Just random thoughts.

Incoherent noise.

unfiltered   dreams.

Meaningless themes.

Dashed hopes.

What does it all mean?


Walking along journey with no end in sight.


Trying to do right when tempted with wrong.


Pushing for extra strength reserves but it’s all gone.

Testing 2

Found your limit long ago but still moving ahead.


Remaining calm when you see nothing but red.

Testing  (is thing on?)

Holding on and refusing to give in

Testing. testing testing

Will not stop until you win….

This was a test.

You’ve just been testested and you passed.

Your more than strong you are built to last.

You are the future and have transcended the past.

This was test. Repeat. This was only a test 

There will be more.
Keep your heart and you will pass them all that’s for sure.

Forgive me(note to self)

Forgive me  for treating you so wrong.

Forgive me for draining your spirit and not hearing your song.

Forgive me for not  up lifting you and making you feel down.

Forgive me for not supporting your dreams.

Forgive  me for being so harsh/ so mean/ so crass.

Forgive me for not quieting your doubts and reminding you to laugh.

Forgive me for not feeling your pain.

Forgive me for not seeing your side of things.

Forgive my finger pointing,  overthinking, and blame.

Forgive me please . forgive me for causing  you so much pain and dourest .

I can’t turn back the clock now.

What’s done is done. What’s said has been said

I can not go another day without you forgiving me.

Please do it so I may rest my head.

Is that right?

So you’re an expert on me.

You have me all figgggured out.

You know me oh so well.

Well what do you really know?

Please share. Please tell

You know what I’m thinking at all times?

You know my struggle.

You know what I’ve been through.

I bet you think this poem is about you.

You’re always right about me aren’t you?

Well I can tell you something you didn’t know.

Something you over looked in you notes.

You miss calculated.

You missed the boat.

Here’s the difference between me and you.

I’m focused on my own affairs.

How about you?

See while you were studying my movements.. I was busy moving ahead.

Here’s the biggest difference between me and you

You prefer to judge and assume.

I prefer to live and presume.

So the next time you think you got my number look down and check the ticket twice.

Because my friend when it comes down to figuring out me. Right is something you’ll never be.

Second Sight.

I’m reflecting in the pools of my soul.

Gauging the depth of my breath.

Testing the temperature before I make that plunge.

I’m observing and soaking knowledge like a sponge.

What is now shrouded in the cloak of darkness will soon be reviled with the presence of light.

The truth is calling out to me in the middle of the night.

My enemies and deterrents are great. Yet my worry is scant.

I’m slaying sorrow and doing away with can’t.

Standing fast and poised.

Filtering out distraction and destroying noise.

Taking up arms and putting away my toys.

My vision is razor sharp and cuts like a knife.

Now living my truth while evading life’s plight.

I’m polished now and never will be taken.

My intensity was muted. My thoughts clouded and polluted.

I’m polished now. Aware and never again will be taken.

I was a sleeping giant. Now I have been

Fresh take

I’m taking it all in.

Seeing old sites through fresh eyes.

I have a new foot hold on an old trail.

A fresh invigorating breeze going through my old worn sail.

My heart is softening.

The brittle malice is crumbling.

Confusion now stands fast and my soul has now ceased wandering.

I’ve felt glory but knew not of victory.

Peace was rumor.

And joy a mystery.

Pain is now a memory.

Suffering has no definition.

Torment now deserves no mention.

Serenity and calm deafen scorn.

I’m clean.

I’m whole.

I’m revamped with a new glee.

I am new version of an old me.
