Rebirth

A blank slate to which I cannot relate

Settle me down and take away my old crown

Crush it to dust and mound it anew

Even swap out my old shoes 

My crushing heart beats the dust on it’s surface 

My blood struggles to flow through it’s clogged veins 

My eyes are glossed over twice and cannot see past the clouds and the rain 
Make me anew and burn this body down 

Rise me up from the ashes and anoint me a new crown 

Adorn me a robe made of silver and gold 

Impeccable taste 

Adorn me with Your good grace 

Polish my mind and shine my heart 

Drop hot coals on my eyes and set them ablaze 

Let Your fire burn in them with intensity 

Put Your healing power in my palms and whisper Your wisdom in my ear

Touch my lips 

Nothing will be better than this…

Suit and tie

With names for strange things 

You and me are not the same 

The obvious we blame 

We stay playing the game 

Not knowing if anything will be the same 

Cars, bars and shooting stars 

Did you miss it or me 

Blinded your sights 

Seeing things that should not be shown 

And you should have known 

That your secret would soon be known that no one has known 

A badly plastered name 

Attached with a bad fame 

No dignity or divinity 

The divine said it was time 

Your rope ran out 

Caught in between your one and fours

I couldn’t take it anymore 

Jump to your freedom 

With your neck caught in your tie 

Wear your suit to your grave…

Two worlds

White wash blows into the wind of the peak of a roaring surf 

Bellows down below in breathtaking glory

Meet the wind at the ocean top and crashes at the surface of the ocean low

Quiet ambience meets a busy flux in the parallels of two worlds 

Inhabitance of what’s under the surface and what’s among the light of the shore creates a distance of mystery and allure 

Undisturbed reins that you cannot grasp onto 

Floats into the vast emptiness of a unrestrained world…

It was in…

It was my desperation, the anguish in my teary voice 

The pain struck me weak and left me hollow inside 

It was my weakness that left me on my knees 

It was in my shame that I covered my face, I battled with disgrace

It was in my ignorance and confusion that left me speechless and baffled 

It was my personal dishonor that left me isolated 

It was in my darkest hour that I saw the light 

It was how brightly it shone that made me rise 

Up to my feet even though I felt too weak

It was in my weary spirit that I gave in and released the sin…

Cloudy skies 

Pink clouds above etches the sky Such beauty to the eye

Parallel the dark clouds that float above in my mind 

That brings tears to my eyes 

How to soak it in externally and mesh it internally? 

Please don’t let it rain on this sunshine 

Cast the demons from my mind 

Make them disappear from my presence 

Adorn me a present with a bow in the sky

Milky Way on high as I light it up to float in the skies 

Can I touch what I can’t reach and bring it back down with me?

Soak in the disappearing sun 

Gather it all in fun

Take a bite sized peak and swallow it in me 

Defrost the windows of my eyes and dry them in the heat 

What a rough week and truly it all has left me weak

Tragic songs from my heart 

How can I turn it into a piece of art? 

Where do I need to start? 

How can I sleep so silently in peace? 

I’m tired of getting up at night because I cannot sleep

I cannot count sheep if I cannot see past these dark clouds that engulf me

Is it a ray I see? 

Breaking past the clouds in my boundaries? 

A beacon of light and hope 

Can I now see the city past the smoke? 

Have the clouds run away from this bright ray? 

Have my prayers been answered? 

I dance to a new norm

I think I’ve cleared the storm

I have to have it all or none at all

What’s left to lose?

Nothing but a solo traveler on the move…
