What this pit hole in my gut
Wandering mind wants to give up
Longing to be anywhere else
Futile attempt escape from self
Why it comes where do I hide
Wondering is there good inside
Longing stress free quiet peace
Searching for my release
Feeling disease within
Masked well veneer thin
Certainty time to make peace
Alternatively life must cease
How do you move through the pain
Battle the demons dry out from rain
Where’s the strength and fun
To endure without coming undone
Face the fear make it through
No choice not sure what to do
I know it is a transient state
I will get through this next gate
What are the internal demons you have battled? What
strategies have you used to get beyond them? How did
you talk to yourself about what was going on?

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.
