No one really listens
They don't seem to care
All they seem to think about
Is that they're getting theirs

No one pays attention
They couldn't give a damn
They don't really want to know
Who or what I am

No one even asks
They don't want to know
The truth behind the smiling face
So my story goes

Mindless

On the wing
That's where I'll be
Flying high
Finally free
High above
The tallest tree

Weight of the world
Left far below
No more miles
Left to go
Gone from sight
Or so it goes

When I'm gone
Don't give a care
Just look above
And I'll be there
Floating on
The thinnest air

On the Wing

Mirror, mirror
On the wall
Makes a fool
Of us all

The more we stare
The less we see
The ugly truth
So plain to see

Face to face
Black and white
Will we ever
Make it right

That is the question
Once foretold
The lack of vision
Centuries old

Reflections

Reflections

This used to be
My happy place
It put a smile
On my face

Now it's sad
Full of woe
Nothing left
It's time to go

Whenever I go
Somewhere else
I wish I were
Someone else
What more do you want
How much do you need
Broke my heart
Made me bleed

You disappeared
Out the door
Left me here
Wanting more

Enough is enough
Is much too much
Sick and tired
Of all that stuff

Saudade

He walked like a sailor
Across the deck of a ship
Long and lean
Loose at the hip

No matter the seas
Nor how salty the air
His stride never altered
The Devil may care!

He leaned with the tides
And took it as true
That the Good Lord kept
One eye on the crew

Nor once gave the Captain
A single excuse
Could pull and climb rope
Like the knot on a noose

The clothes on his back
Clung tattered and worn
Faded and stained
Survivors of storms

The soles of his boots
Rubbed smooth underfoot
Shuffled the planks
Covered in soot

His whole life balanced
On the crest of a wave
Unbeknownst unto him
A watery grave

The Mariner

I look to the sun
In spite of the rain
To rise above
My earthly pain

Though times are hard
And tough to endure
When there's no justice
And nowhere a cure

The heart grows heavy
Amidst it all
Caught in the crossfire
With no one to call

So when things go bad
And then get worse
All you need
Is one little verse

I look to the sun
In spite of the rain
To rise above
My earthly pain

Look to the Sun

I stopped on a bridge
In a forest deep
And prayed the Lord
My soul to keep

Then tossed a penny
Into the stream
And watched the liquid
Copper gleam

Time stood still
As in a dream
Heaven on Earth
With me in between

I lingered awhile
And left too soon
The paradise found
That cold afternoon

I've passed over that bridge
Many times since
And spotted my coin
Still in suspense

But now there were others
Nickels and dimes
Scattered about
No rhythm or rhyme

A constellation formed
By errant hands
A song of hope
Submerged on land

Like stars at night
In the Twilight Zone
The duller the day
The brighter they shone

Penny for your thoughts

Hey, Big Man
What's your plan?
Towering over
The Promised Land?

Muscling in
On smaller fry
Hated until
The day you die?

You take what you want
And show no regret
Domination
By disrespect

But sooner or later
You're going to get yours
That's how karma
Runs its course


And when you die
No one will cry
Ever
Wonder why
Big Guy?
