Average Rut

It makes me weak
Makes me drown
“Becoming normal”
Drowning in the mundane
Stuck in an average rut
Can’t find the exit sign
Show me the way out
Take me to the sweet bliss
Of a world laced with ecstasy
Days optimistic
Nights pessimistic
Back and forth
Up and down
Did I choose this ride?
Did I buy the ticket?
Can I ever get off?
Is this it?

Sunshine

He is
The human embodiment
Of joyous sunshine
Way up high
As if strung up
To the heavens themselves
He is
The bright side
That surmounts the darkness
Reflecting light and grace
Back to anyone
Who gazes upon him

Everlasting Journey

Cotton candy skies
The sun sets
Nostalgia seeps in
Longing for simpler times:
The sun didn’t ask as many questions
The moon didn’t expect as many answers
Now the questions are tireless
My answers are dwindling
Falling ever behind in this cycle
Needing a reminder
Dawn is dawn and dusk is dusk
Neither can be a beginning or an end
Let go of your daily attachments
This is an everlasting journey

Yin Yang

Piece into me
Balance my opposites
Fill my darkness
With your light
Let it seep into my soul
Overwhelm my senses with desire
Appease my mind with wholeness
With you I am whole
You have found every
Empty crevice of my being
Lay bare the seeds
And through the fruits of your labor
Have grown a genus of wildflower
Known not by the world
But only by us

Jojo

Look Forward

Don’t fret, starseed
It isn’t always easy
Some days fall short
The limitations are tireless
You lay to bed weak
And rise feeling weaker
Your time will come
Your strength will rise
Everything cycles
You are a caterpillar
On a journey just begun
You are cocooning
And although
It may be draining
Having no idea
What’s to come
Make use of this time
Fill your heart with beauty
Once you emerge
It will be a new era
Of prosperity and manifestation
Of your hopes and dreams
As the beautiful butterfly you are

Jojo
