The Most Of It

Live your life
Don’t regret it
The love The strife
Don’t forget it
The in-between
that’s mostly seen
keep true to you

Grumpy Old Fool

Though you’ll show more
belligerence 
I’ll hope for your
deliverance
from the darkness
of the life’s mess
that grounds you down

Not a Picnic

Holding tight to
her teddy bear
on a flight through
here to somewhere
as nightmares play
both night and day
to form her norm
