| Make This Motion Count |

Whenever I start to think of your eyes

Gazing upon her lips…

I think instead of the loud laughs of my friends

Of loud guitars that fill the winter nights in the mountains

I think of all the airports I have been in

I think of my little Golf and the missions I go on, alone and free,

I think of my mom and dad, and our lounge in Durban

I think of staircases and doors and windows

Which open and close and have beginnings and endings

Like every part of life,

I think of driving past the Drama Department and the actors cheering me

And I think it’s alright,

It is all alright

It is alright.

  1. Oh my…this “driving past the Drama Department and the actors cheering me” completes the story and sets the backdrop for the other lines…well done!

    • Aw yay! Thank you 😀 it’s kinda sad that my writing improves with every shit boy experience i have… maybe tis the curse of the poets 😛

  2. nothing like a douchebag to get the ol’ creative juices flowing! LOL

    I really like this one! I’m trying to change the way I think, so the idea of consciously changing from a negative way of thinking to a positive one is nice to explore.

    • That’s a rad thing to do, and a difficult one. I used to keep a diary where I wrote 3 positive things for each day that happened. it was my homework diary too, so on the same page, every day, i saw all the crazy, stressful work I had to do, all the crap stuff that happened, as well as those 3 positive things…it really helped 🙂

  3. ooh, good idea! the last few days I’ve been very stressed out and focusing on the icky parts of life…I need to be more faithful about counting my blessings.
