Loose ends abound inside and out
This presence evoking a screaming shout
Earnest beginning expectations high
Now fallen shattered you want to cry
Suddenly feeling at the end
No longer excited by your trend
Wanting it different holding high hope
All you feel a sense of “nope”
Each time descended into this hole
Harder to climb out rescue your soul
Strength and resolve harder to muster
Cannot get by on blarney and bluster
Great expectation vision you hold
Daring bravado making you bold
Courage gone fear quiet and cold
All you want someone to hold
Hope and faith waning resolve low
Critical moment to reflect and grow
Let time take you to what’s needed now
Learning and kindness sooth furrowed brow
When feeling down do you explore what’s behind it or just power through it?
Can you recall your most valuable lessons emerging from a place of deep sadness when you explored what the feeling was telling you?

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.
