Crunchy chips deliver their payload of salt and carbs
Rallying my taste buds into a feeding frenzy
It becomes an addictive craving that must be met
Soon the bag is consumed, and I look around
People at the grocery store are looking at me weirdly
So what you’re saying is should have waited till I got home?
Only the Allfather could see all with one eye
Donning his broad hat instead of a crown
It might have made him look simple
Nothing could be further from the truth
“More sun, more ants., more fire More sun, more ants, more fire!”
“And you say you don’t have anger issues?”
“Give me a break. At least I’m not trying to fry you.”
“Nope, just innocent creatures going on their merry way”
“If it makes you feel any better, these are the ones that ruined your picnic”
“For real? How do you know?”
‘You look up close. They’re still suffering from the epic heartburn”
There are times when a boy and a girl love each other.
Hey Dad, you don’t need to go there.
Every dad has to. It’s an oath we give at the hospital before taking you home.
They were lying to you, Dad. I’m all set.
And how would you know you are all set?
Look, do you want me to tell you what I know?
Kill me now!
We look into each other’s lives and wonder what lies behind those curtains
If others have things so much better than us
Not realizing that as we stare in that they can stare back
Determined to see past our drapes
Observing all the cobwebs and clutter
While wondering why we have it so much better than they do
Leaving the ground behind one step at a time
As I climb higher and higher into the sky
Don’t look down though
Don’t ever look down. That my knees will knock
Eventually, I stop and wonder how high I have gone
Realizing I was only three rungs up.
There is so much you can’t do by yourself
Others are needed to make it happen
Getting your tribe on board might not be easy
Everyone might have different opinions or a different way to do it
That’s when you need to realize we are all in this
Here is where we need to work extra hard listening and not attacking
Enabling the collective to try and fail as we look towards success
Realizing this is why in these tough times we need to stick…
The bathroom’s walls were naked
It was screaming to be covered in porcelain
Lilly hated doing the obvious thing
Eventually, the plaster would look so much better.
Resting in your bed, you look up
Overhead you have shelter
Outside is kept in its place
For that, you can be grateful
