LA BAS
(6/18/10)


just
a slight lapse
in the middle
of an ordinary day
and sanity
seems
lost

falling
grasping
screaming
all the way
to the
bottom

a new
world
awaits
quite beyond
the normal
boundaries
of reason

learn
the rules
quickly

accept
all as fact
and adapt

make
decisions
based upon
what is sensed
in the moment
trying not
to fit
apparent fantasy
into preconceived
notions
of yesterday's
reality

take
responsibility
for unknown roles
offered
and rely
upon natural ability
to improvise
beyond
previous
limitations

have
confidence
when all control
has been lost
to create
proper actions
that provide
solutions
where none
could be perceived
before

move
forward

press
on

never
stop

make
the best
decisions
possible
and let
the difficulties
resolve
of their own
accord

once
the strange land
has been
overcome
a choice
will be offered
whether to
remain
or return

always
go back
to the
beginning
for that
is where
the future
lies

the trip
home
will be
as a dream
an easy journey
floating up
forever free
of the weights
that first
caused
the fall

fresh
adventures
await beyond
the stale boundaries
of previously flawed
perceptions

carry
those mad
experiences
on the continued
journey
to incredibly color
the everchanging
tapestry
of now

we
have
survived

with blue
butterflies
