STRUGGLE

                                  Struggle to survive.
                            The world will eat you alive.
                               Bite back or be dinner.

INSIGNIFICANT

                                  Forgotten eyes see
                            The shadows are no longer
                                       Insignificant
______________________________________________________________
WORLDLY WILDERNESS

                                   a concrete playground
                                   Wickedness wilderness
                                breathe, there is no sound

______________________________________________________________

RELEASE

                                  Feed me all my fears
                                  I am too afraid to cry
                                 Release my inner child.

______________________________________________________________

STRENGTH

                                     I make the pain stop
                                    Powerful determination
                                       I will not give up.
______________________________________________________________

DUALITY

                                     The skin of the soul
                                     Masculine or feminine
                                            See duality.

Tears in a Bottle

Tears in a Bottle
doors open, doors close wasted opportunities – tears in a bottle

Love and Learn

One learns nothing
till one falls out of love....
rebuilding life

You May Not Agree

Oh the cock may crow
but hens deliver the goods...
more to life than sex.

Fingered

Chamber of secrets
Locked in wisps of steel incense
Swabbed sulfur din

Tranquil Waters

Her dark eyes reflect
Tranquil waters beyond dusk
When she does not cry.

Say it now!!!

Give me my life back

A caring One

A caring one is more 
Than sweet fragrance,
Even when sweet fragrance ends,
The caring one remains...

Fornicated bliss
Devoured, unearthed, blinded
Tomorrow lacks sight

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

Pieces

A heart divided

Worry-Wart

that I might run out of things

Her scented perfume
another flower with toes,
as I bend to breeze....
