Consider It Done

My Mother once told me
The days will grow longer
And I will be stronger, too…
The pain, it will fade, and some day, I will say that
My dreams did come true…

All the wills in the world
Won’t save me from fear
And as I let it eat at a lie…
Life keeps on passing me by;

Oh, how blessed I must be,
To have everything surrounding me –
The gift of bliss,
Yet, here comes the quiver;
A cold breeze of worry…
Just remember –
Things will work out in their own way…
Everything is going to be okay…

Then, I am older
The fondness gets bolder
I may be forsaken,
But the moment is for the taking;
And as I let it eat at a lie…
Life keeps on passing me by.

Delete The “Want” and “Need”

Count everything twice,

Read it back thrice;

Every problem is

One step closer to a solution.

Must give a lot, not get wrapped up in delusions,

Fixed in institution.

Well, we came so far, now we can’t go back,

Cover up the footprints with dirt;

Get off the railroad tracks.

And it’s been so long since I’ve seen real love.

One sided guilt trips,

Riding on a mule whose carried all my luggage,

Weighed down with extra baggage.

Push forward to the top:

Today may be gone, but tomorrow’s a new start.

To think we are only divided by one common enemy:

The falsehood inside of us,

Well, maybe that’s the problem.

The right to let it out, not hide it;

Once

A test to conquer, not let this get the best of me.

Unstable, surely able,

With a gamble, I can live for eternity.

Peace is a state of mind,

Not to take refuge in pieces of the past’s

Storage – it won’t last.

The life I will live is in front of me,

But something’s gotta give.

Be grateful for what you have,

Take what you can get,

Try not to ask for more.

The solution to the problem is spirit,

A common thread that we all ignore.
