Helping Children

Sustaining The Future

Our experiences teach us how we’re to live.
The adult populations of this world create
The conditions for nurturing our little ones.
We can raise them like rugged cowboys with their guns
In an atmosphere toxic and fervent in hate
So they learn that it’s righteous to be aggressive.

What children are born into is of our making.
Each new generation experiences more
Of a challenge adjusting. Children under stress
Are so because the world that they know is a mess.
Where do they find the knowing to love and adore?
The answer we embellish in our awaking.

The issue of self-worth is a big one these days.
So it is most important to teach kids that they,
By the mere fact that they exist, are powerful
In creating their realities. Skip the bull
About having to struggle and toil through the day.
For each thing that they do shower them with much praise.

At times they may not be ready for the advice
That is given them. Do but the best that you can
To create an environment that will allow
For loving understanding in the here and now.
No single person is lesser or greater than
Any other. From there, it’s a roll of the dice.

Momentum At Rest

The Motionlessness Apparent

An explosion in slow motion, as it takes place,
Is a consummate spectacle to human eyes.
As we place ourselves out there in body and mind,
We remain optimistic for what we may find.
Have we looked enough inward that we realize
What the nature of time is and how it makes space?

This star system created a vivified rock.
On the surface evolves a thin skin of smart moss.
It has leaped off the earth now to kiss the cosmos
Without asking indeed if it wants to get close.
If we stayed where we are, it would suffer no loss.
That, to many a human, may come as a shock.

Does it seem like it’s moving or standing quite still?
That pertains to our chaos as we find our way
On this Mother we’ve come to know as our birth place.
We exist through a larger will we can embrace.
There are ways to align self to live out each day.
When momentum is graceful, life can be a thrill.
