Old Souls

What is human what is pure being

Souls well-traveled souls well seeing

Young souls wrestle they fuss fight

Old souls walk softly guided by light


Already know on their journey home

Old souls getting close to the bone

Wide wise perspective gift of their art

As life evolved from head to heart


They understand enduring food

What is essential to keep a fine mood

It’s not about winning earning or status

Growing learning serving what matters


Losing direction in a stressful life

Time to visit a mindful midwife

Get an old soul sit at their feet

Drink in their dignity enjoy a treat


Have faith in knowing lessons they hold

Heed calm direction they know the road

Angels among us hold god’s message intact

Follow their footsteps to the right track


Who do you know, including yourself, that you call an old soul?

What is it that you observe and what value do they provide?

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.
