Tailwind (January 1998)

My feet, it appears, can step nowhere wrong.
Something is guiding my actions.
Floating on destiny’s tide, I ride,
driven by winds I can’t feel or hear.

Fate pulls my strings like a wry puppeteer,
making me dance a cute jig.
The marionette must convey what I feel,
for whatever I, the puppet, desire,

appears on the stage,
a wonder itself.

All things come to those who wait,
or those who see fit to give in,
letting What lies without lie within,
putting the strings in Its hands.

Discovering My Id (August 2001)

of the feeble human mind
in which our selves are hidden

that lays at the root
of our personalities

It watches, and learns
It’s skittish, elusive

completely obscured
from our conscious attention
a symbiotic parasite
intertwined with our souls
