Happy Trails to You

Happy Trails to You

                                                                   Primordial ~ Philip Brent Harris

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment


I look around and wonder what each of us sees.
Where I sit, it’s cliché, the forest from the trees.
I, like, listen to, like, voices impressed by, like;
never mind, think I will go out for a long hike.

Mistake politicians for leaders, know they lie.
Kill, discredit true leaders; do we wonder why?
Mourn all, not truly knowing what we’ve done
or how we have been held back or what’s gone.

Still, I have just heard a scientist who proposed
concrete research into parallel dimensions, plus
time seeds, ideas sent to the past, a compass rose,
eliminate traffic and pollution, to ride a solar bus.

I made up the last part, at least that’s what I think.
The thought about the solar bus, oh, not the other.
Yet maybe, I should pour myself a big, stiff drink;
every man’s a son and every woman is a daughter.

Born mewling, pooping, puking babes, who’ll die;
Grow to set out, seek adventure, fortune and fame.
except those meek, who simply follow, fear, cry,
persuaded they are better than others in the game.

All that has been born perishes on its chosen day:
cosmos, galaxies, stars, planets and all life entails.
We leave a brief history when we are gone away.
I’ve decided to grow up; I wish you happy trails.
