Pioneers

How blessed we are
To have heard
The songs
Of those who sang before,
To have learned
To rise
From those who rose before,
To have seen
Our worth
When they demanded more.

The ones who came before us
Had no one who came before.

Sanity

I’m somewhat
New
To this dreaming
Thing,
This imagining
Outcomes
I only wish
I would see.
No certainty.

Please
Tell me:
How do dreamers
Keep
Their sanity?

Endurance

You can’t heal it,
So please,
Don’t steal
My suffering.
Your remedy won’t work for me,
As mine won’t work for you.
We cannot guide each other
Where we haven’t traveled to.

Sometimes I need
You to leave,
To let me hold
My pain in peace,
With no cause
And no cure,
Just a lesson
To endure. 

Aging

How old
Must I be
Before I become
Young
And wild
And free?

One Day

One day
I’m going to be
Truly
Madly
Deeply
Happy
And no one
Is going to stop me

Lost and Found

Lost and found
Identity.
When I find
A piece of me,
I lose one
In return.

Present to Past

Time runs
And we chase it,
Open hands
And hungry eyes,
Until lazy minds
Erase it,
Fill the gaps
With wishful lies.

Self-Pity

It’s a sickness
And a sadness,
That lonely desperation,
With the jealousy
And melancholy
It breeds.

Despite advice,
All my suggestions
To improve your situation,
You stay immobile,
Wrapped in pity as
It feeds.

Two Roads

One paved by machine,
Lined by flowers, neat and pristine.
Succumb to the tameness.
Become a victim of their sameness.

The other has a history
Of taking travelers, full of bravery,
Through twists of uncertainty
To meet either doom or destiny.
