Reaching My Hand Out

It’s a difficult thing to do.
Reaching my hand out, to help a fellow human being.
How does one react if rejected ?
Just walk away like nothing happened ?

What if that human does something after you reach out your hand.
Do you not feel responsible, or do you feel not worthy.
Could you have helped that person.
Or did reaching out made it worse ?

How could reaching out make it worse, your just trying to help.
Some are so set in there ways and closed minded that they’re set with one outcome.
What if you can change the course of someones life.
For the better.

To show them that they’re on the wrong path.
To show them that they have someone here for them.
That’s what one is suppose to do, is it not ?
Compassion is in all of us.

No matter what another has done, we all try to help each other.
You can’t force your help onto another.
That might just push things into the wrong direction.

What if your right and they’re reaching left because they refuse your hand.
All one can do is try and hope that the person will reach back.
To save another.
To help another.
To show another that they have help if they need it.

Be Like That

I don’t care anymore, you can be like that.
Keep acting one way but behind closed doors your a different way.
Telling me your easy going but your not going easy.
It started with a simple question that showed your true colours.

After things were said and done you complained.
I chuckled to myself about it, thinking it means nothing.
By the time I come back downstairs your in bed light still on ipod going.
Chuckled to myself again, didn’t think much of it.

But clearly this is how you want to be, it was a puzzle, I solved it.
No matter what I always took other peoples thoughts into account for movies.
I know I get plenty of time to watch movies on my own so it’s fine.
Clearly it’s puppy dogs and that’s it for you from now on.

I don’t care anymore, you can be like that.
Keep acting one way but behind closed doors your a different way.
Telling me your easy going but your not going easy.
It started with a simple question that showed your true colours.

Keep complaining that your spending too much money recently.
Yeah I know what your dropping it on, even though you don’t think I do.
It’s funny to watch your reactions to things.
I knew something was up all this time.

I guess I didn’t want to see it at first.
Now I wonder how I didn’t.

I don’t care anymore, you can be like that.
Keep acting one way but behind closed doors your a different way.
Telling me your easy going but your not going easy.
It started with a simple question that showed your true colours.

Nothing But Darkness In That One

I see nothing but darkness in that one.

All secretive will everything and always has been.

I tried to listen and take her into the light.

But clearly she refused.

No hope for that one.

She can’t be saved.

Just had to walk away from her.

Not sure how one could live life like that.

Her two faces come out more often now.

She doesn’t think that I don’t see her.

Living a secret life, nothing new.

I suspect that she always have.

I think she is better off living that lie

That she fantasizes about.

Her small group accepts her.

Clearly I have always seen through it.

Think For Yourself

Think for yourself.
Don’t do what they do.
Time for you to blase your own trail

Everyone has to find themselves and there own path.
It’s time to break away from the norm and find yours.
It won’t be easy, never is.
But nothing about life ever will be.

Following the way others do things won’t give you the same outcome.
Chances are you won’t come across the same problems that they have.

Think for yourself.
Don’t do what they do.
Time for you to blase your own trail

Ten

Why, are expectations so high ?
People set these high demands and aren’t happy unless they reach them.
But when I release something I’m happy if it just hits ten.
Ten reads is all my expectations ever go to.

I usually reach that on the first day
Anything more than that is just bonus.
I know not many people seek me out.
In order to read what the latest thing I’ve written.

Poetry is a lost art form.
Most of them are found on blogs.
People have resorted not to publish things.
To showcase talent through the world of blogs.

Or community driven websites.
I post mine on a handful of sites.
Then I release it to be distributed.
It use to be read, or so it seems.

Now it’s just what I can dream.
I hope for things to get higher than they do.
But it’s tough to do when it’s a lost art form.
This is the bar I set, always keep it low.

I know
It’s such a small number that at times I hope.
One day things will change and I can count higher.
I doubt it will happen.

Millions of other poets but no body searches us out.
We do things our own way.
In hopes of people finding there own way to us.

The Fault Of One

Growing up I’ve learned the power of one.
Simply the one is me, the fault is mine.
No other way of wording it.
Doesn’t matter if I’m by myself or together with someone.

Clearly everything is the fault of me.
I can do no right.
I do plenty of wrong.
Or so they tell me.

For a quiet guy, I certainly do much wrong.
Always getting blamed by the opposite.
Knowing nothing, learning everything.
Sitting back, and catching blame.

The fault of one
The fault of Ken

Shake It Off

No matter what happens, you have to learn to shake it off.
It may seem like a big thing in your life at this point in time.
But  it will be a drop in the lake that is your life.
Shake it off and move on, something else will come your way.

I know at times it won’t be an easy thing to do.
Sometimes it will be a challenge.
Sometimes it will even test you as a person.
It will be difficult.

Getting over stuff is never easy.
Getting through stuff is never easy.
But that bad thing that happened to you.
Shake it off and move forward

Something bigger and better is coming your way.
You have to gain the strength to get to it.
