optimism

The Year of Sincerity

Do we shatter every threshold at the age of twenty-four?
This year of even numbers amidst our growing nests,
beguiling us, enlightened souls, parts of sorted industry.

Their faces seem to glow with knowing and tantalizing thoughts,
ripe with trite, forbidden vows and lessons dealt by living.
As if adults to my dear child, those above who lay command
upon my infant ears and to my misted, doe-y eyes;
they speak and say "wait just a while -
the best has yet to come."

I trust in myself
my future
my spirit
my world

not because I believe myself
so brilliant or original
(well, maybe just a little bit)

But because I've found
that having trust
creates an optimism
A lightness, an energy
which without
I cannot press gracefully forward.

Treaty Beach

There was a passing thought -
once a bright idea,
that lead to passing ruin,
akin to falling stars.
What had been real was processed
from flesh to muddied tin.
The stale of air in atmosphere
gave rise to their alarm.
He trails aloft in consciousness
and recites his efforts past.
Amidst the shallow, local river
he hears a sense be made.
Grasping for one solid, stable
base on which to cling for life,
he subjects himself to the waving,
lucid trembling force of the word.
He finds his landing beside a lake,
among those he knows best.

Don't Allow the Cloud

Don't allow the cloud to dwell
above the heads and necks to swell;
as if he's passing right on by,
but you know he'll stand on idle time.
And rain will pour and drench your desk,
with sullen looks from ease to wretch
who wonder why on your big day
you choose to mope in such a way.
So she's lost, and so she's gone;
your health is good and life is long.
The worst is yet, or yet it's past,
regardless you've got time to last,
to celebrate and drink and dance
and fall to floors by glances cast.
Don't allow the cloud to peak
and tantalize you with the bleak,
for you are learning how to shine
and the light will be constant in due time.

For my birthday, I'd like to become good enough.

new year

look into my eyes

 

can u see the bygone past

 

deep in my iris

 

can u feel things that hurts

 

leaving apart

 

the loses of the year

 

Looking forward

 

For the times ahead of us

 

 

 

Its time that we celebrate

 

Prepare ourselves to start

 

Cause coming in it’s way

 

Is the first day of the year

 

 

 

Failing in our errands

 

When we felt so lonely

 

Deep in sorrow & pain

 

Losing our hopes slowly

 

Sometimes crying out in pain

 

Sometimes we laugh

 

Realizing that falling

 

Is a part of picking urself up

 

 

 

Its time that we celebrate

 

Prepare ourselves to start

 

Cause coming in it’s way

 

Is the first day of the year

 

 

 

Coming out of deep darkness

 

Enlightened by new light

 

Awakening and reviving

 

All will be right

 

Look about urself aroud u

 

This world is pleased and smiling

 

In it’s new vigour and color

 

End of one year is just the beginning

 

 

 

Its time that we celebrate

 

Prepare ourselves to start

 

Cause coming in it’s way

 

Is the first day of the year
