A young disciple of discipline is just,
trying to dissipate negative traits.
Hesitations of change are often in frame
but most balloons don't fly straight.
Instead there's the choice of multiple fates,
played upon through invisible games.
Who is listening, we're nowhere near finished yet, when the drifter remains in stages to claim.

Draw upon those who have taught you before, are these new lessons or echoes restored in repetition.
Persistent tricks formed from stubborn habits, hidden in-kind to the back of our brains, where a complete disregard is often retained.
Try observing yourself through the eyes of others, are you sure we're the same when shuffling states.

You know a girl is
really hurt if she calmly
starts to ignore you.
I’m sure it’s startling, to suddenly go from meaning so much, to meaning so little.

I used to be adored
Now I am abhorred
A lot of people used to like my character and want me around, because to be honest I was an addict and a party animal. Nowadays I stay at home or chill with friends and smoke some ****, but now I'm suddenly hated. Doesn't really bother me, but sometimes it bothers me how quickly others show their true colours

it's just a joke,
guilt-joke-trip-wire,
funny feeling lasts four hours
i didn't mean to let your dog run away
i just didn't know you had a dog.

My voice is a whisper of the wind
The sound of leaves dancing on a branch
Do you know what lies underneath my skin?
It's a heart that hurts and feels.

Stop with those wandering eyes
And look at me when I speak
I am not dumb, nor am I wise
But I know what ignoring looks like.

Silence bites harder than words
That's my conclusion to this
So, cast your eyes to the lord
And beg for his forgiveness

You never know when you'll be the ghost
In the presence of someone you love the most.
Thoughts?

If this makes any sense to you, you know the pain.
a pair of bad eggs they do make
by always playing an ill game
we've grown accustom to their shake
over at the forum's house frame

by always playing an ill game
they've caused such great naughtiness
over at the forum's house frame
we've seen all their gross haughtiness

they've caused such great naughtiness
which can't be gladly excused
we've seen all their gross haughtiness
this behaviour they've well used

which can't be gladly excused
a twosome showing disregard
this behaviour they've well used
in the nice recreation yard

we've grown accustom to their shake

a pair of bad eggs they do make

Define pain
And what it has done to you.
It has made you
Who you are.

It makes
Or breaks us.

It opens doors
We thought were closed.

Why do we neglect pain
If it makes us who we are?
I don't know. I myself have low tolerance for pain.
George Krokos Feb 2018
It's each person to themselves that has been a cause of much pain
because they're mostly interested in what with they only can gain.
They don't really give a **** about how anyone else might be going
but continue on for their own sakes regardless of what life is showing.

cities with their
glass skin
iron bones
gray flesh
of concrete
and a soul of
light bulbs
silhouettes,
the skylines…
the giants that
swallow us whole
because
we didn't know
how to stop
the magic of
the beanstalk
and now
that we have raised
our titans to unite us
we gave them will
we gave them back
the gift of fire
and it returns
to **** the life in
to burn the bridges
throughout and within…
our Atlases...
are they home
the shelter, still,
or are they now
the labyrinth
and the Minotaur
