All Else Fails

That’s when the cup,

we often debate about it,

poured in, spilled out.

When all else …

we come to realize –

oh wait,

I do.

I am the one,

the individual, that person, this living being,

the one to make the change.

When all else –

becomes a reality,

then it is then,

when I have to go forward,

saying only these things,

speaking just the words that fit,

understanding,

acknowledging there is this inherent

need to succeed.

Such a powerful phenomena,

far better than the ruse,

of living in failure.

I believe, do you?

What about today?

Let’s think about the next time,

we wonder about the finish line,

it never really ends though,

we just continue,

fighting the good and common

role, roll with it, mastery,

is knowing failure is never defined,

nor be it accolades for accomplishment,

because when the sun rises in the morning,

there is far more ahead.

Conscious Choice

Human interaction demands a time

to recognize our soul is driven by

a passion we sometime do find sublime.

Our ability to withstand a cry

will certainly indicate our penchant

toward running the show, calling the shots.

Much like quiet the observant merchant

who sees and values what customer spots,

the human condition holds needs velvet.

A touch, a tease, a trace of fingertips

will suggest a love beyond mind’s kismet.

Our need to hold and feel so often flips;

dials choice’s mystique in good conscience

when then a conscious choice be left to chance.

Moral Fiber

I was very young

when they introduced me to

reality

That they might believe a word

could erase my innocence

that they

is a descriptive word at all is disturbing

A generalization

A way to not take

Responsibility

That moral fiber

might be discussed,

is a question we tend to avoid

when the going gets …

awkward silence
