PASSING BY



We breathe less time in our lungs than a clock made of air,
yet Creation grants us enough to knock us over in our briefness, plenty more than we are capable of tolerating.
We can't stand like the forest, or the mountains, we topple in our brevity, trembling as we fall.

Our legs are not trunks, feet not roots, our bravery overshadowed by our frame's willfully quivering bark, less heartbeats than the moth's wings flutter toward the light, time our contrivance, age flouting the curves of our backs to rage at the dying of our own glimmer.

Our lives begin like comets bending their growling radiance toward Home then crash into one another as if destined to skip the celebration entirely.

We cry more than we laugh until our frames are deformed by the tears running ahead of our joy like an impatient brute briefly crashing into itself without familiarity.

However, when we pass by, we leave a sheen where we briefly were, and there's hope in that...

How many more are to be lifted before We rise up? (We need rise up just to get a headcount of those murdered.) It would be far too painful, sorrow comes from the actions of the murderer, the victims draw upon our grief...

THE RISING OF FREEDOM

The rising began and begins from deep within our being, then it brings the collective to an agreement; freedom is free. We are to follow its example and free ourselves from being a slave to “things”. To truly be free, We must agree that freedom is truly for the whole of humankind, for if one is enslaved, so shall We all be…

Bangladesh Attack Suggests Shift by ISIS as It Loses Territory

The shift is most felt after there are no other alternatives but to believe in something beyond doubt that you cannot possibly know in the unfolding of truth. Truth's unknown until it unfolds.

Don't detonate rage,
set off Love,
assemble Peace,
let War fall away,
erase it of its monstrous use.

The news is delightful coming out about the myriad of benefits that cannabis offers to humankind and to the (H)eartH.

This news is not for those who have had a heavy hand in keeping the medicine away from its rightful heirs, humankind. Those guilty of deception probably find this news more alarming than joyful.
