Powerful emotion guiding our ways
Impacting action dictating days
Longing forgiveness release from pain
Searching for sunshine in pouring rain
Reflect on what you’re guilty about
Response awakens with a shout
Has your life been controlled by shame
Blame shaping actions diluting fame
Do what you do to quiet the guilt
So you feel better about your own quilt
Engaging expressions of righteousness
Keep others from knowing your real self
Is your life hidden under this guise
Does the shrouding keep you alive
Not pretty or squeaky clean
Cycle repeats a nightmare dream
Can you break the chain of your prison
Daylight awaits guilt subsides with decision
To reveal the life that’s yours to have
Let go of the guilt don’t feel so bad
What are the places where guilt is a driver in your life?
How might you change that?
What would be the benefit?

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.
