Live To See Tomorrow

I used to wallow in self-pity, now my soul leads and my heart follows, Associated with truth and poetry like the Greek God Apollo, Determined to make it on my own, my mind refuses to beg or borrow, A minuscule lifetime, Will I live to See tomorrow? Twist a cap off a bottle, Is the […]

Remember Me

I’m dolorous, downcast and crestfallen at the moment, Fighting a never ending war, the man in the mirror is my opponent, Staring at my reflection, face to face with my worst enemy, Rebuilding the Pyramid inside my mind, poetry is my remedy, Drinking Hennessy, Jotting down my feelings to a melody, These notes are my […]
