I used to dance the frenzied step,
and walked with gods and spirits.
I used to feel the cosmic whirl,
the dynamic spin of galaxies.
Once I met a friendly nymph
who taught me great respect.
Once I was a friend to trees
and creatures large and small.
But now I am quite too consumed
with matters of the mind
to dance the way I used to dance
and speak with such fantastic friends.

Sorry to break up the haiku party! haha

“Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.” -Zhuangzi

"Though, as the crusade presses on, I find myself altogether incapable of staying here in saftey while others shed their blood for such a noble and just cause. For surely must the Almighty be with us even in the sundering of our nation. Our fight is for freedom, for liberty, and for all the principles upon which that aforementioned nation was built." - Patrick O'Dell

I usually wont post poems which I didnt write but every now and then I find one that I just have to share.


Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.

That age is best which is the first,
When youth and blood are warmer;
But being spent, the worse, and worst
Times still succeed the former.

Then be not coy, but use your time,
And while ye may, go marry;
For having lost but once your prime,
You may forever tarry.

-Rober Herrick



While you still have young blood in you, be bold! Take your chances and take your lumps or else you will never live up to who you are.

People are complicated.

And so it was to walk
to the back neither feather nor scale
flight destined to fail
yet wings adorned

Light goes away
a weapon at the side
were these the games they payed
darkness fades
yet wings adorned

Blade rings out on ground
life drains
emotion pounds
all things stop
yet wings adorned

And so it was to fly
to the back the weight
inside spills forward
a balance maintained
finally wings adorned

What has to come ? Will my heart grow numb ?
How will I save the world ? By using my mind like a gun
Seems a better weapon, 'cause everybody got heat
I know I carry mine, since the last time I got beat

Sage

The struggle
The tearing of the mind, the flesh
Dragged across the ragged peaks of life.

Their hands around my throat
Closing communication.
The spears into the spine
Twisted, by the hands of Fate.

But still the escape …
The panting breath of exhaustion.
I picked myself up
And carried on down the mountain side.

Older, I sit and ponder
The wisdom from the pain.
Am I wise?
