Prayer may carry you through a crisis, but it will prevent nary a crisis.

In poetry, rumination on 20131009 at 21:03

《the way》
dear little one,
the world is yours.
the world was yours
even before you belonged
to it.
it was, is, and will be
your redemption as often
as it will be your nemesis.
do not be afraid, for fear
will not carry your burdens
nor will it shelter you
from the elements.
have hope as much as will
allow triumph
over the ills of present,
but none so much that
you deceive yourself
of the realities of the future
or the consequences of the past.
days of sorrow will weave
a tight knit alongside joy,
neither with warning
nor with limitation.
you shall persist because
you know of nothing else,
not only because you will it.
for as a mortal, possibility
is as finite only as is time.
what tomorrow will bring you,
yesterday has already taken
away, with a fluidity that
surprises with subtlety.
you will love and hurt,
feel pain and transfer pain.
you will always forgive
because the alternative
is no alternative.
fairness and justice
will oft be at odds
with one another and for you.
you will not always deserve
your destiny, but you will
decide not to deny it.
for tonight, the sun sets low,
but tomorrow, high,
high shall the sun rise up.
oh, little one, until tomorrow,
good night.

In aphorism, poetry, proverb, rumination on 20120427 at 23:21

The fool seek dominance, the wise seek balance.

The fool make noise, the wise make music.

Art is unnecessary, and that is precisely what makes it necessary.

Music is a gift that we can give to or deny our children.

With fervor is there urgency in purpose.

Musicians are magicians.

A will is the wishes of the living respected by the living once the living days have passed on.

Music is the sound that the heart makes between beats.

But with the presence of a void does a note resonate, like the oxygen that fuels a flame.

The art of management is to exploit strength and mitigate weakness.

Exercise the metamuscle: think about your thinking.

《the war within》
War is something you
create
carry
kill
within your heart.

In aphorism, poetry, proverb on 20120215 at 23:54

Hope can ease your burden, but only you can carry your load.

For my news, I read the funnies. For my fun, I read the news.

Ask not a fish for the forecasted precipitation.

A fish’s forecast is cast.

To be imitated is to have inspired.

Who suprastands another, awaits a lesson to befall.

《prayer》
Could I want, what more
Than to realize the error in my ways
I pray it come before
the end of my days.

《unequivocal》
vanity = beauty + pride
pride = vanity – beauty
beauty = vanity – pride

《conflicted》
he said he didn’t like conflict.
i said i didn’t understand-
passive aggressive behavior
is more conflict than i could stand.

In aphorism, proverb on 20101126 at 13:33

A fool listens with armor and speaks with bullets to an enemy perceived behind blinders.

Camouflage conceals cowardice; compassion reveals courage.

The fool carry a basket to fill; the wise carry a basket to empty.

The nimble mind can do more with clumsy hands than nimble hands can ever do with a clumsy mind.

A tree buries its roots in dirt, but never its trunk.

A weed will wind its way.

A brighter sun makes not a flower taller.

A step is part reach -and part push.

20101003

In aphorism, proverb on 20101003 at 17:33

Apathetic in the present is oblivious of the past and ignorant of the future.

The trunk of the tree supports the crown.

The period makes the sentence.

Carry your heart above your wallet.

The door hangs on a hinge and locks with a key.

In aphorism, proverb on 20100907 at 23:33

The earth escapes not the cloud’s reach; if not its raindrop to fall, then ever its shadow to cast.

The wind carries the dusts of the earth, and so, moves mountains.

20100128

In aphorism, proverb, rumination on 20100128 at 13:32

Tho’ another’s burden we might carry on our back, with clenched hands do we carry our own.

Every person holds a different memory; every nation writes a different history.

20091003

In aphorism, proverb on 20091003 at 11:23

Regret only the error never made; those made make an excellent teacher.

A teacher is not one who gives us knowledge, but one who challenges us to receive knowledge.

Knowledge ought be sought, gained, even shared, but never kept.

The knowledge kept is an ignorance carried to the grave.

In aphorism, proverb on 20081002 at 00:44

Who will not sow a seedling will never prune a tree.

Only a fool carries the weight of the water that is needed to quench the thirst of one foolish to carry such a weight.

Be weary to wear blinders that will get you there faster but without knowing how.
