'Ego'

Poem By Kelly Seale

My words this time, are from the hip,
Emotions felt, my ego stripped.
Realizing now, the pain I've caused, the heart's I've broke,
Are serious and real, not some joke.
It was never a game, yet I still played,
Now, the consequences must be faced for the mistake I made.
Forgiveness I ask, for the human stain,
Rebuilding the trust...
Only time will tell, for healing heart's sake,
I must refrain.
A man needs to know his limitations, keeping his priorities straight,
Especially when others heart's are at stake.
And the heart's I've broken, the relationship's wrecked...
Of those dear to me,
Are all because I was too blind to see.
And because I was not man enough to keep my ego
In check.

Look at me.
You see yourself as a dandelion,
one of many, and not at all special:
Yet, still considered a flower by some.

Almost all of it good times, great times

And now the rain.
I wish I was on cloud nine with you.

Echo deep inside my head
Pain so intense, so deep
You wish you were dead

They say that there is a light, at the end of the tunnel,
they say there is Life

'Silent Bird'

Silent Bird, whispering through the night sky-
Searching for your prey
with a keen, lighted eye.
They are out there, hinding in the desert bush,
