FIRST CIVILIZATION

(Part 1.)


When they walked upon this earth

Diverse speech was widely heard

Cooperation, natural like the sun

Practiced without bias

Prejudice none

Judgement had no place

As they taught, and guided

Our human race

EGO


Pride or vanity

Maybe both

Swollen and sore

Critical words disguised as compliments

Cut deep through core

Killer smile’s able to inflict misery and pain

Turning sunshine to cold drizzly rain

Designed to protect

Minds armoury bulges at seams

Look out positions present and correct

But who can guard against truth telling dreams

Vulnerable, exposed in the open

Having to feel every moment

Shaking upon waking

Denial comes quick

Sergeant Major ego, addresses his troops

“We are invincible, our cause is just”

Perimeter established, ring of steel for a mile

Confidant, important, back in the game

Solitary playtime

Adoration and fame.

Incendiary


When you placed a dream lightly on my tongue

Nectar dripped from open lips

Time stood still

Only my heart moved

Turbo pulse out of control

Veins on fire, blood like lava

Supernova blast

Cosmic dust  carried on wind

Reaching eternity

I formed anew

Glowing light shone in the void

Purpose found

Clear and true.

Troglodyte


Damp walls keep me cool

Nature provides my food

Entrance to cave bathes me in light

Here I sit, into the night

Shooting stars entertain

Lifting my soul

Igniting my brain

I want for nothing

Let the world go by

Waiting my time

Until I can fly.

Chapter

Flower power birth

Golden ratio

Destination earth

Trials and tribulation

One more recruit

For greedy nation

Breadcrumb trail

To remind of origin

Expanding sponge soaked

Saturated memories

Linear journey waits ahead

Adaptation

Light suspended

Connection? Gossamer thread

Unbreakable

One day recounted

Lifespan encryption

Code buried deep

Within sleep

Live

Rolling thunder inside my head

Standing rigid, as I unravel like thread

Blood pressure rises, erratic pulse

Visions obscene before my eyes

Thoughts relentless, vicious and cruel

Can’t delete memory

My mind overrules

Soul becomes darker, riddled with hate

Down the alley, I see empty crate

A seat for my wilting body

I’m shaking, can’t stop

World becomes blurry, loud noise fills my ears

My heart hurts badly, eyes fill with tears

Laughing demons, prod and poke

Screeching “You fool; have this”

They dangled a rope

As I reached out my hand, my whole body felt light

A comforting voice rang loud in my ears

” I love you my son, I am here by your side,”

The spell was broken, my chest heaved a sigh

I stood up, focus returned

Strength surged through me

Casting aside my torment, I thanked him up high

Silence

Silence has a face
A presence
It stands there
Listening
Waiting
It thinks itself invisible
But I see its grin
Sadistic entity follows me everywhere
Heartfelt protestation
Swallowed mercilessly
Regurgitating
Spat out
Suffocating me with venomous wrath

Universal law

Walking the path of destiny is both scary and exciting

Tuning in to what’s around you is enlightening

Realizing how and why things happen takes discipline and perseverance

Things that cut to the bone, become a cocooning moment of clarity and understanding

Curled up, revealing itself only when the time is right

It’s Universal law,

Everything we experience

Everything we feel

Everything we thought was bad luck or bad timing, becomes crystal clear

It’s then, and only then, that the butterfly of knowing and wisdom reveals itself

Things that meant so much

Moments that angered, or seemed unfair, runs parallel with moments that gave great joy, hope, happiness

One plays off the other, and it can seem very chaotic and leave one feeling despair and bewilderment

But

This is the key to staying grounded, and aware

We are all aware, even though it may seem not so; This is designed to keep us listening to what the universal conscience is telling us

We all make bad choices, we make good choices too

It’s about stamina, and seeing it through

It’s about knowing

It’s about patience

It’s about confidence and knowing that however it plays out; It still exists for a reason

Maybe for future occurrences

Maybe to teach us something now

Maybe so the right choices can be forthcoming

But it’s there

It’s always there, and that in itself is a comfort and a reminder that we are never alone

It may seem that way

It’s waiting

For the day

It’s Universal law

Universal law must always be obeyed

Even when you think and feel that you broke it

There’s a reason to think that way

Never lose faith, never lose hope

The law is there to protect us, and!

Help us to cope.

Expired

Don’t eat from the honey jar anymore

It will make you sick, confused and sore

Been on the shelf for far too long

I read the expiry

The label was wrong
