Letting go of grudges

I Kiss The World

Ants march and go about their duties.

Giving their allegiance and obedience to their Queen.

I kiss the worker and the leader, one in need of the other,

even though from afar,

the workers seem to be doing all the work.

However, what the Queen does, is for a worthy cause.

She has created creation and for that, she becomes a Queen of life.


Ideas move like a pendulum for some

while others ideas are stuck in motion and rigid.

I kiss all thinkers for their ideas and trying to understand

the difficulties and intricacies of this thing called life.

Ideas are born and ideas die.

Ideas are passing clouds that is best not to try and hold,

or else fingers become like prunes,

soaked and drenched without ever getting air to dry.

Ideas float around and ideas need to be renewed once in a while.

Ideas gives us meaning while also giving us misery.

Choose ideas that serve and encourage sharing of other ideas.


The earth spins while it orbits the burning sun.

I kiss the landscapes of oceans, mountains and forests.

Nature is here for us while we may not be here for her.

Nature is generous and will never stop giving

even when we have cut her down and changed her environment

to suit our need for money as opposed to caring for her and

allowing her to be, grow and thrive.

Even though, she will still give us trees to sit under to protect us

and give us flowers and sights to appreciate beauty

and provide us with nourishment.


My kiss upon the world is to appreciate

anything and everything.

Even though I see things and I don't understand certain

actions or stories being played out.

It is better for me to see with a vision

that things will be exactly how I dreamed them to be.

I kiss the world while dreaming that she is perfect.
