Only the facts please they want to know
When in court their egos the show
They talk and talk they rarely listen
The heart’s usually shut and the Mercedes glistens
They speak in a language sometimes arcane
Their air of pomposity sometimes urbane
For all of the arrogance and all of the bluster
There’s often no fire and no courage to muster
But when you are caught in a nasty pinch
Where do you turn when you can’t give an inch
Their pledge is to give you all that they can
Unquestioned loyalty and a fist with a plan
Please choose correctly follow your heart
You can find a dear one whose life is their art
They’ll take on your cause with passion supreme
Presenting your case like a white knight’s dream
The first things I’ve said have some exaggeration
Caricature overblown truth paid little attention
When you quietly ask clients what they think
They love their own lawyer hands down in a wink
Have you ever been in a situation where you needed an advocate?
What was the experience like?
What did you learn?
How would you do it differently next time?
How were you served?
What was missing?

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.
