Vegetarian

I am raw

A red and bloody stake upon your table

Meat and fat

I’m hard to swallow

Too real

Not dead yet

Almost twitching still as you stab at me with fork and knife.

Eat me, go ahead and cut me up!

We’ll see who stays alive and which one dies.

Dumb

Although my words aren’t strong

I stutter and am dumb

I will speak

I am like a babe learning new words—a language

I hear a mix of sounds and try to make out meaning

One day I will rise and no longer be inhibited

Not a minor of words

But a speaker of truths

Because every eye can see

But not everyone can say

We are worthy

I want to be strong

To lead and be at the forefront—A1!

I want to be

To exist to live

To thrive and excel

I want to be better

People of the past have suffered and died

What lessons have I gained, what have I learned?

What will I push forward and pass on?

This life is a mystery and a war I will not see the end of

But I fight my battles and hope that I alone am not the victor

I care not for my life or yours

I care for ours together as one

We move forward and live

In silence in secret from each other we hide

But we are one and the same

Slight variances do not overthrow

the reality that we are brethren, twins at the soul

And everyone of yearns and loves

Cries and laughs

We all strive for the same enlightenment and overall bliss

So lets gather our army and take the world by storm

We have but one shot at making the mark that others have left

Forefathers showed us now lets make them proud

And live lives that are worthy of the miracle of life.

our time

Who speaks for us

Who is our leader

Who is our voice

How will our times

Be represented

What will our image be

What lasting words

will be remembered

what stories told, retold

What will we stand for

How will we shine

And be forever placed

Among the stars that form

Our past and future world

SHHH!–The Muse

I wish I could express myself and sing a beautiful song,

I want to sing to say out loud the words I feel in my soul

But yet alas no more may come and ‘stead I’ll be empty inside.

Yearning for more, wanting what’s there but grasping only at straws.

Like sand held tightly in a hand

The harder I try the quicker it stops

It disappears and wont come near

The heart that wants to be dear.

Anxiety

Im not sure why I hide from the world

But I feels like it is attacking me.

Every act of love turns into hurt

And I cringe as I feel you call out my name.

Why am I afraid?

There is nothing there but you and me.

But you judge me

Every word

We both know it

And it burns.

So I’d rather stay away and live freely

Than be around you and be a slave

To your contempt.
