Open No More

All through my life

Reached out my hand

Bared my soul

Only to be told

It made me less of a man.

 

Insecurity

Lack of self control

Deflection

My penance

Fury you couldn’t command.

 

Don’t reach for my hand

Just like the door

What was once open

No more

Time to take a stand.

 

Red balloon

We all float down here

Time to face your fears

Got exactly what you wanted

Ah, sweet irony – isn’t life grand?

Hush, Hush, My Darling

Hush, hush, my darling

Spare your breath

Save your words

What you want to say

I’ve always known

 

Hush, hush, my darling

Close your eyes

Rest your worried mind

Soothe your troubled soul

Time for pain now comes to a close

 

Hush, hush, my darling

I’ve got your hand

You are in my heart

Here I will keep you

But now I have to let you go.

Civil War II

A nation on the reset

After a historic run

Political spectrum – sided

Divides us

Citizens take to the streets

Outbursts and riots

In question…

President-elect integrity

Brother will attack brother

Fervor and anger and intensity

Bang – Shots fired

Verbal jabs

Brutal atrocities

One left to wonder

Battling over lack of integrity

Without integrity

Leads to where?
