Inner Peace = World Peace


Do whatever it takes to have that inner peace: sleep, meditation, self-reflection, exercise, nutritious food, vitamins, nature, ocean therapy, sunlight, aroma therapy, mindfulness, gratitude, forgiveness, goal planning, learning, reading, writing, art, music, movies, massage, hugs, time with loved ones, helping others, and anything that makes you feel good! If all of us are at peace, the world will be at peace!

Make A Law Alive Through The Arts


IMG_20170511_011847_931

When you pass a law as a politician, people will say you did it for votes.

When you argue the law as a lawyer, they will say you did it to win.

But when you make a law alive through the arts, people will see it is from your heart.

We used to say this song made us feel some type of way.


We used to say this song made us feel some type of way.
It used to make us both feel free.
Underneath the covers you would grab my hand.
You’d say you’d never listen to it without me.

“This Song” by RAC ft. Rostam.

I know when you’re around.


I know when you’re around because I know that sound – the sound of your heart.

Make It Better


After undergoing four rough days from a flu, I was happy to get back to work even though my energy was still low. While drafting a document at Starbucks in Pearl City, Oahu, Hawaii, I overheard this song “Make It Better” by Hazel English in their speakers as I was ordering my beverage. I like the catchy beat and mellow tune.

The following are the lyrics:

I want to be seen
Yet I want to be invisible
I want everything
Yet I want nothing at all

All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better

I am confident
Yet I always seem to doubt myself
I am intelligent
Yet I know nothing at all

All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better

I want to be seen
Yet I want to be invisible
I want everything
Yet I want nothing at all

All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better
All of these thoughts I have
Negate each other
I keep trying to understand
How to make it better
But I can’t make it better

How Super Can I Become?


Trembling without love.

How super can I become?

Losses become wins.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, 2/23/2017, Haiku #54 –

Here’s a songĀ “Forever in Silence” by Solstis that helped to bring out my emotionsĀ and words to this Haiku poem, which I was able to write in seconds.
