Serenity

Serenity

Finally found some peace again

A place I can untangle

And unwind

Lost for a few days

I found some sanity

In a place

I’ll have to leave again

But these days

That pass long and slow

Retracing my steps

Picking up pieces

Of my lost soul

It’s the only place

I need come

When I have to let go

Changing partners

Changing partners

Where is my perfect man?

Changing partners- hand written
Changing partners- hand written

We hunt

We chase

Making pairs

Is a never-ending craze!

We hide, we seek

We laugh, we weep

All in the name of love

Match making

Score taking

What kind of game

Is this that we play?

Engagement?

Marriage?

For me?

No way!

Filling my bed

Taking away my head

Wham! Bam!

Thank you Ma’am!

Yet another score!

Become a rated number?

No chance, not anymore!

You win some

You lose some

“Plenty more fish in the sea”

I’m done with fishing

They can try and catch me!

Monday, Tuesday

Every day it’s the same

It’s one hell of a joke

This mating game!

Ever decreasing circles

Ever decreasing circles

There was a time

When I had many

People in my life

But now there seems…

So very few

It would appear

That as my age

In numbers has increased

The circle I am surrounded by

Has dwindled and declined

I am no less whole

I am more complete

Maybe, I don’t need an army

To stand up and march

On my own two feet.

Woman

Woman

Woman

You know not your

Own strength

Or the power that

Truly resides

In your hands

You have the universe

At your finger tips

And the world

At your feet

Understand your value

Know your worth

You are the reason

That man

Can walk this earth

This new life

This new life

This new life

Built from empty promises

And broken dreams

Is going to be

The making of me

This new life

Belongs to me

There ain’t nobody else

Ever going to clip

My wings again

Or try to cage me

This new life

Came at a price

That no one else could pay

But things would have

Been very different

If I’d chosen silence

And didn’t leave

But stayed.

This new life

Is all about me

I’ve learnt

What it means to be happy

And that only I

Can set me free.

Saving myself?

Saving myself?

I am very good

At economising

But sometimes

I even do it with myself…

Give me one good reason why

Give me one good reason

Give me one good reason why

I shouldn’t have

Given up on you?

Turned my back, walked away

To start over and begin anew?

Give me one good reason why

I should still give you my time

To listen as you share

Your woes and dreams

Even though you won’t hear

One word I speak about mine?

Give me one good reason why

I should have spent my time

Living in your shadow

Being unnoticed and

Blocked by your shade

When all I wanted

Was to glow and shine?

Give me one good reason why

I should’ve stayed

When everything around

Told me to leave?

Your silence may have quietly

Wanted me to remain

But it’s in your words and actions

That I truly believe

Give me one good reason why

I should’ve believed in you

While you have so little

Faith in yourself?

You’re driven by a fury

There’s no room for anything else

Give me one good reason why

I should’ve loved you

Laid myself out, bare on a plate?

You had your turn, you picked over me

Then pushed me to one side

You had my love once

And now it’s just too late
