Heart on The Horizon

Heart on The Horizon

The way you make me really feel
Is nothing short of amazing
Like the sun coming over the earth
My emotions inside are blazing
Day in and out I learn so much
I just can’t stay away
In the midst of the coming storm
My troubles fade away
My heart has been the subject
Of such wear and tear
I know my fears are fleeting
Because you will always be there
This horizon isn’t black or white
Its somewhere in between
Slowly painting this picture together
To make a wonderful scene
I’ll let my heart determine
If this is the right decision to make
And let time eventually decide
Whether I’ll bend or break

Inquisitively Inclined

Inquisitively Inclined

Curiosity has been a part of me
Since then when I live in distant lands
I had persistence to guide my voice
And a magnifying glass in both my hands
Anxious to escape the little I knew
I took a long trip over seas
To a place where being curious
Was a major key and necessity
I took the world with hand ready
To receive the many gifts it held
No force could stop my knowledge
Even if it was when I failed
Curiosity to me was really a gift
That I held very close to my soul
I read the books of life around me
For the completion of each my goal
I’ve had many mysteries to solve
And each one its very own case
I’ve climbed heights to close them all
So I don’t meet the look of disgrace
When I at last had a new detective
My traits to follow just the same
I’d teach my ways of investigation
In this hit or miss trial game
Always on the move for something new
Many new locks for my mind to crack
When a new unknown appears
My insight prepares and goes to attack
As long as the world around me
From day to day goes to change
Nothing I grab or see is old and grey
All answers around me are strange

In The Still of Winter

In The Still of Winter

I spent my summers winding down
And my autumns looking back
But when the cold of winter hits
I see my past go on attack
Those barren fields of gray
Somehow look me in the face
And the seasons that flew like birds
Stop still and dwell on my disgrace
I’ve weathered several tornadoes
I’ve almost drowned in playful seas
But this winter changed my outlook
Made my mind and heart just freeze
This winter already twice as hard
I cry tears of loss this day
For this was the very season
When my father had passed away
This feeling of loss had changed me
My skies had went from blue to gray
Leadened clouds of regret and sadness
Matched the feeling of disarray
As time passed I wondered
That this mood didn’t suit me well
I was never one to falter
I was never one to fail
This season held so much joy
So I had to try and realize
That my dad passing wasn’t tragic
I had to say my last goodbyes
With my past now tucked away
And my skies a shade of blue
Spring could come in wondrous splendor
I could see the leaves slight hue
A time of rebirth was at my disposal
I could finally go and erase
The sadness that lay inside my heart
For my smile this sign would erase
So as the seasons make their rounds
I will never forget but remember
The one I lost that faithful day
In the beauty that’s known as winter

Forced Entry

Forced Entry

I built my house in such a way
That it could never cause me sin
I’ve denied the ones who’ve stood at my door
I couldn’t let just anyone in
My home was a place of serenity
With my family as my guard
I didn’t expect the windows to shatter
And get hit with every shard
They broke in when my house was new
When innocence was in my mind
I found out it was my own security
I had been left confused and blind
They stole my sense of meaning
They took away my sacred heart
This being my sense of direction
I felt my trust had ripped apart
My house had been invaded
Gone my items from this place
Time could recover my broken façade
But never the betrayal felt and disgrace
I repaired the broken windows
I replaced the tattered sheets
I couldn’t repair the security
I didn’t want another repeat
The ones that betrayed my trust
Now locked away behind iron bars
They left me with painful memories
Insecurities and lasting scars
My house today is now restored
Not a problem to be seen
I’m weary of any stranger
Whose age is above eighteen
I’ll protect my home with locks
That only the ones I love can break
As long as the ones who sinned exist
I will forever stay awake

Flowers Need Sunlight Too

Flowers Need Sunlight Too

For many years I’ve had sunlight
Shine down on my face
Water to replenish my faith
When weather was suvh a disgrace
Slow to show my gentle petals
To a world that couldn’t care
I’ve planted my thoughts and dreams
So at least I could have a prayer
One petal fell that faithful day
When the soil ‘round me dried
I lost the faith I always had
My life source finally died
The sun that gave my life purpose
Vanished for clouds took its place
I felt no light could ever revive
The dreams held in this place
Rain fell softly on the ground
I quickly took in all I could
The dreams I planted came to life
The pure, right and good
The love the soil had for me
Was always there in the ground
It took the faith I buried away
To make my foundation sound
As the sun kissed my face
And nature rejoiced with glee
I remembered all the times spent
With other flowers near the sea
With the sunlight shining bright
And loving roots to hold me dear
The support felt from the soil beneath
Will forever hold me near

Endurance is Power

Endurance is Power

Living in a winter wonder land
Has been such fun for me
Viewing frozen lands and plains
Dreaming of pure iced seas
With the glamour comes the trial
Like nights when snowstorms
Would hit my heart dead center
Only courage to keep me warm
Ever ruthless this force of nature
Yet I keep on course for my will
I only have one choice in mind
I choose not to break that deal
Snow has had it simple pleasures
Snow has had its downfalls too
Yet I fight the snowstorms daily
For it my goals I must pursue
I know for a fact it’s made me stronger
Each storm I’ve had to face
Each trial wares away my fear
Until there is nothing to erase
Endurance is what it will take
To love this land of pure ice
Nothing in this world compares
The infinite beauty does suffice
Now the storms don’t faze me
Its all just part of time
I’ve learned that like all things
Endurance isn’t a crime
Now I’m enjoying the snow
For all of its gentle purity
So when the next snowstorm hits
I won’t give in to its plea

Controlling the Spiral

Controlling the Spiral

I was always a driven person
Which is why I wanted to fly
Given I had the strength and ability
To live my life in the sky
My dad had always taught me
That failure is very dark storm
To avoid the clouds that always thunder
To stay in perfect form
One faithful day I received news
That broke the bond I had made
Like that the leadened clouds moved in
For no one would come to my aide
In pain and panic I took a nosedive
In the stable plane that was my life
She was the very wind beneath my wings
I had lost my faith, plans, and wife
In dizzy spiral I crash landed
At the bottom of my regrets and mistakes
I no longer could see the future I had
For ground beneath rattled and quaked
My son the last of my fire
Had inspired me to take to the skies
I loved this boy with all my heart
He was a man, helpful and wise
Now I peacefully travel the tailwinds
With a new wind beneath my wings
For I have faith in what life holds
What today and tomorrow will bring

Check Inside, Not the Cover

Check Inside, Not the Cover

Reading for me’s been a hobby
That I’ve found to be a real treat
Books come in all shapes and sizes
Finding one book is no real feat
I’ve found that certain pages
Of certain books are ripped apart
No reason to deny it reading
No this trend should ever start
I’ve seen books with tattered pages
I’ve seen books that have no face
Every book has right to viewing
Every book has its right place
Not one book have I denied
Since I’ve been reading all my life
People bring up stupid problems
And create restraints called strife
Books will always be my interest
For they always contain a tale
All books hold inside a secret
No matter how dreary or pale
For the world is just a library
Where all books sit and wait
They wait for a person to visit
For the reader decides their fate
I hope that all the books I’ve read
Can understand and finally see
That as long as memories divide
The library card will always be free

Change after the Storm

Change after the Storm

Life was just a care in the world
When the sun was shining bright
The ground beneath me held me up
I could never pick a fight
I had the power to do things
They were fun things just for me
Yet I didn’t notice the clouds
That would gather over the sea
The storms moved in so fast
It felt like I was blind
This storm so unexpected
Caused me to leave several things behind
I braced myself for impacting blows
I thought all would be at bay
Yet the hurricane that hit my life
Left my mind in disarray
The storm was through, eyes open
Nothing was wrong with me
Did that storm mean something more
Had that storm set me free
I had to change my game plan
That storm left me anew
If you thought all storms were bad
Just look at mine, that one was true

Carve My Own Path

Carve My Own Path

I’m just like the river that ebbs and flows
With the turns that life throws at me
Each sink in the water is reality
In the end my final place is the sea
This journey has had its painful regrets
Like the times I’ve gone astray
It’s taken my strength deep inside
To finish each enduring day
I’ve taken the scenic route sometimes
And have traveled over valleys deep
I find myself contained in such a lake
When at last I go to sleep
With time I find that my journey
Is in fact a small part of my life
Knowing when the clouds gather round
Rapids bring up blockades and strife
With the sun up above I’m an enduring river
With the moon switching places I know
Know no weather can hinder my progress
Let it be rain, wind, haze, or snow
I carve my own path by being a force
I keep my mind clear to stay on the course
No thing can stop my water flowing deep
I pray for the best when at last I sleep

As I float in with the Breeze

As I float in with the Breeze

I’ve had my summer days
Where I would just soak up the sun
I’d bask in rays just set ablaze
Before the day was done
I’ve had my nights where the moon
Would shine for all to view
I’d let in light that was produced
So my life could shine too
I’ve taken for granted my ability
To move when ever I please
I wonder the earth’s radiance
As I float in with the breeze
No force can stop me I tell myself
As long as the winds at my back
I play my song for all to hear
Before winter skies go black
As with falls presence the leaves drop
Off of all the seed grown trees
And I sweep them up into the air
As I float in with the breeze
My stories short I’ll tell you
Not all is as it seems
I’ve had moments set for stage
And rainy days for all my dreams
I’ve traveled the world many times
And on each journey have learned one thing
That nature can weather any turbulence
With the dawn and comfort of spring
I’ll take my peace in waves
As I take haven among the seas
And remember the seasons well spent
As I float in with the breeze

Among City Streets

Among City Streets

The game of life was a harsh reality
That I somehow had to face
In the city I lived my life
With my mothers warm embrace
Down on my luck I did my best
My mother a symbol of peace
When she died my heart fell apart
My respect for the world had ceased
It wasn’t fair the condition I lived
On the streets where people would stare
Stare at the face of a girl lost in love
Lost in shadows and despair
Afraid and alone I raised myself
In a way that seemed right to me
Knowing life in the city wasn’t simple
I’d find the strength to break free
As time passed my luck would change
From rags to riches you might say
But I found a way to support myself
And have peace at the end of the day
All going well I found a partner
That I’d share thoughts with for life
Yet that bond weakened just the same
I’d endure the pain known as strife
Once again all alone with a beautiful child
I learned to endure in the city
And know that the heaven bless the ones
Who appreciate the view, nice and pretty
Independence was a strong thing for me
It made me who I was today
No regrets for when I lived on the streets
For those times will always stay
Now when I wonder the city streets
I keep one thing in mind
As long as the hope you have is true
Prosperity and loves what you find

Almost at The Door

Almost at The Door

For years I’ve been walking slowly
To find an out, a door for this key
Looking for acceptance in so many ways
A burning cause for the rest of my days
Beauty is an image that lies deep inside
Have I been one to go along for the ride
Still I long for an image that satisfies me
Is my reflection my only guarantee
More than myself I seek to do things right
I strive for greatness in the darkness of night
I want an outcome that reflects only me
Yet I trip over failure and fall in the sea
Again and again I can’t seem to win
Tornadoes surround me; I’m caught in its spin
Just when the skies above clear for the day
Here is my dark side to take it away
My friends and family are my foundation
I’m in constant shock at my frustration
Insecurities are only a small part of my worry
When it seems like time in such a hurry
When beauty is just an outside factor
You’re torn between it and your inside fury
One day I’ll find peace for myself once more
Till then I have the key, all I want is the door

Starlight Road

Starlight Road

Twilight Skies in my thoughts
As I remember the past
Such bittersweet contemplation
I wish those times could last
I remember those memories
Floating through starlit skies
I’m saddened to see those times end
But I’ll regrettably wave them good bye
I hope that galaxies you find are brighter
They are really hard not to miss
Know that you always have my heart
I’ve infused it with a kiss
As hard as it is to realize
I have to release this load
I forever wish you the best of luck
As I leave this starlight road

Traversing the Mountain Valley

Traversing the Mountain Valley

Running through these lifeless hills
The chilling wind at my back
I’m suppressing my unknown fears
As I recover from your attack
I remember when life was easy
Or perhaps deceivingly so
Your vines try to reinvite me
For my sake, I must let you go
There is a light at the end of all this
All my certainty suppresses my doubt
My future rides on my recovery
One day soon, I’ll get out
The Morning sun is dawning now
Darkness no longer severe
The courage I need to escape this maze
Has been hidden but always here
Soon the answers will be clear
And although the ground might shake
I forever keep running understanding
This resolve keeps me wide-awake

Revitalize

Revitalize

Being brought up in this world
If not to fail, then succeed
Life comes hard, blow after blow
Many contenders concede
Morals and values just guidelines
In a world filled with mistakes
I want to strive for perfection
This keeps me wide awake
Pain that’s felt like knives
Has been my only driving force
And perseverance, in hiding
Has been one very powerful source
The hardest thing for me to grasp
Was that love could disappear
The feeling left after the break
One step less sincere
Writing for me breaks the chains
A healthy new frontier
Belief within myself and friends
Wipe away all my tears
Revitalize my heart and soul
So I can finally feel
The powerful of faith working
A force I know always heals
