Straight – Written June 2004 (Aged 29)

Straight

if only
i could straighten out these feelings
i envy those
for whom life
is a one destination road
i am all over the place
and nothing is simple
i just want –
a little peace and tranquility
before my inside –
burns away
like a faded star

if only –
i could straighten out these feelings
the moods
maybe i could be a better being
one she would love with conviction
not one –
who just gets convicted
i envy those
with neatly trimmed lives
who’s smile –
always look right
