The Greatest Theft
There is nothing left
You achieved the greatest theft
You took my body heart and soul
I plummet down the valley in a roll
Crashing into trees and rocks
Then strapped down with secure locks        
Thrown into the frigid abyss
With the emptiness of a cold kiss
I didn't think you were this cruel
I pity your enemies they're ******* fools

A fraction of war.

The dead and wounded around.
A fraction of war.

Photography-
Brandon Amberger Aug 2019
Photography to me, is capturing fractions of moments that are so mesemerizing a fraction is still beautiful.  I don’t mean this in a bad way either. To be honest a photo doesn’t ever give me the full experience and won’t ever will. But these moments lived where so amazing even just a fraction is beautiful. You’ll never capture the taste, the smell, the hair standing up on your back. Your capturing just one of our senses and that by itself is miraculous.

The Human Voice
Brandon Amberger Jul 2019
The human voice is the most dynamic
and powerful tool ever utilized.
Brandon Amberger Jun 2019
But have you seen the true darkness?
Floating all alone in the ocean.
Creatures unimaginable, even within dreams below.
Relentless, swarming and circling of unknown proportions.
Just watching and waiting calmly.
Because it’s just a matter of time.
Till everything goes black.

I want to give
Brandon Amberger Jun 2019
I want to give hope to the hopeless.
I want to give guidance to the lost.
I want to give joy to the depressed.
I want to give love to the hated.
I want to give praise to the forgotten.
I want to give courage to the fearful.
I want to give compassion to the heartless.
I want to give strength to the weak.

Heroes
Brandon Amberger Jan 2019
Heroes are not determined by the skills they were born with, nor what they have gained.

They are determined by the will power they have to overcome unimaginable dire adversity, fear and pain.

In order to help others in this crucifying world

The Good Team
Brandon Amberger Feb 2018
I exhaled, inhaled and held the air.
Did this seven times as a pair.
Attempting to calm the mind.
To think logically and kind.
Now quiet, I begin some plans.
To cheer as all the same fans.
If you think about it, it’s ironic.
You don’t have to be smart or iconic.
It begins with pride in your community.
To clean up some trash with unity.
You may ask the question, "Why?"
Possibly some pride for my last goodbye.
To hold a standard for the earth.
To give every child an equal chance at birth.
Brandon Amberger Feb 2018
Well I'm glad you asked.
I'm your next monumental task.
Call me Rufus because I'm about to make your empire crumble.
From my earthquaking hook, it will make the crowds rumble.
Float like a butterfly, hit like Tyson.
I got the strength of the All American Bison.
That left they say is “the kiss of death” please,
you haven't seen a real American breed.
A combo of the world's greatest.
My team is the smartest and latest.
What could you have to possibly show?
I’ll hit you with the jab high and low.
You’re skills of movement and power are ****.
****, I can’t wait to make you cry and quit

My days left
Brandon Amberger Feb 2018
Quite scary to know we have “x” days remaining
I will never lose a day because it’s raining
But I must protect what I hold most dear
It is time with family and friends maybe some beer
Laughs, stories of heroes and foes
Live my life bold and loud, not careful on tippy toes.
Because why would you ever be quiet and hide?
Life can be a euphoric one hell of a ride.

Old Fashion Class
Brandon Amberger Feb 2018
I'm bringing back that old fashion class
Place my jacket down for her to sit on the grass
Being a gentleman is alive and well
Actually right now there are plenty and swell
We don't say much but please and thank you
Once in a while a god bless you
And it's really not that daunting
Being honest isn't really that haunting
You and I just want them to smile
All day all night not just for a while
Let them vent and curse
Even buy that new Gucci purse
Because their your true best friend
They’re happiness till the end
Happiness love oldfashion

a little bit of honey
Brandon Amberger Dec 2016
What a beautiful day
Nice breeze right off the bay
The Hammock swaying
Birds chirping and playing
The sun bright and sunny
Ice tea with a little bit of honey
A patch of daisies so yellow
Could this day be anymore mellow
Deep breathes of fresh air
This feeling of balance is rare

An Equal Chance at Birth
Brandon Amberger Jul 2016
Come here and take my hand
Together right now we take our last stand
To end this ******* pitiful corruption
The ignorant will no longer be a disruption
You are probably wondering how
I’ll tell you this now we will never bow
No one said this would be easy
For a while, we will be busy
We’ll start with the hardworking and the brave
They’re the people who can pull off the save
The way of progression is always right
This will be the main event fight
Now roll both your sleeves
Don’t use your back bend your knees
We’re improving this world Earth
So every kid has an equal chance at birth

Without the Shadows
Brandon Amberger Jun 2016
See Me Without the Shadows
Judge me on my worst lows
When I had my worst day
When I went astray
Now knowing all these things
Would you be ok if I became of one the kings?
I would assume probably not
You’d think our society would rot
You fear I would do it all again
And I understand because of the pain
But what about the good
If I were to blossom into adulthood
The possibility of redemption
Would I have the right of exemption?
Do you believe that people can change
If my mind would mix up and rearrange
If I would mature and be just
I’d have to work my *** off for your trust
I’ve realized that everyone wants joy
So here, right now I’m no boy
Now I’m a mature young man
Who has one hell of a plan

The Road to Redemption
Brandon Amberger May 2016
The Road to redemption
Is a daunting path
It’s an uphill battle
That is slippery and steep
It goes against the current
In the frigid rough rapids
With rays of blistering sun
A jagged wall of obsidian
And a sea of sand
There are no shortcuts
Only cuts, scrapes and bruises
What you did in the past will never be forgotten
But what you are remembered for will have changed.

I accept the Challenge
Brandon Amberger Apr 2016
I Brandon Amberger accept #TheChallenge
This is not a request nor demand, it is a challenge. This challenge is to be the better person and to take responsibility for your actions. To swallow your pride so that instead of arguing you choose to shut your mouth, do the right thing, and get the job done. To simply follow the principle "treat others, how you would like to be treated"
I'll tell you why you should accept my challenge. It's to set an example and improve our future for our kids. If you don't have kids, you do it for your family's kids and your friends' kids. Everyone deserves the same chance. For those of you who have influence, you have higher expectations. Why? You have power and with power comes responsibility. So I’m challenging the CEO’s, the interns, students, actresses, lawyers, foreman, electricians, bus-boy, waitress, teachers, children, the parents, and everyone alive to accept.
I really, really hope you become a challenger. For those of you who do accept, there is no punishment, nor reward. Just gratuity for doing the right thing. Now do you accept the challenge?
I'm sorry this is not a poem but this is how i feel. I do believe part of poetry is expressing how you feel though, so that's why I wrote this on here.

ADHD
Brandon Amberger Apr 2016
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
You may now want to take out the recorder
This world may label it as a weakness
But I’m quite fond that it gives me a type of uniqueness
Although my mind bounces around
Like a bouncy ball all over town
It sometimes allows me to be still
When I find something that gives me a thrill
Instead of giving me that medication
Allow my mind to experience that sensation
Of it’s ability to go full throttle top gear
It may seem irrational and unclear
But trust me the task assigned
Will be completed from a mastermind

One day I'll Run Into You
Brandon Amberger Apr 2016
You’re the one that got away
You’re the one I hope to see everyday
Just to get a second long glance
We could’ve had a magical romance
Days where we would just lay on soft grass
Talking about that time we both fell on our ***
We could’ve had so many laughs
Thousands of smiles in photographs
I’m not even a religious believer
But I pray everyday to reduce the love fever
I sincerely miss you
Hopefully one day I’ll run into you

I took a glance
Brandon Amberger Apr 2016
I took a glance
Towards those who dance
And just by chance
I saw this vagrant lass
Radiating beauty like a star of colossal mass
So eloquent with her every pass
She swirls and weaves
Smiles and receives
I wonder if it is I, she perceives?

Father and Son
Brandon Amberger Feb 2016
Truly unfathomable
What I have just witnessed
It was mesmerizing, cheerful, and even magical
This man just experienced the ultimate joy
Holding this itty bitty boy
With just hope this little man
Could create so many things for this world
He had no fears no chance of tears
They looked into each other’s eyes
Mentor and apprentice
This was true happiness

A Brutal Cold War
Brandon Amberger Jan 2016
I can’t take this any more
It’s truly a brutal cold war
With the deception and spite
Full of anger, pain, suffering we fight
Between family that are now foes
We hit each other with low blows
It’s easy, wicked and rotten
We don’t remember the good, it’s just forgotten
With favoritism and neglect
Without the slightest respect
We are parasitic infestations
Just a group of ****** up generations

Like a Knight
Brandon Amberger Dec 2015
Dash like the wind
Towards the place you’d like to be
No crack too small
No wall too tall
You can go with the flow
This will surely let you grow
Choose your own path
Don’t be intimidated by their wrath
Who cares if it’s normal
Normally fun isn’t abnormal
Live with tradition
Under your condition
Create something that’ll last for the ages
So beautiful that it’s displayed on stages
Always do right
You’ll be respected like a knight

College Guy
Brandon Amberger Dec 2015
Man oh Man
We’ve had a great run
Glad none of us ended up with a son
We started off confused and dumb
Drunk listening to that big *** bass drum
Not knowing where to get the ***** or bud
Drinking some ****** alcoholic mud
We’ve had plenty of laughs
I could show you the numbers on the graphs
A few weird roommates along the way
But still not hoping for May
Finals ****** even with the addy
Us all guys hoping the girls call us daddy
Graduation came really really fast
I couldn’t have got better friends if I asked
Now it’s not time to say goodbye
Hold your tears don’t cry
It’s just a see ya later
When we’re all greater

Nature vs Manmade
Brandon Amberger Dec 2015
I saw a flower
So miniscule compared to a tower
But it’s beauty so superior
The tower so inferior
Though a piece of art
Created by someone so smart
But a flower wasn’t designed
Nor created by mankind
Instead a natural piece
It’s life only a temporary lease
Nothing is forever
Nor constant, always an unpredictable endeavor
But that’s the beauty
Nature’s easily attainable duty
The want, the need, to continue on
As we look forward towards the next dawn

Out of Their Comfort Zone
Brandon Amberger Dec 2015
Natural Originality
With a crazy mentality
Creates a wicked Individuality

When not attached to any wires
It can spread like a wild fire
And it inspires

For those who aren’t afraid
Will be made
Others will have prayed

That they won’t become just another clone
That they were put out of their comfort zone
And one day these people will be well known

Love is an infestation
Brandon Amberger Dec 2015
Your beauty is undeniable
I’ll always be reliable
Starting with your smile
Bright enough from a mile
You’re down to earth
Even past the bottommost spec of dirt
Your mind so pure
Easily the sorrow cure
I must confess
Why I believe I’m blessed
I’m your foundation
And Salvation
From that foundation you arise
From yours so do I
Spiraling beyond that blue sky
After that last faint good bye
It's simple love is an infestation
Uncontrollable and even Endurable through incarceration

This is Everyone's Job
Brandon Amberger Dec 2015
What are people doing?
What are people pursuing?
This senseless violence is sad.
I don’t give a **** if you’re mad.
I don’t care about your race
or if you’ve got a pretty face
I don’t care how much money you make,
because you could easily be fake.
You don’t have the right to oppress,
even if you’re dealing with a huge mess.
There is no reason to hurt someone
What if it was your loved one
Everyone has a duty,
to improve this innocent raw beauty.
Now trust me, it’s worth your time.
I can guarantee, it will improve your prime.
Doing some cause and affect.
You can see your method is incorrect
Just look at history, its not pretty
It’s like a scary deadly city
It’s despicable and gritty
Overpopulated with death and destruction
With no positive construction
Our society is now old
Our society should not be that cold
I'll tell you my goal
It’s to dig us out of this hole
During my lifetime
I want to begin a never ending peacetime
Where we concentrate on science and art
Where we all can have fun taking part

This is everyone's job.

An atmospheric calm
In the shade under the palms
A refreshing salty sea breeze
The warm white sand of the Florida keys
Gentle waves approach the shore
Probably take a nap till four
Happy hour at five
Stunning! We all arrive
Ready to dance on the stage
We’re living up our golden age
Our feet now tire
We’ll head to the beach campfire
