I Don’t Want to Be Saved

Composed 11/19/13
Description: n/a

Is that what it will take?
Downturned lips and
Tear glazed eyes
Dainty sniffs
And hopeless sighs?

A slump, a funk
A bad day, bad week
My mother dies
My grades: all Cs?

If that’s what it takes
A need to be saved
I’ll hold out my hope
Another man, another day.

  1. You’re absolutely right. That’s not what it takes. You are confusing the stimulus and the response. A child being born often results in a strong emotional response, but an emotional response never produces a child.
