You made

Upset me

Bothered me

Caused me some pain

So if it‘s all the same

Keep your

Negative words

Critical words

Comments so lame

To yourself

Where they belong

Some comments

You see

Are not worth

Ever setting free

Letting go of

The ones you speak

So if you don’t mind

Could you just

Be quiet

Satisfaction

Satisfaction

Is so hard to find

There’s alway more

You want in mind

More time

More money

All the latest toys

More joy

More peace

All the latest looks

More, more

There’s always more

Gotta learn

To be satisfied

Satisfied

To live life to the fullest you need to give love

First Love

My first love

My first love

Thinking about my

One first love

Was she who I sought after

Maybe another

In my heart

I’m not truly sure

My first love

Everybody Knows

Everybody

Knows a little bit

About a lot

But not much

About the important things

Which carry a life


How to love

Without any strings

How to live

When life stinks

How to laugh no matter what

May come each new day

Words Are Like Walls

Words Are Like Walls

They can box you in

They can put up barriers

Which can't be broken

So you need to be careful

Of the words you say

Treat them with loving care

Don’t let them swing or sway

Ask yourself why before you do anything. If you don’t like the answer don’t do it.

Letter

Wrote a letter

Just the other day

To myself

Had much I needed to say

About how my life

Hadn’t panned out

How I wanted it to

Without a doubt

I had some really good times

But also a few

Times of sadness and

Times of woe

I also told myself

How I braved

The storms, came out much stronger

But also battleworn

I ended

By telling myself

To seek to be strong

As more storms

May one day come along

As the years wear away

At my health

With each passing day

The Truth

I’ve become so frustrated

I’ve been wearin’ a frown

Cause this world we live in

Is goin’ down, goin’ down


People just don’t wanna see

The world we’ve now become

They think everything’s ok

Everything is fine and done


But if they’d take a little time

View the world with open eyes

They’d see the truth is there

Right behind all of the lies

Sunset

Is it time

To watch the sunset

See the sun

Drop below the horizon

The day is now done

Darkness comes

To bathe the whole world

In pale shades

Nighttime is unfurled

Each day dawns with new possibilities you only need open your eyes wide to see them.

Firsts

Firsts

Are those moments

Which happen

And

When they happen

Once done

They can never be

Born anew

Gotta enjoy

The firsts in life

The first child

The first step

The first word

The first friend

The first day as a teen

The first car

The first job

The first glance

The first date

The first kiss

The first love

Graduation

Marriage

Other first which come

Gotta enjoy

The firsts in life

Everybody Knows

Everybody

Knows a little bit

About a lot

But not much

About the important things

Which carry a life

How to love

Without any strings

How to live

When life stinks

How to laugh no matter what

May come each new day

Time

Time

We all want more time

More seconds

More hours

More days

To do the things

We want to do

Problem is

We all have a

Preset clock

Which daily goes

Tick tock, tick tock

Winding down

The seconds

The hours

The days

We’ve been given

To walk

Among the living

When the clock

Runs out

There is no doubt

The time is done

Satisfied

Why do I always

Want more

Than I already have

Why can’t I ever be

Satisfied

Satisfied

By who I am

What I have

Never wanting

Never seeking

To grab hold

Of what I can’t

Grasp in my hands

The unattainable

Why can’t I ever be

Satisfied

Satisfied
