For All The Times

For all the times I said good bye

I’m writing now to say hello

For all the times I made you cry

I’m writing now to say I know

For all the times you’ve prayed to god

And asked him how or why

Just let your heartache go

For all the times I said good bye

I’m writing now to say hello

Free Verse

Free Verse is sweet
It’s the writer’s treat
These lovely ladies
Got me writing like crazy
Thanks for the push
It’s better than the kush
I want to say thanks
For giving me a break
Writing wasn’t my thing
Until I got the Free Verse sting
I hope one day
I could help someone the same way
If it wasn’t for you
I’d probably be playing with my shoe

Where I'm From

Where I’m From

I’m from the drugs

And playing with the bugs

I’m from playing in the mountains

And always shouting

I’m from the ponderosa pines

Not the jungle vines

I’m from the meth lab

And the Ford crew cab

I’m from the big sky

And always getting high

I’m from the two story house

And wandering all around

I’m from the dark nights

Just sitting there trying to take flight

I’m from the bottle

Causing dad to go wide open throttle

I’m from the drug store snacks

To the long naps

I’m from the place

That has the meth project pace

I’m from the #1 suicidal state

With a million ranch gates

We

Because we won’t fall

    We get stronger

Because we don’t cry

    Don’t mean we don’t care

Because we wear a mask

    Doesn’t mean we don’t wanna be seen

Because we were young

    We need to be taught so we follow wrong or right

Because

Because this is my land

Because my ancestors were here first

Because my ancestors fought to protect

Because our land was stolen

Because the earth is a living thing

Because the trees walk

Because the lakes speak

Because rocks have power

Because we are one nation

We Are

We are the kids who beg for mercy,

Yet we cause pain to others.

We are the kids who are rejected,

Yet we reject others.

We are the kids who don’t see things through,

Yet we fall to them.

We are the kids who are impatient,

Yet we are made to wait.

We are the people of the future,

Yet we dwell in the past.

 

We used to live in tranquil

But yet again were set on a disastrous path.

We used to see love as it once was,

But that drug is what makes us all become numb.

Dark Mornings

Dark mornings blue nights

There is some things you can’t make right

But you still fight

For a better life

Then that’s when

It takes you by the grasps

And tells you

We can’t leave this dark past

So why you fight

If you know that your love

Can’t grow to this better life

So stop trying to fight

Because you can’t win

Not even me

And I’m the wind

Demons

I’ve never met my biological dad

My life isn’t even my own fad,

I feel like a demon trapped in a human’s skin,

I wake up without knowing where I’ve been,

I keep hoping things will get better,

I hope you get this, it’s to the letter

Dear Self

I’ve seen you slipping, forever falling down

Never acting like yourself, mood swings going around

I’ve thought about stepping in and helping, but you don’t look open to it now

My voice is growing dimmer, soon you won’t even hear the sound

I hope you pull it together, working this program is the first step

I’d hate to see you forever stuck, drowning in the depth

Change

There is good things

Ha, that’s not true

Nobody is trustworthy

 

Everyone’s against you

It’s false that

There are great people out there

I’m telling you

There is no hope for society

 

It’s a wrong belief that

There’s a group of true friends for everyone

Everyone is a backstabber

Don’t believe that

There is good, good things in everyday life

 

< -- >

 

There is good, good things in everyday life

Don’t believe that

Everyone is a backstabber

There’s a group of true friends for everyone

It’s a wrong belief that

 

There is no hope for society

I’m telling you

There are great people out there

It’s false that

Everyone’s against you

 

Nobody is trustworthy

Ha, that’s not true

There is good thing

Let's Pretend

This game we

Play is let’s pretend

And pretend we’re

Not pretending

 

Life is hard,

We all get that,

But that doesn’t

Mean we’ve hit

Rock bottom

 

Our past may

Let us down but

That doesn’t mean

We can’t reach

Back and grab it

And tear the bad

Memories to shreds

 

Your will is your power

Don’t pretend you don’t

Have it 

Or you won’t
