Dead Third Eye -Break Through-
We've shed so much
to grow anew
yet some things never change;
you're still you, through and through,
only adapting to age.
A growing body, a growing mind,
but inside, a constant self, a constant memory
Never knew before,
never quite understood why.
Such a dead third eye.
The memories never change.
Some fade, but the darkest stay.
Only an obstruction stands in the way.
Why cover a veil with a wall?
A second layer won't eliminate it all.
The physical body is shed naturally;
shedding the soulful self is voluntary.
Never knew before,
never quite understood why.
Such a dead third eye.
No walls are up to keep me down.
I'm breaking through, picking at the pieces,
shedding the self to shed some light.
It's been a long crawl out of the cave,
but I've finally escaped, with brand new sight.
A chase begins, a hunt pursues, new walls arise.
Break through! Break through!

Lunar Connection
Billions of eyes have witnessed the moon up above.
The moon we see is the same moon
that men and animals have looked up at thousands of years ago.
Even the dinosaurs have seen the very same thing!
Hear me now:
I know the world can feel like a big place,
but we’re not so far away.
Time and space are only relative.
Look up at the sky.
Do you see the moon?
So do I.
Let us gaze at it together,
and we shall feel close.

Literature
Inside and Out
As glamorous as she may have looked on the outside
it never covered up her ugly insides.
The layers of fabricated beauty did nothing for this dull soul.
She wished for someone to love her, but
eyes saw nothing, thus
voices said nothing, and
hands touched not upon her.
If a sweet flower is doused in a bitter essence,
it too will become bitter.
She does not TRULY have a dull soul;
if a loving hand could reach out to hers,
she would call him "Sun", for he will have lightened her spirits,
and made her blossom once more,
inside and out.

Then and Now -temporary title-
I’ve taken many steps in life; steps toward great opportunities, steps toward situations that could’ve turned out better; some steps were simply spontaneous and pointless.  Tonight would be another one of those nights.  I remember when I used to walk down Sovereign Avenue with my girlfriend every Friday night.  It’s been many lonely weeks since then.  
Spring Roll Garden – our favourite place to grab a meal after a long night of drinking and dancing.  We liked walking with arms locked; we did it of course because we were so in love, but deep down we also knew it was because we were always a little too drunk and tipsy. Walking arm-in-arm was nice, but once we got close to the restaurant’s front entrance, I’d detach myself from her to hurry ahead and open the door for her.
I’ve become completely detached from her now.  More than I would’ve liked to be.  In fact, aside from the mo

The Ways I Love You
There’s nothing I would change,
there’s nothing I despise,
but if I must, *I* would change,
and I’d tell no lies.
I welcome every moment with you
just as I welcome the new-coming days.
With me, you can fully be who you are
and I trust I can be myself with you.
There’d be nothing to hide,
only everything to share,
only equality to embrace.
I just hope one day I find
the courage to say this to your face.
With random gifts
With words of admiration
With loving acts
With endless adoration
These and many more are
the ways I love you.

Literature
Life in Song
Here’s a [million mile wish] for [three little birds] to take me to [a warm place];
it is indeed a [long hard road out of hell], and there are times when it feels like there’s
[no way out].
The [speed of pain] is insanely slow, and yet
I somehow [did my time] during this [minute of decay].
[When will this end]? [Right now]?
No.
[Maybe someday].
As for now, I’m going [nowhere fast].
At [the funeral party], we play a game called [Count to six and Die].
We are [the nobodies], whom uncomfortably rest in [a place in the dirt],
wishing to abandon this march in [Macy’s Day Parade].  
I may be [one] with those that feel like I do, but I still feel [disassociative].
I’m a [walking contradiction], [hurt], and [bottled up inside].
Throughout the generations of reincarnation,
I hope this is [the only time] I live through this;
this is [no life] for a delicate being to endure.
Sometimes I feel [numb] from all emotion;
but there are days when I feel a lot of differ

Literature
Trip-Out
Psychedelic visions…the experience is a psycho-delicacy.
The colors are deafening, and yet your voice is absolutely scrumptious!
Blotter paper, somewhat sanitary, tests my sanity.
This may not make any sense,
but if I rhymed for a living
I could make some cents!
Shapes shape my environment
yet nothing’s distinguishable…
hell, nothing’s even extinguishable, save the fire.
I watch the embers of the roach glow – Whoa.

Literature
Waiting
Looking for a four-leafed clover…
instead I encounter numerous disappointments;
Looking for an elephant to raise its trunk to me…
instead I get a muddy splash in the face;
Waiting for my break…
instead I’m constantly broke;
Waiting for things to finally go right;
waiting for life to be completely worth living;
I don’t want to be kept waiting much longer.

The Inevitable Cycle
We did not choose to live and die in sync
We're not free as we please like they may think
We stand united all season long
And as our time of expiry comes along
No amount of fighting will suffice;
We will all float down, on the ground we'll lay
And unless we're gathered and tossed away
We will be buried beneath the ice.

Literature
Jupiter
Your swirly storms are quite gorgeous;
you’re a beautiful thing; but
you have as much potential
as water does to ignite into flame.
You’re as useful as a pack of flimsy matches
on a windy day.
All the magic mushrooms in the world
couldn’t get you to ‘turn on’.
You’re surrounded by as much light
as the moon would give without the sun.
Despite all this, among all the planets,
you are my favourite one.

The Depressing Tease
In this blue haze
A surplus of green surrounds me;
But come the yellow light of day
That lovely green just goes away.

Literature
So, What's Free?
It’s a free country,
but you have to pay for housing.
It’s a free country,
but you have to pay for food.
It’s a free country,
but you have to pay for schooling.
It’s a free country,
but you have to pay for clothing.
It’s a free country,
but you have to pay a service charge to access your own money.
It’s a free country,
but for it to be free
you have to refuse paying the rent or mortgage;
for it to be free
you have to beg for food;
for it to be free
you have to drop out of school;
for it to be free
you have to receive donated clothing;
for it to be free
you have to beg for money.
Freedom means no payment required.
Freedom means no consequences for your actions.
Payment is required, and there are consequences.
“Freedom is another way of saying ‘death’”.

A Place Out There
There's a place out there where the fireflies glow
There's a place out there where the butterflies say hello
There's a place out there where the folks are friendly
There's a place out there where the joyful days are plentyyy....
Dear chiiild, run in the meadows
Dear chiiild, don't be mellow
Dear chiiild, life awaits
Dear chiiild, don't be late;
'Cause there's a place out there where the fireflies glow
There's a place out there where the butterflies say hello
There's a place out there where the folks are friendly
There's a place out there where the joyful days are plentyyy....
Dear chiiild, run in the meadows
Dear chiiild, don't be mellow
Dear chiiild, don't be late
Dear chiiild, life awaits.

Relativity
The closer objects are to you,
just as the closer people are to you,
the faster they seem to come and go.  
The further you are from an object,
and the more repulsed (or ‘distant’) you feel from someone,
the longer they seem to stay [in sight].
