ONLY A MEMORY

 

 

A fireworks display burns bright

For a short time before flickering out.
Leaving no trace of itself behind,
Only a memory of its fading glory.
Such is our time on earth.
It can be short and sweet.
It can be sad and painful.
A brief time to leave our mark behind.
We must use this time wisely.
Make it dramatic.
Make it memorable.
Make it everlasting.

CLOSER TO THE BLUE

I sink deeper with each footstep,
Bringing me closer to the blue.
The blue green water sways
Beneath a blue sky so true.

A fantasy worth remembering.
A dream worth keeping.
Take me back to the shore,
I long for so much more.

My world is so bleak.
I can’t get to sleep.
I gaze at the soulless streets
And never fall asleep.

If I close my eyes tight,
I might see my paradise this night.
It will take me back to times
When everything was so fine.

A LONG HARD ROAD TO FOLLOW

A LONG HARD ROAD TO FOLLOW

 
 

The road at times feels long and tiring.
No end in sight.
Only hardships along the way.
When will life turn around?
When will it get better?
What lies at the end of this bumpy road?
Are there rainbows and trumpets?
Or a long drop into the dark water?
I’m hoping for the rainbows and trumpets.
I don’t want to have to swim against
the dark currents any longer.
