Am I just that strange
For wanting so much change?
How can we stop looking for
A way to love each other more?
How can we just leave behind
Our kindred; put them out of mind?
Why must we so quickly fight
The truth and keep it out of sight?
How desperately do we all need
To shed the coverings of greed;
To silence all the strength of fear;
To seek the truth, invite it near!
For only when we open up
Can we rise up and then disrupt
The systems weighing people down,
Depriving royals of their crown.

Worn down to the bone.
Sometimes there’s no more to give.
That’s perfectly fine.

Every journey hits a kink
That makes us have to stop and think.
While it may deal a heavy blow,
Imagine if this wasn’t so.
Every path should force a pause;
Consideration of our cause.
What if this isn’t my true way?
What if my goal’s a mere delay?
What if there may be more for me
That this detour can help me see?
What are my true motivations?
Have they skewed my navigations?
Without questions, I do fear
Too many folks would simply veer
In whatever manner came to mind,
Only to disaster find.
So give some thanks for subtle blocks
That make us pause and then take stock.
It might just be the planted seed
That bears exactly what you need.
Love without restraint.
As the birds can’t help but sing,
So we’re made to love.
