“Friends”

they’re everywhere
yet
hard to find

with social media
one can see
when being left out

people choose who they want
to spend time with
to invite

they forget
but will miss
they smile
without an ear

looking forward
to being one
with my best friend
in Texas

“Hidden Existence”

Not everything that has wings
flies

Not everyone that has breath
lives

Not everyone who smiles
laughs

Not everyone who sleeps
rests

Not everyone who sees
understands

Not everyone who hears
listens

I used to be a Christian on the outside
but inside
the truth was a lie
