    My past called for a change in decor, Zebra stripes of mistakes and heartache, A change was in order. Frequently, flickering flames left their mark on me. I thought it was love. As if I knew. Merely marking their territory, Me not a living, breathing, feeling human being, But a plaything. C...

    I've seen people run from an unhealthy state. I've seen people run to escape from God knows what. People probably. I've seen people run on the field. Evading not only defenders, but poverty and obscurity. Especially the latter, because the roar of the crowd drowns out the mer...

    All this work and meeting deadlines paid off, Now I'm making headlines. Blood, sweat, and tears intertwine, This feeling's divine! Diverting effort to difficulties pays dividends. Depends on how hard you work to achieve an end. Spending time, toiling and training Blood boiling, body...

    Why would anybody want to fall in love? It's almost as if Two people, drawn by something unseen, Wait. Hold it RIGHT there. I've never seen it. Is it real? Is it a clever trick, a sleight of hand? A façade of emotions mixed with hormones, What the world sees and what is, Are two ...

    People fade away, when I walk towards them they evade my way. It would make my day to befriend you all, But tall orders don't get filled in this dining hall, Where the popular feast on the populace. Why can't we all get along? The answer is obvious. We're not all suave, smooth, o...

    I hate to see you go, But you seem to be As close to me as The sun is to night, As a snowflake to a blazing hearth. I just want your friendship, Nothing more, but it isn't there for me. Life will go on, but wouldn’t it be nice To not live like fire and ice?...

    I, Joseph Tanner, do solemnly swear Before I take my last step and breathe my last air, To accept that life is a paradox. You may never understand, just try and think outside the box. When opportunity knocks, take stock in the moment. When the odds against you are astronomical, Laugh in a doub...

    In my chest lies a chasm. A volatile vacuum with no room, my cardiac tomb. Rigor mortis has distorted and contorted what was once there. Shifting times cause whipping winds, and a huge tear. Can I bear it? Am I strong enough to wear it on my sleeve and write these verses down to share it? Of c...

    Love is elusive, exclusively keeping me lucid. I've had mere morsels, but I hunger for a smorgasbord, But the price paid internally is something I just can't afford. Looking listlessly, wishfully wistful, With a fist full of reasons why my heart is running dry. I give myself whole-hea...

    He's never there for me. He'll vanish out of thin air, just grow a pair for me. He doesn't treat me right at all, We never spend time alone and my spirits fall. Inside I bawl, wanting him to come crawling back, Get his actions on track, pick up the slack. Does he know how this f...

    Where do you go when you dream? I delve deep into the depths of my imagination. A potpourri of possibilities, easy to lose myself in the flurry. Looking around I feel a shiver, As a single snowflake rests on my shoulder. It melts. I keep looking for something, though I don't know what I&#...

    Change. Out with the old, in with the new. The LATEST in everything from technology to point of view. You'll see what I mean when the Galaxy 10 comes out and you still have the GS2. 'Hey man, times are changing, the winds of change are blowing' Your wind can go blow where the sun ...

    Smile, baby, are each of your cheeks heavy enough to weigh you down? Your expression's bleak,  no smiles in weeks, all I see is a frown. Let me tell you something, live life while living's good, Loosen up, look lively, and just know you're understood.  I know you, I get you, as...

    I am the pack of frozen peas left to sit at the back of your freezer. I am the acorn the squirrel forgot to bury, left alone in the snow. I am the flower that bloomed a tad too late, covered in frost. I am the last butterfly that didn't make it south in time. I am the first snowflake, crus...

    I'm an artist with my language, Mixing phrases on my pallet 'til I get the perfect hue. Metaphors on the spectrum range from pitch black to sky blue. Graceful brush strokes with the pen, verses vivid as a morning bloom. Just like a fresco, the poetry just fills the room, Clever twists...

    You've got a mouth the size of a Cadillac, Yet when you're speaking it's the blind leading the blind, go fix your cataracts. My rhymes are not for the faint of heart, the old or the weak are in danger of heart attacks, Contradict me, might as well take a snooze on the railroad trac...

    Genuine words are worth more than a thousand clichés That's why a touch of creativity is the price I pay To get through to people because no matter what My words will stay true to people. In a day and age where truth is growing ever relative, And sugar coated lies act as a sedative. The ...

    As the clouds of slumber disperse, And dreams yield presence to sight, The eager mind awaits to feast upon existence. Regrettably, not all that are zealous. The dust and cobwebs devour a soul in atriphy....

    My frustrations are accumulating, It's getting irritating. I've tasted love once, and it not only captivated me, but left me wanting more. Having it taken away and not returned is a feeling I hadn't felt before. Who is at fault? I've been told I'm young and should take i...

    Why is it, that we the people pick scum to deal with all things political? How hypocritical, that it's an inefficient system when the ones screwing up are the ones WE chose. Sorry DC, it's not your fault, the blame's on you and me. Bickering about nothing while the innocent die a...

    2/3 cup fire, 1/2 cup ice, A dash of something charming, A pinch of something nice. 3 lbs of wisdom, 5 lbs of heart, A handful of humor, (That's a good place to start.) 4 teaspoons of awkwardness, 2 liters of strength, Mix, then use a rolling pin 10 inches in length. Bake at 350°, ...

    How does one find the measure of a man? Can he be measured by how much he is treasured by others? Or how he treats his brothers, or his own mother? How then, does one find the measure of a man? Is a man defined by what he takes to the bank, Or what he drives? Now let's be frank; Does th...

    As a child I was naive, but as time passes I've become cynical Through my view, mankind is nearing the pinnacle Of deceit, life's not what you bargain for, so save your receipt Or take a seat, living can siphon the life out of you. Just make sure your descendants are proud of you In a...

    In our world today, people will do anything for attention. Acting up, being disruptive, in school suspension. People my age often disguise a plea to be noticed as pain But before you cry out, why don't you run this through your brain. In Africa, a mother stands helpless and crying.  She...
