What is…

I mean how can you explain

The value of me

To you?

This Life…

image

Seek Beauty In Every Window

Aroused by the surging pulse
My soul force strong
This life and I
Dance
Sometimes standing on each other’s toes
Embracing for an ever that will hold true
Never letting go
We pass through each season
Seeking the beauty it holds
The moments we can savour
And which ones to steal
Capturing exhales in pixels
And this life…
In my arms.

To understand is to go beyond love

Wait

Disregarded,

Reduced

Shut down

Disappointed

Let Go

Unvalued

Invisible

Untouched

Uncared for

Silent

Cold

Confused

Tired

Worn out

Weary

Scared

Uncomfortable

Too used to this madness

Not alone but very alone

Single

Complicated

Did I do all this to myself

With the touch that so many desire

Did I cause myself to stand by the rivers bank

In the midst of the flood

And expect my feet to remain on solid ground

As mud slides from beneath the concreted street

Falling away leaving devastation

Space,

Wait…

I thought space was a blessing,

A high value commodity,

Yet I stand in Space,

Not alone but alone

In awkward silence, smiles and a muddle happiness

Wondering how ‘Wait’ – one word, with so little to it,

Has meant so much.

Yes Mama,
I gave my best,
I did everything I could do,
Before, during and between.

Yet Mama,
As night covers day,
I stand alone in this place
Knowing that it simply wasnt enough,
Not then, not now and not between.

So when tomorrow comes
And its only hours away,
How will I stand in confidence,
Knowinh I may not be good enough,
Tomorrow or the days after.

My Son,
As I hear u, I smile,
The years behind me warming my heart,
Its so good to hear you and know,
That your learning what it takes,
To live,
In this place,
With these trials,
And these tests,
And stand as a man,
Both you and I can be proud of,
Let today pass,
And let tomorrow be,
For untill there is not a tomorrow to come,
Your best will be enough,
And you will be everything you need,
Before during and after,
Tomorrow today and all the days to come.

Well done.

To understand is to go beyond love

Stop Watch

Time will tell,
For it is by the tick of the clock,
That life is lost,
Not lived,
Life given costs,
Not values
Anything is possible,
Not everything is possible,
Time has taught well,
Life is to be lived,
By unconstrained,
Unrestricted,
Moments,



Moments when heart beats are electrified by the soul,
Pulse raised,
Eyes opened,
Hairs made to stand on end,
These are true signs of the times.

To understand is to go beyond love

Always

Always here
One way or another
Silent assassin
Hiding around every corner
Not willing to show ur face
Sprinkler of mischief
Like a leprechaun at a wedding
With rice grains
Yet ur hands hold no more than
Shadows of a former
Day,
Time,
Vibe,
It was, now be
Gone
Blown,
Through,
Condensed into archived files,
Used out,
End!
Yet always brought back
For no reason
Except you were
Enough already.

To understand is to go beyond love
