Shame On Us

Untitled

the greatest stories
ever told are the deceptions
given in bland kisses
by the wretched liars

there’s no care
there’s no real love
there’s just an agenda
theirs comes first

what’s at stake
is what they get from you
furthering their goals
gets them one step closer

what’s at stake
is what you give them
being taken for granted
loses you your soul

Actions Of A Stranger

According to you, all that’s missing is a cape.
But your contribution is the bare minimum.
Turmoil abounds, and where are you?
You need a signal in the sky to see what’s
right there in front of you?

Emotional maintenance means nothing to you.
So many opportunities for growth missed or ignored.
My needs are on stand-by, yours apparently met.
And you’re still smiling and laughing while
it’s chilly in here. You never bring a coat.

So why are you acting like you’re a hero?

Silhouette

We look outward to understand ourselves,
throwing questions to the stars.

Our youth is filled with awe and wonder.
Our years provide some answers.

We are just a silhouette of the skies,
or mirror of what already was before us.

We are life.
We go on and on and on…
