Dare to believe

When the truth walks in
no one believes it
like nobody needs it
like its just a lie
though it’s actions display
that the world is in clear view
as it clearly states
the truth is on its face
but still you look away
won’t believe that it is real
the facts counter how you feel
so the truth is not what it seems
only few truly know what it means
but that’s not the case,
no, it’s no mystery
sometimes the truth
is in the majority
it walks into the room
in full view
shouldn’t be shocking-it announced
it’s next move.

The time to process morning coffee

When do you say stop?
Do you hesitate
beyond the sweet spot-
too much sugar
or not enough?

How long before
you say when?
Do you expect
to be asked again
or do you just pray
you open your lips?
When you don’t-
how do you deal with this?

How long before you say
no
will you speak or
can you reap what you sow?
Who is responsible
when nobody moves
the evil stays the same
but you refuse to choose
the ultimate undoing
is in the past you can’t
redo.

Learning to count

One two three
we sing, we sing
and sing
everything has lost
all meaning.
Four five six
we like our lies
and tricks
we sing, sing, sing
until we kill our dreams.
Seven eight nine
we can’t even own a rhyme
we just talk about our time
and sing about our lies
actions are just words
your accounting is absurd.
Ten eleven twelve
you don’t know of hell
just in your little world
you can’t sing this verse.
Thirteen fourteen fifteen
everything went missing
and we just keep on tripping
down the hole we dug
live your life delusional
keep yourself nontraditional
and deconstruct the universe
next the numbers come
as birds.

Woody and Selena

Here come the wolves
here comes the blood
we’re in for fun
when we turn a blind eye
to the ones who we love.
Oh-girl you look like a cherub
all cheeks and a smile to cherish
but your dancing for-
but your acting for
a monster.
Do you adore him?
Think he’ll lead you to your moment
back on top-is that what your hoping
but you got lost in the game
dance, dance, dance
your way to authentic fame
the kind you don’t want, but
Woody Allen would pay
get you that trophy-
that golden statue to display.
Do you really think you walk free
without blame?
When the wolves come to feed
when the wounds begin to bleed
you’ll know Selena Gomez
enabled the fiends.

Creeper and Brave

In the rose garden
what do we find?
Another pedophile
by our heroines side
fighting all the demons
witch hunt with pride
but when the victims a child
this business-not mine.

In the rose garden
what do we find?
Sweet and gentle-
yeah, a really good guy
who just happens to be
convicted of a crime
having been very generous
with his flesh and his time
abused a young boy
but to our heroine-it’s fine.

In the rose garden
what do we find?
A bunch of hypocrites
who run from real fights
can’t protect the kids
no, they just hide
protect the demons that pay
yes, protect the demons they like.

In the rose garden
what do we find?
Find there’s no difference
in the monsters this time
that evil is human
regardless of face
that evil is human
regardless of taste.

IMHO

You took the time
to give your humble opinion
so here is mine:
didn’t really need that admission
you actually took the time
to admonish my decision
but you didn’t think I had the mind
to read the words you had written
if we’re splitting hairs
you didn’t say the exact words
but aren’t we in agreement that
one thing is one thing
when putting trans first?
Don’t really understand
why you took the time to send
that really interesting DM
but thank you for the poetry
you have inspired in me
and remember I never said
they weren’t also wrong.

Choose

Choose strength
choose courage
choose to be braver than
anyone who ever said you can’t
and rise
don’t give up the fight
make the choice to thrive
and never let a word be read
that you’d give up or let
the world win
rise above
all their reasons because
all the doubt and the lies
no one else is living your life
let go of excuses and bleed
bleed out everything
feel the hurt and the pain
choose to live your life by the blade
choose strength not power
choose to burn all the cowards
break your bones and always know
you will survive
choose to be a hero
and do what’s right
never silence yourself
break free of brain signals that fail
rise up and prevail
or die standing your ground
justice you’ve found
in never backing down.

Trail v Witch hunt

Everybody loves a witch hunt
helps get rid of all those feelings
every fear you have been feeding
it gives a body to those nightmares
all the darkness we do not dare
ever name it-cause we’re too scared
but then we hunt the witches
burn them down
point our fingers-no way out
tied to the cross
by just a word-titled, labeled
and now your burnt
everybody loves a witch hunt
it’s all catharsis
with no real fuss
of ever learning what the truth was
in the accusations read
it’s twenty years after-
now off with their heads!

No more heroes

Paper dolls and monsters live
prone to acts of quiet violence
demons cull and virgins wail
no one saves themselves
just decorate our hell
we all reap what we sow
we have no heroes while evil grows
no one fights they just lose their souls
paper dolls and monsters live
we lost the fight when we gave in
there’s no justice in this world
those that speak just want the pearls
and we are left with nothing much
no hope for courage this war
we’ve gave up.

Screaming into the dark

Point the finger
scream into the dark
everyone stands together
but what war is being fought?
Destroy that which is
with no semblance of justice
what good is taking things
what good is taking money
has the monster died
or are more victims up and coming?
have you changed the world
or just hidden more clever demons
we applaud the mob
while not killing off the evils.
