A Cover and It’s Pages

A Cover and It’s Pages

They say don’t judge a bookBy its cover. But without it,How do we know whose Story it is? Our cover is our shield,And without it.We are just pages,Delicate —and weak. Preserve your cover, One tear and you’re fragile.  An author gets to createWhat their cover looks like. Let those who are invested,Open your book.Don’t explain it,No one likes a spoiled [...]

Guilty

Guilty

When you ask,I say I’m okay.If I show anything less, You cast your fears onto meYour worries about me.  A mirror will never trust me, Why? Because it sees me everyday. If it could speak, It would question why, Every time I go to it,I Fix my hairBrush my teeth,And smile. The night before,It heard me [...]

Sweet Like Candy

Sweet Like Candy

You came into my heart,Filled it with love,Joy and happiness.My heart became so full,Until there was no space Left for pain.That was until you ran awayWith it.Leaving me empty and starved. In the process of preparing A new heart,It tasted bland,And I became bitter…In the end,I almost filled it with just Pain,Regret, and hate. Then [...]

New Year. New Me?

New Year. New Me?

How many times have you said that?Each year you want to change.Look outside at the trees,You see their leaves?Gone.Now look at the grassDo you see flowers?Gone. In fall the trees are adored,By winter they are forgotten.Why?Because they become naked and exposed.They learn and take what’s neededFrom the leaves and lose them. During this time they [...]

One Wish

As I come to you,How many wishes can I make? —No one has ever asked me. Everyday I see males and femalesCome to me with a pennyBut wish for the worldEach time they throw in a penny Their wishes so heavy,It instantly sinks.If they would listen, I would tell them to wait before it falls.I would say,Think about the [...]

Happily Ever After

Happily Ever After

In a world where there’s hate,Sadness, anger, jealousy and struggle.I wonder what the world would be like,If everyone got what they wanted.What would happen if every time we wished for something,It came true.  Would the things that helpedBuild our character still exist?It wouldn’t be peace.It would be a world filled with Concealed fears masked by Joy.

Sunset Lover

Sunset Lover

In a world where there’s no peaceI rely on unknown places to heal,That brings hope and serenity. I want to be somewhere so beautifulIt brings tears to my eyes.Somewhere that can’t be improved By the imagination,Way beyond invention and fantasy. Anyplace better than envisioned, A place that paints a picture So unreal it helps me [...]

Droplets In The Sun

Droplets In The Sun

After a storm, There won’t always be a beautiful rainbow To show you there’s hope. We forget about the different thingsThat God brings after a storm. When the rain has stopped, And the sun starts to shine You look at droplets of rain,And see raindrops.I look at those raindrops and seeJewels and diamonds. As the suns settles on themMaking them glisten, they [...]
