Turn Back

Once upon a time I was unique… I spoke words true and laughed in the face of doubt… I was strong.

Once upon a time I was whole… I felt with my soul and spoke with my mind… Now my soul cries and my tears die… I was wrong.

Once upon a time I made a choice… I turned away and let them stray… they were my words… they were my songs… now I find I am all alone…

Once upon a time I said these words. It was the beginning of the end and now that end is gone. It disappeared and I fear my actions are unjustified… they can not change time… no matter how hard I try… I’m sorry doesn’t suffice

Words we never said...

A rear-view mirror – shimmering discontent
in heated waves still rising from the road
where all our best intentions lay as spent
and cheap as every smile we’ve ever sold…

You want to claim the truth? Take back one lie.
You know what one is yours, consider this –
before you count on nothing maybe try
to get it right when next you reminisce
about a friend who never welcomed you
or one you’d make believe was never true
or one who’s love you’ve chosen to dismiss.

As always, it’s the same five miles of old
dust and dirt we kick up when we meet
– the reasons why just drift around our feet.

Our quest of hundreds and thousands of years. It seems like it will never end, although we are closer with every new step we take. But where do our steps take us? Towards the darkness we came from, or towards the light, or towards the grey mists we will never be able to navigate through? Each question only begs us to go forward, to see and feel, to touch and smell, to hear the pulsing beat of the heart of the universe. And what awaits there, at the far edge of the world? Will we reach it before we fall? Will it be…

“The truth may hurt for a little while but a lie hurts forever.” Author Unknown


“You can never find yourself unless you face the truth.”  Pearl Bailey


For whatever reasons we justify our actions…whether we are afraid to be rejected or ridiculed….whether we dont want to hurt or worry another….whether we just wish to hide or conceal…there is no excuse to not be truthful and honest…


Just saying….
