My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

Being pulled from all sides in different directions,
with force so strong that can move a mountain.
These are ropes made of ego,masked with righteousness,
scented with entitlement and pride.
confused,worried,a little lamb,running and searching for haven.

What colours a heart

What colours a mind

What colours a soul

we carry torches

from station

We are the Light
We Lead

No colour 
No religion

No epic

The race to confusion?

We are One
You and me

We are One
We all bleed

Habits are difficult to break…
and when lethal it is as if trying 
to scale a fence with barbs at the top. 

Smoking, drug addiction, 
bad relationships

the soul, gumming-up divine essence

in cemetery quietness				
tombstones rap
epitaphs of those
they are paid to represent…

on the outside arena
of the living
there are many of those
wearing and boasting
tombstones of life…

shiny clothes
worn in winter
and thin by hunger
that infuses the bellies
of their children…all
carrying newspaper-blankets
for bus stop benches…
above their heads

A hungry beggar
or low bootlegger
a good soul senses their pain
gladly giving change
thanks and coins exchange
strangers never meet again.

Homeless foul the street
someone ought to tweet
bad souls see lazy losers 
sidewalk filthy freaks
without baths for weeks
street drunks and drug abusers.

So much damage...Read More
