Born to Build Bridges Back Home


I can’t stop biting my nails-

Nervous tics of the clock-

'Tic.. toc - Tic.. toc'

I dream of Mattydale-
Chillin on the trails
Wearin' two different colored
 Socks-

We were born to build bridges back home –

No one ever told us, how could we have known (x2)

Standin' over your coffin -

Feelin' as though I should paint it –

Color your demise –
win – win - 
Shit-uation –

I couldn't commit
& I fell into the pit –

We were born to build bridges back home -

No one ever told us, how could we have known (x2)

& When the Bridge crumbles

Beneath our feet

We'll meet under the rubble

& Play with the concrete –

We'll look back on our troubles

& laugh - Yeah, we'll laugh –
Ha-ha-
For we'll be Humbled

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
