WINDS OF CHANGE



I know you want to travel
farther than they did.
Above the mountains
the clouds,
the horizon.

Take an experienced travellers advice -
Always listen to the wind,
cause it's moving
 in the right direction
for you.

Never fight the wind,
Cause its blow-
can break you
faster than it breaks
 the deepest rooted trees.

Let the wind guide you
and push you forward
always forward
To where you need to go.

But if the wind ever changes course
and seems to be going against you
Don't fight it.
Be patient
 Stop , rest  and wait
Hopefully It'll go back
 to where
you thought
you want to go.

But if  you realize
The wind's directions
changed for good-
 Be brave
Close your egos mouth.
Open your eyes.
Look where all the leaves are flying
And make the hard decision
to change route.
Maybe it's a call to reflect
examine, evolve, wake up.
Listen to the winds of change.
Cause it is the voice of time itself.
It's the real guide to your destiny.

Cheer up


Cheer up.
You are alive.
You are not totally alone.
You are still with us,
still able to wake up another morning
and fight.

Cheer up.
There's a lot of love in the world.
Even if
the one you just lost
You feel you lost forever.
There's never just one love for anyone.
Even if in the heat of the moment
It feels like games over.

Cheer up.
You'll find the path that's right for you-
Even if
you've been walking in the wrong circles
That have taken you nowhere
But to your own despair
what feels like forever.

Cheer up.
You're alive.
You are able to move.
to dream.
to find new friends.
to reach out to old friends.

Cheer up.
There's so much to live for.
Just open your eyes.
More importantly
Get up and
go back into the ring
starting now!

No one knows anything


No one knows anything.
No one.

No one really knows
Who loves who
How much
And when that love will end
or if maybe
 it already ended long ago-

No one knows who is-
Behind closed doors -
Actually -
 abusive
 a lunatic
 a hater
on the verge of unraveling
or evolving
Becoming a sun
or a black hole.

No one knows what's behind
Anyone's smile
 tears
or anger
And what is
Really going on
Inside the earthquake
of one's soul
Cause no one.
No one
knows anything.
Not even you.

No one knows
who is attracted to whom.
Who is attracted
 to men
or women.
Who is attracted
 to other things
like
 power,
drugs
beauty,
abuse,
money
just to name a few.
No one knows anything.
Not even you.

No one knows
and those
that spread rumors
 like they know.
are usually
 the ones
that really don't know.
Cause no one
no one
 knows anything.
Not even you.

DID YOU SEE?


Did you see
how silent they all were
when it all happened,
Did you see how silence
is powerful
And evil-
Did you,
Did you see?

Did you see
How they had no shame
in their own cowardice?
 How they all knew what the right thing
to do was -
but instead chose
To pretend they didn't see?
Did you,
Did you see?

Did you see
How quickly
They went on with their -
daily lives
Forgetting
So fast,
Things no one
should ever forget-
Did you,
Did you see?

I hope
unlike them
you chose to see-
Cause you are my witness
That it really happened.
You must tell everyone
what you saw
To remind them -
That they did
They did see it too!

Kindness

   
Why are we so
afraid of kindness,
you ask me?
As kids
we are shown the full extent of
kindness -
and feel it's intensity and healing magic
and then Poof-
we grow up.
Our  bubble of
love, chocolate and kindness
Blows up and disappers!
We wake up
to a cruel, swamp of
blood suckers and pain.
We become
Jaded and cynical
feeling at war with
everyone and everything
and sadly like many soldiers
in the war for existence
in an unkind hating world -
we stop being kind too.

Think
how beautiful
our world could be
If we all made peace
with one another.
If we could all share
the gift of compassion
with everyone around us.
So why are we so afraid of kindness?
Cause deep down
We are all little kids
Who crave it so much!

Time doesn't wait for anyone


Time doesn't wait for anyone
Not even for you and me.
Time doesn't wait for anyone,
That's just how it'll always be.

Maybe in your mind you
can slow down
time just for  us
But in the real world -
Time waits for no one.
Not for you or for me.

Time  moves so fast
That if we don't hold on
to  each other
We'll just be left behind.

Time doesn't wait for anyone.
Love it. Hate it.
Time doesn't care.
It's moving forward.
Always forward.
with us or without us-
So hold on to me.

Time doesn't wait for anyone
And doesn't care about the past.
At all.
Unlike us.
Who always cares and remember
And always look more backwards
Than forwards.
So if you don't want to be left behind
We got to move on with the times.
I don't want to go
To the unknown future alone -
So please
Hold on to me.

You Will Become


Do you want to know Who you will become?
You will become the person 
you hated most as a young person.
Face it.
Accept it.
Admit it.
Learn.

If you hated greedy pigs.
One day you too will end up
living in your own mud  pond
blinded 
by your own desire for more

If you hated cry babies 
you will end up whining 
more than anyone you ever met.
If you hated abusers
Good chance 
you too will become an abuser.

If you hated your mother or father 
you will become them.

If you hated traitors
You will end up 
committing treason.
If you hated law and order
And thought 
you were the most rebellious -
You will end up 
working for the law.
dedicating your life 
to crushing rebellious souls
Like you so loved to be.

If you hated 
people who don't fight enough 
to keep their marriage alive
You will end up divorced.
Or just a regular betrayer
of the marriage oath.

If you hated with a vengeance 
a certain 
religion or race or skin color -
You will probably marry them
Or at least sleep with them-
Hating your own hypocritical soul
and uncontrollable attractions
to that which you hated in vain.

If you hated fat people
You will end up fat.
If you hated people 
who aren't straight
You too will end up 
much less straight than a ruler.

Listen,
The most important thing is
Don't hate yourself.
It's not your fault 
you turned into 
that which you have always despised.
That's just how all humans roll.
We dread what we will become
so we start hating it early on
Hoping our feelings 
will change our destiny
Which we know we can't change.

Never let anyone step on you!






Never let anyone disrespect you.
EVER!
Never stay quiet when anyone
Even playfully
Hints you are not smart
Or inexperienced
Or that  luck brought you here
 rather than your hard work and qualifications.

Never let anyone step on you!
Never let anyone plant doubts in your mind.
About yourself or your family.
It's just a more subtle way to destroy you.

Always remember
You are indeed magnificent.
You deserve to be here.
But only on one condition.
That you will never let anyone step on you
And that you promise to always fight
For your right to be here.
Always.
Cause everyone wants to be here
And those that don't fight
Eventually get pushed out.

Welcome to your new home
Among those that know what they are truly worth.
You are everyone's equal here.
You are among those who will never be stepped on 
ever again!
