Oblivious, by MwsR

Once upon a day,
My heart began to sway.
I couldn’t tell whether to try
Or give in to an obvious lie.
I wished upon a moonlight sky
Without any particular notion as to why.
Inside I started to feel myself unravel
It was like a kid skinning their knee on some gravel,
Oblivious to the blood that starts to show
But knowing that it hurt a slight bit though.
Content though to ignore it all for the play,
We adults also do things this way.
Not noticing or taking heed to the scars and marks
We keep getting hurt the same each time we embark.
Till one day we fall down and something clicks
Maybe it is the words, or maybe the licks.
We finish our story in a twist
Like suicide can result from cutting your wrists.
Permanent and final it will be
When it’s over or you mend
There will be the end.

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate

To know that for destruction ice

Is also great,

And would suffice.

Greatest Woe by MwsR

Sometimes the things that bring us joy

Bring also trouble and pain

Thoughts we had planned in our heads

Make us weary when they are changed,

Some of our greatest woes comes from that

While we are weary they alter our peace

Peace that we had until then

Our greatest woes often come from the thinking within

Sadness robs the happy man of control

He loses his smile and joy, when he tarries so

After all, what are smiles but upside down frowns!

More than not people live life in the past

Meaningless attempts, because nothing ever lasts

Why not live like there is only today?

As the saying goes, “Learn not to expect and you’ll never be disappointed.”

If we cannot achieve what we want,

We will settle, much to ourselves, its a loss

If disappointment can be a challenge,

Sorrow will come in yielding the sword that can kill.

Trouble will accumulate and bring with it his friends

Our life will be like a hostage, to that

Hope is not bad but it gives false security and bliss

It clings to our dreams and even our obscurities

It paints a false illusion,

Unless with the hope you can carry knowledge

Knowledge that things can alter at any moment,

And then after you collect your new perspective on things,

You can then come to a different hope.

Constantly re adjusting,

Forever changing,

Our greatest woes are defining

Just don’t let them take charge

Find ways of adapting, changing, and thinking.

Then our greatest woe won’t defeat us.

Frozen by MwsR

Can you feel it?

Can you feel it way down deep?

Or has it haunted you in your sleep?

You have become numb and changed

The pieces that were once limber are stiff.

Why is it that we stay on that frozen cliff?

Too many things have been affected

Your goals and your visions have become neglected.

It’s as if your own soul has been rejected.

You can no longer see clearly now there is a haze

You try to get back what time tries to erase

When in all actuality you cannot continue the chase.

Waiting for that one rock to knock you and shatter you into many pieces

Hoping that the Sun will warm you and bring you back to living

Where once breath was inside of you now you have nothing that’s giving.

You are frozen.

You are frozen in time.

You are frozen in time because you have grown cold.

No spark has left no flame will burn

Until this curse has risen

You need to realize what it is you have to give and how much more of your life you have to live, just listen.

You don’t have to be frozen

Time doesn’t have to freeze

You can avoid being cold…

The spark is there it will ignite the flame

The curse will rise and you shall remain

You can give and continue to live.

Excerpt from my book, “Heart Stones”, by MwsR

I am not special by any means

But I have a heart and yes I bleed.

Don’t try to use me or hurt me.

I do not like that, you see.

Though I am but nice I am too

I will make you laugh t time when you are blue

I do like animals, of all sorts

I love wearing flip flops and a pair of shorts.

I feel things deeply although, it can be a curse

Sometimes it hurts and can make me feel worse…
