Questions

Last night I found myself awake at two or three in the morning, just lying in bed, thoughts racing. In-between all these fearful questions my head was asking,   "Why am I alone?" "Why do I keep running from myself?" "I want to live a meaningful life, how?"   I was having a moment pleading with my head to let me sleep. These questions were important but so was resting but my brain wasn't having it. So on and on went my thoughts, speeding thru my head, laying there on my back with my hands resting on chest…

Love comes when we need it

Love comes not when we want it but when we need it It can wash over us like a cleansing flood or annoy us like a pesky mosquito  The choice we have is how we react to loves presence We can let fear control us and run or we can stand and face it  Being scared is natural so don't let its presence ward you off If your scared it probably means your heading in the right direction  Love doesn't come at the perfect time so you can't plan for it  You will probably miss it a few times before you notice it's there but don't…

Just A Thought

We have all had those moments where we are pursuing something for a period of time and we come to the realization that we are not getting any closer to that something. It's at this point we find ourselves at a fork in the road. Do we continue pursuing or do we let it go? At only four months in to 2015, I have found myself at this fork several times. For all,  except two things, I have decided to let them go, that they are just not meant to be at this moment in my life. I have found, in most cases, this is…Read more

Two Ships

I began to fall the day you decided to leave
Love had graced us but for a moment
And like two ships passing in the night
We sailed on with nothing but our sails waving goodbye

But my ship begin to sing
And it was you who stirred this melody
You who's touch ignited my pen strokes
Under which my notes turned to song

Bracing myself I turned the helm
I readied the canons lowered my sails
Setting a course after you and gaining speed
I soon arrived at my courage

I stood, I screamed, I yelled and it passed
The moment I mean in…Read more

Here's a thought

Sometimes love doesn't start off with a splash. Sometimes a slow trickle here and there that steadily gets faster and faster as it grows into a strong current flowing towards an ocean that is much deeper and wider than any splash. 

I think my time to leave has come

I think my time to leave has come
To push off into the unknown
To face the light would just blind me
So darkness shall be my keeper now

Maybe I'll find my peace
Maybe my soul can finally rest
But I already know my heart
Will never be still

For even on the other side
I know that it shall be yours
To beat eternally for only one
But not one to beat for it

To feel anything would be a blessing
But all I feel is a vastness of nothing
No anger or hate
No compassion or empathy

I do feel love however
Love of your soul
Love of your…Read more

New York

I have run away to New York City for the week to escape from what I can only assume is the depressing realization that I am about to turn 25. With only 11 days left till this deadline of adulthood I'm making an attempt to "find myself" in the big apple amongst the cultural scenes of music and art. Ive find myself staying in Harlem where, during the 1920's and 30's, a renaissance of the African American culture in music, religion and fashion took place. I've seen people from all walks of life trudging or…Read more

I Think I'm Ready To Grow Up....Crap

My name is Robin. I am 24 years old, I live at home with my parents, I'm a wannabe musician/songwriter and I am a man-child. Ive had a somewhat easy life with a loving and supportive family, Friends who I care about and who care for me, and I have felt the sting cupids arrow (this is a recent development). So you could say I have a good life and you know what? You're right. It's time i stop taking it for granted.....maybe we can start tomorrow.. haha just kidding.
I work for my parents when I'm not being…

Words, Actions and Fears

"A good person can not live by powerful words alone, they must enact these words in ever moment that they are granted breath."

I have succeeded at many things in my life but I failed at many more. I do try not to let these failures haunt me, but I must admit I am still learning to push past these...certain fears I have. To be alone is one such fear. I have spent much time wondering if the road that I have chosen to take will lead me to a lonely and empty end. Will I look back on my life and smile or will I…Read more

Paris

Why do I write? What am I trying to accomplish? Maybe it my constant search for self that drives me in my writing. Or maybe it's my sense of wonder In a world that I am just starting to scratch the surface of. I remember sitting at my high school graduation back stage, waiting for them to parade us on, wondering to myself what happens now? A group of girls in front of me were talking about their plans for summer, others were talking about their college plans and how they are going to stay in touch. I just…Read more
