The Breeze Takes It

I’m supposed to be honest but you fail to tell the truth

The birds out of the cage but it should’ve been you to let it loose

We’re only as sick as our secrets and I hate that you’re bruised

One day I hope you understand that hiding things is considered a lie too.

 

When will I learn to lose all these earthly expectations

My hopes for love and mankind are to broad imagination

We will all let each other down, I’ll end that thought with exclamation!

 

I’m sitting on the beach writing to let it go

It’s just anger, distrust, fear, me and the moonlights glow

As the waves crash on me I will continue to row

And with the oceans breeze I’ll let the pains flow.

 

 

Realistically I have no control and what will be will be

And I know there’s a Power that’s much greater than me

The Power I call God and God can set me free

Where my feet stand now is really as far as I can see.

A Dream – Love Story

 

I’ve finally seen her, it’s the girl I’ve always loved

She looks just as beautiful as ever, she was sent from up above.

 

I try to avoid conversation because I know what she does to me

She says I would’ve told you but I can’t because of he.

 

I said it’s ok, but it really never is

She’s all I’ve wanted she’s the family and mama of my kids.

 

But we were never able to make it

And I can’t help but love you, the flame remains lit.

 

I could no longer hold the wonder I asked and “I’m moving is what she said”

The tears moved up from my heart and released out my head.

 

I tried to be understanding but my response back to her

Was I’m trying to let go but something else should occur.

 

I’ve tried to move away but I’m wherever I go

I’ve tried to escape but my addiction would just show.

 

You tried to tell me to quit but I never could

And for you I always thought I would.

 

I cried for years and I still do to this day

But it was a different guy standing there the day your dad gave you away.

 

I told you I wished you the best but I had to go

Tear filled eyes I turned and took some steps and what happened next I wouldn’t know.

 

I walked in the distance wiping the uncontrollable tears from my face

about the time I looked up at the sky I heard the beautiful girl yell wait.

 

I turned around still teary eyed and scared to death

The girl came running jumped in my arms and stole my breathe.

 

A loving smile followed by a powerful kiss

We were spinning circles blocking traffic and nothing else in the world seemed to exist.

 

That day we left together and we never looked behind

Walking away holding hands knowing it was true loves perfect time.

“Shining Through My Tears”

Have you ever doubted your purpose? Have you been trying to beat the depression and escape the deep end of the pool? It’s that little piece of hope and faith that’ll pull you through. Life’s all about being open minded, honest, and willing. It’s about knowing there’s a power greater than yourself. This poem was written on a darkened mind racing night full of self hate and a dash of hope.

Let me show you the good, so I can hide the bad

smile real big so you want see me sad

sometimes I can’t take life, I get so mad

I suffocate, then I remove the bag.

 

I have too much to see to give up just yet

I have to keep breathing, so I catch my breath

I know everything that comes my way is just a test

I pass them one by one and plan to do so with the rest.

 

I’m staying in school and have to finish this degree

even though life’s a struggle and shit don’t come free

we to often try to face too much alone and we lag to get on a knee

God I pray that you please don’t give up on me.

 

There is reasoning behind each and every thing

you just have to figure out what’s worth the pain.

 

Figure it out and that’s what you fight for

the things that aren’t you walk out and shut that door

along the path to success, trust me, you’ll again fall to the floor

that’s when you find it in yourself to fight some more

put back on that smile and never show if your hearts sore

and to keep you lifted up is what friends are for.

 

Love all people and show them respect

the ones that don’t, sooner or later will regret …

 

… Because feeling all alone is no fucking fun

so be nice to others and deliver them some sun.

 

I want a good job, a family, the American Dream

but sometimes I wonder what if that’s not what’s meant for me

until then I’ll keep my head up, in order to see

because I have too much potential to give up in a world with endless possibilities.
