A Single Tear

A Single Tear ~~~~~ What net of illusions do I hope to cast? Magician’s misdirection my future, past. Always on the verge of fathoming truth, feeling all makes sense, a folly of youth. How then could I have thought, known? Imagine imagination’s leap, now grown. many ways, not only down or sideways, wander, stars transfixed, […]

What I Said

What I Said ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Mired in my mind maze, lonely and lost, as I wander around inside my own head.

~~~~~ What we know and what we think we know, live in constant conflict, a dubious do-si-do. What we believe, will never have to grieve. What we conceive denies what we perceive. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let me know what […]
