Written at the last new moon. Submitted to the full moon. May All receive abundance and peace.
Would you rather have multiple personalities or multiple identity crises?
Multiple faces or a contradictory reputation for your just one?
Willingly give everyone what they need or take everyone for what they have?
Fight the light to victory or sit in darkness comfortably?
Battle for respect or keep your chin high above your neck?
Exist in a dream or manifest a belief?
Love to be loved or love because you love?
Save others for accolades or witness and hold another’s best new day and then stay?
Would you rather be misunderstood or transparent based on what the viewer needs as your look?
Be a warm sip of comfort or a bitter octane shot?
Wouldn’t you rather be everything you are as it appears and leave the world to boo or cheer knowing from core your words and actions are sincere and clear?
I hope your choice does not include fear.
One mind, several tracks, four valves, one beat, two eyes, endless trajectories
Sole breath as far as your lungs can stretch.
You’ve made your choices now ask yourself
Do they matter to mute voices?
Can you hear your Soul?
Gift with no open bag
Sit illuminated by ages of past
Greet at full love
Introduce your religion.
Pinch yourself constantly as a push towards a finish
Love as is needed
Include yourself in receiving
Care for the person not their gratitude
Allow another’s multiple existences to care for you
Individually you see One
Each One is a dual.
Learned to master the duel
Play nobody’s fool
Make no one your fool.
Be as you are
Continue your carve
Master piecing yourself.
I’m just asking.
