I CHOOSE NOT TOO
I choose not to cry when you try too put tears in my eyes,
I choose not to hurt when you are less than a person.
I will not be sad and choose not too when you give up all you have,
I choose not to be always mad just because you are a foolish man.
I choose not to be at the mercy of this land or what I don’t have,
I choose not to be a prisoner of my own fears and disabilities,
I choose not to be a most terrible me or the bad that can be.
WHAT’S THE BEST THING
ABOUT CHOCOLATE CAKE?
It may be round, it may be square,
Dark and delicious, so who really cares.
The face it shows is not all that this thing is about,
Not sure by looking at it if one should let loose and dig in.
What’s the best thing about chocolate cake?
Well, look beyond what the mask is showing.
Get to the inside, dig in deep too another sweet,
Something hidden, soft, almost emotional when you find it.
Savor this incredible treasure, enjoy what it brings to you,
A facade, something that doesn’t tell the whole story.
In the end satisfied at that which has been discovered,
Tasted, enjoyed, and learned a little more about.

A zen master, it’s a way of life, a choice to be,
Peace and harmony come together as one.
It is a man whom can be called many names and
Just smile and keep on walking,
The sky is up high, the ground beneath my feet.
I have absolute peace,
There is a difference between illusion and reality.
False scenes created from ones own thoughts,
Zen is a togetherness of ones body and mind.
This school of Buddhism was created in China, sixth century,
A total state of focus, i know who i am, that i am, awake and where i am.
