Some Poetry by TJ....

The Next Time Around

 

The next time around

I don’t want the same problems

I want to try and do my best, this time around

 

The next time around

I want to breeze through life

I want to laugh a little more

I want to cry a little less

I want to achieve all my dreams,

   and not watch people die with regrets

 

The next time around

I want to be true to myself,

   from the beginning to the end

I want to enjoy every moment,

   and never feel depressed within

 

The next time around

I don’t want to feel any hatred,

  from, or for, a fellow human being

I want to love and embrace life, for all it has to offer

I WANT ALL OUR CHILDREN TO BE SCHOLARS

 

 

The next time around

I don’t want to see any unhappy people

I don’t want to see human beings with nothing to eat

I don’t want to see the drugs in our streets,

        destroying our nation,

            or our children disappearing off the streets

 

The next time around

I want to have natural joy and appreciation,

          for the gift of life,

                 along with courage and consideration

 

The next time around

I don’t want to know fear

I want fear to be a thing of the past

I want it to be in the history books,

   along with the good and the bad

 

The next time around

I want people to not work so hard,

     just to survive

 

I want there to be more humanism,

    instead of egotism

I want to never feel afraid or betrayed

 

The next time around

I don’t want to worry,

about the should’ a, would’ a, could’ a

 

Until,

THE NEXT TIME AROUND

Celebrate

 

Celebrate it all!

Celebrate the bad times!

CELEBRATE THEM ALL!

 

Keep all those memories,

because they’re all golden.

 

Celebrate with every breath

That breath helped take you,

 another step

 

Maybe you slipped and fell yesterday

BUT IT’S OKAY

Celebrated, that you lived and survived,

 to start a new day.

Celebrate that you can jump

MAYBE YOU JUMPED OVER SOME STUFF

Celebrate in all kinds of ways

 

Be noisy

Be loud

Be quite as a mouse

Be everything that you’ve wanted to be,

but celebrate in every way

DON’T FORGET TO CELEBRATE EVERY DAY

 

Celebrate in a victorious way

Don’t destroy what you have,

or lose it on the way

Share your wisdom, and shine in all your glory

 

CELEBRATE

Don’t wait!

Celebrate while you can

Tomorrow is not promised

Don’t miss out celebrating,

WHERE YOUR FEET LAND
