Rooftop Blues (Poetry Block 3)

Staring down at the city So peaceful from up above Yet my heart feels burdened And running empty on love The tears of the suffering Are in my every thought And I am just one person Looking down at this once beautiful city, now gone The streets are deserted No lights to shine a way What life is left here not burning Has been left to a temporary save So as I stand here Wings spread out for peace For the many that lay weary I will lay my life for them to be free Poet’s Thoughts:  When we take … Continue reading Rooftop Blues (Poetry Block 3)

The Poe Consequence by Keith Steinbaum

Solid Rock (Poetry Block 2)

Looking for a balance Or something that makes sense Tired of that emotion That fills up on emptiness It’s hard to find solutions When you keep on getting caught The next few days may look dreary But your faith will not Certain ground may be unstable Enemies and obstacles will knock But you always stand as the strong one Standing with two feet on solid rock Poet’s Thoughts: We all fall at one point, sometimes we stay down and out, especially when everything hits us all at once. But this poem offers hope that no matter what we face, no … Continue reading Solid Rock (Poetry Block 2)
