We race on the internet to find the next thing.
“Trump trains, Mueller advancing, Floods
and natural things.”
War and peace, bombs and lies—the truth
hides the fact that usually there’s…
an answer behind us.
History teaches, waits to be hailed like
a cab down the street, like prayer that tells
us not to drive so much raining down
Spring like sleet.
Sheet after sheet, I look back to Samuel
asking for a king, JFK killed by members of
the CIA, slavery never amended in this country,
contracts and treaties killing native people—
tossing them out of their own land so we
can abuse it.
The answer is behind us.
Amends to make, cakes to bake for perceived
enemies you made on our way to friendships
to make—this can’t wait, ask an alcoholic on the
twelve-step train we reach number eight.
“Made a list of all persons we had harmed,
and became willing to make amends to them all.”
It starts to make the sidewalk clean…
Walk with me to number nine:
“We made direct amends to such people wherever
possible, except when to do so would injure them or
The answer is behind… in the road we self-forked
by self-will run riot out-rooked, pawns to the queen,
take a look at where we have been.
Immorality and lies from the White House is not new,
corruption and untruth.
Look back, get hit in the front was not always the rule,
if looking both ways you see a safe pool on which
See yourself as you are, see me but better yet: see
our history, go backwards to see the path ahead,
and see that covert government makes people dead.
It’s never too late to turn around, rescind Samuel’s
request—ask God to be our king, Something Bigger,
a Higher Power, not the corrupt men and women better
served to just be followers.
The answer is behind us, the wall that we made. To
chip it away takes mighty tools, or none at
all, remember Lao Tzu who said that to do nothing…
gets everything done. We are powerless… Our leaders
not in any way “powerful,” especially during a flood
Ours is to enjoy, but first reflect. Stand by the pool,
see the past and watch it dream into now for
Peace’s will to perfect—this could be the Way!!
Looking back when there’s a safe moment, study and
read a book to go with your internet.
See the news today cresting from a historical wave
of past activity and doings. Be the one who sees
the now as an avenue of the yesterday parade
brewing to end the alcohol and drug sales stewing—
growing wings, flying rampant through the wide
path to death, so the devil takes his due, God sidelined
to watch our response.
We do and dream, things aren’t always what they
seem, and I—
I took the path less traveled back, more is less,
less more, the answer behind us clear as bells
at Christmas time converting mass amounts
of people to snowy July feelings of rebirth.
The answer behind us takes work. Stop drinking
flammable liquid, rebuke TV drug ads and walk
away from your car enough to feel five senses
bringing you to your critical sixth:
so hard you’ll wanna cuss!
The answer is behind us.
