Defining Moment

Right here, right now

This place, this time

Defines the truth within
Yesterday; shall remain in the past

Future; shall always be out of reached

Past untouched by time

Tomorrow lays only possibilities

Which may or may not come true
Light casts shadows in the dark

Dark allows light to shine brightest

Opportunities are presented

Even in the darkest of times

Life Over Fear

Nightmares, plagued by fears

Darken thoughts lingers all around
Greatest of fears revealed

Returning to a place called home

Discovering there’s nothing left

A life once familiar; unrecognizable
Failure to meet expectations

Mine above all else

After years of preparations

Only to be caught unprepared

Unfamiliarity, winning in the end
At least within these walls

Knowing my position in society

Out there; awaits another world

Amongst many watchful eyes

Eagerly waiting the moment I fall

Along The Way

Life had taken

Many unexpected turns

Positive and negative outcomes
Along the way

Stumbled, lost myself

Fallen down many times

Followed anothers path but my own
Somewhere along the way

Refusal of staying down

Revealed my path once more

By searching, knowing the person within
Along the way

Difficult at times it may appear

An end awaits every journey

Regardless of how it seems

Moments doesn’t last forever

Against the darken skies

A lonely figure fills the night
Magical spells casts by moonlight

Deep within dreams and mind

A place to dare imaginations

Beyond reality; hope lives once more
Since the dawn of time

A time keeper for seasons

Shown upon different faces in the sky

A reminder, some peace of mind

Everything shall change; then begins again

My World

Within these walls

Time moves erratically

Differs greatly, from general perception

Harsh lessons learnt

Taught cruelly, without empathy

Without space to run nor hide

Left broken at times, yet stronger

Tested extremely

More so than most others

Trials no mere mortals experienced

Rebuilding the soul and heart

Only to destroy it utterly; completely

Desperation, through longing

Holding onto anything possible

Clinging, hoping beyond reason

Within these walls; I was forged

Molded from the worse of us

Once In Forever 

Once In Forever
Happiness feels; as if in a dream

Everything else a nightmare

Unable to wake, leaving that world
Happiness, designed not to last

In those precious moments

Powerful feelings of emotions

Coursing throughout body and mind

A sense of peaceful harmony
Rare encounters

Special by design

Irreplaceable in nature

Lives changes forever

By touches unforgettable
For a moment in time

Everything feels so right

Unfortunate experiences

Happened to someone else

Another life, another time

A Time Will Come 

The fallen

Fell only to rise

Higher than ever before

A time will come

When hardship is bearable

Acceptance of both good and bad

Light and darkness are as one 

A time will come

Adversity seeks for mercy

Bending, trembling in the eyes

Of those once thought unworthy

Weak, not worth a second glance

A time will come

Answers are known

Without another question waiting

Crystal clear in its deliverance

Not a trace of doubt remains

A time will come

Maybe tomorrow or the next

A year, probably a life time

Comes as a surprise, unexpectedly

Not a question of if; but when

Guardian Angel 

Heavenly divine

Powerful beyond measure

A guilding light

More precious than treasure
Sacred contract

Before birth agreed

Until death concludes

The holy pact fulfilled 
Struggles are necessary

Through the journey of life

Your deeds I’ve noticed

Results could’ve been alot worse

You’ve lessen the blow
My guardian angel

Who knows me so well

Protective yet strict

My teacher, my light 

Time to shine bright

Unfortunate bad luck

One event after another 

Consumed by life itself
Darker the world appears

Emotions, feelings

Slowly strips away

Replaced by nothingness

Heavy, crushing weight
Hope and dreams

Abundant, once upon a time

Another life long ago

Without despair, being as one
Spiral knows only one way

Falling, deeper down

Till there’s nothing left

Of the person you once were

Lost for eternity, forever more

S carred, in the name of justice
