Spread Love

from Phantom Loose Leaves by Vida Killz



this cold makes me ponder
on minutes i can't capture
so many dying daily
while we yearn to just live
first world problems
no wifi & no fridge
I want to dig into another paradigm
feed all of these kids
from that "I don't know what hunger pains are just know that I have them."
desire to not desire
til i can't desire no more
study the ancient teachings
never forget where I lived
so cold in these winters
it would lead your patience astray
cracked windows to grow under
stores full of groceries just rotting away
water bottles for payment
when a large portion of the world
can't even pay rent
worried about my hubcaps not staying on
when there's kids who don't even have shoes on
got this want
next is the steps
summer to autumn
til it's summer again

spread love
spread light
share your gifts
share your sight

forgive me if I slip up
it's just the God in me
perfectly imperfect
created as an image
maintained thru my bitchin'
made the hall of fame
for less known but most heart centered
think my ego won't catch up with me
so I seek this art
sit in bars sipping water
so shy he said
I just see your intents
silent as I hesitate
bleed these poetics
it's a nuisance
that my noose was bent
here I still am
until I am not
