Ashes

From the ashes
Beginnings may
Originate
And form
But in this case
Ashes symbolize
An eternal
Death
Bringing forth panic
To the people
Who follow Him
The Lord
A phoenix does not
Rise
On this day
But alas
This changes the human
Mind and spirit
As we strengthen our fortress
And protect ourselves
With bloody hands
To be free

Apocalypse

Lucifer, take forth
My soul
For I wish not
To live within the times
Of the Apocalypse
I weep at the thought
Of torture and
Seeing my family
Ripped apart
From the inside out
I would rather be
Beat and broken
For centuries on end
Than live within this
Nightmare
So God, forgive me but
Your absence gives me
No alternative
I will still look up
To You
But it will have to be
From below the ground

Unphased

Mother nature
You rear your head
Firing forth your very
Worst
I fear not
For God matches up
Very well with your
Wrath
Your destruction
Will not damper
Or control my
Choices
So do what you will
But I will stand up
And will not be
Phased

Canyons

In this canyon
I find myself lost
Vast areas
I have no bearing
I wander aimlessly
Hoping for guidance
But no aid is near
As I wander on
I soon realize
My situation
Is not wandering
In this canyon
My mind betrays me
As I scratch these walls
Watch the paint peel
And I drift away

Blessing

You cherish me
But do not see
That it is he
Who despises thee
Despite poise
He employs
His dastardly boys
To defeat me
But all I bring
Is a ring
And as I plead
He reluctantly accepts
So through resistance
I wouldn't miss this
As you my witness
Help turn a new page
Of a brand new life

Feet

Let your feet guide you
When your heart grows weary
For fatigue is a mindset
And is therefore beatable
It isn't about strength
Or quickness of foot
It is about heart
And the will to continue on
The victory may not be
Riches and fame
But the reward is
The internal satisfaction
You know that you did
All that you could
Without pause
Without regret
And it may hurt now
But wait and see
That this personal pain
Will become your glory

Acknowledged

Hearts ring true
With our deepest desires
Our most passionate wants
And our most desperate needs
It just so happens
That your heart
And the need to be inside it
Is all of these things for me
I want to be adored by you
My very existence praised by you
But alas, this seems an impossibility
A task never to be realized
For I question your notice
Of my existence at all
As I fawn over you
Shyly from afar

Undivided

What is it
That inclines us so
To venture away
From those who care for us?
They shelter us
And clothe us
Even give their love
And undivided attention to us
Yet we rebel
Standing against them
Isolating ourselves
Without cause or reason
But today
An epiphany occurs for me
Lighting my darkness
Showing me the truth
I am forever so grateful
For the charity
The hospitality
You have so humbly shown
Despite our kinship
You were not required, never faltering
So for that, I say
Thank you for now and forever

Peace

Internal peace
A priceless treasure
One cherished by the few
Fortunate enough to possess it
But I have it not
My body is at unease
A constant state of torment
And heightened terror
But today I take control
Of all that is mine
Heart, mind, and soul
Forever will I be at peace
And I will project this
To allow others to possess
And treasure it with me

Military

These uniforms
Mean nothing
Except when death
Or war is present
They are much more
Than the negativity
They are associated with
And recognized for
They represent
The initial liberty
Fortified
On this ground
But so many
Unless personally touched
Forget or ignore
The true meaning
Yes, violence occurs
But for the freedoms
And liberties you treasure
We exist

Refused

Let me be
She said
Leave me now
She said
But I refused
Forget about me
She said
Stop loving me
She said
But I refused
Don't do this
She said
Live your life
She said
But what's a life
Worth living
Without her
So I refused

Demise

Seize the day
Is what you say
But on this day
I must give away
My chance anew
For me and for you
With the next thing to do
To sail off into the blue
Ocean of lies
That was my demise
The world of lies
That clouded your eyes
So death comes now
As I allow
He takes me now
And we travel down
So goodbye to you
Whatever you do
Be honest to you
For these moments are too few

Runaway

Find me
For I am lost
Common sense and wherewithal
I have tossed
The world is cruel
That much is certain
Please blind me from it
Pull down my curtain
I am immature
To think I would have made it
But the idea of that
Is completely outdated
Let me do right
And make amends
Because on this forgiveness
My life depends

Running

Running, running
Always running
Running from me
Running from you
I never stop
Can't stop
Running and running
Always running
From my past
From my present
From my future
From my life
I never want to own up
Never want to live it
I will run until I can't
And then I will keep running
Running, running
Always running

Butterfly

Why must you squash us?
A harmless breed
Simply poking along
Bot bothering anyone
I have a future you know?
I will become beautiful
To make this world better
But you'll never see that
All I have to do
Is spend a cocoon
Simply wait a while
And I spring into a butterfly

Reality

I see the girl
Of my dreams
Only
In my dreams
She smiles at me
And gently runs
Her fingers
Through my hair
I don't know
Why it is
She chose me
I am grateful though
Why though
Is she
Only present
In my dreams
When I want her here
Right now
To be with me
In reality

Past

Terrible moments past
Cloud the present situation
Leaving unhappiness looming
Impossible to vacation
I try to breathe deep
Let my emotions free
But this anger brews deep
Attempts to consume me
Takes me down
Covers me whole
Takes my life
Consumes my soul

Navigator

Do you love me
Because I don't feel
Or recognize it
If you do
I love you much
And I try to show you
Let you recognize
That I do
You are my whole world
My navigator
Don't let me get lost
Without you

Friends

Memories made
And lost simultaneously
But the bonds forged
Can not be forgotten
These moments
Treasured internally
Told about to many
Acknowledged by all
This is what I live for
This is why I breathe

Wind

The wind howls by
As the cold draws close
I brace myself for it
With lack of preparation
It is not my enemy
Nor is it my foe
But I know my place
As collateral damage
In its path of destruction
And among its changes
Lead me to freedom
From your path
So that I may live in peace
In warmth and happiness

Doors

Let my breath
Help you realize
What it is
I live for
Just in case
It was unclear
My path
Leads to your door
I live for you
So please help me
By letting me in
To hand you my heart

Told

Tell me I'm wrong
Tell me I'm stubborn
Tell me I'm imperfect
Tell me I'm all right
Tell me I'm a dork
Tell me I'm ignorant
Tell me I'm late
Tell me I'm incapable
Tell me anything you want
Anytime of day
Just don't tell me
That I don't love you

Young

I am young
Mistakes are often
Successes are few
But passion is constant
In what I say
In what I do 
In my motions
And in my relationships
I love often
Forgive easy
And live
Within the moment

Caged

Hold me closer
Let me free
From myself
And my emotions
I am caged
Like an animal
Unable to escape
Incapable of freedom
But you will set me free
And for that
You must know
I believe you to be
My savior

Knowing

Here comes death
Here comes death
Here comes death just for me
To take me forward
To take me forward
To take me forward into heaven
No one knows
No one knows
No one knows what death will bring
But I know
But I know
That this is what's right for me

Fever

You give me a fever
Unknown to me
As it sweeps and overtakes
My heart and soul
I burn with passion
But feel no mutuality
As your eyes appear dead
And light is absent
I plan to change that though
I plan to give new light
New passion and love
To your life
Just give me a chance
To get close
And show you
What love truly is

Heartbeat

Beating
Always beating
This heart of mine
It's always beating
Beating for one
And only the one
The one who is mine
She is my world
My everything
My spark
My grace
My happiness
My heart recognizes
With more than a beat
As if it was clapping
A standing ovation
For the happiness it feels
Never felt before
But now we are settled
Mind, heart, and soul
Unanimously choose
This woman
Gowned in front of me
Until death

Imposter

Fire fills my lungs
Consumes me
Overcomes me
As my rage heightens
This evil I feel
Creeping through me
Becomes my life
My new persona
I hate this way
But I cannot escape
As I disappear
Replaced by an imposter

Wrathful

Lay this down
The hammer I bring
Before wrath
Is brought to your feet
It will rain on you
All of your sins
As I close your eyes
For all eternity

Ugly

The mirror shatters
As I gaze upon it
The ugly duckling
Is my role
So I will transform
And mold myself
Into a good
Neigh, a great man
Manners, kindness
Mercy and empathy
Leading qualities
Of great men
Though sadly I realize
Despite these things
No on will ever love
The ugly duckling

Captivating

Eyes
Captivating
Tell a story unseen
Unspoken
With tones unheard
I captivate you
And hope for you
To bring me close
These eyes
Your eyes
Captivate me
Forever and after
