Words are more than their letters and how they are arranged

Uttered from unstable minds, they become totally deranged


They can cause some introspection, or make you feel you’re cursed

They can incite the best in all of us and antagonise the worst


They can be sung in celebration, or screamed out in despair

Create an honest form of clarity, or be a burden you must bear


Books upon books are written, pages littered with prose

Recording and then sharing, human victories and woes


Objects upon billboards, demanding to be bought

Never ending promotions; a false happiness being sought


Honest misdirection, in bigger and bolder fonts

Misery perpetrated, by empty, unfulfilled wants


Whispers becoming louder, truths coming into view

Old words rediscovered, a true purpose heard anew

The path to authenticity

Integrity; the intention

Of becoming and being whole

Through awakening the mind

Body, heart and soul


The path to authenticity

To a life of just being

Is through acceptance, enjoyment

And the excitement of doing


Trust; accountability

That can only start with you

If you can’t walk the walk

Then you can’t expect others to


Centring and grounding

A knowing, not a thought

Let go of old beliefs

The wrong lessons taught


Forgiveness, the answer

To the question of blame

Projection the constant replay

Of societies make-believe game
