ONLY CHILD

People think only children are easy to spoil.
They take note when these children
lose their temper and boil,
because it establishes what they believe
only children need,
a firm spanking so they will learn to take heed.
When speaking about them,
folks imply that they...Read More

A Hidden Beauty
If you've ever been bullied, you wouldn't be too keen,
of the person who harmed you, who made you feel unseen,
and though they did you wrong and hurt you various ways,
you got older and realized, it was probably just a phase.

benefit of the doubt
never truly given
misunderstandings 
were initiated
would never be forgotten
would never be forgiven 
would remain 
hidden underneath 
the rug of resentment 
forever never truly 
able to be swept 
away from memory

Benefit Of The Doubt
8/12/16


Little by little
Bodies of water start to trickle
Because of there being no drizzle
And the sun continuing to sizzle

Droughts
Making it difficult for plants to sprout

Give others the benefit of the doubt
And next thing you know they want to take you out

A Safe State Of Affairs
Better safe than sorry?
Fallacy.
I say, better sorry than safe.
Even if brought, calamity.
Safe never dreams.
Safe never changes.
Safe found no new thing, new places,
a new people's strangeness.
New cultures, new stars, new planets.
Safe hides in fortified sameness.
Safe only discovered a sandy smile.
Flightless, oversized...Read More

give you the benefit of the doubt,

in all stages of thy maturity,
and wished you for prosperity,...Read More
