I am here, I am now, I am this moment, Without rose tinted memories or ill recalled history, no future promises, or belief in acheivement of a lifetime's ambition, for dreams.. like dust.. are too swiftly blown away.. I am here, I am now and im complete in this moment.. which is y I may say to you now without prejudice..
I watch you arrive without consideration or invitation or forewarning. I watch you squander opportunity after opportunity that are offered to you.. so that you may learn.. may grow.. develop.. and live.. i watch in amazement as your fragile egos eek out a pitiful existence.. grasping greedily to build a shortlived kingdom of wealth until U ask " is there something more". Then U depart with the same lack of courtesy as U arrived.. not even offering a final goodbye from your lips. Just temporary people living temporary lives.
Yet amongst these wretched beings, I see hope. Those who not only busy themselves, but make time for others, and to help. They see the beauty in magic born in every sunrise and sunset. A wealth so great, not the richest man may possess. Still free each day for all they enjoy.... and they know... they are here... they are now... they are alive within each moment. By living they have life.. by having they understand.. by understanding they live. And because they live.. I say now without prejudice... I love life....................
Where no more weapons are fired any more. Imagine a world where people do what's right And the rule of law is stronger than the rule of might. Imagine a world where everyone has all they need. Where kindness and compassion are taught instead of greed. Imagine a better world...Imaginepeace on earth! Imagine a world where the global economy is based on what's best for all earth's communities. Where beauty and art and the media inspire The best in all, and lift our spirits higher. Imagine a world where science and technology Serve only to bring out the best in humanity. Imagine a better world...Imaginepeace on earth! Imagine a world where no child is left behind Where children everywhere are free to educate their minds. Imagine a world where tolerance and diversity Are the golden rule that guides humanity. Imagine a world where people don't neglect The beauty of the earth, and treat it with respect. Imagine a better world...Imaginepeace on earth! -- Robert Alan
Waves of Life
Newest Poem: written for Kansas Fricks 03/06/2011
Waves crash against my body
And still i stand
Digging my feet further into the sand
And against the pull of the tide
I can hear a melody, a sweet sound lifting high
Over the ocean, my next trial is nigh
The crash is close now
And i brace; neither fearing or loving
This wave's sweet embrace
The water covers me and I cannot breathe
But I know it's influence is only temporary
I emerge from the depths
And take my first breath
I can again hear the melody
Now a sweet SONG risen high
And it's in that moment i realize
These waves i ride
Are a thing called life
Through the turmoil of many strifes I have been beaten into the submission of forced ideologies. Past an inherent belief of right and wrong, I have suffered the deeds of the senseless and unkind. On the backs of giants I will watch this world crumble for the sins they praise and the greed they share. With the wisdom of an ageless existance I shall revel in the justice of tides, and for the balance of being it shall be so. In the presence of knowing I shall find comfort in it's contempt and prepare for deliverance, and when the sky darkens and the trumpets sound I shall for the first time know peace. It was always inevitable.... and it brings me great comfort to know these men are not in control, and never have been. THESE MEN OF ATROCITY. THESE DOGS OF WAR.
The planet shall betray them as they have betrayed her. She shall reclaim what is rightfully hers. For when one man prospers countless others must fail, and in accordance with the laws of the land, no one man can survive the mind wrecking condition of solitude. ~JW Garnett
