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.

De-Pressed

Feeling down for reasons unknown

Fed up with pressures surrounded

Stuck in a mind of your own

Knowing each memory is counted

Stomach pressed and squeezed

Living the days with a straight face

Wondering if others are pleased

And truly happy in their place.

Wondering. Thinking. Wishing

For something more meaningful

BUT

With motivation and desire missing

Bodies are left with starving souls.

The brain can say what it wants

Almost like a separate entity;

BUT

The eyes feed the brain

and should not be enemies.

Believe what you see and

Paint the picture fitting

How valuable life is, man?

Priceless.

There is no bidding.
