Because I Say So: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Life is filled with magic -- because I say so

since I am insisting on making it that way

negative assessment I don't need to know

so it doesn't really matter what others say.

It's a personal journey on our chosen map

we are responsible for each step we make

all recipes for life are a brainwashing crap

the only rule being based on give-and-take.

Whatever we have it took us something to invest

we have to show our love to get love in return

life may end up mediocre as we aim for best

usually if at some point we refuse to learn.

Problems are issues we don't want to address

otherwise it's just another thing for us to do

that's how it all may turn into a big mess

when we don't follow intuition's cue.

This world is enchanting because I say so

since I alone choose what of it I'll ever see

and it doesn't matter where in life I may go

how I experience it will always be up to me.

Sunny side is just as real as the one in shade

and it doesn't take some dreamer to believe

but it always takes someone who's afraid

not to choose life they would rather live.
