Lenny Orlando Camacho Poems
This Is What Life Is...
There are so many things I do
that I do not want to do
There are so many things I want to do
that I am not doing
there is little time left on my sand clock
I guess I can use it for regrets
and to think of possibilities that will never be
one last grain of sand
I could've done more
I should've had the courage to...
one last breath
it was a good life, but it could've been better
Death befalls me
the game board is placed before my eyes
I was just a pon
adopting behaviors they provoked
adopting their 'dreams' as mine
accepting blind fears as facts...
Small Pieces Of Me
Scales, like those of a komodo dragon,
resting on paper, burning holes
through the thin whiteness,
constricting syllables out of blackness
and the emptiness left behind.
'Not now! ' - screams the voice dictating my poetry -
'not ever...' - sadly
