Today I feel the need to write
Castrate my thoughts and words
Today I feel the Intensity of lots
As walking in heels on bumpy slots
Knees jerking upon tight buckled knots
Plying a lonely road miles from the North
A vicarious expedition for hopeless ones
Words Inked from the heart, travelling like a kite
Gracing grubby walls of black and white

Today I feel the need to Read
Embrace every word and to their meanings heed
Today I desire to take a lead
Champion my present and my past, free
From doubts and disillusioned drills
Squeezing out the colours of my dreams
I live to judge every word decorous and prim
Subliminally or dangerously extreme
Serves yet for tomorrow a foundation from obsolete bricks

Today I feel the need to think
Awaken my mind and to my life, breathe
Today I desire to take a sip
From a goblet of acrid substances
In its unsweetened and merciless sting
I remain a prisoner in the city of my thoughts
A true perception of life it may bring
That to hungry souls every bitter thing is sweet
And to the fool, every sweet thing is a tool!

“Today is yours to shape. Create a masterpiece!”

  1. this is good!
    good books makes for introspection and that births change…but sometimes we can be caged in by our thoughts and need to break free…and therein comes the savior- the pen! we write and let it all out and hopefully we feel better…
