Paul Simon: A simple desultory philippic

Paul Simon - The Only Living Boy in New York

Paul Simon - The Sound Of Silence

Hello Darkness my old friend...

Johnny Cash - One (U2 Cover - With Lyrics)

Did I dissappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth,
You act like you never had love,
and you want me to go without...

Too late, tonight to drag the past out into the night,
We're one but we're not the same..we get to ..
Carry each other,
Carry each other...


Hope was so cute
She was small
She brought smiles
She had a home.
Hope was a joy

Life got busy
Hope masticated
Hope got a cage
Enthusiasm waned
There were other things to do
Hope got shuffled aside.

Brought in to deal with other problems
And she just added to the problem.

She was neglected
She was kicked
She was mistreated
She was lost
She was found
She was given away
Taken to a place where she could be with more hope
Hopefully, life was better
Hope got sick
Hope died.

Acquiescent Heart

I have an acquiescent heart
Its tenderness is as delicate as a flower
Its strength is as tough as a mighty warrior
My heart is protected by God
He alone rebuilds it after it’s been broken
He alone directs my love,
For if not for him,
I would have no heart.

My heart goes to places unknown
Places that I never even dreamed;
Impossible places to my lowly eyes,
But places that are my destiny in life.

My heart loves where it loves,
To varying degrees but always,
With love.

My heart is able to give love unconditionally,
Without regard for a return and upon the need,
My unconditional love will always be with you,
Even if the physical reality is never meant to be.

Reality creates darkness,
That creates blindness,
That creates the place,
Where you can no longer see,
Which creates the iniquity,
Where you cannot feel my love.

My heart breaks but will go on,
My heart will because I am eternal,
When you come out of this darkness,
You will see, that my love was always meant to be.

My acquiescent heart,
My most tender bud,
The root of my soul,
You are my love.

Merkabah, The Chariot of Ascension

Desiderata - Translation

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember
What peace can be found in silence.
As soon as possible, without surrender,
on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant, they too have their story.
Dodge loud and aggressive persons,
because they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you will become
vain and bitter;
there will always be people
larger and smaller than you.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career
however humble,
it is a real treasure
in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business
for the world is full of trickery
But let this not blind you
to what virtue there.
There are many people who strive
for high ideals.
Life is full of heroism.
Be honest with yourself,
Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
because in the midst of all aridity and disenchantment
is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit
to shield you in sudden misfortune.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe.
No less than the trees and the stars
have a right to exist.
And it is clear to you or not
doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God
whatever you conceive Him
And whatever your labors and aspirations, keep peace with your soul
in the noisy confusion of life.
With all its falseness, their pain and broken dreams, the world is still beautiful.
Be careful, strive to be happy!

Lion Heart - I really like this one.

Lion heart
Though I’ve never met a lion, I’ve felt him in my heart, his strength, his courage, even his bare feet on the jungle floor.

Though I’ve never met a lion, I’ve smelled the odor of his prey, while he hunts, my eyes have glanced his next meal, I’ve saddled his back in his hundred mile per hour chase to satisfy his hunger.

Even though I’ve never met a lion, my ego has peaked knowing I’m king, caring and protecting my pride, loving my people all as #1, strengthening the roar of my daughters and sons.

Although I haven’t met a lion, my mind knows lying in the shade of a tree, brings us both at peace as a silent brook.

If I were to ever met a lion, I would stare into his eyes, for that would be a window into my soul.

From mountain tops I’ll be proud to say I'M LION HEART>
