He's More Than Hair

He's human with real flaws,
But genius more than me,
Shining mind like his curls
More than what you can see,
Thoughts deeper than dimples,
But still o so simple.

I met him in the park
And judged him instantly,
For he was cool and far
From the books that I've seen,
All of the girls loved him,
For that, I hated him.

Wait 'til you know someone
Through the boredom and fun,
Then talk out in the sun.

That I wish I had known
Right before speaking out,
Before I put him down,
For he's the greatest now,
The man poems can have,
He's my almost lost love.

Trying so hard to count
In all of the right ways
Because they count out loud
Without a thought of grace
Someday, someday, I'll win
As I sleep when lights dim

Forgiving their judgments
Riding to all the waves
Of the health and ailments
Of this career that saves
My one, true future dream
Although still far it seems

But there's a glow in me
It's growing to burst free
And its power will flee

And I can't keep myself
From shouting out to you
All stored words from the shelf
To ward off the dark blue
Just saying what I mean
To show you the real scene

For it is beautiful
Like the old days of youth
Like goodness in your heart
That stays when you see art
This is my gift to life
This is my worth in life.

He works with stupid boys,
He walks with skinny legs,
He wears the silly clothes,
He's standing on the edge
Of the overrated
And the constipated.

For labels cover you,
The strong ones try to own
Someone who's not yet through
The whole, witnessing town.
He carried all their names
And played all of their games.

I forgot about him,
For everything they seem,
And his whole, stupid team.

But I can still be wrong.
This man knows things I don't
And it will not be long,
"Til the people I won't
Bring to win will fail
In this man's winning tale.

Today was a Victory

Today had many pains,
A lot of suffering,
In the thunder and rain,
Holding and restraining
With a steel hand of bad,
Things that held all I had.

Today, there was bleeding,
Spilled all over the floor
From droplets from the ceiling,
And sliding down the wall,
I know, I stopped breathing
As my soul went wreathing.

Today, there was no sun,
And not a sight of land,
Every good deed undone.

But today, I have yearned
For freedom and power,
Through the pains, I have learned
To be stronger, better,
So today, victory
Fills everything I see.

Come to Shore

Tentacles gripping me,
But it's gotta let go,
For I am breaking free,
Though not so long ago,
It held me in embrace
Of death, torture, and madness.

It is beyond my words,
Beyond what I can tell,
The horror it affords
To create in the well
Of the tears I have cried,
But only gods decide.

The escape to the edge
Of the sea like a ledge.

Stumbling across the sand,
Legs in moving motion
To the waves I once had,
Free from that delusion,
Now, what does this new land
Have to give me a hand?

Living Conditions

The sink is on the roof,
The bathroom is missing,
It's in the neighborhood,
Leave your bed, go looking,
It's the last neighborhood,
As if you still feel good.

Bed gets wet when it rains,
And you get wet also,
So stand up when it rains,
For you are no fatso,
Many bones can stay straight,
Stand up all night and wait.

And they say you're lazy,
Wondering you're crazy,
"He needed a kidney."

You're busy surviving,
There's no time to listen,
No time to get hurting,
When everything's taken,
And you have to squeeze through,
Just so you make it through.

Revenge and Justice

It's tsokolate ah,
And tsokolate eh.
It is a pariah,
And many noblemen.
It's an insanity,
And controlled sanity.

It's human emotion,
The dark side of living,
It's against good motion,
Although it is moving,
And it is so shocking,
But it is not stopping.

Do not fret, my dear friends,
For there's a line that ends
In between the two bends.

For in justice, we work
Just to right what is wrong,
A spoon with every fork,
The weak helped by the strong,
Justice is the balance,
So give justice a chance.

Try to continue life,
Even though they throw stones,
Threaten you with a knife,
Don't you look at the drones,
The crowds that pull your beard,
Ignore although it's weird.

Keep on walking in pain,
With the bruises they give,
All the glory they gain,
All you do is forgive,
What is the difference
Between good and stupid?

For the Bible said so.
I shall not intervene,
But please, lend me an ear.

You have only two cheeks,
What happens on the third?
Your story only reeks
With what is overheard.
For Moses led some wars,
You can't live without force.

I'm not saying you leave
The path that is lighted,
Continue to believe,
But be concentrated
On what is wrong, what is right,
What is weakness and might.

The Goldfish

A skin meant for swimming,
Fins that flip in water,
Eternally looking,
In a color better,
Than the popular stone,
Pleasantly not fully-grown.

But if you laugh at her,
For not having your legs,
Never walking, ever,
Swimming water that eggs
Not close enough to land,
A silly tail like wand.

O her days will be dark,
Nothing can ever spark
Her little, shameful heart.

For she can't walk like you,
She can't leave her water,
O has no hair like you,
She doesn't feel better,
Though she's meant to swish
As the little goldfish.

The Dragon

Screaming, running of feet,
Slashing sounds of their swords,
In the air of panic,
In the war of the lords.
There are no more children,
No beautiful women.

Just enemies to kill,
Tearing down their pillars.
Gods, worship we will,
But in years of these wars,
They have torn you down, too,
And then she made it through.

Patterns of moving scales,
A jaw flexed in anger,
And ready to breathe fire.

Flames chasing enemies,
Now in their own panic,
Chasing them out so swift,
Without the win they seek,
Out of our tall wall,
And it will never fall.
