The time has come for me to post my final poem for 2013. As always, I want to thank everyone for visiting my site, liking my posts, and for leaving comments. I really appreciate you taking the time to do so. I wish everyone well, and may the inspiration to create continue to live within you.

Have a Successful New Year,


To be so full of love to give…
What a joyous feeling.
Something so simple, yet so complex.
Love has always left one feeling perplexed.
The matters of the heart are quite real.

To have failed and tried again for success,
Only to have it crushed once more,
But be able to move forward with newfound hope.
To be uncertain, only to gain clarity in the end.
The matters of the heart can reveal
The truth and the light.
The sunshine upon dark eyes.

With all of life’s negative forces
That enter the heart only to weaken it.
Only the strong do survive
The fuckery of emotions that fester from within.
To rise from the ashes of pain,
And refill the empptiness with love, yet again.
The ability to remain the victor is power.
Could this be what it means to have heart?

The Magic of the Night

“The Magic of the Night”

Funny how magic happens,
when nightfall engulfs the sky.
Six sophistocated souls become one,
before the sun awakens one’s eyes.

As laughter resounds of joy,
smiles spread wide and never thin.
Happiness serves the remainder of the night,
as purity of the heart resonates from within.

It’s wonderous what happens underneath the stars,
when the eyes of night falls upon each spirit.
More than six souls meeting by night.
Six souls united.
It’s the magic of the night.

I Love You Like Tomorrow

August 20, 2013

“I Love You Like Tomorrow”

I love you like tomorrow,
Which is the hope that a new day will bring.
Like the uprising of new Earth in the spring,
My eyes can see the promise that you’ll bring.
At a distance, yet within my reach,
Because tomorrow is but a few hours away.
Promises so sweet,
That my smile awaits the rising of the sun.
My mind is engulfed with hope and knowledge.
My body and hope become one.

To Pay The Price

June 16, 2013

Dedicated to T.M. and all others who have lost their lives to senseless acts of violence. Peace.

“To Pay The Price”

What price must be paid for being a man?

One limb?

One voice?

One life?

A child of the world,

Onward to becoming a man.

Stripped of his chance.

Will never know how grand he could have been.

Will never witness his rite of passage.

Will never know the man.

Lost to violent hands.

A lifeless limb.

No voice to cry out.

A life that was taken in the end.

Such an unfair price to pay for simply being a man.
