Fine Too

I saw him

Way over there

Making his way

Walking towards me

I was half expecting he would look up

Maybe wave at me,

Or even just smile at me
But he didn’t 

He just kept walking

And then

He stopped and gave me a hug

And that was fine too

Oh hello world!

Hello world, how are you?

I’ve been keeping you from a distance

Been looking from the outside

Many beautiful things you offer

But some of my kind doesn’t bother.
They fight, they bicker

Back stab one another

It is no wonder

Why you cry floods of water

You try to cleanse yourself of us

Seeing we’re the impurities.
Hello world. Is it too late for me to say how lovely you are?

How precious you are

How grateful should all of us be.

Hello world…..

The Waiting

A test of patience

And letting it happen

A test of trust

Not letting anything dampen

Whether it might be

Solely for love or life in general

Or simply waiting in line

Never lose hope and go down the spiral

For things that require time,

That let’s you wait

Is always worth it

And is always great

All My Great Excuses

I started on my homework
but my pen ran out of ink.
My hamster ate my homework.
My computer’s on the blink.
 
I accidentally dropped it
in the soup my mom was cooking.
My brother flushed it down the toilet
when I wasn’t looking.
 
My mother ran my homework
through the washer and the dryer.
An airplane crashed into our house.
My homework caught on fire.
 
Tornadoes blew my notes away.
Volcanoes struck our town.
My notes were taken hostage
by an evil killer clown.
 
Some aliens abducted me.
I had a shark attack.
A pirate swiped my homework
and refused to give it back.
 
I worked on these excuses
so darned long my teacher said,
“I think you’ll find it’s easier
to do the work instead.”

The Great Unknown

in death i become whole

where in life i was in pieces

broken and unrepairable

contorted with dismay

holding out a hand for shelter

lost in the unforgiving sea 

never to be recovered

but i become whole

 

in silence i am heard

i shut my mouth, i’m mum

the more i am heard

past the hurting, past the shadows

i become something more 

i shut my eyes

i see the light

and yet i am still heard…and seen

 

in life i’m broken

where in death i’m whole

i don’t understand why

it’s just the way it is
