In Your Circle

Standard

Yeah
Talk to YOUR ‘friends’
Make them feel good
Confirm what THEY say
Tune into THEIR wavelength
Love what THEY love

Listen to their DRIVEL
Simper as they nod
Laugh with THEM
Voice THEIR opinion
Love what THEY love

Do as THEY say
Smile when needed
Smirk in your turn
Lie when you’re told
Love what THEY love

If the wind could speak

Standard

If the wind could speak,
what would it say?
Perhaps,
when I whispered to you
as a gentle breeze
to alert your mind
to an oncoming occurrence.
You were too absorbed
in your abstract thoughts
to acquiesce me.

If the wind could speak,
what would it say?
Perhaps,
When I spoke to you
as a blustering gust
to warn you to take care.
You were too distracted
with other events
to spare a thought for me.

If the wind could speak,
What would it say?
Perhaps,
When I roared at you
As a galloping gale
beseeching you to listen.
You were too preoccupied
with disproportionate choices
to give acknowledgement to me.

If the wind could speak,
What would it say
Perhaps,
When I screamed at you
as a sustaining hurricane
begging you to hear.
You were too resolute
with your presumptions
to accept the consequences
were pertinent to me.
