Anger and Anguish

You leave these memories you don't need,
To fade away.
Who wants to remember...
People so driven with their no hiding hate.
Who wants to remember...
When truth became for us outdated.
And deceit became the bait,
That was related and we ate it.

Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.

Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.

You leave these memories you don't need,
To fade away.
Who wants to remember...
People so driven with their no hiding hate.
Who wants to remember...
When truth became for us outdated.
And deceit became the bait,
That was related and we ate it.

Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.
Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.
Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.
Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.

Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
People in anguish and bitter.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.
Who wants to remember...
This.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.
Who wants to remember...
Anger and anguish.
Who wants to remember...
This.

Assimilation

Assimilation,
Can devastate to make hate.
Assimilation,
Has no one listening in debate...
And...
Assimilation,
Only works from 9 to 5...
When some choose to stay indifferent,
With a choosing to do to vacate,
An appreciation some fake...
For their differences.

Assimilation,
To whom does it benefit.
Assimilation,
Has yet to end conflicts.
And assimilation,
Some say they can but can't admit...
Assimilation has not prevented,
Divisions or the building...
Of kept defenses.
Assimilation is not but should be...
Inter-dependent.

Assimilation should be,
Interdependent.
Assismilation should be...
Inter-dependent.
Assimilation should be,
Interdependent.
Assismilation should be...
Inter-dependent.

Being Annoyed

Being optimistic sometimes isn't realistic,
When...
You know what it's like,
Having every button you have pushed.
And you know what it's like,
Being tested to the very limit.

You know what it's like,
Trying to keep your senses and your wits.
And...
You know what it's like,
Trying to keep yourself from getting bitter.
You know what that's like,
Being annoyed.
Yes,
You know what it's like...
Being annoyed

Increased Crescendo

The 'ifs' have passed...
As some from the 'old school'
Hold memory contests in bravado!

Remaining stifled, unproductive
And bonding into stupors of delusion...
They are in harmony and greet themselves,
As pioneers of some lost mission they survived.
Neighborhood jive, small talk and booze
Can do that!

I chose to take a nose dive...
And plunged myself right into the unknown.
With my faith in tow!
I discovered how to do that...
After riding along with my grandmother,
Who had recently gotten her driver's license
AND a new car!
I was stunned by both revelations.

Buckled in and scared for my life!
She sang hymns and loved to speed!

My grandmother taught me many lessons,
In a unique and adventurous ways!
She taught me how to deal with challenges...
And the myths of 'ifs'!

Once I was determined...
Not to bury myself
With each heartbreak.
Each emotional slam dunk.
Each stumble into and away from
A failed attempt I made...
Receiving rejection and disapproving looks!
My grandmama taught me,
With prayer there is fast action!

'As long as you keep your foot to the pedal,
You can do whatever you want!
With faith and prayer...
You will learn how to pass obstacles!
Honk your horn...
If anybody dares to get in you way.
And keep it clean and legal!
Just don't get hit by oncoming traffic! '

Of course I knew what grandma meant!
And I was glad she never had one accident,
OR a ticket!

And the 'ifs' have long passed.
That has been validated for me!
On several of grandma's trips!
And as I look out the window on some days...
Reviewing my journeys on grandma's drives,
I can still see the blurring country side
Whiz by
As grandma drove...
And I was frozen to the car door,
Listening to her sing in increased crescendo!
Knowing I was safe,
Whatever the decision I chose.
Whenever I chose to do it!
