The search

Most will say,
look above,
forget the dark,
find a sun.
I say,
it's only
when you go
deeper than
the darkness
that you truly
find light.

Of poets

It took all my heart,
and then some,
to put myself down
into four lines.
It's quiet, that heart,
now that I've been asked
to apologise for this poetry.

Vain

Your vanity bores me.
You count not
the experiences
the people
the songs
the mistakes
the lessons
the stories
the wounds and wins
the words and poetry
that these years gone by
have given you.
You count only the
wrinkles and the grey hair
and your obsession
with all those signs of old age
only show me
how little you've grown.

Gravity

It was the tallest tower
of the highest hill.
And yet I floated down
like a leaf from a 
beautiful Autumn tree.
And so, I got up
and continue to be.

Significant

It's unpredictable,
sneaks up on you,
this feeling of
insignificance.
It comes out of nowhere
and hits you hard.
Crashing into you,
cracking your ribs and
crushing your heart.
You'd think,
it must set you free,
this insignificance of being.
But that's not so.
It's in fact,
the heaviest burden of all.
A casket of unfulfillment
that you must carry alone
on your ordinary shoulders.
And so you must look.
For a person or a purpose,
who will help you carry it.
And help you find the reason
for your existence.
