"Never Limit Yourself"

 
You can do anything you want
if you put your mind to it.
Don't let anyone talk you down
by discouraging you from even trying.
Trying is just an attempt.
There are no limits to the amount
of attempts one needs to achieve.
Everyone is built differently
and everyone goes at different speeds.
Stop timing thRead full post »

"All We Have Is This Moment"

 
We know that life is fleeting.
What we have can be taken away
at any given time.
All we have is this moment.
That's why I'm rather trepid.
I don't want to waste a minute
squandering it away
on foolish disagreements
or arguments.
We might never be in the place
we are right now.
I don't want to look baRead full post »

"Worries Are Just Thoughts"

 
You know what worries are?
Thy are just thoughts.
Our imagination can evoke
both negative and positive images.
Thoughts can never harm us.
They are not real; they are imagined.
We conjure up things in our mind
and then proceed to act as if those
things are really happening.
I won't tell you not to worryRead full post »

"The Hands"

My eyes were meant to see
what's before me.
My ears were meant to hear
anything that's near.
My hands were meant to hold.
Look how beautifully they mold
to fit into yours.
The thumb and fingers, all fours
entwine.
How they perfectly align.
The eyes, they might go blind.
The ears, might not quite hearRead full post »

"Of Being Human"

There is anguish and pain
because we all bear the stain

of being human.
But if I am to triumph over evil
I would have to rise above upheaval.
I shall not place blame!
I am one and the same.
Allow myself to look at my own image
before partaking in a scrimmage.
I'm no different than my brother.
I have sinne… Read full post »

"In My Pocket"

I wish that you were smaller.
Though your size suits you quite well.
Because if you were smaller
I could fold you up
to fit you in my pocket.
Then I could take you everywhere.
It's because it's hard to leave you!
It's so sad when I have to go.
I don't want to ever leave you
because I love youRead full post »

"DOORS"

There are doors build up all around us.
Some are shutting us out.

Some we're dying to get in.
And other ones are locked behind us.
We can't get out.
Neither do we let anybody in.
And I see too many doors that are open.
So I ask myself why I never enter in?
Is it fear that keeps me… Read full post »

"I Can't See End To End"

I think it's best not to ask why at times.
I'm always a person wanting to know.
But more often than not it's best
letting it go.
Sometimes there is no answer.
It's just the way things are.
Not that I believe in giving up.
I can't stretch out that far.

It's not that I'm not flexible.
I know just howRead full post »

"You Can't Play Catch-Up"

Time keeps marching through.
It's an never ending parade.

It will slip away from you
as the banners slowly fade.
You can never play catch-up
on a boat that's left the shore.
And you can never fill up,
anxious as a kid in a candy store.
Yet you're still trying hard
to get back part of yesterday!
The s… Read full post »

"Guts & Strength Combined"

I've seen you slumped, depleated.
Still on and on you go.

You can not be defeated.
It's not the way you know.
The only way to victory
is never to back down.
This is what you call liberty,
picking yourself up off the ground.
No matter how badly beaten,
no matter how tired and pale
it only tends t… Read full post »

"Cut To The Bone"

When I see you today
will the look on your face

give you away?
Even a whisper,
a soft undertone,
would sound a bit crisper,
chance I leave it alone.
But if I dare follow it
like a strong, gutsy gale
would you proclaim it?
Hence, so I not fail.
I see your eyes drain
like sands sifting through
an hourglass.
You hid… Read full post »

"If I Could Smoke You"

Standing alone the dust never fades.
Then wipe off the cobwebs
of your mother's grave.
'Cause she never did leave you
with anything less,
except maybe the emptiness
that fills up your chest.
Have you taken her with you?
Are you too paralyzed
to move as the wind
uncompromised?
If you're nothing but cinder
you're… Read full post »

"We Will Get There In The End"

You say
you don't know where we're going.

You're wondering
if we'll ever get anywhere.
But you know it makes me wonder
why people need to be
going somewhere.
As if having all these plans
makes everything alright.
People too busy making plans
losing what's already plain in sight.
I know
wherever we are going
we ar… Read full post »

"Bird With a Broken Wing"

I never had much confidence, so it seemed.
That is why I never pursued what I dreamed.
Even my own kin had always put me down.
And that's the reason I never got around.
 
I think that I would live my life with ease
if it was only myself I aimed to please.
If I don't find happiness… Read full post »

"STiff & Wooden"

Things that we find binding
that seem to hold us down

become so grinding.
We can't get around.
So we stay stuck
getting nowhere.
Stranded in the muck
we can't breathe the air.
And we can't see before us.
Our mind is going blank.
Standing still we scream and cuss,
with ourselves to only&… Read full post »

"Too Vested In You"

Things about you I take very personally.
There's just no normalcy 
when it comes to you.
I think I'm really screwed!
 
When you cut yourself I bleed.
Very strange indeed!
But I have to say it's true.
I'm too vested in you.
 
I trip over myself and stumble
because I just a… Read full post »

"I'll NEVER LET THEM GO"

What are dreams made of?
A push and a shove.
Well that's how dreams come true!
Get the gumption to break through.
I don't want to keep it only in my head,
or dream about it at night in my bed.
I want to be living it right now!
Gotta to make it real, somehow.
Who better to do that but me!Read full post »

"Slip Away"

"Slip Away"
 
When you're feeling weary
you have nothing to say.
The outside world looks cold.
You find yourself wistful
thinking of your younger days
when your body wasn't aching
to the bone.
You're get up and go
has got up and gone.
Suddenly you're not feeling
so strong.
Every… Read full post »

"Water, Air, Fire & Earth"

I want to live in water

because it doesn't weigh me down.

I can float just like an otter

and can easily get around.

 

I want to live in the air

because I love the view, the sight.

The world looks so much smaller up there

when you're higher than aRead full post »

"Elephants In the Sky"

They think they know you.
But they don't spend time with you.

And they don't see you, the real you,
the hurt and fragmented you.
It's so easy to judge others
by little bits and pieces that you
string along.
It's like putting some of the pieces
of a puzzle together
and thinking you know what the whole pic… Read full post »

"Standing Fall"

Some say it's only luck.
Like lightening struck

the ones they already knew.
As if it just happened
clear, right out of the blue!
 
They couldn't see behind them
the toil and the pain.
No one was there to remind them
of what they had to gain!
 
But no knows the difference

"GOOD MEN DON'T STAY DOWN"

Do not do anything haphazardly.
Anything worth pursuing needs a push.
Use all your strenght; give it a thrust.
Don't accept even a maybe.
A YES is a must!
There's no way you'll ever
get off of that ground 
if you lose any of your spirit
you'll sure to find falt, and back dowRead full post »

"My Face Gives Me Away"

I'm sorry that I cannot hide

what I’m feeling deep inside.

My face gives me away,

Whenever it is you come my way.

I cannot hide the warmth, the blush

when I feel the sudden rush.

On my face it surely shows.

My cheeksRead full post »

"What You Have Here Today"

What are you always stressing out for?
Taking on more and more.

Time, it slips away too fast.
You got to find a way to make it last.
Step away from it a bit.
You're always overdoing it!
What you have here today
by tomorrow could be taken away.
 
Take some time to smell the air.
Call a friend who's ve… Read full post »

"MISUNDERSTOOD"


I want to tell you how I feel but I am really scared.
Because sometimes my feelings push people away.
But they become overpowering when I hold them deep inside.
If you laugh at me I might cry.
Or you might be angry at what you come to know
if I explode and let them go.
I don't want to l… Read full post »
