Bombs Away

My finger is on the button.
Let me know when to press
it. One finger can change
everything. A single bomb,
when inside its proximity,
causes utter dysfunction
due to its mass destruction.
Leaving nothing but rubble,
a bomb will cause trouble.
When there is nothing left
but fragments of the past,
a thriving history surely
will not last. After a blast,
the surviving buildings
are just sad shadows cast.
Tell me when. I’ll press it.
When it is pressed, know
that’s when war begins
as peace is put to rest.



In my Dreams

I seem to believe what I see
in my dreams. I can recall
vivid visions of my past.
I remember you visiting me
in my dreams. I fall asleep
with you on my mind as I find
time to unwind. Deep in sleep,
my brain goes unchained.
I take a walk without moving
and I talk without speaking.
In my dreams, my broken
memories come visit me.
Old thoughts and new ideas
dance inside my head, behind
my eyelids. In my dreams,
everything feels all too real.
As I sleep, the show starts,
in my dreams, where I watch.

Fork in the Road

Two separate ways lead to
two very different places.
One way will take you away.
The other way will not stay.
One can change you. It’s true.
The other can be strange too.
Depending on your path,
you might not be happy.
The good thing is that
your life is happening.
The fork in the road
appears every single mile.
You’ll find your own way,
but it may take a while.
In life, there are many forks
that must be considered
cuz’ one road might be littered.
Whatever way you take,
don’t wait for your own sake.
The road you choose to take
is paved for you to meet your fate.

The More You Know

I love you, you know that?

I think about you often.

I hope you know

my life you softened.

I am not as sad

as I was before.

I know what I had,

but I wanted more.

I can see clearly;

I am not afraid

as my past I bury

on the ground, I lay.

I can’t help to know

this life so vast.

I love you as I go

for as long as I last.
