"Your Debut"

Freedom is something
you give to yourself.

You got to learn
to trust yourself.
Your the only one
holding yourself down.
Isn't it time for you
to get off the ground?
 
Just spread your wings.
Learn to fly!
Are you afraid
to reach that high?
No one can take it
away from you.
I think it's time
for y… Read full post »

ON LOVE.......

I am no expert on the matter of love but feel I have learned enough to contribute my 2 cents! I've only had 3 relationships in my life and as I reflect on them on this rainy afternoon I felt the need to share it with you.
 
The first relationship was whatRead full post »

"Little Reprieve"

There's no place to hide
when you wear your heart outside.

Vulnerable is the one who sends
a purple heart that far extends.
 
There's little reprieve
when your hearts on your sleeve.
It's inside out for sure,
exposing the pain you must endure.
 
There's no place to run
when yo… Read full post »

"Having You Here With Me"

Walking on a sunny afternoon.
Talking, time slips away too soon.
Something's warm here besides the weather.
Happiness is bringing us together.
No place I'd rather be
than having you here with me.
 
Thinking when I'll see you again.
Remembering of our time until then.
I'm flying higher than a bird oRead full post »

"This Little Waif"

Though the past is gone
it still carries on.

But it's deep inside
under buried pride.
When you're your only friend
you must defend
the wounded heart.
So you play it smart.
 
If I put myself out there
how would I fare?
I've been all alone.
Has it really shown?
Inside of myself
I could not excel.
Yet it kep… Read full post »
The anger hides
the emptiness inside.
But if the truth did show

I guess you would know
of the displaced self.
When there's no one else
who could take control
as I hand my soul.
 
Though I might be blind
I am not resigned.

What I do not know
shall not be my foe.
I'm too strong to quit
or gi… Read full post »

"THE MAVERICK"

To Jim With Love!

 A strong defender
A rebel mender

A man who stands
just for the cause
who fought for his right
without praise or applause
A noble one of his breed
who he himself put aside
for others in need.
One who seeks truth
completely unbound
and fearlessly follows the path
no matter thRead full post »

"The Planes Of My Own Depth"

When I'm inside myself
I almost lose my breath.
I'm reaching into the planes
of my own depth.
You might be standing there
but I'm miles away.
My head's not with you;
my thoughts have strayed.
And you're wondering why
they left.
I'm cast in a mold;
you only see me as bereft.
And you're seaching
the receRead full post »

"All You Have To Do Is Wait"

Is there too much piling on your plate?
Is the time for you growing late?

Think you're never going to set things straight?
All You have to do is wait.
 
Troubles seem to inflate.
I know the strain of all that weight.
You mustn't let that dictate.
All you have to do is wait.
 
Don't let something… Read full post »

"STRETCHED BEYOND ITS MEANS"

How much do we have to  stretch?
We're pulled apart at both extremes.

This elastic is going to snap,
from being stretched beyond its means.
It's so tightly drawn, so taut.
Have we each abandoned our own dreams,
that we can't even hold our shape now.
Losing e… Read full post »

"LOVE IS ALL AROUND YOU"

How is it worth we measure?
In simple moments to treasure.

God has sent his love.
Why do we fall short of
hope and expectations?
Look at Gods creations!
Are we so consumed with duty
that we refuse to see the beauty?
 
Love is all around you.
Look and it will astound you.
The birds sing you their… Read full post »

"High On Blue Mountain"

We climbed high on blue mountain.
And I was so afraid to fall.

My hands, slippery skins of peel
on the face of that stone wall.
So I climbed with apprehension.
And the air kept growing thin.
I was choking on my own distraction,
fighting hard against the blustery wind.
 
I do… Read full post »

"It's Something To Be Refined"

In looking for some parity

 I'm hoping to gain clarity.
It's not often plain.
Its very measure hard to explain.
I think that we need levity,
some light-heartness, some brevity.
The weight of it holds us down;
it's breadth is so profound.
I think its very existencRead full post »

"That's What Makes The Mystery"

I don't think we can simplify
what we are; don't it seem?

So many people amplify
just one aspect of us that they deem.
We're so much of a complexity
and such is still left undefined.
It draws on the perplexity
in other peoples minds.
Yet that's what makes the mystery!
We're so unique,… Read full post »

"IT'S OURSELF WE ARE HURTING"

Why do we beat ourself senseless
and cover with pretense?

So scared and defenseless,
erecting walls at our own expense.
Then hardened by the artillery,
we hide and we cower
searching for validity.
Yet we'll never find the power
because our insides our sour.
 
We've this heavy… Read full post »

"DIRTY LOAD"

I'm some dirty laundry
Spinning
through each cycle
without end.
Tossed
in filthy water
Impounded
In a machine I am penned.
Just a dirty load
Floating
particles are
swimming loose.
Shaken
the machinery
banging on the floor
like a rickety caboose!
Put through the wringer.
Thrown
and thrashed
all about.
Hitting every… Read full post »

"CYCLONE IN MY MIND"

Like a sandstorm in the desert
you're as blind as you can be.
The wind is whipping through you.
Your eyes are crusted over; 
there's no way you can see.
It's spinning you in circles
like a cyclone in your mind.
The harder you fight to get through it
the tighter it shall wind.
Stranded in a mass ofRead full post »

"I'LL OPEN UP MY EYES"

It's such a painful process
the way I tend to grow.

No matter that I'm cautious
it still affects me so!
The more that I put into it
the less I have an out.
So I pledge my life to it.
Yes! I'm that devout.
Each hurt a new lesson,
one to slowly learn.
Each path a discretion,
a choice… Read full post »

"OLD TIN LIZZY"

Winding, Winding up
tighter than a top.

Held down
at the bottom.
Pushed beyond the limit.
Pulled in every direction.
Head is Spinning
Dizzy.
My God!
She's in a Tizzy.
Work her up
like lather.
Doesn't really matter.
Dazed!!
This track is quite a maze.
Running all Amok.
Think you got stuc… Read full post »

"CHANGE IT ALL"

These days are filled up with such worries.
I'm wound up tighter than a yo-yo on a string.

There's never enough time to cut loose.
Wish these arms were a pair of wings.
 
Don't you somehow want to change it all?
Be a kid flying high on a swing.
Wasn't there a time when we felt invincible?
Never tho… Read full post »

"AND SO I BEGIN"

There's something here that's changed.
I'll admit it's feeling quite strange.

Just out of the blue....
It's disrupting everything I do.
Though precarious, I want to follow it more.
But I just can't tell you what for.
 
Something is calling; it's beckoning me.
It's turning me wardward; I see.
I'm going to… Read full post »

"A Day Alone With My Friend"

I'm dying to spend
a day alone with my friend,

outside in the breeze
overhead with a canopy of trees.
With love just to share
not a single care
do we take with us then,
just a day alone with my friend.
 
The sun is a tease;
we do as we please.
Walking along,
singing a song.
Alone with my friend;
we don't… Read full post »

"Just Like Last Night"

Something always gets in our way.
Same shit, different day.
Same shit, different day.
Nothings ever right;
Constantly we fight.
But then last night
you held me so tight.
We didn't fight!
We didn't fight!
 
Why can't we be as carefree
Just like last night.
Just like last night.
Can't you see how good&nbRead full post »

"THE MOLE"

Digging a hole that you yourself deprave.
It's so dark, stenched and filthy,
in other words your grave.
Trying to claw your way out
because no one's reaching in.
The sides are covered in slime,
the grime of all your sins.
 
Standing all alone in your very own stew.
You tried to dish it out,

"A TIGER NOT A LAMB"

I dedicate this poem to three special woman I love.....Dr. Carol, Holly and myself!!!!
 
I see myself too complex
to be of the fairer sex.
Some same I'm overbearing,
that time with me is wearing.
I think I grew some balls
from taking one too many falls.
And so I often hide
the softer, gent… Read full post »
