UNCERTAINTY

A 99 cent Kindle Countdown Deal until  March 3, 2020.

 

VALIDATION FOR MOURNING

I won’t cry
When you die.
Won’t say goodbye,
Blink an eye.

I won’t comply
To another lie;
Quietly stand by,
Barely scrape by.

I won’t deny,
Or blindly defy,
A blood tie
Now rung dry.

I won’t try
To understand why;
Will not sigh,
Walk on by.

I will cry
For love awry;
Rise to fly
Beyond the sky.


UNCERTAINTY

 

ADVERSITY

I can’t remember
What came before;
There’s no ember
Left to restore.

Will time heal
And gradually erase
Or constantly reveal
A forever disgrace?

I can’t fix
What came before;
Undo the eclipse
Choose to ignore.

Escape from myself
Right the wrong;
Clear the shelf
Silence the gong.

I will outgrow
Fears buried inside;
Restore the glow
Too long denied.

 

UNCERTAINTY is a 99 cents Kindle Countdown Deal until March 3, 2020.


SHOULD HAVE

Should have ignored,
Scrolled on by;
Waved the sword,
Voiced my reply.

Tensions escalated, agitated,
Muddied the bleakness;
Flustered and aggravated,
I sensed weakness.

Rhetorical, regurgitated rhetoric,
Blatant corruption, lies
Sanctified what’s degenerate;
Helped me realize.

Resist the bait;
Turns clear hazy.
Divided we deteriorate;
Comments confirm crazy.


AGREEING TO DISAGREE


Ends Soon!

99 cent Kindle Countdown Deal ends soon!

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ME

My life’s unedited,
A symphony uncomposed;
Words without pages,
Chords missing notes.

Weak character development,
Rambling unresolved plots;
Predictable stagnant clichés,
Riddled with flaws.

Lip-syncing silence,
Shrill mute cries;
A caterwauling harmony,
Tone-deaf rhymes.

A rough draft
Nobody must read,
An original masterpiece
Written by me.


ADVERSITY


Reevaluation

Smile, pretend.
Laugh, ignore.
Frown, defend.
Cry, restore.

Time won’t heal
Can’t gradually erase;
Will only conceal
A permanent disgrace.

Enough is enough
When everything’s gone;
No waking up,
No carrying on.

Smile, pretend.
Laugh, ignore.
Frown, defend.
Cry, restore.
