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.

-N

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,

Nothing and Everything

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.

I Decided To Travel

I decided to travel to the endless seas,
I wanted to be everywhere there was to be
Before the time runs out.
One day I will end up in the ground
That’s when I will settle down.

Mysteriously Brooding

So why does it burn,
And sting in the darkness of night?
In my bed, I twist and turn
Reciting my regrets and fears
Like a sadistic poetry.

I Am The Train

Like life, like a knife
Like air, like water,
Like snow, Like fire, like time,
I am not good neither bad,
I am just what I am.
I could be loved or hated,
Welcomed or fought,
It’s all ok with me,
It’s all the same.

This Time When You See Me

This time when you see me
Take gentle steps, walk towards me
Slowly and intently.

How long I will have waited to see you,
So when I see you let me see you,
Let me see you see me
With that love in your eyes
That you once saw me with. Continue reading “This Time When You See Me”

Warm Forest

tumblr_nlz3k3Zc151t96d7to1_500

Cheap whiskey
In a coffee mug,
It doesn’t taste great
But It feels better.
The pounding in my head
Is softer now,
The emptiness in my chest
Less heavy to carry,
The days less difficult
To survive.
Oh, how I tell you
How I want to run away
From life itself,
Continue reading “Warm Forest”
