thank you for letting me love you

July 18, 2020

thank you
for letting me
love you

I had a pocket
full of empty
when you picked me
and dreamt me
into another world
you’re a special
kind of girl

thank you
for letting me
love you

I was crying out
for cover
for a friend, a muse
a lover
you’re my salvador
you were everything
and more

thank you
for letting me
love you

there’s no way
to repay
and now you’ve
gone away
everything I ever do
only happens
cuz of you

anger into hope

July 11, 2020

 

I had no time to Hate—
Because The Grave would hinder Me—
And life was not so
Ample I
Could finish—Enmity
Emily Dickinson

bullets bombs and mayhem
centuries of hate
liars on my tv
paid to complicate

swords into plowshares
anger into hope
we only got each other
and there’s nowhere else to go

the man behind the curtain
ain’t who we elect
greedy getting richer
so many lives are wrecked

swords into plowshares
anger into hope
we only got each other
and there’s nowhere else to go

always question Power
resist the exploitation
don’t listen when they tell you
to hate another nation

swords into plowshares
anger into hope
we only got each other
and there’s nowhere else to go
