What’s Trending

image

The other day I asked a teen, what political party he found most convincing
Instead, he went on about what was new and trending
Nowadays we walk around like zombies, staring blankly at a screen
Following Twitter and Instagram post about the latest thing

When was the last time you picked up your head, to see where this country is headed
But we follow each other’s Facebook feed, I really just don’t get it
We miss out on things that really matter, trying not to miss what’s trending
Information without value but still we keep pretending

Sign on to life and not your Facebook, unlock your mind and not your screen
Not catching up on the latest thing
So pardon me, if I don’t know what’s trending
I guess, my original question must still be pending


Starting New

Starting New

image

Every time I fall, I remember success is followed by failure

Life is brutal and impartial, so it’s not just me in particular

In A world of things forever changing

Starting new is something I’ve gotten used to, this is me venting and not complaining

When my journey is at end, I’ll be starting new once again

Life is full of new years resolutions

One simple but yet complex solution

Starting new with each adventure we take

With each minute decision I might have to make

Starting new is task we will all undertake


Spoken Word Poem | Different Times

image

Expections the same, In different times

How we have failed to evolve, it blows my mind

Somewere, a kid is being forced to go to college

The explanation we’re given by our parents is, to get get a good job, you have to get the knowledge

But what they don’t tell us is, there are college graduates working at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s & KFC

We live in different times, is what we consistently, fail to see

This is a monumental mistake, that has cost us dearly

As the financial bubble were in, continues growing yearly

When it burst, the harder it will send us crashing down

Like a wingless plane, where headed towards the ground

We need financial education in schools

How to build your own business, you know entrepreneur tools

We have to break a endless cycle, get out of the past, prepare for the future

Do not be programmed by others,  a walking computer

Have your own vision, unlike the walking blind

Realize, we’re living, in different times

One Last Time | Poem

image

I want to be with you, dont ask me why

I want to hold your hand, under the starlight sky

Trust me baby, just one last time

I love you woman, thats the bottom line

Take a leap of faith, as we watch the falling moon

An aproaching apocalypse, we’ll soon be doomed

War, lust, poverty, inflation, drugs, capitalism & greed

One last time, can please have peace

Take a trip, some place we’ve never seen

Do all those things, we once could only dream

So until our clocks have failed to wind

Can you do these things with me, one last time

I’m Going On A Diet | Spoken Word Poem

image

I’m going On A Diet

Five words at the start of the year, people often say but never do

We start, but but do we make it through

Im going on a diet

Not just physical, also a metaphorical one

So I will be stopping the things, that should not be done

No more late night snacks, or ice cream cones

No more lying down next to my telephone

I’m going on a diet

Can’t stop now, I have to much to loose

No more waking up and pressing snooze

I’m counting my calories, while cutting back

That means friends and family, who aren’t on the same level im at

I’m going on a diet

For a sense of mind, some piece and quiet

If this is what you need, you should probably try it

Forever 21 | Spoken Word Poem

Forever 21 | Spoken Word Poem

image

There isn’t an age more sought after than this

Some would say forever twenty one,  is as good as it gets

Children spend there childhood chasing this number

While adults get plastic surgery, to try to look younger

I guess forever twenty one is as good as it gets

It’s an age all people are anxious to hit

Why we cant stay this age forever, I really dont get it

The one year that we do have, we’ll just have to live with

I guess no forever twenty one, at least not in this Lifetime

I’m just thinking out loud, these are thoughts in my lost mind

Spoken Word Poem | The Future

The Future

image

I sometimes glance upon the stars, in a wondrous gaze

And think what will my future be like, in life at this pace

Will i champion my dreams, and achieve the impossible

While on the road to success, as i maneuver through obstacles

As young children, we tend to often dream

Though the odds to prosperity, are more viable than it seems

We’re discouraged , by cynical people

Naturally, I try to circumvent this type of evil

The future for me is bright and prosperous

Although it may be apparently obvious, what does the future mean to you

Will you challenge yourself, as if you have something to prove, or act as if you have nothing to loose

Like it or not we are the future, our sons and daughters, nieces and nephews

Are monumental pieces, to a bigger puzzle

Encourage them, nurture them they’ll be destine to flourish

The future we build, will be what there world is

Motivation | Poetry

Motivation

image

There are few words more powerful, than the one we call motivation

It’s what keeps the gears turning, on what was once a thriving nation

It’s what inspires few to achieve what others only dream

When you put your heart and soul into your work, then motivation can be seen

It shows, were bigger than the obstacles, that tend block our path

Sometimes motivaton, can be the material things we have

But i believe most importantly, it’s the love we have for others

For our spouses, dads, moms, sisters and brothers

It’s what turns ideas into actions, love into passion

I guess if you summed it all up in one word “Motivation” would be one hell of a caption

Domestic Violence Poem

stop-domestic-violence

This is about, more than just another headline, for mainstream media

But domestic violence, and the emotion, it continues bringing up

It shouldn’t be spun, for political propaganda

Instead, finally get victims, to fight back and stand up

Be a message of empowerment, for young woman growing up

To reach out to broken homes, and say the world will show you love

For the woman, afraid of going home, that live in battered woman’s shelter’s

Life can be much better, but we must choose to clean it’s filters

Football Season Poem

rsz_football-season2014

This is time of year, that is long awaited by fans and players 

It’s when we get to see behind the scenes, peel back the layers

When loyal fans get to know the results of a long awaited draft decision

To see your quarterback improve on accuracy and precision 

You see running backs precise and elusive, while breaking through tackles

This is the time of year when players are set free, from off season shackles

Welcome back to the game of passion, enthusiasm and aggression

Take a seat fans and players, football is in session
