I'm not perfect
I may not be perfect but I'm still here.
Maybe I wasn't there for you.
Maybe I didn't fight hard enough or you, 
 for your rights.
I didn't fight the way you thought I should have.
I may not be perfect but I'm...Read More

Polluted
I confess…
This city is the reason why cancer exists 
I tend to build buildings too high 
And you burn too much coal,
Thinking every room needs to be warm

So I confess…
My lungs are beginning to feel the toll 
I feel trapped
And...Read More

A CLICHE ROMANCE
When it came to dating I had a soul full of sorrow
But all of my friends told me to hang in there
When we met I felt you looking into my soul
My soul laid bare with all protection lost
They say absence...Read More

The crack of dawn
   The crack of the bat...
A crack in the pavement
   Fall through the cracks...

Crack cocaine
   A crack fighter pilot...
A clever wisecrack
   That cracked me up...

One chance, one life, to get it right,
To love each child with all your might,
To show God's love, His light, and truth,
To invest godliness within our youth.

To heed the call and open a door,
To protect and save one child, one...Read More

Premium Member The Slacker
While others fall through the cracks of society,
I confront every crack with a willing dive and leap.
I am the greatest slacker that has ever come to be,
never contributing anything to anything or anybody,
always taking the path of least resistance religiously.

Don't Fall Through The Cracks
When shadows creep on a darkened streets

and the lampposts have gone dim

When trouble lurks around each bend

and life's happy path turns grim

Will I be there to catch you

before you fall on through the cracks

Will I be there to guide you

Premium Member The Enemy's Child : collab with Carolyn D

The battles on the field are harsh and tough
The looting in their wake engorged with greed
Abundant spoils of war are not enough.
 
Atrocious in their acts that make no sense
The women and the girls are taken slaves
Abusing them with lust...Read More

Loveless
As the days go by you rub away at me 
and peel back the pages of my skin
Soon I shall be raw, sore and broken 
As you undo me 
So you have undone me again

And I am me and you...Read More

Do I matter
I find myself wondering if I matter in the scheme of things
If i could make a difference in the world where there is chaos
Brothers fighting brothers, for no reason other than who is right
Many out there who fall through the...Read More

CRACKS IN REALITY

I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF MY REFLECTIONS
IN THE CRACKED MIRRORS OF OUR RELATIONSHIP.
AS THE FISSURES WIDEN, PIECES OF ME SLIP INTO.
I FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS, INTO DIMENSIONS
LYING IN WAIT ON THE OTHER SIDE.

Do We Choose Whom We Love And IGNORE Those We Don't
Why Do We “Choose” Whom We Love…   And Ignore Others?

Why do we often “choose” those we love… 
And ignore those we don’t?
It’s a good thing that Christ doesn’t do this!  He won’t!

Far too often,… People attending church...Read More

tired walk
My mind is fried,
my soul is weak,
Searching  for strength,
I can keep.
Holding on with all I have,
so I don't fall through the cracks.

the chronicles of minor men part-2
pitchforks heavily leaned upon, 
puffy cumulus clouds drifting slowly
 across the summer sky, 
 parted by a wheather vain of
 a rooster crowing in the wind.
 
 bundles of hay rolled up bask in the heat, 
  like giant...Read More

Rewind Focus Blind
For the memories
I carry with me
The visions blurry
The past endured me
I weathered the storm
But I didn’t plan
Now poetry is my forum
To let everyone know
That I never did land
I lost my way to the show
There is no good goings
Greetings just cover...Read More

Where Is My Pride?
You fall through the cracks, 
It is dark down here.
Sounds behind your back,
They are not clear.

Should you run ,
Should you hide?
This is not fun,
Where is my pride?

Chills up your back,
They are getting closer.
Are they going to attack?
I wish I were...Read More

Choosing the Path of Most Resistence
Don't fall through the cracks,
through the floorboards
past the pipes
hot water hissing
grey metallic stun gun dull.
Don't land on the basement steps,
slipping on down
bumping the back bone
breaking the fall
with your body gone white like you know it so well.
Don't let the swallow...Read More
