Setting Out Into The Big Wide Open

rock-731140_1920.jpg

Setting out into the big wide open
Dreaming of a greater world to hold
Emerge from your sleepiness
Expand your eyes to something so bold
I hear whispers you wish to be wild
Silly verbiage until you fully embrace
Cast off from this mundane existence
Evidence of love expressed within your face

Curious Intents In This Warmer Weather

Curious intents in this warmer weather
Knowing Summer will be coming soon
Inspiration & creativity go hand in hand
Shedding Winter demons beneath a fresh moon
I’m tired of conditioning myself for them
My mind feels free & ready to finally shine
Pushing away any thought to merely conform
We get one life & this one is going to be mine
I’m going to stretch my imagination far out
Tinkering with ideas & love for us all to spread
Spring is the return of life to this sleeping world
In the future, how to be remembered when we’re dead

Those Words Come To Me In Those Coffee Dreams

Those words come to me in those coffee dreams
A spontaneous marvel of literary delight
There’s a difference between manufactured beauty
& a real beauty, founded by nature’s authentic right
But I can’t explain the nuances with the definition
I’m not one to judge such subjective whims
Focusing on my own qualms & dangling thoughts
Let us sit, pour another cup, let’s solve these problems
I’m not bothered by such trifling issues as rules
Let them worry about my intents & being misconstrued
I let my chosen pages explain all I’m willing to
I’m more concerned if that pot has finished its brew

Oh, I’m Sorry

Oh, I’m sorry
Did you expect me to behave
Who do you think I am
Controlled along your radio waves
But I’m not that easily handled
I’m a pretty stubborn kind of guy
& subject to many whims of fancy
Living this life on the fly
I refuse outright to be your stooge
Or carry out all that you have planned
Understand, I’m devoid of rational thought
I’m immature; I’m the Pan

Dreams Are Perfumed Illusions

Dreams are perfumed illusions
Of what we don’t ordinarily see
Visions of alternate existences
Some of what should never be
But go ahead & embrace fantasy
Never lose your grip on what’s real
Convincing yourself to slowly stray
It’s not a truth, just because you can feel

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

Interwoven Into These Strange Worlds

Interwoven into these strange worlds
Knowing that sarcasm is a mere veneer
We’re stuck in a crumbling society
Hiding insecurities & manufactured fear
BUT – we can get out & resurrect our lives
This isn’t the end of our story being told
There’s a stack of blank paper still waiting
How will you manipulate the ink; will you be so bold

Calling Out In The Dark

Calling out in the dark, Angels, cast out the ugly
I’m weary of this life, I can’t deal with it anymore
Where is the magic to fuel us through this existence
We surely are in need of salvation, I fervently implore
I fall to my knees, with my face up to the Lord
“Wrap me tightly in your perfectly loving Grace”
There is no place better suited for a tainted soul
I know He’s here, my anxiety disappears without a trace
