Every tender touch,
every waking moment
solely in service of us,
yet our world left you broken.
That’s so tough,
to maintain belief in something above,
when life kicks and kicks
though you haven’t asked for much.
Every minute meaningful,
not a wasted second,
so even if time is all we have,
that’s fine as time is precious.
What is constant in a world of moments,production is in abundance yet so many are still hopeless?So what is always in a world of ‘never’in a world of sometimes,what’s forever?Dreamt a thousand dreams.Hoped forevermore,for brighter days for the pooror just a chance at it,a shot at a future, a slice of hope,because while at times it shines here,the rains been constantand the joy has always been brief,yet the pains so constant.

No silver spoon,
I only know drug antidotes,
only thing to ease my mind
when the demons call.
Five years my junior,
but the reason I became a man.
On these words I stand…
your life’s my only plan.
Jungle made of concrete,
seen no easy years,
life’s so unfair…
can still feel your soul in the air.
I always heard talk of ‘what’s meant to be’ told time and time again that life works wonders.
Time after time I’d disagree.
‘Who’s to say what’s meant for me?’
who’s to say I matter so much, so much that there’s a plan out of reach, some divine notion, a greater guidance of sorts… on what grounds do I base such arrogant assumptions?
On what evidence do we assume our lives more worthy than the next…
our lives more righteous than the past?
If the individual is paramount, if ‘special’ is what we are,
then by what criteria is that marked?
this is all I ask
If you must walk alone
then so be it.
Leave it to the wind
and never look back…
step out alone
and be okay with that,
but if it’s love
one day they’ll see that.
One day the mistakes make sense.
You start to understand
that you’ll make mistakes again,
you know you get things wrong
and somedays things really aren’t alright,
but you’ll be okay,
because they’ll okay with that.
And they’ll be okay
so be patient and wait for that.
