Graffiti

Standard

What to write on a cliff?

Hellos, goodbyes, 

What ifs…

Times & dates,

Peoples’ names,

Tic-Tac-Toe games,

Precious quotes,

Political votes ,

Random thoughts,

Wars fought,

Babies born,

Hearts torn,

Love & hate

In spray paint.

All that matters

In colours;

Splattered.

Overlapping words,

Messages blurred.

Anonymous & obvious,

Kindness & obnoxiousness,

Innocent & obscene,

Captivating & free,

What art uniquely,

What graffiti briefly 

To put here on this cliff 

Like a modern hieroglyph?

Run-on

Standard

runon

I’m like a big
run-on sentence
that never stops
talking to myself
and others even
when I want to
be quiet I can’t
shut off my mind
and I keep going
on and on and on
wondering how
to put an end
to my pointless
thoughts and
whatnot and
whatever waking
moment finds me
it finds me not
speechless for
a single second
what happened
to inner peace
i need relief and
more sleep and
less people
adding to me
I just want to be
alone and free
to finally let
all words be
deleted no not
deleted or erased
just blank
nothing on
a white page.

“In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it.”
~Isaiah 30:15

“Even fools are thought wise they keep silent,
and discerning if they hold their tongues.”
~Proverbs 17:28

Ponderings…

Standard

And to be totally contradictory to myself…

 

Ponderings….
Often I’m lost 
In my mind’s 
Wanderings ,
Walking through
My neural pathways,
Fondling white matter,
Fostering thoughts
That may matter,
But may not .
Is this lolling 
Worthwhile wondering?
Or should I not be 
Bothering conjuring
Dormant thoughts?
Am I just busy
Squandering time on 
Ponderings….?

Thoughts

Standard

The thoughts that
I entertain
Are not
Always good.
I don’t always
Dwell on
The things that
I should.
Am I held
Responsible for
The things that
I think?
Is it up
To me
To make
My mind
Succinct
To the truth
To what is right and
To what is pure?
Because if I only
Thought of that,
My thoughts
Would sure
Be fewer.
And all the
Lovely, noble
Things of life
Would rise up
To the surface
There’d be
No room for
Any form of
Perverseness,
Nor anything
That could
Be found
Worthless.
Instead I
Would see
What’s only
Excellent and
The very best.
I would be
Filled with
Peaceful thoughts
Of happiness,
And maintain
A mind at rest
With thoughts
Blessed
100 %!

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” ~Philippians 4:8
