My Idols

My closest friends, they’re here, I know Em, and Fitz, and Frost, and Poe They do not sit and dine with me They reside in my mind, you see   We write, we wonder, work and play We converse every single day Whispers in the wind and skies The glint that’s deep inside my eyes … More My Idols

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

One Day

Listen, can you hear it? Such beauty, violin It’s strings are humming softly To remind us where we’ve been Such time it took to get here So far, the journey seemed So quick were we to make it We’ve forgotten why we dreamed Our life was so much simpler Our souls, they all were freed … More One Day

The One: First Entry

Can we be honest with ourselves for a moment? I want to talk about some things. Things like Facebook. Twitter. Instagram, perhaps. Hell, even Tinder…anything that lets people advertise who they are (or at least who they want to be) without having to concern themselves with the real world. Yeah, I know. It’s not easy … More The One: First Entry

Wanderlust

Wanderlust, traveler, perhaps even gypsy So many labels they’ve applied, but in reality Living life is all she wants, it’s really that simple Her spirit shines through both her smile, and her cute cheek dimple Life is meant for living, yes, a thing she truly gets Singing, dancing, spinning round, she loves without regrets Always … More Wanderlust

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

Hide & Seek

Sweaty brow, aching back, home packed lunch and the sleepless nights That’s how things were done when people worked, reaching up for higher heights Dirt and grit, skin and bone, not a moment thrown into the waste Men would own up to the challenge, no obstacle they wouldn’t face Things got done, cities built, on … More Hide & Seek

Alone

So many things in life I see, they’re happening all around me. The love, the kids, the joy I see; they sooth my heart and set me free. The warmth I feel when I emcee is cherished oh so fervently, and even when they disagree I only smile, lovingly. Under this Umbrella Tree sits my … More Alone

The Forge

Silence sits so still inside, supplying souls so simplified, the subjects seem to mystify the saints that I’ve since satisfied.  Now that I have shed my pride I ask if doors now open wide, and though the answer is implied I fear its fake; that they all lied. There’s no direction, there’s no guide that … More The Forge

My Biography

Alone in darkness, thoughts embark, and though this page displays my mark, nameless I shall now remain as embers’ heat begin to wane. Uncertainty is close behind, forever shrouding this dark mind. I fear I may have intertwined the light that shines so bright behind the madness in this room upstairs with other shapes; those … More My Biography

Make it Count

Every single second Each and every single day Is a blessing given to us For us to use and play   Life is but a moment A brief wrinkle in time A canvas to be colored In or outside of the line   You see, its not a rigid path Through which all are meant … More Make it Count

Pain

Try to focus elsewhere Than the hurt that’s in my vein I’m cheating on the healing For I’m sleeping with the pain I want it gone tomorrow But tonight I need the strain It captivates, it motivates It keeps me in this lane What would I be without it? Would I be the same? Continue … More Pain

Leadership

True intentions lie within But as you play the game of sin The dirty secrets start to out Revealing what you’re all about It’s happened since The dawn of time And as I write This lovely line There’s folks that think They dodge the fray But we all know They’re in the play Act 2, … More Leadership

Pyramid

Pain It fills my veins Evades the remedies Reaches all my extremities A life of love so temporary, I allude I opt instead for darkness, and solitude Pen and pad are all I want, they’re all I need Though I try to hide the pain, each day I grieve Search for calm and peace of … More Pyramid
