Walk Away

People may at times

rain on your parade

they may throw shade,

rant, rage, and rave

coming off as if half-crazed

but you can tune them out

& walk away

that’s perfectly okay

Untitled New Poem

He walked into a roadside store to buy an ice cold drink

Then walked back out to his car, drove to a park

Where he loved to just sit & think

He thought about the birds high flying

& about a good friend that he learned was dying

How sometimes life is hard but we keep trying

& how he’s sick to death of media & politicians lying

Riverside, California

Bobby moved out to California,

the city of Riverside,

for a green eyed girl with raven hair,

he thought he’d make her his bride,

it didn’t quite work out like he planned,

turned out she had another man

all the time, she had lied

and Bobby was just the “side”

He said, “you played the Jezebel,

don’t expect me to wish you well”

Full Throttle

When he was young with restless energy

It was a special time indeed

He was living w/zeal and loving,

enjoying what it meant to be free

Anyone who knew him

knew he was living full throttle

He wishes he could have trapped

those times in a bottle

If he could go back to those glory days

There’s only one thing he might change

He’d have never let go of his old flame

when he was seventeen she moved away

wonders where she is today
