An Honest Plea

I want to do an exercise. An exercise on open-mindedness, and whether or not our species is capable of un-conditioning their minds from the dogmatic stranglehold that “society” has upon them. So here goes. Picture yourself sitting in a chair in your living room. You’re there all by yourself, with nothing whatsoever to do. No … More An Honest Plea

One Shot

What can a person do when raised by words on different page? I’ve said it once before and once again it I will say My father was the devil, but my mother was a saint They made half a demon, half an angel, when they mixed my DNA Knowing this is how I keep the … More One Shot

The World I wish

The world I wish for is not real It has no commercial appeal Built upon a land that feels Not what spins on those black reels All measured by one simple way What’s deep inside, and not portrayed Opinions mean no more to me Than living life emotion-free Knowing someone costs a lot Its time … More The World I wish

A Step at a Time

I ask Him where this road will go He answers, saying “I don’t know” “Your path: its paved by you alone” “And every act lays one more stone” My mind, it mulls these words he spoke So many thoughts they do provoke No longer shall I wonder “where” For its the “now” that gets me … More A Step at a Time

Hid Intentions

Never have I ever wrote a word I don’t remember, sitting silent serving purpose in the spaces that they’re set I know because I inked them from the places that I thinked them which at times might seem erratic, but I never forget Forget the possibility that if not you it must be me, but … More Hid Intentions

Shooting Stars

So many things happen in life That cause us pain, anguish, or strife Things that make us question Him Be it loss, or love, or sin Moments pass when we’re astray Confused, consumed, cornered, at bay Yet if we can stay the course There exists an age old force Something that comes from within But … More Shooting Stars

The Spark

Tipping points Just what are they? A phenomenon that doesn’t play They serve as words you need not say Their meaning scoffed, and tucked away It’s easy to go through the motions As if we’ve brewed naive cold potions That way we can brush the rug But really it’s a hole we’ve dug It’s effortless … More The Spark

Fitting In

Squares in squares, circles sit, triangles are full of it They all know just what they are; defined, described, a shooting star They all have a place to be A place that holds them, place that keeps Keeps the hardened world outside The high, the low, the any tide Normalcy is what they’re fed Waking … More Fitting In

The Book of Job

Never have I ever longed for cold and bleak December, no, that month is writhe with all my plight, it holds the worst things I remember There is but one day I yearn, it is on the twenty-third, ‘tis a day when children pray and do things that which they all learn But underneath that … More The Book of Job

My Small Sparrow

Days of old, days anew Days we have to think things through There is no shame in loss, regret We do the things we can, and yet Something else is always there Something else to burden, bear Something that we set our eyes Something reaching to the skies No one knows what lies ahead The … More My Small Sparrow

Communicate

Ravens speak darkness while Frost speaks of snow But tormented minds share a likeness, you know Rather than rhythm repeating tempo I’ll ink what I think as the rules I let go Words are not wisdom they’re just thoughts that we think And letters are naught but concepts that you shrink Shrink into something that … More Communicate

Look at Me

Time, its not so timeless And things never seem to change Who we are and what we do It’s stone, not rearranged We live, we laugh, we love, we play We fight, we kill, we fear, we hate Never has it mattered what it is, the day and age Things are all that separate the … More Look at Me
