Sometimes I Try

Sometimes I try
to render the future
in art.

Sometimes I try
to bring light to the night
set fire to words, worlds
means of being
beings of means
and craft of silence
something deeper
something more.

Sometimes I try
just to be
just to live
without dying
without crying
without being eaten alive
from within
by the demons
hungry to live free
possess me
and keep me locked away
in forever, darkness

I am a student in Miami, Florida. Painting is my other love. My first book, Sketches of Someone, is available through Thunderune Publishing.
