In Hiding

I loved a man and then I lost;
And now I have to pay the cost
Of life alone in Solitude;
A constant dark’ning of the mood.

It’s not the loss that I can’t face
But haunting mem’ries of loving days;
So filled with lies and subterfuge;
T’would make another want to lose.

Perhaps I trusted much in haste.
Now I stand amidst the waste,
Trying to face reality
And slay the dragons to set me free.

But still I’m bound with all my chains,
While I’m learning to cope with all the pain
And this agony I feel inside;
But there is no haven – I cannot hide.

The Beauty of Simplicity

With the gentleness of a stirring breeze,
I am awed by the simplicity.
In God’s creations, all but one
Can live in harmony under the sun.
But God’s most complex creature is doomed
To live amidst the strife and gloom.
Ambiguous, they thrive on war;
They kill each other and then keep score.
With no respect for nature’s neutral state,
They fill the world with a cancerous hate.
Destroying everything they meet,
The human race will face defeat.
And once they’re off this planet Earth,
The world will have a wond’rous birth;
For nature conquers over all;
T’would take a lot to make her fall.
She’s learnt to live in harmony
And the death of man will set her free.
She’ll bare her soul so all can see
The beauty of simplicity.

A Defining Moment

There is a defining moment in everyone’s life,

When we see things as they really are.

When the veil of confusion and darkness is lifted

And Truth stands before you.

Blinding you.

It will not be ignored nor pushed aside

It cannot be denied.

Eyes now open, they cannot close.

Truth may blind you, it hurts you so

But there’s nowhere you can go.
