Fearless reason in an age of frightened absurdity.

Breathe Free and Die in Comfort

We live
in servitude
to our past
and future
selves.

Enslaved by the
consequences
of our past
and anxiety
for our future.

Our past and future
tied irrevocably
to the present
with an abstraction
of value.

Time
is money
and our
lives collateral.

The debts
of youth
and concern
for old age
impoverish
our present.

We forfeit
our youth
and dreams
for hope.

Hope
that we will
one day
breathe free
and die in comfort.

The World Needs Saving

The world
needs saving
but not from
you or I.

It needs saving
but not from your
horror filled gaze.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show the way.

The world
needs saving
but not from
our broken hearts.

It needs saving
but not from our
anxious protest.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to be a different way.

The world
needs saving
but not from your
sweet soul.

It needs saving
but not by
you or I.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show
how to be the way.
