Real Talk

Why don’t we talk real


to one another

why don’t we say

what we feel

And when can we

get to the place

where the other

is receiving the words

the way

they were meant.

How do we

get there

By talking


asking questions


waiting for answers

Who’s really listening

I just

want to talk

like that

all of the time


What If

Going higher

What if

If you win

If you go farther

farther than you expected

Could you imagine life

I just wanna see how far I can go

You can’t worry

about anyone else

I mean

you gotta want it

Want it so bad

so bad that you want them to come along

but if they can’t


then you have to let them go

no matter who they are

you have to know

what’s important

try the same rules across the board

Sometimes I wonder

Wonder if

some of us even know that

or if they don’t care

Don’t care to do

something different

because you can

rather than not  doing it

because you don’t know any better

I just wonder

I was looking for someone

someone to show me

but I couldn’t

I couldn’t find anyone

So I decided

Decided to

just do it myself

I realized

that everyone

was gone

So I had to be that for me

I say

all of the time

talk yourself through it

so when

all you have

is you

You have to take care

of you

What if
