Fear Not!

To me it seems as though
The more days that go by,
The older that I get,
I seem to question everything
More and more until I find myself doing nothing but.

Why all the questions?
Whats with the worries that weigh this life down?
It's as if I'm pouring the cement
Into my own shoes hoping that the water
Is only neck deep.

But to hope for such a thing is madness.
Even if the water is only as you wish
You will end up looking like a fool,
Stuck to the bottom of this
Pathetic stream
For all to see.

This is why I must practice to simply just be.

This time around I'll refuse to wear shoes
And my only worry will be
When will the cow finally eat the moon?
Because surely he is out there.
And surely I am stuck dreaming.

Fear not oh cow!
You will be fed.
You shall forever graze.
Though content on one
Single blade.

There is no destination
It's all right here

"What is Life?"
You say.
"What is death?"
You whisper.
"What do they mean?"
You wonder.

I tell you this.
Life is death.
Death is life.
So now that you know,
Please fear not!
And you shall forever graze.

Nothing More Than Anything Else

What does it mean to be nothing more
Than anything else?
How does it feel?
This isn’t an attempt to explain
But by the end
I hope you understand
Because it’s not where
But how
So lets begin again.

What does it mean to be nothing?
More than anything else.

Take a look around you
Tell me
What is it that you see?
Close your eyes
Open them again
Tell me
What is it that you see?

Never fail to find beauty
In what you already know
And never deny the beauty
Of what you may not.

Man made
Nature made
There is no difference
So why look outside yourself?
You are man and nature
For certainly nature is man.

So this is what its like
To be nothing more than anything else
Because when you take a second look
It is something more
Than what you’ve found.
