Deep in your heartache deep in your soul

Something is missing that makes you whole

It’s part of your essence the part that fills you

When it is missing you feel very blue


Most never find it they do not know

The treasures and blessings of loving so

Once you have tasted the thrill of a real kiss

All else is quiet compared to that bliss


When you get lonely and that ache creeps in

Remember the day when you left on a whim

You let go of wisdom tempted your fate

Rerouted your life from its stable state


The lovely trajectory the path you had set

Turned topsy-turvy by your unrest

Something so good so pure at its source

Was headed asunder straight for divorce


If you knew then what you know now

The foundation you had served you somehow

When you reflect a lifetime later

Wondering how your life might have been greater


The answer is buried way deep inside

Apology cannot triumph your ego’s pride

There is no choice you must let go

You’ll never know what was lost in your snow


What part of your past are you holding onto that it’s time to let go of?

What purpose does holding on serve?

What purpose does holding on serve?

What purpose does holding on serve?

What purpose does holding on serve?

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.
