time to heal


there’s heart burning in the streets
hate and love and world peace
i’m sickened churned and undeceived
what humans do for a little greed
how much class comes out the door
when their sorry arses are back up
against a cash dinosaur
for today for just a while
I will take off with me
for just a while I need
to pretend I won’t bring back to life she
who burns the world in sympathy
who lives in blood and lives in me
for just a while I need
to fall back in love with me


It was Leonard Cohen who sang – “Love is not a victory march it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah”

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. I hope that I shall never see
    a Valentine as big as me;
    For if I do I must decide
    to rhyme it well, or run and hide.

    And if that valentine don’t rhyme,
    Momma’s gonna get you a mocking bird.

    ~MM – Oh pish tosh :)! Thanks Bunk Strutts!!

  2. Awesome words! We all need to take time for such reflection. . . as the world seems to be becoming wickeder. . . lest we end up being overcome and integrated in the world with such swiftness and illusion that we risk loosing our own identity.

    Peace, Light and Love. . .
