Complete

19 Oct

Complete

She sees him saunter by
She gives out a soft sigh
She wishes that he felt the same
About her, that an equal flame
That burned for her as she has for this guy

But he is just polite
Near her he feels no fright
He simply smiles and is quite nice
But he does not feel the same vice
That grips her when she is around this knight

He leaves and she’s left feeling
Incomplete and revealing
Like something’s missing in her life
She thinks if she becomes his wife
That she will undergo some soulful healing

And that is what is wrong
With all of those who long
And pine and crush and fantasize
For someone beautiful and wise
To “complete” them, they do not see how strong

And beautiful and wise
They are without allies
Complete already on their own
Complete with just their skin and bone
Complete without those relationship ties

A partner, spouse or mate
A bride, groom, or a date
May compliment and benefit
But one day we must all admit
To be complete on our own is our fate

People may come and go
Loved ones buried below
But no matter who may be around
“Completeness” will never be found
Because no other person can bestow

Completeness since it’s there
We’re complete if we dare
To not rely on others to
Make us feel complete, happy, new
There’s no need for dreaming, wishes and prayer

One day this girl admits
Accepts, concedes, permits
Herself to feel complete alone
Which changes her once needy tone
To confident, content and plenty wits

Her old crush does return
But old flame does not burn
She no longer needs him to be
The missing piece to set her free
For him no longer does she pine and yearn

He notices her now
Intense gaze on her brow
A confidence so few possess
He steps toward her to assess
And sees someone who has a complete glow

And it makes him feel small
He feels his courage stall
He sees how content this girl seems
And so the young man smiles and beams
And wants to know more ‘cause she does enthrall

He asks her for a date
“Pick you up at 8?”
She smiles and shakes her head at him
“I’ll be working out at the gym
Maybe some other time, for now you’ll wait”

He blinks and is confused
His massive ego bruised
Incomplete because she turned
Him down and his offer was spurned
He can’t recall when last he was refused

And he begins his own
Journey to what she’s known
That completeness does not depend
On family, stranger or friend
Just on the person there when you’re alone

Love Is…

3 Mar

Love Is…

Love is second nature
Love Is reflex, love’s innate
No struggle or effort needed
To care for your mate

Love obliterates ego
To point where there’s no “I”
Love for someone else bids that
Selfish ego goodbye

Love is instinct, built within
Our blood and DNA
Love does not need to “cool down”
True love has no delay

We see it in our animals
In how they care for young
Inherent duty to protect
The small lives which have sprung

We see it in the packs that travel
Together in wild
Loyalty for each other
Even the beasts reviled

But true love is so rare among
The human race it seems
A concept that only exists
Within most people’s dreams

Because the human mind is shackled
With such selfishness
Fear of hurt, embarrassment
Of having to confess

Their true love for another
Worry seeps in and corrupts
Choking the life out of love
As the ego erupts

Love is never angry and
Love is never hostile
‘Cause love is made of empathy
And ‘cause love walks a mile

In the loved one’s shoes and love
Lets go of own opinion
Love is not a slave to fear
And is not ego’s minion

Love is brave and bold and love
Makes no apologies
Love envigors, love strengthens
Love heals, love tames, love frees

From “me,” from “I,” from “myself” and
It opens selfish eyes
To smallness of the ego while
It makes the spirit rise

Screw Ups

8 Jul

Screw Ups

We’re told that should stand by those
Who are having it rough
But there’s a point where even Warriors
Say “That’s enough”

We show support and have hope much
Longer than most would last
But there’s a point where patience should
Be a thing of the past

And that’s with Screw Ups, people who
Aren’t trying very hard
People with ingratitude
Who simply disregard

The caring and concern that their
Friends and family show
Once again, the Warrior
Says what causes most woe

“What you’re doing hasn’t,
Doesn’t, and won’t work for me
I’m letting go ‘cause you’re a Screw Up
Of highest degree”

The Warrior lets go and stops
Letting Screw Ups frustrate
They don’t hold animosity
Or any kind of hate

They simply give up hope which is
An act most cannot do
We want to think that everyone
Could improve and come through

The Warrior’s a realist
And knows a truth that’s bleak:
Some people are permanently
Selfish, scared and weak

The Warrior has the courage
To let the Screw Ups go
They must fend for themselves if they
Do stand a chance to grow

And Warriors are weary when
A Screw Up says they’ve changed
They know that transformation won’t come
From being estranged

It comes from striving, pondering
From giving, sacrifice
It comes from letting go of self
Which is a heavy price

That most Screw Ups just cannot pay
Because “self” is their life
They place their own happiness before
That of a husband, wife

A son, a daughter or parent
A stranger or a friend
Quit on Screw Ups and your time
On better causes spend

Remain in Light

29 Dec

“Physical infidelity is the signal, the notice given, that all fidelities are undermined.” ~Katherine Anne Porter

 

Remain in Light

This message is for warriors
Who have a loved one who
Has done something so selfish that
It’s not just made them blue

This message is for warriors
Who feel they’ve been betrayed
By loved ones who could not resist
Their urges to get laid

They grew complacent, they got bored
They wanted something fresh
They squandered something deeper for
Relations of the flesh

They’ve left you angry, hurt, confused
And you feel your light fade
You feel there is a price for their
Selfishness to be paid

I’m here to tell you now the best
Advice you’ll ever get:
Remain in light, brave warrior
Don’t you dare get upset

They know that they have shown weakness
And their guilt haunts them now
They want you in their darkness too
So that you bend and bow

Hold your words of hatred and
Unclench your angry fist
Remain in light, do not hurt back
Revenge you must resist

Remain in light as you feel it
Does slip away from you
Remain in light and forgive how
They were weak and untrue

Be on guard, they’ll try to put
Some of the blame your way
Remain in light as you choose soft
And patient words to say

Let them writhe in turmoil as
They try to make some sense
Their ego tries to soothe their heart by
Going on defense

Remain in light and never say
Or do things you’ll regret
Remain in light and do not add
Yourself to their dark debt

Remain in light while you decide
Where you will go from there
‘Cause only in the light will you
Be able to repair

Or find the clarity to see
The new path you should take
Remain in light, brave warrior
For your own honor’s sake

Lost Love

27 Nov

Love Lost

Broken hearts are often told
“It’s better to have lost
A true love than to never have
Had it, despite the cost”

Many of us go into
Relationships on guard
Refusing to be vulnerable
Because we were left scarred

By the one who broke our heart
An unrequited love
Or someone who got bored of us
And quickly disposed of

Maybe they just “grew apart”
Or found somebody new
Or maybe it actually has
Little to do with you

Maybe it’s because they’re small
Or selfish or self-hating
Or are just happy to always
Be compulsively dating

Regardless of the scar that’s left
I know this much is true:
A warrior is not afraid
Of how things will ensue

If they open themselves up
To vulnerability
The lack of fear for themselves is
What sets their true love free

I can only tell you of
The few that I can claim
To have loved romantically
Without an ounce of shame

And when I opened myself up
And bared my heart and soul
The response has always been:
“You have made me feel whole

Complete, content, and satisfied
No longer wanting more
Also fearless and inspired
Because how you adore”

It’s true that not all loves will last
Some will just drift apart
While others will explode within
And tear up your poor heart

But when you think back and wonder
If it was a mistake
Please take solace in this knowledge
Though you may hurt and ache:

Despite the scars it may leave you
Don’t ever feel ashamed
Of being fearless and refusing
Your love to be tamed

Don’t you dare think twice that you
Should have been more subdued
There are enough in that group so
Yourself do not include

Think outside of yourself and
Instead think what you’ve given
Regardless of how many things
Are yet to be forgiven

Regardless of if the bridge is
Too burned to be repaired
Your duty on this Earth is to
Show that you always cared

It’s to show you always were
Fearless with all your love
The kind that’s only shown by the
Creator up above

No conditions to apply
And no rules to lay out
Just a pure and selfless love
That will leave little doubt

Yes, it’s better to have loved
And lost than not at all
As long as you just focus on
The courage, not the fall

The Right Place

3 Oct

The Right Place

“I just can’t seem to find someone
Who’s the right one for me”
Is what many single folks do
Solemnly decree

They talk about relationships
That ended up a waste
Never realizing it’s
Because they were not chased

Going to the bar does not
Count as making an effort
It’s just a place where people go
To drown sorrows and flirt

Superficial interactions
Lacking depth and soul
You’ll hardly ever meet someone
At one who’ll make you whole

“So if a bar’s not the right place
To find some soul and heart
Maybe a church is the best
Location to then start!”

If you think this to yourself
Be sure that you think twice
Just because someone believes
Does not mean they are nice

It’s been my experience
That churches, much like bars
Are just a place where people go
To try to forget scars

Despite their claims of following
Their Lord and Savior, Christ
I’ve met so many Christians
Whose temperaments were iced

They did not glow or radiate
With love and selflessness
They did not engage or welcome
Or any warmth express

“How ‘bout work? There’s a cute girl
Or guy I work beside
Surely they would make a perfect
Groom for me or bride”

Work’s another place that doesn’t
Usually pan out
Just one simple reason why
It’s not the ideal route:

Money is why so many
Couples who worked together
Were not able to endure
The harsh and nasty weather

Places where you make your dough
Are filled with people who
Are less concerned about others
Than making funds accrue

Same reason why many don’t
Have true friends at their trade
Most would throw you under bus
If it meant getting paid

“So not at bars or at a church
Or where you earn your pay
There’s got to be a place where folks
Can meet someone today!

How ‘bout school? There’s a guy or
Girl I’ve had my eye on”
Sorry, school’s the same as work
Your classmate will not fawn

Because, like work, they’re too busy
Accumulating grades
You’ll find about as much depth as
A quick game of charades

“So where’s a girl or guy supposed to
Find their one true love?”
I’ll tell you this, it likely won’t
Be one of the above

It probably won’t be wherever
You usually go
But something wonderful might happen
If you choose to grow

And venture out to new places
You haven’t ever been
Seeking something with more depth
Than just a lust for skin

I can only reassure
By telling you I’ve tried
All of the methods mentioned
And never found a bride

Until I left my comfort zone
And ventured somewhere new
That’s the only right place where
I found love that was true

Think about it, you won’t get
Your inspiration from
Negative and lazy people
Who are sour and glum

You won’t find hope among the folks
With whom you make your cash
Because the main thing on their minds
Is adding to their stash

And love is nowhere to be found
At places that serve booze
Bars are just places where folks
Go to drown all their blues

I cannot tell you exactly
Where “right place” may be
But it’s not part of your daily
Route, I’ll guarantee

If it’s love you’re looking for
The true and profound kind
The only way to find it is
If your legs are inclined

To move you out from your old path
And search new places where
Someone’s not just thinking of
Their own selfish affair

Their own pay or their drink or their
Own pass to pearly gates
Or their straight A’s, all of these things
Will lead to dead-end dates

Make an effort, seek and find
Get up and search for it
The right place is likely the  one
You currently omit

One of Grace

19 Jun

One of Grace

Seven years ago I put on a tux
And climbed in a limousine
I thought about how most guys would be nervous
But all I felt was so serene

No beads of sweat formed upon my forehead
And hands did not jitter and shake
My calmness was pure because in shortcuts
Like booze and drugs I don’t partake

The reason that I was not nervous that day
Was because that I already knew
For three years before I had put on that tux
That this day was one that I’d pursue

I knew when I saw her first walk through her door
And first saw those gorgeous green eyes
Done up chestnut hair and her gentle, soft smile
And so tall much to my surprise

“You’re gorgeous!” I blurted without even thinking
She smiled with genuine grace
The same way I think that I smiled at her
And I knew that I would not have to chase

Or convince or win over this beautiful girl
It truly was love at first sight
We just fit together like puzzle pieces
Nothing had felt quite this right

Her name was Luana, it meant “One of Grace”
And have that she did in all ways
Her movement, her voice, her patience and class
Never once ceased to amaze

I bought her red roses and a ring filled with diamonds
And bended down onto one knee
I asked her a question and she smiled with grace
And responded “I will” with much glee

As I walked in the church and greeted our guests
I still never felt any fear
“You’re so calm!” they said as the time counted down
The ceremony was now very near

I think it’s because I had already known
That I’d love her ‘till my dying day
I still felt no fear as she walked down the isle
Holding her lovely bouquet

“You’re gorgeous!” I thought once again in my head
As she gracefully glided toward
We placed rings on our fingers and declared our devotion
In front of our friends and the Lord

With her in my life, a lesson I’ve learned
Is that fear can be quelled with one trait
The jitters, the shakes will all vanish because
Of the resolve that grace does create

Seven years later I still feel serene
The same as I did in that church
I feel very blessed and fortunate that
For my grace I no longer must search

                                     For Luana
                                                                        on our 7 year wedding anniversary
