~ The Pendulum ~

My feelings and thoughts
Are like a pendulum
Sometimes I am sure of what I feel
Then when I least expect it something happens
Doubt enters my mind
Making my thoughts full of fear
For I have been there before
I don’t want to go again

The pendulum swings making me unsure
Ever so slightly thoughts enter my mind
Who are you and what do you want from life
Will our desires clash and make life miserable

One day I feel I know a good and loving man
Then you will get angry and scare me again
So the pendulum swings to and fro
Sometimes making my heart hurt so
For I know what pain is like
Deep within were no one can see
How easily threatened I can be
From the past to the future

The pendulum slowly swings
Mixing all the emotions of the times
You have shared with others before me
For I have not known but one
His pendulum swung wildly
Back and forth changing his moods
I suffered for his insecurities
The ability to compete in his world
So I paid the price with pain
Over and over again
And the pendulum swung

~ When Time Has Ended ~

Why feel proud of the world which is temporary
what if all is lost and gone
and leaving you

What if the time stopped
and you do not realize
is there a way for you
to return to repeat the past

The world is filled with ornaments
anything and everything imaginable
will return to Him

When the time has called
the true friend is only charity
when the time has stopped
true friend left is only ... silence

~ Beauty ~

May all beings be filled with joy and peace.
May all beings everywhere, the strong and the weak,
The great and the small, the mean and the powerful,
The short and the long, the subtle and the gross:
May all beings everywhere, seen and unseen,
Dwelling far off or nearby, being or waiting to become:
May all be filled with lasting joy.

Let no one deceive another,
Let no one anywhere despise another,
Let no one out of anger or resentment
Wish suffering on anyone at all.
Just as a mother with her own life
Protects her child, her only child, from harm,
So within yourself
Let grow a boundless love for all creatures.

Let our love flow outward through the universe,
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.
Then as we stand or walk, sit or lie down,
As long as we are awake,
Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
Our life will bring heaven to earth.
