Flawed yet Infinite

3017f034432413.5605fd6c997f6

Transient hearts and faces,
Frames made of clay
Cracks in many places.

People aren’t usually great,
Greatness is in the ideas, the deeds, the creations
Created by a flawed human race.

We were flawed before we did something great,
We were flawed when were doing something great,
We will be flawed after we have done something great .

No need for blame or guilt, flawed is the way of mortals,
A child forever, Ignorant, dependent and fragile,
Flawed yet infinite in their potential to produce greatness.

That’s How

In it with all that you are,
All that you have been, and all that you will ever be,
In it with all honesty, of both facts and feelings;

The Book

living my life as many different versions of my self,
Every version poses a different personality,
Different manners and movements
Even the faces are slightly different.

Meaning In Abyss

286813266019201

 

We have been told life is a certain way,
Seldom they tell us why of it all.
We fall into the abyss of meaninglessness
Of this existence that comes from the comforts of the world.
No real crisis, no immediate threats, first world problems,
Continue reading “Meaning In Abyss”

Empty Faces

A Busy footpath in the heart of Dublin

 

I look around me,
And I see so much Sadness.

I look around me,
And I see so much joy.

I look around in crowded places
I look at all the empty faces,

Time

I am a merchant of dreams, a buyer of lives,
You can’t refuse to sell but you get to name your price.
He said, “I will take your life one way or another,
What would you like to die for if you had a choice?”

Nothing and Everything

beach-cliff-coast-164229

 

You learn to swim,
Then you swim so hard to get across the ocean
And you get far, so far, but not all the way across
And you can’t it seems.
You can’t reach the shore
Unless you give up and drown,
Drowning is the final step to that shore.
Humbling and rewarding in one breath,
Such is life.

Died Not Dead

How does an ocean of love
Evaporate
And leave behind a desert?
Those precious nights, those pure moments
When two souls collided in love
A mesmerizing explosion, a supernova
How can they leave behind nothing but a vacuum,
A black hole in your chest?

The Vacuum, the emptiness

Joy rushes in like the air,
