One Year

Can’t believe it’s already been a year since signing up on WordPress.

Many things has changed over the year. Still many more to come. Endurance must prevail.

Art Of Poetry

Poetry

How wonderful

Magnificent you are

Showing me places

I’d never imagined
Blessed relief

From years of pain

Healing begins within

A lesson taught by you

Truly a modern day miracle
Oh poetry,

Where would I be now?

If we never crossed paths

Most likely still lost

Wandering around without a clue
I thank you dear poetry

For opening locked doors

Showing me a brand new world

In the past I scoffed at the word

It wasn’t time; I wasn’t ready yet

Me Against The World ( Lyric )

Most of my life

Has been impressing others

Only ending being blamed

Gone out of my way

To be shoved aside
Me against the world

When I was down on the ground

They walked right over me

Without a care in their thoughts

Why should I waste my time on them?
Making everybody happy

Impossible to even try

Sooner or later

The ones you would of died for

Will eventually leave
Me against the world

When I was down on the ground

They walked right over me

Without a care in their thoughts

Why should I waste my time on them?
How many days and nights

Spent crying from hopelessness

The pain and suffering I’ve felt

Was nothing but entertainment

Enjoying my torment, misery
Me against the world

When I was down on the ground

They walked right over me

Without a care in their thoughts

Why should I waste my time on them?

Comparisons

Looking at my life

It has changed dramatically

Feels like two different lives

Sharing the same body and mind

Perhaps unaccepting of the other
I can’t helped but compare

Trying to figure out the changes

Which version of me was better

Maybe it’s not an improvement 

Perhaps worser than before
My younger years zoomed by

Everything was done in a hurry

Never known to be patient

Always rushing somewhere

Enjoying, perhaps a little too much
All the things which gone unnoticed

Didn’t have the time to identify

What were important to me

Self absorbed and naive 

Too much daring for my own good
Now been much older

I tend to over think things

Seems my self confidence has gone

Along with my courage and daring

Resulting in nothing being done
To be continue

Forever Years

Dusts blown away

Carried along by the wind

Erasing traces of lives

Evidence, saying we were here

Blown away throughout time
Rainfalls, washing away

Proof that we once existed

Finishing wind’s left overs

Footprints of those from yesterday

Left imprinted in the sands; forgotten
In a hundred years from now

Others shall walk the same paths

Without knowing there were others

Sharing the same feelings and pain

Experiencing similar problems
Life, doesn’t last long

Never seems to be enough

No matter how hard we tried

Unfair, leaving those behind

To walk through life alone

Nightmare

N ight after night

I mages full of horror

G hostly figures

T ime after time

M anaging to instill fears

A wakening scariest thoughts

R eliving all the terrors

E verytime shadows appear

Redemption 

R oad to redemption

O vercoming weaknesses

N ever surrender; never retreat

Power Of Words

Motivation, inspirational

Harmful; destructive effects

Words are neutral

Applied by ones intentions

Uplifting or deflating
Historically proven

Rise and fall of nations

Direct results by words

Affecting the hearts and souls

Awakening something within
Sometimes spoken in anger

Heat of the moment, emotional

Untrue yet devastating

Lasting, lingering awhile

Perhaps; never disappearing 
Power to create or destroy

Words for which we communicate

Lay deeper than is known

Unleashing hidden potentials

Far beyond any wild imagination
