Nothing More, Nothing Less

 

Love is nothing more,
Than the beauty of giving (all you can)
So that they can live.

Between The Lines

 

The quiet is as deafening as it is frustrating.
Blank faces with nothing but blue streak running across their cheeks,
With vacant stares, they express their desires.
I can read between the lines.
They mock me:
“Fill me”
They quietly whisper,
Knowing full well
That I can’t.

Round 2

When it is all said and done,
The path has been lost
The fire has died and the embers are cool,
When the hand is unsteady
And your confidence is as solid as a sandcastle with the tide rolling in.
When the light that once shone bright has grown dim,
And the passion seems to be gone,

Begin again.
Start small.
Take your time.
And begin again.

Best Before

 

I’m going to break convention for a moment. I haven’t been posting as much, life has been busy, and I haven’t been on myself to write as much as I should be. But in the meantime, I did recently have the opportunity to perform at the Living Arts Centre/Mississauga Arts Council’s Best Of Open Mic Night. So here’s a clip of one of my performances. I’ll get back to writing and posting soon.

UPDATE: So since I can’t actually post videos to my blog yet, here’s the link

 

V.F.D

 

The day after the storm,
Where the winds have turned to whispers,
Wiping away the last of the tears from the trees
Who bore the wrath of heavens.
The chirps of warning the day before have become
Songs of comfort for those who were frightened;
There is no longer reason to fear.
Flowers bloom and greet the sun above.
Creatures appear, surveying the landscape.
The grass shrugs off the aftermath — collateral damage was minimal.
The stillness in the air is of peace,
Creation no longer holds its breath in anticipation.
It’s over.
The world is quiet here.

Respect the Moonwalk

I believe that sometimes,
Things just won’t go your way, and you,
You just have to be okay with that.
I believe that Michael Jackson
Was one of the Baddest entertainers to ever Thrill us.
Do Your Remember the Time he made You Wanna Rock
As you watched him dance like a Smooth Criminal?
And while some thought it was Off the Wall,
Others knew it was just his Human Nature…
