You Can't Make Me Do Something I Love

Updated on February 1, 2012

The Love Extract

Who is right who is wrong ?

The long list of suggestions and ideas that slowly melt

LIke a jawbreaker slowly being sucked away

I hope we all live long enough to see the day

That all people learn to play

Not with guns and special forces

Instead playing doctor with lots of nurses

My mind got side tracked

It happens now and again

I take full responsibility for all my words and actions

I reel you in like a big fish on the end of my line

Slowly, ever so slowly

I see the rod bend in a shape I have never seen before

I am silently begging please don't break this is my moment of glory

I will always treasure

Then snap and the greatest all time fish got away

So my story goes and there are no tears

Since I came here for different reasons altogether

To bring one hand to meet the other

The same hands that shake are the ones that would normally fight till all cut up and bruised

With a broken nuckle or two

Life is not what we have figured out

It is what we still can't figure out

The answers are not the answer

Let me try to explain this one

You might want to have a stiff drink first

That will numb your senses and give me time to make a point

I am fighting for equal rights

The right to have an idea that no one has given any thought

To propose a toast to the world as we want it to be

Then trick you into promising to try to make all your dreams come true

If that is wrong then I am guilty of all charges

I want you to follow your dreams

Yes dreams ,the ones that you can't see and don't even know exsist


Because you never gave yourself the chance to ask the most important questions

What makes my life complete ?

What fascinates me to know end ?

What keeps me typing long hours when I could of gone to bed ?

I have found my answer

I am either driven by a desire that takes me completely over


I have gone insane and I don't know when to quit

I have seen alot of things in my life

Some I remember and some are just resting

They keep building until the nest is finished

It could take years or a lifetime and it will never be complete

I feel the energy inside of me is like the wind in a wind tunnel

That is present and ready to be heard

I wonder sometimes how many readers I lose along the way

Then I also wonder if I could catch you if you were a stray dog or cat

Not to own and tell you what to do

But to let you live and enjoy the life that God has given me

That I so willingly try to pass onto you
