The Mafia

we use our powers for good…¬†we think
although
communication and the spread of ideas is essential for innovation and inspires creativity
we know
but the administration has their hands tied
and we need freedom
and for freedom
we need “need to know”

 

Early Enough

LA morning

 

somehow the morning sets me free
If I can just wake
early enough
close to the dawn
I will be renewed
the trench I have sunk myself
deep into
the previous day
will no longer exist
there is hope within the morning
early enough, and I can do something
for myself
before devoting the day
to preoccupations of others
early enough, and I can forget
the pains I went to sleep with
the ways I tried to numb them
how I lost myself between the lines
you can only rise up
in the morning
if it’s early enough
you have not missed anything
you can be ready to face the world
on your own terms
