Bushel

Different shades and different styles
Is the mask you’re wearing really worthwhile
What is it you’re truly hiding away
What is it that you’re afraid of today

Are the thoughts you wish to see excel
Being smothered away because you don’t want to tell
Is the change you want to see
Something you’re keeping to yourself instead of letting it be free

What needs to happen to make you feel secure
To make you feel the voice you have can mature
To be something that can help influence the right progress
What experience needs to take place for you to want that success

If you’re contemplating many ideas, why not share
Allow yourself to show that you care
Life isn’t fair, but we’re meant to help improve situations
So don’t hide away with silence or doubt being a destination

Microscope

Have you ever felt backed up as if you can’t reach out
All of your thoughts are filled with doubt
Looking everywhere for answers and no friends that care
At least it seems that way because of how you’re drowning in despair

Shut off to the world not letting it be known
That the real you is suffering with no hope shown
The façade is doing its job hiding the pain
But how long can you last as it piles up each day

Each second the clock ticks you wonder the next step
Which way is it that you can feel an ounce of progress
Success seems to be what defines us, but the definition isn’t just
You and I both know there is more to this life, but we can’t shake the rust

Time is a constant, no alterations necessary
But it seems to be differing as it is no longer plenty
We can’t explain the transition that happens as we age
Especially when we can’t figure out how to dissolve our rage

As each one of us tries to turn the page, we pause on ourselves
In the world of today that seems to be the key to wealth
After all how can we make an impact if we aren’t right
The answer is easy because nobody is perfect in His sight

Tonight as we lay our heads to sleep
There is still a world surrounding us full of broken dreams
To focus on our problems isn’t what makes us unique
The ability to encourage one another is one of many keys

Unlock yourself from the chains of today
I guarantee you can identify with someone else’s pain
There is something to the saying, “there’s strength in numbers”
We’re all inhabiting this planet for a reason, so why not truly help each other

Submersion

Some people express the thought of genius
As I’m stuck down in the depths of my imagination
I squander certain opportunities, they’re dismissed
Because of personal choice in regards to premonition
Swimming in the never ending sea of resistance
I question the area around me and its definition

I have my air pack unlimited with the breath of life
But I’m still anticipating the inevitable pressure surrounding me
Some choose to cut through to alleviate via the knife
When self harm eradicates any form of personal healing

I strategize each plot without truly knowing what I got
It’s tough to see what all is floating by as I go through
The current has me tightly engulfed whisking by glorious spots
I notice some rot within, but pleased at the capability of becoming new

Replenishing each memory of satisfiable moral standing
I’m left wondering which of those aspects is left existing
Hard to find as much in this world of violence, pain, and sorrow
I’m surrounded by this foreign earth, with hopes of a better tomorrow

I’m embedded deep with the one who has the greatest presence
Yet face a crowd of rejection through various injections of dissonance
It’s hard to save that which doesn’t want to be helped with aid
Though the grave is looming beneath despite whatever it is you are paid

I’m submerged in this ocean of fantasy, trying to gasp at the graces of reality
My spirituality has me lifted as each day I awake is one that is gifted
I’m still surprised at the eyes of beauty, which leads so many to lives of tragedy

Seeking what you don’t have because of want
Doesn’t fulfill the needs that pull you out of this liquid
Going about life in a manner that is nonchalant
Won’t get you to that paradise of greatness you once depicted
