Without Reservations

So, there I was in the yellow room,

with all my fellow actors and actresses

and we are getting changed.

Men, women all in the same room

switching out of clothes and into new ones

No filter no reservations

just the gig.

I reminded me again how distorted

our concept of the human body is,

outside the safety of that changing room.

 

Where there is openness and upholding

of mutual respect and freedom,

when everyone is on the same page,

then we can coexist freely together.

When we hold back,

become a spectator,

shame our bodies and those of others,

then odd things start to happen.

The heart sours,

becomes cold and twisted.

Rather than opening like a tea blossom

steeped a nice hot cup of water,

it shrivels like an apple

deprived of moisture.

 

I ponder on these things I venture onstage,

and wish for a day when we are able to offer ourselves

without reservation, emotionally physically mentally and spiritually

to one another again.

 

 

 

The Heartbeats of My Existence

God in the silence,

of the silence,

let my breathe be Yours,

Your Nemphesh, Your Spirit

Your holy wind.

When I leave this place of self-induced isolation

let me go and breathe on others,

new life hope and opportunities for relationship

deeper than they have ever known,

let them see You through me,

so much so that I disappear

You are good, o Rock of My Soul

Your life love and glory

are the very heartbeats

of my perpetual existence.

Sheep and Goats

Judas and Peter betrayed God,

yet Peter kept going.

Not only that, but he was given the keys to heaven.

See the measure of our faith is not

whether or not we fail.

I mean, we all fail

It’s whether or not we’re willing to get over ourselves

and look to God

in spite of it that separates the sheep from the goats.

Peace, Brother!

People fight, they do

it’s part of life

but it doesn’t have to define us

We fight today, we make up tomorrow

We fight not to divide but to wake up the senses,

we want peace to win

 

There’s a time to clench fists

and a time to let go

Me? I’ve lost all the sensation down there

The blood vessels are too restricted

 

So, I’m letting go

Let’s shake hands

Peace brother,

God be with you!
