I Texted God My Problems

I texted God my problems

For I was sad and lonely

Pat came His reply

‘Can’t talk, Whatsapp only’

Father’s Day Out

Wife’s gone out with friends

I’m home with our two sons

I’m supposed to manage

While she has all the funs

It’s days like these when I feel

I should have been alone

Never should have married

Or kids should all be grown

One of them is hungry

The other’s crying loud

It’s like I’m locked inside

A room of angry crowd

Well I’m feeling helpless

There’s nothing I can do

This is mental torture

I want to cry out too

Well I give them board games

And some packaged food

It always works out with her

With me it isn’t good

And the cries get louder

Hunger takes its toll

Trying to run a house

Where I have no control

Well my wife just text me

‘How the angels are?’

Should I text back the truth

About my brand new scar?

Then she texts me again

Stamps and seals my fate

‘Hey, my battery’s low now

It might get quite late’

A Treasure Map

Once I found a treasure map

With an ‘X’ marked upon it

It got me quite excited

That I must admit

I followed the map’s trail

With a spade in my hand

It led me to a garden

Desolate and abandoned

In the barren garden stood

A giant of a tree

That was the treasure spot

My heart was filled with glee

So I began digging

Digging for hours on end

Digging all day and all night

With a spade in my hand

Many such days did pass

No sign of a chest

Though I dug up everywhere

Though I tried my best

An old man came up to me

Said, “Son, I see you sweat

But what is it you want?

What do you wish to get?”

Though I wasn’t very keen

I narrated my tale

About the dusty treasure map

About the ‘X’ and trail

He said, “You’ve got it wrong

The treasure is the tree

No need to be digging

This map was made by me”

I looked at him with rage

Knocked him with my spade

Buried him on the spot

Under the giant tree’s shade

I Think I Might Be In Love

I think I might be in love

With these sleepless nights

Loss of appetite

Head’s full of stress

Room’s a complete mess

I’m trying new things

Laughing at bad jokes

Full of insecurity

Filled with anxiety

Zero concentration

Zero focus

I am definitely in love

But then again

Who am I in love with?

Depression?

You Always Stick With Me

I was thinking this all night

Up till the morn’ light

Am I lucky to call us ‘We’?

I begin to reflect

I know I’m not perfect

But you always stick with me

Not knowing what flaw is

I battled lost causes

To drown in a massive sea

You bring me to the shore

Show me the world and more

You always stick with me

You’re always by my side

You make me smile so wide

You’re the best that there can be

So often I am wrong

I don’t always stay strong

Yet you always stick with me

I know I’m not like them

You love all that I am

The goodness that you see

That’s why I love you

All the things you do

And you always stick with me

I’m Never Gonna Leave You For Another Day

Yesterday wasn’t exactly the kindest to me

I suffered, I begged, I screamed in misery

I felt so alone despite being so free

Distance doesn’t help no matter what they say

Oh I’m never gonna leave you for another day

I realised too late that I need to have you

To make me see the heavens in the sky so blue

I’d even call the angels down if I may need to

I will burn all the roads that lead you away

Oh I’m never gonna leave you for another day

I’m climbing your wall, I’m swimming the seas

I can crawl all the way till I’ve scarred my knees

I’ll get to you no matter where you may be

I’m gonna get to you no matter what they throw my way

Oh I’m never gonna leave you for another day
