Elephant

poetry

I am

strong as I walk the plains

memory unmatched

i know all there is to gain

as a symbol, I give you luck

do with it what you will

as a totem I give you strength

fight another day I say

I make you stronger

than the average man

walk with head held high

be one with me

strong as

10,000 men , taking on the world

doesn’t matter if you’re boy or girl.

when you’re done

the world will know

I Me My fee fi foe!

Open Road

poetry

desert road from here to nowhere

full tank of gas

where would you go?

who would you see?

who would you be?

i won’t tell if you don’t

my plan someday.

Get Silly

poetry

comfortable shoes or none at all

new attitude

noise canceling headphones

great big cojones

salt-n-pepa, robin s, cece peniston,

black box, to name a few….

start with the groove

drop down into the pocket

feel it in your veins

ignore everyone around

bend your legs, arch your back

don’t turn around, the past is wack…

rhythm is going to get you

catch you and never release you

if the rhythm feels good to you baby let me

hear you say uh uh baby

your inner child thanks you

blues ballad

poetry

It’s hard

coming, going, never knowing

romantic love

sure there’s lust

but you can’t trust

everyone.

I open my mind and heart

that’s where I’ll start

maybe one day?

Hold Up The Light

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…..

eating from the honey pot

poetry

faces graze

intoxicating haze

don’t want it to stop

talk dirty

whisper in my ear

head goes down

your lips form a smile

the best is yet to come

you can’t control it

body shakes, breathing changes

I’m grinning, told ya so

Climax

be here now

poetry

while the gears are turning

overthinking a situation to the max

worries about the future

living in the past

wanting to feel joy

the universe says

the key is in this very moment

Present here now enjoy

do you feel it

the difference .
