I like meditation. It's not something I do for religious reasons; I just find it soothing. But sometimes, this breathing exercises "breathes" new life to thoughts we thought buried in our minds. This poem speaks of such a case.
I wasn't sure if I had written and/or posted a poem called "Fallout" earlier. I've tentatively named this one "Fallout II" as a consequence, but it could easily be a precursor title of what's to come in the text. Consequence must be spoken. Things that are unpleasant are too often left unsaid.
Forgiveness of self is an empowering tool, both for ourselves and for those around us. Here is a brand new poem by yours truly. 🙂
A 5-7-5 poem I wrote recently. I wasn't sure about it after first draft, but I took a liking to it on further reviews.
This poem sprung out of thoughts in my head after leaving a recent party. The poem does not rhyme; it just tells the story of my thoughts.
Politics. How tiresome. And yet, it needs to be mentioned every now and then. Don't forget to go out and have a beer with those you disagree with (Conservative, Progressive, and all the others that aren't mentioned)! Can't we all get along?

Figured I'd go back into the vault and repost one of my oldest poems. There are a lot of good ones from the blog's early months! (New poems are scheduled for posting this weekend, promise!) I wrote this one a few years back when I was feeling a little more down and doubtful about my place in the world. It is our responsibility to constantly revisit the dark corners of our minds and accept who we were, who we are. While these thoughts are not mine now, I had serious doubts when I wrote this. This poem is inspired by the classic poem "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Dylan Thomas, which was featured in the Christopher Nolan movie "Interstellar". I hope you enjoy this poem, but remember: don't let the darkness within yourself grab a hold of you.
I am at the crossroads, that gray area of insecurity between the guidance of atonement and the solution of absolvement. Every action leading me through the haze has led me here, enduring the peaks of both my shame and ugly necessity. Everything is never as it would seem, as none can self-steer, stuck in constant … Continue reading Untitled
The path has been set, carved deep into the stone; that of paper by the writer's pen that paves the mind. No room for regret may remain to master the tone that postures the way progressively for my own kind. I cannot make a choice only to shirk and change it shortly; any consequence cannot … Continue reading Choices and regret
