Old Souls

What is being human what is just being

Souls well-traveled with so many seeing

Young souls wrestle they fuss and fight

Old souls walk softly seeing the light


Nice to imagine on our journey home

Old souls already down at the bone

A wide wise perspective part of their art

Their life evolved from head to heart


They realized what’s enduring food

What is essential to keep a fine mood

It’s not about winning earning or status

Growing learning seeing what really matters


When you lose perspective in a stressful life

It is time to visit a mindful midwife

Get quickly to an old soul sit at their feet

Drink of their dignity enjoy their treat


Have faith in their knowing lessons they hold

Heed their calm direction they know the road

These angels among us hold god’s message intact

Follow their footsteps they’re on the right track


Who do you know that you have called an old soul? Why?

What is it that you see, feel, observe?

What value do they provide?

What part of you feels like an old soul?

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.
