Crown

pexels-photo-68389

Eyes open to a painting on the wall

He walks without spotting where she will fall

She sees the future without knowing all

The heavy crown placed on his head will stall

The gown sweeps the floor as suspicion grows

He listens to the woman with the ring

The girl finds herself facing many foes

A choir sings and somehow he is king

A baby is born as the brother dies

The lustrous crown no longer fits right

She fills the room of the dead with her cries

Skin feels like plastic and she knows they aren’t right

Maybe she does end up on the floor dead,

but that’s how life goes; it has to end

I wrote a Shakespearean sonnet mostly because I wanted to see if I could actually accomplish it. The poem serves mainly as a summary of a book series I’m working on. It helped to put my thoughts on the moments most important to the characters in order.

I did not actually think I could accomplish this so minus a few liberties that I took, I’m very proud I actually accomplished to make a somewhat cohesive sonnet. I liked writing the sonnet but I think I have more thoughts for just fourteen lines. I tend to like longer things.

Refuse to Crumble

Refuse to crumble in the face of great opposition,

Dare the universe to capture thoughts;

Enter the world with a scream that never stops.

Never accept a draw;

Run, and when legs break, crawl

Refuse to crumble in the face of great opposition.

Sprint at the storm,

A storm many pretend is a human norm

Enter the world with a scream that never stops.

Explosions and fireworks are instant reactions,

That much power can only display itself in factions;

Refuse to crumble in the face of great opposition.

Superstition consumed the majority;

Ambition laid with resentment and gave birth to contentment

Enter the world with a scream that never stops.

Destiny emerged from the mist of viewing to say enough

Fate shook history’s hand with a touch of luck

Refuse to crumble in the face of great opposition

Enter the world with a scream that never stops.

 

Bridges

Bridges are eye opening
They are more than just structures waiting to be repaired
They are things that allow you to unlock your dreams

They connect you to a world you thought you’d never see

Bridges are the key to opening your eyes

Whether they’re real or imaginary, they allow you to go, to move, to be wherever you’re supposed to

Bridges are more than just structures

They are the foundation of the dreamers

A bridge will take you to a new world

That action alone will swell your heart with joy

Bridges open your eyes to wonder, and wonder is such an amazing surprise

 

Lullaby 

love is breathless; love is kind

My love for you is as old as time

Your smile is my saving grace

I know I’ll never say goodbye

Even when I’m far gone,

My love for for you will always hold on

I’ve seen you soar; I know you’ll fly

You are strong,

And you are loved

The world is waiting for you

I know you’ll fly, straight to the sky

Your words are all the strength you’ll need,

Use them wise and be kind

Remember to sing and remember to rhyme

Always forget your greed

And never hold back your tounge,

For you are as bright as the sun

I may not have a long time with you,

But all those moments shaped my life

No one will ever hurt you out of spite

I’ll make your demons run

You are strong, and you are loved

The world is waiting for you

So pick that chin up and run

You’re ready for a life of wonderful fun

The Long Road

No one talks about the grey in the world,

or how it always strays from black and white

The way it travels through thoughts like a breeze

How it’s blurry like a steam covered word

No one remembers those who dared to flee;

those who question motive and narrative

Even though running takes away your breath

Courage comes knowing when to turn your back

There’s nothing wrong with always turning left

So what all the others run a few laps?

In the end you may be the only friend

Others find their end due to stubbornness

The long road will always be their to bend

Just know, constantly exhibit kindness
