Sibling Rivalry
Running for his life, he made his courage known
Turning to try to turn the tide, his strong stance surely shown
Frowning upon the enemy face, he waited for the fight
pounding, stomping around the corner, his foe came into sight
...Questioning the crying kid...
he hug'd his brother tight

Being Desirable
Being desirable messes with your mind
Think this through and i think you will find
It’s better to be bashful and shy
Then beautiful, bodacious, and that kind of guy
Cause that kind of guy goes away in time
And then you’ll be left with a story like mine.
never get ahead of yourself, always be righteous

The Color…
The color blue is many things
The sky, the ocean, and sea
The color green is also there
The grass, the frogs, and trees
The color red, like beautiful death
The flames, the blood, and then
The color black, an evil fright
Death itself, and fear, and night
the world is very colorful if you pay attention

Humanity v.s. Individuality
I am hungry for beef and blood
I cannot stop myself or run
I crave for food and violence too
As a human being its what i do
And yet ill wait, for i am my own
And refusing desire is what i’ll show
this poem portrays the evil of man, and the ability of every individual in humanity to refuse desire and temptation

Alcohol Rain
Is it too much to ask
For you to put down the flask?
Is it too much to say
You're throwing your life away?
I guess it doesn't matter, your mind is made
I cant stop you or the alcohol rain
this poem is for all those who don't try at all to give up a bad addiction, not for those who try and fail, i salute those who try and fail

Feather Fall

how weightless life can be

how to be at peace

suicide and sacrifice
You can be afraid of love
you can be afraid of life
but for you, Ther'll be no suicide
and I will Not let you sacrifice
you are my equal in every way
you cant keep putting you down
you are a human being, today
and tommorrow you'll still be around
it should never come to suicide, theres always anouther way out, and you should never offer yourself up just because you think your less than somebody else

Rage Is Not Courage
courage is a soldier who defends his home with might
rage is a warrior who fights without foresight
courage is the blessed soul who knows when what is right
rage is a flawed man, who gives his life with spite

The Righteous help
Be a humble spirit
And one day you will find
That being humble and accepting
Will help make up your mind

Only you can be the bigger man
And then one day you’ll find a bride

Persistence and Passion
Failure is my teacher
And success, my graduation
Love does not come from above
It comes from determination
Persistence and passion will rebel
Redemption will be mine

The Storm Of Tranquility
Peace and quiet can be a storm
I’ve seen it once or twice
The raging winds of solitude
The stillness, cold as ice
Raining emptiness into my head
And flooding it with despair
I once welcomed tranquility
And now…
I dont even dare

WonderLand
guide me to a wonderland
where poets write for free
where musicians play and blind men see
and we all live in harmony

guide me to a wonderland
where oppression  fades like chalk
where freedom is as common as a pebble or a rock
and the love will never stop

guide me to a wonderland
where the joy shines like the sun
and everywhere you look, its children having fun
and theres no such thing as a gun
"why cant we be friends..."

Freedom Is Agnostic
Freedom is agnostic
because you can't always tell
whether you ar right or wrong
does no guidance mean no hell?
Freedom is agnostic
because you control your fate
no one told you what to do
but hey, at least you're safe
Freedom is agnostic
of this, i am aware
i will proudly accept my freedom
cause i know at least its fair

Spark of Selfless
when she says she wants to cut
upon the wings of her own feathered emotions
i was ignorant

when she said suicide was the only way out
and she needed a rope to grasp
i was ignorant

when she said she needed me
and i turned my back on her

she was gone

...but no more...

Passion is a burning flame
where adversity is but gasoline
my passion will burn, and wont soon expire

there's no stopping my passion or my poems, and if you try, i'm only going to write more

Yesterday
Yesterday, held many words
Yesterday, flew many birds
Yesterday, your pride expired
Yesterday, humanity was acquired
Today, rises a new wise man
Today, begins a wise mans stand
Today, knowledge will be spread to your peers
Today, you shall conquer your fears
And tomorrow, you shall have joy at last
knowing you spread your knowledge so fast.
yesterday you were a little more ignorant than today,
and tomorrow you will be happy

Ball And Chain
My emotions are a ball and chain
A weapon of longing and pain
as i'm held hostage by righteousness and pride
as i'm longing for my long lost bride
the world around me sheds its shell
and i'm stuck here, in my lonely hell
found this in one of poem journals, the pages were stuck together xD

Salem Witch Trials
The wabanaki tyrants
A threat that's come and gone
mercy luis’s family
now butchered like a hog
16 years now have past
and trials on its way
guilty is as guilty's charged
its barrows turn to play
20 victims laid to rest
20 “witches” hanged
180 more accused
from 93’ and 92’
but many more to blame
for the vessels of the Salem ways
now cold and heartless souls
accusing innocent lives, for shame!
now unfair trials we shall hold...
this poem is historically accurate to the last detail, and not mankind's greatest moment

Bit desire is tugging at my side
and forever I wont be able to hide
So help me be Content fair maiden

Forget Her
Righteousness won't always be there
Anger will stay true
Sometimes love can't be repaired
No matter what, just learn to be you
One day when you're old and gray
And your life is at a close
Your memories will toss out the day
You left her in the cold
move on as a last resort, and when you do, forgive yourself for doing so

The Neverending Feud
The evening shall lay waste to the day
As it retreats over the horizon
The day shall counter strike its way
Up unto the morning
And i'll be waiting and watching as i do
For the end to the neverending feud

Shine Together
my love waits on the rising sun
beyond the sea and tides
shes knows no boundary fears no harm
and knows not of my crime

my loves waits on the throne of my heart
and in my mortal soul
i know she will sit there again
when life has taken its toll

my love swims in the fountain of youth
her spirit does not die
even when she fades away
her memory will stay mine

and even though her path is harsh
she will shine forever
cause now you know the love i've shown
and we will shine together

my love will never back away
from a fight or from a cause
my love does care too much for me
and for that she'll never stop

my love reflects in the waters of life
magnificent as the stars
she's as innocent as a puppy dog
and is more beautiful than the heavens are

my love is not just a legend
the perfect woman, and kind
one day we will be married and then
she'll be mine and only mine

and even though her path is harsh
she will shine forever
cuz now you know the love i've shown
and we will shine together

my love is a mockingjay
shes free and full of pride
my love soon will be with me
and soon she'll be my wife

my love is the rocky mountains
shes sturdy like a tree
and even through her oppression
she and i will be

my love she is the clear blue sky
shell drive away a cloud of gloom
and with her ill be happy evermore
until i reach my tomb

and even though her path is harsh
she will shine forever
cuz now you know the love i've shown
and we will shine together
this used to be a song i wrote, but i figured its more useful as a poem

Papa Bobby
his name was papa bobby
or it was to his baby
but his baby was me
so i'll just call him daddy

he lived in a house
with a lover, a spouse
and he said he loved me
but then gone was my safety
for he saw some bad things
and that changed him, his being
and then he changed me
when he messed with my mommy

and though he no longer lives
and even though his memory fibs
i still remember my daddy
before the war made him a baddy
Everyone makes mistakes, and those mistakes should not dictate your charactor

Forgive Yourself
Forgive yourself, even when they won't
For they dont always understand
When words are tossed about like stones
And you don't know if you can
When lies are spread like a wild fire
When your friends are blinded by fear
Even when you’re indescribably tired
And you can even manage a tear
Forgive yourself, Even when they don't
Your old life will be back soon
Nothing is unforgivable
Oh! And be humble and righteous too!
this is my favorite of all the poetry i've written because it applies so often, and leads to a better life

Really? is that so?

The Burden Of A Soldier
They talk of the power dred has over beauty
They never seem to mention the clouds
They talk of the fire, the death, and the fury
But never of songs or sounds
Thy talk of the battles they've lost against evil
They talk of their fallen companions
I will talk of the ocean and stars
And all of the comforts that command them
Gift to me my solitude please
I regret to inform you that you must leave
Your walking all over my “unholy place”
Not “unholy” as in Satan
It’s more like disgrace
I want to be left in my peace
I've done some bad things, got grit in my teeth
So leave me now, i wont ask again
Leave me, for i am not a good man.
the criminal that really deserves a second chance, is the righteous one

But you and i are one and the same
And righteousness is the name of our game
tribute to all those who have turned the other cheek in their time

Im fucking trash
Yea im ******* trash and i know it
Im a ******* ******* and i dont deserve to live
Everytime i get her trust back
I say one stupid thing
And its gone again
I dont know why i say it
Its stupid, for absolutly no reason
I lied to her face
Because i thought it would help
For some weird ******* reason
Why did i think that?
That is no way to keep her trust

Im ******* trash
And she deserves better
Why do i keep her chained to me
I love her so much
But i keep breaking her heart
And making her question her trust
Its stupid, why do i do that

The other night was amazing
We talked and cuddled and shared stories and it was magical
Things were looking so great
It was the best night of my life
And now its being followed by the worst day
A day where i make her feel horrable
Because of ANOTHER
stupid, inconsiderate thing
That i said

Im ******* trash
And i wish there was some way to make it up to her

And never let her down again
Im ******* trash

Dreamland
I've walked a trillion miles,
and lived throughout eternity,
i've done all this in the dream world,
as a sleeping entity.
i've saved the world from evil,
and conquered over good,
but out here in the real world,
i do nothing as i should.
i'm addicted to the dreamland,
its heaven in my mind,
in there i found a lover,
but out here, i'm lost in time
i once got addicted to sleeping...i slept 10 hours a day because i loved the dreams i was having...but now i know...life in paradise is no life at all

To Irritate An Instrument
to irritate an instrument
to intrude into an interlude
to extract the extrapolation
from a well developed tune

to manipulate the melody
to solo with your soul
and finally to finish
with your really groovy goal

Lots of ways to sing it sad
Lots of ways to gig real good
Lots of ways to write it wrong
or dance to it, like you do
Music isn't just in the tempo,
there's also lyrics and notes and dance and above all, personallity

Essay On Counting Sheep
"Count the sheep
To go to sleep"
Said my mom when i was little

"Count the sheep
Rather than weep"
And i listened
For that riddle

I listened for my mother
For my whole life
But for now

Now i must listen
When my heart
Subseeds to frown

And that riddle echos on
And my mind begins to spin
And without a doubt
I have to shout...
The sheep will soon run out

"Count the sheep
To go to sleep...
Until u count no more,
Then go to bed, and wait instead,
Until u know what you wait for."
One day you must say goodbye to the traditions of the past, you must also learn to recognise whats truely just.

Righteous Heart
someday i will be a man
with a kind and righteous heart
even when love does not find me
i'll still have a lovely start
for although i’m not a charmer
and although i am insane
a righteous light may guide me
through the shadows of resentment and pain
i once wrote a poem called "shadow of regret" now that that stage of my life had ended, this is the refutation to that, being righteous did indeed guide me through that resentment, and all it took was a little persistance

Thought Provoking
Have you ever wondered why...

Why the sun rests in the sky
why the moon floats and fly's
and they never idle by...

Have you ever wondered why...

why death is hard to bite
why life itself is pushing
for friends and family to die...

Have you ever stopped to think...

though all that is unknown
your here and now is real...
stop thinking like your gone
its okay to be lost in thought, but also pay attention to what is going on around you, cherish the life that you have and recognize what is real in front of you

and i will love her all my life
my open high, my loves delight

Accept The Past
You can't change the past
Its too much to handle
Let go now fast
This is not a scandal
How could you have known your words will tear
How could you have known
You should not have feared,
You couldn't get it
So you shouldn't regret it
there's a saying in show business, "leave it on the stage" whatever regrets you may have, leave them in the past, because their is no recall for life
music can be powerful and strong
music can be great
music has been around so long,
music is my fate…
one day i will be a legend
with a taste for melodious sound,
people will shiver at the mention
of william the great and profound
music is a great way to achieve glory, but i will never let it cloud my judgment, or make me a different person

A rock and a hard place
A choice to be made
2 evils to choose from
Im sorry
Be brave

A rock and a hard place...
Oppresive and Dark,
All on my own
Cast out on my mark

A rock and a hard place...
She says i love not
And it hurts me inside
Cuz Love is all i got

A rock and a hard place...
I cant please them both
My mother says no
But she begs me "dont go"...

"Dont go"...
As though i had a choice
To leave my true love now
Or to go without my voice

A rock and a hard place...
Im sorry i must...
To go without you is to go without love...

Why dont you see
How cruel this rock is to me
And how cruel this hard place
Is to be

A rock and a hard place
A choice to be made
2 evils to choose from
Im sorry
be brave
I am so sorry i dont know what to do...please forgive me, i love u so much...

Color Is Your Soul
Color isn't often defined by its being
Its defined by its number one object
Yellow can't be but a gold ring
And grey can't be but a rock yet
Grass is green, and green are trees
And visa-versa can be applied to these
But you can't draw a picture with a tree or a ring
You draw it with your soul
So if you ask what color means
To tell you that is my goal
Color is your soul
