Reflections: Midlife Crisis

P     aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A     cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N     othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I      nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C     hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace

Heavenly Nevermore

The sun has learned
to nevermore interfere 

with the moon 
and its stars

To give it a whole world
because the sun

doesn't need to stand in the way,
when it has free reign 
of the entire universe.

Sleep Is The Cousin Of Death

I stay up through the nights.
Will I get to eat tonight?
Will I see the day I turn 21?
One-Day, will I feel the pain of a gun?
Will I die young?

Am I asking too many questions?
Does everything happen for a reason?
Is everything I go through one of God's lessons?
Will I go to Heaven?

I stay up through the nights.
Will I reach new heights?
Lord tell me everything will be alright.
Now I think I want to be in love with the lights.
I don’t want to fall to a Price.
Lord tell me everything will be alright.

I stay up through the night.
My eyes are getting heavy.
Am I ready to sleep?
Because Sleep Could be Deadly

My Life for Yours

(about the two wars)

I gave my life for you, 
My grit was your prosperity, 
So that you could do. 

I swallowed at the task, 
Girded myself bravely, 
Prepared to have a mask. 

When self-awareness engulfed, 
And loneliness overcame, 
Determination was loved. 

I fought a man every time, 
I faced the thwarting enemy, 
No easy game of mine. 

I strove to either succeed,
Or to sacrifice my everything, 
But the opposition to impede. 

I thought of family and you, 
Freedom and liberty, 
And the rightness of the two.

4 - Messenger from the Dead

Alas there is no more confusion,
finally found my last conclusion.
Expect me as if Jesus will return,
from a ghost to a realm of concern.

Your dreams are portals like doors,
welcoming spirits into hasten wars.
Leaving the thoughts without trust,
keeping your fears in much disgust.

And though you sought no consequence,
deeds that confirm a wicked malevolence.
Awaiting in your nightmare of screams,
enjoy what is left amongst your dreams.

Cancer Survivor

I spent almost month in a hospital room
This ever worst sick was so much and doom.
Chilling so bad in a mild quiet night,
Freezing to death like I was losing my sight.

Lying on a white bed and feeling this pain.
Too excruciating and made me insane.
Medical tests were examined crucially,
Days were softly killing me physically.

Delivered my body in the operating room,
Wanted to extend this life and make it well bloom.
Hours of terror tortured me so ruthless
Felt heavy stitches which made me so breathless.

Years passed and I’m all too well.
Survived this disease given from hell.
I’m a cancer survivor! Fighting for life!
Saving myself for loved ones in life.

How do you expect me to be less of a pessimist and more of an optimist. When you’re pessimistic about my optimism.

I Bleed White - success

I bleed white
I am feared
hating each sight 
behaving wierd.

skeptical to everything
reluctant to each
like a lone king
who to everyone beseech

Trembling lips 
and numb fingers
sweating forhead sips,
mind's sap and lingers.

often swooning around
and hiding behind
can be seen dead on ground
I am success hard to find.

Inevitable Bear

Oh lonely Inevitable Bear,
Padding claws, death in white
Sorrow in recurring nightmare
Instinct’s test; fight or flight?

Camouflage against the fence,
A challenge; my subconscious fear
Ominous slowly moving silence,
“Let me in, there’s a bear out here!”

In Her Teen

We know her future could be bright
If not for death that snatched her dream
She was the queen among her mates
The few she left here said it all

If not for death that snatched her dream
While on earth she nurtured the best
The few she left here said it all
A jewel worth many to pens

While on earth she nurtured the best
She was the queen of her mates
The few she left here said it all
We know her future could be bright

Reflections: Intellectualism

To Dine, To Die;
Conversations spiral
While thunderous eyes
Grasp concepts to recycle.

Constant debt crisis
A political paradox
Grating social devices
Over the sorting of socks.

An endless groan
Argumental paralysis
The debate grants no throne.

Over a roast
Potatoes won't listen
To who talks the most.

"That point is so interesting"
The floor is open for chat
"What is real?" not a thing
"Meow" adds the cat.

when I die
I am certain 
that the material stuff  
I leave behind 
won’t cry

but maybe
a little sigh

A Monologue on Free Will and Choice

Between life and death, we destroy
     our sole reason for being here 
despite our lives' most hoped-for joy;
     can conflict's path remove what's dear
(to our tired souls),—and make us coy
     about a dream that's so, so near?

We, people who live for new hope
     (and seek peace in the face of strife),
together struggle to just cope
     and succeed, as if no one life 
is beyond saving in the scope 
     of the edge of the Reaper's knife. 

It would be more final to die,
     than to live and thrive and so give
ourselves the gift of knowing why;
     we sacrifice and must survive, 
than let success just pass us by 
     with no chance to ever arrive.

words words words

words words words 
and more words
separated by 
space and time
silences and breaths
spoken and written
make as we go
to give meaning to all
the truth
the lies

Seeking Peace

Sad eyes on a happy face
All alone, in a crowded place
Welcome to the other side
Of me

Money rich, but poor in spirit
Many ears, not one, could hear it
This is what my life has
To be

Rising up, while sinking farther
Destined to be, my own Martyr
This is what my eyes, choose
To see

With wealth, fame, and family ties
Living an unending lie
I will end this, painful

I give my word a breath of life
and those who give me strife
I willingly do what needs to be done
and do not wish to be won
I smile a smile that lights up any face
and hope to never disgrace
I do what I am taught to do
and that my help would be true
I clam my words together
and hope times will never weather
I do have some faith in all matters
and things to reach with ladders
I hope for many things in heart
and I cherish everyone that is part 
I do know one thing is set
and with my life I would bet
I will hold true to my words
and make my world good towards

Holy books says it all
You taught me how to crawl
This will never change
Never ends never fades
Dear God where you are?
Shattered piece of childish dreams
This will never change
Never ends never fades.

I can fight for all my life,
Not broken, not broken inside
Never be so frustrated,
Not going to commit suicide.

Fuc*ing faith will fall,
Mortals will stand tall
Hell and heaven are all the same
Live your life, don't die in vain

Only you and I can make 
A better world for tomorrow
Have faith in yourself
And wipe off the tears of sorrow

Make me scream, Make me cry
I'll never fail to try.
This night's has an end
No pain will remain

Just a Matter of Time

broken spindle lay on its side
the stair rail weakened 
Can an hour glass turn itself?
no one hastens the seeming repose

splintered spindle reclines in peace
raggedy doll's eyes are closed
and the hour glass gathers dust
objects jog her memories of a fight

spindle in one scarred hand
doll clutched in the other
she turns the hour glass over
day of new beginnings

Freddy's Adventure In The Maze 5

I wake up to the bright sun
Wondering if I'm alive or dead
My muscles ache and burn
As pain racks my throbbing head
I see that I am a bloody mess
And rise to my feet
I stand there feeling blessed
Under the sun's heat
I grab and pull my mask away
As I turn and look down
And there it is dead under the sun's ray
The creature laying on the ground
Confused I fall to my knees
As my brown hair shuffles in the breeze

To Be Continued...

What goes up must always fall down 
In a world that's constantly trimming 
Heroes set out to destroy the clown
An ending creates the beginning 

It's too hard to respect the deceiver 
An existence in control and regulation
Extremely skeptic but also a believer
In the beginning of an ending creation 

Drown in the river of mind's perception
What's held down still will swim up
Ascend in the spirit's proper direction
After sinking in this world closed up

Trickery throbs in the validity of time
Even in sleep it sustains its spinning
Lasting hurts, but demise is more sublime
What ends will create the beginning
