Ranch Poem – “Féinics”

3/2/16

Féinics

She is a Woman.
She is going to make a difference.
She will meet every goal and always create new ones.
She put in the hard work early, did her research,
and won’t be held back by immature thinking or insecurity.
She is grabbing hold of the new opportunity for women,
while representing in a way that will encourage further progress towards equality.
She is capable of anything when she is determined.
She won’t let social norms or pop culture or anyone tell her how she is supposed to think or feel.
She is a responsible healer exploring the cures and techniques from any hemisphere.
She will act with love towards everyone no matter what.
She knows she could not have found wisdom without the mistakes along the way.
She will live where the weather suits her and will travel to share space with the ones she loves.
She will not be a possession but won’t isolate herself.
She will bring people together and be a leader
who will guide them and lift them up with unbridled compassion.
She will always understand and cultivate her mind and body.
She will love the world unconditionally.
She will love other people unconditionally.
She will love herself unconditionally.
She will rise from every fire anew.
Like the féinics, she will rise.

Ranch Poem – “Love Got Lasik”

Love Got Lasik

It was blind for so long
but my love got lasik

I put those blinders on
to keep some old way intact
Beast of habit be gone
please don’t fucking look back

I lost a friend, much more than
I searched by her soul’s light
My fear fell away in the wind
but that ache grew greater at night

It was blind for so long
but my love got lasik

Didn’t see the luck and fortune of you
I was a gambler playing with time
Too content with some stubborn truths
A clairvoyant ignoring the signs

Darlin’ this was no easy procedure
Peeling back the hardened past
to reveal one thing that could be sure:
I’d change anything to make it last

We didn’t belong in the dark
I see your light and I’m ready to face it
I was blind for so long
but my love got lasik
