YOU (2017)

You know who you are

But do you know me?

These words aren’t coming out

So easily

 

You know, I think it’s funny

But also, kind of sad

I guess there is no balance

To what we could have had

 

Sometimes life’s lessons

Make themselves difficult to be learned

They’re kind of like a currency

Just waiting to be earned

 

A currency I make

When I watch you from afar

And a currency I spend

When I’m sitting in your car

 

They’re expensive;

The types of tolls that this takes

A toll on me, a toll on you

Sometimes my heart breaks

 

From the sheer knowing

That one day it has to end

I wish I had a million lessons

To spend on you, my friend

Make It Through The Day (2008)

She’s fighting with her dad again;
He’s getting in her face.
She’s trying to imagine leaving
This God-forbidden place.

All she’s ever wanting
Is to run away and hide.
So maybe now she finally will
Just blend in with the tide.

She’s sitting in her room right now.
He’s banging on the door.
She rushes to the window
And takes her feet off of the floor.

She doesn’t know which way to go
As he starts to pick the lock
She just knows time’s running out
According to the clock.

He’s breaking down her door right now;
She’s getting in the car.
She hears him bellow out with rage;
I don’t know where you are!

She sees his face all mad and red,
Peering down the street.
She’s laughing as she hears him scream:
“I’ll find you, you little *beep!*

The windows are getting foggy,
As the air starts growing thick.
She doesn’t know which road to turn on,
She doesn’t know which one to pick.

Her head starts spinning faster
As her wheels start going slow.
This might end in disaster, she thinks,
As it begins to snow.

Drip, Drip (2008)

Drama, disaster
Pain and dismay.
To cry on a shoulder
Wouldn’t keep the thoughts away.
Does life really suck?
Overall it does.
Beer, no money
And fights, just because.

Tear drops, then blood falls
Slowly down her wrist.
It trickles, and tickles.
Her hand in a fist.
Her boyfriend, he hugs her:
Says it’ll be okay.
She shakes her head no,
It won’t. Not today.

Long sleeves and bracelets
Cover it up, does the trick.
Their time, they won’t waste it.
It’s not important, not this
Her face is a smile,
But her heart is a frown.
She wears it always;
Her clad-iron crown.

She knows she can’t stop it;
She’s not ready to yet.
She reaches up and touches;
Her eyes are all wet.
She looks down and sees
The knife in her hand.
She knows this will hurt:
She knows that’s the plan.

Devil’s Little Girl (2003)

Unkept promises,
Life is bad.
She soon will lose everything
She ever had:
Her sisters hate her,
Her mother’s frail.
She wants to kill herself
With a nail.
So go to Hell,
You stupid hag.
All you’re worth for
Is a filthy rag.
Go curl up and die,
Say bye bye.
Nobody loves you,
Go and cry.

“I turned on the evening news, saw an old man being interviewed, turning a hundred and two today…”

I believe it is impossible to trash on Kenny Chesney’s hit Don’t Blink. Even if you are not a fan of country music, just listening to the lyrics could make you come to realize how powerful the message portrayed is. Those days that are so mundane you feel it is hard to bear are made so much better when you turn on your Pandora account and hear those first few chords sound out. It really makes you think about what you are doing, and how your actions right now will determine your state later on in life. Would you want to look back and find that you have wasted 80 years working yourself into the ground? Or to look around and find that while you were so busy trying to ‘make it,’ that you disregarded your your friends and family and did not build  any solid foundations for lasting relationships? Maybe it would be best to slow down, and appreciate the way your life is right now. Eat healthy, exercise regularly, laugh often. Balance your work with your play. Pay attention to the people in your life. Show them love and listen to what they have to say. Most importantly, love yourself! http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/opening-lines/

You’re Smarter Than You Look …

You are in the break room with a coworker that you don’t really like. They are trying to heat up their food, but the microwave won’t turn on. You watch silently for a few seconds, trying not to laugh as they begin to act frustrated. You saunter over, make eye contact, then plug it into the wall. As you begin to walk away they mutter, “you’re smarter than you look.” How do you react? Would you be offended, because they are implying that you look dumb? Or would you take it as a compliment, because you’ve heard that brains and beauty do not go hand in hand? Is intelligence something that you can ‘see’ in another person? Is beauty only skin deep? Who’s perception of beauty are we trying to live up to, anyway? Everybody has their own unique level of intelligence, and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. It does not need to be just one or the other. I believe it is possible for somebody to be brilliant AND beautiful.  http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/why-thank-you/
