Cocount

Van had only ever seen a coconut on cartoons. When we went to the butcher’s the other day, he saw one and was so excited!

Except Me

Photo by Camila Quintero Franco on Unsplash

This is so stupid and pointless.
It is pointless to get upset.
I have to move on.

Why does everyone else get to have lifelong friends,
except me?
Why does everyone else get to have a wonderful support system,
except me?

I have nowhere to go and nowhere to vent.
No one to back me up.
And I just want to scream
But they won’t care if I scream,
they won’t care about anything I do.

I am Tired

I am tired of pretending that I am okay when I’m not.
I am tired of trying to be someone that I’m not.
You don’t like me as I am; you want me to change, but why.
I am tired of making excuses for how I act.
Why did I try to work on things when no one else cares?


I am tired of being lonely but if that is what I have to do to be myself so be it.
I am angry and want to last out but it won’t matter.


Nothing I say or do matters to them.
They don’t care what happens to me.


I want to cry and lay on the bed all day, but it won’t solve anything.
I want to lash out but it won’t matter.
Nothing matters.

Outsider/Outcast

What do you do when you hear someone doesn’t trust you?
What do you do when your words fall on deaf ears?
What do you do when you are left on the outside?
What do you do when nothing seems to work?

You’re an outcast, an outsider.
Left on your own. All on your own.
You’re an outsider, an outcast.
But is it really all that you are?
You’re an outcast, an outsider.
Left on your own.
You’re an outsider, an outcast.
But is there more to who you are?

You become the Outsider, the outcast,
But you don’t know why. You don’t know why.
You became hated or is this just in your mind?
They curse at you but you don’t know why.

How do you solve a problem like this?
Do you just let it go?
Do you question everything you ever thought?
And you wonder why no one has told you.
Why don’t they trust you or talk to you?


You’re an outcast, an outsider.
Left on your own. All on your own.
You’re an outsider, an outcast
But is it really all that you are?
You’re an outcast, an outsider.
Left on your own.
You’re an outsider, an outcast.
But is there more to who you are?

Drive

I’m driving home from work today.
I hate this drive, it’s killing me.
The drive is so boring, it takes so long.
And all I want to do is be home right now.
All I want to do is be home right now.

I hate driving to work every morning.
It takes so much time.
And all want, all I want is to be home right now.

Getting up every morning before the sun.
It takes too long to drive each day.
I really just want to be home right now.
I just want to be home with my family.
Home with my family!

When I was younger, I wanted to be alone.
I didn’t want to be in a crowd or with anyone.
And now I’m older, and all I want is to be home with them.
All I want to do is be home with them.

I’m driving home from work today.
I hate this drive, it’s killing me.
The drive is so boring, it takes so long.
And all I want to do is be home right now.
All I want to do is be home right now.

I hate driving to work every morning.
It takes so much time.
And all want, all I want is to be home right now.

It takes so long to drive every day.
Back and forth and all I want to do is be home with my kids.
Be home with my family, home with my family.

The drive is so boring; it makes me sing.
About things, I pass on the way.
But all I want to do, all I want to do is be home right now.

Every day, the drive is a drag.
Back and forth to work and home.
When all I want to do is be home with my family.
Home with my family.

I’m driving home from work today.
I hate this drive, it’s killing me.
The drive is so boring; it takes so long.
And all I want to do is be home right now.
All I want to do is be home right now.

I hate driving to work every morning.
It takes so much time.
And all want, all I want is to be home right now.

Every day leaving before the sin and all I want to do is stay with my kids.
I see them sleeping, all snug in their beds.
I kiss them goodbye; they don’t even wake.
And all I want to do, all I want to do is stay home with them.

Driving home, and this drive makes me crazy.
I just want to scream.
Let’s go faster so I can get to them.

The drive’s so long, one straight road.
I’m driving home from work today.
I hate this drive, It’s killing me.
It takes so long.
All I want to do is be home right now.

Cruise Control

May be an image of road and text that says 'CRUISE CONTROL'

I’m driving by on cruise control.
Watching others just pass me by.
Watching the world speed on by.
I’m driving by on cruise control.
Watching others just pass me by.
Watching the world speed on by.

Sometimes I just don’t know which way to go.
Should I turn left or right?
Should I keep on driving on cruise control?

I’m driving by on cruise control.
Watching others just pass me by.
Watching the world speed on by.
I’m driving by on cruise control.
Watching others just pass me by.
Watching the world speed on by.

Watching the world just pass me by.
Everything goes by so very fast.
Speeding by as I go by.
When you’re living life on Cruise control.

I see your lights up ahead.
I see your flashes but,
I’m staying in my lane.
As I drive by on cruise control.

Maybe I should take a chance
See where this turn will take me.
Put my foot down on the gas.
See where this road takes me.
See how far I can go.
Will I reach my goal or should I stay on cruise control?

Should I make a stand or stay where I am?
Sooner or later I’ll make my move
Sooner or later I’ll reach my goal

Make that turn and,
Put my foot down on the gas!
I’m at the wheel, I’m following!
It’s all my choice which way I go.

Should I make that turn,
Take a chance.
See where this turn will take me.
Put my foot down on the gas.
See how far I can go.
Will I reach my goal or should I stay on cruise control?
