Going Down

when your ship comes in
make sure it can float
otherwise
the only place it's taking you
is down

The world crumbles

Youth can build a better future
if they can keep their optimism
or else the world will crumble

Feeding time

what we think we become
so feed your mind well

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Who we are

we need to be who we are
not who others want us to be

Monday, September 26, 2016

Build It

The future we want
is one we need to build
it won't happen by itself

Flash of confusion

In a flash of confusion
nature created man
a mistake at best
destined for extinction

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Can't control time

We can't control time
it passes with or without us

Friday, September 23, 2016

World of chance

There's no safety net
in this world of chance

Thursday, September 22, 2016

Fools

We've fooled ourselves
into thinking we've got something to protect

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Relief

The relief we find in life is in the moments in between

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Take us away

We toil through our days
waiting for far off dreams
to come take us away

In the end

in the end, our true nature will be revealed....

Move along

When we're gone
there's one thing you can count on
and that's for the world to move along

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Waiting

we wait and wait for a future that never arrives

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Passing Seconds

the future is a void
there waiting for you
as each second passes away

Friday, September 16, 2016

Long Gone

before we leave our days behind
memories will fade with time
the past just a lonely haze
of long gone days

Make it simple

simpler times are the ones we make for ourselves
the rest is just an illusion to fool ourselves
so that we can say it was better way back when

Lost Summers

The summers of life are lost
day by day forgotten
come the long winter of dying

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Destinations

our plans don't always
take us to expected destinations

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

No control

life's a dance joyous and fanciful
once you realize you've got no control


Out of control

fate deals us our cards
thinking otherwise is for fools
who deceive themselves
into believing they've got control


Monday, September 12, 2016

Held Dear

If we really held our freedom dear
we wouldn't give so much of it away
for living without it
is like taking away the breath of life

Sunday, September 11, 2016

Unsafe

We are told many things
few if any are true
so, we're expected to have faith
and give power to an elite few
who promise hope and change
while the world grows more unsafe

It's in our nature

humanity is deconstructive
always taking the world apart
and counting the left over pieces
it's in our nature to destroy

Friday, September 9, 2016

Shadows of Youth

youth leaves its shadows
in our memories
making events seem larger
and life grander
with time
than it really was

Thursday, September 8, 2016

Something New

moments in the making
gain their importance in relfection
becoming something new in the process

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

Reminders

Nature will remind us
of our insignificance
and our place
in the scheme of things

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

Filled with joy

fill your days with song
and you fill them with joy

Monday, September 5, 2016

Perspective

from above all seems small
like our problems
once put into perspective

Sunday, September 4, 2016

Within the dream

the illusion is a dream
we live within it
only to awaken
when it's over

Saturday, September 3, 2016

Standing Tall

Our future stands tall
built from blocks of the past
one stone at a time
waiting for us to fill it with promise

Friday, September 2, 2016

Illusion of Memory

We can never go back
the illusion of memories
there to fool us
into thinking differently

Thursday, September 1, 2016

Slow discovery

Life taken in stride has distant destinations
they await slow discovery
