What lies behind

Who are we to educate
Future generations
With words of hate and prejudice
By ancient prophets
Long since dead
Truths from ages past
Nothing like our own
Isn't it time
To leave what lies behind

Than that helpless moment
You lost all control
And see approach
With eyes wide open
Your inescapable fall

Your mind

About opinions
Not my own

To be

Crash into me

Tidal waves of disappointment
Crash into me
As my
Conflicting opinion
With your image
Of who you
Wish me
To be

Horrors I live each night

I’m okay
With the horrors
I live each night
With eyes closed
We go way back
It’s the unknown
I might meet
While I’m awake
That scares me

An icon, remembered

I don’t need to be
An icon
Or even
I just want to be
While I’m
Still here

Captured reflections

I’m glad
You like my words
But these poems
I write for me
They are
Captured reflections
Of my sanity today
So I can still understand
What I’m about to do

Forcing a smile

No matter
How much strength
It takes
There is weakness
In forcing
A smile

Scary woods
Don't consist solely
Of scary trees
Don't judge me
For my heritage
See who I
Despite my origins
Chose to become

Into darkness
By memory
Of light

In dealing with
Thank you
For helping me
Survive another week

What may not yet be right
Can still look
Better than before
Dressed in
Periwinkle shades of night
Softened in the glow
Of a new moon rising

When in doubt
To be sure
I break it first

Draw lively patterns
Standing out
Amidst the endless
Uniform tracks
Of those
Without dreams
