Been up trying to settle my mind to sleep
And my upset tummy
And my sneezy nose
And scratchy throat
Nah, I’m not really sick
Mild symptoms of
A heart trying not to break
And a mind trying not to split
why did you have to chose what you did?
and I am too far away to approach
and too incompetent to know
exactly how to help
I know a little
your pain is a lot
to handle all on your own
but what am I suppose to do for you???
you cannot tell me and you won’t
i’ll cough for you
and sneeze for you
and lose sleep for you
and cry for you
And write stupid stuff (for you)
(that you’ll never read?)
Yeah, woe is me and woe is you 2
Not my choices but your choices
temporary and fleeting (all of it)
Your righteousness will not be forgotten
that is the consolation I find (and hope for me/You)
And from wise words:
Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day will bring.
2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth;
Others, and not your own lips.
3 A stone is heavy and sand is weighty,
But the irritation caused by a fool is heavier than both.
4 There is the cruelty of rage and the flood of anger,
But who can withstand jealousy?
5 Open reproof is better than concealed love.
6 The wounds inflicted by a friend are faithful, But an enemy’s kisses are plentiful.
7 One whose appetite is satisfied turns down honey from the comb,
But to the hungry, even what is bitter tastes sweet.
8 Like a bird that strays from its nest
Is a man who strays from his home.
9 Oil and incense make the heart rejoice;
So does sweet friendship springing from sincere counsel.
10 Do not forsake your friend or your father’s friend,
And do not enter your own brother’s house on the day of your disaster;
Better is a neighbor nearby than a brother far away. (Proverbs 27:1-10)
(No title, no label, no judgment call by me)
