Servant Leaders

monk-reading-book-for-poem

They write books

They read each other’s books

They read other’s books

They travel the world

They meditate

They inspire

They motivate

They transform lives

They entertain

They are the servant leaders

Holistically abundant

Challenge to Resilience

liam-scheff

There are those on the planet whose resilience is forever challenged

Always in mental turmoil synergy at bay

Under celebrated

The heavy passion for life with vision for positive and sustainable existence

They are the visionary and logical thinkers

Those who understand the great masters of the universe

And the authority of human existence

Those who see man’s self-destruction

Those who face frustration from mediocre minds

And the psychopaths 

While the herd remains in states of bliss

Reality buried deeply in hedonism and denial

Suffering unintended consequences through unconscious presence

Yet to be awaken

And the resilient forge ahead unremittingly

Even as the seasons fade into one

 

To Liam Scheff, seeker of truth, dedicated and relentless soul…

When Love Looks the Other Way

img_1615 The hopes the dreams the fantasy of romance

Perhaps searching for truth fades toward eternity

Life hurts deeply in loneliness even in laughter

Love friendship gratitude blessings beyond what others suffer

Severely stained within their own hidden world

The thoughts of detachment and the emptiness

Yet still seems to attract captive interest in wisdom shared

Romantic love and bonding eludes outside interest

Ambivalent desire for silent smooth death to save face

Passing into the unknown to null the void

Where does the strength of hope and strong faith store themselves

The hope and faith that escapes routinely

The mindset that not loved or lovable

In the way that love connects and displays itself in others

Holding hands embracing shared feelings mutual warm caring

Walking through life together in states of bliss

And the forgiving times of challenging compromise

Engaging in mutual togetherness

The joy and pleasure to life in partnership

Where are the feelings that might bring that same euphoria

Life giving sustained purposeful connection

The enrichment of intimacy sidestepped

Mornings evenings day in and day out

How does this escape an open heart so full of gratitude

Life perhaps what others fail to see

The cast of life that isn’t me
