Your Way

Many paths walked
And avenues wandered,
Problems I've solved
And puzzles I've pondered.
A life lived in answers,
But the questions unknown,
The journey is endless
When you continue to grow.

Eagles have eyes,
But the present cannot.
When none know your history
They don't know what you've got.
What you've earned with your efforts
What you've paid to pave the way.
Who you are from your learning,
Where you've been in your day.

Take a page from your future,
Know your ways with a smile,
For where you travel next,
Only you know the miles.
And for the blind present
That knows nothing of you -
It is their disadvantage
When they assume what is true.

A Memory

You sit like a thorn in my mind,
You ache like a muscle torn,
You moan like a whore at work....

The night is clear as day,
My dark friend went away,
Music brought me absolution....

Weave a spell for unbelievers,
Tell a story like a seizure,
Give 'em hell for secrets hidden.....

Trapped and born, wrapped in scorn,
Lit by blazes, warped by hazes,
Your throat is now my trumpet.....

You were always on the stage,
Unwashed and slightly dazed,
For your mind remains a maze.....

Hellbent fury, sound and violence,
Never visited by silence,
It is your sound that heals your world.
