Suffused the immortal soul with questions
Analytical mind asking too much,  heart is without suggestions

Days are wiggling, life is bouncing with dropping hope
Will i be known,  will get fame, all answers are slipping from slope

Where to engage,  where to work hard ,these arduous question eat my heart
Have plenty of wishes, plenty dreams but far too short life, thinking in this world will i be a amazing part?

Like a scrutator, finding way to get out of dark room suffused with questions unanswered
Like a day dreamer lost in wishes, all alone, searching hard but the heart not even whispered

Forget what you've been told.
I'm too big right now to cave,
and I'm sold.
Til death do we part,
or my sanity falls apart.
There's no other end for me.

You've got wings when you fly,
and I'm never coming down.
Some people doubt me,
but soon enough I'm gonna be made of gold.

Build castles with the stones they throw at you,
so that the pebbles are rather stepping stones to
a much more ambient skyline of your life...
grow a wild flower out the dirt they throw at you
of such a flamboyant bloom rather than gloom,
construct a bridge with the stumbling blocks they create
then match ahead like there wasn't a speck ahead of you
and of the shit they put you through make manure
to boost the crop of your seemingly impossible dreams...
It's about you, words hurt, people hurt, dreams fail
hearts break apart and folks throw dirt
but none of these will ever affect you as long as you
never let them do, stumbling blocks are tinted bridges
pebbles are great foundations, wild flowers are as scented
as roses if only you look on the brighter side...
Build castles with the stones they throw at you and
they'll come asking how you managed to achieve
great success unaware that in breaking you they made you...

Sounds swim constantly
Through the aches behind my unopened eyes.
The latest slumber trek is at an end.

The pace of my brain
Akin to a shortsighted grasshopper:
No focus,
Leaping all over the pace.

My inert body
Resolutely immoveable.

Just 5 more minutes.

"You won't be able to save anyone...  Not until
   the whole faces their collective demon, & makes amends."





"Then I'll gather all of the oxygen masks I can..
  & I'll apply them to every passenger, myself.
  I'll take the flight's collective hand,
  & personally escort them ..all,
  through Hell."

"You're wrong, whoever you are...
  I'll save them all  ..each one."




"Then I shall see you soon, my lionhearted hero..."

I am society.

And this is me.

I am the narcissistic fool.
Obnoxious beast.
Cruel friend
And cautious acceptor
Fixated on only one thing.

And that thing is you.

I am the controller of your friends.
and the ones that don’t like you
Because of your fat thighs
or thin lips
or crooked teeth.

My full-time job
is being a self-proclaimed hater.
And a two-faced rat,
stabbing you in the back.
If you ever saw me
-you wouldn’t know which side of me to slap first.

But
-fortunately-
I have humans.
Who seem to have
an unnecessary nature of trying to
change me.

First it was with
Black and White
and then, for some reason,
LGBT.
It took me quite a while to allow women to work.
And now it’s with the whole controversy
of transgenders- he or she?

But one day,
-those determined little buggers-
-feisty freedom seekers-
-admirable able workers-
will somehow, magically, improve me.

Because one day,
each and every one of you,
Shall stand where you belong;
If it is one thing,
you are right
and I am wrong.

Am I right, or am I right?

I just can't get it together
Problems, including the weather
Plan and try
As time goes by
They can't hold me back forever

I dove in head first--
didn't think about it
let the huge bubble
around me burst--
ignored the warning signs
of shallow water all around
not the least fearful
of landing on the ground
instead of the murky, watery sea--
but the ground came fast
and slammed right into me--
still I got my ass right back up again
and climbed that huge ladder
all determined to be the one to win
and jumped this time feet first--
and yep,
still made that bubble burst,
but this time I landed smack into the sea
and swam far, far away from here
seems it was finally my time to just be free!

Can you remember the first time you had ice cream?
As a young child, you were so excited.
Your cute face lit up and your little lungs wanted to scream.

Or when your Father held you high in the skies?
Turned you into a plane.
Not a care in the world to be found in those adorable eyes.

Those times where you held your puppy when you cried.
The first time you were wronged...
How it broke your little heart deep down inside.

Every time I look into those beautiful eyes, that's what I see,
All the pain is silenced,
and I see what life could truly be.


I know I've hurt you before when the thoughts would begin...
But without you, I am truly broken...
For I am nothing more than a Man filled with Sin.

But I did not cast the first stone,
All this time without you,
I've been searching for a way to atone.

I miss you, I'm just a lost boy...
Misguided and hated,
tossed aside by many like an unwanted toy.

And I don't want to lose you,
what else could I live for?
People we care for come in so few...

So here I kneel, down on one knee,
Faithfully yours now and forever,
I'm just a Pawn... Whose fallen for the Queen.

I love you, Rachel. I really do... Not a moment goes by that I don't try and come up with the words that might just bring a smile to your day.

Speak to me, like you did that night. Look at me, your eyes so bright. Walk with me, by pale moon light. Talk to me, we can make this right.

You are the Major to my minor, the roots to my leaves. You are the silver lining my mirror, you bring out the best in me. You are the fire to my water, the sky to my sea. You are the light that casts my shadow, you shine on the worst of me.

Speak to me again, I miss my friend. Look at me again, it doesn't have to end. Walk with me again, out on the sand. Talk to me again, I promise to you I'll make amends.

You are the Major to my minor, the roots to my leaves. You are the silver lining my mirror, you bring out the best in me. You are the fire to my water, the sky to my sea. You are the light that casts my shadow, you shine on the worst of me.

Carry on my dear, there's nothing to fear.
The road ahead appears before nimble minds and loving tears. Carry on my dear, I'll be waiting right here. Counting ahead the years drag every moment you're not here.

You are the Major to my minor, the roots to my leaves. You are the silver lining my mirror, you bring out the best in me. You are the fire to my water, the sky to my sea. You are light that casts my shadow, you shine on the worst of me.

I might turn this into a song, it's not often I flow into a format.
