Cuentame
Cuéntame un rato Con tus labios que me sonrían, Que me cantan. Cuéntame un rato Con tus labios me tocando el visaje, Se reuniendo con los míos. Cuéntame Con tus manos duras como dulces Que moldean y cambian cosas. Cuéntame Con tus manos me acariciando, Siendo mi cielo. Cuéntame con tu cuerpo, Parte del mío, Tu corazón, Música del mío, Tu alma Mas que la mía, La misma. Eternamente, Somos lo que eres; Eres lo que soy. Cuéntame, Como yo te cuento.

No Helping Hand
He laughed at their folly Every time he got his way And when they all might suffer, He just shrugged and walked away. Poisoned water Poisoned air He sent them off And left them to despair. Little did he know That he drunk from the same pool. He is better than no other And will drown in poison too. Ailing bodies, Lack of care. Printed numbers Never added up to life. Little did he know That his neighbor's ill would catch. His body just as vulnerable, He finally understands. But he led them, Raised machines. Too deep did they cut. Too much did their home bleed. Little did he know There was nowhere else to go That the planets aren't for sal

Prevail
Often, when hope recedes from our view To be replaced by a heavy darkness, We are fooled into thinking it gone. But take heart, Because the light yet out of sight Will by greater measure fill our lives. Reaching it may not be simple, But life was never meant to be so. Guard in mind your value, Strive to bring it forth To be grown and shared. And you shall prevail. Life will knock you to your knees- There is no doubt of that. But when you rise And regain perspective You shall prevail.

All That You Left Behind
I survived And you did not. How to comprehend? When I think of all that you've missed, All that I chose, All that you gave up, All that you left behind, That is the hardest. Today as I watch the day's end, I know how much I am alive. And I think of you, The colors you lost, The life. You will miss so much more: Friends you would have made, Love you would have had, A sister who might only have grown closer. And your love, Once your partnered dove, Left to heal the wounds, Asked to be happy. Beautiful soul, Gifted mind, Loving heart, Why did you leave us? We ask so many times, Never expecting an answer. We ask not with reason, But cry out

Only a Dream
It was only a dream, they say. If they only knew what he's seen, Where he's been tonight, Without ever opening his eyes, Perhaps they would not say such things. But they do not know- How could they? He cannot ask them to understand, Any more than he does himself, Until it surfaces in this world, Or even then.

War
Cadence of boots. Hearts beat as one. Oil in barrels. Ground soaked with blood. Numbing my mind. Removing me. They've taken my name. Erased my face. I am a pawn. They see me not. Bigger games played With living toys. Can't they recall This goes nowhere? Remembered or not History stays. Now comes our turn To fulfill it. Our souls and bodies Numbers tallied. Devalued so, The worst of crimes. Against what's left Of humanity.

Wayward Stars
We write our fears, Speak them out, So that we can comprehend Almost as though when we write them down, When we feel them, We can prevent them from happening Or understand them, Come to grips with reality. We write our hopes So that they might blossom, Without light or immediate prospects Almost as though when we write them down, The passing dreams become our own. They gain power, Or perhaps we do, Seeing what we can achieve. We catch wayward stars And befriend them, Adding to our own shine.

In Love With Life
I have fallen, Completely and irrevocably, In love With Life. It swirls about me, Embraces me, Fills me anew With Life. It frees me, Touches my heart, Sings to me Of beauty. It shows me the world As is and can be, Gives to me a kiss Of wind. Its colors love, Its warm hum a hymn. Sound and light Unite. It gives me choice, Renews strength and will, Guides my path, And frees. It grants safety, Welcomes me in dance, Visits me In waves. It brings me peace, Lets me love Without condition, Reminds me. It keeps balance, Wakes and lulls me alike; And I live With Life.

Wildflowers
Wildflowers grow here, Of a sort that I have not before seen, Let to flourish in this environment. Wildflowers grow here, Spring from between the blades like song, Peer from within the trellis where they grow, Unafraid to show their lovely faces. Wildflowers grow here, So unique in beauty and form, And fearing not prying eyes to deem weeds Or seeking hands to possess. Wildflowers grow here, Which elsewhere would not be emboldened, Or else might have lost that courage, To with such a light enter and gift this world.

Flight
I am in a field alone, Surrounded on all sides by softly swaying grass And the sweet scent of wildflowers that thrive here. The ground is cool beneath my bare feet And the tall grasses gently tickle my legs where my shorts leave skin uncovered. Beautifully bright pinks and blues interrupt the swaying landscape And creamy yellows reflect the sunny day's smile. Close to me there are fiery orange bursts, Proudly enjoying the brightest sunshine in the center of the field. Violet turrets peak out from below the reeds in places, Towards the edge of the meadow where trees begin to grow close together. To my left is a glittering ribbon that win

Impossibility
Others will tell you What you are And what you can never be. But you are not an impossibility. The color of your skin, Who you love, What you've seen and been, Are real. You are real. You are proof. Have the courage to believe What others will deny. Do not give in. Do not allow yourself to think of you As an impossibility, For only you can make it so.

Fallibility
Isn't it funny, How fascinated we are With our own fallibility? How mortal we are, And yet we are still surprised, Despite experience, When things do not go as planned. All of this must be part of a balance, A process beyond our perception, Eternal. Let us embrace our fumbles, Learn from them, And move on. Obstacles that move Will be replaced anew. Nothing is simple or free. Yet challenges strengthen the heart And allow us to choose the best path, Even if untrodden and full of adversity. A new perspective awaits, Well worth fighting for. And the next obstacle Thus becomes more easily navigated.

Just to Remind You
Sat in a chair on the bank by a stream, I must have drifted and got lost in a dream. All my lost friends came and sat by my side, all of them happy not one of them cried. Puzzled I asked, why are you all here? Just to remind you, we will always be near.
