A Walking Contradiction

Poem By Zak Raz

Do you think you see, with eyes up ahead,

Me or the reflection of me, in the mirror inside your heart,

Can you tell me if you see, a face or a fright,

A man or a God, a heart or only dark,

Or would you like to know,

What I think I see,

in the mirror of your heart,

Is a man who is a walking contradiction,

Who is fire, who is ice,

Who is alive and who is dead,

Who struggles and repents,

Then sins and then forgets,

A man of paradox,

A Man lost in actions,

But found in thought,

Wandering in reflections,

In other people's hearts,

When he does not himself know,

What leaves him distraught.

The Stranger In White

Tread on the withered roads of life
Heaps of love and self sacrifice
Look around so you may meet
The Stranger in White


What fools these mortals be?
Empty shells of misery,
They love and hate, cry and weep,
yet every feeling left incomplete

What You Call Love..

What you call love,
Is an insignificant mockery,
of what it really is,


A desire,
To be approved, to be recognized,
to be held for, in a place
that brings joy to those,

The Nature Of My Kind

Time to meditate,
a place to resuscitate,
deep within this emptiness
the screaming silence that emanates,


I come knowing, knowing my fate rebound,
Wondering aloud, as I carry these boulders
these boulders that are weighing me down
I feel them creaking, tearing in me
