Brothers in Adversity
Brothers in adversity, how many have you
One, a dozen or a few
Take a minute, breathe a little
Think, take a while 
Pause, Halt, Stop

How many have you
You see that eight-letter word

Premium Member Help me please
Where do I begin
To ask the question
And do I divulge my sin
Reveal obsession
Please I need your wise advice
I’m walking on thin ice
What if I pay the price

Will I regret this choice
Do I roll the dice
Trust my inner voice
Play this lottery...Read More

I have seen the Sword of Anguish
As it seared its blinding wrath across the faces of millions.

Released in painful droplets of anger and fear.

As he speaks...Read More

it started to rain on the night that we first decided
we staked a mortal claim toward the things we put away

To Be Alone
I go to the city
To be alone…
Distraction
Calling me away
From myself
Isolating my
Memory
Burying my
Thoughts
In endless concrete
Passing 1000 people
Never meeting
One
Never meeting
One
Who will tell me
About myself
Never meeting
One
Who will tell me
What is real
Never meeting
One
Who will ask the question
Why
In my darkest
Most confused
Moments
I go to the city
—to...Read More

Berry Picking
The old man arrived a gleam in his eyes;
He announced with aplomb “berries are in”
The buckets are clean, the weather is fine;
Who wants to go berry picking with me?

No! No takers save one, I had the time.
So off we did...Read More

When We Place Blame
By: Tom Wright
12/18/98

If in denial and seeking one,
in whom to place the blame.
Ask the question have I done,
at some time the very same?

Point no finger though it be true,
judgmental we should not be.
For when one finger I...Read More

O, boisterous clouds,
Why do you pout on high?
With friction so among you,
Will lightening too,
Not soon cross the sky?

In bumping heads,
You cause the thunders burst.
Then in your sorrow weep
And once again your tears,
Quench earth's thirst.

I stand alone surveying...Read More

Why'm I Closest To Heaven Whenever I'm Going Through Hell

And poured it down the drain
All my demons sit laughing to themselves
As I swear it off again

My heart's still steady beating, as if I ran a race
My lips miss the feeling,...Read More

On The Way
We have created the tools for peace
