Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

Like a ghost mingling among some fleshy creatures

I always make sure to turn fleshy before we touch

but a world apart from their painful features

although understanding them all so much.

Oh, how I wish they could understand me as well

not because I need a shoulder to cry on

but for them to shake off heavy armor and suffering spell

inspired enough with my spiritual garments to try on.

I've got nothing to sell and even less for bragging

can't even give for free what's not appealing to be taken

just feeling this wish at times persistently nagging

to see more smiles in this world looking god-forsaken.

With laughing spared for jokes and loving for lust

they wallow in what seems like a dark hypnotic trance

with worries and angers and struggles to adjust

while calling all that "human" with no wish to advance.

They don't think of "human" that's never been tried

that hidden part of us waiting to be yet discovered

one with choice, intent, and freedom as an inner guide

with unutterable harmony and peace of a true life-lover.
