My Secret Treasure

My Secret Treasure ~~~~~ Digging a deep hole, I find my darkness grows, “No way out,” they say, “But through.” Pretty sure I’ll burn, Long before I tunnel through The Earth. Time to change Direction, but which way? Should I turn, Follow my nose, Or wait for a sign, A glimmer in darkness, A will-o-wisp, […]

Just How It Goes

Just How It Goes ~~~~~ I’m an old white guy, I shouldn’t rap. If I even try, They’ll call it crap. But I am troubled, In every way. My stress is doubled, On every day. Terror and fright On the news, Each and every night, But not my views. Toil and strife, It creeps inside […]

While we caper and cavort blindfolded, oh, so close to the brink, Believing we’re so ordinary, nothing extraordinary can be done. When actions are performed beyond the […]

Brightly Blaze the Stars

Brightly Blaze the Stars ~~~~~ Mentioned rarely in polite conversation, I follow you around. You will never see or hear me, because I never make a sound. Unknown land where I will someday lead you, an adventure; Sometimes I’ll snatch you unprepared, curtail your time here. Still, whether slow, sudden, I choose always the correct […]
