Quiet Spaces

When I know someone suffers
My eyes get wet
When I see a wrong
I need to try to make it right

When a good line crosses my mind
I need to write
I'd rather love than fight
And for the first time in my life
I'm fine alone
I'm in my zone

All of my mind
That's mine to control
Feels sublime
Most of the time

I don't seek my worth
In anyone else's eyes
My soul flies
And my dreams travel
Nothing unravels
That shouldn't
If I could die tonight
I wouldn't

I want to live
To see the final sunset
Remember all the people I've met
Feel regrets become fond memories
Feel comfort grow out of dis-ease
Feed my brain
To ease chronic pain

Crazy enough to survive
Grateful to be alive
Especially in the turbulent moments
If you want to know about me
Listen to how I speak
Feel my heartbeat
I think you'll find peace
Enough even for you
I am life, love, and truth
At least that's what I intend

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
