Real

A man in old cowboy boots with well worn soles

taps out rhythms touching hearts & souls

Playing a guitar in his hands w/strings of steel

Letting everybody know everything he feels

The joys of his life, and his pain yet to heal

They all relate b/c he keeps it real

“I’d Do It All Over Again”

A kid packed his bags heavy,

threw them in his Chevy truck

Headed down to Texas,

where people had said he should try his luck

He spent his first months in Fort Worth,

staying w/a good friend of his,

Working days as a dishwasher

& spending his nights

playing gigs,

Being a musician it was a tough row to hoe

but even so, he was glad he made a go of it,

Years later when he’d succeeded,

He said “I’ve got to admit,

If I had to go back, I’d do it all over again”

Singing A Different Tune

This is the story of a man,

whose body has betrayed him

He’s been living on a welfare check

& there’s people who shame him

but they don’t really understand

never walked a mile in his shoes

If they had even for a moment,

If they had a clue what he goes through

Just to be able to do

the most basic things

They’d have a little empathy,

they would be

singing a different tune

A Love Story

For a while, their hearts seemed so out of sync,

Their relationship is headed for the end of the line”

you might think,

They were like two drums beating

to two different songs,

so much going wrong

but finally they talked it out, held on for dear life

Strengthening their bond as husband & wife

By:J.N.R Dutton

A story of a marriage on the rocks, @ 1st, but where communication & Love won out.
