Night time homily at an Omnist Diary.
My time of implementation of this action will begin in September 2019. My first step towards satisfaction has been to notify my shop steward on May 14, 2019 and my department manager whom has been notified on May 15, 2019.
In my union handbook it states on page 10 section 4.7, in the first line that, “Sunday work shall be assigned on a voluntary basis”. Currently, everyone in the department works 6 days per week. Sunday is deemed overtime, yet, it is voluntary. I have been successful in my endeavors to be able to afford one Sunday per week off where I can further practice and share my religion with fellow practitioners.
I have recently stated that I no longer want to volunteer my time to work on Sunday, so that I may have that day set aside to practice my religion. The result I received is that management may either laugh at me, or, inconvenience me during the work week by sending me to stores farthest from my home.
Upon the insinuation of having my life inconvenienced as an act of spite (in order to get me to quit my job), my reaction is as follows: “for nearly four years there has been no need for me in stores that are farthest away from my home. Therefore, there is no need for my services to be sent to another state, nor thirty miles away from my geographic locality (neighborhood). Essentially, these insinuations carry no real weight, nor tangible reason. They are merely a threat towards my time and my quality of life.”
As per the union handbook it states on page 18 section 8.2 a) It is agreed that seniority ranking of each employee will be exercised in the following sequence:
1. WITHIN THE GEOGRAPHIC LOCALITY.
2. An adjoining locality.
3. Any store covered by this local union.
Page 22 of the union handbook, section 8.3 f)
2. THE EMPLOYER AGREES TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE IN COST OF TRANSPORTATION BY AN INVOLUNTARY TRANSFER FROM ONE STORE TO ANOTHER, WHICH TRANSFER INCREASES THEIR NORMAL COST OF TRANSPORTATION CALCULATED AT FORTY-ONE CENTS ($.41) PER MILE.
I am no stranger to working hard and I take a large amount of pride in my time spent for compensation of my services. Upon negotiations and since I do not celebrate any observed holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day nor any of the lesser holidays; I would be willing to volunteer my time during the Sunday’s PRIOR to PAID holidays, as they are normally far busier than a normal weekend.
In accordance and fairness to fellow employees pertaining to this matter (as per stated in the union handbook), Sundays are voluntary. If a person is able to afford to take Sunday off then, regardless of religion, this should be done without question and without excuses, or fear of punishment out of spite.
I am taking the proper steps to cater to implementing text from my religious doctrine to practice the “value of time”. I am gathering the essential paperwork to dub a vacant lot on my property in order to establish a recognized religious sancuary. It may thereby be recognized by government where I can practice and share my form of religion through the use of social media outlets. With actions such as these being taken into consideration, it is the duty of management to accommodate my request as per stated in the union handbook. It is also my constitutional right to have the days off I so choose to practice my religion in my place of worship, or where-so ever I choose according to the dictations stated in my religious text’s.
This is a real life occurance between myself and my employers. I am currently fighting for my time and quality of life, while at the same time sticking up for my fellow employees right to their quality of life. I will keep you updated on this matter.
I am somewhat displeased with a recent state of affairs. In my union handbook it states on page 10 section 4.7, IN THE FIRST LINE! that “Sunday work shall be assigned on a voluntary basis”. Now, everyone in the department works 6 days per week. Sunday is deemed overtime, yet, it is voluntary. I have been successful in my endeavors to be able to afford one Sunday per week off where I can further practice and share my religion known as ‘Omnism’ with fellow practitioners.
I have recently stated that I no longer want to volunteer my time to work on Sunday, so that I may have that day set aside to practice Omnism. The result I’ve recently received is that management may either laugh at me, or, inconvenience me during the work week by sending me to stores farthest from my home. THIS is the integrity of greedy employers taking advantage of their employees. The practice of ‘Omnism’ is the exact opposite of this sort of tyrranical behavior.
Upon the insinuation of having my life inconvenienced as an act of spite (in order to get me to quit my job), my reaction is as follows: “for nearly four years there has been no need for me in stores that are farthest away from my home. Therefore, there is no need for my services to be sent to another state, or thirty miles away from my residence. Essentially, these insinuations carry no real weight, or tangible reason. They are merely a threat towards my time and my quality of life.”
I am no stranger to hard work and I take a large amount of pride in my time spent for compensation of my services. Upon negotiations and since I do not celebrate any observed holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Fourth of July or any of the lesser holidays; I would be willing to volunteer my time during these weekends as they are normally far busier than a normal weekend and I understand that my time would be more appreciated as per my fellow employees.
In accordance and fairness to fellow employees pertaining to this matter. As per stated in the union handbook Sundays are voluntary. If a person is able to afford to take Sunday off then, regardless of religion this should be done without question and without excuses, or fear of punishment out of spite. Concerning Omnism and it’s dictations, it is stated that regardless of the nature of mainstream religions, everyone is an Omnist.
I am taking the proper steps to cater to implementing text from ‘I Omnist’ to practice the “value of time”. I am gathering the essential paperwork to dub a vacant lot on my property in order to establish a legitimized ‘Omnist Diary’. It may thereby be recognized by government where I can practice and share my form of Omnism through the use of social media outlets. With actions such as these being taken into consideration, it is the duty of management to accommodate my request as per stated in the union handbook. It is also my constitutional right to have the days off I so choose to practice my religion in my place of worship, or where-so ever I choose according to the dictations stated in ‘I Omnist’.
Any unfair treatment towards me or fellow employees regarding this matter may be met with legal backlashes for discriminatory nature against religious practices. Thereby making public the deceit towards employees and tarnishing the name of the company.
It’s easy to take one look at me and assume my life is fine.
Allow me to explain to you how far things are from being sublime.
There is no prescribed medication for my curious affliction.
However, I’d not be me without this quirky, rare condition.
Crowds of people moving, are dizzying, at best.
A mere ten seconds of exposure means I need to take a rest.
I look back upon my life, reminiscing on the years I’ve grown.
I can remember every moment that compliments my syndrome.
It causes me to obsess on things that most folks find mundane.
Chess, fish, and researching anything that has a name.
It keeps me distant from my peers and awkward family.
I’ve witnessed lovers’ falling tears whilst they beg, implore, and plea.
It’s not as if I couldn’t care. If anything, I care too much.
I warn others before getting involved that loving me is dangerous.
I tell people I’m not the same, their response is, “I believe”.
They get the message over time; then they pack their bags and leave.
I understand as best I can, leaving “well-enough” alone,
but; it’s impossible to talk to me when I don’t pick up the phone.
Eye-contact is, what it is: very few and far between.
Looking around helps me keep my focus, it is simply how I glean.
Sounds they do antagonize; which causes senses to overload.
I feign those days as best I can, ‘meltdowns’ relax me after I implode.
Public events are out of the question, there are no concerts I would attend.
Gatherings, for holidays, are nothing more than make-pretend.
I process real-life differently than people care to comprehend;
at times it seems it’s getting worse, too often I wish my world would end.
Sarcasm and irony are two subjects that confuse me.
I know not the difference in the former, while the latter’s meaning eludes me.
There’s few possessions that I hold dear, my life warrants little room for stuff.
A bag, some books, a stick, and hat (the stick’s for walking, not looking tough).
I carry on-and-on each day with aspirations of “normal feelings”.
My heart breaks for those I love when it come to my eccentric routines.
Yes, I feel, I have emotions; written word is how I convey them.
The lucky few who’ve seen them out-loud wish indeed that I repressed them.
Alcohol will numb these symptoms, though it’s not in my best interest.
Words like ‘loathe’ come to mind when I become that man I detest.
I wear my heart out on my sleeve, I wax and wane to my emotions.
You’ll find my mind in the “lost and found” when it comes to said notions.
I’m at war inside myself, the damage done none can see.
It’s my ‘Aspergers’, it’s not a thing, it simply is what makes me…me.…

‘OMNIST BOOK OF SHADOWS
THE NON-PRAGMATIC GRIMOIRE
OF CHARLES POORE (~the Wordsmith~)’
For the sufficiency of my imagination, that which I feel is the fibre of my existence. This is my god and it requires neither homage nor servitude; merely that it is at my disposal at all times.
This is me being a novice.
If you hang with the lame you’re going to learn how to limp.
Don’t worry about things that have gone wrong, focus on what has gone right.
Don’t become a stinky witch, because I will go which hunting.
Why pray or curse anything?
Fear no thing and no one.
Do not hold yourself hostage to tradition (however, allow yourself to be free enough to partake in any of your choosing). There are no validating ceremonies for the reality of being human, it is your value placed into life.
Let the dead see the light.
Most anything may be taken at face value, until it becomes worthless.
The logic of a god is that of, “I know not of my existence without the thought of me”.
Capture life, energy, light, dark, and gray.
Bind those that bind.
Some, are the darkness that understand that those that fear them could not shine without them.
True power comes from knowing that it’s not really there to begin with.
Summer is not the season to worry about flies. It’s the season to have flies.
2. …there isn’t anyone here.…
Encourage, do not discourage.
People choose their own level of involvement in your life and determine for themselves how it is they engage with you.
First and foremost I am human.
Secondly, I would consider myself Omnist;
one who identifies to my own definition.
Personal questions take some getting used, sometimes needing to be digested before feeding the answer to someone who may not like the answer they get. When people ask it is because it’s something that has been on their mind and there is nothing wrong for them asking. If someone asks if they may ask one, the best response is a diplomotatic response and should be as follows:
“So long as you are willing to respect and accept that I may not yet be willing to answer.”
Excerpt from: I OMNIST (TOT)
Irenic 13: 1-15
1 I am an Omnist
2 My choice in being so is devoid of slavery and servitude to materialistic religion.
3 I am not torn away from God or gods. I am just not for any one specifically.
4 I am an Omnist and I am not against the idea of God or gods.
5 I am also not against the idea of there not being any God or gods, as well.
6 I am an Omnist and I worship no Satan.
7 Nor do I feel the need to partake in Pagan and Wicca rituals. Nor would I disrespect them.
8 I am an Omnist, and I am for the Greek and Roman Myths.
9 I am an Omnist and I am for The Norse and Egyptian gods and all that rest in between.
10 I am an Omnist; one life into another, and another over again and again until you reach the enlightened state of Zen.
11 I am an Omnist; Brahman and Hindu gods are fine by me.
12 I am an Omnist; each of these is all one thing to me.
13 I am an Omnist; each of these means nothing to each one the other.
14 I am an Omnist; I see that none of these would probably exist without the other; none of these things would exist without an Omnist.
15 I Omnist.
Over the course of the past 8 years I have come to discover myself. I have understood that everything that has made me who I am I have kept repressed for 31 years. Time managed this and the capacity of my mind has grown, and grows, at a method of measurement that has not been discovered.
it is not that YOU are, or that YOU aren’t, it is simply that things ARE.
YOU are in charge of your own happiness, no one else is and no-one else’s. The journey is out of your control and is only there to show you people, things, and places.
Be what you want to be as the situation arises. Do not feed into the torment of others evaluation of who they think you are (utilize the ignorance of others).
This is where the notion of Heaven is. One we create in the present.
Do not allow yourself to become fixated on your past and the pasts of others.
Forgive. This is indeed a wonderful feeling. It does not mean you care to be near the person who did you harm. It means you understand who you are, the harm you may have caused them, and grants the possibility to move forward with your life.
Like water, it is always adapting to the moment. As soon as it’s there it is vapor. Live in this time because there is no other choice. The moment we react, move, blink, or breathe the present is past and the gift cannot be returned.
Make happy memories in this time because when it is gone we have only to look back on it with either joy, or misery. The present choice is always in the palm of your hands.
Intuition: A natural ability that makes it possible to know something with neither proof nor evidence.
A guiding symphony of feelings in conjunction with the mind. A natural ability or power that makes it possible to know something without any proof or evidence.
A feeling that guides a person to act a certain way without fully understanding why. Something that is known or understood without proof or evidence.
Everyone is all the same. Take different forms if you want to get laid.
Not just a physical act. It is the sharing of yourself completely with a person you connect with.
Self-improvement is masturbation.
Chocolate beats diamonds every time.
LOVE AND HATE (you decide which is which):
When you become someone’s first trust and last hope.
A person cannot be blamed for whom it is they have loved. That is past.
Rabies will get rid of parasites.
Pity those who have to learn from people that say they hate. Bite your tongue and stay your temper in a simple way to negate.

Here With Me
Omnist Wizard: A founder of an Omnist Diary and essentially, it’s guru.
The nosey and the voyeurs: Let them look, let them watch, let them see. Eventually, they will get bored. Or, they will become so fascinated that they will mimic you. And as it’s been said, mimicry is the highest form of flattery.
Chameleon: a.k.a. copycat personality. Someone who can be anywhere and do anything while rarely being seen. It takes a keen sense of empathy to pick up on this. When you meet one, learn and absorb all you can.
Narcissist: Do not engage. If engaged do not allow your mind to be warped. See through manipulation and take from the person a mindset that is otherwise thought of as awful. This ability can be utilized as clout when confronted by those who attempt to hurt you.
Home: Your heart can be taken anywhere, what you project gives the essence of who you are at any given place.
Nature: reacts slowly when damage is done. What you do now to harm it may affect your children’s children.
OMNIST DIARY: Any place that Omnism is discussed among Omnists and Omnist Wizards.
Your self: what you carry in thought, heart, and in your pockets.
Spinners: Small objects for relaxation of mind. Silent silencers. Attraction purposes. Conversation pieces.
BOS: can be kept and cataloged in phone, thereby not being touched.
Thief rings (these will give you lust for gold so be careful. However, they give you the ability to bargain)
Crystal ball: see what you want to see, say what you want to say, share what you choose to without words. Charging works in sun (be very careful as this may start a fire), moon, and darkess. If it’s heavy enough it can be used as a tool to defend yourself.
Tarot cards: wonderful story, beautiful art, mystical to those who are unaware. If you have a difficult time understanding those around you, the memory of cards can help to be a third party consultant outside of the realm if divination.
Stones: Should be gifted (when stones are given this way with a felt knowledge behind them, they should be taken care of). Also, another good source of defense.
Sticks: extensions of the body. Various purposes including: meditation, cardio, walking, physical toneness, stretching, reaching, intimidation.
Blades: Practical and weaponized uses. Pocket knives all the way up to swords. Degree of personal comfort and can be charged for significance before use.
Earplugs: relaxation, muffling sounds, easing sensory overload.
Dugouts: Little wooden boxes for storing a peace-pipe and a small amount of peaceful smoke.
SPELLS, SHIELDS, AND DETRIMENTS:
Conjure from within (there is no charge).
Endure in hope.
Always hold on to good intentions.
Do not be bitter.
Take the notion of “can’t” away from possibility.
WHITE: Protection, healing. Used until broken down or depleted.
‘Fidget Spinner Self’ (meditative purposes)
Use of staff (I prefer three sectional). Take staff outside and listen to the sounds of nature. Move to the rhythm your body takes you until spinning at full force. Be mindful of flailing sticks and become onecwuth the presence of the substances used to create the staff (wood, metal, plastic, etc…etc….). Play, relax, spin to music, spin to nature, spin to expel stress and frustration. Spin until you’re exhausted and come up with katas on your own accord.
GRAY: These spells are constantly in effect in a cyclic motion and help in determining which way to drift when using white and black in conjunction with one another. Keep balance between the love of power and the power of love.
‘The Village Idiot’
Play the role and expectations will be slim to none. You don’t have to be stupid, just remind yourself that heavy is the head that wears the crown.
It’s imperative to be responsive with the constant, back of the mind notion, that you truly couldn’t care less about another person. This sounds awful, but, it may likely be the best way to give the most heartfelt advice.
This is an outline for constantly reminding yourself of the use of anything that may affect another. Be it positive, or negative.
BLACK: Defensive spells used in response to major negativity perpetuated by a person or persons. Serious consideration must be taken before the use of ANY of these, as they are primarily aimed at breaking sanity and disrupting a person’s inner peace.
‘Killing With Kindness’
3. Hinge towards apathy
4. Take the good
5. Expel the corpse
6. Move on without remorse
7. Care only for your course
‘Projection of Temporary Insanity’
1. Always, always, ALWAYS be certain to question your own. This takes years to master and there is a rest period that needs to be adhered to after this is done.
2. Practice on yourself first so that you have a better understanding for those deserving.
3. It is not to be trifled with because you know who you are.
4. You’re always fucking with yourself. You realized you don’t know the difference.
5. It’s about circles of the mind and you must know the mind of a person. You’re basically setting loose mind gremlins in someone’s head.
‘Mass Belief Projection’
1. Let others fill their minds about who they think you are.
2.Do not dismiss the allegations, silently understand them better.
3. Agree to disagree and let others build a mystique about you. This is not to be what people say, rather, to sideswipe anything that has been said.
1. Used to break spirit for a length of time.
2. Be prepared for guilt as a consequence and repercussion.
3. Take all you know of a person and remind them that none of it is good.
4. This is cruel, hurtful, and damages the caster and the target.
Keep and protect them if given to you.
Expose yourself to all and you will have none to worry about.
ENERGIES AND ENTITIES
God, gods, and goddesses: refer back to the initial quote at the beginning of the OBOS. If they are offended at my lack of homage towards them it is because I imagined it to be so.
Psychopomp: One that guides souls to the other side.
Muses: Physical and ethereal. The physical always leaves the artist, the ethereal appears in dreams.
Poltergeist: negative energy attached to an object and influenced by chaos.
Ghosts: muses, dreams, messengers, beings from an ethereal realm.
Mind gremlins: destructive seeds planted in a person’s mind to make them question who they are and the world that they built.
Demons: negative aspects of your personality that can be utilized for defensive purposes. Keep them on a leash and allow their barking to serve as a reminder of difficult times and thoughts.
Figments: products of your imagination that assist in changing personalities, thereby allowing you to cope with various situations.
Healing gnomes: Basically, the white blood cells that can be focused on to aid in the process of healing sickness, wounds…etc…etc….
Angels: Masters of disguise.
HERBS AND STUFF:
Marijuana (just a big thumbs up and yes a thousand-fold).
Psilosiben mushrooms (shrooms, holy shit, heaven in a cow’s butt).
Catnip (fun for the familiars).
Apple cider vinegar: Good for heartburn and a variety of stomach ailments. Can be mixed with water and consumed daily to boost immune system.
Beer (Proof that God loves us -Benjamin Franklin-).
Dreams are the plane of existence where your source resides.
Gina made a world. I had to travel through the snow passing all those I know. It’s a terrifying place that’s equally beautiful. You can travel the stars and steal your love on stage. Take them away from who they are wrongly engaged. Start a war with starships and watch them fizzle through the atmosphere. Gina’s planet, where fires burn and you’re six miles away from anything dear.

“This is not an advertisement, so please, allow me to tell you a little bit about a place that does not yet exist, but one day will. My name is Rougan, and I’ve been a citizen of this floating wonder for years. Every time I return from visiting family, or from one of the neighboring nations, my breath is always stolen away from me! This nation is named Omnistocria. Though many that live on natural terrain refer to it as New Atlantis. Or, Pacificis, if you’re priviledged enough to venture across a continent or two to see that place. They are governed under the dictations of Omnistocraticism and thrive without any centralized leadership, or, individual economy within it’s boundaries. Omnistocrians provide all that is needed, utilizing their lives to take active roles to ensure each ship operates efficiently.
Children born on the floating nations of Omnistocria have the most engaging and hands on education. They are first taught reading, writing, and arithmetic. Then, further studies include the outside world, religion, historical events of our nation, and others. Once the children are of age they are taught how the economic system works and why it thrives so well. Upon this understanding each Omnistocrian learns on a weekly basis how to operate every part of each ship. There are no set jobs for any one Omnistocrian. A citizen from say, cargo, could also work the desalinators. Then, a week later, they could be sitting on a seat of consistent balance. Each Omnistocrian, being involved in all ways, helps new ideas and advancements to flourish. They are among the rabble of one another one week. Then, sitting at what most nations may consider the highest seat in office the next week.
Economics in Omnistocria work much in the same cyclic way. Those that started the nation 80 years prior invested all they had in their homelands stock exchange, as well as foreign exchange. Any interest considered profit earned was then put into creating Omnistocria, making it what it is today. The money fronted by each individual remained theirs. To this day, if a person wants to become a citizen, it is as simple as that! Though, individual funds are useless here due to the understanding of freedom these floating nations offer. Funds are only needed for when you travel to your homeland. The cost to get there is nothing and you may come and go as you please.
Deals and trade embargoes are made with allied nations, and because tourism is such and enormous business, Omnistocrians set up shop! The small, hand crafted items are sold daily while the music gets played. Here is where the new renaissance took place and is still making headway to this day. So, it’s no surprise that artwork sells like crazy. Each Omnistocrian is encouraged to earn a living here for the outside world, if they so choose.
It is no surprise that deep sea research expanded. The locations of these cities offered easy and constant access to the Pacific and Atlantic. This propelled humanities understanding of the ocean and it’s creatures. This also aided in satellite advancements and various other techs used in space. Alongside that, the study of planets and stars changed due to the nature of being situated year-round under once unobserved skies. This changed what we knew about weather and so many unknown aspects of our planet!
Omnistocria is an assortment of cruise ships, tankers, shipping ships, and even some decommissioned warships sprinkled here and there as museums. They are tethered together around small islands by means of catwalks. Though, it is also possible to charter smaller vessels through the labyrinth of canals. With each ship that is purchased or donated, Omnistocria expands by repurposing something that would be scrapped. Omnistocrians are the blood, these ships are the body for this self sustaining nation. They provide clean water, and also, renewable energy by means of the sun, sea, and air. Certain ships are designated for agriculture at sea and various other forms of farming to provide Omnistocrians with fresh meats, vegetables, and dairy on a daily basis. Cruise liners are where we Omnistocians reside and go about much of our leisurely days.
Waste management is handled by the process of shrinking matter. Thanks to that development it has made this nation a far easier place to keep up with. Also, certain solids provide ferterlizer and specific types of fuel, much of which gets outsourced to allied nations for refinement. Because only a few ships are designated for travel, Omnistocria has become one the the most environmentally friendly nations on the planet. The air is fresh, and it’s been said that the water Omnistocria floats on is the most vibrant blue you will see from space.
Since the concept of Omnistocria was founded under Omnism, religion is practiced by whatsoever an individual decides, as long as Omnistocraticism’s main laws are observed above all. Ceremonies are practiced in harmony and Omnistocrians don’t squabble over the nature of whose message is correct, we all got the message. Aside from the views, and the freedoms, the people are what make this place irresistible. I could carry on about Omnistocria for hours but that would merely scratch the surface. So many people from all over the world come here and I hope in another 80 years, that alone, will unite the planet.
2099 has been a great year for me and 2100 is looking better and better. I hope to be alive when our nation reveals it’s ideas for pyramid cities which will allow this planet to heal from the ravages of humanity. To think, it all started from the mind of a vagabond jotting his ideas down in a cell phone. He hid all of these wonderful concepts in a book titled ‘I Omnist’. As for me, I am going to get back to my cozy cabin. If you’re reading this, I hope one day you get to live this dream. Farewell!”

Everything is as it should be, but me.
All the world wants to be different;
How I wish they could only see.
See what it is that makes me tick;
the daily trials my mind endures.
That my thought process carries no real benefit;
the rigors of my intellect are never-ending chores.
I have many trains of thought, you see;
They all have many stops and stations.
To you, that may be taken metaphorically
To me, it’s the world, an endless destination.
I don’t say that to many folks (they tend to disagree)
It leads to many agonizing, frantic-conversation.
There is a name for this strange condition.
A name that took me years to find.
Those that share this have their own rendition.
To many, this blight may seem unkind.
To live in a structured isolation
That’s been built by each individual mind.
I’d like to thank Dr Hans Asperger
Whom took the time to identify us.
He sat back as a willing observer
Of several boys deemed mysterious.
More-so they were silent, smart, and clever;
These differences dubbed them, neurodiverse.
This arrangement gives to us a peculiar diposition.
One that lets us see the world in ways that many won’t.
For us Aspies, we have to process many different definitions.
One to live a “normal” life and one to live how others don’t.
No, we are not all the same. Again, each have their own rendition;
One’s a singer, one’s an actor, one’s a writer, and one’s a dolt.
As for me, I’m one that has to think twice before I speak.
I’m the damsel in distress and at the same time I’m the enemy.
I’m the hero of the tale, that upon realization, becomes meek.
I see the colors that come from sound, but, I can’t prove this absurdity.
I learn, obsess, and stay stone cold still, once every day, month, or week.
I’ll also meltdown after too much of people and high pitched frequency.
I’ll tell myself, after some time, after it’s gone away for awhile.
That I’m “normal”, I’m like the rest, and my thoughts are just like “theirs”.
I’ll be able to confine who I am and for a moment I may smile.
It doesn’t last though, my mind is a revolving door, or the Penrose Stairs.
I’ll have to breathe and be away from anything more than docile.
While on those tracks, thought-engines chug along, pulling my despairs.
Just know that I’m not dangerous and I don’t mean to be rude.
I’m locked inside my mind, you see, and I’m constantly expanding.
Making room in an endless place of evanescent pulchritude
Where time stands still and reality is dwarfed by careful handling.
There I go and build my world, spending an infinity of servitude.
So one day my words will be understood as more than nonsensical rambling.

Before I realize it I will be old.
Until then, I’ll continue my delusion,
That all I put my hands on turns to gold.
Not that I am speaking of glittering confusion.
Rather, an understanding of a thought so far fetched;
It unfetters humanity from economic institution.
Giving us reason to hold our hands outstretched
Without fear that helping someone has a price.
Trading greed for value so peace may be etched
Into the stone of our magnificent edifice.
When looking back upon ‘our history’ of OUR time,
I hope our children’s children realize some were nice.
That we cared to acknowledge the sublime
Utilizing the innate skills from both heart and mind;
Uniting our souls through harmony and rhyme.
