Unfaithful to Myself, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Unfaithful to Myself

I cry not because I’m about to die
But regrettably what I’ve failed to do
To myself I have not been fully true
Finding it easier to tell a lie

Wishing now that the harder I did try
This problem thinking I would soon outgrow
Yet, the falsehoods continued to flow
Oh why, oh why, for the life of me why

My lies repeated soon became the truth
Becoming that someone but not myself
Uncomfortable in the borrowed shell

All those secrets I hid destroyed my youth
I have sinned for was not true to myself
For this my greatest fear to burn in hell

Be not Afraid, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Be Not Afraid

Be not Afraid

He walked strong, straight into the darkened night
His shadow having been long out of sight
The moon that night was not be his beacon
He moves on to a voice that seems to beckon

What can be so important we may ask
Thinking that this be a dangerous task
Can there be such compelling inner strife
That without a question he’d risk his life

We will never know why such devotion
He was murdered in an altercation
For a sum of money he didn’t carry
Alone he died in a lifeless alley

From this event a lesson to be taught
So this fearless man did not die for naught
If there shall be a strong truth you perceived
Give everything until it be achieved
