What rages inside does not want to stop

God surely is laughing our species a flop

The gift of this planet is our sacred trust

Though we can’t harness our intention or thrust

The leaves on our trees shrivel and die

All the prosperity makes you want to cry

Such beauty potential promise denied

Where is our genius do we have no pride

Big bombs are so easy let’s explode the moon

This at our peril our species in ruin

Enough of boy toys time to grow and be wise

Having compassion when there’s rage in their eyes

Why not look for solutions why so quick to drop bombs

We know our missiles will cause greater harms

Let’s invite a collective the wise women we know

Let them steward this planet run the whole show

Using intuition and feminine wiles

Forgiving history turning rage into smiles

Holding our focus on what does not serve

Dooms us to discover we might loose our verve

War’s never the answer it only brings more

Enemies remember revenge finds a door

Dooming our children to the grave of our fear

Can’t we sing with heart song salvation’s so near

Enough here for everyone more than enough

Let’s explore how to care for rather than being tough

All people want freedom to bloom in life

Food shelter health education a path that seems right

All deserve safety opportunity to grow

Enough here for everyone a paradise to sow

Let us use our resources they are more than enough

Distribution the challenge serving those the right stuff

Do you believe we have a resource or distribution challenge?

What do you consider ways in which we waste resources?

If you were in charge what would you set as priorities for how we use resources?

Given that politics is the series of conversations by which decisions are made about how to expend organizational resources what do you think about the current US political process?

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.
