Young & Free

Promise me
I’m promising
prone to leave
poor and thieved

all to thee
young and free

Made A List

I made myself
a list of all
the things I’d
wished I’d known

And ended it
by saying that
I hoped that
I would learn:

That loneliness
and truthfulness
can break a
man the same

I made myself
a burned out shell
in hope I’d
rise again.
