Final Victor

Steps just like a whisper

This thing

This one

Sinking even quicker

Singing

Wisdom, what have you done

Cry out I am your victor

They said this day would come

Standing here before me

Fear masked but fool no one

Feel that bit of fabric

Fingers along a face

See what is before you

Goodbye

This is not a race

I can’t rely on memory

See there?

Ah, yes

His face

A kindness that went unnoticed

A love too often late

Estela

Tell It Again

Tell me the story

of the night

of the morn

when they walked in the fields

picking the corn

laughing and dancing

the dance of their life

bitter and sweet

tell it

then cry

Tell me the story

when he dreamt in rhymes

they live again

in the song

in the lines

the story of them

it’s yours

it’s mine

Tell me the story

then tell it again

the one where we laugh

the one where we cry

let it all out

then say goodnight

Not the Robinsons
An artist can capture magic with a few simple lines. Don’t over complicate things.

Words She Said To Me

DSCN8833

Once lost on the road

That one to nowhere

Running and moving

But going nowhere

Cruelest illusion

I was wrong

Unfair

 Mistake movement for progress

It’s likely we’ll share

A cab on the road

Up the hill

To nowhere

Telling the world

To please hurry up

Exhausted, busy

Rushing, rush, rush

When will we get there?

Wait, that’s not the way

Beware of that beaten path

Be careful

Don’t stray

Join me

Now hurry

No time to spare

No light at the end

Are you certain

It’s there

Wait, wait

No, I can’t

I won’t

So don’t wait

Green rolling hills

My star awaits

Go if you must

Rush to nowhere

Mi madre querida me dijo asi

It’s fear that drives people

Their lives

It seems

Fear that makes people

Forget about dreams

Better to walk

A path not yet known

Better to live

Something you own

Fear owns the people

I’m one of them

You little daughter

Are stronger

You’ll win

Your heart made of things

I gave away

To ready your journey

And chase fear away

Abandon the road

The rush to nowhere

You have a place

A beautiful somewhere

Down, down soft green hills

Never too late

Take flight my baby

Nowhere can wait

Many Said

Many said this before I thought it

In same or different words

With conviction, told in a language

Lost

Some time ago

Many said it’s fate

Don’t try, dear

Too hard,

At the end of the day

Something called your destiny

Will come to tell you the way

Many said

But as always, to listen

Lesson lost, even less

Obeyed

The hopeless truth of many

Was never meant to trade

Be it choice

Or intentional living

Destiny

Send it away

Take hold of what your day is

Bury fear at the feet of old hate
