Lying and Crying

Tryin’a be something your not
Wanting what you haven’t got
Never satisfied always lied
Never satisfied always cried
Knowing that something is wrong
You’ve felt this all along
You’ve forgotten how to sing
Life’s glorious primal hymn
Never satisfied always lie
Never satisfied always cry
Trying to just get out
Trapped by worry insecurity doubt
The truth is just what you believe
How you interpret what you see
Never satisfied always having to lie
Never satisfied always wondering why
I wish you could see what i see
A little girl so pretty
Intelligent clever cute and funny
Maybe if you knew this
You’d be happy
But you just keep on
Trying to justify all your lies
All alone only then you cry
Boring job Working nine to five
Two kids a husband
You’re his wife
You’re owned by another
He’s a friend an addiction not your lover
So you accept all you are is lies
The truth is a memory
That’s why you cry
Routine monotony blinding wonder
How much more til you go under
Living experiencing solely pain
Wishing you’d be washed away with the rain
Your not what you thought you would be
Living your life through your children
At least they’re happy
The thought that someday they may lie
That you wont always be by their side
Can you let them go
Let them cry?
Not satisfied, living a lie
Not satisfied, life’s predictable dry
Beauty wonder amazement
Just a distant memory in your lament
Melancholy,  it’s all you live,
Melancholy is all you can give
Throwing opportunity away with your lies
Didn’t find an answer so wasted tears fly
Always trying to be satisfied
Every lie is justified
My answer is love nothing more
Nothing less
Love yourself
You’re more than second best
Just let go
Let go of this mess
Play have fun eliminate stress
Inside your just a little girl
Eager to experience the wonder of the world
You won’t have to lie
Wasted tears won’t fly
You’ll be satisfied
You’ll know why
You’ll actually for once feel alive

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
