The Disconnect

A brisk breeze hits my skin like a locomotive train

My heart is here but my mind feels all the pain

Smile, and think everything’s okay,

When in reality it’s driving me insane.

My mind is on a different sphere

It’s not with my heart, cause my heart is here.

My heart feels the fear but my mind knows the end is near.

They are disconnected in reality

But are aware of each other in the highest degree

With me being the heart and you being the mind,

How can we reconnect and continue the ride.

Take it one day at a time

And maybe in the end

I’ll finish the rhyme

But until then,

I’ll search for my mind

And continue this grind.

Where the Wild Things Are

What is this life?

What are we doing here?

Life’s too short to live in embarrassment and fear.

But how can I live when I feel like I’m not here.

Take it one day at a time, see the sun rise

Let out the emotions, let out the cries

Look to the sky, and see life’s surprise.

Spread your wings, close your eyes, and float to the skies.

This earth, this life, is nothing without you.

Unique and new, the endless opportunity to renew.

But why float away when you can improve.

Take a deep breath, feel the feels, feel the heals.

Jump in the car, and find where the wild things are.

Darkness and Light

In a world filled with darkness

there is always a light

no matter how dark

it is always in sight

no matter how strong it might be

with just a flick or strike

light lets you see

if you stay too long

your eyes will adapt

now in the darkness you are trapped

with no need of light any longer

your heart and mind begin to wander

with no light available

your brain is no longer stable

with hope and time running out

you find a light that is oh so bright

walk towards it and turn it on

only to find out that your life is gone.
