It’s fascinating how much power another can hold
I’m nodding with the faintest of smiles
Sharing pleasantries with every Dick, Tom and Harry
Feeling drained and stuck in a fold
Where no one can reach the depth of my soul
Man J was kind, clean and porch
His smile could brighten a day’s wild
Too good for me, Hell no!
Yet, I let fate subside
Even in obvious tides!
How stupid was I to believe?
That situations can always pan out in my favor
I know how! Greed that’s what!
Setting slides in a calculator debrief
Too corky or too weak?
None ever applied
Too kiddy or too meek?
Seemingly easy, was turning a blind eye
Breaking the camel’s back with the truth
Seemed harder to hear
And in a situation that drew near,
All I did was remain a prude
Apparently not good enough
