Uncertain Times

Times are uncertain

Perhaps always were.

Now precarious truth

Is underscored.

*

Will we blindly

Keep to what was?

Deluded, sedated

Ignore what is?

*

Or embrace reality

With its mountains and pits.

Find our nobility

Drop our base fears.

*

Let go of our hindrances

Truly co-exist

Courageously, kindly

Be what we are.

I do believe that it is in shedding what does not serve us and others; that we come closer to who we actually are – perhaps more so, than when we gain.

Rights & Responsibilities

I have the right,

To breath & smile.

To live my life,

With no denials.

I am responsible,

For how I act.

Try to be kind;

Aware of impact.

I have the right,

To fill my days.

With what I choose;

With a new craze.

But in pursuit,

Of my future.

I must take care,

Of your nurture.

This balance I,

Must pursue, to

Reap all my rights,

And not hurt you…
