Sailing Out On The Good Ship

IMG_1280.jpg

Sailing out on the good ship
Prevailing winds ensuring a clear path
Foregoing the unexplained existence
Forging headlong into nature’s wrath
Arctic waters surrounding our view
Diligent sailors crewing this steel boat
Perpetually longing for a illusive home
But buoyed by a dedication keeping us afloat

A Clear Path To Happiness

A clear path to happiness
But where do we go from here
Tired & weary from toilsome tasks
Self loathing; the harbinger of fear
But there’s always the simple life
Cherishing each blessing bestowed
Smiling each morning with gratitude
Embracing & not dreading your load
Taking it up again with the sun
Another day to provide what you reap
Responsibility can be a small miracle
Reflecting the love that you keep

I Try So Hard To Be Positive

I try so hard to be positive
I try to elude this building hate
The stress & pressures mount
Escaping this forthcoming fate
How do we overcome their frustrations
Without ever accepting any less
The world grinds away at your soul
Which path to find internal success
There must be a concise answer
The route providing unbridled glee
Each day another chance to smile
& take each happiness as a victory

The Pressures Of A Creative World

The pressures of a creative world
The mind’s eye reflecting society
Sculpting words to fit this day
My life better when wrapped in piety
But you must choose your own path
No one can tell you what you need to do
Your experiences are solely your own
In the end, your happiness is simply up to you

His Disturbed View Of The American Dream

notebook-886532.jpg

His disturbed view of the American dream
Maybe he went & got tattooed one too many times
The coffee & cigarettes unfold to clear his path
Envisioned between the wondrous filth & grime
Dredged details with twists & turns of another
Hazed morning blurs direction to the local Starbucks
Elegant patrons stepping out from higher society
Rubbing shoulders with commons down on their luck
Stilettos clacking upon the tile with another escape
Former dive bar angels way past their prime
Stalking & eavesdropping into a life he’ll never know
Maybe he went to that well one too many times

Acid Rain & My Coffee’s Gettin’ Wetter

cup-1276775.jpg

Acid rain & my coffee’s gettin’ wetter
Lost in the passageway of my hotel room
Feelin’ a bit down in the passin’ days
How do I tell my girl I’ve been consumed
What’s learned through life isn’t always truth
I’m still searching for anything that’s real
Whose path have you decided to follow
In the end, life depends on what you can feel

Sunshine Breaking Out Over The Sky

new-brighton-1239724.jpg

Sunshine breaking out over the sky
Cautious in preparation to be red
Warmth colouring your crystal eyes
Wrapped in those sacred words we said
Comfortable with the path to return
Incoherent love to forever please
Ensuring we will never again burn
Dreams built upon another with ease

Mechanical Clicking In The Darkness

woman-1081873.jpg

Mechanical clicking in the darkness
Comprehensive yearnings to be free
Which journey to the successful path
To escape their judgmental memory
Boldness provides an excellent voice
Isolation bringing forth creative spawn
Years since you were labelled
Cumulative residue not how you were drawn
