Place

Can you ever go back home?

This Place beckoned you once

Bienvenue, your well coming

A beacon to come lay roots

Now this Place calls you twice, thrice

Did you ever really leave?

You don’t ever really go

This Place stays with you

The roots fooled you a bit

You thought them underground

They also took place inside you

Home is no physical place

It is in the hearts of the people

Whom within it takes root

Truly, you can never go back home

You may have left it to find yourself

This Place never left you

This Place always finds you

You are always home

Home is always in you

Interference Pattern

If you are the crashing wave

You will leave an imprint

Whether asked for or otherwise

People are forced to weather it

All waves break in time

So what’s the goddamn hurry

 

As the wave you crest

Expecting others to surf you

Pay attention to the details

If they are building castles

You are their reckoning

Perhaps their liberation

Few can tour such swells

While manufacturing the shoreline

 

You are the crashing wave!

At last escaped the ticking sands

I get it, you found the vast sea

Created a beautiful undulation

Your wish is for the world

For them to feel as free

They must go into their own spirals

 

So stay in the ocean and keep cresting

True lovers will come to you

When their path is intrinsic

Ready to journey your curls

Don’t crash so hard my friend

Along the cragged shoreline

Leaving yourself ragged

And the sand builders jagged

 

It is the path of some to disturb

It is your path to sing

Your salty sea spray shared

Inviting but unexpecting

Harmony without interfering

Save for the inevitable ripples

That become tidal forces

For those sand dwellers

 

The tide is your effect

It is more than enough

Let your wave be yours

And for those that dare

Creation without interference

Your mastery and master key

 

You are an artist

You are an artist

It is your nature to create

There’s no sense denying

Nine to fiving

You will always project

Unavoidably so

Every moment a canvas

If you can handle it

If you choose to ignore this

You will create anyway

Only inside your heart

Creating walls and ramparts

Turn this inside out

Or it will go outside in

Countless traps and cages

That span your troubled ages

Repeating and retreating

same old patterns

Faking living other lives

Enough! It is time to dive

Reach inside yourself

Pull yourself out of the spiral

Suffering is not an entitlement

This is your enlightenment

Yes your internal prison

Is beautiful in its way

But these golden chains

Are hiding your pain

When you reach within

And emerge with self love

And a merging happens

You are no longer trapped in

There is no place for you

Where you can be happy

Until you admit your nature

As a beautiful creator

It is true some will resist

These are not your people

They have their own people to find

You must be with your own kind

They will understand

They will celebrate with you

So pull out your guitars, paint, drums

Hallelujah, your time has come
