2017 poems

Being left alone

Is something we

All need

When we don't

Get it, it sometimes

Makes us want to


As these tear drops

Fall from the face

Of someone's pain

Look into the mirror

And all we really see

Is a scar'd life

And a scar'd heart

Just waiting to get 

Out of this trapped

Life called hell and hurt

Motions roar like

A lion, as the

Pain cuts deeper

Down in the veins

It starts to bleed

With streams of anger

From the soul

They want to be

Found by a true

Mate, it's something

That we all dream of,

Even still today

So be thankful for

What you have,


Tomorrow it could

Be all taken away
