Uncertain (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #24)   Leave a comment

We are born as uncertainties
With futures we can’t know
They’re full of possibilities
Of many ways to go

As the years keep moving forward
Our path may not be clear
If we don’t choose one to move toward
The best will disappear

So make your choice, and make it well
For when you must ascend
Good or bad, there’s no way to tell
Until you reach the end

As info downloads via ear
And language is spread by finger
As lifetimes are learned in a year
As loved ones long lost can linger

We all must not forget our past
Or who we truly are at heart
If we are all going to last
We have to remember our start

Matthew 5:5 (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #22)   Leave a comment

The meek shall not inherit the earth
If it means they are weak
It takes a great amount of strength
To turn the other cheek

Someone needs a lot of power
To choose to stay their hand
To keep their emotions in check
Their pride under command

Acts of kindness do not matter
If you couldn’t be bad
It’s when you choose to be better
That virtue will be had

Seek (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #21)   1 comment

I seek pleasure in the material
But the effort is a waste
I seek succour in the ethereal
But can’t aquire the taste

I seek refuge in the familiar
But it’s all turned to stone
I seek shelter among others
But my thoughts are alone

Out With The Old (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #20)   Leave a comment

Out with the old
In with the new
Welcome the changes
Whether good or ill
Things will keep moving
So try not to stumble
Keep up the pace
And continue the adventure

Being Sick (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #19)   Leave a comment

Coughing up a cacophony
Body feeling achy
Lungs bucking like a pony
Knees getting shaky

Head pounding like a drummer
Mind getting hazy
Being sick is a bummer
At least I can be lazy

I Cannot Change My Fellow Man (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #18)   Leave a comment

No matter how I plead or try
I cannot change my fellow man
No matter how I beg or cry
I cannot make him understand

The only thing that I can do
Is live my life the best I can
Through actions I hope to show you
How to become a better man
