The things that never will (or was it the Will that never thinks? Honestly it's been so long that I forgot)

I stargaze in my own room,
with thought of holding you.

The melody of songs I don't know,
make me wonder what there is to behold.
With a gentle laugh,
I stand starstruck by your words.

Like a child I stand below it all,
seeing colour that aren't letting you go,
as the stars paint a portrait of your smile,
I am caught stargazing in my own room.

And the sky turns back to white,

Résumé

Résumé / Michael Kwack

 

Love is,

like art,

dull without passion.

 

Marriage is,

like enterprise,

tough without fortune.

 

Home is,

like chair,

harsh without comfort.

 

Life is,

like sleep,

dry without dream.

 

Death is,

like letter,

empty without story.

 

Will is,

like poem,

absurd without wit.

Will

Will you raise your voice for the oppressed

Will you demand Governmental redress

Will you speak on things that truly matter

Will you allow this illusion to truly shatter

Will you turn up your volume for the silenced

Return of the Will

Will lurks somewhere

in all our indecision.

A will too weak to stir

our flesh to action.

A will enfeebled

by the trials of youth.

A will deformed

by dirty songs and dreary.

What will steel the will

this world has robbed us of?

 

We need a war

to steel the will again.

I Aim

I Aim

 

I aim to be as true to all 

As I have learnt from being small

Tell it like I see it when I'm clear

Zip my mouth if I'm not my dear

 

Now as time rolls on I find I still

Have a very strong unbending will

None too shy to state my case

Toe to toe, face to face

 

Tempering the above with concern

For others views where I may learn

More about this world ...
