week 577 ~ build up the small personal world

with 2 comments

build up the small personal world
around you let it surround you
myopically to get you through
to another day’s dreams still curled
up inside waiting once unfurled
there’ll be no going back proudly
you will stand walk ahead doubt free
but not today not yet take time
to heal make sure to wipe the grime
off the windshield so much to see

week 551 ~ a small fragment of hope though unbidden

with one comment

a small fragment of hope though unbidden
lingers near the corner of my vision
not leading forward for truth still hidden
paints a future unknown how can I shun
the light imaginary though it may
be at this moment still waiting to shine
to illuminate the dream that won’t say
its name not yet the one that could be mine
or could remain stillborn in this climate
of uncertain weather harsh refusals
pound like driving rain I try to time it
to break for the door but life bamboozles
me at every turn flaunting its disguise
I teeter perplexed wishing to be wise

week 523 ~ and we will shout hooray

with 2 comments

and we will shout hooray
for no reason at all
we’ve gained another day
and we will shout hooray
holding evil at bay
in hopes tyrants will fall
and we will shout hooray
for no reason at all

week 521 ~ blocked in a box no song to sing

with 2 comments

blocked in a box no song to sing
the light switch won’t work we regard
the darkness around us too hard
to hope for morning we’re waiting
for our time anticipating
there will be a way out ahead
a door to truth but here instead
glib promises what can be done
to turn the tide a task begun
our future still mired in dread

week 509 ~ happiness has put itself in mothballs

leave a comment »

happiness has put itself in mothballs
packed itself away pulled the covers up
over its head ignoring anxious calls
to reemerge shut down stuck in lockup
it sees no future place where it could bloom
dust dry fire ravaged cries of children
who are too sad to believe there’s still room
for it as the future unfolds not when
not if not how every day it searches
hoping to find a place to plant a smile
sorrow flows on unsteady it lurches
ahead invisible forgotten while
devious minds plot a future no one
wants life by money and power undone

week 507 ~ the red light turns to green

leave a comment »

the red light turns to green
and life returns to flow
again future unseen
the red light turns to green
luck needs to intervene
when hope is running low
the red light turns to green
and life returns to flow

week 496 ~ I am writing for a future

leave a comment »

I am writing for a future
a time when my voice will be heard
now it’s too bold so not a word
marks the world but that won’t deter
art music love all these infer
a presence as life is passing
by all the paint I can I fling
at the wall sonic graffiti
claws out through the work sets it free
to land somewhere where hopes can sing

week 495 ~ music is the only path out

leave a comment »

music is the only path out
sometimes when darkness is falling
vision muted future calling
for more than I can give without
melting into despair to doubt
the facts around me denial
tempts feigned blindness the trial
of waiting seems impossible
to navigate life should be full
of hope unfettered by guile

week 472 ~ once upon a blameless fear

with one comment

once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real
when the future looms unclear
once upon a blameless fear
we hold tight to all that’s dear
wait for someone else’s deal
once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real

week 468 ~ I wish I truly felt that way

with 2 comments

I wish I truly felt that way
it would be so much easier
to sleep at night to dream infer
peace from silence ignore decay
be hopeful keep the dark at bay
hold onto evening visualize
what never despite many tries
becomes in the end actual
though nothing’s inevitable
there’s sorrow when I close my eyes
