Canvas

Poem By Lesten WhitePigeon

Blank canvas soul of the earth
Dirt turned to mud by swollen rivers an tears
Cruel pain and sacrifice for birth
Colors so vivid it blows the mind
I wonder if I’m dreaming
I wonder if I’m dead
I feel the wind
But it feels fake
I feel the sun but it hurts
I find myself on a twisted path
The crunch of twigs is all I hear
From under my bare feet
I smell the floral field
I hope to end up at soon
I see what my mind wants to see
I carry myself the only way I know how
I cleansed myself in the river
Just to dirty in mud on my way out
In the water there was comfort
In this sun I hope not to fall in my shadow
Let the light gleam and pierce
What ever is in the way
My mine sees what it wants to see

Whipped

Is there anything that can help me let go
I’m tired of crying down this road
I’m young should I feel this old
I’m tired of being split

My Actions

Threw my actions and my evil distractions,
I fall to an infant of the world and truly
Deserve what I have earned for I am nothing,
And should be treated as such.

Run

Run feel the wind on your face
Run with your mind and let your spirit pull you along
Move your feet and join the race
For life can be summed in a song

Loud

Blaring horns inpatient morning rush
Airplanes forcing there way across the sky
Deadlines broken and dreams crushed
Bosses screaming with no reason why

Reality

Reality has no feelings, when it shows you the walk of life.
Rugged, embedded with truths that slice like a knife.
Sought feelings only seen threw a broken window.
Desperate hands that reach, never to get a hand full.
