A Poem: To The Bottom of The Ocean

Life is short, and suffering is inevitable. Life is suffering and suffering is short. For so long I've held suffering in the palm of my hand, and for that I now understand. Life is short and but a small vapor. With a gust of wind it comes and goes. Vapor makes its way back to … Continue reading A Poem: To The Bottom of The Ocean

A Poem: Ego

Oh, Ego, how do you do? Don't you know I'm tired of you? As the light of the sun penetrates the horizon, I find an esoteric connection and you leave. Oh, True Self, how do you do? Don't you know that I'm fond of you? As the birds gossip and dance with wonder in the … Continue reading A Poem: Ego

A Poem: Enthralled

I'm not conceited or consumed with myself. I just have a lot going on in my head. I write a lot about myself because these are things I would have never said. Sometimes I'm infatuated with the idea of infinity and others I'm not, but I can't seem to get past the nots and that's … Continue reading A Poem: Enthralled

A Poem: Offense

I've been told that I'm offensive for telling the truth. I'm sorry that reality bothers you. I can't write one damn poem without it being sad, but I'm sure everyone is okay with that. People love how crude my honesty is until it exposes the darkness that they posses. I confess, most often you posses … Continue reading A Poem: Offense

A Poem: Dear Family

Dear Family, There's a lot of you who don't like the person I have become. There's a lot of you who don't understand who I am.

A Poem: Your Green Tin Roof

I hear the name of this church and fear and anger encompass my very body. I'm an embodiment of both anger and empathy, but I am yet to see the very roots that I had wither away as I process through my own hate. I'm sorry and I forgive, but forgiveness isn't a singularity and … Continue reading A Poem: Your Green Tin Roof

A Poem: Ally

When I left, I thought that I would escape your grasps. I can't fully run away from you. This system that I left behind is chasing me, and I'm tired and weary. My church has turned their back on me and my family is now, too. What am I supposed to do? I have fingers … Continue reading A Poem: Ally

A Poem: Rejection

There's a pathway that leads to rejection. It's where people think of you with objectification. I can't help but to hope that regret goes away, but I literally break myself to see joy on people's face. I can't help but to see this flame, but it's not what you think. I'm a mess, I'm rejected, … Continue reading A Poem: Rejection

A Poem: Statues

This weapon of war is now a statue. It's a prophecy of something that we can hope for. Bombs drop, people scream, Satan laughs, and everyone is searching for meaning. As war begins, darkness spreads over the world. "It's for God!" No it's not. It's for your own fears and moral constructs. We've gotten rid … Continue reading A Poem: Statues
