Envy

The jealous are unfortunate,
living a life without purpose.
Instead foreign accomplishments
become their source of great distress
.

Longing for someone else to fall,
transforms owned steps into a crawl.
When never choosing to look straight,
massive brick walls can self-create
.

Energy aimed on someone else
is best when placed upon oneself.
Staring inside a troubled mind,
as dimmed darkness tumbles behind
.

Building a new world of comforts
while satisfying one’s own thirst.
Forming a bridge towards ample wealth,
still manifesting vigorous health
.

Brightening up a dampened soul,
gifting it with owned self-control.
Speaking frankly with inner-self,
feeling more pride, loving ourselves
.

Gain

Ripping bandaids
done sincerely
only hurts
a little bit,
yet with lingered
apprehension
it will hold a
lasting sting.


Never laugh at
others tears

or those tears will
soon find you,
feeling joy in
seing sorrow
retribution
becomes your view.


Be the person
you want to see
passing by you
so carefree,
As you dance with
drowning feet
your heart pounds
a different beat.

Nobody

Dancing to
the sounds of raindrops,
while they flood my
washed up shoes.
I can hear as
bells are ringing,
people run to
pay their dues.

I resist
but can not hide
as a tear
reaches my eye.
Sway around
move to the rhythm
of the droplets
falling down.

Failed to stop
I keep on moving
as my clothes
feel like the lake.
Never felt
exhilaration
crash so hard
my body shakes.

Bitting hard
pierced my own lip
thanks to hope
received a chance.
Felt a stillness
taking over
making this
my final dance.

New Year

New year will bring
all that we need,
the blocks unfold
wishes fly free
.

This world will be
healed everyday,
Bringing new dreams

in every way.

Inhaling hope
feeling secure,
allowing peace

to wash ashore.

Replace the old
embrace the new,
positive paths

will come to you.

Rewrite your life
a space in time,
fate on your side

sounds a sweet chime.

As new chapters,
come to exist,
inner strength,
always persists
.
