My Imaginary Friend…

Imaginary Friend

farmer-clip-art-4

My imaginary friend was Fred the Farmer… I know it sounds crazy, but Fred would only be available on long road trips… He would wear a plaid, long-sleeved shirt and a pair of jean overalls.  He would always be right beside our vehicle or lag behind a bit whenever we would drive on the highway. He always had a way of making me laugh whether it was jumping from road sign to road sign, or when he would trip when he ran. Fred would also talk to me and ask me why my grandparents were driving slow.  He was always a great “imaginary friend” who would help pass the time by… No, we don’t talk anymore. haha…

Open Mic called Life…

You stand there to sing,

You feel your beating heart.

You want to carry out the tune;

But you don’t know where to start.

You know that you’re the only;

The one who’s not afraid to stand.

Yet, you feel all of life is still;

Save the shaking of your hands.

You give one good glance;

You look out among the crowd.

All the many faces are out so far;

 Yet, Their voices so close, so loud.

You open your mouth gently,

Until words of pureness pour.

You started the melodious tune;

The crowd speaks no more.

Your heart begins to beat faster,

You start to feel that rush.

Nothing but your voice is sounding;

Whilst the multitude is hushed.

You’re almost done with singing,

A smile makes it’s way.

While the crowd gets to cheering

Begging you to stay!

You feel as though you’re floating.

Nothing better could describe;

When you walk from the platform,

Feeling excited and alive.

Every day is an open mic

You get the chance to stand, to speak.

Although, you may be nervous;

It’s the easiest way to lead.

Going with the Flow

Maybe it’s the rush,

Or possibly the glow;

I can not help but deny,

Going with the flow.

I was made to stand,

Or possibly to show.

I can not be like everyone,

Going with the flow.

I must take a leap out;

Step where I don’t know.

I can not make my choices,

Going with the flow.

Be who you’re supposed to be,

Go where you need to go.

You will never find your purpose,

Going with the flow.

Don’t turn back to the crowd.

Carry good seeds you must sew.

Remember, greatness isn’t achieved

Going with the flow.

The Moment I Get It Together…

Glass2

The moment I get it together,

Is the moment I fall apart.

I think I’ve finally got it;

This so-called matter of the heart.

I act, as if, all is well;

Nothing phases me at all.

My brokenness one can’t tell;

For your name I do not call.

I know one day, very soon,

It’ll all catch up to me.

I’ll break down in a public room,

For the whole wide world to see.

This emotion all held in,

By a very,fragile string.

I knew you’d always win,

As my tears begin to sing.

The song of lost hope,

The look of lost love.

My dreams in a scope,

Fled away like a dove.

The hole that may be,

The wonder that’ll remain.

I can’t help but see,

The rainbows in the rain.

The moment I get it together,

Used to be the moment I fell apart.

I’ve learned to face my weather,

And have been acquainted with my heart.
