I bottle the wind 'tis but unclaimed potential contained within I cap the snow 'tis but Hate's wounded heart aching for Love to grow I bring the rain only to find there's no hail to gain I see what eyes see 'tis but a lens, an unfathomable marker whose waning light shines darker ...

Don't leave me please This of you, I beg Started the same way as others Out of the womb, I came Hours of labor and months of carrying It only attributed to your tremendous heart and strength Try my hardest to be the best man I can And keep your honor stretched in length Couldn't imagine my life without you But can't...

Legacy The flowers we blossom today Will be the the source of fruit from which the next generation will eat and flourish from We are all capable of leaving a blueprint But is that blueprint helpful? The next human is capable of helping you achieve and leave in your path-success But out of wonderment, will that same human...

The curtain of deceit hangs With the veil of Hell, she gains Cloaked in disguise he tries To all but pass through time Frozen with ill will, The other’s anger threatens to spill Trapped in a fantasy world of bliss ‘Tis but poison that ends her kiss The other’s intent never found out He merel...

Why am I here? I seem to tune out the world more and more… Why aren’t you near? I seem to push you away, Even when it hurts me to the core… Why can’t I live? The pressures of society seem to silence me… Why can’t I kill? My soul would never be free… If only the pain wasn’t the reason for my demise....

What’s on my mind? What are my thoughts? What is real? What is not? I’m not sure because I forgot. What time is it? What’s the time that it was? Questions. Questions. In my mind, Only a buzz....

Strewn across a path so wide Lay fragments that aren't easily hidden A puzzle so complex and impromptu That we never are fully able to see it To each their own because we all possess it Is this massive and important concept How you choose to present it is a choice of your own This thing called life: is a voyage ...

Sometimes I need you Although old and weathered with age Your beginning and latter strength has no end. You’re experiencing better days I’m reminded of you as I gaze— At the twilight Whose waning light I’ll soon miss Sometimes I need you Honestly, you’re the only one I’ve ever kissed Your...
