Darkness in you

I see the darkness in you

Maybe you see it in me too

Maybe it’s from having a father that wasn’t around

Maybe it’s from all the time you should have stood your ground

Maybe it’s from all the times you didn’t make a sound

Maybe it’s from the times you turned your real frown upside down

Maybe it’s from all the times you put on a show

You were hoping that no one would know

But I see the darkness in you cause sometimes it is in me too

No sleep

No Sleep Last Night

I couldn’t even fight

I tried to sleep for hours but things roll around in my head

I took a nap and woke up instead

I woke at 3 and 5

I cannot understand why

I’m trying to get sleep tonight

And hopefully my might

Will let me drift off into dream land

As long as I get a good hand

When the dreams are rough

I still won’t sleep enough

I want to see rainbows and gardenias

not end up like Ophelia.

Sometime it’s worth the pain

Sometimes it’s worth the pain to see you smile again

Sometimes it’s worth the pain to hear you laugh again

You never really leave

Cause I haven’t seen you and I’m crying on my sleeve

I see you all the time in my dreams

The more I walk away the more you come to stay

So it’s just something we gotta work through

Something that connects me to you

Discussion of Aesop’s Fable The Boys and The Frogs

The boys are playing at the pond. They see some frogs and throw rocks at the frogs. Some of the rocks hit the frogs so hard that they die.

Are we having our pleasure at the expense of someone else? Every time we exploit someone we might be killing them inside. Are we contributing to misery somewhere ? Are we contributing to life or death? We should strive for life and realize that things may be so bad for others that if possible, we should not contribute to others demise. Are you trying to lift up life everyday? Are we trying to put out the vibes that we would like to receive? Are we clear about our intentions? Sometimes we put out a vibe subconsciously or unconsciously. If you are getting a vibe that you don’t like make sure you are correct and don’t assume. If someone is killing your vibe sometimes all it takes is to let them know. Sometimes people are trying to help and they have no idea they sent out the wrong vibe. Make sure you are on the same vibe.

Cutting the Excess

Cutting out the excess

Limiting the stress

I could care less

How many times did I press

How many times did I assess

a relationship that was a finesse

An ingress of my happiness

There was a time when you cut off the excess

And it was the only time you got that bless

-ing

I mean where were we

but caught up in the excess

which was a fiery mess

Discussion of Henry David Thoreau’s Life Without Principle


“An efficient and valuable man does what he can, whether the community pay him for it or not (Thoreau, 380)”

What if one day the only jobs left were those that did not get any pay? What if the most important jobs were those that never got any pay? Mothers do not get paid but without the good ones we would be left with horrible people. If we didn’t get paid to do what we do, how many of us would still do that job? How many jobs would still exist? Are we spending our lives efficiently by doing what we love, what serves the most people even if we never get paid? Would you still be working if you never got paid? Is your job that important? Some of us waste our lives doing something we could never love, while we judge others that don’t make much but only do what they love.

Crowns

I looked for a crown to match mine

Maybe I was confused all the time

I didn’t see the whole thing

I only asked for simple string

I should have asked for everything

I can now see that there are things I have

that you cannot get anywhere else

so I should ask for things wide as asteroid belts

I should ask for all that I am

because I am beyond Abram

I have been renamed and you will be the same

We live in the skies

You were waiting for me to rise

Best Friend

I love you because you are my best friend

I can talk to you time and again

You are like me but what you’ll be we will see

You are smart and kind

You are thoughtful all the time

You make me a better me

You are the reason why

I can’t think of a better time

I love you because I choose you

I choose to see you through

I love you and I can’t wait for you to tell me

some of your secrets

I’ve loved you all along

And anyone who didn’t is wrong

I love you through all the universes

and I can’t wait to traverse it
