Roles“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts”.
It is true that the words were once said
Of a learned bard that
‘All the world’s a stage’.
We humans are merely players upon
The stage of life.
Yet, had you ever considered
Which parts you play?
Every person is the centre of their own show
But only a side act to everybody else.
Perhaps you are not one to
Discover gravity or find a new energy source.
You may never get into history books,
Never truly be remembered.
It may be disheartening but just think…
You could easily be a sideshow
That ends up inspiring the great artists.
Maybe you were the teacher who
Taught Einstein how to count or
Hemmingway how to write.
Maybe if you were not alive now,
It is possible that the human race
Could die out thanks to an invention
That you didn’t inspire someone to create.
Think of the peo
GravediggersPlowshares of bone entwined in small buckets of teacake, shadowing smiles going through the day,
Each taking turns for the doing, counting each broken heart with a cup of sweet lemonade,
Laughing for silence has no place, such a time like childhood to those with no hope for they
Are but asleep in the graves, drowning in gentle stares diggers still go about gathering crystals,
From the ground deep inside these fallen spirits….
The ShieldMore pain, more pain,
this way it's all you gain.
Forget about that frightening gaze,
use the fire, blue-eyed mage.
No more, no more,
there's no point like that to roar.
Even if the fear will daze,
remember your courage, blue-eyed mage.
Be brave, be brave,
bow-man can't shoot you to grave.
Forget about the suspicious haze,
trust in the shield, blue-eyed mage.
Don't fear, don't fear,
the danger's nowhere near.
Your courage will be your defending cage,
feel your strength, blue-eyed mage.
Not Enough...I bite my tongue, it's begun to bleed
Every painful word is but a seed
A thought, confined in my head
Because I do not wish dread
Or pain within your heart
So I try to be really smart
And bite my tongue, bite it hard
These hurtful words, I will guard
But despite everything I do
Some of the hurt still leaks through
Through my mouth, to cut you deep
These hurtful things I tried to keep
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you so
You say I lie, and then you go
I should have bit harder, this tongue of mine
Perhaps then, I would have had time
To calm myself down, and say sensible things
But I lost control, and pain is all *that* brings
So next time I'll bite harder, let not a word slip out
Maybe then, you'll see what my pain is about
Dragon's Bane sneak..Silver metal gleaming bright
Lit by the sparks of heavenly fire
The stars so high
The sky so black
The knight clad in bronze
That cursed soul so dark
And black as the moonless night
And cold as the winder winds
He draweth the blade
So deadly and cold
To slay the dragon
So noble and bold
The Dragon’s Bane,
Cursed in the fires of the forge
Fires so bright
Lit by the dying spurts of flame
When I WriteI write for the deaf
I write for the blind
I write for the ones who've lost their mind
I write for the rich
I write for the poor
I write for the ones who settle the score
I write for the angels
I write for the sinners
I write for the people who will never be winners
I write from the heart
I write from the soul
I write from the body that makes me whole
I write to the sea
I write to the sky
I write to the people who say goodbye
I write when I'm happy
I write when I'm sad
I write when my worries are driving me mad
I write in a notebook
I write in a journal
I write where I know it's forever eternal
I write for myself
I write for you
I write for whoever reads this through
Take In The SoundWhen the rain pours down
I take in the sound.
Wet feet on wet ground.
With tears all around,
a smile is found.
I see hope in the darkness,
and love in the cold.
There is peace in the chaos,
and calm in the storm.
When the rain pours down,
I just take in the sound.
My wet feet on the wet ground.
Their tears all around,
but my smile is found.
When the rain pours down,
just take in the sound.
MaskThe mask you wear so no-one can see
The evil within that smothers thee
You portray to the world only goodness and kind
Behind closed doors the mask reveals what’s behind
The torment you bestow will surely one day
Catch up to you and tear the mask away
Exposed and vulnerable with nowhere to hide
When the real you is uncovered as the mask starts to slide
The abundance of layers that build up your mask
Only conceals the wrong-doings of your present and past
The love you portray is just a disguise
When all is uncovered, you’ll meet your demise
Your life of betrayal which you never own
Like a boomerang will hit you and you’ll be all alone
The lies, the deceit, the trail of despair
When the mask starts to crumble, you’ll be left standing bare
So heed my words, yes you in the mask
People already have questions to ask
You think you’re protected, but soon you’ll be found
And the mask you now wear will crash to the ground
Question, HereWhy does everything have to be this way?
Why can’t we root for each other,
and live for today?
There’s kids dying on the street
but we can’t come together
to save each other
every sister and brother
should get their due chance,
or as many as they need
to pull up their pants
and get their shit together.
If you ain’t got nothin’ nice to say
don’t say nothin’ at all,
didn’t your momma teach you
to love and accept,
maybe then we’ll all have some respect.
DragonIn my lair that you have found,
Shattered swords lie upon the ground.
Priceless treasures, centuries old.
Dwell amongst crushed bones and glittering gold.
Ancient secrets thought to be lost,
Are yours to keep but at what cost?
Countless knights and heroes have tried in vain,
But they are the ones who have ended up slain.
You face me now, your sword held high,
Little do you know your end is nigh.
Your bones shall become part of my horde,
Where they will remain for evermore.
Oh foolish boy did you truly believe,
That you of all people could defeat me?
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
