You Struggle For Acceptances Into Appropriate Places

Being authentic it take much work
And being sincere is achieved hardly
But being not yourself is simple

Being not yourself is simple it
Takes nun off what you got
But being what your society wants

Take the easy way and you
Are miserable but mustily you don’t
Struggle for acceptances into appropriate places

Being inauthentic it take no work
And being insincere is easily achieved
But being truly yourself is hard

Being truly yourself is hard it
Takes all you got to fight
What your society wants you being

Take the hard way and you
Are happy some but mustily you
Struggle for acceptances into appropriate places

You struggle for acceptances into appropriate places

Just Human

I’ve bumbled and stumbled
And I’ve cried but
Don’t scream anymore ‘cause
I no longer know-how

It’s all ‘cause I’ve
Not known how to
When it counted most
Be my true self

This makes me less
Then a saint and
Sometimes a bit uncourageous
But motley just human

More times then not
I’ve been scared but
I’ve been sad and
Upset more then frightened

It’s all ‘cause I’ve
Not known how to
When it counted most
Be my true self

This makes me less
Then a saint and
Sometimes a bit uncourageous
But motley just human

Motley just human, human
Motley just human, human

I try now to
Be my self but
Still I cry thinking
Of what I missed

It’s all ‘cause I’ve
Not known how to
When it counted most
Be my true self

This makes me less
Then a saint and
Sometimes a bit uncourageous
But motley just human

I’ll Be Ok Again Come Someday (‘Cause’ve All You Do)

I don’t wanna cry
I don’t wanna hurt
I don’t wanna feel this pain
Just want you to fix this
You can’t fix this

So I’ll stumble on
With all your support
With all your much needed help
It’ll give me hope that I’ll
Be ok again someday

I’ll be ok again
Ok again someday thanks
Thanks to all your big support
And all your much needed help
Your much needed help

I don’t wanna cry
I don’t wanna hurt
I don’t wanna feel this pain
I’ll be ok again come someday
‘Cause’ve all you do

I Am Not Running

I am not running
Not going anywhere fast
Instead slowly I am
Recovering to healthy me

To healthy me ‘cause
I have already dealt
With too much shit
In my own life

Recovering to healthy me
So people get to
See the authentic me
At least one time

Announcing, “Feel The Slowness”!

I am taking a momentary pause now from posting my poetry so I can bring you an announcement. I am proud to announce that my long-awaited second soundscape album called “Feel The Slowness” has dropped via my Bandcamp (https://devinmurphyartist.bandcamp.com/album/feel-the-slowness).

And Feel The Slowness is an audio album made up of 14 individual soundscapes which aim to get the listener to feel the quality or state that being slow can bring about, hence slowness. It should be mentioned that some of these soundscapes are intended to bring about in the listener a slower sense of slowness then some of the other soundscapes. It should also be mentioned that it is best if these soundscapes are not listened to while operating any power tools, heavy equipment or wile driving any kind of motorized vehicle as they have been created with the hopes of absorbing and relaxing the listener.

I Live In An Urban Landscape

I live in an urban landscape
Not far from a train track
A freight train track which does run alongside the big ocean harbour

But I don’t see the trains
Or even the transit ferries much
Instead in my room I listen to music ‘cause I’m not well

In future I’ll be so fine
Maybe living in another urban landscape
Near a commuter rail track which isn’t far from a great lake

My family be near to me
With my brother ‘round the corner
And good community embracing me that I can better with my presence

I live in an urban landscape
Not far from a train track
A freight train track which does run alongside the big ocean harbour

One Slow Move At A Time

Our scars they help make us
They help make the wonderful us
But we know if we could’ve avoided them then we’d avoided them

Our scars they help make us
They help make the wonderful us
But if we could’ve not gone through them then we’d not have

Our good times help make us
They help make the wonderful us
But we know if we could’ve had more we’d have had more

Our good times help make us
They help make the wonderful us
But if we could’ve gone through more of them then we’d have

We are who we are and
We can’t change ourselves just go
We can just go and make ourselves oh so much more better

We can just go and make ourselves oh so much more better
Even if it’s just a slow
One slow move at a time

Announcing, “Slowness Number Five”!

I have not had any poetic inspiration for a wile now. But when my poetic inspiration returns to me, I will post the results right here on Lyricsofmylife.

So for the moment enjoy having a listen to this soundscape composition, and when my poetic inspiration returns to me so will the poems here on Lyricsofmylife.

 

Announcing, “Slowness Number Eleven”!

I Am Continuing On

I am so tired of
My vary own inharmonious body
My worry about my future
And how this tires me
And necessitates me continuing on

I am so tired of
All of this continuing on
I can hardly wait for
The make it to come
So I will continue on

I will continue on even
If it is slow sometimes
Even if it necessitates sometimes
Me stopping for a while
So I can have respite

I am so tired of
All of this continuing on
I can hardly wait for
The make it to come
So I will continue on

I am continuing on
