We say we want love but who fights for it?
Billions of people in this world, ask them
Some may respond
Some ignore it.
Me, I respond
Why can’t you?
No better time than now.
I guess that’s why they call it the present.
A real disease
Temporary insanity blinded by the things we don’t have
Losing more people to this everyday
Maybe if we conquered this flaw
We might find an answer to our own disarray
A desire to do something, especially something wrong or unwise.
Maybe if we realized this,
We might stop our own demise
If I told you that you were my inspiration would you believe me?
With every great love come great tragedy
But the only tragedy is I didn’t know you sooner
With such finds Juliet, I’m not sure if love conquers all
Hopeless as I stare at you in the moonlight
Even a few climbs seems so far
Juliet will you leave me so unsatisfied?
I guess the words I love you really can be poisonous.
I walk through the valley
Looking for an answer
Longing for clarity
Rain has soiled the ground
Causing even the deadliest spots to sprout life.
And then I realize,
Even the wildest of weeds hold the essence of beauty.
I see right through you
Don’t you know that you are beautiful?
You don’t need to show skin to feel sexy
Or to be sexy
This charade of sex appeal isn’t appealing
With everything so instant
I wonder if you think it’ll make someone want you for who you are
not for what you look like.
Your body dwindles as time progresses
Your mind sticks with you.
A bee’s dream
With such an enticing smell
Beauty this rich isn’t remotely deserving
So instead I pollinate
Time to move to the next
So, Until we cross again
I will tell your story of how I fell for you
Land of the free
home of the brave
“it’s the American way”
“Take advantage of your freedom, think”
Sell desire to those who seek
We award happiness at someone else’s despair
While greed spreads in reach
You gain everything
That’s probably why you have nothing.
You aren’t free until you can give and teach
This is what I wish schools would preach.
You know nothing,
You're just a boy,
Lost in the abyss of your own pride.
Confused in your simplicity,
And are clear others confusion,
Even faith can't save the blind.
Speak with your fists,
Shake with your heart,
Complexity is your only demise.
Find your puzzle,
Overlap your ego with understanding
and you will redefine rejection,
maybe perspective was all that was tried.
