    Tired.........Just Words

    i cant wait to put down the bucket of water i carry
    after 22 i think its starting to get heavy
    the day i put down is the day i can sleep
    until then time seems 2 crawl and creep.
    my friends make me laugh my load i forget
    sometimes tho i cry and regret
    i always remember this dream i once had long ago
    a dream about paradise a place i grew 2 love so
    a dream and place they told me i could never have
    denying and shunning my soul i let starve
    i get no salvation and myself i think doomed
    my water tho blest my hands for hell are groomed
    Change comes to visit and becomes frustrated by me
    trying with all his might but cant alter wat i see
    got distracted left my bucket outside the rain came
    my bucket overflows my anger i try 2 tame
    reaching for the handle its slippery and wet
    lifting my burden my journey is set
    i look upstairs whispering i pray
    i guess HE heard me cuz i got at least another day

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
