Trying...

To teach myself to think of you

Without so much emotion

Without longing to look

Into your sweet eyes

Which showed me your soul

A soul connected to my own...

When will the pain stop?

How do I let it be at peace?

I told you long ago

I did not want to live in a world

Without you

Now you are gone

My souls still cries for you...

I am here

You are there

In a better place

So they say

I am selfish

I want you here with me

My heart not able

To let... Read More

We were never made to be perfect my dearest brother;

yet still after all this time we struggle to find perfect meaning to our mindless blunders.

What is perfection, and to who's qualified eye must approval be met?

this wonderful life, in the end will collect it's debt.

Before anything we were sons, brothers, and sinners;

and in the end we stood helpless as addiction's prisoners

We battled with personal struggles most likely unseen, but too grand to go unnoticed;

drowning in water like dejected lotuses.

Our addiction made us want what was... Read More

Today, day number seven hundred forty two;

give me just another moment and these feeling too, will be through.

Fire rises with the wind;

burns everything in it's path, deep within.

Like a love you had and swore was true;

only to realize at the end true love begins with you.

Time has always been a friend of mine;

the healing agent, the antidote to the pain year nine.

I didn't know how to feel when I learned of your news;

your engagement, congratulations, elation's infused.

Apprised was the world of you status;

I was... Read More

Life truly is what you make it

I will not waste my energy

On the world testing my resolve

I do not live on a rock of

Man-made obligations

Painting me into a box...

To that I say

Go, go from me

I will never embrace

This unjust living trying

To enslave my heart

With what will never blossom

Into my known purpose....

I refuse to stumble and fall

When weary I hold tight to faith

Knowing there is nothing that

Will shatter my resolve

Having been blessed and branded

With trials... Read More

Today I wake with a hunger

to search the valley

A place where birth lingers

with it's sacred memories

Instead I find voices of condemnation

wounds which left me bleeding, sticks and stones

Still I look for healing, grace, truth, reality beyond

the narrow confines of intolerance and judgement.....

Finding none...

I climbed the mountain summit

Where I had placed my hopes and dreams

Breathless with perseverance

Resolution and persistence my tools

Embracing only the shadow of what had been

once upon... Read More

I know not why I came or where I will go but I do know that I am here, I exist...

In this world beset with pleasure and pain in the mist of uncertainly There is a higher truth shining brightly Calling my soul to a deeper knowing...

In knowing that this planet exists , although I know not why While I am here. let me illuminate with encouragement...

I do not find all the answers in my searching I see enough to make me embrace these blessings in faith Carried forward with my vulnerable heart...

The trouble I see is there is not enough hope To trust in the divine faith... Read More

If the darkness were my friend and did not make me weep in pain

I would reach out in my mind to embrace far away emotions

I would breath your caress brushing my skin , a nocturnal gush

In the dim forefront of my cherished memories I would dance with your smile inside my heart....

If the darkness was a gracious dream a memory birthed in fetal time

I would hold tightly to distant memories and still be with you in time passed by

You waited with the frail hold you had to life waiting for my forgiveness before you passed on

I know you heard my prayer... Read More
