Lush Life

I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come-what-may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life
From jazz and cocktails
The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distingue traces
That used to be there
You could see where theyd been washed away
By too many through the day
Twelve oclock tales
Then you came along with your siren song
To tempt me to madness
I thought for awhile that your poignant smile
Was tinged with the sadness
Of a great love for me
Ah yes, I was wrong
Again, I was wrong
Life is lonely again
And only last year
Everything seemed so sure
Now life is awful again
A trough full of hearts could only be a bore
A week in paris could ease the bite of it
All I care is to smile in spite of it
Ill forget you, I will
While yet you are still
Burning inside my brain
Romance is mush
Stifling those who strive
So Ill live a lush life in some small dive
And there Ill be, while I rot with the rest
Of those whose lives are lonely too

Those come what may places
Where one relaxes on the axis
Of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life
From jazz and cocktails
All the men I knew had sad and
Sullen gray faces
With distingue traces
That used to be there

Theyd been washed away
By too many through the day
Twelve oclock tales
Then you came along with your
Siren song
To tempt me to madness
I knew all the while
That your poignant smile
Was tinged with the sadness of a
Great love for me
Oh, yes I was wrong
Again I was wrong
Now life is lonely again
And only last year everything
Seemed so sure
Now life is awful again
A troughful of hearts would only
Be a bore
A week in paris will ease the bite
Of it
But all I really care
Is to smile in spite of it
Ill forget you
I will and yet you are still
Burning inside my brain
Romance is mush, stifling those
Who strive
Ill live a lush life in some
Small dive
And there Ill be
While I rot with the rest
Of those whose lives are
Lonely too

Lush Life

(billy strayhorn)
I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come what may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life...
From jazz and cocktails.
The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distant gay traces
That used to be there you could see where theyd been washed away
By too many through the day...
Twelve oclock tales.
Then you came along with your siren of song
To tempt me to madness!
I thought for a while that your poignant smile was tinged with the sadness
Of a great love for me.
Ah yes! I was wrong...
Again,
I was wrong.
Life is lonely again,
And only last year everything seemed so sure.
Now life is awful again,
A troughful of hearts could only be a bore.
A week in paris will ease the bite of it,
All I care is to smile in spite of it.
Ill forget you, I will
While yet you are still burning inside my brain.
Romance is mush,
Stifling those who strive.
Ill live a lush life in some small dive...
And there Ill be, while I rot
With the rest of those whose lives are lonely, too..

Lush Life

[Written in 1949 by Billy Strayhorn, the noted Duke Ellington collaborator]
I used to visit all the very gay places
Those come what may places
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
To get the feel of life...
From jazz and cocktails.
The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces
With distant gay traces
That used to be there you could see where they'd been washed away
By too many through the day...
Twelve o'clock tales.
Then you came along with your siren of song
To tempt me to madness!
I thought for a while that your poignant smile was tinged with the sadness
Of a great love for me.
Ah yes! I was wrong...
Again,
I was wrong.
Life is lonely again,
And only last year everything seemed so sure.
Now life is awful again,
A troughful of hearts could only be a bore.
A week in paris will ease the bite of it,
All I care is to smile in spite of it.
I'll forget you, I will
While yet you are still burning inside my brain.
Romance is mush,
Stifling those who strive.
I'll live a lush life in some small dive...
And there I'll be, while I rot
With the rest of those whose lives are lonely, too..

I like to live my own life

I can smile,

though sometimes it's so hard to do.

I can laugh,

Though sometimes the tears are running down.

I can look sometimes so lightminded,

And...sometimes...so thoughtful.

I can joke, I can bear a lot of things,

But...sometimes I can't give away my offences,

And can't stand any pretences.

And...at those horrible moments

My soul pains hardly.

Fortunately, nobody can see it.

Some people say

They would like to be in my shoes.

It looks like loose

To be in one's shoes.

I think it's so foolish and disgrace,

They do not look at my face,

They do not look at my eyes,

And...they do not realize

That happiness comes with worries,

That love comes with pain.

Could I be happy without any grief?

Could I know what happiness and love is

Without any worries?

Could I laugh or smile

If I didn't know what tears are?

Could I comfort someone's soul

If I didn't feel the pain of my own?

I wouldn't like to be in anyone's shoes.

I like to live my own life.

And make my own booze.

You Only Live Half A Life

you only live half a life
pay check to pay check
work day to work day
waiting for Friday night
waiting for two day weekend
waiting for next hit TV episode
waiting to pay for rent food
waiting for welfare check if not
lucky you still have a job

Lush Life

[Chorus]
Lush life
Takes away the time
Lush life
Takes away the time
Take one step at a time
Boy I'm still in my prime
I want the lush life

A little base is what I want
Need a finer place to do my thang
I want no boys holding me back
Coz once I get there

With Wishes To Live A Wholesome Life

One addicted,
To the foolishness...
Of someone else,
As if hooked to a need...
Deserves to be abused.
If...
This is excused.

No one is born to do this,
As if a prerequisite...
To live a wholesome life.

One with wishes to live a wholesome life,
Let's it known and quick...
Disrespect accepted,
They will have none of it.
Or tolerate its appearance when shown.

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life--learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.

There Is No Way To Say All I Feel At This Moment

THERE IS NO WAY TO SAY ALL I FEEL AT THIS MOMENT

There is no way to say all I feel at this moment-

We live forever ignorant of ourselves-

Some small part of what we are
Is in our mind at any one time-

But behind and beyond and within and without,
We are so much more
Than we can ever say-

Poets of our own self- ignorance and silence
We must strive to hint at our omissions also.

Is There For This Morning/ Some Small Word

IS THERE THIS MORNING/ SOME SMALL WORD

Is there for this morning
Some small word
That will take me away
From discouragement and despair?
Which will make me feel hope again?

I don’t know-
I try now
The sunlight outside beckons
Perhaps once I am walking
The feeling will change-

Oh how hard it is day after day
Beginning in one’s own dark thoughts
And having to find the way, whatever way, out of them-

Amans Amare

A cottage small be mine, with porch
Enwreathed with ivy green,
And brightsome flowers with dew-filled bells,
’Mid brown old wattles seen.

And one to wait at shut of eve,
With eyes as fountain clear,
And braided hair, and simple dress,
My homeward step to hear.

On summer eves to sing old songs,
And talk o’er early vows,
While stars look down like angels’ eyes
Amid the leafy boughs.

When Spring flowers peep from flossy cells,
And bright-winged parrots call,
In forest paths be ours to rove
Till purple evenings fall.

The curtains closed, by taper clear
To read some page divine,
On winter nights, the hearth beside,
Her soft, warm hand in mine.

And so to glide through busy life,
Like some small brook alone
That winds its way ’mid grassy knolls,
Its music all its own.

Life Has Endless Small Unhappinesses

Life has endless small Unhappinesses
We meet them everyday-
A piece of bad news about a friend-
An errand we have failed at
And must try to do again-
A mood we did not expect to be the victim of-
A sinking coldness suddenly come as the sun disappears-
Life has endless small unhappinesses
Which we try to contend with
And which often are forgotten
Or cast into unimportance
By greater sorrows –

Life is not easy when it hurts-
And it is not easy when one does not know the way out
And it is not easy when you are being asked to give what you know you do not have -
Life is not easy
When it forces you to try and survive
By doing work you hate
And when you are criticized and abused
And made to feel that you are worth nothing-
Life is not easy when you want to be loved
And are not -
Want to be valued
And are not
Want to give
And are rejected –

Life is a dream

Life is a dream
Dream so beautiful
Life is a dream
The dream that we live

Life is a dream
That some of us likes
Life is a dream
That sometimes scares us

The life that we live
Is our life truth?
The life that we live
Sometimes makes us fool
And then we think

It the life true?
Or it’s just a dream
That’s not so true…
I’m not sure, but for me life is a Dream
A dream I’m living…

(What’s life for you?)

One Cannot Live Another Person's Life/ Even By Envying Them

ONE CANNOT LIVE ANOTHER PERSON’S LIFE

One cannot live another person’s life
Even by envying them-
Those who have more than I have
Those who have more and better
Those who were greater at what I most wanted to be
Those who have lived longer and happier
Those who outdid me in every day
They have their own lives and stories
And must contend with what they have to contend with-
I must contend not with their stories but only with mine-

And... Live the Dream

When your life is near the rainbow end
You’ll know your dreams have been a friend,
They are the pillars that uphold your hopes
To keep your feet firm on mountain slopes,
Summit climbed then the downside
Descend, with dreams feel the glide.
As some goals achieve some will be lost
So never give up for any cost,
Don’t look back with a glance
There is no second chance.
With elbow grease polish days so dull
Live the dream life is beautiful.

Life............

LIFE IS A TRUTH,
A TRUTH OF A BEING,
A TRUTH WHICH SAYS THAT LIFE IS A DREAM.
LIFE………………………
IT IS LIKE AN ICE CREAM’S CREAM,
WHICH KEEPS ON MELTING TILL IT’S FINISHED.
LIFE………………………
LIFE IS TO LIVE,
AS WITHOUT IT WE CANT LIVE.
IT IS LIFE WHO CARES ABOUT US
IT IS ALWAYS PUNCTUAL LIKE THE SCHOOL BUS.
LIFE………………………
LIFE IS TWO SIDED,
BUT SOME PEOPLE THINK IT’S ONE SIDED.
YOU NEED LOVE TO LIVE,
AND YOU NEED TO LIVE FOR LOVE.
LIFE………………………
LIFE IS A TRUTH, A TRUTH OF A BEING,
A TRUTH WHICH SAYS THAT LIFE IS A DREAM.
LIFE……………………...

Predicting Ones Life

If I could see my life early on
I don't think I could have lived, but been gone
If I could see all the pain there was to be
I would have been so frightened, I would flee
But I've never had a crystal ball
God picked me up whenever I'd fall
Life is a game of russian roulett
And quite a gamble if your'e willing to bet
I'm half way through my life and its been hard
I've had to live each day on guard
Some memories painful, some filled with joy
I've been loved and I've been someone's toy
Most of it I wouldn't want to relive
A few times, oh what I wouldn't give
They say we all have our cross to bare
In my life it's not always been fair!
