Poetry for inspirational purposes.


It's the idea of you

Just you is the idea

No one else sees you at your weakest moment

Stay strong - you're strong willed

The eyes are the window to the soul

The people will never know

Well maybe your eyes need shade

That's why some are closing the curtain

Just to be alone in a non social setting

So they can be social with a pen

Escaping reality

Exploring opportunity

Not knowing where their mind is heading

Concentrating on being STILL

For failure is not an option

Is your calling an advancement prophet sent to educate properly through your dreams?

That get you to think positively and rise above poverty

Forcing you to take heed of corruption

Binocular view - the youth our solution

They have progressive ideas and are fearless

Poetic dissection meant for reader's digestion

As eye piece this together piece by piece because of peace

Alone eye can think because its silent

Once my silence is broken - truth be told

Straighten facts - eye release - its time

For the sun to go down to see the moon shine

Are you ready to take on the world geared with the thoughts you jotted down that were on roam?

Eye'll be back

Eye'll return to my poetic home
