Great HeroesIn the end of the story what can be said?Great Heroes2 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
In the end of the song what cannot be grieved?
Great heroes who fought together to be free
Great heroes who died together to be loyal
Struggling for years in the face of cruel men
Struggling for years in the face of madness
Remembering a time when they would laugh
Remembering a time when they could roam
Slowly as days went by they suffered one by one
Slowly as days went by they perished one by one
Great heroes who died in the name of freedom
Great heroes who died in the name of virtue
In the end of the story what can be said?
In the end of the song what cannot be grieved?

For Kayla Mason
I have always dreamed of those days.
The days where I fall,and the person,
Just grabs you and protects you.
I used to be lonely in my life,
With no one to talk to.
I was always busy with my work,
That I always get carried away.
My friends tried and tried,
To help me fill that emptiness inside.
But then,I saw you.
You were the one who filled my dreams
And my empty spirit that was taken from me returned.
It was always a destiny to meet an honorable person
That will provide me with it's laughter.
With it's tears of joy and honor.
And by that very moment,I'm not alone.
Disregarding the visage of my youth and adulthood,
I have finally met the person of my dreams.
The Angel that came upon from the Heavens,
That shined my destiny,is that same person that I'm t
In the SingularWhen you're little you don't stop to thinkIn the Singular1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
That all you know is transitory
All those you love are confined
To what will be your history
So when before that reality dawns
A shining heaven envelops your mind
A persisting home to call your own
When one day you will join your kind
But little by little that vision suffers
Holes and chips and cracks and tears
While all the while you struggle to maintain
That dream the absence of which you fear
Until it falls away completely
Leaving you just a human again
Just a speck in the universe
Aware now of your only chance
I was little and didn't stop to think
What need was there in a youth of life
But a life of youth cannot exist
And I did not find out in time
But now I do know and with this knowledge
I run this one race with all my power
Love with all my heart can muster
Accept that sometimes things get sour
But they will never cease to have lived
And I can say still that I love them
When they pass I carry them with me
Until my glorious, single shot

Is the crack of light that sneaks through
When you've boarded the windows up.
The rising courage to tear off the shutters
And the burst of love when the sun thrusts forth.
It's the rolling fields outside yonder door
And the bustle of the night
With eyes bright and frequent in the dark.
The hand on your shoulder as you gaze upon them.
It's the rose upon the thistles, the hole in the wall.
It's the message when all else is gone
It's the dawn that follows the darkest night
And the still after the storm.
It's the face that lies beside you
Each shadow engraved on your mind.
Each wrinkle new, every crease a mystery.
A story endeavoured together.
The hand that fits yours
In the same way it has done for years afore
That have touched in a thousand places
A million times before.
The moment, the look

Who art at NASA
Hallowed be thy voice.
Thy cosmos come,
Thy science be done
On Earth as it is in Space.
Show us this day the knowledge we seek,
And forgive us our superstitions
As we forgive those who blow our puny minds,
And lead us not into a demon-haunted world
But light us as candles in the dark.
For thine is the Reason,
And the Wonder,
Now and Forever.

The Earth is a very, small stage, in a vast cosmic arena.
Think of the rivers of blood, spilled by all those Generals and Emperors, so that in glory and triumph they could be momentary masters,
of a fraction,
of a dot.
Think of the endless cruelties visited,
by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel,
on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner.
How frequent their misunderstandings.
How eager they are to kill one another.
How fervent their hatreds.

I am the face in the shadows,
which no one ever sees.
I create the world's tomorrows,
but use no tongue to speak.
I'm in the minds of humankind,
to see all their desires.
My deeds to everyone are blind,
of this I'll never tire.
I am justice.
I am god.
I am you.

My sunshineMy sunshine2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As the days grow cold
And the nights dark
It's your sunshine that
Keeps me at ease
Even on the gloomiest of days
when the clouds reign the skies
And a bitter breeze brushes by
So paint me in your sunshine
for me to follow hand in hand
Remember me by your side
So I can keep my ray of sunshine
