No Worries

No worries now
no sacred cow
no hand upon
a furrowed brow

No imagined slights
no late night fights
no wise insights
no fatal bites

No love remiss
no midnight kiss
no flight to bliss
no more of this

No painful dreams
of love's lost schemes
no possible themes
where life redeems

No shared domain 
where some remain
no trying again
on another plain

No worries now
no sacred cow
no hand upon
a furrowed brow

Who's Heart

Who's heart is it anyway?
that lives to breath another day
and somehow finds another course
without succumbing to remorse
To grow compassion without fight
Does love conquer the swords of might?
or naivety cloud the mind
so that other's plights leave us blind
Is that sword mightier than the fist
or can we find another twist
a way to serve by standing by
to pick up survivors on the fly
Lay down the anger and the angst
the confusion between for and against
which twists and turns in every case
and friends take on the enemy's face

I'll wait and watch and surely see
what this has got to do with me

He's a man so he can fix things
one of the perks being a guy brings
He's a man so he's allowed to curse
say "son of a gun" and probably worse :-)
He's a man he's allowed to be wrong
and nobody's standin' around with a gong
He's a man, he better not cry
or all of his buddies will want to know why
He's a man and always a great lover
at least that's what he'll tell you brother
He's a man so a lot is expected
not supposed to get upset the times he's rejected
He's a man, supposed to act that way
no matter what other people do or say
He's a man, gee it must be tough
being my special guy,
a diamond in the rough.
