Emotions On Mars

I left my emotions on Mars,

I can feel us drifting apart

The deeper I float through

The dark,

Deep space seems to be as

Deep as these scars,

These scars start to make

Breathing a lost art,

Gasping for breath

Amongst the stars,

I left you a map with

The directions to Mars,

Just Incase you were looking

For the place where I placed

My heart

– Nick F. Hawkins

The Rivers

Divine presence is anesthesia for

For my soul,

My soul is the river that flows even

In the cold when it’s 32 below,

Below my cerebral roads where

I deplete the voices of my ego

I continue to row this mental

Sailboat along the tides

Amongst the waters of growth,

This river of consciousness keeps

Me afloat,

Staying afloat is a miracle,

A miracle that births hope,

Hope is a trail that is invisible,

Yet this invisible trail is the

Life long path that I coast

-Nick F. Hawkins

Infinite Light

Let the light enter

Your soul through

The vessels hidden

Beneath your scars,

Find the light centralized

Between the constellations

Amidst the stars,

You are the light that enters

The deep trenches of your scars,

You are the constellations,

You are the stars

– Nick F. Hawkins

Tunnel Vision

Exercising supreme focus

Within the moments

Will sweat out all of the

Problems and troubles

Of the day,

Living along the River banks

Of dreams to maintain

The mental flames that

Burns my internal chaos into

Submission amidst the

Ashes of the neurological

Land scape,

Supreme focus is the

Tunnel vision that

Keeps me sane,

This tunnel is the

Path that my soul

Craves to take

– Nick F. Hawkins

Convictions

Convictions are more dangerous

Than the lies that we hide behind,

It’s like the blind trying to lead

The blind by following the

Directions to intricate road signs,

If our world was a mirror;

Would our world die?

Because our world is a reflection

Of the Way we feel inside,

Convictions are the caterpillar

That’s afraid of evolving into

A butterfly because it’s

Scared to fly,

We are not our convictions,

We are just victims of the illusion

– Nick F. Hawkins
