Wonders do grow from the isles of green, Speaking of treasures so bright and clean. And fairy folks with a magic sheen, Know that now’s the time to begin the beguine.

Then wonders will flow to a faraway land,

Where the brave and the mighty, and the beautiful stand. For you, nothing less do I demand, Then to bow your head while I take a stand.

Time has passed and other poets have spoken, But I’d be remiss if I didn’t give you this token. Yes, falling in love can be a dream come true, If you know that the truth is - love falls in you.

If I told you exactly what you need to do, Then living in the presence of God is for you. Expecting forgiveness has been your right all along, As a child always does, when learning right from wrong.

From now on, you’re OK, and have me to guide you, And for your inspiration, it’s my pleasure to so do. I know that some will think that this is about love and sex, What has God got to do in the middle of this context?

I know that sometimes it’s been rough for you, And it’s hard to figure-out just what you have to do. Who am I, how did I get here and where the Hell am I going? I understand you and the winds of change are a-blowing.

Something has been wandering around in my head, A final reunion of the living and the dead. An external symbol of an internal reality, A message forgotten from the powers that be.

I know male and female like never before, I have got the key and I’m opening-up the door. We’ve gotten confused and fallen prey to deception, We need a transformation of human perception.

I had a few questions and the answers came in rhyme, Now I have the answers but oh, so little time. What I am doing will be confusing to some, Who think there is no reality only the perception of one.

From the moment that you read this, I am deep inside of you, Now the only thing for you, is to decide what to do. All it took was a cup of tea and a talk with a friend, And I sat down and wrote this poem from beginning to end.

I wasn’t ready to do this and I wanted to wait, But the baby was being born and it was already too late. The truth is ready to come-out, so that all the world can see, I am doing away with the question whether to be or not to be.

I decided to talk to you and knew you were waiting for this, I have to make a direct hit because we can’t afford a miss. I have to come inside of you and I know where you live, I know that you are ready now for all that I give.

I am not coming inside of you to cause more confusion, I know what you need now - I’m not suffering from delusion. I know others have talked to you and you’ve heard from every side, But I’m going to tell you the truth and there’s nowhere to hide.

Inside yourself you have always longed to be sensual, And lose control of yourself and feel a love that’s actual. The thoughts and fears that might have held you back, Are the very things now needed to get you on-track.

When love is inside of you it’s reaching-out to be, And that’s why you’re pulling inward to feel the key. Falling in love activates the pleasure in your brain, Only thing that stops you is you don’t want to be hurt again.

Right now, this is the only way that we can communicate, We must be careful of what we say before it gets too late. Your thoughts were always wondering but now you’ve met me, You want to make sure your feelings are things that I can see.

You can see all of my thoughts, I put them-out in plain view, Only thing that can make you whole is believing in what you do. Our desire to really feel each other is coming-out in many ways, Even if we decide to do nothing and go our own ways.

From the beginning of my life I was always tuned-in, I don’t know where you are but I’m ready to begin. So open-up your soul and let me give you this power, And never-mind the time and forget about the hour.

The very thing you need has come like a thief in the night, It may be a bit un-settling but you know that I am right. You’ve always known that someone would be coming for you, To tell you the reason why, and what you have to do.

You don’t have to do anything that you don’t want to do, You thought no one cared but I’ll help you get through. I’m going to hold your hand now and fill you-up with my care, The future always opens-up for those of us who dare.

Many others have come before me and they all knew what to say, The only problem now is that we don’t know night from day. We’ve been so long in darkness that we’ve forgotten about the light, We’ve gotten all confused and we don’t know wrong from right.

It’s not our fault, we know that, but there’s no one else to blame, Like a soldier who’s been captured and only gives-up his name. There’s so much information that we don’t know what to think, We don’t know how we got here but we know we’re on the brink.

Like everyone else I know the tricks of classic storytelling, But I thought I’d do it my way and make this more compelling. I could open with a climax and spend the time recapping, How it unfolded to that point with the plots all overlapping.

I could begin with an invocation to my own artistic muse, And include long lists and speeches in order to mislead and confuse. Or conjure-up divine intervention on all of our human affairs, I could present this a whole number of ways but I’m not putting on airs.

I’ve decided I’m going to talk to you and put it to you straight, I don’t have the time for technique and it’s already much too late. We don’t know who to trust, and we’ve all been disappointed, And the last thing we need is one who thinks that he’s anointed.

I’m over-coming the barriers and coming right into your mind, Because that’s what’s necessary - up to now you’ve been blind. When you were a little kid you watched a mother love its pup, That’s the love I have for you - it’s going to fill you right up.

Once upon a time and a long time ago, A boy was born and he started to grow... My mother always told me it was a pain to give birth, When you dig too deep who knows what you’ll un-earth.

My mother was white and my father was hot, I never knew what I was, only what I was not. Because I was so bright and so filled with charm, I always protected myself so that no one could do me harm.

Right from the very beginning I was sensitive and smart, I’d like to give you some background but I don’t know where to start., Suffice it to say that I wasn’t always so tough And the kids in the playground can sometimes be rough.

I tried to get along thinking my brains were Heaven-sent, But they used it against me and thought I was arrogant. It was rough in school and I sensed from the start, That I’d better be cool, and hide the fact that I was smart.

When I was a little boy and just starting to play, My family broke-up and my father went away. I didn’t understand and all I could do was yearn, For the day to come when just as suddenly he’d return.

As the time went by and my questions got bolder, My mother never answered me saying wait ‘till you get older. From the very beginning I felt that something was missing, I retreated into myself and I no longer liked kissing.

I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

Started not to want anyone to ever get too near, The thought that if I loved them, they’d go away, was my fear. I began to daydream and really liked what I could see, Thought who needs anyone else as long as I have me.

I created a new world and in it I was boss, I had to do it in order to cover-up my loss. I didn’t like the real world, all the colors seemed grey, I wanted to stay in the light and let the pain go away.

I started to read and just allowed my mind to go away, Always staying-in when all my friends went out to play. My consciousness was wandering but it always came back, And now that I think of it, for this I had a knack.

I started to read about people and all the world’s places, And there came an understanding of what the human race is. You see during the era that I was brought-up and raised-in, For my mom to love a black man was considered to be a sin.

Things haven’t changed much, though we’ve come a long way, There’s still no understanding of the colors in the light of day. As an artist I knew that there was no person who was white, And to say that there was a black man was certainly not right.

At a very early age, I studied the colors of the rainbow, And even with that, there were many things I didn’t know. But now it has come to me and I’m going to share it with you, No man is one color, and there’s no such thing as blue.

Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation, It has been with us ever since the creation. When you mix all of the colors of visible light, We end-up with the color we think of as white.

It is the absence of this that we think of as black, There’s much in this theory that is suffering from lack. The colors of light reaches us as energy, That is why our eyes don’t need to be open to see.

I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

No one really cares about all of the things I went through, It’s all about who I’ve become and what does that mean to you. I’ve become a romantic tough-guy with love and wisdom to share, And I don’t know who needs it so I’m tossing it up in the air.

I don’t care where you came from or where you are when you read this, Nothing matters to me because I know that you need this. We’ve forgotten that we’re related we are torn by family strife, So I’ve got to talk to you straight and lay down the facts of life.

 

22  


I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

I started-out to tell you about how I grew-up until now, But now I’ve come to think it doesn’t matter somehow. What matters most is where we are and where we’re going, I have my finger in the air and the winds of change are blowing.

We’ve become too busy in life to see the colors of a rose, And to know the things we’re searching for are right under our nose. All of a sudden what I know is coming out in rhyme, I hope it doesn’t mean that I am running-out of time.

 

23  


I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

For many lonely years I’ve wandered around, I was searching for a peace that was never to be found. Still I believed in it, I knew it had to be there, I knew all of the talk was not just hot air.

I looked deep into the eyes of the one who should know, I am getting a bit weary knowing that soon I have to go. I want some real answers and I want them right now, Like why is it so hard? And who are you anyhow?

 

24  


I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

I thought I had learned every bit of the wisdom, To embody the truth, and help build the kingdom. Then suddenly I feel a soft tap upon my shoulder, It happens in a flash and I know that I am older.

Then with a whisper a voice enters my ear, Saying you’ve done well my son and have nothing to fear. Just give-out the rest of your life, love and laughter, And the secret you’ve sought will be found in the hereafter.

I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

The warmth and the kindness that springs from your soul, Will show the path to others and that is your goal. Today you are called upon to give all of this away, So do it like a man, smile, and do it with joy.

And remember the day when a wise little boy, Wrote a poem on the spot and showed off his new toy… So I’m sending this aloft to move the heart of a friend, Hoping it’s a beginning and not just the end.

I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

The special joys of sharing our lives together, All of this is yours from today… and forever. For now that you believe that my love is yours to own, I’m deep inside of you and you’ll never be alone.

Like I said, it doesn’t matter from where we had to start, What’s important now is that we vow to never part No one can say exactly when one window shuts, And another one opens-up with no ifs, ands or buts.

 

27  


I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

The joy of life is that yes, while some things may have passed, There can be many years ahead all better than the last. What we should know is that as the world turns, Not every little fire is something that burns.

Like the fire of passion that can never be quenched, No matter the pain from which it was wrenched. The trick of course is to believe that the bright light of today, Is the evidence of a true love that forever will stay.

 

28  


I’M DEEP INSIDE OF YOU: HOW TO MAKE LOVE WITH LIFE... AND DIE LAUGHING!

 

To know that with every ending there is a new beginning, Is to go through the trials with one’s heart singing. Sometimes we are wounded and we think we will bleed, Then comes the healing with the very thing we need.

No marks, no bruises, in spite of bad weather, Just the joy of hearts that are entwined forever. The path that leads to our joy is not always clear, But with every year’s end… there is a new year.

William the who? William Shakespeare dealt with such themes, As love, beauty, politics and mortality. He often declared that his sonnets will outlast Such earthly things as monuments and inscriptions. It's now up to me to enhance his works And bring them some light and a brand new reality. This little poem is not a revelation or epiphany, It’s deliberately constructed to defy your descriptions. If it is true as once was stated, That all of the world is merely a stage. And each man and woman is simply an actor, Reciting their lines as they enter and exit. Then as one play begins without the other being negated, So we each have our part as we turn the page. By passing down the beauty to the next generation, We have a responsibility to do our little bit...

What's it all about? Life is much more than just being alive, And when all else fails, we need simply play dead. The truth has come to me as a bit of a surprise, But now that I have it, it’s full steam ahead. Michael Louis Brittingham
