Punch Card

Folder: 
2019

I have made every mistake

walked every wrong turn

can you sign my punch card

because only you know where I’ve fallen

 

Because I haven’t yet found a balance

between I wish I had

and I wish I hadn’t.

 

Because I walk and

pull the steel off the rails

with every step

let it be known

I’ll only shed a tear for you

if you give me a hand

 

but please don’t say

we love the silence more

than we love here.

God Is Greater!

God is Greater!

So, don’t fear bad weather, news, and the taunts of your haters

You show God’s love by forgiving and unfailingly loving all your neighbors

Do!

And it shall be given upon to you

For you are blessed and highly favored by God

All these things shall be giving a billion-fold of what was robbed

For, Great is God than he or it of this world

Use your talents to uplift all man, woman, boy, and girl

For the time has come

My Dear Chosen One

To spread your wings and fly

Flying high amongst the sky

For your dreams are big bigger than you can do yourself

So, learn to depend and to submit to someone else

For, the greatest good

Use your gifts to uplift and pull others out of the ghetto and hood

I wish I could touch you and hold you tight

For, this is a fight for your soul’s life

Get Right

And get dress for church to go hear the Word

Trust, eventually you live out what is heard

For no man can stop what God has already ordained as His own

I pray, let His Holy Spirit live in your body your temple your home

I promise with God you’re never alone

I speak victory

I hope you hear me

Greatness, Purity, Holiness, and Wholeness

For you are greater than this!

I speak rise up him and her!

Pick up your bed, walk into your true worth, and sin no more for  

God is Greater!

Let Your Light So Shine!!!

Sometimes Enlightenment is all.

....

 

Heated tongues had no temperance to spare 


Betrayal is a fickle master cloaked in innocence 


Eyes held truths with no regards to context 


Illusions were never more real than when piercing

The heart left to bleed pounding desperately on the floor

Under the foot of merciless pain 


How do you explain the inexplicable? 


Some things just end while others start


The resoning was perfectly logical 

But damned if anyone could see it


Because faith seemed a too bigger thing 

To hold through this broken prism

 

Off they went onto seperate trajectories

Only to find the truth revealed in years of wastedness

 

It was only when they travelled around it in oposite motions

They could see they belonged together


Far too late,  as other sattlites they collected were now in the way

And faith seemed once again bigger to hope for


And not a thing was learnt.

Hollow Ground

Hollow Ground


Like the effluent rose, failing to blossom,

I am stranded
With no defence I sit and wait for the inevitable storm that will strip me of all my colour
All my emotion
All my life
Rain cascades like tears down my withering body.
Battered by the elements as i stare at the ground, waiting for it to consume me
I am weak
I had faith once, i used to admire the ocean of blue above
My beauty is still ever present, but it’s invisible to most
I am invisible
The world that we live in is a picture of serenity, but the earth is filled with parasites
Preying on the weak as they make their way to the top
Forgetting all they once were
Staying true to yourself is a dying art
And not everything is how it appears before us
But even though i’m suffering,
I am still a rose
And I am still beautiful

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this for a very special girl who's soul has been turned to dust.
Taken in with the promise of light, then consumed by darkness.

Inside all of us is ourselves

We just need to come out once in a while

Washed Away

Folder: 
Favorites

 

Mistakes of the past,
Created by misfortune,
And misjudgment,
Today are washed away.

 

Powerful strikes,
Break the layers,
Cut us down to size,
Restore us to new.

 

Water droplets,
Fall gently, then firm,
Spontaneously reminding,
Not to be predictable.

 

Welcome to the storm,
Nature’s forgiveness,
Apology,
Ending,
Fresh start.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In honor of our January thunderstorm today.

Shutdown

 

The power is out,
The lights are gone anyways,
Seems I couldn’t find my way,
Always astray,
These days.

 

In a word,
Shutdown.
Past people,
Irrelevant sequels,
Happiness tainted by a frown.

 

Living to love,
Accidentally creating hate,
Emotions churn,
Leaving a burn,
Logic arriving too late.

A Cyclic Kinda Dizzy

 

I don't seem to learn from my mistakes

They just drift into oblivion

And I can't count all of the heartaches

I've caused myself from what I've done then redone

 

It's like my conscience is inaudible

Or that I choose to ignore its voice

But it never stays that silent

In this cyclic kinda noise

 

It's a deja vu

A wicked voodoo

And it's all thanks to me

 

I think I'm in a tizzy

In a cyclic kinda dizzy

I keep calling myself out

But the line is always busy

And no matter what good cards I hold

For some reason I always choose to fold

And fall back into this misery

 

You'd think that after a good while

I'd start to get the picture

But I'm beginning to believe

That I'm a unfixable fixture

 

This history repeats itself

And I cannot control myself

From weaving this web that I weave

 

I think I'm in a tizzy

In a cyclic kinda dizzy

I keep calling myself out

But the line is always busy

And no matter how what good cards I hold

For some reason I always choose to fold

And fall back into this misery

 

I swear that fixing this mess is on my list of things to do

But I either don't know how or I don't care to

Breakup of Success

Abandoned and afraid
Scared to death I fade
Exhausted and dejected
Anxiety to be expected

.........................................

Only you know what you’ve done
My heart strings toyed for fun
Convinced you’re worth the fight
I went sleepless night after night

.........................................

Lying to my face
I thought you needed space
****, I was wrong
With him now you’re strong

.........................................

Your decision to leave
But you led me to believe
With my heart full of affection
I believed in a re-connection

.........................................

I was too naive
Blind, she won’t deceive?
But now I see the clues
Just a firework with no fuse

.........................................

Bawling for days
Alone with God I praised
A chance to be redeemed
This is what I always dreamed

.........................................

Slowly I found the sun
Finally, it begun!
A path to become a man
God laid out my plan

.........................................

Engineered to perfection
I detached no more connection
Freedom long at last
Happiness unsurpassed

.........................................

I jostled for position
Ignited with ambition
Friends, family and new dates
My single life awaits

.........................................

A 180 degree transition
Now I’m on a mission
Jubilant life grows on
New beginning, I’m a pawn

.........................................

The spring of the upswing
Soon I’ll be a king
Bitterness in the past
Surprised by this contrast

.........................................

I rose up from the dust
Like a bomb I was combust 
The fire burned inside
Leaping I found my stride 

.........................................

This poem a rendition 
Interpret with conviction
For I have found the way
Forever I will stay
