Cancers of Stress

It was settling, calming, coming to a stand still,

Life was getting easy, should have known too surreal,

Thunder came, and down came a shudder and rain,

A chill ran down the spine, and the world brought on the pain,

A family broken by drugs and a conqueror of greed,

A busted love, A busted heart, one defeated sent to knees,

Screaming in vain, filled with blame, praying for a better change,

Going insane, feeling drained, wasted youth oh what a shame,

How can the progress in this house made of stone,

Burdens of family stressed, how can they move this along,

Without courage and strength, are they destined to fail,

Surrounded by screams and chants of words like “go to hell”,

Outside hope, they see as their only way to prevail,

But the only contact anymore is via text, call, and voice-mail,

Because stranded in a search for a better life, is their hope,

All wishing it would come faster but life just says nope,

But their hope, as fast as he can, continues,

Till the day he’s able to come back to the rescue,

So they can move on to the best of life’s happiness,

But until then this family suffers in life’s cancers of stress.

Lost

I’m lost out here on the road,

And it seems I have No where to go,

I’ve lost it, I’ve done lost my mind,

I’ve lost the past,present,and future; I’ve lost all time,

I reach for the sky only to grab the ground,

I tried to jump up but I only fall down,

I show only smiles, but I only feeling frowns,

I’m a real good swimmer,but in my tears I drown,

Happiness I want, but for me it can’t be found,

Married to sadness; it’s got me locked-down,

They say don’t be so serious, well I’m a sad clown,

I’m like a beautiful song without the sound,

My heart still beats,but it’s more like a pound,

My pain’s never-ending, no edges, it’s round,

I tried to break free, but it seems I’m well-bound,

It’s a kingdom of pain, and only I can hold the crown,

But I guess all in all I’m stuck on this road,

And it seems that I have no where to go,

But slowly as I start to find my time,

I will slowly start to find my mind.

LMAO “New Reality”

My mind is gone, yeah it’s on the fly like the travelosity gnome,

Head leaking with gutter bound thoughts so I bet I bust,

Like when the girl hit her knees my nuts blown,

All over ya lips, I guess dats me saying hush,

The days to long they say, but I’m in no rush,

Hour nah that’s not the beginning trust me,

We headed for the the morning rush,

Going to work , well that maybe a possibility,

Trying for a record well call Guinness,

Because time is not a factor to consider,

No time limits here we finish when we finish,

A new schedule dat’s what you will have to configure,

Bedroom living dat’s what we will call it,

Now dat ya know are ya ready,

Make ya body shiver so much think ya an alcoholic,

Bet you bust not once but repeatedly,

Best night  of ya life yes definitely,

No regrets dats what we will live by,

anytime anywhere dat’s your new reality,

tears maybe but only in happiness will you cry.

A Story Worth Talen

The fear of death is one that many possess,

A fear coming in the making, Thus I digress,

I have been to the edge but I never fell,

Thus thru this life I get to proceed with a story to tell,

No fear will I ever let hold me back,

Continuing to run my life on the right track,

Why should I fear the future or regret my past,

Anyone who proceeds this way will surely be the first to finish last,

So pushing my strengths and squishing my weaknesses, I will prevail,

Invisible to the rain, the sleet, and the hail,

I’ve set my goals well beyond the sun,

The light shining upon my life line until it is completely spun,

So thru this time I will surpass all space,

Whether I reach the stars or become the silver-lining across the milky way,

I will always proceed with on my face this grin,

Well beyond what many in life consider the end,

So I ask what fear will or have you let hold you back,

And I challenge you to grab those future fears and pass them into your past,

Because only with the success of many do we truly prevail,

This is the story I wish our lives to tale.

Rocky Road

It seems my whole life I have been on this rocky slate,

Maybe it’s meant to be; Maybe my life has a rocky fate,

Because it seems no matter what, I stay buried on this rocky bottom,

And as these rocks begin to pile up, it seems there is no stopping’ em,

So with the weight of the world on my shoulders I walk along,

Stacked up high I tote these boulders,but I carry on,

Steadily I struggle out here on this rocky road,

But even with this mountain of stones, I request no one to share the load,

Why would ask one to share this mountain of pain,

It’s fine for me because I now only have gravel running through these veins,

But though I have a gravel battle sweat never will I let this heart become stone,

Instead I will grind this mound of stone until every bit of the pain is gone,

Because even though I am consumed by this Iron ore,

Within me I will always have this molten core,

And with a heart of passion burning through I will survive,

Because there is no rocky mountain I can’t Breakdown and climb.
