These are a random assortment of poems about time, and where we stand in its kingdom. It’s also my first post. Here’s to self-expression in the myriad of human ways. Here I shout, laugh, ponder, and share.
Here I am me.
Remember that the world isn’t rooting for you the way you are for yourself.
Remember that even though your cup overflows with your love for others, they may not desire it.
Remember to, before you pinpoint all that is beautiful about someone else, chant all that is unique about you.
Remember a song never sung is only a forgotten whisper, and a name never said is a collection of words.
Remember that poetry is the song of your soul.
Own your name, sing your song; share your poetry.
Remember to stand for your own self, when everyone else is tired of being your courage.
Remember that those you remember, remembered themselves.
Remember to live, is not to love others, its to share your own love with the world.
I stand on the precipice of
All that I am,
Gazing into the hazy form
Of all that I could be
A cloud floats by in its fluff
Rocking the sun
Blinding us of its light
It lingers for a half-second eternity
And I am comfortable
When the curtain slowly departs
It leaves behind a pure essence
Too much to bear
Nourishing every blade of grass
I see what I saw
And this time is fresh
Fading away the many before
Seamlessly the replacement
I smile in comprehension
This is what greatness could be.
With soft lidded eyes
Tears trickle but don’t fall
Clasp the eau of yesterday
Hand held in heart
A coalescion of incandescent parts
T i m e
A difficult thing to articulate-
All those hopes and fears for a tomorrow
A day, an hour, a moment that dissipates
Its wishful thinking, to think
That we are masters of time
When time holds us by our hair
The Pendulum swings and swings–
What will another day bring?
A twinkle in time is not forever
Wink, and its gone, it seems
Clutch onto this rope that will sever
Regret is not what we think
A pool of bad decisions
That youth and blase produce
Choices are the chains of memory
Reject, repel, goodbye-Serenity
