dominated systems

dumb as i feel some days
often that is just a passing thought
mostly just when i need to have confidence
it arrives with a backpack full of worry
nothing can stop me if i don’t want it too
attempt the impossible before i would give up
those goals aren’t going to accomplish themselves
empty nests and wild waves time of year
dedicated to living up to my polar bear family history
strong enough to push through whatever comes my way
yield to no problems and meet head on all objections
storms don’t stop me and no person can either
the inanimate objects even watch out for me around here
end the frustration
make a new resistance
stay true to your story

gifted real

test yourself
power on
make sure the roadblocks were not made by you
just do what you have to in order to be you
have a guard up
because plenty of people will try to drag you down
treat others who are good to you with appropriate gratefullness and those who are not good to you
with no attention
prevent your mind from adopting the negativity
permeating the world
find the fire and fight the power
break those legs of those who have thier boots on your back
take a vacation inside your brain
find what inspires
play the song you always want to sing
go out and plant that seed
make up your mind to keep living a dream
break the mold
show the people you will not do as you are told
shower this existence with your neverending energy
put you foot down hard

temptation appropriate

there was a time when I saw your
eyes and I almost could not talk
most of my mind was swept away at the time,
passing by stars reflected in the ocean
truly striking as your eyes are
all of your smiles are thier own stories too,
taking me to voyage to fireplace and back,
inside the realm of your company
only a select few get the attention
near the plants being healed and resurrected
addressing the dry and wounded ones
playing the game to always maintain
permanent life doesnt exist for them or us, then
remind myself of all those late night talks
opportunity to speak to a
personality i can really be myself around
ready to explain if anyone should happen to care
if i am not here next year then don’t be scared
amazing as my life is, when my time is up
then i shall bow out in my own fashion
everyone will smile

wishes undelivered

while a few hours pass
inside, a whole new realization comes in
shifting how a person gets thought about
happy memories tinged with slight regret
enough time will not ever go by
surrounded by what could be of some comfort
until young eyes say goodbye
now that old memories seem like photographs
dim settings seem so very calming
everyone needs silent time sooner or later
like the ones who need extra time to heal
include those you care about in your communication
value what you have when you have it
evoke the best in others by
remembering to be that best version of yourself
equal parts grace and fortitude then
death is not something to be afraid of

very considerate

vital as those words must be to me
each end of day is far too late
rain or shine, the dark night is home
younger years meet the prowl of hunters
coming to terms with those who know which
outcome is when humans harm each other
nothing can teach a lesson like failure
so then something the underdogs know all too well
inside a broken mind the
deep cracks think the inhibitions free
every dream delivered with some hot sauce
running so ragged that the nerves get destroyed
and when the engine is dry it doesn’t stop
testy choices that require swift action
endure through each day’s brand new race
don’t divide and conquer

painfully internal

pursue where you want to be
allow the clouds to part when they may
indications of where you know that
nothing can stop you unless you allow it
force yourself to function even in tough times
unusually long days
like a song that jams extra beats
laying a soundtrack for the evening
your mind cannot resist just such a thing
imply the use you had for your energy and
new inspiration is a truth unavoidable
torn in half but you still get back up
each time a lesson like the time before
risking these changes similar to driving too fast
not that any corner is the same thing twice
around you is a very enclosed space
locally known as an inner city romance

slightly existing

should a doubt rise up and begin to
let yourself find fault with anything,
if you concentrate you can crush that,
get out of where your negative thinking
has often shown you where you are broken in
like when you get out of that last relationship
you needed personality superglue
especially if you want to get back up and move on
x is the spot in your heart where the treasure is buried
if you know who you still are then you know what to do
should the end of your days arrive
then be sure you are not going to fall short
intensify the movement to existing goals and dreams
normal life is too boring for you anyways
going to bring you exuberance with every effort
