The Discovery

For many years, people have been
searching for treasure somewhere
under the sea. Many have tried
to dive to the bottom and died
with gold shining in both eyes.
The treasure has made men mad
and has turned good men bad.
The treasure remains untouched.
No man or woman has found
this underwater town housing
treasure causing false pleasure.
Not until many years later,
when there was a sailor
who traveled as he pleased
and watched over the seas.
Now and again, he casted a pole
in hopes to catch enough food
to eat. One day, he casted a pole,
and he felt a tug. He pulled up
the line, and he knew he found
the lost treasure he only heard
about. Without making a sound,
the sailor traveled into the mist
with the treasure he just found.
The discovery was never known
as the sailor never made it home.

Triangulate My Fate

I have to be close to where
I want to be. It is hard
to measure what I can’t see.
I know I am close
to what means the most.
I can finally see beams
of light cut up the night.
As I push on, I can see
a familiar reflection
smiling back at me.
I desired so much;
I almost lost touch.
Now I must find
what continues to shine.
In this life of mine,
I will never whine.
I must find my fate
before it is too late.
I must live hour to hour,
work away, and remember
to play. My fate awaits
another day as I push on
through life’s crazy maze.

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.

Forefront

What are you waiting for?

For the door to swing open?

Stuck and wishing for more?

For happiness to just happen?

Don’t settle, the forefront is waiting.

Keep pushing towards what is right

And if you ever see yourself debating

Follow your gut and test your might.

Because the forefront is waiting

For a fighter like you

To find solace

And to find the forefront too.

X

The sad truth is that doors stay close

Until it is opened by a powerful force

Making the effort and doing the most

To change without remorse.
