Rush Hour Worry

Always in a hurry.
I need to stop with the worry.

Why do I rush?
I need to stop and hear the hush.

I’m excellent at stress.
I must confess.

So what I do is not in jest,
I look at how much I’ve been blessed!

She Was About to Play the Jukebox

She was about to play the jukebox.

It was 1982.

I said, play some Waylon.

She said I’m more into Hank.

She was about to play the jukebox.

I said, Whiskey, Bent, and Hell Bound?

She said A Country Boy Can Survive

I said, punch B 12.

She was about to play the jukebox.

I said, why that song?

She said it reminds me of someone.

I said who?

She was about to play the jukebox.

She said you.

I Dreamt About Having a Dream

I dreamed I dreamed of you,
It was perfect.

I was watching myself dream,
Floating like a cloud.

When all at once!
I was awake.

And I realized it was a dream.
Everything!
It had been a farce.
They began to laugh.

I smiled.
I felt silly.

Because it’s all a dream.
Or is a memory.

That one day will merge,
If you so urge.

Being a bore?
It could be a chore.

To go to your core.
And find the door.

Then, what’s it for?
Promise there will be no gore.

According to lore,
But still, there’s more.

So it’s either, or,
Will you please help the poor.

And your reward is to roar.
And of course, soar.

When the world is tore,
You will stop the war.

4 you’re the 1
it is 4

Just Wondering

Just wondering.
No conclusions…Just wondering.
No Answers,
Just wondering…
Why?
Just wondering…
I wish I’d die.
Just wondering…
Why am I here?
Just wondering.
Is that okay with you?
Just wondering.
Is there more to life?
Just wondering.
Can I believe, Whatever I want?
Just wondering.
Can I change my mind?
Just wondering.
Mind if I smoke?
Just wondering.
Is this all just a game?
Just wondering.
Will things ever change?
Just wondering.
Why am I always wrong?
Just wondering.
Am I Normal?
Just wondering.
Does anyone love me?
Just wondering.
Why so many questions?
Just wondering.
I’m enough.
Just wondering…

White Noise

I was there,
Crossroads everywhere.
I looked around,
And I knew.
It’s my choice.

White Noise

Nothin coming from you,
Sounds in my head,
My heart racing,
I’m chasing.

White Noise

Saw a friend,
We got lost,
In a bottle of Beam,
Got to ridin,
Tore through Nashville.

White Noise

Met some women,
Had some fun,
Broke some rules,
Loved it,
Let’s do it again.

White Noise

Had a blast,
Now it’s past,
But it still lasts,
A blast from the past…

White Noise
The End.

Some Things You Can’t Change

Like a dog who still chases cars,

After being hit.

Like an alcoholic who still drinks,

After cirrhosis.

Some things you can’t change.

Like the mom who still loves,

The addict son.

Like a sister who still loves,

The failed brother.

Some things you can’t change.

Like a heart who still loves,

The one who was wrong.

Like me in me!

Some things you can’t change!
