In The Echos Of Silent Confinement
Does crystallized carbon feel the pressure that
transforms it into diamonds?
Does gold cry out as heat purifies it by refinement?
You can hear the whines and whistles of a machine
when its gears are out...
The Love I Never Had
If I could, I would give you the love I never had
Growing up as a child, raised without a dad
I wish I could hold you, I wish I could kiss you
God, how much I miss you,
Watching you grow from jail is hard, communication is
Just received the heart-rending news late today,
My best friend died a sudden death yesterday.
When the whole wide world was completely a drain,
You were there to ease the unbearable pain,
Always helping to keep me mentally sane.
Now I’m having...
Tick tock goes the clock
Dripping down the walls
Melted wax and broken glass.
are on Epitaph for all time.
The final wave is on its way
Sent by Cybia's hand
a team of 3 to save the world
Aura's bracket shines bright
My childhood self looked down at me
from deep in the full moon’s face.
His eyes did not remember me,
for these eyes took their place.
He squinted his eyes and frowned and said,
“You look like a boy I knew”.
Just then when you tilted...
I Sometimes Wonder
I sometimes wonder does it really even matter.
Like these thoughts that go pitter patter in my mind aren’t worth saving.
Saying this all the while yet I still jo ‘em.
Sometimes I really wonder. Can a good man exist in such a cold world as...
At times I’d rather write my thoughts than sit and write my family.
Expressions of my youth reflect through truth and understanding.
The problem with that is understanding has been amiss.
So expressions of a twisted individual are what exist.
Should I take a razor...
The words I speak are true, if you do not believe me listen to the news.
You say nothing is going to happen, but have you forgotten disasters?
You say all is good and okay, but why do you stay?
I am the Lord your creator, so please let me do you a...
Benevolence and faith it takes
For friendship forged anew,
The mysteries of destiny
Then come gradually into view,
When the universe has crossed our paths
And our stars have been aligned,
We’ll find if all has...
I yearn for a woman
With tender bounteous bosom
And strawberry curls
Flowing free and unfurled
Over cheeks of rose petals
Adorned with freckles
Boys are students
Men are teachers,
Boys ask questions
Men give answers,
Boys run in gangs
Men organize teams,
Boys play house
Men build homes,
Boys make babies
Men raise children,
Boys will not raise their own child...
Hope to me is life. Without hope there is no life.
Hope is what keeps me breathing, hope that someday
things will get better. Hope that I can change,
that others will see that change.
Hope that the future will be less painful than the past.
A Fathers Prayer
The longing in my life is not a prayer for me, in the deep watches of the night I pray not selfishly.
I lift her life to you, her heart I know you love. I cannot protect her now below, please protect her from above.
You see her needs as I cannot, you...
“In Search I Might”
Somewhere along my train of thought,
A sudden rush created a spark.
A spark that flowed within my soul,
Longing for a friendship that would grow.
Nothing more than sincere rapport,
Built on loyalty, trust and more.
The first time I held you,
So small and brand new;
Tears came to my eyes;
And I whispered, “I love you”.
The first words you spoke,
Were music to my ears;
I was the one you ran to,
And got you through your fears.
The people around you don’t seem to care anymore
So much lies and secrets you wonder what friends are for
Nobody to talk with because their hearts are closed
They make jokes, you shed a tear and feel so alone
I’m no different, I’m just like you...
All around nothing but white
But everywhere you look, you can see signs of life
A snowman dressed with grandpa’s old clothes
The little children make Frosty with a smiling pose
The joy of life can never be more present
The presence of snow is always its...
You will never know what a letter can mean until you have been where I am, or been through what I’ve been through.
I’m confined to a world behind four walls where no one can see me, and I receive no calls or visits.
Often I sleep and wake up alarmed, thinking that my family,...
That file is not me;
It does not accurately present my personality,
Nor does it portray my true identity.
It’s merely a biased summary;
Highlights of my life’s mistakes used to characterize me into the villain that the system needs me to be for the...
I am from the tree that birthed the leaf
Which fed the caterpillar who evolved into itself.
I am self with the universe. I – AM – WE
Equals ME – are eternal, in that sense, death is only promised to circumstance.
For like the tree whose leaves fall...
You took my kids away from me
and they don’t even live with you
and the fed’s did too.
You put me on child support,
But you can eat too.
The fed’s fabricated my case
And your life is fabricated too.
One night I had a dream, it left a tale to tell.
I dreamed I saw an Angel. Poor thing he was not well.
His body was bruised and battered. His wings, ripped and torn.
I saw that he could barely walk he was tired and worn.
I walked right up and asked him, “Angel”,...
Don’t Damn Me
You wouldn’t believe what I’ve seen
If you seen it in a dream
You couldn’t walk in these shoes
If I taught you to
I’m not tryin to mock you dudes
But I come off cocky rude
Wit a f*** you attitude
Plus a crooks smile
What is life without the urge to wanna strive
What’s it like to be earth bound but destined to fly
How do you find what’s unknown, tho meant to hide
Without time is distance defined
Without a lie how can I achieve
For you to believe this is me...
Share My Pain
Yes I did some lines
So I could try to find
How to feel fine, so I hit rewind
I’m crushing down these pills
I’m rollin’ dolla bills
Trying to kill off my feels
But I’m lost in these fields
Of oxycontin trills
The pain is bone...
What sensation to be this amazing
I’m collecting many praises
From all these different faces
Tell’em who’s the greatest of’em all
Yea I took some falls
Might’ve stumbled in the halls
But I climbed every wall
While walking every bridge...
chipped paint, rusty doors
stained steel, and cracked floors,
a black rose
rose for an encore.
Rooted by tears of spilled dreams,
and the soil of being deemed
unenviable for life’s theme;
The way we feel
On mocking taunts
Spieled for our kneel.
Do you - Be you
In the battle
Verses of you
Turn down the bass
On the music
Tuned to debase
Dreams of Reality?
Last night I had the most beautiful dream
It was so real or so it did seem
I woke up from my slumber and a visitor appeared
It was you standing there, your eyes filled with tears
I pulled you close and whispered, “Baby don’t cry”
Some things are worth
Too important to
Allow someone else
Especially one who’s
That he could overlook
And mother’s tears,
Then murder what she created
