Playing the Part

The act has become the reality. I was being what I thought I had to be. Disregarding what came naturally. For the good or the bad. Ignoring the instincts that I had. To curse you out or to hold your hand, To follow my heart or join the band, Holding back the tears when I’m…

The Meantime

They say you never know what you’re going to get, I’m willing to bet, that much can be figured. We are the product of that which has lived. Survival of the fittest. Same beginning and same end. What appears to be the difference… Is the meantime. The space in which we haven’t gotten there yet….
