Profound sadness weighs on my bones

From top of my head filling my toes

Weight of molasses clogs every pore

Heart cries screams can’t take any more


How did this happen what caused the curse

The hole in my heart cannot get worse

Eyes filled with tears wetness red burn

Where is some solace which way to turn


Something is missing in my empty heart

A mystery attacks each fresh start

What can I withdraw to fund a new life

One that sustains without screeching strife


Is there a guide getting me to a new place

A pasture of sweetness my slice of grace

Give me strength again to walk in the light

To pick myself up set a new sight


Grant me the courage wisdom and such

To get beyond shame I’m feeling so much

I want to be with and stay on this earth

I need some help resurrection rebirth


Do you have a sense of how you betrayed yourself?

Who do you need to apologize to and what changes can you make to regain congruence?

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.
