Care Anymore


When did it become

hit and runs

championing trophies

divide and conquest

How did we destroy your beauty

stop enjoying the simplicities

of conversation

noticing your pet peeves

hearing that sweet symphonic

sound in your laughter

how did we start putting

sex before sex

wheres the value in investments

plundering and pillaging

adventurous lust compelling

guts for glory

where is the chase

what makes it worth while

knowing you before I know you

knowing what I like about you

before  knowing how to like you for you

how can one determine worth

when countless others have tried

to show me for you

I am at a loss beginning to think that

this is how the world should

treat you

despite my values and belief in courtship

one day you will be my daughter

or he your son

and I will have to live with

the world I have helped shape

convince you

to look at me the same

as I look at you

where is forever in that

I pray that control and discipline

continue to direct me

in the way of valuing so i can be

the reason for my own not to

devalue


How do you….


How do you do that

mask your emotions

and hide your thoughts

 

How do you

 

pretend to be happy

act ok

let them have their way

 

How do you

 

handle the pain

not blame those for the reign

continue to smile

 

How do you

 

still care

still help

still offer chances

 

how do you

 

believe what they tell you

listen to their lies

remain so calm

 

how do you?

 

Its simple

I know who and what I am

and exactly what I’m not

no one can change that but me
