It is now clearly upon us,
this new age that is led from the heart
of life as we know it, not just
from its head.
Rhymes with lead, dead,
our solitary bifurcated top,
not wedded to its twin, a
Feelings come before thoughts
though we think it's the other way round,
that’s only our mind being
scared by the crowd.
The brain trying ceaselessly to make some
sort of sense of the fearsome pain
of brokenness, in its
such dissociating dysphoria,
disorients our perception
to dissembling dystopia.
Such chronic blinkered dissing has drawn its tatty shade
on our manmade ways of living numbed
out, cut off, frozen—of being
We dis courage
deep within us, “thinking” it safer
instead to take cover in number,
to duck in the dread.
Stuck hiding and seeking,
never finding the source, for
our sights have been set
on a dislocating course
of what others’ think and have and prize,
so, unlike what we do, we’ve been trained
thusly to stuff it lest we be found
Earning tacit approval, a like
here and there, is it enough
to assuage the gnawing
Something’s off in the recipe,
the bakers scratch their crusty breads,
whilst those who feel their feelings know
ingredients have been misread.
For the proof is in the pudding,
as so oft it has been said,
and love is the answer,
though not from our heads.
It is the heart that holds this wisdom,
first to pulse the body alive,
it forms before the brain,
it tells us how to thrive.
Not merely survive
as we have been serially taught,
for eons, millennia—forever—that’s how long
It’s time to remember
what we came here to do:
love ourselves, one another, that’s all
—it’s simple, but true.
Courage isn’t a lack of the presence of fear,
it’s taking its small hand and
whispering, it’s ok,
I am here.
