The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change-Carl Rogers

A spiritual fire



then light her

a vision inside

of my


hold it tighter

a poetic



of my heart

the chalkline

shows no sign

of struggle

or voilence

it's almost as if

it was


right from my chest

killed the capacity

to feel


a hole in my soul

now how do

I mend it

some days

all I think

is the second amendment

a hole in my head

escape from this cage

that's my

mortal body

I live in each day

sunshine and good times

they fade to my dark lines

the world dont know me

like maybe I flatlined

my hope

I just burned it

for some supid chick

emotions were rising

I worshipped this


now gold I thought I had

it's so dead like lead

all gas in my tank

like money I spent

I do all of these things

like art and guitar

make out with women

and blast in my car


from the pain

so I can


some form of confidence

firm hope for the gain

for something that isn't

this hell I am living

surounded by great things

for which I'm not driven

how do I pick it back up?

it's a mess

If I live past 25

i'll be so blessed

God yes you know me

am I a good man?

tell me if

I'll make it

now what is the plan?

I will keep grinding

like BUDS evolutions

a soldior that's crying

for a resolution

I will not give up

so don't quit on me

fight through the night with me

until I'm free!

The author's comments:

I wrote this heartfelt collection of verses after a breakup recently. Since returning from correction-school life has been very hard to get used to again. In this military-type school we were completely cut off from the outside world. This poem is all my fears for the future and all my tears for the past. What once was, what could have been, and what will never be again.
