[poetry]we the people

we the people
we the children of the revolution
we betrayed ourselves
no evolution/revolution
when we refuse to recognize
some things don’t revolve around us
we hide our faces/names
fight with memes/intolerance
not our hearts/souls/minds
if we are quiet
we’re only waiting to speak
not to listen/communicate
we the people
keyboard warriors all
screaming into the void
not caring if anyone hears
discommunication in miscommunication
masked as mass communication
a cacophony of voices
drowning each other out
even our own
we the children of the universe
afraid of silence
afraid of words not parroting our own
afraid of everything

children
step back
step up
face the fear
embrace freedom
from what we’ve let ourself become
we the people

[poetry]trigger

(Photography credit unknown)

step back
look around
find the grip
don’t let it go
…..if i said this is all of me
…..would you accept me for all i’m not
…..would you drown in my insecurities
…..burn in the fire of my self doubt
step back
think it through

…..do you pull the trigger
…..do you walk away forever

[poetry]breathe


…breathe
……one
………two
…………three
in and out out and in
eyes shut tight
just make it through
don’t let them see you cry

…breathe
……one
………two
…………three
slam into me
who do you think you are
sad pathetic little boys
with sad pathetic little toys
i am everything
you are nothing

…breathe
……one
………two
…………three
find the place the pain ends
find the moment you begin

…breathe
……one
………two
…………three
now repeat forever
