Today

Hear my words, I tell the truth, see my actions no reproach,

Outta here, out of touch, life’s a movie that you watch.

I avoided guns and drugs, stayed away from those who err,

My ancestry, it nags, yet I listen to the Lord.

Given facts are not the rules, not forgiven for the sins

Of the ones, who showed the way, next to losses are my wins.

Don’t let go of my dreams, that is why I live my life

Irregardless of you all, but sometimes I miss your love.

All we have is here and now, all we know is today,

Try let go of your past and discover your own way.

Yes, the future’s undefined, yes, tomorrow isn’t set,

Live this moment to the full, dance and breathe and place that bet.

 

Round Robin all day long, tit for tat, and scratch my back.

Float through life, be smart and strong, lost among a bigger deck.

Plan for something, makes no sense, be prepared, don’t be caught

Unprepared and unsure, sign intentions on the dot.

 

Overdoing everything, feeling, wrecking, clear my path,

Walk on glass and feel alive, feel submerged in own wrath.

My extremes aren’t based on views, built on concepts and sonnets,

Love and hate are not too close, when you’re burning cigarettes.

On doorstep no serenade, lost for words and found aim,

Romeo was likely right to depart before she tamed

All the love he brought with him. When the purpose was his love.

When he saw the purple sky and before it got too rough.

‘Ever after’ don’t exist, and existence undefined,

Add some memories to list, stick around for the fine.

Don’t complain, you ask and ask, and eventually receive

Leave your lane for better place, reminisce for what you leave.

Yesterday shall grant you peace, if you process its returns,

No Prime shipping on life’s lease, place the memories in urns.

Don’t recycle and don’t sweep under carpet what you missed,

Never go back in time, if it only gets you pissed.

Skeletons, just like your mess, don’t belong in wardrobes,

If you err it is OK, just remember, you eloped.

 

Round Robin all day long, tit for tat, and scratch my back.

Float through life, be smart and strong, lost among a bigger deck.

Plan for something, makes no sense, be prepared, don’t be caught

Unprepared and unsure, sign intentions on the dot.
