Reflections

A one way mirror, it must be For them, it’s clearer seen than me I look to my left I look to my right I know not where to walk tonight Should I take this path? Should I go there? Feign the footsteps of who dare? Nothings known on a false throne Uncertainty is all … More Reflections

Christmas: 2021

‘Twas the night before Christmas And all through the house Not a creature was stirring …except Missus Clowse “Get up you old fat man!” “You’ve a job to do!” “Gifts don’t wrap themselves!” “So stop hitting ‘Snooze’!” And from that point on This old Santa could tell That this one year’s Christmas Was gonna be … More Christmas: 2021

Worlds of War

With the birds I share this view, indeed Yes it’s lonely, but it’s the only Only thing I seem to see Flying high up in the sky Looking down on things below See amidst, we’re so transfixed On that which sells tix to the show And yet if We flipped the switch Then maybe we … More Worlds of War

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

We Are One

Though you are gone, I won’t forget For you are still among us, yet Whispering your wise old words As I sit listening, among the birds I look to you. Look up, you see? I stand before you on my knee Grateful for the words you gave On how to love, how to behave Tacitus, … More We Are One

Cancel Culture

Convictions rest on strongest wills But why make mountains out of hills? Declaring war for stubborn sakes And making oceans out of lakes Despite the things you think you mean That’s not a river, it’s a stream The water’s current needs to slow Know you reap what things you sow These thoughts, they drift inside … More Cancel Culture

No one really cares about … More 123

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

Welcome

Welcome to the melancholy mansion that makes up my mind Watch your step when walking in, the doors will close themselves behind This house don’t like it when the people come and watch and look within. The floors all creak and make knees weak when falsehoods enter with their sin No ones bested one mere … More Welcome

A New World

A New World You and I know things that we sweep under carpet, here and now You and I know things are coming that will stir the idle crowd I think I needith not make mention of what worldly change I speak For all of you, if signs are true, are stronger when you’re with … More A New World

Alone

Joy, it brings, to hear this sound It’s absence speaks so much, profound Silence Yes, I hear it so I hear it played from piano Every key strikes perfect chord Every note, ordained by Lord Come calmly, please, for you must see The thing that plagued, but then saved me Over there, there sits a … More Alone
