Don’t Love Me

Don’t love me
I can’t dance
I have two left feet
I fall all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t sing
I am always too loud
I cry all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t run
I collapse after a lap
I faint all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t stay
I lust over anyone I see
I lie all the time

Don’t love me
I can’t live
I hurt everyone else before
I hurt all the time

Tears

Tears dropped down his eyes
His face a mosaic of pain and anguish
In his hands a lifeless body
So young, frail and completely devoid of soul

Tears dropped down her eyes
Her offspring spins on the icy battleground
All actions suddenly come to an end
Applause surrounds the stadium

Tears dropped down his eyes
She stands in front, nodding
In her hand was a new shiny band
Life’s journey was about to begin

Tears dropped down her eyes
The family all follow suit
She waves at the ones she loved
But never sees the returning goodbye

Letters on the Wall

The first time I saw a word on that wall
Was when the plague came along
We all hid in our houses so we would be safe
But someone went out to write four letters
And all he wrote was “LIVE”

The second time I saw a word on that wall
Was when the army took over
We were told that they would protect us
But someone went out to erase a letter
And all that was left was “LIE”

The third time I saw a word on that wall
Was when I was getting ready to start anew
I was told to follow in someone’s footsteps to be safe
But someone went out to erase all but one letter
And all that was left was “I”

Today that wall was taken down
It stood in the way of the construction of a building
I was told that I would be taken care of inside
But someone went out to write four letters on the ground
And all he wrote was “LIVE”
