Drop the beat, unleash the heat, Spy Vs Spy, there’s no retreat, time to battle and rattle the cage of your frame of mind, because it’s been hanging crooked for a while. Laissez faire isn’t going to work anymore, there’s a war going on and it’s real and existential, for it’s happening from the inside […]

Stand up, get up, this is no time for lying down Brush it off and get up off the ground Find your inner reserve, or whatever you need to proceed Drive, you know what that is don’t you? You gonna be a victim all of your life? Use what you’ve got; you have a better […]

A thousand words or a picture’s lure?

If it takes a thousand words…to equal a picture’s lure I’m still going to try and paint with syllables and verbs And challenge your brain’s synapses right out of the gate Challenging the inclination towards a path of least resistance With a harrowing tale conveyed with riddle and rhyme persistence And if I must hint […]

If words could bleed, then ‘these words’ would lead, and leave an indelible mark on the reader’s psyche, for make no mistake, you’ve stumbled upon a reverse prison break, I’ve stormed the ‘asylum’ in order to set free the mindset, that bipolar should be some sort confinement into a life of upsetting regrets. I’ve had […]

Walk with me and take note of my solemn path Let me tell you how time can show both kindness and wrath Were you to have reached the wondrous peaks I once reached You would wonder how I can settle for the everyday cobbled road Were you to have plummeted to the depths of valleys […]

So it goes, and so we sow, and so we reap from what we’ve sown, and taste the sweet or bitter fruits that have or will soon grow.  The stream of consciousness and it’s manifestation in words, seems to be gushing in hard to measure flows. I seem to have become an observer of the […]

Rushing to the fore, and knocking on the door, is the unbridled enthusiasm I’d left forlorn And I cannot disown the sadness that the world wants me to ignore And truth be told, it is the ignition that drives me to settle the score And bridge the gap between those with little and those with […]

In store for your soul…

Do the good days drown out the bad? Or do they remind us of what we could have had? If we didn’t fall from Heaven and have to traverse this land There is much suffering here in this place we call our home But isn’t that a sign that our soul doesn’t belong in this […]

This is a continuation of what came before And a prelude to what the author has in store If he’s given a tomorrow to add to today And make tangible the dreams from yesterday It’s time to unwrap the present and make it take a stand For this is no time for the deliberations of […]
