Evolved

.

“All religion,

my friend,

is simply evolved

out of fraud, fear,

greed, imagination,

and poetry.”

.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

vision

unreal thoughts

vivid mental picture

things that don’t exist

imagination

nature’s true colors

camouflage

can you see me now

Poem:

.

is there another world parallel to our own
what some have called the twilight zone

where everything is opposite, black or white
where the darkest dark becomes the bright

no good or evil, just a calm
ethereal music accompanying a psalm

everything positive, no negatives allowed
nine is the number assigned to every cloud

a surreal place that is not a dream
all meals end with peaches and cream

every soul is born with a red heart
all other features are a la carte

feelings that do not include fear and hate
there is no crooked, only straight

could we live in both worlds at the same time
in a place where there would be no crime

a place where speech writers would not take sides
where politicians don’t change with the tides

as long as there are egos it will not happen
but there is no reason that we cannot imagine

Today, think love, peace and prosperity
allow every motive to be benefit charity

Some Day

“Some day

you will be

old enough

to start reading

fairy tales again.”

hiccup

rough bump

unplanned side trip

off the straight course

setback

beautiful image

Creator’s best camouflage

colors few can see

Poem:

.

quiet the noisy mind
try to become a member of human kind
ignore the noises made by the resident rodent
running on a squeaky wheel every moment

forget the echoes of people putting you down
you look like a scary sad sack clown
you’re nothing but a useless bum
slimy and smelly like pond scum

hear it often enough and you start to believe
you have become your mother-in-laws pet peeve
negativity lives in that perverted warped brain
lucid times when you think you’re going insane

thinking contorted by mind altering drugs
itchy, crawlies caused by giant bed bugs
been there, done that, wear the tie dyed shirt
the lucky become a spiritual convert

learn to think of others, not just yourself
guidance from above leads to healthy self-help
praying to your God with a contrite heart
this is always a good way to start
