Time and Treason

DSCN4015

Look in the mirror to
see the terms of your journey.
Time and treason have tried to
lead you to other conclusions.
Negative thought is the
predatory of joyful memory.

Try to recognize yourself in the
form that you’ve become.
Sagging and wrinkles are the
result of hope, fear, laughter,
heartbreak and joy.
Embrace yourself, and never
let go.

Don’t let gravity anchor the
spirit of who you once were.
Dance to a new song that was
written for you today.

A life well lived is the gift that
you wear openly.  A face does
not lie to please the vain.
The scale can’t stop my fancy.
My reflection is a map showing
each stop along the way.

I am beautiful.

Structure

Follow in line or you’ll
hit your head.
The ideal formula is full
of bloody thorns and regret.
Even cats enjoy one life at
a time.  Take a deep breath,
learn your own lessons.

Discipline under-minds my
attitude.  Freedom is my
reward for failing and prying
open possibilities.
Why must I have structure?
My spirit is aloft with imperfect
behavior.

Authority can smell like a
rotting fish.  Hold your nose,
and see through it.  Feign
rapt attention.
Say your prayers, and memorize
the absurd.

Backseat arguments were not the desired convention.
Good children
stay in line with the help of sugar and spice.
Claustrophobic rides provoke tempers and screaming.
Wonderful memories of disorder.

Don’t make me turn this car around!

Turn your car around.
