I Was

playing

I was a boy throwing sticks
The chestnut tree so tall
Hours every day
The prize that would not fall

In driving rain before school
I would try to hit
The autumn’s last prize
Never doubting it

“Conkers” was the game
On a string to split
Oven baked on a string
That final hit

And I remember that
A life so simple and pure
So free in innocence
That life endures

In Everything

Beauty, so subjective
Yet it is
Whether we say so or not
Yet it is

In its existence
As it is
Whether we say so or not
As it is

Never our choice
Because it is
Whether we say so or not
Because it is

Never to have or hold
What is
Whether we say so or not
What is.

Stoic.

 

Breaking Point

Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc. (Official Video)

Today I found it!
That point we all ignore, but…
We know it is there.

When we are done
The point of no return
And I am free.

Shackles gone forever
Cares mean nothing
Floating on a breeze.

I will ever be the little guy
Guitar on a ledge
Beyond the world.

Feel Good!

Stoic.

In The Playground

e897b531aa30fa460bc1e79e2c2ce634--carousels-pull

Many things may never change
A merry go round year to year
Spun so fast we fall away
In a spinning world of day to day

Scuffles upon the monkey bars
With every year we show the scars
No recess here in this playground
Lessons taught but lies abound

So I will take my ball back home
The game was sometimes fun to play
Bruised and broken I have found
Little fun in this playground
