Some birds are born free
And any assistance to thee
Would cage them from all they might otherwise be
Some birds only know their cage
Never a passing thought they’re the same
As those soaring on a different plane
Some men seek to stand behind
A woman flying with no greatness to hide
Only to hinder her from reaching her greatest height
Some men break the bars
Becoming a ramp to the stars
Tearing the cages apart
To these men
I implore you, listen
Empower your women
You may build a tower
Around your beautiful flower
And she’ll never shine brighter
You may release the dragon
But until she knows it her life drags on
She needs to find the fire in herself to be strong
Some girls are born free
Some girls only know their cage
Sometimes you must leave them be.

Only then will some birds discover what they were created to be.

Lately, I’ve been seeing too much of you
Honestly, I’ve still got time to kill too
And I suppose I’ve nothing better to do
So let’s hash it out until we’re through
But even after I’ve come to hate
This person I can’t help but debate
I can’t escape, when my mirror shows your face
And your limits are bound to mine as if it were fate
One of us has to be wrong tonight
But that makes neither of us right
Neither I nor you have a clue, but still fight
And all it accomplishes is tearing apart our mind.

The rain is dreary
It’s leaving me sleepy
And as i start dreaming
The drops throw a party
In the place for parking
As rainbows are arching
Played like vinyl by lightning
And thunder rumbles lightly
On the dance floor nightly
Drops step until the sun is rising
As I find myself waking
A thought is captivating
Nature is frightening.

I know more Atheists that pray
Than it is worth the time counting
Hiding in the haze of mystery
Their numbers quickly growing
Willing to speak a firm amen
After the fervent prayer of a saint
Because they want the blessings
Without knowing the God that gave
Falsified religious belief
Strong enough to convince themselves
But never practicing what they preach
Still expecting to avoid the flames of hell
Like they fear punishment
More than they believe in it
While they adore their own ideal of heaven
They are unwilling to put the effort in
To changing the world in which we live.
Wolves in sheep’s clothing
Are more common than you’d think.

Christmas at GFS.

Posted: February 2, 2014 in Other Poetry, Poetry

It’s Christmas time at GFS
The freezer is in such distress
And I’m blaming that on Jukiewicz
Jeff showed up unexpected
To hand out holiday well wishes
Tim got us some sandwhiches
Just like the good housewife he is
He’s keeping Farkas whipped
Mopping in the crypt (between the “coffins”)
While Josh is passing gas (There were beans on demo)
Next to his girlfriend at mass
Or so he said he might be
Before he clocked out to leave
And Sam T and Stevey
Can’t stay away even on Christmas Eve
Danielle didn’t sing,
but she did ring
Like a fire alarm in pain
Checking out loads
Of last minute customers in droves
Amanda was slicing Bologna
Like a ninja cutting nonsensical stories
I never claimed that GFS was sane,
Yea, we’re a bunch of characters
Every Alice has a Mad Hatter

Merry Christmas,
We’ll be “normal” again next month!

A National Holiday

Posted: February 2, 2014 in Holiday Poetry, Poetry

It just isn’t Christmas without love
No matter how much you bundle up,
Hats, boots, coats, gloves
Lacking a warm heart you’ll never have enough
It isn’t the gifts that make it merry
It’s the interaction of family
And friends that make this a national holiday

This year
Holiday Cheer
Isn’t knocking at my door
As I gaze deep into a mirror
I realize how alone I am here
And I find myself longing for more

My dear
I fear
That we belong together
As this haze, a holiday smear
Easily forgotten because no one cares
Drags on without you, and leaves me sore.
