Pinch those cheeks
Into a smile
Whether you walk
A step or a mile
Not only does it help,
It practically excludes the self
So you’re free to be free now
Go on, smile
It was never that my old ways
Of spontaneous deception weren’t serving me
They could get me whatever I wanted
But sooner or later, the rip tide comes
Thrusts you onto the ground, face full of sand
The sobs seemed unending
The force of it all nearly killed me
These poor souls, and who was I to parade
Around, stepping on hearts, carelessly?
I started to want different things
Things I was so unfamiliar with
I almost gave up, gave in to the madness
Almost handed my soul to the devil
Because I thought he deserved it
And I deserved him
But then, I stood up
Sometimes with such vague conviction
That this time, from here on out
I would never let another difficulty
I would help
Those who need me

Don’t hesitate to ask me any questions, related to writing or just life, I don’t bite….usually.

Some musings from September 2013
Just press play on this one. Two artists I personally adore, and who are quite local (to me aka East Bay, California, USA)

Little one, full of fear
Don’t be scared, it’s a jump and a tear
To the finish line, a Paradise Pier… come here, little pretty bitty
Can’t get caught up in the nitty gritty, it’s but a hop, skip, leap to the city
Flooded with lights, I can see your eyes bright, lit up in the light
You look just right, now clasp your hands tight around mine
