Our Nature to Believe

It’s our nature to be condemned
Our nature to lose our voice
And forget about who we are

It’s our nature to pretend
Our nature to wear masks
When people are so unaccepting

It’s our nature to resist
Our nature to casts words
With actions to create a voice

It’s our nature to lose our way
Our nature to get lost
Yet find our way in the end

We speak in riddles
Emotions trap us
Fear confines us
Insecurity is our splinter

Yet in the darkest time

We believe in ourselves
Believe we can break
The overthrow of conflict

We believe enough to stand
Believe that standing tall
Sends a message of survival

We believe in holding on
Believe in casting a grip
A quest to see things to their end
We survive in being broken

Stitching our wounds
Mending our thoughts
Breathing gains with losses
An exchange defining balance

It’s our nature to press forward
We believe with each step
We can cast change with hopeful wish

Things can heal and become something more



Eyes crafted
Made of glass
Lost in the past

Breathing aches
Yet awake
Reach ahead
A grasp for fate


Smiles spread
Grins alive
Things we hide

Faces painted
Hanging on
We wear a sheath

Holding on…

Sparking life
Fires spread
Shadows grow
Ties of dread

Pressing down
Kill the pain
Pass the frown


Standing tall
Wind behind
Clouds a spread
Of faith we climb

Breathing steady
Paths led
I stand alive
With word to spread


Inside’s a coat of hate
A list of broken fate
Cast out from my eyes
Across a dreamy slate

Steps, slow and cold
Cares that slowly fold
Inside each desire
There’s only me to hold

As I pull up to my feet
I’m broken in the mirror

Tears can tell a tale
Hopes hanging by a nail
Lost in this abyss
As needs are turning stale

I need a way to stand
Defeat has stained my hands
Never looking back
One step without a plan

A need for something more
I need something again

The crack inside the wall
The cover of my fall
Can’t see or believe
It’s a walk, or a crawl

A shade inside the seam
As my eyes still beam
Looking through the mess
I have one final scream

A scream that’s silent still
The day I lost my voice

Web of Shredded Dreams

A web of shredded dreams
Imprints along my mind
Left as lost reminders
Broken past is there to find

Every breath I breathe
Like a crack inside the bone
Filled with endless pain
A path I walk alone

Tainted hopes, strained desires
Engulfed by loss, rising higher

I feel for the walls
It’s cold and dark
I can’t find my way
Each step without a heart

It’s cold and I don’t care
Broken and I’m bare
I face the world still
And I can’t find my way

Lend a hand so I may see
This is far too much for me
