Life Is A Trip By: Michael Rios

Life Is A Trip

In MY mind
Life is a trip
So pack up your bags our plane leaves at six.
There is no telling where were headed
The futures in our hands,
You got the choice to stay home
Or go out and visit uncharted lands.
Stardom Island
Or the
Lost City of Love.

Or you can stay on loser lane
Fronting every weekend at the club
Thinking the only way to get out the hood is to sell drugs.
But drugs are the only things that will keep you in the hood
Living at your moms house
Out all night with your boys up to no good.
Talking about what you could have done
Instead of going after what you want
And doing what you should.

You had all your stuff packed
And were destined
To reach your desired destination
But laziness mixed with no self-confidence is a terrible combination

You were just too scared to face the ups and downs of life.
Blamed it on motion sickness,
I bet if you could go back in time
You would do it with the quickness.

Many people missed the flight in the past.
So don’t let you be the next
You just got to get up in do it,
It isn’t even that complex.
If you’re trying to be a hit
Then get a better grip,
And make sure the you inform the next man
About how life is a trip.

The Death of A Rose By: Michael Rios

The Death of A Rose

External Beauty exists only momentarily.
Splendor fades with age.
Life cannot blossom in the shade.
We’re all in need of the warmth of day.

Auburn petals are disowned.
Frigid air blows in the wind,
Bleach colored pixels cover the ground.
There’s nothing around you.
Some have passed away,
Others have migrated,
Emptiness surrounds you.

Your pigment has vanished.
Winters damage was too much to manage.
The condensed days and protracted nights,
Were overrun by layers of ice.
Death has arrived.

Who will mourn the loss?
Season’s change,
Snow turns to rain,
Love turns to pain,
The life of a flower and a man are quite the same.
Once you become admired and desired
It eventually ends at the hands of the gyres.

What an amazing weekend! After our show at the Roxy I found myself knee deep in liquor but swimming like Michael Phelps. Friday we acted a fool at Dodger’s Stadium Club. Saturday was extra cracking at the Castle Ivar. Now maxing and relaxing on Sunday. There’s less than a month of school left and I’m definitely going out with a BANG! Always remember when one stays optimistic and surrounds themselves around astonishing people, great things happen.
