Writer's BlockI had a dream of writer's block
A dream in which my mind was stuck
On words like verbs, and terms like f*ck
And how my head deserved a knock
And in this dream I was quite vexed
I was so mad I was perplexed
I couldn't think of what came next
Nor how to finish up my text
I begged my words to understand
I begged that they come on demand
I couldn't bear a pen so still
That couldn't move by my sheer will
Yet on deaf ears befell my pleas
And this fact brought me to my knees
So I left a prayer on the breeze
I pray to write with ease."
I Met Peace OnceI met peace once on an afternoon stroll
"Walking too slowly" - my eyes said with a roll
And with peace was contentment, who said I looked old
The gray hairs on my head, were a sign he'd been told
So I paused for a bit, to give a piece of my mind
And happiness caught up - she'd been lagging behind
"I would love to chat, but I have no time"
I said in a rush, before in she could chime
And off I went, well on my way
Lest not another bugger, ruin my day
I was here to loose weight, not to chat or to play
And those three looked fit, they would lead me astray
So I picked up my pace, till my muscles did burn
But all that I got, was a cramp in return
And as I sat panting, anger asked me why
worry came to cry, and shame made me lie
While peace, contentment, and happiness...
Slowly passed on by.
Alter EgoAlter Ego
Scared but helpless
Bound and gagged
Within you divided
Bottled and stopped
Anchor to my heel
This need to conceal
The way that you feel
If you put up a fight
If your burden was light
Perhaps we would not find ourselves here...
Dear FinchI have waited quite a while
To send these words to you
Though in my mind, it always was
A thing I ought to do.
For once upon a time you filled
My every night with wonder
And even still I miss those nights
Those dazzling nights of yonder
Perhaps a cat so full of angst
Had no business with the sky
Perhaps a magic rainbow finch
Must spread its wings and fly
So fly, fly! To greater heights
I know you couldn't remain
I only ask that now and then
You fly by me, again.
The Land of Milk and HoneyIn the land of milk and honey
The natives act real funny
The leaders steal their money
To invest it in poverty
The rich keep getting richer
The poor keep getting poorer
The wise think not of better
The dumb all rise to power
In the land of milk and honey
They practice democracy
For the people, ostensibly
To decide to live in misery
The government - is in shambles
The senate - how they babble!
Education - mere preamble...
As for NEPA - just light a candle
For in the land of milk and honey
ALL ARE DRUNK!
Love AcrossIf all you've got
Is a pen and paper
An email service
Or instant messenger
And all you want
Is to love somebody
Far far away
Far far away
All you need
Is to express those feelings
Share those thoughts
Help them see
Your love across oceans
Love across nations
Love across stations
As a possibility
Beneath These Murky WatersA burnt wasteland
Glistens before me
My head above
Two feet below
I inch forward
The landscape shifts
The landscape shifts
Now every step
An obscure risk
These murky waters
While The Dust SettlesThere is always a trial
When dust takes flight
The common man's plight
For parched are the lips
And stale is the bread
And faint is the voice
With which secrets are shared
There's nothing like idleness
To make a tongue wag
Till nought is a mystery
And all is commotion
While the dust settles.
Today you mock me,
Staring at me in a grey demeanour
Pelting my frame with your stones
Today you honour me,
Showering me in a wet confetti
Laughing and crying like a drain
Today you comfort me,
Soothing me gently with easy breezes
Lulling me gently to sleep
Today you berate me,
Stormy and wild as they come
Howling your passionate fury
Someday you'll leave me
Taking your whims to some other lad
Leaving me uncertain;
J'ecoute vibrer cet invisible.J’écoute vibrer cet invisible.
Invisible et secret, cette voie vers le cœur.
J’entends vos ailes en frémissement d’un ange.
C’était l’hier où vous étiez encore aux langes,…
Et puis, les mains au ciel, vous guettiez le bonheur.
Les cordes tressent le destin en transparence
Où Dieu n’est que ce salaud qui n’est jamais là
Quand l’enfant souffre en son être, et bien au-delà;
Dieu n’intervient pas, même pour les apparences.
Dieu ne fut jamais que rumeur venue de loin
Qui pourrissait le beau, l’amour et le sublime.
Un Dieu crucifié n’est jamais qu’une victime
De celui qui l’abandonne en père et moins.
Demain je me marie,… mon frère s’est noyé,
C’était le mois d’avant qui gonflait la rivière.
Tu es belle mon cœur et tu es ma prière.
Peut-être le destin s’était-il fourvoy
Nothing LeftMy chest is burning, burning, burning.
My lungs are turning blue.
My vision's blurred, all color gone,
But still I swim for you.
You're worse off. You need my help.
But still you swim away.
And so I swim into the Night,
Abandoning the Day.
I'm getting slower. Slower.. Slower...
You seem to increase speed.
And so I fight to follow you,
And give the help you need.
You don't look back, despite my call.
You can't hear my silent scream.
I feel my body start to fail,
And watch you swim upstream.
My lungs are dying, dying, dying.
I desperately need air.
Although I know it's killing me,
I cannot help but care.
I keep fighting, but you won't stop,
You seem to like the pain.
And here I die, and start to fly,
Before I could explain.
I'm slowly flying, flying, flying,
Up toward the light of Day.
The water's gone, the air is sweet,
But I wanted to stay.
I tried with all I could to help,
Compassion's my Achilles heel.
I lost myself trying to rescue you,
And prove the danger's real.
My heart is singi
The FairyShe stands beneath the willow tree
With wings of darkest forest green
A fairy new having just born
For she has died the day before
The wind blows gently at her feet
The crescent moon lights up the street
Hovering gently by the wall
She is invisible to all
In The CaveIn the great cave of color
Hidden out by the sea
You'll find not another
In this ocean of green
2 flowers grow
And a blue skull grins
They live there alone
The rocks have them pinned
And the cave walls glow dim
Like a rainbow near out
But in this cave so dim
It will never die down
A Thank You to the Past GenerationsThough limbs go frail and senses start to fade,
As time keeps marching on relentlessly;
Despite the fact that memories are frayed,
There’s sometimes still a well of history;
Not quite as sharp or strong as in their youth,
But disregarded not should be their speech;
With values of respect, hard work and truth,
Pay attention – they may have more to teach;
The world we live in moves at such a pace,
That sometimes it is nice to slow back down;
Though to the future we will always face,
It never hurt to stop and look around:
To those who came before let’s give a cheer,
If not for them we’d not even be here
Star ShineWalking on a beach, you can feel like
A single grain of sand or a fish
In a shoal in the vast blue ocean
And you might walk until the sun dips
Toward the horizon and wonder
What is even the point of it all?
‘There are over seven billion
People and most will be forgotten
Myself included’ you might well think
But before you turn back to go home
For a moment look up at the sky.
There are billions of stars up there
They light up a little patch of space
And although all of them look the same
They’re still wished on like they are special
Whenever you feel like you’re nothing
Important, look up at the night sky
And try to make your bit of space shine
Grab the FutureGo and grab the future, for it belongs to you
Only you can make it, do what you want to do
Tomorrow is a blank slate, try to wipe it clean
It’s time to show the next act, time to set the scene
Perhaps you can be better, than what came before
Start making an improvement, achieve so much more
The past will surely crumble, dust turning to dust
Turn towards a brighter future, now we all must
Life is a mountain where you only reach the top
When you feel like it’s enough, and decide to stop
Who knows what’s at the summit, if you go that far
Perhaps it is a place where you can touch the stars
Eternity BeginsAs you flip through the book of my life you will see,
That not every part is sparkling clean,
Though I look like a good girl,
I'm corrupted within,
Because even the good ones are chock full of sin.
From the moment I came onto Earth it was destiny,
All of my wrong doings lay out in front of me.
In a catalog,
Were the sins I wanted to be,
Rating from "This one feels good!" to "That's best for me!"
I ran on pure happiness mixed with adrenaline,
Living without my sin stunk in comparison!
But as the days wore on I felt a slight change,
All of my emotions were then rearranged.
I suddenly realized it felt worse to wallow,
Wherever I went my sin surely followed.
I lived in the darkness and stumbled around,
I had no hope that I'd ever,
I tried to keep going but eventually stopped,
I sat on the ground and let the sin drop,
On my head so it soaked me in eternal rain,
Nobody was coming to get me again.
I had not a soft or bright comfort to turn to,
I had no hope I'd get out
I have sinned against thee, oh LordI have sinned against thee, oh Lord
Kim J Schirmer Oct 4, 2013
I have lived a life full of joy and sorrow
I have looked behind me and wished for tomorrow
Many things i have done and many things i should have done
Prizes have slipped through my fingers, but few trophies I have won
I come naked into the world and I stand now before you, oh Lord naked still
My arrogance is gone, my hypocrisy exposed, my stiffed neck has been stripped of its will
What I want is naught because thy will be done as on earth as is in heaven
my bread is without salt and without leaven
I see past the hallowed memories of youth and with age do I feel the full weight of regret
My dreams are frightful, my Heavenly Father, of strange warnings I worry and fret
I cannot see past my nose, I cannot see through the fog, I cannot see, I cannot hear
Gather me once again, into thine arms, whisper comfort to ward the fears and tear
I strayed off the path, running after butterflies and flowers that were short lived and
Until He ComesThe second coming
Is not a warning
To dwell upon
Until His coming
Shall we be waiting?
Our Lord's return!?
Our task is given!
It has been written!
We have a mission!
That must be done!
To shine our light
Make the world bright
Present this sight
As his welcome
For when Christ cometh
Though no man knoweth
In faith we soweth
We faithful ones
Think not of when
Think not of where
We must prepare
Until He comes
Keep in Touch!
