Of Dreams and Lives

Individuals
Different eyes
Different faces
Different voices
Different souls
Different dreams
One life
One world
One people
One heart
One race
All

Cup of Victory

Victory comes not
To those who merely want it
But those who earn it

Say Nothing

Silence unspoken
Wiser would have been
In place of biased judgement
Knowledge would ascend

Empty

Empty

Promises

Threats

Oaths

Sermons

Lectures

Vows

Selves

Without Meaning

Useless

Damaging

Crippling

Scarring

Depressing

Cynical

Write not

Speak not

Shout not

Love not

Without sincerity

Without Meaning

Rise and Shudder

Hot steam rises from a running shower
Beds unmade and empty
Coffee brews while toast pops up
Alarm clocks buzz and beep
Cars sit idle in the garage
Nobody’s home

Average Ordinary Everyday Poem

Let the record show
Despite the obvious
Satire implied
This is in fact
Not an ordinary rhyme
But mundane turns
Spectacular through new lens
The eye candy of simplicity
Juxtaposed with ironic
Predictable complexity
That often boredom births
Or perhaps vice versa

Half-decade

It’s been a blast
So fun so fast
The time has flown
I hadn’t known
How far I’d reach
With unspoken speech
And baring my soul
But now the whole
Is a continuing work
Of artistic quirk
So now to more
A hundred times four
Till decade’s past
And at last
I reach my goal
The poet’s bowl
A thousand fantastic titles
