“REAL LIFE TO BE”

30123927_2067145416945210_3755742656022446080_n

The retreating horizon

gobbles up dead memories,

erroneously important.

The aura of their hurt

degenerates into a mist

awaiting their burning…

Their echoing percussions

lingering as they defuse,

Moments made in rain…

The welcoming tomorrows

desire not their awful pain,

yesterdays not returning…

The NOW awaits, and is free

regenerating with promises

energizing real life to be!! …

“NUMB”

women-figure-painting-lauri-blank-04

As the day comes to me

as a century

as the problems around

touch me deep inside.

As I get old

in a second

I feel

that I don’t feel.

I think

that I don’t think

But I hope

There’s still hope

for me!! …

“I WILL RETURN”

21231977_1441280142653814_5770716198404447223_n

Here I am so far from home;

And wondering just now.

It came to pass that I should be-

So far from you right now…

I can not really understand,

Just why I want to stay;

And yet I often hope for when-

I’ll be returning home someday…

I want to live most anywhere,

As long as I can roam;

And someday you’ll be seeing me,

Walking down the street toward the home…

Until that day is finally here,

I will not cease to pray-

That God will always keep you-

Until I am home again!! …

“MORALITY RESCUED”

pejac-5

Perhaps it is not always by choice-

That we must face an ultimate challenge.

And perhaps it is our wish to absolve ourselves from our perils;

And plead for assistance from anyone to save our lives.

But sometimes we are left with only our own self.

And it may take all we have inside to go forward,

In order for us to survive.

And a hero does not necessarily suddenly decide a feat to overcome;

As perhaps a peril may choose to defeat the spirit.

And this is when the soul is empowered.

And we come to realize that-

It is with our immorality-

That our morality can be rescued!! …

“PANGS OF HEART”

1

Did you hear me today,

When I said goodbye?

I walked away from you,

Trying to understand why,

There’s no answer for me!

I can’t even cry.

If I could have an hour,

Another hour with you,

I wouldn’t be afraid to say-

Words I thought you knew.

I thought our time together-

Wouldn’t end so soon.

Now nights will be empty,

With no light of moon,

Because my heart was broken.

This day,

I’d take your memory with me.

No matter what I do,

If I could have another hour with you;

The hour that I never had!! …
