A busy week gone by
Another one has come
They never seem to change
Just keep repeating; it’s dumb

What can change a one week?
What can make it stand out?
Ever since I’ve been in the “real world”
That it can be done I highly doubt.

If you know the way
Please let me know too
I’d like my weeks to have meaning
And be a part of the few

An old guitar by his side
Together they’ve written so many songs
It’s got a soul of its own
Well broken in, to be played it longs

Long blonde hair
Sometimes bearded, sometimes shaved
Cowboy boots or all stars on his feet
Freedom is what he’s craved

Hits fall out of him
Like water from a faucet
Highs and lows throughout his life
Are the backdrop, they cause it

Listening to his music
You see into his soul
Take a listen to Tom Petty
And your musical education can be whole

Two of my friends now are one
A beautiful wedding, groom, and bride
I’m so glad to have been a part, playing and singing
And so happy they found one another I confide

I wish them happiness and peace
I wish them all the best
Above all I wish them joy
And pray that on Jesus they’ll continue to rest

Daniel and Hannah,
I love you both dearly
I’m praying for this new chapter
That in it you’ll see Christ more clearly

Putting together words
Making sentences that rhyme
Lines and meter
All together make poetry time!

Fever burning
Frying my insides
Body fighting to be well
Sweating, then shivering, like the changing of the tides

When will it end?
When will I feel like me?
Feeling defeated and weak
No light at tunnel’s end to see.

Crying out for help
No one seems to hear
Seeking understanding
But never finding a seer

No where to turn
No one to understand
When your falling and lost
No one to give a hand

So you pick yourself up
Paste on your pleasant face
March one foot after the other
And push on in life’s crazy race

Wiggling, smiling, attention seeking
Warm and friendly that’s what he is
Always there when I need a friend
When I go away he’s the one I miss

Sweet and kind, and a little bit hyper
I wouldn’t have him any other way
Because when everything seems wrong
Henry, my pup, you save the day!

Where do I go when I’m at whits end?
What can I do to get someone to mend
My sanity and bring peace back to me?

My savior calls for me to come
And my wife is a gift from
My creator to sooth every sore.

The dreamer has passed
But the dream lives on
In everyone hoping for a better tomorrow
Honor the dreamer
By seeking the dream
And bringing no others any sorrow

A world of equality
Opportunities for all
No matter race religion or creed
Leave behind arrogance
And selfish pride
Only then can society be freed

Freedom; an ideal
With tangible parts
Yet bigger than any one person can hold
So leave your burdens behind
Take the chips off our shoulders
And live a life that is nothing less than bold

Changing direction
Going against the flow
Beating the odds
That’s how I’d like to go

Yet I get stuck in the same mire
Falling down the same pit
Failing the same task
So I give up in a childish fit

But we must keep pressing on
Though we’re not perfect we try
Until our savior comes back
And to Heaven we fly.

On another note...

This is about my struggle to confront my fears of changing my direction all for a better life.
