~The Only Solution~

~The Only Solution~

Itís the only solution isnít it amazing

Words transcribed by lightning emblazing

Etched upon stone that hangs on our tomb

When flowers no longer blossom and bloom


We shed divine spirit of faith for the flesh

Without weaving prophecies into the mesh

Divided our cultures definitions of belief

Across this world both above and beneath


Although the heavens constantly mothered

The truth still remains mortally undiscovered

And the time to learn our survival assignment

Lies in synchronization of universal alignment


The vibration of higher existence grows closer

The story starts over as this one finds closure

The new generation and their hardships become

Reminders of this one and how it grew numb

Author's Notes:

Years ago when I first began writing poetry and exploring different levels of our existence, I was heavily influenced by Jim Morrison and The Doors.

It became an obsession about a year after my best friend of 22 years committed suicide and to be honest still catalyzes my mind today. I began writing a book about 6 months ago Iíve always wanted to do basically describing how The Journey began and some of the experiences through the years that changed my life. Iíd always written notes and journals, so each year from 1993 on became a chapter detailing events that were truly miracles right in front of my eyes at times. The other day I was sitting with my wife talking about how rewinding all these things was kind of haunting me.

She made a comment that she believed my belief was being tested right now and told her that is how I truly felt lately. A little later something happened that basically gave me those signs that in the past always reassured me of just how real The Journey is.

Then while prepping to write a little in the new book,

I thought Iíd play a few Doors songs for inspiration.

When the song Shamans Blues ended, the last line you hear Morrison say is

ďItís the only solution, isnít it amazingĒ
I stopped the music and let that line sort of echo in my mind for a moment. Suddenly I start hearing words and started typing. In the next few moments Iíd typed these words so fast that I didnít know for sure what Iíd written. Thatís how it would happen in the past. If I had any doubts in the ability of belief Iíve been offered whenever I need it, I donít anymore.

May the Light of Shangri~La Shine on this Existence.
