Be Okay

Be okay
Through the darkness
Traveling through a galaxy of lights
Hidden corners waiting to snatch
Little pockets of precious
Shall I stay
Stagnant and staring at the life running
Towards me
The highs and lows of travel
Even the wise cannot see all ends
I stand on the beach, the present
The sea, my future
And I can see only the horizon
The rest awaits my nod
So won’t you please
Just follow me there
I’m not asking for a lover
Just a friend
I think I’m too scared to do it

Darkness Abides In All


In the midst of an internal storm….

the untold stories
of darkness prevail
over widening seas
and Hell’s Deep can hardly contain
the fire of night
waking us up
and bringing us down
we may never know the wholeness of breath
or solitude of sound
for the darkness abides in all
will you let her come around
stoke up the magic within
and burn in and of her glory
let the Phoenix be called to arms
spit lava and pumice upon the world
for poets are the volcanoes
of humanity
and within the darkness we spew
life is born through trials
see the words rise
on the wings of the wind
