Rage inside hardly stops
God laughs our species flops
Planet a gift of sacred trust
Let’s harness intention and thrust
Leaves on trees shrivel die
All this prosperity yet we cry
Potential’s promises denied
Where is our genius and pride
Bombing easy explode the moon
Much at peril heading to ruin
Enough boy toys time to grow wise
Allow compassion see rage in eyes
Look for solutions no dropping bombs
Missiles cause much greater harms
Invite wise women we know
Steward the planet run the whole show
With intuition feminine wiles
Forget politics turn rage into smiles
Focus on what doesn’t serve
Discover while keeping verve
War’s not the answer only brings more
Enemies remember revenge finds a door
Dooming children to a grave we fear
Why not a heart song salvation’s so near
Enough for all more than enough
Explore how to care not being tough
All people want to bloom in life
Food shelter learning peace little strife
All deserve safety opportunity to grow
Abundance here in a paradise we know
Our resources more than enough
Distribution challenge deliver right stuff
Resource or distribution challenge?
If you were in charge what priorities how would you use planetary resources?

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.
