Influencer

It relieves to think things out How everybody gained their clout Well maybe not all of the crowd Just all the ones that they allowed Buying likes like it’s a game Admit it love, you’re all the same You act and you pretend to care But there is nothing ‘side of there You are empty, … More Influencer

Lost

Suns can set horizons high And yet we know, the time is nigh Drifting ever closer, near The things I’ve heard I can’t unhear There is always time and place You write things you want to erase Just to find the pencils broke What’s spoken always remains spoke If only it could go away If … More Lost

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

The Lonely Violin

The Lonely Violin I want so much to leave these things I want so much to still these strings I want, so much, a calm within Please slow your tempo, violin Your music brings the light of day I know this, love, it leads the way The songs you sing are beauty, yes Yet torment … More The Lonely Violin

My Last Prayer

Are you there, Lord? I need to know I need the truth I need it so I do not know if acts of mine Are of free will, or yours divine The more I ask myself of this The less I think that you exist Why won’t you simply speak to me? Why won’t you … More My Last Prayer

Haters, Explained

I’d like to take a moment to discuss the concept of “haters”. Because I believe I have figured something out that makes a lot more sense to me now than it did years ago when I just got started into writing stuff. Human beings are animals. I think we can all come to terms with … More Haters, Explained

Speak a little louder ya’ll, it’s kinda hard to hear you now All these voices screaming, shouting, everybody’s crying foul “They don’t like me!” “They’re so hateful!” “This is how I want to live!” Let me dig a hole (or hill?) for all the fucks I want to give Look. 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

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

I Don’t Rap

Cars and clothes are cool, I guess They’re great when you want girls and sex It must be nice to be so dumb When every line you write is numb   Numb from all the things we feel And all the shit that makes life real Bigger houses, bigger banks You paid her tab? Hey … More I Don’t Rap

Critics

Listen, critic, please understand Read these words, and watch my hand You joke about these poems I write You say they’re rigid, and won’t take flight Let me explain one thing to you You clearly don’t get what I do My words are raw, they don’t need flair And honestly, I do not care I … More Critics
