The Painful Truth Vol. 2

It all started with a SMILE, and a HI

After introductions, I couldn't wait to say GOODBYE

As CIRCUMSTANCES would dictate, we were bound to MEET

And every single time, our FACES would greet

The talk was quite SWEET, and then a bit SOUR

All of a sudden, I'm hoping that she's gone by the HOUR

Her language was soft but her words were FRUSTRATING

My patience was thin, yet I stood there DEBATING

With my TEMPERAMENT tested and my ATTITUDE questioned

I found that my FEELINGs for her were still SECTIONED

Talks of friendship were followed by talks of OPPOSITION

Her bi-polar nature didn't fit my pleasant DISPOSITION

But far from it, she had surpassed my PREDICTIONS

A gaze in her direction all but sealed my CONVICTIONS

With nothing but my PRIDE and my WORDS in hand

I gave in to her charms with my common sense UNMANNED

My Life With Friends

I am grateful for discovering such wonderful friends

Who have stood by me, despite my changing views and trends

Who often recite me, when I'm down or in pain

Who always celebrate me, whether I make a loss or gain

I really feel privileged to have known such outstanding people

Whose kindness and generosity to me, have known no equal

Whose reactions to my actions bring joy and satisfaction

Whose influence and support help to abate any distractions

I have known the taste of true friendship and unity

That offers protection and guarantees social immunity

That provides capital to even the smallest of our ideas

That both tests our resolve and helps to overcome our fears

I am really thankful to the friends I have known

And to those whose journeys have crossed paths with my own

To those whose lives have passively inspired mine

And to those who everyday enable me to shine

Bless Y'all

Lost In Thought Vol. 3

The pain is gone and I am now reborn 

A new vein of life without fear of the norm

A new found insight to lay the foundation

A fresh hunger, greater drive to balance the equation

Old habits do linger, still no ring on my finger

I detest smoking, but I must confess I'm still a drinker

I encourage joking, but don't call me a joker

I occasionally gamble, but don't play cards or poker

My attitude is different, my outlook has changed

My desires remain the same but my priorities re-arranged

My approach is less cautious, my tactics more subtle

My preparations complete as I prepare to exit my bubble

My emotions are like a windshield, and logic, my wiper

When I feel a problem, these tools help me to decipher

Today is uncertain and may hold a potential danger

The past is an old friend, the future is a quiet stranger

"In my search for insight, I have encountered some life changing realities

That the world as we know it, is far from depicted normalities

We are slaves of the system, victims of the human race

Bound by economic struggle, with a motive to having one face

But unknown to many, like all slaves we have masters

Like pawns to a king, creating man-made disasters

Playing out wars and directing power struggles

All to trap the people in their own little bubbles"
