Knife Throwing Eyes

Latent behavior of unsatisfied


can lead one way or another

and only in the still of the

night can the true thoughts

of what life you dream of

can be lived or ended…..

The latter outcome leaves

so many tears and

much anger, some satisfaction

from those who provoke

and hit with words

like cement stones

to help end your way

in this world – a world

you and only you can

find a way to change.

Maybe reconsider that

second option for

those who cast the

judgments in their

knife throwing eyes

can only hope to find

an understanding

of the way a

mirror does not


they have the scope

in their expressionless

face to bring

in the hope – the

desires, and yearning

for the depth of

a leader when

the likes of them

are more of a feeder

in the greed of an

uninspired seed.
