Lyrics - Mother and Father

I think I'm a teen-age girl at heart. Why? I dig the Katy Perry songs. Well, I think it is because I love the melodic methods she uses. They are pop and skip, rhythm and bop. They also empower her core audience, and this I appreciate. The lyrics “Mother and Father” are meant to accompany a Katy Perry type musical pacing.


Mother and Father
Poem for Day 186 – 20150705

Mother Nature
delivers the wonderful gifts.
Father Time
supplies the boons of older age.
Let's not and say
we did these things,
awards for living
to an elder year.

Stretch marks,
stomach paunch,
gray hair.
I'll not deny,
I don't like.

Deny Mother,
ask her to step aside.
Deny Father,
tell him to stop the clock.
It's not to be,
they'll have their due,
you'll feel their touch,
embellished intentions
on your body and soul.

Crows feet,
bad back,
sore feet.
Is it fair,
I don't think.

It's so sad that
there are some things
inevitable
gonna happen to
you in their due day.
Fight as you may,
struggling to undo
awards for living large.

Stretch marks,
stomach paunch,
gray hair.
Crows feet,
bad back,
sore feet.
Why oh why
are you in my life?

Here's the true gift,
these are admission
to a life lived among
those you love dear.
Life you hold strong,
friends and lovers,
fierce passion sprung,
and above it all,
leaving your mark greater
than Mother and Father.
