I seek savior in ages of critical thought.


I seek savior in ages of critical thought.

I seek savior in ages of critical thought.

I’m so lost.
I have one foot in the living,
while the other foot is out.
I seek savior in ages of critical thought.

– poem, +positive masters+, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 3/3/2020 –

At times, you may have conflicting feelings that pull you in opposite directions. In this poem, I refer to your feeling of wanting to get away from everything; yet, you’re still wanting to be a part of it. You’re frustrated with the bad things in the universe; yet, you greatly appreciate the good. If you’re feeling this, I understand. I go through these periods too.

Critical thinking – philosophy has helped me to calm my racing mind and fears. For example, Stoicism and Buddhism has been beneficial for me when managing any suffering I face because these practices help me to accept that suffering is a part of the process of living as a human. By accepting it, I’m more able to direct my mind to work on things that I have control over and to appreciate the good things in my life. Also, reading about the tremendous suffering that a number of philosophers had gone through, some of which were for speaking their thoughts and hypotheses, has motivated me to endure my own suffering.

Ghostly apparition, don’t worry, we’re not afraid of you.


Ghostly apparition, don't worry, we're not afraid of you.

Ghostly apparition, don’t worry, we’re not afraid of you.

Ghostly apparition, don’t worry, we’re not afraid of you.
There are things you wish you did, things you wish you said.
We appreciate the love you gave and the many things you did.
You are remembered in this world of the undead.

When it’s real, you just feel.


I repurposed the following poem I wrote for +positive masters+.

When it's real, you just feel. A romantic poem.

“When it’s real, you just feel.” A romantic poem. Enjoy!

When it’s real, you just feel.

It’s neither here nor there.

It’s everywhere.

Close your eyes and you’ll see.

I’ll focus on you. You focus on me.

Feel the energy as the two of us becomes “we.”

Counting Down My Time.


Counting down my time.

My drive keeps me alive.

So I hustle and I grind.

As soon as I stop, that’s when darkness thrives.

It lurks, patiently waiting for my last mentor to die.

Go Within and Build


Go within and build.

People and things won’t fill us up.

Explore and create.

You live in a fable. They laugh at you and call you unstable.


You live in a fable.

They laugh at you and call you unstable.

You’re not playing your role.

Nothing about it is fun.

That’s why you threw away the script and wrote another one.

You said, “Friends are forever.”


You said, “Friends are forever.”

“Lovers never last.”

Now where are we?

We’ve faded into a blurry past.
