Everlasting Vision

Every new day
Is like every new year

One needs an open mindedness and steady head
A vision that is clear
And a plan of action to adhere to as well as a willingness to play fair

Every season gives us reason to adapt and change
So take on each new challenge with commitment and care

Let every regret fuel the momentum you hope to gain
Never forgetting lessons past mistakes ought to have forced you to learn
For nothing is made better by staying the same

Aim as high as you can
And if you fall short raise the bar even higher when you go at it again

Life is but a game in which we all get a chance to play
What differs is our approach… levels of participation… and results we wish to obtain


Eternal Impetus

Lord knows the young buck is no Jim Simons
So not quite the quant as such
Yet just as calculating in his approach

And he won’t stop
Even if he gets what he wants
The medallions, the funds
The freedom to express his creative arts


letting love lead

snoerkling with the seals
paddling with the penguins
diving with the dolphins
all the things we enjoy
yet in this moment
nothing brings more joy
or beats how it feels
to have you steer this tandem kayak
while I power it up
just like you direct the course
of our love


Memoirs of the Moribund

the coterie of statecraft collusionists
prescribed neoliberal economics
which involved a lot of palaver in administering
structural adjustment programs which would ultimately serve the rich
and cater to a class of conspicuous consumers

at the same time centrist movements felt the power shift
and since they couldn’t compete with established free enterprise capitalists
they became dependent on a system that would not protect them
and with that came an end to the development of their worker-centric ideas around financial independence


Nature’s Garden

A little older now
Quickly it seems the year’s moved along
Still I know not why, what, when, where or how
But each day I’m open to learning… keeping the mind as fresh as a new born’s

And as I reflect on challenges overcome and battles won
Never forgetting but instead expecting that there’ll be more to come

Will and determination abound with the drive to outperform
On a quest to conquer self – both ego and flesh form
In order to be better with age and truly experience growth

Father Forgive Him

Father forgive him
For a fresh spring of consciousness governed his being
Before detail and accuracy
Before language and logic

Before the world’s hopes
Before feathers from the flock
Before the cradle sheets
Before the names echoed
Before the birth certificate
And all things inherited

Father forgive him
The defiant spawn
For the customs and teachings he ignored
For any wrongs since his force wandered off and altered the course
