THE DAY THE NAMELESS NO ONE REALIZED

The day the nameless no one realized
His primary dream would never flower:
Heart wrenched with pain, tears sprang from eyes.
Depression blossomed, overtook where once resided power!

His primary dream would never flower!
Still, he feebly pushed though soil was bare!
Depression blossomed, overtook where once resided power!
The invisible gods made him feel the full force of their despair!

Still, he feebly pushed though soil was bare!
Heart wrenched with pain, tears sprang from eyes.
The invisible gods made him feel the full force of their despair!
The day the nameless no one realized…

MY PATIENCE HAS RUN MILES

My patience has run miles!
Now it is threadbare, exhausted.
Kindness pushing through, forced smiles;
Teeth gritted with words unsaid.

Now it is threadbare, exhausted.
The journey continues! No blockades in sight.
Teeth gritted with words unsaid.
Permanent fog! Psyche dims with plight.

The journey continues! No blockades in sight.
Kindness pushing through, forced smiles;
Permanent fog! Psyche dims with plight.
My patience has run miles.

THE MILES RAPIDLY SHIFT, ACCELERATE

The miles rapidly shift, accelerate!
Yet, the odometer of the senses remains stationary!
Life hangs; just out of reach through the windshield. Fate?
Sculpted potential further insults me.

Yet, the odometer of the senses remains stationary!
But, I am ever-moving, aging, trying!
Sculpted potential further insults me.
She smirks, sneers and promises while lying!

But, I am ever-moving, aging, trying!
Life hangs; just out of reach through the windshield. Fate?
She smirks, sneers and promises while lying!
The miles rapidly shift, accelerate.
