Ranch Poem – “There and Back”

1/10/11

There and Back

Close my eyes, recite mantras inside
Flown this way before to my destination core
Home on the Range, I know it’s morphed and changed
But we must make the most of it, that’s no secret

Please don’t mistake awareness with knowing
Fountain drips while we are awake, we sleep while it’s flowing
Be aware, 3rd eye stare, never fear

We all yearn for honesty, and honestly what is that for me?
Demons inside and out, some can enter the heart and crawl about
Inspire yourself to stand strong and sing your praises like the words to our song
Leak your hidden mistakes. Shift the plates. Awakening quake

Please don’t mistake awareness with knowing
Sky flurries while we are awake, we sleep while it’s snowing
Be aware, 3rd eye stare, conquer fear

A week in Midtown, two parts grins two parts frowns
The flash of siren, the boom of lights, skyscraper nights
Always hard as hell to decide what thoughts to reveal and which to hide
You gather with your crew, proud of the ones you love-the way things grew

so long to the decade. so long to the hustle
so long Arlington. so long New York
so long global cover ups. so long personal dishonesty
so long capitalist castles. so long pipe dreams
so long friends. so long enemies
so long schedule life. so long juggling act

it wont be long before I’m there and back
it wont be long before I’m there and back
