                       THE TRUTH

There is a lot of liars out here,


Criminals ,Cons- Hustlers.


But there is one thing and


That's if something isn't True


If you are not honest with them


They can always tell, and


They don't like it


It's funny how people don't understand that.

                 THE RIGHT TO EXIST

Feels like all my living 


has mostly been a whole lotta fightin


for the right to exist.


Sitting on a jetty in the autumn rain


Friday night


I 'm huddled in my raincoat


trying to write


without soaking the page


Girls in glitter and pumps come by


fallin all over and under  the fog


first rangers , then cops come by-


trying to arrest me cause I refuse


to evacuate with no cause


But the girls in glitter can throw their


pumps all over the place


Long ago and far away


Colorado, rustle my stuff out of tall


grasses and rattlesnake nests


Confiscate my photos,


artwork for evidence


sent my sage and herbs


for forensic tests


Try to build a raft to camp


the only place legal and free and 


they say my old discarded fence and


nails will never pass as watercraft


Oh,and so the stories go


just plain cut and dried injustice -


I try not to be belligerent


instead fight them with calm logic


make them question themselves


put their sanity on trial, to the test


so their heart may change. . . . .


But more often 


Authority proven wrong


gets MEANER : seeking heads to roll


so the battle goes on 


the never ending need to be right


and when you think you've found


peace, Look ! Here it some again !


Another fight for the right to exist.

                   LENTEN DARKNESS 

Lent will start in March this year. I've had to start

preparing for it now because it's been such an 

intense year.I¹ve always been able to put things 

in perspective, make peace with myself and move 

on after holy communion, but this year I may have 

to ask for some sort of extension.

I've met some very bad people and I¹ve seen bad 

things happen ­to me and to people around me.

I don't have a problem with forgiving people; 

I¹ve practiced that all my life. 

But I do need to determine how to forgive these 

people without enabling them to do these things again.

I¹m trying to understand their actions and intentions

so I can have a forgiveness that is clean and pure.

I won¹t receive communion at Easter with hurried

decisions of forgiveness it would be half-hearted.

Maybe I'll focus on what I can do, and get an

extension for the more complex things.

Banality of Truth.....

Truth is not only One of the most enduring paths of 

Human existence, 

It is also One that is scientifically correct.
