About Me and My Poetry

Retired Firefighter and Paramedic. Love to put my thoughts into writing! The creativity seems to flow much more freely. I can't sufficiently explain it. Seems much like I'm speaking for someone else. Base much of my articulation of my mind on the emotion invoked upon me while during and after I'm at work. The same speaks to how I judge the writing of my poetic cohorts. Never the less, (other than being a priviledge) poetry I find to be a great escape. I consider the "intellectual deepness" of a poem, POETRY in and of itself! Ahhhh yes....putting pen to paper (now an old cliche' for "keyboard"). POETRY....very UNDER RATED, to say the least.

I can soar but I can't fly......Can't tell the truth but cannot lie
I hate sweets but love the candy....When I'm angry? Fine and dandy

I blast out words that come to me....And turn out works of art
Outlast all herds that come to see....Disperse them far apart

Can someone tell me who I am?.....Where I came from.....If you can
In this conundrum I exist....I'll never last....In this mind twist

I see my eyes and hear my ears.....Confused...Perplexed....Can't stop the tears
Can't shake the hurt that I have felt.....My brain of wax....Will surly melt

Inside of me just feeling hollow.....Continued pain....So hard to swallow
This torture has me by the throat....Such suicide.....Without the note

Hope fate will intervene in time.....I'm not a cat.....I don't have nine
Need direction, need some help....I'm just a man....What have I felt?

I flare...I dare...I take these chances.....If I don't try....The devil dances
You have to make an effort, see?.....For if I don't.....It's just not me

Need look your demons in the eye.....Challenge them.....And you'll know why
The sharpness of your view improves.....day by day....you follow grooves

It takes the will of GOD sometimes.....To do the work.....And tow the lines
You'll see the light, a tiny dot.....Of all these things.....that you have fought

Be not afraid and have no fear.....For he is there.....To you so near
Be comfortable in your own skin.....Completely right.....And not a sin

Was always there, right by your side.....Even when....You felt you died
At times he carried you right through.....You couldn't have known....But yes, he knew

So you'll have days of good and bad....His way to let you know....You'll have happy, you'll have sad.....But grace he will bestow......So wash away the guilt and worry.....You've no time for that....There's no rush and there's no hurry.....HE'LL BLESS YOU WHERE YOU'RE AT.........

I am the consequence of your mistake...The one you"ve regreted for years
I'm all delinquence, of that, which you hate...The son you've embedded in tears

Losing heart, losing soul...My spirit's flown away
Came apart, a void, a hole...Didn't think I'd see the day

Dichotomy...Is a lot of me.........Touch and feel...But never...Please
You taught...Of what you got of me...Much is real...From this disease

An eye for an eye...A tooth for a tooth...A distant storm, Is apparent
The truth, or a lie...Should there be some proof?...An instant, form of "Transparent"
