Conversation Blues Poem by Greg Davidson


My life is a conversation
But they say there's nothin' to talk about
Tomorrow's so uncertain
And today's just full of doubt

My life is a conversation
But no one will talk to me
My friends have all gone
But no one's my enemy

My life is a conversation
I still got something to say
Can't wait ‘til tomorrow
I've gotta say it today

My life is a conversation
I got something to talk about
I don't want to whisper
I want to stand in the road and shout
