All the Time

January 13th, 2019

I’m sad all the time.
“How are you?” “Sad.”
I’m sad all the time.
I’m sad ’cause of all the hate & the fighting & the crime.
I’m sad ’cause I haven’t yet turned water into wine.
I’m sad ’cause it seems we haven’t got enough time.
I’m sad ’cause I didn’t invent the perfect rhyme..
I’m sad ’cause I’m sad
All the time.

I’m glad all the time.
“How are you?” “Glad.”
I’m glad all the time.
I’m glad ’cause I know it’ll all turn out fine.
I’m glad ’cause someone else turned the water into wine.
I’m glad ’cause I’ve been given one or two good rhymes.
I’m glad ’cause I don’t have to suffer for my crimes.
I’m glad all the time.

I’m lonely all the time.
“How are you?” “Lonely.”
I’m lonely ’cause it seems no one understands my pain.
I’m lonely ’cause it seems like y’all bent on selfish gain.
I’m lonely ’cause friends still live outside and there falls a hard hard rain.
I’m lonely ’cause friends still live outside and I am wrapped in shame.
I’m lonely all the time.

I’m friendly all the time.
“How are you?” “Friendly.”
I’m friendly ’cause I don’t know yet who’s the victim & who’s to blame.
I’m friendly ’cause I know I’m both and I don’t f*ck around with fame.
I’m friendly ’cause my heart is wild & my tongue cannot be tamed.
I’m friendly ’cause friendship can cure the sick & heal the lame so
I’m friendly all the time.

I’m in mourning all the time.
“How are you?” “I’m ok.”
I’m in mourning all the time.
I mourn ’cause I never find a useful word to say.
I mourn for all the moments that I’ve let just pass away.
I mourn for all the children never seen the light of day.
I mourn for all the people who can hear but won’t obey.
I’m in mourning all the time.

I’m blessed all the time.
I’m blessed ’cause of no thing that I do
’cept those I’ll only learn when this life is through
I’m blessed ’cause of absolutely nothing that I do.
I’m blessed only so that I can share this all with you.
I’m blessed all the time.
