what’s in your center?
an enlightening epiphany
discovering your inner core?
a place to safely explore?
the soul is your center
to your spirit
that follows a pathway
up a celestial stairway
but I wouldn’t know
I have a wayward soul
that wanders alone
seeking the center
of the universe
and it’s secrets
I still wonder why
I can never go home
no matter how hard I try
I was always aware of someone watching me in the family
and it was oddly comforting but sometimes scary
like having The Eye of Horus or The Eye of Ra on me
no matter what I did or how dangerous the activity
That watchful eye followed me over the years
and helped me deal with my fears
sometimes, I look up at the sky
after all these years have gone by
and wonder why
I still believe in a watchful eye?

it’s been plain to see
from sea-to-shining sea
America has become an idiocracy
instead of a democracy
oh say, can you see…
the dumbing down of our society?
our president’s notoriety?
the partisan impropriety?
someday historians will agree
this was a dark time in our history
our saving grace, we love to be free
we believe in social equality
and in the Constitution’s guarantee
the very foundation of this country
50 words –
Between wakefulness and awareness the cocoon shifts in expectation
It’s growing body struggling to emerge full blown, ready to greet the earth and sky
It does not pause to look back at it’s origin or try to look into the future
The butterfly’s epiphany is living in the moment
