Oh God, My Beauty!

Cold Is Agonyís Cage

In The Valley Without Vision

Ruthless Pride

Fruits Evil Hands Did Sow

Defining True Beauty

I Throw My Words Toward Tomorrow

The Hands Of Time Are All Of Our To Bear

Let The Passion Flow


There Is Beauty In The Ground

Condition Of Thee

All The Flowers You Plant Tomorrow

We Are Such Small People

Looking Back

Nefarious Love 2

She Was A Masterpiece

Dark Skies

Loneliness Walks The Strangerís Road

The Apology

Nefarious Love

Street Struggle 101 (If You Play The Game)

I See You Mercy

Reverse The Curse They Tried To Ascribe To You

Our Father

Beautiful Flower

Man Can Only Do So Much

The Silent Sufferer

Humble Happiness And Pity Pain

Pen Me My Honesty

If You Tear The Passion From My Soul

Listen To The Skyís Sad Song

The Well Dressed Man

This poem is about men who cover up their problems and fears with material things while suffering in silence.

Men dress in suits,
           put on ties
but who on earth,
  hear their cries?
Their silence...
    Their Fears...
       Their salty Tears,
   on the pillow leaks;
Looking for answers...
            in their sleep
But do dreams...
     answer their prayers,
        ease their minds,
             cure their cares?
While dressing in savvy suits,
     like rich fertilizer,
  nourishing their fragile roots
But who will heal the pain in their souls
and mature their roots as they grow old?
