Skate

The wind flows around me
As I push the limits
Of the possible
Flying with just a board
These wheels contact earth
With me atop
As I cut through this air
Like a knife through butter
My mind races
With combinations
To please spectating eyes
And as they rise
I realize my fortune
As I am adored
For doing the thing
I love the most

Motivate

I wake up slowly
No motivation
Very little drive
And no wish of production
Self use and degradation
Not a worry to me
As I lay in pity
In spite of it all
But you are there
And you drive me to rise
Call me to believe
In myself and you
As I lift up my body
Full of hidden purpose
I will find this purpose
And place my confidence
On the greatest motivator
Within you

Clouds

Clouds cloak the sky
Blotting out the sun
A world of darkness
Follows close behind
Encouraging evil to walk
And trot happily among us
But they will not get me
I am impenetrable
I can not be corrupted
So I will stand solemn
Strong against this storm
And climb above these clouds

Doubters

Petty worries manipulate
And tease the mind
I only breathe at this point
To defeat my doubters
My life has no major purpose
Or underlined meaning
But I wish for significance
And achieve little
This world is cruel
Judgmental and crude
But I will change this world
With these words
To light up this darkness
And stymie these demons

Genocide

In this euphoric world
Blinders select our vision
And we do not see
What we wish not to
But we are aware of it
We blind ourselves from it
To make this world
As perfect as it may seem
But for what benefit
Will it be so
When the imperfection
Is within us all?
No euphoric state
Will ever be achievable
When the unsteady hand
Of Adam's descendants
Is present and lively
So we fight amongst ourselves
Until we find utopia
Through our eyes
With no one else to stand against
This is genocide

Almighty

Lost without you
I attempt to call you
Plead with you
But there is no answer
I try to feel you there
But you are absent
Without a trace
And without a sign
But I will not give up
You are my one and only
And I need you now
So my faith will stand true
Never falter
And I will believe
You shall answer my prayer
My plead will be heard
Because my faith in you
Is stronger than ever Lord
And we together
Will be almighty

Intoxicating

Blurs fill my vision
Confusing, swirling world
I love the feeling
My body has taken
Inexplicable motions
And loud conversations
Fill the night sky
With people I adore
I cherish this moment
Intoxicating evening
As the smile never leaves
And the people never fade

Perish

I see through you
Wicked and unkind
You wear this mask of deceit
And tell us lies
But it is apparent
You do not care for us
You are in a race
A competition against rivals
While we pay the price
I anger for us
And only wish for peace
But you who run us
And this free country
Have a better agenda
And I am saddened by this
As you willingly
And timidly watch
As we perish

Aroma

This alluring aroma
Penetrates my nostrils
A moment of bliss
Aphrodite's presence
Such striking beauty
Pleasure to my eyes
Cloud nine area
A sight beyond reason
Feeling your presence
Ever felt and lasting
I will enjoy our time
And hope for it to last
You are my one and only
The one I need
And I will travel for you
To the end of the earth

Moments

Silently
I shake
I tremble
I anticipate
The coming events
They linger
They loom
They threaten
Disaster
To kill
To destroy
To conquer
The earth
This home
My home
Our home
Will not be taken
I will stand
I will fight
I will live
For the moments
We make
We love
We share
We are free

Bidding

Eyes wide open
For this moment
As all our lives
Flash in an instant
Prayers are shouted
Sobs are heard
As this disaster
Begins to close in
I am mesmerized
By its raging beauty
And the destruction
It brings with it
All I can do is stand
And allow it to swallow
Engulf me whole
As God's disasters
Created for this earth
Do their bidding
In keeping the balance

Shrink

Listen to this silence
Befallen upon us
Watching, anticipating
Breath drawn
I shake violently
As I prepare for this
Undefined moment
And hope for the best
Though I soon discover
It is not in the cards
Too good to be true
And I am lonely
In a sea of people
As all eyes sadden for me
And I only wish
To shrink

Wicked

These demons circle me
Prey of the wicked
I am vulnerable
To say the least
But I must resist
And not let them in
Forcing their way in
It is impossible to stop
I am the only owner
Of my body, mind, and soul
And no demon shall possess
Or triumph over me
They will feel my wrath
My vengeance and fire
And I will cast them down
Back into the fire
That is Hell, these abominations
Begone to never return
Or you shall befall this fate
Once and forever more

Return

You have betrayed me
Disguised friend
I let you into my life
And you took it from me
I look into your eyes
Choking for life
But you are cold
Emotionless and empty
I reach out and hope
This wretched thing you are
Would turn and help
But to no avail
So as I lay dying
I swear my return
And upon my return
Expect no sympathy
No remorse or pause
Your life will be mine
And revenge will be exacted

Free

Why would you believe
When there is no hope?
Life becomes meaningless
With no end in sight
I wish for an ebb
In the chaos of life
But none is offered
So I must make my own
I breathe deeply
Close my eyes for a time
Everything slows down
And life seems easier
Hope is restored to me
And I will break free

Strength

I find my life tragic
No end to my sadness
From death to failure
Things go wrong daily
I stand strong as I can
But it is overwhelming
And I do not know how
Or if I can weather this
So Lord give me strength
Be my support at my rear
And keep me sturdy
For I will serve you
Unconditionally, entirely
And I must thank you 
For you have given me strength
I have never known

Looming

Death follows me
Closely, looming nearby
Waiting to strike
His very next victim
But it is not me
That he wants
He wants my family
Friends, and even enemies
No one left in my life
When he is done
But it is his job
And the scythe is the tool
I mourn and weep
For the lost ones
But life is not fair
And death is no different

Support

Falling hard
Without support
I reach for help
And find a hand
But it was not typical
Not the normal man
He was deceiving
But he loved me
I embraced him
More than any
People ask me
Why I would worship
Such an awful creature
And I tell them
Because he was there
When no one else was
So I worship
This fallen angel

Idol

Pride for my country
Love for my family
Humor for my friends
Courage for my comrades
I will be nothing
Short of the best
I will be everything
Required to be great
A leader, a follower
I can be these things
A man, a soldier
I am these things
You can't take it away
Unlike a blot of ink
I can't be smeared out
I am everlasting
I am permanent
So live with me
Or live against me
Regardless your choice
I fight with and for you

Silence

Hear this silence
A deafening blow
Upon my ear drum
Pushing me down
In pain and agony
A lack of understanding
For the current events
What has caused this
As debris showers on me
I lie motionless
Writhing on the ground
A hand grabs my sleeve
And tugs me up
I see my comrade
His lips moving frantically
But to no avail
This explosion has won
It took my hearing away
And this lion inside me
That drove me to fight
Is now gone
And my will is no more
I wish for one thing
Take me home

Siren

My struggle to win you over
Continues at alarming rates
Intensity is magnified
Emotions are peaked
I fight for this true love
I could surely find elsewhere
But she is so captivating
Leaving me breathless
This siren has surely sung
And I am enraptured
I wish for freedom of her
But alas it is no use
I find myself with urges of death
For other men's attempts
To court and seduce her
She will be mine soon
And there will be no other
But among this bloodshed
And fight over this beauty
She vanishes to the road
Without a sign or sight
And I am left bruised and bloody
A broken soul healing
From my former self

World

As the world burns
Everything I know is lost
And the world seems
A pointless place
But it is not my job
To hang my head
In utter defeat
And quit the world I love
I will make due
With the world that is here
Not linger painfully
On the world that once was

Family

Homeward bound I head
But is it really my home?
A troubled mother
An absent father
And dysfunctional siblings
I question my heading
And wonder my advantages
In that broken home
But this is my family
And God has dealt me
The hand He saw fit
And yet again
They are my family
No matter what
I can do nothing else
But love them
This is my nature

Thursday, June 7, 2012

Tough

This world is not fair
I pray and I pray
But to no avail
As my family dies before me
Never have I strayed
Or stood against my Lord
But now I just want to quit
And give up faith
But I can not
I must keep my faith
Through hard times
And better times
But this will be my true test
As I am broken down
Just to get built up again
And I am still here

Denial

My heart pounds
Feel it in my chest
Hear it in my ears
This moment is the best
Of my recent memory
To be here with you
On my knee here
Only with what you choose
I am scared of it
Because you hesitate
And a specific choice
I hope to motivate
But you shake your head
And denial I see
So by myself I move
Forever it will be

Duty

This smell of gun powder
The rain of debris
And the noise surrounding
It scares me
But I cannot be afraid
My comrades need me
Need me to be strong
And so I will be
But this moment now
It calls for more
Sacrifice is necessary
As I jump forward
And the world goes dark
I am called a hero
Because I saved soldiers
No, I say
I did my job
And exactly what was asked
In the line of duty

Rage

Rage fills my eyes
Blind and infuriated
I lash out
As death surrounds me
But this rage
Is accompanied by sadness
And I can't control
This forceful anger
Please subdue me
And keep me from this damage
I do not wish to harm
Or maim anyone or thing
I wish to be normal
But nothing will help
No drug or man
So tie me up
Lock me away
And throw this key
For in that prison
I am doing only myself
This rage filled harm

Places

New smells, new sights
I don't have my bearings
Where have I landed
That I don't understand
I realize suddenly
This new place is a mystery
To me and my friends
And we are all nervous
But as with any place
Positives and negatives
Are always present
So it is our job
To make the positives 
Greater than ever

Cannibal

This taste is luscious
Salty and rich
I bite down rough
And tear evenly
How sweet it is
To taste this meat
Flesh of someone
So similar to me
People say it's wrong
But how can it be
When it is my nature?
I say I will continue
Until death does me in
For I am a cannibal

Worries

Breathe easy
For I am your savior
No more fear
For I am your keeper
No more struggles
For I am your shoulder
Enjoy a lasting life
For I am your youth
And I can be all these things
Just for you
Because you are for me
The mother of our children
The wife of my fantasy
And the best friend of dreams
