Sunflowers

When sunflowers are young,

they face towards the sun

and follow it throughout the day.

Even on cloudy days,

they move their blooms,

searching for sunshine.

When I was young,

I faced the sun.

and looked to it for happiness.

I had many cloudy days,

where I couldn’t find sunshine,

but I found you instead.

Fork in the Road

Sometimes when you are at

a fork in the road of life,

you choose the wrong path.

Of course at the time,

you don’t know this

(Or maybe you do,

I’m not one to judge).

It’s usually much later

when its way too late to go back

and you’ve done irreversible damage

that you stop and think

“Well shit. I’ve really done it now.”

Sometimes you get fortunate

and can tread you own, new path

to avoid the problems

that you almost walked into.

However, you can’t expect a


“T” intersection to appear

and magically take you back

to what could have once been.

Sometimes you have to accept

that your life has changed

and you can’t have your dreams.

You have to make new ones.

And yeah….it fucking sucks.

Music in a Storm

Life is trying to listen to music

to drown out feelings

in the middle of the thunderstorm.

AS the storm gets closer and louder

you turn up the music

to try and drown it out.

It isn’t necessarily safe

and may make you feel better,

for the time being.

But in the end, you know,

the storm will end and so will the song.

so where does that leave you?
