Be You

Emotional depression …

emotional depression


I may not be a genius, but I know how to use my brain

I don’t like getting wet, but I love to dance in the rain

I am not a fast traveler, but I enjoy the race cars

I don’t believe space exist, but I like to look at the stars

I don’t believe in destroying animals, but I do enjoy a meal of meat

I have a couple cavities, yet still indulge in sweets

I know smoking kills, yet I smoke a pack per day

They say the ozone is depleting, yet I use these sprays

I hate crowded places, yet I take the New York subways

I stay in this relationship, even though my spouse is cheating

She keeps saying she didn’t do it, and I keep believing

My boss keeps telling me next year I will get a raise

I have now been asking for over a decade

I don’t believe Johnathon is mine, but I still love him

I think the real father is the fitness guru his mother met at the Gym


I suffer from emotional depression, nothing a little weed won’t cure

But I refuse to smoke, I poison my body with toxins from the corner store

I have been writing for a couple years now, but my blog makes no cash

But each and every day I put out a new article, hoping one would be a smash

People say I am boring, maybe it’s because I hate going out

I would prefer a blog or a book with a strong drink relaxing on my couch

I have a friend I rarely see because of the shift she works

When I am home she is out and vice versa

Some people think my behavior is just a little strange

But strange is not conforming to the norm, a different link in the chains

I simply am who I am, no one can be me for me

Nor for one day I would want to be any one else but me

Do what you do, no one can do you

    So true Clive, we are what we are, regardless, and being true to the self is what we all must do. Nothing in life is easy, but I guess that’s the point, we’re here to learn and find a positive path to ensue. Cheers!

    Life is never easy and always a mystery – I enjoyed this Clive.

    And isn’t that the truth. There’s no one like you in this world, like snowflakes close but not the same. This was a tough one to get through. So personal and in depth. I am sorry that you live in doubt each day. But I like the positive vibe spun too. Keep doing you and sooner or later the positives will start to shine brighter and brighter. Nice work Clive.
