What keeps you up making fits of your sleep
Generating electricity that can make you weep
The longing for peacefulness you hope and pray for
So days can be content and at night you snore
What troubles you what keeps you awake
What robs your essence what’s really at stake
What noisy dialogue is twirling inside
That upsets the stability of your carpet ride
Where might you go for solace inside
How can your longing return to a sense of pride
What is the ache that gnaw and grind
What makes you want freedom in your mind
Why do you fear what may become of you
What do you hold dear is it slipping through
Where is the traction of your wanted mate
Where is the anchor of your stalwart of faith
Where is the other half that is part of your team
Where is peace in your precious dream
Where can you go when you’re feeling punk
What is the key that unlocks your funk
What are you searching for?
What motivates you to keep looking?
How do you enjoy the journey?
What provides satisfaction along the way?
How will you know you have found what you are longing for?
What if there is nothing to find but inner peace?
What if it’s all about 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.
