Be yourself, stop trying to impress everyone

2017 poems

Don't damage

Your brain

By impressing

Others with

Your words

Don't damage

Your thoughts

By impressing

Others on what

You can truly do

Don't damage

Your mind

By impressing 

Others with

What's not

Really in your


Just be you

And let God

Take control

Of your pen


God is the

Pen to my words

As he is also

The pen to my

Life forever

Is an act of vanity - a selfish endeavor to express what's in the think tank. Add emotions, add color and sounds, add a touch of you and God will be there too - in the pen. - allets -
