I Walk An Endless Road

I walk endless an road

locked into a heavy load

Of these questions and fears

Gripping from it's unreasonable tears


As a car roars by

I look dead into it's light

Wondering where it leads

But just like that it's gone

just like another day

As I wake up to the sun's harsh light


I try not to look back

As I attempt to fill this crack

Of this hurt and wonder

Unstoppable, a storm of rain and thunder


As a car roars by

I look dead into it's light

Wondering where it leads

But just like that it's gone

just like another night

As I stay up to the moon's hypnotic might

Confessions Of An Insomniac

All About Me

Most people say they'd prefer to die in their sleep,
To pass away gently into the night in peace.
Not me.
I want to die with my eyes wide open,
To stare death in the face brazenly.
Stay awake.
Can't sleep, clowns will eat my eyes,
I'll never see again, blind forever in their torment.
Not me.
There is too much to do, and so little time,
Living life in the moment is all I want to do.
Stay awake.
Some people hold their feelings inside,
Too scared to find out what others might think.
Not me.
I want the world to know that I've survived it,
Ready to face what tomorrow might bring.
Stay awake.
I'm still awake.
Watch me fly...

Because of my OCD, ADD, and GAD I often suffer with bouts of insomnia, so when I do...I try to do something productive, like write.

A life in search for a way to leave

In this broken home we seem to all hide

I see it all, I just don't acknowledge it

Somethings are better left unsaid

I’ve learned to listen because words are empty

But it's hard to ignore the words that my girl hates me

and these drugs don’t help me

I can't stand pretending as I masquerade happiness

behind short nights and cheap liquor


The friends I can't stand, I still stand with

I’m just as fake as the ones I talk about

I've seen enough, I've done enough

the end result is what I'm afraid of

There is only one way, so I cry out for the way out

It looks right but it feels wrong

but what else do I have to turn to? It's all gone

Never forgot the night I told my self

“I would die to be happy”

Who knew it would come to that?

All in, there’s no turning back


I'm gone 


Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is a piece I put together to try and capture this part of my life where i have done all I have to be happy. Everything was not working in my life and I soon started to study the bible. My eyes were open to this new way as it looked right but it felt wrongs because it wasn't a thing I was use to. I had a hard time adjusting to living a godly life. So I hope many can enjoy this piece thank you all. I really do look for feedback on what was good and even things that can be worked on
