A state that’s not been quite defined
Between full night and when the sun will rise
With eyes wide open you wait out this time
I find you there.

More reflection than the suns true light
Stuck somewhere in-between the day and night
When other senses give way to sight
I find us there.

Not completely lit but no longer in the dark
Somewhat akin to the unsure regions of my heart
Hoping you’re here with me on more than just a lark
Can we make it there?

So, tell me twilight as you ascend
Are you the beginning or the end?

Moving On

She left that life behind her,
refused to shed another tear.
Flew that flag of sweet surrender,
'til the anger disappeared.

All they did was hold her back,
in a stranglehold she couldn't break.
She was caught in obligations trap;
she'd had about all she could take.

So, she left that life behind her.
Now she's off to chase her dreams.
Ran from drama that confined her.
She's finally been redeemed.

She's not looking for permission,
or a sign before she leaves.
She's made her decision
and she'll finally be free.

Free of that life she left behind her.

Be The Change

More than once I've heard it said
that actions outdo words
so why are we so prone to tread
on verbal battlefields?

The world looks out for peace
in fact, it's a constant battle
never mind the contradiction
using weapons of uninformed prattle.

While we wait around for change
and fight with idle words
the impact has a narrow range
and bleeding hearts lose sympathy.

With actions life progresses
like marching into war
getting dirt under your fingernails
be the change you want to see in the world.

Pillows cushion silent tears
In beds that harbor broken hearts
