Honorable Discharge



Throw away the thoughts that make

you sad, they will not exist if you leave

them behind, don't think of things

that will stop the light from shining



Imagine how long it takes to hollow out a 

log to make a vase out of bamboo shoots

in a corner of a dark cold room, surely

not worth the effort making something

looking beautiful from the heart, but

the beauty of the effort is worth the beauty

that appears within.


Food for thought is food for the imagination

creator of majestic impossibilities possible

little bits of light to shine up a lonely spot

hiding away in your heart.


In case you stumble down the cliff of

memories you should have dismissed

many years back, now leave those

memories, the cliff is being worn down

by the waters of time.


It will now be perfect to give everything

and every one an honorable discharge

on command.


(Move on!)


Let's always be a winner!
