Want to Trade Lives

My life sux he said.
I’d just as soon be dead.

I replied, want to trade lives?
As he searched my eyes.

I have that power.
So don’t cower.

It’s not forever.
And I can make it all better.

How would you do that?
Oh, well I wouldn’t stand pat.

I’d open my heart.
And make a new start.

I’d smile and be happy.
And sometimes a little sappy.

I find beauty in the world.
Maybe dance in a swirl.

I’d get rid of hateful.
And be forever grateful.

For your thoughts are the key,
To your destiny!

If My Dreams Came True

If all my dreams come true,

Would I cease to be blue?

Would I be undaunted?

If I got everything I wanted?

Surely life would improve.

And I’d find my groove.

Or would more problems ensue?

I just have more to see to.

So I’ll just be happy here.

And spread some cheer.

And if it happens anyway,

It will make my day!

Solid Gold

Solid Gold

It’s so cold,
I found a lake of solid gold.

It must have been there all the time.
Now I’m going to shine.

It’s mighty mysterious.
I must be delirious.

So just in case, please don’t spare.
The shares.

About my lake of solid gold,
If I may be so bold.

A Son

I prayed to have a son.
Oh, how we’d have fun.

He would carry on my name.
And feel no shame.

I could watch him grow.
And he’d make me smile when I was low.

I’d teach him to skate,
And I know he’d be great.

I’d buy him a baseball glove,
And teach him about true love.

I’d tell him a joke,
And buy him a coke.

I’d tell him about the mystic.
Just for kicks.

And when he was grown,
I’d be proud of the seeds I’d sewn.

Spiritually Connected

Feeling connected?
Well, you’ve been selected.

He came to me in a vision,
And told me of our special mission.

He said let it begin.
For it never ends.

Forget life as you know it to be.
And serve the One you can’t see.

Heaven awaits.
So walk thru the gate.

You’ll never be deselected.
If you’re spiritually connected!

Emotional Paradise

It seemed I had but two emotions.
But then I received a potion.

Anger or feat,
To the point, I couldn’t care.

So I dug a hole,
Straight to my soul.

The potion hit me like a ton.
And it made me see the sun.

It smiled and said,
Before long you’ll be dead.

Please look at the light.
Shining so bright.

Try happy, joyous, and free.
And see what you can be.

Try my advice,
And you’ll find emotional Paradise!

Impatience

Why must I hate,
When I’m late.

It really grates,
And puts me in a dizzy state.

I must be there at eight.
Cause I have a date.

But it must be fate,
That I have too much on my plate.

Maybe one day these feelings will abate.
Until then I’m at a stalemate.

Let’s Play a Game

Ok let’s play a game,
We need to reprogram your brain.

We’re going to drive you insane.
And nothing will ever be the same.

We will take you to the brink,
And there you’ll find a link.

But you don’t get to click it,
Because you already own the free ticket.

The deal’s already done.
And the fun has begun.

You didn’t know it,
But the name of the game is Dead Poet.

It won’t be rags to riches,
It will be tags and pitches.

So when your brain starts to scramble,
Try not to ramble.

As you ascend to a certain level.
You’ll be able to revel.

So put down the knife.
You’ve won free poems for life.

Reversed the Past

After all the damage was already done to you.
You always thought you’d pass it on to them.

The fear was always there.
But life’s struggles got in the way of it stopping, you mused.

But then a moment of clarity in the twilight.
In your heart, you knew you’d stopped the cycle.

You had reversed the past!
But what about the reflection of their new past.

You know it’s up to them now.
Just as it was up to you!

Really Random Thoughts

As I was sitting down in my recliner,
I heard I love you!
But, I’m the only one home.
I replied I love you too!
The voice responded, who are you talking too?
I said, everyone.

And the voice smiled and laughed.
We laughed so hard we cried.
Don’t let anyone know it sniffed. Through tears of joy.
About what I responded?
That you laugh about talking to no one.
My lips are sealed!  How about you?
