Stillness

Stillness

 

Calm breeze passing through the chain link fence,

Peaceful rings from the neighbor’s chimes ,

This is the mood of stillness and I am fond of it.

Hunger

Hunger

 

It is those less fortunate who understand the term.

Yet,

It is those blind to it who will never learn. 

 

It is the little one with bones popping out of his skin.

Still,

Those with sealed hearts don’t care what happens to him.

 

It is the piercing jab into your stomach causing awful pain.

However,

Those with full bellies always find ways to complain.

Sensation

Sensation

 

Hairs jumping out of my skin.

It’s not what we do, it’s when.

 

I feel every stroke like a breeze.

Funny how you just know, exactly where to please.

 

It is skin to skin you and I crave.

If only this sensation was something, we both could save.

 

It is the small details that mean the most.

I see an angel, your body is just the host.

 

The sensa...

"Friend"

You say I empower,

Yet you've gone back for something sour.

You said you would never go back,

Yet you've been lured in by the same nick nack. 

 

You have regret in your eyes,

This I can see,

Why won't you listen to me?

 

Do not confuse the loneliness.

You heart will be hurt again.

Open your ears to my words, my friend.

 

Still, you have chosen to keep what yo...

CLOSURE

CLOSURE

 

The door was once open.

Now, it has been closed shut.

The string was a living thread.

Now, it has been sharply cut.

 

There is no question after this.

At this time, I have come to peace.

No more wrestling with the uncertainty.

At this time, I have tamed the beast.

You see, I am excited about this defeat.

From this, I am empowered to see more.

I have...

MAMO

MAMO (Gaelic for Grandma)

 

You represent the strength we all strive to possess.

You showed us all that you can do more with less.

 

I speak in admiration, you earned everything you worked for.

Just… another demonstration of the love you continued to pour.

 

Your smile and laugh filled each and every heart.

In everyone’s life here today, you played a significant part.

PROVISION

PROVISION

 

Between all the artificials,

You will find one that is official.

Between all the flakes,

You will find one that does not peel.

Between all who are unstabled,

You will find someone that is firm.

Between all who are violators of trust,

You will find someone that is capable of holding your heart.

Between the shallow and the selfish,

You will grasp one pers...

GREED

GREED

 

It is the outlined stamp pressed upon our soul.

It is the incestuous need to fill that empty hole.

 

For some, it is the desire to take more than needed.

For some, it is the tradition that they have been feeded.

 

I see it within myself and other humans time after time.

I see it in my daily tasks sign after sign.

 

The world has chosen to adhere to the desi...

PAIN

PAIN

 

Why is it that pain weighs more on the heart than anything else?

This is the cruelty that life continuously sells.

Where can I hide a boulder that can be easily seen?

For a forest has grown from my planting of a tiny bean.

Where shall I run to let the tears run dry?

Don’t spend the time my friends trying to find out the why.

For it is better to release what has been ...

FORGIVENESS

FORGIVENESS


 

My slate has been wiped clean.

I have been given a new chance.

There is no more stain to be seen.

And now, please excuse me, I must dance.

WHERE ARE YOUR EYES?

WHERE ARE YOUR EYES?

 

Are your eyes focused on his smile?

Are your eyes on her pure blonde hair?

What a lifeless moment you both now share.

 

Is that a couple at the table?

They would rather idolize their phones?

The only thing they want to hear are their own ringtones.

 

Shouldn’t they be talking their ears off?

How long have they been in the tunnel?

Their onl...

ETERNAL ROMANCE

ETERNAL ROMANCE

 

Blessed is my King,

For I have been saved.

Blessed is He,

For my road has been paved.

 

Praise be to my Lord,

For I am eternally His son.

Praise be to my Savior,

For he is the victor and the battle is won.

SPECIAL WOMAN

SPECIAL WOMAN  

 

I crave your very presence.

To the point where I am starving inside.

Your touch is the greatest of Christmas presents.

In you, my heart has chosen to confide.

 

Your smile radiates far more than a thousand suns.

To the point where shades don’t block the glow.

Your heart is strong enough to carry a thousand tons.

Because of you, I would live in fire o...

THE SUN

THE SUN

 

Radiant waves pierce my skin.

My exterior drenched with sunshine, as well as, within.

The sun dances on me from head to toe.

My body gladly sitting idle, nowhere needing to go.

I have a blanket of warmth thicker than cotton.

Blessed with a present from nature and I’m the Christmas stocking.

The sun is no stranger to this state.

A never-ending presence of the su...

EYE CONTACT

EYE CONTACT

 

Connection starts with the eyes.

It falls with the repetition of lies.

 

They say the eyes are the window to the soul.

Sometimes it feels like I’m staring through a black hole.

 

The eyes have adapted to the new culture society is creating.

The sad truth we are facing is that our attention is fading.

 

There is a cage locked around every person’s hear...

ESCAPE

ESCAPE

 

To escape from the weight,

You must release from your current state.

 

To free the cluster crowding your brain,

Grab a grip and crack the chain.

 

To move free as you may,

You must trash your collection of what others say.

 

To disconnect spirit from flesh,

The two lines of consciousness and action cannot mesh.

 

Live in a parallel and not in a pe...

CHECK THIS OUT

CHECK THIS OUT

 

Check this out,

A man slapped the face of a woman.

Where is the morals within the man?

His being is empty of morality and decency.

His soul burns with hate and anger.

What is the solution?

 

Check this out,

Look at the culture he was raised in.

What was his upbringing like?

Has he been shown this is normal?

Lots of questions for the man

KNOWN

KNOWN

 

Everyone wants to be known,

Trying so hard for others to see.

My Creator is the only attention I want,

Because He already knows me.

BORN A SLAVE

BORN A SLAVE

 

Born a slave,

But I have been made free.

I once was lost,

But God has made me who he wants me to be.

I was once in chains,

But now I am cleansed from my stains.

A spirit doomed for hell,

Now destined for heaven is what his words tell.

FAKE FRIENDS

FAKE FRIENDS

 

You tell me to trust,

When your commitment is a bust,

You’ve left this relationship fade like rust.

 

Fake smiles,

Different communication styles,

Disappointment growing, from small papers to piles.

 

Lack of care,

Talking is rare,

Such a calamitous pair.

REBEL

REBEL

 

Red hair,

Combat boots,

Mix-matched socks,

Painted fingernails,

Makeup caked on.

You are a rebel to society.

But you can still confide in me.

You and I,

ELDERS

ELDERS

 

Everyone older sets the tone,

Except now, all of them are on their phones.

Completely distracted and unaware,

No more memories for them to share.

Where has our old values gone,

The same values that created such an indestructible bond.

 

I can’t watch this go on,

From a lonely sunset to a lonelier dawn.

Focus on what means the most,

Not on some stupid In...

GLOW

GLOW

 

What makes us who we are?

Are we a moon or are we a star?

Do we shine bright?

Or, have we lost our light?

What causes that special shine?

The one everyone takes a while to

find?

 

Find what makes you glow.

DECEPTION

DECEPTION

 

Sometimes the most put together people have the most pain.

They show you a spirit of sunshine, yet, they’re really dealing with rain.

 

Sometimes the most beautiful skies come from pollution,

Nothing will ever explain this, not even evolution.

 

Sometimes the most beautiful creatures are the most poisonous,

Little do we know that their beauty is all just a po...

DISCOVERY

DISCOVERY

 

Once you discover,

You will understand,

Your potential to be a strong man.

As you unpack,

And continue to unfold,

You will find a man that is extremely bold.

Keep digging deeper,

And you will find,

A man that is in fact, genuinely kind.

You have the power,

To start the search,

Just humble yourself and step off your perch.

Priced more than gold,

From cheek to cheek,

Let this moment be something you always seek.

In order to free your mind.

You are, the person of the hour.

UNTITLED

UNTITLED

 

The look on your face when you’re ecstatic.

The echo of your laughter when I’m being facetious.

The strength of your hold when I’m scared.

The physique of your body when I press against.

The softness of your cheeks when I stroke them.

The opulent strands of your hair when I thread my hands through.

The configuration of your eyes when I stare.

The thickness of ...

Refreshed,

Brand new,

Refined focus on what I shall do.

New strength is developing.

 

I’m glad I have received clarity.

Don’t get that, I’m getting your door.

Cheek to cheek smile, I’m making you know you’re worth more.

Making you a queen, because you are what I adore.

Take my jacket, put it down so you can step on that wet floor.

Washing your dishes, I want to do your every chore.

Listening to your words, so you don’t ever feel ignored.

THE WARRIOR & THE POET

THE WARRIOR & THE POET

 

It is the warrior, not the poet, who gives us free speech.

It is life lessons, not the teacher, who continues to teach.

 

It is the believer, not the institution, that makes disciples.

It is the constitution, not the activists, that give us our rifles.

 

It is the internal drive, not motivational speakers, that gets us going.

It is the producer, ...

LITTLE THINGS

LITTLE THINGS

 

Such a cliche thing to say nowadays,

But do we realize how much two words weighs.

 

See sometimes we miss the bigger picture,

We get caught up in the fancy “this and that” mixture.

 

It is when someone writes you a letter,

Turning your bad day into a whole lot better.

 

It is when you receive a handmade gift,

Right at the end of a really bad shif...

SOCIAL FEEDIA

SOCIAL FEEDIA

 

Filling our hunger,

Since our stomachs starve,

Social feedia has now become the turkey we carve.

 

Grabbing a full plate,

Full of greasy, tender posts,

Likes, favorites and comments all of a sudden mean the most.

 

Yet we will always be hungry,

Since it will not cure,

Always feeding and this I am made sure.

As a kid, you didn’t need anything else since a dog was enough.

As a kid, the sound of your body in a bathtub acting like a fish.

EAST COAST SOUTHERNERS

 

East versus west,

They are very much different.

When put to the test,

Only one cares about the sentiment.

 

In my recent travel,

I have observed a different style.

I have written this to help unravel,

Why it is that they will talk for a while.

 

Listen to my words,

For you must know this.

They care about your bees and your birds,

FAITH

 

To trust what cannot be seen,

This is what I call faith.

To know that it’s there,

Like some kind of wraith.

 

My savior is no ghost,

He has saved you and I from eternal pain.

He made the ultimate sacrifice,

For his perfect son was slain.

 

He knows we sin,

Yet, he still loves.

This love is beautiful,

Like two turtle doves.

My mind is clear,

It has finally been said,

All of that weight is now gone from my head.

 

It is refreshing,

The most shocking smile,

My joy keeps stacking pile after pile.

 

Immersion of truth,

The chains have been set free,

At least now, my mind can finally be.

APATHEIA

 

A word often used by the Stoics,

Meant to reflect control of one’s emotions.

 

We often react emotionally or egotistically,

And lose control when it comes to life’s oceans.

 

We will be drowned by waves,

These are what we call comotions.

 

Everyone has them,

It’s just that some have the right potions.

 

Please understand my hints,

A love so strong it splits trees like thunder.

You can see the glow around your smile like fireflies.

You make me crave your attention for even five minutes.

SELF DESTRUCTION

DOMINATION

Our world is consumed with self.

So much so, we have put others on a separate shelf.

We are constantly worried about our time.

We hardly ever ask if others are fine.

We grow with impatience waiting for food.

One simple mistake by a server puts us in a bad mood.

I have seen that many make sure to complain.

They want nothing more than to put others through pain.
