I REALLY MISS THE STARS AT NIGHT

I BELIEVE IT IS OUR RIGHT

TO SEE ALL THE STARS AT NIGHT

WHY DO THEY USE THOSE STUPID LIGHTS

TO BLOCK OUR VIEWS OF SUCH DELIGHTS

THERE WERE STREET LIGHTS WHEN I WAS A KID

BUT I COULD STILL SEE THE STARS AND I DID

I REALLY MISS THE STARS AT NIGHT

THEY NEED TO FIX THOSE DARN STREET LIGHTS

THERE MUST BE A SOLUTION

TO FIX THE LIGHT POLLUTION

THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO BLOCK OUR VIEW

THE STARS BRING JOY TO ME AND YOU

IT'S FUN TO SPOT THE CONSTELLATIONS

THERE ARE MANY FASCINATIONS

WE CAN WISH UPON A STAR

DOESN'T MATTER WHO WE ARE

CHANGE THEM BACK THE WAY THEY WERE

SO THE SKY'S NOT SUCH A BLUR

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

WE SHOULD ALL BE ABLE TO SEE THE STARS AT NIGHT... NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE.

SOMETHING CAN AND SHOULD BE DONE. IT IS A GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO SEE THE STARS AT NIGHT. PLENTY OF FREE ENTERTAINMENT UP THERE....

ARE YOU HERE

ARE YOU HERE 

TO SHED LIGHT

ON THE DARKNESS

ARE YOU HERE

TO LEARN FROM MISTAKES

ARE YOU HERE

TO COMPLETE YOUR MISSION

ARE YOU HERE

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

ARE YOU HERE

TO MAKE THE WORLD

A BETTER PLACE

REMEMBER WHY YOU ARE HERE

HAVE AN OPEN MIND

SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND

PAY ATTENTION TO THE SIGNS

 

ARE YOU HERE

BE HERE NOW

BE PRESENT

BE MINDFUL

WE NEED YOU

Author's Notes/Comments: 

ARE YOU HERE

ARE YOU REALLY HERE

BE PRESENT

BE MINDFUL

BE HERE NOW

WE NEED YOU

WE NEED TO STRIVE FOR PEACE

MEN WITHOUT A CONSCIENCE

SUPPORT AND FIGHT A WAR

IT DOESN'T MAKE MUCH SENSE

WHAT THEY'RE  DOING  IT FOR

ONLY BUSINESS PROFITS

AT MUCH  TOO HIGH A PRICE

WITH SO MUCH LOSS OF LIFE

IT'S NOT A PRETTY SIGHT

WE NEED TO STRIVE FOR PEACE

WE NEED ALL WAR TO CEASE

Author's Notes/Comments: 

 WATCHING PLATOON AND WONDERING WHY. WHY AM I WATCHING A WAR MOVIE....I HATE WAR. I AM TOTALLY AGAINST IT. THERE ARE NO WINNERS ONLY LOSERS. WAR NEVER MAKES SENSE. WE ARE IN NEED OF PEOPLE WITH MORALS WHO CARE ABOUT ALL LIFE ON THIS PLANET AND DO NO HARM. SADLY TOO MANY PSYCOPATHS WITHOUT MORALS OR CONSCIENCES SOMEHOW ARE IN CHARGE. CORRUPTION IS SO OUT OF CONTROL. IT'S PRETTY PATHETIC. I HOPE THERE ARE A LOT MORE HUMANS WHO SUPPORT PEACE AND ARE AGAINST WAR...TOO MANY JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO TO  FIX THE BACKWARD THINKING OF THOSE WHO FIND IT TOO PROFITABLE TO GIVE IT UP....TOO GREEDY...CARING MORE ABOUT MAKING MONEY THAN ANYTHING ELSE. VERY FRUSTRATING. PEOPLE ARE BRAINWASHED  GIVEN MEDALS FOR KILLING PEOPLE OR SAVING THEIR SIDE AT THE COST OF THE OTHER SIDE...WHATEVER...TRUTH BE TOLD THEIR MEDALS MAY AS WELL SAY...I WAS A BRAINWASHED PAWN IN A RICH MAN'S  GAME... THERE ARE NO HEROES IN WAR...ONLY BRAINWASHED MEN TOLD THEY ARE SACRIFICING THEMSELVES FOR THEIR COUNTRY. THAT IS A BUNCH OF B.S. THEY ARE HELPING SUPPORT THE CORPORATE REGIME..WHY IS IT SO OBVIOUS TO SOME WHILE OTHERS ARE OBLIVIOUS...BECAUSE SOME USE AND TRUST THEIR INTUITION TO IDENTIFY THE PROPAGANDA AND SEE IT FOR THE LIES IT IS WHILE OTHERS ARE TRUSTING THE WRONG SOURCE AND BELIEVING THE PROPAGANDA  LIES TO BE TRUTH....THAT IS ALL...THAT IS HOW I SEE IT...

LESSONS IN A LIFETIME

HOW MANY LESSONS ARE LEARNED IN A LIFETIME

SHOULD YOU ATTEMPT TO KEEP TRACK

HOW MANY LIFETIMES DOES IT TAKE

TO STOP MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES

OVER AND OVER AGAIN

 

WHICH LESSONS DO YOU SHARE

IF YOU CARE TO GO THERE

IN HOPES TO HELP OTHERS

SOMETIMES ONE DISCOVERS

THAT'S NOT WHAT IT TAKES

 

WE MUST LEARN OUR OWN LESSONS

IN OUR OWN WAY

IT DOESN'T MATTER

WHAT OTHERS SAY

JUST WHAT WE RETAIN IN OUR BRAIN

 

IF YOU'RE GOOD AT GETTING

THE MORAL OF THE STORY

THEN THERE'S NO FORGETTING

THE LESSONS YOU CAN LEARN

WITHOUT GETTING BURNED

 
Author's Notes/Comments: 

WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. MISTAKES ARE LESSONS IF WE LEARN FROM THEM. IF NOT THEY  KEEP HAPPENING OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL WE LEARN...SO LEARN AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AS SOON AS YOU CAN TO AVOID THAT FATE.

WHY WANNA BE

EVER HOP A FREIGHT TRAIN

EVER HOP A FREIGHT TRAIN

ONLY IN MY MIND

WENT ON GREAT ADVENTURES

JUST TO PASS THE TIME

SEEMED LIKE FUN

TO JUST TAKE OFF

DESTINATION UNKNOWN

TRUSTING THAT I'D FIND MY WAY

LIVING LIFE FROM DAY TO DAY

OUT THERE ON MY OWN

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I KNOW I SAW HOBOS AND FREIGHT TRAINS ON TV IN EPISODES OF LASSIE AND OTHER STUFF...ALWAYS LOOKED LIKE FUN TO ME...

MATTER OF FACT

HI THERE SWEETIE

HOW WAS YOUR DAY

HAS ANYONE 

ASKED YOU THAT TODAY

IF THEY DID

HOW WOULD YOU REPLY

JUST SAY FINE

AND MAYBE LIE

SAME THING GOES

FOR HOW ARE YOU

WE JUST SAY FINE

YOU KNOW THAT'S TRUE

ANYTHING ELSE 

WOULD STUMP THEM SURE

ANY OTHER REPLY IS  FOUND OBSCURE

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO THAT

SO FINE IS SAID MATTER OF FACT

 
Author's Notes/Comments: 

I FIND THIS TO BE TRUE. IF YOU ARE NOT FINE AND ANSWER HONESTLY IT THROWS PEOPLE OFFGUARD AND THEY ARE NOT SURE HOW TO RESPOND IF THEY EVEN REALLY LISTEN TO YOUR REPLY OR JUST TUNE IT OUT...

CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT SO FAR

LIGHT COLORED HOODED FACES

ZOOMING IN AND OUT

SEEN IN MEDITATION

NOT SURE WHAT THEY'RE  ABOUT

THEY'RE SEEN NOT HEARD

I FIND THEM  ABSURD

IF ASKED WHO THEY ARE

OR WHAT THEY WANT

THEY DO NOT REPLY

YET THEY CHOOSE TO

CONTINUE TO HAUNT

DON'T KNOW THE REASON WHY

THEY'RE PEACEFUL AND CALM

AND MEAN NO HARM

SO DO NOT CAUSE DESPAIR

I JUST WANT TO KNOW

WHY THEY DON'T GO

I WONDER WHY THEY'RE THERE

I SEE THE SAME FACES REPEATEDLY

BUT DON'T KNOW WHO THEY ARE

I WONDER WHAT THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO MEAN

CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT SO FAR

 
Author's Notes/Comments: 

BEEN DOING RAISE YOUR VIBRATION .. KUNDALINI YOGA MEDITATION FOR AWHILE NOW AND THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR AWHILE NOW...I SEE THEM EYES CLOSED DURING MEDITATION BUT  ALSO EYES OPEN AT OTHER TIMES...THEY ONLY SEEM FAMILIAR FROM SEEING THE SAME FACES OVER AND OVER AGAIN FOR AWHILE NOW BUT NO IDEA WHO THEY ARE...NOT RECOGNIZABLE TO ME...IT IS A STRANGE PHENOMENON...I DON'T NOTICE COLOR JUST BLACK AND WHITE AND JUST SEE THE FACE CLEARLY IN THE HOOD AND TOP PART OF THE ROBE LIKE MAYBE CHEST HIGH...NOT VERY BIG LIKE THE PALM OF MY HAND ZOOMING IN AND OUT ALWAYS FACING ME... SOMETIMES ONE FACE MORPHS INTO ANOTHER AND THEN ANOTHER AND SOMETIMES IT IS A PROCESSION OF DIFFERENT FACES...BUT MOST RECENTLY MOSTLY THE MORPHING FACE LIKE IT CHANGES INTO THREE DIFFERENT FACES AND THE LAST FACE ZOOMS BACKWARDS THEN COMES BACK IN THE SAME ORDER AS BEFORE FIRST ONE FACE THEN ANOTHER AND THEN THE LAST ONE THAT ZOOMS BACKWARDS AGAIN...TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION...AT LEAST IN THIS CASE I THINK SO....

STOP WASTING TIME

EVERYONE IS DYING

FROM THE MOMENT THEY ARE BORN

WHY ARE SOME NOT TRYING

THE LIVING PART  BEFORE

THEY ARE ALL JUST  CRYING

OF WASTING TIME ONCE MORE

 

HOW MUCH TIME IS WASTED

BEFORE LIFE'S TRULY TASTED

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FEAST

BEFORE YOU ARE DECEASED

LIVE AND LEARN AND LAUGH AND PLAY

FOR ALL THIS WILL BE GONE SOMEDAY
