Be For After - Poem by James Darwin Smith II

Venture inside of me
See what is truly there
Seek answers within these thoughts
Feel every beat of this heart
Never missing something true
As this soul searches
For an adventure like never before

There is so much to myself
Please come explore
If get confused
Please implore
Never have fear
Feel safe and secure
Trying to express myself to you
Like I have never expressed before

Please have patience
I am beyond my own flesh
No need for complication
Doing my best
All in the name of beauty
That is what I love to do
Go ahead call me a beast
Like I have never heard that one before

Be the after of these worries
Before always felt so obstructed and blurry
Come within all of me
Please never have any worries
As I do shall do my best
To make you smile
I promise everything will be its worthwhile

After these eyes, this flesh, this body
Is a heart, mind and soul
Full of endless dreams and ambitions
Ready to have meaning upon the best of wishes
Thriving to expand its universe within

My after is an endless journey
Before was a limited venture
Strengthening all of these fears
Please, never doubt my intentions

These ambitions are now clear
There are many places venture within me
I would do my best
All of my best to make sure you were happy
Just please never be afraid to come inside
Made it the best I could, Inside of here

Before is gone
After has become very strong
Please, never have any fear
As I shall hold you within myself
So very near and dear

Life, Is not always happily ever after
But I would like to try to make happy happen
As much as I possibly could
Giving you all that I could ever give

So who am I now?
Do I look new?
Do I feel different after all?

Please stop feeding the full love they take for granted
I am hungry in the many ways of love’s many beautiful views

Sick of everything redundant and old
Love, Give me all of the unknown
And all of the brand new

Love, even today after all the pain
Love, I still have so much faith in you

What about me?
