Courage

 

Sitting in the exam hall,
exhausted,
mind bogged ;
with ratios, equations and curves,
I looked around in agony
to find a reason to continue,
just in time,
to find the invigilator roaming nearby,
carrying a stack of paper, with one hand.

I looked at him to find traces of,
misery, anger and hopelessness.
but,
a kind, encouraging smile
is what I got.
Which alone was enough
to ge...

Rebirth

An open book she had been
In her mind remained nothing
Maybe he couldn't guess anything
When she kept secrets from him
The lost look in her eyes
The stolen smile on the curve of her lips
It's not a love long forgotten
It's a love rediscovered once again
The moment she allowed the shackles to break
And run wild head on into her dreams
Many wont understand but who cares anyway
It's her wo...

An undervalued courage

It takes a daring woman to see the strength
of remaining soft in a hard world.
To love like you've never been hurt,
when your heart has been broken many times.
The greatest act of bravery is to recognize that
loving someone makes you vulnerable,
but refusing to stop.
To be courageous enough
to look that vulnerability in the face and say
"I will not back down,
no matter how many times you...

Brother

I wrote this piece while I was caring for my identical twin brother, following major surgery. Nearly everything you may have heard about identical twins is true.

 

Brother

The pain of being is not mine, but

my brother's. He cries and howls the Midnight

down into uneasy drowse

as the daylight lifts his covers

over swelling clouds of hurt.

Breaking, I balm him a little,

Whispers

entry picture

 

The truth to out

requires a spout,

not necessarily 

with a shout.

 

But tempered words

chosen tools,

planted, heard,

for Kings and Fools.

 

From tiny seeds

great forests grow,

so I will speak

the truth I know.

 

And heed you well 

who wish me hushed,

for it’s your voice

that will be crushed.

The stand up

entry picture

 

He’s the stand up comedian

who can barely stand at all,

a stage-light lit chameleon

teetering, about to fall.

 

He’s a sure shot laugh a minute

rapid firing from the tongue.

On targets there’s no limit,

you’re in trouble if you’re one.

 

He’s a jester and a thinker

loved and hated too,

a philanderer and drinker

who never pulled a punch he threw.

Sailing an Inland Sea

 

This poem is for all those still searching for home.

 

Sailing an Inland Sea

 

A stark white galley, sail aloft,

Knifes liquid mirrors, softly heaving,

Its pattering stem a story-teller

For fishers caught

On idle frontiers, poised

Between vaults of washed cerulean.

 

Its Master sighs to distant shores, yearning

For Phoenicia's Thalassa; a place of purple -

LIFE...

If there was no happieness
There would be nothing to enjoy.

If there was no sadness
There wouldn't be a care in the world.

If there was no friends
there would be loneliness everywhere.

If there was no uphill battles
there would be no courage
to keep on trying.

And if LIFE itself had nothing
imagine what LIFE would be....

Rekindle cake (plus video performance attached at bottom)

 

Rekindle cake 
 
You take a teaspoon of wisdom, add two ounces of brave.
Then you extract the past and the now try to save.
 
Six drops of humble mixed with fine compromise
And then stir in to taste, as you look in her eyes
 
One cup of loves flour, and two knobs…………… who love.
Then you ask for some help from the chefs up above.
 
A sprinkle of ...
