Handcuffs have me in chains
Afraid to move so much remains
Downward spiral free fall space
Never fit can’t find grace
Limbs splayed braced for worst
In my throat unquenchable thirst
Terror surrounds little respite
No slumber can escape the fright
Eyes wide open slam the ground
Suddenly stopped quiet around
Silence surrounds still serene
Quiet arises from my dream
Held me gripped in a vise
Thoughts entrapped turned to ice
Longing missing open gash
Devastation caused the crash
If lucky fortune shines
Surrender and see your eyes
Let go of fixation’s ride
Emerge on the other side
Through the tunnel light profuse
Wake discover your own truth
Journey each day in your mind
Choose a wise god to live inside
Do you know mood and perspective is a result of your thinking?
Are there places new thinking can provide rebirth?

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.
