Targeted

My position plays me into

A description only few

Can mark of

Tender memories

Pleasant anomalies

Programmed

For a consumption of life

We are handed a target

And it’s our job to find it

In action

So is it up to me to hit it

Or do I commit to just viewing

What meets my eye

In a simple try

To hold onto my ego

Is it most reigning in my past

Or is it always set in the future

How true it would seem to me

To be always challenged

Seeing where I might be

Shall I let go of what holds me back

Or is it leading me into a place

That I once met with the dice?


Resilience

In hopelessness Is the power to reform

My thoughts

Creating what I want to think

Is the best way to live

Determining what possesses me

Cures me of my fashionable

Invisibility

I love so I stay strong

With God

He pushes me to the edge

With infallible questions

And persists I dig deeper

To institute more inspiration for the future

He says, “today is over, so prepare for tomorrow.”

And in this I find peace

That meets me with passion

To exist

This is who I want to be

I am this

But I cant see today

Maybe tomorrow I will discover what I am


You take me out of the depths of despair

 to stir in me

what clearly reassures my abilities

as splendid

I’m writing day and night

For what seems to be right

Hoping to monument my sight

Of what was once a fright

With all my might

Can I take me to new heights?

All of me being in a flight

Of what was once that created my plights

Also created my abilities to forgo my next insight

Offer me a tight

Hope and let it soar in quite

A satisfaction that makes me tell satan to bite

Me in this new light


The dark brings the solstice

In terms of equating

Something innate

As much the same

As sacrificing one’s pain

Recollecting messages from above

Never comes from pleasure

But in much measure

Is the reason

Im afforded appeasement

You think your power is great

Let me tell you

In such a maze as these days

Creates

Such time is met

In bed

On the other side

Of what content is

So much comes to mind

In what is greater than I

I hope you lose this

As faith finds you

In new attire

From a place much higher

Resembling a taste that cures

All projects

This I now marked as

What was once

Complacent

Now seems adjacent

To a fact of rhyming

And skimming

I say much comes in an art

Same as dying

The dark brings as much glory

As the light

Without what blares

How do we dare

Counter what exceeds

To meet our needs

This is why I talk to God.


You toy with my emotions

And you say I love you

As if you need me

Now I see

You don’t know what you want

You play with me

And say you’re beautiful

But you don’t even know what it means

The words you use seem to lose

Context the more you use them

Lay them in front of you

And lets just see how they cling

To something so wrong

You decide you don’t need me

My life isn’t what you want

To care about anymore

So much fun it’s been

Wasting my time

 You and I

Never even arguing

But now it’s come

Time to rescue myself

From what you call

A love

Today I see your words

Mean much less than your tongue

Stresses

If I cared more for you

I would find

More shared memories

should I hold onto you?


Encouragement

You leave me begging

For endeavors met

In snow

So cold it is today

Waiting for you to come

How do I have fun without you

Tugging at me is what is new

Yearning to be someone so true

To who I am in my dreams

Smiling at myself

Comes the stream of hope

Never out of scope

But in the power of my will

Encouragement

Comes from the sun

With rays of days

Met as one

With the beginning of time

Come to me and inspire me

To sing again

Bring your warmth

And shower me with forgiveness

It is only you I want

Remember this testimony

Is regarded as the rays

From what tells me the truth

Without you I have no passion

So much courage it takes

To ration my time

In perspectives in sight

With what might make me

Into marvelous

Take me to your depth

And create in me

The wealth that I want.


I rest my case

So many objections

To what you say

On one hand your modest

And the next your laying

Out acquisitions as if

With haste

Can you commit

To steering clear of all doubt

And manifesting your shout of disapproval

In a different way

You’re insane

For thinking

 That manipulating me

Is going to bring

Any resolution

To you.


Recharged

I’m moving and proving myself

As incessantly pleasured by action

My test comes when I’m measured

By my treasures of conviction

So many restrictions come and go

Always pressing me to my scope

Of what was once transforming is now

Informing me to prosper on my own

Never regretting a movement

Sewn within the leaves

Please use this case

As sentiment for your new pace

And let it recover

What was once tethered

Let it be Free To see

That beauty is  In the duty

Of beginning.


Bravo

You’ve won

So many have but one

Desire

It’s to succeed

So many are clueless

What it means

I’m telling you now

It seems to me

That beauty is not

Only in the eye

Of the beholder

It also lies in the

Hearts content

Truly streaming through

Emotions

And the succession

Of pride along with will

Takes us to the next tide

In the ocean

Learning of what makes us a winner

Surely you can see

Is all up to beings

Of aptitude

Testing one’s will

Along with reaching

Beyond what we see

Allows us the dignity to face

Our actions

And withstand pain

To the end.

Until won in body and soul.

Are you a winner?


It’s just a memory

My youth and I do not

Really enjoy your plight

My resonance entails

The bliss that lifts

And sails on a warm afternoon

I’m not sure exactly why you’re so out of tune

These days

But it must be from what’s become

So lost as your voice

I will be here

Once you find yourself again

Don’t lose hope

And remember the fun

Is in the journey.

Good luck.
