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

Committed

Committed, so deep in it I will die before I quit it Its both Dark and light my mind’s mitosis, but you all already know this All these Ideas pouring out, overwhelming my head’s funnel My Hands are moving so damn much I’m thirty-five with carpal tunnel And I Experiment with rhythms I play around … More Committed

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 Just Saying

“Just move on, just forget, let it go and turn the page” “That is how you’ll get by now, for life is naught more than a stage” Such advice from those in life, they mean well yet misunderstand Closure quite can bring respite, and things aren’t had ‘till they’re in hand Seeing is believing, at … More A Just Saying
