man made disaster

they say believe

he has the whole world in his hands

or so I heard

I’d like a word

about my life.

there’s more 👀👀

we’re here

who is we?

I’m still trying to find my way

still?

I thought I had it but shit happened

you still stepping right?

I’m over 40 and not the greatest

well shit, not many are. What else?

I want to know love

ok, do you love yourself?

sometimes

and?

There’s work to do I know

I’m here and I’m never leaving

no question mark needed.

I’m not okay ?

the phone is not charged

no music

my twin looks great with braids

i have no hair

that Chinese food dinner i was craving

streaming service got the money early

that beautiful man with a nice smile

just opened the door for his wife

my favorite white T-Shirt

mistakenly washed with the color clothes

that kid I couldn’t wait to have

just painted my living room with chalk

I’m going to take a nap in the car on DND

because I’ll be better than ok.

Carousel

lights up

showtime

get in line

greatest show on earth

watch the birth

of the mood, of the moment

don’t mind the lights

it’s the story they tell

I know it well

you me together again

1 year on, 1 year off

it’s time for my heart to go soft

last time I come around

you want to know what I’ve found?

Peace

brotherhood of the traveling drawls

traveling from state to state

there’s no debate

dropping those draws

nameless and shameless

one life to live

can you give some grace?

I didn’t learn the right way

relationships never smooth they say

so I go from bed to bed

hoping to heal the dead

monotony inside of me

judge if you must

but trust I’m having a great time

or am I lying?

why

we take pills to heal

we breath to stay alive

we fuck to make babies

or make love, same diff

we stay in relationships

we are inauthentic to be liked

we know wrong but do it anyway
