We Stand

Image
We stand, quivering
Facing the winds
Our defense
Our branches
Flexible, spreading
Raised to the heavens.
Our hard trunks
Gnarled with age
Scarred, bent.
We bow to life's
Relentless lashing
Swiping the ground
Like Weeping Willows
Begging the gods
For mercy.
We endure
We break
We lose limbs
Yet we stand 
Come rain
Hurricane
Lightening
We stand facing the winds 

Just Breathe

Image
A new planet was discovered It's not close, they never are I wish I could go there Make it my new home Just by myself All alone  In a planet like Earth No other human beings No other beings No countries No wars Just me No worries No to do lists Just me Just to breathe Just to exist I wounder How would it feel

If there is God

Image
You wanted me to believe in God Told me I've been punished For not believing You told me you loved me Yet you broke my heart. Would you come back to tell me What it's like?  Are you in heaven? Did you gaze upon your lost loves? Did they remember you? Do you think of me sometime? Would you come back in a dream? As a spirit A phantom As a breeze A gust of wind? Come back and tell me Make me a believer Give me the light If you can, if you would If there is God. 

Heartache

Image
Reach inside my chest 
Pull out my heart
Let me see if I can tell
Why it's bleeding misery
Maybe if I see the wound
I can understand 
Don't even want to admit to myself
I'm a coward, a fool, a hypocrite  
I know why it hurts
Every time he says he loves me
I scream NO NO NO 
Don't
You can't love an imposture
All your love
Your devotion
Your sacrifice
All for a fool
Like me
Wasted dreams
Wasted life

Let The Ligt in

Need to cleanse my life, Mind, Spirit. It’s time to end This aimlessness Senseless being Drifting Weightless Ungrounded life. I need to cast away the shadows The doubts The anguish. I need to open the windows Let the light in Embrace love, life, And redemption.

Blessing

Image
A small cell Dark, cold, bare… A small vent that lets a faint light in. A rumbling sound coming from far far away… Getting closer and closer Suddenly, A crashing BOOM A big bolder chokes the small hole Leaving only a sliver of light. The battering sound is deafening Rocks fall tumbling down Utterly closing the vent. And then There is total darkness… Dirt pours in filling every craves The air thick with dust. Suffocation is slow, numbing,  Clouding the mind… There is nothing to see, To breathe, To think. Death comes As a last peaceful blessing. 

Life

Life

If life throws punches at you, You spring back up if you are grounded If the winds of fortune blow you off course You find your way if you have a goal You find the truth amid the lies if you have never been lied to You forgive easily if you have known forgiveness You take the high road when people are petty When you know benevolence You love all people if you are loved.
But sometimes you want to stay down and cry And sometimes you want to stay lost Sometimes you believe the lies because the truth hurts Often it’s hard to forgive evil When hurt by petty you sink down low to hurt back And some people just don’t deserve to be loved
I’m tired of standing up Of choosing the righteous path I want to forget reality and escape to a fantasy world I want to strike back like a venomous snake
To punch below the belt And show my hatred to those who deserve
