Dancing Through Where The Flowers Grow

Dancing through where the flowers grow
Exiting through the darkness to escape
Kissing secrets no one can ever know
Headphones on, listening to vibes on tape

Do You Find It Difficult To Be Beautiful

girls-1209321.jpg

Do you find it difficult to be beautiful
Are you hassled or looked down upon
Jealousy is a cruel infection to cure
Cast out as it’s own phenomenon
I’m no one of any consequence
Merely a gentleman admirer from afar
I hold no secrets or vials of love potion
I just know a person needs to be needed for who they are

Obvious Beauty

Obvious beauty
Being detailed
In current
Fashion Magazines
Her
Physical presence
Whittled down 
there is no
Cover-up
For a
Broken heart 
no band-aid
For the soul 
airbrushes
Remove
All her
Earthly flaws 
which the
Striving perfection
Cannot 
stirring to
Find a voice all her own 
the world
Making grand decisions
On her behalf 
sliding her
Into their
Preconceived levels 
the judgments
Will not
Allow a
Real person
To grow 
this world
Will not
Allow her
To exist 
this society
Condemns her
For her beauty 
a physical trait
She cannot
Control 
a characteristic
Which should be
Appreciated 
ends up making her
Feel stupid
& Worthless 
never in her life,
Did anyone see her soul
they only saw the beauty
& hated her
For it

Revealing Our Secrets

dance-719781.jpg

Revealing our secrets
Like what’s between the cushions
The skeletons come dancin’
Down in the groove: straight ambushin’
Shaking’ their bones in colorful Chucks
With nothin’ to hide in the light of the moon
Stripped of clothing & pretense; we’re all exposed
Together truthfully, finally singin’ the same sweet tune

They See Everything

They see everything
Their perceptive little minds
Soaking up the universe
Chewing life down to the rind
Laughing with unfettered glee
Constant revolutions of the brain
Don’t ruin their perfection
The purity before any of the pain

“Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn’t blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won’t cheat, then you know he never will. Integrity is not a search for the rewards of integrity. Maybe all you ever get for it is the largest kick in the ass the world can provide. It is not supposed to be a productive asset.”
― John D. MacDonald
