The Way Up



Find your way up.

Even if it does not take you

In straight line

Or all the way to


Find your way up.

Through twist and turns

Through tears and woe

Through long forsaken roads

Of endless


Find your way up.

Through dark pre-dawn

Through moonlit nights

Through the innumerous



Find your way up.

Reach deep

Climb high

Into yourself

Into the core

Of heart

And spirit




For The Daily Post


In this time of repeated violence, I find solace in the truths that do not fade, for they hold more substance than fleeting words, shoulder shrugs, denials, numbness, pretense, or calls for more violence as a ‘solution’ for the inordinate violence that’s already there.

Truths remain. Even in the face of the most urgent attempts to smother it.

In this time of sorrow and frustration, I am reminded:

“There is no way to peace.

Peace is the way.”

                                             (A. J. Muste)


“The person who says it cannot be done

should not interrupt the person doing it…”

                                                  (Chinese Proverb)
