I'm sorry 

my own 

issues

got in the way

of seeing 

yours, too. 

I'm sorry I

wasn't there

and expected

so much of you

but growing 

is all I can try

and do

changing 

and trying 

to be better,

new.

RD: Failure & Injustice

Take that loss

and let it change your heart

Take this injustice

As a place to start

Take your ambition

and turn it to art -

Take awful ideals

and tear them apart

Take that corruption

and bring back a heart

GUNS

Greetings great America; 

white, shot up hysteria

freedom - the fuck'n dreams

bullets over black screams

up to the theater in a trifle

rifle in your hand,

make a stand, we demand

God Bless this fuck'n land

gunshots gunning like a game

all the same,

he's insane

it's inane,

Johnny's pain

gotta drain

or better yet, aye are

fifteen to the school

bitter bullet batted down

eight years temper -

would it cool?

or is it flaming fire

meant to churn

till' we learn it'll burn

or is it us who yearn to burn

not the flames blame to earn?

without a way to know or learn

with fire at every turn -

can't discern endless burn

where the burn turned concerned.

I wonder

if you've listened

to this same song

if its melody

sent chills

down your spine

if the words

brought tears

trailing along -

It certainly did,

at least for me

and the day

it doesn't

of control

I'll be free

Frustrations

We don't talk when we 

spend time together 

we just take turns 

posing for pictures 

and pretending to smile 

for our Facebook Friends

vacations, rooftop bars, 

and other ends

Like if we check in 

at all the right places -

pretty backgrounds

To our painted on faces -

Maybe we'll fool ourselves

into thinking that

life is worthy of our time

if it's worthy 

of our Instagram likes

Disenchanted

I'm starting to feel

trapped inside my words

because suddenly

it's become

Something I'm Good At

that my parents brag about

when their friends

bring it up it at parties -

it's on its way to turning into

what people expect from me,

eager to share their advice

like they know better than me

the kind of stories

I should make

which characters feel

real and fake

and now this pen

holds their pressures

That in writing

I try to escape

but there is no escape -

Oh God.

There is no escape.

So it's no surprise

this joy, too, they'd take.

I wanna be someone worth your proud gaze; I'm trying to live up to who I am in your eyes. I'm not that person yet. Maybe one day I can be.
