Inward Outlook

Pain, pleasure, and pain,

 

 got me in life going insane,

 

 the treasure that I seek is simple sanity mayne,

 

 but until then I keep my eyes open on the change,

 

 people say stay simple but that’s simple saying,

 

 Life’s hard; understanding the serious and the playing,

 

Been trying to understand the black & white but life keeps graying,

 

It is this that keeps me on my knees praying,

 

This colorful blending of the good and bad,

 

Keeps me twisted up but I wear this smile even when I’m sad,

 

I let the anger in me fade who needs this mad,

 

I take this checkered past and turn into plaid,

 

Now why you wanna be mad all the time,

 

Grab the sun because its time to turn this tide,

 

Life’s to long of a journey to not enjoy the ride,

 

Check yourself mayne and destroy this pride,

 

Cause when learn to accept what they say is unacceptable,

 

You get a whole new plug in life, a new receptacle,

 

 You get a whole new reflection that’s reflect able,

 

Because now your outward look is suddenly respectable,

 

So take your new horizon and establish your own sunset,

 

Watch the fall of your pain and the loss of your regrets,

 

Loss of your worries and all these frets,

 

Suddenly this pain you had you will forget,

 

All in all it sounds so quick to do,

 

But nothing is quick when it comes to finding what’s true,

 

It all starts when you look and see what’s trapped inside you,

 

Though your seas maybe rougher then most they can be subdued.
