"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Thom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied within seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not?
SO TO WILDFLOWER CHURCH
To learn how best to reclaim personal power
by devising individual and group techniques
to regain autonomy within this society.
There is no "other".No enemy.No aggressor.
We all fault and fail and freak out.Easier to learn
how and why,then devise alternative actions-
whether it be meditation,or altering tone,or simply running away,
Nothing will change unless something changes
And the first person to contemplate personal change -is me.
I will not do what i accuse others of.I learn best by example.
Role modelling for future actions,demonstrations,street theater
Internally,within the stage of domestic contradictions,
is where the changes begin and compound.World can wait outside
while i seek the peace within,to deal with the wilde world inside.
