beyond their years

Standard

my mind baffles me

when

I think of my dad 

and curse the gods 

for taking him away so soon

and

my usual merciful self 

refuses to be forgiving

for

those very gods have allowed 

many to live

beyond their years

 

egocentric

Standard

 

throughout the day

I need

the company of others

but

when night falls

I retire to my room

alone

with my thoughts

and my laptop

to create

a make-believe world

with my words

only for me

and

when the day dawns

I return to my people

for helping me

to make it through the day…

… till the night falls

 

live dream achieve

Standard

go, leave

make a life for yourself

live dream achieve

say those words to the world

thanking us

your parents …

…visit the home

when we are old or gone

tell all

we meant the world to you

but

no one will know

how each minute of our lives

we missed

you being with us
