The Broken Windshield

This one time I saw a rock hit my friends window. It was the first time I ever saw anyone being calm about car damage. They said ah yeah look at that, it did break the glass. I thought to myself if it is possible to be this calm, is the world just going all wrong? Are people freaking out about nothing, when they could be calm about something. Looking through this shattered image of the world around us. Driving on the super highway of cracked gazes. Watching the sun refract on the crack with might and all its light. So I hope that all the people all around understand why not to frown. That world could have a better place, if we didn’t take part in the rat race. Cause you see my friends, when you are freaking out to no ends, you gotta wonder, is that going to help this situation mend?

This Machine Needs to Stop

My goals feel like more than I know,

My body always want to go

And I know

I am suppose to expose my heart to you in pain,

Leave on this stage a big blood stain,

Let every word hurt

As I look at my words and strain

But there is more to this world than pain

My eyes have deceived me,

My heart doesn’t believe me,

Can’t you see why I speak these words?

I am not up here just throwing turds,

I scream for the people who can’t help themselves,

I scream for the ones who never had a chance,

My heart breaks for the ones who have been wronged,

My head spins for the hearts that never had a song.

I just want community,

I just want some unity,

This machine needs to stop,

We don’t need to keep buying things on the block,

We can plant the seeds of tomorrow today,

And watch this evil world go away,

All it takes it one good deed,

One outstretched hand,

Don’t wait for the government,

Fuck the man!

We can do this with hearts

And our minds,

We need to help everyone

Even the unkind,

So share something nice with everyone you see,

And remember to help your community.

Spiritually Homeless

As I wake up today

My heart stays with pain

Rolling through my life

Like a zombie in strife,

I know my heart can find it spark,

As I find a mission to impart,

I have my hopes and dreams,

And I keep moving forward it seems,

But I am spiritually homeless,

A heart empty and hopeless

No hope in the world for me,

I spend days at time,

With nothing to find,

Will someone light the way for me.

Screaming through the bright lights,

Full of cheer even during sleepless nights,

Happy and hungry,

But it’s not even Monday,

I want to find my heart,

Even though it broken apart,

And I keep giving people chances ……

Anyway

But I am spiritually homeless,

A heart empty and hopeless

No hope in the world for me,

I spend days at time,

With nothing to find,

Will someone light the way for me.

I meet someone new,

But my heart is a askew,

I keep asking why bother today?

As things get in my way.

I want to give them a chance,

But my heart no linger takes that stance,

So I push them away from…..

Me

But I am spiritually homeless,

A heart empty and hopeless

No hope in the world for me,

I spend days at time,

With nothing to find,

Will someone light the way for me.

I am still with that someone new,

They stay and wouldn’t let me stew,

There is a break in the clouds today,

So open your heart wide,

Even if your cautious inside,

Because there is a chance things will

Be…..

Ok

But I am spiritually homeless,

A heart empty and hopeless

No hope in the world for me,

I spend days at time,

With nothing to find,

Will someone light the way for me.

The Mask of Pain

The room is crowded and full of people,

And from the haze one walks up with mask,

It was full and gray with a hint of malaise,

But the eyes where happy along with the smile,

The body was gone and there was just smoke,

Dark grey and brooding with a smell that could choke,

I knew that the two didn’t match,

I hoped some conversation would help the truth hatch,

Inquiring about the passions and turmoil,

The answer were dull with no dirt or soil.

The mask picked up a glimmer of red, warm and fuzzy was the effect that it said,

I knew I was making progress into their minds eye,

But that darkness was still there if they Just let me inside,

Days and months passed while I worked on the words,

and then one day, There was a smile I heard,

While the darkness was there, I finally revealed a passion,

They liked to make art out of china bowls they were smashing,

As I inquired deeper, for them it was both a relief and a quest,

They knew it would help stop the darkness and give them rest.

So while everyone may not be able to address the evil within,

If they take steps towards it I will consider it a win.
