poetry spew

morning. will come too soon
piles to do
things unsaid
wishing for change
but longing for familiarity
bittersweet farewells
broken bridges
...may never mend
but hoping for understanding
homebound
back to the norm
growing up, grown up
never the same
here they come
new 
change
repeat.

move on up.

MOVE ON UP
-Curtis Mayfield

Hush now child,
and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you 
by and by
Move on up 
towards your destination
You may find 
from time to time
Complications 

Bite your lip 
and take a trip
Though there may be 
wet road ahead
You cannot slip
Just move on up 
and peace you will find
Into the steeple 
of beautiful people
Where there's only one kind

So hush now child 
and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you 
by and by
Just move on up 
and keep on wishing
Remember your dreams 
are your only schemes
So keep on pushing
Take nothing less - 
not even second best
And do not obey - 
you must have your say
You can past the test

Move on up!
