What is success?

I want to be the greatest artist the world has ever known. But what if the world doesn’t know me? How do I forever shed the need for outside approval? I do what I Love… but if I can’t sustain a living… does that mean I am no good? Or not understood?

I want truth, beauty, NOW.


The Selfish Shellfish

The Selfish Shellfish,
lived in his shell.
Outside, the others in Hell,
he would just yell.

All he needs is himself.
He grew up alone,
and how Love was shown
did not translate to women.

He loved his wife,
with all his life,
but something inside hid him.

When it was all over,
The Selfish Shellfish
moved out of his shell.
Then it was him in Hell.


The Way You Smiled Just There

How can fate not be true?
When I wound up sitting next to you.
Or rather you sat by me.

To see your hair;
The way you smiled just there.
What a trip, after all.
I may pray
For more delays.


His Throne

A day spent alone
Is a day upon His throne.
