To Be Determined

I search for answers
to questions unknown.
I search for answers
not clearly shown.

I repeat this process
that leaves me weak.
Too tired to rest:
too worried to sleep.

I sit back and prepare
for surprises to come.
I am sure to care
for the place I’m from.

This life of mine
is to be determined.
I continue to shine
when darkness is certain.

I can’t lose track
of my progress.
I take a step.
I don’t look back.

I know my purpose
leaves me searching.
I know my life
is to be determined.

Take Me Away, Today.

Away

I go, I want to go —

Can you take me

away?

Away

I go, Can it be so?

Please, don’t go: stay.

Keep me in place.

No,

Wait.

Make me pave my way.

Can I go? Who will I face?

I want to go, take me

away.

Help me, I wish to go

to a place unknown.

Take me

away 

to a better place.

Take me

away,

today;

I can’t stay.

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.

Molly’s Moment

Reality is shifting. Can I adjust?

Spirits are lifting. Who to trust?

Perception altered. Time went fast.

Memories fade: Some unscathed.

I journey home. I forever roam.

Visions look different.

Nothing’s the same –

Yet I remain

on a journey

to find home.

Hours, days, and weeks go by

And I look at the same sky.

Molly’s moment feels so right.

This is her moment; This is her night.

Hot Head

Beads of sweat build

On the surface of my face.

Eyes sweat filled.

No signs of shade.

Sun beams down,

Surprising me often.

It comes around

As my skin softens.

Oh, heat! Give me a break.

I’m becoming a hot head.

The sun I cannot shake

Turns white to red.

Oh, heat! Please be kind.

I sweat and I sweat.

Oh, sun! You’ll be fine

For it is time that you set.
