It by MwsR
Stillness makes you vulnerable
Quietness makes you scream
Inside things are changing, it’s a complicated thing.
Listening does not make you smarter
Just makes you a listener of things
It’s what you do for others, and what in doing it, it brings.
Foremost in your mind
It will be for a while
Not letting you go, that’s not it’s style.
Torment is what you place on your own self
And there is so much of it to go around
It will hold you up and then knock you onto the ground.
There will be those that beg it to go away
Those that know nothing else but it
And those that will try to rise out from the bottomless pit.
Success depends on your thoughts
What you say to yourself when it is going on
What you believe of yourself when you’re all alone.
No one can make you happy and free, but you.
No one can give you the right advice
The words, the actions, and it be true.
Older is a special thing
A song few ever get to sing.
Wiser and more pronounced
Maybe a little less likely to bounce
But still great quality
Great fortitude and intuition of reality.
Older is a privilege
Saving grace on life’s unpredictable bridge
Nothing is taken for granted
You can stay still, you’ve long since been planted.
Older is nice and calmer
Then when you had to be a charmer
People respect your mind
Even though you feel you are going blind.
It is both a time to rest
And to leave behind your best.
The ones who love you, have shown themselves to be true.
The ones who haven’t won’t ever come to.
Let the feelings flow
Take the good and bad, you know.
Things will always have 2 ways,
Let it compel you to pray
Get rid of your inhibitions, it will be okay.
If you let yourself, that inner spirit
Your heart will hear it.
Your listening heart will know
That other person’s beautiful soul.
Road by MwsR
The road ahead may not be where you imagined you would go,
It may not twist or turn but only lengthen so.
One must try to find a way making it bearable,
So you can continue if need be and if able.
On any road there is surprises, things not ever seen before
But you are the one who must search for more.
After all a road is available for anyone who goes searching
It can be simple or all consuming.
Travel smart, travel prepared as to not get lost or have to be trapped there.
If you find it keeps going on and on,
Keep hope inside you to get to where you belong.
When you crossed my mind,
It is because you were in my heart.
I will never get to see or hear you, I am torn apart.
You and I were never given a chance
Like others are.
I can still imagine you, when I wish upon a star.
Sometimes I imagine we are so close,
Yet I’m so far from reaching my heart’s desire,
I hate being burned by this hopeless fire.
Why does it have to haunt me,
Haven’t I wished enough in one lifetime,
Haven’t I cared enough to make you mine.
My heart has been heavy like a stone because of my
Wanting to be in your life,
Instead, I was cut from you by life’s wicked knife.
For a second, I thought it would finally happen
I could actually see through this life’s forest, finally
I thought it would for sure come to be.
But it didn’t.
You will never be sharing life with me,
And I feel because of the “what if’s” I will never be free.
Broken by MwsR
May be hurt but that’s not broken
Maybe fell but that’s okay
First a fool, then a nothing
But still trying to be something.
Too many chances
Too much clutter to push thru.
If only it was another time
A wide open space
But it is not.
Retracing too many questions left unanswered
Misunderstandings float around in the mind
It feels like death, not just being blind.
One word can replace so many more
Just by the tone or words used.
Taking upon your own
All the bitterness and wrong.
Losing not the many battles but the final war
Just because you feel
Because there is so much more
Left to have, to hold, to unfold
But alas it is too hard a task
Broken, that’s what will last.
I’m so tired of trying
So much like a gun that’s through firing.
I have the capabilities to do more,
It just isn’t worth all the allure.
Maybe it was a trial run, or possible misfires
Maybe my emotions are a liar.
Need me, only in case of emergency
It can’t be me anymore, you see!
I’ve done all I want to do
Remember it wasn’t me but you.
There is a shift in power now
I’m taking over, someway, somehow.
Better if you look for another opportunity
Because I’m putting you away for my sanity.
I wont get played no more
See we already been here, in this predicament before.
It’s nothing that it is the way it is
Just one to just dismiss.
There I said it, now you know
Don’t come to me unless you can show
What it means to say you care.
It’s more than words , you should be made aware.
