    You wake up, Seeing those smiling faces ‘round you, Welcoming you Back home. Their faces are etched With the smiles of their years, And they whisper into your ear: “I won’t always be your superman. You’ll be far away, The world on your shoulders. But I know That things will be o...

    The road is bright ahead, Encouraging you to move forward As you travel on your way. Yet, No matter how warm the words are, The snow is still icy Under your feet. Everywhere you go, You leave tracks behind you Like a moment That has nowhere else to go But follow you. Looking back Does...

    These crumpled faces Of lives gone sour, Basking in the glow of the shadow. Empty façade, Filled with darkness— The essence of fear itself. It is not the objects covering the sun That obscure your vision. Rather, it is the shadows That darken the alleyway— (The moon can only help so m...

    Wake up From that lie that you’ve been told. Wake up. You are mighty, strong, and bold. Wake up, For there is no way to sleep. Wake up. There are promises to keep. Wake up From that darkness that you hold. Wake up. Turn the energy to gold. Wake up, And remember who you are. Wake up, ...

    This miracle ends-- You advance, On your way, Making no sense of the black and white. How can we be disciplined On the inescapable lie? Words… They’re just another story In this twisting river of tall tales-- Black flashes On white banners. They said that life’s not fair, And tha...

    As the waves of life Wash over the sands of time, You face strong notions-- Like the breeze that supports the sail. This breeze is so strong, in fact, You begin to ask: Why are we here? The question rings out With no answer to satisfy. But fear not, Wise One. It is not to fulfill a prophec...

    We play their game, In the hope of winning (As one always does). There is a fair playing field, Most of the time. Sometimes there’s no chance to move. They push us off the board, And explain that they Must always win. This is fact. Things must always be this way. And there is no choice ...

    When you look deeply Into one’s eyes, Past the bright blue tint, You can see Their Inner Being: Their happy memories With open arms— The nightmares That cloud their vision. When you look deeper, You can feel Who they really are. You can see past The guise that is Binding them to fa...

    Being different Is never easy. People laugh and tease you, Make fun of you, But if you still have yourself to laugh with, It will never matter. However, If they laugh and tease, And you start to believe them, You will let yourself down. For, the only person You can truly trust Is you. ...

    scarlet sun is barely visible Among the clouds. The earth reawakens To a new sight. The moon is jealous Of the increasing aurora, And sulks in the corner. The glistening of the grass Calls out defiantly to life. Motivated by this strong notion, The animals follow suit. First the sight, ...

    My life, my friend, is filled with mystery; A puzzle that is waiting to be solved. I’m destined to find what’s inside of me, And see this puzzle fit and be resolved. To tamper with a life is often bad, When it is someone else’s life to mess. But when you look back at those times you ha...

    How shall one describe the Truth? It is more sensible to depict a phantom, As being a notion of form Through our eyes. Subsequently, it is easier to say That no one can tell us the Truth. The world as we perceive it Is our own reality. Therefore, the Truth Can be anything....

    Mighty Oak: So strong, So elegant. The skies bow down to your might. There you rest, Rooted firmly, Standing up, immense and elevated. Your arms and fingers Reach toward the sky. Your still grace Is captivating. You eloquently tell What you’ve seen, And what you hope to see. I am so ...

    Life is a maze. You start your journey Unaware of what’s ahead. The road is not so far. But then people tell you, As you wander on your path, That the maze is not winnable; That it is unfair. They build walls within the maze, And add dead ends. These interruptions Make the maze more int...

    What we don't know Can be taught to us by the simplest of things; the Meaning of Life or the Secrets of the Universe can all be answered by the wisest of creatures Some say they couldn't understand they way we feel, and our life situations. And maybe they don't; but at the...

    We are so busy With our daily lives. Every day, A discipline. Everyone is so focused On what’s in the past, That we don’t stop and think: Now. Days go by Like petals On a fast-flowing river. Can’t we just stop, Pick one up, And observe its beauty? The moments are so delicate, ...

    It’s amazing how Food can bring back memories. The soft, delicate taste Of a cookie Recalls your childhood: The milk-chocolate sensation Of discovering the world; The sugar-sweet emotion Of love and joy. From the bitterness of a lemon, You can see A loved one, lost. How despaired you...

    An unbearable pain surges through me, And I collapse to the floor. The room sways like the sea, Calling out to me: Let go. There is an ominous ringing in my ears. I can not hold on any longer. The clock stops ticking. Despite the horrible pain preceding, I feel joyous. A thousand images ...

    You come out into the world Destined to be unique: To try out new things, to Paint on a blank canvas. You want to create things-- Make your dreams come true. But what happens if That same voice that told you You could do anything, Years later told you The canvas was already painted on B...

    His day is hard today. So many things; So little time. He looks at the clock And wonders if that's the only thing That's sane in his head. The beat of time: Tick, tock. He stares at the blank page before him, Desperate, hopeless. He looks up at the clock again As if there are an...
