I Cannot Even Speak Of This Frustration

I cannot even speak of this frustration
Rotting my spirit with haste from inside
Patience melting with all rational thought
Anger takes over & there’s no place to hide
But where did the peace loving man go?
At what price did control finally slip away
Repercussions & consequences are now here
Humbled, embarrassed, but we live to find a new day

Manifestos Of The Uprising

Manifestos of the uprising
Those who can no longer stay away
Knowing the tough road ahead
Highway stories of former days
Hateful & silent is no way to live
Bottled up with all that evil inside
Need to release the toxins & corruption
Or get washed away in the rising tide

I Need To Get Out Of My Head

I need to get out of my head
I’m thinking too much; unscripted
An overabundance of thought
Anxious emotions needing decrypted
But its scarier out in the world
I’d much rather be lost inside
Heinous monsters & hateful humans
Let me drown in my own cerebral tide

Life Is Funny That Way

Life is funny that way
Exposed from the inside out
Natural rules in the darkness
Sullen secrets they’re willing to tout
But claw your way past the nonsense
Clear their voices out of your eyes
There’s a truth within your heart
Cling to it, before it withers & dies

You Don’t Think You’re Beautiful

You don’t think you’re beautiful
Because of the pain you feel inside
Existence finds itself with a teetering lull
The path to happiness merely not identified
But you need to write your own dreams
Never settle for what others might demand
Seek out adventure & self-discovery
Find the surprising beauty of the unplanned

I’m Not Perfect

I’m not perfect
Your knees won’t tremble from this aging face
I don’t possess Herculean strength
But somewhere inside I can summon a poet’s grace
I’m not Michelangelo’s David
Don’t have the portfolio of Scrooge McDuck
I’m a normal guy with abnormal passions
But of your opinions…. I don’t really care
