Words

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
