Freedom should be free,
Being a friend shouldnt have to end,
Relationships shouldn't sink,
Gratitude is the absence of attitude,
Hate will eat at your heart,
Health is giving yourself time to heal,
Forgiveness is something worth giving,
Beauty is when you allow yourself to just be,
Humanity  should come naturally to humans,
And love should just be love

I stashed your heart at the highest pedestal,
So It can only be touched by the God I pray to,
I pray for you,

When things seem grim,
Your smile becomes their reaper,
Universe...please keep her,
I pray for you,

A poet once said,
Don't think too much,

But  my afflictions are the author of my words,
So I replied and said  that thinking too much is what poets do,
Isnt ours the ability  to question  the meaning of simple things,

The poet said maybe that's what you do,
Some of us just simplify complex  moments to sentence or two,

So I replied and asked,
why do we try to put rhythms and create images for such simple matters?,

The poet said "its simply because they matter"

Life feels like it either moves too fast or too slow,
You lack peace when your heart is too warm or too cold,
I see dead people,
We all just seem like lost and wondering souls,
Life feels easier  when you believe  that someone else is in control,
It's all in His hands now,
is it wrong if I feel like letting it all go

The universe  cultivated energy and dirt uniquely just for me,
The stars shifted approximately  30cm apart to make space for me,
this can't just be make believe
Why would  nature so diligently support my need to breathe,
Why does the earth rotate the cosmos just to give me time to sleep,
Was DNA really split between countless kings and queens just so I could be,
.. Me?

This Drug,
My cornerstone,
I'd rather live on the corner ******,
Than answer to despair on this office phone,
Just a few minutes  left before my mind starts to undress,
My sanity is a red pill,
It's the only thing that breaches my defense,
I need to take this drug,
Before the pain matures and takes its first steps,
I'm already on the edge,
I'm not depressed,
I am not depressed!
Whats your drug?

The feeling of dying,
freedom from crying,
Released from trying,
No more sorrows prying,
Sanity goes unchecked,
The eyes won't drown in tears like the sun does when it sets,
For death is violent and cursed,
Yet more peaceful than birth
