my soulmate, the word is broken, fragile, but what I feel in my heart is not,
stronger than steel, sealed by our love, no doubt, no hesitation.
Often as the great wheel turns, we run like hamsters to keep up, one stumbles and falls,
bourne by the promise of better times we rise again and continue, the goal is now in sight,
...Finally. It was like a ocean journey, the waves were high, but we held on to each other.
Through hard times and good you are always there, my sweet angel. I no longer fear the turbulent
waters of the future, as long as I am by your side, an

Wiping clear humans, be they humble or mean
Pitting one against another, with alliances vague
And still, we dream.
There appears to be little to no hope
Children go barefoot and, hungry, are lean
Trust is nigh inexistent, tensions taught as a rope
And still, we dream.
Conflict has seeped into our minds and souls
Making every horror just another we have seen
And where our hearts once beat stands a hole
And still, we dream.
Once there was purity and innocence
Now looms hollow sobs and screams;
Treacheries and schemes that make no sense
And still, we dream.
Yes we dream, dream of a better place

Forever held highly.
The dream grows
Morphs to better fit
Yet never veers off course.
Held deeply in his heart
Has been fulfilled
On to a new goal
A new set plan.
What will it be?

7 billionThere is 7 billion people on earth. And yet, each and every one of them, is unique. It may seem like no one cares about you, like there is too many other people, but someone somewhere does care. You are the only person that can live your life, the only person that can live your dream. And yet, you hesitate. You try and wait it out, for your dream to come to you. But instead, its waiting for you. Not him, not her, you. All you need to do is take a chance, and grab it. And yes, you almost certainly will fail, but don't give up. You might fail a thousand times, but never give up the will to make your dream a reality, whatever it may be. And you7 billion22 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This

I got my life together right
Wings are strong with national pride,
Have my family to support me
Time to start stepping over people
And use them to my advantage
No one said the road to the top
Was going to be an easy one
Whatever it takes,
It matters to me not
The ends outweigh the means,
The price for success
And what will happen when I fall?
When it all starts falling apart?
Pretty pictures that once were my life
Are now plagued with the seal of inexperience
Too young to fly but still I try;
To follow in the footsteps of those before
For the lifestyle I wish for,
For the recognition that I crave

"I can't believe the thoughts that comes out of my head, before my feet hit the floor and I've rolled out of bed.
All the silly jargon and rantings and such, sometimes I think even for me it's too much.
But after there out in the world to be read, I think between you and I I should have stayed in bed.
So I think for us all it can be agreed, that I should not always speak my mind but write what others may need.
Though if these thoughts remained inside my head instead of seeping out, my sanity might be in question and by writing them down I will have removed all doubt."

My heart longing for the comfort of your touch.
Lonely Are the nights without you by my side.
My body yearning for the warmth of being held by you.
Sensual are the dreams that fill my mind.
My desire for you raging uncontrolled.
Elating are the stories played out in my head.
As I plan for my wishes to be granted.
Haunting are the nightmares that fill my slumber.
While my demons remind me of their power.
Fearfully I face the somber reality of life.
Afraid my forever will never arrive.

You spoke of ways of compassion and love,
But only to save your own hide
The Devil was not out of you!
Your light only carries so far..
Only under the sun does your power reign
But dive into the depths and your love means your death
Human invention is your mother
Water is submission!
Submit to the pits,
Where the cathedral crumbles
And priests penetrate horny nuns;
Nature knows no morality
Here in the pubic hairs of the Mother Earth,
In her forests and jungles,
Does one know the true meaning of Self!
Kali! Raise your sword! Strike with might!
Beat the drums of war for the meek inherit your scraps

On the ground.
Eventually you will die there.
Reunited with the lives you had to spare.
Crushed by a slap.
You wished for everything.
Humiliation seems to make humanity fap.
I tried to help you.
Scooped you up.
Don't listen to him.
You don't have to.
He's not even tough.
They made a bridge.
We crossed it.
Going to beg for change.
Just like poor Christine,
I've seen my days where I've just lost it.
You spotted cool water.
Purchased with meaningless paper I gave you.
Oh my dear,
you smell a little musty.
And with each sip you take you get more fussy.
Fate brought us together.

Where can I go?
Where can I hide?
Try to rebuild

I don't understand.
I don't know why.
Why any of this
I'm sure there's

Something I owe,
something to learn.
I don't know!
All I know
is the darkness
of fear and feeling
I can't help but wonder

Looking at the figure disregarded
A scoff arises in the night air
With breath filling the lungs of the watched
All that is left in the wake is a brutal awakening
Chalice of hatred be sipped deeply...
Nothing but resentment remains
If there was ever a speck of hope left
It was to be stripped from the sky that instant
Leaving nothing to gather but a hopeless remnant
Whispering streaks of the forbidden abyss
A chalice best left for the lost...
If there was ever a wish to be sought
To avoid this fate was the one to be ranked
Never to cross fate or say something foolish

Continuing the important journey
O, the sights of this open road!
I'm still on the highway with no apparent purpose
A storm brewing on the pale horizon
Tired of this arduous journey
O, the boredom of this open road!

it is you who spreads wide
