106. The future is here

When does the future occur, 
Tell me when?

When does this present moment
Come to its end? 

When does time
Stop and stand? 

When will we walk
Hand in hand?

104. Life is short

Life is short. 

How often do we hear this?
Sometimes death etches a scar so terribly deep that no amount of rain can wash it away. 

Life is short. 

Love, just love. 
Love others. 
Love yourself. 
We come into this world alone and we leave it alone, but we are not alone while we are alive. 

Please be kind to one another and to yourself. 

Remember, life is short.

95. Speak

Do what you should,
Not what you can.

Don’t break lives.
Heal with your hands.
Speak up till you’re sore,
Defend every child, woman and man.

Do what you should,
And not what you can. 

(Dedicated with love to my friend, Sharon Anderson – for courage, compassion and doing the right thing.)

93. Take courage 


Know who you lend your voice to,
For you only make theirs louder;
Know who you shut your heart to,
For you only make life bleaker. 

Be not the yes-man,
The one with neither guts nor clear sight;
Please, if you see someone wronged,
Speak up and make things right. 

These waters are no longer still
For the first rock has been thrown,
The ripples are moving far 
Beyond where the winds have blown. 

Don’t you have a conscience?
Haven’t you felt such pain?
Look at what you stand for,
What do you hope to gain?

Know who you lend your voice to,
For you only make theirs louder;
Know who you shut your door to,
For you only make others suffer.

92. The president’s wish

I wish they were all dead,
In dirt stacked right up to their heads.
Their cringing cries for pity 
Would not fill me then with dread.

91. Another human being 

How do you understand me?
With what eyes do you see my face?
I am just another human being in this world, 
just like you.

How do you choose to look at my actions and decide what you want to think of me?

Do you see me in the problems of your past?
Does my presence today haunt you still?

I am just another person. 

I do not know the way to tear the sorrow from your heart. 
I do not have the answers you seek. 
I do not think you are broken beyond repair. 

Let’s take some time to know ourselves and each other,
today and tomorrow. 
Imagine what a different world we could wake up to,
where assumptions no longer rule our hearts.
