Is this life?
Nah it can’t be life
Do you want to be trife?
Nah I can’t live trife
Is this love?
This can’t be love
From heaven above
I know what I’ve done
Went the wrong way for too long
Couldn’t finish out the race
Weak hearted individuals
Get mislead wrong
Can’t ever stress the importance of a song
You can go against it or go along
You can be smart or dingy dong
Before I started this verse I was in a zone
Got to find the meaning to it
Digging for it like a dog to a bone
Let me off the porch
Feelings are important to everyone,
But should they be?
As I sit here,
I am disgusted with myself for my feelings.
They betray who I am.
We should not allow it to be this way,
So turn off all emotion and be safe from all hurt and pain.
There is a downside,
You will feel no joy or any type of happiness so is it worth it?
My Little Sister
She is an amazing thing to watch in her daily life.
Like a flower opening up to the early morning sun.
Always questioning why and trying to understand.
How can something so small in size,
Be so many things at once?
She can be my playmate
And she can be my enemy;
She can be so funny
And at the same time make me so mad;
She can be the perfect angel,
Doing as she’s told;
And she can be a little devil,
Trying to act so old.
She follows me around,
Trying to match my every step.
But one day soon,
I’ll be the one who follows her,
Making sure that her every step is safe.
Finally at night,
When she’s a sleeping her bed,
I look down at her and quietly say,
“She’s just my little sister…”.
A vast, albescent
Expanse of frigid
Frozen desolation where no
Warmth can thrive, no lonely
Heart can find solace. It was there
Among the deadened copses of trees
And gnarled shrubs burdened down with
Ice and frost, that my last breath of
Life was so painfully lost to the
Psychotic whim of the one who I so
Naively trusted. A surreptitious
Rendezvous was his plan,sad to
Learn he was no man, but a beast with
Malice unable to be quelled; the only
Heir to Hell. I couldn’t believe it even as I died.
Been on this earth,
For a good many years
I’ve seen good and bad,
In this veil of tears
Every day I learn something new
About people and things,
And I’m seldom blue
But when I do feel a little sad
As though life has really treated me bad
I go for a walk,
To renew my zing
And before I know it,
I start to sing
Ignoring the glances,
Brought on by my song
I just smile and keep singing,
As I walk along
How sad that the grave serious crowd
So deep in thought, their heads all bowed
Aren’t in on the secret that brings me cheer
I just sing away all doubt and fear
So if you’re burdened down with care
Just try walking and singing,
Soon you’ll be walking on air.
Life Is No Joke
Life is no joke especially if you drink
Or even go out in the cold with no coat
So you should think twice
And get on a boat that will take you
As far as your life will float
To higher levels were people will go
Right not left
Up not down
To stand on solid ground
And don’t look down
Because the word gets around that when you get on a boat life is no joke
The way you smile
All those cute looks
Makes me go wild
You’ve got me hooked
Seeing you in the halls
Not knowing if you know
I wish I could tell you
But I’ll leave you alone
You’ve got everything you want
Why would want me?
She snuggled closer to me as she slept in my arms last night.
Milk bubbles were all over the floor and her toothless smile.
Tiny toe squiggles and knee prints are scattered all over the floor tile.
But I forget everything there ever was before her…
Before her smile.
If we ever meet againplease don’t act surprised.
Don’t be fooled by my shaking hand
the weariness in my eyes.
My awkward limp is an illusion
a trick of your failing sight.
The wrinkles and scars disappear
in the blessedly weak twilight.
So let me hold my head up high
keep me young in your mind.
Let your memories be charitable
allow them to tell you lies.
Hope we didn’t waste the years
pray we didn’t waste our tears.
May time be kind to our souls
and bring us nothing but cheer.
Gusty wind upon my face
Rain upon my skin.
Hand in hand
I walk with my beloved.
Into the world of wonder we do go
Stepping into the unknown.
Together we walk hand in hand
Side by side,
Holding each other as if the world was ending.
A world of mystery we do enter
Anticipating where we will end up.
Side by side we walk
Into the night
