Shooter

Shooter
What makes you this way
Is it the game on your computer
Or is it in your DNA?

Is it alcohol?
Or drugs?
The urge to end it all?
Deathly Spirits, do they tug at you?

Or is it PTSD?
Images and feelings from long ago
That you can’t unsee?
What made us cross the line 19 years ago?————————————
Why?
I’ve always wondered why so many shootings are happening nowadays. What is it individually that causes these, and what are exactly are they thinking?

The Cruel Mother (a la 2018)
Micah G Nov 2018
In the pale white light
    Fine Flowers in the valley
She learned of child to come in the night
    The green leaves they grow rarely

The night came sooner than expected, it did
    Fine Flowers in the valley
She went to the clinic and did it in
    The green leaves they grow rarely

Walking down the street she saw a child
    Fine Flowers in the valley
And saw the love they shared and smiled
    The green leaves they grow rarely
A shorter, modern take on The Cruel Mother
Don’t take this the wrong way. It is in no way meant to throw shade or degrade those who have had abortions.
I very much disagree with them but can’t put myself in their shoes as a male.

Bleed
Micah G Nov 2019
They say I cannot hurt,
They say I can't complain,
They say my pain is a fantasy
They have not seen my brain.

They say I am okay,
They say that I am cured,
They say my problems are in my head
Of that they can be sure.

They say that I am strong,
They say that I am weak,
They cannot decide for sake of my mind
And that is why I bleed.

Defy
Micah G Nov 2018
Shhh
Say the waves of the angry sea

I respond with every once of rebellion in me
I will be who I want me to be
Stay true to yourself and remember who your are

Micah G Nov 2019
I am tongue-tied
And I hesitate
To ask you
What I need of you

I was a tad hurt before
That is true
But I don't see pain in you
I see a brightness

I want to take the leap

Why I Write
Micah G Jun 2019
I write mostly for acceptance
That much is true
But mostly it is
To escape

My kind is a terrible place
Dark business
Unproclaimed and without much ado
Scarred by Evils omnipresence

While they write of love that is true
I write of darkness’ admittance
Despite its bitter aftertaste
I never seek repentance

Liberty
Micah G Nov 2018
A leaf in the wind
Free from the tree that bound it
But carried by hard winds
What is freedom to you? At what cost does it come?

All it contains
Is poetry plain
And that’s all that I have to say

Anti
Micah G Jun 2019
Do not talk to me,
I could care less.
I’d rather slip a noose round my neck,
A gun would be too much of a mess.
And besides, there’s more fun in being alive.
So for now I keep my mind in check,
And I sleep a little less.
James slips a noose around my neck.

Peace
Micah G Nov 2019
The midnight ink.
Perfectly dabbled upon the printed page
Or written,
I don’t discriminate.

The breath I feel in each turned page,
And the life in my fingertips
As they brush
The timid paper.

My thoughts,
Flowing blissfully by
In harmony
With the black type.

The lamp next to me,
Providing necessary lumination
For my endeavor.
A beacon of hope in the black room.

That is peace.
Currently reading “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking”. It’s good so far. I’m an INTJ-A myself so it is relevant it seems. Picked it up today at HPB.

Freestyling Poetry #1
Micah G Nov 2018
I carry the weight of my sin
I feel no worth within
ME
Is all I see at times
Self-righteousness make me blind
It’s hard to see
Anything but
RED
With all this anger in me
Just leave me be
Or I’ll snap and you may be
Excessively
HURT
I’ve done it before
And I’ll do it again
I’ll leave not only your heart but your body sore
I’m sorry bro
Freestyled in 1 min 24 sec. what do you guys think?

If I am Empty
Micah G Feb 2020
If I am empty, lad
Then I must be fillable
And forsaken land
Then I am still tillable
So hand me a pint
And I’ll drink the tankard full
And we’ll be on our merry way

Cowboy
Micah G Nov 2018
I am not of this day and age
I much belong to the open range

My Texan spirit you cannot cage
I live by many an old adage

I feel at home with danger close
A gun on my hip and a glimmer of hope

I am like the antelope
Skittish with no way to cope

Tip my hat off to the side
Here or there I can’t decide

I’m a cowboy till I die
Thats is something you’ll never pry

Who Remains?
Micah G Feb 2020
When flesh prevails
And spirit fails
Who remains?

When passions die
And evil lies
Who remains?

When love is lost
And warm faith is frost
Who remains?

When blood is shed
And near is death
Who remains?

When the others fall
And one stands tall
Who remains?

I will tell you who remains
I will tell you who saves with grace
Yahweh saves

Our Father remains

The Kids Aren’t Alright
Micah G Nov 2018
Lost in a world we don’t know
But grew up in
We don’t know what to do
So we drink, and get high
And we laugh and we cry
And love (or so we think), and we
Have issues but are too proud to see a shrink
So eventually we die
We blow our brains out and slit our wrists
We overdose and drive off cliffs
You get it
And meanwhile
Those of us who survive support those who are lost
When we are still not out of the dark yet
I’m fine but this is for a friend

Of the same wood, but they will
Never touch despite this

Micah G Nov 2018
I loved you
But you didn’t back
You said that you did, too
But then you went behind my back

So I say it’s time to cut the crap
I’ve had enough of you
Leave me to the scars and the cracks
I knew you were too good to be true
Yeah

Kevlar

You are my body armor

You protect me from enemy fire
You secure me in situations dire

You are heavy but the end result
Is worth the struggle
Who is your Kevlar?

Your soul pleads with you to leave - -
So you leave the house
You get in the car, city bound

Why I Write Haiku
Micah G Nov 2018
Why I write haiku
Because it is a puzzle
And I forget you

Why I write haiku
Because it is a puzzle
And I forget you
You are like the winter snow
And this is a summer rain
A (very) short Renga-style haiku Inspired by Haydi’s “like you”
Micah G Nov 2018
Watashi wa su o taberu ama-sa to
kōshinryō ni kuwaete kanojo wa kōcha
de watashi o tsukutta
I taste vinegar
Along with sweetness and spice
In the tea she made me

Where The West Wind Blows
Micah G Nov 2018
If you stand still and listen
You may hear in a whisper,
Coming
The West Wind

Like a storm it approaches
Each man and woman
slowly,
The West Wind

It is the end of an era
The beginning of new life
surely,
The West Wind

One day it will reach you
It will take us too
soon,
The West Wind

But where will we be taken
If and where will we awaken
Death...
The West Wind
We all must come to grips with our mortality, and what we will do with what time we have. And where we are going afterwards....

I’m not worthy
Micah G Nov 2018
I’m nothing special
I could easily be a millionaire before 30
I have faced no true adversity
Despite my everyday struggles

I have no backstory
I have no PAIN
I feel nothing
To my sin I am enslaved

I go to church
And I have a nice truck
I have everything set before me
Success is within my grasp

I am not worthy to be here
I am the ultimate grey man
I’m white and straight
The image of evil to fools
Basically

Testament
Micah G Feb 2020
There once was only
...
Until one day a sound resounded in the heavens
Rebounded at each barrier
Shattering and shaking
Breaking the woven fabric
Like it was attacking a bandit
Stealing potential.
And now we have this astounding creation
Cremated by human hands
And blandly recalled in sub-par bars
and meter and rhyme
Because none can do it justice
This universe and space and time.
Bittersweet indeed.
And every day more tears rain down
from Elohim eyes
While we stagnate satisfied by
Evil lives
Content to die without purpose
Victims of
Passion, Politics, *******,
Painkillers, Pandemics, Parlor talk
And we walk steady
Rocking our inadequacy for all to see
Never to see the salt is gone
And all we reap is weeping
And broken teeth.

The Final Scene
Micah G Jun 2019
Shadows dance around and round,
Into the wall my head does pound.
My wrists lie bare to the floor,
My brother enters through the door.
He finally sees what he always saw,
Except now open lies his filthy maw.
The pain I cause is worthy today.
Now I lie here, finally slain...
