Not A Happy Women’s Day Kinda Woman

c56f06d99127262c3c9b06feef3a0724

 

Don’t wish me a happy women’s day,
I don’t need it or care for it.
I don’t deserve it neither should I have to.
I am not a woman who has given up her dreams
To fit in a man’s dream
Or sacrificed her joy for everyone else’s,

A Simple Fact of Success

3897feb70cbc3c0e18e4da57726dadc7


She never had much luck or intellect,

No gifts, no artistry, no legacy,
All she had was some fire and some fight,
This underdog was a dog with a bite.

Said we all do things wrong
Until the day we get it right. Continue reading “A Simple Fact of Success”

Someone For The Sunrise

Not a neophyte anymore,
I have been around for a while.
My eyes are deep for they have seen life,
They have seen the storms and the sunrise.
When you are stuck in the storm
Without a sailor or a soul to guide, you realize
You alone and on your own are enough,
And after a few storms I figured
I never needed anyone for the ride. Continue reading “Someone For The Sunrise”

How To Not Be Lonely Together

So often so many are so lonely
In a world full of other lonely people,
How is it even possible to get so lonely
When everyone wants to find someone
How do they not find each other?
I guess I know how.

Strutting around like the studs we are not
Looking to find someone who understands us
While never really showing who we really are,
We each hiding in our own special closet,
These closet of our fake identity behind which
We are all alone, humanity becomes a lonely species.

Hamster Wheel

Leaders with their theatrical smiles,
Cloaked eyes and mechanical voice,
Renegades and their muffled noise 
Saying something,
Unveiling something.

Sorry! too busy to look up,
Too busy to rise.

Always something important to do 
In our important fast paced lives ,
So we keep running in circles
Like a hamster running on a hamster wheel,

Dreams Depreciate

 

I went to the pawnshop
Offered my dreams as collateral
Pawnbroker showed no interest.

I tried to tell him that they were
Perfectly good dreams,
They could give really good returns
To someone who can pursue them,
I am just not in that place right now
Surely he could offer a decent value against them,
I am good for it!

Why Now?

53b1d2564c9d2558c7ff1fecbec508c7--fantasy-photography-conceptual-photography
When a heart turns numb and love is gone
No electricity to light up the darkness
No heat to keep you warm at nights
Tears won’t soften a heart like that
Smiles will stir no feelings in it
No words you can speak
No songs you can sing
No apologies you make
No flowers you can bring
Continue reading “Why Now?”

Force Of Nature

Barbara_Majcan_Photography_Editorial_Art_Conceptual_Red_Winter_Fashion_Lady_03-1620x1080

Delicate hands
A feeble frame
Dreams too heavy for
Her shapely shoulders
And a penchant
For running into
Troubles and turmoil.

Synchronized To The Drum Beat

009c6c5687a480c1ebe97a8664efd4c1--conceptual-photography-creative-photography

 

Thoughts, dreams
And all things innate

Synchronized to
The drum beat

Plastic dolls marching
In a street parade.

Do gooders, revolutionaries,
Free thinkers,
 all aligned
To form their respective lines. 

Continue reading “Synchronized To The Drum Beat”
