Too Good

All my life I’ve learned 

That there is no good karma 

Good deeds reaped 

Unsatisfactory results

People ran away

Because I was too nice 

There’s no way someone 

Could be so good a person 

It’s impossible…

But what does that 

Make me…

Tokyo 

I just need to accept that I’m a monster 

Causing terror 

Stomping around 

Destroying everything that I touch 

That’s what the people below me see

I’m just trying to understand me

So I’m curious about things 

I’m trying to figure it all out 

It’s not my fault that when I sneeze 

Fire comes out my snout

I’m sorry for the calamity 

I’ll head back into the sea 

Doubts 

Self doubt is usually our biggest flaw

We see ourselves differently 

From the person we are

Selling ourselves short 

When in truth we’re much more

Than we ever have

Given ourselves credit for 

Moments in life rock us

Because we’re able to see

That there’s more to us

Than we once believed 

Complications 

​I know the smile on her face is a mask
Put up to keep the world from asking
Questions like what’s wrong
She’s growing on me
Though I haven’t known her too long
I know she gets stressed sometimes
Trying to figure it all out
We’re all in her shoes sometimes 
Never really knowing what life’s about 
When she starts to think
The snowball starts to roll
Before she knows it 
It’s spiraling out of control 
She tries to avoid complications 
That would only add on more stress
She’s looking out for herself 
Doing what she think is best 
Then along comes this guy
Who sets off all alarms
But works his way in anyway 
What are his intentions 
They all have them
No matter what they say 
Things start to feel
Comfortable 
Filling us both with dismay 
She doesn’t want to deal with problems
I don’t want the problems 
To end up driving her away
I just want to take her far from it all 
If only it’s for a moment 
Forget about all the stress
Lose ourselves in good times
Not remember where the day went 
It’s complicated
Nothing is ever simple is it? 
My plans to help her feel better 
Are just another complication
Coming for a visit

Yo-yo Emotions 

Up and down they bounce

Pushed down by bad days 

Left to rise in good ones 

Makes me think of being young

No matter what my face says

I was happy once

I can’t take all the back and forth

I just want to live free

This constant change is too much strain 

Through it all I remain positive 

Even though today’s a low day

One day I’ll be happy again 

At least I know I’m not broken…
