Trying Too Hard - Poem by Peter Hall

Rock and roll takes its toll
Puts you down the toilet hole
You never make it in the fold
They never want to see your scroll

Calm their fears tickle their ears
Before they give you love and cheers
But you have to buy their beers
Their attention is far too dear.

On the shelf protect yourself
Or you're no good for anyone else
In the heat you'll just melt
In your heart this must be felt.

Too intense advice I lend
Trying too hard makes you pretend
It's all your fault if they don't spin
And listen to what comes out your chin.

Sometimes you just try too hard
To make it happen near and far
In your mind hop in your car
And take drive up to the stars.

Relax relax and stop the boat
You don't change the mess below
Release the catch and what's in tow
For love and life come as a flow.
