WE MUST KNEEL

Saturday, December 9, 2017


you know that moment 
when you're not sure if you'll make it out alive 
if you'll be able to recover from the emotional trauma 
the physical depression 
the heartbreaking truth 
you must face the facts and fall to your knees then 
if not im afraid survival is slim 
bc kid 
we can't do it all on our own

[you're not alone]

FRIEND OR FOE

Friday, December 1, 2017


it bugs me that people sneak into my life
tearing into my normal and calm
they expect me to welcome the new
and after a while, it becomes okay
but then they leave - taking the new normal along
and suddenly i'm back to how i liked it in the beginning
but now
i'm not sure i still like it

WAKE UP AND DO SOMETHING

Tuesday, November 21, 2017


there are too many goodbyes
and not enough i'm sorry's
heartstrings pull and yank until they snap
and it's just like why
why does it have to be like this
why can't we just laugh a little more
love for eternity instead of crying
there has to be a solution. it isn't impossible.

then why isn't anything done?


UNDENIABLE TRUTH

Monday, November 13, 2017


we yearn to better ourselves
to get over the constant mistake of yesterdays
yet we can't
bc there is a large beast blocking the path
it isn't necessarily an unknown blockade
in fact we've walked this way many times before
hoping that the beast would leave for a day
just once. just to give a little more time. just let us slip free.
but instead it appears the moment you arrive
i've said this before and i'll say it again
i believe the beast is you + me
and we cannot set ourselves free. now what

[ sorry. i woke up and wrote this. that's why it's such a mess ]
