why you wanna fly?

tortion in your look, something has occurred
is it possible that in this judgment we have erred?
is there something gently disguised by the twinkle in your eyes,
and do we mispeak by asking clearly to hear about your week?

it's not a problem especially and we don't mean to pry,
but the clenching stress and twitch might yet reveal the lie.
don't be alarmed by this momentary aberration
it's just something to note while passing through the station.

something to note about the psyche or consciousness
in this child that walks so bravely and silently among us.
i don't have much to go on to identify the issue
that belies the remarkable softness as it yields its inner tissue.

a melting implies that we are finally letting go of shape
while holding the gentle infant within the visionary's scape.
honor comes with engineered development of presence
an opportunity for thoroughbred to open up to essence.

in spite of all i might like to think to the contrary in the moment, what i recognize and feel so much gratitude for is that i can let go of all that "worry". the need to think about how things will work out, whether or not all the details will be taken care of, when you think about, the humor is blatant that i might actually have any level of control about those kinds of things. i wonder, did the "mighty casey" think it was a good thing when that third strike cleared home plate?
So why is this good?
the best thing i can say about that right now is that it relieves my poor little struggling ego from the responsibility of taking care of everything in the entire world that crosses my path at any level. Can you see how that is good? and more importantly--i can see and feel and breathe why letting go of that kind of wasted brain focus, opens my senses to so many more ways to learn things, to experience moments and to love life! it's a wonder we never hear the story of "mighty casey" the brainsurgeon, homeroom school teacher or amazing dad...these are the powerful stories that have a way of working themselves out and making great impact in the lives of so many that are entirely outside of our control. with that in mind, i say it's time to
