(Inspired by Dr. Wayne Dyer)

We must remember the good. 
So much of it is worth remembering. 

A garage where we park our souls. 

Weighing the life we live and
what it leaves behind. 

We must get back into the meditation.
A path that you can be on if you just let go of 

the need to go somewhere. 
Saying what you have to say. 

Writing is just how I express my soul.  
I have to write. Divine energy. 

In my mind…I have to write.

Where every system is inspected and
every inspection is supposed 

to be someplace else. 

Go ahead. 
Steal my shoes.

It doesn’t matter when you
walk on holy ground. 

Learning what you love and
how you want to be. 

Mentioning anything.

Writing just because you have to.

Knowing that there is a purpose to get on with.
A knowing that overcomes suffering.
