An Ocean Unchained (Expectations)

A promise is a promise, the notion’s unchanged The motive of motion is an ocean unchained Expectations of life is a supposition I’ve blamed For fate is a design that is forever unexplained Is my potential the key or is life as random as chance? Does hope keep me moving or is it an illusionContinue reading “An Ocean Unchained (Expectations)”

Slow Down.

She told me to slow down. The best advice I may never take. My life is a race with no debate of who’s in place. I stare my future in the face as I’m running from my disgrace. But my heart is beating hard and I’m struggling to keep the pace. Too many plates inContinue reading “Slow Down.”

The Heart

Staring through the views of green, I’m seeing nothing but blurry scenes of trees and I’m thinking like what you mean? Losing your mind over this stuff you cant control, Draining you of your soul, keep your eyes on the road. Don’t look at what they’re doing, they ain’t you, You know what can do.Continue reading “The Heart”

No Lights

Sun dimming down, it’s my only source of light. Only the flame of the candle can reach my sight. No sleeping tonight, because stress has taken a toll. No air, no heat, and no energy in my home. Sixteen, in my room, listening to my mother cry, And I have no control, because I’m tooContinue reading “No Lights”

Write to Sleep

My mind’s racing, not complacent, I’m dream-chasing. I can’t sleep, my thoughts are baking, they won’t be quiet. I need silence, but the mind won’t keep my fears private. I need out of it, trying to settle with some logic, But logic and empty pockets don’t match. I feel attached to the chains that keepContinue reading “Write to Sleep”

Long Way From Home

I’m working on my future, because I’m tired of eating noodles. I could have been a shooter, but my mother kept me neutral. I could have dealt with dope, but the struggle gave me hope. Music let me cope with the troubles of being broke. Sitting in the dark praying to God for just aContinue reading “Long Way From Home”

If the Mountains Weren’t Too High

If the mountains weren’t too high, would I climb for you? If the valleys weren’t too low, would I slide for you? If the rivers weren’t too wide, would I swim for you? A wealth of knowledge within your mind, a wealth of ambition and strength in your soul, and wealth of beauty in myContinue reading “If the Mountains Weren’t Too High”

Run Away

When I stare down the barrel of my decisions, I wonder who’s the witness to the crimes that I’ve committed? Breaking this law of life and I’m just waiting for my sentence, Fired from my duties like I was playing apprentice. What’s the value of friendship when trauma collides? Shadowed in pride, depression seeping bothContinue reading “Run Away”

Do I offend?

What’s that smell? Do I offend? Does my presence hurt your senses? Sorry for not being clean, I just can’t seem to find the right soap. I keep trying different kinds that’s recommended from many friends, family, and professionals, but nothing seems to be working. I can’t shake it off. I used to think othersContinue reading “Do I offend?”
