Searching for you

A teenage love

.

A teenage love

When I was young

I dated you

It was for fun

I was seventeen

Working too

You was fourteen

I didn’t know what to do

Friends can be cruel

And they got to me

Their taunts echoed

And we wasn’t to be

I split us up

I broke your heart

For those other people

It made them laugh

I regretted much

Of what I had done

You didn’t deserve

What had become

Years later we met

I made my peace

I showed you my poems

Which had set me free

You was cold

That I deserved

For all I had done

You didn’t accept a word

You walked out that day

You was right

You went out that door

And out of my life

That’s what you get

Peer pressure thump

Agony gets better

Face it, I was a chump

Love life

.

Thinking happy thoughts

Happy and bright

Chilling on a cloud

Feeling light

Sucking up the sunshine

Cruising through the day

Forgetting all my troubles

Kaleidoscope my way

Turning like a spin top

Colours so wonderful

Dizzying numbness

I refuse to fall

Tiptoeing like a dancer

Clothes stripped from me

See me in my glory

This is how to be

Kartwheels effortlessly

Weightless as I am

Majestically turning

Just because I can

Riches or happiness?

.

Money is great

To get through life

Money is great

To get out of strife

.

It can’t buy you everything

Happiness has no price

It can’t buy you everything

In this labyrinth we call life

.

Choices have to be made

Riches or existence?

Choices have to be made

Decide, be resistant

.

We are judged, judging others

In every step we make

We are judged, judging others

We learn by our mistakes

.

We work to live, not live to work

Waiting to retire, enjoy our lives

We work to live, not live to work

Until health problems are at our sides

.

Riches or happiness

What do you choose?

Riches or happiness

Think carefully, do not lose.

Happy to be alive

Hey, be positive, take it in your stride

Life getting you down? Poke it in the eye

The do’s and dont’s are very clear

Chill out, relax, have a beer

Dont be down, why that face?

Go to it now your happy place

Boss a jerk? Doing your head in?

Get him back, car keys in the bin

Partner mean? Treat you rough?

Leave their ass if you’ve had enough

Are they better than you? In your eyes

Stop being negative, no need to despise

Had an argument? they get the better of you?

Be bigger then them, agree, what it takes to do

They cannot keep you down if your positive enough

Even when it hits the fan and you feel rough

You are strong, you do matter

Look at your life, it’s not in tatters

Examine the good, do a few good deeds

Say “on this day I do decree”

To march forth with a spring in your stride

Because by gosh chaps, I’m happy to be alive!

Along comes love

Do you ever remember single life?

I remembered thinking of my strife

I always thought I’d never find her

I’d want so hard and all girls scarpered

I was so lonely, so down

I was not fun to be around

I was pathetic, desperate, all the above

I was ready to do anything for love

I tried so hard, it never worked

I depressed myself, went a little berserk

I tried everything, meeting different girls

The only thing was it seemed a different world

Sometimes we can meet one and she is the one

Sometimes we meet a 100 and have lots of fun

You must never quit, wallow in pity

I’ve been there, I felt real shitty

Life goes on and surprisingly enough

When you don’t expect it along comes love.
