Impetus within
Hopeful bellies
Never maximized
Grim tempest nigh
As raging egos
Cloud our children’s vision
Truly strange days
So pale
Plagues the Promised Land

Sultry eyes
Gently closed
Poetic words
Still dance
Across her shaded lids
Acutely aware
Deeper message lingers

WORDSMITH MANIFESTO......(Chocolate chip tranquility)

Such a fine line exists
Between sanity
Stark psychosis
I straddle it daily
Ever veering
From one precipice to the other
At times
Daring myself to jump
Does one ever achieve true balance?
I have spent 48 years
Pantomime at fitting in
Survive a crushing social masquerade
Loving dad
Humble servant
Indentured puppet
Just a man
Trying to impact others
Reflection can be brutal
Definitely offensive
Dependant upon
The band that plays the loudest
If competence means wealth
Political power
At others expense
I have no need for it
If success means opulence
Selfish indulgence
Sleepless nights
Count me out I say
It’s peace I crave
Silent satisfaction
Gooey chocolate chip tranquility
Fresh from life’s oven
Placid confidence
Eye to eye connection
With those who cross my path
My journey is predestined
Many snares along the way
Each glaring error
Stepping stone
To the sea of sweet acceptance
Living one day at a time
Comfortable in my own skin
I am but a peacemaker
Grateful child of God
Sensitive wordsmith
Sharing love
Longing to be loved in return
The high
The cost
My ego
The reward
Eternal redemption
The trip
An honor to share with you……
