I Don’t See You

I gotta knack for tripping
those who think they know
who they’re speaking with,
what I’m dealing with,
who swear they know
what and who I should do
in the event that I feel used
abused and lonely,
who offer a friendly
quick fix
but I don’t take kindly
to those who want to bind me
with no intentions
of handling me,
or honoring me
when I’ve got
plenty to lose
from inside of me
with nothing
handed to me,
more taken from me,
what makes you think,
I’ll beg at your feet
prove your glory
push for you to end my worries
when anyone worthy
has yet to show themselves
to me

Starlets

they’ll burn
through tombs
as air and light fused

rising from ruin
scaling winds
as earth and rain welded

fiercely prying
through the sky
as melded fire and ice

relentless and brilliant
they’ll outlive the world
to shine for ages

Become The Realest

its time grow up,
the crying
and blaming
won’t ever be enough
this world is tough

to try to force it
as anything other
will only bring you to suffer

if your swimming upstream
you have to learn
to assert your dreams
control your feelings
and harness your ego
cause if you don’t,
then life will have it’s go

and it’s way
with your doubt
and your insecurities
your weaknesses
and obscurities

and in reality,
you’re gonna
hurt one way or another
whether you face
your truth or not
so why cower?

why play the victim?
why diminish
before you have finished?
why live life
flinching

accept the conditions
and start thickening
your skin

cause time often leaves
behind those
can’t become
their realest

and that’s real

– B. Brown
