Here I am Again

Here I am Again

Here I am again: Jumping to Conclusions.
Still caught up in my latest Delusions.
So Unsure of my Foundation.
Living a Life of Consternation.

Living simply is too hard as a Fool:
When constant doubt is the absolute Rule.
When I Pray to You, I hear Your Voice.
To Live and Die the Same is my Choice.

Today just Take my Will and Life.
Remove me from this Strife.
Guide me in my Recovery
Work for a New Discovery.

Turn it all over to the Mother of us All.
And show me How to Live.

Final Ode to Mom and Dad

Mom and Dad: An Ode

My Dad always told me to go with the flow:
A Soul breaking Free from the sludge.
My Mom taught me not to judge:
To Love my neighbor as my foe.

I owe my folks for how I was raised.
Discipline was not withheld.
Loved when I finally fell.
To their God I must Praise.

Schoolin’ was my favorite part of life –
Readin’, writin’ and ‘rithmatic.
Knowledge was a Free Gift —
Growing and Living free of strife.

Someday I’ll have my own kids.
Raise them just like I was.
Passing along the Way it was done.
Follow the Path is what we’ll do.

No matter what we did.
