Imagination

Imagination fills our days with treasure

Move On

The question in not why do we exist,
but rather why were we meant to exist,
in these passing realms between dreams
where we hold the stars sacred
caged, lost, yearning, dying
moving on

Wearing Truth

The venture was glorious
the soul in its proper attire
clothed in temperance, justice, courage, nobility
and truth

he's leaving

as he leaves his shell
free from life and inflicted pain
currents will take him away from here
climbing he'll sprout wings
to take him on his way
 to live with the creatures above

on judgement day

plug me in
turn me on
let me play
free from sin
finding Zion
on judgment day

Patterns of Life

His option to break free from molded thought
look beyond the patterns of life
see with new eyes
find all that you've sought
time to dream before the night dies
follow nocturnal paths of the heart
it's love you're looking for
you'll soon realize

New Disguise

parting lashes into an overdose of light
stretched flesh exposing tarnished ivory
blue exploding from sky and sea
green jumping from tree to tree
red blossoms diving at me
the morning such a glorious sight
floating through warm liquid paradise
enjoying the world's new disguise

New Worlds

We were there to listen to the madman's last testiment
expecting a big surprise to fall from the sky
as the meaning of life passed us by
leaving new worlds for us to invent

Just Live

so so long
too long
in the fast paced crowd
always trying to catch up with myself
thinking that in the end
there'd be time
to live life
just live
before time runs out

Blaze of Desire

Picture this if you will,
some will call it desolate, others paradise
and others both
though their outlook will change
with the subtle shade of their moods
floating on the winds
until they burn with rage
emotions a wildfire
this blaze of desire

Cleaning Up

the carnage of broken dreams
pilling up, choking off our tomorrows
until we clean up the mess
and build again
on new piles of sand

Sunday, June 19, 2016

Held in place

Concrete boxes of our existence
hold us in place
day after day
to dream of things
of what once were
like freedom

Dangers Unknown

the road of our dreams
filled with dangers unknown
fear holding back so many
filling years with regret
and graves awaiting flowers

Snap

There is a time when straight is drawn too taught,
and the line snaps into the bizarre, so war is waged
youth falling into adulthood
with the idea that success is there just waiting
like fruit on a tree
yet they managed only to stumble hopelessly
year after year, trying to be good
battles to be fought
from a brownstone cage

The bridge

The bridge to the future
filled with things undone
that we leave behind us
in pursuit of dreams for more

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Habits


We sweep away our yesterdays
lack habits we've kicked
painfully putting them away
before the become septic

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Not just a switch

Our destiny is more than preprogrammed functions
or switches we twist and turn off and on
it comes from within, and is manifested without
it needs heart and soul from us each


Monday, June 13, 2016

Behind our backs

Behind our backs we find the truth
where the world looks upon us
waiting for us to turn
and face our judgment

Sunday, June 12, 2016

Cold gray days

The cold gray days of yesterday fade
each passing day takes them away
until the tree of our past
is barren of all its leaves

Saturday, June 11, 2016

Unfinished business

tomorrow is the unfinished business of dreams
there to be grasped at by the daring
and hoped for by the rest

Friday, June 10, 2016

Gone Astray

Freedom is a dream
so hard to hold on to
reach for it and it slips away
hidden behind a screen
twisted and subdued
its possibilities gone astray

Making Music

We make our own music
the songs of our life
some sad, some happy
some too hard to hum

Not everyone wins

This game of chance plays out
with random hands, bits of luck
and losing streaks tossed in
some wonder what it's all about
others don't give a fuck
life is life, not everyone wins

Look within

Tomorrow's waters are not so still
navagating them requires skill
look no further than within
when your journey beings

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Transcend

The winds of time whisper to us
singing of the universe
and the secrets she holds
waiting to be revealed
once we transform
or transcend

Monday, June 6, 2016

Dream Big

Dream big and make it so
the new reality for all those
after us to follow

Sunday, June 5, 2016

reason to celebrate

We surrender our futures with parades
so that we can repeat our mistakes
and have another reason to celebrate


Saturday, June 4, 2016

Remember yesterday

Reach for the sky
when you have the time
and energy
make great strides
if you can
before age
takes youth away
and you struggle
to remember
yesterday

Distorted Views

Our dreams were the future
foundations to build on
multicolor distortions
bending with our fading youth


Thursday, June 2, 2016

Putting on faces

We put on faces to show the world
just what we want it to see
every boy and girl
building their own reality

Loyal Complacency

truth reduced to nothing
talking heads replacing reality
to sedate the huddled masses
into loyal complacency
