Hero of the Half Truth
Nick Acosta May 2020
Ice cream sandwiches require refrigeration
Toads on frogs is a swamp violation
I cry out when I peel potatoes
Because they dont wanna be in my moms famous guac

I shout at sand for getting so heated
Ender Dragon eggs cannot be beaten
The size of spiders is all in your head
They're already so ****** about a botched interview

They can't feed their spider babies and mama spider will bite
This just goes to show
You shouldn't take loans from empathetic toasters
The results will surely shock you
I feel bad when I tear down my posters
Their eyes swell with disappointment
I've gotta bounce to my doctors appointment
They say it's all in my head but to me its all I can see

I shout at sand for getting so heated
Ender Dragon eggs cannot be beaten
The size of spiders is all in your head
They're already so ****** about a botched interview

I get sad cuz I lack the permits
To allow beavers to build dams for hermits
Their invasive but so friendly
I feel bad when I eat beans
The results silent but deadly
I will ski by any means
As long as babies go goo goo

My brain glues me to the lou
Because I lose my signal if I move
I must continue my crusade to leave my mark on this bathroom stall
So all will know that someone doesn't care for the outcomes of authorities
Overwhelmed by the silent majority

Activate the rings
Activate the rings
Master Chef must Activate the onion rings

Activate the rings
Activate the rings
Master chef must activate the onion rings

I get sad cuz I lack the permits
To allow beavers to build dams for hermits
Their invasive but so friendly
I feel bad when I eat beans
The results silent but deadly
I will ski by any means
As long as babies go goo goo

Ice cream sandwiches require refrigeration
Toads on frogs is a swamp violation
I cry out when I peel potatoes
Because they dont wanna be in my moms famous guac

The barbecue is great but I lack potatoes
They may be present but their hearts lie vacant

I regret leaving behind my Lucky costers
Their presence was the essence to a good drink
All my cars are clichè like protestors on cake
I'm so lost but my bros are the link
My favorite position is shutes and ladders
Shut the **** up lizard man you wanna bake?

What is real
What is wrong
I cant feel my chest when I play ping long
I'm so stupid but youre a ****** ding ****
Bless this Mess

Sharpen the blade
Nick Acosta Apr 2019
We are constantly cutting
Through negativity
Hardship
Reality

It’s easy when we’re nice and sharp
But even the sharpest blade is bound to dull
Making life harder to cut through

Hardships get harder
Negativity gets more negative
reality gets real

Until eventually we can no longer cut
Broken
We feel useless
But there’s hope

When you oil a machine
Sharpen a blade
It doesn’t make it new again
But it makes it much better
Much sharper
Comparable to when it was new

Much like a machine if you take care of yourself you can go much longer
Therapy
Medicine
Make life worth living
Sharpen the blade that is your life
It’s okay to be dull
It’s okay not to be okay

Pencil
Nick Acosta Apr 2019
Pencils found in many sizes
Sleek and smooth
Shows the world in black and white
Or with a burst of color
Explains our deepest sorrows
Visualizes our highest hopes
Used as a powerful weapon
Creating soul crushing sentences
Or crafting joy inflicting paragraphs
The pencil is an instrument of great pain
As well as great happiness
The pencil gives the wielder great power
It allows the user an incredible outlet
Let it out

Proud
Nick Acosta Apr 2019
I try my hardest
Do my best
It’s never enough
So why try?

For me
For you
For loved ones

What happens when it’s the loved one holding you down
Dragging you
The wolf in sheep’s clothing

I still love you
I just can’t look you in the face
I’d rather be burned at the stake
Than hear you say i could’ve done better

Divide
Nick Acosta Apr 2019
I see you
In pain
Suffering
Dying from the inside out

I run to help
Hug you
Give you assurance
Take your pain away

However there’s an obstacle
Something stopping me
Not physical
But it holds the defensive power comparable to the Great Wall of China

I’m the Persian invaders
You’re the Spartans guarding your home

But unlike the Persians
I bring you no harm
I bring the opposite
I bring you help

Take my ears
No thank you
No payment required

I’ll give you resources
I’ll give you help
I’ll give you hope

The only thing I ask for in return
Is that you stay when you no longer need me

Mindful Adventure
Nick Acosta Apr 2019
The mind churns and turns like clockwork
Using positive thinking like a machine uses gears

However there’s an area in the mind where dark thoughts lurk

The mind also unlocks repressed secrets to expose our biggest fears

Negative thinking bringing pain to the observer

Washing over the feelings the masses like an immensely powerful fervor

Keeping the head above water may seem challenging

But given the right resources and surrounding

You too can make it through the dark without losing the light

No matter how dark it may get
it never leaves your sight

For self care is the torch leading the way

Sometimes it’s about the journey not the destination

However that doesn’t mean the destination can’t be as great is all I will say

— The End —
