Day 55: For You

February 17, 2012

For You

 

I wanted to buy you flowers,

But flowers die too soon,

And what would that say

About my feelings for you.

 

I wanted to buy you silk flowers,

But they’re fake and they get forgotten,

And what would that say

About my feelings for you.

 

Then I wanted to buy you a diamond,

But diamonds are cold, hard, and from under the ground,

And what would that say

About my feelings for you,

 

That’s when I decided to give you a hug,

And tell you I love you.

They have no expiration date.

I mean the words

And I am sharing my warmth with you,

And that says more than any THING that I can buy.

Day 22: Who I Am

January 15, 2012

Who I Am

 

I am not defined by

The clothes I wear,

I can not wear emotions.

I am not defined by

The money I make,

Money can’t buy my thoughts.

I am not defined by

The buildings I own,

 

No house is big enough for my love.

You can’t place me in the box

You have made for me,

For only I have that power.

 

If I write

I am a writer,

If I play music

I am a musician,

No matter what anyone else says

I am what I say I am.
