Uncertainty

During my time in the resistance I realized the truth.
When you’re thrown into the space of uncertainty,
You must push yourself to the next degree
Then I assure, you will emerge with the wisdom of a sleuth.

The Search

0507_library-books

Like the two searching for knowledge in the Garden of Eden
I sit here in this library, immersed in books.
Although my mind has not yet found freedom,
The search rages on, as I continue to look.

Perfection

strive-for-progress-not-perfection

When you look at this situation, you say that it’s my fault.
So from now on, I’ll take your words with a grain of salt.
Everyone has bad days and everyone makes mistakes.
So I’ll just do my best and try to grow,
Because I’m the furthest thing from perfect,
Like everyone I know.

Radiance

muse

Sing to me oh muse
So that I can delight in the truth
Remind me that with knowledge,
I can never lose.
Unlike the betrayer that doesn’t make a sound
Allow me to shine like the Sun,
That comes from behind the clouds.

Dare to Dream

dreams

I fell in love with her the way you enter a sweet dream.
I didn’t know how it started or how it was going to end.
All I knew was that I was happy and I never wanted to wake up.

Acceptance

acceptance

I’m lost in the night
I’ve been stuck there forever
Seeing all of these faces
And with none that I can remember
I’ll keep my issues to myself
And try to survive without any help
Because this feeling of sorrow is one I can’t escape
I’ll put my head high and surrender to my fate

The Path

path

When I reached the bridge I was stranded to the side
I looked across the river beyond the reach of Death
It was there that I saw my shinning knight
The sight of her face replenished my health
So I took a deep breath
Then followed the seven lights

The Sage of Ten Forces

The Sage of Ten Forces

The Sage of Ten Forces took my mother away.
He said it is the law that all things are impermanent.
Despite the fact that I begged him to let her stay,
He looked me in the eyes
Then swiftly took her away

Planning

chess

When I tried to conquer the world
In my rose colored glasses
The universe laughed
Then took me for a swirl
I kept my head high and braced myself standing
As I glared at the angry people gathered in masses
Thus, I will never forget the power of planning
Then the world will glow before your eyes.
