The Regimen

Standard

Happiness and sadness
Surprises and shocks
Step back and observe
Breathe in, breathe out
People and incidents
Places and changes
Slow down and smile
Pause before the next mile
Serenity holds
Calmness wins
Regimen the new style

The Dark Knight

Standard

He emerged from darkness
Dirt, gloom, melancholy
He came forth in midst of chaos
Mud, murk, desolation
A hand reached out from the rain
An arm stretched around my waist
Upward
To where oxygen was
Forward
To where hopes lay
He lifted me from the dark
Showing me the sunny side every day

The Peel

Standard

It’s happening
I can’t stop it
It’s going
I can’t help it
The itch all over
The undescribable dryness
Leave something behind
To move forward
Lose something important
To leap for even more significance

The Answer III

Standard

Every question has an answer
Once I was taught
More questions arose
Number of answers couldn’t follow
I looked down and saw the answers I held
So I thought

The Fly

Standard

They say it’s a rocket
We say it’s a fly
My man told me to chill
We are here to thrive

The Climb

Standard

Clouds behind clouds behind clouds
Mountains after mountains after mountains
A start with no end
An impossible mission
But swollen eyes can’t get me to the other side
Neither can endless whines
I bite my teeth
Pull myself up and climb
