It’s Time

Posted in education, Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , on July 24, 2009 by dustus

Pacing along the riverfront
Perhaps I waste my time
Thoughts are elsewhere I suspect
Can’t fight she’s on my mind

Water shimmers shades of green
Wishing tints it blue
Finally feel like I can breathe
Flower scent in bloom

Idle in my tragic scene
The past not disappearing
Want so much, but can’t believe
Found my home for healing

Made a promise this afternnon
Sweat off my brow ink-smeared
Will never hold back, reveal what’s true
It’s time to face my fears

Must Reprogram Me

Posted in Blog, education, Poetry, writing with tags , , , on June 25, 2009 by dustus

Driven to perform
Yet afraid to try
Prescription for failure
Inhibits this life

Would rather die than public speak
How did I learn to be so weak?

Implicit suggestions
Break out of your shell
Overt rejections
Suspending my self

Now is the time
Must reprogram me
With goals on hold
Only bold when I dream

Writing on The Wall

Hostility breeds contempt
Something else did I expect?
For one, not being exempt
Or I told-you-so
Avoid the respect
Sadly everything goes

Wobbling unevenly
Questioning my career lately
At first expecting A-ratings inevitably
Conceitedly, believe you me
Been a long road down
Now unafraid to webcast
Finally-tuned poetic sound
Fired off in creative rounds
Typing words
Spins me around
Honoring grace
Composed as a smile
Healed by your approving face
Make you shake your head
Quixotic proved unrest
Taken down a notch in jest
Determined to resurrect my dreams
Who knew I almost left them for dead?

Many a sleepless night
Then working all day long
Forgetting the time
Having earned my voice
Nearly full strong
Conquering fear
Regaining my spine
Vision clear
Finally unafraid of
Contents in mind
Forgetting the past
Future on line
This moment begun
Inspired heart
I’m in my zone
Not writing on the wall
“To be left alone”
