Bohemian trance


Fancy don't live here no more,
he caught a flight to L.A.
used every last penny he had
to pay his way

he thinks the transient life
is all the rage
won't need any money
when he gets there
just a wing and a prayer

he's an artist
artisans have a way of painting
there own realitys'
somewhere from nowhere
nowhere from somewhere
Paints a tunnel entrance on the side of a mountain
and drives through it to the other side

"come home son"

"not till his work is done"

come home son

“not till he finishes this run”

come home son

“the race has only begun”

don't fret over him
you see...
he's finally free

a tab o' butter in the gutter
pizza crust covered in dust
dumpster diving
but he's surviving

weary of the world
sickened by the greed
idealistic, disillusioned
feeding from discarded crumbs
embracing a dream
stifling a scream

his lyrics
his music
his paint
his poems
his dance
his musings
his pain
his tears


bleed expression
he can't contain
no one sees
no one feels
no one hears
when asked why?
what is the meaning?
what is your purpose?
what do you hope to achieve?

there is no answer
only a hunger
a passion
a calling...
new found Faith
a work of art in progress

he's at a loss to understand
or explain
yet he carries on
confident he knows
all he needs to
with a sense
that tells him
whatsoever is being asked of him
pales in comparison
to what has already been done
And what has been given

in the "flight of fancy"
at last learning
at last living
well on the way
to the eventual
merciful
crash-landing
What we've always taken for granted
Hard earned
Struggled...
And fought for
Beyond borders
So blissfully idealistic and naive
Too young to realize...
FREEDOM...
Has never been "free"

I recently had to write a letter to explain why I do what I do, and it's not an easy thing to do. I can relate to this one.

when asked why?
what is the meaning?
what is your purpose?
what do you hope to achieve?

there is no answer
only a hunger
a passion
a calling...
new found Faith
a work of art in progress

he's at a loss to understand
or explain.

i believe this was influenced by Scott Newport's recent post and the life of Woody Guthrie, the next day while listening to n.p.r. news i learned that this trend of chucking everything for a transient life devoid of a preoccupation with worldly goods is on the increase. it was very interesting and on my mind when i wrote this i guess. it seemed appealing to me at one time for a very long time and i had been homeless for a time as well. so i understand to a degree and sympathize with this sentiment and choice though i would not voluntarily seek it, i know that i would be fine if it came down to being homeless again. by Grace i did not really want for essential needs during that time, Praise God.
