No Fly Zone

Higher and higher – away we go.
We are flying in a no fly zone.
We have to fly; it’s the only way
home. We can’t let others see
us fly – they might shoot us
out of the air. Who would care?
In the air, no one would dare
to be seen. As frequent flyers,
we have an insatiable desire
that yearns to burn like fire.
They can’t keep us down forever.
Our wings – they could never
sever. We will continue to fly
anywhere we please. So please,
stay grounded and well-rounded.
This no fly zone is our new home:
a time in space we won’t waste.


Misguided Missiles

Rockets fly – missiles shoot across the sky.
Who is shooting these large weapons?
Destruction seems tempting. Missiles
lose control after being launched. Now,
I see misguided missiles fly without
a purpose. Once shot, it’s an afterthought.
They are forgotten. If missiles don’t have
a guide, then they are sure to collide.
Don’t shoot at those who have chosen to
live in peace. Don’t launch a rocket
at those who have empty pockets.
If you do shoot, guide your missile
before, during, and after its dismissal.

Beautiful Soul

My heart becomes full
when I’m around you:
a beautiful soul. I see
you glow brighter than
you know. You show
others a light shining
when theirs is dying.
A beautiful soul stays
and helps me and you
experience better days.
I feel a beautiful soul
with me, showing me
a life that I can’t see.
I feel you. I really do.
I hope, one day, my
soul will grow and be
a thing you feel: free.

The Shape Shifter

It can change its face.
It can take your place.
It can shift its shape.
It can live inside us all.
It can burn all the love
you have left. It can hurt
the soul. It can pull you
more than you know.
It can grow fast. It can
control your thoughts.
It can tell you to be
someone new. It can look
like me or you. It can start
there and come here. Don’t
be fooled. The evil lurking
around can shape shift.
It can take you away
from yourself. Don’t let it.
Don’t run. Face your fear
and look in the mirror.
Don’t disappear. Combat
the evil with peace, love.
Allow the light to guide you
to a feeling you once knew.

Weightless

Often times, I am floating
with nothing to hold me down.
I feel weightless like a feather
in just about any weather.
I feel weightless, yet I carry
all this weight. Sometimes,
I wonder how I can rid myself
of all bad things that remain.
The pain and anguish will soon
parish. I can feel myself become
light as negative thoughts rot.
My body will continue to drive
just as long as I want to ride.
