Moms versus the Militia

Moms versus the Militia

How you gonna shoot us up?
What’s your revolution?
Militia man fighting a war with your ego,
You ain’t following my constitution.
Fuck You!
Carry your gun in your house, not in mine.
I know our life is divine.
I ain’t got no beef with you.
Your war is with your mind.
Fight it!
Put your Genie in a bottle and
Cork that shit!
May you find peace, in time.

Don’t Believe the Hype

Don't Believe the Hype

Song, Sing my soul
Soul, Sing my song
I have waited far too long
I have subverted my very being
Seeking, but never seeing
Remembering past criticisms
And Believing the Hype
They were wrong
God was right
My belly is bursting
My skin is ripe
Ready to create New life
That is authentically mine

Growing Pains

Growing Pains

Have you had your pain today? Does an apple take the taste away? Are we here to push the boundaries or float upon the surface? Shall we dare to drown in our fear only to come up for air violently gulping a piercing knot of pain into our gut? The pain is never enough. My desires are fed by the searing pain of not-enoughness. I shall forgive my parents for not giving me everything that I want. No, I thank my parents because that pain caused me to achieve my goals of college and entrance into the world of work. I embrace pain. I clench my fists and grind my teeth in anticipation of the pain that will allow me to swallow my pride and guide my eyes to all that is right. Wrong cuts like a knife and then there is pain. My sweet, beautiful, bloody pain that seeps into my heart out through my pulmonary valve to feed my soul. Ahh… there I grow again.

We have been Forgotten by the Supreme Court

We have been Forgotten

I will probably never be rich. I will always vote.
I will always serve the public in one way or another.
Most of the people I know are just like me.

They care about others.
They vote.

We are regular folk. We fight for our country.
We raise our children. We go to work every day.
But, in the US, we don’t count for much.

We have been forgotten, again and again.

We can’t give millions to PACs.
We don’t have wealthy lobbyists supporting our cause.
We can’t give millions to politicians.
Though, there are millions of us.
We are the majority. We are the populous.

We are the people that our Constitution and our founding fathers had in mind.
Yet, our Supreme Court, the ultimate arbiter of the laws of the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights has forgotten us.

We have been forgotten.

No Dry Wells for Me!

Resides within
Me
Then
I must Remember that
I am Overflowing with
Love
Trust
Mercy
Acceptance
& Grace
My Well
Will Never
Run Dry
I will Give
Of this
Freely
Without judgement
Forever….

Conquering Losingness

Conquering Losingness

What do you do when you lose?
Do you wallow in your losingness?
Do you paint a pathetic smile onto your face
Even when it is not OK?
Maybe you just brush yourself off,
And keep on going.
The fact that you don’t give up,
No matter what,
Makes you a winner.

Madness Penetrated

Madness Penetrated

Mounting the colossal heap of madness that existed in the paradox of my mind
I implanted the flag of victory, waving gently over the landmines of my soul.
Madness had suffered another blow.
Reality glowed with the newness of the sunrise.
Hope glistened in the shadows of my doubts.
I am
Here now.
If only for a moment.
