(When You Go Correct) The Hormones In Your Body

When you go correct the hormones in your body
There’ll be things you now can’t go do and
They’ll be the thing that even before you wouldn’t
You most certainly wouldn’t have wanted to go do

When you go correct the hormones in your body
There’ll be things you now can go do and
They’ll be the thing that if before you could’ve
You most certainly would have wanted to go do

You never wanted the ability to grow a beard
But you had it in too many spades full
You wished you could’ve been able to grow breasts
But you lacked that ability so very much completely

When you go correct the hormones in your body
You’ll see on your body, feel in your head
Changes that took a long time coming to you
Changes that took too long to come to you

When you go correct the hormones in your body
You’ll end up laughing and crying so much and
Asking God why I didn’t go do this sooner
But mostly you’ll be thankful you took the plunge

Wanna Be Healthy And Whole (As I Can Ever Be)

I keep slowly over time
Leaving places till I am
Some place new but still
With the baggage from before
I holed myself back from
Letting myself go and blossoming
Into the person I need
To be if I wanna
Be as healthy and whole
As I can ever be

So this time when I
Leave this place I will
Not take my baggage but
Only take my hard earned
Courage to my next destination
Courage to let myself blossom
Into the person I need
To be if I wanna
Be as healthy and whole
As I can ever be

Courage to let myself blossom
Into the person I need
To be if I wanna
Be as healthy and whole
As I can ever be

Wanna be healthy and whole
As I can ever be

A Woman

You were inside of my head
On the day I was born
And since then you have always
Always been inside of my head
Yeah you have always been better
Then what they see on me

I want them to see you
You on the outside of me
‘Cause you are still inside
Inside my head, inside of my head
You have always been inside of
You are inside of my head

You are the woman inside of
Inside of my head is a
A woman who is you and
You are totally me and
I want you on the outside
On the outside of me

You were inside of my head
On the day I was born
And since then you have always
Always been inside of my head
Inside my head, inside of my head
You are inside of my head

Announcing, “Primary”!

I am posing for the moment, from posting my original poetry, to share here with you a new soundscape of mine called “Primary”. It explores the feelings that encompass the initial tentative love of learning that I and many other folks experienced when we where first getting to know the world around us as young children. Primary will be included, in higher quality, as the first track on my upcoming album called Various Shades of Blue which explores many of the feelings that have encompassed my life up to this point (both the good and the bad). Various Shades of Blue will be available, upon release, at: https://devinkiramurphyartist.bandcamp.com/album/v…of-blue. So enjoy having a listen to this soundscape composition, and then come back here to Lyricsofmylife to explore some of the new original poetry that I will be posting in the days to come.

I Don’t Have A Girl

I don’t have a girl
Who is looking back from
The big floor length mirror
Who is looking back from
The embrace of my arms

I don’t have a girl
‘Cause then I never said
Who I truly was inside
‘Cause yet I haven’t said
What I need to hold

I Don’t have a girl
‘Cause I’m still trying to
Be more truly completely me
‘Cause I’m still needing to
Be more truly completely me

When I’m really loving me
I’ll be the girl in
The big floor length mirror
I’ll get a girl in
The embrace of my arms

I don’t have a girl
Who is looking back from
The big floor length mirror
Who is looking back from
The embrace of my arms

You Struggle For Acceptance Into Appropriate Places

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

Being not yourself is simple it
Takes none of what you got
But being what your society wants

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

Being inauthentic it takes no work
And being insincere is achieved easily
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 mostly you
Struggle for acceptance into appropriate places

You struggle for acceptance into appropriate places

Just Human

I’ve bumbled and stumbled
And I’ve cried but
Don’t scream anymore ‘cause
The know-how I’ve lost

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

This makes me less
Than a saint and
Sometimes a bit uncourageous
But mostly just human

More times than not
I’ve been scared but
I’ve been sad and
Upset more than 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://devinmkiraurphyartist.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.
