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

mountains-736886_1280.jpg

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

Interwoven Into These Strange Worlds

white-1714170_1920.jpg

 

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

I Can’t Be Bothered By All Their Thoughts

paint-2985569_1920.jpg

 

 

I can’t be bothered by all their thoughts
The world isn’t privy to what’s in my head
Unworthy judgements coming from their ignorance
When they should be soaking in silence instead
There is no desire to join them in ineptitude
Allowing them to blockade all my cerebral dreams
Dropping out of society’s ungraceful farce
Do as you wish, but I’ll never join the mainstream

Wallowing In The Good Mornings

Wallowing in the good mornings
Moving on from all your past days
Cutting loose the baggage
You’re different now, that was a phase
New person evolving within you
Tired of comparisons & their failings
Creating your own place in this world
Let society shift & begin their own trailings

Carefully Chosen Sentence Structures

Carefully chosen sentence structures

The love of words keeping you from the cold

Bundled in that threadbare cardigan

But you never allowed your spirit to be sold

The world wishes to destroy your soul

& watch gleefully as you wither & cry

But as long as you keep on writing

You’ll learn that you can never really die

In Today’s Cruel World

In today’s cruel world
Is it okay to be happy or even smile or grin
Will you tolerate me if I’m not depressed
Or must I hate myself from deep down within
Is it kosher if I happen to love my wife
Or dote upon my daughters along the way
But I won’t be judged for being content
God gave us sunshine to bask in the light of day

Passion Failing All Around Me

Passion failing all around me
We’re all exposed on the battleground
Hearts breaking wide open
Sketchy footing, leaving the night unsound
Cautiously looking out into the world
I’m safely behind doors & my windowpane
A vicious society who always destroys
Forcing love to wither & die in vain
Cherishing the woman I’ll forever desire
Who wears my great-grandmother’s ring
Upon us to ensure it doesn’t happen here
With her in my arms, I’ll always I’ll cling

I Need To Get Out Of My Head

people-3169979_1920.jpg

 

 

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

what kind of a world

class-1986501_1920

 

 

 

what kind of a world

are we teaching
our children
to live in

it’s the year of our Lord
twenty-eighteen
our homes speak to us
yet we’re pushing common core math
dumbing down of our youth
we’ve lost our way
forcing political agendas
instead of teaching

in a post-apocalyptic society
when we’ve lost power

are we going to be
worried about basic
algebra?!
