ANOTHER EXODUS

Being born, We die from the life before we lived, That existence within our maker, But time transcends And towards the light we fall, Swept along with an ignorance of the future And a tire of the past, The Exodus arrives And the tunnel ends Hands engulf, Drawing us into a plebeian existence Where breeds […]

I Smile

I smile To break the silence, I smile To deflect the darkness, I smile To wake the day, I smile To kill the fear, I smile To steady the tears, falling, I smile To remind myself I can, I smile To remind myself of all that can be, better, I smile To find the joy, […]
