Settle with awesome
Do better than others
Without doing only that
Listen to everyone
But make your own path
Those who do not try to win
Have already lost
In the game of life

Ten fingers, ten toes, ears, eyes, mouth, and nose,
If we held hands could I intwine, My fingers in the spaces between Yours and mine, And if I clung to You would I hear, A beating heart beneath Your chest against my ear,
And even if there's no heart in Your chest, I know that Your love's above the rest, And I will not rest,
Because You have lit me up like a wildfire,
Resurrected me from death to holy desires,
I am more alive than a pounding pulse,
My beat is off the charts, my heart may explode,
Every fiber of my being electrified,
My soul is finally breathing, my eyes open wide,
"It's alive!" they cry, "It's alive!"
He says Your ran from me, And just like everyone else, You just keep running,
But I know better, I read Your letter,
I know that I'm still in flesh, But You have raised me up; I'm dead to death, I'm dead to sin, corruption can fight but it won't win,
And even if I never see Your face, Until I stand before Your

"The Perfect Stallion" by the Cutie Mark Crusaders
(Apple Bloom, Scootaloo, and Sweetie Belle),
from Episode #43: "Hearts and Hooves Day"
Cheerilee is sweet and kind,
she's the best teacher we could hope for.
The perfect stallion you and I must find.
One to really make her heart so-o-oar.
this one's too young,
this one's too old.
He clearly has a terrible cold.
This guy's too silly.
He's way too uptight.
Well nothing's wrong with
this one. He seems alright.
How 'bout this one?
He's much too flashy.
He might do!
[Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle]
If he weren't so splashy!
Too strangely obsessed
with tubs of jelly.
I don't think that we're mistaken,
it seems all the good ones are taken.
I really feel that at this
UntitledIf only i could bleed twice as much in half the time,Untitled14 hours ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I'd have a chance to make you mine;
I'd have a shot and have a go,
What we're both missing none can know.
If only i could bleed half as much in twice the time,
I'd beat the odds to see us fine,
What fine is, us both, will know,
To not have to see one go.
Yes, I'm done and yes i know
The chances are slim as they go,
Why would I think you won't say no?
Why would I think? You won't say no.
Bleeding once more for recreation,
Twice as much to cease frustration,
Thrice as much to taste damnation,
Four, you undone my whole creation.

be who you are looking for
listen to your heart
unfold into light
we are all here to greet you
when you are ready
exhaling the past
i am breathing into light
reborn as myself
i am light dancing
through spaces between each cell
i am surrender
in this timeless space
i find you within my heart
where you've always been

in this isle of ill fated lovers
kindled from the spark of creation,
here it burns and ravages.
The wine flows,
from pitcher to goblet to lips,
but no one is drinking.
Only the invited may come.
The guests never wishes to leave,
the host known, but never seen.

Marble stone, cut and broken by times grim passing
With anonymous voice, reminding
... Courage is needed here.
We knelt by the grave
With only uncertain honour, to protect us from
The fear and love for, life and it's living;
And we wept our tears fallen
Once more to earth's hunger.
The grass is greener here
- the tree's far stronger -
And the echoes of the dead,
Can just barely be heard.
Honour my friend
And I will return,
So that we may tend to the garden together again.

Leading to a tunnel where you could walk or take a stand.
You've gone this far but the choice is yours
To relax or to finish more chores.
It's very peaceful up here,
Secrets of the mountain in serenity.
Admiring eyes are the sharp lenses of the sightseer
But are you sure you only want these pictures in your memory?

I remember when you got a Big Kids Meal instead of a Happy Meal for the first time, and thought you were the cool kid on the block.
I remember when I was always falling off my bike and scraping my knee, and my neighbor would always put a big bandage on it and send me home, then the next day I would try again and it happened all over again. I bet she spent twenty dollars on just my right knee.
I remember how excited I was to get a shiny new Playstation 2 for my tenth birthday, and my dad and I would play Need for Speed: Most Wanted in turns. Yeah, I bet he remembers those times whenever I play COD or Just Cause 2 later in life.
Good times, good times.
The Path of lonelinessThe Path of loneliness (Spirit of Love)The Path of loneliness5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of small children all around
An adult now and then
Playing with other kids
One by one they leave
Lonely feelings creep in
Pushing happiness into a corner
As time goes on
The loneliness gets too much
Cuts the skin
Some of the pain leaves
As the red drops
I’m taken to a white room
Talking to an adult
About the pain
The loneliness still stayed
Unable to pass
Now I was put in a group
Others talking about the pain
I closed myself off
A wall put up
There comes a light
A young man
One with a sweet smile
And has a kind soul
Over time he broke through
Changing my heart
Showing me the light
Of the love of Christ
Showing me how to love
Even the worst
Which isn’t natural
One day he is gone
Giving his life for mine
To overwhelm me
The loneliness looms
The shiny knife
In my hand
I looked at the blade
I see him in it
Even though the pain
I know this isn’t the wa

All your doubts and fears
And if you look in my cold eyes
In time you'll find
You will understand the reason I'm here
In time all things pass away
But know you will back me someday
To live once more
Freed from previous chains
Feeling lighter than ever before
Moving with the clouds
As for me
My days are numbered
I count every second
One by one
Feeling the notches on the gun at my head
I've tried to outrun my demons
But my feet tire against the hands of time
Though I may be back one day
To meet you in clouds
And in time
We may return someday

Falling from high up in the heavens above.
The light is slowly draining,
Replaced by a hellish blood red.
Evil possesses the abolished star,
Banished from the highest reaches of the universe.
As it plummets, a strong revenge forms,
The lust to defy all things pure.
The star forms a demonic wish.
The wish to sin...

As my hero Brenda Ueland said, we artists are all trying to describe beauty, to then share it
And what about life?
Is life the same as beauty? The great poets strive, necks bulging with nerves
to take hold of that very

I was adrift on the seaI was adrift on the seaI was adrift on the sea5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tossed back and forth
By the wind and rain
Not hearing your voice
Not feeling your warmth
As it got worse
I became lost
Not sure which way to go
Trying to find my way back
Though still being pushed forward
There was little rest and comfort
I tried to cling to the knowledge
That You are there
I had the head knowledge
That You were there
But in my heart
I let the storm win
Then one day
I felt Your warmth
It was a surprise
But one of great welcome
That my prayer finally reached
Through and pierced my heart
Letting You in
You waited patiently
Continually being there
I pushed You away
Staying in my pity
Wanting to get out
But not strong enough
I gave in
Not to pity
But to You
I gave in to You
Letting You shelter me
From the storm
Taking my burdens
And overwhelming stress
With peace and love
Now able to relax
And to be able to
Show Your light to others
Being a mirror
Perhaps showing Your light
Hopeless(poem)Each time we meet our painful end,Hopeless(poem)3 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
A part of me dies inside,
Each time everything fades to black,
Hope fades with it,
What has happened to hope,
What happened to you,
That demon is not you,
Inside you still exist,
I'm sorry that I cannot help you,
Hope will die soon enough,
Our mission is hopeless.
