Like Capturing A Star


Going through some picture
Sitting here Reminiscing
About my brother and my sisters
And how much I really miss 'em.

Miss my nephews and my daughters
My mother and my father
Time has only made it harder
A pill impossible to swallow.

Eternally my love stays true
Titi's unborn & Naya I miss you too
The newest members to our crew.

Though
Grandma's dead and gone
Memories keep me strong
but I pray one day I make home
Cause many nights I feel alone.

My sins I am confessing
Situation has me stressing
And Hoping for a blessing.

Pain that will not go away
Karma is a high price to pay
And it's collecting every day.

Herbal has me fiending
Cause demons muffling my screaming,
So I'm twitching when I'm dreaming.

Happiness seems so far
Like capturing a star.

My search for inner peace
Conflicted with
A goal so difficult to reach
but taken from it's brilliance
A humbling experience.


I missed so many years
but Shed a million tears
And still don't have you near.

Happiness seems so far
Like capturing a star...

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
