Time for a Brake

When tyranny makes itself known
Through a voice that is your own
Know that it's time to stop that crud
Time to nip it in the bud

Know that it's time for a pause
Time to be quiet again
Time for listening in
Time to be with nature again

Know that it's time to reconnect with self
Time to remember you ain't the boss
Time to recollect you're in friendship with all of cosmos
And time to make space
For the love and magic of grace

This is the time to apply a brake
Time to give yourself a break
Time to give time for that, which is needed
Lest you be carried off in a current unwanted
Only to then be left with moments bitter
An outcome quite natural, of overflowing litter

So it's time to be quiet again
Time to reconnect and regain
That which seems to have been forgotten
That which in lieu of tyranny lies forsaken
Time to drop the weapons and surrender
Surrender to that seemingly elusive sense of wonder ~*~


Symptoms of Disconnect

Climbing up the stairs
Seeing danger 1 and 2
Entering the room
And there lurks danger 3

Laying a trap
Having planned their rap
Quick thinking
To counter the sinking feeling

Waiting for the moment
A second of break
A breakthrough
To the safety net

And the drama begins

Kindness and friendliness turning sour
Assumptions and treachery near and far
Drunk on fame and power
Playing their little game unfair

Oblivious of the viciousness of their acts
They bulldoze on
Running over life
High and blind on their ego

Unlistening and unmindful
They think they won the game
Influencing around with their fake smiles and tears
They think their pressure got them through

But they missed the point
Missed the fact that there's a law out there
Beyond the clutches of their little minds manipulative
A power that'll someday let its presence be known

The day that they won't know what got to them
The day they will remember
They made a mistake
Messing around with people's hearts

That day I hope they find it in them
To listen and acknowledge the spark in them
That drives their life in reality
And then give it space to thrive~

That day I hope they begin to connect
And build bonds with love
Instead of controlling with fear
A shift that's difficult but made easy when connected by love

That day I hope they find it in them
To open their eyes to the beauty of life
And let love supersede the baseless fears they harbor
To let light shine upon the beauty lying latent within~

Until then, we can only pray and hope
For they wouldn't listen at all
And meanwhile I hope I find it in me
To make space in my heart to be kind to them irrespective of it all~


As knots form in the nethers
And in fear do tighten the muscles and the nerves
One struggles to breathe, despite a healthy heart a-beating
And in apprehension, do waver the senses

The light seems distant as I fall into despair
'I don't want to go back there!' cries a plaintive voice
And as I watch in dismay,
She rolls back into that dark cavern that she came from

Sobbing with broken breaths
She evades looking up
For fear of seeing the Demons
Those she thought she had long escaped
And she sobs harder
Until breaths grow tighter
And she cries out for solace

A light shines blue upon her bodice
'Oh! But where does it come from!' thought she
Only to realise-
That the light shone from within

Emboldened by the presence of her good old friend,
She looked up at last
Only to discover the Sun shining down at her
And the breeze swooping down to caress her
With birds and animals alike showing up to embrace her
And she smiled
Releasing all her woes
Happy to be among friends again

Give it

Give it to K
What mind
What heart
I know not what they mean anymore
All I know is nothing is reliable but K
What might feel great today may turn sour tomorrow
What might seem evil today may turn acceptable tomorrow
This world is a shifting maze of delusions
Give it
To K~

Remember Who You Are

Play it just for me
As the seasons change
Remember how I used to be
Now I can't go on
I can't even start
I've got nothing left
Just an empty heart

I'm a soldier
Wounded so I 
Must give up the fight
There's nothing more for me
Lead me away
Or leave me lying here

Sound the bugle now
Tell them I don't care
There's not a road I know
That leads to anywhere
Without a light
I fear that I will
Stumble in the dark
Lay right down and decide
Not to go on

Then from on high
Somewhere in the distance
There's a voice that calls
"Remember who you are
If you lose yourself,
Your courage soon will follow
So be strong tonight
Remember who you are

You're a soldier now
Fighting in a battle
To be free once more
Yeah, that's worth fighting for

(Song by Bryan Adams, starring Spirit)
