Lost in questions Lead by rage Fueled by anger Where am I in all of this Poisoning myself with everyone’s views Tasting everyone’s hate It drains me to live fueled by destruction Words clogged in my mind Streets stained with blood Cruses coming from both sides Who’s right, who’s wrong When will we have a […]

Human Looking

Pain makes us choose Mistakes make us doubt Loss makes us remember Too many thoughts Some people are often forgotten Frustration causes stress Forcing us to search for answers, Either in the stars, In the past Or in the Gods We’ve lost We’ve  forgot that we are human Not suits, nor uniforms, nor labels We […]

We Pass

Don’t know about this news Figured it would never come You weren’t someone I worried about Took your punches and kept moving Didn’t complain in the moment Only while drinking Life was life, what can you do We be your famous last words Just the way you were with me You genuinely were happy to […]

This Race

Break fast and run hard Keep pace Don’t slow down Life is gaining Feel it getting closer Don’t look back Footsteps echo louder If it passes you Run it down Don’t stop Legs will hurt Chest will burn Sides will feel like punches This race Life Wasn’t meant to be painless It’s a test Don’t […]

A Peaceful Burn

Embers burn slow They glow in the night Moon hiding behind the clouds The woods crackles Ash raises and burns out Smoke disappears into the night Wood can be heard drying The fire shoots higher Widely out of control Still contained within it’s walls I can’t stop looking It’s light draws me The sounds engulfs […]

Need Help

A little help Friends help you get by Lovers help endure Family helps get back up How far do we get alone? With help no way of telling Life hurts less With someone to share the story with Day #340 SJD © 2020 Segundo Juan Devora. All Rights Reserved.

Unknown Tears

Two tears for the unknown In passing a story I heard A life long struggle With a tragic end A hero did not make it Their life now an example A beacon to others I cried not because of their story But because I know deep down They would’ve rather lived Day #339 SJD © […]

Weird Place

I’ve seen all movies I can Wasted endless time scrolling The weekend no longer matters Stuck at home chasing my tail Bored out of my mind My imagination has called out No indication of when it will return I feel drawn down Tomorrow has to be a better day Better than today? Not saying much […]
