influence over glory

© Heath Muchena, 2015


when you organise your effort and direct your energy
you’re bound to sharpen your faculty
making you a specialist in your field of pursuit
and preparing you for the responsibility that comes with the attainment of power
power which inevitably follows if the method is exercised in action

they say to succeed one must take risks
but it’s crucial that one is able to distinguish
because a great champion never takes chances
which only means that they give unwavering commitment – in deeds – to their course of action

seeing as we are creatures that are inherently and hopelessly influenced by impressions effected upon our natures, it would seem wise to make the center of all individuals’ attention – an education that gives insight into our condition as humans

civilisation will always be built upon misguided intelligence
never wisdom – which I suspect would only put much of human endeavour into question

war is fought to overcome war
so round and round it goes

This Working Thing v

you’re always on the go
hurtling to the top

but now you need to take it slow
else you’ll burnout and drop

yes, darling… I know
just can’t bring myself to stop

have to tend the seeds I sowed
and I promise I’ll take some time off
as soon as I harvest the crop

She Said Series vii

the only way I can explain the difference between the love a woman has for her husband
and that which she holds for her children would be that
a husband she sees come into her life
but children she feels approach from the inside

selling self and such

the best manner of approach
especially when making a sale
is to always keep in mind
that most people do not want
what appears another wants to dispose of
for the same reason they will not be disgruntled about premium pricing
when the service is impeccable
and the delivery is embellished with personalised care
and unfaltering consistency

a call for clarity

observe without identifying
and do so placidly

it’s a sure way of learning
without the interference of conditioning

just like the orphan child who feeds from a wet nurse’s breast
without grieving

or those who love completely
with reasoning
