All Is Well

Alas, all is well,
although the misery of the world lingers.
Philosophers say any pain in our heart
is a reminder that we live, that we are human.

So the great wheel turns while we stumble along beside it,
a circle moving quickly, not yet ours to board.
Our boarding pass of tears that gains us passage,
that final price not yet met,
until all teardrops are spent.

That time will come when no pain is felt,
and tears are a distant memory,
then we climb on board.
Alas, all is well.

Fearless After Love Leaves

I want to be fearless
after love leaves,
an offbeat reveler,
a lustrous cowgirl,
facing things with effective focus.

To continue being strong
and showing humility,
even though being kind is what some
people fear doing the most.

When the world seems combative,
to keep an audacious passion
for sharing things which the lonely
and unloved crave.

Being true and brave,
even when my bones are clacking inside.

Like a marshmallow aflame,
letting the brightness
and warmth of my blaze
light up the world.

Getting You

A mile in your shoes gives insight only into that mile.

Before and after un-noted.

I want to get what you’re about.
I wish to know what dreams you carry

toward the abyss.

Getting you, I see at last.

Getting you, that seeker of oblivion.

I only need now to get away.
