change

inevitable
relentless
remorseless

enabler of decay
bringer of pain
of death

end of all

facilitator of growth
bringer of joy
of life

start of all

without which
we cannot be

without which
we cannot love

change

The Storm

In life, poem, poetry on November 15, 2011 at 3:41 pm

The sharp flash of lightning stabs out from the clouds.
Thunder rattles the windows.
Rain pours down upon the thirsty ground.
In the midst of the storm, calmness comes upon me.
Amid the tumult, peace reigns.

Remember

In civilization, humanity on November 14, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Moving towards clarity, embracing differences, we move towards becoming truly human.

Yet, focusing on differences, creating issues where there are none, we fail ourselves.

We stumble towards true civilization, neither progressing nor regressing.

Clothed in the thin veneer of modernity, we are fooled by appearances.

In front of the mirror we preen and congratulate ourselves.

We turn away and forget who we are.

We forget what we can become…

truly human.
