no blues here

haiku

everyone’s against me

or so I thought

had to get outta my head and out of the house.

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.

the blessing of the unnoticed

poetry

on my knees

with trembling hands

i ask the Holy Spirit

for peace

knowing I’m not perfect

but I’m still working

on my destiny

could it be

right in front of me?

the message is clear

insert some play time dear

all questions will be answered.

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…..

fairy don’t you weep

poetry

shook up and scared

want to call someone

feels like no one cares

they say pray on it

don’t let your mind stay on it

coming out

easy for some, harder for others

mixed messages in media

i wanna use Expedia

to get away far away

fairy don’t you weep, you talented

kind, original blooming orchid

your tribe is waiting

anticipating, getting to know you

witness

love and joy

for you are a gift to the world fairy boy.
