poetry

Roller coaster or screaming lady

it’s more than death

I see it as a rebirth

of the new you

the stress and pain of

this existence

scream it away

there’s hope its a new day.

emotional to the max

poetry

Quick! Tell yourself every bad thing.

Quick! Think of all the worse outcomes.

Quick! Now did it do any good?

Message to self, for our mental health.

The day was a bad day only cause i made it so.

I’ve yet to know how to let it flow.

Work in progress.

trouble in the world today

poetry

rage boiling

you’re offended by everything

when will you smile again

go through this earth like a child again

no need for an answer

hate takes over like a cancer

re-center, play all day

balance, rinse and repeat.

you’re only human.

Realizations

poetry

moving fast

some friends stay in the past

new friends emerge

on the verge of a breakthrough

universe see’s you

in the background helping

clear out the clutter

there’s nothing better

than realizing your worth.

I’m still here, but I’ve thought about it

Not being here.

Driving on an overpass, how quick to jump

This too shall pass.

Looking at the bottle of pain pills, easy

Takes the pain away.

Looking into the future, it’s not clear

Sadly it’s filled with fear.

Injured from years Dr’s say neglect

And yet

I’m writing this. Am I the strong friend

The one no one checks on. Sometimes

take it day by day, telling the enemy go

away . I don’t want none of your time,

I got mine and I’m gonna be fine.

I learned of a local news reporter today

Who took her life, didn’t know her but

Tears automatically.

On a random night in ICU , i was there

Asking God to take me away

The toughest headache, the sharpest nerve

Pain, more drugs came, the feeling left

For a second.

The point is I’ve been there no judgement

What gets me through?

I’ve asked forgiveness for the wretched

Person i was to merge with the grown up

Man i am today.

Music also has been a great relief, songs

That have preached to me, spoken to me

One such song is the title to this freewrite

“Hold up the light” 3 amazing voices I

Heard talking to me and i thought

Maybe I’m the light? Is this what I’m here

For? Love, Light ,Fight for what’s right?

IDK life is crazy man. You still got me.

I ask for guidance Universe. let me be your

Vessel. I ask humbly to be a light in this

World of darkness…..
