All Hallows

dark was the night, darker than nights past

a mist, a fog, crept slowly

and wrapped the town around its arms

 

cold was the wind that blew

colder than any wind that passed

everything was still

the silence was ghostly

 

the moon, full and yellow

an eerie feeling blanketed everything it saw

and there I stood at the cemetery

watching everything unfold

The Struggle

I choke in silence for no one hears my plea

Death welcomes me longingly  with open arms

Still the touch of dawn awakens me

 

I surrender the fight for I can no longer bear the weight

Yet something or someone always…..always

puts my feet back on the ground

 

I breathe again, start all over again

But this time hoping to be stronger and better equipped

for the next battle is fast approaching

A Sinner’s Plea

Is God still showing me love
As He looks down from above?
He silently  sheds a tear
as He longs to be near.
To be His child is my true  calling,
So why am I continually falling?
The Sinner’s eternally  cry,
For their broken wings just cannot fly.
Now I long to  change…that’s what I say,
But why is it that I won’t pray?
What is it  going to take
To finally make me break?
Where is that longing  fire
That showed my true hearts desire?
What will be the final cost
If  I forever am lost?
I still am crying out to be free,
But is this my hearts  true plea?
I have it all right in front of me,
Still my covered eyes  cannot see.

Drown

Doesn’t notice, doesn’t mind

So why do I even bother?

Some people see the chemistry

The one that you never do.

Runaway or try to hide

There’s nothing else I can do

Been here before

Oh so many times!

I think I’ll get myself out

Before I drown again

Skin And Bones

Tall, dark and nothing but bones

A skeleton walking

Beats a dead man who tells tales

 

Beautiful! They say

But all I see is a hungry zombie

Famine seems to have struck it

Drought has absorbed all the water it had within

 

Worse, most people want to be like them

Most people want me to be like them

Others have been played and their mind wasted

They fall into the pit of doom

where nothing but skin and bones reign

 

Skin and bones,

Skin and bones,

Do you really want to be like one?

The answer should be easy

My Study Habit

Exam was coming and I had to study

Could not wait for a study buddy

Had to work hard to get good grades

Had to do this on my own, without anyone’s aid

 

So I took my book and flipped it open

But Math was too hard that I sat there frozen

I took the next book that I could find

Science was of no help to my confused mind

I tried History, but alas to my fears!

I was “this” close to tears

 

I gave up in trying to study

I think I’ll just wing it,

that would be a lot easier.

Real

what good is a smile if it is fake?

better a frown if the emotion is real.

 

what good is the beauty if it s a façade

of an uglier attitude? 

better called ugly face yet a heart of gold.

 

what good is a crowd and nothing but enemies?

better to have one friend who is true

 

I’d take one apple than a hundred made of plastic

at any given day

what’s real is better than the fakeness shown by many
