A SELF-CENTERED POEM

After being glued to my computer like a geek,
I changed shifts and switched to party mode last week.
I met interesting people and what’s more, they got to meet me,
I impressed and was impressed, as it was meant to be.

Isn’t it amazing, how much there is to learn
When you make a u-turn?
Isn’t it great, how little it can take
To have and eat your cake?

So much to do, to feel, to see
So much and it’s all about me!

….

KISMET

When two people decide to walk side by side,
There are many things they both must abide,
There are many things on which they must agree
To stay together and to still feel free.

Sometimes the best they can do
Is find out what’s true,
What really feels like the best thing to do,
What really feels like the best way to be,
And then agree to disagree.

Whatever happens from this point on,
You must never ever forget:
When mummy and daddy met, they kissed.
When mummy and daddy kissed, they met.
It was kismet.

I am Sunshine

I’ve seen the blackness of the dark
That makes the night
I’ve seen the power of the spark
That brings the light

And it cannot be denied,
What has lived and what has died,
What is deep and what is wide,
It is all buried inside.

What lies hidden from the view
In the dark is meant to be
And that’s no place for sunshine
And that’s not a place for me

Someone soon is bound to see
this light that shines out of me
and when they do, they will incline
To think that I am their sunshine.

They will want to shout
From rooftops my name
Without shame
They will want the world to know
That it’s not the same
(Cause it really wouldn’t be the same.)

They would not need to decide
What to hide, when to misguide
How best their life to divide
Nothing said, but all implied.

I’ve been the blackness of the dark
That makes the night
I’ve been the power of the spark
That brings the light

And it cannot be denied,
What has lived and what has died,
What is deep and what is wide,
It is all buried inside.

What lies hidden from the view
In the dark is meant to be
And that’s no place for sunshine
And that’s not a place for me.
