Breaking all the shackles
Throwing away all the chains
that were holding her
she finally got rid of the pain
She drew strength
just from within
that was the day she found herself
and realized chasing dreams was not a sin
was not her wish anymore
focusing on herself
became her aim of soul
It was very taxing
To identify her tr...

For a poem about motivation
I find myself lacking real inspiration.
After a period of procrastination
It’s become a source of great frustration.
Is this real artistic creation
Or just intellectual masturbation?
But following quiet contemplation
I had a sudden revelation:
What I am lacking is

As always he was relaxed and confident,
smiling, and with good reason - he always beats me
My normal strategy is damage limitation
Today was different, I had motivation
I hadn't played for a month
I was feeling good, no aches and pains
I had a new racquet with tight strings
I had new tennis shoes
I had nothing to lose
It started well - I took the first game to love...

Letter to you,
Words of wisdom,
If I may.
Don’t fall for the irony
That my reflection
Lacks a map of my life.
My beautiful child,
Let me remind you,
That every time you smile,
Every drop of laughter
That you place in this world,
That people do
Amazing things each day.
Now not to di...

I think that you are quite unique,
From ear to ear, then down to feet
Sat atop your mind you speak,
Sometimes funny, sometimes sweet
Lots of people seem the same,
They live their lives and play their games
Now and then they use their brains
But not too often, ain't that insane?
You are you and that's what matters
So ignore, the chitter chatter
Small minded t...

Alchemy accumulations occult objects
obviscation oral affinitiess
hallowed articulating implements
scaring the face
chrurning the deep richness pulled to the skin layers of detritus
masticated long passed
harrowing seed bed preped
rain sun evenly scaled
else scalded or overasp...

Don't forget the reason why they fought
Don't forget the lesson that was taught
Buried so deep into the earth
We call them layers of our foundations
The past to our future and the taint of our present
Our ancestors, falling forefathers and delicate mothers
Making moves to the hills
Making mountain from valley
Making home where we go
We are making moves for th...

Take your time
Don't just try to rhyme
Put meaning into every line
No, it doesn't have to come out right
Every piece reviewed and refused can later be renewed
Break it down and then stick it together with crazy glue
Don't mind if they call you crazy - you
You are an idealist in the realist eyes
But they fail to realize
Reality is dynamic

Thiller like Mike Jack
PG-13 Comedy - Captain Jack
Eyes on the sparrow
Keep on movies
Keep on movies
A mystery adventure of the first world war
History keeps on moving
But you keep on movies
Hours of our lives in front of a screen
Taste not, ...

No matter how harsh the road might be
At least I walk upon it
No matter how harsh the last day was
At least the next day greets me
No matter how dark the day might be
At least there is still day
No matter how deluded, horrible,
Sadistic or rude people are
At least there are still people
No matter how they might make me feel
At least I can still feel

The time of labor start once one clocks in
as the money is important for survival.
Better to have it than being flat broke.
Despite what those on the outside peeping in may say,
this man right here isn't flipping patties for nothing.
For he longs to return to his life back home,
which ran smooth like molasses
then snapped in half like a pair of glasses.
As the infallible re...

Why do we worry so much about tomorrow;
When we can do so much today.
Why do we cry for those who are leaving;
Forgetting the ones who stay.
Why do we long for that which we cannot have;
Without appreciating what we already possess.
We live life in a rush and often miss out so much,
We dwell on dreams and mistakes;
And live the present in a haze.
Take a pause and feel th...

Hope I make the most of my gifts.
I'd be damned if I stayed the same person I was a year ago
Willing to work for mine, fuck a handout.
Whether it be a full-time nine to five or freelance, I'm gunning
for the top where I oughta be.
Not a rapper, just a brother presenting a gift for the world to see
possibly change someone's life.
All I want is for my family and my girlfriend t...

The morning, crisp and broken by the curfew
Of rising larks and pigeons in the choir,
Its breaching sun is bursting through the grass dew
And thinning out the misty dawn's perspire.
Many rest upon their linen sheets around
And you, the only currently arise,
Solo is your ally when breaking the ground;
Undistracted, undisturbed - your alibis.
Your muscles twitch uncertain of their purpose,
Or whether purpo...

I break everything I touch; At first seemingly simple- But soon too much, For my games are so nimble. My feelings out of reach- always too far to touch. And not made known through speech; I am an observer- I keep my distance; I am not a conformer- And at times lack resistance. I speak my words carefully, I am a reformer- And I shall go about it tastefully, Though always be straig...
