    Go, be brave, step into a ring of fire
    No excuses – it is your desire
    It is the only choice to exist
    Despite what people tell you,
    The people don’t want to assist

    Go, be brave, kill the beast
    Free my people, free yourself at the least
    He, who doesn't risk, never gets to drink champagne
    Although, the people lack courage
    These people will call you insane

    Go, be brave, take the plunge
    Show your true colors,
    Unleash the damn avalanche
    When shit hits the fan, in a big stinking wave
    Nature will punish cowards and reward the braves

      If a person will Think, they can find the chest.
      But the secret is to think, and analyze … they can find the chest. ff

        Too late. The new poems are gushing out

        My solves had twists, my solves had turns
        I missed the hints, the clues got wrongs
        I spent the time between the trips
        Re-reading poems, searchers' quips
        My stories got a handful views
        The experts granted them fake news
        Dal Neitzel thought my story's poo
        I failed to find a partner too
        No, I'm not whining, what the heck
        The treasure chest's in my backpack!

          I untangled poisonous snakes...
          with no fright
          I have danced with gypsies late...
          into the night

          I caught trouts with bare hands...
          I know what it feels
          Gave my heart to the woman I love...
          head over heels

          I traveled in the wrong directions...
          than the rest
          I am just a man, simple man...
          far from the best

          All in all, in my life, I was really...
          really blessed
          I will end my poem at that...
          have to finish the quest!

            Tomorrow today will become yesterday!
            Left behind in a wake of the moving time
            There is nothing left, only distant memories
            Silent witnesses of the unsolved crimes

            Winners will tell their side of the story
            That makes into history books and legends
            Who remembers those that were killed and buried?
            Burnt on crosses, beheaded and bludgeoned…

            What is above, so is below
            Life seems unfair to new generations
            But those of us, in the know,
            Can glimpse the wisdom of the creation

            Yes, my friends, there are forces
            Unseen and unfelt, beyond veils of time
            We call them Gods and send our prayers
            And they answer… sometimes…

              "I am that iamb,"
              So spoke the sainted sinner.
              "Come smell my pedals."
              When you find yourself at the end of the rainbow, you'll have found what you seek.

                Hello friend.
                I feel the time has come
                For you to know me
                To find, who I become

                You followed in my footsteps
                We played for the exact same team
                I tell you the details
                Of my recurring dream:

                I am hanging on a cliff
                My hands are tired, body aching, legs are stiff
                The stone is crumbling and I lose my grip
                A better hold I try to find, but fingers slip

                And into the abyss I fall
                Eternity has passed, before that happened.
                Another one will start
                But, I achieved my goal

                Eternity of time
                Infinity of space
                Against the little speck of flesh
                That clings for life to a cliff’s face…

                But in the end I knew
                That I have conquered them!
                Just for the simple fact
                Because, I AM.

                  Don't force the poem
                  To fit your spot
                  Let your mind roam
                  And flow in thought

                  If you think you know
                  You may find out
                  You can't let go
                  You can't get out

                  Right or left
                  Up or down
                  High or low
                  Or back around

                  Ideas are sticky
                  Thoughts get stuck
                  This poem is tricky
                  And your stuck in the muck

                  Go back to the poem
                  Says the man
                  Let your mind roam
                  But simplify, if you can

                  What's it like
                  To be his pen
                  Knowing the why
                  Who what and when

                  It's not so easy
                  This side the ink
                  Not at all peasy
                  Getting lost in think

                    I bear my cross
                    Like all the rest
                    Somehow fates chose me
                    To take on a quest

                    I did all I could
                    To raise up my aim
                    The stakes are much higher
                    In TOTC game

                    I cracked clue by clue
                    And I saw the signs
                    I went boots on the ground
                    For six times...

                    The place that is crucial
                    And ties them all
                    Is a teeny-tiny
                    Waterfall

                    This is the crux,
                    This is the X
                    When you find its location
                    Everything checks

                    But let my consclusion
                    Not bring you down
                    The treasure chest
                    Has not yet been found.

                      If -- by Rudyard Kipling

                      If you can keep your head when all about you
                      Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
                      If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
                      But make allowance for their doubting too;
                      If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
                      Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
                      Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
                      And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

                      If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
                      If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
                      If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
                      And treat those two impostors just the same;
                      If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
                      Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
                      Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
                      And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

                      If you can make one heap of all your winnings
                      And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
                      And lose, and start again at your beginnings
                      And never breathe a word about your loss;
                      If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
                      To serve your turn long after they are gone,
                      And so hold on when there is nothing in you
                      Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

                      If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
                      Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
                      If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
                      If all men count with you, but none too much;
                      If you can fill the unforgiving minute
                      With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
                      Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
                      And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

                            Against the Laws
                            ***

                            I believe the people on Fenn's quest
                            are somewhat different
                            from the rest.

                            They thought they chase after noble cause,
                            In the process they break
                            through all kinds of laws:

                            Sip some water and eat a sandwich,
                            then learn anew
                            the English language.

                            The mind with desire burns
                            to unseat the law of
                            diminishing returns


                            With almost certainty
                            one needs to assault
                            the principle of uncertainty

                            One could get a mental damage
                            when the law of logic
                            he will challenge

                            A favorite one of all,
                            to breach the realm of Gods!
                            (t'was my goal)

                            Finally, for the sake of brevity
                            I just mention
                            the law of gravity...

                              "This song reminds me of prom 1998
                              I fell in a lake and swam with my date.
                              My curfew was one,
                              I was having too much fun,
                              When I got home Dad handed me my fate."

                              I was grounded for three weeks with no phone and extra chores. Aaah what Id give to go back to that night. The freedom of being 17 without a care in the world.
