    The Cell I Call My Mind

    Dark cell with one window, chained to an iron chair.   This cell is my mind.   Those chains are my thoughts.   Free me so I too can look out the window and out on the world.

    I'm not going into tedious detail of how I feel

    within my own head; I'll just liken it to feeling like one of those unsuspecting victims in a Saw movie, it's just ******* torture,lol. But what I'll tell instead in a prolonged dialogue is how it felt for me to... I guess you can call it an 'escape'... from the learned or...

    Enter The Dreamland

    Coloured Glass Pebbles - Fill My Brain

    My mind is full of pebbles, Little glass and colourful, They shine like stars as ideas burst from veins like squirts of paint.   My eyelids are dark and bagged, My eyes they shine out anyway, They see around from sky to ground and create my world of everyday...

    Shadowy Streams

    Shadowy streams,   The water gleams upon the stones that we call home.   Dust and dirt and sand it hurts when blown on parched, cracked faces;   Water for granted and food it's fasted in poverty striken wasteland.   Roll with wind as the peasant joins the land...

    My View Of Religion

    Believe what you must. Create hope, live with hope, pay for hope, pray for hope, believe in hope and be comforted by hope.   Wars are created and all are controlled. Many different forms, each with different ideas, beliefs, leaders and rules to be followed...

    Imprisoned inside the darkness of my mind,

    Words of encouragement never make it past security, I can’t envision the sun rising tomorrow because I can’t see past the prison bars, It would be nice to have visitors but I fear that once they get in, they won’t be able to leave, so it’s better that I am left to rot...

    In One Ear And Out The Other

    I sit in a classroom with words in my head. They never go in so I may as well be dead. The thoughts are for thinking but they're too hard for me. The words go in one ear, then straight out the other.   I'm sorry you've wasted, all of your time. On telling me...
