A poem on opinionated arrogance

Every time you wake up
Before you put on your make up
Drink your coffee and shut up
Open your ears and give up

Your thoughts
Your opinions
Your means
Your believings

Open up to someone else’s singing

A new sensation
Full of interpretation
No need for celebrations
Just an intentional contemplation

Some things may hit home
Other may just be let go
But to never see
Is to live life ignorantly

In that case
You’ll just need a length
Rope and wood in a solid place
Until you can no longer feel your face

Then you arrogance will finally lose the race



A poem on the struggle to begin

A new car
A white bandana and a new start

It may sound extra hard
That’s only true in the midnight gloom

When the warmth of the Sun
Hides from your wayard soul

Head turning in search of the light
An indefinite maze etched with fright

Around the corner
Deep under the covers
In a building turned to rubble
Rests the core of your troubles


A renovation is needed
An extrapolation of being
Released from the dark
Set forth towards the Northern Star

Attention paid in earnest
Present amidst the lights of the mirror
Growth through awareness
