short and true

If only we all understood that God truly is good.

When God hands you God

The day that:
I finally realized You were who my parents always said You were.
I let go of culture, my sense of right and wrong, and the loop holes to my sense of right and wrong.
I surrendered.
I took my first real breath.

On that day, everything I ever knew was smashed to pieces, and I began to rebuild myself with You in the center.

It never made sense, but I never felt this sure about anything before that day.

little secrets

who is the desperate man at my side?
I have to remember the sparkle in me
doesn't make me GOLD
but this cold bath feels more real
than the ocean ever could

The whole world is diamonds

Teach me what it's like
to sleep outside
there are beasts
that envy my fangs
I was so wicked once

The whole world is diamonds

It's all just memories
of the last time you felt
the leaves on your face
you were once the bravest man
but look how your life shakes in your hand

The whole world is diamonds
just take a look at it.

No matter what they tell me, it's not just a brain and it's not just a heart.

my RED RED RED ____

Every fault I find
are mine
I found them in you
buried deep
beneath all the good
that you keep
when I see them in you
I prod them
I stick them to you
and you will never be free
but every sin I latch to you
I latch to me

Was I born to break them down?
Or is my heart exactly where it should be?

p.s. I have given up on proper poetry. I no longer feel the need to fit my feelings into guidelines that only govern but do not enhance.

Oh please.

Turns out you weren't made of stones.
Every moment that I thought you were there,
you were somewhere else.
I'll never forget what you did for this family,
nor will I forget what you did to it.
You have shattered my world and now I must look
to someone else for strength.
God, You must be everything. Immortals can't bleed.
Stand strong where I could not. Please stand strong.

when we get there

When we get there
I know I will smile
The final destination
To know that there is no more
no more running around
no more planning
just loving and laughing

When we get there
I will dance to a song
with deep basses that beat my heart
with trumpets that move me
with strings that vibrate my bones
with pipes that bring me to my knees
with a never ending crescendo

When we get there
I will finally be happy.

The thought of never having to worry about anything ever again is more than I can bare.
I will always love this planet but my heart does not belong here.

to lil wayne

dear lil wayne,

Firstly I would like to start by saying you are a scary human being. I'm not comfortable about my generation as a whole because of your overall success and your overall creepiness.

Also I would like to say I am quite ready for you to fade away. I'm tired of hearing your auto-tuned voice on every single song that exists.

Aren't you supposed to be in jail? You had like a ton of illegal guns and silencers in your possession. I never thought I would be ready for a human to go to jail, but you bring out the worst in me.
