Poem: Beautiful Things

If there was a feeling
that said enough is enough
that would be one sexy zen,
but there ain’t no such thing
and all I have left are these
lost emotions, hidden
within the layers
of my double chin.

Let me tell you:

Now when you take a ticket
and board your wings of imagination
and you are bit by
some foreboding tick
of self-deprecation
–remember,
that you have it in you
to create
beautiful things.

There will be those types
who don’t understand,
who just want to hate
and make you feel down.
It don’t matter.

They’re your bitter enemies,
members of family,
close-friends and
late night loves.

But what do they know?

for each weaknesses
that they abuse
you grow stronger, and wiser
and the fire in your blood
runs rampant within you
–you have passion
pay no eye for defeat.

You have it in you
to create
beautiful things.

One day you will see,
there is nothing stopping you
from making your mark
be it out of love or curiosity,
or both

my eyes have seen you and I know
you will scour the mountain tops
and release the high winds
and go on adventures
to discover
all that underlying beauty
and touch the hearts
of others.

So, remember
You have it in you
to create
beautiful things.
