Right on the edge between here and there

While you are feeling you’re getting nowhere

No place of grounding no place to call home

In the midst of a big crowd you feel alone


What keeps you stagnant what has you gripped

Keeps you from speaking your mouth is zipped

For all the others you have the answers

You often tell them how to be dancers


You want it all not to miss anything

You want everyone and everything

Want to let go what keeps you on the ground

Before your next perch is ready and sound


Given the givens what do you do now

To relieve the stress that furrows your brow

Do you turn left or to the right

Do you keep walking way past midnight


No one has the answer no one but you

This journey has taken and given much too

Time to get clear get facts and decide

Trust your instincts god is by your side


There is no bad choice cannot get worse

Living in limbo everyone’s curse

At some point “not knowing” becomes its own hell

When you recognize that let it be your bell


Do what you have to make up your mind

Make a decision put it behind

Then if you find you’ve chosen wrong

Choose over again sing another song


Do you have some big decisions to make?

What has been keeping you from making a choice?

Do you know that you can make another decision if you find out your choice is no longer the best one?

What is the real risk?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
