I Want A Refund

No deposit and no returns

I can’t believe how life burns

Chews me up and spits me out

Of its intentions I have little doubt

It makes me suffer and wants my soul

Leaving me to feel like I have no control

Still I’m caught up in what is the game of life

And it is forever and ever going to cause me strife

But what is easy has so very few forms of worth

So as long as I am allowed to be here on earth

I am choosing to live each and every minute

Like I am existing in life’s game to win it

One foot in front of the other every day

It’s beautifully molding me like clay

My hopes and dreams I will revive

Repaying me so that I can thrive

Your Love

Your love is unconditional, no matter how I feel

If I need some attention, you come and help me heel

When life gets all distorted, and things get rough

Your love shines a light, makes me feel I’m enough

Days get dark and dreary, emotions come to stay

Willow my little angel, you help brighten up my day©

An Ode To Depression

young-girl-on-a-walk-near-the-shore-at-sunset-2-picjumbo-com

I let you in, under my skin

Keeping you all for all time, but became a mime

Inviting you to go, you said no

Then want you to stay, hope I can live this way

A bird in a cage, filled with rage

Damn depression you suck, with you I’m stuck

Confusing my reality, set me free

The cycle is just insane, but yet you’re my bane

I push you away, beg you to stay

I must except this reality, you’ll never let me be

Afraid what I’ll find, in my mind

The fog keeps me in denial, it makes me so vile

Continuing I cope, filled with hope

That one day I’ll be free, no longer a you and me©

Mystery Of Our Depths

“We are all bodies of water, guarding the mystery of our depths, but some of us have more to guard than others.”~Deborah Smith

Light My Path

When the path before me was dark and I could not find my way
I looked out into all the shadows and thought I saw a little ray
Not knowing where I’m going or if I was even on the road
All I knew was that I carried a terribly burdensome load
Then through the misty hallways a light it did appear
Beauty of its presence did bring to my eye a tear
At last I can see my angel sent from up above
Sent to be my aide to fill my void with love

Some People…

Some People…

Some people are just so exasperating
I mean they are frikin damn frustrating

I want to go and put them over my knee
Treat them how they behave, like three

Make them pay for the way they act
Tell them all of my mind, that’s a fact

Shake and slap them with all my might
And yell at them all through the night

Tell them that they are loved by me
But how maddening they can really be

And if by chance that they were to see
Truth is I’d hope that they’d believe me

When I say that life is already so rough
Being upset at you makes it more tough

Would they even believe a word I’ve said
Probably not until after they are all dead

I’ll grieve at the things that I have done
But will be too late and they will be gone

Take Me To The Sea

Take me to the sea, let the water wash away my tears, let the salt heal my wounds and let the warmth of the sun encompass my soul.© ~Mac
