Consideration

Gary's screen shot

Consideration

Careful consideration
Before you speak
Think about your words
before they leak

Words often wound
when they are darts
Pointed opinions
from cold hearts
Consideration matters
Whenever you speak
Sarcasm. Negativity.
Symptoms of the weak

A cliché is a cliché
from overuse
Often just a sad,
lame excuse
Little consideration
in what you say
Languid. Thoughtless
 The lazy way

Careful consideration
Reason before the rhyme
Consider it considerate
to take the time

 

 Careful consideration
Ideally face to face
In real time
at the same place

On the same level
With due respect
The least to ask
Everything to expect
Being considerate
by not talking down
No pedestal. No pretense.
 No shiny crown

Talking voice to voice
The clearest way
On the same level
the same day
Consider a text
as the last resort
Muted. Misunderstood.
Misguided retort

Careful consideration
Ridiculous nor sublime
Consider it considerate
to take the time

Support

SUPPORT

I look to my left
and I see
Look to my right
and I see
The people I love
here beside me…

Your support is always there
More than mere words can really say
With whatever comes, whatever may
With every challenge on any day
Your support comes my way
And you are there

Your honesty opens my eyes
You tell me exactly how it is
Through distraction, I am remiss
Through times as complex as this
Support slides in with a reminder or a kiss
And you open my eyes

Your laughter brings me back
Daughters who make life fun
Despite the race, I’ll never run
Despite the clouds I see your sun
Support slides in two for one
And you bring me back

Your love holds me up
Keeps me on level ground
Whenever I’m lost, I am found
Whenever doubt comes around
Support slides in without a sound
And you hold me up

Your support is everything to me
This family is my wall
With all together, will never fall
With all for one and one for all
Your support is for the long haul
And it’s everything to me

It is unwavering
and it lights my way

With whatever comes
and whatever may

What my mere words
can barely say…


But I will always try.

Paper and pen for SURE

Level

Level

An intuitive need to get it out.
To spill my words with self abandon.
To exercise the essence of my inner worth.

Waking up to something very real…
bringing life to all that I feel.


An outpouring of the purest kind.
The essence of the thoughts I’ve slept with.
The vibrant reflection of my heart and soul.

Morning coffee accompanied inspiration…
chasing images of sense and sensation.


A natural progression within hind sight.

Taking the path to pencil and paper.
Taking my being to that next level.

Starting a new day with full mind…

seizing the spirit of a life rewind.


A person or a place that feeds my urges.

From conversation to the news that shapes.
From the recesses of opinions and influence.

Gathering clear images from far and near…

capturing the moments that brought me here.


An intuitive avenue to getting it all down.

The clearest way to reflect on my purest soul.
The natural progression to life’s level ground.

Reaching out for tomorrow as I go to bed…

hoping that todays like these lie straight ahead.
