Poetry and metaphors

Bloody tree

The seed falls,

It must fall,

Giving way to life,

For in it lies hope.

Softened in the soil,

Feel the warmth,

Life come forth,

Seed of life arise.

Face the dangers that wait,

To choke, cut, crucify.

Survive the womb, the school yard jungle.

Survive the free way, beat cancer.

But death, your grip is cold!

Oh tree, bloody tree,

Source of life,

Hope.

The seed falls,

To the ground it falls.

It must fall,

To bring forth life.

The seed falls,

It must fall,

Giving way to life.

For in you

Lies hope.

STONE HEART

Cliffs of granite ten stories tall,

cold, foreboding, angry, the wall.

Find a crack, small as a dime.

Drop in a seed, with water, warmth, time,

huge angry cliffs will crumble, be humbled,

like a child, for need of love.


TRUTH BLEEDS

I looked on the mountain for truth

in the cracks, on the peaks.

I looked in schools and books

until my head hurt.

I cried like a poet seeking truth.

A taste, a nibble,

aroma of truth

is all I could find, damn my mind.

Then wisdom spoke

to me, she cried,

she felt, she loved,

she healed, and she gave birth.

She bowed her head and surrendered

her life on the bloody tree

for me.

Eclipse

My mother’s religion hurts.

You’re greater than my mother.

I see you in her shadow.

She should be in your’s.

Tried to set my shadow free,

tripped up over my feet.

Guess I’m destined to misery,

as far as I can see.

A shadow hangin’ over me,

wets my spirit down.

See you through another’s eyes,

distorts the purest light.

TRUST

Aint gonna trust

no more

Hide my fear

deep inside

Trust

no more.

Aint gonna show

my hand.

Hide

my hand,

Play my cards,

Faces down,

show no one.

Aint gonna trust

no more,

Hide my fear,

Deep inside,

Trust

no more

No more,

Silly soft heart

Dark world,

shark world

Aint gonna trust

no more,

Hide my fear

deep inside

Trust

no more.

Light of life

lift me up

Help me trust

Don’t need

this pain.
