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.

Unseen Jewels

Neither
money
power
nor notoriety.

Will give you
the measure
of a man.

It will not
account
for the unseen
jewels of his life.

It cannot
tell you
how much
he has loved.

It cannot
measure
his joy.

Nor account
for the wisdom
of his soul.

Though
his esteem
of such things
may.

Children of the Mind

Children
of the mind
fill our lives.

Hungry
for whatever
we have.

Craving
most of all
our attention
and time.

Demanding
that we know
and defend
their names.

Identity
money
and fame.

Ego’s spawn
will take all
that  you have
and become
all that you are.
