Nature- I watch
by Dev Parkash Nischal
Nature- I watch I deeply watchBlossomed flowers During morning hoursTruly delicate in multi colorsIn the lap of natureI do smile andTry to make their day brightIn returnThey are reason for my joyMorning so bright-full and colorfulSet me in motion andI move onWondering natureReason enough for me toPraise God and His creationThese beauties though delicateHave enough courage…

A Beautiful Way to Die
by dylancowgill
Why can’t I leave you behind like all the rest?Who are we?You’re not who you were,And I’ve never known who I am.True love or obsession.A hand full of pills or depression.Strangers arms around me are warm,But they’re not yours.Why do I long for those arms for comfort?The same ones that put the knife in my…

Reality

A budding flowerOn the hillside of a desolate wastelandBeauty in dark and derelict worldAnd yet it withersLike everything else.

Therapy
by dylancowgill

Home
by dylancowgill
I hate this house.It creaks when I try to sneak past my mother in the late hours.The walls close in while it is dark.It always seems dark these days.The bleakness of my bare room has driven me hollow.Driven me mad with angst.So many sleepless and tear-filled nights in this house.And yet, somewhere deep in the…

An Empire of Fools
by dylancowgill
What have we become?An empire of fools?A nation of bigots and liars.We the people have become us vs. them. Do we accept this? Do we welcome the demands of a mad clown?Death in the streets and murder by the guards.A collapsed ship captained by a drunken sailor. How can we stop what has become inevitable?How do we…
