blessing
Yet so few want to speak it
Unwillingness or bad timing
We blame facing the killed spirit

Words evolve with our thoughts
To match a civilization unwilling
To accept its role in onslaughts
Of the next genius’ killing

A word of wisdom is truth
Orally told since ancient time
So many exists to sooth
Each life claiming ‘I am’

Chose your words carefully
They carry your soul to all
Never dream of beauty
Unless you can stand tall


The Knowledge

Know little, know too much, but know
For any knowledge is as above, so below
Trust that such savoir of who we are
Is a reflection of ourselves from afar

A link to our past, present and future
The desire to know is your banner
Carry it proudly in rain and snow
Bring it where no one else can go

To know more is simple, desire it
Feel it deeply until you know it
Without question or shallow doubt
It will make you what you are about

Start with data to be turned into info
Carry on till it is something you know
Then use it in life and make it wisdom
This is the wheel of a new born freedom

Once you’ve started to learn from life
Realise soon you can learn from strife
For booth good and bad are teachers
Pay specially attention to failures

Knowledge is a true beauty sublime
For its value is as yours as it is mine
And when we share it among others
We know that others is all that matters









It Doesn't Make Sense

It has finally downed on me
The world doesn't make sense
If it did, none would follow thee
Nothing would be truly intense

Logic and its enemy live closely
Misunderstood each fear the other
Yet with just one, we die slowly
For each is an unwilling brother

Seek one and you'll soon find
That they always come in pair
Isn't illogical that such a bind
Is what we need to be aware

Making sense is over rated
Who knows what we’re fated
Until such day, I fear sanity
Especially of those too brainy

Regal in a world senseless
Where each is so bless
That reason must be lost
At all known but one cost

It Doesn't Make Sense
And from now on hence
Let’s live with certainty
And love logic and folly

Beauty

Beauty in all myths lives
But in your heart captive
To thoughts eternal and old
That no one can uphold

Behind another’s shadow
With pity you follow
What others thought
Unaware, untaught

Your life alone is beauty
No other has your story
Stop and watch the soul
That made you whole

You long for recognition
In the crowd’s absolution
Yet you, without a mind
Can sadly be so blind

The beauty you seek
Is the domain of the weak
Ignore it and truly lust
For life or God if you must

For life will love you
Respect as we all do
Your inner beauty
That gift of deity

You are a goddess
And in your prowess
We’ll all love you too
Without further ado


Flash of Truth

Every second counts
In each, life flaunts
Are you ready to live it
Or are afraid to commit

In many such moments
A truth of all constants
Passes in a divine flash
Hitting our soul with a clash

Honestly, it’s hard to see
For we prefer the fallacy
Of a shivering reality
Sealed in familiar obscurity

Yet in your daily question
Some without any reason
You feel life blossoming
In you, you are becoming

No one knows when such a flash
Will come and your life wash
So live as if your tomorrow
Could only exist in the flow


The pain will go away

The pain will go away
This is your first tear

The pain will go away
It is not that severe

The pain will go away
An angel is near

The pain will go away
Your Mummy will cheer

The pain will go away
Your daddy is here

The pain will go away
We love you so dear

The pain will go away
Don't ever fear



Strange, weird even

It is strange, weird even
That we see our lives
Less deserving of heaven
Less deserving to survive

There is beauty in oddity
No one knows why for sure
But we’re attracted to folly
For hate or even pleasure

Life itself is truly strange
Mainly to the untrained eye
Without measure, love change
As it happens to all who fly

Having never met a sane one
It is hard to judge who’s right
To those wishing they’d won
Be driven by the desire for light

We’re all strange to another
So many views or opinions
Some attractive, some sadder
But all are relevant, all are options






Depth of a limited mind

In the depths of my limited mind
I see all that there is to see
Beauty, ugliness, and frankly
It’s the blind leading the blind

Possessing all knowledge there is
Yet knowing absolutely nothing
I live in all that joy can bring
Forgetting all real civilities

I am a fool you see, with ambition
To ridicule both learned and stupid
With wisdom truly rancid
And mold the world to my vision

And what I know you live daily
Trusting a shallow god
Whose perception is so broad
That no one can be happy

There is a gate we can all take
But who’s ready to close their past
Preferring to lie and have a blast
Rather than dealing with their mistake

I have depth in this mind of mine
And an expertise in ignoring it
Waking simply to what we admit
Is wrong but feels so divine

I might learn something today
Use it to confirm my ignorance
As you would when in trance
And yet knowing it’s the way



Believe

Believe in God almighty
And the power of the tree
For whatever your destiny
You write you prophecy

Of all the knowledge
Even one of usage
Trust in the privilege
To be in his image

Yet in us we forget
Thinking life is set
In a past we offset
To a future we regret

Many can teach you
To believe in you
But only one can do
As others would do unto

It is hard to believe
That we can achieve
What we can conceive
What we can perceive


People who smile

People who smile have a beauty
That those who don't, have not
Smiling to all brings true reality
To hearts who've lost the plot

People who smile are refreshing
Always a step ahead of all of us
Trusting in their instinct, believing
Life’s better when you’re gracious

People who smile see daylight
In ways we can only imagine
Perceiving with divine delight
Life in the scent of a jasmine

People who smile never fear
What the common man does
For to them the end is so clear
If we knew, we’d make noise

People who smile can never fade
For in our heart they’ll forever be
Giving us solace we want to evade
As such blessing makes us too happy

People who smile are within reach
They cross our path against our will
And deep inside we know they teach
All to smile and to stand still


The Dichotomy of Good and Evil

How do you cope with the constant dichotomy
The will to do good and ability to be evil
Wrapped into one soul, one mind preferably
With little room for anything but being on the level

These two sides of the same lives unwritten
For destiny belongs to those who take it
Yet the choice of the path unbeaten
Is yours, is mine, even if we never meet

Suffering in silence, keeping the shame alive
We fight good, we fight evil, without thinking
Our hearts dying to see their end arrive
For then the questions will start dying

Of the seven we all fall guilty without prejudice
Each powerful enough to destroy all hope
Yet we let each one in turn face the justice
Of a mind that aims to cut our only rope

Good and Evil are forever brothers in arms
Strangling the last bastion of life we have
Constantly destroying all with their charms
Giving us hope, and yet making us starve

There is irony in such an immemorial fight
But are you truthfully ready to accept it
For it will shatter your very birthright
I have to admit, neither truly exist



Delayed Gratification I

Delaying gratification
Even for no reason
Than to enjoy later
What we’re after

Waiting for pleasure
In a minute, in an hour
Seems hedonistic
What makes you tick?

As a child with passion
All I needed was action
Now and never later
Or it’ll be hard to capture

As time brought reason
Hurting that notion
That to be happy
I must behave selfishly

Now refraining daily
From a life ungodly
Feeling often elated
Yet not as the departed

Delay gratification
A true life canon
One rule to live by
Even without a why


Delayed Gratification II

Delaying gratification
In itself a simple joy
Few have the reason
Preferring to annoy

Physical or spiritual
In this life or the next
Pleasure is eternal
Often used as a pretext

Chose the experience
And liberate your soul
You’re without defense
When facing it whole

So go forth and trust
With a clear mind
That this ancient thrust
Belongs to all mankind



Light of Reason

Can the light of reason be trusted
When the spirit is so strong
Neither holds life undefeated
Till both accept to be wrong

Logical emotions abound
In lives mimicking nature
Stunned by a truth profound
Each a past of its future

When did we see that facts
Plain, strong and purely white
Never explained why we act
Against all we believe to be right

We think we act rather sensibly
Each time we destroy another
Aiming to please egoistically
The façade that makes us braver

Never rely on reasoning alone
The chant of a siren long dead
Who voice doubt has sown
In a heart that all souls dread


Who’s who

This life wasn’t designed
For angry unpleasant idiots
Who in wisdom are resigned
To act has forgotten helots

We are one among all
Unique yet unimportant
Unless we walk tall
Claiming what’s dormant

Possessing all there is
In a soul and a mind
We prefer to appease
Gods who are blind

It would take little
To express our power
Given by an angel
At the birth hour

For this you must search
Your talent, your gift
Or be left in the lurch
Passing a life swift

Who is who is the list
Composed of all souls
Who know they exist
To lift-up their goals




Each Tree, Each Rock

Under each tree, each rock
Sits a little angel, little devil
A member of its own flock
Leading us to be beautiful

There is a spirit in all things
A force stronger, weaker
Destined to pull strings
Turning man's affairs blur

You don't see them really
But their strength is felt
In all that you blindly see
As you make your life melt

They were here before us
Yet we live as this was ours
Being wise, they don't fuss
Knowing we're short in hours

Nature is our teacher
In all that we need
Helping us to go deeper
In all that we bleed


Mission

Why don't I know why I am here
Can't we born with our mission
Why do we need to learn to fear
To establish ourselves within reason

We come naked in a world unknown
With a spirit tainted by a past forgotten
Yet when life comes to be full blown
We start again with thoughts unforgiven

What would life be if all its souls
Would be aware without questions
Living, not searching to be whole
Being the light, not sinking into oblivion

Are you jealous of the child so clear
That he knows which road is his
While we struggle and die a martyr
To a cause blown by the breeze

Oh, I which to know my path
Without seeking a darken light
That a lost mind brings in wrath
Punishing all in a last fight

It is written that to know your mission
You need to know your passion
And in the end, it's the reason
That to know such, make a decision

Pure Derision

Is everything so serious
That we'd be so devious
Why don’t we let things roll
Enjoy life and have a ball

Where is the real balance
Between reality and trance
When we live a life pious
Turning us into a beast furious

The reality of all logic
Is that time is frantic
Never ending its course
Taking all as a source

Trying to be pure ourselves
Even if few know themselves
Feeling lost at every turn
Yet each a chance to learn

Life is nothing like we think
Yet in the mind hides the link
Connecting us to all there is
Shaping shapeless destinies

Live all days in pure derision
Meet all and make a connection
For once that second is gone
We’ll all be second to none


Love Blind

In each thought I undress
Your soul to my mind
What would God bless?
As we make love blind

By whatever name
A feeling never lost
Buried deep in blame
At whatever the cost

Love all and always
There is nothing else
Not the end of days
Could a heart caress

What do you see
When love dies
But the humility
Of tears and cries

Love is a decision
So choose wisely
Make it a mission
To love blindly

We Know Less

We know less today than we did before
Yet we’re halfway to bring it to the fore
Unashamed of a past we ignore
It is time to let that knowledge pour

Why did we forget what we knew?
Unaware that for each word we argue
A trace of wisdom paid its due
To a kind that regrets what was true

Most believe that we know so much today
‘Forget the science and folklore of yesterday
They were from minds mostly laid astray
By superstition and beliefs’ they say

Yet every time my mind expends
I feel a source that life transcends
Something taking me to all ends
Letting my true self ascends

In each of these moments of vision
The old knowledge enters into friction
With a reality that gives little option
To stories and dreams of passion

But to deny or keep on living as we do
Does not erase what was once a virtue
None can subdue the Akashic clue
Especially if life we want to renew

We know less today than we ever did
That much is true, none can forbid
That you should trust all but the id
Known by none but a kid

Fleeting Moment

We met again on a fleeting moment
Destiny's hand or careless thought
Brought us together, rather silent
A pair of stranger than neither sought

Longing to connect and explore our lives
Counting minutes till they reached the hour
Hesitating hope, what if the heart arrives?
But for you, searching is a lone endeavour

You are someone who's only fault, if any
Is to notice, reach out and disappear
Can a relationship be formed in envy?
Or is short term loneliness the true fear?

One can never know what you think
And the question arises in the same bit
Do you know what makes you click?
Or believe life to be a knowing spirit?

That fleeting moment is now long gone
I’ll never know what you felt that day
Or if those hours seemingly withdrawn
Will ever happen again someday

More Beautiful

Hate's never more beautiful
Than the day you stand accused
Of something you’ve lived in full
Knowing that you’ve been bruised

Love’s never more beautiful
Than when overcome with sorrow
We realise that to be truthful
We need others more than they know

Life’s never more beautiful
Than in yourself you trust
Forgetting what’s awful
Tasting what’s purest

Death’s never more beautiful
Than when none remember it
Moving like a born old angel
Into oblivion as death we cheat

You are never more beautiful
Than when you know who you are
Seeing in you what’s crucial
Knowing we’re of the same star

Forest of Errors

Each error that we make
Is like a tree with roots deep
Keeping us grounded, awake
In the moment, yet asleep

Keep your heart open to errors
Know that when you stop trying
You are invisible as all traitors
Slaves to their souls dying

Life is in the errors we learn
Knowing full well that we yearn
For success, love and respect
In as much as we can expect

My mind is a forest of errors
Unaware that so many trees
Aren’t at the centre of horrors
But beauty that life frees

Each defining an experience
But none alone define me
All simply part of the dance
That brings me to reality


Wrongly Accused

I stand wrongly accused
With not reason to escape
Facing a crowd amused
By those who play to wait

I’ve been accused before
Of deeds truly forgotten
Often guilty at the core
Accepting, denying often

Yet there is nothing worse
To be found guilty wrongly
Knowing that such curse
Comes from a soul ugly

Alas, to be in such position
Positioned by prior acts
Forcing an unfair decision
Despite the latest facts

Worse still would it be
If I accused wrongly
Another just like me
Leaving me guilty


You can never go home

You can never go home
Words so true, so real
Even an author phantom
Still knows how we feel

Crossing paths I once knew
Remembering the same corner
Seeing with a different view
Hard to believe we’re one sinner

Here is the road our mothers took
It was as real as the picture is to me
A moment in time, a glance, a look
Warm yet frozen beyond all eternity

Here is my house, my father’s love
Empty of promises yet standing
I sense all the seconds far above
Any pitiful sadness of its reality

These are stones that no one wants
The home I belong to is simply me
With time that my family still haunts
Deep inside our own true trilogy

You can never go home
So the wise believe
But what we truly own
Is what we truly live


Comedy of Errors

Aim to control your universe
Simply ask for what you need
And it will bend to your verse
As long as you know your creed

For you see, it is precise and orderly
Everything is in its place, always
And for those who wake early
Life cannot cease to amaze

Beware though not to hurt
Others even an unknown
For whatever your subvert
Will never leave you alone

Beware also not to ignore it
For all days will seem wasted
Remain upbeat, join the elite
Of the tested and the trusted

Never forget a truth so basic
That life is itself a comedy
Where an error, if truly unique
Shows to all that you’re ready



The Shallow of Death

Enter my domain he who life wants
Will you dare realise your true self
Dying to old habits or each flaunts
As the shallow of death is in itself

Death into life, life into death
Circling each second, each soul
As a phantom’s stinking breath
Hovering around us whole

Why fear what we don’t know
When it was said before time
We would disappear and follow
Into ourselves, hence the crime

Fear nothing but the dogma
That teaches hate as love
As from Alpha to Omega
All is the same as above

In the shallow of death we meet
For none alone is truly another
Living the same life as we greet
God in every action we bother


My Grandparents

They were here before us
Learning life as we should
Never faltering and thus
Teaching us as they could

Their thoughts and tears
Live in us, happy or sad
Washing away all fears
We never thought we had

I carry them deep in me
In words gentle and awful
They were human and godly
And now, simply beautiful

Why do call them grand
And treat them with disdain
Ignoring their life bland
As there is nothing to gain

Wise beyond thoughts
Knowing life as itself
They pass into naught
Before we know our self

I know they are here
In every child’s laughter
In each thought so dear
Yet I miss them only after


Chemistry

Chemistry is the start
Nothing happens without it
What are you looking for?
What's beyond it?
Where do souls touch?
Can you command it?
Once you’ve answered these
You’ll know love as it is
In life and pain
In hate and passion
It’s often one sided
But works better in pair
With no one to blame
You are however bland
Till you’ve met a soul
Whose resonance is yours
And in every beat of your mind
You’ll feel truth in your heart
Unless what you felt
Disappears as you go
Leaving them untouched
And you in heart-rehab
Unaware that love
Is better in your past
Thank never in your future
Be as you are, whole in all
For you can’t fake chemistry
Neither can you trigger it
It comes when it wants
It goes even faster
But at every turn
The truth is simple
You need to be alive
Fully in the game
To find it true
Leading to love
Or deep insanity
Either way you prefer
Always go beyond
You and I



The Artist

Few lives will ever touch you
Like the fate of the artist
Who in colours of songs knew
Shows what it is to be a purist

In a song, they’ll paint our lives
In deeper meaning than we can
Aiming simply to feel alive
As we live without a plan

With a few strokes of colours
They bring us to be others
Whose dreams and closures
Mark the sand with our prayers

We all should aspire to release
The artist that we all must be
If in our fate we trust with ease
Then let your talent be free

Why kill the spark before it’s born
With poor attempts to please all
Don’t you know you can’t forewarn
A dying talent waiting to be whole


Forgive the lie

Forgive the lie meant to hurt you
As I know not where it came from
With such thoughts ugly and taboo
Baring witness to what is torn

A lie of any colours, even white
Can only come back to haunt
Those who started the fight
Those who know not their want

When is a lie acceptable then?
To save the child forced to die?
To save the genius from madmen?
Or simply never, don’t ask me why

In a dogmatic world, black and white
No one knows if lies or truth rule
No priest, no man, no knight
Owns it, yet each is so cruel

There is no excuse, you see
To forgive the lie we flaunt
Baring your soul politely
To a desire we want

Is forgiving so divine
That few truly do so
For a life truly sublime
Wouldn’t you be a hero?


Pointless

Nothing in life is so pointless
That all will claim it to be so
In a moon, a sun, so restless
Each wanting to be their hero

Yet there are many such time
Where our action are a little less
Irrelevant when in your shrine
You are the God, the Goddess

Some knows in their heart
Life can seem a pointless path
That without first to depart
We would be but a farce

There is not point to argue less
Than what we’re truly here for
To change the lives of those we bless
To pay respect to all forevermore

So here is the end, the beginning
In which each lives to their fullest
With each road a mere crossing
To a point where you can only rest

And the love you give in all that
Is the gift you receive in return
For a bit of trust and a chat
Regardless of the point you earn



Disappointment

He who disappoints rarely knows
For such self-knowledge, it is said
Will teach you to reap what one sows
And show what you truly dread

To live with disappointment is a gift
For unless you leave your heart open
You'll never know the love swift
As friends, lovers and family deepen

Fear, if you've never felt this way
As you do not love at all
You hide behind a life all day
And make loneliness a call

Disappoint if you must but avoid
Blaming the other for such mistake
It's not their fault if you're so devoid
Never to see, never to ache

Best though to live by your word
Even if such choice is your pain
Than to break a bond by the sword
And die in ignorance, in vain





In the Balance

In the balance between good and evil
We choose to be fairly undecided
Chasing the thrill of the first missal
Lost in the thought of the full blooded

Each act, each dream we transmit
Balances between two worlds
One we can barely admit
The other, at us hurled

Yet there is beauty in choosing
As we are an animal of the kind
Preferring destiny to killing
The idea that we could be blind

Should we live in the middle?
Would that be a life balance
Never to experience the riddle
Never to experience the dance

I hold your life in the balance
For without me you wouldn’t be
A without you I have no essence
I need you, to be able to see
Shouting

Nothing can be solved by shouting
Yet it often feels like a release
Good and bad in a single voicing
Satisfying the bringer of disease

But if done alone on a mountain
Screaming a your lungs' top
With no one to ever blame
Feel the strength of the yawp

Then, and only then, shout
Let it all go into the breeze
Bring it all like a devout
Let your soul be at ease

But never shout at a loved one
For both will feel such regrets
One, to have killed the swan
The other, that you ever met

Shouting is an inner gift
Bringing the dream into life
Letting all souls go adrift
Away from the sea of strife

Isis

Of earth shallow and deep
Stands the Goddess of old
Without tears, we weep
For Isis so fragile, so cold

She’s our mother, our home
Blessed in all nature’s beauty
We can’t live, we can’t own
What we are in earth’s destiny

Oh Isis, take my hand
Show me your ways
In every wheat strand
As in all flower ablaze

Know me in every step
As I know you in all days
Trust me when you wept
The loss of Sundays

Let my soul rest in you
Forever one in all
All of you will not do
If we don’t block the fall

Isis, sister, mother, lover
Child of the single spark
A moment in strange hour
Take us away from the dark

Sail on

Of earth, fire, wind and water
We sail far from the truth
That to resist the sad hour
We drift away from youth

Such beauty in earth’s end
Never reaching its limits
As you get it in your hand
You’re back to your habits

The wind is in your soul
Softly speaking, lamenting
Wanting to make you whole
Even against God willing

In the circle of true earth
Lies each of our destinies
Source of so many births
Life of so many glories

Sail on, never look back
Extend, expand your horizon
Never consider the track
That takes away your demon



Sail Forth

Sail far from your horizon
To the lands of dreams
Is it true reality or fiction
As nothing is what it seems

Sail the globe once at least
See how it’s all different
Even make your own list
Learn why we’re all brilliant

Sail far from a life ignorant
Where you know it all
Discover what’s blatant
Before it leads to your fall

Sail with so many hearts
Seeking what is real
Take away the charts
That make you kneel

Sail, go forth and regret
To not have done it before
Why did you wait so late
To bring your soul to the fore

Sail among the sky and sea
The same colour rules all
It never was what you see
It’s what you seek, that’s all

Ignorance

So little do we know
Yet we ignore the fact
That for all to grow
We need to act

Ignoring that truth, I swear
Is not good for all life
As we ignore, we bear
The fruits of bloody strife

Ignoring ignorance kills
As each passing thought
Let a poorly set freewill
Avoids what it ought

But how do we know
If we are ignorant
Will you tell me so?
Or is it blatant?

Learning is a right
Squandered by most
While others fight
Ignoring their faults

Let ignorance be
A word we forget
As we finally see
It’s not hard to brake


To Kill a Crow

In the ascent of the sun
Following the daily path
A crow stood, didn’t run
And died without wrath

He, she, now lives in me
Part of my sold destiny
The folly of his psyche
Is now my cross indelibly

The crow is but a symbol
Of uncertain, dual meaning
Whether you believe in an apple
Or seek your spiritual being

But the crow in this story
Is personal, he is mine
As I am now his, for eternity
Two lives in the same line

Never was it written
That today we would kill
One another, then smitten
In lives dynamically still

This is not luck bad or good
For his short life means more
Than superstition as it stood
In front of me, proud forevermore


Mixed Feelings

When do you like a soul
When do you like not
Feelings mixed, not whole
As in someone you forgot

Can you please everyone
Should you even bother
Do you focus on anyone
Or on you, would you rather

We meet so many in life
To choose a true friend
A God, husband or wife
Let your heart ascend

In each such relation
Feelings are often mixed
Lost in the short elation
For ourselves we fixed

There is but enough time
To focus on one trilogy
Made, it’s rather sublime,
Of God, friends and family


Love Springs

Love springs when you least expect it
Look for it, seek it and it will elude you
There is no explanation for such logic
Yet we all know it to be universally true

Love is a fountain without beginning
It ends never, none can own its charms
It’s a siren eternally blessed in seducing
All that comes and fall into its arms

At least once, you must have met
Thinking this was the real world
Yet as the door closed on a sunset
You must have in life been hurled

Love is the bed-sister of pain
If you let it destroy your core
Be yourself yet never be the same
And the dawn Goddess you’ll adore

Love springs when you least expect it
Showing earthly beauty in all its glory
And if one day should you show merit
It will be you that she will marry

Lyrics

Listen to the lyrics of some of them
And you'll never be the same
They speak of a time of despair
When joy could be found everywhere

Songs are a gift of the God unknown
A present that saves all lovers forlorn
A sound celestial in all its blessings
Giving hope, thanks to one who sings

Yet in the those magical minutes
We forget that a hurt soul disputes
All that we stupidly take for granted
Before our hearts stand arrested

Words give life to a few notes
That each soul faithfully emotes
Given entirely to a self higher
Than the one in one another

Lyrics in their fake simplicity
Are the birth of our reality
Played over and over again
When from ourselves we refrain


No longer friends

We were friends once, but no longer
We were four, always together
Each different but trusting the other
We knew the town in all its power

Then the day came, uninvited
One had to go, all saddened
Then the second, departed
Until two were left, unwanted

We were brothers yet unaware
That such link hurts those who dare
Open a vein, use blood and swear
That nothing can ever that link tear

The scar is not as deep
As the pain felt when I weep
On my lost brothers' wit
Never to be seen at the sit

We’re no longer friends
As a shooting star would end
We live apart, never to defend
The bond that had to end

Talking too much

Can one truly talk too much
There’s so much to be said
Can two listen as such
That neither will be afraid

We often talk with so little
Neither wit nor thought
Can save us in battle
If we forget what was taught

We wait for the baby to speak
Then wonder if he’ll ever stop
For children love to seek
The fable world of Aesop

Then we ask the question
Unaware of the lost reason
That we once had the notion
All could be solved in discussion

Speak, it is your birthright
Give your opinion to the stars
Every thought, even when right
Enjoy developing your own scars

Don’t take others with you

Kill yourself if you must
But others do not take
If you’ve lost life’s lust
Do it alone, for our sake

In the act, see no shame
For it must be courage
As we take the blame
For your poor message

Yet, isn’t it the coward
Who stops dead in its path
Rather than move forward
Afraid of his own wrath

Neither is right nor wrong
It is the way of a soul
Deciding it’s not strong
And moves to its next role

And here it the only rule
End your life as it came
Alone, for you are cruel
If the life of another you claim


Do no wrong

Do no wrong, a law so pure
That few really comprehend
For the reason to endure
In it you must stand

In a lover's eyes, the other
Can never do any wrong
Reality simply doesn't matter
When feelings are so strong

Yet to live in such a principle
You must know the difference
Between chaos and the simple
As nothing's left to chance

But what is wrong, what is right
If what you think counters mine
As we unwillingly enter into a fight
With the same thought divine

Do no wrong, a simple law
Given to us to cherish
As we ignore the ego
That would make us perish


Sub Rosa

Can you keep a secret?
Knowing you'd regret
The decision as soon
The sun meets the moon

There was once a rose
Whose five petals arose
To show us the way
That takes us away

Our earth shadow
Won’t let us know
The meaning of God
In this simple abode

In a sense of five
One less to be alive
The rose explodes
As life itself decodes

Believe in both brothers
For their will be others
Ready to teach sub rosa
As love ignores the dogma



Loosing a friend by choice

How can the loss of a friend by choice
Hurt so much, cutting deep within my soul
How can I let pain have a voice?
I’m bored confused, yet enjoying it all

Lost a friend today, a friendship rather
To no fault but sheer ignorance
That an opened door like no other
Can shut faster than silence

No more friends. It's simpler
A new motto for the happy
Staying alone with no other
Never to say you’re sorry

Within second of that thought
We can all see the fallacy
That for others we have fought
So true friends we need, absolutely

Killing a friendship is like dying
We turn around and think
Why on earth did a small sting
Made us change in a blink





I've broken all commands

I've broken all commands
Used up all sins
And no one can tell me
If who I am is bad or wrong
For everyone that judges me
Has sins to account and attune for
There is never been a better time
To express one's fault
To die for a cause unsacred
At the altar of pain, of sanity
Where few stay but all languish

I've broken all commands
There is nothing to retain me
No one to hold me back
And no one to hurt anymore
Today, each step is but forward
Unable to see what was yesterday
Its value gone forever
And no knowledge gained from it

I've broken all commands
Rejoicing in the choice
Never despair in mistakes
They come, they go
Often to realise
That such idiotic behaviour
Was a blessing
Often but not always disguised
In truth, I fear making none
Living a life so dull
In which I can never say
I've broken all commands



You shall be known

You shall be known by your questions
And how well you pay attention
To each thought, each word
As you live by a pen, by a sword

You shall be known by your thoughts
Are they helping the one they ought?
Or each increase your separation
Form the divine, from your mission

You shall be known by your intentions
Whether they stay or lead all to action
For nothing can be worth it today
If you don't do what you say

You shall be known by your friends
Even those whose life doesn't depend
On you to stand proud till the end
Safe with head deep in the sand

You shall be known by each mistake
Whether they make you awake
For with each fork in the road
You’ll see the prince in the toad


Your Philosophy

Loose yourself in your own thoughts
Never let anyone in who shouldn't be
In this mirage of life we thought
A perfection of others we never see

Is what you say written in deeds
Or do you excel in empty oration
For all words are but the seeds
Of a thousand and one questions

Develop your own philosophy
As you ensure it’s never stale
But if you are aiming for glory
Your thoughts will be to no avail

Is your culture rooted in time
Or an excerpt of a minute
Each moment rather sublime
Aimed to never stay put

Each man before you
Thought what you know
You have to be of value
To all and you also




Unwritten, Unspoken

Say no more
All has been said
Write no more
All has been played

There is wisdom
In what's unwritten
And no boredom
In what's unspoken

For a simple word
Men died in trove
In the absurd
Of the lies they wove

Each of us know
Not all can be said
For we all grow
When we are dead

Say no more
All has been said
Write no more
All has been played


Controlled Destiny

Do you believe in your star
A dark single point of light
With the power to take you far
Or do you wait and sit tight

Whether destiny controls you
As you decide your own fate
There is nothing you can do
Till you reframe your mindset

Can your life be in the sky
Unable to change as you go
Slave to a master's why
Pupil to nothing that is so

Yet we are fools to believe
That we control anything
For every thought is the sieve
Of a light that needs to sing

And here lies the beauty
We must aim to control
What none can see
To release our soul


Lux et Cognitio

Light is true knowledge
Just as in each sun ray
Resides a seed, a pledge
Of each season we pray

Knowledge is the light
Of each soul's reason
Overwhelmingly bright
Incapable of treason

For every idea you learn
Stand a future given
For reason we yearn
Till we take to heaven

Give light to every soul
There is not truer calling
As each turns into its role
Aware of their blessing

There is a paradox yet
To know, you can't learn
Lest you truly forget
And be ready to listen


Thinking Alone

Sometimes alone, never lonely
Thinking of things otherworldly
Most of them rather silly
Aiming to simply be

Using foolishness or logic
Thinking can be dramatic
Thoughts healthy or sick
Nothing’s real, all’s cryptic

We can never think alike
Not all will you ever like
Let your ego take a hike
Never to be the first to strike

We can hold evil and good
Doing more than we should
Thinking less than we could
Never to reach sainthood

You can only think alone
Whether young or grown
From birth to your stone
Your thoughts are your own



I don't have the will

I don't have the will
To ignore how I feel
To let another's reason
Erase my passion

I don't have the will
To remain bland, still
In the face of time
Killing all in their prime

I don't have the will
To make an evil deal
Simply to ease the pain
Of an act I could refrain

I don't have the will
To stand here and chill
When children cry
As we let them die

I don't have the will
To be anything but real
For to be your friend
I have to be till the end



Think, Speak, Act

Think
For there is no greater truth

Speak
For there is no greater gift

Act
For there is no greater reality




I sat there

I sat there all afternoon
Chocked, distraught
I sat there all afternoon
More alive than I ought

I said nothing to no one
And felt their lives passing
I said nothing to no one
Some aware, some dying

I look into their eyes
And saw nothing I knew
I look into their eyes
And felt a distance anew

I ignored the foolish few
Who thought I’d cared
I ignored the foolish few
For none would have dared

I lost myself and just sat
For reality needs no action
I lost myself and just sat
As my life’s at a junction

I’ll do it all over again
For now I know
I’ll do it all over again
As I reap what I sow


Emotions

To be a fool with emotions
To succumb with no reason
A dent in the face of time
A tear all but sublime

Our first breath is in pain
Ravaged by the slain
Of a timeless state
As we enter our fate

Our first feeling drives us
Makes us slaves and thus
To feel is to trust
That you are the wisest

Surely you might say
There has to be a day
When we will control
All but our soul

Yet look in our past
See that nothing last
But for what we feel
Today and we’re still

Please, never forget
Happy or upset
Leave the door ajar
As you emote, you are


Frozen Wall

It stood erect on a hill top
Once strong and forbidding
To barbarians put a stop
To its villagers protecting

Now standing open, fallen
A shadow of its glory
Stuck in time, frozen
A sad but lost memory

Built in strength for love
Stone by stone, by men free
It brought pride in strove
To all living in drudgery

It failed to a different cross
To beliefs not unknown
Cursed or blessed, in chaos
Like a belief we condone

Look in and see the past
Look out and the future lies
You will not be the last
The wall has made wise




Lies and liars

Does the liar lies
If the truth is his
Unbound by ties
That is our disease

Yet what is a lie
A truth unknown
For which you die
Before you've grown

Why be a liar
Is it by choice
Or to go higher
To change his voice

As for you hear
Are you better
Or do you fear
The flatterer

Try not to lie
Cause you can
On you, rely
Be a freeman

I know a liar
One I might be
Never wiser
Always friendly

But if you must
Do so for others
Kill the lying thrust
Don’t let them bother



Can't Resist

I can't resist talking nonsense
Nor to tell what's on my mind
Between the two I prance
Not knowing if I am blind

There is beauty in giving in
To five senses entrenched
Souls and mind in between
Where nothing is far fetched

Taught to obey the laws
Aimed to make us civil
Saying nothing of our flaws
As we become a god, a devil

Who can resist the folly
Of words and songs
As we cry to the beauty
That says nothing's wrong

Yet to resist is divine
As we know that love
Is in the bread, the wine
As we look in us above


Regress

One questions puzzles me more than most
Do we know now more than we did before?
Or do we spend the time as ghosts
Seeking what was once to the fore?

Imagine that today in fact we regress
Moving away from all there was to know
That each idea we take as progress
Takes us away from the true flow

The more we learn, the less we know
Seems to be the curse of all who learn
Who spend a lifetime in a path narrow
Realising they'll never reach what they yearn

Enjoy the irony that our lives seems to bring
We claim to be giants among lesser species
Yet we can't reach the simple chaotic harmony
Our lesser brothers experience without wishes

We are regressing as long as we believe
That we can learn our way out of this
While the real truth of adam and eve
Lies in simply being aware of what is

Be Careful of What You Know

Be careful of what you know
As it closes the doors of perception
Your ability to see true beauty
Requires the risk of unknowing

Knowledge is a true miracle
No one loses when it's shared
It is the source of all debacles
When ignored by he who dared

Yet we know less than we believe
And more than we dreamed off
We seem to forget how to live
If at the other’s power we scoff

It is a true alluring siren
Offering the promise of fate
To each who forgets and blame
Instead of owning their weight

But the biggest danger of all
Is to think we know what's right
And we realise, not until our fall
We know nothing worth to fight


The Truth Lies

The truth lies
Never saying what we want
But what is

The truth hurts
Not all of those who use it
Not even most

The truth seeks
You and I in all days
And finds nothing

The truth spares
Those who kill for it
And the others too

The truth screams
To be let free for all time
And hides in our heart

The truth thinks
Just as long as we love
We’ll be free

The truth knows better
Than to let us decide what is right
As we pass judgment

The truth lies
Never saying what we want
But what is

Give it all

Give it all whether you have it or not
Give it all whether she loves you or not
But for the love of God, give it all
Life's truly too short for half measures
A warm heart is simply not enough
Have passion. Or don't
If you don't, don't do
Let it go and seek
Seek for what makes you alive
Seek what few truly understand
That the life that you deserve is in you
Waiting to spring, waiting to turn you on

And this the point where most falter

Once you know what you're alive for
Give it all
Do what you have to do, alone if you must
With friends if you dare, with a loved one if you can
Never stop, never let another still your path
Never let your fear slow down what you are
And never let a god tell you what to think

No one but you will ever know if these words impact you
But they represent my whole philosophy
I have little to give you for my life is my own
But these words to burn you:

Give it all


You're the one you're looking for

You're the one you're looking for
No one else is who you are
Whether this life you hate or adore
It's the one that will take you far

We have so little time to live
So why change another
When all you need is forgive
And let go of the anger

Very few of us know it
But all we do is seek
And as you finally commit
In Godliness you'll peak

In your instincts trust
As much as your ego
As each moment adjusts
The path of your own flow

No one will ever think
In the way you deserve
If from mistakes you shrink
Don't expect to serve

You're the one you're looking for


Too Many

Too many screams
Too many dreams

Too many words
Too many swords

Too many reasons
Too many treasons

Too many possessions
Too many seasons

Too many people
Too many temples

Too many sights
Too many lights

Too many sounds
To many pounds

Too many feelings
Too many ceilings

Is that horrible? Is that wonderful?


Simple Truth

It's a simple truth
It is who we are
Known since youth
Need not look far

It is so simple
That many died
Asking the devil
To let them slide

Truth be told
Can never be
To be so bold
Will bring envy

Already aware
Of its power
To ask and dare
Shortens the hour

A truth so simple
None can know
Not even an angel
Not even the ego



The Voice

There are voices all around
But only one that is sound
The one you hear in your head
Telling you what has to be said

Do you hear a morning voice
That offers a different choice
A small word or a full speech
Listen, it's trying to reach

Don't be fooled, everyone
In our soul, we all have one
Whether to it you listen
Or its beauty you chasten

Pay attention for it is you
Who will pay what is due
The voice's only counsel
Is to show you are able

Yet we simply ignore
Its advice for we adore
Our mind in a sound
Where love abounds


Opinion

Keep you opinion to yourself
Yet share it with all you meet
They might put in on a shelf
Or use it to be complete

Do you have a friend
Who shares his opinion
On how you should fend
In life, love and passion

We all have such a soul
Who admires his views
Sharing beyond his role
With sole aim to confuse

While others truly matter
What you think is divine
Not worse, nor better
Than those you outshine

So what about you?
What is your opinion?
What would you argue?
If you talked without caution

Fear the Inner Journey

Fear the Inner Journey
Full of knights and dragons
Loosing and winning daily
Against your inner demons

Know that to touch God
We need to look inside
A thought rather odd
By which we must abide

So take the journey
And face your fears
Unless you're a phony
Who hides behind tears

It takes a mighty heart
To launch in the unknown
Very few actually start
To scared to be alone

Yet the path is never lonely
No matter which way we turn
Facing the ugly, the beauty
Of a mind learning to discern

So fear the inner journey
As it's the only pure way
To turn away from the baby
Who would rather stay

To Those Who Die

To those who die I say calmly
Remember us who stay behind
As we in hell are just too busy
Just as you were, unkind, blind

To those alive I say calmly
Remember not those who die
But think of their beauty
In a way that makes you cry

To those in between I say calmly
Choose now or forever be quiet
For very few are that unlucky
That another decides their fate

To those born today I say calmly
Live as if you were immortal
Whether as an eagle or a bee
Stay away from being normal

And to those who die daily
Never remains calm in adversity
Decide or find who you are
And embrace the bizarre

It Doesn't Matter

It doesn't matter what you believe
If you will never do nothing about it

It doesn't matter what you think
If you haven't thought it through

It doesn't matter what you say
If you don't believe in it

It doesn't matter what you do
If you don't have a purpose

It doesn't matter who you know
If no one remembers who you are

It doesn't matter who you are
If you don't love yourself

It doesn't matter where you are
If you don't know how you got there

It doesn't matter where you're going
If you're not aiming for the horizon

It doesn't matter what this poem says
If you don’t believe it

But most of all...

It doesn't matter



Fallen Flowers

Fallen flowers in the sunset
Memories of a time to be
Have we grown out of life yet?
Disinterested in what we see

A fallen tree once told me
Cry not, for this is the day
To create a new ancestry
As I live life's way

The majestic bird once shot
Wonders not of its future
But of his family’s pot
And the fate they'll endure

The fox hunted for pleasure
Wonders of our stupidity
Accepts its fate of the hour
One day it will be his glory

And a fallen man once declared
Forgive them for they know not
As the day break on us crossed
We know less than we thought


Stop Judging

Stop judging we're told
Is the only way to live
Yet from young to old
We judge all as thieves

They rob us of ourselves
Of the time spent on us
As each of us delves
In a fame truly bogus

How dare they steal minutes?
Better spent in self pity
How dare they, the brutes
Ignore our depraved reality

Truly, they should realise
Few actually know me
As my importance defies
Even the soul I carry

It's my time, don't judge
I waste it as I please
As I focus on the urge
To be happy, to be at ease


Can't tell you

I can't tell you what to do
Nor should you do the same
I can however give you a clue
As to what constitute our shame

I can’t tell you what to think
Even if I think I know better
For we’ll never be in sync
Unless we accept the other

I can’t tell you what to love
For this is your own destiny
No one can, even from above
As you’ve been given liberty

I can’t tell you where to go
Even if I know my own path
Don’t ask. I really can’t, even so
I might face your own wrath

I can’t tell you what to believe
Only you know your faith
Whether you’re happy or grieve
Choose, before all see your wraith



What would I give

What would I give to see him so
Proud of the feast, among friends
Surrounded by a pagan glow
Being alive in all weekends

He loved me. That I’ll always know
For so he said everyday till the end
And as life decided to forego
His soul keeps on making amend

I remember the days when we fought
For an idea than no one remembers
Yet to us, it was the goal of the naught
That made us ancient secret members

And for a rose unknown to all
We claimed a legacy without end
A power to host till the fall
The idea that all are God-sent

I loved him. That I’ll always know
Regardless of ghostly faults
As the state of the widow
Became too hard to exalt

What would I give to walk again
With a father that was here for me
Yet to be a giant among men
I better do the same for Marie


Your Cross

There is a cross out-there
You were born to bear
No one knows where
But it is yours to wear

Be proud for very few
Know what they must do
Lost to what is true
Seeing nothing through

Among ideas you must seek
Even if they believe you weak
For what’s in you is unique
So tell the truth, speak

Once found you must pray
For the strength to stay
On a course not your way
And we’ll meet you halfway

This is the cross’ message
That you must have courage
To seek and pay homage
To what will give you passage



Mad

The world is truly mad
To not think as I do
But what's really sad
I don't even know you

Who can claim to be sane
When we let others die
Why focus on fame
When so many sigh

I thought I was mad
As I chose to be free
It turned out to be a fad
That only I could see

Madness is a sane choice
And the beauty of it all
Is we can truly rejoice
Knowing we're so small

This doesn't make any sense
Unless you believe nothing
And it is without pretence
That I leave you breathing

Genuine

Blessed the man without sins
Truly rejoice in his demise
For as he finally begins
We drown in our own lies

Do you know someone so genuine
That his every thought counts
While our lives lie in ruins
Every pain he surmounts

What about the one who's right
Without malice or evil thought
Bringing the sun to the moonlight
He teaches what has been taught

And the one with a vision so clear
Investing his life in fullfilling it
While we spend our lives in high gear
Spinning endlessly, dying bit by bit

I can only dream of such a state
I was born with doubt in my soul
And as I try to control my fate
I know I can never be whole


Hold on

Hold on to your life
For it is yours
In joy and strife
In white, in colours

Hold on, never let go
Trust yourself always
Never let a shadow
Steal any of your days

Hold on alone if you must
There is no shame in it
Or hug someone you trust
And in them never quit

Hold on, never despair
You're never alone
When life seems unfair
Simply stand on your own

Hold on, a great advice
And if in life you care
Subject to hate or vice
Dream if you dare


Waiting

Waiting for those who never came
Wasting seconds of a life limited
Why be patient if you have no aim
What to say to those you doubted

Waiting for nothing is a sentence
Worse than death, worse than pain
For no one noticed your absence
As they had nothing to gain

Yet convention praises patience
As a gift from God to the lost
But how can he know silence
When he's never been crossed

So wait, or not. Who really cares
After all it is your death you live
But don't bother with your errs
If you’re incapable to forgive


Can you

Can you come to the truth
From two different ways
As nothing can truly sooth
Better than the same daze

And here lies certainty
We're all children of God
While we stand happy
We still like to be awed

Yet it's not a free ride
All share in the work
Regardless if you hide
Or even check the clock

We all can do what we need
There is only one secret
You have to make it a creed
And love what you get

Thinking you can is all there is
There is no other advice
And never forget to say please
To be polite is the only price



Random Acts of Life

Life is but random
No act was written
All seconds come
Some not too often

Is life truly random
How can we know
Whichever outcome
Will make us grow

But if it's written
Let us be unaware
Of the path beaten
Unless we like despair

It's not always easy
Anyone would attest
But we're all free
To react to each test

What did you think
When life passed by
Did you just blink
Or stood and said 'I'

Life is always fair
Even in hard times
So stay truly aware
And live in rhymes

Books

Burn the books that ignore your thoughts
Ignore the wisdom the elders brought
And as you believe in your simple intuition
You might reach the same higher reason

True knowledge is a gift of experience
A meditation in the realm of balance
Some believe that no books can suffice
Others, in it you'll find the right advice

In your life, a few books will truly matter
Among thousands, regardless of the author
Those that do, your life will redefine
In a way that will make you shine

Whatever you do, never a book judge
Against it, never hold a grudge
For one writes for himself first
And for others who in life thirst

There is a book for you out there
Written, or for you to write if you dare
It sits on a shelf or dwells in your dreams
Either way, no word is what it seems


Blame

Oh, how easy it is to blame another
To find solace in all their faults
Oblivious to our own anger
To the reason the pain assaults

Why should we be responsible
For their lack of common sense
Ah, the rats, the scoundrels
Can't they realise their offence

So we live our lives blaming all
Unaware than in each complaint
We become insignificant, small
Running away from our inner saint

When will we stop this stupid game
Realising that for all that we have
We're the source of what we became
No one else can be the salve

So today, let's change our fate
Take responsibility with every dawn
And decide what you will create
Aware, that on all you can rely upon

Lost it all

Had you lost it all
You'll never know
What you've missed
What you've left
What you've ignored
What you've hurt
What you've killed
What you've destroyed
So do not worry
What you need is here

Had you lost it all
You'll be sorry
You'll be confused
You'll be angry
You'll be hateful
You'll be revengeful
You'll be suicidal
And no one will know
If you'll ever be all right

Had you lost it all
Know that
You'll search again
You'll breathe again
You'll live again
You'll think again
You'll feel again
You'll dream again
And finally
You'll see again

Respecting jerks, rejecting wimps

Respect the jerk, for he knows who he is
Reject the wimp, as of that, he's unaware
In life you'll find them both with ease
Everywhere, as they often come in a pair

Why would I say such a thing to anyone
After all, shouldn't we chose our friends
To be as an Aphrodite or a suave Don Juan
Not as someone no one wants to defend

Yet among themselves, they love life
No one truly cares, so they're unaware
That they are the source of strife
That to be with them is to err

Yet, do we, the righteous ones
See a bit of ourselves in them
Suddenly aware that all at once
We are the jerk or wimp we condemn

So fret not as you go by your day
You might even see it as a perk
To meet your counterpart and say
You are a wimp, you are a jerk

Practice God's Presence

Finding God is easy
Accepting is hard
Finding God in reality
Is its own reward

Next time have a look
At a flower, a tree
A friend, a book
Till you finally see

It's in all in the practice
Of trusting God is there
Being at your service
Even when you err

Or is to his glory
that you live today
With nothing to worry
With nothing to say

One question remains
What will you do
Should God explains
That all is in you

Making Memories

As you turn to see
Where you have been
Will it be a memory
Of a life lived within

Surely not, for each destiny
Includes the lives of others
Unless each second was empty
Without even a laughter

What do you remember most
A scene, a sea, a painting
Or a friend who was a host
When you were left wanting

Neither is wrong, neither is right
Live as you would, without constraint
Simply remember, when comes the night
None of your choices can be a complaint

For your life to matter to all
Live it fully and create memories
As each experience will recall
All that is good in our stories

Violet Sun

At the threshold of colours
Where the invisible merges
The violet sun in all honours
Removes all personal cages

When two auras meet
As the nexus starts to form
In a negative or positive beat
Each begins to transform

The violence of such a feast
Provides life to all involved
Into the heart of the artist
Then in science all are dissolved

On each side of the violet range
Lives the same soul unaware
That even if all will change
Nothing steps out of the square

The violet sun in the centre
The triangle comes right next
The perfect circle in the outer
And the square in context

Here comes the ultimate symbol
Transcending life and death
Exuding what is truly noble
In each of our violet breath


Born with a sense of the divine

All born with a sense of the divine
As you see life in all that matter
Know each sun passing is the sign
That life is truly for the better

As the tree grows without a noise
Among his peers and family
With an ancient majestic poise
How insignificant is our destiny

As the bee's search to survive
For its own kind's greater good
Shows us that to really thrive
We can't think about Godhood

As the greed grows in all our hearts
We claim dominion over all things
We learn science and all the Arts
Hoping to be queens and kings

Turning each thought into religion
Thinking God made us discover truth
But in reality, oh lost sons of Sion
Nothing we do is truly smooth

Maturity

Why be mature?
When you have an inner child
Why do we endure?
What stops us from being wild

Isn't there joy
In all that we do
With or without a toy
In everything we renew

I was aware too soon
Of life's painful experiences
And today I attune
To the wisdom of the ages

Grow, but never forget
That in you lies the child
Willing to take the bet
That seriousness should be smiled

So

Why be mature?
When you have an inner child
Why do we endure?
What stops us from being wild

In a Moment

Life passes in a moment
And few remember why
They lived each instant
Without a single sigh

In a moment all changes
What was once a lively scene
Turns into macabre dances
As the songs become unseen

When that second turns forever
Never to exist but in our dreams
Reminiscing in the crucial hour
That can never be what it seems

I wish I knew what life was
Without so many corners
With dead flowers in the vase
Traces of family members

In a moment I'll give it all
To live again those seconds
Unaware of what would befall
If I'd unearth those diamonds



In The Moment

Without a future or past
I live for today fast
As the second leaves
The next one grieves

To be in the moment
You can't be absent
Do pay attention
To every action

For the moment you stop
And miss a single drop
Someone else moves on
In a breath, they're gone

There is no tomorrow
Worth living in sorrow
And no yesterday
Worth any delay

Be in the moment
Lead the movement
Never surrender
To the hour


Certainty Kills

Certainty kills without a doubt
Those who without reason
Unaware of their treason
As they follow their route

How can you be certain?
Of anything you think
The truth of the weak
The plea of the broken

What if you're wrong?
And your brother's not
Who's the better of the lot
If no one comes along

What is certainty?
But the thought of a fool
The creed by which rule
No one can be happy

Be certain of one thing
Love and don't look back
There is nothing you'll lack
No regret worth dying

So let certainty be the muse
Of those without a past
For nothing will last
Not even their virtues


Thinking Free

Think as you wish, for no one can say
Your thoughts are better, are worse
As we realise in our own dismay
The way we think is often a curse

So let go of the past, ignore the future
For there is nothing in this world of yours
That would force anyone to live and endure
Another's thinking that not even he, ignores

Search for the thought that will make you free
A single word a fool says without thinking
Its meaning will burn in you an epiphany
That none will ever dream of asking

It all started with a single thought
We can never hope to comprehend
Even when the lives we fought
Finally stop with our own end

Think free, there is nothing left
No is there anything right
As you acknowledge the theft
Of your own pure insight

Uncertainty

Give me one word that will set you free
And I'll say, it will have to be uncertainty
Its meaning reaches beyond the beauty
Of an unknown future we'd love to see

Of circular logic its strength remains
That few are so aware to explain
It's in pleasure and certain pain
We search for what we cannot gain

As you rewrite your past History
Pledge to remain true to the story
Dead in the heart you hold firmly
Full of lies no one can ever query

There is meaning in not knowing
What lies ahead of our being
And when it comes for the taking
Give us the strength to stop begging

Uncertainty is without a doubt
The sum of what we are about
And if you try to do without
You'll never get out

Searching For a Cause

Unless you know who you are
You'll spend a life searching
Within the realm of the bizarre
What could be your meaning

As the child opens his eyes
To be loved, his only path
Even if you would baptise
Of a God full of wrath

As time takes its due
Our convictions fail
We suddenly argue
What we should hail

So if you know not
What you stand for
A seeker you ought
To become, to live for

And know for sure
The cause you seek
Is of a love so pure
You can never be weak


A Book Once Told Me

A book once told me to trust in my salvation
While another, with the same intention
To rely on another, one I'd never meet
Even if I stood endlessly at his feet

A book once told me to read more than ever
Even though knowledge is never better
Than we you ignore all that you've learned
To love without thinking it can be earned

A book once told me to follow its way
While keeping my thoughts at bay
To ensure an eternal bliss
In all the things that I'd miss

A book once told me to listen to myself
I put it straight back on its bookshelf
Who would want to listen to his voice
When the truth offers more than one choice

A book once told me all I needed to know
About our past, our future, even though
That book was still being written
By all those who in life were smitten

Left Wanting

I want my family
My daughter always
My wife forever
My father at all times
My mother incessantly

I want the noise
That no one else hear
I want the tree
That no one else sees

In all the days I have
I want to pray
I want to do
I want to sit
I want to be

I want to know
The ancient words
The books of life
The mind of others
The will of the wind

I want all there is
Inside of me
Outside of me
Yet, the world is wise
I'm left wanting



A Love That Can Never Exist

Of all the people you know
Do you love them truly?
Really so, in joy and sorrow
How much of you can they see?

Love is but a loose word
To define all matters of sin
An ancient hall of records
Written by those who win

Yet poet and singer praised it
Lost in its hypnotic stare
No one will ever admit
Loosing their soul to be aware

And in the depth of time
Resides the truth about love
A sublime word, truly a crime
Shinning from below, from above

So there is one love so forbidden
None can truly say it exists
To know it is your burden
Are you able to resist?

The Altruist

Altruism is a matter of selfishness
For who else would help another
Should you be truly selfless
You'd let them be their own author

Yet the world is made of good souls
Who work on their lives effacing
That each of us can be taught its role
To the benefit of the one following

We must cherish the unselfish
Glorify in this world his place
Without turning him into a fetish
Often falling short of true grace

As your life enroll others in a journey
Remember those you've left behind
Among them could be God on a donkey
So don't be proud, don’t be blind

Who knows, when you reach the crossroad
Meeting the one who holds a destiny
You could decide to live by his code
Or take the right road out of many

Lesser Wisdom

Of the Ancient and modern wisdom
Which is greater, which is lesser?
Who's to say what one will fathom
When life comes in its own hour

Of the truth you claim so readily
Without ever thinking of the other
Can you trust what you hear, or see
Unaware of what comes after

Of the life you build on your spirit
Would you claim to be alone or original
Believing to simply be God's favourite
Who can you trust when you're in denial

Of the family you lead into oblivion
Crushing a child's right to his story
Have you forgotten your own vision
The same one that would set you free

There has never been a lesser wisdom
For each truth past, present or future
Can lead you to your blend of freedom
As long as you recall you true nature

Word of light

There is light in this word

It's the word that you say
When nothing goes their way
A simple gesture remembered
By all whose days are numbered

It's the verb that you choose
To comfort another's bruise
When he sees nothing worthy
In his soul, life and destiny

It's the noun that you forget
As you forgive a friend's debt
Knowing full well that tomorrow
You could be the one in sorrow

It's the simple sound you scream
To encourage your child's team
As her life can only evolve
With each fault you absolve

There is light in this word
When everything seems absurd
So you use it as you please
Even when your mood varies


The Right

You have the right to live
As I have
You have the right to give
As I have
You have the right to forgive
As I have

You have the right to pray
As I have
You have the right to say
As I have
You have the right to stay
As I have

You have the right to raise
As I have
You have the right to amaze
As I have
You have the right to Sundays
As I have

You have the right to cry
As I have
You have the right to sigh
As I have
You have the right to die
As I have

We all have the right
To everything

Knowledge Weakens

The certainty of fools
Is found in many tools
In religion and philosophy
In politics and especially TV

Knowledge weakens the character
Of those who keep their vision blur
Enamoured in one book, one God
Believing that questioning is odd

In this truth lies a paradox
At your door, dogma knocks
You can answer if you dare
Lose the chance to be aware

No one question the priest
Who claims to chase the beast
Banning the learning of ancient wisdom
For the benefit of an eternal kingdom

Knowledge weakens all who stop
To ignore God in every teardrop
Preferring to live in the uncertainty
Of a question that will make them see



So Little to Cry For

So little to cry for
So much to rejoice for
In everything I adore
There's nothing I abhor

A life of a little joy
There's none I annoy
As a day's but a toy
To every schoolboy

Rejoicing in each second
That we'd have reasoned
To live for a thousand
Never to be saddened

So why cry for a lost thought
When nothing can be bought
Being more than what we're taught
Nothing can be anyone's fault

The only cry worth our time
Is the song with a bad rhyme
The agony of a lack of sublime
In a life that's destined to shine


For You

I will give you all the knowledge of old
You shall know the secrets of the earth
As your life continues to unfold
You'll learn the reason of your birth

You were born to be who you are
Unattached to unproven ideas
Destined for the forgotten star
Far beyond any existing dogmas

As each moment is but an experience
Turning your mind into a free spirit
You'll know deep in your essence
Without a purpose, you have no merit

Forge your soul into the iron of truth
Temper its blade with a millions roses
Learn to be old, never forget your youth
And you will know the wisdom of the ages

I will show you that with every step
You will make a choice for the better
Unaware that all the tears you've wept
Were the diamonds of your next summer

Yet I can only tell you what I know
Everything that matters to you however
Will be inherited from what you sow
For you are the ultimate ever after


Hating Life

None are born hating their lives
It's a skill we learn, we're taught
And every time we feel life's vibes
We choose a feeling or a thought

Would you hate life if you knew
That you exist for a deeper reason
Than your own point of view
Than your own shallow passion

As a tidal wave washes the sand
Our emotions dictate what we feel
We can hate and love the land
While blaming our watery will

So hate as much as you can
But follow quickly with love
As the cycle again will ran
You can only but look above

As reality of the night sets in
One wonders why we're here
Were we meant to simply win
Or to hide beyond one fear



Define Hell

Define hell for me
You who knows better
Same for paradise, tell me
You who's so clever

Hell might be in your future
As you waste your talents
Leading to a life bitter
As you blame your parents

It could be in your past
Without you being aware
And as time runs fast
There's nothing you'd dare

Yet

Hell can be here today
If it's what you desire
It could go its own way
If your dreams were higher


Insignificant Moment

It was an insignificant moment
In which time didn't make a dent
It was a time that none foresaw
The day we all died in awe

It started with a bang, who knew
For no one really had a clue
A spark could create so much
A simple act of God's touch

Since then nothing grand
A few things planned
And in the greater scheme
Nothing worthy it seems

Yet one creation stood apart
Claiming to be really smart
Establishing a dominion of fools
With order and a thousand rules

It was an insignificant moment
The day we became absent
Creation kept on going towards
Itself, as its own reward



You Shall Know More

You shall know more than I ever will
And even if time stood eternally still
I will not know what you'll learn
I'm not you, that, I haven't earned

For in this life you crave for wisdom
While in another you simply starved
As they pass to what you'll become
Your thread is finally carved

Until then you'll evolve both ways
As you seek each worthy experience
That will take you to another phase
Whose fate depends on your balance

Rejoice in a simple fact you must heed
That neither good nor evil truly exist
It doesn't matter what you concede
As long you keep, as long as you persist

You shall know more that you ever will
For each elementary wisdom you distill
Know that we're the same sand in time
We can't help but be sublime


Dream Camp

Welcome to dream camp
Where reality and truth
Live side by side
Countless before you
Masters and slaves alike
Have taken that path
Fourty days in the wild
With no other choice
But to dream or survive
With nothing to sustain
Neither mind, nor soul
As your only companion
Will you take being alone
Knowing that only you
Has the key to your dream
Is the master of your destiny
For the dream is truer
Than the thought that escapes
A mind unprepared
To the reality of itself
Behold the one who knows not
For he might hold the secret
As for the one who knows too much
Let him realise his foolishness
So dream and go forth
Extend your mind's reach
Into the reality of your visions
Knowing that one day soon
Neither truth nor falsehood
Will matter


The Rose and the Cherry

The Rose, in all glories
Declared herself Queen
The princess of the Cherries
Was stunned by what she'd seen

The Rose without hesitation
Stated the end of the bee reign
For without pollination
She'd stay young and vain

A thought without fault
For no one could argue
That life would halt
At the morning dew

The Rose in her elated state
Forgot the meaning of life
Unaware that all would hate
Living blissfully without strife

The princess finally spoke
To all of nature who'd listen
A speech that passion awoke
Words not heard that often

Nothing can be controlled
All will live as they see fit
The bees will return to the fold
Nature will take back her spirit


What's Another Year?

What's another year?
A collection of days
Some full of anger
While others amaze

Did each matter?
To you and all
Full of wonder
None truly small

Did you cry?
For an injustice
As none knows why
There is no peace

Did you rejoice?
To a life reborn
To another's voice
Even as it mourns

Did you evolve?
In soul and mind
Did you involve?
Left none behind?

So here is another year
Full of life, of challenges
Yet nothing can prepare
One who takes chances

As I Say

As I say, I love you
What do I mean?
As if I really knew
What can't be seen

As I say, I understand
Do I truly believe so?
Am I just lending a hand?
To a mistaken ego

As I say, see you again
Is that a promise?
Or words so vain
As they fall in the abyss

As I say, trust me
Would you do so
If you were angry?
Preferring to say no

As I say, I'll wait
Is that a weakness
Or simply my fate
To step into darkness

As I say, take my hand
Are you aware?
That until the end
I truly care


Let Me Be

Let me be
Do not close the door
Through which I can enter
Do not open the door
Through which I cannot

Let me be a son of God
In the glory of days past
Without fear of the future
Without pain that last

Let me be a song of light
Carrying my true self
To the end of reality
To the beginning of life

Let me be a sinless soul
Blessed in restful bliss
Without awareness
Without knowledge

Let me be a human saint
Full of errors even when right
Proud and ashamed of any thought
Tested longer that I was alive

Let me be
Do not listen to what I say
Forget the laughs we shared
Remember in you dark hour
That you too, will ever be

Unlikely Hero

We stand each day alone
Facing another minute
Walking into the unknown
Without any merit

We talk our way out
Of dire responsibilities
Thinking without a doubt
We aim to please

Yet each time we accept
To help another in trouble
We learn a life precept
We are simply all equal

In that illuminated second
We touch the hand of God
As we clean another's wound
We experience a life broad

We stand each and every day
The unlikely hero of an old tale
As everyone before us fell prey
To life's challenge and prevailed

An Hour

Dream the last hour
Before I knew you
When I was braver
With nothing to do

It didn't take long
For life to turn
A simple song
An hour to burn

Now I have to mature
Take life seriously
Eve if you're sure
It's not my destiny

Life is a succession
Of moments we dream
Thinking without opinion
We understand time's stream

Whether I praise or curse
That hour before you
I don't know what's worse
The past the future outgrew...

Evil out of Good

Can evil come out of good
As the other is often true
Loosing grip as one should
Truth is but a point of view

Are they really different
When both truly matter
Both we always want
As we leap in the fire

With a single belief
Exaggerating their power
Sensing the depth of grief
We ignore what's better

For both is a choice
Made at a crossroad
Where both rejoice
Whichever way we bowed

Evil comes of out of good
And in the next day of glory
The reverse will be as it should
Regardless of what will be

Why

Why did I do that
Why being so stupid
Why being a brat
And regret what I did?

Why did I answer
Why did you ask
Why are you better
Than me at the task?

Why did I praise
Why did you worship
Why did I raise
Away from friendship?

Why did you cry
Why did I feel
Why would you die
Knowing it's unreal?

Why did I stay
Why did you choose
Why did we pray
Unafraid to loose?


Wasting Time

As the hour disappears
I wonder what happened
Mixing hopes and fears
Of a future darkened

Each hour that I loose
By choice or mistake
Shows that I abuse
My power to awake

Yet I can never stop
Wasting my life away
As the pleasure to flop
Takes my destiny away

It is so painfully easy
To waste the time given
Killing the mystery
Of a life unproven

So I waste the present
To the before, to the after
None so brilliant
As the one who gets better

Not lost

There is a deeper knowledge
That all thought was lost
It survived in the language
In all impure thought tossed

It never was, it can never be
Lost to anyone who seeks
The ability to truly see
And listen to whoever speaks

It circulates in our behaviour
It's the essence of heroism
We sometimes call it culture
It is what we want to become

The ancient lived by it
While we took a wrong turn
And till the truth we admit
We can only hope to learn

That knowledge was never lost
We only forgot its meaning
We'll rediscover it at a cost
Are you ready for the awakening?


Not For You

The bird does not sing for others
It does not strive for you
The bird sings for his pleasure
As no one knows but the few

The sun does not rise for you
In itself it burns for eternity
Giving life a chance to renew
Unaware of whether you agree

Your friend does not live in you
Even if both destinies are tied
His own life he has to rescue
From your incessant tide

Our own destiny is not for us
As we selfishly, without a clue,
Believe that all should be joyous
To know us as we know ourselves too

Nothing in this life is really for you
And here lies the beauty of existing
We must strive without further ado
To help others in themselves believing


Imagination

Can you keep a thought unchanged?
While life passes by without a thought
As you stay behind with the deranged
Those who in their opinions got caught

Imagination rules the heart
Leads the soul, ignores the mind
Taking us to the real start
Where our dreams turn us blind

Imagine all there is to see
If you can, then be the God
That you were meant to be
Before you knew you were flawed

Imagine who you truly are
Each time you are destroyed
By a word, a voice from afar
Who knows not you're annoyed

Imagine what you could do
If you let life shine out
You'll always have a clue
As to what you are about

Give Me a Pen

Give me a pen, I shall change the world
With words unseen, even heard before
Speaking of hate, love, a flower, a bird
You will be challenged, internally at war

A careless, a careful word, will kill
Hurt like you'd never been before
Destroyed against your simple will
Pain will not be felt anymore

Another word will elevate your reality
Show without pretense how hard it is to be
Bringing your soul beyond your own identity
Where God meets us among the absurdity

So with a pen I'll make and break your day
Expend your horizons with such intensity
That no one will truly question my way
For none will need to move for all eternity

So give me that pen I so deeply require
Let me express the feelings of being
Never to more hope can one aspire
Leave me alone, leave me ascending



I Don't Need Anything

I Don't Need Anything
I probably never will
I want it all without asking
That, I can never fulfill

I might need air, maybe water
To simply be alive, everyday
I don't need to know the hour
That passes along my way

I know deep in my heart
That I long for love
Each time we're apart
I need it too from above

There might be other things
That I need for sure
In all of our beginnings
We use them to endure

But I don't need anything
Beyond what I have already
Why do we need everything
When we can't share passionately


Opinion

Give me your thoughts
I'll prove you wrong
Even as an afterthought
Truth always comes along

For all we think is an opinion
Forged from our many lives
Often beyond our own reason
Said even before it arrives

We all now what is real
Nothing we say is mistaken
As each word a soul fulfills
Something deep is awaken

As a member of a kind most noble
I give my views without absolute
If I was truly knowledgeable
I would refrain to so pollute

So let's give our opinions freely
While keeping them to ourselves
Life should be lived absentmindedly
Ignoring all full of themselves

You Should

You should eat your vegetables
You should look for the silver lining
You should think thoroughly before talking
You should pass the bread
You should give back
You should sleep
You should listen
You should do what you said
You should wake-up early, no matter what
You should pray
You should learn constantly
You should call your friends
You should marry for love
You should not hurt people
You should defend others
You should answer
You should clean-up your mess
You should write more than others
You should pay attention
You should give respect
You should talk when necessary
You should be silent more often
You should trust
You should think
You should be


Incantation

King of all, let me be
Queen of all, let me see
I want to love absurdly
And think relatively

I wish all to be free
Where none would agree
As to the painful finality
Of a life spent in ambiguity

I need to be angry
Without any animosity
Towards you, towards me
Simply feeling arbitrarily

I wait by the clock to be happy
Aware that I'd need to be witty
If I wanted to live effortlessly
Without any useful activity

I hope to one day learn beauty
As it resides in each heart freely
To let it come out without blasphemy
My words be told unknowingly


When Asking

When asking for a gift
Beware it might be granted

When asking for help
Be ready to return it

When asking to know the future
Pray you'll be able to change it

When asking to be forgiven
Trust that it has already happened

When asking to know it all
Be aware it already is so

When asking someone to wait
Remember it's never easy

When asking to be wealthy
Define your role in life

When asking to know God
Forget all that you've been

When asking to destroy me
Never forget where you will be

When asking to glorify me
Never forget where you will be

So when you ask to simply be
Simply be


The Universe

The universe conspires to help you
If you let it behave the way it needs
For every time you control or argue
It negates the smallest of your seeds

Pay attention to the cosmic law
It is written in the stars at night
Many have been able to foresaw
What for them would be right

It's a pretty big place out there
What happens to your questions
Do you wait, even if unaware
If your request will lead to action

Here is the secret to the universe
Ask what you need and trust
That it works, in manners diverse
To answer the idiot, the cleverest

And here lies the main issue
Do you know what to ask for?
Are you precise in your views?
Or speak only in metaphors

So begin to know yourself
A step everyone should take
Then ask the universe itself
Make sure you're awake



Tired

Tired to be someone I'm not
Tired to be who I am at all
Tired to do things I cannot
Tired of life, need overall

Tired to listen to idiots
Tired to learn from experts
Tired to hear even one bigot
Tired to talk with a convert

Tired to impress anyone
Tired to suck-up to others
Tired to search for the one
Tired to answer an accuser

Tired to search for any cure
Tired to forgive my mistakes
Tired to have to endure
Tired to have what it takes

Tired to write useless words
Tired to think beyond the box
Tired to reach upwards
Tired to wear my sox


Silent Knowledge

Do you know something
Without of it thinking
Aware of another
Without even blinking

Here lies true wisdom
Knowing without words
In this, is real freedom
Moving, with you, onwards

Knowing in pure silence
The thoughts of God
Fighting with violence
An ego who knows it's odd

As you learn, you ignore
A truth once common
For knowledge to soar
Forget books and devotion

Silent knowledge is in you
It was then as it is now
The only truth of value
Everything else I'd disavow

Spiritually

Life is a spiritual adventure
Deeply rooted in our nature
We develop our own future
Beyond any single scripture

In the spirit of things
We strive for blessings
Ignoring so many callings
As we die in all evenings

Each soul is a powerful spirit
Responsible for its own wit
Destined to walk in opposite
Simply searching its limit

Do you believe in such belief?
Nothing in life can bring you grief
For a lifetime is all so brief
A second passing like a thief

Spiritually speaking, I now know
That all is the same as below
For none even God can bestow
For what I am is what I sow


When The Songs

When songs meant something
Each would to tell us a story
Of a life spent adoring
Of a second spent sadly

They would awake our spirits
Make us sore beyond mediocrity
And for a second without limits
We'd live without any guarantee

In each we would see deep within
Blanding all our aches, all our dreams
To a note, a word, that could only begin
Never ending, never leaving, or so it seems

Each moment of our lives marked forever
With a tune that would stay buried inside
Giving each memory past its own flavour
A souvenir of a time that'll never subside

Where are those songs I long to hear
Those words and notes that made me cry
Taking care of every single little fear
They live to help others, they'll never die


In the Forest

Oh forest! Oh ferns!
Silence at every turn
A symphony of sound
All senses unbound

Towering everyone
Enters the swan
Master of the lake
Symbol of heartbreak

Walking in silence
Just as in a dance
Fearing every tree
Nothing I can see

I continue bravely
Fighting actively
Thoughts of pain
Death in the rain

Down the pathway
Life will betray
My life, my love
Curse all above

Yet the forest
Gives me the rest
I need to survive
Forcing me to be alive

Seven Sins

Of the seven sins
Which a bell rings
Have you thought
Which you sought

Luxuria for all there is
In itself, is but a tease
Bringing a thief, a noble
To lust like an angel

Gula is truly endless
Unable to assess
The value of bread
Even for the well read

Avaritia is sad seed
That simply is greed
Unable to really see
The value of liberty

Acedia brings no value
To anything with a debut
For nothing can start
Unless in it you take part

Ira brings all the danger
Of life spent in anger
Many bear the scars
Of the war God, Mars

Invidia is just so sweet
Envying its own wit
Unaware it is flawed
Inside its own abode

Superbia turns us fools
Too proud of the rules
We set for all others
As we lead the accusers

Know your sins
As your life spins
Out of control
Of its own role

With Ease

With ease, I tease
Each who agrees
With what I say
To their dismay

With ease, I create
My own fate
As I decide
What's inside

With ease, I cease
To love and live
As it is my turn
To die and burn

With ease, I forget
What I came here to get
Lost in my own lust
With nothing to adjust

With ease, I write
Of love and right
Nobly presiding
What all are avoiding

With ease, I pray
That we all stay
For a little longer
In the arms of a lover


Backward

I shall foresee the past and read about my future
In a world going backward from death to birth
I rule supreme, blameless, having to endure
That I'm going backward for all I'm worth

I would come unto this earth aware
Of my thoughts, action and place
I'll have everything I need to wear
And a sense of my own grace

Instead I'm born naked without a thought
Full of pain, full of joy, with no control
Forced to learn what is taught
Even if it's not in my soul

In this world backward life would make sense
We'd be in it, opinionated from the first day
Knowing that with each day from then hence
We'd forget a little till we loose our way

Is it a painful truth that to evolve
You sometimes need to reverse
Unwillingly or of your own resolve
For fear of becoming worse


Calling the Faithful

As the bells rang, their echo floating on the hills
I stop my toil, bowed and started to pray
But pray to whom? For what? To kill the ills?
Had I lost my faith by praying away?

Blessed are those who faith is strong
As for the rest of us, we cling to hope
Believing that the future can't be wrong
For it is the only way left to cope

I hear them now, thinking how foolish
If I only knew their God, I'd be saved
Safe in that belief, with no anguish
As the Saints of past, all well behaved

Here lies the irony of such a lie
For their God is yours, is mine
An omnipotent God can never deny
A belief that is truly out of line

So in the hills, the bells will ring forever
Stopping everyone in their evening
For even the empty promise of a saviour
Has to be better than slowly dying


Centre of Attention

Craving the limelight is both a gift, a curse
As those leaving in the shadows despise
The joker's pleasure, rather perverse
To bring all back to him, even the wise

Yet in that love, ourselves we glorify
Wishing for but a little limelight
Yet unwilling to comprise even slightly
Our polite laziness and lack of fight

Being the centre of another's attention
On your sense of self will put a toll
As you can lose, with all that tension
Your real identity, your only true role

Deep inside we all feel the need
To be loved, wanted, simply noticed
In that sense, our ego truly leads
In that sense, we're all artists

So pay attention to the centre
It's where the Gods play us
Giving us safety, even danger
Inviting us to be jealous


Desire

What do you need that truly matter?
For which God does your heart beat?
When nothing is real at this hour
Even the desire of another's deceit

Yet our soul craves for more
Our mind pleads for pleasure
While deep inside we swore
Not to fall without an answer

It consumes all that we are
Like a fire with no flame
Taking us away, leading us afar
From those we love and blame

Yet we must not live without it
It's the spark of life that creates
A need to never quit, never admit
Not to be less than what life dictates

Cherish your desire to be more
Learn from those who stray
Nurture your passions to ignore
Stand firm and live life's ballet


Destination

Do you know where you're going?
Or simply live day-by-day, aimless
Is their purpose in your thinking?
Or each day leads to distress

Choose a point in your future
Give it a name, a skill, a task
There is nothing more pure
Than to do what no one asks

That fateful first step you'll take
Is internal, a figment of the mind
Of others dreams, you'll forsake
That dependency of the blind

Once on your way, never forget
To arrive, you must keep going
On your way, you might get help
But only you will be arriving

It doesn't matter where you go
As long as it's your choice
No one else but your ego
Will know your real voice


Gratitude

What are you grateful for?
As you wake-up alone
Is there one you adore?
Is it hate you condone?

Of all the skills in our lives
Gratitude is the hardest
To be thankful revives
All sins, even the crudest

You'd have to be a fool
Without a conscience
To be truly grateful
With all that defiance

And truly fools we are
For we thank our God
To have come so far
Feeling like a fraud

Be grateful for who you are
For you are truly unique
Forget the internal war
Simply know what you seek


Language of the Birds

Once spoken for all to hear
Now lost to all even the few
Its meaning yet all so clear
Buried in words anew

The language of the garden
Used by the first keepers
Many might call it Eden
Now shadows of whispers

Commanding in every word
A sound all life knew
Moving forever forward
Without having to renew

Spoken by all in unison
It was friendship at its best
All equals without seasons
Never needing to even rest

It dissapeared in a question
Unspoken in the fruiftul tree
A friendly foe with a reason
To give us a chance to see

Not knowing what was known then
As the words even escape me
They were given as well as ten
Forgetting they were deadly

No Books to Buy

No books we have to buy
What we need to know
Is already inside our eye
Far beyond our ego

Yet books give us more
If you're ready to change
To be twisted to the core
Where nothing is strange

With limited time at hand
What is worth reading?
Taking a story till the end
Is no longer gratifying

We seek knowledge in all
Pictures, sounds, or touch
Often having to face a wall
Guarding nothing much

We already know it all
Books just remind us
That before the fall
We use to be joyous

Nostalgia

Longing for someone past, for a story
Is a gift of God, even a sinful pleasure
Reminiscing in the charms of eternity
We long for a past better than our future

With little to rely on but our effacing memory
We remember a world without extremes
Where either rain or pain, in all their glory
Transformed a second into a novel theme

We glorify moments than meant nothing
Purge others than changed our lives
We re-write our past before dying
Leaving a world with tainted archives

Oh, we nostalgic lot, slaves of our memories
Will we ever move beyond their power?
Thank God we forget so many histories
Yet not able to lose what makes us wiser

It is the curse of time we all live by
We move from life to life, endlessly
Able to learn with each goodbye
That it is up to us to design our story


Of the Elements

Of the four elements
Which would you be
Which holds the sacrament
That will make you free

The earth stands firm
Below our feet and soul
Being the final urn
It knows its role

Water is as fluid as ever
Full of life and promises
For poorer, for richer
The bride of all ages

In passion burns the fire
The son of humanity
In secret we admire
Its ability to live simply

The last sustains us without air
Omnipotent, even omniscient
In the wind we learn what is there
As we can only be when absent



Spiritual Quest

What do you seek that others have not?
When did you know there was more to life?
Was it death that showed you what you've got?
Was it faith that lead you away from strife?

We all search for a reasonable answer
Why am I here? What's my purpose?
As we balance between hope and anger
We question all in search of a compass

Yet, when did you last listen to your spirit?
Heard the voice that might know it all
Or is that voice the real culprit?
The one that made you fall

Did you read the books of old?
Those that speak of true knowledge
A power we stopped being told
As we fear our own courage

And in this quest, here lies the irony
We will all seek for more than there is
No matter what was our destiny
We'll question the life that flees


The Ladder of Light

In the beginning was data
It started as a dot, a spark
Nothing more than an Alpha
To take us out of the dark

Developing into information
It took life and made it is own
Turning all that was common
Into what would soon be sown

Knowledge became the force
For good, yet often blessed as evil
Showing the path to the source
We're no angels after all

As to the few who stayed the path
Enlightenment came with no surprise
And for you, check your heart, do the math
Can you, in this life, arise?

For to climb the ladder of light
Several lives are necessary
From mistakes, we become bright
Let's face it, it's our destiny


The Sound of Light

Did you hear the star cry in the morning sun?
A pain so bright, few noticed the tears
For when a star's life has its course finally run
Nothing will ever be as it appears

So listen to the sound of light
Heed its voice, not its beauty
For to see is forever finite
While to hear, is actually empty

Blessed the many who cannot fathom
That light in its unwavering glory
Turns all but the spring blossom
Into a note on a scale of three

If we can hear with our eyes
We can see the good, the evil
That beauty makes when it talks
About a future that nothing can rival

And if you can see with your ears
Then you'd have yourself outgrown
Equal and first among your peers
Light will finally make a sound of its own



Valentine

Do you remember why you love her?
Do you remember why you love him?
This question's meant to deter
People who use love on a whim

In a world where all is commercial
Stand a concept that keeps us sane
Even though it gets us into trouble
We come for more, rejecting the pain

Is love the reason of a single day?
Especially when they are no reason
Shouldn't it be the only true way?
No way to live, but with such passion

So choose your valentine carefully
Ignore the pressure of the gift
May I say, never forget how easy
It is to destroy, to create a rift

On this day nothing really matter
Just a feeling carrying eternity
In a thought, a word, an hour
A responsibility, a destiny

Book of Unknowing

We could write books
With what we don't know
For wherever one looks
There's only wasted info

In an age of too much
What should one learn
As every book we touch
Seems so hard to earn

In all the world libraries
Lies words that save
Hidden in many stories
Each leading to your grave

To unlearn is the greatest gift
To let go of useless ideas
Taken by a thought so swift
You'll see the end of an era

In the book of unknowing
That you can never read
Find your life disappearing
And finally know. You're dead


The Wind

Without pretext or shame
The wind carries our faults
Even our hopes without aim
In an ever twisting waltz

Silently passing through our minds
With all the might of a tornado
Ravaging our soul as it unwinds
A thought that happened long ago

The wind is but a friend, a foe
A strength we know we lack
Yet unable to let it all go
We cling to a life out of whack

Drop everything, climb a mountain
Stand on the edge of a precipice
Look down to what you can't attain
And let the wind bring you peace

The wind is but air that moves
An action beyond its own destiny
Bringing a thought that proves
You need to live with a dose of folly

Loosing Touch With Music

During three long spiritual years
While loosing touch with music
Following another's orders
My life became but a mimic

Little did I know that the word
In all its glory, a world creator
Could become so awkward
Could negate the gesture

And the prophets of the new age
Those merging words and sounds
I knew nothing of their rage
Oblivious to what they'd found

How could I miss such a secret
How could I live without a rhythm
Lost forever, with no regrets
For I knew life wasn't random

One day came the question
Do you know the power of a song?
I realised that I had no option
But to open to what I sung all along


Ghosts

Where are the ghosts of my past
They who haunted my youth
Who showed me life can't last
Whom I thought knew the truth

They entered my story every year
Once full of joy, sorrow and dreams
Now but to be missed forever
No longer able to take me to extremes

I knew their faces well, loved the smiles
They taught me to walk, to work, to cry
They defined my world, my lifestyle
Each a philosopher who had to die

For decades their influence grew
Living my life as if it was my own
Every time I thought I saw anew
They reminded me I was alone

Where are they now those past faces
They evaporated as I started to realise
I was who I was not by their wishes
But by simply severing the ties


Echoes of the Sun

My shadow plays tricks on my soul
Reflecting my eternal darker side
Never assuming but another role
Than the one of a misguided pride

In the dark I often forget her role
Unaware that what you can't see
Is yet visible to your inner soul
A reflection of the truer me

In the man created temporary light
She splits into its own lonely shadows
A poor copy of the original insight
Piercing the night that life foregoes

As awake under the morning sun
I turn and face the daily reality
That as I long as my light's uneven
I'll face the shadow of my destiny

Yet fear not the echoes of the sun
For they will open your undying eyes
To the meaning of your shadows' burden
That you are one till your own demise


Death

There is nothing after death you say
We are destined to live again you say
It doesn't matter which way I take
For I'll only know once I'm awake

Since the beginning of the first thought
We tried to understand a death we fought
Creating tombs and rituals to the Gods
It is death we should praise, as us, it lauds

There is an irony in seeing another pass on
We finally understand what went wrong
In our lives, and the lives of those we love
Yet unable of ourselves to rise above

And with each end we face in our lives
We must learn what it takes to revive
The eternal soul that chose to learn
That few of knowledge truly yearn

Between what you know and what is
As you believe you do as you please
Realise that no amount of wisdom
Opens the door to the kingdom

Be Childish

Be childish, immature as you please
Work on it till it comes with ease
For we all are unawares genies
Lost in a field of flowery lilies

As I think more and more as a child
Finally aware of the beauty of the wild
Yet what maturity as insanely defiled
Could one day be forever exiled

And if today you don't start to fight
For what we all know is truly right
And if we forget that little insight
We will better of to fall into the night

For I'm afraid, you the thinkers of the day
That you're cleverness stands in the way
Of a child who has learned to pray
And destined himself to never delay

So be childish and stand accused
By those before who have abused
A nature we should have left unused
As opposed to in a state where it’s confused

Bruises

Would life be worth living
If not for the bruises we get
Each hit truly bringing
A memory, a lesson, a regret

Without a thousand pains
None can truly feel alive
For all the joys we feign
In hurt we always thrive

A scar is like a word
Written in your blood
By another's sword
As friends applaud

Here lies a truth real
That for each bruise
A friend's will feel
You've paid your dues

Seek a life of your own
Never refrain to try it all
Forget those who disown
A way to train your soul

Her Voice

Her voice is in the background
A sound of life, small and subtle
And every-time she's around
I feel her love pure, gentle

In a minute, she'll be next to me
Claiming complete attention
There is nothing else, you see
When she shows her devotion

She sings as she's learning
Each word has its own music
For nothing is ever boring
As by itself, everything is magic

She moves in words understood
Claiming the story as her own
Making it up better than it could
As she's now sitting on the throne

Her voice is a life continued
An extension of her ancestors
Displaying each of their moods
In the tones she uses as altars


One More Minute

One more minute
That's all it takes
To be a destitute
Or one who awakes

Yet that eternal time
Feels like forever
As it can be sublime
To be missed after

It's the simple difference
Between the right word
And another left to chance
One divine, the other, absurd

It can never be faked
As it comes from within
It's never half-baked
As it leads to win

One more minute
That's all it takes
To bear the fruits
Of your mistakes


Dare I Say

Dare I say what I think?
Dare I listen to you?
Dare I even blink?
As you do what you do

The freedom of speech
Bastion of those who preach
Seems so out of reach
When dictators want to teach

So to those before us
Who fought to let us talk
I thank you for your lives
Given for our words

When my mind has an itch
To speak itself, even bitch
Let me forget that to be rich
One often has to switch

So today I dare say
What's in my mind
We'll always find a way
To give sight to mankind


Silence

Few experiences are harder to take
Than a silence, deep and pronounced
It is in such state that one becomes awake
Without reality ever being announced

Yet we fear that would help us grow
Preferring to be filled with empty noise
Knowing perfectly that what we sow
Will end-up as but mere toys

Sitting in silence is often a torture
We impose on the young, thinking
It seems important for their future
Not to disrupt another's schooling

Yet it is that same boost of creativity
That one day will be required of them
To ensure they fulfill their destiny
That same creativity silence will inflame

So the logic of today cannot but fail us
Silence is needed for the truth to prevail
Remember the harmony of an opus
It's in the silences that it tells the tale


Talking

What have you got to say
That has not been said before
Do you really think your way
Is the only one to explore

I have to say, we talk too much
We let words go without thinking
Yet each is a cure that can touch
Or a disease that needs feeding

We talk, it goes without saying
For a reason. At least, it seems
Of all the sentences we're using
How many respond to a dream

We only say one word at the time
But we mean often so much more
With double-meaning, or a rhyme
We give them the substance of a whore

As talking is cheaper than a thought
We forget the real price of silence
In evil words we often get caught
As in our heads, angelic sayings dance

Judge Me

Judging is a divine gift
That none can possess
For as our finite lives shift
We are subject to excess

There is comfort in judging
For we ignore our flaws
When we focus on seeing
How others break the laws

Yet we throw the stone
To another's mistake
For they should own
In what they partake

We judge without mercy
A fault we'd never do
Yet we are not free
Of those we get into

Judge me if you have to
For you truly know not
And as I judge you too
I know less than I thought


Friendship

It's in turbulent times that friendship are born
And in quiet ones that they are truly tested
It comes as no surprise that no one is forewarn
As we realise that none of them lasted

It takes a second to trust someone for life
And an eternity to kill that passion
As reality cuts our emotions like a knife
We forego all qualities of reason

We need friends just like we need air
Searching constantly for another soul
And often we're caught unaware
As whoever we meet can play that role

Choosing the friends with whom we agree
Unaware that no one actually decides
What in others we can actually see
In us they see the same as it collides

So it is time to reveal another secret
No friend exist in the people you meet
Until you stand and remain quiet
Ready to listen to their heartbeat


Initiate

As an initiate of the order of the dumb and the wise
I say to you, without fear and certainly not prejudice
Of all the ideas I've learned from others, one defies
What I know inside, made truly alive through practice

It started all well, through a cry and a gentle slap
I emerged fully formed, yet incapable of seeing
That all that I knew was now philosophical crap
And the truth buried in the inner recess of my being

When you think that it takes a lifetime to remember
Everything that you should already know by heart
For the knowledge we seek was of the same author
That gave us the life we enjoy ripping apart

I know not the reason why I have to relearn all wisdom
From life to life, from crushing thought to enlightened idea
It is puzzling to never know what we can truly become
Unless we let ourselves die into the caprice of another era

So until then, I'll read everything, I'll meditate all day
I'll explore the inner corners of the world I was given
I'll decide which road to take, often going the wrong way
And I'll pray to access the truth that was sadly hidden

Nature's Silence

Before we silenced nature
It was full of a life of its own
But it took but one creature
To unbalance and disown

To those who don't speak
This kingdom is truly yours
For in the word we seek
We forgot we're all saviours

We search to tame a beast
That has sustained us till today
Thinking we are the artiste
That gave meaning to the clay

Nature still speaks to us
Who's listening to its cries?
Who is really conscious?
Of a future each denies

Nature's silence will be
The last thing we hear
Before we finally see
We are what we hear

Oh Snake, Oh Serpent

Oh Snake, Oh Serpent
Praise me as I praise you
Glorify me as I glorify you
Think me as I think you
Dream me as I dream you
Pray for me as I pray for you
Act on me as I act on you
Fool me as I fool you
Defend me as I defend you
Create me as I create you
Destroy me as I destroy you
Cry for me as I cry for you
Laugh for me as I laugh for you
Dance for me as I dance for you
Speak to me as I speak to you
Oh Snake, Oh Serpent
Hate me as I hate you
Love me as I love you

Normal

I need to feel normal to be exceptional
This is not out of the ordinary for me
For all my life has been a battle
Between good, evil, and a query

Of all the people you know
Do you call any of them normal?
Is it an insult, a praise, a flaw
Or is your friendship too casual?

What is normal anyway?
We all define it differently
Even a fool knows his way
Thinking we're all acting weirdly

Why does one wish to be one of the other?
Why is no one satisfied with his position?
Is progress the domain of the fool who alters
What everyone else believe to be within reason

So, everyone must live exceptionally
Or in normality, find their exception
Either way, stand clear of a reality
Forcing you to another's reason


Agreeing

It doesn't matter if you agree with me
For I am not you, nor will I ever be
My opinion reflect my history
To forever be my own reality

This is my world, reflected in my eyes
A view honed in truth and a thousand lies
Learnt in trials, errors, and a surprise
That I relearn every time someone dies

Why would we want to agree with each other
For diversity creates the most magical banter
Yet, it's true, it's the source of so much anger
That all know what to do to with the other

If we could only agree on one thing
Would it be the inevitability of dying
Or simply our craving need for living
No. It's our inability to agree on anything

I don't really care if we are destined to agree
As long as we work faithfully to be less angry
And if that takes for the two of us to agree
Then we might need to realise we are free

Now

This time is sacred
There's nothing like it
It should be praised
Never forgotten
For now is all we have
A second dispensed freely
Will never come back
Unless it is to haunt us
As we forgot to live in it
Swayed by tomorrow
It's beauty and promise
Makes us forget that today
Is but yesterday's tomorrow
We often long for a day gone by
While we can grasp this moment
Are we fools unable to think
Or thinkers without folly
For it seems that when you do
Life and time merge endlessly
Or feel like an eternity
Either way we're wasting time
Each time we seek our past
Or claim a future we long to see
Unable to again realise our gain
Every time we stop to love


Fallen for Love

Putting your heart out there
Fighting in the greatest battle
Yet no one is ever aware
Of the devil so subtle

Search and you will not find
Live, and it might happen
Ask, and simply stay blind
Be, and it will deepen

For this is the mystery of old
Never to be answered
Why weren't we told
Life would be altered

Knowing the joy and pain
Would seek this destiny
Search for a pleasure vain
Absent of every reality

Love is truly a fallacy
Yet who in his right mind
Would live without a story
Based on love all so blind

Life Takes Nothing

Life takes nothing
That you didn't give
And what you bring
Someone will forgive

Life takes nothing
Praise yourself
For surviving
Life itself

Life takes nothing
Pour all of your soul
For before dying
You'll need to console

Life takes nothing
Without permission
Stop blaming
All but your passion

Life takes nothing away
So give it all you can
Live day by day
Even have a plan

White Cat

On the ledge sat the white cat
Proud of his fur and passion
Born noble, some say fat
Of parents without reason

Watching the moon all day
Never thinking of others
It praises his own way
Unaware of all the actors

Between the earth and sky
Lost in a deep meditation
Surely, it can never die
If there are no questions

They should all praise him
For his coat, for his dedication
Ascetic, but not on a whim
Having gone beyond caution

As its pride met its ego
Life as we know it
Disappeared in an echo
As it could not admit

Ah, to be a white cat
Full of raw instincts
Never to know defeat
As we become extinct


Path

I hold wisdom about your path
Wouldn't you like to know
Without having to do the math
Gain the benefits of such info

But let's start at the beginning
That's where most path begin
Do you know where you're going?
Do you know where you've been?

So if you don't know either of these
What makes me think I can help you
Do let me put your mind at ease
I don't always know what to do

Yet, if we met by chance or plan
Those few seconds will show
That we were meant to outran
Any of your pitiful status quo

So take a chance and let's meet
I'll give you my undivided opinion
And who knows, in a heartbeat
You might refine my vision


Born On A Good Day

We're all born on a good day
For with each life, joy appears
If no one would show the way
We'd still love our tears

So why is it downhill from here?
Who told us life was to be though?
Isn't it enough to face our fears?
Should every word be rough?

Truth has a funny way to laugh
At our pursuit of happiness
It knows what it is to be well off
Even though we but think less

Of all there is you need to learn
One thought above all else stands
Each day that you proudly earn
Belong to those who gave you a hand

Each day is a good day
Whether in birth, in death
Never live one halfway
It could be your last breath


I Shall Be

I shall be known by my words
A truth I can no longer deny
I'd have to live the herds
That kept me in their lie

Don't get me wrong, it's fun
To be one among others
To share a voice, a burden
To be one of the brothers

I'd have to find my voice
To live without comfort
Questioning every choice
Probably till I hit the dirt

I could remain alone forever
To only be known once dead
Lost between passion and anger
A toy of life inside my head

I shall be known by my words
A truth I can no longer deny
I'll move away from the coward
I've been without knowing why



If A Master

If a master came today
Would we recognise him
Or deny him his way
As we did in an hymn

What would he look like?
Would this master be a she?
Would he be more warlike?
Would she make me free?

Would the master talk of trinity?
Knowing we forgot its meaning
Would this dogma be deadly?
Killing all found to be disagreeing

Should we call him a guru?
Oblivious to race, preaching love
Would he write with virtue?
As we know not what's above

If a master came today
Would it change our destiny?
Would I mend my ways?
Or stick to my own reality?

Maybe we've already met
And I was too busy to know
That what makes me fret
Was solved long ago



In The Moment

You're not in the moment
Unless you see the glory
Of every gesture, every want
Even if it's not your destiny

It's easier to live in the past
Cherishing a love long lost
A memory disappearing fast
Sometimes forgotten at all cost

It's as easy to live in the future
When the only limit is a dream
Even if you're missing the picture
Of a life without any theme

To live in the present is a gift
We seem to ignore with pleasure
Preferring to be ever so swift
Making sure we miss the hour

Be in the moment, it's all there is
Every thought is but life's shadow
What you see will leave with ease
Just as you did so long ago


Misunderstood

Talk is cheap, silence golden
Both a ridiculous burden
We carry as a mantra
When all it is, is dogma

Let's talk and understand
Our thought can't be grand
Unless we both get into
Each other's point of view

Why do I often fail to see
That when I judge quickly
My words loose their power
Yet I can't face my failure

So why do I blame you
For doing what I do
When I've told you before
So much you should ignore

Here lies our major flaw
As I have told you so
We're only misunderstood
When to our truth we elude


Cry

There is a little boy crying right now
For a father who died in a lost war
For a mother who knows not how
To keep from running out the door

There is a daughter crying right now
For her family’s undivided attention
As she angrily allows herself to vow
To kill her love with extreme reason

There is a father crying right now
For a son whose future was taken
Questioning why would God allow
To leave him behind forever broken

There is a mother crying right now
As her life is going against her will
Hoping her children will never bow
To the power of death standing still

Do you cry when life goes awry?
Or keep those sissy tears inside
Never allowing anyone to see
Your broken dreams thrown aside


All is a prayer

Every act, every thought
Is a prayer in waiting
A battle to be fought
As you free your thinking

The words you utter
Without even believing
Praise of kill another
As you pray to the dying

Every gesture you let go
Out of pain or pleasure
Is like a gift you borrow
Against the will of the giver

Your life is a prayer
To a God so personal
No other has the answer
To your own survival

All of nature is a prayer
Us, a rock, a tree, a bee
All in their view differ
On the value of their destiny



All that you know

All that you know
Always changes
All that you sow
Always deranges

Fear the unknown
If you must so live
Yet nothing's grown
Unless you believe

To know is eternal
Yet you’re lost in time
As the word on the wall
Crumbles in the sublime

Learn all there is
Yet there is nothing
You'll learn with ease
If you're all knowing

In this simple paradox
Wisdom plays tricks
Awareness it unlocks
As you cross the Styx

To know or to believe
That's the only question
That would relieve
The deepest reason

Beauty

So subjective, yet recognized by all
Beauty is in the eye of those who behold
Unconnected to the sit of our soul
Unified in an unclear dream so old

There is beauty in every single soul
Aware that it was always whole
When betrayed by those who cajole
It still knows what in life is its role

Do you possess the gift of reality?
Being aware that all is true beauty
Seeing God in everything crazy
Especially when you behave wrongly

What of the beauty of tomorrow?
Entangled in its own eternal sorrow
Why do we cry, it was so long ago
That yesterday took our ego

In return, what about the memories
That every old men with him carries
A glory that each of us only sees
As we turn away from those lustful orgies

So beauty, behold the man, the woman
Who cherished you when you began?
And now can only let go of the plan
To keep it forever, as you still think you can

Classic Music

Listen to the heavenly notes
Of gifted souls, of sinful men
Of the mistakes they wrote
As they play it again, and again

Have you ever been stopped
By an endless crescendo
Until it finally had to adopt
A reason in tune with its shadow

So strange, a music so classic
Would resist the test of time
And bring a message rather cryptic
To crowds who don't give a damn

In each note the instrument expresses
Resides a lifetime, even a world of beauty
Where in sequence it actually dances
Within the hearts of those who don't have any

Music is the sound of an eternal magic
The remain of a God who saw its light
Broke his heart in a moment so dramatic
We still live in its shadow, forever finite

I Am My Evil Twin

I am my evil twin
My own son of Satan
All souls I must win
Even if you're a charlatan

There is nothing in a name
That would protect you
For all the souls I blame
Of the one they all grew

I fear nothing but myself
Being truly selfish and dark
I'd sell you for more wealth
If I only knew how to bark

Each owns a dual side
A self-complement
Often taken for a ride
To my own detriment

I am my evil twin
A duality in trilogy
You can never win
Unless I'm free

If

If I do the right thing
The beautiful thing
The really real thing
For that second
The world is better
My world is better
I need not be altruistic
Forever focused on others
I just need to do the right thing


Kumara

Kumara, the sound of love
Daughter of the four twins
Teacher of us in trove
Have you fallen in ruin?

Love unconditional you taught
Spread in a thirteen schools
Growing in what we taught
Moving away from the fools

You awaken the heart
A chakra run by fools
None of us are apart
If we know the rule

Today as children you pursue
An ideal we all long to own
For all knew without a clue
It couldn't be you we'd atone

Sanaka, Sanatana,
Sanandana, Sanatkumara
Sages of a world so ancient
Make us forget love this instant


Violence

There is violence in me
A hate I cannot tame
I often have to flee
A thought I cannot blame

Such a dark power
For such a small mind
Not even a glimmer
Of a hope so blind

I am truly deranged
To think I can let go
Of a life estranged
By what I know

Should I fear violence?
Take it as liberation
Just like an evil dance
Without destination

No matter what I do
It's in me, it's me
I should be a fool
To ignore its beauty


Anticipation

Anticipation is the mother of all desires
A force in itself so strong none can resist
The split second before we lit the fires
That makes reason cease to exist

Striving to relive such moment forever
None of us truly know why we wish it so
To see the time when life will turn sour
Confirms, we anticipated this long ago

Every wish, every experience, even action
Speak of a truth that we foresee in our future
A state of mind that goes way beyond reason
When all dreams will lead to a single desire

Why are we so blind to endlessly ignore
That we’re not driven by a logic we possess
We play in life to simply love and adore
The moment we always wanted to repress

To give-in to anticipation is but a sin, a temptation
And to seek the goal we so cleverly designed
We have to live repressed, even without caution
Before we reach the divine climax we were assigned

It's Dark

There is a side in us all
Darker than our thoughts
A desire so primeval
It’s always been fought

An archetype of a lost past
Few realise its true power
Yet we succumb to it so fast
It feels like we’re the author

Like a perfect circle cut in two
We live between two sides
Angelique, and evil too
Following our emotional tides

Am I good cause I know bad?
Do I pursue the rightful path?
Will I ever be truly glad, sad?
Can I ever escape this wrath?

Of the questions we must ask
We can’t forgive the reality
That in us is a side so dark
We need it to reach our divinity

Of Truth and Lies

I speak my mind, for that's all I know
And for every lie I say to you also
I realize that the truth will not grow
Unless we realise, we all know it so

There is a paradox in our unified mind
To be all the same, in thought aligned
We need a diversity that cannot but bind
Even if such love will forever be blind

Yet lying is a goddess, a sweet sorrow
Taking us to a place that we, alone, cannot go
Showing a world full of our broken ego
With regrets and shame as our shadow

How to chose among the truth and lies
Unless a God has made us so wise
Where is the middle, that compromise
That I often see in the other’s eyes?

Of truth and lies I’ll speak forever
Falling between the question, the answer
To what can only be called a prayer
I’ve never been so sure of my future

Illusion

I see God in everything
Oh, bright, terrible illusion
Why do keep on coming
Ah, to be one with reason

I’m like a fool with a dream
Constantly seeing the best
Like a forever recurring theme
Never in me, always in the rest

Not by choice, nor sacrifice
This illusion’s driving me mad
Nothing I do will ever suffice
To a God who’s declared me bad

What quality will redeem
A wretched soul who’s only sin
Has been to live to the extreme
Unaware of the balance within

For in or out, stands an illusion
Call it you, another, even God
Regardless of your passion
This reality is already flawed


Knowing God

Will I ever know God
In this life or the next
Why does it seem odd
To live life as a pretext

If his presence is everywhere
His existence without limits
In his thoughts in cannot err
Why can’t we live as if it exists

Not tomorrow or the day after
But today, now, in every second
We are God as it lives for the better
Knowing we will come around

No one should wait for salvation
There is nothing, no one to save
We are who we are for a reason
To know that truth is to be brave

We know not God because we can
Whether by faith or sheer will power
We know him in this life’s span
Cause we are to be the answer

Expectations

Don't put your expectations on me
Why would you think I asked for them?
Don’t ever expect anything of me
You’ll have to be the one to blame

This is not a testament to the lazy
It’s a manifesto to those who live
No one has a life that’s really easy
Why should I be your captive?

I expect nothing from you, I can’t
I have no right to tell you what to do
Even if I’m wrong and even repent
It would be worse if I was your guru

What would you inflict the same pain?
Pretend your care and carefully judge
Another who’s only fault was to slain
An entrenched evil that wouldn’t budge

So be careful what you expect of me
The worst curse is to think you’re correct
I could return and preach the same idea
And expect you to be always perfect

Loving

It must be easy to love
If you possess the gift
But to do so at all time
Takes much out of you

Beware of all the givers
Who take without fear
They will descend on you
Like if it wasn’t tomorrow

It is often a classic truth
That to love a stranger
Is easier than a brother
Despite nature’s order

Love is such a burden
When the other decides
That you should give more
So they forget their own pain

To be loving is a choice
Few make for they pray
That the love they need
Will be given to them



A Friend She Was

For a brief slice of life
We knew her as a friend
Loaded with joy and strife
She was never bland

She came into our lives
As only a woman knows
Friend to husband, to wives
We forgot to grow close

In a thousand ways
Showering her life to all
Alive till the end of her days
She left standing tall


How do you remember
Someone you can't forget
Do you keep the better
And ignore what to regret

A friend she was
That's all there is
No more hurrahs
She is at ease


An Image, A Sound

Did you see the sound
Did you hear the image
Aren't these words profound
When you mess the verbiage

In our futile wisdom
Stand a bunch of words
Spoken in ageless rhythm
By clueless wizards

We barely dream well
So why bother thinking
We build our own hell
When we stop imagining

The beauty of an image
That we see or hear
Matches the homage
As the sound appear

What you see, what you hear
Is the fantasy of your own destiny
No one else controls your fear
As long as you know it's all clear


Awareness

Let's start a school
For awareness alone
Where all but a fool
Will call it home

We'll teach wisdom
As if it was a topic
And to kill boredom
We'll try to be meek

We'll discuss masters
Think of their thoughts
Pointing their errors
Before we're caught

And of the wrong masters
We'll try to grasp ideas
Pointing to their errors
In each of our faux-pas

We'll talk in parables
Hiding the reality
To the undesirable
Who thinks truthfully

If it could be taught
We'll all be the wiser
Relying on thoughts
To be more clever

We'll all become aware
Of the little we know
Especially when we dare
To question the status quo

Awareness is a present
We often don't deserve
Unaware that the present
Is the only place we can serve



Ball of Old Fools

As we watch our elders dance away
A life that was once theirs to waste
We can't but wonder, if that elder sway
Will be one day but ours to taste

Praise the young who can only believe
That they know all there is to know
Ignoring advice believed to deceive
As they no longer need to grow

If experience is but a teacher
Then know that we're all fools
From victory to a bed of errors
We lie without knowing the rules

Life is a dance that will one day stop
Until then, we dance with others
Even if alone, we'll reach the top
When the second reaches the hour

Oh, God of time, you spirit away
Our hope, our dreams, our fears
Nothing can ever stand in your way
As you wipe away all frontiers



Day Break

As day breaks the monotony of night
We will not wake up without a fight
As we sleep to keep the dream alive
No strange event will be kept alive

As day breaks our forced solitude
We complain with force and attitude
We'd rather be lost in a dream
Than alive in live-less scream

Day break wins every time
And looses a few hour later
There's nothing more sublime
Than the war of the hour

Of which are you the knight
Of the day, do you claim favour
Of the night, do you claim sight
Know that both are forever

Never loose control over time
For the day will come quickly
You'll redeem every crime
And might even feel sorry


Did to you

Fascinating
I just did to you
What you wanted
To do to me

But what did I do
That was so bad
Since you thought
The same thing

Now you blame
Gods and friends
For a fault
That is yours

While I claim
Innocence
In a battle
We share

I did to you
What's right
In my view
Not yours

You did to me
What's right
In your view
Not mine



Life's a circle

Life's a circle
Or a square
I see double
But where

Life's a square
Yet a circle
To be fair
All is whole

Life is a line
Coming to nil
A dot sublime
Of the one will

Turn ahead
Don't look back
Never be afraid
To miss the track

Life's a circle
We live linear
Happy trouble
We don't go far

Loves Hurt

Loves hurt, there is no doubt
With or without expectations
But unless you take that route
You'll never know its reasons

For love to be true, know this
No expectations is required
What you love is all there is
It can never be acquired

True love has no reason
And therefore cannot hurt
Yet we fail with each lesson
And expect love from a flirt

The worse cross we all bear
Is that when bruised, we fight
And kill another's prayer
Cause we hate not to be right

Who knows love without pain
Show him to me, the coward
Who has never been slain
By a feeling moving forward


Pointless

Do not resist time
It will liberate you
Show you the sublime
Teach you to be you

Fight against your will
As if it knows you
It won't remain still
Let you sin on cue

Nothing matters
Yet at this second
With nothing to offer
You can only pause

Why take the dream
A point, nothing less
Of another's theme
Of another's chess

Resist the pointless
Give it a bad name
Know that you posses
The right not to blame

Slave To No one

Slave to no one
Master to none
None have won
Till we are gone

Never depend
On another
Even a friend
Can turn sour

Be fiercely you
Stand alone
If you have to

Trust nobody
Doubt even less
You are as free
As you confess

Never be a slave
By force or choice
Always be brave
Use your voice


Strange, Weird, Bizarre, Odd Even

This world is strange

Weird, bizarre, odd even
Maybe all must change
As little of it is given

Does the will exist
To transform it all
Who wouldn't resist
A force that makes us fall

Needless to say
Mankind is at fault

Arguing our way
Till our ego exalts

It is odd, no question
That the weird, the bizarre
Attracts more attention
Than who we truly are

No point in arguing
We have to shed
This life unending
To the soul instead


Victory

There is but one victory
The one over your ego
There is but one ennemy
The one we believe so

To win or loose is a choice
But who should we believe
The world? Our inner voice?
Which God will let us live?

With so few hours left in us
We'll win this battle over death
For in passing we are victorious
Over the hold of our first breath

Here lies a truth so real
We know not how to win
Going through life with zeal
We hold on to every sin

Victory is for us to make
Out of errors and little wins
To be true, nothing to fake
Or, again, it'll all begin


Victory

There is but one victory
The one over your ego
There is but one enemy
The one we believe so

To win or loose is a choice
But who should we believe?
The world? Our inner voice?
Which God will let us live?

With so few hours left in us
We'll win this battle over death
For in passing we are victorious
Over the hold of our first breath

Here lies a truth so real
We know not how to win
Going through life with zeal
We hold on to every sin

Victory is for us to make
Out of errors and little wins
To be true, nothing to fake
Or, again, it'll all begin



Strange, Weird, Bizarre, Odd Even

This world is strange

Weird, bizarre, odd even
Maybe all must change
As little of it is given

Does the will exist
To transform it all
Who wouldn't resist
A force that makes us fall

Needless to say
Mankind is at fault
Arguing our way
Till our ego exalts

It is odd, no question
That the weird, the bizarre
Attracts more attention
Than who we truly are

No point in arguing
We have to shed
This life unending
To the soul instead

Betrayal

Betraying is not an option
It will happen, has to happen
For the most stupid reason
For our faith to deepen

A loved one, a friend
Will suffer your decision
Carry it till the end
It's their greatest treason

For they'll hide their pain
Unaware you're unaware
Thinking this new rain
Can only be yours to bear

Ourselves we punish
When we speak not
Let a betrayal flourish
Destroying all you've got

Speak with all your might
It is the only way to live
The temptation to be right
Might never let you forgive

Faithful's Call

See them walk to the square
At the call of the fading bell
They're the faithful who dare
Believe what he has to sell

Admire their faith unshaken
By a knowledge so unreal
A religion to us was given
Asking nothing but zeal

Do not question your faith
Martyr evil with questions
In your belief, be relentless
Kill all others reasons

Convince they who are wrong
Give what they know not
Use peaceful words to the strong
Or hatred to the undecided sot

If you listen to the faithful call
Do it out of a heart so pure
None will question your fall
As you face what you'll endure


Free me

Free me from pain and I'll forget
Prayers and promises I've made
But free me from any heartache
And to your will I will abide

Free me from thoughts unwanted
Give me control over my dreams
Leaving behind what's not needed
Let me select among my whims

Free me from the dependence
That others place upon me
Even though I have the chance
To ignore them and be free

Free me from a future written
In stars that I know nothing of
By a God, maybe you, smitten
Seeing his own creation takeoff

Free me from my own desires
To be more like you, perfect
Let all the fault I acquire
Be the life I truly select



Love By Any Other Name

Friendship
Closeness
Hardship
Sadness

Humour
Hate
Furor
Fate

Hope
Talk
Thought
Walk

Dance
Book
Trance
Hook

Beauty
Opinion
Free
Reason

Love by any other name
Can never be the same
This duality of emotions
Is the nicest of all prisons



See Through You

I see through you
I'm your mirror
Nothing to do
It's no error

We're each other
In this comedy
Joy and horror
Are what we see

What you do
Is what I say
And for me too
You're the way

No reason to fight
Or be at peace
You're often right
I’m but a piece

You see through me
Each other we adore
Of life we're free
That's what love's for



The Grey Rose

Facing a thousand year of pain
Any angel would give his soul
To the grey rose whose heart slain
Holds our thoughts most whole

Born in the fire of love and hate
A gift even the Gods didn't want
The core of our languishing fate
This rose, any wishes grants

Reading us before we are
Brings our secrets for all to see
Your petals reach deep and far
Making us troubled but free

Tell us this, oh Grey rose
Would you kill our hopes
If our lives would arose
Higher than your thoughts

Of the Gods who made you
Do you keep their madness
Greyed by jealousy too
Lost between joy and sadness



It's Not In Me

I don't have it in me
To live any other way
To see what I see
To say what I say

To give-up on fate
Even before hope
I'll need to so hate
A life unsought

Faking emotions
Crying till the rain
Stands out of reason
Eliminating the pain

Why shying away
From who I am
When the only way
Is to be damned

It's not in me to be
As I need to dream
To act out of folly
To die with a scream

More

You've done more for me
Than I've done for you
Without asking for a fee
Sans demander un sou

With less to our name
Than a dream of hope
We long less for fame
And more to be taught

Yet, this world of ours
Is more than we need
Our lives it devours
After we succeed

There is always more
Than we aspire to
It is deep in our core
If it's not we, then who?

For the other's at fault
As we justify our lives
Greedy without halt
Barely able to survive

You'll always do more for me
Than I can ever do for others
It is a deplorable destiny
To depend on your favours


Temptation

Lead me into temptation
Foolish Gods of this age
Make me forget reason
Me, the unwilling sage

Tempt me with your soul
Show me what it takes
To forget my sad role
To live as a true fake

Forgetting my opinion
It's value so unproven
Ignoring my position
I stand deeply uneven

It would be so easy
To see another's view
Nothing would be free
To us who nothing's due

To tempt is to want
What we can't have
Even if it will flaunt
Any pleasure we derive



Time Makes No Sense

Time makes no sense
To the untrained eye
A random sequence
Forcing us to die

To the religious
It leads to liberation
Yet they're envious
Of those with reason

To the intellectual
It's but a measure
Of that we know all
Without any pleasure

As for the rest of us
It's the sun, the moon
It makes us anxious
As it running out soon

Time makes no sense
There is only now
Yet in its defense
To pass, I'll allow


We Have

We have a power none possess
A vision of the world ours alone
What we do in our mind's recess
Is but ours to know, to own

We have the power to hurt
Ourselves, even another
Yet to love endlessly, to flirt
It is our right, our honour

We have the power to kill
With a careful thought, a word
And as our lives stand still
We are orphans, often cowards

We have the power to help
Those we love, we hate
For each emotion felt
We seal our life, our fate

We have the power to know
What no one else knows
Without restriction, nor bravado
We ignore what another shows



A Taste For The World

Develop a taste for the world
Be materialistic till the end
For life has to be hurled
To know the way to ascend

Criticise no more the pagan
Who makes love to the earth
Aware that he is a brahman
In the eyes of your birth

Try everything there is
Learn all you can learn
From health to disease
Reclaim the right to burn

Let your passions come out
Remove the barriers inside
Destroy the smallest doubt
Let the bland step aside

This taste for the world
Will follow you forever
It might feel awkward
As you are who you were


Fallen Heroes

They live in ours memories
Those who died as heroes
Marching to greater glories
Or helpers in the shadows

Ah, to be a hero in your eyes
To feel an embracing glare
So dependent on the prize
So attached to the air

Do you know such a person
Who gave life and possessions
To follow another's reason
To the highest missions

What about the simple soul
Who helped you in time dire
Without questions, nor control
Forgetting even his own desire

Those heroes who have fallen
Lead armies or a life simple
Both never to be beaten
By our ungrateful wrangle


Change

Words change my soul
That's their main duty
To reveal my life's role
And make me free

You change me further
Revealing a side of me
That none with rigueur
Can respect or agree

Changing with a thought
Following a shallow whim
Our actions have but taught
Nothing's stronger than a dream

It's in taking a different path
That we learn who we are
Where lies the greener grass
Often in a field forever afar

Change for real or to please
Another soul with whom you are
But change, never stand at ease
For you'll die before your star



Silence Speaks

Silence speaks to me
In a way words can't
Unable to even see
Their double slant

All real wisdom
Is gained in silence
Can you fathom
Such a wild trance

Silence doesn't exist
Without some noise
A twin each resist
In search of its voice

Silence actually speaks
To those ready to hear
Its soft voice, soft music
Plays without fear

Open your heart, your soul
To the role of silence true
Stop, admire, take a stroll
Take it in, as the wise do

Chance

Chance favours the ready
Or so the lucky ones say
Enjoying a life we envy
From risk we stay away

Taking a chance in life
Whether we act or learn
Unable to limit strife
Never to kill all concerns

Is there any other way
But to listen to chance
Who can truly say
The result of romance

Chance is a love affair
With a life full of wonders
Of each moment to be aware
To learn for all those errors

Take a chance, don’t give up
Stand tall and claim your right
Make mistakes, do not backup
Life is the best of all fights
Finish

Finish school, finish what you've started
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise
While by freedom you'll be tempted
To be dependent on others isn't wise

From start to finish, we stumble
Often sleeping, sometimes awaken
To a glorious role all but humble
Jeopardised by an ego unshaken

It’s easy to start anything no one needs
Giving your life to prove them wrong
Going against all odds, all good deeds
Showing them who’s truly strong

But to know what the world needs
Despite its claim for what it wants
To give it all, reframing all creeds
Ignoring pains that forever haunts

For your own sake, start doing
And once in a while, finish a few
For it is easier to be dreaming
Than to come-up with something new
Sacrifice

What would you give to get what you want
How much of your soul would you sell?
Would you bargain your life to be savant?
Would you willingly enter the gates of hell?

We want it all, without a single sacrifice
We give what we have to have more
As to evil we come of our own device
Pushed by a force we often implore

Yet sacrifice requires a belief
For with no faith in anything
Life and death can only be brief
A thought in the eyes of the dying

Feel no shame if you never give
Who’s to say that this is the way
For no one knows your true motive
Even a sacrifice can lead you astray

If you believe in sacrifice for the greater good
Pray to your God, repent your sinful ways
Use your will to seek and achieve sainthood
For your faith will not survive the end of days


The Worst, The Best

We are the worst
And yet still the best
Exploding in a burst
Of our ego’s unrest

Fleeting between the two
Living in complete insanity
As in fact we have no clue
Which one is our destiny

If you’re the worst there is
Then choose to be the best
Ignore morale for it carries
The potential to be blessed

If you’re the best in all eternity
Then learn from the worst
For in darkness lies the reality
A good thought is easily cursed

For all with no choice in the matter
Seeding the worst with our silence
Knowing that we could be better
As we live in imperfect balance





My Friend The Sun

Waking-up in the morning
Shedding the night for glory
It's a sight that few are seeing
Caught-up in their own destiny

Ah you, my old friend the sun
Growing stronger as you fade
As you start another sky run
Nourish man, each grass blade

We see you in all the shadows
Dressing our streets, our fields
In every single seed that grows
In every darkness that yields

Here before us, once a centre
We finally saw your circle
No longer the god of the hour
Yet the seal of an angel

I praise the day that saw your birth
In four spoken words you came atop
I am thankful to know your worth
And pray to never see you drop

Joy

Joy is in all moments
To realise this power
Be in the same instant
Do not think of the hour

Write about joy always
Even in deepest sorrow
It's a feeling that stays
Even with no tomorrow

It is hard to never doubt
To find joy everywhere
Yet in every word you shout
Plant a seed to kill despair

Joy is a choice we make
With our lives, our thoughts
Nothing can make us break
If we accept to be taught

Rejoice in the love that abounds
When you open your heart
To others, to the world around
See the beauty in every fart


Spiritual Overdose

When is enough truly enough
When the spiritual has no appeal
When philosophy feels like bluff
When life has nothing to reveal

Too much inner searching
Makes me forget who I am
What is it that I’m dreaming?
Why does it feel like a sham?

Reaching a point of no return
Lost between two beliefs
With no difference to discern
Isn’t it time to turn a new leaf?

But without a spiritual slant
How to live a life of meaning?
No stories to a day enchant
Is life truly worth living?

Here lies the hypocrisy
To reach such discontent
I took a path so uneasy
And lived with intent



Mundane

Behold the mundane flower
Who owns a terrible secret
The knowledge of her power
Will feel you with regrets

Behold the mundane face
Who we scorn at every turn
As she’s trying to efface
A passion that all will burn

Behold the mundane bee
Carrier of the old word
Busying herself silly
A sister well mannered

Behold the mundane thought
Carrying the essence of creation
Originating in the eternal naught
Source of the power of question

Behold the mundane
Let’s not judge what we see
It would make us insane
To be unable to foresee


Nothing

Nothing you can say
Nothing you can feel
Leave me alone today
I will find a way to heal

Why try to help me
I know who I am
One day, you'll see
I won't give a damn

But right now is mine
For a love lost, crying
Or maybe I am fine
Am simply sleeping

Either way, be gone
The strength is in me
To learn and be done
With what you can't see

There is nothing for you
It is really all about me
I will come out anew
I love life, I'll be ready


Blame

I'll never blame you
Even for that thought
You did what you knew
It's nobody's fault

Quite the contrary
Your life I admire
Being there for me
At every hour

Did you blame me
For not answering
Unwilling to see
What I'd be missing

I am to blame for all
A responsibility I fear
It's easier to build a wall
And let others be in tears

Often we blame others
For a fault of our own
Everywhere are mirrors
That easily condone


Faults & Virtues

Between fault and virtue
Choosing should be easy
Yet when nothing's due
We balance freely

Virtue has good morals
A simplicity strenuous
For all of us mortals
Nothing is so serious

Each Fault has its beauty
Cherished among Gods
How to deny them really
As they are, against all odds

Mistresses of us fools
Twin sisters of time
Evolving without rules
Your control is sublime

Oh fault, oh virtue
Do not make us choose
Give us what is true
Do not let us loose


Be a Friend

If you want friends
Be one they say
Be one till the end
There's no other way

Yet there are days
Best spent alone
As what one says
Can't be sown

And what of those
Taking for granted
That their own woes
By us be waited

What is a friend
But our own mirror
Of a different hand
Of other joys, horrors

Be a friend
Nothing matters
But the joy you send
Received by others


Failed Yet Again

Failure is not an option
It is but a way of life
A gift far from reason
The end of endless strife

To fail is to try, isn't it?
Two words many hate
Nothing is so sweet
As to win against fate

How many time must you
Before you learn reality
There's nothing to do
But to admire its beauty

Failing despite ourselves
Just as we succeed
A book full of shelves
Of all the mistakes we need

Failing is a curse
Killer of the soul
Nothing disperse
The giver of role


Jaded

There is nothing interesting
No questions really answered
All Gods eventually disappointing
No words truly meaningful
No thoughts actually challenging
This is the end of the world
Jaded to death, not ready to die
How to find the magic of life
To keep on living with hope
When all dreams are gone
No reasons left to progress
Not even a spark of sadness
Can keep us truly alive
A long list of pseudo-reasons
Keep us from moving on
Even such euphemism
Carries no meaning anymore
No pain, no joy, no present
Days are timeless, endless


Time Less

Less time makes sense
We spin around forever
Always in the past tense
We loose life in the hour

For the now is all there is
Just as yesterday was now
Tomorrow will be a tease
Another now we will allow

Timelessness is such a curse
Yet, the source of all we are
So many angels are perverse
Turning demons into a star

What is a mission without end
When the second has turned
Will you remember the hand
That was never returned

Logic and emotions fail
When time is less than it is
For every life we derail
Death comes with such ease


Place Your Faith

Place your faith in another
And you will be disappointed
Yet you might a lost brother
In the secret of a life wounded

Place your faith in the material
And you might even be fated
Yet despite annoying trials
You life could be boosted

Place your faith in the spirit
And you could be anointed
You might even have merit
And live a life enchanted

Place your faith in God
And you could be forgiven
You might even find it odd
That your sins lead to heaven

Place your faith in you
And you could be right
Between evil and virtue
You might win without a fight

But for the life of me
Your faith must be placed
None of these roads will be easy
At least, your soul won't go to waste



No Name, No Stone

How many have passed away
Forgotten, no name, no stone
Souls with nothing left to say
Lives gone, cut to the bone

Each but a library of emotions
Crushed between joy and hate
Surrendering always to passions
To their death they were not late

Remembering some in thoughts
Countless lost to the depth of time
In what dream were they caught?
Forgetting them is not a crime

Yet they made us who we are
Their simple lives mattered
They're in us, how bizarre
They silent prayer, answered

No name, no stone for the common
Only remembered by their children
They're presence was a summon
Let's live as if we were in heaven

Creation

How could the one, perfect
Create such an imperfection
Unless we are but the subject
Of the theory of the question

To create is divine for sure
Making things up from within
There is nothing more pure
To express the yang, the yin

We can all create whatever
With or, often, without an aim
To toil at it all day with ardour
Let our mind go without refrain

So we are perfect by default
Born in this state unwilling
We ignore that blessed salt
In favour of endless babbling

This given life, we created
Playing God for the fun of it
Till we realise it's enchanted
We'll praise the wrong culprit


Battles

No one wins a war
We only lose people
When we go so far
We forget our role

Battles of the many
Decided by the few
No one else can see
The reason in folly

Training, re-training
Till nothing's left to learn
Ultimate goal, winning
Even if we burn

We battled everyday
A cunning enemy
Who wants his way
We are it, you see

Listen to the call
Before the fall
So for one, for all
We battle our soul


Death Takes So Much

Death takes so much
Yet gives us so little
Unless you touch
A God so brittle

Is it the beginning
Or an end so dark
What of our being
What of our spark

Is there nothing
Is heaven waiting
For us to be dying
Of a soul never ending

Why can't we remember
What we've forgotten
Was it much brighter
Than this role given

Death has already taken
Those we loved so dear
It can wait till we're broken
To alleviate our fear


Rules

We live by rules
Or die by them
We must be a tool
In our own poem

Timeless edicts
Lost in our past
Each critics
Ideas so vast

Rules saves us
From stupidity
Never anxious
To behave badly

God or man made
They are the same
As in us we fade
When we blame

The gift of rules
Evades logic
Taking the fools
In tragic magic


The Unwritten

Some thoughts better left unsaid
Many stories, better left unwritten
As for each, the price to be paid
Is never worth the lesson given

To those living in quiet folly
As if the sake of another
Mattered more than your story
Either to not be repeated ever

If you live under codes so secret
That you know not whom you serve
One day, you will wake-up to regret
Always, getting what you deserve

To those shadows of history
You lives mattered in the end
Without you, this reality
Will not be so grand

So live as if you counted
Express you deeper opinions
Each light cannot be wasted
We are, after all, legions

In Death

In death, I cry not for the departed
I cry for my own selfish sorrow
For I bare not to be cheated
Of those who listened to my ego

Yet in it, I see the life I had
Good, bad and in between
None can truly make me sad
As I know it’s only a scene

All one we are supposed to be
Yet I can only take life selfishly
Centered in my desire to see
And judge all, ever so brashly

So everyday I see my own God
Treasuring the power he gave
Thinking that everyone is awed
By a creation that can’t behave

And in this day, I prepare death
Learning all that I’ll never need
Each as a symbol of the breath
Taken by another who breast-feeds



Meaningless

When the greatest words
No longer take you forward
When the best intentions
Are to be seen with suspicion
You know it’s the beginning
Of a life without meaning

Why fight what is inevitable
All our thoughts are brittle
Unable to resist time’s fate
As we feel not love nor hate
Towards ourselves, or the other
Unaware that we become weaker

In the days we’re meant to live
We avoid thinking, yet stay active
As we prefer not to know too much
Should reason reach us and touch
Giving our soul its true meaning
To go forth, even when dying


I am Evil

I am evil
I know that now

I am divine
I know that too

My thoughts, words, acts
Are here to serve no one but me

Your happiness, as it happens
A by-product of a misplaced will

Yet my happiness depends on you
Here lies the unknown paradox

For to know you are evil
The divine light has to be burning

I am evil
I know that now

I am divine
I know that too



The Future

Keep an eye on the future
It will soon be yesterday
In an unforgiving gesture
Time erases the way

Is it written in the stars
That you shall pass on
Should you travel far
To start, as in ‘once upon’

Is your past the source
Of a tomorrow you hate
Or but another course
In the life that awaits

Thinking only of tomorrow
And forgetting the present
Brings a reality full of sorrow
For loosing such a moment

The past , the future live today
Nothing will ever matter more
Than the second giving way
To another, a sister, a whore


What the...

What the fuck am I doing here?
Why did I forget what I'd learned?
Nothing I see is as it appears
My memories, weren’t they earned?

Why don’t I have a map, a goal?
Why aren't we working together?
To reach the ultimate whole
The one who made us actors

Where on earth is this heaven?
Than the chosen ones talk about
We constantly have to outrun
The feelings that make us doubt

Where am I going at such speed?
Will I be better off once there?
Why am I judged by my deeds?
What of thoughts and nightmares?

What the fuck am I doing here?
Why come if it’s to go back?
There, there was nothing to fear
Here, everything is rather black


Listen to Nature

Listen to nature, it speaks not
Yet its every word transcend
Everything we thought we forgot
From the beginning till the end

Nature was here before us
As a planet, a god, a goddess
As we remain fearful, anxious
We know it knows we’re careless

We’ve forgotten the words in the wind
They’re truth has gone from our lips
The old contract we chose to rescind
And live by the wit of our quips

Of all the problems we’ve ever faced
Nature had the answer all along
As the sons of the fallen, the disgraced
We thought we would never be wrong

Listen to nature, to God, it’s the same path
In the Garden of Eden we already live
And to those who believe in its wrath
Never forget nature’s capacity to forgive



Without Sound

Life is sound
Words are sound
Music is sound
Life is sound

Sound of life
Plays simply
Endless strife
Our glory

Words vibrate
Dance eternal
Forever eight
Nothing final

Music lives
In all hearts
All captive
Divine Art

Without sound
We cease
Nothing abound
We decrease


Connected

How are we connected
You I know nothing of
What string enchanted
Can never keep us off

You are my mirror
As you sit facing me
It’s not an error
We are who we see

Each thought you claim
Belongs to me, to another
As we are but the same
Yet we’ll never surrender

As we watch our lives differ
Unaware we think the same
We couldn’t be prouder
Of the one we’re about to blame

We are children of the same thought
A word we have long since forgotten
We strive to ignore what we’ve taught
To ensure no one will ever listen



Don’t

Don’t let me destroy you
In my thoughts, in my words
With you, I want nothing to do
Rather than act as a bastard

Don’t even think of the same
For I’ll fight till the bitter end
Realise, this is not a game
It’s for our lives that we fend

Don’t criticize what you know not
Embrace it, ignore it, pass it on
For an idea could save our lot
Unless killed by a moron

Don’t let me define you
For what do I know
I barely have a clue
Of my own ego

Don’t, simply don’t
Yourself you must build
As others won’t
Stop when fulfilled



The Fourth Day

On the fourth day
The sun shone
The moon gave way
Greater, lesser, alone

Since such elusive lights
We’ve learned much more
Yet we still keep up the fight
Uncertain of what to adore

The fourth day lights
Of such outer dimension
Gives us no insights
Not even a reason

This truth we seek
Makes us mad
For we are weak
Possibly sad

As what you seek
Comes in three
A trinity mystique
Inwards, we’re free



Giving-up

Giving-up is a strange sensation
Lost between a reason, an emotion
It feeds upon itself without aim
For a life we can no longer claim

To give-up is a sign of weakness
A gift we own, often senseless
A reason to take another road
An excuse for a logic flawed

Yet it also demonstrate strength
As we often go to great length
To justify one way or another
A reason we chose for the better

Yet in the many crossroads we face
To let go of a way without disgrace
We need to decide which to take
And choose the one to forsake

Choices make us who we are
Our hearts are constantly at war
Between giving-up or taking
The right road without asking


More Than One

Can you love more than one God
And still be faithful to one only
Would such belief be really odd
Against what we know of reality

What about a friend, a spouse
Wouldn’t you be split apart
Such feeling would arouse
A confusion without a start

For one, the heart wasn’t meant
It belongs to all who truly love
One another without restraint
Without any fear from above

Yet, to learn such a lesson
We need to face heartaches
Without the fear of treason
Ready to make every mistake

For more than one, we were made
As time passes for such reason
To experience a life that evades
Those choosing to ignore the lesson


Nature of Light

It is the real nature of light
To change the mind of nature
Opening the doors of delight
Showing our true future

Darkness would have us endure
A life devoid of the true light
In order to simply ensure
That we die without a fight

The simple candlelight
Can take a sad, dark room
And turn the wrong to right
Chasing forever the gloom

Open your eyes, see the sun
Burning in each other’s heart
Ready to take off and run
Away from what keeps us apart

Such is the nature of light
AS it changes our nature
Giving us that god given right
To be who we are, to nurture



Nothing

There’s nothing I want
No one I want to meet
No foolish pride to flaunt
Nothing won, no defeat

Nothing has meaning
If you’re alive but alone
Come to the beginning
Live what we’ve known

Nothing makes sense
Today or tomorrow
Not even the sequence
Of the time we borrow

Nothing can be felt
If you have no heart
As you’ve been dealt
A soul unable to start

The world was nothing
It will become again
We are but a plaything
Not even the son of men



The Answer

The answer you seek is not in books
It resides neither in words nor in symbols
It’s not written in the stars, don’t look
It wasn’t even written by angels

The answer resides in the question
The one you ask as you wonder
Is this life I own without reason
Does it lead to something better

Here lies a truth we have forgotten
We read without being challenged
By the very thought that’d christen
The new life in which we’d plunged

To search the answer you seek
You need to change your words
Learn reality and its mystique
Listen to the language of the birds

Every question brings its answer
Not in the new idea you received
In the process which got you closer
As you learn not to be deceived


Everything We Know

Everything we know matters not
Let’s face it, knowledge is futile
The end is not what we thought
We can keep a life so fragile

As you search to know more
Often more than you need
But creating an idol to adore
Knowledge becomes a creed

We are simple mortal beings
Fearful of the everlasting limit
Searching a different ending
To a life all too often pathetic

How do we grow out of such a rut
Do we take the left or right path
Staying honest or prone to shortcuts
An atheist attacked by God’s wrath

And here lies a paradox ancient
We’d forgotten our true way
Relearn to be a being sentient
Then you’ll know it’s child’s play


God’s Work

Are we free to do God’s work
Or is Satan a better employer
In my life, am I but a clerk
Or the star of the morning hour

God’s work seems so far fetch
No knowing where to begin
Our souls we need to stretch
Dead to what we could’ve been

Should we choose the evil glory
Even if for but a moment in time
To be on top, never to feel sorry
Till the call of the angel sublime

If we are of the same blessed image
Why don’t I know right from wrong
Why do I need to become a sage
To understand where I belong

God’s work might be our curse
As we aim to become one again
Tempted by what is perverse
Yet both have the same aim



Heal

Heal thyself, Son of God
Learn the ancient ways
Decide when to be awed
Set your heart ablaze

You own your medicine
In strength, in weakness
Wherever you’ve been
Teach what is ageless

Deep within the recess
Of your soul eternal
Find the word priceless
The sound verbal

Once you’ve learned
What all have let go
Repeat in pure pattern
As above so below

And within no time
You will be at ease
Aware of the sublime
Owner of the lilies


Journey To Madness

I traveled the senseless road
To the eternal end of time
Where reason was flawed
And folly taken for sublime

I passed the valley of fantasy
Unaware that I was in it
I would have walked slowly
If I knew where were my feet

Climbing the mountain of hope
I found the unheard off-reality
Where the mirror had to elope
To reflect on its silly destiny

Following the river of dread
Where all I knew drowned
Of myself, I stayed ahead
After all, I was going around

In the end, nothing stopped
Starting again the same journey
I had to decide what to adopt
Madness, folly or to never be



Sphinx

Answer the eternal riddle
Show me the ages of man
Our civilisation’s cradle
Where it all began

On all four we start
Of mind and soul
Neither is apart
Two in one whole

As we reach the two
We think for ourselves
Where nothing is new
Books are on shelves

When the third appear
We comfort our destiny
Open our hearts to hear
The call of this reality

Finally, the sphinx reappears
Ready to listen to our answer
Did we waste all those tears
Waiting for the ever after


Wanting Nothing

Out of life, I want nothing
To simply give my whole
Reach the eternal ending
Where I will know it all

In those years in between
Tearing out the book of days
To re-write what I’ve seen
Teaching all in my ways

Listening to my own voice
I’ll repeat the word of Adam
Taking control of each choice
Repeating it ad nauseam

When all would have heard
We’ll stop thinking differently
Humanity finally centered
All able to see so clearly

Then I’ll let go of my ego
And stop learning everything
I’ll experience the true zero
I’ll be wanting nothing



Cloudy Sun

Cloudy sun in morning glory
You’ve taken away our hope
Yet your are strong, without pity
Your light shines down our slope

It was a morning like any other
Yet a few knew it was the end
They had prepared for that hour
While the rest talked among friends

Life will never be the same
Without the gold and blue
We’ll strive without aim
Mildly aware of what we knew

Our paths will cross again
As they did yesterday
Trying to remember in vain
What it felt like to know the way

Oh cloudy sun, how cruel
You stand in perpetual motion
I shall miss this eternal duel
As you’ll win without questions



Time and Time Again

The secret of life is not in love
As the opened heart sees
It’s in time below and above
That we learn life’s degrees

Time gives us a simple joy
To experience in sequence
All that we truly hate, enjoy
From the mild to the intense

Allowing us to think through
What we want to do next
To ignore or follow the queue
Of events within their contexts

Without it we can’t appreciate
The romance of a love lost
We wouldn’t be able to wait
Till we’ve paid life’s full cost

Time and time again we gain
An extraordinary chance to live
And eventually, to humbly attain
The ability of our love to give



East to West

Move along, the east
A soul never rests
It’s no small feast
To reach the west

Born in the east
Afraid of the west
Where the beast
Is wholly obsessed

Born in the west
Thinking the east
A thought expressed
Doesn’t even exist

From east to west
We live in agony
Dying without rest
Intertwined destinies

Move along, the West
It’s no small feast
For a soul to not rest
Till it’s in the east


The Evil Carnival

Dance, twisted marionette
Never stop, never give-in
You will one day forget
Where you have been

Star of an evil carnival
Led by a hidden master
Fighting the eternal rival
Source of this disaster

Drawn in the same image
Resembling a lost puppet
Unaware of the damage
Caused when you’re upset

You move rather awkwardly
Through thoughts and ideas
Thought to behave badly
As you ignore their dogma

All the clowns, the animals
Join you in an eternal dance
The moral of this evil carnival
Is you don’t stand a chance


The Ochre Tree

Standing in majesty on the hill
The ochre tree knew its place
In elated destiny, it was its will
To face the sun’s embrace

In the burning morning sun
In the evening disappearing
Can’t see where each begun
Married in colour blurring

Many came to rest and pray
Faced with a life unnerving
Twirled in its endless ballet
They came to finally begin

Sleeping under its shade often
I knew peace’s true meaning
A lack of needs that threatened
The livelihood of the dying

It is still there, the ochre tree
Majestic and always inviting
I shall return to pray and see
A friend always so forgiving


Of this World, I Know Nothing

Of this world, I know nothing
Passing through seven gates
I catch a glimpse of me dying
Watching stages of my fate

In this world, I know even less
Passing through cycles of seven
The many sins I should confess
None can close the door to heaven

This is a world of many failures
Each teaching what we need
With every word, a soul conjures
The destinies that’ll make it bleed

No matter what spirit you claim
You are bound in a machine
That has but no other aim
Than to teach the unseen

In this world, of this world
Pray to know the difference
A simple yet powerful word
Can change your balance



Less Than That

To be less than what you could be
Is an insult to the spirit within
No matter what you say or see
Life needs you to change, to win

Born with an infinite potential
We squander our gift of time
Thinking tomorrow will be special
We forget to live in this lifetime

We learn who we are from others
Seeking validation in another’s eyes
Yet all along, we seek answers
Already within us, under disguise

From time to time, an epiphany
Shows the truth that was there
We are one, of the same destiny
Even when opinions are everywhere

Divine you are, to be less than that
Is the biggest sin you can fathom
Choose to be an eagle or a rat
Either way, the end is in freedom



Solomon's Mission

Solomon's mission
Shows the way
Carried by masons
One stone a day

Leading mankind
Into its own body
The flame entwined
Let the spirit see

In degrees three
The light opens
A mind to study
A road to eleven

Start with a question
Surrender the answer
There is no real reason
In becoming better

Solomon's mission
Knows the way
Carried in passion
One stone a day


The Seer

A seer sees what’s not yet
Predicting what to avoid
Showing a life at the onset
Allowing us to fulfill the void

We remember the past
Molding it to our desires
Yet the future’s so vast
We forget as it expires

What special skills
Must I learn to see
A mission to fulfill
The end of a journey

I am no seer, for sure
Yet I often foresee
Everything I endure
In pain, in glory

What if the seer told
About the life to be had
Ah, to be so bold
Ah, to be so bad

We are Raindrops

We are raindrops
Of the same cloud
Screaming all the way
Joining our essence

We’re born in conflict
Strong and fulfilled
Broken into pieces
Falling together

As we fall, we live
Separate but together
Time, speed, increasing
Hitting our destination

Once there, our soul
Goes back to origin
Lighter, brighter, simpler
Alive, purest sense

We will come again
Different but the same
Raining as we must
Alive and well meaning
The Brethren

Thirteen we met first
Under Napoleon's beams
Scotland quenched our thirst
This wasn’t a dream

Lying around in disorder
Talking it all without logic
We were the creators
Of our world of magic

Each word we shouted
Fell on rather deaf hears
For each other we courted
And rally all to our fears

Nothing secret nor worthy
Came out of our souls
For we were quite unruly
In establishing our goals

The brethren is a society
Of fouls, not of strangers
We carry on our destinies
Until we’re all victors

The Music we Say

In the time an hour take
I heard the sound of life
The music we all make
Notes of love and strife

Some words, a melody
Noise of many thoughts
On the stone of eternity
Imprint what we’re taught

An hour without music
We’ll befriend even death
There is no other magic
Than the sound of our breath

Not all will appreciate
Such cacophony
In unison we vibrate
Makers of a sound reality

The music we say
Pray that it will last
It’s the price to pay
It will go so fast


Effacing our Street

Effacing a street’s name
Is but killing our History
We will never be the same
When loosing our own story

Just like effacing one’s name
To destroy his soul, his goal
Even a Pharaoh is to blame
In this forever pointless control

Every day, officials play God
With a town’s unique memory
Written in tears, joy and blood
Listen to their ephemeral glory

Forgetting what it was named
We remember where it lead us
We will always be blamed
For losing many wise elders

The grass will grow again
Thoughts will come back
It can never be forgotten
We’ll walk again in its track



The Bed

The bed is so comfy
It keeps on calling me
It’s all that I can see
I am so very sleepy

We mate, we dream
We cry, we scream
We go to extreme
In the bed supreme

We part with sorrow
So that we can grow
In the day’s dying glow
We return to what we know

We lie without pretense
Alive in a dream so dense
We are without defense
We loose in every sense

There is but one bed
As my ancestors said
In which you’ll play dead
In which you’ll be wed


Odd Friends

I have as my better friends
The oddest of characters
For each I would die, defend
Against all sorts of wankers

To be part of such an elite
I can’t claim any sanity
We live to the same beat
Truly devoid of your reality

To be odd, just see differently
Ignore convention and dogma
Decide that the true beauty
Lies beyond this closed vista

I question everything they say
Aware they don’t mean any of it
It’s a circular illogic game we play
Endlessly made-up as we see fit

We are odd, but we’ll be friends
When you lay cold, alone and flat
For in our mind, there is no end
To this brotherhood under one hat



Anthem Nation

Listen to your anthem
Think of those before
Feel words so solemn
They sing forevermore

Speaking of freedom
Gained on battlefield
In spring, in autumn
A destiny revealed

An author like you
Sat and thought
What would we do
If no one had fought?

Would we be free, alive
Ready to face destiny
Or simply able to survive
Under another’s glory

The struggle of a nation
Plays in the hearts of the dead
Every time you cry with passion
Those words that can’t be left unsaid



Nothing Good

Nothing good came out of being honest
A truly peculiar and surreal philosophy
Spoken in a moment truly earnest
When questioned about this reality

Nothing good came out of telling lies
On the same day, same train of thought
We accept it without questions, yet it defies
The real stories of those who need your vote

Do you know the old hypocrite’s oath?
Claiming truth to be universal, blameless
Are you aware that we must have both
To truly understand our own noblesse

So, will you think on your own terms
Or accept without a doubt that word
Are you ready to let yourself learn
What everyone else has already heard

Nothing good came out of being honest
Nothing good came out of telling lies
Why question it? Can’t you let it rest?
In doing so, you might finally rise



I Not Understand

What’s with languages?
And their constructions
Some birthed in the ages
Other as new as fashion

What’s with their constructions?
Their rules, grammar, accents
Some have their own reasons
Others are sons of events

We think, we speak, we write
We write as we pretend to speak
We think what we say is alright
In that way, as a kind, we’re unique

We spell the same word differently
Among ourselves, even ourselves
We change and mold reality
In books lost on bookshelves

I don’t understand
I do not understand
I donot understand
I not understand


Mind

My mind’s no longer mine
I lost it on the way here
It won’t make a headline
I know it’s somewhere near

It’s such a fleeting thing
Neither here nor there
Sensing it without asking
We know we are aware

I can argue my case well
With another, as an equal
Yet everything that we sell
Is rarely true or factual

As I supposedly grow wise
The certainties of my youth
For which I’d let you die
They’re no longer the truth

Why is it here, with us?
Easily confused with a drink
I suspect I am conscious
What do you think?



One Hundred Steps

Everyday, for so many years
I climbed a hundred steps alone
For the right to learn, to culture
For the right to be my own

No questions, it was the path
Between home and school
No hatred, no common wrath
They sat, facing me, the fool

Each step but a short barrier
Taken in stride, all the way
To reach the ultimate altar
The top, where all would pray

Climbing-up started our day
The same way down, closed it
A temporal ritual, an ancient ballet
Where all kids were getting fit

I miss those stones without end
That’s how it felt before the first
Just as an initiation would intend
We learned by being immersed



The Supreme Cause

Fighting our way through a life unwanted
Spent focusing on the value of a stone
Forgetting the supreme cause of the gifted
To develop a spirit we can call our own

As nations separated from religion
It’s time for faith to create its own rift
To leave dogma, regain its passion
To truly understand, it is its own gift

No matter whether you’re rich or poor
Your supreme cause is the same as mine
To develop your spirit and truly implore
Your own divinity, and stop being so blind

It is far fetched to search for it outside
When all along it was entrenched inside
Sometimes buried, often willingly denied
In some cases, even killed by pride

The supreme cause is for us to take
To make it ours, to love and cherish
It nourishes our soul, turns it awake
No matter if you follow a god or a fetish


I Fight

I fight the intolerant
Teachers who crush
The less than ignorant
The infant in a rush

I fight ignorance
In me and others
With faith, science
I test our valour

I fight the words
That kill innocents
Speaking like a bird
Often barely decent

I fight weakness
Mostly just mine
Avoiding blandness
In the thoughts I design

I fight my own battle
With no one else
It’s my cage I rattle
I fight myself



Greed & Faith

Greed so tempting
Faith so fragile
What’s winning
Isn’t it futile

Desires rule
Unchecked
Make us full
In all aspects

Faith’s a choice
Without thinking
It is the voice
That’s asking

We sway all day
One’s natural
The other, a way
We’re so fragile

Aim for balance
Or choose either
Both the essence
Of this creature

Hate

The urge to hate is strong
A river of lava in the veins
In an instant, all's wrong
Hating everything in vain

The world has changed
Taken over by pain
A joyless sun is blamed
For such a sinful stain

To hate with a passion
Rarely seen in nature
After losing all reason
The night we must endure

No one truly knows why
We suffer such a fate
Yet at the moment we die
We know it's not too late

To hate can't be divine
As such we assume
Unaware the sublime
For it, make room


Expensive

Oh, wasted life, so expensive
Costing its owner, and you
Working without reprieve
Yet so little we truly do

A second is an expense
Against life's account
Arrogance, even pretense
What do we want?

We loose a life given
Wasting time joyfully
Yet the gift's uneven
As we steal mercilessly

Life is a precarious balance
As we take, so we must give
It's almost like a romance
The middle is to forgive

A life wasted doesn't come back
We might as well invest it all
Feeling, loving, being out of whack
We might as well have a ball



Creature of Midnight

I'm creature of the night
I prowl in search of a fight
Creating an atmosphere so tight
I see you, my prey, finally in sight
Innocent victim, sleep tight
Under a moon silver and bright
Striving in the absence of light
Reflecting shadows give fright
You know not what you ignite
As you cross to the twilight
Whether wrong or right
We dance a soulless rite
Who knew that what we unite
Are an Angel, a Devil, tonight
Everything will be all right
As you know, it is midnight



Demon's Whispers

Are my thoughts all true?
Are they a demon's whispers?
The truths I know are few
Some even belong to the hour

When I calm my confused mind
Do I hear gods or angels talking?
A noisy chatter of the blind
Unaware of where I'm walking

If it sounds too good, is it truly so?
Is it disguised to make us fall?
Is this the path we must follow?
What's the answer? Is it a riddle?

Though we know how to question
The answers are most uncertain
Doubting the source and its reason
Unable to see who’s behind the curtain

What is a demon’s whisper?
When the words are so familiar
We’re not that good a reader
Often taking the truth of a liar



Universal Moral

One universal moral
Has to exist in time
A word that says it all
A thought sublime

Searching eternally
For a truthful reason
Nothing exist really
Life’s but a prison

Yet to deny reality
Is a waste of time
For we are, really
Children of I am

As of the original word
No one ever thought
To keep a record
Of what was taught

Why do such a thing
As it is universal
So it’s in your being
In the good, in the evil


Another Day

It was just another day
As the few who cared
Had simply passed away
Finally, eternally spared

Yet it’s never a simple day
For in all, all is possible
As there is but one way
To define the unreasonable

Tomorrow, today, yesterday
Three days in which we live
Two can lead you astray
One can leave you pensive

Tomorrow, will you be there?
To see the sun rise again
Or will you finally be aware
That no light shines in vain

There will be another day
For our children to see
If we come back this way
Let us remember happily

The Night

The night leaves traces
That the soul remembers
Wearing a million faces
We have to surrender

Living in an altered state
Just as real as the past day
We can take risks, tempt fate
If we only knew the way

Life we can't control
Dreams even more so
In both we play a role
In each we must grow

Initiate of the night
Remember the lessons
That you can't be right
If you're pure reason

Respect the night
As it takes you whole
Tomorrow, the light
Will give you all




In The Moment

To be in the moment
Is to miss no one, nothing
Beyond being content
Life finds its meaning

In that eternal second
You are indivisible
Passing beyond
All are equal

Wisdom is revealed
Not by words or songs
But a light unsealed
Nothing is wrong

You see it all
Life’s true sense
Truly adorable
Sincerely immense

The past, the future
Exist no longer
Nothing to endure
Nothing maters


Thank you for…

Thank you for…

The days gone by
The lives, the loves
The screams, the sighs
The bees, the doves

The young, the old
The mistakes, a few
The stories we told
The idiot, the guru

The passion, the sex
The food, the drinks
The words of an ex
The eternal sphinx

The work, the money
The truth, the doubts
Chocolate covered honey
And those darn trouts

But most of all, I have to say
Some things could not have been
Without the ultimate birthday
So thank you for my passing



Thinking It’s all Me

Thinking it’s all me
Would be arrogant
Denying, you see
A God so ancient

Thinking it’s all me
Would take you out
We wouldn’t agree
Each on his route

Thinking it’s all me
Would claim the life
Of an innocent baby
As it shies from strife

Thinking it’s all me
Would make me bitter
Of all I had not be
Oh, to have been better

Thinking it’s all me
Removes the divine
No one will be free
No one will be fine


Remember

Who will ever remember
Who fell in love, who didn’t?
Who’s worse, who’s better?
Who’s an idiot, who’s brilliant?

The memories of man are shallow
We mold them to suit our needs
We forget what we don’t want to know
We keep what we need to succeed

The same thought, the same action
Is remembered differently by all
Balancing between fact and fiction
We teach the truth on what we recall

Yet all we are has been recorded
For all to see today and forever
Our sins and all we hold sacred
Kept in a stone truly stellar

Who can read from this book
But the one who’s writing it
For we all know where to look
Inside, where the soul sits

Last Sun

Seeing the sun for the last time
Sadly aware that in the morrow
Life will finally become sublime
As we forget our fear and sorrow

It was a sun like any other day
Round, brilliant, edgeless
Always ready to give way
To the Goddess moon no less

Though this morning it was back
Unchanged, just as we remembered
We knew something wasn’t quite right
As if all questions had been answered

Yet the last day passed without doubts
Somehow everyone knew their destinies
Without a word, a cry or even a shout
We marched into the night with ease

The last sun will not be our end
No dogma can convince us of that
It will be just like an old friend
Ready to listen, ready to chat



Killing Destinies

Starting every forth century
With a renewed sense of hope
We sense the end of reality
As a knot in a mystical rope

Shattered on the battlefield
Cause we think we think better
Such hope we’d better conceal
Till it’s time for the thereafter

The thoughts of tomorrow
Bathed in faith and joy
Always find their echo
In what we can destroy

To protect our own destiny
As we fear all new ideas
We kill and shield bravely
Those with different auras

In their death life resonates
Ready to forgive the few
Who‘d leave all to their fate
Letting them be true


Forgiveness

To forgive would force me to judge
Anyone who would comes to me
I often think my way, I do not budge
A dogma made from what I see

I think I’m right rather than not
Who could argue with my logic
My truths, my beliefs are all I got
You don’t believe me, oh cynic?

I’m told forgiveness is divine
By good thinkers and well doers
For those who cross the line
Expect nothing from such actors

Here lies a fallacy in thinking
To forgive you must have judged
Doing therefore the evil’s bidding
Your reputation forever smudged

Do not question my authority
And I will not question yours
Leave me to fail beautifully
Let me not close any doors



Small Things, Big Things

It’s in the small things
That big ones are born
It’s only the beginning
Of a story well worn

We tend to make mountains
Out of so many molehills
Yet aren’t we the captains
Of our souls, our minds, our wills?

Some see the devil in details
Others see God in all splendour
Breaking free of dogmatic tales
Is the only way to become better

A small light will shatter darkness
Though it’s easy to kill it soon
The right idea will do no less
No one can ever be immune

A big thing today shrinks tomorrow
We never live in the same world twice
A small thing blows-up tomorrow
Seek both, it’s the only price



Crossroad

Am at another crossroad
Unsure of turning where
Choices are all so broad
Success, all so rare

How did I end here again?
Lost among uncertainty
It’s all confusing, all so Zen
Even not choosing is a reality

Though I can turn around
Look or walk in my past
Hoping that this time round
I’ll make choices that last

Should I turn? Go straight?
Call the Devil for advice?
After all, nothing dictates
That my mind will suffice

I’ll choose eventually
To but move forward
Waiting ever so eagerly
As the road turns inward



The Lost World

The past is all but lost
Like a world forgotten
We want at all cost
To come back often

Time goes but one way
Our mind cannot fathom
That any of the old days
Could again become

So a story is made
To remember them
And as they fade
They leave a poem

Yet but once is time
An eternal second
A timeless crime
Against reason

A second has passed
And that world is lost
It’s but life’s impasse
It’s the price, the cost












An Innocent’s Death

What makes us kill children
Without even an afterthought
Are we so lame, so broken
That we’re no longer distraught

Spare me the taint of an apology
How do we know how one feels
When a loved one is taken from thee
We will know the depth of the ordeal

Innocence cannot be learned
It’s a birth gift we all possess
No one returns to be burned
We come to show noblesse

So why kill the innocent?
What could they have done?
Showing hatred to an infant
Forces us to go on and on

Are you innocent, son of sin
Didn’t your god tell you so?
Is your patience’s wearing thin
In the light of another’s halo



Shadow On My Soul

There is a shadow on my soul
A sense of satisfied despair
Unsure of what is my role
I know what should be fair

Was I born with this defect
An ancestral affliction
Passed to sons as an object
A heritage beyond reason

I live with it as my shadow
Follows my every moves
I noticed it so long ago
I no longer of it disapprove

It is with me often for worse
Tainting any sound judgment
Some would it call it a curse
Yet it looks like a talent

There is a shadow on my soul
Yet it affects only my mind
Perfection remains whole
Free of what makes me blind



Trying Not To Hide

Trying hard not to hide anything
I hold the deepest secret of old
I know a word so soothing
It will turn lead into pure gold

You know it well, heard it before
Felt it sounded rather pleasant
Unaware that it would restore
Any soul that became absent

Know that it was never truly lost
It traveled in speech and stories
Hidden from the useless frost
Of frozen hearts and memories

You might speak it rather often
Thinking it must belong to you
It’s universal, next time listen
You might learn a thing or two

I try hard to hide absolutely nothing
Yet if I told you what that word was
You’d think that I must be kidding
You knew it before it ever was



Ripped

A heart ripped apart
Bleeding from the soul
Aware from the start
This wasn’t the goal

It began open ended
With nothing to hide
Talking as if haunted
By a joy without pride

Growing into passion
Lost in world unaware
We lived beyond reason
Letting everyone stare

I didn’t see it coming
It ended without a word
It was just a morning
Yet a sunset so absurd

My heart is eternally ripped
Nothing can replace that
One day I’ll change the script
And regain what you spat



The Moment

Take the moment seriously
So you can have fun in it
Not all that passes as reality
Is painful, or even sweet

Is the moment all there is?
Cause we seem to flow
In each second with ease
We can only but follow

In a moment life has passed
Years in a frozen second
Every action crumbled
Into one eternal sound

The moment is a gift
That stays in the present
Forever still, forever adrift
Only a God can grant

So, yes, we only have a moment
To express our love, our feelings
To regret for being absent
To forgive and be life giving



Same God

We pray to the same God
In our houses of stones
Yet others seem odd
As we judge the unknown

Their books are our books
Ancient, given from above
Different paths we took
To reach the same love

We fight each other
Over a finer point
Yet in that funeral hour
We’ll end in the same joint

Religions and philos
Rise to your teachings
Let go of your egos
Count your blessings

We will not wait for you
To evolve and mature
We’ll create without ado
A spirituality that endures



The Dream of Death

The dream of death is powerful
It decides on the fate of religions
It creates the belief we need to rule
Over others, over our passions

Faultless in his eternal progression
Inevitable from the very first start
We over thought its primal reasons
Thinking we’d never take it to heart

Yet a dream is but a dream
Never to decide our fates
An endless thought stream
Irresponsible in what it creates

Death is the ultimate door
Shared between two realities
Each thinking there is more
On the other side of the key

The dream of death will not end
Nor will it start to make sense
It matters not if we make amends
It’s all but pure nonsense



Evolved Descent

We're not monkeys
They behave better
They hold the keys
To our real nature

We think we’re evolved
Yet we lost so much
Wisdom has dissolved
In the hands of a church

Behaving like animals
We shame our cousins
Preferring not to battle
Watching over our coffins

Our words are complex
Having lost all senses
We’re so far the apex
Where it truly commences

Our evolution is descending
We know what we’re doing
The beasts will keep breathing
As we argue our undoing



A Good Day

A good day is one when I barely sin
When everything seems normal
No temptations shows within
I’ve lost the will, the desire to fall

A good day is when your smiles
Refresh my reasons for living
They’re like decorated tiles
On the wall of time never ending

A good day is when we trust all
Aware that the world we see in
We designed to rest our souls
Teaching others a life never ending

A good day is when I let God
Reach deep to the end of me
As I realise, isn’t that odd
That he is me, that we are he

A good day starts with you
When we share thoughts, ideas
There is nothing we can’t do
When we’re unprotected by dogma



The Unlake

We swim in it often
The unlake has no end
Its shores are beaten
Just like an old friend

We walk it never alone
Surrounded by soul mates
Who are ready to condone
Our deeply rooted hate

Many lives are hurt
By its unnerving waves
Relentless yet in concert
Erasing even the braves

We all have to cross it
To reach the same shore
We might even commit
To its endless rancor

If you haven’t guessed
The name of the unlake
Prepare to be a guest
As despair for you waits




Word Power

I know the words to melt you down
And others to hurt you forever deeply
I use them precisely, they're sound
That vibrates your soul unwary

Front the first, second and last
They shape your life, your destiny
Just like time, they pass so fast
Never to retain your memory

They are evil in their beauty
Unable to forgive, nor forget
They remind us of our frailty
In each of the seconds we regret

We were here before they were
We made them what they are
We forgot that it was in anger
We created words to go far

They’ll go when we remember
That we think best in images
Conveying the secret we’re after
Eternal wisdom of the ages



The Gift

Nothing, you are saying
Until you are singing
To the living, the dying
Only that has a ring

It’s your voice we crave
Your thoughts so brave
Why would you deprave
All those you can save

Speak often and loud
Make us so very proud
That you’re allowed
To know this crowd

Carry all of us far away
With sounds that sway
So that maybe, someday
We’ll know the true way

What you have is a gift
With it, any soul you’ll lift
Do not let it ever go adrift
Make us ready for the shift



Too Many

Too many words
Not enough flowers

Too many thoughts
Not enough trees

Too many discussions
Not enough horizons

Too many viewpoints
Not enough reason

Too many clowns
Not enough laughter

Too many philosophers
Not enough wisdom

Too many dancers
Not enough dancing

Too many actors
Not enough life



Ego Minister

I minister to myself
I am my biggest flock
I stand on a bookshelf
To listen to me talk

I write my own sermons
As I preach to me alone
I cast my own demons
I’m the angel who’s flown

I give my own blessings
To my every thoughts
I am the eternal being
Who no one has fought

I create my own rituals
Facing the true mirror
Eating the only apple
Unleashing my horror

I am the minister of my ego
I listen for I speak the truth
There’s no one I can follow
I’m the fountain of youth


Stop

My mind often tells me stop
And I sometimes listen to it
Thinking she’s lost the plot
That annoying little twit

I carry-on often illogically
Going so far out of reason
Even if she doesn’t agree
Let’s get out of that prison

So I live balancing between
Logic and sweet emotions
Knowing neither can ever win
They are too many options

After all, why stop when it’s fun
What dictates what I should do?
Society or experience makes me run
Yet do they really have a clue?

Thinking my mind was my own
I pass my days in the clouds
Looking down on the unknown
Of my own personal crowds



Everybody's worthy

Everybody's worthy
No exceptions
If you disagree
You have reasons

Yet you are worthy
Even if your actions
Can make you weary
They are common

Truly, what we do
Counts little finally
We have no clue
As to this reality

Yet in the moment
Simply do unto others
What to you is pleasant
We are all beggars

Everybody’s worthy
A truth hard to accept
We think so surely
We’re a better adept



In its Absence

In the absence of truth, we have humour
Here lies another eternal irony
For in humour, rests the truth’s odour
As we laughs, recognising its verity

This is not a poor substitution
It’s its essence distillated in words
With faces, sounds or actions
To laugh is the way only forward

Truths is not always present
We miss it only when it’s gone
So to survive without resentment
We crack jokes till the new dawn

It’s also hard to accept from another
So the master creates a story
Hiding reality behind a blunder
Till you accept its undeniable veracity

Having a sense of humour is a gift
Cherish it, nurture it, even share it
Do not let the righteous go adrift
Thinking it’s a sin we should omit

Descent

I had my descent into he'll
And it was good, fulfilling
I found something to sell
That was never ending

There was everyone I knew
It felt like coming home
It was finally all so true
I would never be alone

Some had been there so long
They'd forgotten everything
There, nothing was wrong
That truth was appealing

I'd still be there I believe
If not for his intervention
To belong here you must believe
As it is beyond any reason

This was a dream, not a reality
I had to face this painfully
Hell only exist in our destiny
When we imagine it faithfully


No Longer

Unable to appreciate the moment
Preferring the past, even the future
Finding n
