Mark Dillon Poems
Would It Really Matter
Would it really matter if we didn't get up today.
Didn't go to work and just stayed home to play.
If we just stood idly by and left the work undone
Cast away the chores and just went and had some fun.
Whoever set the precedence of working through the day
To come home jaded tired, exhausted from the fray.
Must have had a sad existence tied to the work ideal
just like running endless circles on the hamsters wheel.
All work and no play, the bills, they cripple and sometimes slay.
Those who don't take time to stop and say
'What about me, this is ...
Free My Mind
As I walk here on the beach,
all trials and woes out of reach.
I look out at the deep blue sea
in a bid to rediscover me.
Its gentle calmness soothes my mind,
its gentle waves, the blowing wind.
So far away now my thoughts they fade,
as through cool waters I slowly wade.
