Meditation (For My Nephew)

never want to come off self-righteous, don’t want to
be over zealous to so-called non-believers because it might just
block us All from Higher Purpose, Guiding Light in service
to Universal Spirit, union with the Divine
the Higher Self that knows no boundaries
when principled struggle is intentional then We can’t be confined

BE

a Blessing to those perceived as enemies
turn negativity into positive energy
that becomes the shield and the sword
no need to brandish weapons in this spiritual war
destroy only when ready to build greater capacity for
wisdom and knowledge and always strive to gain more
patience mastered when it’s central to practice
develop a strong core because it’s more
than just a virtue, it’s a tool for survival
in a volatile environment that’s ruled by change
the only thing that We ever promised
so always learn to adapt and evolve
in a world that implores you to remain the same

stagnation is death

let each breath be rebirth a renaissance
the body has intelligence that We’ve been trained to ignore
and the mind has been programmed not to reach full capacity, so
growth is stunted and thought immature
feed both
mind and body only the healthiest
nutrient-dense substances designed to restore
the greatness that We’ve been created for
nothing’s impossible when We realize the Higher Purpose We’re working toward

… LIFE

living out the Higher Purpose, Guiding Light in service
to Universal Spirit, union with the Divine
the Higher Self can’t be confined
cause stagnation hinders none who seek
to nourish self and others in both body and mind

Building (for Stacy)

sharing my soul with you is difficult
because the fabric fastened together
into the quilt called self
may be damaged
when in the possession of hands
too sharp too careless

but i overcome difficulty and share my soul with you
because our friendship builds
trust yields beauty
that mitigates the risk of trauma
