"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.

"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 »

"They'd Be In Heaven"

I know if they could see,
look at things differently
they might believe in me.
If they could see
beyond the sky
they'd never ask why.
They'd be in heaven.
 
I know if they could hear,
become aware
they'd know that I am there.
If they could hear
what's very near
they'd never fear.
They'd be in heaven.

"It's YOU"

It's like searching the deep blue sea,
the lights on a bright marquee.
It's like climbing the higest mountain,
dancing waters from a high mouth fountain.
It's like walking miles in the desert sand,
as loud as a trumpet in a big brass band.
It's like reaching out to touch a full moon,
so intoRead full post »

"I See It As a Butterfly"

Some folks thought it best to describe it
what was the magic, the allure?
But even the best of wit
could never quite be sure.
 
It could not be bound by words,
a mystery that lies in dreams.
It's free and soars like a flock of birds,
flows as blue mountain streams.
 
Many scholars and poetRead full post »

"HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY"

I thought of going to the store.
Was going to buy a card for you.

And then I thought whatever for?
No one could come up with the words for you.
 
Not that I would want to be a bore,
I thought that I could best define you.
But as I thought about it more
I realized there is no… Read full post »

"Coins In a Fountain"

If days were coins in life's fountain
the first thing that I'd want to do
is to collect all the discarded ones.
And then I would give them to you.
 
Nickel and copper used for wishes
don't really make dreams come true.
But they're thrown with great care
in hopes that some day they do.
 
What I t… Read full post »

"It's All There In You"

Only you can make things happen!
Don't look at others to know what to do.

It might not seem clear which way to steer.
But the answers all lie there in you!
 
People keep searching for meaning,
not even knowing what's true.
Tap deep inside; awaken what's died.
You'll realize it's all… Read full post »

"Scavengers"

Be careful what you hunger for.
When wolves go scavenging for more
it leaves them blood thirsty,
heaving, winded, pursy.
Seething, rapacious devil eyes
wanting the world know not of compromise.
Lying in their own waste
their soul, their inner core, debased.
Their wanting never satiates their hunger,

"A New Way"

It's not your fault now baby.
You only know what you know.
I can't take that away.
But there comes a time now baby
when all that you've learned
just doesn't make sense today.
You need to find a new way.
A new way.
 
Yesterdays sorrow baby, left you in pain.
You couldn't feel the sun.
When you're stuck… Read full post »
