Never Surrender

There is no kind to rest my mind, are these thoughts blessings or a curse I do not know, but they all grow, inside me plaguing every verse Why can’t I shake them, I so hate them, they pull my drive back in reverse These words I’ve leaned on make me better but sometimes they … More Never Surrender

April, I Quit

It’s been too long I’ve tried too much Overnight fame and fortune Both of them are out of touch No longer can I spend all this time and energy Chasing things that may not even be in front of me That’s it. I quit. You heard me right I’m done for now Back to clocks, … More April, I Quit

Prisons Profit

Prisons profit, peasants plea, but they don’t seem to listen, see Why should I abide by men when law can make me rich again? Tell me more about this thing, this concept carved into your ring Tell me of this thing you touch this, thing you claim that you call “justice” I’ve created all the … More Prisons Profit

Behind Bars

Things are changing for me lately, each day for me seems like a haze Ink in wells and all these spells that’s how I spend all of my days Conversations that don’t mean much. Shallow talk I won’t even touch. My hateful thoughts are so enflamed I saw one light up and combust. Don’t care … More Behind Bars

My Words

My Words You may be good with numbers, see But words belong to those like me My foundry melts the “b” and “e” To craft the words which come to be Every letter that I write is stamped with things I think at night These books, these poems, the short stories I write to put … More My Words

Who Am I?

Do not break rhythm, just to rhyme To replicate the pantomime Do not spend life trying to climb A ladder that’s a waste of time Seize the day, right at its dawn Do not exist as someone’s pawn For ’tis not what you’re meant to be So live your life, and live it free Lay … More Who Am I?

The Actor

A twisted tale of truth he hid, as lying’s what he always did Fleeing from the fear his bedroom mirror might make He never judged the things he’d do, but if the same was done by you His fingers would be first to point out every mistake   No thought for who he really was, … More The Actor

Necessary

NECESSARY I think I’ll write a poem that speaks epic truth, tonight It doesn’t matter if you tend to lean left or lean right Politics aren’t helping us, the gap is greater in-between We need to stop fixating on whose King or who is Queen We need to shift the focus to what matters, that’s … More Necessary

Support

It’s so funny To me, at least Each time I see A friend succeed As others shout He’s a sell out! In a negative outburst Real friends agree And true family Support you, see Help climb that tree They do not doubt What you’re about They help you charge headfirst It’s easy to see The … More Support

Mission

The focus settles, nestles in I sit here waiting, lights are dim  And though I know what must be done  I always feel that loaded gun  The push to work, this call to act For naught fulfills a ghost’s contract Forever now, forever then, Armed with paper, bladed pen No fear of future, charge ahead … More Mission

Go…

My head’s above the water That drowning feeling, gone A year point five has passed The dark before the dawn I know its up to me now, To act, to make her proud No longer shall I question Why the pain was ere allowed Instead my eyes shall focus On this path that’s clear ahead … More Go…

The Wall

I think its time For far too long Neglect I have This useful blog   A journal it is Its purpose, clear Therapist, counselor My shelter from fear   For only this place Can I share the “real” And only here Can I truly feel   For when I walk Outside this door The world shall … More The Wall

Love Life

I bet you’re all like me And you really couldn’t care About the fame and fortune You just wish that life was fair So one day I decided To quit The System, Inc. And go off all alone So I could ponder and could think I learned a lot about me ‘Twas so much I … More Love Life
