THE EGO TRIP

EASTER

THE EGO TRIP

Is The Ego Trip a journey?

To trip we sometimes fall.

For some a scraped up kneecap.

While others hit the wall.

For some there is discovery, art, science and a sharing of the rewards thereof.

Perhaps the Ego Trip is a WeGo trip.

A trip for one and all.

And yes, perhaps a journey.

Perhaps we need to fall.

THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF BUFFALO BILL

STUBBORN DONKEY

I gotcha said she and I said

Okay

And the format gave way

With a shrug as I tugged

At the fray of Nay

And Dissension.

 

I wantcha said she and I said

No way

And her smile gave way to a pout

Then a shout

But no mention

Of Love,  yea

No mention.

My, but she’s hard to understand. So what do you think of your Church Lady now, Mr. All That There Is?
And what do you think of me Mr. All There Can Ever Be?
(I got scared when she said “I caughtcha”).

 

THE REST OF YOU

IMG

Untie the knot and soften your glare

What you think is there is knot.

What you thought was writ as laissez-faire

Was read but green with rot.

 

Untie the knot and soften your glare

Laugh and

Giggle and coo.

What you thought you heard was never said

What you failed to hear was You.

 

Untie the knot and soften your glare.

Empty you mind

(It’s rude to stare)

Allow the moment to be

And dare

To Listen;

Listen

To The Rest

Of You.

THE REST OF ME

?????????????????????????????????????????????????

The Rest of Me is Fearless,

The Rest of Me is Loving,

The Rest of Me is Successful,

The Rest of Me is Giving,

The Rest of Me is ForGiving,

The Rest of Me ignores temptation, fear and emptiness.

To ignore The Rest of Me is like walking after sundown on an unlit street,
cursing the crutches which support my faceless image,
the excuses,
the justifications,
the incessant mutterings
and the clamor of conflict
intruding on the Beauty around me.

I ASK NOT  “no crutches”, nor do I curse them; I simply say “Yes” to The Rest of Me……..

I say “Yes” to The Rest of Me”
