EARTH’S SCARS

Birds scratch the earth, but only so deep that tomorrow’s winds erase all trace.Fish glide through the water, leaving only a ripple.None has left their mark on this world like humanity.It will take more than a lifetime of winds to erase those scars.

INTO THE SUN

Into the sun I staredThe longer I gazedThe more cleansed I hoped to becomeTo burn everything downTo lose the past in the flamesTo lose myself is all I desiredThe hope of finding a new lifeReborn from the ashesLike new growth in the forestThat can only come from flame’s touch New worlds contained in a flameThe […]

HISTORY’S LAMENT

If we said goodbye to historywe would close the door on it foreverand all would be lost. Instead we greet it fervently each day,keeping it alivein the hopes of learning something new,something more to advance us. But alas we do not learn.It’s as if history has been killed,stabbed in the back,  dying a thousand different […]

EVEN THE WEAKEST PEOPLE HAVE GREAT STRENGTHS

People suffer from a way of thinking that is not theirs. They have only been told it by the schools they went to or their parent’s. This sets people off onto a path outside of their control where the decisions they make are influenced not by their own intelligence, but by the unintelligent conditioning they […]

Stardust

The folly of youth will never be understood while we are still young. Time passes us by and before we know it, all that could have been is lost.Potential limits us to that which we are told we can be.To reach the stars in this lifetime we build rockets upon dreams without realising the stars are […]
