Security Systems

Your reputation
falsely sullied
cannot destroy you,
because the world knows better

Your child's candy
eaten by an adult
is the gift of a lesson
to be learned

Rent not paid
does not have to have a cost,
as you have wealth

Betrayal of your trust
needlessly and selfishly done
cannot hurt you,
for you too would tell the truth if asked

Losing serenity
so carefully built
is not God's theft
but your own

Your karma
is your payment and
it covers all the bills

Locks on your mind
Spiral stairs always
downward falling, falling
Dreaming tsunamis
drowning in the power
of an earthquake
Keys lost
Keys found
Muscles not used
throbbing with effort
tense with the climb
The top of the staircase
will never be reached
yet we ascend.

A rose is a rose is a rose until it becomes so red it spontaneously combusts, ignites like the outskirts of a sunset, flames with ecstacy emblazoned across the sky like that of a secret finally spoken, a door opened wide.
