“Human”

Maybe
the universe is testing me.

Maybe
that’s why I got thrown the promotion
to fix
the unfixable problems.

Maybe
that’s why I fell in love and then out
to see
my unseeable habits.

Maybe
that’s why my words got rejected again and again
to write
what I had never written before.

I just wish
it didn’t have to happen
all
at
once.

I
am
no
hero.

I am just human.

“The World”

There is so much more
than the eye can see.
There is so much more
that we can be.

Oceans wait
where the land runs dry.
Steel and stone bridges
are the connecting tie.

Volcanoes sleep
in old worlds lost.
On the highest mountains
is freezing white frost.

Jungles made
of concrete and smoke.
Lush green valleys
wearing mist like a cloak.

People too of course
that are different from us.
But friendships are found
in the similarities we discuss.

There is so much more
than the eye can see.
There is so much more
that we can be.

And I
want to live it all.

“The Leader”


Once a shadow,
and now the light.
Looking to an empty sky
and being the only kite.

Before, holding the heat
of the Earth’s might.
Now the ocean
pulls me down, out of spite.

Not one of them
in their circle so tight.
Not one of you
though I was, in hindsight.

Seeming like a lamb,
small and polite.
But truly a lion
with a deathly bite.

I know what’s wrong
and what is right.
But honestly,
I never wanted to fight.

An outside leader
who shines so bright
but her lonely soul
is shrouded in the night.

“Lady Luck”

Lady Luck
is an elusive beauty.

Those
who seek her
will search and never find
that ruffled red dress,
bright beguiling smile
and wise witty banter.

But those
who work towards their own abundance
will find her a constant companion
walking down the path next to them
pushing them farther
than they ever thought possible.

“Mrs. Hyde”

Light eyes,
bouncy hair,
a smile
with no care.

Piercing gaze,
tight bun,
a smirk
that looks like fun.

Sweatshirt,
dark jeans,
blue socks,
stars on the seams.

Black blazer,
red blouse,
pumps starting fires
to be doused.

The fear
is high in your eyes.
Mistaking your impression
for her guise.

Well,
surprise.
