Poems

The storm before the calm

the world can see some change
it's time, a generation filled with rage
the curses stacked on us
from oppression comes the derranged
but also a greater many
a new revolutionary race
our blood boils with injustice
our fates, certain yet strange
we dreamt of far greater things
for the heirloom wasnt completely derailed
an inspiration to live and prosper
and willingly submit to his grace
for like us, they were once the new generation
looked down on for their degredation
man's ego filter's out self-judgment
But the others have many more mistakes!
look into yourself, there's the corruption
the wrong of our society is inside you
poisoning your heart, in a daze
what we need is a leader to unite us
selflessly teach and guide us
show us into ourselves
the path starts with a mirror
the truth liberates all ends
it's a cycle that's ever flowing
golden age to a has-been great
pass the role to the next contestant
we dream of power, we shall not share
tell me now, what about an age
where, united, we achieve the true golden
no contestants plotting away
to tear a title, we seflessly worked for
unto their lands, no longer vane
give me that world, and you can have my soul
i dream hard, and i dream long

The stars

How i miss that sparkle,
The endless carpet of light
Two stars transcended reality
Gazing deep into my life
My eyes lingered on them
Attached and deeply surprised
A treasure in my own skies
A light shining so bright
Amidst the black heights
The moon's face opens my eyes
My heart softens,
My tears delight
The days no less,
Glorious or bright,
The sun's warmth, blooms my life
Cleansing, pure blissful cries
The memories remain,
In my moments of darkness
Always missing your light

Elements


An ongoing contradiction
My drive, opposed and afloat
A catalyst could save face and time
But Ive run out of catalysts this time
To trust my nature with the outcome
Perhaps the gamble will fruit
Hoping the desire strengthens what was once weak
The sleepless nights witness
The passage of time substantiates
Opportunities don't last forever

Perhaps

If only words carried the coherence of my thoughts
perhaps, the curse would be lifted.
If only light shone under those stairs
perhaps, the mind would have once more visited
If only my eyes saw beyond yours
perhaps, things would again relate
If only this pain didn't taste so sweet
perhaps, oh no, no need
The answers are all clear, the path, wholely unseen
Ifluenced and guided, struggling to breathe

Solitary Transit

When your trapped in that short time lapse
watching everything around you just collapse
you want it gone, though you want it bad
confusion, pain. you just wish its back.
some people never learn,
others give up fast.
The pursuit of a dream
a vision, the past
when failure's a passion
a longing, don't ask.
bygone and unknown
all that i ask,
a single request,
let me forget, let me rest.

Equilibrium


The black road stretches,
Two forks, glistening waves
The snow, pure
White, unforgiving
The delicate trees,
Predictable curves, slender branches
No loose ends, no imperfections
Two sides, two oceans
black, moonlit ripples
deep, ensnaring
elusive, forbidden
My locked utopia
Unlock

Psychedelic Paranoia

Like a mother’s urge,
The clouds cover
The sun, submerged
Light stutters
A black gleam,
Tender skies
Nightmares, dreams
Distant cries
Fear, every paralyzing
Paranoia, shiver enticing
Loud Thuds, invisible assailant
Wild thugs, distant conveyers
The pain of others
Confused, Troubled, Stressed
Constantly differently expressed
Characters speak for themselves
Let it out or keep it opressed
Experience the pain, depressed
The answer is simple
Life is short
Just like a pimple
It wont last long
Worry about it,
And time is gone
Let it be,
and it will be worn

In your shoes

An unspoken sympathy
at days ruthless apathy
pinged but never ponged
a love that can cross oceans
a rejection that defies motion
hope, not yet lost
so much for surface tensionfor
this one's truly lost
a section once undetermined
blinded, reprimanded
deaf but to one thought
now . a mere crater
empty, for years to come, locked.
Internal wars, bleeding
one road, pure dreaming
another, logic screaming
in the end
human nature, won.

Light

The gentle breeze
Muscles throbbing
Squinting seer
Destination, a state of mind
The mind has limits
Emotions curve,
Sight without vision,
Aimless walks
A random gesture,
A stranger smiles
Nature happens,
a bird flies
Mundane yet worthy,
Relaxed, now focusing

Creative Avoidance

What good is a path,
if you were never meant to follow it
What good is a destiny,
if you were never meant to write it
A realization,
its all in your hand
With determination,
grasp and understand
A concept so simple,
you get what you want
You work and you try,
then you try and you work

A branch away

Light my abyss
my companions' flight
false things happened
my blindfolded life
a path of redemption
a fulfilling dimension
prospective exception
all doors must collide
the advent of an era
an inner demeanour
a revolution of the mind
down with teh illusions
out with the pure
engulf me, oh glory
with change, comes delight

Trap

find me the point of a world you cannot share
with every attempt to enunciate comes a fail
a powerful passion in my fiery depths awaits
you have the key to my own
now unleash the breeze
for it will uplift you
beyond the reach of earthly afflictions
