For fifty years you’ve shone on earth.
Here’s to many more, dear mother.
Compared to your most vibrant beauty,
rainbows are just dull bands of color.

I could give you a million
reasons to stay,
but I’ll just remain silent
as you walk away.

Love isn’t an argument
or a heated debate;
if I have to convince you
then it’s gotten too late.

Friendships Emerge

New friendships emerge
from a state far away,
making this rainy place
more bearable today.

Blue Room

I need to pull away from you,
and though it’s hard, it’s the sad truth.
If I’m to continue to bloom,
I can’t return to a blue room.

Excuse my cold shoulder;
I’ll excuse your frozen heart.
As we’ve become older,
we’ve split and shifted apart.

God, give me passion for the things I believe in.
God, give me grace when I fail miserably.

We complain about the path
that the country is taking,
but we remain ignorant
because learning is draining.

These shitholes and sinkholes
are giving us wrinkles,
and still we sleep through
twenty years like Van Winkle.

They say the second amendment
is under attack
because some people think
guns don’t mix with Prozac.

So we play our trump card,
but it leaves us the loner.
With each day that passes
it feels more like a joker.

How many times
have we actually tried
to practice what we preach
and influence the tide?

They say love will prevail,
but we’ll have to make changes.
It isn’t some sort of
hero inside pages.

It seems to be naive
to care for each other,
treating one another
as sisters and brothers.

Our voices are useless
if we sit on our hands,
expect things to improve
while we never take stands.

They say timing is crucial.
Well the clocks are cruel rivals.
Focus on their faces,
and we’re dead on arrival.

A smile behind closed doors.
He’s got them in his palm.
Outrageous statements galore.
Oh where the fuck is calm?

Give me what
I’ve never had:
a person who loves
me for who I am.

It’s always this feeling
of not being good enough,
unworthy of being fought for
with a valiant love.
