Flashback Friday Poetry: Right Decision

now i’m not a godly man
but by God baby i’ll make a stand
to get you if i wanted to
i’ll get what i want if i so choose
but i ask myself now do i want you
and i say, “Hell no baby you and I are through!”
so you best be gettin’ on the move
go on and get yourself somebody new
’cause i tell ya’ that’s exactly what i’m gonna’ do
i’ve gone and put on my walkin’ shoes
i’ll walk outta’ here without singin’ the blues
i’ll find the right girl that’s what i’ll do

Flashback Friday Poetry: Escape to Reality

welcome people to my dream
perhaps now all of you will see
all the craziness inside of me
is caused by my own deformity
and i can’t escape the reverie
Damned in this Hell i might just be
i’m asking someone to set me free
freedom from my own insanity
’cause i am my own worst enemy
and i won’t live through this travesty
if my mind just keeps on pushing
this goddamned soul with the false belief
that he might actually be something
if he tries hard enough to make the scene
he’s lost all will unfortunately
so he’ll rot in Hell for eternity
but i don’t believe that’s my destiny
so i will make the stand if you please
my life won’t go to the pits of Hades
i’ll go and conquer the seven seas
so if you’ll excuse me i must leave
it’s time to live the reality
