Left for Last

Intro: I really tried to create imagery within this rather somber piece. I hope I succeeded…

Another night…
Stars so bright…
Let the souls count one by one…
For when all is done…
My turn shall be upon…

However I’m no star…
Less than a ball of gaseous light-giving massess…
A black dwarf…
Small in matters of fellow man…
Cold…
Left for the very end…

Part 2
Ionic…

The idea of giving has its own wisdoms, whose parts are unified under the thought that all human life has the right to live…So we choose to give and others receive in this never ending symphony…This belief in giving to those who need…
Bring peace to conflict through honest means by defying any violent deeds…
For when a soul is scathed by hate, the bonds begin to decay…
A chain reaction begins…The poisonous product of society’s sins is released…
Why do we take…?

I pray…
Cure the imbalance…And bring peace…By giving…
Look closely…These atoms that make up the very fiber of our being…Show us that through all the chaos, peace can be achieved…By giving what you may think is rightfully yours…You will support something amazing…A human life…It’s written into our DNA…These bonds that never cease to amaze…Don’t let this trait go to waste…Give to those who have less…You will be amazed at what an act of kindness can beget…I can’t help but imagine the smiles…It warms my heart to know that the start of peace often begins with an act of kindness…
Please give…

Intro:
The atomic bonds:
Ionic –> Giving
Covalent –> Sharing
Many more variants…

I find that the basic chemical bonds we have discovered have qualities that can be personified through our collective humanity. Something inherent in each and everyone of us…The fact that we do care for one another. It’s also true the idea of giving is analagous to taking. Sharing can be analgous to “owning” as in dictating the terms. Too often we see these relationships twist and turn…I wonder if we could all take a step back and just take a look at trying to see the other person’s point of view. The difference between us and these chemical bonds is that we can overcome these varying polarities, the non-conduciveness; the supposed natural repulsion that is falsely fed to us. We can overcome it all…

Covalent…
The idea has its own wisdoms…
Whose parts are unified under the thought…
That all human life has the right to live…
The strongest societal bonds known are those shared between kin…
But is blood what underlies this strength..?
Kinship…
What about friendship…?

Eternal message…
Carried by this universal essence…
Love is love…
Remember…We’re all made from the same atoms..
Same capacity for compassion…
Harmony…
Achieved just by being…
Our capacity to go beyond these umbilical strings…
Bring forth love in forever changing systems…

Luminaries

I feel Martin Luther King Jr. was a luminary…

Silent Scholar

“Luminaries”

Spirits…
People…
Bodies…
Lights…

The power of light…
Shining through all the darkness…

Buried barely beneath the fairy tales…
Ships sail through “gale force” winds with only one vision…
Spread light to all places of blight…
Rarely ever is a course defined…But the inner light inside guides the mind…

Hidden between the lines of history were these visionaries…
The luminaries…
The shunned ones who saw society had done wrong…
And tried to remedy the flaws…
Made enemies with the “pawns”…
Got caust for the righteous cause…
Distraught over the loss of the common clause that states all life is precious…
However insipid beliefs breed grief all too readily…
When you’re told not to hope or dream…
It takes great courage to break through this darkness…
Prove you’re just as important being as any other could be…

Intro: A tribute to those who dream…

Sky…
Beams of light dot the night sky…
As we focus our eyes on these beams of light…
What do we see?
Some see a guide…To paths known and unknown…Paths lost through time…Only to be discovered again through a new set of eyes (new generation)…
Some see atomic signs…Literal chemical components combine to produce a light that shines upon the human mind…nurturing thoughts on the meanings of life…
Some see life itself…Sisters of the sun…Life giving similar ones who watch over us as the sun sleeps…And keep the moon at peace as we wait for the sun to creep…
Till then we dream…
