Keepiní up with the factíry bustle and the
Side hustle is runniní me ragged.
I barely have a moment to unwind.

A woundís bleeding in my soul and a good
Meal would make me whole.
But I push it all aside. I ainít got the time.

My life is filled with deadlines.
I canít resent them Ďcause theyíre all mine.
I canít stop until I reach the next plateau.

My engineís feeding on my frustration
About my education on the state of our nation.
But all I really want is to take it slow.

And all I see is RedÖ And all I see is RedÖ
And all I see is RedÖ And all I see is RedÖ

My heartís been broken and the keys all stolen
But I always keep a spare right here.
Ďnd my heart still burns like a Solar Flare.

You canít keep a strong man down.
Itís just something I have found.
And Iíve looked for signs of scars, but theyíre not there.

I agree with God, I wonít be right
Until Iím spending all my nights
As a human heater for the warmth-impaired.

Sure, itís a seasonal job
Push me away if you get hot.
When I wake, Iíll see you glow like the sun runniní through your hair.

And all I see is RedÖ And all I see is RedÖ
And all I see is RedÖ And all I see is RedÖ


My passion, it defines me
Whatever the occasion be.
Just know that I am giving it my all.

Iíll fight Ďtill Iím on the floor.
Love like Iíve never been hurt before.
I just need someone to catch me should I fall.

I donít like to ask for help.
I canít do this all myself
But Iím just that brave and dumb to want to try.

Iíve got my bow in hand and
A straight shot, just understand
How useful we could be at each otherís side.

And all I see is RedÖ And all I see is RedÖ
And all I see is RedÖ And all I see is RedÖ

Itís like infra-Red... Itís like infra-RedÖ
Itís like infra-RedÖ Itís like infra-RED!

This left me a little confused. It's very good, but somehow I missed the point of "all I see is red". Since I don't know a lot about poetry, others will probably relate much better. However, I really enjoyed it with that one exception.

Very cool lines: "I donít like to ask for help.
I canít do this all myself
But Iím just that brave and dumb to want to try."
I thoroughly enjoyed!

The flow is good, but I didn't get it. I'm not into poetry, so it could be me.
Marilyn Schnepp 05/25/07
Good try! I guess I'm a little dense, 'cause I never got the point. Not the author's fault...it's mine.
Sharlyn Guthrie05/28/07
I like the voice of this poem and I definitely appreciate your transparency.
Benjamin Graber05/30/07
This would make a great song! I enjoyed this one; good job.
