Snack on this (thoughts in waiting)

life, poetry, poetry creative writing


I enjoy eating 

Fast foods, Snackfoods, good foods, bad foods 

It’s my armor

Invisible, seen, antisocial, mean

I choose this

Hard to quit, Easy to get, goes down smooth 

It’s how I cope

Sexuality, obesity, debt, stuck

I pray about it 

Love, money, purpose, relationships

It gets better, doesn’t it?  Hope.

The world can be tough

Without your brain making it so

It can be sometimes hard to put yourself in go.

 Be Tender with yourself /myself/ourselves 

I wish I knew all thee answers

Always searching for something more 

I’m learning to adapt 

To love ā¤ļø 

To accept 

Myself as I am

Work in progress

I hope to purchase my uniform…

Sitting here thinking about you…..

I want to play in the rain with your essence 

Eat pizza, while we disagree with pineapple 

On that said pizza, I relent it’s ok 

Because I’m eating with you

Riverfront walking , our fears talking

Will someone mind if we kiss? It’s been 

So long, that walk from the parking lot

To one of many favorite spots. Fuck’em 

We dress alike but people can’t see the 
Uniform we share is just smiles and happiness 

between you and me.

a pinch of fear, a trace of hope…

creative non-fiction, life, poetry, poetry creative writing

It’s all about me

The way I’ve learned to be

Take care of myself, cause no one else will 

Going ever so slowly through the fog

Legs, heart hurting from it all 

Constant moving but in place 

It’s hard to hold up my face 

Because then you’ll see the truth 

I fake it until I make it, shame there’s a

Trace would my family and friends think

Me a disgrace?

I talk and talk and talk with no much follow 

Through… gotta begin anew
This prayer I Trace on my lips from my heart

Dear God,

Hear me loud and clear 

I’ve walked through life with life altering fear

Trust faltered; willpower diminished 

We talk a lot, my mind cloudy, mouth hot

I ask please forget me not

Things I wanna do but scared of failure 

I ask for your guidance for the big step 

I want to take 

Be near me, talk with me 

Help me understand that you help those whom

Help themselves that’s how you lend

A helping hand. Amen

Charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent

Survival of the fittest in the world today 

It’s all in me, can I let it out? 

Downplayed, afraid of what others may say

How can he Radiate such, such beauty, 

Such grace. I mean he only takes pictures of his

Face; body isn’t perfect but folks feel he’s 

Conceited because he doesn’t talk to

Everyone; Arrogant because he knows what he 

Wants; speaks his mind didn’t stutter one time

Truly feeling he’s one of a kind

Took some time for him to find

The jewel that lies inside 

Buried under hurt, dirt, seaweed, broken glass 

Honey, insecurity and neglect.

Gentle in speech, large in spirit 

I’m on my way…to be continued

Lamenting on truest of lives…

creative non-fiction, life, poetry

I did plan it

I had no Qualm; about going through with it

The date was set

I need to get things in order 

Fire up the tape recorder 

Let everyone know I love them 

It’s about me, wasn’t about you

Get outta my head

Build a new life 

Try new things, maybe go clean 

What am I trying to accomplish?

What am I trying to escape?

Sometimes I feel like it’s too late 

But it’s not, it’s ego talking 

Universe help me out

I wanna get these feelings out

Stuck, lost, off track, astray

Moving, found, clear, focused 

It’s what I’m after…..

Come One, Come All

creative non-fiction, life, poetry, World events

Here ye.    Here ye.

Everyone is welcome 

Come into my home 

Tell me your stories

Life experiences and such

Welcome aboard 

My train, no judge or jury

No hurry to confirm 

To the harshness of society 

Bring your gifts, share your talents 

Let’s all learn together 

Color blind in my eyes

We all have the same insides 

My place  so kiss your girl, kiss your dude

Kiss both on different days, respect 

Hold hands in harmony, peace

Be with us, Hospitality to 1000th degree

Come stay with me

Take me to your land so I can learn all I can

A great time had by all

I promise one and all

Universe my mind and heart is open…..

scared, so you write through it….

creative non-fiction, essay, life

Dreams are real, vivid productions, high quality writing. Making them come true could be the hard part, afraid to share your art never knowing if you could brighten someone’s day or save a life. 

Stuck in the same place , to everything and everyone you know. The encouragement is there from your peers and everywhere but you can’t find it inside yourself, it’s like your deaf to your own praise.

Prayers and meditation that’s what they say, invest in your life, things work out great that way. I’ve been diligent in this practice all along but it’s not enough to make me strong. Strong enough to make that move, Pursue my dreams.

Life is always changing, I’m still holding on. I’ll have to do it and adjust later. I may fail which makes me shudder with fear, but what else do I do dear? Cry about it, sulk about it, whine about it. Will that make things better? I doubt it.

It’s tiring.

Tenacious and Strong (Precious Metal)

life, poetry

              

I want it. I need it.

My breath I can see it

The victory can taste it

The solitude I face it

Unshakable the drive

Too bad I hold it deep inside

So many roads to take

Can’t I just choose one avenue and be great?

Unwavering in my approach 

Determined in my education 

Learning as much, as fast as I can

Trying to be great, not mediocre man

Take it seriously but not so seriously 

Take it easy but don’t be easy

To be fooled into doing things that 

Take you off your path

I will succeed, thrive

I will survive, strong-willed

Practice makes perfect 

Comparison may be certain 

Tho Tenacious I deserve this 

A life I love ā¤ļø

Take this (fortune) and run…

life, poetry


What would you do if it came to you?

Would you give it away, drink it away

Use it to slay all the demons that may

Come in the night, taking all of the light

Buy a new house, get up off the couch

Make your dreams come true

Give it away to family or charity 

To some they are one and the same 

Use it to shift blame

On all the horrors the world see’s

Feed a hungry country, feed a hungry soul

They say money comes with problems 

They say money solves all problems 

Do you listen to what they say?

Hide away, maybe change your name

Help take care of some of the pain

Of comparison, of ego, of wanting, needing 

Be chill, buy a car, a significant other

Would it teach you to love one another 

Fortune like this could change ones life

Enhance it, break it down

Get the tools make it last, time goes fast

One day your broke, next day you’re rich

But it’s hard to fix

What’s all inside, nope money can’t hide

So what would you do?

Would you let this money handle you?
