Learning to Utilize Imagination

Imagination is a tool underutilized

Its roots come alive only when tapped deep enough

Sometimes the soil is stubborn

The plants don’t get through

The rains keep trying

Your thoughts are glued

You wonder why you think so lame

Why you can’t elevate your game past a certain membrane

You lose touch with any excitement

Everything has become repetitive

You miss Mike Tyson

Your imagination is not going through

You just want to improve your outcomes

But your thoughts are glued

You have to learn how to use it like a tool

It’s not just dreaming and moving on

It takes a lot of acting to set it on

To make it a reality

From your mind to your environment

To manifest your wishes into real-world successes

The choice is yours if you want to tap in

Your imagination is waiting within

Do you know how to get in?

Marinating in Sadness

Woman in black dress wearing brown bag on head with sad face

Cooking Yourself Alive

Sometimes you need lubrication to get by

The alcohol uses your veins as a rollercoaster ride

Your sadness remains empty because it was never full

Alcohol alleviates the pain but it’s only a game

You come crashing down soon after again

The ride never seems to end

You just start all over as if stuck in quicksand

What’s left to do besides marinate in sadness

You’re paralyzed on the couch, your bedroom or your mind

You stare out the window slow as time

The world is moving forward but you’re stuck

If only you can ride that rainbow like Daffy Duck

Your rely on drugs for hope and aspiration

But you come crashing down quickly

Your sadness was always out of luck

People want to get to know you

But you lost interest in them before they even met you

You give them a chance and you’re already bored

They don’t think outside the box

They’re too manipulated by what they’re told

Seeking self-comfort seems like the only option at times

Peace of mind and solitude eases the painful obstacles of the mind

Can you relate to what I am saying or is this just a facade?

Think about it again because by tomorrow you probably forgot . . .

Lost Love

Blue and purple galaxy in night sky

Memories Don’t Lie

Losing love out of your life

The pain spills away

But cannot successfully leave your body

It builds up harming your psyche

Your heart cries in pain

Your mind no longer remains tamed

Your emotions take over

You stare at the sky lost over

The lost love has departed your life

The sky is glowing

But your strife is growing

How much longer till you recover

Will the pain last or will you move forward

Being stuck is no easy task

Especially when functional like on good grass

You try your best to invest

Your future relies on your self-interest . . .

A Ten Year Battle

Lonely, sad man sitting in front of white projector screen

The Battle Known as Loneliness

The pain harbors in the center of your chest

The empty corners of your room remain isolated

People come and go

Yet you remain in the same place

Isolated with pain and arrested in shame

But is it your fault you constantly ask yourself

Or is it destiny observing the cards that were dealt to you?

Whatever the reason may be

Your loneliness continues to eat you alive

The weekends are worse, the weekdays you manage by

How does one exit this trap called loneliness?

Do you just accept like a prisoner and hope for the best

Counting down the days until you can hold someone abreast . . .

War On Your Mind

Half of inside of brain

Spiritual War for Your Mind

The mind is your battleground

Fought on a spiritual level

God gave you life

But the Devil tries to take it

You end up confused

Sometimes dazed too

But evilness does not care

It’s better for you to be in despair

God warns us every day

But our soul gets lost

Our mind fights even during the night

Are dreams reality or just imagination?

How long can this fight go on?

As long as you live it will continue on . . .
