You’re Spouting Off At The Seams

You’re spouting off at the seams
The system melting from the status quo
Another former acolyte on the verge of revolt
The machine of government quotas; all systems go
But is this what we want from our society
I believe their intentional interference is a sin
Let us be, let us live a life peaceful & free
A life where a simple man might still be able to win

You Know The Type

You know the type

Running off to sail the oceans

Claiming to be a dread pirate

Wishing for some sort of motion

A stagnant life killing the soul

Truth is, he only ever wanted to be with you

This is the life chosen, so time to live

Easy to forget the water’s real hue

Preparing For The World

event-907245.jpg

Preparing for the world
Packing all the essential gear
Not to be outdone by hate
We laugh & toast in the face of fear
This life is our only Earthly chance
I choose to live with joy & elation
The smiles & righteous conduct will outlast
Our bodies in the hearts of our relations

Do Not Be Afraid Of Your Strength

backlight-909120.jpg

Do not be afraid of your strength
Learn to love yourself & all forms
There’s peace within the text
Embrace ideas as they swarm
Take a walk into the fields
Go further, down where the fairies reside
Take time to learn the dwarves’ names
When you return you’ll be bonafide
Write what your soul has digested
Tell us the stories living up within
Once you become young
That’s the exact moment life will begin

I Was Mortally Wounded In Love

fantasy-1576865.jpg

I was mortally wounded in love
So here I sit, writing verse after verse
My soul wilting, returning to nature
Damn, feelings no more than a curse
But you’ve got to keep on living
Knowing there’s an end to the bitter night
We’ll find the light of morning sunshine
In the meantime, we’ll have all we write

Drinking Out Of The Good Crystal

whisky-644372.jpg

Drinking out of the good crystal
Pouring another glass of Scotch
I’m not going to waste this life
I’m not going to stand by & watch
I want to get my hands dirty
Experience should be more than a page
I’m not going to live by proxy
I’m going die a virile man in my old age

She Was A Shallow Girl

the-act-of-1331664.jpg

She was a shallow girl
Lingering in the brackish waters
Often commenting on my person
Advice & suggestions on how to be hotter
I tried to live within my control
But I was never good enough in her eyes
Qualifications & standards missed the mark
She let me go without even an honest try

We Can Choose To Be Who We Wish

We can choose to be who we wish
Or we can try to be something we’re not
But the Earth keeps spinning around
Illusion or otherwise, this one’s gonna be hot
But I want to be something a little more real
To live authentically in spite of society’s pressure
I will not be goaded into buying demeaning products
I’ll remain true & gentlemanly as I stay a dapper dresser
