Primordial scream ripped heart
Hole in belly sets you apart
Voices of wisdom do not work
Shameful alone no tearful smirk
How did you get here how to get back
Do you deserve feelings so black
What antidote for heartfelt remorse
How can you end a winter of loss
Body is listless soul so blue
Emptiness loneliness pervading you
No time to hide no time to fear
This has been brewing many a year
Where do you take your tragedy
How to rebuild your identity
Where are sages to help with pain
Where is shelter from the rain
Where is the outcome that serves
While quieting raw fragile nerves
Where to find solace after you’ve wept
Is there a map or tentative step
One says withdraw another engage
Listen for wisdom inside tears and rage
Sorry no answer to find outside
Place for direction voices inside
Time now to flower ahead a birth
From a dark hour new sense of worth
All is in cycles down to know up
Phoenix will rise filling your cup
Do you have unhealed pain?
What does your wisdom say about resolution and wholeness?

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.
