I FEEL BLUE

I FEEL BLUE

Inside, I feel blue.
Do you feel it too?
Only sadness all around.
No happiness to be found.

Why do I always feel this same way?
Am I destined to forever pay
For others’ misfortunes and deeds
That no one listens to or heeds.

I want to see other colors and shades.
And not just blue that eventually fades.
I want orange and green
And everything in-between.

My heart is feeling lighter.
The world is turning brighter.
Maybe the world revolving on its axis
Will make life easier than death and taxes.

A LONG HARD ROAD TO FOLLOW

A LONG HARD ROAD TO FOLLOW

 
 

The road at times feels long and tiring.
No end in sight.
Only hardships along the way.
When will life turn around?
When will it get better?
What lies at the end of this bumpy road?
Are there rainbows and trumpets?
Or a long drop into the dark water?
I’m hoping for the rainbows and trumpets.
I don’t want to have to swim against
the dark currents any longer.
