The roller coaster is just getting started

Full compliance from the masses is what they have

It’s a world-wide conundrum

A one percent faction found around the globe

The sheep are everywhere

They run amok

And within the flock

That one percent wake folk

Sit in isolation

Mindless herds walking past

They’re not dumb

They’re having a blast

Too much fun to be had

You only live once

The taste of bacon more important

Than that smart pig

They’re the bad guys in Animal Farm anyway

We big bad humans

At the top of the chain

So entitled to ruin nature’s ways

All the while the bull market

Makes its way through

Head butting to cross

The other side of the road

Taking many in tow

Life savings in waiting

When due diligence grows

So why did the chicken cross the road

Did it know what was in store

For its future and it’s whole

Did it know to avoid

Greedy humans with addictions

Or was it traumatized on its own

Running from its afflictions

Everyone has a story anymore

All waiting to be told

Waiting for center stage

Cos what others think matters most

To those who do things for praise

It’s good to hear

Good to feel

Yet smarter men don’t need it


Can boost you to the sky

Make you feel tall

After every step you take

A giant enthralled

But what about at the end of the day

When no ones watching

No ones waiting to be impressed

To be made to laugh

To think a good thought

When you’re left alone

In your own sea of mind

Can you hear the whispers well

When you’re talking to yourself

Are you really listening

Or are you dismissing

Unable to hear the lesson

Life does what life will

Life tears apart a girl

Puts her back together

Piece by piece

Rubber glue

Words are inspired by you

By the universe in its entirety

Even if the methods are not likely

To bring you what you think you want

What you need

In for speed

Forwards and backwards and sideways even

The clock has a story to tell

Do you have the time to hear a tale

Of graceful beauty

Of intricate guise

Two faces divine

Souls older than eternity

Bright lights coming from within

Let it slide

Let them win

The thrill is the glory

More than half of the story

Who told you anyway

It was a surprise

Liberal as modern day lies

If you want your old normal

What you want are your chains back

You want to go back to being deprived of information

To being overloaded with entertaining recreation

Over-taxed and under-educated

You want to go back to trusting politicians

To believing the news as truth

Though you know in your belly that something’s afoot

Back to worrying about tailgating

As the yearly inflation

Is boosted with houses we cannot afford

We want more money but policies ensure

That mom n pop shops struggle too

In the face of destruction

When chaos ensues

But through your rose colored glasses

You don’t realize you’re a part of the zoo

One of the many marvels

Stuck in your small piece of land

And you cling to it like glue

Following the orders like soldiers

To vaccinate children and send them off to a school

That doesn’t educate them year after year

No critical thinking by our own doing

And in the same breath make fun of millennials

But that’s what society says to do

Not I said the fly

I see said the blind man

I bid you good night

You can go back to sleep

While the wolves run the streets

Howling night after night

Of the dangers in sight

They lurk gnarly and near

Happening year after year

Criminals in control

While most beg for their place in line

And then people like me hide

Cos we won’t stand in line

It’s not in us

We’re hated and ridiculed

When we come out of our caves

But when the time comes we’ll be standing in front

All the sheep right behind

Firmly trusting our guidance

No it doesn’t come from arrogance

For that will lead you astray

It comes from time spent

With your nose in a book

Taking time to train the mind

But you have to let go

You have to leave those chains behind

My love for humanity, and for the planet, has set me on a path of healing through love, compassion, and understanding. I'm originally from a big city in the big state of Texas, making my personality quite large. I then landed in a small town that's out-of-puzzles gorgeous where people still wave at each other when coming across each other in the street. This transition has helped my development and tried relationships with distance and sacrifice. I have 2 beautiful boys, Silas and Declan, and their loving father, Curtis, who make my world go round. My political views all stem from wanting to protect this beauty in all its forms.
