The Walk



From this view what do you see
besides the obvious beauty
The sun shines down to show the scene
and everything appears so clean

But as I walk I contemplate
all that’s happened up to this date
The road ahead leads to some peace
a way for me to just release

The water is a calming friend
that’s with me to the very end
The sprays its way of sharing tears
The waves, reflection of my fears

Up ahead comes another view
a way to see I made it through
I climb up and take it all in
and see that I must fight to win

It’s a long well worn road to take
a lot left behind in its quake
In the end there’s a saving grace
for none of it would I erase

Crazy Express

Photobucket

I never claimed that I was sane,
there’s an asylum in this membrane.
If you want to join in please don’t refrain
just hop on aboard the crazy train.

We’re throwing a white party, be prepared.
There are buckles and straps but don’t be scared.
It’s often a comfort to be ensnared
so come on aboard, you’re double dog dared.

The weirder you are the better you’ll fit
but corruption’s our fav we must admit.
There is no expectation to commit
but your personality just may split.

There will be party hats and games galore,
the psyche’s a labyrinth you’ll want to explore.
Here is where crazy is allowed to soar,
let it loose to boogie on the dance floor.

The joint will be jumping so windows are locked
by that little fact I’m sure you’re not shocked.
The food and drinks will forever be stocked
and this is one place you’ll never be mocked.

The ride may be bumpy that you can trust.
There are ups and downs and maybe disgust,
and when there is someone that must combust
the rest will gather to settle the dust.

So come on aboard the crazy express
and leave behind all of life’s daily stress.
Think of it as your inner child’s recess
I’m there most of the time, I must confess.
