Let It Go

Can we really win

thisĀ infiniteĀ race

when we know

some things are hard to replace?

It’s hard to let

just One thing go

and keep you’re life

in a steady flow.

Brutality

my wrist curls back

I feel the stick weighing

in my hand

as I propel it forward

to strike the head

of it.

the head vibrates

violently

shaking

trembling.

I cock back my foot

and give it

a swift kick

to the face.

Not once but

two

three

four

times.

After another

stick to the face,

I rear back and

crash into it.

As my cymbal simmers,

my guitarist glances back

and nods

as if to say.

“you killed it”

 


undisturbed: dreaming

come to me easy

as i lay down tonight

make peace in my mind

as i sleep tonight

whether in a bed or on the streets

in a prison cot

or cold dirt floor

sleep will always cleanse the soul

and until sunrise

let me sleep in peace

undisturbed

dreaming

bliss

come to me easy

as i lay down tonight


reality

harsh

stunning

relentless

cunning

thirsty

unforgiving

melancholy

just another

brick in the wall;

reality check


lesson learned

how am i supposed to learn my lesson

when i know not what i am being taught

do i sit here and listen

pretend?

or do i question

where others fear to do so


stone throw

a stone’s throw away

it seems so close

but as the stone flies

so does your target

you can never seem to be quite there

at quite the right time


Superbowl Sunday

Hundreds of people

spend Billions of dollars

to try to make

Millions of dollars.

Millions people

spend hours preparing,

spend Hundreds of dollars,

buying things they are told

they need to have.

Millions to be made,

Millions to be lost,

and it’s all for

a game.
