untitled 1

I may not have alot of money
But I am rich with goodwill.
Immense amounts of tragedy
Brought joyous smiles through paining hearts
A love lost and gained and lost
Feelings rising and fading
I learned to grow
Out of infinite possibilities of life.
Blinded eyes of oblivion, not livin
Just disguised
Rise through the demise
And fate will be found.
Follow the voice within
For destiny does not slow or tire
Solid happiness can only be discovered
Inside yourself.
Turn me inside out
And show me to a mirror
So my eyes can consume
The beauty within.

Experience. Freedom. Love. Now.

The way the light hits, I can only see one side of your face

The sun and the moon
Numb this life just
To get through
A mask
In order to
Appease you.
How do you do?
Sit in the dark
Shed some light
Fight, fight, fight
For your life

Experience. Freedom. Love. Now.

StoNeY dAnCe

hazelnut flavored coffee
steaming, frothing
hands swollen and bruised.
the skin on my arms is taunt
yet, these people keep coming back for more.
and, I have no armor
or anyone to advocate for me.
IV drips drops dripping...
the stoney dance.

stoney dance in the clouds while
trying to make important decisions
and fend off the evil ones,
like dr. leon.
It keeps getting harder
to see through these glassy eyes,
so I cry...

and do my little stoney dance...

Experience. Freedom. Love. Now.


Give me a little honey, honey
Sweet sugar happiness
I miss myself all the time
Who am I now that the Crohny has taken me
Do you know?
Even more so,
Do you know how to get me back?

I need to move on
Preferably with all the insides
I have left.
Dear Lord, I ask for your help...

I am being held hostage.

Experience. Freedom. Love. Now.
