Introduction

Tell me where you'll pass.

 I'll make my own way, of course, but I wanna see the future

 

 

 

                                                                                                          Today

         is

          Yesterday

                         &

                           Tomorrow

 

                   You"ll only get do overs with poetic license.

Ahhh I didn't catch that, ty!

Silence

Didn't somebody somewhere say her silence will be the death of you?

If they didn't, they should have.

Young, so young, halfway thru your life.

May you live to be an hundred.

This is no blessing.

May you be cursed with time.

You have taken for granted once too many.

You have shouted and attacked and been petty.

You wanted a response because you're sad and lonely.

You desired something you couldn't give so you stole it.

You are tired and unhappy and the fault is your own.

You choose not to rise, and watched her drown.

In your sickness you pulled her down.

If her words never meant anything, perhaps you will hear,

the curse of quiet upon your ears.

You've earned solitary years of silence and a lonely grave.

Pity you'll be mourned for what you took, not what you gave.

Who, Really

Who really
Stops to drop a line
Who really
What once cost a dime
a payphone
not so long ago
A stamp 
A little further down the road
Who really 
When pressed for time
who really 
drops a line
Reads between
Untraveled miles 
And reaches 
Beyond that comfort zone
Who really
Drops a line 
To comfort
someone alone
Who,
Really?
