Angst Over You

Why angst over you?

All you say and think and do?

What gains have you from tearing

Into your own living, sharing?

Why not accept, embrace the strange

Instead of forcing Self to change?

If you are harming not a soul,

And have yourself under control,

Keep and treasure what defines,

Surrendering all that confines.

No Guarantees

There never was a guarantee

That life would go on easily.

God does not exist for you,

To make all of your dreams come true.

Stop useless screaming at the sky

As if it owes you a reply.

We are all upon this earth,

Fighting to find our sacred worth.

We all will know of tears and pain,

Just as we’ll know of joy and gain.

You are not owed a lighter path,

So save your shallow, selfish wrath.

Accept the tide of life that flows,

Embrace your path where’er it goes.

Love is Love

How can love be wrong or bad?

I find even the notion sad.

The parental brutality

In damning sexuality

Is altogether sick to me.

That’s not how you treat family.

Love does no wrong to other people

Love is not owned by state or steeple

If no harm is being done,

And if a person’s found “the one,”

Do we have to go erupt

Just ’cause their parts don’t quite “match up?”

Do you think that sex should be

Seen as it was First Century,

Even though it’s likely true

You think this way ’cause it ain’t you?

Until all love is celebrated,

The healing much anticipated

Will keep on stalling at the door

‘Til we’re not judging anymore.
