A Free Man

Golden_Eagle_blk
1
i am a free man
1
i own no-one
1
no-one owns me
1
i am no-ones judge
1
but my own
1
i make my own rules
1
and i live by them:
1
to do no harm
1
when given a choice
1
to tell no lies
1
to myself
1
to never be the boss
1
of anybody else
1
to feel no guilt
1
if i am misunderstood
1
to always love
1
with all my heart

The Crown of Creation

1Isle of Bute
11111
I am the crown of creation,
1
A prince of every nation,
1
I speak in the tongue of angels,
1
Much to their consternation,
1
I dance between the stars at night,
1
And light the constellations,
1
I take my rest on mountains high,
1
At stratospheric elevations,
1
So I can reach and kiss the sky,
1
And delight in the sensation,
1
And always know the reason why,
1
I am the crown of creation.

The Voodoo Child

I am the Voodoo Child,

There really is no other,

I was born out in the wild,

I’m Mother Nature’s lover,

I am pitiless and free,

untamed like the wolf,

the wolf inside of me,

I travail the secret trails,

That lay between the stars,

And speak with the people,

of  Jupiter   and  Mars.

It all belongs to us

 stars

 

All there ever was,

And all there’ll ever be,

It all belongs to us,

Belongs to you and me,

And the beautiful thing is,

It’s absolutely free!

Every human being is inheritor to a vast legacy. To each one of us is bequeathed all the knowledge that our forbearers have left behind. Their art, philosophy – their very thoughts, all that makes humanity human. It’s up to the individual just to what extent they avail themselves of it – but we all do, we can’t avoid it – because it’s everywhere.

Wheat for the harvesting

 7th_sealHave you ever considered that we are just like wheat for the harvesting. We grow tall and golden ‘neath the summer sun until one day the reaper comes to harvest us. We are scythed down and threshed. All our memories and dreams, loves and hates, all we ever were; is simply discarded like chaff. But, what of the seed, the soul, if you will? Does it go ever onward on a journey through eternity, incarnation after incarnation? Does it return to the source, to the godhead, to heaven?

There is no answer to these questions. So people believe whatever makes them happiest. No harm in that. It’s comforting to think that you’ll live forever. In fact most people never think about death, until it strikes close to them, which it inevitably does. Then it can be a great comfort to believe that your loved one is somewhere they are happy. That they are not really dead.

I used to believe in these things too, that the universe was indeed just as we would wish it to be. I’m not a child any more. The universe is indifferent and death is final. I mourn the dead and celebrate their lives, I honour what they left behind. Now when I think of death I’m resolved to live every day of my life to the full, even the tormented ones. Our days are measured, we know not the number appointed us. Any day could be our last so avoid stuff that kills, and try to live it to the full. Live to have no regrets. When the harvest comes stand tall.

Remember Me

glen_lyon_01

Please remember me,
Not the way I am,
But the way I was,
When we began,

I was young and reckless then,
Not so fearful as I am now,
I’ll never be that way again,
I wouldn't know how,

I lost my faith,
I lost my hope,
I was a believer,
Now I’m a dope,

I was young and feckless then,
Not so lonely as I am now,
I’ll never be that way again,
i don't remember how,

I lost my light,
I lost my direction,
I was an achiever,
Now I’m a reflection,

i was young and restless then,
not so restless as i am now,
i'll never be at rest again,
i've forgotten how,

Please remember me,
If you ever do,
As someone who loves you,
Not just as someone -
That you once knew.

When?

aint_no_sunshine 


We two have loved before,

In times long gone,

Those lives have past,

But our love lives on,

Some things were meant to be,

And you were meant to be with me,

I can’t say just where or when,

But I know that we shall meet again,

Just one question leaves me vexed,

will it be in this life, or the next?

The Kiss






















68
I didn’t even know your name,

you broke my heart all the same,

after all this time it came to this;

that in our hours of stolen bliss,

you betrayed me with a kiss,

everything that you ever said,

echoes endlessly inside my head,

how much of it was true?

I only wish that I knew,

why did you cause such pain?

has all been some sordid game?

I can’t believe that’s true,

but then, I’m still in love with you.

Celestial Love


















Dry your tears and raise your eyes,
To see the stars above,
That whole celestial splendour,
Is driven on by love,
See Andromeda and Cancer,
Cygnus, Gemini and Lyra,
Ursula Major and Ursula Minor,
Look into the northern skies,
To see the Aurora Borealis,
Look within yourself my love,
To where the brightest star is,
Set your sights upon a star,
Set your mind to sojourn far,
And know the power that ignites the stars -
Lights the heavens and our hearts.

I’m a lover

 














I’m a lover,

I know what love is,

It turns your water into wine,

And your misery to bliss,

It can be frightening,

But you’ve got to take the risk,

Because you’re a lover,

And you know what love is.

Through the night and past the dawn

Steppenwolf is locked in his room,

With a needle and a spoon,

His journey has now begun,

He’s trying to reach oblivion,

It seems to him all he has left,

Is quietly reaching out for death,

Should she come in this painless hour,

Her mystery to unfold for him ,

Like the petals of some dark flower,

If she beckoned he would gladly follow on,

Through the night and past the dawn.

Extinct

Trex_dark


I’m a rare creature,

I’m beginning to think,

I’m so fucking rare,

I’m virtually extinct,

The pressures of survival,

Have brought me to the brink,

Soon there’ll be no trace of me,

I’ll have become the missing link.

Solitary Creature

                                                    


If there is a creature on this earth

as solitary, as singular,

as myself - it lives

on the dark floor

of the jungle,

and it has

stripes.




I’m an artist



















I’m an artist,

I know what art is,

I point and say,

‘that’s art,’

and it is,

I’m an artist,

I know what art is.

I Pray To…

I pray to, I know not who,

That they will look after you,

And after that, if they're free,

Could they keep an eye on me?



It’s Not So Black Today

Rays_01drk

It’s not so black today,
More a dirty shade of grey,
The sun came by to say,
Maybe things will be okay,
Lift up your heart, rejoice
Give your inner child a voice,
You’d think you would be glad,
After the dark days you’ve had,
Or is it really true;
That you live in the dark,
And the dark lives in you?

in my room




alone here in my room,

in unrelenting gloom,

this place of solitude,

has become a living tomb.

Lost



I'm lost!

So completely lost!

Which way do I go?

Does it matter anymore?

Dawn




Some cannot wait 
                                         until the dawn unfolds,

To feel her warming rays
                           and the promise that she holds,

Of life 
              and love
                                and a future blinding bright,

Within the domain
                                  of the children of the light,

But for me
                  the morning light 
                                              brings no pleasure,

No laughter,
                     no fun,
                                no golden days to treasure,

For I must face
                             each dawning day
                                                             on my own,

No friendship,
                          no love,
                                         so completely
                                                                    alone,
For I have become 
                                         a creature of the night,
                       
                 And by my nature
                                                     abhor the light.

Even Our Dreams We Borrow



















when all you believe turns out to be lies,
and all you love, a thin disguise,
then you come to realise,
that there are no lasting ties,
and even our dreams we borrow,
and if we ever find,
any peace of mind,
it's sure to be gone tomorrow.

If you had a wish...



Do you wish you had a wish?

Is there someone that you miss?

Someone you would like to kiss?

Or maybe steal from?



Fugue



A long depressive fugue,

Will leave you in the mood,

To quaff a few libations,

And act a little lewd.

the bad news bear




watch out for the bad news bear

he could turn up anywhere

he’s very tricky – he don’t play fair

that sneaky, snidey bad news bear

the bad news bear sows poisoned seeds

on fear and insecurity he ravenously feeds

the bad news bear likes to whisper in your ear

to tell you things that you do not want to hear

the bad news bear never brings any cheer

the bad news bear is always near

On The Loose



Steppenwolf is on the loose,

He has a rope, he's making a noose,

No chance in hell he'll call a truce,

He's in the street yelling abuse,

Steppenwolf runs on electric juice.



Steppenwolf has got a gun,

He says he'll murder everyone,

He says things like that just for fun,

Says that his death has just begun,

Why should he be the only one?

Opt For Suicide!





When you've got nowhere left to hide,

You could always opt for suicide,

Let me tell you this my friend,

Death will find you in the end,

No matter where you try to hide,

He'll be standing at your side,

No point in trying to pretend,

You haven't got a living friend,

You've got nowhere left to hide,

So simply opt for suicide!


Everybody Knows This






They say he has psychosis,

Smelly feet and halitosis,

He's only half a human being,

But everybody knows this.

Grim Comfort


Steppenwolf's a lonely man,

Who tries to do the best he can,

To keep himself from going insane,

And putting a bullet in his brain,

Steppenwolf's a cunning man,

Who's got himself an exit plan,

He intends to run one day,

From the life he threw away,

One grim comfort he has found,

Is that he'll soon be underground.
