Thursday Morning

Thursday morning and you’re on my mind like a thought that just persists.
I can’t resist the urge to try and speak to you, although I know you won’t respond.
But all around without much notice, are signs and symbols with alarm clocks and riddles.
It’s only until I really open up my eyes and really breathe life in,
That I begin to see that all along you have been in front of me.
In every step that I take.
In every decision I make.
Every line and crack of every smile and frown upon my face.
Every thought and dream that has lost its place.
There you are.
If only I could remember that at every second of every day,
Then maybe life would not be as difficult and maybe everything would fall faster into their respected space.
But then again, maybe this is all a dream, and
Maybe in the grand scheme of things and all the in-betweens,
There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
And I can funnel all the bad and the diluted,
Concentrated into a mason jar of disbelief, and
Stored away,
My soul to keep.

Delusional American Voters

Who will be the next puppet?
Everyone wants to know..
How will they help us all
make the economy grow?

Will they raise or lower taxes?
Will they audit the Fed?
Will they let the corporations
keep putting GMO’s in our bread?

How will they make us safe?
What can they give us for free?
The delusions are running wild..
Why don’t these people see?

They must rufuse to pay high taxes!
They must let the government know
that they won’t tolerate tyranny
and, the corrupt politicians must go!

They must demand the Fed to be audited!
They must not back down!
They must stop buying the poisoned bread
when they go to the store in town!

Nothing in this world is free.
They will all have to get their own!
They will have to work hard
and forget about government loans!

No puppet can ever make them safer
than they can theirselves..
If need be, they can get guns
and keep extra bullets on the shelves!

As We Got Older

As we got older we got new and bigger responsibilities,
We got told what to do, directions to follow
You taught me to go against the flow, but now I know the truth
Yes the flow isn’t always right but it’s stable and safer

As we got older I grew wiser realizing who to trust
You were not on my trustworthy list as I got wiser
To many stabs in the back makes you become wiser with your trust
I’m gonna leave before you sharpen your knife

As we got older I realized there is healing from the pain you caused
The recovery started when you were gone
I no longer feel the pain that you caused
Because it will not happen again

As we got older I realized not only am I special
I am chosen, but not by you
I was taught I was not only chosen but loved
A special loved person

Seven Reasons Why

As our fates intertwine
Here are seven reasons why
You’ve turned from my star
Into my entire sky

Worlds Collided
Sparks flew
I was hopelessly drawn
From the moment I met you

Like a moth to a flame
I couldn’t resist
The consuming passion
The cherished promise

Of your strong embrace
When I’m scared and weak
Your infectious smile
When I’m feeling bleak

The warmth of your touch
As you dry my tears
Your velvety voice
Music to my ears

The frenzy of butterflies
That in my stomach alight
As I gaze into your smouldering eyes

The security in the faith that
Even with the incessant passing of time
When the fiery storm of our passion subsides
Our embers of love will never die

One Word

The one word that describes me?
That is tough….
If you think about average that is impossible.
Why do I say that?
Because every person owns themselves…
They are them.
Your experiences, your loves, your happiness that is all you.
The good and the bad that makes up everyone….
Makes you.
So what word describes me?
I guess that would be a equal individual…
A human being, but and original being…
Someone that only me knows completely, but at the same time…
Does not.
Popularity, wealth, status, that means nothing in the end.
What really matters is are you….
You.

We The People

What’s wrong with this world that we’re living in?
The reality is that NO ONE is being punished for their sins.

WE the people are not being heard,
instead WE the people are being ignored.

We the people cannot afford,
afford the things we’ve once adored and we the people will NOT be ignored.

We the people will be heard,
and as WE the people, WE deserve more.

We the people deserve to protest against the wrongful doings of our judicial system,
Our judicial system is supposed to be honest and fair but clearly the government doesn’t care.

Our freedom of speech should be a given must,
So now I say why when WE the people try to voice our opinions by protest are we thrown in jail?
It’s a contradiction that shows us just how much the government has failed.

Why can’t we all be treated the same?
Do I really need to tell you who I FEEL should take the blame?
I won’t repeat any names.

United as one we can change the world as well as our lives,
We just have to stop feeding into the elaborate lies and decide,
So I say let’s take over this nation with our new, profound pride.
