Tiny

You may be feeling very small and insignificant right now, powerless even
You matter and you have a voice
Don’t give up hope
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up…

Tiny golden jewels
Sparkle in cold winter light
Wild beach rose

Your time to blossom will come
Spring thaw around the corner

Tourist

Feeling like a tourist in my own country
Stoned by words of hostility and division
Having to check my patience while struggling
To keep my sense of retribution in check
Because if I allow the malignant cancer of hate
To take hold of my soul
Then I become the problem
And not the solution

Girls

No girls allowed
Trait taught at an tender age
Desolate playground

Tempest

All that builds must release
Tempest in a twisted sky
Change is a comin’

Atmosphere

File Nov 17, 9 38 24 PM

In smoldering ash
Nothing left but a flicker
Of a life that was

 Before the earth’s atmosphere
Became the human experiment

Love

img_5181

A time of turmoil
Humanity on the rocks
All compassion gone

Heart hardened like stone
From pain, fear, disappointment
My internal shell

Then this loving face
Acts as the water or wind
I break down and cry

I needed this light
In a time when peace alludes
Love among the hate
