#280 – MEMORY


THE MIND IS LIKE A VESSEL
LOCATED IN OUR SKULL

HOLDS THE HISTORY
OF THE  JOURNEY

THAT WE HAVE MADE
ESCAPADE OR CRUSADE

AS WE REACH BACK
TO UNPACK

THE MEMORIES OF IT ALL
SUCH A HAUL

WALKING THROUGH
TO REVIEW

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE SAD
SOME OF WHICH MADE US GLAD

IT IS OUR OWN PERSONAL PARADISE
SLICE BY SLICE

NOTHING CAN BE  CHANGED
OR REARRANGED

FATE IS NOT IN CHARGE ANYMORE
NOT LIKE BEFORE

THIS SHIP HAS ALREADY SAILED
NO LONGER CAN BE DERAILED

WE MUST LIVE WITH OUR PAST
FOR THE DYE HAS BEEN CAST

IT WILL BE A GOOD EXPERIENCE FOR SOME
TO BEAT UPON THE OLD DRUM

FOR OTHERS
FAILURES

ALONG THE WAY
OF THEIR HEYDAY

FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
AVOID STRIFE

BE CAREFUL
NOT TO FUMBLE

WHILE FATE CONTINUES TO DRIVE
YOU MAY WANT TO CREATE A BETTER ARCHIVE

#279 – COMBINATIONS

LOVE A FEELING THAT I NEED
A SEED

THAT GROWS DAILY
ABUNDANTLY

WITHIN
MY SKIN

LET IT OUT
WALKING ROUND ABOUT

PROTECT IT I MUST
I CANNOT TRUST

THAT IT WILL BE OKAY
FROM DAY TO DAY

IF I DON’T WATCH  IT
AND KEEP IT FIT

IT BECOMES LIKE A COUGH
BLASTOFF

WHENEVER
WITHOUT ITS OWN POWER

NO HIDING PLACE
THE BODY CANNOT KEEP IT IN A SUITCASE

WHEN IT IS READY THE TRIGGER
AIMS FROM THE BODY’S INTERIOR

IS THAT WHAT LOVE DOES AS WELL
IS IT A REBEL

OR ARE LOVE AND A COUGH UNABLE TO HIDE
COMPLETELY  DENIED

ONE A FEELING THE OTHER A REFLEX
NEITHER SEEMS TO HAVE ANY CHECKS

TO WHAT THEY DO AND WHEN OR WHERE
IT DOES NOT SEEM FAIR

IN A SENSE THEY ARE TWO PEAS IN A POD
BOTH CONTROLLED BY GOD

#278 – DARE

DARE I BE WHAT I THINK
AND NOT SHRINK

FROM THE TASKS ASSOCIATED
ALLOCATED

TO FOOTPRINTS
THAT WILL NOT RINSE

WHEN WET
MET

BY THE SLINGS AND ARROWS
LEAVING ZEROES

SURROUNDING ONE’S EXISTENCE
GIVING DEPENDENCE

TO OTHERS
AMBASSADORS

OF THEIR OWN AGENDAS
ACKNOWLEDGES

WHAT THEY WANT
TO TAUNT

AND GET YOU AWAY
FROM WHAT YOU WANT TO CONVEY

GET UP AND STOMP ON THEM
DON’T LET THEM CONDEMN

WHO YOU WILL BE
BY BEING AN ABSENTEE

GLORY OR ESSENCE
DOES NOT COME FROM  COMPLIANCE

BEING IN THE GAME
YOUR NAME

UP FRONT
AS A COVENANT

WITH YOUR BODY AND SOUL
LET THAT BE YOUR GOAL

#277 – ANTICIPATION

THE MIND TRIES TO KEEP AHEAD
FED

BY WHAT WE THINK WILL HAPPEN
AS AN ACCOMMODATION

TO THE NEED TO BE RIGHT
A FORM OF MIGHT

TO BE ON TOP
AT EVERY STOP

KNOWING IN ADVANCE
DON’T HAVE TO TAKE A GLANCE

WE KNOW BECAUSE WE DO
NEED NO BREAKTHROUGH

WE HAVE IT LIKE THAT
NOT A FORMAT

POWER TO THE MIND
DESIGNED

TO ANTICIPATE
BEFORE THE ARRIVAL DATE

INSTEAD
WHAT MIGHT BE IN THE HEAD

DOES NOT HAPPEN AS THOUGHT
BUT IS AS A JUGGERNAUT

WITH WHAT REALLY OCCURS
IN LIFE’S ENCOUNTERS

AND IN FACT
BY ITS OWN ACT

IS LEAST EXPECTED
WHEN IT INTERRUPTED

WHAT WAS TO BE
ABSOLUTELY

#276 – LOVE

LOVE IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BEING
MANIPULATING

ALL ACHIEVEMENT
THROUGH CHILDHOOD AND ADOLESCENT

DEVELOPMENTAL PERIODS AND THEREON
UPON

REPRESENTS THE UNDERPINNINGS
OF ALL OF OUR UNDERTAKINGS

FROM BIRTH TO DEATH
WITH EVERY BREATH

THAT WE TAKE
MAKE NO MISTAKE

WITHOUT IT
NOTHING TO KNIT

THE GOOD AND BAD
WHEN WE ARE HAPPY AND SAD

ALLOWING FOR TOLERANCE OF BOTH
PERMITTING GROWTH

WHEN USING FREE WILL
TO FULFILL

CHOICES MADE
PARLAYED

INTO GOALS
DIFFERENT ROLES

PLAYED IN LIFE
TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM STRIFE

LOVE AND BE LOVED BY OTHERS
BUFFERS

THE LONELINESS
WHEN THE TIME OF OUR EXODUS

IS NEAR
LOVE GIVES US THE FINAL CHEER

#275 – NETWORKING

IS THIS NOT WHAT NETWORKING IS ALL ABOUT
BEING ABLE TO SHOUT

OUT TO THE MASSES
CLOSE AND NOT SO CLOSE ACQUAINTANCES

TO GET THIS AND THAT
TIT FOR TAT

BRINGS MANY TOGETHER
WHENEVER

ONE NEEDS SOMETHING FROM THE OTHER
NO DEEPER

THAN THAT
JUST A LITTLE CHAT

TO ACHIEVE ONE’S MOMENTARY GOAL
ANYBODY OR EVERYBODY CAN PLAY THAT ROLE

SO IS IT BETTER TO KNOW EVERYTHING
YOURSELF THEN WORKING

OUTSIDE OF YOUR BOX
AND LEARN MORE FROM TALKS

WITH OTHERS APART OF “EVERYBODY”
USEFULLY

AVAILABLE IN EXCHANGE FOR
BUILDING THEIR OWN RESERVOIR

TO USE LATER
WHEN THEY NEED A BROKER

#274 – RELATIONSHIPS


BORN ALONE
NOTHING JOINED AT THE HIPBONE

FROM THAT TIME FORWARD
LIFE IS EMBROIDERED

STITCH BY STITCH
WHICH

MAKES US WHO WE BECOME
PART OF A QUORUM

MAYBE OF FOUR
OR APART OF A CORE

GROUPS SURROUNDED BY CIRCUMSTANCES
ACCOMPLICES

BY CHANCE
ENTRANCE

TO A RELATIONSHIP
FORMED ON A TRIP

AT SCHOOL
OR WHILE SITTING ON A BAR STOOL

LOOKING FOR THE BEST
CONQUEST

FOR THE END GAME
EXCHANGING A NAME

FROM YOURS TO THEIRS
GIVING UP AFFAIRS

SETTLING FOR NOTHING LESS
THAN SUCCESS

IF  OUR CHOICE
IS GIVEN NO VOICE

AND WE CONTINUE TO LOOK
FOR A DIFFERENT BOOK

THEN WHAT OF THE PAST
THAT DID NOT LAST

IS NOT OUR LIVES PIECES
A COLLECTION OF FACES

THAT MAKE US WHO WE ARE
ABOVE AND BELOW THE RADAR

USE EVERY EXPERIENCE
AS A REMEMBERANCE

FOR WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE
IT WAS REAL NOT FICTION

# 273 – FRIENDS

NO CHOICE IN THE MATTER
LIKE INK ALREADY ON THE BLOTTER

FATE LEAVES US COMPLETED
MAYBE EVEN DEFEATED

BEFORE WE ARE EVEN BORN
LIKE A LITTLE ACORN

LYING IN THE WOODS
COVERED BY HOODS

OF TREE BRANCHES
PROTECTRESSESS

THEY ARE
OUR RESERVOIR

UNTIL WE GROW INTO OUR OWN
BONE CONNECTED TO BONE

SINGING WHAT WE WISH
TO ACCOMPLISH

MUCH DETERMINED BY FATE
THE MAGISTRATE

IN CHARGE OF WHAT
WILL BE IN OUR BASKET

BUT FRIENDS
DEPENDS

ON SELECTION
AND ASSOCIATION

FREE WILL AGAIN
ALLOWS ONE TO PEN

THE “WHAT SHALL I DO?”
AND WITH WHO

BUT, REMEMBER, CHOICES LEAVE NOTHING TO LOSE
BUT VALUES
