Beach

Finding myself at the beauteous shore

hand in hand with the girl of my dreams

Feelings welling from within my core

Waves softly blanket the sands.

.

As the sun sets on this most romantic scene

Awe-inspiring view, she makes my heart skip a beat

The perfect company, the vivid horizon sublime

Turning, she says “just take a NORMAL selfie”

Journey

Value

Are we born, created anew

with an essence, a reason to be

Pre-determined, a higher power to review

.

Restricted

Historically, by our essence

Little thought, resist desire

Simplistic, decision found in absence.

.

Meaning

Searched for, forgotten then made

Tenaciously to no avail, for the void is infinite

Individually grasping, society ambivilently portrayed.

.

Happiness

Sought externally, found within

Craved endlessly, enjoyed sporatically

A fleeting vision, scratching the surface of the skin.

.

Solution

Accept meaninglessness, enjoy your sanity

In a fruitless world, have some pumpkin

Your impact, measured by more then gravity.

On passion

So a friend of mine told me the secret to successful writing (and success in other areas) was to be passionate about what you are doing.

Now, I know what they were trying to say, without drive most projects fail before starting.

But I hate the word passionate, and the implications it has for giving advice.

Anyone who is already passionate about a project does not need to hear that as advice, and anyone who is not passionate about a project is not helped by being told they have to “love” the project to get it done.

Passion for something cannot be switched on/off, nor can it be achieved thru effort. In love-making, telling your partner to be passionate won’t make them a better lover, if anything it would create anxiety. If they did not already have that passion towards you, then you telling them to won’t make it magically appear.

There are many things in life that we must do without passion. Its unfortunate but how many of you are working in a job you dislike so you can progress thru your studies? How many of you are working at a job you hate but working towards a promotion that you will like? Or sustaining a family? These are things that do not require passion for the project/job, but need a drive towards a greater purpose/goal.

Either way, please don’t tell me to be passionate. That is not a learned behaviour, but an observable one. It is not something that can achieved by focusing on it. Better yet, tell me to find my passion. Then we can talk

Well, we can always talk, but who will listen?

On an island

A pinch of salt

Cracked pepper of course

A dab of hot sauce

Id cook my side but i cant reach

A hankering for hands

Cravings that dont help

Perhaps just the toes

Or maybe the feet

Seared to perfection

Hunger pangs rumble

Just the one foot

Pain. Then satisfaction..

Pass out

Anger

I could of eaten my boots!

Be like the clouds

Be like the clouds

allow the winds to push and direct

going with the flow

Carefree, your best aspect.

.

Learn from the cirrus

Let not pressures shape your condition

For even the mightiest of us

Crumble under deposition

.

There is beauty in all things after all

Be it a lonely traveller or in a sea of faces

If possible retain your identity

Unlike the wave cloud, mimicry without graces

.

Let also the arcus provide a lesson

Ride the wears and tears of life

The storm is behind and does not concern you

Unaffected by others strife.

.

So be like the cloud

Stay calm when you wish

In your anger let it be known quickly

Otherwise, let the flow of the world be your dish

View

Reflective panels adorn my view

to soak in the splendour of this world

the vibrancy fills me like beef in a stew

its affect like wind to a sail unfurled

.

In every panel a panorama of delight

the fields, the flowing river immerses the senses

The plumes of birds in flight

Furfilment without the need for pretenses.
