Trust we place in those close
Holding who will give most
Sometimes true sometimes not
That provides a very thick plot
The hope we hold for our life experience
Expectation we’ll achieve something serious
Giving and taking through ups and downs
Hoping real family is there through the rounds
We get frightened shaken to the core
Concerned we’ll end up in a ball on the floor
Think of a vision you hold from youth
The warm cradle of family a place of truth
Uncles and aunts cousins galore
Neighbors community could there be more
As you journey forth looking for life
Treasures you love cut with a knife
Are you concerned about your rebirth
Do you still search for your self-worth
Foundation of being connection and place
The bosom of family opportunity for grace
Have you sustained any great loses in life?
Were you disappointed by or did you find comfort and solace in your family?
What did you learn from that experience?
Have you ever thought of the opportunity to teach others how to take care of you?
Have you thought about creating your family?

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.
