Contrived to lead us to believe
we can buy happiness for cash
they paste their messages to deceive
with glitter, flamboyance and flash.
But under the colored web they weave
is emptiness and useless trash.

For happiness cannot be bought
it comes from selflessly giving.
In colored webs do not be caught.
Rather give, and keep on living!

Living this adventure we journey toward its end,
experiencing pieces of a puzzle we don't fully comprehend.

The hues of our emotion paint a picture of our past,
as we hurtle toward a destiny that is not meant to last.

Youth a canvas all in white, not knowing what awaits,
feel caresses of a brush that which we know as fate.

Love so very true in reds, that beat within our heart,
shadows black take form as hate, which tears the soul apart.

Greens of joy and happiness, lush grass beyond compare,
sadness, shrouded depths of blue, the waters of despair.

Yellow screams of agony and pain which we endure.
Guilt and shame are shades of grey, that rattles to the core

Earthy brown desires are that for which we lust,
the loss of which comes with age, like chrome begins to rust.

The image changing constantly as time plods slowly on,
taking shape in many forms, as the twilight replaces dawn.

We look into a mirror for the answers which we seek,
but we find no consolation as our eyes grow dim and weak.

The final touches on a painting created with much love,
as we realize that the destination is the gallery above...

Above the chaos Stillness waits for us
to merge with her and feel our inner peace.
She's there, I promise, though we fight and fuss
and all our troubles seem to never cease.
We have to find our way to her within
to share the peace we should not be without.
So take the time to rise above the din
and learn what peace is truly all about.

Try to stretch your mind to new heights
to find the wonders inside and out
keep trying, keep going, keep swimming,
Like Dora said.
Let it all in
Let it all out

Out to visit the ocean
Contemplating life
The journey and the strife
Searching for deeper meaning
Reasons for life.

Life of an elephant that cannot fly
sits and ponders on a bench and wonders why

Why sit and cry the holidays away
Get up and escape the day
Travel far from where you sadly sit
Enjoy a free, life lit.

Lit up the yule log
Lit up your pipe
Lit up the room
and the chestnuts are ripe.
Roasting on the fire
warming up our hearts
warming up everyone
as the music just starts...

Starts again reverse backward too
Nothing good happens to you
When trapped in a misery loop
Like a chicken - fly the coop
Search away is far better
Don't forget - bring a sweater :)

Sweater on and buttoned up
I'm ready for to fly
Beyond a chicken's ability
Beyond and up and up,
Something good must surely be
there to light my heart
Reverse backward is forward
back again to start

start anew only to see
yet once again
the chicken is me
though time will tell
as they like to say
bump heads with the sun
and burn off your face

Face the music and dance along
Life is a party, life is a song.
Reach out your hand and ask her to dance
Or sit on the side and dream of romance.
Which do you choose, to dance or to sit
Give dancing a try, like a bird you can fly,
A chicken's a bird, it might seem absurd,
But if it stretches its wings, it can do anything
