The Two Winding Roads
The Two Winding Roads
        (Alice Advincula)

are two winding roads towards eternity.
One is smooth, brightly lit and broad,
the other one narrow, gloomy and cold.

A great multitude travel the...Read More

angry voices saying words that could doom the people,
playing with the hint of an apocalypse like name calling at school.

Brink of Disaster
Brink of Disaster

What all has come totally over me
Chills on arms am starting to see
Heard another song sung and played
My mind went of into space and strayed.

Thoughts and emotions moved me so
And my appearing face was all aglow
No longer would...Read More

Forgotten By Tomorrow
She stands at the edge of the precipice,
looking down towards her future.
The last tears that she will ever cry,
falling from her eyes, 
then falling into oblivion.
She watches them drop 
as they disappear forever.
Yet, she laughs in the face of death.

WHY THE WILLOW WEEPS
From seed to sapling it grew non-stop
On the tall majestic Mountain’s top
It spread its boughs and sank its roots
Deep into it’s fertile boots
But fear it did, though strong and stout
“What if the rains cease an’ begins a drought”

Soon it sheltered...Read More

Quiet Waters
Streams of blue fluid 
Flows downward 
As fragile carcasses decay 
Without a peep of a sound

We’re in the brink of disaster… 

Who invited such fear and anguish?
Who could lead us to quiet waters?

We bleed…
Polluting the waters below us… 
Trickling down...Read More

i dont love you
a drink from the bottle 
that held my youth
a clink in the glasses
a melded brew

on the brink of disaster
a welded chain hereafter
the staining ink and plaster
then held me like a master

all the cling and clatter
a belt that chokes no matter
what...Read More

Strenght for the Journey

Old Man On The Inside
Consuming time is hard
Harder than many people think
Your mind begins to wonder
Pushing boredom to the brink

The brink of disaster
Mind and body begin to work
Motionless your mind moves
Your body begins to hurt

Unsettled and settling
Who can compare between the two
Unfinished buisiness among...Read More

Let Them Go
You ever been surrounded in a room, but felt you were all by yourself?

No one was ever on your level, you felt high like a stealth,

Eliminate, the dead weight, before you start to sink,

They're all yes men in your circle...Read More
