Life wants a second inning
Stewing in my juices
Centering is more elusive
Searching for answers
I’m one of the prancers
Seeking balance in this moment
For me a kind of atonement
In the midst of living conundrum
Far better than purely humdrum
The path chosen no easy road
I took on a full bearing load
A life infused neurosis and fear
Falling hard on my rear
Old tapes judgments dance in my brain
Truth is lost in rain and pain
Looking out from this hole
I tightly grasp a vaulting pole
No alternative place to go
I do my best in this show
I could quiet stuff and stop
Just suck on a lollipop
I will embrace who I am
Reflective authentic truthful man
The last time you were “stuck” how did you let go of what was holding you?
How do you feel about your journey and how can you help others who are stuck?

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.
