Sounds of the City

Outside his window the world goes by

Lost in the confusion he wonders why

The sound of a train and its sorrowful horn

Brings within a saddening scorn

Cars drive by with a roaring sound

Unable to move he cannot be found

Within his prison he sits in pity

While outside his window the cries of the sounds of the city

Trapped by his unraveling mind

Its only a matter of time

Soon the world will be nothing but silence

At the end of his defiance

Invincible Endeavors

Always attempting what was thought impossible
Trying things that others said was crazy
But he said all was possible
He said those others were just lazy
Incredible feats
Improbable acts
He thought never of defeat
It was all just facts
Within his mind stood no denying
All who saw said never say never
The fear would leave the crowd crying
For he accomplished such invincible endeavors
Until he choked on a piece of bread
And ended up dead

Purple Plasma

Out in the far reaches of space
Lived a most peculiar race
A creature like nothing ever seen
Was it scary, some would say so
It was one eyed, one horn a flying being
With a mouth like a bottomless hole
As it walked around
It left a purple plasma on the ground
Such a strange sight to behold
Until it would eat you up whole
