A place where our leaders are elected but in actuality they are really selected 
where the government by the people is not with and for the people 
That's how democratic we...Read More

Does anyone care
Does anyone care about souls choked by the hands of poverty,
future shattered against the stones of repression, 
as we are awaken to the alarms of war guns
A daily rhythm of fear to which we dance in tears ?
Does anyone care?

The Dust Rises - LM

In illuding dunes 
chasing the mirage
the state of actuality infringed
by surrealistic  perception.

The lattice of dream
crumbles on scorched sands
of ember time  
hope squelched
by whirlwind of verity.

At the edge of darkness
dawning fortitude
beckons the zephyr
embalmed with philtre of oasis.

From the ruins...Read More

Faith is conceptual belief
and like heaven itself 
it needs no proof
as it transcends time, place,
history, culture and space.
Yet, as faithful as we may be,
we are not of heaven
but are beings of the earth—
Unable to divorce ourselves
from the experiences of time,...Read More

Where Shall I Go
The moons and the tides
Strongly coincide,
Pulling up and away,
Tugging the sand from the bay.
My mind is a lot like the sea in that way.
It dips and it falls,
It falters and it crawls,
But then sometimes learns to just be.
To exist in...Read More

No More Pretending
Stop pretending
That everything's alright
Like nothing happened
Liek it didn't occur.

Stop pretending
That you can't see the damage
Caused by your ignorance
While you slept your life away.

Stop pretending
That everything's stable
In actuality its begun to crumble
Chopping down our family tree
As it turns to splinters.

Stop pretending

It's not really real
It's not even fantasy
More of a circus
Full of conjurers tricks

In the absence of complication,
trials and tribulation become distant memories,
Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes
inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind.

Unless, that is, one thinks as I do,
that smooth sailing may dull creativity,
In complacency there lies no essence of surprise,
thus inspiration...Read More

End Actually



Split the difference

Meek or Innocent

A pocket full of Ashes

We all fall Down

In Nursery Rhymes

The age of innocence

Is puntctuated by the crack of a heart attack

As the light at the end of the tunnel
saying thanks for visiting slowly fades away

Until nothing...Read More

The transmuting concept of identity called color
changes on contrived palette inventing color mélange,
while conceived chameleons crawl on human faces.
In the ostensible show of life’s so-called drama
enactments perfected with the labor of passion
aureate the sequel created by metamorphic alchemy.

I’m not done yet,
but I’ve figured out one thing.
All this life experience, this world,
this reality,
is all about me, not you.
It is my mind that creates everything –
truth, actuality, emotions, hate and love,
dog s..t  and daffodils,
just me.

An ornamental doe and fawn,
suddenly move. Tails wave, noses nuzzle –
I have mistaken an actuality,
and now am thrown out of my skin.
I’m a millipede of fractal awareness.
I sniff the body-odor of the planet
take inward, then sift out
Australia and Africa.
