"When I Stress"

When I stress
I feel my brain functioning
less and less.
What's going on inside
is the walls are compressing
until they collide.
 
When I stress
I feel my behaviors start to
regress.
I return to a child-like state.
Everything gets accentuated.
What's small becomes the great.
 
When I stress
I f… Read full post »

"MY DECISION"

I must be careful about my decision.
It not only affects me.

Once decided there's no revision.
I can't turn back to the way things use to be.
The weight of the world lies in the consequences.
I must act responsibly. And consequently,
ask myself all of the questions.
And I must answer them honestly.

"THE BEAST UPON YOU"

I'm just an ordinary person
with an extraordinary life.

I wear a badge of courage,
but I still get discouraged.
We're under the same knife.
 
Do I disappoint you?
Strip your feelings bare?
Won't you please forgive me?
You know that I'm still bleeding.
I'd say I'm rather rare.
 
If I was to an… Read full post »

"I TOLD YOU"

You say our thoughts stand between us.
So opinionated am I.

I cast shadows of doubt in your reverie.
I don't neatly comply.
 
I told you I'm totally for you.
So strong in my standing am I.
Not transient like that of the wind
passing by.
 
You say I could be more of a whisper.
So thunderous, am IRead full post »

"WHAT ARE DREAMS?"

Today I move forward on my own.
I'll march into the great unknown!
I'll never look behind me; I won't look back.

Gonna plant these shoes on a different track.
It might be uncertain; I might be afraid.
But I'm gonna lead my own crusade!
No one's gonna stop me or stand in my way.
Not a moment too… Read full post »

"RESCIND"

Some of us are born into this world with plight.
And all of our life we must fight.

It's tough when you carry the cross all alone.
The weight of it makes your heart feel like stone.
But it's only a fragment, a pebble my friend.
Throw it back in water, rescind.
 
Don't let your mind fill you w… Read full post »

"When We Hit That Low"

It's despicable when we hit that low.
Crashing from the high I'm falling.

When I look there's nowhere to go.
It's really quite appalling!
And to think that I credited you so.
You didn't deserve it though.
 
It takes a tall man to be humble.
You fall a little short, I know.
You trip upon yoursel… Read full post »

"DREAM LIKE THE STARS"

Hush now, my lamb with the chatter.
Take in the white shroud of snow.
Ensconced in the blanket,
with your head lying next to me
nothing else here will matter.
Clear your mind; let it go.
 
Don't be afraid to sit in the silence.
Your mind's a treadmill racing mile afte… Read full post »

"Blessed Are Those Who Rose And Grew"

Lean on me, as I lean on you.
There's so much ahead for us to do.
Growth deepens from both sun and rain.
A loaf of bread starts as a single grain.
 
There's so much here to cultivate.
So patiently, am I to wait.
But I won't wait with idle eye.
A broken wing is one that shall never fly.

"ME & YOU"

Somtimes you just beat the odds!
 
Unshakeable, Unbreakable
that's what we are.
Who would have guessed
we would ever come this far?
Undeniable, Unbelievable
too.
We have been blessed
me and you.
It's Incredible, Inconceivable
just what we had to do.
Everyone was against us,
and yet....
didn't we push our way… Read full post »

"His Heart's A Cold Winter"

It is the human condition
to bear fragility and pain.

We place our hearts into remission,
Don't we do so? But in vain.
 
I see before me a man
beaten severely in his chest.
He has taken all he can;
he's no different from the rest.
 
To  redeem himself
from his anguish and his… Read full post »

"THERE'S BEEN A CHANGE IN YOU"

When I look at you I see someone new.
But your voice is no different; your looks are the same.

You have the same body held up in the same frame.
There's nothing even different in the things that you do.
But something I swear has gone quite askew!
Try as I can, this I just can't construe.

"THE CLOCK DOES HAVE A FACE"

Maybe you took for granted
that the clock does have a face
as you're searching high and low
running place to place
Did you expect time to stand
completely still?
as you go about your business
of your own free will
Those fragile hands that hide
under the glass
you think they're moving slow
but how quick thRead full post »

"NO MAN UNTO HIMSELF"

No man is an island.
No man stands alone.
Though pride takes the highland.
A man is not made out of stone.
He might carry himself very well
through his arduous journey.
But as he unleashes his mind he shall not dispel
that when he is at his own mercy
than he shall burn in his own hell.

"JUST BE WHO YOU ARE"

It's your time to shine.
I hope that you find

your dreams coming true.
I already see the changes in you.
It took some time to get it right
Now you're basking in the light.
Just be who you are;
you're gonna go far.
You're my shining star!
 
You're a star baby!
just be who you are.
This time you'll … Read full post »

"FAITH RODE THROUGH"

I was caught on a lavender whiff.
Something soft blown in the air.

I inhaled; took in quite a sniff.
There was something there!
At first it felt like a dream.
But to affect one senses
is a little extreme!
I let down all of my defenses
and followed it though.
 
The mist from the fog
gave such… Read full post »

"THE DANDELION"

Like a dandelion you're defiant;
Don't they always cut you down!
But you shoot right back up
out of the ground,
so headstrong and noncompliant.
 
They can't mow you away,
tough little weed.
You've risen up soft, floating fluff.
Blowing in the wind superfluous seed.

"I CHALLENGE YOU"

The stuggles that you face
shall put you in your proper place.
I challenge you!
And though they make you humble,
they shall not make you crumble.
I challenge you!
All your worry and your fear
lies on the surface as veneer.
I challenge you!
Underneath lies something real
made of st

"THE OTHER SIDE"

Help me get over to the other side
Before I die! Before I die!
Upon angel wings am I to glide
Oh what a ride! Oh what a ride!
Soft and smooth, so effortless
Is thy caress! Is thy caress!
Silken milk, thy lips to mother's breast
I've been blessed! I've been blessed!
Heaven plays its harpsichords
Oh danceRead full post »

"LIVING LIFE IN HELL"

You ask me why you must go on hurting.
I tell you; look to the sky nothing is for certain.

When rain clouds come you're lost with no umbrella.
Unaccompanied, you're singing a cappella.
 
I wish I could save you from yourself.
You only turn to me becasuse there's no one else.
We're born alone… Read full post »

"ABANDONED"

A  heart breaks.
In only a moment

it takes.
Someone ends up crying.
This wretched heart
knows not
its part.
Sadly, so  complying.
By God is it time
we're only buying?
Abandon thee forsaken?
After such a arousal
thee have waken.
And then to leave it stranded!
Does one not see
what thee has abandoned?
Callou… Read full post »

"PAINTED DOLL"

You don't see the fragile child in me
washed up in ambiguity.

Is it just a deserted body there
who was once young and fair?
I was a painted porcelain doll
the cracks upon my face like scrawl. 
Whose dust collected as a cloak
unravelling around the yoke.
Poor little child, tattered and frayed

"I CAN FLY"

Oh look at those hideous, cumbersome ears
that bog down the slow moving pachyderm.

He's ridiculed and jeerded by his peers.
The little poor fellow, treated so unjust
has such an arduous journey, weighed down
that he never quite learns how to trust.
He's not like the others who move swift.
Ostracized an… Read full post »

"THE SPIRIT SOARS"

If my ankles were weighed down by granite
My mind was floating on another planet

The body was wasted and decrepit
Poor slob, you'd think I'm wretched
But one must not choose in his wisdom to ignore
The infinite ability that makes the spirit soar!
The rising, supportive hold of the mast
In fierce d… Read full post »

"HEART TO HEART"

Last night we had a heart to heart.
I was wise to realize

my role, my part
when going over everything
with a fine-tooth comb.
Things you said played in my head
once had driven me far from home.
 
It's times like these, so intense
when we search ourselves
and drop pretense
that deep… Read full post »
