We make our memories
snapshots of time
little treasures
that fade
day by day

Good Cheer

We're called to celebrate
the occasions that mark our lives
with smiles and good cheer

Monday, November 28, 2016


The night will come
masking the tragedies of the day
and give us respite
if but briefly
from the tears

Becoming Earth

Some of those tears
dried and salty traces
across my face
are a mask for my stupor
in which I contemplate
time and aging bones
beyond the dawn
beneath the grave
waiting to become earth

Saturday, November 26, 2016


The time we pass is destiny
leaving behind mourners
we just fleeting memories
our time here just a murmur

Carry On

my face and body floated
aimlessly for eons
tattering and knocking
at themselves
friends passed through me
on their firey journey home
growing with anticipation
anguised to become
looking to my father
the sun
contorted explosions
threw me together
flames and fires
then rains and seas
those days behind me
seem like an eternity
yet, just a blink of an eye
here then gone
the universe carries on

Who we are

who we are is what we are
when the realization comes
you'll know it

Wednesday, November 23, 2016


our convictions echo over the years
shaping history
changing all those they touch

Sink or Swim

For better or worse, we're in this together
it's up to us to determine if we sink or swim

Little Things

It's the little day to day things
that give life its meaning

Just Perhaps

Self destruction is in our nature
it's our youth that give us hope
just perhaps we'll overcome it

Reaching our destinations

rewards await those that take risks
that doesn't mean we should be foolish
you can't enjoy a destination you never reach

Friday, November 18, 2016


If we're not careful
we will be consumed by our creations
lost within it
until our dying day

Between the Realms

Our moments pass
often without a trace
between the realms
of now and then

Wednesday, November 16, 2016


The key to life is finding balance
and staying centered
you'll know when you've achieved this

A Challenge

Life is a challenge to be faced
day by day
until you're gone

Monday, November 14, 2016


It takes risk
to change the world
and make
come true

To the victors go the spoils of war
and the history of how it was won

Saturday, November 12, 2016


we toil through the days
forgetting who we are
and why we're here

Make Believe

We live in a world of make believe
never seeing the world really
and that's our tragedy

Thursday, November 10, 2016

Foundation of Life

At the moment of our conception
the seeds of our death are planted
this is the foundation of our life

The days ahead

The days ahead
just unknown places
where you'll find yourself
looking back

Wednesday, November 9, 2016


the tragedy is that we let life pass us by
while we ponder how to live it

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

So soon forgotten

The days pass quickly
so soon forgotten
outside the shells of ourselves

History Repeats

Remember that history repeats
the mighty always fall
and it takes courage to carry on

Sunday, November 6, 2016


Like it or not
the world is governed
by force

Don't let the masks of others fool you
they don't have your best interests in mind

Learning to fly

set your sights high
and you'll learn to fly

Thursday, November 3, 2016


our fear is often bigger than the actual danger

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Beyond Ourselves

our possibilities stuck
in selfish gridlock
when we fail to look
beyond ourselves

Good Intentions

Good intentions will be subdued
eaten up, chewed
unless we preserve a nobler view
