The Good Thing's
It's not a pretty sight!
You want to deny death and to
Confirm that you at least, Are still alive.
You slowly notice that you are
Starting to lose the ability to feel Emotions..
Desperately you look for ways to prove
That it's not real and to save yourself
from drowning in hopelessness!
I found part of growing up (at any age)
Is learning to accept the sad things in life..
"Look for the good things"
Sadness can be a vortex.
It will suck you up in a heartbeat
that can last and last.
It seems daily exposure to so much suffering
Makes you face your own morality
Look for the good things
There was always a flame
That burned in my heart
For my Dad!
Yet as the years gone by
The flame turned to a spark
The spark turn into a firecracker!
Like the 4th of July
I know the good things
I looked for them and found them
In my Son's eyes
I have my Dad and OLE Glory by my side
I have grown (no longer drowning in sadness)
I have never felt so proud
I owe it to my Dad
The Longhaired, Bearded, Brawny Biker.
As he R.I.P.
I walk his walk, and talk, his talk
All the good things he has taught
My Mom helped me too!
Those chronic adrenaline rushes of sadness.
She mad! e so rea l
I owe my ability that I am alive.
Feeling that firecracker
That burns inside.
