We go back and forth with feelings

Trying to find a common ground


What we settle on is almost always at my expense

It’s draining but you made me believe it’s just my way of life

Nothing about this is healthy

You sabotage every inkling of happiness I attempt to gather


Yes you have been hurt by many people time and time again


Hurt people, hurt people

Give it a chance won’t you?

Everyone is not the same and everyone isn’t out to ruin you


It’s all you want, I know

You need something to hold on to


That lets you know the happiness you feel isn’t just too good to be true

It’s real, it’s very real

So I say this to you, “let me go because I refuse to be your victim any longer”

“Yes you, you will no longer drag me down” I say to myself

I remember when it insisted on taking you from me

Eating away at you like it was hungry

Dimming your light that once shined so brightly

Distorting the lives of friends and family

You’re the definition of never giving up

You showed me that the lowest can always rise on top

I don’t think I’ve ever seen you without a smile on your face

It’s like you saw ahead of time you already won the race

My amazing fighter I saw what you did

You made it known that your life had more to give

Fueled by positivity and joy in your veins

The greatest gains in life are often conceived in pain

Your life rolled out on a carpet of words

Or simply writing for the voiceless that wish to be heard

Lifeless pen and lifeless paper

Given life by their emotional creator

Appreciation for rhymes and free verses too

What does poetry mean to you?

To me it’s passion in whatever comes out your pen

To me it’s the times when writing is your only friend

It’s anything and everything you want it to be

But mostly it’s a gateway that sets my mind free

And even if that freedom don’t last for too long

I know that having the courage to speak makes me strong

The Dancer

Her eyes held the key to all her stories,

With proud steps she inspired many.

She spoke without even saying a word,

And though without voice her language was heard.

A smile as bright as staring into the sun,

To blind out all the negative ones.

Only the genuine would see through,

As they understand her parables in every move.

It’s over now and she’s headed backstage,

On her way home she wipes the smile off her face.

Bruises on her feet the audience cannot see,

A soak in the bath is just what she needs.

Thinking about what story she will tell next,

Never giving anything less than her best.

With hard work comes pain but it also brings laughter,

And this was the life of the graceful dancer.

The Sentient Tree Speaks

It feels so strange how times have changed,

I look on from afar at every passing car.

Everyone’s so busy, seems they don’t have a clue

Of why I’m so heartbroken and saddened by my view.

They took away my family, the ones that cleanses the air

Tree by tree we fall and no one seems to fear.

The dangers, oh how much it hurts

Do we have another planet to move to?

Why are we killing mother earth?

She sheds her tears with the falling rain.

No one seems to wonder, no one feels the pain…that she feels.

How much more of this do I have to see?

Am I the only one, is it just me?

Very few pay attention and very few understand,

The consequences of reckless living and the destruction of our land.

One person at a time is all it really takes,

To make a move towards a better future by decreasing our mistakes.

The Pain We’re So Good At Hiding

Emotional wounds take the longest to heal,

A mental war with both sword and shield.

Such battle can take years to subside,

Some of us give up and pay with our lives.

It’s always sad to see people’s lives just fade away,

The ones that never felt it always have the most to say.

So get off of your high horses and educate yourself,

Know that the mind can be a prison if not to you then to someone else.
