I walked into a spider web;

I felt it wrap around my face.

I felt revulsion sinking in,

Unaware of time and place.

I knew the dangers hidden there

As the spider hid from view.

But, I’m at a loss how to protect myself

From the spider known as you.

She used to be young and wild and free

When she first choose to belong to me,

But life has taken his toll on her.

Yet still she manages to stir

The heart that I gave her years ago

On the side of the road where a winter’s snow

Flying by or dragging instead,

Time is something I often dread.

It moves so slow when I need speed;

It moves so fast when I have time to breath.

The time we have is a finite lot,

But none of knows how much we’ve got.

We are afraid to waste…

Sometimes I like to be alone —

No friends or TV or cell phone

To distract me from my reverie —

As I let my thoughts and mind roam free.

I may ponder my future fate,

Or sit down with pencil to create

A sketch or a piece of poetry…

We question the books on our library shelves,

But hand out iphones like candy to our youth.

Say controversial books will corrupt children’s minds,

So we let them play games instead of finding truth.

We don’t want their innocent minds to be exposed

Because being addicted to mindless fluff

I said, you’ll never make me happy

You said, that is the sticking point

I looked at you with hurt in my eyes

You breezed, now don’t get out of joint

I mean you can’t rely on me

to solve your problems — that’s not fair

I want someone to…

Oftentimes we try to hide

Feelings buried deep inside

The lonely nights we’ve cried and cried

Because we didnt think we had a choice

But I urge you to open up your heart

Your words your message will impart

Realize it’s your journey to chart

Stand up and show your…

Find a moment of clarity

Get in touch with your reality

Allow your senses to roam free

Try to cut through all the noise

For the noise will crush creativity

Trap you in monotony

Mask you with obscurity

So, Banish all the noise

Instead write your own new song

Inhale courage, exhale fear

Meditate to find what path is clear

Take control- it’s your boat to steer

In this crazy maze called life

Don’t forget to breathe

It calms your soul

Breath in breath out when the storm clouds roll

And you will keep your identity

From fracturing in…
