Everything’s Zen – Original Poem


Everything’s Zen
Everything’s dead

Sex, blood, tears and pain
Swimming in a pool of misery
Gluttony is laughing as we bleed out our innocence into this dirty pool we call life
Once clear with a future of hope; now murky and hazy

Everything’s Zen
Perfection in our eyes
Each drink a new beginning; a new hope; a new lease

There she is
Is she a trophy for the night or the answers you seek?
She is beautiful in all this blindness
A nectar of temptation

Looking back you get the secret smile
The drink tells you she is the one
All your dreams wrapped up in this vision

You swim over only to be pushed to the point of drowning
Swim for the dream or the shore for survival?
Confusion sets in


Another drink
Another drug
Another voice telling you to go

Everything’s Zen
In this perfection, doom is your destiny
Traveling down a road filled with bones and decay

Everything’s Zen

Just smile
Hold your breath
Let gravity pull you to your final rest
