Stumbling onwards

Stumbling onwards

Nostalgia-pain is due, but
Having hosted revenge-hate
I feel surprise-relieved
At change’s buoyant state

Deep breathing and plyometrics
Aid this process from slipping
Into self-harming and despair
As enlightenment encroaches

As a final blow is due
The graceful coup de grâce
Is but a second milestone
Making today a fulcrum

A pivot to the future
Amid echoes from the past
Reminding me of failure
In its multitudinous forms.

Emerging fearless

Emerging fearless

Bridges have been burned
And precious does it feel
No going back here-now
Boding well for the future

Fears are quashed by waves
In the loud light of day
And gravity’s grip releases
Upon first due notice

The pre-emptive attempt
To unravel knots of confusion
Use words to explain why
A feeling rarely occurs

Just spot that chance
Spark a chain reaction
A complex of procedures
Inherently harmonising

Avoiding the worst
Establishing contingencies
Keeping life on pathways
Amid the shifting of sands

We stop digging down
Place a mask on reality
Begin proceeding to progress
Nodding reverently to error

Mistakes induce it
Practice annuls it
Determination impairs it
And the list goes on.

Time dilation

Time dilation

Time is an extrapolation
A guide to the achievable
Spewing from the navel
Lifelong perpetual extrusions

Progress dresses in exponents
As populations swell the ranks
Of aqueous sacs of synapses
Each ensconced in personal space

Except we’re über contiguous
Interlocking into our tesseracts
Horse-trading dilation devices
Ignoring cellular growth patterns

What change outside alludes
To stagnant surroundings
New neurones echo errors
Unawareness extends endless

Integrated into this filter
Mixed with promises of respite
Are actions seen precisely
And life drawn out slowly


Revisionism

Revisionism

My grand unifying theory

Of everything

Is everything

But that

Doesn’t stop me

Pursuing enigmas

Saying to myself

It’s probably already

Out there

In some form of overlooked

Manifesto for living

That in any case

Bears cultural hallmarks

Exempting it from status

Universal necessary

That in any case

Out-endures history books

Rewritten to update

Antiquated ideas

Of who killed who

Soppy sceptic

Soppy sceptic

We meditate
Open our minds
Which in return
Flush into our blood
Addictive opiods
Yet this is not seen
As being well understood
