Scars

They’re carried each and every day, they never ever go away. I cannot seem to find a place where minds are clear and thoughts erased. They stay with me, they’re always there, it seems a saddened love affair. My heart is blackened when the air begins to flow with fervent prayer. The things I’ve done, … More Scars

The Truth

Never have I ever wondered what things lay in front of me, the futures not a question, I know exactly what’s in store for me. I don’t live for today, I live for forever; looking ahead with a clever grip on the trip that I’m about to take with whoever has the ability to sever … More The Truth

My Diary

My Diary I lay in this bed with these thoughts in my head, looking at the blood that I bled when these pieces of my heart were all shred. These nights tear me apart, make me wish I could go back and restart the life that I’ve led so I can sew together the dangling … More My Diary

Together

In my chamber, losing sleep Rocking, thinking, silently Watching broadcasts quietly Observe this world, so violently I wonder if the day will be When people live, peacefully Shedding war, with treaty No longer loving fearfully It all could change, if only we Would be the change we want to see We must admit, reluctantly To … More Together

Doubt

Some folks believe me Yet others still doubt It’s funny to me, really When I say what I’m about I’m climbing this here ladder Right in front of their blind eye Yet they still keep on hatin’ As if the fucks I give could fly So let me put this plainly These words, do not … More Doubt

You

What things go through your head When you lay down and no one is there? When you know that no one is listening Is it a dream, or perhaps a nightmare? Do you think of the rest of the world And how we’re all stuck in a cell? Or maybe those shoes you’ve been wanting … More You

My Dog is Famous

Oooookay! Where do I even begin? I suppose a little background context is a good place to start. So my dog, Mr Baxter, has a nasty habit of chewing his leashes. He’s pretty much the perfect pup outside of that one annoying, economically burdening trait. Most of my brainstorming for writing is done with a … More My Dog is Famous

Family Ties

It’s times such as these When you want to say please What more can I do? What else will appease? All you want is a pat Maybe “Hey, way to go” Or “I’m proud of you, son” “It’s hard work, that I know” But none of it fits Beyond all my wits I can’t do … More Family Ties

Become

Frustrating, it is To retreat to the hole As you narrowly focus On your one, divine goal A life you desire Yet you know you can’t grasp As attentions diverted  The white fence, it won’t last And how hard can it be When to God, you enlist  When you tormentingly believe  That He might not … More Become

The gloves are off!  It’s heating up And when you think They’ve said enough They bounce right back  To add a punch A right, a left This scribbling bunch Some shout, some SCREAM! Yet others wait Through subtle pokes  Their points, they bait Until they land  That final blow When socks blow off And minds … More The Writers Marquee
