Self-Sabotage & Regret

Self-Sabotage & Regret

On a good day I enjoy life like a hippy.

I feel blessed with nature

the earth is trippy

animals are precious and innocent.

I wish I enjoyed life like this everyday

thankful for everything around me.

But things can’t be that simple for me

can they be?

I enjoy life but I also hate it.

I sit there wishing I could be doing this

Well, what if I tried that?

No!

You wouldn’t last.

Harassed by my past

My parents always told me

Don’t waste your time on dumb shit

And just like that

My day up and went

Self-Sabotage & Regret

A day wasted, I’ve spent

Countless years replaying the past

Overthinking is the forecast

Not anymore.

NOT ANYMORE!

White Noise

White Noise

I love the sound of the wind

struggling in the window as we drive down the highway.

Its loud, yes and some people might even think its annoying

but me, no

I think it’s calming, like white noise in the background

Like rain on a tin roof

rain in general

so soothing

like white noise

the smell is so calming.

The world is a beautiful place

I’m so sorry I couldn’t see it before..

I know

I know

It’s a new month

March..

I feel like nothings changed

Although I know that’s a lie.

I know I’ve made progress

And I won’t stop

This year I know

I’ll try harder than the last.

Blah

Blah

Lately I’ve been feeling blank.

Nobody’s home but

you can see a light is on.

Did you hear that!?

Endless days of war,

Tole to tole with head.

Good against evil

Today wasn’t good

Tomorrow will be better…

It wasn’t.

Art of Dreams

Art of Dreams

Good Morning!

Did you dream lastnight?

When we lay our heads down to rest for the night,

Does your mind take you to a place of tranquility?

Do you have nightmares? Visions so scary you may never want to sleep again.

Do you dream about lovers? Past an present both alike for only one thing in common. You

When the sun rises and the birds awake, do you remember your dreams? Do you wirte them down? Do you share with others your experience?

Why do we forget our dreams? How do we train our mind to remember them as they pass and onto the other?

A dream is entertainment for the relaxing mind. Remembering a dream gets more rare as i get older in life, but when i do remember i charish it as if it were my very last.

Neon Sign

Neon Sign

I have many favorite colors,

its hard just to choose one isn’t it?

I love the colors of the mountains

when they meet with the sunrise, and sun fall.

I love the color of the ocean in Hawaii

Crystal clear you can see the sand at the bottom.

The reflection of the sky, white clouds soaring by

Where sky blue meets ocean blue.

I love the colors of a night sky

moon acting shy,

All the stars twinkling despite…

The city lights, beautiful by design.

No!

Nature can’t be compare to a neon sign.

Daily Prompt Question

Daily Prompt Question

This poem was inspired by my Daily Prompt Question

What do you think happens after this life?

Afterlife

Nobody really knows what exactly happens after death.

Everyone has theories, stories, beliefs.

Still, no one really knows.

What happens after this life?

Do we turn into birds?

Chasing the horizon.

A bird, a new soul?

Do you think we will be able to look upon our loved ones?

Walk along our childhood streets.

Will they look the way we remember them?

I believe that after this life…

I am in my most sacred place I could ever think of,

and I watch my life as if in an interactive movie.

In paradise…

looking back at all the things I’ve done with this life.

Good, bad, everything, especially the moments forgotten.

The moments left unsaid.

The moments that loved ones cherish as well.

Nobody knows what happens after this life, but we all wish for the same thing.

Peace, and paradise.

This is a new thing I am trying to keep me focused on writing and posting everyday.

Trapped Inside

Trapped Inside

I feel like a cry

I need a good scream.

The kind you’d hike up a mountain for,

Be careful not to slip.

I crave a release

An escape from the devil inside.

If you dive deep enough, do you think we can drain him out?

The river flows,

Poisoned.. contaminated.

“If you were gone imagine how much better you’d feel”

The water runs black, no end insight.

I can’t ever remember a time when the river ran clear.

Filthy with toxins, hate, and insecurities.

I went for a swim and never made it out.

Drowning.

Suffocating.

Trapped.

Nobody to blame for my own insanity but me.

Locked inside my very own hell.

My head.

How do I get out?

How can I make it stop?

The current is so strong,

I know.. it’s wrong but the river, it’s just to strong!

I’m trapped inside.

The real me.

The one with hopes, and dreams.

She’s drowning.

Trapped by the blackened river.

Nobody can help her,

Only I can help myself.

The journey to the end begins.

Stop being trapped inside!

Glisten

Glisten

Her skin so shiny

like the sun reflecting off the waters

it looked so soft

like silky sheets hanging off.

how come I don’t glisten?

Never mind,

I didn’t mean it…

it’s just sometimes—

I feel so defeated.

Looking at her

then at me

If you had to choose one

it wouldn’t be me.
