Casual

We peer out the window
See all the other traffic flow
Life flies by like, “where’d it go”
Once a child, now we’re full grown
Responsibilities stack up
How do you see the cup
Half full or half empty
So much to be distracting
Everyone vying for our thoughts
Questioning everything we bought
They call it research invading our privacy
Seems a little off logically
We watched movies about aliens invading
Never thought my life would be probed by agencies
So many thoughts, so little time
We all now walk a fine line
Nobody can make a gesture
Without feeling a ton of pressure
You see the conspiracy
Then everyone says you’re crazy
What if they just pay attention to the reality
A lot of what is considered real is fake
All for entertainment’s sake
When we witness a rift
We should see it as a gift
Because we need those that are different
The same ol’ same isn’t change
A continuous spiral of doing the wrong things
Gatekeepers trying to keep the truth out
People think it’s nonsense since it isn’t their doubt
Round and round we can go with discussion
The plot twists and ideas of separation
So many try to define differences that aren’t there
Making you numb to the feeling of wanting to care
Everyone wants their wealth to multiply
Yet their thoughts of others only want to divide
Command and conquer is one given tactic
It’s sad that many want to embrace that bracket
All these headlines are a miserable racket
Nothing we should hear if we want cheer
Just because we are in a different year
Doesn’t mean we should accept everything
There is still right and wrong in our living
Laws exist as does violence
So why does protection get met with resistance
Wrongful accusations are becoming persistent
Trying to create a dialogue that isn’t coherent
Yet still many believe everything they see
Instead of taking the time to learn correctly
There are many manipulative strategies in marketing
Hooking the minds of individuals unpleasantly
Think how it is you decide
Where have you gone on this ride
Are you comfortable enough not to hide
Can you allow yourself to express what’s on the inside
What is it that has dominated your focus
Are the proper things getting noticed

Late Nights

All of these late nights with thoughts in wonder
As the world around me is falling down under
Innocence has been plundered by the acts of sin
When is it that correct progression can begin

The darkness of these late nights consumes actions
People thinking they can pursue any satisfaction
Nobody wants to admit what drives this insanity
Since many make profit off of all of this calamity

Treachery also happens in the daylight
But nothing can deny the sleepless late nights
The mess of stress influencing the rest
As we awake again the next day to try our best

Constant flow of information out in the air
Plenty to antagonize our mind with so much flair
A sensation to race at a pace that is strenuous
Leaving us tired and at times oblivious

We need to pay attention to the focus of our sight
There is much to consider as we lay down at night
The more we know the sadder it all seems to be
People getting fooled into thinking their life has no meaning

People crave control, but when we sleep our body is in a lull
We’re absent of consciousness, yet it still operates in full
With the choices at hand what is guiding the way
What drives us to make the most of our day

Look in the mirror and analyze the mind
Give yourself a little face to face time
Circumstances come and go in various capacities
Are you honestly aware of the truths in our reality

Absorption

We shouldn’t be careless in our actions
Trying to chase down a false satisfaction
Look around you and analyze what’s real
Then proceed to favor the proper deal
Laying in wait never hurts the growth of patience
It’s better to be sure than to regret a mistaken experience
Chin up and eyes ahead looking to the forefront
So you can proceed with confidence through any stunt
Life is full of surprises by now I expect that you know
So don’t be afraid to take what you’ve learned to help you to grow

Suffering in silence

How we handle emotions differs
From one to the next we grow more flexible or stiffer
Some of us hold them in and others let them out
But we all share the same feelings of doubt

How we each grieve changes from one to the next
They say time heals all wounds, but it also continues to wreck
As we age more loss ensues all around to me and you
Many of us still trying to learn what exactly it is we should do

How to handle the situations and experiences each day
So that we can continue to excel in an efficient way
Progressing in our lives rather than remaining still
So that we can reflect a strong courageous will

Buried beneath the surface lies an echo of silence
We all suffer from something even if you may not see it
There’s no need to be ashamed since many others feel the same
After all this life we have isn’t a game

Fighter’s Spirit

Some identify as a lover or a fighter
We can fight many things heavy or lighter
As the darkness grows and time passes
Death is one thing certain for the masses
No matter the difference of opinion
That time will come to end the mission
There are many things to prepare for
We do our best to achieve more
Slow and steady may win the race
However it can be tough to keep a smile on the face
As trials and tribulations persist
It can prevent success appearing on the list
Our plans don’t always come to fruition
No matter the amount of education
We embrace different things
We witness different beginnings
Nothing wrong with fighting for love
Trying to continue to rise above
Battling the many adversaries can be rough
But without testing how can we become tough
The motivation to move on isn’t always there
Many lose the drive to continue to care
Life isn’t fair we all know this
But we still strive to experience bliss
Fighting the physical can be detrimental
But fighting the spiritual is monumental
Whatever comes your way and proclaims war
Do your best to conquer and roar
Don’t stay silent waiting to die
There’s a reason we’re given a lifetime
Find and fulfill the purpose
Because fearing death isn’t worth it

Embrace

Complexion and perception are unusual characteristics
Thoughts that drive the emotions of differing logistics
No matter how hard you may try you feel inept inside
Struggling with how you view the image you portray on the outside

Some of us don’t cut ourselves any slack
Expecting perfection when nobody else even has that
Utilizing every chance to enhance certain aspects
Rather than giving ourselves an ounce of self respect

Fighting with our own views
In such ways that others have no clue
None of this should come as news
Since we’ve all suffered a pinch of the blues

For some reason many times compliments fall to the wayside
Due to the sheer amount of disbelief someone holds in tough times
We’re all in some way shape or form tied together with experiences
Since everyone has encountered judgments that were serious

What we see in the mirror is made up of more than just that image
There are far greater explanations and sensations that produce the vision
Everyone reacts differently to what it is they see
Considering we all think and operate uniquely

How it is we react and contemplate
Will determine what kind of life we create
Each moment introduces a new opportunity
With the future waiting patiently

What will we do differently
Does change even need to happen, not necessarily
The context with which you view is up to you
Just don’t hesitate to be something great by missing the lessons of what you’ve gone through

Self

With all the media and text you consume
The final decision of what to believe is up to you
The wisdom and intellect that gets relayed
Ultimately depends on your heart and mind’s decided pathway

Sometimes facts are presented, but plenty is unexplained
Lots of questions are formulated for us to figure out each day
Behind the layers of fear, is your conscience clear
Is this something you can accept, will you maintain self respect

Words and letters swirling like a tornado
Engulfing our thoughts sending chills down our torso
What will determine your next choice
Will you speak up and maintain your own voice

Don’t let the abundance of pressure sink you into depression
Contemplating decision after decision just leaves you left wishin’
The storm shouldn’t determine the outcome
Your presence is needed to be present in every situation

Show yourself that you care and become aware
Wake up to life and don’t imprison yourself in despair

Disjointed

It’s quiet time in my heart
An unfamiliar feeling even from the start
Back in the times where memory doesn’t exist
I imagine it was still filled with bliss

Questions continue to arise
With no sense of answer in sight
My mind races intelligibly
But the rotation of this world keeps me away from assembly

Electricity seems to carry a greater power
Everyone connected to technology hour by hour
Various resources at our finger tips
Still not many thinking for themselves, just instead accept ignorance

My pulse still shows mountains to climb and valleys to fall
I’ve seen so many things, but I doubt I’ve seen them all
I’ve heard so many things, but I doubt I’ve heard enough
With each passing second there is someone out there whose life is rough

Actions are being taken causing various effects
A lone man here with so much to say, but why do so if it doesn’t protect
A predator lies in wait for its prey
However, I’ve chosen to rest in silence and pray

There’s strength in numbers, it’s no false tale
So why do we separate the togetherness to make us frail

Decades

Three vastly different journeys
Each life is something truly unique
Two approaching and one beginning
The third and fourth with plenty of planning

One has started his third set
The other approaching that same set
Myself, I’m ending the era of the twenties
Approaching the years that will now begin with a three

My two oldest nephews, one who is twenty the other eighteen
So close in age, but experiencing vastly different scenes
As the one begins this next set of ten, we’ll see if he truly is a gentlemen
The other nearing that realm of adulthood has a lot of choices waiting ahead

Three lives in different significant states
All with sights on the future ahead to be great
We all have a link to which we can relate
However the way we carry ourselves differs on this date

Each of us encountering a difference in circumstance
With our lives having significantly different plans
Everyone experiences this with those they hold dear
As you hope the best for them as well as yourself each and every year

They say these years are still considered young
However what ultimately develops before it’s all said and done
Comes from these years that society tries to paint are for fun
Importance of improving our knowledge should be at the forefront to obtain further wisdom

The lives ahead for each of us
Need to be lived in a way that’s a plus
The negativity all around is more than enough
We three will hopefully continue to rise above

Signify

There are times when you have plans
Wondering if what you’re thinking can be executed by your hands
Those thoughts of doubt and excitement sway this way and that
Then comes along a sign that signifies you need to step up to bat

When life throws you curves you need to remain on a straight pathway
Distraction looms off in the peripherals with the doubts of yesterday
Time only moves in one direction, so should your progress as it gets tested
Having lofty goals or high expectations of yourself isn’t necessarily negative

You just have to know how to handle the disappointments
Failure is bound to happen at a given interval, but that’s relevance
All aspects of the journey are of utmost importance
You just have to be willing to make the adjustments

Don’t hesitate to turn what’s sad to glad
Being able to always decipher the good from the bad
Because that which makes you mad isn’t viable
And not everyone close to you is someone reliable

Those closest can tend to be the biggest deterrents
And you don’t ever want to truly be selfish
But sometimes you need some alone time to improve your methods
When that time comes execute at every given second

Analyze all of the relationships
All of the hypocrites
All of the intelligence
And all of the significance

Which is greater your fun or passion
Your greed or compassion
Your pleasure or progress
Your money or success

Whatever you think should come next
Don’t hesitate to put your efforts to the test
Allow yourself a chance to fulfill the plan
Because if not for you it may never have the legs to stand
