Beside Me

Besides me I’m a diamond.

I saw stars and stripes once,

And the past was right beside me.

The answer to any question is always,

right beside me.

Besides me, everybody is me.

When others are right beside me,

I am more than me.

To perfect me, I must embrace everything

besides me.

I wish everyone was right beside me.

If I don’t respect me no one is beside me.

If you are beside me,

Everything is right beside me.


What’s coming is coming, what will thou face, a circle of tears or an unknown cure?

Purity challenged with one’s own nature, mature in one aspect, stuck in the old neighborhood

longing to elect someone new.

Tried and true, falsehood is always there, some care, some despise, devastated with what’s to


Slowly attempting to venture back into society, the proprietors of a possible incoming income

will attain the power.

A sour flavor may return, but deep inside a little fire charges the engine.

Battling vapors, strumming through smoke screens, a one man team carries battle wounds in

need of mending.

Pretending everything is going to be ok, having something to say means hearing the opposite.

Every which way but loose, a truce be obtained; come.
