    so you want to know about me
    there is nothing about me to know
    through many eyes, i don't even exist
    though I exist, only through a few eyes, those eyes only wish for me to perish

    For I Am Already Dead

    my eyes tell of a sad story
    my eyes tell of a sad song
    my eyes tll of an emptiness
    my eyes tell of nothing at all
    my eyes use to adore the lonely stars
    my eyes no longer see the beauty in them

    For I Am Already Dead

    somebody yelled, "you have an old soul"
    somebody yelled, "you are ugly"
    somebody yelled, "you will never amount to anything"
    somebody yelled, "you are a demon, how could you not believe in God"

    somebody cried, "He Is Already Dead"

    what they all yelled and cried
    all was true
    so lonely
    it is a bird i want to be
    it is a rose i want to be
    it is a tree i want to be
    yes a tree!
    i shall stand tall like a tree!
    i shall live long like a tree!
    i shall never perish!
    FOR I AM THAT TREE!
    but am not that tree
    i am not that soaring bird
    i am not that rose
    oh what a beautiful rose
    it is a purpose, a cause, i want to be
    a human is what i want to be
    though i appear to be one
    i know i am not one

    For I Am Already Dead

    inside the eyez is love
    in the eyez is hope
    inside the eyez is beauty

    be not of what they wish
    yet of whom u r within

    be of spirit forth da soul live

    not dead nor sleep
    just thinking !

    poet u sent a motion that flies free
    be whom u be a human being
    eyez will see thee

    this what makes us continue forward to perfection .....

    FREE THAT *** & MINDS WILL FOLLOW

    Mind~$oul, there is so much feeling in this piece, my heart feels the isolation and abandonment that you express so well. But it dosn't cry. No, that would be faithless ~ 1poetsought

    Free at last, free at last... thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.

    Whoa, how familiar this flow feels-----the emotion in it, the sentiment reminds me so very much of my former days of dark poetry and penned despair. This is the type of poetry that heavily dominated the boards of Davey D, where collective souls came to vent, and we became friends & family. But if this pain is allowed to heal, it will strengthen you, and allow you to grow into a spirit more beautiful than you ever imagined. Flow & be free....

    This peace reminds me of my own themes a few years ago.
    Nice flow.

    Man you can't listen to what everyone says about who or what you are....You are indeed alive because your poetry lives to tell how you feel within...those who say you're dead are judging your life, but the Word of God says "Judge not that ye be not judged..."
