When tragedy strikes a lover
Take pain away quiet thunder
Prefer not to feel hurt sadness sorrow
Beseech gods change the tomorrow
Joy longed for sadly fleeting
Pray for tranquility in meeting
Want it to go away without scars
Laugh play romp among the stars
Help them see and know
Life lessons place to grow
No faint of heart or shrinking being
Get to learn eyes opened seeing
Go within for golden threads
Living’s not for selfish ends
Honor paths others walk
Cherish them not their talk
Give way more than take
Pay respect stay awake
Rant and rave let it all be said
Be with them help the end
Are lessons from your life experience or can you take from lives of others?
Who needs your compassion and empathy now?

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.
