I Try – Written Wednesday 31st October 2012 (Aged 37)

I Try

take it seriously
and i try,
i try, i try
but inside
if i did not laugh
i would cry
make a joke
make a lock
life is too short
have you checked the clock
tell a joke
make a remark
drive home your sarcasm
find it a place to park
take it seriously
i try,
i try, i try
but inside
i am laughing
and it is manic
when are we going to notice
the world romances panic
i try to be constructive
i try, i try
but if i did not laugh
then i know i would cry
