Some Didn't

Something tells me
the time it doesn't
sit well with me
and worry I musn't

Someone told me
calmness it shouldn't
so easily come to me
and escape I couldn't

Somewhere calls me
saying happiness didn't
seek and find me
and smile I haven't

Somehow it remains
standing here hasn't
broken pieces of me
and kept together I haven't

Someway it will find me
looking around I shouldn't
focus too much on me
relaxing here I couldn't

Remember where

Changing yourself on the flipside
no less no regret on the inside
To look yourself in the mirror
see your face any clearer
After the day ended
the warm sun settled

Even the warm parts
overwhelmed the scared hearts
what you didn't know existed
in the spot before it shifted
You and me are nothing but small
even the rich can't have it all

Little thoughts and giving times
breaking up anything all kinds
Every little puzzle piece places
much sadness and grief on our faces
Having a family changes your wish list
grasps and takes what you've missed

Honey don't you remember
what its all about what's clear
maybe it's time to leave things
as they stand so shifty
Shaky thoughts and legs
dry mouth stopped my beg

Every negative moment
a drop in the bucket
a rock on its way
the drop assisted just
by the weight of it

Not heavy the hands
not heavy eyes
not heavy the heart
but the full weight
of all inside

The award you gave
rests upon my shoulders
when my head is turned
eyes seeking behind me
ever slightly

Cynicism such a regretful
creature grows from
your eyes while the rest
you hide from myself
and yourself, truly
starting to wonder..

Ponder, ponder, want
and wander.
Follow me.
