Goodness Ocean

I take my leave from those who gaze, idly
Or avert their eyes, altogether

Onward, Ho! To teach!
To share air — and indeed, to breathe!

For I can only learn and grow
Alongside those who will take their turn
Do their worst, and make such noise

To right the wrongs with waves of change
As the Goodness Ocean must

Ocean Behind

Goodbye last chance to dance
Again

Saved us

If only for a time
Some heartache
Where, were there a promise
Who’d have forgiven us?

Not us

Again
I wish we’d have danced

Onward Artist

Put it all out there

Graffiti the walls of all the world with all the goodness you can possibly stuff into your every carbon footprint

Yes, your every breath

Send it marching onward, channeled outward

With unabashed hope

With unrealistic expectation, yet with none at all

Believe some force shall, some being must

Carry it all straightaway

To the doorstep, that heart of the other

Knock it will, but know

There may be no answer

But the walls, the world, the carbon, that doorstep

That heart

Needed your work nonetheless

So you remain the same
