We Stand





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





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





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

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

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

SUPER NOVA


You came on the wings of an angel
Soft, pink, and lovely
 Your big dark eyes wise
Your innocent smile knowing.
You filled our hearts with unimaginable
Tenderness and love.
Your little perfect hands reaching
For our fingers to grasp.
You slept on our breasts trusting
We won’t move until you wake. 
You came to bring us giggles
That resonates like bells.
You brought sunshine to all our days.
You love with abundant
And we go wild with happiness.
We orbit around you
Like you are the Sun.            
You are a blessing
We dare we deserve.
You have become the air
We need to breathe.
You are life
You are light
You are love…
