Lights off

Trapped between walls
Tears glistening in the screen light
Hoping someone calls
Closing my teary eyes tight

Waiting for a buzz or ring
To feel wanted 
Feel the sting
Its clear you are unwanted 

Sing along to a sad song
Shed tears 
This is not where i belong
But its been like that for years 

Wait a little longer 
Maybe they will call 
The yawns are getting stronger 
No one misses me at all

Im a reserve human being
An option
Remembered when needed
Taken for granted

To think i give my all
To people who don't deserve a thing at all
I can't treat them the same
That's not who I am

Please don't cry
Its not worth it 
You did your best 
It was just not enough 
It never is

Dont shed tears
Be strong
It feels like no one loves you
But maybe someone does

Alcohol 

I wish i had alcohol
Even though im in pain
I wouldn't feel the hole

Makes me smile
Without a reason
Even though its for a while

It provides the happiness
Everything is good
Peace in the dizziness

With more confidence
Im happy and free
A glance at my face for evidence

No longer afraid
Of the judgment
My troubles fade

I no longer worry 
Just happiness and smiles 
With my vision blurry 

Can no longer see the maze
Cant even see a thing
Every bottle never...

Smiling in tears 

I find joy in being alone
Im free
But i feel pain when im lonely
Im in tears

There is Peace when no one is bothering me
But Violence in Silence when no one is looking for me

Embracing my weirdness
Telling myself "its okay"
Crying in my loneliness
Its the same every day

Asking and answering to my own voice
As lonely as I am i dont have a choice
At midnight im weak
Let my silence and tears speak

Tears on a weekend

To be happy the week has end
Staying home a trend
A cruel reminder i long for a friend

To spend the weekend alone
Imaginative happiness is all ive known 
With party music on my phone 
Watch me dance on my own 

Tears on a weekend 
Wondering when it will end 
Some flooding the dance floors 
Im slow dancing with chores

Videos of others as they enjoy
Enjoying other people's joy
But watching with a broken heart 
Wishing i could also be a part

Im complicated
Cant even understand myself
Sometimes i act strange
Things get too heavy for me

I isolate myself 
Shedding quiet tears 
I wont be in the mood to talk 
I let my silence do the talking 

No one can see im in pain 
Im really hurt inside 
Im writing it down 
I have no one to tell 

Life isn't going great for me
Im stuck
I don't know where to go
Im worried about my future 

I spend my days at home 
Even among people i feel alone 
Im too shy to meet new people

No such thing as equality
We all humans of different quality
Different races living in the same place
Chasing the same goals with a different pace

One dies and is quickly replaced
Living with priorities that are misplaced
Working hard for money that is never enough
Witness our dreams get blown away like chaff

Some aren't meant to succeed
Working jobs they hate so they can only afford what they need
Some make a million in a day some cant even make it through the month

"Hardwork p...

Hear the cries
As so many shut their eyes
Goodbyes without a reply
What we need money cannot buy

Flashing a bright smile 
In the depth of the eyes you see pain
Happiness is all for a while 
In a life we cannot explain 

Hidden tears 
Expressed through violence 
Pent up all these years 
Suffering in silence 

Those in pain cannot speak 
Afraid to be called weak 
Tears shed out of sight 
Comfort in the isolation of night

Smiles only in a photograph
In reality its hard to lau...

As the sun rises
Its another day of suprises
Sirens wailing
Rushing a heart that's failing

Red and blue red and blue
Blood oozing what else is new
Confusion on the scene
At the cemetery where its more serene 

Mothers in black crying
At the graves where lives are flying
Hearts cold as stone 
Tossing and turning in bed alone

Clinks of joy
"Cheers" as they enjoy 
Sweet smelling smoke
Tickling the nostrils of the broke

Music blurring loud
Rocking the drunk crowd
No worries...

Im young and Conflicted
Lost and worried
Weak and vulnerable
Im confused

I don't know who iam
What im good at
Im not confident at all
Im depressed 

Im an Overthinker
I cause myself pain 
Im lonely 
I don't feel important 

I try but i fail
Im unappreciated 
I feel worthless 
I don't know what im living for

I give my all but its never enough 
Its hard to look in the mirror 
I cry, sometimes I don't know why
But i cry

Somewhere In Between
In between heartbreak and ecstasy I'll meet you.
At the juncture of lust and innocence I'll embrace you.
Somewhere in the middle of a rainbow and storm clouds I'll see you.

In between black and white you'll meet me.
At the juncture of creation and destruction you'll embrace me.
Somewhere in the middle of the mundane and ethereal you'll see me.

United we would rise with the sun and glow like the moon.
Washed over and over like hungry tides that lick the surf.
Drinking each other to th...

Foster Gun
At my birth I was forged through fire at the time 
I didn’t know my life’s purpose would be to just fire
at the finish my skin was black like onyx and for safety 
They put a safety on me


Instead of going to a nursery I was shipped from the gun manufacturer 
to a gun store little did I know what was in store for my life little did I know 
I had the power to end a life

Like a wall clock I stayed hanging up for display not realizing that usually when I was displayed 
that meant your t...

Dialogue
Changing minds 
Searching binds
Finding dialogue all around

All depends on "logic"
As in food, you need garlic
Avoiding conflict
Living without constrict
Finding trick

The dialogue is a soul
A solution, and a rule
Dialogue is the best tool

Changing minds 
Means changing lives
To thrive
To be able to drive
Gatherings in life or in prive

Dialogue becomes a drug
Like a country flag
A soul, not a simple rag

Everything depends on logic
Facilitate language traffic 
Dialo...

Winter for a year.
Can we have winter for a year
would that be long enough
that would be long enough
winter for a year
time to think
a year to think
a year to think of winter
when we have 
winter for a year
can we have it like that then
and maybe why not
winter for a year
can we have it just that then or near
the winter for a full year
the winter for a year.

Need help
Would you write me a poem? We are having our 4th child and I want to read it to our family. I don't want it to be obvious until the end! We are a pretty meaningful bunch so something that would tug at our hearts would be perfect!  something about how life is beginning again, maybe about our family tree? 
Thank you so much.

Ready to Hit the Road Again
You often stand alone 
in the wind
like a quiet dandelion
swaying gracefully 
at a small lane
forgotten by the world
And I
I'm constantly tumbling 
on many a strange road
like a tumbleweed 
moving on and on
and I've forgotten the world
In the season of Zephyr
we're ready 
to hit the road again
but where's our future shelter
Maybe we'll settle down 
in the same pasture
Maybe not
So let us pray
fate will bring us together
in the long run

FEAR IS A LIAR
The biggest liar in the world is fear.
Insistent, 
it will lead our feet astray
Eviscerating what we held most dear
Till groping in the dark we lose our way.

Then where we once knew love abides but hate,
Civility gives way to the uncouth,
For fear will drive us to a hopeless state
So many, many miles from the truth.

Fear controls you day in and day out.
Fear makes you need to be led Like sheep
Fear makes you believe in things that's not really there,
Fear plays with your mind....

ANCHOR IN LIFE
our anchor in life
our salvation and hope in abundance
our true educator in life
our gift from God
used to the utmost and showcasing light
and seeing its fruitfulness which endures at our final hours
He exists within us all
He is our anchor in life
The one that brings forth miracles in faith
The one that blesses us from each word we speak
He is the beginning and the end
The one whom I can truly say is our friend
He paves the way for all us sinners
He promises new life when we have g...

SPIRITLESS
In a state of trepidation and hesitation 

Standing on a tree branch with total tiredness

The thought, unclear

The view, unrealistic still

The feelings, kinda confusion and depression

No progress, no sweetness

No purpose, life meaningless 

But if these wings are spread widely

High in the sky with the greatest altitude

Won't one see the way to be out of the damn quiescence

He carefully thought
