Guess I shouldn’t wander too close today, when joyous words sound like crumbling brick
In simple dreams…I share names with comets. I rally my brothers and sisters. We are NASA’s progeny
Though lives fall like sand, everyday, there is no peace here.
Where there is beauty in life there is longing for the end
Peace can exist only in the present moment. It is ridiculous to say “wait until I finish this, then I will be free to live in peace.” What is “this”? A diploma, a job, a house, the payment of debt? If you think that way, peace will never come. There is always another “this” that will follow the present one. If you are not living in peace at this moment, you will never be able to. If you truly want to be at peace, you must be at peace right now. Otherwise, there is only “the hope of peace some day.
Who can tell the time
from beneath these clamoring
Surely not our former teachers
kneading wax onto rope
carefully pulling knots.
I was a plastic tv doll in a dream.
I was a working human being.
