The Way

 

 

 

Have you ever walked completely free from worry
Nothing but your thoughts no need to hurry
Alone with the world yet surrounded by friends
Both known and strangers there till the end
In a world so busy and full of noise
Let me show you the quiet of simple joys
Walk with me and I will show you the way
Our Camino, Our journey your story today

My Butterfly

 

They’re other people words
Or the stories they write
Yet louder than any siren
They intrude on my life

I hear their thoughts
And what I see is you
I wish they were mine
I wish they were new

What I can pen
Never seems to compare
Always lacking that feeling
Missing that dare

So I listen and imagine
And from there I yet try
To pen the words that I hear
When stolen by my butterfly

 

Jekyll and Hyde

 

Do you think I don’t see you lurking

There behind the glint in my eye

Always waiting for my weakness

The Jekyll I strive to deny

Not that my hyde is full of virtue

Or even close to morally safe

But when held in comparison

Still has goodness I can place

Less a devil on my shoulder

As a switch in my brain

Able to shut off all reason

And justify the profane

That glint I see now and that lives in my  head

Beckons me to freedom from thinking or dread

Questions my sanity and all I hold pure

Tries to control me with pure pleasures lure
