Fight For Your Right

Don’t give into the drama

Stay strong and persevere

Don’t let the problems hold you down

Or you’ll never go anywhere.

 

It’s an illusion

Meant to stop you

From being yourself.

 

Don’t let it.

Keep going.

Against convention

Against fear.

Against anger and frustration.

 

Fight for your dream.

Turn it to reality.

 

That’s all

There is to do.

Body and Soul

Slow and steady

Is the way life goes

It grows, flows

One day at a time.

 

No time machine

No invisible cloak

No secret potions

Or answers.

 

Hard work,

Persistence

With resistance.

 

Sturdy legs

Of belief to stand on

Carry you through the world

Where eyes of reflection

Give you insight.

 

Lungs breathe in the passion

And the love flows through

Your heart to your body

That protects you.

 

Hands create

Your vision

And ears hear

The sweet sound

Of living.

 

Let it

Seep into you.

Feed you.

Restore you.

God’s Ear

Been up and down

and all around,

man.

It’s taken me a while

To finally come back

Into my own.

 

Swirling, twirling

Round and round

—Karma—

—God’s Ear—

Spiraling to the center

Of being.

 

Can’t fool yourself

You’ll always know

When things are truly right.

 

Klink.

Blink.

 

It happens so fast

Suddenly you know

You know

It’s always been there

Inside you.

 

It’s when we stop looking

around

Stop lusting.

The grass ain’t greener

On the other side.

 

It’s where you stand

You gotta grow.

 

All things come back to you,

It’s who you are.

Experiences they make you

Don’t be afraid

They can’t break you.

 

Sometimes we get thrown

Off the course

Of our serenity.

 

Don’t worry

It always comes back

to zero

the hero

good-for-nothing

know-it-all.

 

People look

And stare

Judge

They glare.

 

Don’t let it

get you down.

Own it.

It’s your greatness

People fear

Not your worst.

Golden Moment

Life is beautiful!

Despite it all

It’s beautiful orchestra plays on.

We think about the future:

“Tomorrow will be better,

I’ll plan today and play mañana,

Today is for the ‘morrow.”

It feels like a rehearsal practice

No real deal

You’re patiently waiting

All the while loosing today

Wake up and cherish

This closing moment

It’s golden, it’s true,

It’s all for you.

Inspiration

inspiration

The idea for this painting comes from yesterday’s song post: Terrapin Station.  Part of the lyrics say, “Inspiration, move me brightly.” I take the word brightly to mean happy or cheerful.  Sometimes art can be tolling for the artist, a lot of pain can be felt as the artist tries to produce his or her work. This line makes me think of the inspiration for art as a positive influence that moves a person to a better place, brighter and happier.
