Her Mirror (2017)

Written 12/13/17

When I gazed upon the earth, I became her mirror. She and I were one of majesty. Man carved across her flesh like a lover with violence and greed. His desire for land was cruel, a territorial possessiveness an experience Earth and I shared. 

I looked at her veins exposed and naked, I recalled the whispers against my scars and browned skin. The earth and I shared this experience.

We were beautiful with every crevice and fold, a landscape of stories to behold. The majesty of a weathered skin, a lifetime to experience every sin. This we shared, from every vein and scar across our flesh.

The earth and I became each others mirror. 

Potential (2016)

Written 12/01/16

"Potential"

Potential is the cruelest gift. 

What lies in the power of my hand

What lies in the power of my words

I could be a King or a misfit

With the talents of a garage band 

Or grandiose dreams of city birds

I could bring life or grant death

A possibility that I choose to ignore

When time provides more choices

Potential is in my breath.

It's the star of my show and bore

And the chorus of narrative voices

These moments of a cliché story

I can choose good or bad or nothing,

Why limit when there's a universe

Potential is life's glory

The meaning and reason of anything 

It's a vital reason choice is a curse 

Potential is power given to us all

So I wonder about why

I have the burden of potential
