Poem: Rock Star

Among these darkness fields weary,

Looking skyward,

Feeling life bleary,

Trudging alone hopeless liars,

Telling themselves that they too are fliers,

Angel wings beat at heel turns,

Friends leaving,

Trust no one—lesson learned,

Beat at carnage ‘til it’s true,

Make their faces like the pain inside of you,

You gave them time,

You gave them sweat,

And all you get,

Is that fiery chest regret,

Out in nighttime,

You walk these lanes,

No truck lights,

Consciousness waned,

For a dream, you killed a soul,

For a man with money—

You gave up real rock-n-roll,

For a gram of release,

You sold your lease,

Hitchhike home now,

That’s the option,

But sad to say,

Home is forgotten.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
