A Dead Man's Lament

I fought too many obstacles
so I could "live the life"
Only to later realise
That these obstacles
are the salt
that completes the taste of life

Grounded

All the money in the world
or cars
or houses
or clothes or shoes
All the high table dinners
all people I know
all "important" hands I shake
all great achievements I make
Will never change me
I will always be
Me
For I am grounded

To tell...or Not

I want to pour out my heart
but keep holding back
For I keep thinking about
the pain and the hurt

I want to tell you my story
the bare, naked truth
To undress myself
and be understood by you

I want to, I want
but still cannot tell
If in time to come
I'll wish I didn't tell

Loving me, Loving you

Loving you is first loving me
For without love inside
None can spread, outward

Loving me is loving you
For what I become to myself
I become to you

Loving me is loving you
For when I'm true to me
I'm true to you
