"Energy" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on March 11, 2016


Moving in

Moving out

To somewhere, idk, how about California

Some place to follow or find love or fame

A shallow hole, deep enough to fawn over thy self and our earthly dilemma

Contrived somewhere within this dream

Energy, moving in, moving out and nothing is as it seems

And it's truth, the rock, the unmoving force, caught in between

Where compassion has it's limits, and apologies lay the soul to rest

Our energy is out in California, putting itself up to the test

With love out on the coast, how are we to get along?

Well, we won't

We will bicker and we will fight, and worst of all we will judge

And we will come up short, as we await the grace of hindsight to clear this jungle and reveal the path

But love is somewhere out in California

We hear it's coming back

We see it moving in

We feel it wash, everything is clean

We are once again, pure

We are wiser through death

This clarity it brings, we recognize the energy

Moving in, moving out

We understand, we had to let it go

And with hindsight, we see, and now we know

It keeps coming back

And we await the grand reprise, the familiar tune

I hear love is somewhere out in California, flying back to us under a crescent moon

And the patient hearts rejoice

The hardened hearts are eased

The damaged hearts repaired

The loving hearts a glow

      You're spot on Dana. That exact occurrence was happening to my friend, and he is a completely positive force, but California was sucking his soul, and now he's back and he's striving to get back to himself, but all the lives he's touched by coming back are in a better place, and they are nursing him as he nourishes us also.

      Take it from someone who lives in California the only place that can be worst to move to is New York. The reason I say this is, tinsel town (California) and the big apple (New York) is the city of dreams. The problem is you lose your soul and sense of self pursuing "fools gold" and by the time you realize the true meaning of life it may not matter anymore. I'm glad your friend realized this before it was too late. For some California doesn't give you positive energy, but sucks what little energy you have out of you.

      Ha Jodah, no, you need to stay away from California. This poem is about a friend who left for California to pursue such things, and he left behind a lot of things that mattered to him, in that process what he left behind needed his love and energy, his friends and family needed him, he is the type of person that is the glue that keeps people together; a positive energy and a love force. He went out to California and things fell apart, but now he's back and healing is occurring.

      Best to you, Jodah, thanks as always.

      Eric, do I need to move to California to experience the energy? People are always searching for love or fame or both, and many unfortunately fail. Well written poetry once again.
