“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Outcast

take a cup

and join the fun

drown yourself in

all the pressure

takes its toll on

what you are

you’ll even say a

prayer

but words don’t mean a thing

when you don’t believe in what

you’re dreaming of

you are watching from the outskirts

one foot in

the other out

you could follow

you could even be

the leader of

the messes of the day

but what would you become

what no one wants

when no one

cares

words don’t mean a thing

when you don’t believe in what

you’re dreaming of

you are watching from the outskirts

one foot in

the other out

what are you waiting for

the waters don’t part anymore

it’s either stay or

go

words don’t mean a thing

when you don’t believe in what

you’re dreaming of

you are watching from the outskirts

one foot in

the other out…

Untitled

with your eyes shut tight

and the book held close

you walk the halls

and appear to most

a religious fool

an overzealous man

but you keep on walking

and you let them stare

your lips may move

but no words come out

and they all wonder

what you pray about

and they hope the God

they don’t believe in

will listen if you’re

praying for them

you sit outside

and watch them leaving

and listen to their

silent suffering

and they laugh at you

to hide the trembling

and they whisper

so you cannot hear them

your lips may move

but no words come out

and they all wonder

what you pray about

and they hope the God

they don’t believe in

will listen if you’re

praying for them

Japan

Life can overwhelm

All the different faces

The critiques that come with them

And the ever-changing smiles

The mindsets of millions

The styles of billions

Up and down

Like a rollercoaster

And we are just spinning in circles

Anyway

But we thrive

Fashions come and go

Some should never have come

Our cars get bigger and better

Our minds get smaller and smaller

Or so it seems

We eat

A lot

The food never stops coming

And when disasters do

What??

We lose sight of hope?

Of pity?

Of peace?

The screens are watched

The people panic

But from over here

It’s a thought

In the back of your head

Sometimes you remember to pray

Sometimes you forget

There are others out there

Beyond a haircut

Beyond a music video

Crying like children

Some of them are children

A wall is being built

A tall one

Of loving people

Of helpers

Of those who care

Whether we join them or not

That’s our choice

What do you choose?
