The Root of all Life

me
there are people like alcohol
deceiving, transient,
addicting yet dissatisfying
leaving you with wreckage
they can only show you momentary joy
before poisoning you and reducing you into ash
allowing you to set your soul ablaze

then there are people in this world like water
pure and magnificent, soft with strength
moving mountains with patience
they will cleanse and nourish you
quenching your soul’s thirst
they will speak miracles to you

remember this love.
when you need to replenish your soul
and you’re tired of the carnage of the poison
find water among the contamination

The Complexity of Myself

img_36621.png

I have traveled through different worlds
My flesh has touched many galaxies
It has maps of old tracings
That could make constellations jealous
My tongue has spoken languages that have been extinct
And my body has roamed through exotic realms
That turn your very perception into stardust
I’ve dipped deep into the unknowns of the sea
The darkness always welcomed me
These eyes know colors that don’t exist
They have made paintings out of gray
My mind has surpassed the physics of our being
It’s wandered into dimensions only God speaks about

So what makes you think you could understand me?
