Where We Came From

Let’s reminisce

About the days

When we were old enough

To know better

But young enough

Not to care.

When we spent

Our hard earned money

On temporary satisfaction

Gone as soon

As they’d been obtained.

Liquid courage

To get us through

The days to come-

And the only things

We have to show

For our mistakes

Are the friendships

That made us stronger

And the lessons

We’ll never forget.

 

Getting Help

I want to tell you

How I’m feeling

But don’t want dependence

To weigh you down.

 

I want you to see

That I’m hurting.

It should be obvious

Without words.

 

I want to know

Why nobody is around

When I’m hurting the most

But I don’t want an audience

For my tears.

 

I want to be heard

But can’t help

Soldiering on in silence.

Let’s See The World

A journey, just for you and me?

I never thought I would get to see

The world, with you holding my hand

Guiding me for my first time on new land

And I’ve never felt so great.

 

I’ve seen places I never thought I would

While trying things I never thought I could

All the while with you by my side

Joining me for my wildest ride

And I’ve never felt so free.

 

I didn’t know what I would feel

Being this far from home, but I feel so real

This new world, so liberating and free

Has allowed you to see the real me

And I’ve never felt more at ease.
